Never disappointed going here to eat here
Always take friends and family here and it's always a hit. Wish they had more gluten free options. Especially in the dessert depatment.

Food was okay. For the price I would have expected better. The restaurant needs renovation. The wall I sat next too was disgusting and needed paint. The ceiling tiles in the drop ceiling had mold on then. The house Cabernet that I paid ten dollars a glass for came out of a $6 bottle. Unless the place makes some major changes we will not go back.

I have been to Butera's many times before and have found it to be consistent and a good experience. I don't typically go out on Valentine's Day and so perhaps it was the chaos of the day that led to this disaster. We made a reservation on OPEN table two weeks in advance to secure a table and upon arrival were ushered to a folding table set for two ( not three) where two of us had to straddle the table legs uncomfortably. We complained and were told told there was nothing else and settled in, then were later uprooted by a nice matre'd to another spot. we ordered the goat cheese salad which we have had before- we were three people and it came literally with two pieces of goat cheese on it-but it was good. There seemed to be a big lull in service when the kitchen seemed to back up and food was not coming out. Our waitress seemed to dodge our table as our wine was gone and still no entrees. When they finally arrived they were not even hot. We skipped dessert and asked for the leftovers so my 84 year old mom could have a few dinners from them. We had basa and eggplant parm. When she got home and opened them, they turned out to be someone else's food - shrimp and a pasta dish. She was turned off to say the least. Hoping this was an anomaly !

The main courses were excellent and the service superb. The wait for our table very minimal (1/4 glass of wine) and the atmosphere pleasant. We had a small table so the staff went out of their way to create space using a table cloth over a tray & try holder- made a world of difference. Only issue was we believe a mistake was made on the shrimp appetizer - shrimp cooked great but WAY TOO much salt- lip puckering amount. We believe mistakes can happen and will definitely go back again.

The food and the service were exceptional. We had the goat cheese salad, calamari, veal parmigiano, seafood platter with merlot. What a great meal! Congratulations to the chef! Can't wait to return!

Reservation was made for a Saturday night at 5:30. Table was very cramped for a party of 6 people. We were seated across from the hostess station. It felt like they took a table for 4 and crammed 2 extra chairs in. When we asked to move to a different table, we were refused even though there were available tables at the time of the request. A misunderstanding by our waiter caused our party to basically eat in two shifts. It was a shame, because the food was excellent as always.
