Came here for Restaurant Week and had a fabulous evening. We arrived early for our reservations just so we could hang out at the swanky bar they have. House cocktails did not disappoint and the bartenders were very professional. We we seated at a table for two on the upper side level. Table is just big enough to accommodate the required glasses and plates. The styling and ambience make me think that this is where the cast of Mad Men would go when they wanted a steak dinner. And what a steak dinner it was. My piece of fillet was as tall as it was round. Cooked a perfect medium rare and rested long enough so no juices were waisted yet the meat was still warm. Alas, the stuffed hash browns were not on the prix fixe menu. However the creamed spinach was delicious. Everything about our evening here had polish and class. The staff was welcoming and helpful both to guests and each other. Working as finely together as the jazz bands that provided the soundtrack for the evening.

Our dinner at Butcher & Singer on Sunday, February 23rd, was exceptional. The restaurant is a classic design with a very low noise level. From the time we arrived and until we were finished our dinner we found the staff at Butcher & Singer to be warm, friendly, courteous and efficient. Our waiter was Matt and you couldn't ask for a more perfect gentleman. He was very informative and efficient and always made sure that we were not in need of anything. Our meals were outstanding! My filet was cooked perfectly to my satisfaction and was delicious while my wife ordered the Branzino and she found it to be delicate to the taste and quite pleasing to the palate. In addition to our entrees we also ordered the butcher salad which was exceptional and large enough to share. For our sides we also ordered the stuffed Hash Browns and the roasted brussels sprouts. Both sides were very good and were also large enough to share. Needless to say our dinner at the Butcher and Singer was enjoyable and very memorable.

Their roasted butternut squash soup is totally worth going back for. Don't think about it and just get the Butcher Burger: A wonderfully juicy and massive 10-ounce dry-aged prime beef patty with caramelized onion and English cheddar, fried onions on a house-baked bun. I had trouble putting my burger down, how can anyone resist this one. I highly recommend that Butcher and Singer consider calling their Burger "Butcher Heaven Burger." Chocolate Caramel Tart for dessert? YES, please. Who would resist this baby! Its any chocolate lover's dream! The sweet pastry tart shell was flaky and delicious. The dense and rich bittersweet chocolate ganache was incredibly smooth! I cannot find words to describe how much I loved the homemade salted caramel. This is one of the best desserts I've ever had!! Our waiter, Andrew, was exceptionally knowledgeable, very patient, and kind to everyone. There were ten people in our party. Everything was delivered to the table in a timely manner. Another winner from Stephen Starr! At Butcher and Singer, there are way too many delicious ways to get fat.

Fantastic experience at an independently owned and classic American steakhouse. From start to finish, service is a craft and we were well treated. We ordered so much that I thought I'd pop and took home a few dishes. The meal starts with awesome choices for cocktails or wine and homemade biscuits that are truly a buttery, pastry bliss. You want more, but since the meal is so big you don't get more. We started with a maple-peppered pork belly that was sensational. Two people can easily share one steak, but we tried two and skipped the tomahawk at the server's advice. Try a pepper-crusted delmonico and a porterhouse for one. Each steak was perfectly cooked. We asked for an Oscar preparation onthe side. It came with ample crab lump meat and bernaise sauce that when mixed with the crab brought through the flavors of the islands perfectly. Mushrooms and onions were a stand out side. I'd skip the baked potato next time. It was delish, but not anything that I could not cook at home and do better. We finished with dessert. The Baked Alaska was amazing. The meringue toasted to perfect, the banana a perfect juxtaposition, and a perfect crust. All service was perfect and attentive from start to finish in spite of being seated next to a large party.

We were in town to visit my friend’s son at school and wanted to treat him to a nice experience. The dining room was very classy, and we managed to be seated in a rear corner away from everyone (which was fine given the current situation). All of us ordered some type of steak, which were excellently prepared. We started with salads, and we ordered some vegetables and their recommended potato hash brown side, which was really good. Their wine list is excellent, and we had a very nice bottle of red. Service was excellent, and we had a very enjoyable experience. Expensive but well worth it.

A very romantic and ambient dining location. High ceilings, low lighting and warm decor make for a very cozy and classy dining experience. The menu has some great options... I started with a Shrimp Cocktail, followed by a 14oz boneless NY Strip with two sides (Mashed Potatoes & Brussel Sprouts) and finished with Pumpkin Cheesecake. Everything was superb. The wait staff were smartly dressed and super professional. A great fine dining experience. My 3 course meal cost $112 with tax and that was without any drinks as I stuck to water. So if you are drinking you should budget on $150 per person minimum and you could easily spend way more than that!

