Absolutely filthy restrooms made us lose our appetites

The salad bar was good and had some nice selections. The grill was extensive, and fun to watch, but the meats and veggies were not tender or particularly tasty - just plentiful. Even with the groupon, our bill came out to about USD 40 per person, including fo the 7 year-old who picked at some chicken. We could have gotten a far more enjoyable meal for far less somewhere else. Will not be returning.

Terrible food, dont waist your time and money. The grill took for ever and over cook every piece of steak that they gave me. The server tried to over charge us for kids cups. The only good thing was the manager

This wasn't my first time eating here. But it was my first time eating here while on a restrictive diet.
I was skeptical but hopeful that I would be able to have a decent dinner with some options from the salad bar as well as the meat. And I was delightfully surprised when the manager CONFIRMED THAT THE MEATS WERE DAIRY FREE, AND ONLY USED SALT TO SEASON THEM.
That was a win in my book. As for the salad bar, the ingredients where marked on little cards, so it was easy to pick and choose what worked. And if the item looked suspicious, I could easily ask our waiter and he was knowledgeable enough to tell me what was safe and what wasn't.
Only regret I had was not being able to have some wine or desert.
I would recommend to them to add a bowl of fruit to their desert options.

Service was good. Salad bar was okay. Meat was not good at all - Low quality of meat and only two types of beef being served - flank steak and something else that I didn’t even care for. We went on late Sunday night and it was not busy. We had to go to the grill to get the meat and the meat looked like they had been sitting on the grill all night and they reheated them for us as we ordered. Drinks were included in the meal. We got a bottle of red wine, but we only drank half a glass, because it didn’t taste good. Sadly but true, the best part of the meal was desert which was included too. I have no plan to go back again!

Although the food was decent, this restaurant is not for a quiet dinner. It is not a full service restaurant, It is more of a cafeteria style place. The salad bar was only OK. The wait staff was friendly and competent. I would recommend this restaurant for families with hungry children. Or someone looking to eat rather than dine.

I read several reviews for this restaurant and the positives were very good and the negatives were very bad so i figured the truth was somewhere in between and decided to take a shot. I dont know what the people's expectations were who wrote positive reviews but they must not have been very high. From the moment we were seated things started to go wrong. Our waitress was not attentive at all and took forever to bring us items that we requested such as water. I proceeded to the grill for food and there was no one in line and yet i still had to wait until someone noticed i was standing there. In fact i had to ask one of the cooks to get his attention. they were not friendly at all. Seemed like i was bothering them. When i asked for the corn that was on the grill it was placed on my plate and i noticed it was cold. I asked for another piece but instead he took it and put it back on the grill. I then went to get my meat and as i waited and waited, i had to once again ask for the corn that had now been on the grill several minutes. The meat was ok, but not what i expected. In fact it was somewhat dry and overcooked. Other meats were undercooked to the point whee it was raw inside. The manager did come by and asked if everything was good and when i said no not really, he said good, good, and kept walking. When i asked for the check, it never came and i had to go retrieve it myself. I had asked to speak with the manager again, and after he never showed up, we decided to just leave. We will not visit the knife again, and will not recommend to anyone.

Arrived early and it wasn't a problem. The server was warm and friendly and provided us with excellent service. The team at the meat bar were very friendly and willing to cook any item to your specifications, they were great at making suggestions as well. The salad bars were well stocked and clean. I've been there before but this was my wife's first time and she loved it.

At first the girl at the desk didn’t check me in, I had to go to back and check in with a different person, and the rest of my party didn’t get to check in either. Our server was really great and she made sure we had a good time.. the experience was really great, the food was excellent.. will do it again.

I’ve been before and food was not as good this visit. Some was over cooked and other (ribs) too tough to chew.

It is not really worth more than the Groupon price to be honest.

Went in expecting much more.... the sides and salad bar had minimal options and the options that were there were not good. You have to wait in line for your would be better for servers to come around to the tables with the meat options instead to provide better service. The “complimentary” bottles of wine are appreciated.

Our experience was very bad. After traveling for two hours to celebrate a special occasion the food was of poor quality. Very expensive for the quality of the food and the attention of the person who cooked the meat.

The salad bar was decent. The meats/selection & appearance was very disappointing. Desserts were very plain and unappetizing. Very over priced restaurant....not worth it at all.

The salad and veggie bar was fresh with a large selection. They had various meat selections however the steak was the best. We felt the chicken and salmon was dry or a little over cooked. The sausage was also good. Great value for what you get. Also they offer various drink specials.

I was looking forward to dinner at the knife, but to my dismay it was a horrible choice for our group. The food was disgusting to say the least. The meat was tough and not at all edible. The salad bar was chock full of flavorless sides. I tried the quinoa and it was terrible. And even the dessert was bad! The cheese cake was dry like it was left out uncovered in the refrigerator and had a weird taste. The amount of money I spent I could have gone to a much better restaurant. The manager didn't even seem to care about our concerns. A complete waste of money.

Estuvimos en dos ocasiones esta misma semana con mi hijo en oportunidad de nuestros cumpleaños que fueron el 16 y 18 de noviembre. Excelente la atención, la variedad de ensaladas, entradas ,cortes de carne, buen vino, al mejor estilo de una parrilla argentina pero en Orlando, realmente nos sentimos "como en casa". Sigan así. Ah me olvidaba, el precio muy accesible ya que se trata de un "tenedor libre" como solemos decir. Exitos.!!!!!

Food quality was terrible. Not comparable to a Texas de Brazil or Fogo de Chao. The cost of this place was $30 a person, not worth it. This was like a Golden Corral.

This Orlando restaurant is very bad. I've eaten many times at a their Miami location, which is excellent. Their Orlando restaurant can be described in one word "awful". An awful selection of poor quality meat, that was too tough to chew. Perhaps they use this tourist area restaurant to sell off meat they wouldn't dare serve in Miami.
