Final Cut Steakhouse - Hollywood Casino Kansas City Ratings and Reviews
Very disappointed. We do not get out much and I wanted something special to celebrate the publishing of my Wife's new book and more importantly time alone to spend with her to talk etc. Put in a reservation, stating "Date night" believing we would be placed somewhere cozy, possibly a booth etc. We were placed in the aisle next to a window looking at a blank wall. Lot of activity up and down the aisle and very busy and noisy. The experience was not good, had to talk loud to hear each other and repeat ourselves because of the noise and commotion. People across from us were very loud and and obnoxious, un desirable language, a little drunk I believe. Asked for more bread for our salads when they finally arrived, said would be right back with more bread and never showed. Salad with no bread, our fault I guess, we ate what they brought us before our salads arrive. Food was good, Beautiful establishment, just wish there would of been a little more attention paid to what the occasion was. Did ask for another location but seem to fall on deaf ears. Could of been a very good experience if seated in another location.
My daughter and I went on an exquisite dinner date and due to some sort of busy week in KC my first 5 Top 5 star choices were booked.. Settled in Final Cut as my last alternative to make it a special event.
Boy did they come through. The Final cut is now in my top 5 list of 5 star eateries. From the decor to the service to the meal to the atmosphere it was all made to order. Kicked off a wonderful experience for my daughter and I.
I do not make a habit of leaving reviews, I do not have the patience or the time to write one, however I will this time. First let me be honest, there is both good and bad in this review. I must complement where it is due. I was in town for business, and hotel was only a mile away and I was in the mood for a steak. I made reservations and was promptly seated. Was served Portuguese bread with honey butter before and during meal, which was really good by the way. I ordered the 10 oz filet along with a house salad and parmesan steak fries. What can you say about a salad, just a salad but the ranch dressing was really good. The fries were some of best stesk fries I have had. They had parmesan and some truffle oil?, (at least I think that is what waitress said), sprinkled on top. There was a pretty nice sized portion of them as well. Here is where review goes down hill. Ordered steak medium. Steak came out between medium well and almost well done. Politely sent it back, on the second go around steak was sent out medium rare. Third times a charm, right?. After waiting about 10 minites, steak FINALLY came out medium, by this time my business associate was finished eating and waiting on me. However, steak did have a good beefy flavor. And restaurant took care of the bill for the steak, so I only ended up paying for the steak fries and tea. The food was good but for some reason chef must have had a bad day and not on his game. Not the worst experience but not the best either. For a $39 steak, I expect better. Will I recommend, not sure, may have to give it one more try in the future to see if it was a fluke or every dsy occurance.
Great food, with great service and very comfortable setting. Was able to make reservations on a very short notice. Had never eaten there before so didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Will be back to try more of the menu. Thanks for a good visit.
The worst dining experience of my life. We were there over 2 hours. We arrived with a reservation and had to wait 30 minutes. We say at the bar for 15 minutes before we got a drink. The restaurant was mostly empty yet it took forever for us to get our food. I will never be back.
Very disappointing. The steaks were good but the sides were hardly memorable.
The place was empty, so my husband and I had the bar to ourselves prior to dinner. That was nice.
Our wait staff was great. We had a booth that overlooked some sort of concrete patio.
Will not be returning for the food. Maybe for a drink at the bar.
While the steak was delicious, our service was horrendous. We had a reservation and still waited 10 minutes post reservation time to be seated in a restaurant that was only partially full. Our drink order took 30 minutes to receive (after asking about it twice), despite other tables being seated after us receiving timely service. The excuse was that the bar was “slammed”. We had clear view of the bar while waiting to be seated, and it was anything but slammed. The waitress simply did not place our orders timely. By the time we received our food, it had been sitting under the warmer so long the plates were burning hot and the steak fries very unfresh. I expect much higher quality service when dining at an expensive restaurant. Steak was about the only pleasant part of the experience. We will not be back.
The restaurant is fine but it tries to be more than what it is. The prices are overinflated to make it seem the restaurant has something special to offer, which it doesn't.
The two steak dinners we ordered were very good, the one sea bass dinner was very salty.
The service was mediocre except for the host.
The drinks are overpriced just to make certain that the casino doesn't give too much away with the comps. Overly high priced meal + average service + high priced drinks = a feeling that the casino wants to get all your money:)
We’ve always had a great experience here but this time the food was disappointing. The Caesar salad was wilted and had to be sent back. The lobster had no taste and was the consistency of rubber so I couldn’t eat it. Steak was wonderful. Entrees are expensive so the meals need to be perfectly presented. I don’t recommend you eat here unless your meals are comped by the casino.
This was our first time here because it is very expensive. I saw wine for $300 a bottle. Anyway We had comps so it covered everything but it was the 24.95 price for a kc strip so I figured 50 for dinner which was covered since I had 90 in comps. Only extras gotten was shrimp coctail and he got asparagus with his meal. Thank God I had 90 in comps because bill was 86. It was an experience but next time I'll wait till Sun night when I get a steak for 20 in Marquis cafe.
I've been to Final Cut several times before and always enjoyed the experience. The last time was very different. Service was less than attentive - it was absent. When they showed up, they were also absent minded. They do not know the difference between a medium steak and well done. Their idea of surf and turf is drowning a steak in sauces. On the bright side, they have a good wine list and it is still the best place to eat at the casino, but not worth going unless you intend to gamble.
We enjoyed our food, and while our server was attentive and helpful, we felt like our conversation was interrupted several times. She did many extra trips to our table to check on us, and we wanted to be left alone a lot more.
Also, we weren't made aware of the daily special tableside, and had we been told, we would've ordered that instead.
It was a quiet Friday night in the restaurant, but our food was absolutely outstanding. My husband had a steak and I had the seafood fettuccine. The waitress was attentive and polite. Overall, a fantastic experience. I would definitely return for a similar occasion.
We have dined at the Final Cut on numerous occasions and have always found the food, service and atmosphere outstanding. A real hidden gem. The strip special on Wednesday and Thursday evenings along with 1/2 price on select wines is a real bargin. I would recommend it to anyone.
You have to like cigarette smoke and you have to like it a lot. To get to the restaurant you have to walk through the very poorly vented casino. Then you get into the restaurant which smells of residual smoke. For a non-smoker it is intolerable.
We have eaten there several times. Food and service is always first rate so it if you are a smoker, bob appetite!
