    Had the pleasure of having Johnathan as our server he was so knowledgable, respectful, fun and engaging! More people should aspire to be like him at their job. Loved how he engaged with the group and knew his stuff! Would definitely return when in Halifax again.

    This was our first visit to Cut, and it did not disappoint. It is a high-end steak house, with premium dry aged beef from PEI, AB, and Waygu. The food was outstanding, and the sides - which are ordered separately - very generous. A spectacular meal with a very good wine list. We were running late due to traffic, and the host Zoey, was very accommodating holding the table for us... a great reception. Service from the team of Keith, Jonathon, and Caleb - including table side preparation of our Caesar salad - was attentive, professional, and cordial, a perfect balance of attentiveness and space. This is the best service we have had in Halifax. Cut is at a higher price point than many restaurants in the city, but for a wonderful, top-quality steak meal, it was perfect. A lovely evening. We look forward to another visit.

    My favourite place in Downtown Halifax, I cannot rave enough about how fantastic the service was. Fine dining can be overwhelming but the staff are so kind and answer any and all questions without ever condescending. The food is to die for, and it's always so fresh. The price can be a punch to the gut when you think about the economy we are currently living in but to me, it's about the experience and it's definitely worth every penny.

    It had a wonderful time. We were celebrating a Med School graduation and a 25 wedding anniversary. They gave us all a complimentary glass of champagne and when we got dessert they wrote Happy Anniversary on ours in chocolate and Congratulations on my daughter's boyfriend's dessert. Amazing food and service!

    Cut is a nice restaurant with great food. We all had bone in rib eyes and they were lovely. My complaint was that the restaurant was almost empty( 2 tables seated) and a third party showed up that was somewhat loud and they sat the directly next to us. It admittedly put a damper on our conversation which was somewhat disappointing. This is one of the most expensive restaurants in Halifax right now which I am happy to support, but this frustrated me.
    Cut SteakhouseResponded on March 22, 2024
    Hello Andrew, Thank you for your feedback. That was certainly an oversight on our part and for that I apologize. I am happy you enjoyed the rest of your meal though and hope you will choose to dine with us again. Please feel free to contact me at aaron@rcr.ca before you come in next and I will make sure you have a much better experience with us.

    Plenty of food and decently prices for the amount. Left with a full stomach. The service was a bit slow but it was a full restaurant that evening. Mashed potatoes almost looked like glue, not sure if they were over whipped. The steak was well cooked and mushrooms were good. The Brussels sprouts were a bit too saucy.

    Cut is one of my favourite restaurants in Halifax. That being said I wasn't as happy with my Valentines Day experience, immediately upon being seated we were told that the caesar salad would not be served table side and that the only steaks available were boneless steaks. Because the tables were all set for seatings of two the restaurant was very congested and loud it was very difficult to be heard. The flow and vibe of the whole meal was not what I usually experience at CUT the timing and service was not the same. I will be returning just not for Valentines or New Years.

    Steak was worth the price and was fantastic. The service and value for the other food was subpar. - Late in being seated - Two servers had conflicting info. First server forgot what we ordered and had to ask again. Second server was very pushy that we ate the mac & cheese despite mac & cheese, asparagus, scallops and steak all brought to us at the same time. Further comments that it would have been better if we ate it first (why would I eat a steakhouse's mac & cheese before the steak and vegetables?). - Mac & cheese was bland - Bread was hard - Asparagus was ok Overall: when comparing to fine dining like Bar Kizmet, The Cut is more expensive with less quality. Would not recommend.

    As first time guests, they made the experience so welcoming. It could understandably be very overwhelming for newcomers, but they made everything flawless and simplified for us. All of the staff were very pleasant and professional with 10 out of 10 recommend to anybody.

    We thought for a high end restaurant we would be getting a fabulous meal. Ceasar salad was very good, dinner rolls and veggies served before meal were great as well. Potatoes boring and cold, steak was nothing special . Dessert very bland.
