Steakhouses don't get any more luxe than this Beverly Hills affair, created by Wolfgang Puck to cater to the cream of LA high society when in a meaty mood. The steak is wonderful though, if you aren't paying.
Decor is simple and modern. As an enthusiast of mid-century modern design, details such as the Eames chairs were much appreciated. Service was incredible. All staff was attentive and friendly. David Blackmore Ranch Australian Wagyu Filet Mignon is to die for.
Not what we expected - on any level! – For $160 a steak, with everything a la carte, you would expect the steak to be outstanding - but it wasn't!
I wanted to take my wife out for a nice dinner for her birthday. After reading the reviews, I decided on The Cut and made reservations. We were on time and they seated us right away. When we got to our table my wife commented that it looked like an ultra modern 1950's diner. It was very loud and crowded with many tables very close together and not much room. Very unromantic. Our chairs kept getting bumped by people being seated or getting up and we had to duck the waiters serving food, as well as holding our water glasses from tipping over. You could hear everything everyone was saying all around you and some of the things were very private and should not have been said in public, so we did not talk very much. My wife ordered the $160 steak and I ordered the $60 steak. We tried each others and there really was not much difference. They were very good - just not outstanding. We have had better steaks for a lot less money. The sides, desserts, and coffee were very good as well. The service was average with us having to ask several times for more water and coffee. I was surprised to see on the bill an extra charge for bread when we asked for more. Our bill came to $350, but the reason it was so inexpensive was because we did not have drinks, other than coffee and water, and did not have a salad or appetizer. The couple next to us did and they were very shocked when their bill came to over $500.
All in all, it was a pretty expensive meal, really not worth that much money, and the decor, seating, and noisiness of the restaurant, make it a forgettable and disappointing experience. We will not come here again.
OVERRATED – We decided to go here for my husband's 40th, and I will highlight the evening. Arrived and was seated during some sort of alarm/flashing light was going off. I had a slight headache from the strobe lights. Did not get the meat preview/overview, meat was not done properly and had to send back and ate it 10 minutes after everyone else had eaten their food. Double-charged for drinks and when we brought all this to the manager's attention, not really apologetic. For this kind of $, I expect a lot more. Especially because Spago is completely opposite. Will not go back.
DISAPPOINTING overrated and terribly slow service – I was excited to go here after reading a lot of the great reviews.
The food here isn't bad- BUT they are charging outstanding food prices, and the food is a far, far cry from that.
The menu is so expensive- much moreso than the much better Maestros.
Also, we waited over 1 hour for our food.
My friend's steak was supposed to be med well and they did it med rare- when he asked for it to be redone, it came back virtually inedible.
The overpriced dessert was only so-so.
When we asked for more bread, they told us there would be a $6 charge!
Highly entertaining scene at Sidebar – Echoing comments from others, Sidebar is a great spot albeit only once in a while because it is overwhelming to the senses.
On my most recent foray to Sidebar, the staff members were great (i.e. very pleasant, attentive, no attitude), the drinks strong and the appetizers delicious.
As to the people watching - CLASSIC!!! Including several hookers, one porn star, Russian and New Jersey mafia, a transvestite, too many gold-diggers, several Cougars, plenty of the clueless, the bewildered and the surgically-enhanced.
Overpriced Confusing Presentation – If you want to be swept up into the world of over-glamorizing steak, then this place is for you. The room is cold and noisy. The view is of the entry and exit ramp for cars coming and going from the hotel. It's a scene, not relaxing nor is the food worth the price. Try Dan Tana's or the Grill. They always have had good steak and you know what you will get. Also try the chains like Arnie Mortons and Ruth's Chris, the original shrines to a piece of meat.
Great steak – Really enjoyed the flavor of the steak and it was cooked to perfection, would definitely send my friends there.
Never so tender – OMG my steak was so tender it melted in my mouth. Really love this place. It is pricey and has some attitude at the door but all was forgiven once I tasted the food.
Will be back for sure.
Superb Steaks. Devine Service. – This is one of the best restaurants in Los Angeles. If you like steaks, ( and fish), want to see service at its best, and dont mind paying a lot for teh best this is the place for you.
What a disappointment and rude service – Four of us went last night for dinner. The appetizers took 45 minutes to come out and were unimpressive. The waiter was rude when we inquired on how they were coming along after 35 minutes of waiting. The tempura soft shell crab was cold and the kobe sashimi was swimming in an overwhelming sauce. The steaks were horrible. One of the filets came out raw when we ordered it medium and the waiter proceeded to argue with me that maybe I wanted it well done then. The new york strip was a lousy cut from the end that was super thick and narrow. Not the type of steak I would expect to be served at $60 a pop. The sides were nothing special and the mushrooms with shishito peppers were nauseating. All in all a horrible meal but at least the manager was nice enough to say he was going to comp dessert for us and then forgot to take that off the bill as well. The only upside of the meal were the fries which were really good and the sliders were good too.
Great ambience but NOT very good steaks – The ambience was great but I cannot say the same for our steaks. I ordered the Nebraska 35 day aged New York steak and my table mate ordered a American Wagyu Filet. The steaks were dry and charred on top. We both ordered the steaks medium rare and the steaks were anything but. The ends of the steak were medium well and middle was maybe medium. The bar tender offered to get us another steak but we passed. We didn't feel like waiting another 25 mins for our food. The manager of the restaurant was nice and invited us back to try Cut again. I doubt I would go back, MASTROS is my place for steaks.
