Food was good some was exceptional nice portions. Prices were high.
Fantastic. Thanks very much for a great evening
Starting with the menu. Disappointed with the lack of choices. I had the Chicken Waldorf Salad. Fried chicken was OK but rest was disappointing. My associate had the chicken Milanese. Dried piece of chicken with a bit of frisee salad. Overall very disappointing and way too much money for what we got.
Perfection all around
The food was absolutely astounding. The pork chop I ordered was quite literally the best I have ever had. Our server was wonderful, answered all of our questions, and had some great recommendations for drinks and food. I cannot say enough good things about Butter and will be looking forward to my next visit.
Pre show dinner. Everything was awesome! Food was amazing, service was friendly and right on without too much checking in. The ambiance and design of the restaurant is wonderful. Thank you Butter Midtown for a wonderful evening!!!!!
I was there for a networking meeting. I would have given Butter higher marks but the service was too slow. By the time the main course cam for me and my guess it had been 1 hour. I at least had an appetizer to hold me over but my guess had not. It was the longest wait I’ve ever had and it didn’t seem overly busy.
Our server was fine. Service model horrible. Did not get order wine without asking after appetizer delivered. Did not get dessert without asking.
Professional gracious attentive service. Shout out to Visar and Sergio. Food never disappoints. Exceptional execution. Shout out to kitchen crew up and down the line and the genius of Chef Michael J. Establishment well run with coherence organization and style. Shout out to GM Lauren and AGM Tony. From start ( aperol spritz) to finish ( beignets ) mixologist and pastry/desert/bread chefs ( looking at you both Kevin and Stephanie) closed the loop of this magnificent luxurious and indulgent gastronomical experience.
And that was just lunch....
One can only wonder how much more of an epicurean experience dinner will be.
Butter Midtown is a must try restaurant if you are in New York City. The staff was super friendly and everything we tried was amazing. I highly recommend the Tomatoes and watermelon salad as well as the Gnocchi Mac N Cheese.
Great brunch. There were only a few other people there. We practically had the place to ourselves.
Great dinner, outstanding daily specials well presented by our server. Food was outstanding.
Great location for pre theater. More upscale than most restaurants in theater district.
Wonderful experience - everything was perfect! ... from the hostess & bartender to all the wait staff
Food was perfect
Dinner started well, appetizers and salad were outstanding, but the meals were less than what we expected for the reputation of Butter. The evening's special, halibut and uni spaghetti, came out clumpy and somewhat of a mush. The pasta was not al dente and the presentation resembled a pyramid of gruel. The pan-roasted chicken breast was ample and excellent, but the accompanying broccoli rabe was bitter and difficult to enjoy. I recommend the Akkadian Empire drink for something novel, but drink it quickly as it waters down and leaves you with a diluted flavor at the end.
We were headed to a play so just got a few apps. The oysters were very fresh.did not care for the octopus but it was cooked very well. The bread and Butter are sinful.
Delicious corn chowder. Great branzino. Pleasant dessert. Price fix lunch a good value in a nice atmosphere.
Ok, ICAG is an Iron Chef cause she is truly that food! I made arrangements to have a business dinner at Butter. My word the apps were mine blowing. We had all the cold apps and the “Mac and Cheese”. How do you make oysters taste better. Well let Alex provide the pop. I had to let everyone try my Bronzino cause yes it was just that good. The tobacco smoked pork chops, the short ribs were also outstanding. And yes tobacco smoked, who would have thought! On to desert.. the beignets were the best ever. New Orleans can be taught. The tiramisu was awesome. I had the short bread. Well, that surely was not what I mad with my Mom so many years ago. It was a flavor explosion. Texture and flavor outstanding. Needless to say we all shared cause it was just that good.
We were doubly blessed as Alex was able to stop by our table. And yes Alex is as fun to talk to as she seems on the food network.
I can only hope that Alex is Blessed in a mighty way. What a talented chef!
Oh and Wow. Meal to remember.
For this being the restaurant of a celebrity chef, I was extremely underwhelmed. The food was...fine. It wasn’t horrible, but it was not at the level I was expecting. Way too overpriced for what it was. My chicken was dry. They took our bread away before we were finished without asking.
I have been to Butter a few times and the food is consistently very good. Bright flavors (this may have been a bit more of a summer type menu) and nice combinations of herbs, spices, and light sauces. I had the lunch prix fixe (a lovely, but small, fresh shrimp salad, a delicious sea bass on a light corn salad, and a spice bread/cake with a dollop of berry ice cream), which was a good deal. And I was there for a late lunch so the room was pretty empty, but it would be good for conversation or a work lunch.
Food is good. Service is not attentive. Noisy. Decoration is just ok.
Amazing food as expected. Arguably the best porkchop of my life and the cheesecake was incredible too.
Excellent from start to finish! The food is divine, the ambience is special, and the service is top notch.
