Incredible food and atmosphere, would highly recommend for any special occasion!
Second time at trying this out. Chef Alex is great on TV and social media, however, service and food were sub-par and it was disappointing.
Fantastic dinner! Dining at Butter was a highlight - service was beyond fantastic, food as well, drinks amazing.
Food delicious but a little salty
Went here after following the chef and the restaurant on instagram for months. It definitely didn’t disappoint! The steak was one of the best I’ve ever had, and the raspberry beignets with vanilla bean dipping sauce were decadent and a perfect dessert to end the meal. I am usually disappointed when I hold a place to such high standards, but the ambience, decor and overall charm of Butter truly went about my expectations.
I really enjoyed my experience at Butter. To begin with the restaurant setting is beautiful. It creates a cozy atmosphere for groups. The booths are nice and large so they can definitely fit a group of 6-8 comfortably. I went for the brunch before attending a play. The location of Butter made it convenient to go to before heading to our show. I also liked the brunch spread. My favorite items were the Gnocchi Mac and Cheese (like eating little clouds) and the cured salmon. I intend on returning to Butter to try their lunch or dinner one day, hopefully soon!
Beautiful dining room, but food was a notch below excellent - halibut was dry and salty, beet salad was ordinary, oysters good but not stellar.
My best friend and I had a wonderful time at Butter Midtown. The staff was friendly and we were seated right away. We ordered the purple paradise cocktail and the gnocchi mac and cheese to start. The mac and cheese will change your life. Seriously, you need to try it. For our entree we had that evening’s special, braised beef short rib ragu with mozzarella mashed potatoes which was also very yummy. What tipped our experience from very good to outstanding was the servers thoughtfulness. When dessert arrived he had placed a candle on the plate and brought champagne, on the house, to help us celebrate our birthdays. Oh, and the raspberry beignets with vanilla dipping sauce are not to be missed.
Amazing! Took my best friend for his 40th birthday and we both loved the service and the food! His birthday was acknowledged by the waitstaff quietly as he does not like a big to-do.
Our overall experience was very nice. Food was awesome, service was very friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful time celebrating our daughter’s Sweet 16 there!!
Delicious NY Strip Steak and raspberry beignets for dessert. Amazing.
Came for our anniversary in NYC, and because I’m a huge Alex fan. The food did not disappoint, and they treated us to Prosecco for our anniversary. You’re always the best, Alex!!!
While in NYC for a fun trip with my adult sons, we dined at Butter for dinner. Everything we ate was delicious. The beignets for dessert were heavenly.
The wine soaked portobellos and key lime pie were absolutely delicious!
One of the best dining experiences of my life! An Iron chef restaurant is expected to be good but this one is INSANELY GOOD! Best NY strip I've ever had and the halibut dish with geechie grits is to die for!
I flew from South Carolina to New York to mark this restaurant off my bucket list, and it was worth every mile. I can't wait to come back.
Had been wanting to go to Butter since I booked my flight to New York City. Reservations were quite easy to make. My 13 y/o felt out of place (no young people there). I had the salmon and it was delicious. The beignets I've seen posted on Instagram and I knew I had to try them...I died and went to heaven! Fluffy and warm with the right amount of sugar and filling inside! The vanilla cream you get to dip it in was a dream. I even got some to go back to the hotel with! It was amazing.
Absolutely amazing. The gnocchi Mac and cheese was seriously the best thing I’ve ever eaten!
PROS: The food was COMPLETELY AMAZING. Fantastic flavors and beautiful presentation. My friend ordered a mixed drink and said it was the best one she had ever had. The ambiance was cool and modern but cozy. CONS: You pay for what you get... so be prepared for high prices. (a $44 pork chop... Ouch.) The air conditioning was annoyingly blowing directly on us, and one person was very cold through the meal. We asked the staff about it but they were unable to fix the situation. The noise level made conversation difficult without raised voices.
I have been to Butter countless times over the last several years. This past experience was awful. The service was poor and the food was terrible. An absolute waste of money. I am so disappointed after so many positive experiences at Butter. I am not certain what has been done to the food, service personnel or management but please fix it. I can't believe I had to pay for such awful food and service.
Interesting menu the squash was delicious salad interesting good place for lunch
I was so excited to be going to NYC and be able to try Butter-Midtown. I love Alex Guarnaschelli on the food network and she did not disappoint. From appetizers to dessert, each course was better than the next. Thank you chef!
visiting nyc, my wife really wanted to eat here. service was top notch. food was a 5, of course $$, but well worth it. it is a dinner we will remember.
Great experience all the way around. The veal bacon was delicious and we loved the slight tanginess to the sauce. The grits and peppers with the Halibut just made the fish an excellent choice.
I got scallops, just warm. Could have warmer. Husband had pork chop. Excellent , BUT no starch no veg. Just a nice pork chop in the middle of a big plate!
