My friends and I had wanted to try Butcher & Singer for some time now. We had the chance to experience it last night and it is now at the top of my list. There is an initiate dining room with comfortable chairs and a classic chophouse atmosphere with a classy feel. Our waiter, Rick, was amazing and helped us... More

The food lives up to the impressive interior but they should tone down the sales pitch a bit. I had the New York Strip and it was delicious, seasoned and cooked just the way I asked for it. I could not eat all the recommended sides so be selective and don't be over influenced by your waiters long sales pitch... More

I came here with a friend the weekend of my birthday. She LOVES B&S. We sat in the bar area on a little canapé to the right of the entrance and out of the cold. I had the raw tuna app - good, she had a filet. We shared some sides - Brussels sprouts and French fries. It is sort... More

The restaurant is beautiful and elegant there is no denying that, however that's where the accolades stop. The menu is small, very simple and extremely expensive, so you'd think they'd get it right. Alas no - the Swordfish ordered medium rare came out very well done and was a small portion for the @$40 it cost. The aged porterhouse was... More

In town last minute. Luckily got a reservation here with a suggestion and phone call from our hotel concierge. It was a Saturday night and dinner was superb and they seated us promptly at our appointed time...so few establishments do anymore. I had the oysters, wow, and a salad and Filet Mignon. All were perfect. My husband had the Strip... More

The steak was amazing. My wife ordered a wedge salad and lump crab which she said were fine. I ordered the strip and a beer. If you stick with what they're known for you can't go wrong!

We took our friends for a nice dinner in February. Little celebration. However, we have started with waiting 35 minutes although made a reservation way ahead. This is a classic steak house. The restaurant is beautiful and has a really nice ambiance. Service was good but certainly not exceptional. There are certainly long periods of time before you are checked... More

We recently dined at this restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. What a great choice my spouse made when he selected this place! We asked for a quiet table and were promptly taken to one in the mezzanine area. The restaurant can be a bit noisy, so definitely ask for that area if you want to be removed from most... More

We celebrated my birthday at Butcher and Singer last night. Entering the large dining room was our first exposure to what was going to be a most memorable evening. The waiter greeted us warmly,and helped us to select drinks followed by 1/2 dozen raw oysters and 1/2 Oysters Rockefeller (which were the best I'd ever tasted.) Not a lot of... More
