Honestly one of my favorite restaurants ever. The service great, and the filet minon was outstanding. I would definitely come back again, but be careful because it is very pricey!

Had the valentines day pre fix. Lots of broken shells/sand in the oyster. The chilli lobster was extremely spicy. The dessert for two was horrible. Also requested a corner table Well in advance when I made the reservation and was not given it and there was no heads up when confirming the table.

I decided to take my girl to have a steak at a steakhouse for the first time ever... The experience started well enough. They welcomes us with some Mumms Rose champagne for valentines day. The server was energetic and seemed to really believe in the product. As we tried to order the server got distracted after just ordering the wine and ran off "to put in the wine order" and took roughly 10 minutes to come back. We ordered from the Prix fixe menu and were on our way. The incorrect started came out for me, and they just happened to deliver the only option which was $10 more on the prix fixe menu. They were happy to take it back and give me what i ordered but the extra charge was still on the bill when they delivered it. I had to ask to have it taken off. Her steak was undercooked and not evenly seasoned but, still good. My steak was cooked properly but had so much fat around the outside that it wasn't edible and took some effort to be cut with the steak knife (which they forgot to provide prior to the steaks arriving. I had to ask for them). The whipped potatoes were great. The Brussel Sprouts were bitter, we left half of the plate untouched. The macaron for two was phenomenal and easily the best part of the meal. The wine was nice and the somm was attentive and approachable.

For an almost $400 dinner, with tip, I expected more. I think I will stick to Benjamin's, as I know their steaks would have impressed.

Had a really great time at American Cut
My only complaint was that my son wanted sliders and I felt like the waitress could not be bothered by asking the bar if we could have them in the dining area
But besides that the food, ambiance and quality of service was exceptional

Lots of great steakhouses in NYC so why here? I’ve never - in my life - been so rushed that the dessert was put on the table whilst still eating the main courses. The entire meal was rushed. Horrible experience. I have also never written a review before, given time constraints. That’s just to emphasize my disappointment.

We had another wonderful evening at American Cut. The food is always delicious, the atmosphere lively and energetic and the service, great. To share one thing, I like my water room temperature and the manager walked past throughout our evening ensuring that not only our night was going as we hoped, but my water wasn’t iced cold.

Came here for restaurant week - the food was absolutely amazing as was the service. The filet was one of the most tender I have ever had. The staff were also super friendly and not pushy in trying to get us to buy anything al a carte (like some other places have during restaurant week). Would definitely recommend!

Service was awful. Soup dropped and spoon for one guest wasn’t set. Not coursed out at all and oyster appetizer wasn’t rung in. Still eating soup and salad when steaks started to come out. Saw the staff turn back with them and put on tray and covered for several minutes before we finished and were cleared. Desserts came out and weren’t asked about coffee or tea until almost half way through them. Oysters ended up being comped which was a nice gesture but overall just seemed like we were being brushed off.

Nice experience. The only thing which didn’t have anything to do with restaurant, was the large group next to us were really loud. Couldn’t hear our conversation. Would have been nice to be sat downstairs, which a more subdued ambiance. Unfortunately this was closed the night we dined. Overall great service.

I love the food at American Cut... never have I been disappointed with the food or table service (this is not my first review of this restaurant). I don't go there too often because it is a very expensive place to have dinner, even for Manhattan. But my wife and I go at least twice a year during Restaurant Week (when it is a somewhat better value). What I hope they can figure out is how to manage their (likely many) reservations. We were hoping for one of their quieter tables (admittedly very difficult for them to find - the place is very 'energetic' indeed), so we booked an 8:30 table for two. Upon arrival we were told it would be at least 30 minutes before we could be seated. We were not the only ones being told the same story. They did offer us a glass of 'bubbles' to help compensate for the inconvenience but I would prefer they get their arms around how to manage their reservations. It seems they either are miscalculating how many tables they can accommodate or they are seating walk-ins they should make wait... or text me and let me know they are running 30 minutes late (note we were seated at 9:05 so the 30 minute estimate was a good one). With regard to this review and rating... it's all about the operational issue. Again, the food and table service are always very very good.

I've been to American Cut several times and very much enjoyed the food and the ambience. Today the food was a bit off. The scones/bread were lukewarm and seemed like they were heated from frozen product and the heat had not gone all the way through. I had lamb chops which were good but the jus was a bit salty, one of my guests had the short rib which was just shy of burnt at the edges and very salty. Food was a bit below prior standard. The mac & cheese with mushrooms was great.

Get ready to spend more than you think, 15 years into annual NYC steakhouse night, and this was the most expensive of all the high end NYC steakhouses...

That said, everything was very good. Chili Lobster was excellent. Porterhouse and Tomahawk steals for 2 were a perfect medium rare, although maybe a bit over rested....as they were no longer hot...

Drinks were slow to arrive from the bar, but well made.

Service was good. Spot was lively, good for groups.
