Location and contact

Voted Best Steakhouse in Dallas again in 2016 by D Magazine - Best of Big D! Committed to using the finest quality ingredients with true Texas roots, Chef John Tesar has built relationships with Texan ranchers and farmers including Heartbrand Beef and 44 Farms to ensure the best sourced meats. The cuisine at Knife melds classic and modern steakhouse dishes featuring all-natural born and raised Texas beef, pork and lamb in dry-aged prime cuts prepared in cast irons and customary steakhouse broilers, as well as specialty cuts such as chuck flap, outside skirt, tri tip, culet, beef cheeks, beef tongue, oxtail as well as rich, exotic Akaushi beef. Boasting more than the average steakhouse, the menu

I checked in today and was told the restaurant Knife was open until 11 pm. We ate elsewhere because the reviews were so bad about the staff and service. Returned from dinner at 1057 pm and went to the restaurant to have dessert. The bar...More

I actually feel bad for John Tesar. He has the most amazing steaks, burgers, and even pastas being plated here but somehow can't find one decent hostess, server, or manager to stay. There is one exception, if you eat at the bar or patio you...More

Had a very nice dinner celebrating my girlfriend’s birthday. The food was good, but there seemed to be some confusion as to what our table believed cream spinach was and the kitchen. My steak was cooked perfectly, the mushrooms, pomme purée, macaroni and cheese, and...More

Went here and was seated at the kitchen so I could get “dinner and a show”. I had the “pleasure” of hearing the staff in the open kitchen curse, talk about impregnating someone, and about lesbian encounters that one of the female cooks had. HIGHLY...More

In the mix of Dallas steakhouses I’ve heard great things about knife. It has been ranked highly in a number of articles. First, service was slow. From drinks to food, slow. More importantly the food was average at best. I took recommendations from our waitress....More

We had date night at the Knife this weekend. It was pretty good. Better than your standard chain steakhouse but definitely not as good as my favorite steakhouses. Loved the dressing in the complimentary cold veggie appetizer. Tuna tar tar was ok. I prefer it...More

The service was attentive and well timed but our waiter misled us about serving sizes (causing us to over order) and he was going to let a 7 year old order a large steak until I asked about a children’s menu. We felt he was...More