I had been looking forward to trying Alex’s restaurant given her accolades on the food network. Unfortunately I have to agree with many other reviews in that it was good, but nothing memorable. The service was fair but we were never told about any specials and I believe there were some as I overheard another table being told about one after we had our mains. We had the civatappi pasta and octopus appetizers which were both quite good and better than our main courses. For our mains we ordered the lamb schnitzel and the chicken - both were just Ok. I will say that the portion sizes are very large so you do not leave hungry whatsoever. I do think it is overpriced though, despite the large portions. Overall a little bit disappointed and I won’t be going back.
Great food and great service!
I loved everything about Butter! My friends and I split a few apps, salads, and hot plates. Everything was delicious. Can’t wait to go back!
We enjoyed our meal. The gnocchi Mac & cheese was fab! The Brussel Sprout salad was excellent!
The food is exceptional. The noise level is also extraordinary high.
Outstanding ambiance, fantastic service and overall wonderful place.
Good. Would teturn
Gnocchi mac & cheese was incredible, don't leave here without at least one for the table! Very reasonable options for bottles of wine. Had a great meal overall!
The appetizer of thick-cut veal bacon (a new one on me, but veal belly, actually) was sensationally good. But the burger was standard fare only, and the accompanying fries room temp. Dessert of key lime pie was also sensational, though unconscionably tiny for the price. My drink of a perported mix of tequila and mezcal was delicious, but contained very little alcohol.
We had a booth that was both private and comfortable. One warning: the lunch menu is small, quite limited.
BUTTER has been on my bucket list and it did not disappoint! I absolutely loved Guarnaschelli‘s food here. The portabella mushroom sandwich was outstabding. I love her use of acid throughout the meal. Thank you!
Service excelled until food arrived. One check back, but too late because we requested dressing on side but our entree salad canes dresses. And the wait for the check was eternal. Other than that, good. I’d go back.
The most disappointing restaurant experience in our week of travel. Butter was my top pick & we saved you for our last dinner in NYC, but you fell short of every other place we dined, significantly.
We arrived a little early and were seated right away. For a 7pm reservation, the place was fairly empty. It took nearly 15 min before we were acknowledged- & that was a sweet kid offering water. Once our server rolled around, we were asked what we wanted to order to drink. No hello or welcome- simply “what do you want?” We placed an order for a cocktail but before our beverage arrived we were asked what we wanted for dinner. Not if we had any questions or if we needed a moment, just “what do you want to order”. Our waiter muttered something about a salmon special- unenthusiastically speaking & looking in the opposite direction of us. At this point we are nearly 30 min & not a whole lot of enjoyment into our experience. We ordered 2 appetizers and 2 entrees. After orders were in, our cocktail arrived. Eventually bread arrived followed by our appetizers. Gnocchi Mac and cheese & a pasta, both excellent. Our server did not once check to see how this course was, only asking if it was good when he picked up the empty dishes.
The entree course was prompt given the timeline of the night. Both were well executed but one over seasoned and the other not at all. We would have asked for a salt shaker but our server never came back to check on us. When he did pop in, we asked for the check. When asked what was wrong, we cited the entrees as the fault of our unhappiness but honestly, it was our server.
I could see him talk to a manager who then breezed past us. A dessert & champagne landed on our table. No warmth or explanation, no check & no visit from a manager.
As a training manager in the industry-I know the importance of great service. Promote the kid, with the right training he will be great! A refresher for management is a good idea too- if you want to stay open.
One word: MAC AND CHEESE GNOCCHI. Oops - that's 4 words. Try this - UNBELIEVABLE. Because that's what the Mac and Cheese gnocchi was. Absolutely yummy - go get some before it's removed from the appetizer menu! We also enjoyed the bread and messy raspberry beignets (though I wish the dipping creme was warmed). The halibut and steak were solid, very good - but not the best we've ever had. We are not locals (from CA) and this is our 3rd visit to Butter - it's my 18 year old daughter's favorite place. A little quiet for my liking, but always a good meal.
The staff were friendly enough, our only gripes were that the bartender wasn’t particularly friendly and given the format of the menu, our waiter didn’t think to mention that we hadn’t ordered sides with our mains, which we regretted. The plates we tried, albeit not horrible, were also not memorable. We had hoped we would’ve seen more creativity being that an ‘iron chef’ has their name on the menu, but we felt the format of the menu lacking and leaving much to be desired. For the price, the value isn’t there. $50 for a steak we felt was under seasoned with zero sides... not worth it. I’d gladly pay more for dishes that were more creative and explore my palette as a diner. The space is very nice. Very clean setting that would have been perfect had it not been for the incredibly loud 90’s hip hop and pop music playing. There were moments when the music was so loud several patrons had to ask for the volume to be turned down. Overall, I think this was a nice bar that sold really expensive food. Good for pre-game, but I wouldn’t have high hopes on dinner.
Waiters should be a tad more professional, less relaxed. Music maybe more chill, loungelike.
