Very impressed overall!
Our waiter was phenomenal.
Look forward to going back.
We had a fantastic experience at American Cut. Phenomenal steaks and great appetizers in a great atmosphere!
We went here for Thanksgiving Dinner and the food was incredible.
The squash ravioli was delicious and the turkey was the best I have ever had. The pre-fixed holiday menu was $85 per person, which for NYC was actually a bit lower priced in comparison to other high end restaurants. The cocktails were pricey at $20 per martini, but the expresso martini was superb.
The only down side that I can think of is that it took a while for each course to come out, but the food was so good when it came that we didn’t mind the wait.
(This review is for Thanksgiving.) Like many New Yorkers, we opted for an $85 prix fixe at American Cut instead of attempting the difficult task of cooking a whole turkey in a tiny kitchen. It was a good decision! The service was outstanding, the food was delicious as usual, and we enjoyed a full 2-hour meal without feeling like they were trying to turn our table. There were many families, some of whom did not dress for the occasion, but the noise level was fairly low. Overall a great experience on Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving dinner for my wife and me was outstanding . Turkey was ample and cooked to perfection as was everything else. Had enough left over to take home. Service and friendliness of the staff was superb .
Gran ambiente y excelente comida
Steak was not cooked right.
Everything was good just overpriced
Food was what I expected for the price (good and expensive), service was on point. Natalie def made the night that much more enjoyable.
A wonderful experience from the moment we walked in the door — and the food and service just got better and better. Do not miss this Midtown gem!
Great meal and great service...our waiter (Brad?) was excellent.
Nice decor. Good bartenders. Nice wait staff. Slow meal prep and mis-cooked order. Relative to the top tier steakhouses in NYC American Cut is a step behind.
Living in Tribeca, I have been to all of Marc Forgione restaurants many times. This is my least favorite. Perhaps a Friday night in midtown is not the time to come here, but the place was dead. We were a big group and the staff was friendly but not attentive. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable and is quiet and romantic, not a people watching or singles scene. The Porterhouse and Filet were both delicious but that would be pathetic if a steak restaurant run by a famous chef, did not make steak well. However, the rest of the menu is uninspired, reminding me of that original steakhouse in Brooklyn that only has one fish option (i don't go there because of that). American Cut had two fish options, salmon and tuna, but the tuna was inedible, with veins running through it. Lastly, I should mention that I had 2.5 Prickly Pear Martinis, which given that I rarely drink, should have made me tipsy. Actually, the whole table was drinking them at $18 pop, and no one was tipsy...the menu claims there is St. Germain vodka, Prosecco sparking wine, Beluga Noble elderflower liquer, pear puree and lemon, but it tasted and made me feel like it was just watered down pear puree. It really pains me to write this bad review, but this restaurant needs work asap.
Beautiful restaurant, professional service, good food, great Crackerjack dessert (best dessert ever).
My birthday Natalie was awesome 😊
Had a great meal at American cut. The Caesar salad and lamb chips were outstanding. My husband had the filet which was good but he agreed that my lamb chops were better. We had the dan’s potatoes which were great too. Unfortunately, we did not have time for desert. Service was outstanding and I loved that they did not rush us. We did have an early reservation as we had theater tickets, but it was interesting to note this is a family friend steakhouse. We felt like we could have brought our daughter along, but it was date night for us.
Joe was our server. Attention to every detail
Always a great meal at American Cut!!!
Great food and service!
Dope, went straight to steak. Came out quick and very well cooked. Quiet easy ambiance.
One of the worst filets ever. Poorly cooked, tough, and way over seasoned. Was embarrassed for my out of town guests
Strip steak and veal chop were fantastic, tender, flavorful and cooked to perfection. Our waiter was great and overall great place to go
Above average food. Great steak and plenty of options. The service was terrific - we really liked our waitress. We’ve been to this place a few times and they never disappoint. If you’re looking for a great steak you can’t go wrong.
This restaurant should be the choice for the foolproof experience. Everything was Tops.
Absolutely nothing went wrong.
