This is my first review on OpenTable. I was very excited to have dinner at Butter but ended up disappointed in the food. The wait staff was terrific but my meal was mediocre. There are too many other good restaurants in NYC to enjoy a expensive meal
at and I hate wasting my time and money on a meal that wasn’t good. I will not be going back.
Food was perfection! Service was slow and inattentive, unapologetic but pleasant. The strip steak was cooked perfectly and the flavors and portions were fantastic.
Waitress Ashley? was short and sweet..not very attentive, did not want to elaborate when asked questions was annoying. Then disappeared. Manager of India descent hovered over our table like we were gonna walk out on our check ..258.00 later food quality was poor from past visit T-bone was cold, bread 3 times ask for fresh bread ..3 times we recieved the same hard cold bread..disappointing. Ask was the chef the same she said yes..maybe chef was off that day.. drinks also seemed different with the watermelon ice cubes..? Bragged about this place an entire year getting my husband to bring me back to NYC to visit..will not return anytime soon
Burger was fabulous, soup was not (one too creamy, one with broth not very tasty) and the desserts we ended up not eating. The ambiance is nice. The service? Don't seem to be happy staff.
Ate @ Bobby Flay's Gato the night before and Butter kicked, well, butt all over Gato. Maybe it was the Sunday vs. Saturday night thing, but Butter was spectacular. The truffle-oil-dressed steak my wife ordered may have been the best piece of meat either of us had ever eaten. And my branzino was perfectly cooked. Super-attentive and superb wait staff.
I love Butter and was excited to take my family there when we visited NYC. However, when we arrived, all that was available was the buffet. (Sunday) The buffet was mediocre food that is overpriced. So disappointing!
The food, the place, the drinks...EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!! This place is great!
Food was mediocre at best. I ordered the sea bass.. it was over cooked, skin was soggy and it had multiple bones. Service was average. I would have expected more from a Food Network Star, whom I actually am a big fan of.
Celebrated with me Boston College roommates at Butter for our 50th bday celebration and we loved it! Must haves on the menu are : the wedge salad (probably the best ever), pork chop, braised short rib and the sweet potato gnocci! Enjoy!
Big fan of Alex was looking forward to this dinner. Host had zero personality. Server was great as well as bussers.
Appetizers were very good
Cocktails were horrible and very unbalanced. In fact server told us this one gets sent back all the time.
Got short rib and for $45++ was a rip off and it was served ice cold.
Dessert was the best thing we had.
Left extremely dissatisfied and disappointed
This was an excellent choice for my husbands birthday dinner. The ambiance was warm and inviting, service was great and the food was delicious. My 8 year old daughter especially loved the bbq short ribs and the raspberry beignets.
The food was great except that all of the dishes they are “known for” weren’t hot. Warm, edible, tasty but not hot, which means they had been mass prepared beforehand and kept under a heat lamp or something. I would have sent them back but had a show to get to so time was limited. Other than that it was a great meal. Claire our server was knowledgable and paid close attention to our needs. I would go back I think.
We had a wonderful evening here. The staff was friendly; the service was prompt. And of course the food was delicious. The salmon was, without a doubt, the best I've eaten - highly recommend!
Food was incredible!! ICAG did not disappoint!
I was told by the server the restaurant didn’t have blue cheese.. 5 mins later the table next to me had a salad come out covered in it
Every aspect of our dinner was outstanding. I had dinner with my son a month ago and came back on Friday night with my husband. We had the pleasure of having Claire as our server. She is excellent; very knowledgeable about the menu and a lot of fun. All of the service team was great. Our dinner, once again, was amazing. Can’t wait to return.
Great food and staff. Would highly recommend it.
Great lunch, enjoyed the appetisers, entree and dessert. Prix fix was good. Lovely waitress, all the staff were very good
We came in tonight for my 30th birthday, this restaurant provides an excellent atmosphere for a special occasion or a group of friends get together. Our meal was amazing and our server was so attentive. We will definitely be returning.
Great meal as always. Restaurant wasn’t very busy and the staff was attentive! My daughter (age 12) loved introducing her friends to her favorite restaurant. One friend said “no other steak will ever compare now” and by the next day the girls were still talking about that raspberry beignets!
The food was amazing. Our server was on point. The ambience was very laid back. I’m not sure if this is the goal but it was nice. However, it seemed to take a long to time get our courses. For example, we received our appetizers, finished them and then sat there waiting for our main course. Once we finished our main course we ordered dessert. There was some confusion about our dessert but once received it was delicious. I ordered decaf coffee (it was almost 9p) to go with the dessert and our dessert course was almost over once I received the coffee. That was slightly disappointing. S I’ll 5 stars bc everything else was delightful.
