For $160 a steak, with everything a la carte, you would expect the steak to be outstanding - but it wasn't!
I wanted to take my wife out for a nice dinner for her birthday. After reading the reviews, I decided on The Cut and made reservations. We were on time and they seated us right away. When we got to our table my wife commented that it looked like an ultra modern 1950's diner. It was very loud and crowded with many tables very close together and not much room. Very unromantic. Our chairs kept getting bumped by people being seated or getting up and we had to duck the waiters serving food, as well as holding our water glasses from tipping over. You could hear everything everyone was saying all around you and some of the things were very private and should not have been said in public, so we did not talk very much. My wife ordered the $160 steak and I ordered the $60 steak. We tried each others and there really was not much difference. They were very good - just not outstanding. We have had better steaks for a lot less money. The sides, desserts, and coffee were very good as well. The service was average with us having to ask several times for more water and coffee. I was surprised to see on the bill an extra charge for bread when we asked for more. Our bill came to $350, but the reason it was so inexpensive was because we did not have drinks, other than coffee and water, and did not have a salad or appetizer. The couple next to us did and they were very shocked when their bill came to over $500.
All in all, it was a pretty expensive meal, really not worth that much money, and the decor, seating, and noisiness of the restaurant, make it a forgettable and disappointing experience. We will not come here again.
