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.

AWESOME, I am EXTREMELY picky and my standards are high and this met and exceeded expectations. Our server Amy is a blessing to the field and we were lucky to have her. Was a night I will remember forever!

This is normally my "go-to" restaurant since it's only a block from my office. Normally excellent, but dinner last night was all around very poor. Had a 7p reservation. Was there catching up with an old friend and let the waiter know we would be chatting for a few minutes over our drinks before ordering. This didn't stop our waiter from coming over every five minutes asking if we were ready to order. Finally we told him we'd order a couple starters and then figure out what we wanted for dinner. He informed us that he could only take our entire order at one time!!! What top notch restaurant does this? We also asked for some bread (which every other table had). The delicious biscuits finally arrived while we were eating our main course, at least a half hour after we first had to ask for them. This is after we had to remind our waiter several times we were still waiting. I ordered my filet medium and my guest ordered his veal chop medium well. They both arrived extremely rare and had to go back. His had to go back twice. Also, our stuffed hashed browns arrived at room temperature. To say the restaurant was having an off night is an understatement. Finally, the men's room was filthy with no hand towels, and dirty towels all over the floor from overflowing trash cans. Not good at all. This used to be my favorite steakhouse in Philly (where I have lived for over 40 years) but no more. They really need to get their act together.

Our dinner at Butcher & Singer on Sunday, February 23rd, was exceptional. The restaurant is a classic design with a very low noise level. From the time we arrived and until we were finished our dinner we found the staff at Butcher & Singer to be warm, friendly, courteous and efficient. Our waiter was Matt and you couldn't ask for a more perfect gentleman. He was very informative and efficient and always made sure that we were not in need of anything. Our meals were outstanding! My filet was cooked perfectly to my satisfaction and was delicious while my wife ordered the Branzino and she found it to be delicate to the taste and quite pleasing to the palate. In addition to our entrees we also ordered the butcher salad which was exceptional and large enough to share. For our sides we also ordered the stuffed Hash Browns and the roasted brussels sprouts. Both sides were very good and were also large enough to share.
Needless to say our dinner at the Butcher and Singer was enjoyable and very memorable.

The bar itself is small and since we needed to wait, it was difficult to get a drink. There seemed to be only two who were servicing the bar and restaurant. For me that is a major inconvenience .

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!

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!
