“Great sushi, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

We did not have a reservation, but the hostess got us right in. They were expecting a large group in about 75 minutes and they asked if we could finish our dinner in that amount of time. We actually were done in about 60 minutes, and to thank us for our cooperation we received free dessert! The sushi is excellent. Nothing was sub par and everything was excellent!

“Cozy Atmosphere, Delicious Sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

A group of friends and I had dinner at Butterfly on NYE. Delicious food with Gigantic portions (we split 5 rolls and 3 appetizers among 5 people and it was more than enough food). The facility itself is very small but has a cozy atmosphere. The only small issue we had was some mis-communication due to language barriers; however, everything worked out in the end. It's BYOB so make sure you stop by a local liquor store beforehand if you would like to drink.

“Great sushi, great takeout”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

I only get sushi delivered from two places in the city - here and Shine. Butterfly is very consistent with it's sushi and japanese cuisine. I highly recommend their roles and their noodle dishes. The restaurant is a bit cramped, so either take out or be prepared for tight quarters and a possible wait.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

We had several kinds of sushi and all met our expectations! Also had a broccoli beef that was pretty decent. It's BYOB which is great so you can pick your own wine to bring to the table. As we were leaving I walked by the kitchen area and could smell the curry. Next time I will try that, because if it tastes as good as it smells, then it will be excellent!
