    We had a great time! There was quite a difference in perception of food size. I felt we over-ordered based on our original plan because the server under-estimated the size of our selections (gnocci mac & cheese; short rib) and advised us to order more. I’m glad we opted to at least see the gnocchi first, because it was definitely shareable, and sadly we didn’t really even touch the steak because we were already full. We also loved the ice cream that came with the Texas Sheet Cake!

    We were celebrating my daughter’s friend’s 30th birthday. The cocktails were wonderful, (especially the one with the watermelon ice cubes), service was excellent and the food was good, but not special. Except for The Parkerhouse rolls, which were spectacular. The vibe there is a bit staid, but enjoyable. For dessert we ordered the raspberry beignets, which were light and delicious. I was very disappointed when they brought out a miniature cupcake with a candle for our friend’s birthday. I swear it was the kind they sell in a twelve pack at grocery stores. I was embarrassed. Considering our bill was well over $400, I think they could have presented her with something nicer.

    Overall, a great experience. We had a great time that was made better by great service. Our server (Janet) was phenomenal and added a great atmosphere. I ordered a drink that I ended up not liking (although it was good, just not what I wanted) and she got me another one with no extra charge. We expected the mains to come with something else, even a little bit of a side. The two side options were French fries and broccoli, just oddly juxtaposed to the good food. Small plates were ten times better than the mains, for us. Loved the fois gras; the cavatappi was amazing; and the buratta was the bite of the night. We’d recommend to everyone, still.

    Service was great. Food was delicious but you can’t get any vegetables here. Also if you try to make a modification to a dish such as adding chicken to a salad etc. it cannot be done. The lack of vegetables alone would keep me from returning.

    It was just OK for me. This was our big night out while in the city and I had high expectations. We ordered the 3 small plates recommended by our waiter (veal bacon, gnocci Mac & cheese and octopus) and the rolls. Nothing was bad, just not blown away. I was very excited for the crème brûlée with snickerdoodle. The cookie was stale and custard had no flavor. Disappointing for a restaurant with such a good reputation.

    Outstanding! Went for pre-theater dinner on a Saturday night. Restaurant was full and yet not overly loud. Music is also kept at a level that allows for table conversation at normal volume. Service was attentive and warm. Food was top notch and met all expectations. We ordered a variety of the small plates to share including the tuna over crispy rice, the kale salad, the gnocchi mac n chees, and the special rolls (yeah you have to pay $5 for bread). All great! And left room for the beignets for dessert. Just a really lovely meal. And not rushed. In at 5:30pm and out at 7:30pm to make our show.

    Unbelievable gem, in the heart of midtown but appropriately situated away from the crowds of Times Square! Now the food, how many restaurants anywhere have sardines on the menu??! Well, they we’re “make your knees buckle” delicious!!! The rest of meal was iron chef fabulous, short ribs, branzino, chicken marsala, kale salad, gnocchi Mac and cheese, raspberry beignets to name a few dishes. In a word, RUN! and reserve a table. You will not be disappointed and I will see you there because I will definitely be back! Thanks Chef!

    From the moment you step in to Butter, you are treated to an amazing dining experience. The service was top notch. Everyone was very attentive and knowledgeable. Our server, Janeth, made the whole night one we will never forget. She was so friendly and also gave great recommendations along the way. She knew that it was my husband’s birthday, as well as his first time to butter (my second), and she went above and beyond to make this a celebration. Now can we talk about food?! Chef’s Kiss!!! This has to go down as one of the best meals I have ever had in my life (and I have eaten in many nice restaurants around the world). We started with foie gras and the duck rillette. Both delicious and if they were any indication of the meal to come, we were definitely excited for what was next. My husband ordered the pork chop. The depth of flavor in the smoke and seasoning of this chop was unrivaled. I had the short rib. My first time to Butter, in its original location, I had this dish and I have been dreaming about it ever since. It was better than I even remembered. If you are thinking of paying a visit to Butter, don’t hesitate to make that reservation now. You will not regret it. We will definitely be back again…and again!!

    My wife and I had the blue fin tuna appetizer as well as the burrata. Both were fantastic, but the tomahawk special was the star of the meal for sure. Our waiter Freddy was outstanding. All in all a very good experience.
