I don't use those words lightly. We've had a lot of great meals, but Butter was the best. The salmon I had was perfectly cooked and paired very well with the sweet corn succotach, his pork chop was delicious and juicy. I cannot speak highly enough about the execution of the chefs at Butter. Just outstanding. The wait staff was... More

Overall this was a great restaurant and the food lived up to the expectation that we had. I'll dig into the only negative before I rave about the restaurant. We came for happy hour after previewing the menu. We knew that we wanted to have a few drinks and soak up the atmosphere before sitting down for our 6pm reservation.... More

This was recommend by a friend and I was glad I went. I had a baked chicken dish that was spectacular. It was crusted and baked to a perfect doneness. Side dish of brasied kale was perfect in texture. The only bad thing was the place closed earlier than I would have thought and it was obvious they wanted us... More

We are foodies and usually include one or two fine dining experiences while in vacation. This one did not disappoint. The restaurant is owned by Food Network chef Alex Guarnaschelli. We even met her while checking in our coats. She was gracious and came out to meet us even though she was in the middle of preparing first seating service... More

I was looking forward to visiting here for a quick light lunch, because I admire Alex G, but was disappointed. We chose the vegan options- cauliflower and broccoli because the descriptions sounded amazing, but expectations were not met on the plate. Staff were great and attentive and I will certainly give ithe chef another chance so I can give it... More

I had a brussel sprout appetizer/salad. While it was very good, it was $18 for a tiny portion!! I loved the portion size because I was looking for something small, I just don't think it was worth $18. Everything on the menu was very pricey. But nice atmosphere if you're not looking for windows (it's in the basement), and good... More

My family and I came here for Brunch just before a show. Service was slow and the buffet breakfast was nothing spectacular. Slightly better than a hotel free breakfast. The tough part was the price, family of 4 for brunch, no alcohol, $240. To pricey for mediocrity.

Simple ingredients but huge depth of flavor! Had the spinach dip appetizer, crispy chicken for dinner and seasonal banana bundt cake with caramelized walnuts for dessert. Portion sizes were large and everything was simply delicious!

We came here w/ a party of 8 people. The Wagyu Ribeye s/b renamed to "Rubber w/ Fat". At a $95 price point for Wagyu Ribeye, they should be embarrassed to serve such a poor quality dish. The New York Strip Steak tasted awful at a $49 price point. The Cocktails were VERY weak. The service was ridiculously poor. We... More
