We had the worst first experience, we let the waitress know that it was our first time and she was still not hopeful at all. Will not be returning.

All meats were overcooked...….the waitress did not offer us Filet Mignon at the beginning ?? WE found out at the end of the meal. 32.95 per person ( even though 1 bottle of very CHEAP WINE is included )…..is a STEAL.………… Never will we go back......NEVER will we recommend to our friends. I am not very happy...It was my Wife's anniversary...can you imagine:::::: shame on you.

For the value, I would not recommend this returaunt. We were seated in hard wooden benches in the corner of the resturaunt. Upon arriving at our table we were met with our dishes and silverware covered in water spots. You get one piece of bread with butter (In the wrapper).

So my girlfriend and I go to see what for food is offered at the grill/salad bar and I was not impressed. The salad bar was very low in options and all of the pasta salad and meats were very oily. The grill had some pretty decent variety however almost every thing was dry. The ribs literally would not even come off the bone and they don’t offer any sauces and you are stuck asking the bar for A-1 sauce.

After eating our dinner we got dessert menus and the dessert was actually quite nice. Not too much and not too little just right. We had the lava cake and the chocolate mousse and honestly it was probably the best part of the night.

The bottom line is they charge a pretty penny and don’t offer the quality that you would expect when paying those prices. All and all I would not recommend this establishment for a nice dinner out.

Nice customer service. Food not so great. You have to be in a line to get some meat. You will wait and get cold and overcooked meat. Salad bar poor.
To expensive for what you get. Very friendly service but not enough reason to go there.

The waitress since the beginning was rough and forgetful.
Since we told her we had a groupon she was like it was free food and did not bring the drinks accordingly as we ordered and fail to do refill of them. I went with family that came from Spain and they are very uptight with service. I had paid for the Groupon but we were 6 therefore they paid for the other 2 regular meals. When the waitress asked my cousin for the tip, she said I don’t wanna leave anything. I felt a bit uncomfortable, however since the beginning she treated us like we were eating as a charity and that was not right. If you have an opportunity to tell, let her know that she works for tips. Don’t underestimate anyone because I am a very good tipper and If she deserved it I would have given her not $32 but $50 tip.

The line for the steak is way too long and you come out smelling like bbq. The restaurant was not very nice- the location looks deserted and when you walk in it has an old feel to it. Food was food but it just wasn’t a nice place.

The steak and salad bar were awful. The steak was greasy and did not have a good taste. The Molleja was reheated from the previous day. The salad bar was not good quality and the things did not taste fresh. The restaurant is nice inside, but the servers were uncaring and the people who serve you the unlimited meat act as though they are doing you a favor to cook it your way. Avoid this place at all costs. It is a disaster like Argentina. Es U.N. disastre como Argentina.

I can’t believe how cold and hard the food was... maybe because I came an hour before closing but the food should have still been fresh and not hard and cold... I brought it off Groupon so I couldn’t get my money back... maybe the are good but that day was bad for me!!!

The restaurant was fine. When we arrived we had our choice of tables and the hostess was very nice.
The waitress was pleasant and efficient.
I don't understand why I received an email stating that this reservation is not eligible for points. Since you know we dined there and are asking how we liked it, then you know we should received the points we are entitled to.
Please respond and explain. Also, make sure that I receive the points I am entitled to and perhaps some extra points for this inconvenience.

Thank you,
Marcia Pittell

Me and my family went to celebrate my dads birthday and felt very dissapointed. Quality was not good, not enough variaty, only one person at the grill working for a Friday night?
The waitress was excellent, she give us a great service but very disapointed with the price.
The worst part was the manager on duty, when i express him about our expirience he did not act like a manager concern about their customer.
They comp 1 dish.
Never visit this place again.

The Knife is intended to be an Argentinian Churascharia Grill. The Groupon coupon made the value of the meal a little more reasonable, but with a Groupon they won't give you any beverage (extra cost for even soda's or tea) and dessert. The meats are not brought to your table like a typical all you can eat grill. You walk up to the kitchen window and point out what you want, where the chef throws it on the grill and overcooks all the meat. So if you like medium to rare meats, it is going to be difficult to accomplish. The salad bar was pretty limiting, with iceberg cheap lettuce. The side dishes were morros (rice and beans) which were cold and almost empty , and some kind of stew. The meats were tough and chewy, though very tasty. Overall it was a mediocre experience. Service was excellent and the ambience is lovely.

We wanted to find an authentic Argentinian restaurant for some churrascaria. We found a groupon coupon to make the meal more affordable. Unlike most other churascaria's where servers come to your table and slice the meats for you, you have to walk up to a kitchen window and point out what you want. Then the chef has to throw your meat or chicken on the grill to warm it up, and overcook it, if you like rare. The salad bar was weak and not many choices. The side dishes were cold and not refilled. Overall it was a very mediocre experience. And, with a Groupon coupon, you don't get the advertised dessert, or soft drink, so those are extra.

Solo un detalle que llamó la atención en el inicio. Una de las personas que atendía la parrilla estaba malhumorada. Supongo que dada la hora estaba cansado de “bancar” comensales. Si su fastidio era con alguien en particular no debió atender de mal modo al resto de los comensales que esperaban por su comida. Suele pasar pero no es lo típico de este lugar. El resto todo ok como siempre. Volveremos pronto por la revancha. Gracias por sus atenciones y por mantener vigente esta “parrillada”

This place is supposed to be known for the quality of his food particularly beef. Well, the quality of the meat cuts and cook was not as it used to be - unfortunately.

Servers and people make the stay really pleasurable. They do their best to provide excellent service. Overall OK.

Don’t waste your money. The buffet salads was not fresh. Not all of them but few ones. The rice was dry... The quality of the meat was very poor and dry... the vegetables over cook. the sangria had no flavor. She tasted nothing. But the desserts was good (cheesecake and melted chocolate cake)
If you want quality and fresh food don’t go there.
