disappointing experience. had heard great things about this restaurant, so made Valentine's Day reservations. upon entering, we were greeted by very loud classic rock music in the bar area, which barely diminished as we entered the dining room. After being seated, waited for several minutes before being greeted by a waiter who never did say his name. Wedge salad was fine, but the steak entrees we both got were so heavily seasoned it was equivalent to eating a salt block. Also the waiter was apparently so busy he never stopped by to ask whether the steaks were cooked to our liking.

Not at all what I was looking for. Rather than a refined eating experience, it felt much more like a bus station - feed them and get them out with as little human contact as possible. I will not be going back.

Excellent food and great portions for restaurant week menu. Our server was really friendly and seemed like he was genuinely happy to serve us! Would definitely recommend.
One note- tables are very large so not great if you're looking for intimacy.

The food was delicious! But for a three course meal, we were there for 3 hours. It wasn't all that crowded on a Monday night, so we were all a bit confused as to the delay. However, the food was amazing--from the bread course (a garlic and cheese base, topped with everything bagel seasoning) to the dessert course. Our favorite dessert was the lovely Cracker Jack Sundae! Everything was really great, but could have been about an hour and a half faster.

Felt like dining in the library of a close friend. Starter roll was a good prelude to a terrific meal. Steaks melted in your mouth. No rushing, but service was a bit slow.

Very nice restaurant, with good steak and seafood options. Good wine list also. Large restaurant with a nice bar. Staff were friendly and helpful although the food was slow arriving and I didn'tget the sauce I asked for (I had eaten my food before it arrived). Having said that good experience. If you want, you can pay a lot for premium cuts but lots of variety. Good wine selection.

The porterhouse was excellent, and the chili lobster (which our server recommended adding on to make a surf & turf) was ridiculously good. Salads were great, bread and wine were delicious... we'll definitely be coming back.

My husband and I went into Manhattan to see a play and I found American Cut on a listing for NYC Restaurant Week. After the show we headed over for dinner. We were told once we arrived that unfortunately the restaurant only participates in Restaurant Week Mon - Fri and we were apologized to immediately. We decided to stay anyway and by no means were we disappointed in our choice! Our waiter was excellent, the food was out of this world and because of the mix up, we were treated to dessert! We will be coming back to celebrate my birthday in July and can’t wait!

I was shocked of how my steak was under cooked, I requested my filet to be medium well and I got medium rare. Took one bite and left it, wasn’t even asked as to why. Disappointing!

Everything was perfect except the service! Although our server was extremely kind, we were seated at 7:05pm and weren’t served dinner until 8:50pm. So that was disappointing and seemed like everyone around us was already done and paying. Wish I had a better experience.

We took advantage of Restaurant Week and had a fantastic 3 course meal for $42++ per head. The food was excellent and a delicious bottle of wine too. We were not at all made to feel inferior for choosing the special menu. In fact, the staff were great and the atmosphere lovely.

I love American Cut. The service is always outstanding and they attempt to go above and beyond when possible. Unfortunately, this night we came, they were out of the majority of their main entrees and some of their appetizers, even though we went to dinner early in the evening.

This is our second time at this restaurant by making reservation via Opentable. Each time, we are pointed to seat the worst table at the entrance while the restaurant was almost empty. It is quite humiliating to seat in such table where our guests experienced cold weather coming from the outer gate. After we complaint about, we changed the table. But during almost half time of our service, we sat there. I do not want to seat at the same table if I go there again. I felt ashamed to my guests about the table. Rest of the experience was ok.

Was great for a business meal, wasn’t too noisy (a common problem with steakhouses), and a touch refined.
The wet aged steak served by tableside was a first as well. Will use again !

My wife and I dined here on New Year's Eve. The atmosphere was classy with a romantic feel. I ordered a prickly pear martini, while my wife tried a cosmo. My drink was a little sour tasting. For dinner we ordered the hotel ceasar, the porterhouse for two, twice baked potato, and wild mushrooms. The hotel ceasar was delicious. The porterhouse was properly cooked (medium rare). It was very good, but not as flavorful as some of the other upscale steakhouses I've dined at. The twice baked potato and wild mushrooms were okay. The service was fairly slow, but since it was New Year's Eve we didn't mind. This is a nice place to go if you're looking for a modern steakhouse with romantic vibes.

Marc Forgione has created a masterpiece in the world of steakhouses. The food and service is always top notch and the meat selections are always incredibly savory and tender. The dry aged Tomahawk chop tends to be a frequent favorite. The beef is pasture raised and finished on a corn feed providing for a rich and full flavor. The steak preparation is also spectacular and highlights and enhances the meat. Also don’t forget about the classic cedar smoked old fashioned which can be prepared table side for the full experience. The staff are knowledgeable and passionate about the food as well as the extensive and well curated wine list.

Appetizers and sides were good. Pastrami ribeye was good for a few bites then was too much. Porterhouse for two had a very small filet side and strip side was chewy (makes me think we were served a t-bone not a porterhouse (ie. cheaper cut)).