The steak we ordered was really good. The truffle butter added a unique flavor to our perfectly executed steak.
We went to Sunday buffet, but I think buffet is not a good way to judge since food sitting in warming dishes is never as good as freshly prepared off the menu. Wanted to try while we were in NY so it thought it was most economical way to try Alex’s restaurant. Was not blown over, but not totally disappointed. Some items were not available when we first arrived and refilling took time. Most disappointing was the desserts available. Simply ok. Best was the gnocchi macaroni and cheese and the steak and Cesar salad. Shrimp and grits way too sweet. Maybe try lunch next time we visit NY.
I had been to the restaurant for lunch a few months ago and was good, so I went back for Sunday brunch. The brunch buffet was disappointing: food variety was limited (even then smoked salmon disappeared so fast & was not refilled until we were walking out), taste was mediocre and even coffee wasn’t that good. For $40/person, I would not go back.
Server had great energy and was just the right amount of attentive. Food had so much flavour!
Great dinner. Loved the Gnocchi Mac and Cheese! Cocktails were very good!
Excellent food and service!!
Good food excellent service.
18th birthday dinner for my daughter. Party if 4 before an 8:00 show. Server was excellent, know our schedule and accommodated us perfectly without rushing. Suggested items that took longer than normal so we would not be in a bind for time. Food was outstanding. 5 stars for sure !
My girlfriend and I went to Butter for our anniversary. On our arrival, we were immediately seated and staff was table side. Due to it being our anniversary, we were unexpectedly given complimentary champagne. We both ordered the NY strip steak. Steak was fantastic, as was the appetizer and dessert. Will definitely enjoy dinner at Butter again.
Ambiance was pleasant, noise level was low so we could have a conversation with our friends. Food was awesome. The Wedge salad was huge, brussel sprouts were yummy. We had the branding, roasted chicken and braised ribs— all were good.
We ended the dinner with the raspberry beignets which were delicious!!!!
In NYC for 4 days and hands down the BEST MEAL we had! Absolutely amazing! We had the brussel sprout salad, gnocchi mac n cheese, and the Rib Eye. Phenomenal!
It’s been years since I’ve been able to just hang out in midtown for a few days. This was my opportunity to finally enjoy an early dinner at Butter. I enjoyed the experience a great deal. The comfort of the decor, the atmosphere, fantastic service, wonderfully tasty food. I will definitely make reservations again, the next time I’m in New York.
I follow AG on IG! I was in the city for the day and needed to be at the Theatre by 7 so I was excited to get a reservation at Butter! The reviews were mixed so I kept my expectations in check. First let me say the staff was exceptional. From hostess, to bartender to waitress! High energy and easy going. Those Parker House rolls, Yumm! Now, for areas of improvement; the bar stools are made for very large people. The edges of the upholstery are not very padded and somewhat uncomfortable on your legs. We had the Mushroom Wedge, the Ribeye, Salmon, and Cavatappi Pasta. The mushroom was interesting and well cooked but other then an occasional touch of Balsamic not much flavor. Disappointing. My friend the steak was good, but nothing special. My salmon was the same. I don't usually eat salmon out, but I love fennel and that caught my eye. There was really nothing exceptional or flavorful about this dish. The fennel was actually prepared in a way that made it difficult to eat. My other friend said the Cavatappi was good. I didn't try it. There were a few things on the menu that have been featured on IG, but the rest seem rather uninspired. I would recommend someone go here, but go with minimal expectation to be wowed. Oh, the specials seemed to much alike which I found odd.
Shrimp was super salty, almost inedible. Two small iced teas plus two refills: $24. Really?
The service here is terrible. Rude people.
We were celebrating my bf bday and it was an amazing experience!
Good food and service. But wall-to-wall drunk, loud tourists/B&T crowd.
Everything was just average. The menu was not very innovative and the service was proficient and professional, but not very engaging or informative. The restaurant was loud as there was a private group in the bar area. I was expecting much more from this place.
Really good food and very helpful and attentive staff - they cooked something “off menu” for our daughter - one slight complaint was the price - a bit pricey - for example we were charged $16 for two bottles of sparkling water which were essentially from a carbonated tap - and the wine by the glass was very pricey at $18 a glass but it is NYC - would probably go back but would avoid certain overpriced items - brunch for two adults and a 5 year old came in at over $200
