Not a great value.

Dined on April 23, 2016

Overall the food was good quality but price compared to quality wasn't great. Stuffed mushrooms good but not great. Tomahawk Rib-eye was great cut, very tender but sear had a burnt taste. The filet was well cooked and overall a better value. Service was very good and wait staff was knowledgeable.

The food, service, atmosphere is absolutely beyond great!! The steaks are so good, it is crazy! Of course the lobster was superb!! The bread and yum yum butter is also very good. I love the baked potato with all the trimmings. I can't find fault in any minute of my evening. The server was polite, professional and knowledgeable of the menu items and wine list. This is my second time, and I and my family wil definitely go again.

Another Great Night at Final Cut

Dined on February 19, 2016

It's been a month or so since we've been to Final Cut, so I was excited to get back there for a fantastic steak dinner. It was great when staff recognized us and greeted us :) As always, Final Cut had awesome specials and friendly servers. Our food was exactly what we ordered and cooked to perfection. We will be back soon :D

Dined on February 12, 2016

WE had a great server very nice and polite. The only complaint we had was the food was not hot. It was barely warm when we received it. They were not that busy and it did take a while to get the food to the table. The steak was great though, but the lobster was very small and a little tuff.

. This was the first time we had dined at the Final Cut and was pleasantly surprised. We found the food to be top quality, plenty of it and not over priced for what we ordered. The service was outstanding and very prompt. The atmosphere was very relaxing and private. We will definitely be back and will bring friends along with us. Final Cut is a great place for fine dining.

We have been to the casino and the Turn 2 lounge many times. Never thought to try Final Cut before. We will definitely be back. Love the quiet bar area. And our table by the window was perfect with a view the track grandstands. We will try a cozy booth next time!!! Good was AMAZING!! And we have other dishes to try. It felt like we were at a restaurant downtown or at the Plaza. But closer to home. Thank you!!

This was our 2nd visit to Final Cut, and the food and service were excellent, both times! Our server James was very helpful, friendly, and informative! The dessert for our anniversary celebration was awesome! Your only drawback is having to walk through a horribly smoke-filled casino to get to and from the restaurant. I wish you had an outside entrance.

Amazing food! Prices are a little high.

Dined on January 21, 2016

The overall experience and food is amazing. We had the strip steak dinner for 19.99 which is a great special with the loaded baked potato. I would highly recommend this place to family and friends. I would not go to the final cut unless i had coupons and comps to use because the prices for a plate are kinda high. its definitely a special occasion restaurant. Be prepared to spend a minimum of $20 a plate if you are going for the steak.

One of Kansas City's Greatest Steakhouses!

Dined on January 9, 2016

This restaurant was amazing! We came here for my wife's birthday and we were not disappointed. The service was superb and the food was "out of this world." My wife and I both had steak and they were cooked to perfection. It was a MUCH better experience than some of the other well-known steakhouses in Kansas City. While we didn't drink any wine with our meal, they did provide an extensive selection of wines. The desserts were phenomenal and were hard to choose from! I suggest going with the "Chocolate Sphere." I had never seen this dessert before and it was fun and delicious! Thank you, Final Cut, for a fabulous meal and a wonderful experience!

Final Cut Review

Dined on January 8, 2016

During our first visit to the Final Cut steakhouse we decided to "live it up" for our anniversary. I ordered the Wagyu steak and my husband ordered the prime rib dinner. Both were ok but probably not what we expected based on the price tag being charged. The prime rib was chewy and the Wagyu steak was charred too much and slightly burnt. The calamari appetizer was very good as well as the cornbread and honey butter. Overall, the experience was positive however, if we do back we will not be splurging on upgraded meat, as it feels like the dollars being charged are not worth the quality of the meat being served.

Fantastic Kansas City Steakhouse

vip
Dined on January 2, 2016

Final Cut was an excellent dining experience. The menu was broad, but of course you are there for a steak. Their Signature Filet was delicious served with crab & lobster meat. Also added some crab legs to the dish as the ultimate surf & turf. The wine list was very nice and the offered flights in both wine and whiskey. I had to try the Pappy Van Winkle, of which they have four different kinds. Service was excellent and the manager came by several times during the meal to see how we liked it and how we were doing. This steakhouse is going to move to the top of my list when I need a steak.

Good. Maybe not great during holidays.

Dined on December 17, 2015

We go to Final Cut on a regular basis because their food is great & their service is typically great. During this last trip, things were good, but not as great as it normally is. I blame this on large holiday groups. There were several in the restaurant when we arrived and bottomline the regular experience of this dining location suffered because of it. The service was SLOW. The food was okay. For example, our salads were about half the size they normally are, and mine was dry (no dressing). The steaks were not cooked properly. My boyfriend's was burned on the outside and close to rare on the inside, but we weren't about to send them back after the long wait for our food. If this was my first experience with Final Cut, I probably wouldn't be such a fan. And I will think long and hard before deciding to eat here during the holidays again.

Not worth the cost

Dined on November 8, 2015

We wanted a "special dinner" and expected to pay well for it. Unfortunately the best part of our meal was the salads. And I asked for no tomatoes but it had tomatoes. Our steak was okay. I've had better seasoned steak at 54th street. Medium well was charcoaled black on the edges and crispy. The drinks were within reason. The shrimp was chewy and bland. Our server was acceptable but again, I've had the same or better at lesser restaurants. For us, we won't ever return nor we will recommend it.

best steak

Dined on November 6, 2015

This is the 3rd time my wife and I have been to the steakhouse and each time it reminds us that we need to go more often. The steaks are so much better then any we've had it is worth the drive from Topeka. Gus has been our server the last two times and he is awesome. He knows the menu and offers suggestions on what to get. Their wine list is very long. I would suggest going either Wednesdays or Thursday's because select wines are half off and a k.c. strip dinner is $19.99

This restaurant is our favorite steak house in all of the KC Metro- the quality of beef is fantastic- we are very particular with our restaurant selections in general, and every aspect of the meal is top notch.

Toughest steak in town

Dined on October 29, 2015

The steak that I order was the toughest steak I have ever had in a resturant let alone a Steak House. It was cooked medium rare so it wasn't over cooked. It tasted good not great, but it was so tough. Our waitress asked us how our food tasted and I told her OK but it was was pretty tough and all she said was great. Like she wasn't exspecting anything negitive and just went on her way. Other then that she was an excellent server. My wife's steak was cooked medium well, it was a little tough but not even close to mine. I really liked the bread that was brought out before the meal !

Excellent experience all the way around!

Dined on October 25, 2015

We arrived early for our reservation and the hostess took us to a small table for two in the middle of the walkway. We had reserved a booth with the racetrack view. I informed her and she apologized and said that she hadn't noticed, but it was there, and it was totally her fault. She asked that we wait in the bar. After about ten minutes we were seated in a great booth with a nice view. Our server informed us that the hostess said that there would be a complimentary appetizer due to the wait. Very classy! The service, ambiance and food are always top notch at this restaurant. I believe this is one of the finest restaurants in the city. Once inside you forget that it is inside of a casino. I strongly recommend it!
