Superb service and great food... what could be better? We started with a couple drinks and the charcuterie board... fish tacos and chicken with green, potatoes and carrots followed. God was well-prepared and tasty. A wonderful experience.

Love the outdoor seating. The menu is varied and excellent. Atmosphere is great aside from an occasional loud truck that rumbles by on the street nearby. Sharing a dessert with my spouse was a great ending to the meal.

The food is consistently good. The service is consistently lacking. Everything else: menu, price, ambiance is good enough to overcome the choppy service which is why I continue to go back.

Outside dining was so great! Heat lamps, well-distanced from others and great set up. The staff was amazing. Food is always delicious but it tasted even better since we haven't been out a lot during Covid. Go before it gets too cold. Such a great night out.

This was our first dinner at Buttercup and we will be back. Fast, pleasant service. Food was great. We sat outside and we were close enough to the heater to be warm enough. Highly recommend Buttercup for great food in the Western suburbs.

Our first time to Buttercup and we loved it! Large outdoor patio with table spacing and protocols in place for covid restrictions. Our server was excellent, prompt, knowledgeable and friendly. The food was absolutely delicious - the halibut may very well be the best I have ever had! We are thrilled to have dined at Buttercup and can’t wait to go back, and/or get takeout sometime!

I met a friend for dinner. This was my first time there. Food was fantastic. I had the cornbread appetizer and it was delicious. My dinner (scallops) was equally delicious. My friend had the baby back ribs which were cooked to perfection. The staff was appropriately attentive and did not make us seemed rushed. Overall a nice experience. I liked it so much that I am going back on Saturday, October 17th.

Dined outdoors. Felt very safe with all appropriate Covid protocols. Service (Joanie) was lovely. Food and drink were very good. Just a tad pricey, but worth while for a special occasion!

This was a birthday dinner for myself and I couldn't have been happier. I had a horrible dinner the night before elsewhere and tried Buttercup to redeem my special day. What a fabulous spot!!!! I was treated phenomenally without judgement for being a solo diner. My server, Ashley, was thorough without being pushy and showed no "pity" towards me. The food was amazing. Just frigging amazing!!! I had the Spicy Mussels which were the best I've ever eaten. The coconut curry needed bread to soak up every last drop. The prosciutto with burrata was to die for. The basil and balsamic were genius and something I'll try at home. I took the Fish tacos home for a great breakfast the next day!!! I will keep coming back to this gem in Natick!!! Thank you for a wonderful meal.

We sat outside and it was beautiful. The food was great. Cocktails were ok. The only negative was the diners waiting to be seated all standing in front of the restaurant right in front of us. Very distracting. We were celebrating my sons birthday.

Arrived on time and was told that we could not sit outside. At first I thought she couldn’t find my reservation. She finally put a southside but asked that we finish our meal inside an hour. We had the cornbread appetizer, the salad with blue cheese and nectarines, my daughter and I both split the short rib pappardalle. Great food we were gone in 45 minutes.

I know we’re going against the norm here, but our experience (food wise) was just “okay”. The service was great, from the hostess desk to our table, warm & welcoming. The food was okay, not bad, but not extraordinary. Portions were small. The flank steak was tasty, but overly salted. The quail was equally tasty, but the accompaniments were not. Key lime pomegranate pie was delicious. The wine selections were underwhelming & pour was stingy. All in all it was an okay experience but we likely won’t be back.

We've been to Buttercup a few times and it gets better each time. That's not to say they needed to improve anything. It's just that they add to the menu something more delicious each time. The service was perfect and the price is right. Fine Boston dining without the travel!
