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.

We were seated in the middle of the restaurant although they had several booths available.
Whenever somebody entered the restaurant the cold was bothering my wife.

The Escargots had too much garlic and the Singer fries were just average.

Not worth the money!

We drove down from NYC for the evening and had to try based on reviews. The filet was cooked to perfection. We had two vegans in our party and the had the Green Beans, Potatoes & Hash Browns. Meal was topped off with the Cheesecake & Baked Alaska.

Had a couple Vodka Martinis at the bar prior to dinner, they were absolutely perfect. We were seated a little late but no big deal they were very busy. Wait staff was excellent, crab dip was amazing, Filet Oscar was impeccable. I would highly recommend Butcher and Singer to anyone

The food was excellent but more importantly the service was fantastic: never arrogant, instead the wait staff was friendly, knowledgeable and respectful. Our bartender and waiter (Marshall)were perfect. We even saw the restaurant manager, who checked in with us towards the end of our meal to ensure everything was top notch, helping the bus boys clear a table. The ambiance was A+. Of course, for all of this you will pay a fairly high dollar price, but for many - including us on this special occasion - it will be well worth it. Bravo, Butcher & Singer.

I have been here many times and it's always good and consistent food. However, on the most recent trip we were seated all the way in the back and I had to look into the kitchen for my entire meal. It really killed the mood. I realize this has to happen to someone but for a restaurant at this level at least get a curtain to break it up. Our bill was $300 for 2 people....if I'm paying this I don't want to look at the busy kitchen for 2 hours. A+ food, A+ service, A+ wine list, C on atmosphere this time around.

What a fantastic dining experience in a gorgeous atmosphere!

The food was absolutely splendid and the service was so personalized, professional and above and beyond what you would expect. Ask for Brian if you can! He’s from Charleston, SC and brought all the charm and hospitality from his hometown.

Truly a wonderful night of dining with friends from out of town!

Sure to impress anyone you take there!

We had a special birthday dinner here, they clearly read the request in the reservation. The waiter was very attentive. We just shared items and they split everything for us. Very extensive wine list. Short but nice food selection. Atmosphere is great, very cosy feel but plenty of space. Highy recommended!

I was there with 4 people. The steak was very good, veggies were not at all good and everything was a bit salty. We were not at all impressed with the veggie choices and to top that even more surprise of the dessert choices. Out of 4 of us no one ordered dessert. The service was long and for the money I have been to much better places.

First time at this restaurant. Ordered two filet mignons, which both came out cooked as requested. Mashed were excellent as were the mushrooms and onions. My favorite find there was the biscuits that were served in lieu of bread. Outstanding and incredible - like no biscuit I have ever had. Would definitely return.
