Butcher & Singer
All around excellentThe waiter was PHENOMENAL! He was so attentive, gave real advice on what my family would like best (rather than what would be most expensive), and made great conversation with all of us. We came for my university graduation dinner and couldn't have been more pleased. For four we ordered the Delmonico, the Porterhouse for two, the hash browns, and creamed spinach. The food was more than enough, the steaks were amazingly tender and very very flavorful. Our waiter even kindly gave us a Baked Alaska on the house as a congratulations gift! Overall an amazing dinner with amazing staff.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPricingOur waitress did not explain the pricing if I substitute swordfish instead of Filet Mignon, when I ordered she just said "u can order how ever u want" but I would of felt better if she explained the change in pricing & told that that she would order everything separate.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMawesome place!Amazing food and service!!!! Loved the dimly lit setting, very romantic. Excellect wine choice and the filet was the beat I've ever had!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood NightEverything about this restaurant says "old school steakhouse". The steaks were perfectly cooked, drinks were great, and the service was very good.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMYeah, I love the porterhouse.The food is amazing, service to match.
My wife and I live the twin lobster tails and the dry aged
Porterhouse. We order both every time we go.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful Restaurant...butMy wife and I went here on a Saturday night for our wedding Anniversary. The restaurant is beautiful, dark woods, high ceilings, Sinatra music playing in the background. It is very dark. We got started with vodka martinis and raw oysters. The combination was heavenly. The Butcher salad was great too.
Service was quite simply outstanding yet non obtrusive. We ordered the Porterhouse steak for two, and asked if it could be grilled with peppercorns and served with cognac cream sauce. A few problems here. Instead of large peppercorns coating both sides of the steak, there were medium / fine granules of pepper applied HEAVILY to the steak. The sauce did not taste like the one my wife had tried in France. Everything else - outstanding.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorites in PhillyWent to Butcher and Singer for a graduation dinner. Though we had to wait a half an hour for our reservation, the hostess and then the manager kept us well informed of the reason and made up for it by offering complimentary champagne and dessert. The food was excellent (definitely the best steak in town). The ambiance and the service were great.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite SteakhouseWe have been to B&S, and most of the other Starr restaurants; many times. It was nice that the manager acknowledged that by coming over to the table to introduce himself. At this restaurant's price point the food should be spectacular and the service should be impeccable. We were not disappointed. Our crab, oyster and salad starters were all very good and when the entrees arrived; my NY Strip, daughter's Filet and wife's Halibut were all wonderful and the shared brussels sprouts and stuffed hash browns were fantastic too. This is our favorite place for steak and may be my fovorite restaurant overall, certainly top five. It is expensive, but worth it.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steakhouse.A great space with some of the best food I have tasted in Philadelphia.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMRemarkable experienceIncredible steaks, friendly & attentive wait service, excellent music and ambiance. Butcher & Singer is at the top of my list of dining experiences!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTop class service...good foodThe service was excellent and the food was really good. My Delmonico steak was excellent well done like I like my steaks and still juicy. You MUST try the stuffed hash browns, I have never had anything like that in my life ...it was really good. I made a reservation and asked for a good table because I was celebrating a birthday and I got just that! The staff was so attentive.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHeavenly..Really, if I had to describe the experience, it would be simply stated as "Heavenly." Starting with the the first view as you walk in, the lighting is warm and romantic with shades of red and rich wood. With the wait staff in crisp tuxedos, the patrons dressed beautifully, you instantly feel as if you were stepping back in time. Our waiter Brian was wonderful, helping us to choose our cocktails when we asked him what he recommended and even what to order as he described the menu in such a way it was hard to decide. But it didnt take much to convince me to order the Delmonico - Oscar style and the first bite made me close my eyes in bliss. Our experience was wonderful and needless to say - Delicious! I will be returning soon.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous food & excellent service!I took several friends who were visiting me from out-of-town to Butcher & Singer on Saturday night. The restaurant was very busy when we arrived for our reservation but we were seated immediately and greeted by Brian – our server. I can’t say enough good things about Brian; he was extremely personable, knowledgeable about the menu, and attentive - anticipating our every need and want. Definitely the best service I have had in a while. Just like the service, the food exceeded our expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed our appetizers, steaks, and sides. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious! (The stuffed hash-browns were amazing!) I will definitely return again and again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness GemThis place reminds me of the 21 Club in NYC, only with better food. I have nothing but great things to say. Amazing Oysters!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty, but.....Food was good, on the salty side. Both meat selections (Porterhouse and Pork Chop) were top quality, cooked to perfection, but I was a little disappointed that everything was very salty and had a heavy buttery taste. Our server Brian was amazing, recommended a great wine! Overall, a nice (expensive) experience.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter, Bill made ourOur waiter, Bill made our dining experience 1st class. His explanation of the menu was clear, his recommendations were right on target.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, outstanding foorAs always, outstanding foor and very good service. Somewhat crowded and noisy, but that's OK it 7 PM on a Friday night, it "should" be that way. A bit pricey, but again, I don't mind if I am getting value for what I am paying. And I always do at B&S. Loved it, will be back again and again. The steaks are outstanding!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful night outAmazing food & service!! After casually mentioning that we were there celebrating a birthday, our server brought out our dessert with "Happy Birthday" written on the plate & a lit candle. So thoughtful & unexpected.

Service is superb at both bar and table. Everything served on time and never rushed. I have eaten at most of the Top 100 steakhouses in the country--B & S is Top 10--perhaps, Top 5.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe didn't think that the foodWe didn't think that the food was up to the usual Stephen Starr quality. We expect Starr restaurants to "wow" us with tastes, but Butcher and Singer was just good. The service was outstanding, however, which we always receive at Starr restaurants.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful evening! Wasn'tWonderful evening!

Wonderful food and attentive service.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMust try Philly SteakhouseAnother great Starr restaurant with some great Philly history as well. Service was outstanding. See if you can sit in Tim's station.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMButcher and Singer is a fabulousButcher and Singer is a fabulous place to eat. The food is great and matched by the ambiance. Our server was attentive yet unobtrusive, knowledgeable, and friendly. The menu is fairly standard so if you are looking for something new you won't find it here. If you want a quality meal prepared to perfection than you are in the right place. Butcher and Singer is a must if you haven't yet visited. With so many restaurants to enjoy in Philadelphia, this is one worth repeating before you complete your list.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were seated at the peripheralWe were seated at the peripheral tables that had 2 chairs and one love seat. The love seat was interesting, but I felt that it was a bit low and difficult to get in and out from.
The service was excellent! Our waiter Bill was very well trained and provided excellent service.
I would definitely go back!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMStopped by quickly duringStopped by quickly during Restaurant Week and just HAD to return for the full dining/menu experience - Did not disappoint!
Had a group of six, we were seated on time, everyone raved about pretty much everything - Left full and happy!
Definitely my favorite steakhouse in a city full of them - Great find, and we will definitely be back!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMButcher & Singer is your typicalButcher & Singer is your typical steak house. The porterhouse was delicious and cooked perfectly. It was a tad over seasoned, but did not take away from the overall flavor. The service was fantastic and so were the hand cut fries. The caesar salad was good but not worth $13.50. The bar was very skimpy on the pours. The scotch I had was good, but it's pour size was about the size of a shot. The wine pour was pretty skimpy also considering the price for both these drinks. There are a lot of great steak houses in the city, I would only recommend this place if all the other steak houses don't have seating.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
