Last meal at Butterfly in SF, RIP. Thank you Chef Lam for the awesome memories the last 16 years. SF won't be the same without this fine restaurant and its ambiance. I love those sea urchin chandeliers!
had hard time reading the menu, since it was so dark.. took awhile before waiter to greet us ..
took awhile between service of food items ..
It is a shame that this restaurant is now closed. It was very romantic!
The food was fabulous as it always is. The calamari is to die for. The duck confit spring rolls are to kill for. The Shanghai Noodles, surf and turf style are not to be missed and the catfish was outstanding. We are so sorry to see the closing of Butterfly but we know Chef Rob Lam is moving on to a wondrous new project! And we wish him All the Best!
They were closed!!!!!!!!!!!
Overall it was an awesome experience although I am vegetarian and the menu does not have a big list to choose from.
Butterfly has a very limited menu with very few choices that aren't "fried". It's not a healthy menu at all. It's also way overpriced - $42 for a 1 lb fried fish - really?
The ambience is great - right on the water and the service was very good, but I can not recommend this restaurant because it is so overpriced and the food, although OK, is not exceptional.
Service wasn't very good. For the first 20 minutes we were completely ignored. Had to ask for water and wine list. Waited another 0 minutes and than was brought the wrong wine. Our waiter didn't seem to know what was going on...our food was pretty tasty, but for me it wasn't the best Christmas Eve because of the way we ignored at first and the overall service.
Simply wonderful! Beautiful setting, marvelous food, excellent service.
Our office is local to Butterfly and we really enjoy this place and the sister Poke joint; Sammy's Aloha. The food is good, the Ahi/Poke is excellent, the owner/Chef is fantastic and the staff are SO accommodating. We love this place. Beautiful view out of the huge windows as well.
