I went years ago. At the time it was known for being one of the hottest spots in the city, a place to see and be seen. The food and wine were exquisite. One thing I remember being unpleasant were the acoustics in the main dining room, everything was amplified. I also remember the bathrooms being really interesting, each one like a little cave.

I really enjoyed my meal here during restaurant week! I hadn't been in about 8 years - last time I was at Butter, I was an overeager teenager trying to spot celebrities at the newest hip restaurant! Aside the point, but worth mentioning!
Everyone I was with was really happy with their resto week apps & entrees. I personally had the butternut squash soup (really rich & creamy, served with a little side of delicious salty popcorn) and the ravioli (very good, maybe too many mushrooms). I heard rave reviews of the pork shoulder, octopus, and pasta/sausage dish. As a dessert lover, I was disappointed in the chocolate cake - it was very, very thick, and just didn't seem like the right dish for this restaurant. It almost felt like it had been defrosted & should be served at a catering hall. However, I heard the gingerbread cookie ice cream sandwich was unbelievable - I guess I ordered wrong!
I'd definitely consider Butter again for a resto week special!
