Love this venue. Great sound system. The food is not bad either. Service is sometimes slow when it's busy. They have acts from the 60s and 70s and modern stuff too. Saw Dave Chappelle their last year - amazing


Such a great venue! Just saw Wonder Show there - an amazing show with crazy great talent, full of magicians and comedians. You walk into the venue to a big bar with unique decor (there's a huge chandelier structure with guitars hanging from it in the middle!) that eventually leads to the main venue. The worst part about the main show area is that the tables are cramped together, but that isn't even terrible. For the show I went to, you buy your ticket and then have to spend at least $20 in the room on food and drinks (not sure if this is for every show), but that's still a good deal. The food is pretty good - we got fish tacos, mac & cheese, pizza & french fries, and lots of wine! Definitely worth a trip to this place for a cool experience & interesting show.

Is the owner aware of how guests are treated in this establishment? If he was aware, he'd promptly fire most of the staff and management for their insulting attitude if he wants to stay in business... I never had a server curse at me before for wanting to order food! My husband, his friend, and I drove nearly 3 hours to get to The Cutting Room last night (1/16/13) and couldn't have been more disappointed and angry with the service. We arrived at 6:30 and planned to go in and sit down for dinner before the show. This is a little late for us to eat dinner, so we were starving. We were told by the bartenders that we would have to wait until 7 to go in and sit down because they weren't ready yet. OK. 7:00 came and went, as did 7:30 and 8:00. We FINALLY got to go in around 8:30 but by that time the lobby was so packed we couldn't get a table where all three of us could sit together so my husband's friend decided to stand. I couldn't flag a waitress down until about 9:00 when the show had already started. We were the first people there that night and other people were finishing eating at this point and we didn't even have menus yet... We were livid! This is when it really gets good because I stop a waitress (thin, with longer, thick, dark curly hair) and ask her if we were ever going to get any service here. I really didn't think they were going to get us food.. I asked her for menus and she said, "F*ck off! She came back with the manager after we asked for one and then said, "I'm not serving you!" Seriously?! The manager wouldn't take accountability for anything -- he was a real young guy in a suit with dark hair. He ended up bringing us burgers about 45 minutes later. Our friend never got to order, as he was still standing, so we had to split the two meals between the three of us. Can you imagine that? Passing food like peasants so we could eat.. We finished our burgers as the show was ending and people were getting up to leave. Did that whole ordeal allow any of us to even enjoy the music? No. This was probably the worst service experience I ever had in my life and I will NEVER go back. I am posting this review on every site I can find. What a shame that my husband's first time in the city had to end up this way. Yes, the food was good, the beer was tasty and the music great, but the attitude of management/servers was deplorable.
