My lobster ravioli was frozen, took forever for the check, just an overall poor performance on their end. Shame because the atmosphere is great but I wouldnt recommend anyone buying that Groupon or even worse, pay full amount for frozen ravioli

Music volume was like you were in a club, not a restaurant on a Sunday.
Our server had no tables (us and one other) yet couldn’t appropriately provide service.
Some of the food was cold. Other food was not edible.
It took a very long time for our food to arrive (we are expecting appetizers for about 20 minutes) but everything came at once.
He joked inappropriately about my privacy.
We won’t be back.

We wanted to try somewhere new in our neighborhood. The Shrimp Cocktail was actually warm and watery, and lay on the dish looking like it was on life support , they should have called in a priest to give it the last rites. The steak with as , not magnificent, as it should be for $40ish....... The bourdelaize sauce was spiked with tons of lemon and sat in the dish like a pudding............ Jeez, i eat out often and this place needs a new chef or better food manager.. On a good note, at least they had wine.....

Providence has an abundance of wonderful restaurants. This isn’t one of them. When I booked the reservation for this first time visit, I anticipated a typical high end steak house, based upon the menu and pricing. Instead, we arrived at a “steakhouse” that is located within a “dance” club. The interior design is straight out of “Miami Vice”. The food was mediocre at best. The steaks were all overcooked, as was their “signature” salmon. Sides were equally disappointing. The final insult was the 3% surcharge that was hidden in the check for “non-cash” payments; in other words...for anyone paying with a credit card, which is everyone. My best advice is to make another selection to scratch that “steakhouse” itch. This one will leave you feeling deeply unsatisfied.

We went during restaurant week in January 2019. There was only about 10 other customers besides my party of 7 but the food took much too long to arrive. Appetizers came almost 25 minutes after we ordered. Our entrees, did not get to our table for at least 40 minutes after. Our server was very nice, but not once did he offer an apology for how long the food took to arrive. The food, when it arrived was delicious and hot, but the length of time to wait for our food was unacceptable.

Service and food was subpar - not what you would think from the prices on the menu. The biggest surprise was the "non-cash adj" that was on our credit card receipt. Nowhere on the menu or on the doors leading to the restaurant was there a sign saying we would be charged that if we used a credit card. Poor business practice for a restaurant that considers itself to have a "dining experience second to none." Capital Grille or Flemings would say different.

The place was very nice inside, however the price and food didnt match. Way too much money for a very little bit of food, with very limited menu. We did this for New Years with reservations and too be honest I would never do again or recommend. The quality of the food could have been better including more steak options, better cooked and better prepared.

Our server was pleasant but overall we were disappointed with our meal. Although there was only one table of customers that was finishing up when we arrived and no additional customers, food was not served for over an hour. They did not have everything on their very limited new menu. There was no presentation in their plating. Basically, the warm steak was on a white cold plate without anything else, unlike the photos on their website. The sautéed mushrooms I ordered were definitely canned mushrooms. We ordered cheesecake to go; unfortunately it tasted like it was frozen previously and had a cardboard aftertaste. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this steakhouse to anyone for any occasion.

Overpriced!!! No wonder there were just 2 couples at 7:30pm in the whole restaurant. Steaks came out looking worse than 99 steaks but priced at 4x. The apps were also gross in desperate need of seasoning.

The restaurant isn't in the best neighborhood, and there was only on street parking. But the building itself was very nice, and the decor is high end. We got seated in a nice big wrap around booth, and the server was very friendly and helpful. We were the only ones there, which at 7 on a Thursday night was a little surprising. One other couple came in during our meal, but other than that we had the place to ourselves. We had the bruschetta, which was very good, and we each got the 16oz ribeye, which again, was excellent. Lobster mac & cheese and sauteed mushrooms as sides were also delicious. Everything about the place was very good, and the prices were not cheap, but they were also not as expensive as a Capital Grille or Fleming's.

The restaurant is hidden inside an old building (some might say "run down") that has been made into a nightclub and restaurant. Once inside, you'll be impressed with the decor - reminiscent of art deco with a modern twist. We went on a Sunday night and there was only one other couple in the restaurant, so service was excellent. The food was good, perhaps not great, but you won't regret it. We will definitely be going back.

I am not one to write reviews. But what a fantastic dinner! It was our first time at Prime Cut Steakhouse and we went to dinner with some friends It was delicious and the service was great too! We as a group ordered the risotto balls and calamari. Both were fantastic. For entrees, there were filets, Strip steak and the lobster ravioli. The meat was prepared as we ordered and was flavorful. The lobster ravioli was full of lobster and the pink vodka sauce and was one of the best that I have eaten. It also had shrimp which was an added bonus. For sides we had the truffle fries, lobster mac and asparagus. Again, fantastic! Yes everything is a la carte, but that is to be expected in steak houses. We will definitely be back! Kudos to the Chef and the staff!

