Went to butter last night for the first time last night, despite the mixed reviews. Everything from the little beet salad they gave at the begining to the little green tea bluberry cakes they gave at the end was amazing. The service was just right too! We really liked the salmon tartar, the halibut and the carrot cake. We'll be back!

I would not recommend this place to anyone, it is way over priced, and I was not immpressed with the food. I paid $27.00 for a Chicken breast,! (LOL).

Went to butter after our good experience at james beard foundation dinner with their entry. I couldn't have been more disappointed. The entrees were overcooked-the pork porterhouse was so hard, you need a masher to eat it, the snapper was tasteless, desserts were average and the appetizers were ok. Don't waste your money on any of their cocktails. All in all a truly forgettable but expensive night.

I wasn't expecting much from the outside, but once inside you find a very cool little restaurant. We went for lunch which meant it was less expensive and less crowded. The portions were somewhat small, but the food was delicious! The waiter ignored us a little bit, which was odd given that we were one of two customers there at the time. Since we didn't go in the evening we did not go to the downstairs club, but I can definitely recommend this place for lunch.

Went on a Sat night at 9:00 pm. It was only half full and yet it took 1 hour to recieve appetizers. After waiting another hour our entrees still had not arrived so we complained and left. We had to keep flagging down the waiter for drinks and to find out why we had to wait so long. Basically, nobody was interested in us. What we did eat was just OK, but expensive. We would not go back. Maybe they should just focus on being a club instead of a restaurant.

This place was great but expensive.

Genuinely, I am left with little to say. It's simply not good. Atmosphere, food, service; all not good. The carpeting downstairs made me feel as though I was in the basement of a Church. I was quite excited to go, despite my frustrations about Butter being closed on Sundays, went, and was subsequently disappointed. Even dessert was sub par.
