Food was delicious! Wine/cocktail selection was perfect! The building itselt is gorgeous! The waitress was very efficient, although not very warm. Not that it mattered much, she did her job very well in serving us promptly and was curtious. Great time overall!

Went for my son’s 24th birthday. There were 6 of us. Four of us ordered the porterhouse for two, one ordered the swordfish, and the other the filet. The meat was delicious! Beware tho that medium is more like rare; pink edges and hot red center. If you don’t like to see red, order medium well. We started with one B &S salad, which had the kitchen sink in it and was good, but not outstanding. One person ordered the special seasonal salad tha had pears, apples and blue cheese in it and it was very good. Our sides were roasted cauliflower (nothing special), bacon Mac & cheese (outstanding) and mashed potatoes (very good). Dessert was homemade ice cream and coffee (yum). Believe it or not the most memorable part of the dinner for me (we were all swooning) was the bread/biscuits and honey butter. I could have eaten those all night and been happy. Truly the most delicious flaky biscuits and best butter I’ve ever had. All in all it was a wonderful dinner. Very expensive as everything is a la carte, so a $50 steak along with everything else running from $12-24 each comes with a pretty high price tag, but for a special occasion it’s worth splurging. Great evening!

The ambience and service is great. We had fried calamari, Caesar salad, and the Porterhouse for two. The calamari and salads were good, but the porterhouse was way too salty, to the point of being unable to eat. I’m usually one who pours salt on everything, but it was way too overpowering.

I went to Butcher and Singer with my girlfriend expecting a fine meal based on reviews I had read. What I experienced far surpassed my relatively high expectations. This was perhaps the finest meal I have ever had. From the moment we walked in, I felt transported back in time. The building reminded me not so much of an old time steakhouse as it did a castle. The entire staff was extremely friendly and attentive, but not overly so. The food was exquisite. All the way from the raw bar to the entrees. (I had no room for dessert after everything else I had). The cocktails were topnotch. This is a must see place for anyone who enjoys steak. Just be prepared to pay for it.

Traditional Steakhouses are hard to find these days. The steaks are well prepared; the sides range from good to outstanding and the wine list is robust. I highly recommend them for business meals or social occasions.

Great place for a quiet evening together. It was out first visit. We enjoyed the meal. I had the bone-in tenderloin. It was EXCELLENT! My wife had the 6oz tenderloin. She liked it but ate most of my steak. Our server was attentive. We'll definitely go back again.

Was our first time here- very beautiful room.. The service was excellent- seated right away, drinks came quickly. The steaks were all tasty. Nice side dishes- Dessert menu was limited- could add a few more exciting things though the baked alaska was good. The wine prices are terribly inflated here- especially the premier wines by the glass. Mark up left me with a not great feeling about returning.

I️ wanted to take my boyfriend for a luxury steak dinner for his birthday and could not be more pleased. The dining room was gorgeous - a very sexy atmosphere. The staff was attractive, professional, and discreet. Our server offered excellent opinions (when asked) on wine, sides, and dessert, and was knowledgeable about the different meat cuts available. He and the support staff (food runners, bussers) struck the perfect balance of enhancing our meal without being showy or intrusive. I️t was a great night.

Favorite spot in Philly! We had been here once before and were concerned it wouldn’t live up to what we remembered. We were wrong- it was just as good if not better!

We started the evening with cocktails. One off the menu and one on. They came out quickly and were well made.

We then ordered the crab cake which was full of crab meat! Not too much breading. This was paired with and apple slaw to keep it on the lighter side.

They have upped their bread game! Fluffy biscuits paired with a honey butter.

For dinner we split a perfectly cooked porterhouse for two, heavenly hashbrown potatoes (my favorite) and roasted cauliflower.

The waiter went above and beyond when helping us with wine.

We finished off the night with ginger snap ice cream and port.

It was a perfect meal and night out! We will be back!

Went there post matinee on a Sat. as a birthday celebration for my sister. Seated quickly with our reservation. Hot crumbly bisquits served almost immediately. We both ordered Filet mignon, creamed spinach and the Hash brown potatoes. All delicious. The birthday girl got her chocolate cake, a big slice! I picked the baked Alaska with a mountain of melt in your mouth meringue. We had a great time.

This was our 2nd time to Butcher & Singer and it was just as enthralling as the first time. The service was top notch, the food, especially the steaks were luscious, juicy and tender, cooked to order. We will be returning, thank you for a great 30th Anniversary Dinner.
The picture is all of us relaxed and happy after a wonderful experience.

We had made a reservation for 8:30 but a table was not ready for us until 8:50, at first we were a little upset with the wait but then an employee with the restaurant came over and provided us with a free shrimp appetizer. She apologized for the wait and offered the appetizer right away since we were probably hungry. From there on the service was great and the food was amazing. Would highly recommend for a nice dinner.

We visited before seeing Phantom at the Academy of Music. The appetizers were delicious, especially the Tuna Tartare. We had the Porterhouse for Two - probably the best steak I’ve ever eaten! The sides & dessert were great, too.
Our server, Andrew, was attentive, professional & had a great sense of humor! All & Ll a wonderful experience.

This was the best meal my fiance and I have ever eaten. The biscuits were a perfect start to the meal. I had the filet mignon and my fiance had the porterhouse. Both so delicious, I can hardly describe how wonderful the meat tasted. The mashed potatoes were a perfect compliment to our meal and the key lime pie topped off the evening wonderfully. The cocktails and service were impeccable as well. Everything was so good, we were planning our next trip back while we were in the middle of eating our meals.

Went here for our Anniversary dinner and had a great time. Started with a couple of drinks and the bar and the bartender Shawn was great. Made my wife a drink that was not on the menu and few bartenders know how to make well and he nailed it. Sat down for dinner and we received complimentary glasses of champagne for our Anniversary. The waiters (Chris & Matt) were very attentive and friendly. Apps came out at a nice pace (Stone Crab then salad wedge) and at no time did we feel pressured to "hurry up". Ordered our main course (Filet Mignon & Delmonico) which were OK, my Delmonico was a bit under cooked, even though I ordered it as chef-recommended (medium), my wife's Filet was perfect. For dessert we ordered Butterscotch Sundae which was great and it also came with a complimentary Baked Alaska as an Anniversary treat. Overall, the experience was great ... Staff, from hostesses-to bar-to wait staff-to manager really know how to treat their customers.
