Description: Authentic Parrilla Argentina "all inclusive" restaurant. What makes us unique is the quality of our traditional charcoal-grilled Argentinian style cuts of meats, allowing our customer to not only unlimited choices of meat but also salads, appetizers, beverages, and dessert. Our experience in the restaurant business dates back to 1986 in Argentina, where we coveted the idea of offering our cuisine to other parts of the world, especially our top-choice meats. We at The Knife believe that our main goal is to offer our very best. It is a pleasure to see our customers enjoy our restaurant and cordial service while savoring the extensive variety and excellent quality of each and everyone one of our products.

Went in not knowing it was a buffet. Decided to stay and try it. After we were seated the waitress quickly ran off a list of food, drinks,etc. If you want French fries, mashed potatoes, and bread you must ask the waitress. So right away I ordered all 3. We travel a lot and have been to many buffets. This one lacked so many side dishes. You had a very very small selection of salad fixings, 1 pasta salad, and 1 potato salad to choose from. The meat selection was ok. They gave you such small portions.
I was so disgusted when I had seen a child put food back into the buffet, a grown man reuse his dirty plate, and the best. A teen grab food with her bare hands and go outside to feed a squirrel. She then went back to the buffet and dug her hands back into the food, smelled what she had picked up and put it back. Keep in mind, this was the same hand she just fed the squirrel with.
While this was happening I was waiting for our waitress to bring us our drinks and the sides I had asked for 3 times. Everyone that was sat in our section after us were getting refill after refill of drinks and sides while the waitress never came back to our table. I guess maybe because we were the only ones who spoke English. I strongly suggest buffet style restaurants should have patrons watch a video of buffet etiquette.
I didn’t see a dessert table which was fine since we were so grossed out by the disgusting patrons we left. When we got back to South Beach we went to eat at CJs crab shack. Much better food.

Eating the buffette here is quite a delicious experience ... bottle of wine, roast of all kinds of meat and definitely a place for big appetites and good taste. It was a great discovery and the service is incredible. Very very highly recommended!

Hard to find and no response when i called but the food and service was amazing. The salads and the selections. And then the meats and veggies on the grill. Grilled fish. Grilled steaks. Grilled sweet potato. Yum. Yum. Oh yes. And a large dessert menu too!
