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.

Went to Butter on a Saturday night in early June. Room was beautiful, service started out great but we were pretty much ignored later. Wanted to order a second bottle of wine but the waitress never came to check on us. Finally we flagged her down and got the wine. Even though the service was lacking the food was truly a religious experience! The fois gras was the best I've ever eaten! My friend was jealous that he didn't order it as well! The entrees were nothing short of 5 star. Price was fairly reasonable for a top-notch NYC restaurant. All in all, I highly recommend checking it out, I'll definitely be going back!

The attractive dinning room and kind, attentive maitre'd made a great first impression, but I fell in love at the first coarse. If it is on the menu (the waiter mentioned that the menu changes frequently to reflect what is fresh in the current market) you have to try the stuffed soft shell crab appitizer. For the main coarse my wife loved the halibit but I couldn't get away from my veal. The waitstaff was extreemly friendly; I couldnt be happier with the service. Ohhh and don't forget to try the butter martini, it rocked! (I think thats what they called it, maybe the butterttini) It was a bit pricy but worth every cent.

Went here with my girls for dinner- nice atmosphere but that is about it. Took 20 minutes to get our appetizers, one never even arrived. Food was OK at best, nothing great, even the dessert was not great. Overall, an unpleasant experience at a place we were really looking forward to enjoying. I will not be back and I do not recommend it!

My lunch was very good -- goat cheese and asparagus salad to start, roasted cod with corn, shredded cabbage and bacon and the super-duper delicious hazlenut chocolate dessert. HOWEVER, be warned that they now only serve a prixe fix lunch with four apps and four entree offerings and three for dessert. I was SO looking forward to trying THE LOBSTER ROLL -- and so was the woman next to me who was in from out of town. Someone at the restaurant faxed her the old lunch menu and she only came in for the lobster roll. The manager profusely apologized and said that if they had had lobster available in the kitchen that the chef would've made it. My lunch date had come with the lunch menu too. Our watress was fine. The atmosphere is very pleasant and soothing.