Loved this restaurant. Been to most of the steakhouses in midtown. This is special. Beautiful room, excellent service, great wine list. Don’t miss the creative deserts
Nice contemporary steakhouse in a great location, service good, food good, a bit pricey
This restaurant was a surprise for us. It far exceeded our expectations and came through with a wonderful
experience. The steaks were perfect and the sides were better than many other places.
We came here for our anniversary- which we were given complimentary champagne. The food was awesome from the seafood appetizers to the crackerjack sundae dessert! Service was amazing-super attentive & not snobby. Would definitely come back!
Service, especially server Natalie, was the best we have had in years. We had tickets to a show and had to be out by a certain time. She made sure everything was done in a timely manner without us feeling rushed. Not only was the service exceptional, the food was very good also. Thank you!
Food was great and service.
It was our special night out in New York City.
Knew it was going to be pricey
went for restaurant week and was the worst steak i've ever had. the manager took it off the bill which is fair, but his excuse was that each animal is different. that's a terrible excuse for a poorly cooked steak
We are on a tour of various premier steakhouses in NYC as part of the restaurant week. Went to American Cut for dinner and ordered Fillet Mignon as the entree. The meat served was more like rump roast rather than filet and one of the worst steaks I ever had. Not what I expected from a place that touts as a premier steakhouse. All of the members of the party that ordered the steak were unanimous that this was the worst steak we ate during the various restaurants we dines as part of the restaurant week. If they are unable to serve what they published in the menu (lesser cut of beef rather than the Fillet Mignon), they should remove it from their menu so at least they dont lose their reputation. Better yet dont participate in the restaurant week in the future. Bad taste and bad for future business
We live in Alabama and was visiting NYC. We randomly chose American Cut because of previous reviews. What a great decision. Our waiter was fantastic. Very helpful in plate recommendations. The tomahawk chop steak was delicious and cooked to perfection! Enjoyed the ambiance. We will definitely be back!!
While the service, atmosphere, alcohol and space were fantastic, the meat - the reason for going there- was mediocre at best. Too bad.
American Cut was a really special place two years ago when we visited. Great food, great service, and perfect for a quiet and special date. Something has changed. We walked in this time and were greeted by a bar full of 40 "bros" who were there as part of some group. The noise was outrageous. That noise did not cease throughout the night as that entire group was seated right next to us. The rest of the night was spent waiting. For drinks, for bread (the everything biscuits are DELICIOUS), our app, our entrees, and then even a half hour wait for our "free" dessert to make up for the bad service. All in all, the food is as good as it's ever been, but for the price, the service and ambiance just don't warrant going back unless something changes.
When we walked in this evening (7pm reservation), there was a DJ in the bar area and she was playing the music very LOUD. We were seated in the dining area near the opening to the bar and it was very hard to hear. I inquired about finding a table further in. Unfortunately they didn’t have another table for three in the back, but the manager went to the DJ and within a few seconds the loud music was no more... in other words incredibly responsive service. Our server was very attentive as well as the assistant waiters. The food was phenomenal... very good steaks perfectly cooked. For those who have never experienced Marc Forgione’s chili lobster... it alone is worth the visit. The deserts were freshly prepared by the dedicated pastry team. The Cracker Jack sundae will blow you away. It definitely exceeded our expectations on service and food. We’ll definitely be back.
Unfortunately not an ideal choice for Restaurant Week:
- Bread service was great. Flavorful "everything" biscuit
- First course portion was small. Specifically the ravioli....two ravioli in a disproportionate amount of broth. I don't see why those that ordered could not have gotten three or four
- Main course was very late to the point our waiter had to apologize. When the course did arrive, it was missing one plate; five of us were waiting to start eating for another five minutes while our food was staring at us in the face. Portion size for the steak was also smaller than expected
- Dessert was fine with decent sized portions for everyone
Happy to have tried but right now not planning to try again...
For restaurant week only. Normally, it’s better.
Excellent restaurant week dinner. Food & service were really good. Noise level was high. Otherwise, excellent.
