Vacation supper and we selected cut. Great decision! Our server Jonathan did a great job taking care of us. Ensuring we had the best steak, delicious veggies, espresso, wine, and oysters. The restaurant is worth the extra dollars compared to any other restaurant around. You will remember the amazing taste, service, and ambiance.

I am from Toronto and have eaten in many excellent restaurants. I felt the quality of food and service for the PRICE was not worth it. The service was a bit off but the staff was friendly.

We received a gift certificate for CUT from a family member as a wedding gift. Truly an incredible restaurant, between the vibe, the service and the food. One of the best meals I've ever eaten. The prices are a bit steep (at least for my budget) but they are a reflection of the quality of food you receive.

This was my first "fancy" restaurant experience. I have to say it was quite a wonderful dinner. The steak was definitely amazing, as was the service. Thanks for making my birthday dinner such a pleasant one!

Server was horrible. Once another couple came in that looked as if they had money, he paid all his attention to them. Even stopped mud sentence to us because their food wasn’t right!

Everything about Cut is a feast for the senses. The food is the best in the city for steak options, the side dishes are impeccably prepared to taste, and the desserts options leave you wishing you had room for more.

A bit slow starting off in getting to the drinks and first course, but things flowed nicely from there to and overall very good experience. The Wagyu Striploin, accompaniments, and wine pairing were outstanding. Cut remains a go-to option for high end dining in Halifax.

The food, service and ambience are excellent here. I brought my wife here for her birthday and we had the steak tartare and foie gras to start and they were both excellently done. The foie gras was grilled to absolute perfection but the tartare was perfectly done (I highly recommend it). For our mains I had a 12 oz striploin rare with a baked potato and my wife had the 16 oz boneless ribeye medium-rare with a side of the truffle Yukon gold mash. Both steaks were perfectly done to the correct temperature and the dry aged meat tasted heavenly. The only regret was the baked potato that I found to be too dry for my taste. The server Jonathan was really on point throughout the night. He was kind and courteous and offered excellent recommendations. Overall, I was really pleased with our meal here.

Fantastic experience and excellent food. The servers were very helpful & the right level of interaction for a great evening. My steak was prepared perfectly (I order rare, so it's often overcooked) and the cheese selection was great as a meal finisher.

It was our first experience dining at CUT and found it to be an enjoyable experience. Of special note was the way the entire team worked together to enhance the meal. Staff were friendly and engaging, meal was well presented and flavourful. Some excellent choices on the menu. The music being played was very enjoyable however was a bit loud when we were first seated. Will definitely return.

We were so looking forward to our Silver Wedding Anniversary dinner at Cuts in Halifax. All reviews pointed to an amazing experience for a special occasion.

We are experienced travelers and have dined at numerous steakhouses throughout North America. An outstanding steakhouse is to be appreciated and not easily duplicated and none of the best are inexpensive. That said, we were somewhat disappointed by our experience at Cut, Halifax.

We were greeted and asked if this was a special occasion, which we willingly shared. Complimentary flutes of sparkling wine were presented and appreciated. Our server was knowledgeable regarding the various cuts of beef and asked us if were familiar with dry aged beef which we assured him we were. He left us to our decisions and was respectful regarding timing.

The ambiance was strange, or for that matter totally lacking. Everyone appeared to be “doing their job”, but there was no synergy or emotional connection between servers and customers… there appeared to be some undercurrent of tension.

Our steak was excellent and as ordered, however, the sides were not exceptional. Asparagus with bearnaise sauce was very good, but the Brussels sprouts were nonexistent in an overwhelming barbeque sauce.

The wine list is extensive and bottles are decanted tableside.

Value for the dining experience is really the issue here. Any steakhouse, with high-end prices for each and every item on the menu, should be flawless. The caliber of the food is only one ingredient for a restaurant that advertises a special and unique dining experience. Unfortunately, “Cuts” did not make the cut with us.

Rating: Average and Overpriced.

Great service and delicious steaks. We chose the 14oz boneless USDA ribeye and really enjoyed it. The Caesar salad was prepared tableside and was also delicious. We had the baked potato as a side to our steak and I would not get it again. The service was prompt and polite, and they gave us each a very small loaf of banana bread on the way out that was very delicious. I look forward to the next time I eat here.

Was a fantastic night out for 4. Food was great. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Caesar salad was prepared at the table and one serving is plenty for 4 people as a starter. Our server recomended 5 sides to compliment our steaks (so they didn't look lonely on the plate) and he was bang on. Great restaurant, great service. Will definitely go back.

I took my wife here for her 31st Birthday , It was quiet , candle lit table next to a window overlooking the boardwalk. We had an excellent time and our server was nothing short of courtesy and professional. I am pretty sure I had the best steak I will ever eat in my life at this restaurant.
