Food was amazing. Only issue is that each time someone got up to get more food, there was never clean plates available which caused a huge line.
Food was great, but service was terrible. The server never checked back with us after dropping the food. We needed ketchup and refills and he didn’t bother to come back out. Probably the worst service ever received.
Very old place, do not updated, dirty walls, flies around, no too much variety, just few. I went Friday lunch, just one table busy. Service and all waiters wonderful.
I used to come for lunch regularly before COVID.
The plague forced many changes.
The quality of what is served is still outstanding, but the variety and cost have changed for obvious reasons.
I completely understand, and I am glad that the place is still open and i enjoyed my food immensely.
I hope that with the situation improving, they will resume the old formula and variety at the more affordable cost.
Kudos for the cleanliness and service.
The food was amazing but the place not very clean. There were fruit flies all over the restaurant including the bathroom. I am talking about ALOT of them - you couldn’t eat in peace. Staff is courteous but the service not too good. We had to ask for water four times.
The food however, delicious
It was a very great experience with a wonderful staff. The food was absolutely delicious. Would highly recommend.
Awesome place for carnivores!!! The ribs are a can't miss. Tender and juicy. Best thing I had there.
Food was very good at a reasonable price. Went there during a weekday menu was a little limited but would definitely go back to try full menu
The server asked if it was our first visit, which it was. She did not do the best job of explaining the concept. We were not offered any of the hot sides that were supposed to come with the dinner but saw other tables receive them. The menu also listed a soup of the day that also was not seen. The salad bar was limited obviously due to Covid but most of the items were not labeled so we weren’t sure what most of them even were. We were looking forward to dinner here all day, but sadly left disappointed.
This was the worst food for the most outrageous price I’ve ever encountered. You couldn’t eat the steak due to the fact that it was mostly gristle. Taste was terrible, cold bar items were very picked over and not replenished - besides being weird accompaniments for steak... wouldn’t feed this $100 meal to my dog.
I am a big fan of brazilian restaurants, and have been to several like Fogo De Chao and Texas De Brazil, but save your money on the Knife and go somewhere else. The menu is a joke! The salad bar has limited items. There was no soup of the day. Out of 6 side dishes, the only ones available were french fries. From the 6 hot appetizers only chorizo and grilled provolone were available. The grilled meat section advertizes 16 choices, but again only 3 choices were being offered, pork ribs, picanha and NY strip steak. The reason one goes to a brazilian restaurant is to experience the limitless grilled meats that get brought to your table and get carved. Due to covid they were only taking orders and bringing a plate of your choices directly to you on a plate. Well on top of the fact that the choices were extremely limited the portions were small. We were a party of 4 and ordered the only 2 choices of steak available. A small plate was brought to the table with 2 steaks for the 4 of us to share. Yes its supposed to be all you can eat and we could have ordered more but the waiter was extremely slow, the only side that we had was fries which got cold by the time they brought the steak. The waiter spoke in a very rapid spanish and when I asked him to repeat what was available he sighed and spoke even faster. I do not recommend the knife and will never visit them again.
This is a rip off !! Do not go there . The meat is very low quality , mostly fat , and is not Argentinian meat . There are no grilled vegetables as in the pics unless is the weekend . This is the worst meat ever tasted . I complained to the manger and he did not even offer a discount . We barely ate anything in the two hours we were there because the service was so poor !!
Desde que llegamos el trato del Hostess Érica fue deplorable a pesar de tener mesas disponibles su actitud fue “deben esperar 10 minutos de su reservación” la distribución de las mesas terrible todos juntos en COVID... nunca más.
There is no Covid safety being practiced here. Guests were walking around with no masks on. We saw 3 different parties go to the salad bar with no masks on and eating at the salad bar. When I brought it to the managers attention he did nothing about it. Staff members were also not wearing masks. Our server was nice but overwhelmed. They only had 2 servers on and the place was busy. The food was sub par at best. It lacked flavor. The restaurant is run down and dirty. The men’s restroom was horrible. Toilet seats broken off and laying in the floor. I was embarrassed for the restaurant. And the manager didn’t seem to care. They need to close.
Server was attentive, food was great! Flan was delicious 😋
There were black fruit flies everywhere. They were landing on food in the salad bar. They were on my wine glass and one landed on my plate. The waitress laughed when I complained about the bugs. Food was fair. Meat was very fatty. We had to ask to talk to a manager and after showing him the video I took of the bugs he took 50% off our bill. I didn’t eat anything so it was still fair,
The waiter was very dry and unmotivated! There were two kids running and a screaming all over the restaurant for more than an hour kicking the salad bar, tripping people trying to get food and screaming all over the place! I asked 2 workers for a manager and the manager never came! We were not the only family complaining about that! The meat was all fat and the line was out of this world, by the time we got everything we waited for and made it to our table, our meat was cold! So we never got to eat but bits here and there! It’s was an awful experience and we will never go back! Everyone’s Birthday celebration had a whole group singing, since ours was at the end of the night and they wanted us to leave only 3 people came to sing to my son! We never got up to get more meat, it just was not worth the wait in line! We have always wanted to visit the knife restaurant but we will never go back! Terrible experience! I had a headache by the time I left, with all the screaming from the kids running around our table and area! My son wasn’t able to eat his food either, he had two small pieces of meat that we asked the waiter if he can take home and he said no, I couldn’t believe that! They would rather throw it away then let you take 2 small pieces of meat home! Never again will we go there! We had to order room service to eat a full meal when we got to the hotel and paid less than our bill there with tip and all! Maybe we went on the wrong night, but our experience and my sons birthday were awful. We celebrated it the next day at another restaurant that was quiet, no kids running around and they gave us the service we actually deserved and they celebrated my son the way he deserved to be celebrated!
The food was delicious! Great value for the price paid! Will definitely return!
Cuando me llego la cuenta me cobraron un niño de 2 años. El cual no sabia q lo iban a cobrar y de paso no me tomaron nunca la orden de el, ni le ofecieron nada.
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.
Muy buena nos atendió una mesera sumamente amable y el manager nos atendió con mucha educación y tratando de que nuestra experiencia fuera mejor cada momento, La comida exquisita en su totalidad excelente en todos los aspectos Felicidades!!!!
Great food and service! Love the roasted veggies!
When we got there and he had to wait a bit to be seated, then to have our waitress take our order but overall is wasn’t too bad
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.
Staff was friendly and meats were great!! Can’t beat for the price
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.
Absolutely delicious. Great experience. Steak cooked to perfection. Will be going back soon.
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.
Expected alittle more on the quality
overall good experience
Nice experience. They have adapted very nicely to the current regulations. An overall very pleasant dining visit.
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.
Really great place. I am just sorry I got there during covid and I was not really able to experience the buffet experience, but it was still really good.
The service and food it’s great I really recommended Also this’s not my first time it’s great.
Muy bueno el trato muy bueno el ambiente
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.
Too expensive to eat cold meat and really poor salad at bar and appetizers really bad food it used to be good before but no more
No me dieron el vino que me cobran por persona deberían de explicar antes de servir
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.
