Butcher & Singer, in the amazing historic location of 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.

    We loved our experience at Butcher & Singer! The food was great and the service was even better! Brian, our server, took the time to get to know us, explain the menu, recommend dishes to try, and other things to do in the city! The onion soup was the best I’ve ever had, and I highly recommend the Baked Alaska for dessert! A must try. A highlight of our trip for sure!

    Amazing!!! My graduation dinner was outstanding! The attention to details were unmatched, when we were seated the waitress immediately congratulated my son & throughout the night showed sheer happiness with us with small talk & ended with dessert with Congratulation written out. It made our night so special!!! Forever grateful for the staff , good food and service.

    5 stars! Best steak we have ever eaten! I recommend their Delmonico (ribeye). Jared was our server and he was incredible. He gave us a brief history of the restaurant and was well versed in all food and wine recommendations.

    This is our go to steak house in the city filled with other options. We arrived at 4:57 for a 5P reservation. Told they won’t seat until 5 and we can go for the bar for a drink (for 3 minutes). We moved over to the bar and ordered cocktails at 5P sharp they came to seat us. Drinks were being prepared so it was a rush to wrap up and pay bill. We then carefully returned to hostess station with our generously filled cocktails in hand only to be told to wait to be seated. This was some tomfoolery but the service beyond this was top of the line. Please do better with this part of the experience.

    Always love coming here. Brian is the most incredible waiter ever. Was terribly disappointed by the (new) chefs decision to ruin the chocolate cake with some sort of wretched berry sauce. Why would they mess with a classic dessert. Terribly disappointing.

    Butcher and Singer is our go to steak house. Always excellent food and top notch service.! It was my husband’s and my anniversary. I made note of it in my reservation, really not expecting anything except “Happy Anniversary “. At the end of our meal our waiter brought out a beautiful desert with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate! This restaurant never disappoints!!

    I think Butcher & Singer is one of the best steaks in Philadelphia. The union soup is very nice(better than Parc and other French restaurants). The steak and lamb are delicious. And finally the dessert, the big ball - Alaska is amazing, with ice cream and cake inside.

    First, why are you asking for verification of an email that you sent to me? To be rushed straight to a table by the door in an empty restaurant never appeals to me. Why are your hostesses addressing Black customers by their first names, while addressing White customers by their surnames?

    We've been going to Butcher & Singer since 2019. Every visit has brightened our days, and we love every dish, from biscuits to desserts. They have high-quality steak & chops you will not regret having for your fancy dinner night. +) I was having my birthday dinner during my last visit and was greeted with surprise birthday wishes and candles. It really made my day.
