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.

Delicious steaks! Could have been a little warmer but certainly tasty. Halibut and chicken were also very good! Service was impeccable. Great way to celebrate our college student who was yearning for a good steak, mashed potatoes and creamed spinach after a month of dining hall food.

The entire experience was phenomenal. Our waiter Brian was amazing. He created a very personal experience and took our evening to the next level. The food could not have been better. Literally the best Delmonico steak on the planet with truffle butter. … To die for! I can’t say enough nice things about this place!

Awesome location in a very cool building - think Great Gatsby style steakhouse with rich dark woods, marble, and high ceilings. The service was great and everything came out timely and at the temperature it should be. The food was delicious and there was a very nice cocktail menu and wine list. I highly recommend!!

Honestly had such a fabulous first experience at Butcher and Singer. I felt like I was swept away to a different Era. Amazing follow through of the concept of old time steakhouse. Absolutely breathtaking interior.
The food is to die for. And I say this a person who very rarely eats meat. I laughed as I took my first bite because I just couldn’t believe how good everything was. Our seafood appetizers also were so fresh and delicious. Incredibly friendly staff and our server made us feel comfortable for being in such a fancy place! Also, loved the fun twists on a lot of classic cocktails. I cannot wait to come back!
