    The restaurant is loud that is ok as the music was great. They ran out of one of the popular entrees early. Not good. The gazpacho was excellent. Our scallop entree was the most expensive thing on the menu and the four scallops were burnt. Our waitstaff was excellent and dessert was amazing. I like supporting farm to table but probably won’t return.

    Service was good, but a bit slow. Wine was good. not sweet though. and drinks were fair. farmers tan - meh. lemon drop was too small. portions for ceasar was nice but a bit bland. scallops dish was very good but also small. fish tacos were very good. it was overall a nice time, but improvements are needed before we return. very expensive for what it is.

    Began with a cocktail, the Baby Bee, had the appetizer special of stuffed squash blossoms which were delicious. Bolognese for my entree and the seasonal crisp dessert, which is enough to share.

    We enjoyed an outstanding meal at Buttercup, dining on the patio on a beautiful summer evening. The food was excellent: we started with a peach, burrata, and heirloom tomato "salad" drizzled with balsamic, and which looked like dessert. We followed that with two seafood entrées: scallops and halibut. Everything was cooked to perfection and beautifully plated along with vegetables. The wine-by-the-glass menu was more varied and interesting than most, and service was attentive but unobtrusive.

    We ate outside. Everything was great with the exception of the ridiculous number of emergency vehicles that went by while we were there. Weirdly busy night for emergencies in Natick.

    Salad and squash blossom appetizers were very good as were the cocktails. Shrimp ceviche also good. I order the fish tacos and my first taco was delicious but, as I have noticed here before, the fish is not consistent. The first taco was excellent but my second taco had fish that was fishy tasting. My co-diners said the same thing - some pieces of fish tasted better than others. Service was very good/excellent.

    We ate outdoors. The tables were nicely spaced. The only negative is you are seated next to a fairly busy road. Servers were friendly and checked in during our meal. The menu is not extensive, but there's choices for fish, chicken, meat and vegetarian. Two in our party had the halibut, one had Bolognese and one had scallops. The main dish portions are not huge, but more than enough to eat. Recommend the frie pickles and the truffle fries for extra sides. The menu ingredients are fresh and local.

    From the moment we entered we felt welcome and cared for. The scallops with sweet potatoes and corn was divine, as was the delicious bread accompanied by pools of pesto, spiced butter and tapenade. The upscale farm decor, with fresh flowers and mason jars for drinks, is so charming!

    Buttercup still Rocks, post-pandemic, just as it did before then. The food is terrific, pricing is fair, wines by the glass diverse, and service is perfect. A great local spot, even if for us it is 10 miles away. Easy parking, of course. Glad to see that the volume of customers is high.

    Everything you could want in a high-end (but casual) metrowest restaurant: terrific food, nice cocktails, really attractive space and decor, and great service. We will 100% go back (and chances are high I’ll have their outstanding bolognese again. Omg.).

    Food and drinks were outstanding. Service was extremely good. Restaurant is a beautiful space. Only complaints are minor, it was a little loud and a little warm (seemed the ac couldn’t keep up with the heat and the crowd). Nonetheless I will definitely be back.

    Buttercup was absolutely great - it was our best meal out in a long time. Starting with the service, we were so impressed by how well everything went. Lovely interior space, bright and attractive tables and decor. The service was extremely attentive but not at all intrusive at any point. Meals were delivered promptly and piping hot. Flavors were delicious, portions above average, and pricing very reasonable. We were truly amazed as we've had several experiences recently at similar level restaurants and Buttercup exceeded all of those in all categories. They also accommodated our requests happily. Seafood was exceptionally prepared. Needless to say: We will be going back frequently!

    This was my fourth or fifth time at Buttercup and it has never disappointed. It’s a bit out of my price range to become a regular spot but the food is delicious. More vegetarian (non-fish) options would be a great addition to the menu; I only go with non-vegetarian friends.
