I’ve been to many rodizio‘s in Churrascaria’s and this by far has been the most resembling a expensive Golden corral. The food quality was poor at best the meat we’re all serve the rare unless you ask them to cook it longer. The quality of the meat was not good at all the only redeeming quality is if you order an actual fillet or a sirloin from your waiter or waitress. The sides were all underwhelming at best. I would not go back to this restaurant

Giant restaurant, no outside seating, ambiente like in a train station. Food was good, especially the Chimichuri. Definitely not a romantic place.

They have a new pasta table available where you can make your pasta the way you wanted. In my opinion the pasta table was the best

Great experience with the food, service and price. Very well located restaurant with a lot of food options. I took my family to celebrate my engagement and the waitress went the extra mile with the champagne and a nice cake for her. Definitely coming back to this place whenever I’m back to Miami

Not the waiter fault, because he had like 10 family tables to himself, so service was EXTREMELY slow. had to ask for everything like 5 times. for the price you pay, something as simple as linens would be nice on the tables. we had a party of 8 and 5 of us got sick afterwards.

Not too much of a good selection for vegetarians. The other 3 in my party did not like any of the meat selections either. Too dry. The service was hardly there. 2 adults and 2 kids $150 and that was with a slight discount for the vegetarian order

Admittedly, I should have done more research on this restaurant. If I had, I would not have gone there. All of the food is buffet style. The cold food was acceptable. After a salad, you go stand in line for your meat. If you don't speak Spanish, you will have difficulty communicating your selection. I did not find the meat particularly tasty. In fact, it was bland. Not at all what I was expecting.

I'm not that fond of buffets, and did not realize this was a buffet when I made the reservation. Although most of the food choices wee labeled, the meats at the grill were not and it was confusing. The best thing I can say is the desserts were amazing.

Good for value food however the service was shocking, luckily we had Katty who seemed to be the only waitress in the place who knew how to smile. All the rest of the waitresses seemed to have an attitude problem from the moment we walked in.
All in all a good value for food restaurant.

Our second time at the Knife. The food quality for the grill, in both meat and vegetables, has gone down. The only seasoning you can taste on the vegetables is cheese, which isn't really a seasoning. As for the meat, the cuts and selection are not premium other than the chicken breast. For the salad and appetizer bar -- delicious. Maybe I'll go back for a third time because of the cold dishes, but it's up in the air. If you are in the mood for what is essentially a meat buffet, there are better options like a Brazilian steakhouse.

A Nice dinner at the knife... Great variety of food . For meat lovers of course!
Négative points: too much noisy and air conditionning very high so it's a bit cold inside.

Wanted to try this place because my friends recommended it. I love meat and when you add "all you can eat" to the offer, it's a no-brainer. I don't eat a lot, but I like to have options.
If you are not familiar with the place you have no idea there's an elevator on the back, so we climbed the stairs with our huge and heavy stroller. Nobody will open the door or greet you and there was plenty of "bored" waitresses at the very entrance. After reaching our reserved table we waited for about 10 minutes before someone approached us... and again, there was plenty of available and happily chatting service people that barely spoke any English. I know we are in Miami, but as far as I remember this city is still part of the USA.
Most of the salads were withered and the meat was just OK. Nothing to brag about. The place was not that crowded, but it sounded like a sports bar during the Super Bowl.
My wife loved it better than me. Maybe because she just needed to get out the house. Anyway, those 3 stars are just to be fair.
Would I recommend it to another person? Well there's plenty of similar "all you can eat" steak houses within the same price range. I would probably recommend going to those I've given at least 4 stars.

Great place for meat lovers. Being from Argentina, i am a beef fanatic. They have a huge grill with as many meat cuts as you can imagine and their salad bar is outstanding. Fast all day before going for dinner...you will EAT..!

Argentinian buffet at Bayside on the water. Great value (bottle of wine comped with the meal - a Beringer, but drinkable) and if your expectations aren't too high, great food as well. The apps and salad bar were the stars. The grill, where you go and select what you want, was hit and miss, but the steak and blue cheese sausage were stand outs.

The restaurant provides excellent fresh food & choices; all Argentinian as it says! The only thing was that I was expecting also the waitress to be Argentinian but they weren't & I struggled understanding their Spanish. It can get a little loud which I didn't mind but it may be due to the groups. The service was excellent anyway & located my family & I as preferred by the bayside view. Unfornutately this was an option only available by the phone & not by Opentable.
