A word from CUT by Wolfgang Puck at The Beverly Wilshire
There is strength in numbers and the June 2006 opening of Southern California’s most anticipated restaurant in years – CUT and ultra lounge – sidebar, the triad of master chef Wolfgang Puck, renowned architect Richard Meier and the acclaimed Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons Hotel, became the most excited and talked-about restaurant and lounge threesome in the 21st century. A chic spot in the heart of Beverly Hills, CUT has become the place to see and be seen and has garnered high praise from prestigious outlets including the Los Angeles Times (Three Stars), Wall Street Journal and Wine Spectator, and was awarded “Restaurant of the Year” by noted food critic John Mariani in Esquire magazine. In 2007, CUT was nominated for "Best New Restaurant" by the James Beard Foundation, considered one of the highest marks of distinction within the culinary community. CUT is the recipient of one star in the prestigious Michelin Guide, 2008 and 2009 Los Angeles editions.Continued

- Lost its vibrant edge already.Foodieguy13VIPDined on 8/30/2014Big holiday weekend and dull. No energy. Forgot our cocktails... Waiter paid for them but there goes the purpose of dinner!!! WP would be disappointed if he knew it was me:(
- Hit or missOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/30/2014I've been to CUT about 8 times, both the Beverly Hills and Las Vegas locations. The first time I went was unreal, in a great way. Although pricey, it was absolutely the best ribeye I'd every eaten, hands down. The second time was nothing like the first. The steak was mediocre and ridiculously overpriced because of that. The next 3 or 4 times were solid as far as the food is concerned and the service is always good, however, I did see someone (BH location) preparing food behind a little counter near the entrance, lick his finger while preparing something, then proceed to use said finger to touch more food that was to be served. I brought it to someone's attention, but not sure if anything was done about it. Went last week and steak was raw.Special Features:
- Not a CUT above...OpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 8/28/2014The king crab and shrimp Louis appetizer was delicious. The warm asparagus with a poached egg and bacon vinaigrette was not warm, the egg was overcooked and the dressing lacked flavor, which is tough to imagine when bacon is involved. I had the dry aged 35 days rib eye and it was not cooked as ordered and it came out warm at best. Decent flavor but when not cooked right and not nice and hot, hard to say anything other than disappointing when talking steak served at this caliber steakhouse. The baby corn and tempura onion rings were both good, but the creamed spinach was not. It was bland, runny and served cold. Soufflé for desert was good.
- ready2eatDined on 8/26/2014I think this restaurant fit people with ego and show off. The food is good but not exceptional and it is way overpriced even for somebody with money . love4 foodSpecial Features:
- ScottFineDinerDined on 8/25/2014Outstanding meal. Great service. Energetic vibe. Steaks (numerous cuts) are wonderfully prepared. From the Wagyu (Japanese or American) to the 21 day dry aged, you cannot get a better prepared steak anywhere.Special Features:
- Great Los Angeles SteakHouseCcwhitDined on 8/22/2014Highly recommend Cut to anyone looking for a great steakhouse. The ambience is spectacular and the food lives up to the hype. The Side Bar was a great hangout waiting for the table. Nice drinks with a Dj playing tunes.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fantasticollie07Dined on 8/20/2014My husband and I were in Los Angeles for a week enjoying our vacation from Canada. We are a huge fan of Gordon Ramsay and have dined at a few of his restaurants and have really enjoyed the experience. While we were in Beverly Hills we decided to try Cut and we were so impressed with the food and service...this one beats Ramsay!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A ScenePrivateDInerVIPDined on 8/16/2014The room is very nice and one of the most clever of all is the Chairs! They are designed to be extremely comfortable and they are and they swivel making it very easy to get in and out. Who would think this would be included in a review? Well applause for that person who thought of it! The staff is very nice;servuce giid The food is very good as it should be but there are other special places around town that are just as good. The crowd is not so desirable...pretentious & loud The parking is a dismal mistake at best. Some would say a nightmare! After a 40 minute wait to retrieve our car, we got our money back and suddenly it appeared? Unbelievably disorganized. Overall, it is worth a one time visit but take a cab or UberSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Spectacular SteaksFoodtodi4Dined on 8/16/2014All 3 of us had the Japanese wagyu beef which was spectacular and was one of the best steaks any of us have had. The waiter also recommended a nice red to complement the steaks and went out of his way to make us all feel welcome and comfortable. A wonderful night!Special Features:
- Foodie18VIPDined on 8/16/2014After dining at Spago & The Bel Air Hotel I expected both the food & the service to be five stars here as well. Although it was very good, it was far from either of those Wolfgang restaurants. I'm glad I tried it once but I would not go back again.Special Features:
- Loved my Illinois steakTimberlane1VIPDined on 8/14/2014Born and raised in Illinois and just moved to LA from Chicago. First place ANYWHERE I was able to order specifically an ILLINOIS corn-fed bone-in filet. That in itself was interesting. The steak and sides and service and ambience were fabulous. Chicago-class steakhouse with all the Beverly Hills glitz you would expect from the man who earned his chevrons at Baumaniere, one of the special places in this solar system. Hats off!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Only average steakBigDaddy1957Dined on 8/11/2014The service was great, the location and ambiance are fantastic, too bad the steaks are below par, not too tender and were overcooked. I've had much better food at joints that charge 1/3rd as much. In fact, one of the best meals ever was at CUT...in Las Vegas. Also, when I made the reservation on Open Table I noted it was a special occasion, my wife's 65th birthday. Nothing from the restaurant about that, they must have missed it or didn't get the info from my reservation. We celebrated her 60th at CUT as well...in Las Vegas.
