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.

My husband and I loved celebrating our anniversary here. The ambiance was so special after a year+ of not being inside a restaurant. The staff were incredible, especially given the challenges of covid safety, and the meal and drinks were wonderful!

Food was extremely salty and mediocre at best...for the price I would not recommend. Service was good and the atmosphere is great. Drinks were also overpriced.

We were celebrating my husbands birthday. We got tuna tartare, surf and turf, porterhouse, green beans, and creme brûlée. The entire meal was fantastic. The service was outstanding, Alexander was attentive, personable, and took very good care of us. We will be back!

We had excellent service as we returned to B&S for the first time post-COVID. The food was out of this world and we couldn't have picked a better restaurant to celebrate our 23rd anniversary dinner at.

Excellent all around. Along with Barclay Prime this is definitely one of the premier steakhouses in Philadelphia. The food is suburb, as is the dining experience.

Food was amazing. It was a great experience. We brought our 6 month old and it went great. They should add a diaper changing table in the bathrooms though. Overall - great experience.

We had our meal outdoors due to COVID restrictions. With that being said, it didn’t not effect our enjoyment of our meal. It allowed us to experience a small block of Center City Philadelphia while we ate and it was never too loud that we couldn’t hear ourselves talk. Service was fine and the wait staff were very attentive.

Service was very nice, the waiter was particularly accommodating. The raw bar selection was limited but the oysters were excellent. The meat was prepared very nicely, and was good quality. Crab and shrimp salad and the tuna tartar were both very nice. Nothing was staggeringly great, however. The only true disappointment though was the famed baked Alaska. The last time it was the highlight of the meal. This time it seemed like it was refrigerated too long, and the sponge cake bottom was hard.
