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 waiter, Alexander, went above and beyond. On point suggestions for drinks were really appreciated. The Butcher & Singer Private Select Manhattan was sublime.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
Highly suggested.

Our waiter was very nice and personable but ultimately it took 30 minutes before we had our drinks and 45 minutes before we even got bread. I can only assume that they were very short staffed in the kitchen and at the bar. Food quality is very good but over priced.

I wish we could dine here every night. The service is always wonderful, the staff is so professional. The steaks were cooked perfectly. The cocktails were delicious (Key Largo, yum). Music is groovy (think Ella Fitzgerald). Everything was fantastic. Thank you.

Went to Butcher & Singer for the first time for my husbands birthday. It was highly recommended by my sister. The food was lack luster and not properly seasoned. I was not impressed at all. This restaurant is expensive for no reason. I don’t mind paying high prices for great tasting food. Needless to say I will not being going back there anytime soon. The service was great though.

We unfortunately could only get outside seating reservations & while the service & food were great, we missed out on the inside ambiance. It's nothing they can help since it was loud traffic passing by.

Almost the entire meal was 5 stars but I came specifically for the steaks and they just weren't quite there. I had the Delmonico (medium on recommendation) and a Filet Mignon medium-rare. Both Oscar with King crab upgrade. The steaks were seasoned and cooked perfectly. The Oscar was perfect. So why only 4 stars? The meat. I found both steaks to be a bit chewy and lacking internal flavor. This is a top restaurant, so I'm naturally being very picky. The steaks were far superior to run of the mill steak joints but I've had better meat at some of the other top end steakhouses. Loved the atmosphere even with the plexiglass (which helped the noise level!). I would not recommend (upon sight) the outdoor seating. Appetizers and sides were top notch! Service excellent. A little better meat and would have been 5 stars all the way.
