The Knife Restaurant - Orlando Ratings and Reviews
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.
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 meat....it 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.
The food was fantastic. cooked perfectly. The price for all you can eat buffet was incredibly good. Complimentary bottle of wine and desert included. What more can i say!! Do not miss out on this restaurant!
The service was first class. Our waiter never missed a beat. Perfect
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.!!!!!
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.
We went to the Knife on a group on as a group of business ladies that wanted a "nice" dinner out. We were expecting a Brazilian restaurant atmosphere but received much less. The selection of meats was very limited only 2 types of steak, 2 types of chicken, 2 types of fish, etc...The salmon the best thing on the menu ran our extremely fast and we got there early. Instead of the traditional hot bar you have a choice of mash potatoes, fries, sweet potato fries which the server brings to the table cold.
The atmosphere is not what you expect for $35+ a person. I am a parent so I understand kids will be kids but there is a time and place for all types of behavior. We had kids from 2 tables away running up and down between the tables and the meat counter unsupervised, kids with balloon animals swinging in the air to the point one of our group was hit in the head several times, and then an older child who was purposefully knocking her chair over into our table every time she stood up: one time hitting a lady in our group, the other time knocking a glass of sangria over, a final time hitting the chair of another lady in our group. We politely said excuse the last time someone was physically touched to only have the mom respond threatening us verbally and physically. This wasn't the worst part....
The worst was the reverse racism. If we had been "latino" looking or Spanish speaking our service would have been much better, like all the other tables around us. However, being 3 white women we never saw our server after the drinks were first delivered....not even to bring us a bill that we had to ask the manager for
We had a wonderful time at the Knife. As a first time visitor, we didn't know exactly the procedure. We had to find someone to explain it to us and how and when to pay, etc. Once that was done, we got to enjoy their amazing food. The chicken was a little dry, but all of the steak options were amazing. Had plenty of flavor and was filling. The meat servers were a little rude, but that probably comes from everyone asking "What's that?" - as there are not signs on the meats to let people know.
All in all, probably one of the best meals I had in Orlando during my visit.
It was filthy
I went to the the one in Miami and I thought it was going to be the same way but what a disappointment,filthy place with flies and smells old cooking oil,the meat people didn't look like they know what they were doing.only the wine was good and the waitress also was good but I don't think I will be visiting that place again
The overall experience was good.
Our server was great, we were just disappointed in the food.
The filet was perfectly cooked, but it was so bland! No butter, salt, nothing.
The chicken and pork were seasoned nicely, but they were incredibly dry. (Go figure).
We had gotten a Groupon for this restaurant to try it out and I'm glad we didn't spend anymore then we had. It was a good first time but we won't be returning.
