    We often go to Buttercup for special occasions and once again it did not disappoint. We shared the roasted beet salad which was plenty for to share . We then shared the halibut and the duck. I preferred the duck which was served with Brussel sprouts and Mashed sweet potatoes but the halibut was also tasty. For dessert we shared the apple cranberry crisp which was a perfect ending. It was my birthday so the waiter brought out a candle (nice touch). The restaurant was full but not overly noisy. Tables were nicely spread apart. Our server was excellent -attentive but not hovering. I look forward to the next opportunity to celebrate there.

    Normally I’d give Buttercup a 5 star on everything, but we were seated at 7:30 for our 7pm reservation. And, I took home sugar cookies for dessert. I thought they must be spectacular for a simple offering at Buttercup. Nope. I’ve been recommending Buttercup, but now will add a ‘but’. Sorry.

    Buttercup is one of my favorite restaurants. I went with my son last night. Our meals were fabulous. He had the chicken main. I had the kale salad with halibut. Both were incredibly flavorful.

    What a gem! We live only 15 minutes away, but we did not know about Buttercup. The service was fantastic, and the bar drinks were so well crafted and unique. There were three of us dining in total, and two of us raved about our food. Great taste and big portions. The only disappointment was my husband's fried chicken, which was recommended by our server when he was on the fence between two dishes (it's not something he would typically order). We suspect he just chose poorly given his personal tastes. We are eager to return so he can try something different!

    Wait staff was excellent. Attentive and great with suggestions. Helped us decide on salads and dessert. I ordered the Short Ribs with pappadelli (homemade) pasta. The ribs were tender and excellent with the sauce. Pappadelli was nicely cooked - not too soft or too tough. It was delicious. My friend had the fish tacos and gobbled them up quickly he loved them so much. My other two friends had chicken breast roasted on whipped potatoes. Scrumptuous. Salads were tasty. The ricotta on the salad was creamy. We ordered specialty teas, coffee, a butterscotch pudding (which was okay) and a delicious bread pudding. Very pleased, overall, and will definitely return. No complaints.

    Overall, excellent meal. We were seated next to a large table in the bar room. The tables were close but we didn’t feel cramped. Nice wine and bar selection, I had a buffalo trace old fashion which was served with a large ice cube and a generous portion. We started with the arancini and beet appetizers. The arancini was the best I’ve ever had, the sauce was unbelievable. The beets were good, the house ricotta was light and very flavorful but I did feel this dish was slightly lacking, I couldn’t taste the champagne vinaigrette, so it was just beets and ricotta. For entrees we had the fish tacos and short rib with papperdelle pasta. Both were excellent. Will definitely dine here again.
