“Best Steak in Quito”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Knife Steak House is a great place for a tasty and well prepared steak. I was hosted and welcomed by their Chef which made our restaurant experience more enjoyable. Probably the best rib eye I have ever had.
Also, their ceviche is a "must try" option.
In addition, this place offers a very nice and friendly environment.

I have been in many steak houses around quito, Knife really liked for their cuts of meat, the wine, the antencion I received and the atmosphere of the place.

I highly recommend it, for those who like meat in a good restaurant..

“By far the best steak house in quito!!!”
Reviewed 29 November 2013 via mobile

Usually meat is not so good in quito. Mostly over cooked, dry, and thin is how most places serve their meat. Which is why the price is unbelievably low. At knife, however, the steak rivaled ruth&chris's or Morton's any day. For half the price too. I had the imported rib eye, at $31 was a bit pricey for the local average, but completely worth it. In fact, I've been back twice more since the first time. Also, my kids say it's the best burger ever, even better than Lucia's pie house and grill.

“Great Burgers, Steak.”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

I live close by and go to Knife probably once a month. It's a great place to host chill business meetings. The food is good and the extra attention to detail they place makes for great dishes. The only downside is that they don't serve food in the evening.

“Good place for steaks in Quito”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

At Knife, they know their meat. I ordered a rib eye which was slightly hard (my guess was beacusa they didn't let it sit for a bit before or after cooking it) but flavour was delicious. . I mentioned the issue to the staff and they took really seriously my suggestion and offered me a discount for my next time, something that is rare at quito's restaurants. My colleague's orders where excellent.
