    We celebrated a birthday at reserve cut and everything was great... Decor, service, and music. We had apptaziers and steaks; the sushi was great, mushroom soup was excellent. The reserve cut steak was just right. However, the filet mingion was a bit too dry. Overall we had a lovely experience and will def go back!

    Went to Setai many years ago and was impressed with service and wine list. This time the service was very poor and the food mediocre. Stick with the steaks and you'll be fine. They didn't bring first bottle of wine until after they served appetizers. Sommelier didn't really spend enough time with us to make a selection; he just seemed to want to push wines from Israel.

    Service was attentive, however not to detail. Our table requested a few modifications, nothing outrageous, ie. dressing on the side and to leave the olive oil and vinegar on the table, neither were followed. I had been on a lunch meeting with an out of town client so there was a lot of conversation, the wait staff seemed to be rushing us though there were plenty of open tables. Meals were only half eaten if not touched at all and service came to clear the tables.

    Reserve cut is a cut above the rest. It's not you typical restaurant. Their menu is rich and the food is beyond anything your palette is accustomed to. Rich and flavorful steaks and great wine. This place is a winner. Oh, and remember to leave some room on you card. Each person averages about $150 fora meal.

    I was recommended that I go to this restaurant for the food. All I was looking for was a nice place where both her and I could be happy for a bit before I popped the question. We walking in and were very impressed as the place looked great. When our waiter came the mood was almost instantly ruin. He spoke down to us and didn't bother taking the time to answer our questions regarding the menu. He later mentioned that he was very busy, but that doesn't excuse his attitude. He gave off such a sour impression that every time he even walked by my future wife's mood went sour a bit, and she isn't one to do that. I enjoyed the food more then her, maybe because of this, and in the end of the day we both did have a great night.

    Food was good, but not at the prices commanded which was utterly ridiculous. We felt extremely rushed (with a smile). Seemed they wanted us in and out for the next patrons. Beautiful place, but loud. Tables too close together. This will be a one time experience for me. Wine list needs to be expanded.

    My wife and I came to this restaurant for our anniversary dinner. Walking into the restaurant, it is by far the most upscale Kosher NYC restaurant that we've been to in terms of ambience and decor(and we've been to quite a few). We split 3 apps- the short rib tacos, the pot stickers, and the porcini mushroom soup, all of which were delectable and satisfyingly filling. For the main we split the 14 oz center cut rib eye, which was cooked to perfection and honestly was filling enough that we didn't have room for dessert.

    Most overrated and expensive. While the setting and service were fine, the food however, was mediocre. My prime rib, $68 without sides, arrived near raw when ordered 'medium'. After noticing that I received the wrong order, I received a prime rib that was luke warm at best,and parially almost uncooked. Ordering an esspresso macchiato, I looked for the espresso part in my coffee. What a disappointment, so much hype for such mediocre food. Clearly a place to avoid, I had the most unpleasant feeling of having been taken for a ride. Pitiful.

    I wanted a nice restaurant for my wife and I who were celebrating our anniversary. I've been to RC a couple of times before on some business lunches and this would be my first time there for a dinner. I reserved with opentable and requested some roses on the table. Unfortunately, this request was not accommodated. I brought this up to the manager who said they don't do that. My reply was that I would have appreciated a call to let me know and I would have at least made other arrangements. He made good on it though, by comping us with 2 glasses of champagne which was a nice touch. The shredded short rib tacos were delicious but a bit too sweet for my taste. The rest of the food was excellent and the ambiance is top notch. Highly Recommended.

    Beautiful restaurant. Great food and beverage choices, but the restaurant is extremely unorganized! From the moment we checked in..it was so chaotic. We had to flag down the waitress numerous times. Someone other than our waitress took our order and we were not told the specials. We were given the bill without seeing the dessert menu. We had to ask for it and then order after they gave the bill.

The staff kept coming to refill the glasses with water and wine. Bottom line, if you are looking to impress a lady or business colleague, this is a very good place.

    The steak was delicious and expertly cut. Usually I pay about the same for a worse tasting steak and end up leaving 1/4 of it on my plate due to parts of it being to fatty or rare. That was not the case here, the steak at RC was deliciouse, perfectly seared, and all the fatty edges were already cut off. I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys good food and is willing to pay a little more to get it.

    I've been looking for a decent kosher tasting steak house forever, literally.Every time my husband and I go to a one,we are very disappointed.The food tastes like it was made in a microwave.I stumbled upon Reserve Cut by chance and decided to try it out. It's very pretty,but noisy.Majority of diners are orthodox so I felt out of place bec I was one of perhaps three ladies wearing pants and sleeveless top but that was fine bec it's open to all.The food was amazing.Starting from the appetizers(beef sliders and pot stickers which come with tater tots),amazing!!!Then came our steaks.Sooooo juicy and done exactly as requested.Tasted amazing!!!And then the dessert.Amazing!It is pricey so it's a once in a while splurge.Overall,totally recommend!!

    The food was great, but I really came for the service. My brother recommended the place specifically for the service. I was disappointed. The waiter while talking to us and taking our order stopped twice to talk to other staff members without excusing himself. We asked 3 times for ice and didn't get. Our water wasn't refilled until I had to find someone and asked for water. I ordered sushi red dragon ($18 not worth it) when I got my sushi it took 10 minutes I didn't get chop sticks and soy sauce, again I had to flag the waiter and asked for it. I'm not complaining but if you asked I'm saying what I feel. A restaurant that charges these prices and claims to give 5 star service, we expected a little more then we got. The food was delicious.

    All the restaurants that have been in space have been good. It's too bad they don't get enough press (perhaps once the scaffolding is removed?) I went for lunch and had the sliders, tuna salad and the raspberry creme brulee. Everything was delicious. It is probably better in winter since it's kind of dark and there is no outdoor space here. It is a cozy place, even though it's big and the service here is excellent.

    I've been to kosher steak houses and restaurants around the world. By far Reserve Cut has set the new standard. While it is extremely pricey and not for the budget conscious, Reserve Cut is exceptional. My party was seated promptly upon arriving (8:00 PM). We were fawned over by no less than 4 servers the entire night. Although we had 1 main waiter responsible for the table, other servers always came by to make sure everything was just fine. The food was outstanding. Everything cooked perfectly, lots of flavor, simply delectable. The tuna tartar, kirin sushi, beef tacos, rack of lamb and boneless waygu steak were flawless. The atmosphere and decor were spot on. It's an upscale kosher restaurant that doesn't succumb to the stereotypical.
