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 benches are difficult to get into and out of, or pull closer to the table. The food was good but much too expensive for what we got.

Another great dinner at the amazing Butcher & Singer. We only wish that certain fellow male patrons wouldn't dress like slobs in t-shirts and sport jerseys to the most elegant restaurant in Philly. If you can't trouble yourself to at least put on a button-down shirt - just stay at your local sports bar, or order take-out.

The food was very good as well as the service. It was very cold in the restaurant and the staff could not turn the air down. Finally, our server brought me a table cloth to drape around my shoulders.

Butcher and Singer is the best meal. I've dined here 3 times and have never been disappointed. This time I took my dad to dinner and he keeps exclaiming "It was the BEST meal I've ever had!" (he's 65 years old) and shows everyone the photos of the food. The portions are extremely generous and the quality is exceptional. The service is elegant, unassuming and graceful. The ambiance is lively old Hollywood glamour. I can't wait to bring Dad back and to bring Mom for her first time.

Everything at Butcher and Singer was exactly as you would have expected it. The food was perfectly cooked and presented. There was nothing exceptional or over the top, but the interior was really nice and exactly what you would’ve expected of a steakhouse. It was a nice touch - since it was our anniversary, they gave us a candle and “happy anniversary” sign on our dessert which was very nice and thoughtful. We will be returning in the future.

The ambiance was relaxing and romantic. We would love to come back and try more. The surf and turf was excellent. The size of the lobster was large and pleasantly surprising. The Delmonico Oscar was perfectly cooked and highly recommended. The cocktails and wines were delicious and perfectly poured with expertise. Our service was also top-notched. Very knowledgeable, kind, and personable.

Were there for a birthday dinner. Chris, our sever, was attentive and knowledgable. We ordered the Delmonico (best steak of the night), surf and turf, wedge salads (off the hook) and Porterhouse for 2 (2nd best steak of the night. For dessert- we had the Baked alaska and it was amazing! Loved it.

One of the best restaurants in town in terms of value and price, if you want to try best steak in your life this is the place to go, compering to the same top level restaurants, this one has reasonable prices and amazing food, other same type restaurants have unreasonable prices and same food quality, if you want to surprise your loved ones with a romantic dinner or just have a tasty dinner with friends and/or family this is the best place in town! Service, food, dimmed lights darker setting 5 stars out of 5!

Amazing food, service, and ambiance. The pricing, however, is pretty expensive. My husband and I spent over $300 including tip and we only had two drinks apiece. The food was fantastic, and our server was perfect in that she timed our entrees perfectly yet she didn't hover over us. I'll save up and will go back again!
