    Our server was personable, but for the first time our meal was extremely underwhelming. The flavor of everything was simply off. No one at my table even wanted to take the large portions of sides as to-go. I’ll be switching it up for the next steakhouse visit. I left disappointed

    My wife & I dined here for our birthday and it was a great experience. Our appetizers arrived fast, our dinner was great and the drinks were strong. The most memorable thing about the night however wasn't the food (as good as it was though), it was our server Brian. Brian was AMAZING! I don't want to give too much away but if you get a chance to go here or even go back because he was never your server, go and ask for Brian. You will not be disappointed.

    Waiter John was friendly but not obtrusive. He made several suggestions, all of which turned out to be superb. The Delmonico steaks were to die for. I like mine extra rare. John recommended medium rare because of the marbling, and the steak melted in our mouths. The stuffed hash browns were a perfect mix of crispy and soft. And a shared baked Alaska was the perfect ending

    The atmosphere was very nice, and our server was attentive, but the food was disappointing. My wife and I both ordered our cuts prepared Medium. Her steak was presented Rare, and my pork chop was Well Done, which was nearly inedible due to the dryness. They also forgot to remove the butcher string from around my chop, but were nice enough to comp the plate when they realized. The sides were also overcooked and under seasoned, but the Butcher Salad was pretty good.

    Excellent food and service but we were at a 2-top next to a service bar- very loud and for the price- there should be a barrier- I don’t appreciate looking at a service area for a $400 dinner

    This was our first time dining at Butcher and Singer, and I booked it for my husband’s birthday. What an amazing experience! The art deco/jazz age decor transports you to another era, and the ambiance is ideal for a date with plush seating, sweeping ceilings, dark paneling, giant chandeliers, romantic lighting and jazz music playing in the background. The food was amazing, and the Baked Alaska is a new favorite. Our server, Brian, made the experience extra special. This is one of our favorite restaurants in Philly now, and I’d highly recommend it for a romantic dinner, celebration, or nice evening out. Compared to other steakhouses in Philly, the prices are very reasonable.

    I just want to say Brian was absolutely one of the best servers I’ve ever had. He made my visit so comfortable and pleasurable I would come back just for him! The food was amazing. Everything from the escargot, shrimp Louie salad, crab cocktail to the Delmonico steak. It was truly an amazing experience I’m disappointed I waited this long to visit and it will be my new favorite restaurant over taking DelFrisvos Thank you for having us!

    Well I been a bunch of times we used to love it. Not sure what happened the food was disapointing. Beef tartar amazing. The Tuna tartar like 3 bites and not dressed. It was. On the side boring. Got the chicken which I go there just for that. The Sauce was like glue and salty so salty. 3 half’s of artichoke. Come on. Fried shrimp over cooked so chewy and the slaw nasty sour. Baked Alaska great and so was the chocolate cake. Was a real disappointment real sad bc I loved the place

    My wife and thoroughly enjoyed our most recent dinner! She had the salmon and I had the pork chop which were both cooked to perfection, exactly as ordered. Sides of creamed spinach and onions were also great! The shrimp app was fresh as could be with very large shrimp that were also delicious. Service, wine and cocktails were also spot-on. The GM and Chef both stopped by and were warm, sincere & hospitable!

    Complex experience. Been to B&S lots of times and food and service always good. This time we arrived for a 6:45 reservation for 6. Table not ready so we went to the bar. After a few minutes manager came over and explained there was an issue and it would be a while. He offered free drinks and appetizers until we sat down. Great, we thought it would be 15 min. Nope, we were delayed an hour and 10 minutes. Not ideal. We later sat down and ate dinner and had a good time. Waiter was awesome. As were the bar tenders. This could have been an awful experience, but it wasn’t because B&S accepted responsibility and probably comp-ed over $300 of drinks and food. Granted we had a good attitude about it, but they certainly could have done something different that would have made this a negative review. Stuff happens. What matters is how you handle it. They did best they could. And it mattered. We had a great time. Just longer than expected. Thank you!

    Amazing meal from end to end. We had an oyster special with passion fruit and trout roe that was to die for along with a shrimp cocktail. It was served together on a nice platter for sharing. For dinner we did the porterhouse for two, the stuffed hash brown (a must!) and the broccolini. Nothing disappointed. Finished the night with a lemon pie dessert and expresso martini. Our waiter Jarrod was an expert on the menu and took excellent care of us. Can’t wait to go back.
