My wife and I were looking for a good restaurant to celebrate/commiserate the last evening of our lovely holiday in USA and Canada before flying home the next day and, by golly, did we find it 😊 Service was great, food was grand, ambiance splendid - we had a terrific dinner and a very pleasant evening.

Okay atmosphere-- didn't realize this was essential a "hotel restaurant." Wish the service was more attentive for the price. Requested to sit in the vault, was denied.

A good friend and I ate hear last Saturday prior to the Joshua Ruiz fight at MSG. I may have had a better meal in my life, But I can't remember when. The service was quick and receptive. Our waiter was outstanding and spoke with confidence of his food knowledge. This is nitpicking but a more comprehensive list of their distilled spirits would be great; i.e their list comprised their Scotch, Bourbon and Rum. Tequilla wouldve been nice to see. Also they could add a few more Bourbons above the mid range level. All and all my buddy and I have an amazing experience here and will asbolutely return.

I ordered steak medium rare, and it came out medium. My friend had filet mignon and was a thin meat; usually it comes out very thick. Drinks were good; shrimp cocktail excellent. Prices a bit high for the caliber.

Juan Miguel took amazing care of my husband and me. We were in town for our wedding anniversary and chose Butcher and Banker based on a friend’s recommendation and were not disappointed! From the moment we sat down Juan Miguel was attentive and helpful. We asked for several suggestions. We were torn between oyster choices; he preferred the Blue Island and we loved them! The wine list was daunting with so many wonderful selections. He recommended the Flanagan Cabernet. It was one of the best Cabs we have ever had and paired perfectly with the delmonico we chose. After dinner, we were contemplating a digestif. He recommended the Dapper Banker, which my husband had to start the evening and enjoyed very much. We opted for a simple shot of The Balvenie Caribbean cask, but I’m sure we would have enjoyed his choice! Throughout the evening were more than looked after. We can assure you, we will be back!

There are plenty of expensive steakhouses in midtown that know how to cook a good steak unfortunately Butcher and Banker isn’t one of them.
Not only that but the staff have no clue about the menu and have a difficult time recommending items other than the porter house. Avoid this place like the plague! This is a picture of my medium cooked steak! (Rare)

What a nice surprise, I read the reviews and decided to take a chance. I am glad I did. Everyone enjoyed their meals, steaks were of excellent quality. The bank vault room was a hit with our guests and it is incredibly convenient given it is right behind Penn Station.

Very pleased overall with our decision to dine here.

It’s in the basement, so the signal is not the best down there. Dishes were a little bit heavy, but the beef and all other ingredients are indeed with good quality.
Great dining environment and service as well!

The food was outstanding we had the Maryland lump crab cake for starter it was phenomenal. The steak was cooked perfectly with a nice crust on the outside and juicy in the middle. The desserts were really good also. The cocktails are really good here too.
The only bad thing I can say is that the waiter messed up our starter order and then also messed up our bill. That aside I would reccomend this place, its has a cosy feel and is also unique as its inside a bank vault.

Huge portions, which is obviously a plus however the main (which we shared between two people, which is what you are meant to do) was too much in portion size even for us and we eat alot. I didn't feel abit poorly the next day but that was likely because I forced myself to eat as much as I could. I'd recommend sharing this between 3 to 4 people. Other than that food and service was amazing

Best kept secret in NYC but, the word is getting out. Food is outstanding. Service is warm and welcoming. ....And, it's a really nice place. It's the old M & T bank Vault.
It's small, cozy and fun.

Very nice restaurant, pleasantly surprised. Met my wife for an early dinner and choose this place because it was close to Penn. The food was really good, very tasty and what you would expect from a NYC steakhouse. Our waitress was very attentive and always around. The ambiance was pretty nice, we sat in the main dining room as opposed to the vault (which is a pretty cool novelty) and tables were comfortable (they weren't on top of each other). Great find, great date night.

There are two separate areas, one is the vault, lined with deposit boxes and then there is the larger dining room which may be a little noisier. The vault tends to be quieter and more intimate. Service is efficient, friendly and good. The food is very good with the steaks and meat, obviously being the best choices. The wine list is good if a little on the pricey side. All in all this is a very pleasant place with good food and service, what more could one want? I think the unique atmosphere of the vault behind the hugs bank door adds something to the place.

Honestly, what a phenomenal hidden gem inside of Manhattan! I hate to give up my secret but this is too good to be selfish about. Usually when there is a cool or novel atmosphere, the food is compromised. I can confirm that my picky self of over 12 years in hospitality was blown away by the customer service, decadent food of every course, and the talent of mixology of cocktails. 2849/10 would take my parents here to flex on my Manhattan knowledge. If you can request Juan Miguel, do it!

We chose this restaurant because we wanted a nice steak dinner but wanted something that wasn’t the typical high end chain restaurant. We were a little leery but decided to go for it! The service, food and ambiance was all on point and we were not disappointed! It’s definitely a place we would recommend. Prices are reflective of the quality. Check this place out next time you’re in NYC.
