“love the atmosphere and the decor, and despite being very busy, this is a great hot spot in the South End.”
“The Steak Tartare was good enough to be a dessert and the Charcuterie Plate was an excellent way to get a small taste of everything.”
“They gave a perfect recommendation for a wine pairing with our food, and made us feel so welcome and relaxed that I felt like we were old friends!”
“we had a nice time there, the pasta was actually very good, nice wines and great cold cuts and cheeses to choose from.”
“As much as I enjoyed my experience, I must admit that I was a bit dissapointed in the lack of sides on the menu.”

nice neighborhood place.
we had a nice time there, the pasta was actually very good, nice wines and great cold cuts and cheeses to choose from. we especially liked the organic vegetables.
we'll be back
for the Butcher in you!. I am quite the carnivore, so my Butcher Shop experience was delightful. The restaurant does not take reservations, but my date and I only had to wait 30 minutes. We enjoyed a great glass of wine while standing around the "butcher block"... if that's what the giant wooden table taking up most of the restaurant space is called. We ended up sitting at the bar. The bartenders and staff were extremely helpful and knowlegeable and made great recommendations. I ordered the hanger steak and loved its spiciness. My date had venison for the first time ever and LOVED it. As much as I enjoyed my experience, I must admit that I was a bit dissapointed in the lack of sides on the menu. It doesn't deter my desire to go back, though.
User review by gordonatmit2003. Only had drinks, staff was very helpful in selecting wines. We're definitely planning on coming back for dinner!
Serious foodies. Very attentive and informed employees. Both the cooks and the server knew answers to in depth questions. Food is pricey, but well worth it! Definitely for serious foodies. I'll go back!
Very Pricey. Great concept. Good wine. Wish the food offerings were more varied. BTW, while the quality of the meat is good, save your money and go the other side of town at Savenor's (which believe it or not is cheaper) or John Dewer's in Newton- their cuts are just as good and in some cases at half the price.
Lovely. I couldn't believe how friendly and helpful each staff member was at this place. They gave a perfect recommendation for a wine pairing with our food, and made us feel so welcome and relaxed that I felt like we were old friends! The steak tartare was incredible, as was the fois gras. Can't wait to go back!
Worth Checking Out. A very helpful staff will help you navigate the small but inventive menu at this French inspired Butcher Shop. The Steak Tartare was good enough to be a dessert and the Charcuterie Plate was an excellent way to get a small taste of everything. Good ambiance and a wine list worth learning about. Enjoy!
Everything Barbara Lynch does with food
and wine seems to work very well.
We're big fans of her excellent dining spot
near the State House.
