This was our third time trying to go to this restaurant, but because of waits? we had turned away in the past. This time we came at 7:30 PM on a Tuesday night and there was still a 45 minute wait for two people. We...More

Dinner was good, but not quite as amazing as I’d expected. My old fashioned was strong and pretty good...maybe the best thing about this meal. The crispy brussel sprouts weren’t much different from what we make at home. The charred flank steak was just so-so...More

I had been waiting a long time to stop in and finally found the time. The service was great but was not “wowed” by the food. I had the beef stroganoff and my husband had the salmon. The stroganoff was very sweet and the beef...More

I had Beef Stroganoff, David had Porchetta (pork)....although our meals didn’t taste bad we were both expecting a little more. The stroganoff didn’t have any sour cream, the brisket was very tasty. David’s seared pork chop didn’t have a pork taste.

We have had lunch and brunch at Butcher's Union about 5 times in the last year, and it is always good. Excellent service and great food. Noticed this last weekend that the flank steak is no longer on the brunch menu, which was a bummer...More

Wow, this place! We went here for dinner on Sunday. First off, $22 for a large pitcher of sangria is such as steal and it literally has 10 glasses of sangria in there. I would for sure get that. I got the cobb salad with...More

Terrific by any standard. Great, rich bar with VERY deep whisky/scotch/bourbon menus. Amazing drinks. Food and service always top notch. I'd recommend to anyone....unless you're in a hurry to get a seat! Sometimes there are long waits...which is a good sign that I'm not the...More