Was so excited to try butter and it did not disappoint. Everyone’s meals were top shelf esp the beignets !
The food was excellent. My husband and daughter had different cuts of beef which they enjoyed. I had hazelnut ravioli which was wonderful. The service could be improved. We were kind of rushed along. Also, our server was very nice, but knocked over a full glass of water on our table and she seemed rather nervous and uncomfortable the entire time.
Great food, service, and atmosphere. Ample portions
In a nutshell, I found this place very standard. My food was ok but not remarkable. The appetizers were not exciting and dessert was disappointing. I will not go back.
This was an overall awful experience. A lunch reservation for people in suits in midtown is obviously a work lunch, so to be told that my clients and I have to wait until our entire party (one additional to make a total of four) arrives is ridiculous and embarrassing. Then to be told by a sloppy, young hostess that all of our orders need to be in and no additional orders can be made before we were even seated was outrageous. What kind of establishment is this? The entryway was filthy with stains on the carpet, and a tacky home improvement television show was displayed in the lobby.
The servers were confused. People in the entire section were receiving wrong orders, food was late, it was awful.
Never, ever again and I will actively discourage anyone in our firm to dine there.
First time at Butter. Meal was delicious! We ordered 3 different entrees...salmon, chicken, and the cauliflower. Each were cooked perfectly. The salmon was flaky and moist; the chicken was juicy and tender; the cauliflower was the surprise of the evening! If you like cauliflower, get this...the coconut flavoring was right on par. For dessert we shared the poached pears and the chocolate ganache covered shortbread...perfect balance of pears with the coconut ice cream and the shortbread tasted like a very rich, velvety Twix bar. Would definitely dine here again!
I go to Butter quite frequently but this was my first really bad, poor service, overpriced meal. Terribly disappointed.
Excellent and unusual food choices. Our waiter was the best!
Great atmosphere fun to order a variety off the menu and share with table
Everything was so, so delicious! The homemade rolls w sea salt were divine! The buratta salad as well as the tomato and watermelon salad were both fresh and yummy. We enjoyed our branzino and chicken entrees! 5 stars all around!
We were visiting NYC from out of town for a family member’s birthday. We were excited to celebrate at Butter; however, the experience was not great. We were told at arrival they would not be able to accommodate our 2 year old son with a high chair. The waitress advised we could have our two year old sit in the corner of a booth and that “most people don’t bring children to the restaurant.” The remark was a distasteful way to start off the evening, especially when we looked around and there were about 8 other children with their families in the restaurant. If you don’t want to accommodate families, make it known in advance. We even called ahead and confirmed with the hostess he would be accommodated. The food is good here but the service was terrible. Our waitress did not have familiarity with the menu and couldn’t answer basic questions. Not a great experience, and I couldn’t wait to leave this restaurant. Our family and son was so well taken care of at Cafe Boulud. Go spend your money there instead.
We were slightly disappointed with the portion sizes on 3 of the 4 dishes we ordered. I had the Branzino and I'm sorry but the dish was under seasoned and needed salt. I was shocked at that given the fact that the owner is on TV all of the time telling various contestants they need to add salt to their food. I shouldn't have had to ask for salt. ( I realize she doesn't actually do the cooking). It was my 50th birthday celebration with my husband and another couple and we enjoyed the restaurant itself. Comfortable seating and beautiful décor. The server was nice enough. The cocktails were good. The food was all good enough.. but nothing that said WOW! I did leave the restaurant knowing I would be hungry within two hours and I was correct.
The service was poor. We had a reservation at 5:15 and didn't receive our cocktail until almost 6:00. The food was mediocre for the most part. We ordered tiramisu for dessert and the lady fingers were hard, there was barely any cream, and there was an overabundance of what seemed like pulverized oreos. What a disgrace. The crispy duck wasn't crispy. The rosemary salt potatoes didn't have much if any rosemary and were not salt potatoes. We dined at 3 other Michelin star restaurants and paid significantly less for each of those meals that were significantly better on all fronts. Alex should disassociate herself from this restaurant!
The food was fabulous, the tobacco smoked pork chop was to die for. Our service was fabulous, Victoria was amazing. The whole experience was perfect!
Went for lunch and The food was ok nothing spectacular will try again for a dinner before I completely write it off
Butter came very highly recommended but was a real disappointment. The services started very slow and the waiter tried to rush our order. The food very very average, mine came out cold and my salad lettuce was wilted. We did come fairly late, 8:30, but that should not have resulted in our experience.
Fresh yummy food.
I had never experienced what the true flavors of food could be.
Octopus and squid ink pasta - the softest octopus and so flavorful.
Potato gnocchi with cheese - of my goodness; little pillows of flavor.
Tobacco smoked pork chops - incredible.
You know a place is good when you can enjoy in the moment and leftovers maintain the flavor and integrity of the dish.
Very attentive and professional staff.
Definitely a “bucket list” experience 👍🏻
