Been twice now and food is good, service was great first time but pushy second. However steak was cooked well and great piece of meat. Scampi starter was enjoyable. Well worth a visit.

I've been to The Butchers shop & Grill at Mall of the Emirates and The Walk at JBR. The food was good at the mall, service could have been a bit quicker but it lacks atmosphere and beer. I wouldn't suggest the mall for a romantic evening out but great to sit down after shopping with friends and family. Lot's of noisy children and with the bright lights you can definitely see what you are eating. The restaurant at the walk has a bit more ambience but still no beer. The food looked and tasted exactly the same in both restaurants, I guess that's what you get with a franchised chain.

I'd like to say the steaks here are awesome but in reality they are just a bit above 'good'. Nothing wrong with them but the restaurant has lost its drive and essence since it franchised and I'd not recommend it particularly for steaks but within the MoE, its probably the best choice.

I have eaten several times at Butcher shop in Mall of Emirates, we know very well this brand from South Africa, it has the same food quality as the original restaurants of this brand in Cape Town or Johannesburg. We like very much the boerewors, we buy them to take home.

Last month I had been invited for a business dinner at Butcher Shop in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; there actually the ambiance is far better then in Mall of Emirates Dubai, as it has a proper feel of a restaurant, bring self contained in its own building : same quality of steaks and other typical South African fare.

All together, it is a steakhouse out of the ordinary and worth a visit.

We tried the espedata and the Florentina escalope
Both were really fine, particularly the escalope very tender and crunchy at the same time, I wonder how they do it that good

We also tried garden salad which was not bad at all
Generally it's a very good lunch experience with a good service
