Steak
Butcher & Singer, in the amazing historic location at 1500 Walnut, is an intimate and sophisticated dining experience in a relaxed clubhouse setting. We brought back the true classics from perfect Manhattans and Sidecars to dry aged, hand cut steaks and chops, and freshly caught fish. Timeless and fun for all in the continued age of the American chophouse.

Our dinner was delicious. My B&S salad was good. I didnt care for the 1” chunks of celery. I had a beautifully prepared Bronzino. The Kumomoto oysters were enjoyed by my husband. Two of our guests enjoyed the filet. Delicious creme brulee!
Love this restaurant.

My daughter just loves all of the Starr Restaurants, so she's got a checklist of the ones we haven't been to yet. This was on the list, so we tried it and it did not disappoint. Everything was incredible.

I went there with my wife on a Saturday night. The service was excellent all night. The waiter was incredible. Great, fast service with great recommendations.
Appetizers and main entrees came fast. Cooked to perfection.
Desserts were over the top. Definitely going back.

We couldn’t have had a better experience! Food was completely on point. We had the Fried Calamari which was done with sweet peppers.

The we split a wedge salad. They typically serve it with a housemade Russian dressing, but we opted for traditional blue cheese.

Our entree was the Porterhouse for two. Cooked perfectly and nicely seasoned. We also had the Singer hash browns and creamed spinach. The hash browns are a must order!

We were too full for dessert (Didn’t even finish dinner) but the server sent over a little bowl of ice cream with a candle and Happy Anniversary flag on it.

One thing we noticed, while having a drink at the bar before dinner (we were early) the bartender was hand stuffing the blue cheese olives for martinis. Nice touch.

We will be back!

We eat out a lot and Butcher and Singer is our favorite steak house! You feel like you have stepped back in time when you walk in the door. The decor is stunning. Their food is always amazing. This visit we had bone in filet mignon that just melted in your mouth and stuffed hashbrowns that were just delicious. But what really makes the experience is the service and we thought our waiter Brian was excellent!

Took my husband here for his 50th Birthday. The service and food were excellent. The inside is beautiful, but the restaurant itself is very noisy and echoey. It was great for a birthday dinner, but lacking the quiet and romantic atmosphere for intimate conversation. We both enjoyed our entree, and dessert. We ordered the stuffed hash brown because there were so many “must try” reviews, but neither of us were impressed. The key lime pie was delectable! If you are up for an expensive evening with great food, this would be a fun place. If you are looking for quiet romance, go elsewhere.

My specialty cocktail was overpriced and weak. Our steak was thick, juicy, well seasoned and generous more than enough for two to share with leftovers the next day. Ceasar Salad was nothing special and big enough to share. The biscuit was more like a pastry and was very good. The serving of hash browned potatoes was huge, but not anything special. Cheesecake was sub-standard. When ordering, service was excellent, but then fell off as the evening progressed.

Phenomenal food and service. Our waiter was great and knew the wine selection really well. He was able to suggest a fantastic wine to pair with the food, and all of the food was amazing. The meal was the best I've had in a long time. They had a special truffle butter that was phenomenal that night. I highly recommend this place for anyone who enjoys food and great ambiance.

Food and service were excellent. The restaurant is a little dark making it hard to read the menu especially in the bar area. We also couldn’t be seated until the entire party arrived and we were awkwardly standing in the way at the front of the restaurant

This is the second time my wife and I have been to Butcher & Singer and both times have been amazing. We went during Center City Restaurant Week this time and the prix fixe menu was great! I'll preface my App review with be being raised in Maryland my whole life. I ordered the crab cake. It was ok and it had claw meat mostly. It had decent flavor but nothing to shake a stick at....however the Filet with the Truffle Compound butter was THE BEST STEAK I'VE HAD IN AWHILE! Perfectly cooked and the butter actually had mince truffle...not just flecks of it. Creamed spinach was also delectable. The service is very, very good. We felt very much taken care of there.
