The food here was unbelievable. Even a light dinner of salad and crab was delectable. The service was exquisite. You can dine alone and feel totally comfortable. The cocktails were amazing. I could have stayed here all night, but had to run for a plane, and they even coordinated my cab. Thank you Butcher & Singer. $80 just for me though for a light dinner, perhaps I'm just naive but that felt pricey.

I saw the negative reviews and had to comment. I stumbled upon this gem while in Philadelphia on business from Miami Beach, FL. I've eaten at some amazing restaurants around the world and am not easily impressed. Butcher & Singer made a considerable impression on me! I had the 8 oz. filet mignon, stuffed hashbrowns, creamed spinach, and apple crumble. The steak was PERFECTION. I will be back, many times over. Yes, the ambiance is nice, but the food is in my opinion, worth twice as much what they're charging. Beautiful.

Went during restaurant week with friends and our meal was great! The decor was also nice and the maitre d was handsome. The only suggestion I have is to offer coffee with dessert. Our waiter did not ask us if we wanted any. Overall a great dining experience though.

came into philly from nyc for the weekend on a whim, we decided to try out this steakhouse. The crowd is a bit on the older side, but that matches the 1950's old school vibe (tuxedoed waiters, twists on classic cocktail drinks). start to finish, the food was just terrific - i had a very tender filet mignon, while my bf had a flavorful and perfectly seared ribeye/Delmonico with bleu cheese on top. the baked alaska was surprising on appearance, but light and easy to gobble up. overall, recommend it to anyone seeking a special (and pricey) night out on the town!

I don't know what others have experienced, based on their mixed reviews (which, frankly, are hard to believe given the exceptional nature of this restaurant), but this was an extraordinary meal, from start to finish. My partner and I walked in off the street, we were in town for our anniversary and came across the place. It looked so beautiful inside and the menu was exactly my taste in food, that we decided to give it a try. I can't remember the last time I said, after taking a first bite, "That is so good." The steak, shrimp, the wonderful stuffed hash browns, a must. Our waiter was top notch and the hostess, hearing it was our anniversary, brought out a surprise dessert with candle. The night could not have been more special or satisfying. You must give this place a try.

Very disappointing for a Stephen Starr restaurant. We walked in and sat at the bar to wait for our friend and the bartender did not say hi - didn't even ask us what we wanted - just put two cocktail napkins in front of us and gave us a look. I had a vegetable risotto dish that was almost inedible - it was mushy and bland. When the waiter came over to ask how things were - I told him the risotto was medicore at best. He laughed it off and there was no remedy - he packed it for me to take home, but I threw it away on the street. The has browns ans mashed potatoes were also poor - my 10 year old could make better. My dining mates said the veal chop was ok and the steak fatty and salty. They also kept trying to take our plates before we were done. Really, the only good things were the wine and the chocolate cake at the end. but at 355.00 for 3 people with drinks, I can get cake and wine elsewhere. They need to either get a new chef or close. It sucked.

This restaurant offers high quality food in a room with incredible ambience served by an attentive and courteous waitstaff. That having been said, we have been here three times, and while our steaks were cooked to perfection, the chef should be fired for dumping what I can only assume is a half box of Morton's salt on each one. Come to think of it, the next time I crave a good steak, perhaps I should try the aforementioned Mortons. What a shame! This should have been an incredible dining experience.
