Steaks were great. Bottle wine list is great, but wines by glass just ok.

Would expect to be eating in the vault for the price as that’s the reason you go. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case for us. The steaks were great but overall not worthy of the overall price.

We came for our Anniversary dinner. I wrote on the note for the reason we came for when I made the reservation. However they seemed not bother to read the note and nothing special treatment we received for our anniv night. Other than that everything was fine. The server was nice.

Been to many of the NY steak houses. This place charges NY steak house prices but the quality wasn’t worth it. Steaks were over cooked and since service never asked we couldn’t fix it by the time our show at MSG started.

Went to a business dinner and it was very good. The waiter was attentive and I enjoyed the food. I was curious to see what it looked like and it did not disappoint. I likedthe bar area very much with the bank vault door. I might come here for a drink before next week's knicks game.

Ok so sometimes you find these places that nobody really knows about.... and this is it.
What a cool experience to dine in a historic bank vault. As you look at the wall of safety deposit boxes it makes you think back to a different era and what people kept in those boxes. Makes your imagination wonder. As for the food....excellent in every way. Just delicious and cooked perfectly. The mashed potatoes.....best I have had in years. Red wine reduction sauce....perfect. Only thing they need are better dark rums. As for the pricing....very fair for New York, not cheap, but not overpriced

Been to many high end steakhouses including those is Manhattan. This one certainly ranks up there. Great service food was expertly prepared just as we ordered. Liked the ambience of being in the vault of the Manny Hanny.

Came from out of town for the Macy’s Day Parade. We needed to find a place for thanksgiving and decided to pick this restaurant because they had a nice menu for thanksgiving. They gave more food than expected. The waiter was nice, but wasn’t as personable as I would have liked. The chef did make a substitution for me. The entrance was kind difficult to find. But it was cool and the setting was nice. The restaurant reminded me of a place during prohibition because it was downstairs.

Butcher & Banker was a first time experience for a birthday. The food was very good and the portions larger than expected. We really enjoyed the shrimp cocktail, New York strip and onion rings as a side. The only thing I wasn’t keen on was the ambiance. The restaurant has a cool setting in an old bank/vault. But whomever chose the girly flower wallpaper in the main dining room and the lighting....obviously doesn’t know how to warm up a space. The lighting was too bright and the space felt cold and uninviting. And super quiet. Maybe some background music would help. I think they’re trying too hard to be super fancy and it just doesn’t work.

I came on a date with my girlfriend, the food was very good.
The steaks were well executed and so were all our appetizers.
Our server was professional but he seemed irritated or wasn’t in the mood. In any case it didn’t make us feel very welcomed.

My husband and I ate here with another couple before a show at the Garden. It's a little out of the way (downstairs on the Lower Level in the New Yorker Hotel) but once you enter, it's very pretty and warm. The hostess and host were very friendly and accommodating; Service was great and the food was delicious! I would recommend the lamb rack; and the veal chop; and the chicken and the rib eye! I tasted them all and all were delicious! Hope to come back here soon!

Service was terrible, and the waiter got every order wrong. We ordered the full Monty, and the short ribs were burned. Steak ordered medium was served raw. When we told our server, he merely shook his head. Definitely not returning. Pricey and terrible

The setting is cool. But the food was all around poor. The Blue Point oysters were terrible. The tomahawk steak was first VERY underdone. And then when sent back, was way over cooked. Just a poor experience. The waiter, for as bad as the food was, was excellent. He really worked hard to make things right. He knew they were struggling in the kitchen even though it was a slow night.

The venue itself is OK although a bit subterranean. And the service is OK/Good.
But, the food, especially the steaks, is boderline inedible. My wife and I shared a strip steak and had it sliced before presentation at the table. Neither one of us was able to find a single piece of steak that was completely edible. Every single piece had tough, chewy, inedible segments.
My daughter ordered a filet and was also disappointed with its texture and taste.
At these prices we expected far better quality from our meal.
I STRONGLY recommend against this place.

Beautiful restaurant with an ambience to die for. I had the bacon appetizer which was delicious and we alo had the crab cakes with real chunky crab meat and not that Alaskan stuff. My daughter had a bone in rib eye which she said was chewy but my rib eye medallion was tasty. I would come again if only for the swank atmosphere. Waiters were attentive and drinks tasty!

We went to celebrate my mums birthday while we were on a family trip to NYC, the food was very disappointing. The tuna tartare was chewy, porterhouse steak poor, all the sides (mushrooms, carrots, spinach and rostie) all bad! Would not recommend.
They didn’t offer to take off any of the sides and the manager did not address the issue instead just took the full payment.
Zero ambiance due to terrible decor and a shortage of customers
