A stunning venue in a stunning location, London’s CUT at 45 Park Lane restaurant presents the European debut of world renowned chef and restaurateur Wolfgang Puck. Set within the glamorous art deco Dorchester Collection hotel 45 Park Lane, CUT at 45 Park Lane restaurant mirrors almost exactly its award winning Beverly Hills counterpart, offering the same mouth watering steak and seafood menu, a similarly well crafted wine list and the same atmosphere of moneyed glamour and laid back sophistication. Surrounded by wood panelling and curtaining, lit by low level lamps and high chandeliers and with curved leather banquettes creating an intimate feel, the dining room is as ideally suited to business as to romance and special occasions. From possibly London’s best steaks to salads, lobster, whole roasted fresh fish, the brand new American afternoon tea 'CUTcakes & Tea' and so much more, Puck has created a menu to steal the heart of every one of CUT at 45 Park Lane’s visitors.

BEST steak I've ever tasted. I had the Wagyu Sirloin and it was out of this world. Set the benchmark with this place.

I went with a party of 2 others in the summer as part of a birthday surprise, and loved the food and service. They been treated the birthday girl to a fruit and dessert plate which was a lovely touch.

I decided to book again for my sisters birthday in December, and specified that it was a birthday surprise in the booking notes. Firstly, we were seated at a table which was next to the door to go to the kitchen. Very annoying. We asked to be moved, and eventually this did happen.
Secondly - when taking our order, the waiter seemed very keen to push us into getting extra truffle with our food. I can only assume the waiters were on commission to sell this, as it was £48 to add 5g of truffle to any dish.
When ordering my steak, the waiter asked if I would like truffle on top. I said no, but said that I’d like to order a side with the steak - which was creamed spinach. The waiter again asked “with truffle?”
I asked if the truffle was included in the spinach, and he replied that it did and tasted very creamy with it. I said “that’s fine”, not realising that he had put through that I would like a £48 truffle topping (on my £10 creamed spinach!)

The same thing happened when he asked my sister about the mash potato. We couldn’t believe it when the bill arrived, with an extra £96 charge due to the truffle topping (that we hadn’t requested) on the sides.
We queried the charge with the waiter at the end, and his response was “the menu clearly states the cost of the truffle topping”. No apology, or offer to take one of the truffle charges off.

Furthermore, even though this was a birthday meal, there was nothing to acknowledge this. Whilst we weren’t expecting a free dessert plate, a happy birthday from our waiter would have been nice.

A real disappointment, especially considering the positive experience we’d had last time. Restaurants like Cut are all about the experience, quality of food and the service that you receive.

Very good food, probably the best steak in London. However be prepared to pay extremely high prices even for London. The Wagyu steak is much higher in price but in all honesty the 'normal' aged beef is just as good.

THE CUT is one of my favourite restaurants in the world, but I must fault it on its music. One is subjected to pop music at distastefully loud levels, even in the early evening! Why on earth does the management reduce the class of this elegant restaurant to street level? I do hope and pray that my voice is heard by management more clearly than my voice is heard by my dinner companions at my every visit to the restaurant. Such a shame.

Had very small selection of steaks which was disappointing. No steaks on the bone. And when I asked if I could have a burger instead it was denied.

Normally this is a special place but the lack of options was very disappointing and the waitress was not very accommodating to offer other Food.

Absolutely amazing experience once again. Been to CUT park lane twice and to many Wolfgang puck restaraunts around the world but this one is by far my favourite. Incredible service and the most delicious food with the finest steaks in London! The sweetcorn ravioli is amazing and Ofcourse the steaks are to die for. Highly recommended for a 5 star dining experience.

OMG. Great steak and some of the best food and wine I have had. I especially recommend any wine on their menu from 2012. BUT it comes with a relatively large price tag. Overall, the bill (a birthday treat for my boyf) came to around £700 which would get you a tasting course with paired wines at most michelin starred restaurants. I was super impressed overall though

The good: The food was mostly excellent. My steak was perfectly cooked and some of the sides and starters although unusual, all worked well together. The service was excellent with extremely attentive staff and a very knowledgeable sommelier.

With regard to the food, the only thing I can fault with the meal were the fries. Clearly undercooked and had a 'sweet' taste to them that should not have been there.

The venue is unfortunately terrible - they need to move this restaurant to another location that does the food justice. It feels like a hotel bar, which is probably what it was designed for. It is blisteringly hot, I did not understand how a modern venue had no air conditioning. The seating was all wrong, some of the tables had armchairs and we felt too close to the adjacent tables. The adjacent 'bar area' (which looks much the same, making me think the restaurant is an after-thought) decided to put a football match on their tv, with the volume on, which a single person was watching cheering his team, ruining the ambiance for everyone else. What were they thinking? We spent a lot of money on this meal and shall not be returning.

CUT is a place I’ll go back to again and again. The food is superb; however, the service lacked during this last experience. They were slow to arrive at the table, provide us our cocktails and provide the dessert menu upon request. We felt forgotten about many times which is not acceptable for a restaurant of this stature. With that said, the food and cocktails never disappoint.

We went to CUT for dinner and we had been looking forward to go here for a while now since we heard so much about the food, especially the steaks. The wait was absolutely worth it. It was by far the best steak I have ever eaten. We also tried the chocolate soufflé for dessert and it was absolutely heavenly! The restaurant is slightly on the expensive side but absolutely worth it. I would highly recommend CUT to anyone looking for a brilliant meal.

Exceptional service, knowledgeable and passionate sommelier, steak and wine was probably the best I have ever had. Worth every pound! What a wonderful evening. The restaurant is a bit on the pricey side but is worth it as the food and service is amazing. Great for special occasions. The total bill came to £350 including £40 service charge. We ordered 2x starters 2x Wagyu steaks, loads of sides and shared a desert. The Austrian Wagyu was amazing.
