    To start off I got a res here because I thought it was a fun vibe with music and just chill. When I got there I was disappointed that there was hookah everywhere. I wish the smell wasn’t so overwhelming and that there was a designated room for it. I could barely enjoy my dinner. I also felt very rushed by the servers and it was fast paced.

    Went on a Sunday. At about 8pm it got quite packed, noisy, and service dwindled. But before that service was GREAT! Food and drinks were great as well

    Nice date for my lady and I. The vibe was cool and laid back. The setting was everything. Food was great I got a medium steak and she got lamb chops both were cooked perfectly. Definitely going back.

    I understand how important table turn over is, that way reservations don’t get backed up, but my wife and I sat down and the restaurant was so cold that we immediately wanted to leave. Our waitress was very nice, but didn’t really blow us away with her customer service. She only checked up on us once during our dinner. Our appetizer and dinner came out at the same time, which kinda made ordering 7 shrimps for $24 pointless. We were so uncomfortable that we didn’t order drinks, desert or anything extra. We finished our salmon, took some pictures and left. Will not be returning.

    Amazing food, a little expensive for what it was but solid portion sizes. It's a beautiful restaurant so the ambience is really great and makes for a good date night I'd say, or even a gathering for friends. I wasn't fond of the gratuity getting added for a 2 person check but I guess that's just how they do things, haven't really experienced that specifically at a restaurant before. Nevertheless food is good so that's the big takeaway here

    This was our first time dining here and we came for Valentines Day dinner. The security at the door should be alert if they know they need to check IDs, instead of “WHOA WHOA WHOA I NEED TO SEE YOUR ID”. It was unnecessary and we had no idea we needed to stop before going inside. Once inside, the DJs music was blaring so I had to give the hostess our reservation name about 3 times because she couldn’t hear. I would’ve preferred that the DJ played more r&b music since it was Valentine’s Day. The music vibe was giving Saturday night in Miami or Las Vegas, and not Valentines Day in the middle of the week. The food was pretty good overall, but my boyfriend’s steak was very tough and chewy at medium well. His drink was also very weak. My seafood pasta was good but the clams had a very “fishy” taste, as the shells were closed and unseasoned on the inside. The crème brûlée was good but should’ve been chilled a lot longer. The taste was good, but it was “soupy” instead of firm and creamy. Our server was very pleasant and attentive and I did like that they gave all of the women guests single roses. I also appreciated the hostess taking our picture at the rose wall before we left.

    Service was great, the restaurant was beautiful. Very cute touch giving out roses to the women. The sides were flavorful and the drinks tasted great, but the lamb was completely bland and unseasoned. I love all the extras but the food is the core of the experience and for the meat to be so bland was disappointing. I probably won’t give them another try as there are many other restaurants in the area and I would hate to spend so much money again on a dish I don’t fully enjoy.

    Great restaurant and good food. It was reasonably price but prepared to prepay for the valet parking @ a rate of about $20. There is no public self park in the area which is typical for Buckhead Atlanta.

    I chose Knife to celebrate my birthday and it was amazing. From the ambiance, food, and vibe just absolutely perfect. The decor is beautiful and modern which we loved. The hookah had to be one of the best in our city.

    When one of the servers broke a glass at our table; everything should have been replaced as a precaution and the tables wipes down immediately. We should not have to ask for that which we did. Only one drink was replaced. The waters were not. Leaving this comment as an opportunity for improvement. Train staff to remove everything and replace as a precaution. Thanks.

    I thought the restaurant was more upscale but it was a long the lines of a typical Atlanta restaurant that has a DJ and Hookah. The food was decent, but the atmosphere is great if you’re looking for a place that has a true Atlanta vibe. And what I mean is the club signs, sparklers, hookah, photographer that SELLS you photos in a frame, and a DJ. Oh, and if you’re not smoking hookah but the table next to you is, enjoy! I will not be returning.

    My girlfriend and I dined on a Friday night. We had a reservation for 10p and were seated within 15 mins. The food, drinks, and hookah were great. The only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars is the service. The staff and management are extremely friendly, but have no sense of urgency. The kitchen staff was on it though. All of the food came out quickly and was very good. We will absolutely be returning.

    The valet parking should be managed better than it is. We had to park across the street because it was full ??? Having a reservation for 5 people you would think we wouldn’t have problems using their valet correct ? This is why we decided not to go there as often as we would have loved to. Other than that it’s an excellent place to eat

    First impressions are everything. My first impression of Knife— why am I paying you $20 for valet to eat at your restaurant? I enjoy fine dining as much as the next person, but not even Nobu charges $20 for parking! The alternative:? “you can park next door, the attendant may charge you $10 or $20 or you may get booted if he’s not there and you park anyway.” Further, I waited approximately 15-20 minutes for one attendant to park two cars in front of me— undoubtedly, they were likely asking about the expensive mandatory valet parking— before I was finally assisted. Therefore, it didn’t matter that my food was actually tasty. The feeling of being hijacked in the parking lot before I could even enter the building was enough for this to be a one and done visit for me. Especially since parking directly across the street and at adjacent food establishments is gratuity-based.

    Food was really good. Beautiful place but also had sports bar video screens playing at the bar, which is in the same open space as the restaurant. Didn’t seem to fit. Odd you can’t reach them by phone. We would have brought more than 2 of us if we could have called.

    Your just coming for the ambience food was mediocre. It wasn’t the worst but it wasn’t the best. It was OK I’ve had way better and can get similar items from the menu at other places for cheaper prices and taste a lot more better server wasn’t really the best most of the time we waited for our server to come take our order, the server was never really to be found. We came for a birthday dinner and the birthday dinner surprise wasn’t really all that astonishing. It was just very quiet with someone holding a happy birthday sign, and a cake with a flare like candle. It’s a 2/5 for me you can find more better places with just as amazing ambience and better food and better service. Also their valet parking of $20 which isn’t really necessary we just came for a birthday dinner.
