What a fantastic place for a big dinner! So much variety of meat,chicken,vegetables, chorizo,side dishes,etc. Plus you get a full bottle of wine per person and your own dessert. It was amazing and the service was great and the food was fresh! I read reviews that weren’t so great but I am here to tell you that I will definitely be going back to this place! It was delicious and worth it!

food was nasty ans flavorless, cooks dont explain meats, Roberto, my server was a dick,i had a trail of ants on the wall, next to my seat, there was a bucket on the floor catching water coming from the ceiling. i would assume for the price that people pay, it should be allot better. buffet was disgusting also. everything smothered in mayo. i apologized to my cousin for bringing him to such a nasty place.

Horrible place to eat. The salad bar was disgusting. Potatoe salad full of sugar. Inedible bread.
Don't let me get started about the meat.... Raw chicken, the steak smells strange...

Save money! Don't waste one dollar on this place.
I only feel sorry for the personnel who was absolutely adorable.

If all you want is eat a lot, and are not too picky or into gourmet food then you are in the right place. But do not ask for quality. Entrana wasn't too bad. But the so called "fillet mignon" was a joke. I found much superior fillet mignon at walmart. Desert: stick to the basics. The sabayon ice cream was just powdered egg mixed w vanilla ice cream. Disgusting.
Our waitress was very kind and attentive. Ample space between tables.

The food is prepared before hand and slightly warmed at your requests, it is hard to get a perfectly prepared piece of beef because of this. The salad bar is a bit shy. The service is distant and random. Not impressed in this place at all.

The restaurant is ok but if your a member of open table and you do inform them chances are they will mark u down as a no show which has happened to me every single time I even talked to the manager to make sure he does check me in he said he did but couple days later I get email about again another no show not surprising...im sick and tired of waiting my time going there again not worth my time.

I have been to many of the Knife's locations many times before and this was the first visit at the Hallandale location in which I was extremely disappointed. I made a reservation through OpenTable, which is highly recommended because the restaurant gets extremely busy at times and the wait is very long without a reservation. When we arrived, we were seated almost immediately by a very pleasant hostess. However, our table was situated right by the hostess's desk and next to a bucket filling with water due to a leak from the ceiling. The staff continued to walk other customers through that area, which was already very tight space, through to their seating areas and the chair I was sitting in was often bumped as the customers and staff tried to maneuver around the water leak and the bucket trying to contain the water. Our table was also in an area where bus boys would drop off dirty dishes. I did not ask to move because there appeared to be no other tables that could accommodate my group. Overall, the meal was good, but the meat was undercooked most of the time, a few times it was actually RAW, but we were allowed to have it put back on the grill to complete the cooking process a little bit more. The service was satisfactory, but I think the waitress had a large area to cover, or maybe it was the water leak that caused her to take a little longer to come to our table. But she was pleasant and explained the meal/ambiance to the new attendees in my group. When we finished and went outside, we were overpowered by a horrible stench coming from the trash dumpsters situated close to the front door. These dumpsters appear to belong to the daycare center directly next to the restaurant and the malodorous reeking emitting from them left a bad impression on the first-time diners in our group. I would generally recommend the restaurant. I guess my last visit was not a good one.

I was really having high hopes for this restaurant and I took my wife and 2 kids on a special lunch on the weekend. Unfortunately our experience was very bad. To start, the salad bar smelled so bad and there were flies everywhere. In fact, I removed a fly that was stuck in the salad with my fingers. The meat variety wasn't good at all. The steak was all fat and didn't taste good. The only good thing there was the chicken with cheese. Even though the service was ok and waiters were friendly, I would never go there again and I wouldn't recommend any of my friends to go there.

I enjoy the Knife for the meat and the value. Great deserts and more wine than you can (should) drink. I´ve gone to the ones in Miami and I was disappointed with the filet Mignon which is served at the table. Miami´s are much better. I also thought the salad bar did not have enough choices. Nevertheless I enjoyed their ceviche.

Maybe my expectations were too high, I've heard a lot of good things about the Knife and it fell little short. I had family in from out of town and wanted to take them to a nice place but, it seemed a little average. Both the chicken and the fish were Wayover cooked and dried out. For being a buffet the options were minimal. Overall it was OK and everyone was satisfied, it was nice having the bottle of wine and or beer included with your meal. The atmosphere was nice everything was clean the service was OK. We did notice our waitress was a little more friendly when we started speaking Spanish to her.
I don't think I would be returning to this particular location however, overall it was pretty good for just a regular evening dinner not so much for a special occasion.

Absolutely horrible the food was horrible, I honestly have never had food so bad. All the meat is sitting on the grill the whole time we were there. The red velvet cake tasted as if it was made last month and put in the freezer, the frosting was cardboard. Cake should be moist, I couldn't even score the top with my fork.
It's like the raccoon that tastes something bad out of the trash can try it you got to taste it just try it. IT'S BAD

I carried my wife here for a Valentines dinner and was very disappointed. The cold salad bar was disgusting and had fruit flies hovering and in the food. The corn tasted spoilt and nothing looked like it was fresh. We ordered a sangria and it tasted like it had been sitting for hours. The only good thing was the food from the grill was good but not for the price we paid. The managers walked around all night asking patrons if they were ok but they didn't seem to genuinely care. The servers also just seemed to be going through the motions and were counting down the minutes to go home. The crowd was very light and seemed like a lot of regulars and a few tourist. I would have rather spent the same amount of money and driven a few blocks down the street for better food, service and cleanliness.
