    First trip to Final Cut. Both wife & I dined on Chef Pix Special. 1-salmon. Onion soup was generous bowl not a cup but it wasn't a show stopper. Croutons never did become even a little bit soft. Salad had raisin bread croutons. Different but not bad. A generous portion. Salmon served with apple slaw was interesting touch. Filet was nice sized, cooked correctly but could have been served au-jus. Both baked potatoes were the size of a Buick. I requested butter and did not have to ask for additional as is usually the case. Dessert was cheesecake, again an ample portion & carrot cake, six layers. Both were packaged for later in the evening. Not quite five stars but close and for the chefs special pricing a decent value for upscale dining.

    The service was excellent, but not as good as the food. This is a great place for romance or group fun. The chef should get a raise as well as the wait staff. I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and she really enjoyed herself. She could not stop raving about the food. Mine dish was very good also, but she wanted to go and give the chef a kiss. Thanks for a memorable dining experience. If we get the chance or are in the area we will be back .

    The meal and service we had at Final Cut Steakhouse was truly amazing. My wife and I had privacy and could easily talk to each other. It was quiet, romantic and yet alive with a warm atmosphere. One would not expect this in a casino restaurant. We both had incredible Filet Mignons, made to perfection as good as any steakhouse we have dined in the Chicago area. The waitress we had was very polite and we felt she cared a great deal about our experience. We consider this to be one of our favorite restaurants, even though it is 45 miles from our home. The winder selection for our tastes was extraordinary.

    I'll be frank. The restaurant is beautiful, and the service was superb. My wife and I ordered two filets, rare and medium-rare. Although the steak quality was great, they were simply overdone. More of a medium-well. I'm not one to complain or cause a disruption to others dining nearby, so I let it go. The wait staff was cordial, and I didn't want to express any concerns to them, they're not responsible for the chef. We've been to the Reserve, and while comparable, the steaks were done properly there. I do thank you for the follow-up inquiry, but the response process is elusive and frustrating.

    Did they ever try to get us out fast. When we sat down with in a few minutes asked if we are ready to order. Not do you have any questions, here is our story, our steaks are....Wanted a slow nice diner for our anniversary but felt rushed to get us done so we could gamble. If you want to be a high end steak house tell me about the menu show me the steaks. This was not the they method they used. They were not proud of what they were serving at all. We frequent high end steak houses and this was not one. Just OK.

    My guests and I were so disappointed in the quality of food at this restaurant. Only 4 other tables filled on Friday night. Our wine and salads were just okay. It took quite a while to get our food. I ordered a medium filet. It was basically well done and dry. Actually, there was only a hint of pink.. I was told it would take 18 minutes to get another. My 2 guests had other steaks, a strip and a ribeye. They did not rave about their steaks. The baked potatoes came with butter and sour cream. Mine was black at one end and certainly not A grade. The bananas foster dessert was bananas sliced over medium grade ice cream. I guess it was Carmel sauce under the ice cream, but it was flavorless. for $228 w/0 tip this was a ripoff.

    Amy was a delight to have as a server. She was very efficient and also very informative on the menu selections. We were celebrating our 48th wedding anniversary and she made a special tray with very cute writing on it showing congratulations on our 48th and she made us each a very nice cupcake with a candle on it. It was a special touch from a very special person. If you go there ask for Amy and we can bet you will have a great dinner and service.

    This was hands down the worst dining experience I have ever had. It took a long time to get anything we ordered and that's when the disappointment started. The food was not edible; canned seafood, frozen shrimp, tasteless Mac and cheese, raw sautéed spinach canned mushrooms and after two try's they could not cook a steak anything other than well done. Our order was incorrect and the "filet" was grey and I struggled to cut it with a steak knife. The waitress suggested that I cut into the middle of my requested medium rare filet when I showed her it was well done; eat only the middle? When we spoke to management we received no apologies and the excuse that most people like them and it was late so maybe the cooks were tired. Really?!!

    This place is overrated!! We showed up and waited to be seated, 3 people walked up to the front and said nothing to us. Then finally the host came and sat us. We thought maybe we were invisible. Then after we were seated our waitress walked by us 4 times not saying a word. We waited 15 minutes before she came to our table, with no apology. The food was over priced!! The chef or cook must have lost his/her taste buds. Very bland

    My reservation was at 3:30. We were greeted, sat down, buffet explained and dined on wonderful food. However in the middle of dinner, our waitress said, they are taking the buffet down? Wow, we were not there even a half hour. The desserts were gone. It was great until they ran us out. That does not sit well with me. My close friend is a critic for the casino / food/beverage industry and said that is unacceptable.

    Saturday evening reservations (5:30) and the restaurant was wide open. Service was slow, however, once it arrived, it was excellent. Pricy, but well worth the cost. More people need to be made aware of their outstanding food. I think the service and ambience of the restaurant would improve.

    My girlfriends and I were looking for someplace to go for a girls' night out, and I remembered hearing about Final Cut. I suggesested the restaurant to my friends so we could then go to the casino. I am so glad I did! My friends and I just loved it! We all plan on returning there in future, both with our husbands, and without! We each ordered different items off the menue, from steak, pork chops, to salmon and whitefish. All were superb! The salads were devine, the cosmos were wonderful and the deserts (cheesecake and bananas foster) were heavenly!! I will definitely have my husband take me back there for dinner much more often. The restaurant is one that is unique in every way with a wonderful staff and the decor from Hollywood.

    We were late getting to Final Cut and they called to help with directions. We had a concert to go to and our waitress Diane was exceptional at making sure we were out on time. The 8 oz. tenderloin was superb as was the Ahi tuna. The house cabernet also got complements. Good food, great service, nice atmosphere...we definitely will return.

    Very good restaurant...both food and ambiance, but our dinner took way too long! This was my second time to eat here, and might be my last. You'd expect a restaurant in a casino to get you in and out in fairly short order, but our dinner lasted almost 2.5 hours...and not because we were taking our time. Our server was very good, but she was apparently covering most of the restaurant...and it too much too long to get our food, which suggests that the kitchen is understaffed too.

    This was our first time here and I might be inclined to go back just for the convenience of the casion, but the experience we had did not really justify the money we spent. The service was very slow - they seemed to be short on help, but never once an apology. The food was good, but I did not think that the prices were justified. Rivers and Four Winds do a much better job with their steak houses.

    We really enjoyed our dining experience at Final Cut. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive...yet not overbearing. The food was very good - with the exception of the steak was a little on the small side- but still cooked to perfection. The atmosphere was romantic and interesting with the Hollywood displays. We will be dining there again and would recommend this restaurant.
