    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 ambience was very nice & calm yet trendy and cool. The service was fabulous and the food was very good. Every course came like a clock works. 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.

    With the dearth of upscale kosher restuarants in the Wall Street area, particularly after the closing of the short lived Milk Street Cafe, The Reserve Cut is a welcome addition. For lunch they offer a $40 lunch special, the wagyu beef sliders were tasty as was the downtown burger. For an important business lunch I would recommend The Reserve Cut.

    The nicest ambience of any kosher restaurant I have ever been to anywhere, matched by superb, quality food nicely presented. The only (and I mean only) drawback for us is its location, i.e. the financial district. But the food is so good and the surroundings so appealing, that it is worth the subway ride or the drive.

    I live across the street from RC, and with kosher family and clients, I had high hopes. Although my guests were happy, I wasn't. The short rib dumplings and tacos apps were enjoyed, the sushi/sashimi course was ok. My miso cod was mistakenly brought out too early and then brought back. Clearly, it was left for 10-15 minutes. It was inedible - I left most of it on the plate. The waiter offered to wrap it and I quietly told him it was awful (not wanting to make a scene in front of my guests). He showed it to a manager, who didn't care. I can't think of another restaurant (at these prices - making Nobu look like a bargain), who would care so little about a diner's satisfaction. Next time, I'll go to midtown. Bill/tip for 4 almost $500.
