About the restaurant
The Sena family tradition of culinary excellence dates back to early 1947 when Carlo “Papa” Sena began to cook in postwar Naples. The family carried this experience across the Atlantic and opened La Famiglia in 1976 in the shell of a Colonial tea warehouse. Today, La Famiglia stands as the finest Italian restaurant in Philadelphia and a major landmark on the city’s vibrant restaurant scene.

About the restaurant
Butcher & Singer, in the amazing historic location of 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 hand-cut steaks and chops, and freshly caught fish. Timeless and fun for all in the continued age of the American chophouse.

Best steak I've had in a restaurant in a long time. The American Wagyu rib cap was cooked to perfection and the sides were delicious as well.

This place is fabulous--the view alone sets it apart from any other venue in Philadelphia. The ambience is perfect--our hostess, Savannah, made us feel warm and welcome, the live music (a group called Dream x Dream) was jazzy and fun, and played at a level where we were able to carry on a conversation without having to shout over the music. Really enjoyed our drinks and apps--we'll be back!

The cocktails were delicious, however the menu could use a few dry/savory/less sweet cocktail options. There is no food, so the “food” rating was for the drinks. The decor and ambience is fantastic! The noise level could be dialed down a notch; the live music is wonderful, but it would be nice to have softer/quieter background music in between sets so people can converse more easily. Loved that the cocktail waitresses in my section were dressed the part and in keeping with the 1920s theme!
