Rididulous price for a piece of fish with no sides in a casual restaurant. $44.
Had to flag down wait staff several times. Great otherwise.
We are frequent diners and had not really noticed the impact of inflation until we recently dined at Montlake Cut. It would have been fine if they had just increased the cost of their food, but the cost was increased and the portions were reduced. It started with the salad being reduce to about half the portion from about a month ago. Next the Branzino was something that you would expect on a child's plate. You would think that for $37 with no sides that the fish would at least be a keeper. The salmon special was supposed to be the fish over grits, which I would have thought was a single dish. When I got the bill, the salmon was $43 and there was a separate charge of $5 for the grits. Now I know why the server didn't tell me the cost of the dish, but given his description it appeared to be false advertising. While we could expect that prices could go up, no other restaurant we frequent has resorted to these reduced portion size and ala carte pricing tactics.
Loved the food and service. Think the space is pretty loud but otherwise great!
Great food. Every dish was excellent. Service was great. Food was a littel pricey but well worth it.
Like the small atmosphere. Have to make a reservation.
For sure going again.
Always great service, food and atmosphere! Top of my list always.
Happened upon this place because it was close to our hotel. What a find! Fabulous fish flown in daily. The mussels and ceviche were so fresh! The Seattle themed ambiance was so charming. A delightful experience all around.
We loved Montlake Cut! I could eat my entree, black cod with voodoo sauce, every day of my life. We went for my husband's birthday and had a wonderful time. We had the most personable server--she was delightful, enthusiastic and knowledgeable and we enjoyed talking to her. The baked oysters were incredible and I got a second order. Yum! At the end of dinner, our server brought a birthday rum cake with whipped cream to my husband. It was thoughtful and delicious! I'm looking forward to my next visit!
Great food as always.
Loud! but energetic as they say
Menu much different than last time I went and all good
Wonderful Experience. Great service via Debbie....Jessica, the manager said hello and all staff members were very attentive and friendly, per usual. Excellent shrimp cocktail and Tuna Tartare starters. Flounder and Branzino both superb. Had a great cabernet by the glass, and don't forget the Key Lime Parfait!
Swordfish was overcooked and the cocktail sauce for the oysters was mediocre. There is better seafood for the price!
As good as ever
Nice desserts were provided
As we were celebrating U. S Marine b day
Seems silly, but fir the third time we had to wait more than 30 minutes after our reservation time for a table with no meaningful apology. Instead the host acted as if he was doing us a favor when he finally seated us. The waitress was great and the food was fine, but you’ve got to wonder why they don’t deal with a recurring problem so basic to hospitality.
Excellent food and service! We had raw bar appetizers, entrees, then rum cake for dessert. All were delicious and carefully prepared.
The food here is incredible! So good it's hard to select something different when I go. They are very busy yet the restaurant has a nice ambience.
Always delicious, love the staff. Randy and the other servers are always spot on with their service. A neighborhood gem!
Wedge salad way over priced for what I got. My Halibut was flavorless and overcooked. Wait service and wine was very nice as was the ambience.
The meal was enjoyable but we were not seated timely. I understand this, but as we were waiting well past our reservation time, it appeared there were multiple parties who walked in and were seated ahead of us. This does not make a good first impression for your guests.
It was so loud you could not hear the server. I felt bad for her because we kept making her repeat. There are so many specials it was hard to keep track with the noise. It would be easier if they’d put it up on a specials board or print a specials menu. Food is great and our server was also.
Andrew did a tremendous job of taking care of us.
Everything was great just a little to load for us!
Our dinner was wonderful. We sat outside and our server was so helpful and lovely. Will be back!
They were out of oysters, that is very unusual, maybe a supply Chain issue but President Biden is taking care of that. Look forward to next time
My daughter was in town for the weekend and we both love seafood . We loved everything we tried.
The halibut was overcooked. Not just a little bit.
The food and service is fantastic. Noise level is loud but fun.
Restaurant was out of ceviche. I ordered the fish and chips and I literally got 2 tiny pieces of fish. Left hungry.
We were seated promptly when we arrived on time for our reservation. The staff was friendly and the food was very good. The highlight of my night was the off-menu drink that they are working on naming, which was a very well balanced cocktail made with house-infused tequila.
Very good experience from the drinks to the service to the food. Made for a wonderful date night. We will be back.
Server started out great but quickly appeared distracted with other needs inside and felt very rushed. Examples- poured first glasses of wine from bottle, but never addressed after- we had to get up and pour; walked away in the middle of dessert order- we got one of the 2-3 we intended to order as a result; brought check without clarifying if we were done.. a really good start overshadowed by a poor service experience. Of note, three outside tables appeared to have three separate servers- didn’t make much sense in having multiple folks coming out intermittently rather than someone dedicated to the tables and getting it right.
Our fav neighborhood date night spot!
Service and food was outstanding! We will be back. Thanks everyone
Everything was nice, the only problem was they didn’t have the wine I ordered.
Our visit tomorrow like cut us to celebrate my husband‘s birthday with our two daughters and their husbands… We arrived a little before our reservation time… And was told at the table ahead of us was taking A long time… We were offered a round of drinks… And we were seated approximately 45 minutes later… The manager was very apologetic and even sent over a couple of appetizers… Our meals were delicious as always and our celebration was wonderful… What could’ve been a not so fun evening was turned around by the manager and the staff… Montlake Cut never disappoints…Thanks so much
Great food just so warm in the restaurant it is hard to enjoy
Food was ok but service was very good.
Service was impeccable. Drinks and food were delicious. It is noisy so if you want a quiet romantic atmosphere this is not the right place for it. We had a group dinner so it was great.
Great service and great food. What more to say?
45 minutes late for reservation
This is the best seafood meal I've had outside of Contramar and Pujol in Mexico City. Baked Chilean Seabass was fresh and incredibly tasty with browned butter and stewed tomato. Anchor steam mussels were also noteworthy. Even my wife's burger exceeded expectations and was cooked perfectly. We ate a lot, including drinks and dessert, and got better value out of our selections than a comparable meal at Perla's or Clark's in Austin. Hostess and server took great care of us. Best restaurant I've ever eaten at in Dallas. Highly recommend.
