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.
Awesome restaurant. Food is exceptional and so is the service
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!
Great spot, great food awesome atmosphere!
NYC Restaurant Week
Great service but the medium steaks were a little too well done! Starters, sides and desert all fab !
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.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal and dining experience at American Cut. It was made even more enjoyable by our server, Andre.
We ordered the Wagyushu, T bone steak & filet mignon. Was grilled just right. We were also served the savoury biscuit which waa surprisingly delicious. Great service & ambience !
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.
Great. My son has allergy and our waiter was excellent and very accommodating - suggesting and providing alternatives and substitutes. Brian the GM and the entire wait staff were very welcoming and hospitable.
We had a fantastic dinner.
Comfortable chairs, great service, delicious food. Looking forward to going back in the future.
This place never disappoints. Appetizers, cocktails, sides and steaks were all amazing. Chili lobster is out of this world.
Great ambiance. Had the filet and it was cooked perfectly. Service was attentive - not too hands off and not too interruptive.
