                                          We were a party of 7 and as soon as we sat the server informed us that we needed to leave after 2 hours and a half since was the Mother's Day. This was super disappointed. first of all, there was not waiting line and second was a special day that we wanted to spend more time at the restaurant. That policy of leave after 2 hours was rude, and we did not like it. We will think about it next time that we need to make a reservation there

                                          The food was barely cooked and they seemed short staffed. The manager was great and tried to make the experience better but I left as the food was not cooked properly.

                                          Go to a different restaurant. I’ve been to many Argentinian restaurants. This was nothing but a cheap self service joint. First of all there was chicken cutlet under my foot as soon as I sat down. Inferior meats that were cold. Supposedly appetizer type salad bar was dismal. Cheap fixings. You have to serve yourself salad. Then wait on line at the open kitchen for your meat. I could count the amount of meat on the grill. Little end of cheap meat. Dry ribs horrible bbq sauce. Dried sausage. Chic like the sole of your shoe. Non English speaking serving meat. So they didn’t understand what you want. You have to just point. Need I go on.

                                          Cold buffet = 2/5 Meat grill = 3/5 Music is good but way too loud. They played Latino music on the 80’s special night. Manager is nice but service is slow.

                                          My overall experience was not a pleasant one. The food they cooked on the grill was dry and tough. They allowed guests to reach over the food to point at what was on the grill. Even if you ate multiple plates full of food, you’re still not getting a good value. Our waiter seemed like he couldn’t get away fast enough after doing the intro. He even mentioned that Bayside location was the better one between the 2. The salad bar was dirty and unkept. The restaurant was quiet for the most part, with the exception of other guest just letting their kids run around inside. The best part of the whole evening and meal were the drinks and the slice of strawberry that came with the dessert we got.

                                          Unfortunately the quality of the food was just not there. I can’t knock the service because I know what it is to be short staff, but I did find it weird that the “managers/supervisors” did do table touches to other guest that had purchased wines and other alcohol, but not all of them. Definitely need to level up the food at this place. I ordered a filet and the waiter said 20 min cooked medium. I understood because of the restraints but after about 40 min and pretty much done I got the filet brought. One was cooked rare and the other well done. Overall not a great experience and to be honest in the back of my mind I get it. Things have changed, but if you can’t handle the volume better to be closed than opened.

                                          They cancelled my reservation. And did not even called me before. I went with all my family at the specified hour. They told me that the reservation does not exist. That they were closing their restaurant and that the problem was generated because I made the reservation with Open Table. It was an awful experience. The worst service I have ever seen.

                                          The absolute cheapest bottom of the barrel food that I've ever eaten! Worse than cruise ship food, Golden Coral, and the Chinese buffet put together. Invest in higher quality food!

                                          I like this place, good grilled food, reasonable price with a wine bottle included by person or other drink options, that's great and good friendly service. Definitely, I recommend it.

                                          They were only open for reservations but wouldn’t accept our open table reservations! We had to go somewhere else, last minute, on New Year’s Eve to eat dinner. So disappointing!

                                          I went to the Knife Restaurant in Hallandale with my family. I understand that Covid-19 has affected the services in many ways, but if you pay 34.99 per person, you are still expecting good food and service. They kept the meat rare, so you had to wait a long time to get the meat at the correct temperature. They only had two different types of cuts, and the meats had more fat than beef. They had ribs, but only two racks, so I didn't get to try much because it was raw, and whatever was cooked, they did not hold for much time. The service was excellent. I am not planning to return.

                                          This particular restaurant is following the CDC guidelines when talking about salad bar. Not self served is allow, which keeps things under control. Unfortunately is not the same case for the meat, one need to stand in line with the rest of people in the restaurant. While 6 feet apart stickers are in the floor, the facility floor plans makes difficult to respect this policy

                                          I made a reservation to celebrate my one year anniversary. When i got there they didn’t even ask for my name they were looking around where to sit me and my date. On top of that when i made a reservation i put i wanted a desert that said “happy 1 year anniversary” and i didn’t even get that. Bad service. Not coming again.

                                          Was making a reservation with a Groupon - through Groupon it shows to use a specific website for reservations; this website is non existent. I called the restaurant to figure out the next steps, after explaining the situation and what had transpired they directed me to OpenTable. When I arrived at the restaurant they have a sign at the sign in desk stating they are not accepting Groupons. They basically refused to do anything further about it and wanted to charge us full price for a Saturday night dinner. *We did not stay to eat but went somewhere else* Anyone that I had contact with had a language barrier and could hardly understand what I was explaining.

                                          Service was terribly slow as it seemed the staff was overwhelmed. The waitress seemed to ignore what we ordered and instead brought us “a little bit of everything to try”. Consequently most of the food sat on the table as majority of the selections were bland and inedible. Really the only thing we liked were the pickled eggplant, empanadas, and the beer.. but still not worth raving about or returning for. Unfortunately we left completely unsatisfied. Sadly, wouldn’t recommend.

                                          It was a disaster when we got to the restaurant, the assistant manager was not helpful at all, with my reservation, in firts place he sent us to a table on the corner, behind everything even was empty table with a better atmosphere. Finally he gave us another table but we were already upset wit this situation specially due to the ocassion dinner. The only 5 reviews I would give is to the nice lady that assisted our table. Unfortunately I don't remember her name. The food menu was poorly, not many options to choose wat to eat.

                                          Great Service and attention (under the present situation), worth the effort to open the restaurant and make the best of what's the regular menu options

                                          First night open. Order everything from your server for the time being. Great food as always. Good to be back in a restaurant and eat some great steaks.

                                          Overall our party of four had a wonderful experience. Our server, Sabrina, was attentive and helpful. There certainly is plenty of food. Our main gripe was the food in the back on the grill. It was abundant, but it was not hot. And it was even cooler by the time we brought it to the table. However, we all special ordered filet mignon and it was served straight from the kitchen, hot. We would return to this restaurant.

                                          This time the food at the salad bar was not as good as usual: soup was cold, some salad tray's were empty. Meet was good as always. Will be back
