Steakhouse
American Cut Steakhouse Midtown pays homage to the original New York dining experience – the steakhouse – by capturing the nostalgic charm of yesteryear and adapting it to today’s modern social lifestyle. Chef Marc Forgione’s menu alludes to this notion, offering signatures such as the Chili Lobster; the “OG” 1924 Hotel Caesar; and the 42 oz. Tomahawk Rib-Eye, in addition to several new dishes such as a show-stopping 52 oz. Porterhouse complete with flaming bone marrow butter prepared tableside.

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!!

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...

I truly enjoyed my experience. I happened t be dining alone and was treated very graciously, arriving a few moments pair to my reservation time I was seated immediately at a lovely table. My waiter was prompt, gracious and made helpful suggestions. At one point during the meal the host stopped by my table and asked if everything was to my satisfaction. It was a very pleasant way to end a very stressful week.

Do not participate in restaurant week if the food is not commensurate with the restaurant regular menu. The starter was mediocre and the steaks were well below average. Based on our meal I would never return as there are too many far superior steakhouses in New York.

Came for resturant week - nice to see the menu was spruced up and changed for the season. The food does come out a little fast as I'm sure they want to flip the RW people quick. Food was on point as always - get service and cocktails!

I’ve been to American Cut before, and would give it 5 stars for those experiences — the food (especially the Filet) has always been great. However, I went for restaurant week this past week and the food was disappointing. Not bad, but unremarkable, especially the appetizer and dessert. If you’re going for Restaurant Week, by all means get the Filet. But overall I would recommend going some other time and just ordering off the normal menu. On a positive note, the service was outstanding, and they have great HH specials at the bar until 7pm.

Date night - and you’re looking for something elegant and delicious - but more fun than staid. This is it.

This is why you pay the big bucks to enjoy a night out on the town. Your waiter is more like a consigliere, as Peter orchestrates your meal to perfection, ensuring every dish arrives on time, and all of the little things (the right utensils, clean sharing plates, water refills, etc.) are effortlessly coordinated. Each dish will be better than you expected, even exciting. You’ll pay market price for the chili lobster and think - “Hey, that was worth it!” You’ll marvel at the creative side dishes with your steak, and notice that they actually tried to provide something other than the old tired classics. As energetic and amazingly diverse music plays in the background, you’ll feel GOOD about dropping serious coin in a beautiful environment. And, if you order from the well cultivated cocktail menu, you’ll think, as I did, “Wow / this is truly original!”

At the end of the day, you’re not going to American Cut to cut corners. You’re going for an experience to remember. And from the service to the food to the beverages to the atmosphere, you’ll leave feeling that you finally got exactly what you paid for. I’m a fan for life.

We were excited to try Marc Forgione's restaurant for the first time and can honestly say that the experience lived up to our expectations.

We liked the modern decor and chill atmosphere. The staff was helpful and friendly when we had questions about the menu.

The meal itself was excellent starting with a salad appetizer that my husband and I split. There were many different flavors and textures which is pleasing to the palate.

For our entrees we ordered the 8oz filet mignon which was cooked perfectly medium rare. The seasoning was spot-on and had a delicious crust on the outside. I ordered bleu cheese on mine and my husband ordered a side of bernaise sauce which we were actually able to share as there was a lot.

We also split a side of the Sunchoke Spinach which had big globs of fontina cheese in it that just melted as you mixed it up. Absolutely superb.

American Cut is now definitely in my top 5 steakhouses that I plan on returning to.
