From our menu, savour a dry-aged New York Striploin, delicious Porterhouse, Kobe rib-eye or local filet mignon, all cooked to your specifications. Finish off with an amazing sampling of fine cheeses, a specialty liqueur and a decadent dessert. Downstairs, The Grill at CUT features a fun and funky atmosphere, perfectly paired with a gourmet burger menu with your choice of sophisticated toppings and sides.

Diner Reviews
  • "We came to Cut for our anniversary (and the staff were unaware) and it was amazing. The service was spot on - just enough attention and knowledge from our server to ensure we understood the offerings, but not too over the top. We both ordered local cuts of steak, and were not disappointed by the flavour or the results. The sides were also done perfectly, and overall, the food quality was well worth it. I have spent almost as much at a crappy chain restaurant for a steak, and will say that an evening at Cut is well worth it. I thoroughly enjoyed our first experience and will be back!"

  • "Service was friendly, the atmosphere/ambiance was subdued and enjoyable, allowing a private dining experience even though there were muptiple groups dining that evening. The food was excellent and portions were appropriate to the price and appetite. Wonderful evening!"

  • "This was my third visit to Cut Steak house. The service as always was excellent, staff is very knowledgable and friendly and did a great job of pairing wine with our meal. The food was just ok. The lobster risotto was bland, steak was good correctly. Left feeling like I could have prepared a better meal at home."

  • "The steak tartare was among the best I've had. The service was efficient and very friendly. I wish we'd ordered Caesar salad to watch it prepared table side. The various carts, including meat on display, made for a great show."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Hands Down the best meal I have ever consumed!!! If I were offer any areas to improve, the atmosphere is some what noisy & it would be nice to have warmed bread but who cares when the rest of the experience was that good."

  • "We took our son to Cut for the first time on his 16th birthday last year, he loves a good steak so we thought this would be a great place to celebrate such a big milestone birthday. The atmosphere is always so nice at Cut the servers and presentation really make you feel special and our son was so impressed that he wanted to come back again for his 17th birthday! I think this is going to be a birthday tradition. Thank you for making our experience such an enjoyable time we always leave feeling full, appreciated and satisfied. The food is always exceptional and service is top-notch!!"

  • "Celebrating a birthday, new marriage engagement, new job & cross-country move, Reservation & flowers delivery equistite & menu presentation thorough! I was SO EXCITED for our local dry aged ribeye & 2 lb lobster entrees. ABSOLUTE WORST entrees we have ever experienced. Paradise Farm ribeye was grissley & chewy, lobster was cooked to rubber texture and was the smallest lobster I've ever seen. I left almost in tears after paying our bill shy of $200. This was to be an extra special celebration & CUT's food quality and perhaps chef expertise was horrible. We will never NEVER go back & unfortunately can't recreate probably one of our most special occasions we will want to hold dear to our hearts! Big Bummer!"

  • "Food was good. For a $50 steak to have to buy all your sides is a little crazy. 3 people $350 meal with some wine. Could have been worse. Service was good but a little slow. They were busy"

  • "We have been to Halifax several times and walked past the restaurant as we had never heard much about it. What a great find. We were staying at the Marriott Courtyard right downtown Halifax and didn't want to walk in the rain so we decided to try Cut Steakhouse as it was right beside the hotel. We were a little hesitant as when we went in there was a basic restaurant on the main level and a sign pointing upstairs to the Cut restaurant. What a surprise. The food and service were incredible. A lot of nice little touches that you don't see in many restaurants any more....fresh roses, 3 kinds of sea salt, caesar salad made fresh at your table, individual coffee french presses, etc. They were also excellent with allergies."

  • "Food was ok ...not outstanding..... Nice atmosphere . Steak was a little disappointing for the premium price we paid... G"

  • "My husband and I always choose a higher end restaurant to celebrate our anniversary and birthdays. This time we chose Cut. The ambiance was nice, service very good and the food tasty. We liked the steak display to give an idea of what we wanted and we loved the made-at-your-table ceasar salad and the cheese display. Although all was good, it unfortunately didn't wow us like some of our favourites: Press Gang, Nectar and Ryan Duffy's (can't beat their steaks). I would recommend checking it out as it was a nice experience but it'll likely be my only one. "

  • "We rarely eat out, and when we do it's usually a "budget-friendly" place. After receiving a tax refund we chose to take a portion and treat ourselves to a lavish meal. Cut was on the top of our list of places we didn't think we'd ever make it to, so we decided to try it. We were very impressed! I'm not a big steak lover so that part alone wasn't worth the $$ to me, but when I combine it with the rest of the meal (especially the table-side made caesar salad), the ambience, the service, and even the complimentary banana mini-loaf they gave us on the way out, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and felt the evening was worth the splurge. We were even able to partake in nice conversation because it was very cozy, in a formal way, and not too noisy."

