Salad bar was incredible however they do not come to your table with the meats like similar restaurants. The other thing is that when get up to the meat serving area you do not really know what is available there are no signs. Honestly wasn't bad to try and the server was really good.

We went to the Knife as a recommendation from a friend. We went on a Friday night, around 8:30pm. It was a bit crowded and too noisy for my taste. The food was amazing, but the service was very poor. The waitress had around 6 tables of at least 6 people each, and didn't have enough time to take care of all. She came to the table about 5 times total the entire 2 hours we were there. I understand it's an all you can eat buffet and technically we were serving ourselves, but the drinks and sides took forever to make it to the table. Overall, it's a good place to go if you have in mind that some things will take forever, plus you have to go with a very empty stomach as there's a lot of variety in food.

Food was good, but not great. The grill seemed like it could get crowded quickly. The overall atmosphere of the restaurant was very lacking. Service was decent enough.

It was good to visit once, but I won't go back.

Went at 5:00pm on a Wednesday and it was slow. The meat was dry and only 1 cut was medium rare. All the other cuts were well done, tough, and dry. The fried cheese was good though.

The server was attentive and asked for drink and side orders, but did not explain the salad bar or grill. Sides came out immediately with drinks, but were completely cold by the time we figured out that we had to go to the grill to get our meats. The meats were excessively fatty and grisly. Vegetables from the grill were ice cold and not even heated, some put on our plate even had mold on the skins. Salad bar had many unusual premade items, of which many did not look fresh. The restaurant was not very clean. We will not return or recommend.

Most of the meats I tried were over cooked. The steak was very fatty. It was not what we had expected. We ate the Miami location at the end of last year and we were very pleased, so we had high hopes for this location. The servers did a great job, the restaurant was very clean, and the side bar food was very good. The meats were not.

The buffet had lots of unique choices for salads and appetizers. The bottle of wine or beer being included in the reasonable price was a plus. The waiter was incredibly attentive for a buffet restaurant. The meat choices were plentiful. The only negative was the noise level. It’s one of those loud clattering types of places where conversation is difficult.

Service was horrible, unlimited sides but our server was never around to bring us more. Also, the sides aren’t out with the rest of the food so by the time you either get your meat or your sides one of the two is cold. Meat was the only decent thing.

This was our first time and I will say I was a bit surprised by how many bad reviews I saw. The only problem I have is I wish it was closer to me. The food was outstanding, the waiter was very attentive to our needs and questions. If I could give a ten star rating I would. This is a hidden gem close to Disney, I will definitely come back. The package deal is the greatest, any carnivore worth his/her salt will love this place.

Extremely underwhelming. Barely greeted by the server from the start. He was training another server and paid more attention to that. Salad bar is weak and stale. The bartender had no knowledge of any drinks (simple martini and a negroni) and the glasses were dirty. The meat was ok. Some pieces better than others. The chefs behind the grille were more friendly and knowledgeable. The fish option took 30 minutes and still came out frozen in the middle. Not cool. Decent prices I guess but not even worth the trip. There are so many other food options around, even in the same shopping center.

Did not enjoy this place once but! Our waitress barely came to the table. The sides come in a very small dish. I get more French fries in a McDonalds happy meal than i did there. I mean yeah the sides are endless but they come in better tiny portions, and my fries had no seasoning. The meat was ok but I've had much better. Definitely would not recommend this place. Please don't waste your money!

I thought the food was just OK. A lot of variety but somethings were very so so. An example was the port ribs, I thought they were tasteless and very tough. The grilled quarter chicken was very flavorful and was not too dry. My wife liked the salmon. I thought the steak was just OK with not much flavor and not as tender as I would have liked.
The waitress was slow in bringing us things we needed during the meal took me at least 20 for her to bring drink refills to the table. When it was time to bring the check it took her at least 30 minutes to do that. What should have been an hour to an hour 15 to complete dinner took 2 hours.
I thought that the buffet should have the side items on it and a larger variety of side items to choose from. The salad bar was very good.

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.

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.