- My favorite restaurantmmonetDined on 8/9/2014Open kitchen with the view to devils food creation and decoration. Great service, exellent food and beautiful ambience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best steak I ever had.Vega1968Dined on 8/7/2014Best steak I ever had, the mixed drinks were delicious, and their signature dish, the bone marrow appetizer will blow your mind... It's not inexpensive by any means, but worth it. Wolfgang was even working in the kitchen and came out to say hi to the guests..Special Features:
- DeliciousspatellosDined on 8/4/2014Our meal was truly delicious. It had the same amazing food as an upscale steakhouse without a much more relaxed and comfortable yet hip and modern ambience.Special Features:
- Eh.MessmerizerDined on 8/2/2014Being a Wolfgang Puck restaurant, I expected ALL the food to be exceptional. A LOT of reviews said certain things were just ok & I didn't believe it -well- believe it! I had the GrassFed Filet Mignon which was good. BUT I've had steaks at cheaper places that melt in my mouth orgasmic style. This didnt. We got the Mac 'nCheese, that people had recommended- and it was nothing special. We also got the green beans which had no burst of flavor. They were completely forgettable. I did enjoy the dessert which wasn't actually an option on the menu. It was a blueberry ice cream baked alaska thing. And it was nice that they asked if we were celebrating anything and brought it out with a candle. I paid $300 for two of us.Special Features:
- SMGTDined on 7/31/2014always good...The sides are terrific...it can be noisy, but not too bad that night..Special Features:
- Great FoodfabfoodieDined on 7/25/2014The food was fantastic. Has the lamb and the bone marrow, both excellent. The cocktails were also great.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- SublimevelcroVIPDined on 7/25/2014I was reticent about dining here. The prices are exorbitant and I am not a steak eater, but wow what a great meal!!! Everything from the cocktails to the dessert was special. The music that they play is even noticeably fine. Deserves all it's rave reviews!Special Features:
- Excelente service and food quality.islandcruiserDined on 7/24/2014I went there with my daughter as a special ocassion and came very content with the experience. I will certainly recommended to anyone wishing to have a great dining experience in Los Angeles.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DisappointingToomaDined on 7/24/2014I've been to several locations around the world, this by far rhe worst!
- Bad serviceOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/23/2014Booked a table for 4 at 9pm. Didn't get seated until 9:40. Very rude host. Spending almost $1,000 for dinner and had to put up with the rude receptionist/host. Bad taste in our mouth.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A Cut Above. Way above.foodistaVIPDined on 7/22/2014A new colleague and I were debating the best steak in LA. I did some research and was drawn to Cut for its consistently good reviews and interesting selection of non-standard sides. The evening was a huge success -- from the decor to the staff to the extraordinary food, and some MAJOR star sightings. For such a big restaurant the notice level was moderate, loud enough to be buzzy but not such a din that we had to shout our conversation. But the steak. Oh. The. Steak. My friend had the bone in rib eye that wod transport any meat lover to carnivore heaven. The sear gave a heavenly crust, the texture was sublime. I had the three piece sampler. Each steak had a distinct nature and flavor divine. Amazing sides. Bone marrow flan a MUST!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- NROOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 7/22/2014Open Table provided a quick and easy reservation (for the 6:15 seating). We were seated promptly as there was hardly anyone else there yet. The ambiance is consistent with the other reviews - nothing special. The team style service was prompt and attentive. The flavor of the steaks was outstanding even though the medium rare NY I ordered was really quite well into the medium range. When the waiter asked about the food, I mentioned the medium steak and he immediately offered to replace it. They might want to rethink the salt encrusted cooking style. The steak was much better after scraping it off. The wine list runs to the extravagant. The appetizers were good, and with a couple of sides, we were too full for dessert.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- greatnovnovinovDined on 7/18/2014Great experience. One of the Best steaks. The quality is the best of the best.Special Features:
