Cut Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
Have had great dining experiences in the past here but this time was let down. Service was non-existent at times. Had to top up our own wine glasses and water glasses only refilled when we asked. Empty plates left on table much too long after it was obvious that we were finished eating. Everyone's steaks/main course arrived together but side dishes were slow to arrive. By the time the sides got passed around and we were ready to eat, my steak was cold.
Overall, a disappointing experience, especially when I know it can be better.
Our last night of vacation in the maritime provinces, and wanted a splurge dinner. Asked around Halifax and Cut came coming up. Booked on Open Table.
Classy surroundings, knowledgeable staff, food was very good, but not exceptional.
The real rub was with the staff. First waiter was very knowledgeable, but came accross condescending. He explained we'd have 2 wait staff seeing to our needs. Food and wine arrived promptly, at first. As the restaurant became busier service became less than stellar. We noticed our original waiter was waiting on others, making no attempt to acknowlege us. New waiter never introduced himself or explained he would be assuming responsibilities for our table. \
Overall the food was very good, but not great. A good server would have totally turned it around. Let's just say we won't be returning, or recommending it to others.
Everything was mostly good except the steak, the reason we were there. It was cooked correct but the boneless ribeye was flavourless. It didn't have hardly any char on them at all. The first thing I noticed was my steak wasn't cut evenly. The rest of our food was really good. Service was great. Oh yes I almost forgot. The vegetable special was fried cauliflower. I couldn't eat it at all. It was bitter and oily.
Well the atmosphere was very plesent.The staff was most attenative and plesent.The wine was great.Ordered a 8oz. striploin,the mushrooms, and friets.The steak was overcooked for med. rare.The mushrooms where great,and the friets were not crisp on the outside,and seemed to absord the oil they were cooked in.Desert was creme brulee,which had a hint of banana in the custard,and the caramelized sugar on top was just the right thickness.
Being already 17 years in our summer home near Hfx, we first were invited for steaks to Run Duffy ( spring garden Rd). That was the ( high) level until they moved.
Three years ago we thought about the CUT... an were disappointed concerning service and the meat.
Now: service very good, the Cesar's salad excellent and the steaks too.
Great wine list and the barkeeper knows how to make a vodka martini ( most think that's easy, but a dry one isn 't.
We come back within the next 20 days....
The US Ribeye has been totally overcooked. It was ordered medium rare and served done. This can happen and was not a problem as it has been solved by serving a new one ! But !!!!!!!!!! :
The staff startet arguing about it and tried to convince me that the Ribeye is medium rare and that just the light reflects it wrong. Out of my professional experience in this industry I do know what I'm talking about. ! Please never do this again with your customer.
Furthermore they tried to serve me not the ordered Sauce Bernaise but something which looked like a butter/ espuma and told me that both will melt on the beef anyhow. And again arguments.
A Bernaise is a Bernaise and something else.
Postive : One of the best wine lists in town !
Cut is a great steakhouse with a nice wine list.
I've been at Cut three times.
I've settled on the USDA Ribeye as the best. It's juicy on the inside and a delicious crust on the outside. Perfection.
The table side Cesar Salad is a fun show and fantastic tasting.
The cheese cart is inexpensive and it shows. The cheeses are fairly non-complex and remind you of grocery store cheese.
They should really upgrade their selection and price point.
I recommend that you avoid the Wagu steak. Independent of the additional cost, which I'd be ok with, it's not at all a good steak.
I picked it on my first visit and it almost kept me from coming back. The other options looked interesting so was up for one more try.
The Ontario Hormone Free beef is excellent as well. Just slightly less marbling...so it's a personal preference call.
Interesting menu - some old classics such as Cesear salad (ususally made at the table unless one is outside on the patio), shrimp cocktail, creme brûlée, peppercorn sauce, etc. Most appreciated is the offer by the wait staff to accommodate sharing portions. Steak is definitely very good and lamb shanks will be my order next time. Enjoyed the market vegetable dish - quite inventive and tasty. Coffee was so-so. Would have appreciated a cup and saucer rather than a mug.
Definitely will be back.
Elegant, quiet and luxurious a la carte steakhouse. The servers are very helpful in guiding through first timers. The price is definitely not every-dining range (maybe for some), but the quality and quantity more than justify it. The wine list is exhaustive. But the cocktails are superbly made.
We used to be huge fans of The Cut until this last visit. Once again the menu has changed and the prices have climbed. The portion size has declined. The taste in some things was excellent - table side Caesar salad, steak tartare but the add-on scallops and crab topping to the steaks were both big disappointments. No more banana bread on the way out and the total amount of the bill, for less than we usually have had, was much higher. Hate to say we will not be back, Halifax is too full of great restaurants to make this one stand out anymore.
Capital Grille this is not. A wannabe facsimile it is. The steak quality is comparable but no filet mignon option...though, the tenderloin is a good choice cooked medium. The bone out Canadian striploin was fattier then expected but tasty. However, for the price, the size of the sides was something of a surprise, as the waiter said they were big enough to share, but only if you're sharing with a bird, it seems. Quality wise, they were nothing spectacular. The mashed potatoes too salty. The cocktails are good and large, and the banana creme brûlée nothing to write home about. The cheesecake was ordinary. Bill for 3 including tip tax and 3 drinks: $400. I wish that the second waiter who served us towards the end washed better, he had B.O. Yuck. Shouldn't happen in a place like this.
Disappointed with the service, very inattentive. They forgot to put a candle in my wife's dessert for her birthday. When the realized it, they brought a second dessert and put a candle in it. But it took the luster off the occasion. Steaks were very tender, but they were served at room temperature and they had to be sent back and re-cooked. Very expensive. Value would have been acceptable if the service measured up. Would not recommend this restaurant.
Cut is on our list every visit to Halifax. Steak is the only thing I would consider ordering here as they do it so well. They have several choices including Waygu beef and all are well aged. Service is very attentive, great wine list and the "table side" Caesar salad is exceptional. The only issue was that the restaurant was so crowded that it ended up being prepared and then brought to the table so you miss the flair of the prep. If you want a quiet table, ask for one by the window .. there's also a bit of a water view from there. We will return!
