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.

The service was excellent.

The oyster appetizer was ok (nothing special). The fried calamari was fishy as though the calamari was not rinsed before breading. The delmonico was perfectly prepared at medium rare. The branzino was well dine but had a bit too much butter. The mashed potatoes were a bit watery. The cauliflower and the green beans were perfectly prepared. All in all very good but not outstanding. Waited 30 min for car valet as well.

An amazing first experience at Butcher & Singer to celebrate a birthday. The service was on point, the food was amazing, possible the best NY Strip I have ever had. For the quality of the experience the price was a great value.

Classy and vibrant atmosphere. Some of the best manhattans I’ve had. Tomahawk steak and shrimp cocktail was excellent and cooked perfectly. A bit pricey but overall a great dining experience. My only critique would be at times we felt a little rushed.

This place gets an A.

I have eaten at Butcher and Singer in the past, and enjoyed outstanding steaks and prime cuts of beef. This visit was a bit disappointing, as both orders (the porterhouse for two, and the very large tomahawk rib steak) were inconsistent, with some areas of each steak very tender and flavorful, while other bites were a bit rubbery difficult to chew. The creamed spinach seemed almost "runny" and the flavor was so subtle as to be missed.

My martini lacked any "punch." The cheesecake for dessert was outstanding.

Overall, a less than stellar experience at a local steakhouse that I has never missed the mark before.

There were a couple ordering mistakes corrected quickly. The steak was medium rare when I ordered medium plus. Still was good but it seems many premium steak places live to under cook

Valet pretty expensive I thought. Excellent drinks. Great steak. Server was amazing in every respect. Had to ask to move as a very loud party of guys were soooo loud it made it difficult to hear our conversation. And it was really just the one guy dominating their conversation. But the staff was very accommodating and without hesitation moved us to another table on the other side of the room. Great job.

IMHO this is clearly the best steak house in the city. First of all, the ambience is fantastic. Elegant decor, perfect table settings. The service is very attentive without being at all overbearing. The staff will accommodate just about any reasonable request. The food is served in a timely way but there's no rush. The cocktails are wonderful. The salads are wonderful and large. It sometimes might be better to order half a salad if you're going to have a large steak dinner. This is something not all steakhouses allow you to do. As for the steak, it's fabulous. Very flavorful and tender and cooked exactly as you order it. You can have steak done to any degree inside and still have it Pittsburgh (charred) on the outside. Delicious. For veggies at least get the hash browns stuffed with sour cream and onions. This place is perfect for that special occasion dinner, a business meeting meal or just about any time you want the best steak in town. Highly recommended.

I took my wife to Butcher & Singer for our anniversary. We had a great time and the food was very good. The service was wonderful and the primary entrees were outstanding. I ordered the halibut and my wife ordered the lobster. The only opportunity was the sides which after a while were cool in temperature, however, overall good flavor and portion size. We took Lyft to get there so parking was not an issue. On price, Yes, it is a bit pricey $$$, but worth it for a special occasion.

B&S is a typical sexy, dark steakhouse with nice sized cuts of meat, huge side dishes, and the same ol' same ol' dessert menu.
A lot of the apps sounded amazing, but after tearing into both flaky biscuits with honey butter, I wanted to make sure I still had room for dessert; those biscuits....WOW. I was so close to asking for some to go, they are that good. For my entree I chose the halibut, and maybe I did not hear my waiter or he was not clear, but the halibut comes not only comes with cauliflower puree, there is also a side of roasted cauliflower. Due to the confusion, I ordered a 1/2 order of asparagus (keep in mind that most of the sides can be ordered as 1/2 portions), and it was a bit too much for me. However, both dishes were cooked to perfection and I was highly impressed. After perusing the dessert menu, I decided to pop into Alma De Cuba for their chocolate cigar (amazing). I have loved all of the Starr restaurants I have dined at, so even though I chose dessert elsewhere, I still kept it in the family.

Beautiful restaurant, former home of Stripped Bass, with a 1940's feel and ambience. However, the food is 2019 and excellent. The Porterhouse for 2 was one of the best we ever had, perfectly seasoned and cooked. The Stuffed Hash Browns are to die for and the Wedge Salad was excellent as were the cold bar appetizers. Service was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. They also have valent parking.

This is one of my favorite restaurants but I was a bit disappointed this visit. My appetizer came on a large bed of ice which fell all over the table when I tried to eat it. My steak was very chewy and I had a hard time cutting it. I hope this was just an off night. I really love the atmosphere and will be back
