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.

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.

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.

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

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...
