We sat on the deck over the C&O canal (although the high hedge blocked any view of the canal when seated). The tables were well-spaced and private, perfect for COVID-era dining. After a slow start, the service was very attentive and efficient. Our server knew the menu and shared useful information, including when he directed us to the grilled beets (delivered still cooking on a mini-hibachi) accompanied by a delicious labneh sauce. The chimichurri coated grilled chicken was truly delicious — tender and crisp. The mac and cheese among the best ever served in a restaurant. The spectacular desserts included a cherry baked Alaska and an abundant peach and blackberry crisp served with both sorbet and ice cream. We left concluding that CUT is among our top two or three restaurants in town.

Bone-in NY was one of the best steaks I have ever eaten.....top shelf aged meat cooked perfectly. Pretzel rolls with mustard seed butter a 10. Service spot-on. Drink served and made the right way. Only knock was the potato side dish which was more cheese than potato.

Everyone was friendly, and knowledgeable about the food and wines. Service was impeccable. We ordered a little bit of everything. The meats were delicious, eggplant appetizer melted in our mouths like butter, patatas bravas was out-of-this world (pictured here), crab fried rice, leeks, chocolate soufflé was an experience. I don’t think there is anything on the menu that could disappoint us.

Great food and service (especially the excellent sommelier, Isaac). Music from the bar spilled over into the restaurant and was a bit loud and not necessarily fitting for the restaurant, but it was only a minor demerit in a fabulous dining experience.

Once again, CUT delivers. The food was amazing - the endive salad was on point as usual. My wife loved the new sweetcorn ravioli...amazing. I had 10oz of the Miyazaki Prefecture Wagyu again...cooked to perfection again...pure heaven again. The crab fried rice was great, and my wife's filet was cooked perfectly as well.

We have been to CUT DC many times over the past 6 months, and every time, they delivered a wonderful dining experience - from the staff to the food... It is our favorite restaurant in DC. Pink took care of us again today, and she was great - coursed out the night nicely. We got to meet the sommelier who was great and gave us some good advice and allowed us to try their new rosé. Oh, and the Basque cheesecake was great as usual.

Can't wait to come back again.

Our meal was a mostly great, but not everything. The staff were attentive without being overbearing. The restaurant setting was very pleasant for a romantic anniversary dinner.

The two appetizers were spectacular. The Hamachi (tart and peppery) and Sweet Corn Tortelloni (like sweet pasta popcorn) were exceptionally tasty. The steaks were both good and perfectly cooked, but not a standout for the price. The Chocolate 'Devils' Food' Layered Cake was just right - chocolaty without being overly sweet.

So what was the problem... the Patatas Bravas were actually bad...bad. Overcooked, oily and lacked taste. Ottoman Taverna does a similar dish in which the potatoes are fluffy and do not lose their taste. A bit of feta cheese based topping gives the potatoes a tart flavor.

One bad dish can actually ruin a meal, particularly when its paired with the main course. The potatoes are something that should be a slam dunk. Wish they had been.

Didn’t know what to expect since first time dining at a Wolfgang Puck restaurant. Was gladly surprised at the taste of each dish and drink. Our waiter Juan was very kind and attentive, he entertained our questions and comments. Overall it was a great experience and would definitely recommend dining here, it is definitely worth its weight.

The service was slow and overall in-attentive for a restaurant at this level and in such posh surroundings. It is an interesting spin on steak-house concept with creative preparations and non-steak ingredients.

The steak was fine but not outstanding, as we expected, the trout was lackluster, the soft shell crab was just fine. And the patatas bravas were drowned in cheese. We were disappointed and wont go back. There are far better restautants for the price at Cut. It was OK but not as we expected. My martini was aslo disapointing. The wines were good.

We celebrated our daughters' graduations with dinner at Cut. It was phenomenal. Exceeded our expectations in every way. And it helped that our chef that night was Wolfgang Puck himself. He was gracious in every way. Our waiter was perfect and the ambiance (including the classic rock music quietly playing in the background) was the cherry on top! Can't wait to go back!

WOW! OUTSTANDING. What an amazing restaurant with perfect food and lovely service. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants. Every dish was above and beyond delicious and prepared as a work of art. Sashimi, crudo and raw bar items were so tasty as was the snapper entree and filet mignon. Restaurant ambiance was really beautiful as well. Service was impeccable. A+

Anything from Mr. Puck gets our interest, and CUT in Georgetown lived up to his incredibly high standards. Creative food, relaxed wait staff, hardworking chefs, dim lighting and comfortable seating all add up to a world class restaurant worthy of the most elitist foodie. We loved everything about our dinner here and will most certainly return next time we're in DC.
