Our second visit and will return for a third...

About 2 years ago our family first went to The Knife. I was really pleased then with the experience. But you know how they say sometimes the memories are better than reality? That may be the case here, but it will not prevent us from returning. For the price, that includes a full bottle of... read more

we used a groupon, and paid half of what the price normally was. So good, I probably would have payed full price just to enjoy it. The service was wonderful. Enjoy all types of sides, salads, cheese, wine, meats, oh and the wonderful types of steaks, chicken, pork. Just everything was delicious.

Dinner for two w/Sangria was overly disappointing. The employees appeared accommodating to their ethnic clientele but these gringos were made to feel unwelcome. The salad bar is the back drop at center stage for group presentations and we were unlucky enough to endure a full hour of screaming, applause and announcements at a company outing. The loud speakers were extremely... More

Wife and I went there. When we first walked in it looked like a cafeteria with people lined up waiting for food, bad first impression. But when we actually lined up it didn't take long at all to get the meats and the selection was much better than a Brazilian style steakhouse. In a Brazilian you are stuck with what... More

A bit pricy but the food was good. Great service, had a good time enjoyed the beer and wine. Frankly a bit too much alcohol. Who can drive after that. Was not offered to bring back the rest for later.

I work with Marriott, so I know what makes the difference is the service and here was the best I had in a long time. John the server was very attentive and friendly which made us happy, but then the chef Armando came by the table and he was incredible!!! He made sure we tried different things, brought some fruit...

Was not impressed at all. should have spent that $35.00 somewhere else. Very disappointed with the food quality. The complimentary wine was awful. Couldn't finish a glass.

We would not go here again. Ever. We got a groupon for it, and thought it would be like a Texas De Brazil or something similar where they bring selections around to your table and cut it for you. I should have known when I saw their regular pricing was $30 for dinner and every meal includes a free bottle... More

We bought a groupon to try this place and I was concerned about moved reviews. From the moment we walked in, the place was a go! Huge salad bar with incredible variety. A big plus was that ingredients were listed for each Item in case of allergies. In addition, there is a charcuterie table. And OMG, the BBQ! A huge... More
