Butera's Restaurant of Woodbury
It is owned and operated by Martin Butera, his wife Laurie, Martin's brother Gary Butera, and partner and chef Nick Zografos. The large open room is tastefully decorated with a traditional and contemporary mix, with rich dark woodwork and stone treatments, granite table tops, a wood and granite bar, fieldstone and hardwood floors, stone fireplace, exposed wine racks and a Tiffany style fixture at the entrance. Fresh flowers complete the handsome decor.
In addition to their extensive menu you can select from the creative specials like Grilled Filet of Halibut with Prince Edward Island Mussels on a citrus rosemary butternut squash risotto.
Always a good time at Butera’s,. From the friendly greeting as we checked in for our reservation to the attentive server who took our drink orders. We invited friends who had not been there before. He ordered from the specialty drink menu which was inventive and enjoyable. We shared the grilled Calamari and their famous meatball pot. Yum. We followed up with seafood over linguine, chicken Marsala, seared sesame tuna, and crumpled chicken sausage mixed with veggies. Everything was delicious. It was a nice evening, so we extended it with coffee, cappuccino and Butera’s fabulous brownie topped with ice cream. My wife and I always like it there. It was nice that our friends couldn’t stop thanking us for bringing them. We will all be back soon. Probably with a new friends. Thank you Butera’s!
We went in for a quick date at 3:30 pm. Server was great. Food outstanding. Can’t wait to come back
Lunch menu is great. Lots of choices.
I love this restaurant. They have great food and the waiter Joe makes you feel welcome. Great service and great value.
We ate there for brunch; the menu was extensive.
Everyone's meal was wonderful.
the place needs to be redone fast, it looks tired and very worn. Saturday they had large parties in the back, it was extremely noisy and loud, the waiter took our order and was never seen until we asked for the check the salmon was overdone but since no one came to ask if everything was OK we ate what was edible, it was like leather, my veal Marsala was very good. we will never go back, its over priced and the value is just not there.
Food was very good and portions large. Our waiter, Michael, was outstanding. Ate inside since it was early but outdoor seating available if wanted. Definitely would return.
First off the food was amazing. I really want to say the service is intended to be great as the manager came by to check on everyone. Unfortunately we weren’t at our boiling point when she visited so we just replied with a simple “fine thank you.”
Our waiter (a stocky Hispanic gentleman) was very rude in serving. We had to flag him down constantly for placing orders and his attitude when responding was very abrupt and grumpy. He even bang into a lady crossing paths that yelled “Jesus”, he smirked laughed and replied to her “Jesus!” It simply seemed like he didn’t care. We waited about 50-55min for our entree to arrive with no explanation or apology when asked.
Nonetheless, I can tell this is a nice establishment that cares about its customers. We must have just had a bad apple of a server.
Delicious food, pleasant service and a comfortable outdoor setting.
Butera's is consistently good. Food is really good. This visit though, I felt the service was lacking. Maybe due to Covid, short of help. I will chalk it up to that for now.
Everything was wonderful from seating to drinks to food .
Waitress was lovely. Can’t say enough about this neighborhood gem!
Ate outdoors, had to ask for a waiter/waitress to come to our table... finally had someone come to our table... once that occurred everything was ideal.
Another great experience at Butera’s. Love their clam sauce but it’s a little rich with oil and garlic. However, I keep going back!
excellent food-- love the chicken meatball pan lasagna & goat cheese salad so fresh. Large portions. Our server and busboys very attentive.
Took friends from out of town here for dinner. Everything was delicious. Staff was attentive.
Ample outdoor seating.
Wonderful dinner with friends. We are outside and felt we were safe. Waitress was outstanding.
Aall wait staff should be wearing masks. Other than that everything gteat
Delicious food and great service. Thanks!!!
Always delicious there
Server was impatient on wine and drink selection. Took menus back for no apparent reason.
Food did seem to have been cooked fresh
Excellent food & service! Beautiful decor!
Putsttservicr and food
Everything was excellent. However, with the rise of the Delta variant we would have felt more comfortable had the wait staff all wore masks and stayed further from the table when taking the order and checking up on us. For that reason, we cannot return until a change in your policy is announced. Thank you.
I went with 3 friends and we loved our selections. We had a wonderful experience dining there.
I got the veal moscato, it was divine! My taste buds were in heaven!! The pineapple infused vodka was delish as well and we got the rainbow cheesecake. This place did not disappoint on any level, amazing dining experience
The food is great and the staff is friendly and attentive.Their outdoor dining is safe . I enjoy all of my meals there.
The outdoor seating was very appropriate. They were training a new server which worked out well they were very attentive.
The food Grilled Shrimp Calabrese w/Orzo Excellent!!!! Egg Plant Farm was very good and the portions were large.
We had a 5:00 reservation and by the time we left the outdoors was full.
Will be back again Thank you.
Food and service was very good as usual— the rigatoni-broccoli rabe with crumbled chicken sausage in olive oil and garlic was the best
Always good service and hood food. We were also treated to good music! What a nice experience. We are going back Tonight and bringing friends.
