    One of my guest love the meal and restaurant so much, she said she felt as if she had been transported to another time. Because she was so young she didn’t know what time that was😂However she said it must’ve been really fabulous…Always great having a special dinner at Butcher and Singer everything was exceptional

    Cannot say enough good things! Took us 30 min early despite having a full house on a Tuesday evening. Our server Brian was absolutely outstanding! He was professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and so on point! I’ve never had better service in my life, please give this man a bonus! The delmonico steak, lobster tails, oysters, mashed potatoes and mac and cheese was amazing! Hats off to the kitchen. The bread was to die for and Brian kept it coming. Such a lovely evening and one I will not forget! Thank you Brian and staff for an amazing experience! I would absolutely recommend 100 times over and would love to return. If you want a high quality dinner, please know your money here is worth it for a fabulous time.

    Such a disappointment, from the drinks to the entree. My $20 martini was on the small size ( for a big price), the steak tartare which is my usual favorite dish, was bland and over refrigerated ; my second appetizer was a cold lobster cocktail, which was also minuscule and tasteless and finally my husband’s bone- in -filet was stringy and also tasteless. Even my husband’s Cabernet recommended by our server was thin and not impressive. Too expensive a dinner for these mistakes. The room is pretty and the ambience subdued. Too bad the food doesn’t measure up.

    Everything about this restaurant is wonderful. Our server, Brandi, was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. She had great recommendations for my birthday dinner, ranging from the bison steak to the lemon icebox pie for dessert. (She’s also an amazing singer!). The food was delicious, the service impeccable, and I can’t speak highly enough about this restaurant! Thank you for a wonderful birthday dinner!

    It was my 3rd time dining here, but it was my boyfriend’s first time. He ordered everything he wanted: apple martini, Bombay sapphire martini with blue cheese olives, and the Delmonico steak with Oscar. I ordered the New York strip with Oscar and stuffed hash browns. He loved everything!!! The martinis were made perfectly as well as the Delmonico steak. He truly enjoyed his first experience and to me everything was exactly how I enjoyed it my first time. It ultimately made us both very happy with the long week we had. I would highly recommend!!!

    I was looking for a nice place to entertain my manager (she lives out of state), and meet her for the first time in person, and Open Table popped up. Long/short, It was great! The food was very delicious and the atmosphere wonderful. She loved the whole style and the food. She was very impressed and said she will return.

    We celebrated a birthday here last night. The food was stupendous and the service was spot on. The biscuits were the best we’ve ever had - so light and fluffy. We’re from the south so we know our biscuits! Make sure to make this special spot a stop whenever you are in Philly or when you need to “make it nice!”

The steak was cooked perfectly and was incredibly tender. We loved every aspect of our meal from the appetizer to the soup to the steaks and sides to the dessert. We will be returning!

    What an absolutely beautiful setting for an anniversary dinner or other special occasion.. The service was outstanding and the food absolutely delicious. My husband commented his NY strip was the best steak he’s ever had. If you are a potato fan, you must try the hash brown potato dish. I can’t say enough good things about this establishment. If you are in Philadelphia and want a memorable dinner out, this is the perfect spot.

    A wonderful experience. the staff were very helpful and informative. We were able to split a Cesar Salad, which was good as we saw the size of the single and we would not have been able to have room for dinner if we didnt split it. We also got the Porterhouse for 2 with the Hash Brown and the mushrooms and the peanut butter and chocolate tart for desert. Tons of leftovers, and the food was wonderful. Such a great steak and the Hash Brown is just so yum. I would recommend this as a great special occasion steak house, as it is very pricy, but everything was awesome.
