We were excited to dine at Butter Midtown during our recent visit to New York. In the end, it proved a bit disappointing. Service was slow. It took a good 15-20 minutes to have our drink order taken. Anything coming from the bar proved slow....More

My wife and I visited for lunch. We've been a couple of times previously and are never disappointed. The food is always good, and there are often some interesting cocktails, but the highlight is always the raspberry beignets for dessert.

Nice atmosphere. I started with the faux gras, which was amazing, then had a beef and pork pasta dish, with chanterelles, which was ok. Tasted like something I cook on a regular basis. I expected more from an Iron Chef restaurant. Maybe I ordered wrong,...More
