The steak entree should include a side. It also was smaller than the other entree we ordered (the pork chop), so it would have made sense to offer a side.
We had another great dinner at the butchers tale. Our service was great , the entire staff, really great.
Great food and service! Love the atmosphere and location of this restaurant!
We had a table for two that was way too close to other tables. There was a hair in the coleslaw, our sides were comped, which we didn’t ask for, so that part was great. My favorite, the long rib was cooked very well but lacked the flavor in the meat. The top layer was fine but it seems that the usual flavor in every bite was missing.
Still love the place, will definitely go again. The server was fantastic.
Great atmosphere, servers are all kind and great workers. Seating is too close to others, fairly loud and the food was 7/10
Good food, great service including valet. way overpriced.
The steak melts in your mouth. The Service was phenomenal.
Good hanger steak and NY cut steak, both tender and flavorful. The long rib (bone-in) is a bit too smoky and spicy. The wild mushrooms with truffle oil was superb.
Most delicious meal ever.
Everything was great… just a little loud but will definitely be back.
Our server was super friendly. The food was phenomenal. It had so much flavor. My husband and I will be going back.
Most amazing pork chop I've ever had. Love the atmosphere and drink list too! Oh and our server Tiffany did a fantastic job.
Amazing meal. Had the long rib. Incredible. Crazy tender with a spicy, sweet, caramelized flavor. Sides were crazy good too — jalapeño cornbread and the brussel sprouts — phenomenal. Do yourself a favor and go and have a great dinner.
The food was very good. They do a great job w the sausages they make and the selection and preparation of the steaks was very good. The corn bread and fried green tomatoes are really good. The service was excellent. Mary did a great job in taking great care of us throughout the evening and was really fun to talk with. She made the dinner even better! Definitely a fun place to go that was really good food.
The steak, fried tomatoes and red zin are great selections. I wish they would bring back the duck.
Dinner was incredible! Best cheesecake I’ve ever had!
Food great, the tables are way to close together I ate dinner with 20 strangers touching elbow to elbow. The guys next to me actually touched my butt with his knee it was so close. Tables so small you can't even fit dinner plates on them. Good food for way to much money. With no comfort during your meal at anytime. Don't put people 6 inches apart from each other and except to have a good time. I love my husband but I don't want his feet on top of mine durning dinner because there's no room for your legs or feet because you're packed in there so full. Space it out more so my neighbor doesn't touch me everytime they move. Will never return because cost wasn't efficient nor atmosphere.
We love this place. We visited twice when it was Butchers boar and happy to see this place back. Amazing food and place
One of the best meals I've had in my life. The long rib is absolutely amazing and they make a mean old fashion!
Wonderful restaurant, food and service was excellent. We Had 7 in our group, everyone was so satisfied with their meal choice. The server was so good, Definitely going back.
Returned to the reopened restaurant and was not disappointed. Drinks were great as was the salmon and whitefish entrees. Seating was quite tight. Good thing we are fully vaccinated.
From the starter to the dessert superb. We had Spanish Octopus, Lobster and Crab Cake and the bulgogi dog. So good. So good. So good. We then had the fish special (3 of us) and rib eye (2). Shared mushrooms, fries and cornbread. Food was so freaking delicious. Then the dessert. The hazelnut budoni so great. So good. Great night.
My fiancé and I had a wonderful experience! So much so that we will be taking my mother in-law next Friday to see what the rave is all about!
Great food, great drinks! It was spendy but worth it! Highly recommend the scallops, salmon was amazing, and loved the Buffalo Brussels. Would definitely go back!
Delicious house made sausages! Loved the sampler platter! Very attentive service, a welcome change as of lately compared to other restaurants! Thank you!
What a great dinner! We orders the wedge salad, ribeye, and pan-seared scallops (with pork belly!) and all three were delicious. Attentive, but non-intrusive service, great ambiance and music, very cool decor. We’ll definitely be back!
The food and service is fantastic! But bring the checkbook. Also, most of the meals are big enough to share family style.
Excellent experience, great food, service was very good
Great food. Service was good when the server was around. She was no as attentive as she should have been toward the end of the night
Excellent service, food and atmosphere!!!!
As long time customers of the previous establishment, it was terrific to be back in the space with same great food and atmosphere and service minus the crappy owners.
We had a very nice dinner here before an Orchestra Hall event. I was initially concerned about the close seating and number of patrons (we had a 5:45 reservation and the place was nearly full). However, this turned out to not be a problem as we could not hear our closest neighbors. The service and food is outstanding. We had the octopus/chorizo appetizer which was very tasty. We then split the ribeye steak (plenty for 2) and a couple sides. The waiter, Kathleen was very helpful and we never felt pressured or rushed. It is a bit pricey (but not for typical steakhouses) and the food was wonderful. We would go back again if in the area and there was availability.
Excellent service and food! A great choice for meat lovers!
The food, service & ambiance was one of the best experiences we have ever had! We will definitely be back.
Just out dining with our college student and wanted some good steak. Well we found it! Our server was extremely knowledgeable and made some great suggestions. The whole meal was delicious and I loved the vibe of the restaurant. Would absolutely come here again.
My fiancée and future in laws had a wonderful time at Butcher’s Tale. Our server, Mary, was so friendly and warm and was very knowledgeable about the menu. They were also attentive and hospitable, and also gave us space to enjoy our experience. I would highly recommend the Wisco Old Fashioned, it was delicious!
Terrific service at this resurrected meat centric space. The pork chop was delicious & would feed 5 easily. My husband is excited for the leftovers. Also recommend the fried green tomatoes—perfect!
The food was really outstanding. Service was excellent. Attentive, yet space was given for uninterrupted conversation. Cocktails were done really well and with precision. All in all a fantastic meal!
The staff was fabulous! Reasonable priced for a steakhouse.
The food was good but this was not a $400 meal for 2 people which is what we spent including tip. We each had a cocktail, a glass of wine and shared the oysters and split a wedge salad. We also split the broccoli side dish. My wife had the tri-tip and I had the long rib. The tri-tip was tough but tasty. The long rib was pretty good but nothing special. The highlight of the meal was the dessert. We split the puff pastry dish with pistachio cream. It was probably the best dessert I’ve ever had….not even close. I think we’ll try it again but split a main course and skip the sides. I’ve heard the chop is pretty amazing.
