Great dining. The platter for 2 (or 4) was delicious. The meats were of very good quality. Veggies were done right. The portions of everything were more than enough for 2. And their sauces were delicious.

Food was amazing! Service was great! Very attentive staff. We each had an entree and then ordered the sharing platter for 4. There was so much food that we couldn’t finish it and everything tasted amazing! We ordered mocktails not knowing exactly what we wanted and the lovely manager made us some drinks and they were the best we have ever had! Would definitely recommend and would definitely go again!

We had an amazing first experience with First Table at The Cut. The service was very good and the food was delicious. I would order sides with the mains though. I would highly recommend.

The food was great, especially the meat which they cooked it to just the right, the chips they cooked was to really nice and crispy. The most important thing was the service, the servers were top notch, very attentive, polite, professional.
The only downside is the actual view from the restaurant, facing a busy street and an apartment where people were hanging their laundry on their balcony, which doesn't really fit in with the restaurant decor and atmosphere.

We had dinner at The Cut last night.
It definitely beat our expectations. From the time we arrived we were greeted and escorted to our table promptly. The waiter provided us with outstanding service was on point and he was very friendly. The Seafood Chowder went down a treat. Drinks were really nice. The highlight of our night was the sharing platter the waiter convinced us to get it for 2 people and said it was a lot of food we were abit cautious as sometimes it’s the opposite and comes out really small. It was definitely a big meal and we are large eaters. Appreciate his honesty. Will recommend to family and friends. Will be back sooner than you know it

Food was decent, but in my opinion overpriced. Service was nice and prompt, and the environment is also pleasant. We ordered the share platter; the chicken was slightly dry, the lamb was very nice, the steak was decent albeit slightly under Sides weren’t anything to write home about. I also got the mushroom soup, which tasted nice but wish it was slightly thicker, but the fresh bread was delightful.

The food was outstanding, decent portions and very tasty. I had the 600mg ribeye on bone and was outstanding. All of the entrances and mains we had were delicious. Customer service not so good, they weren't friendly and took a while to pick up the dirty plates to continue with dessert but otherwise higly recommend this place.

My partner and I had dinner at The CUT and we really enjoyed it!
The food was lovely and delicious - we shared the osso buco pasta, I had the Te Mana lamb, and my partner had the venision burger. We enjoyed every single bite and the meals came out at a good pace. :)
The service was also lovely. Our waiter was attentive, checked up on us to see how things were going often, and were friendly and warm.
This was our first time at The CUT, but my partner will definitely be coming back in the future.

We went to The CUT Restaurant and Bar as a family to celebrate my son's birthday and our experience was superb! The server was very patient and accommodating. She explained their new menu to us - giving us the option to order individually or as a group. The ambiance was good - quiet enough to talk but not too formal either. The food was delicious and the portions were big - leaving us very full by the end of our meal. Overall, I highly recommend The CUT Restaurant and Bar. Will definitely be back!

Service was attentive without being pushy, easily adapting to it needs. Food was very good, in particular the hangi broth was very tasty and good value for money. Fries were large and crispy, veges were fresh and perfectly cooked. I had a entree and main and my partner just a main, no room for desert. Great experience

This was our first visit to The Cut - going solely on reviews from previous First Table customers. And the restaurant did not disappoint!
The food was excellent - we had risotto for the appetizer, eye fillet and pork belly for mains, with fries and the winter salad for sides. Absolutely delicious.
Attentive, well-informed staff.
We're definitely going back again!

This central city restaurant is part of Rydges Hotel. It is a nice bright and modern-looking restaurant, and we were very impressed by the chef's incorporation of traditional Māori foods on the menu. If you've always wanted to try such delicacies as muttonbird or pāua, along with the more expected Akaroa salmon, mussels and hapuku, here's your opportunity. My harore risotto starter with wild mushroom was very tasty, and the eye fillet steak with a side of delicious crispy thick fries and brussels sprouts with bacon in a cream sauce hit the spot perfectly. I had hoped to try dessert too but found I didn't need it. The gentleman waiting on us was very pleasant and helpful and didn't rush us to order, which was appreciated.

A really quiet atmosphere for dining, restaurant is beautifully orchid-scented when walked in and a beautiful modern interior design.
Bread with olive oil foam- able to taste the mild fruity flavours from the olive oil foam.
Akaroa salmon as entrée- salmon well- cooked, pink on the inside. Brussel sprouts were cooked 2 ways (grilled and dried), crayfish foam paired well with the salmon. Overall, an earthy smoky dish.
Bone-in OP ribeye 600g with Béarnaise sauce- perfectly cooked medium-rare steak, crunchy on the outside while tender and pink inside. Really enjoyed it!!!!
Fries with ketchup and mayonnaise- Hand-cut fries which are crispy outside and soft inside. We really liked the thick creamy smooth mayonnaise that comes with it, not like anything from the bottle :) Highly recommend.
Rata honey flan- crème caramel with lime & honey cracker with crunchy sticky bee pollen. Will recommend it to anyone who is a fan of honey and bee pollen

Excellent service. Very well looked after by the waiter. Ambience and decor was inviting and modern! Seafood chowder was delicious, pork belly was a little dry and the steak came a bit raw. We did ask for it to be done more but the second time it was still raw. However, still a very enjoyable time spent at The Cut and the amazing service made up for it!

Amazing service from all staff especially the front of house female who was working on Monday evening - I'm so sorry I didn't catch your name but you were amazing!

We were treated like we were about to spend $1000 there even though we came straight from work and they knew we were first table.

Food was great from the appetizers to the desert, would highly recommend.

3 hicks from Waihi fine dining at The Cut Restaurant for the girlfriends 40th , who would have thought , geez we were spoilt , the food was so mouth wateringly outstanding ! Started with 1/2 doz Tempura Oysters, Antipasto plate and Pancetta wrapped scallops , in fact the oysters were that good we ordered another 1/2 doz with our mains ! Our fantastic waitress even suggested we devour the oysters before the mains arrived, really appreciated that !!) Speaking of mains - 600gm Savannah Rib Eye -what a beast of a piece of succulent prime meat , the Mixed Grill tasty and generous serves , the lamb cutlets worth the price of admission alone ,and the Pork Spare Ribs ,the meat just fell off the bones , can't wait to get back there , icing on the cake was when the Manager found out it was gfs birthday , she scolded me for not letting them know and promptly produced a cocktail for the gf , what a night !!

Excellent service and food. The food was reasonably priced even without the discount. I had the fish which was coated with a beautiful tempura batter and was served with zucchini flowers and risotto. We definitely want to come back again and try other dishes on the menu.
