“Chic dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Cut is the kind of restaurant that upon entering you feel you are in for something special. Dark, glossy, masculine and adorned byt large photographs of the film and music celebrities that Wolfgang Puck has cooked for - Brad Pitt, Denzel Washington, Helen Mirren, Pink and more. Not the kind of assorted snaps that you might see in long established restaurants. But gallery quality portraits, that also feature on the back of the menus. So that's the optics. Service is abundant and attentive - quite at odds with the general dining out experience in Singapore. Sometimes is borders on a little intrusive, especially when you are trying to converse with your dining companions.

Bread is fresh-baked and delightful. Served twice ahead of the entree, then breadplates are cleared. Entrees are chef-y and generously sized. They range from about $25-$40 (yes that's correct). Now to the steaks - which is the lifeline of this restaurant. They range in age and country of origin - Australia, Japan and USA primarily. The starting price (of just the steak, no sides) is about $90. The most expensive of the steaks is around $250. Sauces are $5 (seems mean not to include the sauce in the price I feel), additions (ie mushrooms, fried egg) and sides (vegetables, polenta, artichokes, chips etc) range from $15 - $22. Water is $18.
Deserts are $18.

Pricing aside for a moment - the quality of this meal is unparallelled. The steaks are supreme. Cooked perfectly as ordered and very large (rib eye and sirloin each from the cheap end of the menu!). The completion/assembly of some dishes is done at the table - the entree marrow dumpling soup and the valrhona chocolate souffle were examples of this).

Often you can pay very large amounts for a chic dining experience and walk await with a half-full belly. At Cut you are guaranteed to be delighted by the food quality and presentation as well as full to bursting if you do a three course meal. And for ours (with just one glass of wine - also from the lower end of the wine list) our three course meal for two people was just shy of $500 SGD. Yes..$250 a head roughly excluding alcohol. So best to head to this restaurant knowing full well you are in for an outstanding dinner and a nose-bleedingly expensive bill at the end of it, especially if you are getting into the wines which I expect could then push the bill nearer to $300-$400 per person! But it doesn't seem to have deterred the punters - on a Wednesday night it was fully booked.

Anyway, despite the cost (and I was prepared for this before I went) I have to say I believe this is without doubt THE best dining experience I have had in Singapore and possible THE best steak I have had anywhere.

“High quality for a high price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Cut is a classy restaurant, it exudes a warm and inviting atmosphere, the waiting staff is well versed and presented. The food quality is at the expected level but was surprised to see the cost of the dishes, 3 course a la carte for 2 people exceeded $350 SGD and also got charged for still water (ie. $18 for a bottle of voss water). I would expect water to be complimentary as at most other surrounding restaurants, the markup on the food should be more than adequate to cover for water for the guests...

“Exquisite dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

When I planned my holiday to Singapore last December, I wanted to visit a special steak restaurant. Having searched in the internet, I found CUT to be a good place to try.

I made reservation through email few days ahead, and they confirmed my reservation almost instantly.

Very friendly and professional service, the waiter explained the food in good details.
For appetizer, I ordered American Blue Crab & Shrimp "Louis", Spicy Tomato Horseradish.
The crab and shrimp are very fresh and juicy, it blends very perfectly with the rich flavour from the sauce.

For the main course, I ordered their specialty, 100% Wagyu Beef From Shiga Prefecture, specifically the Rib Eye Steak. The steak is extraordinarily tender and succulent. Four types of sauces are provided to accompany the steak.

Of course, all the foods came to be very pricey, but it's the place where price never lies.
It's a really wonderful dining experience.
