“Overall Awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Exploring food in Singapore especially at Marina Bay Sands is just awesome. We visited Cut restaurant, and I must say it was an enjoyable evening. My starter the mussels is enough for 3 persons. It was fresh and to my liking. My main, I ordered a T-Bone steak, it was rather dry and chewy. I had cooked medium rare. Perhaps it wasn't the right meat to order because the rib-eye was out of this world. The service was attentive and what I liked most is the ambience. Overall great dining experience.

“Impeccable service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We had the whole CUT experience, from drinks at the bar to dinner. Service was consistently excellent all throughout. We started with Rough Love (champagne, tanqueray, and plum wine) -- loved the drink and loved the small touches as well (big, crystal clear chunk of ice -- no quick dilution here, and perfectly positioned raspberry as a garnish). They also make a great Old Fashioned (with your choice of whiskey/bourbon).

Dinner was also great. Loved the cheese puffs and parmesan breadsticks. They also had a great range of breads--the pretzel and the olive bread were particularly good that evening. For starters we had the bone marrow flan and the warm asparagus with poached egg, toast and bacon. Bone marrow flan was heavenly (deadly but heavenly!).

We ordered the A5 Wagyu and the USDA ribeye, medium rare. They came out perfectly, and so flavorful you don't need the mustard or salt they serve with it. While the wagyu was great, i still prefer the wagyu at Fat Cow -- but the USDA definitely did not disappoint. Between the wayu and the ribeye, that evening's winner slab was definitely the ribeye. It was REALLY good. For sides we ordered the polenta (great! but you'd need to eat it fast as it gets clumpy and cakey as it gets cold) and the butternut squash with chestnuts. My only regret is that we ordered too much and couldn't finish everything (much as we would have liked to). If i could do it over again i would have just ordered one side and swapped the Wagyu for another USDA ribeye :)

Service was really great -- for the service alone the premium paid was worth it. Attentive without being too intrusive, very friendly and sincere, quick to respond. We ordered a bottle of wine and they decanted it first to let it breathe, before pouring it into the glasses and serving them. We ordered everything to share, and they thoughfully served out individual portions. I had a big bag with me and without being asked they immediately procured a bag hanger. Our table was a bit small and without being asked they added an extension to make room. To top it off, they surprised us with dessert as we were celebrating our anniversary then.

It was a great evening, and I would definitely come back. Kudos to the team at CUT that evening (January 14, 2014) -- we really had a great time.

“Makes the Cut, but Something's Missing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Can't argue with the quality of steaks here - they are of the best category but the entire experience lacks something. It could be the seating, the seemingly desire of the wait staff to rush you through (so they could turn the tables fast enough?) or maybe I was using Morton's as the "standard"? I would go again, Wolfgang Puck's name is a big draw and you can't go wrong entertaining your VIPs there, but for an intimate steak meal with family, Cut would still be my second choice. No prizes for guessing what my first choice will be.

“A premium steakhouse which you will pay a premium for...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Cut is a great experience. The interior decor is nice, dark and moody like a steakhouse should be. The booths are upholstered in a leather several shades too light and you can therefore see many red wine stains, besides that the fit out is great. Walking to the bathroom takes you through a perspex floor to ceiling cellar which is quite impressive. Make sure you check it out.

The food in this restaurant is definitely good. The bone marrow was cooked to perfection and exceeded expectations. The ox tail soup was more of a beef consomme, whilst great, it wasn't amazing. The Australian porterhouse for sharing is a massive serving. I ordered it to experience how well they cook a steak with a bone through it. Both the fillet side and sirloin side were cooked well and whilst didn't have a high level of marbling were a good steak.

The cocktails at this restaurant are extremely good, in fact much better than the rooftop bar at Marina bay sands. Do yourself a favour and have at least one cocktail here.

The wine list here is extensive and expensive. You can spend $150 on a bottle of red or $40,000. There are maybe 3 or 4 options below the $150 mark. Alternatively the wine by the glass is good also.

In summary you will get a very good meal here, you will definitely pay a premium for it though. I think it is 30% more than you would pay in similar restaurants elsewhere.

I almost forgot to mention the 1980's soundtrack playing throughout the evening. Who doesn't like a good 1980's soundtrack?
