Steak
With Knife restaurant, 3 time James Beard-nominated and “Top Chef” contestant John Tesar brings a fresh, new steakhouse dining experience to The Highland Dallas. The menu features all-natural born and raised Texas meats, complementing “old school” classics like 45-day dry-aged sirloin and bone-in rib eye with “new school” evolutions that include culotte and flat iron. In addition to larger “slabs” of meat for group dining — including a variety of aged, exotic steaks — the menu is rounded out by an extensive charcuterie program, bacon and ham tastings, sausages, sandwiches, salads and pasta dishes.

In addition to a sophisticated dining room, Knife offers a flagstone garden patio with a fireplace. A private dining room with its own lounge and fireplace is available for special events.

Knife was recently named “40 Most Important Restaurants of the Decade" by Esquire Magazine. Additionally, Knife was recently named "10 Best Restaurant Meals of 2019" by Fo

    Service was very slow for us being the only table at first and the waitress put in the wrong order for one of the guests so it took even longer. The food was not that impressive for the price.

    Overall a great experience. Staff were attentive...food and drinks were wonderful. Plan ahead for parking or use the valet. The restaurant has a barrier between the bar and dining area that does not allow the noise from the bar to disturb a nice conversation. Highly recommend.

    Our reservation time was 6:30.. salads and appetizers came quickly. Our food didn’t come until 8:15. Server came over a few times to say it would be coming but it took forever. Then the steak had to go back because it was rare rather than well done. When they brought it back it was really good. The manager apologized and took a steak off of our bill. Food was good but service wasn’t

    This was hands down one of the best steaks and all around meals we’ve had all year. We were there with our 20 month old so made an early reservation so if he got fussy he wouldn’t bother many people. There was only one other table there when we were seated. Everyone was very nice an accommodation. We had the sashimi, 44 farms strip, carrots, avocado fries, mushrooms, Mac and cheese and creme brûlée. Everything was fantastic. The steak was the standout. Even through out Covid 19 we’ve been fortunate to be able to eat out frequently living in Las Vegas. Knife had been on my radar for a while for Top Cher reasons. Easily the best steak I’ve had in years. I don’t know what kind of tickeration was going on in that kitchen, but it shouldn’t be hard for other restraints and steakhouses to take note and just do simple, perfectly cooked meals. We will definitely be coming back every time we are in Dallas.

    Service was outstanding. I bought the 90 day aged Ribeye which was fantastic, but i feel as if i could have just ordered a regular ribeye and saved $$$. Wouldn't have tasted a difference. The yellowtail with grapefruit was phenomenal.

    Very nice meal with a business colleague. Their first visit to Knife. They were impressed. The Curio cocktail was amazing. I had the long bone short rib which I think is the best value on the menu. Prepared Sous vide for 72 hours then grilled to you desired temperature. My colleague had a filet. We both had chimichurri sauce. Mushrooms and mashed potatoes completed the entree’s.

    Our first time to this location (as we have been to the Plano location). We go out to fine dining frequently in the Dallas area so we do know what to expect from a quality dining experience. My steak was VERY undercooked. I ordered medium PLUS and it came out medium rare to rare. Not even close to medium. My wife ordered medium and her steak was cooked much more than mine. I did send it back and a manager never checked in on the steak. One did come by the table and did a general check in. Our server was very good and attentive.
