Carnivale Restaurant?

I've heard good things about Carnivale Restaurant. Is it worth trying for someone's birthday? And if so, can anyone recommend some good dishes? Thanks!

    Carnivale has a great festive atmosphere. I'd definitely recommend it for a birthday celebration, but expect good (not great) food.

      Agreed. Definately a great spot to for a birthday or to take out-of-towners. The ceviche tasting is good for an appetizer. Our group liked the pork sholder and the skirt steak for main dishes. The atmosphere is great, the food is good, but not great.
