    I have to say that this was a great find that was recomended to me by a wine distributor. The food was exceptional and the service was attentive and made for a great experience. Specialty cocktails were excellent. Aside from the fact that their porterhouse is amazing the bacon and the shrimp cocktail is a must have. I would go their for either a special night or for a business dinner.

    Cool vibe: big swanky booths, funky lighting. Clean and modern. (Not for you if you're looking for your father's steakhouse.) Not too crowded, which was nice. Good place to have a conversation. Steak was great: nicely seasoned, well cooked. Potatoes were ... eh. But the real drawback was the wait staff. Fine if what you want them to do is bring your food. But if you recognize that you're going to pay a lot for this meal and you expect service that rises to that level, you're going to be disappointed. At least I was.

    Early for our reservation, my husband wanted to run across the street to get batteries for our son's chirping smoke detector. "No," my son insisted, "let's just go in." 5 minutes later, a man walks up, places a 9v on the table and says, "if the gentleman still needs this." This charming bit of business earns this restaurant 5 stars. Way to crush it, AC. The rest of the evening followed suit. We shared 2 enormous steaks and 3 sides (cauliflower, baked onion, dry aged potatoes), all delicious. Caesar salad was nicely presented (tho sadly, not made) tableside, but was a little bland, I have to say, and probably not worth it given the feast that followed. Overall, an incredibly pleasant dining experience for which we paid handsomely.

    This is the third time I have been to American Cut. The food is delicious. Their cocktail program is on point. Plank Old Fashioned and Bacon Apple Boom are tops. The steak tartare is one of the best in the city, and the brussel sprout salad is a great addition to the menu. I've enjoyed the porterhouse for two each time, and it is consistently perfect. The cauliflower in😓"sauce proposal" is the best preparation for cauliflower I've ever tasted. But the food is not why I keep coming back. The service here is spectacular. Emily, Lou, and Ruben are excellent servers. Maryette (sp?) and Lou (yep, same Lou as above) are intelligent and charming sommeliers. Ian, Justin, and the mgmt staff are genuine and helpful. Thank you all! Be back soon!

    The restaurant is beautifully appointed and big bucks were spent on design and lighting. The menu is simple and straightforward. This is a basic steak menu with some chicken and fish thrown in. Typical steak house sides. What I did not like about the preparation of the steaks--and we had the NY Strips and a filet mignon--was the rub on the meat. In addition, the rub had way too much salt--and I do like salt. The pure flavor of the meat was masked and that took away from the enjoyment of that steak flavor. The quality of the meat itself is good...just unnecessary to put a rub on the meat. If I did go back, I would say just simple, grilled steak.

    Food was very disappointing. Steak was burnt and had lumps of salt all over it. The broccolini was just weird. Again very salty but even without that the combination of flavours was just bizarre. The dry aged potatoes were again very salty. 1 course, a bottle of wine and tip came to $220, not exactly value for money. Having said that the service was very good and the restaurant was busy with a decent atmosphere.

    We showed up to this restaurant at 9:15PM for a 9:30 reservation. No problem! We were seated immediately on a somewhat "wet" Wednesday night. Despite the lousy weather, the place was pretty crowded. Mostly males with a handful of gorgeous females. Lots of suits, no one was wearing sneakers and everyone was sipping on whiskey. The NY Cut steak and the chilli lobster are to die for!

We are also huge fans of Forge so we knew the food would be great! Fun place to go as a couple or a night out with friends. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Drinks were fantastic!

    Once again, American Cut lives up to its hype. Although, it seems the crowd has died down, the dining room and private rooms were still packed. Had (for the 3rd time) the Surf and Turf. It was presented a little messier this time but still full of flavor. Apps were spot on but the Broccolini was no where near what I would have expeted being too wilted and way too salty. Can't beat the chic decor and atmosphere and will eventually return for a boys night out dinner. The Bacon Apple Boom cocktail was a good recommendation from the bar (and I am not a cocktail guy by any means) but a good refreshing drink. Amerone wine was a heavy full bodied wine but paired nicely with out S&T. If you're into trying a new style of steak, make this your place.

