Steak
Butcher & Singer, in the amazing historic location at 1500 Walnut, is an intimate and sophisticated dining experience in a relaxed clubhouse setting. We brought back the true classics from perfect Manhattans and Sidecars to dry aged, hand cut steaks and chops, and freshly caught fish. Timeless and fun for all in the continued age of the American chophouse.

They forgot it was my birthday, and sat us right next to the dish shelf, so we'd periodically be disrupted by the sound of clanking glass just inches from us (separated by a glass window). The service was Ok, but we often felt forgotten. The food was overpriced for what it was. The 52 dollar porterhouse was tough and hard to eat... but I was too hungry to wait for our server to orbit past us. It was still a lovely night, but the value did not match the pricetag.

We went to Butcher & Singer for my boyfriends birthday. The service was outstanding, waitstaff was knowledgeable and friendly. Aside from an issue in the bathrooms with no running water in the beginning of the night we had an enjoyable evening. We would definitely go back.

Haven’t been to Butcher & Singer for about 3 years. Still an excellent steakhouse but also excellent seafood offered here. A bit pricey, but as prime steakhouses in the city are all about the same price, you know going in what it will be.
The Caesar salad with anchovies if desired is outstanding but the stuffed hash browns are to die for!

AMAZING! After a slight food allergy problem during our last visit, Beth (the general manager) reached out to us to assure us we would be fine this time. She was right! From the moment we walked through the door, she, our waitress Amy, and all of the staff made sure our 25th wedding anniversary dinner was memorable for all the right reasons. We can’t stop talking about it to friends!! Thank you for being so attentive to my gluten allergy and treating us like royalty. We will most definitely be back!

This was excellent all around, except for the hostess who was rude and unaccommodating when we asked about sitting at another table. We were there at 5:15 and the booths we asked about stayed open the majority of time we were at the restaurant.
Besides the hostess, the servers were outstanding and the food was delicious.

Stellar evening celebrating our son’s birthday in a wonderfully festive atmosphere! The GM, Elizabeth Henderson, is a gem! She made certain that our experience was an absolute delight! Shellfish tower, steaks, swordfish and all sides were mouthwateringly delicious. Key lime pie, ice cream and the baked Alaska where off the charts decedent! Our waiter, Zack, was the best! Thank you for a fabulous night!

This is probably my favorite restaurant in the city. Every time we’ve been here it’s been amazing. We went here this time to celebrate my birthday and enjoyed the seafood platter and the tomahawk ribeye. Everything was super delicious. The staff were very friendly and the service was impeccable.

our server, Brandy, was a delight; otherwise, food service was painfully slow and the presentation severely lacking; the restaurant was hot, crowded and very noisy; a terrible experience at a venue where the experience was (justifiably, given the cost) expected to be first rate
the manager's 'answer" was to leave his business card at our table...seriously???

Our server was great. Very knowledgeable and helpful. We were looking forward to the meal as the feedback on the food was very good. However our food was underwhelming. Our party all ordered the same steaks, all ordered medium. 2 of three needed to be sent back as they weren't cooked to specifications. Half of one of those steaks was inedible due to it being just gristle. One was extra rare in the middle, borderline raw. Each ordered the truffle butter that was supposed to melt into the steak....not quite. The crabcake appetizer was very good. The raw clams were disappointing. The bacon side was the biggest hit. If not for the service the review would have been lower. Perhaps expectations were too high but the likelihood of a return visit is low.

Wonderful experience. I had the steak tartar and the veal chop and they were both absolutely phenomenal. The wine list was also very good and I was able to get one of my favorites (Two Hands Gnarly Dudes) for a good price. The service was also top notch with a very knowledgeable staff, and the decor is stunning. I will definitely be visiting again next time I'm in town to try the porterhouse out.

The service was absolutely wonderful! We got there earlier then our reservation because we wanted to leave time to find parking and they were able to seat us earlier - no questions asked! Our waiter was amazing in explaining the menu and how everything was going to come out, he also gave us some excellent tips as well! We have already recommended Butcher and Singer to a lot of our friends and coworkers!
