    Outstanding food and service. My apperizer was cooked and seasoned perfectly (scallops), the main course (salad and gourmet burger) melted in my mouth, and the desserts (crepes) exceeded my expectations.

    We enjoyed another fantastic dinner at Cut Steakhouse this past Friday. The entire team were great. However, our main server, Holly, was an absolute gem (again), and made us feel so comfortable. Wine, steaks, sides, desserts - all wonderful. We've shared our experience over and over again, and look forward to many happy returns!

    While Cut prepared an excellent meal, the restaurant suffers from bad timing. On our recent visit, we were seated 15 minutes later than our reservation time (8:30 p.m.). We then waited 15 minutes to be offered a drink, then another 30 minutes to place our order. Our our order was taken only after requesting that we might order. Following placing our order, the food came in rapid succession (spite?) not allowing us a dignified amount of time to digest each course. Given the calibre of the food, the service needs to match.

    Cut is the place to go if you want the best steak in town. Dry aged beef, sourced both locally and from abroad. My wife ordered the local grass-fed striploin while I had the USDA corn-fed ribeye. The difference in taste profiles between the two was surprising, with the local beef having a much richer, "beefier" taste. Both steaks were prepared precisely as requested and the sides were a great complement. Cut also has an extensive wine list with price points for all budgets and occasions. The dessert menu was short but refined. The personal banana bread loaves the hostess gave us on our way out of the restaurant was a delicious next-day reminder of how much we enjoyed our night out at Cut Steakhouse. We'll be back!

    We dined at Cut on Saturday night. The service, food and ambience were outstanding. The beef was cooked to perfection and the sides offered a very tasty variety to complete the meal. My wife raved about her Caesar, which is their own special mix. Overall an excellent dining experience. We will return for sure.

    Went to Cut to celebrate our daughter's engagement - party of 5. Seated right away even though we arrived a bit before our reservation time; the steak choices were explained well and in a pleasant manner. Everyone of us said our steak was the best we had ever tasted...then we shared and each one was better/different but NONE were a disappointment in any way!! The Ceasar Salad is a MUST!!! The garlic mashed were light, buttery and not too heavy. Even the kale was a great side dish. AND - the BEST creme brulee I've ever tasted!!! Creamy and smooth, lightly vanilla, sugar crisped to perfection. Price was even great - we don't mind paying a bit more for the service and quality, but this was a better deal than any restaurant in Toronto!

    We where lucky enough to one of the two tables out on the terrace and the other one stayed unoccupied so we had a wonderful private supper outside. The food was excellent so was the service. The ceasar salad was the best we have ever had. Made fresh right in front of you. The salmon melts in your mouth and the steak was very tasty and tender. Loved that you order every part of your main course separately, meat, veggies, starch. Great idea!

    First time at Cut. Food was wonderful, very good choices and great services. Restaraunt did not have a great atmousphere. Brightly lit for not very romantic. Also, lots of noise from staff in bar area. Also, there was a lot of noise form the mixing of the drinks as well. Even though food was very good, atmosphere was not. Would probably not go again.

    From the moment you walk up the stairs and view the dining room, to the wonderful hostess who seats you, to the amazing wait-staff you know you are dining in a quality establishment. Our main waiter, Steve, was exceptional and I can't imagine better service. The food is so tasty, artfully presented and it transports you from the everyday experience. The wines & the knowledge of them is the perfect complement. I would highly recommend The Cut and it has become our must-do when we really want to have a special night out.

    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!

    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!

    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!!

    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.

    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.

    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.