- rickfleDined on 7/10/2014As good a steak as you will find in Los Angeles, served in a hip setting. Service and attention to detail are first class, as they should be at this price level. An outstanding experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- diningoutVIPDined on 7/8/2014we love this restaurant. it was an off night this time though. our friend's steak was overcooked. it took over an hour to get the appetizers. they were out of the dover sole (this has happened three out of the last four times we have been there - why even have it on the menu?). that said, it is a fantastic restaurant. they did everything they could to make up for a fairly inconsistent evening. they gave us complimentary desserts and a comp steak for our friend. regardless, it should have been smoother and they shouldn't be consistently out of one of the few non-steak items that they have on their great menu. we will go again and hope that it's much better the next time.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Food, Great ServiceOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 7/5/2014My mom, girlfriend and I dined here at 7:30pm Saturday evening July 5th. Our waiter, Eric, was friendly and informative. And the General Manager, Rikka, went above and beyond to make our dining experience excellent. The food quality was as excellent as the service.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Simply one of the bestFinediner24VIPDined on 6/27/2014CUT has never failed to provide an truly excellent dining experience. Although pricey it is simply excellent. My only gripe is the continued "checking in" by the staff. At one point I was interrupted 3 times in less than 5 min while enjoying my wife's company. This however does not change the fact that the food is EXCELLENT and the staff is knowledgeable and polite.Special Features:
- Fabulous dinnerChrisDined on 6/27/2014We've been to CUT before but this time we had a better experience. The pork belly and bone marrow were good. Our mac & cheese with jalapeno was just right. Our steaks were grilled perfectly and the service was excellent. We were well attended even though the restaurant was full. We really enjoyed not only our dinner but the service.Special Features:
- Steak?SteakmanVIPDined on 6/27/2014Excellent service was accompanied by so so food. Not really a steak house but more of a continental restaurant. That said, setting of tables very casual. Can't figure out exactly what kind of place this is.Special Features:
- Great Restaurant!DCS821Dined on 6/24/2014This place is always delicious! You absolutely cannot go wrong eating here!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Incredible serviceMichmacDined on 6/20/2014My husband and I went for our 5 year anniversary. Our server was awesome. He had read the notes on my reservation saying it was our anniversary and that I cannot have dairy (which is a major bummer because there is so much amazing stuff I had to steer clear of!). The food was great and we really felt it was an amazing dining experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Overhyped steakhouseRm360VIPDined on 6/19/2014This is a overhyped steakhouse. Food was average. Wait was very long even after we had a reservation. Once seated, service was fine.Special Features:
- Meat Meat MeatGoodyDined on 6/17/2014I have now tried CUT in Beverly Hills and Las Vegas. I must say that they were both great and different at the same time. You should go when you have a big appetite and an even bigger expense account.....Special Features:
- Overhypedhealthyfoodie310Dined on 6/12/2014We went for my husband's birthday. We'd heard it was one of the best steakhouses in LA. Food quality is very important to us, and we'd seen on the menu they posted online that they had grassfed steaks. When we got there, the dining room was noisy and cafeteria-like. The service was harried and inconsistent. We both have food allergies that we informed them about ahead of time, and they brought us food with our allergens twice. The cocktail menu was OK, but not exactly innovative. They were out of the grassfed steaks (we wouldn't have gone if we'd known that). My husband got steak anyway, which was fine, not amazing. I had salmon which was bland and had clearly not been fully defrosted before cooking. After that, we didn't stay for dessert.Special Features:
- A Salty Cut of SteakRickDined on 6/9/2014What decent chef would encase prime steak, or any steak for that matter, in a salt crust? My advice is to buy steak at Gelsons and B-B-Q it yourself because there is no point spending money on a tender steak at Cut when all you can taste is salt. Two thumbs down. Rick
- Impeccable ServiceMmmFoodDined on 6/7/2014Came here with my girlfriend for my birthday. The waiter was already up to speed with the note that I left in the OpenTable reservation regarding certain allergies, and he continued to be attentive and accommodating regarding our restrictions. Additionally, the vibe at CUT was much, much better than the other steakhouses in Los Angeles: not as crowded as Mastro's (better steak than Mastro's too), and certainly not as clubby as STK and Boa. Food: Illinois Bone In Rib Eye - Excellent Oregon Grass Fed Filet Mignon - Very good, not as good as the Rib Eye Roasted Fingerling Potatoes - Excellent, chunks of bacon were delicious Asparagus with Mushrooms - Very goodSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- docszc1Dined on 6/7/2014very expensive for what you get. steak was not hotSpecial Features:
- June 6, 2014 birthday dinnerfoodiefanDined on 6/6/2014What I liked: The Japanese and American Wagyu both had great texture and flavor. The maple-glazed pork belly had good flavor. There were 6 types of bread. What I disliked: The service from our waitress was very slow. The sides dishes were plain, overcooked, and nothing special. The bone marrow flan flavor was overwhelmed by diluting it with egg, mushsroom, Italian parsley, and red onion.Special Features:
