Very well presented both the decor and food. We chose individual entrees, a shared platter and shared dessert. Everything was prepared well and the platter meat selection was perfectly cooked. Waiting staff gave just the right level of attention. All in all, an excellent experience.

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.

It is a restaurant under a hotel so very good environment. Good service. They told us we can take as long time as we want no time limit at all. Delicious food. Strongly recommend the Seafood Chowder, best I have had. We also tried the Mixed Grill, tasty. And best sauce for Mixed Leaves salad I have had. Too full to try dessert. Definitely will go back later to try more dishes.Great great value.

I went with first table (50% discount on the food bill) voucher which I bought for $10. I was welcomed by this lovely and friendly staff and she served us very well throughout the meal. The ambience of the restaurant is very cosy and modern

I was advised that there was kobe beef steak available on special so I ordered it instead of Wagyu steak. They provide you bread and truffle foam to start the meal with for free. The truffle foam was really good. I could taste strong truffle aroma and the bread was very buttery and soft too. I actually wanted to order some more.

My steak was cooked to perfection. I ordered medium rare but I asked it to be more towards to rare side. They cooked it just perfect. It was A9 grade Kobe beef so it wasn't very buttery like a quality Kobe beef but it was very tender and juicy I enjoyed it. The mustard sauce and their red wine jus is very good too. Roasted root vegetables were absolutely cooked perfect and so good. I loved how there was a variety of different kinds of root vegetables on my plate.

I tasted my friend's Wagyu beef burger and it was really good too. It had beetroot, fried egg, pickles, patty, caramelised onions and so much more! Everything in the burger was delicious. The patty was really juicy too.

We also ordered mashed potato on side and we truly loved it. The portion size of our main meals was quite big so we were so full but we managed to finish the mashed potato because it was so creamy and scrumptious.

To be honest, I thought we would be served with food of less quality because we were using First Table but we were served with very good food and service and I enjoyed my dinner at this restaurant.

I would definitely come back again to try their other menu too!

Most amazing service. Friendly and welcoming. We never had to ask for our water to be refilled as they were constantly on it and the food was absolutely delicious. Our starters came out and they looked as if they were a main. Great portion sizes!
