    Butter Midtown has a menu that's full of hearty dishes, many of which are cooked in a wood-fired oven. Standouts include the Welsh rarebit, the roasted chicken, and the monster Tomahawk steak for two.

    The grilled double cut pork chop is amazing! Everything on this plate including the collard green sauerkraut was flavorful. This dish is a must. Have it prepared medium, great stuff!

    The bread is toasted to perfection, but its sea salt crusted top is the real showstopper. Absolutely divine. For an appetizer, order the Brussels sprouts with homemade ricotta

    The pan-seared branzino was delicious. Butter-cut beef fillet was legendary. A great spot for a romantic dinner. Also, a beautiful decor and a relatively quiet restaurant.

    Nice place, all the food was perfect (we tried the shrimp, NY steak, Mac and cheese, beignets). Our host was so nice! Expensive and noisy, but the food is worth it.

    The Pork Chop Ribs are so tasty. But the Halibut is a most. We share both an it was a great decision to be able to try it. The key lime ice pie was almost perfect.

    The entrees were amazing! Get the NY strip steak. Raspberry beignets were pretty good too, although a tad too tart. The veal bacon wasn't too great, mostly due to the sour mustard sauce.

    The raspberry beignets were outstanding! The vanilla dipping sauce took them to the next level. Everything on the dessert menu looked amazing.

    The interior decor is enough to check this place out. I have gone for restaurant week but the service is always fantastic and they will give you as much bread and fancy butter as your heart desires

    This place is definitely special. Try the pear cocktail - to die for. Also, the raspberry beignets are their signature dessert for a reason. Take your time here. Enjoy every bite.

    Great prix fixe lunch for $35. The chicken liver toasts are excellent and so was the salmon special.

    As much as I love the ambiance here the place is starting to feel dated. Unimaginative cocktail list needs help. Why do the straws come with paper on top? Is this a diner??

    Try the veal bacon. This and the primitvo wine mustard on top definitely gives pork bacon a run for its money.

    They drip hot caramel over the top of it so it sizzles briefly and then freezes into this candle-like beauty. Read more

    Service is suuuuper slow but the food is tasty. Ask for Salmon with cranberry potatoes and a side of broccoli.

    Definitely exceeded expectations. I'm with everyone about that Brussels sprouts appetizer...excellent. Cocktails are also great, but they better be at those prices.

    Drinks run a bit pricey, so your best bet is to split a bottle of wine at the bar and an order of very good fries.

    butter is a fine dining experience. I do however advise it make a reservation it gets busy but defiantly worth the wait

    If you're lucky, you might catch Iron Chef Guarnaschelli there. If not, you can always get an autographed photo.

    This used to be a playground for celebrities, now it’s a fun place to have a fancy dinner, especially if you get seated downstairs.

    Venue is big and gorgeous. With Alex Guarnaschelli's name, it doesn't have a problem filling that space. Meal food is great but I was not quite satisfied with desserts...

    can't go wrong with anything on the menu, but what shines is the ghost margarita and the beignets

    Food was good, the subtle use of just the potato skin with the fries gave a different texture to good house fries.

    Didn't make it out for Monday night? Go for dinner any other day of the week—it will more than make up for it. Chef Guarnaschelli definitely know's her way around a menu.

    When I read the name of the restaurant I was expecting well...butter. To my joy it was more than that. If you can't pick up my sarcasm then forget you. FYI: I hate Foursquare.

    The chicken breast is very moist. Not a single dry piece. Just the way I like it.

    wasn't impressed with their food during restaurant week, BUT holy crap when we came back for their normal menu, we were blown away! Hudson Valley Foie Gras & Raspberry Beignets were to die for!

    Decent pre-fixe for lunch. Cauliflower entree was unique and good. Skate wing was served pretty cold & needed a side dish to make it a meal. Loud. Not great for conversation.
