Ordered a salad, dry with oil and vinegar on the side. They brought out a salad with oil and vinegar on the side, but the salad itself was drenched with Vinaigrette. I had to send it back. My wife ordered the Filet, medium rare, it came out VERY rare. I ordered the New York Strip, medium, and it came out medium rare. Not ones to complain, and wary of what would happen if we sent them back to the kitchen (especially after I sent the salad back), we just ate them as is. My baked potato was lukewarm, the butter would hardly melt on it. When the Manager asked how our dinners were, we just said fine. My wife said her side vegetables were very good. Our server, Eric, was excellent. I highly doubt that I will go back.

Never been there and the restaurant is beautiful. May old classic photos of celebrities and so nice and relaxing. But the food was not that wonderful. My carrots were room temp and my husband filet was small for the price. We noticed the couples beside us and their filets were nice and thick but my husband got like the end small
The mashed potatoes were wonderful and the salmon was good just needed more flavor
I also tried to upload the pic of the filet and it said something is going wrong

Our server was really slow, we waited almost 20 minutes for our drinks, then another 15 minutes jur to take our order. Really the food was excellent but the service was horrible and slow. There really was not alot of guests in the place either, so it was just that this place and staff was slow.
Not to mention, that after our dinner was consumed and we finished our drinks it was yet another 20 minutes to get our check and once we gave him our CC it was at least to minutes to get our card back so we could go to our show.
Really disappointing

Service was poor. Lobster was so salty I couldn’t eat it. Filet Mignon tasted like a very cheap cut of smear. $ 155 for two and food was awful.

The danishes served at the beginning of the meal were delicious. Unfortunately brunch was not. My husband ordered the cinnamon roll stack, which was completely raw in the middle. I ordered the Crab Benedict. The crab was not lump crab as described, it was actually a crab cake that was mostly filling, and the English muffin it was served over was severely burnt.

We have dined at the Final Cut in Lawrenceburg and always enjoyed our meals. The Columbus Final Cut was a disappointment. Why have ten sides when only a select few are included with the meal. (white potato versus sweet potato) I am not a fan of gourmet coffee. I had throat cancer and require a lot of fluids. The price of $5 per cup is excessive (no free refills). I have never heard of this at any restaurant.
I have a My Heros card and I don't believe they gave me a discount. The filets were very good but I don't plan on dining there again.

Mike, our waiter, was great. Food very good. There were 4 in our party. Had cheese board, crab cake, salads, French onion soup, salmon, filet, rib eye and a lobster tail. We shared cheesecake and chocolate cake for dessert. Will definitely go again.

Unfortunately my New York strip was full of gristle and was medium rare. Requested medium. Mashed potatoes were too salty to eat. Everything else was very good. Have been eating at Final Cut since 2012 and first time I should have sent my steak back to the kitchen. Didn’t want to embarrass my guest.

Went here after eating at Toledo location prior. Columbus has a more limited menu and the food was not great for the price. Had better steaks at chain restaurants. Baked macaroni had too much garlic. Wait staff was pleasant and nice ambiance but for the money I was disappointed.

My husband and I took his mother to brunch on Sunday. I was pleasantly surprised to see Danishes brought to the table in place of normal bread. Although they were definitely the same ones you buy in bulk at Costco and just heated to make them seem fresh baked. The menu was limited. My mother in law and myself ordered the French toast. It had a good flavor but we could both only eat about half because it was too sweet with the fruit compote and the lemon sauce. My husband had the steak and eggs with potatoes which he said were good, but not quite worth the price. I was shocked to see that my mother in laws cup of coffee, which is usually one of the cheapest things at a restaurant, was $5! Our overall bill was $75 for some pretty basic food. I may try this restaurant again for dinner but will not come back for brunch.

Expensive steak house without a wine list? This is your place! Located in the middle of Hollywood Casino, which for some reason was built in one of the most depressing areas of Central OH. The restaurant has the ambience of a hospital cafeteria.

Servers were good. Nice people. Felt bad for them as they obviously had very little to work with. Food was okay.

This was our second visit. Final Cut is above and beyond in every aspect. Yes, prices are higher than your average place but well worth every penny considering everything you get; ambiance, an exquisite and magnificent meal and impeccable - seemingly personalized - service! Thank you for making our special occasion grand!

My wife and I have made Final Cut our regular date night. It's a little pricey, but we'll worth it...... we'll most of the time. Our experience last night didn't go as well as usual. Appetizers were great (as usual). But, our server was sweating so much that it was dripping off of him, refills were scarce and our steaks just didn't have the flavor that they usually do. Waiter was hard to find and we had to wait a lot. We'll be back, but last night was not their best.

Signed,
Disappointed

Nice experience overall but not sure if it was worth the money.
Ordered the bone in pork chop which was thick and cooked perfectly/great flavor
Gf ordered the filet which was cooked medium rare but didn’t have any flavor.
We make filets at home that taste way better so didn’t meet our expectations on the beef
It was her birthday so they gave her a free piece of cheesecake which was amazing.

I did not realize the brunch menu had only breakfast items. We were more interested in a lunch entree, so we were not thrilled with eating breakfast at 1 p.m. in the afternoon. The atmosphere and service was excellent.
