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.

Great ambiance, sort of grand. Dim lighting, but somehow you can see Menu. Great wait staff. Good food. Steak was a bit over peppered for my taste. Cool location

The only thing negative about the dining experience was that it was very cold in the restaurant. I did not mention to the waiter but some people did but nothing changed. I actually needed to put my coat around my shoulders and some other people did this as well.

The wait staff at Butcher and Singer are excellent! My server saw that it was our anniversary on the reservation and brought us some bubbly on the house--so attentive and kind! She also had excellent suggestions and knew when to check in and when to let us chew. The food was excellent, we chose the roasted chicken, macaroni and cheese, maple bourbon bacon, and the chef's special that evening, a 22 oz sirloin. Everything was wonderful and needed no correction. Highly recommend the macaroni as well! The dessert (we had carrot cake and baked Alaska) was fabulous as always, and other staff (maybe an owner, manager, I'm not sure) also asked us if we were enjoying everything and we felt very well-cared-for. Amazing!

It was a great, intimate environment and the service was impeccable. I ordered the bone-in filet and it was delicious, but I might go with the 8oz filet next time since the 16oz portion was a lot. Also, the creamed spinach was amazing!

The steak was good and the twin lobster tails were great. I loved the bread so much that they were fresh and crispy. I would recommend the bread, escargot and singer fries.

Double date night. We arrived and waited for our other party. As soon as they arrive we were seated immediately. Lindsay was our server and she did an excellent job. Our cups never empty. Food was delicious. I got the halibut, thanks to Lindsay’s advice. The biscuits are AMAZING. Prices were a little high for drinks, but overall we had a great experience.

Visiting Philadelphia for an overnight, we came across this restaurant through our hotel app as a nearby suggestion. What a pleassant surprise. Top notch steakhouse with beautiful decor. Top of the line service. Delicious biscuits to start. Highly recommend the stuffed hashbrown and brussel sprouts as sides. 5 star experience!

While at first glance some might call the menu simplistic, every item is prepared to perfection. The ambience is a complete balance of old Hollywood and modern. Tables are on two levels allowing space between parties. The booths are the spot to be! Our waitress guided us through the menu as first time guests and did not steer us wrong. Did not disappoint and cannot wait to return!

Great special occasion restaurant. Its a steak restaurant so its pricey but the food was terrific (sides and salad portions were generous). The servers were professional, knowledgable and made us feel comfortable but at the same time avoiding that odd obsequiousness you sometimes get a fancy restaurants. We dined with a small child who needed to be taken away from the table just before dinner arrived. The server held back mom's steak so that it was warm when she was came back but still cooked as ordered! Its those little details that really make it work.

Food was excellent. The hash brown potatoes and creamed spinach sides were fantastic. the Steak (filet) was very good. I will say I think Capital is a bit better steak, but only just.

Our server was very attentive and quite frankly excellent. I would expect no less.

Another nice surprise was the cost of the valet ($22). that's cheaper than many of the nearby garages!

I will definitely be back! soon!