    Fantastic restaurant. Upon entering we were promptly greeted and ushered to our requested table near the bar. It was a fellas night out so we wanted to be in eyesight of all the happenings. Our wait staff were friendly and added to the experience. The food was really good, my NY strip was a little more done than medium but was still very flavorful. The others in our group had filet and chicken, all without complaints. Please note: the drinks here are stout! (Not a bad thing at all!) so be careful, cobblestones and tipsy aren't the best look always! We will definitely be back!

    This was my first time at American Cut, and I was very happy with the overall experience. Most outstanding to me was the service. We had the porterhouse for two, a rib eye and the lamb for the table. Porterhouse was cooked perfectly, the meat itself was good but not great. I didnt enjoy the lamb that much (but im not too big on lamb) the rest of the table seemed to really enjoy the flavor. Drinks were great (expensive, but expected). deserts were excellent. The manager and head hostess came around periodically to check on us. Really appreciated the service. I'll be back to American Cut at some point in the near future.

    To start, we were recommended a wine to match our dining choices. He was right on. The wine was perfect. The steak tar tar was top notch. The pastrami spice rubbed steak was one of the best I've had. I topped it with foi gras to add some extra decadence. The pop corn ice cream sundae sounded weird but it was really delicious. I'm craving it now and will definitely make the trek back to Tribeca and dine there again.

    Very impressive. On my opentable rez, I noted that the dinner was for my boyfriends birthday. Upon arrival, we sat at the bar and were immediately given complimentary champagne without a word. So impressed and thoughtful! Bartender was amazing and friendly, and killer at his job. Food was amazing, the porterhouse for 2, cauliflower, and spinach was to die for. Cooked a perfect med rare.

    Empty on a Frid night at 7:30 in Aug 2014 Tons of seating and no one there. They had a great wine list, great enough to order something interesting, but wasn't overly long. the table ordered raw oysters, lobt chili, and a special veggie dish. All were good in their own right, but nothing over spectacular. the entrees were two NY Strips, 1 ribeye, and I Japanese Wagyu....everyone at the table said their steaks were over cooked...I was terribly disappointed. I was looking forward to the part of the evening only to have a medium steak, when I ordered Rare-Med Rare. Sides included potatoes, brocolli and mushrooms. they were all pretty good, but nothing blew me out of the water. Overall this place is average, would I come back? Not anytime soon.

The craft cocktail menu was very impressive and we enjoyed watching the bartender make all of the delicious libations. The Smoked Old Fashion was the group favorite!

    American Cut is a great take on a classic steakhouse in a refined setting with a great selection of meats and accompanying sauce options. The hangar steak with the chimichurri sauce was exceptional and understand that it is one of Chef Forgione's favorites. The interior is pleasant with comfortable seating mixed between booths and tables. While in the area don't forget to try Chef Forgione's name sake restaurant (Marc Forgione) and order the chili lobster and his Laos themed partner restaurant Khe-Yo.

    4th visit and progressively not impressing as much. The steak was a little overcooked on the edges and under cooked in the center and the portion size was well down from previous visits yet the prices seem to be getting higher. Wait staff seem focused on pushing additional food and drinks (appetizers, wine, desserts etc.). I hope the trend doesn't continue as my first two visits were very memorable.

    Walked up the stairs to the restaurant to be met by two patrons clearly intoxicated drinking on the terrace right in front of the door who became obnoxious and loud when we said "excuse me" to pass by to open the front door. We told the hostess who gave the appearance of concern. Five minutes later, the hostess sat those same obnoxious people two booths away from us. I discretely stood up and spoke with the hostess re. the clearly uncomfortable situation and she said "I thought that was a safe distance but you can speak to someone else about it." I had to stand up a second time to hunt down our server. I was asked to stand up during my meal so the staff could bring a chair through the dining room. The food was like airport quality at best.

    Simply put, a fantastic steakhouse in a city full of great steakhouses. The porterhouse was cooked perfectly and served with a bone marrow reduction (which, needless to say, you won't find at your standard steakhouse) and a homemade steak sauce, both of which were terrific. The sides were also out of this world - apple potato latkes and a glazed carrot that was unlike anything else I had ever tasted. The waitstaff was attentive, friendly, and explained everything in perfect detail. Kudos to everyone for a great dining experience, looking forward to returning!
