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

Everything about this place was wonderful. The service and food. We are from Dallas and love steak . I wish we had a location in Dallas. The steak was great the appetizers and sides. No complaints from us, next time in Philly we will stop here.

This is our first time back since 2019. The service, ambiance and overtake feel were wonderful, as always. Unfortunately, we drive in 2 hours for the chicken and it has changed. It was still good, but not what it was pre-Covid. That was very disappointing.

Out for a girl’s night and we had the most attentive waiter, Brian. He explained everything on the menu and had the most amazing voice while doing so. The food was delicious as well as the ambiance. Would definitely go back for a special occasion.

We had a lovely evening celebrating my birthday. Our server was attentive and the entire staff helpful. We were a bit disappointed that the kitchen wouldn't accommodate with one of the appetizers we requested. Most of the meal came out perfect with the exception of the broccolini that arrive cool.

Service tonight was terrible. Our waiter misheard our drink order, was unattentive, and did not box up one of the meals we asked to take home. The food was great though. We are long time customers and are glad tonight was not our first experience because we would not be going back.

Back to B & S to celebrate my birthday. Brought another couple who have never been there before. It was off the charts amazing. The service was just impeccable. Our server, Alexander, was probably the best server we have ever had anywhere!! He is so professional at his job, and very personable! We cannot wait to return!!!

Amazing experience. I was a little skeptical about going for a fine dining by myself, especially on my birthday but Brian made it exceptional. He was well informed about the menu and all his recommendations were spot on! Loved loved the entire experience from the front desk to the server. The food itself? Splendid!

Our 1st time dining at Butcher and Singer and it was fabulous! Jonathan our waiter was outstanding and his recommendations were spot on and delicious! Maybe the best steak I’ve ever had and hard to imagine but the biscuits were maybe even better!!

Cool environment and very nice dining environment. A bit loud when the restaurant is at full capacity and the costs is a bit much on the menu!

That said, it was an outstanding evening with great doors and service!

This is my second time at Butcher and Singer and it won’t be my last. We sat at the bar for a cocktail before dinner and our bartender displayed his mastery at our martinis and concoctions all over the bar. Beautiful drinks. Once seated we had Ashley taking care of our table with a professionalism rarely seen, very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. She’s definitely 5 stars and the food? DIVINE. The manager, Mary was constantly checking on all the guests as well. This is my new favorite restaurant in Philly and I’m planning on bringing all my friends here.

I was awestruck when I walked in. I felt like I was in an old Hollywood movie. My husband and I had dinner here because I was given a Starr gift card. The food was delicious. My husband had the Delmonico steak which cut like butter. I had the shrimp which was perfectly cooked. We shared the stuffed hash brown and mushrooms. I highly recommend the hash brown. For dessert I had the Baked Alaska.It was the perfect end to wonderful dinner. Our server Dirk was great. He was very kind and helpful. As this was our first time here he was very welcoming. The whole experience was just amazing. I felt pampered. This was the most swankiest restaurant I have ever been in. Truthfully, this is the only time we would have dinner here. Although the quality of the dinners and the ambience is well worth the price, we could have not eaten here if we didn't have the gift card. So thank you Butcher and Singer for allowing me to feel so special for a night.
