    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.

    Service just wasn't good at all, and for the prices, the food should be way better and more substantial!

    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

    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.