Not impressed at all! The actual decor is beautiful, but there was no one to greet us when we walked in. We waited at the door for a few mins there was NO ONE there. A few mins later a waiter walked out and seated us right in front of the door, even though the place was empty. I could see the kitchen from where I was sitting, people going in and out of the restaurant, (possibly employees picking up paychecks) they were chattering. The waiter had a smile on his face but wasn’t inviting, possibly because we came in at 8:45pm. We ordered quickly asked for recommendations, waiter gave us recommendations, ordered appetizer, which was really good. When food came in we were shocked! We got the steak, since we were in a steakhouse. The waiter brings in two plain cuts of steak with NOTHING on the side!!!! I waited to see if sides were coming on a separate plate, but nothing came! One steak was $39 and the other one was $27, ala carte???? I have NEVER, seen something like this before!
My husband ate his steaks which wasn’t cooked as asked, it was chewy and dry! I ordered the filet mengon, of course it was ala carte, which I could NOT eat plain at all! I don’t recommend it at all, I will not be back again!

My partner and I went there for the first time for our Valentine's Day dinner, and were supremely disappointed.

The restaurant is located inside of the fancy club, Mezzo, but it had no street sign indicating the restaurant was inside. Once inside, the interior decoration was bleak and minimal with only black and white tables and chairs. The pale white LED light overhead and the lack of background music whatsoever made it feel less like a restaurant but more like a cramped business conference room. The romantic ambiance at Mezzo with great music and exotic lighting made the contrast even more blatant.

Additionally, we waited for 15 minutes and my partner had to finally get up to get his own drink from the bartender (The waiter was only serving 3 tables!). With the restaurant sparsely seated, it took 30 minutes for our entrees to come out.

The quality of the food was ok, but it was still overpriced for its quality. In the end, the waiter finally brought out the bread, after we finished our entrees! I guess he did this either because he was a terrible waiter or the restaurant was trying to save money.

What a let down.

We were turned off by the decor right away. The lighting was very bright and the room was small and oddly designed. The waiter did not know the protocol for the bottle of wine we ordered. My $47 steak tasted flat and had no seasoning on it. And the staff twice told us about the jazz band that was playing next door. We won’t be back.

The hostess was excellent but after that the experience was awful. I ordered a filet it tasted as if the meat had turned. When I mentioned to waitress she talked to chef who offered me a free dessert, no apology for bad meat. This was a $40 steak which I couldn’t even eat and yet it stayed on the bill. My friends salmon was undercooked and inedible. After the offer of free dessert was declined we never saw waitress again.

Would never go back

all reserved. When we left at 7:15, 1 table had a couple seated there.
Only other table occupied in resturant was 6 noisy ladies on cell phones.

There were 4 of us in our party for my anniversary dinner, and no one else in the restaurant the entire time we were there. The drinks took forever to come out, and we ordered a bottle of wine, and the waitress told me I could pour it myself, with the cork in it still. That was strange. When I went to order, they didn't have 2 dishes that I wanted to have. We received the appetizers ok, and the food came out really quickly after. The waitress asked us to cut into our steaks to see if they were ok, and all of them were over cooked. My in-laws steak was suppose to be rare and it was medium well if not well done. My husband and I , all of our food was cold, like not warm at all to the touch. We first sent back the bernaise sauce as it was cold and hard. When she came back we told her the food was cold, both steaks, potato, everything. She went and got the chef. He asked what could be done to make our meal better, I told him I would like hot food, and it was over cooked. He sad it just came off the grill, it clearly didn't and it was really embarrassing that a restaurant could have a 'chef' on staff that would think serving the food like that was acceptable. I told him if he thinks the food he served is ok, then there isn't much I can say about it. He walked away in a huff. We asked our food to be removed from the bill, and they took everything off except the fries, as those were actually hot, and we had a few. We left and went to Al Forno, which is where we should have started. Save yourself the time and don't go. It should be an indication that the restaurant is empty and I had to our my own wine that we should have left.

Loved the restaurant! Food was great...neighborhood was weird...not a steakhouse looking area. We had a late reservation and were able to park right out front but I can only imagine if it was crowded we'd have to park on the Wendy's or Walmart lot. But...besides all that...ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS restaurant, elegant, charming, romantic....and great food.

We were the only ones in for Mother's Day brunch at 11am. Food was great, service was good . It did seem like it was everyone's first day when we had called prior about menu and parking. Also when I walked in I wasn't exactly sure where to go , but once I walked inside.... beautiful. Loved the decor and it was a great brunch spot. Def a diamond in the rough . Wish there was bread in between ordering and food, other than that the food was great! Steak perfectly cooked, avocado toast out of this world and the crab cakes stuffed with amazing crab.

The ambience for this restaurant was very nice. The food was good but not amazing, especially for the prices listed. The service was very good and the food was served hot. My favorite fish was the baked potato which had a crispy skin and lightly salted. Very flavorful. I don't recommend the Primecut corn. With they're name on this item I was looking forward to something special but it was just corn in a bland cream sauce. The corn did not look fresh either. I would not recommend this restaurant since the prices are very high for the quality and quantity served.
