EXCELLENT CULINARY EXPERIENCE BY THE WATERFRONT

Since we were in Halifax, a fishing port, we decided to eat seafood at the Grill, not steak upstairs. We were not disappointed. We had crab cake and shrimp appetizers and salad, all of which were prepared in a unique way i.e. one could taste the signature of a chef with his own recipes. The... read more

We ate in the lower section of what is two distinctly different culinary offerings . The upper level , with a different menu , is meant to be a higher end restaurant offering . The lower level is meant to be a grill . I had the Shepherd's Pie - it was good - hot & tasty . My wife... More

Cut this from your list! The prices at the steakhouse upstairs were cost prohibitive so we sat downstairs at the grill. Service was ok but the food was terrible. Wagyu beef in the stirfry was coated with breading which ruined it (and defeats the purpose of trying to order a lighter dish). Steak sandwich was a small piece of burnt... More

Well we are loving the east coast vacation but are getting a little "seafooded out" so we wanted good food, nice ambience and not pay for location on the waterfront. Well we are happy to say that going off lower water street and up one street we found the CUT Steakhouse We ordered 2 steaks and on steak sandwich for... More

The service was excellent however, the food was terrible..over cooked beef - undercooked chicken and the sauce was so salty , had to wipe it off. Over priced for the food you get! However... the grill downstairs was delicious two days before..

The food is really good here. The only thing I've ever ordered that I did not like was the onion soup.

Was beyond pleased my experience at this restaurant. Service was fantastic, great ambiance. This place is pricey but worth every penny. Crosshatch potatoes and prime rib are to die for.

If you don't eat here, your life will be the lesser for it. Let's start with the atmosphere and first impressions. We will get to the title soon enough. Great location on Lower Water Front. We were greeted by Jonathan right away and seated immediately. Jonathan got us started and explained he and Holley would be looking after us. Little... More

Late supper, not busy. Good service. A little pricey. Steak with goat cheese was awesome. Not the best place for children's choices. Steak cooked as ordered and tasty.

We are not steak house lovers, often finding that we can do steak equally as well at home. This was our first visit to Cut and the first visit to a proper steak house in some time. The menu had more variety than we expected and included fish and chicken. I had the tuna starter and it was good and... More
