I made a late reservation (9:30 pm) for 2 during restaurant week. we arrived almost 15 minutes late due to traffic, yet they held our table and seated us right away. The restaurant looks very chic and if you don't mind staring at an a-symmetrican semi-circle, there is a lovely glass forest on the back wall. The restaurant week menu different completely from the regular menu. I ordered a green salad with herbed goat cheese and then grilled halibut with roasted asparagus and squash emulsion. The entree was excellent - tasty fish and the squash was incredible. the service, however left much to be desired - our waiter was not particularly attentive and we did not leave the restaurant until almost 1 am. We did not see any celebrities here which was a minor disappointment, I would go back simply for the squah emulsion.

I went to Butter and I thought it was just the coolset thing ever. Amazing surroundings. You feel like a celebrity because this is one of those amazing places you see them dining in in those magazines. I heard of it from a gossip magazine, but it was well worth it. Amazing. 5 stars all the way across the board!

Not the culinary experience I was hoping for. Yes, the atmosphere is hot, but the food definitely left something to be desired. However, if you don't care about the quality of food and want a fun place to eat, Butter is your place.

I went to Butter with a group of friends over the weekend. The atmosphere was great, but the food was tasteless. Even the butter on the table needed improvement (salt or something). I would recommend it for drinks and maybe a little dancing on the bottom floor.

Ate at Butter last night w/ a friend in town from Columbus, OH... we had the Restaurant Week menu which is only avail til Labor Day... if you can go... YOU SHOULD! We ate early (6:45) & had 3 service people attending to us the entire time... the chef sent a complimentary yellow tail tuna salad to each of us btwn the appetizer (we had cream of asparagus soup w/ truffles & kobe beef empanadas) & the entree (we had the pork loin w/ haystack potatoes & broccoli rabe & mushroom ravioli) which was so wonderful. Portions are full size & presentation is beautiful. Dessert was peach cobbler w/ raspberry sorbet & blueberry tart w/ vanilla ice cream, both served warm from the oven... heaven! Then, along w/ the check, the chef sent 2 pieces of homemade candy and the hostess gave us each a bag of mini cookies to take home! Everything about it was great & I am telling all my friends to go!

I took myself out to eat for restaurant week and found the place soothing--it's like an indoor Wave Hill. The salmon was awesome, with some fresh French cut beans and other crisp veggies, in a sauce that adds flavor but does not overwhelm. Sure, the service is a bit slow, but recipes relying on fresh veggies can't be cooked ahead of time. And you can always stare at the mural of a birch forest. Recommended for veggie/carnivore couples--something for each. A creative place.

I went to Butter for Restaurant Week and was completely turned off. I have been there for drinks before and I love the dimly lit cavernous ambiance. I would stick to drinks. They have a nice wine selection and can make a good martini. The small portions of "homemade" pasta were acceptable only bc it was so heavy and tasteless. The soup was half cold and tasted like I was eating cream straight from the carton. The chocolate cake for dessert was very rich, but a good save for an overpriced poor meal.
