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.

Went for the lunch time restaurant week deal and it did not disappoint. Food and service were great and the price was excellent. Three courses was more than enough food. Took home leftovers.

Went for restaurant week. Biscuits were amazing. Food was very good. Additionals very pricey. Drink (BlackBerry martini) was good but not very strong for the price. Server Brian was excellent.

I honestly expected a Steak to be on the Restaurant menu and the fact that a BURGER was offered in a Steak House is UNACCEPTABLE!! I actually ended up getting a Tbone and it was mediocre compared to A 'TEXAS ROADHOUSE T-BONE STEAK'!!

The food and service were top notch as always! We ended up sitting at the bar, and the fantastic bartender, Ashley, took care of us! She was such a delight, super friendly and very engaging! Enjoyed some amazing potato skins (a must try), Caesar salad (restaurant week selection), and the cheese burger! Best burger I’ve had in the city! Dessert (*insert 3 drool emojis*) was incredible. Everything about this place is pretty much perfect. I always recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a superb steak, and amazing service. Thanks, always

The sad thing is that Restaurant week lunch menu don’t include the steak. But the volume of lunch set is good especially you order a burger. The taste of what I ordered was good, but not as I imagined for a high rated restaurant. The cost performance of restaurant week menu is definitely good.
Tips:they don’t offer bread and butter for lunch.

Came here for Restaurant Week and had a fabulous evening. We arrived early for our reservations just so we could hang out at the swanky bar they have. House cocktails did not disappoint and the bartenders were very professional.
We we seated at a table for two on the upper side level. Table is just big enough to accommodate the required glasses and plates. The styling and ambience make me think that this is where the cast of Mad Men would go when they wanted a steak dinner.
And what a steak dinner it was. My piece of fillet was as tall as it was round. Cooked a perfect medium rare and rested long enough so no juices were waisted yet the meat was still warm. Alas, the stuffed hash browns were not on the prix fixe menu. However the creamed spinach was delicious.
Everything about our evening here had polish and class. The staff was welcoming and helpful both to guests and each other. Working as finely together as the jazz bands that provided the soundtrack for the evening.

Scored a restaurant week reservation for Butcher & Singer and it was worth it based on how pricy the items are regularly. But I still would rather attend when it's now RW and pay full-price, the overall experience seems better that way and the food was better not during RW.

If you are looking for sumptuous steaks and perfectly crafted cocktails make a reservation here. The service was impeccable as well. The ambiance is that of a low light steakhouse out of the 40s and creates a great atmosphere for a date night or special occasion. We will be back!

Food was tasty but soup, filet, and creamed corn spinach were served lukewarm. Server was not friendly and never checked on us when we received food. I've been here before and I know this is not the norm.

Very good for restaurant week. Ambiance is amazing! We ordered “flat water no ice” thinking it was normal tap water but were then charged $7 for the water, which was very expensive.

I think maybe my expectations were a little too high. Service was excellent, and we got some delicious virgin cocktails. As far as food goes, I could have eaten an entire basket of the bread of the butter. And the lump crab was insanely delicious (and I usually dont prefer crab). The mushroom soup was ok, but just couldnt get myself to finish it (maybe it was the grainy texture?), and my steak was cooked a little more like a medium than a medium rare. Mashed potatoes were nice and creamy and well seasoned though. Dessert was standard.

I loved the old Hollywood atmosphere. The restaurant is cozy and can get noisy if busy. The filet was excellent and the mushroom soup was delicious! The service was attentive and friendly. I would recommend this restaurant for couples, business dinners and friends night out!

I came here for restaurant week and I ordered the steak, baked goat cheese, mashed potatoes, and lemon tart off the restaurant week menu. It was all super delicious although I had placed an order for medium rare and got rare/almost blue - I didn’t mind it since I had debated going a bit rare this time but it was a good sear on all sides. I always enjoy Butcher and Singer’s atmosphere and ambiance with friends.
