My wife and I visited the restaurant last night to celebrate her birthday. I had made reservations in advance for 6:45 pm. The only reason I made a reservation here was because Manny's and Murray's were booked. We arrived a little before our reservation time.

I was all set to declare it overhyped, but Butcher and Boar lives up to its praise. Service was excellent. Everything we had was delicious.

While expensive, portions are huge...I think we ate leftovers for three meals. Be prepared... More

We really enjoyed the steak tartare appetizer! It was fabulous and hands down the best we have ever had. It is seasoned perfectly and served with pickled red onions,dijon aioli and their own baked flatbread. The rest of our meal was just ok. Do not know how to make a good old fashioned---no muddled fruit in it. Our server was... More

Really enjoyed dining at the Butcher and the Boar - food is excellent, and the service was very good. A little too pricey for me, but the quality was excellent.

Nice bar for drinks before followed by a great selection of meat dishes on the menu. Hard to fault if that's what you're looking for.
