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.

It wasn't the first time I have been here and I must say that I still haven't been disappointed. I celebrated my first anniversary with my girlfriend and they were extra attentive and she was very pleased. Thank you again for a amazing time

I went here with my family for my graduation dinner.

Great restaurant! Steak was fantastic, chicken was great, and the calamari was AMAZING.

Probably would not eat there as often as I would for an Olive Garden or Cheesecake Factory simply due to the price.

But that is what makes this place so special to test yourself for a special occasion and excellent quality!

Hostesses that greeted were very welcoming and friendly. Thumbs up to them. Hostess that sat us seemed annoyed when we asked if another table was available. The response should always be pleasant; the young lady should always say that she would be happy to check on that; she needs to be retrained. Noise level is too high for us, but quieter than a lot of other places. It was my birthday, so they brought glasses of champagne for each of us on the house i think, but maybe not. it was brought in the wrong kind of glass - the wide circumference glass that was used in the sixties and seventies that would now be used for a scoop of ice cream. Our waiter: very pleasant, very eager to make the experience a good one for us, but he speaks too quickly. We had to ask him three times to say the specials more slowly. It was hard for him. He just needs some practice, but we liked him. On the other hand there may not have been enough help and he was rushing to take care of too many tables. I don't know. In general, the table was not bused by staff in a professional way. Reaching over guests, removing some plates, but not others.... a sloppiness to it. Just seemed to us that some retraining sessions might quickly correct everything. The food was all very good. And I enjoyed the evening.

I ordered the 8oz filet mignon cooked medium. It was overcooked and dry and way too salty. The calamari dish had more pieces of pepper than actual calamari. Heard so many good things about this place, but I was so disappointed and will never go back again. It was so bad, it’s hard for me to believe we are the only ones that have had this experience. The only good thing that came out of our 300 dollar meal was the biscuits that I could have bought from the grocery store for 2 dollars.

We dine at this place every now and then. We have tried every steak of them. To be honest, their steak is okay, not the fantastic ones. Other food is decent but you may find better ones at other places in the city.

The reason we still go their is the good service and atmosphere they have.

We dined at Butcher and Singer to celebrate our nephew’s college graduation. Ricky, our waiter, was exceptional as was everything about B&S. The steaks were among the very best, if not the best, our group has ever had, and the ambiance of the restaurant and its history, special and unique. Highly, highly recommended.

Couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Food was delicious, Service was terrific (friendly and spot on), and they acknowledged our anniversary with a free dessert at the end which was a nice touch. Overall an excellent experience!

Decent Chop House. Manhattan was overly bittered. Shrimp Cocktail was 4 shrimp (not 5) , medium sized and one needed cleaning. Steak a little heavy on the salt. Morton level prices and okay quality. Wait staff was unrelenting in their upselling. Nothing remarkable but nothing horrible either.

This was our 2nd visit to Butcher and Singer and we were absolutely taken away again by the amazingly wonderful food and classy ambiance. I brought my husband here as a surprise for his “40th Birthday” on Cinco de Mayo. We we so glad to have our favorite server, Jeremy L. who does a fantastic job with everything from answering any questions to making you feel so welcomed! The Delmonico and Filet Surf and Turf were our main course and were both delicious. The Bees Knees has to be the best cocktail I have ever had! This has to be one of the best restaurants I have ever experienced and anyone who doesn’t know about it should! Looking forward to out next visit at Butcher and Singer!

This is the second time I've been to Butcher and Singer and it did not disappoint! Always a perfect place for a special occasion or just a nice dinner. The steak is always delicious, the crust on the Delmonico is perfect.

Our waiter was amazing, loved his attitude and professionalism. He didn't know it was a birthday night, so after we had already ordered dessert, he found out, and brought us another dessert with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate on the side. He also took care of us with recommendations on food and how best to order the steak.

The appetizers and sides are amazing as well. Calamari is always a hit for us, and asparagus is gigantic. The hash brown has sour cream and potatoes inside a bird's nest of hash browns that are baked to a crisp.

Overall, great place to go, and it is definitely a place that's always on my list to go when I'm in Philadelphia for a special occasion.

This is our third time at Butcher & Singer hosting an annual get together of 6 or more people. The food and portions are very good but every year we have had at least one person from the table has had to send back their steak because they were undercooked. I have never had that regularly happen at any other steak restaurant that I have gone to.

I would recommend the restaurant.

Although the restaurant is beautiful and the service was attentive, we were very disappointed with our meal. Every dish was so over-salted that it was hard to enjoy the flavors of the food. My fish was totally over cooked. Even the dessert was so-so. The wine menu is so over priced, there was barely anything decent under $100. All this and a $500 tab with tip. Will never go back!

If there was a way to leave less than 1 star I would. We were there to celebrate a birthday. Although all four of us ordered steaks, which you would expect to be a no brainer at a steak house, this restaurant needed 3 separate, long attempts to get the order correct. They came out every way except how they were ordered. It took over 2 hours and fifteen minutes for us to get the opportunity to have our meal. By the time the food came we were not really hungry. We just wanted to get out. The manager was sorry that the meal took 3 hours and was poorly executed. We were sorry we chose this restaurant.
