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 dry aged, hand cut steaks and chops, and freshly caught fish. Timeless and fun for all in the continued age of the American chophouse.

I was in Philadelphia for business and looked to Open Table for a recommendation. When we first arrived it was a little intimidating.....loud music (nice music, but loud!) and it felt frenetic. We asked for a table where we could talk and they nicely obliged. The service was perfect: friendly, knowledgeable, well-timed. The food was crazy good. Excellent salads...really special. The biscuits are insane....the best ever. I have recommended it and will definitely go back. Wines were also excellent....good choices by the glass!

Food was good but steak and mash potato a little on the salty side. Too much upselling on the wine, pinot noir was eye wateringly expensive at $34 a glass, felt the waiter steered me to the more expensive option and should of mentioned that it was more than twice the price. The restaurant should provide small flashlights as the interior is very dark and almost impossible to see the menu.

We were celebrating two couple’s Wedding Anniversaries - A special request was sent to the Restaurant but there was no mention of it from our Waiter. I ordered the Branzino which was just o.k. Everyone else ordered steaks or veal cops and they really liked their meal.

Anniversary dinner. Very good Manhattan cocktail before dinner. Server in the bar area was very friendly and efficient. Our waiter, Zach, was very friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Wedge salad and shrimp cocktail were very good. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her filet and hash brown side dish. I ordered the New York strip with Oscar. The crab, asparagus and Bernaise was delicious with my steak which was perfectly cooked. For dessert we shared the carrot cake, which came on a plate decorated with “Happy Anniversary” and was excellent. One of our favorite “special occasion” restaurants.

Had a group out; squeezed us into a table; service was ok.
Took my drink away while there was some still left in the glass.
the food was good. i was disappointed in what my steak cost compared to how it tasted. definitely not medium/rare. I didn't tell the server; shame on me; but i was hungry as heck.
I've been there before had a wonderful meal. not so this time around.
If I'm paying; i'm not going; if somebody else is paying; i'll go.
Again; my servers knew nothing i did not tell them. they may have remedied everything. This is my one time experience.
Thanks

One of the truly exceptional Philadelphia dining experiences. The food was all cooked and seasoned to perfection. The atmosphere was lively with jazz music but diners are given adequate space, not crowded on top of other table. And the service is just exceptional. Particularly loved the side dishes. And those biscuits baked to order!!

Anniversary dinner, outstanding service. Steaks were good but could use a little more flavor. I had the Tomahawk ribeye which was good but I think for $125 I was expecting more out of it flavor wise. I would go back but probably for lunch.