  • "My boyfriend and I had never been to Cut before. I would absolutely love to go again. We both had an amazing experience and our food was amazing. Steve was our waiter and he was above and beyond what I would have ever expected. It's definitely something we will do again. "

  • "This is a special restaurant for a special meal. The service is very attentive but not intrusive. The house specialty is aged beef, "the" reason to eat here and why a special occasion is needed to warrant the price."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Reservation was earlier than we would normally make due to the concert, so were the first diners to arrive. Strange walking into an empty dining room, but the staff make us feel right at home. Friendly, efficient and professional service throughout by the entire team; they seem to love their jobs and enjoy representing the restaurant. Found the discussion on the dry-aged beef a little lengthy, but perhaps just because I've heard it all before elsewhere. Steak was perfectly done and flavourful. The tomato-based sauce saved the quinoa croquettes (think falafel). The steamed asparagus was a little overdone and didn't need the Hollandaise sauce - a little butter and pepper or herbs would have been fine. Wine list tends to the $$$ side."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "At one point my boyfriend stopped eating and looks at me with a very serious look on his face and says.. " This is the best steak I have ever had in my life!" I think that sums it up!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Not a bad spot for my first time. Don't think I would go there again. Not my style of restaurant. Food lacked flavour but the steak was very tender. Never ate a steak like that before."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "The steak lacked flavour and what flavour it did have was not to my liking. Highly over rated in my opinion."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Service and food are both excellent. Good meat presentation for those first timers to the CUT explaining the cuts of beef and also mentioning that the sides are large and can be shared. WE have eaten here many times and always have been well looked after. If something is not right they look after tit immediately."

  • "Cut has a great ambiance and wonderful service staff. The cocktail list is mediocre at best and relays on trendy gins rather than focus on solid classic cocktails. I ordered a Perfect Manhattan made with Makers Mark and my partner ordered a Vodka Martini. Both Of these beverages had no taste and were "watery". For a great cocktail list and properly made cocktails, see Bar Isabel in Toronto. The only food item that was "ok" was the Foie Gras. The oysters were questionably fresh, the Jumbo Shrimp were a little dry and the tuna was underwhelming. The 28oz. Rib Steak was tough and grainy which I feel was a result of improper cooking technique. Sides all had "Indian" flavour influences which do not fit the Ultra Steakhouse feel."

  • "From the hostess greeting to the banana-bread goodbye, the service was impecible. Our servers, Holly and Steve were nothing short of wonderful. Even Nicholas, the gentleman who prepared our salad was friendly. Special thanks to Steve for chasing us down the street to return my moms eyeglass cleaning cloth that she had forgotten. :D Thank you all for a night to remember. We cannot wait to return!"

  • "My wife was promoted at her work so we thought we would dine there in celebration as a family. The online booking tool made reservations extremely easy! I called to confirm my booking and the staff was extremely friendly and I felt the welcoming already! When we arrived there was no fuss seating we were shown right to or seats and taken very well care of throughout the meal. We had brought 2 younger children and the staff went right out of their way to assure they were also taken care of. When we left the greeter gave each of our boys a parting gift of banana bread! Which our boys were very excited about:) we enjoyed our visit and would most definitely visit again!"

  • "Once we arrived at Cuts, the staff was friendly, professional, and very helpful. We have dined there twice, the first being a very special occasion, and the second to celebrate an anniversary. The head waiter was so knowledgeable and friendly, it really made us feel very special, and at ease. My wife had ordered a drink and found that it was too bitter for her liking, but the Head Waiter working with your Bartender figured out a solution, and it now it is her favourite drink at home. If you love steak, wine, and being treated like a VIP, we would recommend Cuts for a fantastic dining experience."

  • "Cut is by far the best steak I have ever had. The service was quick and prompt, the servers found a way to make sure we were constantly content but without bothering us, which is a delicate balance to properly do. Every single dish we had was amazing! I would recommend the quinoa croquettes and the tempura onion rings to compliment some amazing garlic mashed and vichy-style carrots! This was my first time at Cut, and I will definitely be back!"
