We were treating my 88 year old mother to a special meal and special it was! The staff were particularly caring of her with great chat and laughter at our table. The ambience was warmer than I was expecting, we couldn't fault the food and I have been reminiscing all day over a lovely glass of gewurztraminer, so seldom offered at other restaurants. Would definitely go again.

The CUT deserves more than a 10 rating. Stunning restaurant, professional and friendly wait staff, delicious and flavourful food. So many meals to recommend. Tops of the night: Hupuka and manuka honey flan, seriously I've never tasted a dessert as decadent as that. Thank you CUT for an amazing dining experience.

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 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

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.

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!

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

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 !!

Went for my birthday and they didn't have what I wanted, got a free drink. Place is lovely, staff even more so. Fantastic start to a birthday evening. Highly recommend, especially the lamb.

Having been to The Cut before (under a friend's First Table booking) I decided I wanted to go back here for a specific meal on my birthday. I was so excited I even called to see if I could go a little earlier than the booking, which the restaurant was willing to accommodate.

Got to say the venue is nice, welcoming, spacious and tables set up well. We arrived, were welcomed and seated, given menus and water. Shortly after, ordered a drink and exactly what I wanted off the menu.

Unfortunately, after receiving our drink and taking two sips, the waiter returned to advise the kitchen was out of what I had ordered. I was pretty devastated, it was my birthday and I had my heart set, so decided to let the booking fee go and go elsewhere to eat.

However, after staying to enjoy our drink, when we went to pay we were advised it was on the house! :-D

Having eaten here before, I can attest that the food is gorgeous - get the lamb, or the sharing platter. The staff are accommodating, friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend and will go back again!

The food was very good. We ordered the sharing tray and the meat was all very well cooked, the lamb in particular was stunning, so soft and tasty. The service did not get off to the best start with no drinks menu brought to our table. Considering having drinks is part of the first table deal I thought that was quite poor. I had to ask for it. The service improved through the evening, especially when we started praising the food but would have been nice at that level from the start. They did not have the wine we selected from the menu. But the alternative was nice. The shiraz gin I had was very nice but at $17 a glass, very pricey. This said we did enjoy our evening and it will stay on a list of restaurants to go to.

Starter: Beet & Carrot salad -fantastic
Main: shared platter for two the lamb, chicken, beef, pork & sausages were perfectly cooked (more food than two could eat) & beautifully presented.
Dessert: spot on & not sickly sweet.

Extremely large entrance on the ground floor of Rydges Hotel, Federal Street, to the restaurant found it a wee bit on the cold side.
Otherwise recommended, we will dine here again.

Had a great evening here before a concert. Entrees and main sharing platter were generous and delicious. Platter was recommended for two but so much on it that two of us still couldn't quite finish it.

Highlight was asking the maitre' d for a wine recommendation and doing an impromptu wine tasting. Excellent service.

The Cut provides a great buffet breakfast with everything you expect and a bit more, like a chocolate fountain, self-made pancakes, a wide selection of home-made smoothies etc. Its a nice environment with friendly service and represents great value for the quality of the offering.

We chose seafood chowder for entrees. Not good. Sadly lacking in seafood and very runny. Waiter promptly replaced with new chowder which was acceptable but still lacking flavour. Moved on to mains of eye fillet and sirloin steaks which were cooked nicely. Salmon fillet rather dry and mashed potato barely warm.

I recommend this restaurant and would go back again.

The decor is clean and warm, it's very inviting and almost homely. Lighting isn't too bright or dim, and noise isn't a problem as the restaurant isn't an echo chamber. It's good for a quiet conversation over dinner. The seating is very comfortable as is the overall ambiance of the room.

The menu seems understated but the food is very good and speaks for itself. No disappointments whatsoever. The cuts of meat here are better than your average steak house. I don't know what they did to the pork cheek but I'd go back just for that... and the yams.

I have to mention that the bar staff know what they're doing too. It's nice to see decent non-alcohol options that aren't carbonated on the menu (along with a good wine list).
