A good steak speaks to the heart, and CUT by Wolfgang Puck is definitely one of the finest steakhouses. Wolfgang Puck’s outpost at Marina Bay Sands is the definition of a modern steakhouse. It is a swanky, up-scale, and posh establishment. The folks (to highlight – Wes Guild, General Manager, and Joshua Brown, Executive Chef) are serious about their steaks, and they do a very good one.
A brief introduction, CUT by Wolfgang Puck Steak restaurant in Singapore is the third location for master chef and restaurateur Wolfgang Puck’s critically acclaimed, award-winning Beverly Hills steakhouse of the same name in the Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons Hotel. Widely acknowledged as one of the most popular restaurants in the United States, CUT has raised the bar within the fine dining industry and the Richard Meier-designed LA location has garnered high praise from prestigious publications including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times (Three Stars), Wall Street Journal and Wine Spectator and was named one of the top three steakhouses in America by Bon Appetit Magazine.

Rib Eye Steak 230g ($310)

We had the Australian Angus – Porterhouse 990g ($175). The Australian Angus Porterhouse was a treat. Slightly charred on the outside, each bite rewarded an explosion of creamy juiciness on the inside (it was medium/medium-rare), it was so good that even after we had finished everything, we were still drooling and raving about it. My advice, come with an empty stomach, and with at least 2 friends, the usual portion for a full grown (Asian) man is 250g, and this is 990g. Do the math, that’s approx. a 4-person portion serving. You are definitely getting your money’s worth here.

The million-dollar question – So did CUT, made the cut? Yes. However like all the other “Celebrity Restaurants”, it isn’t exactly cheap, but if you are after top-notch first class service, and on the hunt for quality steak cooked to perfection, then this is the place for that superb steak experience.
