Although the price would make this seem like high quality dining, the food said otherwise. The steak was extremely fatty, the frites and asparagus were cold as was the Bernaise sauce. The desert was mediocre as well. All in all a completely disappointing experience.
Excellent as usual, we love this place great food and excellent staff.
food was very good, flavours were spot on and service was exceptional...overall value, very good and I would recommend to friends
Jonathan was exceptional, he really took the experience from good to great.
Wonderful dining experience as always . We do an annual post Christmas date night and will definitely be continuing our Cut tradition
Very good will always return and recommend clients and friends just found that where I was driving didn’t offer more water and non-alcoholic drink more often
Always a great experience - great food and wonderful atmosphere.
Excellent food and service, but it comes at a premium $$.
Though the price can seem a bit daunting the choices are within reason and my experience is that the top priced steak may not be the best tasting...I loved the Kansas steak, compared to my sons australian waygu...
Michael, Keith and the crew were absolutely fantastic. It’s always a pleasure to dine at Cut.
This is my husband and mines favourite place to go for nicer date night. Whenever we celebrate this is where we go.
Fantastic experience with exemplary service. A must visit steakhouse in Halifax!
Excellent. You made our anniversary special! We will be back again!
Atmosphere very relaxing, service was exceptional, food was tasty and well presented
Went with my husband for our anniversary, which we shared with the staff member who took our coats. Each staff member after that congratulated us on the occasion. Through the whole meal, we were made to feel special and valued. We are planning on making a visit to Cut part of our annual anniversary date.
My wife and I stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott last Friday and had a meal in the CUT Steakhouse in the evening - they share the same building. I had booked ahead online and mentioned on the form it was our wedding anniversary. We arrived and were seated in one of the best tables next to the window overlooking Halifax harbour. We were brought a glass of sparkling wine on the house and the staff congratulated us on our anniversary - clearly they took notice of the short note I had written. We had a starter, main and dessert (decorated specially for us which was a nice surprise) and it all was incredible - exquisite tastes and textures. This is a premium dining experience so the emphasis is on quality; of course there is a cost but if you want to experience some of the best steaks you will ever eat this is it. The staff were incredibly professional and absolutely on the ball with everything, clearly they have been trained to a very high level and it shows. I would highly recommend dining at the CUT, it's a sublime experience.
It was a lovely dinner. The ambiance was perfect. The food was perfectly cooked and service was superb.
Excellent evening. Out to celebrate a special occasion with friends. Service was great. Food was excellent. Staff went over and above for the occasion. Very attentive. The small details made the difference. Definitely will return.
Really enjoyed the meal and wait staff was excellent
Outstanding service. The staff was very knowledgeable and attentive. We were disappointed in the quality of their meat. Considering the location and the treatment by the staff, we would return but not for their steaks.
Excellent service and elegant, quiet, and relaxing ambiance. Salmon tartar was excellent but the tenderloin was mediocre. Overpriced.
Had a great time, we all really enjoyed our food. It was a great way to start the bachelor party!
The Staff were exceptional. Considering all factors I do not think that the high prices are justified.
Amazing food, the staff are so friendly , they do not rush you, they are very knowledgeable on the food & wine. Love the atmosphere
We have visited The Cut as a family for many years now. This is the first time the service was sub par.
We had 3 different servers touch the table and two of them were magnificent. Unfortunately the third was brash and rude to put it mildly.
As a guest, I do not expect to be treated or talked to by a server in a rude and condescending manner. Trying to push our mains on us because "the steaks need to rest" is completely false.
Yes, steaks do need to rest properly granted, but not for 45 minutes. We asked for appetizers and then a break as we were catching up as a family. This was made clear to all 3 servers and 2 respected the request.
As we had made our intentions very clear to all 3 servers, it was extremely disappointing for the third server to try and push his ideal service on us.
Unfortunately, I am not confident in recommending The Cut to others anymore after this service.
We learned about this restaurant in a pamphlet about Halifax restaurant. The description eg "sublime service" and decor suggested that it would be a special experience and a good place to celebrate our anniversary.
It was disappointing at the outset to be lead to a table on the side, after I specifically requested a table in a quiet corner (so I could communicate with my partner). I then saw an empty table for 4 in the corner and we sat down there. That was fortunate, considering that the music volume was too high.
The service was excellent. Staff are well trained to be attentive to the customers every need. We appreciated the snacks and bread in advance of the dinner.
Our steaks were cooked to perfection, although not tenderized as indicated in the advertising. It was surprising to see that side dishes were at an additional cost to the main course of a tenderloin steak. But we shared the sides of baked potato and vegetables.
Given that we were celebrating our anniversary, it would have been a nice touch to receive maybe a free drink or dessert. (the kitchen has written out "Anniversary" on our dessert plate).
Access to the washroom was not convenient with the choice of two flights of stairs or a staff operated elevator.
Finally appreciated, the free banana bread packs on our way out. Maybe, could have been given to us at the end of our meal.
Prices were too high considering some of inconveniences we experienced.
We took our daughter out for her birthday. The cost was astronomical $995 for 6 adults and 2 children. They charged us for cocktails we didn’t have. I tried the USDA 8 oz striploin for $40+ waa kind of tough. We had a better steak last night + wine for $60.
A very enjoyable experience. The service was excellent. The food was well presented & very tasteful.
Agradable, muy Buena carne, muy buen servicio, cada visita a Halifax venimos a cenar aquí en familia
It was a great experience..steak was great and service was excellent!
The waiters and staff are outstanding especially Johnathan his attention to detail is great . The restaurant its self is in a super location . Being from NB staying at the Marriot and having access to such good restaurants is a real treat.
The wait staff were very attentive, knowledgeable and worked very well as a team. They took the time to make both our occasion for dining (FIL's 80th birthday) and our 12 yo son feel special. All our meal choices were delicious (RO Lamb, Striploin & Tenderloins) and it was obvious the food was expertly prepared. We shared sides and had plenty to go round. Our only negative experience was the M'd was somewhat patronizing (perhaps new/uncomfortable in his role?). We're definitely planning to return to CUT.
Excellent, personalized service. Pristine table setting and expedient service. Live music ( piano) would add to the ambiance
Food prices were not reasonable at all 60$ for a steak and no sides? Make your prices more competitive and maybe there would be full seats .... age drying is not that big of a deal
we went to this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. It had a lovely ambience and romantic decor. we were seated early which was great but the restaurant was pretty much empty and they sat us right in the middle of the restaurant. the music was a bit too loud and the table and chairs were awkward so we were too far from each other. the service was good but when we asked the price of our steak she told us a different price than what we were charged. Also, we definitely did not get what we paid for. we ordered the tomahawk steak to share which was supposedly 32 Oz but was far smaller. We had 3 glasses of wine, the steak, 2 sides and a creme brulee. 300.00 bill which would be fine if is was top notch.
Beautiful restaurant in the heart of downtown Halifax. One of the few places which is truly upscale and has exceptional service and ambience. Always a great experience.
Highly recommend requesting Johnathan as your server. It was our first time and he made the experience that much better. Best customer service I have had ever experienced. Very genuine.
Steak was good however my wife's steak was done more than she preferred (medium rare). Not a big issue as we did not complain to our server.
Second time frequenting was this steakhouse. One of The best restaurants I’ve been to and the experience is second To none.
Nice meal, nice service.
High quality food in an ambient environment, what more could you ask for?
I suppose my only disappointment was that desserts didn’t appeal this time.
Oh well. I enjoyed the striploin and my wife loved her shrimp.
