Other than the water (tap) that tasted like it had extra minerals, like rust, in it, the food and service was excellent. Asked for non smoking and was seated as far away from the casino as possible. 2 people, couple of drinks, fillets, and dessert was just under $150. So well within normal for a more upscale steakhouse.

We had a very nice first experience at Center Cut!! Nice place, easy to find, and they were very accommodating. We asked in our reservation notes to be seated in a quiet location, as we normally seem to be in the middle of the restaurant and can’t hear we’ll when trying to speak. We were seated at a nice booth, however, there was a large party on the other side of the room that continued to grow louder and louder!! Our server apooogized for them, and they were having a good time at a casino restaurant...no worries. Then they got even louder, which was unfortunate. The wine sommelier then asked if we’d like to have another table when he brought our wine...which was great!
Food was excellent, cooked perfectly, and timely. Our server, Tammy, was very helpful with suggestions, understanding why we moved, and was nice to chat with a bit. The rest of the staff was friendly and prompt with water and running our food.
Overall, our first trip to Center Cut was a great experience and we look forward to returning very soon with some friends!!

Why drive to Indianapolis when you can find amazing steaks here that would compare with the best. The service was outstanding, the food was delicious and the decor inviting. This was the first time our friends had eaten at the Center Cut and they were very impressed. They also got the filet mignon and said it was delicious. They said they was going to come back again, plus so glad they found such a good place to eat. We have been here several times a year and never disappointed with our dining experience. We would recommend this for your next special occasion.

Great service and a great setting.

Food was just ok though. Hit or miss on what we ordered. Couple things were fantastic (wedge salad with quail egg and the truffle fries) Steak and lobster mac and cheese. Not so much..steak was over cooked (they took care of it quickly though) and the lobster mac and cheese wasn't so great.

Overall, it's good for a casino in Indiana and is by far the best place to eat there.

The food here is excellent—San Francisco quality. I lived in SF for many years. I miss this quality of not just excellently prepared foods but also a menu with many selections very difficult find in Indiana. I wish it was closer to where I live.

Waiter was awesome. Food was not very good. We celebrated my friend's 40th birthday. She ordered a medium rare New York Strip and had to put in a lot of effort to cut it. The saving grace was the mashed potatoes- those were very good. The asparagus was not. Just expect better overall quality for a hundred dollar+ meal for two.

Very good meal. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful with menu questions. I had scallops and a filet while my wife had the chicken breast. We’ve been there 3 times and plan to go as much as we can. If you are interested in going to a very nice restaurant without the traffic and parking issues then go to Indy Grand. You can even do the valet parking and walk just steps into the restaurant without going all the way through the restaurant. Recommend using Open Table to reserve on weekends for sure.

Excellent service and the steaks are fantastic. Know it is located in the Casino so to enter you need to go into the Casino which might not be appropriate for some business dinners. If they were to create an outside direct entrance we would do more business there. (Also the rest rooms are in the Casino.) With that said it is the best place for miles and the food is very good.

Brandy was awesome as usual. We love it here, but they really need to bring back the candy pecans to the wedge salad. Without them the wedge salad is not worth the money. The steak and other sides were perfect.

The food was great like always, but we had a new waiter who was very slow doing his rounds with tables. Had to wait a little longer to get our food and drinks. I think he was also waiting tables in the back. Need to keep him more up front so he can see all his tables for better service.

Absolutely amazing as per usual!! The seasonal menu offers many creative dishes guaranteed to satisfy any "foodie". The appetizer menu in particular this spring is devine- Highly recommend the oysters on the half shell which were served ice cold with fresh cocktail sauce, as well as the goat cheese and crab fondue and the succulent pork belly, which was paired with a pickled red cabbage that offered a floral tone to the dish. The steaks would rival any downtown Indianapolis steakhouse (Red, St Elmo's, Sullivan's) and Wednesday's offer 1/2 price bottles of wine on all bottles under $100. I've never had a bad meal here. If you haven't tried it, you're really missing out.

The food was very good. Our steaks were cooked exactly as we ordered. The baked potato was huge and the second side was very large. We will definitely return but we think the prices are too high.

It was for a birthday-they asked the occasion- but there was no special acknowledgement of the event. Super sized side dishes are wasteful and not very well prepared. . Waitress was very cordial but couldn't seem to wait to get the dishes off the table. Main dishes good, close to casino. Would recommend for main courses and atmosphere but nothing else.

We had a bad experience, and was invited to give the restaurant another try. This time it was just awesome!. For appetizers, I had crab and goat cheese fondue. That was amazing and the potion was huge. Could not finish it, and took half with me as take away. My husband had the scallops that was very big portion as well, and were done perfectly. I gave the lobster pie another try, and this time it really was heavy on the foie gras and big chunks of lobster and cream spice. Again, I took most of it home. My husband had the New York strip, and was done medium-rare like he ordered and added Oscar side with cream and crab, and asparagus. Even he could not finish the meal. We had great lunch the day after with all left over. Was amazing tasty and worth every penny. I am very happy, that I have it another try.

Four of us went to the Center Cut for dinner on a Friday night. The service was excellent, and the ambiance was was equal to any of the national brand steakhouses. Two of us ordered the large filet and both were grilled to perfection. The third member of our foursome ordered the NY strip and it was also grilled to perfection. The fourth member of our group ordered the the salmon and she said it was excellent. We ordered the mashed potatoes, asparagus, mushrooms, and heirloom carrots as sides the portions were generous and flavorful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and look forward to going back soon. I believe the actual cuts of beef were slightly better than what we normally get at Ruth's or Morton's.
