Great service and fantastic food. Highly recommend this restaurant.
We tried the empanada as an appetizer. It was the best we have ever had. The fresh mozzarella with the tomato and basil was perfect. I had the filet with the mushrooms and two side. All of it was cooked perfect. The filet was tender. My husband had the chicken that was flattened and fried. The chicken was crispy, not greasy at all. The waitress was informative since this was our first visit. We would love to return.
Service was excellent, perhaps the best service we’ve had in the past couple years (and we dine out a lot). Food was also excellent. Best empanadas I’ve had. The sampler plate had a huge portion of steak and sausage. Good wine too, although the markup was a little high in my opinion. Would absolutely return and would recommend to friends.
The ambiance is great here. We had a Saturday reservation for 6:30 and there were only maybe a handful of other tables occupied. They had a great wine list though we did not see many options for those who prefer sweeter varieties. The sangria was good for us though. The food was AMAZING and so filling. I definitely hope to go back and try more of their dishes. Staff was super friendly and helpful, especially the host. We were seated promptly and our waitress was very helpful with recommendations. We were celebrating my best friend birthday and neither of us had any complaints!
Great food and great service. The empanadas are a must!
Very good service and very fine food. The Argentine twist on the food was different and excellent.
Outstanding service and cuisine. Everything was delicious. No disappointments, all delighters!
We picked this restaurant because it was close to our hotel and we were pleasantly surprised by how great everything was. We were greeted warmly when we arrived and our table was all ready for us, including a high chair for our baby. Our server was also wonderful & very knowledgeable about the menu.
We have visited Butcher and Barrel several times and have never been disappointed. The food is inventive and portioned well. Our favorite is the short ribs over gnocchi and spinach in a truffle cream sauce. The service staff always seem genuinely pleased that we have chosen their restaurant for our dining experience. The abundant stone of the central bar, the dark wood and leather in the dining areas, and the warm glow of the lighting makes Butcher and Barrel a cozy, fun, place to enjoy memorable food, delicious drinks and easy to hear conversation.
There was a nice selection of dishes, reasonably prices, and all were very tasty. The service was very good, and best of all, it was quiet enough so the five of us could hear each other talk over dinner. We've been there before and will certainly come back again.
Food was excellent, especially the short ribs and dessert
Excellent food and great service
This was our second time visiting here, first since they changed the menu. Everything was delicious. When our meals came out I ordered the filet. Clearly what I was brought was the wrong steak, no big deal right? Well when I told our server that it was wrong, she told me that they cut if differently and that it was correct. When the bartender brought over our drink and asked how everything was, I told her I ordered the filet and she said, clearly they brought me a ribeye! Our server took it back, and brought me a perfectly cooked filet, once the rest of our party was finished eating. Not that it was a big deal because the food was great, but nobody ever came over to apologize for the inconvenience. When the bill was brought out to us, the ribeye was rung in and then cancelled out. So our server did make a mistake and rung in the wrong steak, yet told me I was wrong. Besides the customer service falling short, the food is excellent.
My wife and I had a wonderful evening. The food was exceptional and the service was outstanding. Ben the sommelier came over to the table and in a very non-pretentious way discussed wine and made evening great. Really a wonderful experience
Delicious food and great service! The steaks were amazing and the sides were wonderful.
Consistently great food and service. Highly recommend.
Food was excellent. Service was poor, appetizer was brought out with the meal and we were given a very curt reason why. A simple request of dressing on the side was missed and required a redo and further wait.
The restaurant wasn’t very crowded the evening we dined. Overall the food and service were great. I would definitely Gnocchi with Braised Short Rib!
Very attractive selection of foods for all tastes and diets. Portions are generous and the presentation is appetizing and not pretentious. Wine and drink choices are broad and tasty.
The food was most excellent! 10/10 will come back and eat again.
This is our favorite restaurant. We try to get here at least once a week. The food is consistently terrific and the service is impeccable. The staff treat you like family, and the food is superb. I highly recommend that you visit the Butcher & Barrel soon!
Great time at B&B. Food was great. Service was excellent. Would love to eat there again, soon!
Great place to dine. Waitress was great and food was exceptional!
Atmosphere was nice and food was good. We went there for our anniversary which we stated when reserving our reservation so I assumed maybe they did a dessert or something but it was never brought up or mentioned. The dish I tried was Canelones which was okay but I would not get again and my husband went with steak. We would go back again as it was a nice restaurant, it was quiet and not very busy.
The service was horrible our server was MIA most of the time and when it came time to bring our checks we waited at minimum 20 minutes for her to even come back to our table to request them. Then she split our starters equally among the table without asking, including a single person getting and equal share and a couple that didn’t have any of them. But the checks weren’t even right before that. One person ordered an empanada as a starter and it wasn’t brought until the rest of their dinner was served. My husband and I ordered ribeye and truffle masked potatoes. They were so over flavored with truffle it basically ruined everything else and even effected the flavor of the drinks we had an hour later. The Brussels sprouts were mushy and greasy. This was the second time we’ve eaten there and it was a complete 180 by comparison
Smoked pork empanadas were awesome. The blueberry goat cheese salad was heaven. A little pricey, but overall delicious.
Excellent food with even better service. Menu is great for sharing with the table.
Everything was very good. Excellent service and the wine was spot on. The empanadas were pretty much perfect and the chimichurri was great.
We went for a late Mother's Day lunch (when they are normally closed). The service was terrific-very friendly. We tried lots of different meats/sausages. The Blood Sausage is not to my liking....but the Empenadas are terrific.
I would recommend this place for dinner with friends.
Very delicious steak!! Yummy sides. Loved the Brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes!! Tasty cocktails too! Great service. Really enjoyed it!
Excellent pasta choices and excellent drink choices ! Great service :)
Food was outstanding and service was very good. We had a very nice quiet dinner before our show at the Aronoff.
Food was fanominal, especially the empanadas! Our waitress was wonderful. Highly recommend.
We were looking for a place we had never been and in the process found a place we'll be back to over and over. The food, service and atmosphere was perfect. My family really enjoyed the experience. Our waitress Molly was outstanding. Very personable, informative, engaging, fun and just a very nice person. She was just awesome! I would highly recommend eating here. 5 stars, better than I was expecting. Thank you for a wonderful night out with my family.
We went to Butcher & Barrel before a play at the Aronoff. We had a terrific experience. The food was outstanding and our waitress was delightful. I would highly recommend!
Waiter was awesome ,great food! We will be back when we are in Cincinnati
Great Steak! We had a wonderful time there and the atmosphere is great!
Nice experience downtown. Somewhat limited menu but all prepared well and good quality. Gnocchi with shortrib was outstanding. Steaks and burgers very good.
