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.

We decided to go here for my husband's 40th, and I will highlight the evening. Arrived and was seated during some sort of alarm/flashing light was going off. I had a slight headache from the strobe lights. Did not get the meat preview/overview, meat was not done properly and had to send back and ate it 10 minutes after everyone else had eaten their food. Double-charged for drinks and when we brought all this to the manager's attention, not really apologetic. For this kind of $, I expect a lot more. Especially because Spago is completely opposite. Will not go back.

I was excited to go here after reading a lot of the great reviews.
The food here isn't bad- BUT they are charging outstanding food prices, and the food is a far, far cry from that.
The menu is so expensive- much moreso than the much better Maestros.
Also, we waited over 1 hour for our food.
My friend's steak was supposed to be med well and they did it med rare- when he asked for it to be redone, it came back virtually inedible.
The overpriced dessert was only so-so.
When we asked for more bread, they told us there would be a $6 charge!

If you want to be swept up into the world of over-glamorizing steak, then this place is for you. The room is cold and noisy. The view is of the entry and exit ramp for cars coming and going from the hotel. It's a scene, not relaxing nor is the food worth the price. Try Dan Tana's or the Grill. They always have had good steak and you know what you will get. Also try the chains like Arnie Mortons and Ruth's Chris, the original shrines to a piece of meat.

The ambience was great but I cannot say the same for our steaks. I ordered the Nebraska 35 day aged New York steak and my table mate ordered a American Wagyu Filet. The steaks were dry and charred on top. We both ordered the steaks medium rare and the steaks were anything but. The ends of the steak were medium well and middle was maybe medium. The bar tender offered to get us another steak but we passed. We didn't feel like waiting another 25 mins for our food. The manager of the restaurant was nice and invited us back to try Cut again. I doubt I would go back, MASTROS is my place for steaks.

I am a self proclaimed foodie and love a great steak. I have had Wagyu before (at the French Laundry) which was wonderful, so when I ordered it from CUT I expected excellence and was very disappointed. The 6 oz Wagyu filet mignon was requested to be cooked medium-rare, and came out more on the medium side, and in some parts of the steak almost medium well. The steak as a whole was not cooked evenly which was a surprising for a restaurant of that caliber.The appetizer on the other hand, was very unique and flavorful, but still did not make up for the fact that they ruined a great piece of steak by not cooking in right. My friend who I was with ordered the Rib-eye, and although they claim to have nicely ""marbled"" steaks, hers left something to be desired. More than 30% of her steak was fat. I do have to say though that the flavor on both of the steaks was very good.
The ambiance was not quite up to par with what I would expect for a high end steak house. When we arrived, and it was still light out, the inside of the restaurant looked like a museum cafe rather than the fine dining restaurant it was.
Overall I would say this about CUT, the service was great, the meal was below my expectations, and the aesthetics could have used some work.

I have been to the CUT in Las Vegas. This one doesn't even compare.
Yes, I have to admit, we did see 2 celebrities, but that doesn't justify a great experience at a restaurant.
Their prices are ridiculously outrageous.
I asked the server for his suggestions for a juicy steak, and he recommended the bone in rib eye steak. I asked for it to be prepared medium. When I got it, not only was it very dry, and tasted a little bit of char burn on the surface of the steak, but I specifically told him I wanted juicy. There was no juicy in this steak.
Also...their side orders were the size of my palm, and averaged anywhere between $8-15.
I don?t want to say it was a bad experience, but I expected much more, especially since the Vegas one was a great experience all around.
