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.

    Sin duda el mejor steakhouse que he ido en mi vida (y he visitado muchos). Pedí un cabernet y me ofrecieron Daou de Paso Robles. En verdad buenísimo y a un precio razonable. El wedge salad, muy fresco y distinta presentación al que ofrecen en otros lados. Los ejotes almendrados, en verdad en su punto, así como las costillas de cordero. Por si fuera poco, pedí un creme brulée que también estaba perfecto. Cuando la comida está buena, no te sientes muy lleno. No dejé ni una migaja en el plato. Me comí todo y salí feliz. Como iba solo, me senté en la barra, donde conocí a Zac y a Rachel, ambos bartenders muy amigables, hábiles y serviciales. Sin duda lo voy a recomendar.

    One of my favorite restaurants, the staff is so friendly and unbelievably kind. Each staff member made our night feel so special and welcoming. Kevin picked out an amazing wine for us which we absolutely loved. Our waitress was so kind, friendly, and a pleasure to talk to. She went above and beyond to make sure we had an amazing dining experience. The food was beyond amazing, full of flavor. We will definitely be back to have Kevin pick us out more delicious wine!

    We were celebrating a birthday. Gorgeous setting and dining room. Our server Chris… made it so much more special! Food is so so good.. shrimp cocktail - soooo fresh! The Butcher Salad is a MUST! And the steaks… prepared to perfection! As for dessert - creme brûlée another MUST! Chris served the birthday boy’s dessert with a birthday message and candle - very thoughtful and fun gesture. Thank you! Perfect night outHighly recommend!

    Nice place to go once. Biscuits were the highlight. Wedge salad was good and plenty to share between 2. Hashbrown and Delmonico steak were good but not outstanding. Baked Alaska was good. Apricot and banana taste was good combination.
