All the meats were delicious, good salad bar, they'll bring you fries or mashed potatoes if you like, the wine and sodas and dessert is included. Very good price - value.

Big fan of The Knife and have some locations that are closer to me, but we always make the 45 minute drive to the one in Hallandale. Staff is great and the food is always amazing.

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.

Service was quick, efficient and helpful. Food was very good. Steaks were cooked to order and tender. Creamed pumpkin soup was unexpectedly delicious. Good options on the salad bar.

The Knife was OK but not fantastic. The meat selection was limited and compared to any Brazilian steakhouse, not what I expected. The meat quality was fair. Items on the grill were sitting for a long time. The buffet was not well stocked and lacked variety.

A bit pricey even with Groupon, I paid almost $200 . Food was ok. Needs better air filtration to remove smoke coming from grills.

From start to finish this was the worst experience I have ever had!!! The waitress was horrible we explained it was our fist time and at no point did she explain the format of the restaurant, she said ok get up and go get your food this is a buffet. The men cooking the meat or better said reheating the leather had no clue what kind of meat they were serving when asked they said the best meat in the world avoiding the actual question, which could not have been further from the truth. Ordered a drink which was $16 and had to send it back as it tasted like a sour gone bad orange juice with no alcohol then when brought back the drink was super strong and tasted like $5 a bottle vodka disgusting! The food was horrible chicken was dry and burnt the meat was fatty and hard to chew. Everything was overpriced and the service was garbage it was our anniversary and they ruined it . After we left and commented to
Others who have gone to the knife they asked us how was the steak u ordered a la carte at no time we’re we told that we had a steak included cooked to order and never received it. The waitress also looked drunk and was confused on what chEck she was bringing us. TERRIBLE DO NOT GO SAVE YOURSELF THE TRIP!

The experience was good and our server was amazing.
We would prefer if we could take our bottle of wine to enjoy at home. If it is included in our cover price we should be able to take it home. It does not seem fair to have to drink it at the restaurant, specially when you have to drive later. it's not safe

Terrible service. The waitress didn't even explain the format or what we get included with our meals. She was very good at explaining that the tip was not included on the bill though...

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.

La comida por el horario ) ultima hoar de la noche) era recalentada y nos hizo mal. tuvimos descompostura por la madrugada. Creo que el carbonidrato que despide el recalentar comida hizo que nos descompusieramos

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.

First table we went to sit at had ants all over it. The outer addition on the building where we sat smelt funny as well. The service wasn't the best but the meat was good. They could really use a make over on the place and clean it up a bit

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.
