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

Attended this restaurant during restaurant week. I believe this is a great time to experience a 4/5 star restaurant during the advertised week without spending so much money opposed to a regular night dining. It gives a customer the experience to see if they would like to come back to the restaurant during regular dining hours. Yes I would attend this restaurant again. Next time with a different waiter. Lol. He wasn’t as nice as some other waiters of the ones I viewed and interaction with the guest. Food was very tasty. A must to try. Steak was sooooo good. Definitely a 5 star steak.

Restaurant week Lunch $20 for 3 course meal was well worth it. The crab cakes and salmon were fantastic and the chocolate creme de pot was amazingly rich and creamy. The lemon tart and blueberry compote was a culinary experience in flavor. Service was awesome

We went to Butcher & Singer before an appointment in the area. We didn't know about the Restaurant Week special but it was a fabulous deal. The crab cakes were excellent, as was the Cobb Salad and the Salmon. The desserts were great as well. Awesome deal at $20pp.

The ambiance and service were great, but I think the food quality suffered due to restaurant week. I’ve heard such great things and was so disappointed when my meal got to the table.

Good ambiance. But food was sub par at best. Steaks were too salty and tough. Maybe it was restaurant's week that brought down the quality but no return based on the experience.

Creamed spinach that everyone raved about was okay at best and salty. Crab cake with fennel slaw was spot on, though. I don't even like coleslaw normally and I ate it all, so there's that. And the filet was well cooked.

Loved every minute of our dining experience! We would return in a heartbeat! It’s hard not to fall in love with the ambiance of the restaurant from the moment you walk in. Our server connected with us instantly, was tuned into our individual needs and personalities and entertained us all the while! Dinner, wine and cocktails, and dessert were all divine! Five star restaurant, hands down!

Beautiful, comfortable interior. Service was terrific whether it was at the bar prior to dinner, or during the meal. Knowledgeable staff, recommending both popular dishes, in addition to personal favorites. Bone in filet was cooked to perfection, hash brown potato side plenty for 2-4 (house specialty) was delicious. Highly recommend for a special evening.

I went to Butcher and Singer for my birthday dinner with my bf during restaurant week. The menu didn't have a lot of options but I expected the quality of the food would have made a difference. We both ordered the butternut squash soup for appetizers, I ordered the filet mignon and he ordered the salmon for the entree and for dessert I ordered the pot de creme and he had the lemon tart. The soup was ok and the dessert was good. However, when I ordered the steak there was a small bug crawling on my plate. I quickly told the waiter and the brought me out a new one saying that the bug came from the greens (garnish). To compensate for the bug, that gave me a free dessert from their main menu, even though, I expected to have a free meal since there was a bug on my plate.

Went for restaurant week and was thoroughly impressed. I try to go to new restaurants during this special time, and I had previously never been to Butcher and Singer. The 3 course menu was terrific. The crab cake was small on the first course, but hey it’s $35! The 8oz filet was cooked perfectly. The lemon tart with blueberry compote was Devine. The food was delivered promptly. No need for seasoning in anything. Me nor my wife touched the salt and pepper shakers all night. The service was great. She had the roast chicken with cream spinach. She loved it. Restaurant week should be looked at as a marketing endeavor for these business to drum up new business in the future. You can tell that this is Butcher and Singers philosophy.

Went to B&S in a group of four. Three of us ordered the Filet and one ordered the Porterhouse. Each of us who ordered the Filets were very surprised by how fatty/tough the cut was. Additionally the steaks were surprisingly salty. We unanimously agreed that the steaks were a 6/10.

The dining experience at Butcher & Singer combines old-world elegance with excellent food and service. Going there as part of Restaurant Week enables everyone to enjoy a superior meal at an affordable price. It was also considerate of the restaurant to add a moderate wine choice to accompany the RW menu. Would definitely recommend.
