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 hand cut steaks and chops, and freshly caught fish. Timeless and fun for all in the continued age of the American chophouse.

Our server Oksana was wonderful—very friendly and sweet. We were celebrating an anniversary and they provided complimentary champagne to celebrate. On top of that, we never felt rushed and the food was, as always, AMAZING.

Our party of 5 went to celebrate my birthday. Every bit of the experience was amazing. I had the filet mignon, it was by far the best I've ever had. Sides and salad were great, the biscuits are out of this world and the dessert was delicious. I would recommend to anyone looking to celebrate a special event. Loved it!

I took my boyfriend out to dinner as a Valentines Day present and he said it was that best porterhouse he’s ever had. That’s what I was hoping for.

Large party (7) with kids<10yo. Staff was great. Food good quality- steak, chicken, bronzino. Nice touch of a card for the Birthday guest. Maybe hard for young kids. Would go back- couldn’t ask for more.

Absolutely the best food I've ever had. My husband and I weren't disappointed in one food item that we ordered. We'll definitely be traveling to Philly more often to eat here. A must visit if you're in the area and love a rib eye.

We had a wonderful experience for lunch in my husband's birthday. The only thing I can suggest is less salt on the butcher salad, and the temperature of the restaurant was pretty chilly. Service was excellent, I had asked the server for suggestions as I was in the mood for an after meal coffee drink, was then pointed to the coffee cocktail and ordered it, not realizing it was cold not hot. When the server asked how it was, I commented that it was lovely, I had just thought it would be warm, she took it off our bill; again lovely service and consideration. I will recommend to others.

The best steaks in town. They do a little more char on the outside and a lot more salt than the other top steak houses, and that makes their steaks the best. Top quality meat is a given at this price point. The interior is spectacular, with dim lighting, very high ceilings, stone columns, etc. Love it!

The only thing negative about the dining experience was that it was very cold in the restaurant. I did not mention to the waiter but some people did but nothing changed. I actually needed to put my coat around my shoulders and some other people did this as well.

The wait staff at Butcher and Singer are excellent! My server saw that it was our anniversary on the reservation and brought us some bubbly on the house--so attentive and kind! She also had excellent suggestions and knew when to check in and when to let us chew. The food was excellent, we chose the roasted chicken, macaroni and cheese, maple bourbon bacon, and the chef's special that evening, a 22 oz sirloin. Everything was wonderful and needed no correction. Highly recommend the macaroni as well! The dessert (we had carrot cake and baked Alaska) was fabulous as always, and other staff (maybe an owner, manager, I'm not sure) also asked us if we were enjoying everything and we felt very well-cared-for. Amazing!

It was a great, intimate environment and the service was impeccable. I ordered the bone-in filet and it was delicious, but I might go with the 8oz filet next time since the 16oz portion was a lot. Also, the creamed spinach was amazing!
