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.

Super expensive and it was a birthday celebration but no discount and charged 11 year old as an adult. Tried ordering filets several times and waitress kept forgetting so dinner took forever. For the money, not worth it.

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.

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.

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
