Great Experience at Butterfield 8

I worked with the manager to organize a surprise 30th birthday party at Butterfield 8 in November and am just now getting around to complimenting her. She was totally helpful and offered many options for our party. We could have the back room (must spend a min amt), reserve several booths (no fee), and order some food. We reserved a few booths and they were cool about me bringing a cake I made. The staff was really nice, totally available when we needed them, but not intrusive. The bar is a step up from my usual ""dive bar"" hangouts but not much more expensive. It was a really great surprise party (even though the bouncer accidently asked the birthday girl if she was there for the surprise party--oops!) and everybody at Butterfield 8 helped make it special.

slow service

i was really excited to go here since the pictures of the restaurant looked awesome, so my friend and i decided to ht this place up for the dine about town week during lunch. i would have to say the service is slow as hell and the food wasn't even all that great. i think we all ordered the rib eyes. eh, i don't think i'd ever pay that much for food here.

the only good part of this meal was the dessert!!

The food is TO DIE FOR!!

Top five favorite places to eat in NY .... yes that's right top FIVE! :)
The ambiance in here is so where it should be. The lighting is just right .. not too bright .. not too dark. Perfect background for a fantastic dinner. The food is 'TO DIE FOR'! We had the mediterranean salad style salad --the best I've ever had!! My friend had one of their atlantic salmon dishes , and I ordered their sesame crusted ahi tuna --Wow, so yummy! We also ordered a glass of wine that was fabulous! I recommend to anyone.

Never knew about the Restaurant

So I went to Butterfield on a recommendation from a friend for dinner and i honestly had no idea it was a restaurant as well....ive been there for drinks with friends..(great time by the way)...but never for dinner...i must say i was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was completely different from its normal wild bar scene. My girlfriend had the Tuna and I had the rib eye...UNREAL! the food was cooked perfectly and the service was great....The waitress was great and really knew what she was doing...To top it off i had the best dessert ive ever had...COOKIE only advice is get so excited that i have a new favorite restaurant.

Better bars to be had in Manhattan

I went for drinks after work on a Friday, the bar was packed by 6pm and there was a DJ. We managed to get a table in the back which was much quieter and allowed for conversation. The spinach dip and chips was below average. The drinks were good, except one was served with a hair in it and the waitress didn't take it off the bill. This place is ok if you don't mind fighting the crowd and can overlook poor service.

Bartenders are great, Waitresses are horrible

All and all- this a great place to enjoy some after work drinks, the bartenders are great and make sure you don?t wait long for a drink (even when it is crowded). I highly advise against getting a table and having waitress service. A couple friends and I did and it was a disaster. To start off, they messed up our order. The real thing that got to me, was when we were brought our bill, we paid it (with cash) and the waitress never came back to collect. We handed it in to her, and an hour after when we were preparing to leave she re printed the bill out and accused us of not paying. It was a big mess, and to avoid any fights we paid the bill again. That was completely unacceptable!!!

Awesome Private Party

My company was having a happy hour in the private room in the back. My girlfriends and I got there early and had dinner first in the bar area. Our server was very nice and promt considering the bar area started to get an inflow of happy hour customers. When our happy hour started we had out own private bar in the back with a bartender that not only was extreamly nice but also remebered my drink order! We love this place and can't wait to come back!

Amazing place to throw a little birthday dinner...

Butterfield 8 (see website) currently offers a deal so that if it is your birthday, your dinner and a drink are complimentary if you go with a group. Butterfield 8 also offers great party deals with open bar discounts, which I didn't take advantage of!

The place was totally packed at 7:00 when we arrived for our dinner reservation, and we felt important being escorted by the hostess throught the crowd. Based on a virtual tour I'd seen on the site, I was given the booth/table I had requested in the back. The food was amazing, with great comfort foods, and a little flair to other comfort foods to give it a classy look on some dishes. I had a fabulous skirt steak, while my friends opted for wraps and sandwiches, but everyone loved their food and had a great time. I would recommend going here, especially for a birthday, when you eat for free! The service I got in the week before my birthday was impeccable and courteous, and the wait staff was also very nice. I'd return here for both the happy hour or a dinner! I shall be reocmmending Butterfield 8 to all my friends for their birthdays and hope to return soon!

Remember to sign up for the BU 8 Club to enjoy the birthday treatment!

BubbleGoose Tested. BubbleGoose Approved.

Great place to catch football on Saturdays, Sundays and Monday nights. Awesome special of $25 for unlimited beer and wings Sat & Sun. Where else can you get a deal like this?!? Great place for a private party - Check out their new bottle service. This place really knows how to hook it up. Hottest women around especially the staff. The dj is phenominal and has everything.

Great place to go.
