Todo malo, la comida parecía sobras, recalentada, escasa. No tienen anchuras, las guarnición súper escasa. El vino del menú feo. No volvería nunca ni lo recomendaría. Por ese dinero comen de diez en otros lugares. Lo único que rescato es el panqueque con dulce de leche del postre.

Visited to use a voucher before it expired. They have had to modify the way they serve food due to the pandemic and for the most part everything was very good. Service was slow and the atmosphere feels more cafeteria like.

We used a Groupon coupon and was completely satisfied with both the service and the meal! Oscar took great care of us and let us set the pace for the meal instead of feeling rushed. The salad was tasty, the steaks were tender & juicy and the mashed potatoes were delicious!

Miserable experience! I don't know how the Orlando authorities keep a place like this opened? It's not true that you can eat all that you can. Food was scarcity and undercooked. This place was unclean, without proper manteniment, bathrooms the same problem. I don't recommend this restaurant for you. Do your research before go there and you will see that I'm not the only one said the same.

Our server was wonderful! The selections were very limited. There were guests walking past our table and around the restaurant with no masks on. They even waited in line for their steaks with no mask on. I was very disappointed by this and did not feel safe.

We loved the experience! The price is okay. We expected a little more from the quality of the food. The fries/ some meats were alittle coldish. You $35 per person on the weekend, and get u limited food, one bottle of wine (cheap wine) and dessert.
Desserts delicious
Expected alittle more on the quality
overall good experience

The food was overcooked and blahhh. The server didn't speak English so communication was bad.

We paid our $70, tipped him still and left. Went somewhere else and ate.

Salad bar was a bit more limited due to COVID, however we did enjoy the server bringing us meat from the grill That is a great improvement over the normal line for these items.

Very good food. We like this place.

This place used to be good. I don't understand their concept of having one waiter bring out the meats. Oh and only give the crap cut options of meats. They should allow us to go up to the grill with a mask and pick our own cuts of meats. I felt bad for the one waiter that was taking care of 5 tables by himself. The food was cold because of it or over cooked. Needs a new system quickly before they loose more customers.

Everything was very good. the food was extremely good, the price was very good.
very quiet...Very good value overall.
The only thing that i would wish for is that i could repeat dessert (you can only have one), just because is "all care to eat" restaurant ( and because the desserts are really really good!!), but on the other side, having the choice of a bottle of wine among the beverages is unbeatable.
I recomend it...thumbs up

Siempre fuimos clientes de The Knife pero esta vez no nos gustó el servicio que se nos ofreció. Al principio nadie nos dijo que nos servían en las mesas entonces nosotros los levantamos, después nos dijeron que llevemos los platos y la chica nos dice que no necesitábamos los platos y esa chica que estaba sirviendo las ensaladas ese día no fue para nada simpática o amable y creo que uno está pagando no solo por el plato de comida sino para que lo atiendan bien y alegre. Se tardaron en hacernos el pedido de la carne, traían porciones muy pequeñas como por ej del puré que era una cucharada grande nomas, los refresco no se nos servia constante como muchos lugares que observan y traen refill sin preguntar. Siempre recomendé The Knife pero en la última visita no nos gustó mucho.

Magdalena was our server and she was extremely exceptional! Her service was one of a kind. She was patient and extremely knowledgeable about the food and Covid regulations. She was absolutely awesome! She made our entire experience worth it. Rafael the manager is whom we encountered at the entrance and if I were his boss I would have terminated him. He barely greeted us. He was playing the host. He was on his phone texting while walking. He didn’t even notice that he had left us at the door. Until he was halfway and literally waved for us to come. Throughout the night we noticed him prance around the restaurant on his phone with his mask on his chin and not covering his face. I think the food was ok. It wasn’t what I had expected to be honest. The chef and the other server had more manners than the manager. They at least waived as they passed by or even asked if we needed something.

There were flies and gnats everywhere. At the salad bar, our table, just everywhere.

The chefs did not properly cook our meat to medium. Most, if not all was well done.

The chefs did not properly send our orders. The meat is ordered and then they cook it. However, they did not cook the meat when we ordered it. They stated it was a mistake in the kitchen. We became tired of having to wait very long times for meat.

We ordered chicken that never came. Same excuse. It was ordered by not cooked.

We had always had a good experience at this place, but this turn it felt like ownership is Just not committed to it anymore. The servers tried and were friendly but struggled with the Covid protocols, the wine list pricing was incorrect or missing items and no one advised us, the worst was te quality of the meat and the buffet.
Overall, disappointing and hope they decide to turn it around or risk going into oblivion.

The waitress was nice, but she took forever to bring the juices, the food, and the desert; however, the food was amazing. They have to clean the food bar area. Overall, I would recommend this place.

Our server was extremely friendly and attentive but the pre-pandemic vibe is no longer there. (Understandably) the AYCE concept can sometimes feel like you are annoying the servers as you request more of anything. But they are doing a great job considering the current climate. Thank you all for a great birthday dinner.

The hostess was very rude. We almost left because of her. However we stayed. The experience is different because you cannot get your own food like you could in the past. The waiter was excellent. He made up for the hostess.

The whole point to go and pick your cut of meats, pick your own salads... currently, the waiter wears a mask (very hard to hear) points to a paper menu, reduced meat selection, salad was romain lettuce and some kind of peppered cheese. asked for a filet, received some cut of meat that had a weird twinge of metal flavor, up charged 6.00 for the request for filet. overall, the meats were sub par, cooked ok. overall, for 50 bucks a head, i would really go someplace else.

Waiting for meat can take a while, especially if it all goes to the people ahead of you in the line. Will not recommend, will not go back.

Groupon was a good value for two people. server forgot our order multiple times but was really nice. meat and grill is okay but need some sauces because its all pretty dry and grill master didn't explain anything and seemed liked he wanted to go home. 3/5 overall only because of the Groupon i felt like was a decent value given the location of the restaurant.
