Service was great, but the food selection on the buffet was very limited. Grilled items were great, but would like to see more variety and options on the buffet line such as sides and appetizers.

The restaurant the food the service was fantastic however the bathrooms were disgusting out of the four stalls in the women’s bathroom two were clogged the floors were dirty I actually chose to wait to go to the movie theater to go to the bathroom and unfortunately a dirty bathroom does indicate a dirty restaurant I will not be returning to the knife I will not recommend it to anybody the one in Orlando much better

The waiter seemed put off since I had a Groupon. The Sangria was watered down. There was no explanation as to which kind of cuts the meat were and the staff at the grill only spoke in Spanish and didn’t understand the difference between well done and every other level of cooked meets. The salmon was the only thing I had cooked properly. HUGE disappointment. Glad I didn’t pay full price.

 (Las Vegas)·Dined on October 7, 2017

First the good. The staff was very friendly and pleasant to deal with. How ever the rest of the evening was less than memorable. Upon arrival, they did not have our reservations (they attributed that to Open Table), but since it was not busy, it was not an issue and we were seated promptly (at a table next to a bucket collecting water from a roof leak). The open floor and table layout made it look more like a cafeteria. The salad bar offered very little and there was one soup offering. The meats were cooked well and taste was good, but the offering was limited. Chicken (roasted). Beef (one type/cut). Pork (ribs or loin). The vegetables were grilled (onions, peppers and then a mix or corn, squash, zucchini). Almost all seemed to have some cheese melted on them. Desert offerings were a bit more abundant, but all focused on high sugar content Latin style deserts (something I'm not big on personally). The restaurant has no control over guest attire, but you would think that with the prices people would not be wearing shorts and sandals. But then it is South Florida and 'proper' dress code here seems to have a different definition than in other places.
Overall, we were not impressed and will probably not return.

There were only two waiters working the entire floor. My boyfriend tried the chicken which was too dry to eat. He also tried the steak which was too tough to even cut. I tried the roasted veggies which seemed like they had been sitting there all day. Our sides (white rice & fries) never came - granted we were probably there all of 20 minutes when we decided to check out and eat dinner somewhere else. More than 10 tables hadn’t even been cleaned off from prior parties because they were short staffed and the waiters were running around doing all of the work (waiting on tables AND bussing tables). The entire place just seemed like they were barely keeping their head above water. Sad to see, but they need help badly. Manager was nice enough not to make us pay, since we didn’t eat.

Iwas there with my wife for our 41st anniversary.
It was our first time there.
We had a great and memorable time!
Our server (Christopher), was amazing!
He went beyond what he probably is responsible for. He could not have done anything more to make us feel welcomed and happy.
Thank you Christopher! You deserve a raise..lol!

Food has no flavor. The meat didn't have any salt to lock in juiciness and flavor. Low quality cuts of meat. Waited over 10 minutes for someone to come start us off and explain the menu. You had no idea which neat was what. You could smell the sewage water from the bathroom in the dinning room. I see why they add so many "free or included" items to compete with other similar places. I would put a KFC buffet above this place.

Used to go to the Knife often a couple of years ago. Passed by the other day and suggested another couple and us go there for dinner. The steak was great. I remember having a lot more meat choices though. The ribs were dried out. The waitress forgot that we wanted mashed potatoes with the meal and then when I asked for my beer she completely forgot that as well. When I reminded her about the beer I ended up canceling it anyway because we were already done with the meal. Overall it was okay but not the enjoyable meal I remember previously.

Ambiance left a lot to be desired. Restrooms were dirty and out of supplies in some stalls. Meat appeared to have been sitting on the grill all day. Ran out of tilapia (with no offer to make more) and when I mentioned that there were two containers of bleu cheese dressing and no ranch, they just took down the sign over the one container and didn't even offer to bring out the ranch I requested. Lacking attention to detail, especially with several employees not doing anything our entire visit. Will not be returning...

The preparation of the meats were tasty but the meats were so thinly sliced. If we asked for it well done it was no longer juicy meat way too thin. The place was clean and everyone there was very nice. The only thing we had a problem was it was our first time there. We didn't know how the place worked. We had to ask a girl cleaning the table how does it work here. Do we go to the buffet or wait for a waiter. It was a bit disorganized and we had to wait awhile e to figure out what was going on. The menu on the website did not reflect what we had. The appetizers where not offered. We do not drink so we asked not to have the wine nor the beer. One the website it said you can replace the wine and beer for dessert. That did not occur either. There were not a lot of people when we went. I really would not care to return when I go out I like to know what I get in advance. I also did not like how the fish and meats were cooked in the same area. I am allergic to fish so I only ordered what was far from the fish.

Asked to sit in private area but placed in the middle of everyone. Most food items cold ... meat not served to requested temperature. No sweet bananas available. Dessert was small and insignificant. Server was no where to be found the majority of our service. Had to keep asking her for things repeatedly and she would forget. Groupon deal was within a dollar of their typical
Weekend deal. Not pleased!

If you are a heavy meat eater who likes endless choices of different cuts/types, this is the place. I have to say I enjoyed the extensive salad bar even more. Some unique items. This would be good if you were trying to be lo carb...but you'd miss that great salad bar option and yummy empanadas. Very nice having a bottle of decent wine with your meal. Makes the price paid much more reasonable overall. Sangria was too sweet, but that is my taste.

The Knife is our favorite place to eat. Located by the Sawgrass Mall you can also shop before or after. The price is $32.95 for weekend dinners and is well worth it. You get a fabulous salad bar, soup, sides, and a large selection of meat (ask the server for a filet) on the grill. Also includes one bottle of wine or 2 glasses or beer per person and dessert. The flan is to die for. The meat is very good but not the quality you would find in a fine steak house. It is not quiet and a great place for a party. There is also a separate room for large parties.
