Steak
Butcher & Singer, in the amazing historic location at 1500 Walnut, is an intimate and sophisticated dining experience in a relaxed clubhouse setting. We brought back the true classics from perfect Manhattans and Sidecars to hand cut steaks and chops, and freshly caught fish. Timeless and fun for all in the continued age of the American chophouse.

Generally love STARR restaurants (and previously had a great experience before at Butcher & Singer) but this really missed the mark. Our server was inattentive (our outdoor table was isolated and took the server a very long time to take orders and come check on us - for example, we were missing silverware and had to track someone down to get it). This was tough since we went to celebrate a birthday.

This was without a doubt the best outdoor dining experience we’ve had. Our server was attentive and friendly, the food was great and we had more privacy than if we were indoors. We were comfortable and warm. We fully intend to go back.

They did an excellent job of creating an outdoor space that still felt high-class and beautiful. 5/5 all around!

Kudos to all the staff. They handled the covid situation to the highest standard. Felt 100% safe and isolated from others. The waiter, Ricky, was great. He had a mask and a plexiglass shield on. And came to serve only when needed. Highly recommend.

The best meal and service we’ve had in a long time. There was a little problem with our e-gift card, but the manager worked with us and accepted it, in spite of not having the card numbers. We eventually found the correct e-mail, but it was very nice that they stood behind their reputation and gift card. We will definitely go back again.

They went above and beyond preparing off menu for my son's bar mitzvah celebration dinner. The waiter (I wish I remembered his name) was wonderful and attentive. Outdoor, heated dining was very comfortable. 3 of us had perfect steaks! Mac n cheese may be the best I've had. My pregnant daughter enjoyed the mocktails! My picky son loved the cheesecake. The icecream, while delicious is basically 3 thimble sized scoops. The house special salad is one of the saltiest imaginable and very oily..mostly chopped salami - which we trashed. The 2 sides: spinach and cauliflower were barely edible, and were left uneaten, as well. They seated us right on time on a Saturday night..primetime.

My husband and I go here every year for our birthdays (twice a year) and we absolutely LOVE this place, from the moment you walk in to the end. What we really love about this place is the atmosphere, the comfortable chairs/couches, the waiters/waitress and staff are very friendly even during these Covid times. They have really out done them self on the social distancing and the mask/shields . I work with the public as well and I know that its not easy but they really did a great job !!!!!!
Now lets talk about that food, ABSOLUTELY Delicious all around!! We have never gotton a bad meal. We have tried almost everything on their menu and lets not forget about the drinks, WOW!!!! They know their stuff. I had my very first Old Fashion here and I was so impressed, I now order one every time we come in memory of my grandmother who loved Old Fashions (RIP Grandmom)
We look forward to going here every year!! A huge Thank You to everyone who works there and to the Chief!!!!

Words could not appropriately describe the outstanding experience. From start to finish, our server was remarkable. Clearly the restaurant is abiding by all of the COVID-19 regulations. It is evident in the PPE being worn by the staff, the amount of guests inside the restaurant and the time allocated for our dining. The food was truly spectacular. I highly recommend eating here

Excellent service in a beautiful space. Everything was delicious. I was craving steak and I got a great Porterhouse with a white truffle butter, and it was great! We highly recommend it.

Check with the restaurant if you were looking to order a specific dish. Because of COVID they do not have everything in stock, even if they're advertising it on their instagram... (I'm looking at you scallops). Otherwise, the food is great, service is great.

They make sitting outside really fancy! Aside from a couple unwanted passerbys asking for money, it was a great experience. The staff is super attentive and, as always, super nice. We went when it was pretty warm out, but it looks like they have legit vents set up in the outdoor area so I bet it stays pretty warm.

I went for a birthday dinner and it was not special. The wait staff were nice that's why the are getting 3 stars but the food was overpriced and mediocre. Their crab cake appetizer come with 1 crab cake for $21. I asked for a medium well steak and had to send it back twice. When it came back it was well done at that point. Ceaser salad was good! Drinks were ok but nothing to rave about. I wouldn't go back and i checked it off my list.

Searched for a nice place to go with friends who have never been to Philly, and we weren't disappointed... JUST WOW!!! OK... from the muffins/bread (to die for) to the Ice Scream are made in house... that only means one thing to me... QUALITY!!! I love eating and I find it very pleasurable putting quality food in my system... and the beautiful details and history of the restaurant itself...is just amazing... architecture of the place is beautiful. Overall: PLEASE MAKE YOUR RESERVATION NOW! The staff also was so professional and amazing!! Thank you and you could tell he loved the food there too as to the way he described it... :) Bon Apetit!

The only disappointment was the gristel in the Tomahawk steak! There was a streak that ran through every slice of the steak. The stuffed hashbrown potato was terrific, even the next day for lunch! The cheesecake was out of this world!

Saturday night dinner was one of the best!! My steak was seasoned to perfection and melted in my mouth. The dinner rolls are a cross between a biscuit a croissant and heaven!! Was such a treat to celebrate a birthday in such a classy elegant Philadelphia restaurant. Yum.

The host was very rude with zapping my head with the thermometer without even asking permission first. He just shoved it in my face. We had to pay $31 dollars to park. The wait staff did not even pour our water. They just set a bottle on the table and we had to do it ourselves. All wait staff was wearing a mask and shield- I little bit overkill, it’s not like covid is going to leap from their eyeballs into my food. The food was waaaay overpriced but it was delicious. i.e. $15- for a side of Mac and cheese???

I would have given us an overall excellence mark the value part is only reflective of the fact that today restaurants have to increase the cost a bit on their menu items to make up for lost time and revenue I get it and I understand

we had a nice experience the service was excellent and they really cater to our needs
