    Pretty Good - for restaurant week....

    I've been to quite a few restuarants during restaurant week - July 2010. This is definitely one of the better places, good food, good service, good wine. Typically I feel like I get lesser quality food because I am participating in restaurant week, but not at Butter - it was delish.

    It was good

    Went here for restaurant week. The food was good and so was the service. My favorite part about the meal was the Butter Martini. It was sooo good. Not too sweet with just a hint of alcohol, it was the perfect mix! Don't know if I would come here on a regular night as they are a bit overpriced. But if you add in a celeb or 2 I would have to make an exception.

    Star Search

    OK, maybe my Ed McMahon hosted show "Star Search' title for my review is retro, but I wanted to see Bono slurping Linguini, or perhaps a C-lister like Jordan Sparks. I was all dolled up. Zebra skin shiny leggings, roman sandal stilettos, and a shift top to stop traffic. But I could have worn (shudder) polyester and been OK. I had a delicious meal - yes, it is delicious. But where were my celebs? I do not care what the precious reviewers below say. We know celebs make a scene. But good food adds.

    Go for the food, not the clientelle

    I dined at Butter for Restaurant Week and found the food to be very good. The appetizer (shrip and summer pea ravioli) was better than the main course (veal), which was a bit salty for my taste. The food was quite good for the price. The service was friendly and helpful too. But what's all this about needing to see celebrities? Me, I wouldnt know a 'gossip girl' from a garbage man. You want great food, head to Butter, You need to see Paris Hilton, turn on the E network and heat up a TV dinner.

    ok for restaurant week

    went to Butter for restaurant week last night and it was mediocre as far as restaurant week goes. had the squid salad for an appetizer (good), braised beef short ribs as a main dish (ok) and the chocolate cake as a dessert (awful). the atmosphere of the restaurant is quiet and airy, the wait staff is friendly, but the food was just not what i would expect from a restaurant in that price range - rather on the bland side. maybe they shaft you on restaurant week, but that's not very smart b/c if it was really good i would come back and pay full price.

    where's the service?

    it appeared that the tasting menu was in effect last night, but waiting over 35 minutes between salad and entree is still a bit extreme. one of our party appeared invisible to the server--the server first poured wine for four of our group of five, ignoring the fifth. then left dessert menus for only four, again ignoring the fifth. we tried two different desserts, waiting 20 minutes to receive them, and found them both to be substandard. overall the food was reasonable, but the experience was not. i had high hopes, but don't expect to return.
