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 an 18-hour braised crispy pig’s head — 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 “Best Steakhouse” by D Magazine and named "Best New Restaurant 2014" by Esquire Magazine,

Knife had exceptional service with average food. Given the hype of this restaurant, we added it to the list of the restaurants to visit. We were surprised at the average food. The service is fantastic but unfortunately you go for the food and it left something to be desired.

We went to Knife to explore their steak menu and some of their appetizers. While the service was impeccable, the food itself was only good, not great as expected of the price point of some of their menu items. For example, the bread that came with the appetizers was rather cold when a warm piece of bread to warm your hands and belly after coming in from the cold would have been much appreciated. The 45 day dry aged steak was good and interesting; however, it was not significantly better than some of the regular, non-aged steaks I've had elsewhere.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Our waiter made some wonderful suggestions. What is not to love about a bacon sampler? The dry-aged bone in ribeye was fabulous and perfectly cooked. The truffle infused pasta was another hit.

Excellent food and service. I wish the tables were a little farther apart.

After months of wanting to go to Knife for the 240 day aged ribeye, I finally had my chance. I cook a mean steak, so to taste a 240 day was going to be great. My wife and I got to the restaurant, and had great drinks at the bar. When we sat down, our waiter was very attentive and courteous. I asked how much the 240 day aged ribeye was, and he said "$210". While it may sound expensive to some, at 32 oz, I was ready to roll. He then informed me they were out. I said, "How about a 239 day ribeye?" Nope. "How about as close as you can get to 240 days?" He said the oldest they have is the 45 day aged ribeye (44 farms 107). I asked him if that means I have to wait 195 days before I can come back for a 240 day (I was very understanding and polite and so was he through all of this). He said he would go ask, and when he came back I was told that I could only get the 45 day aged ribeye. Feeling like Steve Martin in the movie LA Story where he is told that he can only have the duck, I agreed to have the 45 day steak. I asked the table next to us how their exact ribeye was cooked because it looked pretty rare, and they said they ordered it medium, which is how I love mine. On expensive steaks, rarely do you get a steak cooked to the temp that you actually want, because if the restaurant over does it, they have to toss it and start over. So they undercook them, and in this case they clearly did as it was rare. So, I ordered mine medium well. When I got the steak, it was medium well and the exterior was not seared, but actually burnt. I will say that the less blackened areas of the steak were quite good though, which is why it is not a total loss.

I get it. The website says limited supply, but come on. Saturday night at 8pm? And if someone really wants an exotic, you can't cut a ribeye that is 239 days, or 210 days? I can do it. So, yes, I am a little disappointed. The next night I stayed home and cooked one of the best filets my friends and family had ever had.

Very disappointing . The steak and mushrooms were average at best. I $125.00 steak should not be average. The service was excellent

It was a great experience. Food was heavenly but it is not inexpensive.