We really like to savor an experience that ends up costing $400. We got there early and had a drink-great bar! Table was just ok-we should have spoken up about that but really not a great location at all. Great service but they literally cleared plates when you had just finished the course. They initially asked that we order all at once and then apps came out literally 5 minutes later, then food 20 minutes after that. We were in and out within an hour which really was not enjoyable. Steaks are phenomenal of course and we love Starr restaurants. Just wish we could have had a bit more time to enjoy ourselves and not be so rushed.

Impossible to dine here without feeling the gravitas. Privilege. 25’ ceilings, 6’ diameter chandeliers, wood paneling. The feeling of a gentlemen’s club circa 1928. Superb service, excellent bartender. Exceptional waiter, if a wee bit too chatty. I love these basic menus, steak, potato, salad, veg, all cooked to perfection. Leave your budget behind and go. Make it a point. This is one to write home about.

Place has a very old-school vibe. You can almost smell the cigar smoke and money. The burger I had was very, though pricey. Dessert was excellent, service was outstanding. I'd give it five stars but for the prices. If you are looking for a good, albeit expensive, steak dinner, I would recommend this joint.

The atmosphere was sultry, the service was impeccable, and the food was top notch. Took the server's recommendation and ordered the stuffed hash browns as a side. He did a great job of describing each dish so we knew what to expect. Think creamy potatoes inside of a potato crust. Members of my party ordered the Delmonico steak, a filet, King Salmon, crab cakes, and oysters. All were well prepared and cooked perfectly. Didn't have dessert...can you say delicious biscuits...but the Baked Alaska looked divine. Will definitely return.

We went for dinner on 07/12/2022. We were 12. I ordered a white wine , Gavi . It came room temperature , when it was supposed to be cold. The waitress showed me the bottle , the opened it , the she poured the wine for tasting . When I told her that it was warm and not drinkable she said " let me chill it 3/4 minutes " . I answered that 3/4 minutes would have been nothing. She needed a good hour. In the meantime we ordered a Sancerre , that fortunately was cold. Red wine : the first round , Napa cabernet was at the right temperature . The second round , a Ripasso Valpolicella ( red ) , was cold like a white normally should be. These guys have problems with the wine cellar. The service was average and the steaks good but not top. My credit card bill was overcharged by $ 20.00 which I am disputing. We ordered two Margarita, after dinner , they were comparable to those in a cheap bar. Not going back there , and the issue is not the $ 20.00 extra charge , but the rest.

Almost the entire meal was 5 stars but I came specifically for the steaks and they just weren't quite there. I had the Delmonico (medium on recommendation) and a Filet Mignon medium-rare. Both Oscar with King crab upgrade. The steaks were seasoned and cooked perfectly. The Oscar was perfect. So why only 4 stars? The meat. I found both steaks to be a bit chewy and lacking internal flavor. This is a top restaurant, so I'm naturally being very picky. The steaks were far superior to run of the mill steak joints but I've had better meat at some of the other top end steakhouses. Loved the atmosphere even with the covid plexiglass (which actually helped the noise level!). I would not recommend (upon sight only IMO) the outdoor seating. Appetizers and sides were top notch! Service excellent. A little better meat and this experience would have been 5 stars all the way.

Great outdoor dining during covid- The blue gloves are my only issue- yuck... The food was amazing, the service was above average and the price was as expected. Best wedge salad I have ever had- want it every day. The warm biscuits literally melted in your mouth. The steaks were cooked and seasoned spot on. Perfect size for sides and the desserts were large and amazing. Cannot say enough great things

I can not judge the food as my visit did not even get that far . Menu looked pretty good prices a little high but was still excited to dine as I had the tomahawk in mind . When I reserved my table I chose outdoor seating assuming like any other restaurant seating would be in a quiet designated area. Not knowing you are literally outside on the side walk with pedestrians walking by . Did not feel comfortable we asked the hostess who had stated she may have something else but she never came back. I just was not comfortable with all the passers-byers literally being able to eye up my dinner . Not really a comfortable ambience for us to dine . So with dissapointment we chose to leave .

Very disappointed. For main courses we ordered one rack of lamb and one chicken entree. The chicken entree came with two (2) gravy boats on the plate, my lamb did not have any sauce, and there was no explanation when the dish was presented. We didn’t know which gravy was which, and we ended up putting the chicken gravy on the lamb and the lamb gravy on the chicken. Yuck!!! When I complained to the server that two (2) gravy boats were on the same plate and we ended up ruining our meal with the wrong gravy, he simply said “oh, sorry.” Did you ever eat lamb with chicken gravy? The food “might” have been good but their mix up, and their failure to take responsibility, absolutely ruined our meal. Why would you put two (2) gravy boats on the same plate and then not explain anything to us? Plenty of other places to go, as this one is a “miss.”
