    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!

    Atmosphere is hot, food not

    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.

    Not like Buttah...

    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.

    Excellent Dining Experience!

    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!

    Fresh Veggies in the Woods

    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.

    Butter usually adds flavor

    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.

    Butter-service and food A+

    I just went to Butter for restaurant week. The food was excellent and our server was very friendly and prompt. I'll definitely go back.
