A word from Bourbon Steak - Four Seasons Washington DC
Featuring contemporary American fare with a focus on seasonal ingredients, BOURBON STEAK offers all-natural, organic and hormone free cuts of beef and the freshest seafood available worldwide. Prior to grilling, all meats at BOURBON STEAK are first poached to mouthwatering tenderness-red meats in butter, lamb in olive oil and pork in bacon fat.

Keeping with the nation’s capital’s emphasis on power daytime dining, BOURBON STEAK is one of the first Michael Mina restaurants to serve lunch. Guests can anticipate new salad entrées accompanied by homemade, fresh from the oven bread, each specifically created to complement the salad it is paired with.

Rockwell Group of New York composed a design scheme which reflects the elegant informality of Mina’s modern American cuisine, while also paying tribute to the classical stature of the hotel. Natural materials and crafted accents surround the space, from seeded and rubbed glass, to stitched leather and wood.

    We picked Bourbon steak for our parents' 30th wedding anniversary. They had heard so many good things about the restaurant and my brother and I decided to treat them to a special dinner. Everything, from the first greeting at the host stand to the good byes from the courteous valet was absolutely perfect! My parents felt pampered, as they were showered with attention from our amazing server, Paul W, to our sommeiler Winn and everyone else who came to check on us throughout the evening. The food was perfect, the mint julep my brother ordered was the best he's ever had. We wanted to make this a special dinner for my parents and Bourbon Steak did just that. Mom even teared at the end that we brought her to such a special place. Thank you Bourbon Steak team! We will be back!

    this resturant had a good atmosphere, romantic setting. Staff was attentive. The food however was a major disappointment. The menu options were dishes that tried to hard to be different, but failed in the attempt, ending up instead to be odd assortments that did not blend well and left a lot to be desired.

    I took my team out to lunch to say thank you to a member who was leaving for a new job. The service was great and we really enjoyed the food. We had mussels, wedge salad, that amazing buttery rolled bread, duck confit club sandwich, hanger steak and agnoloti (chestnut filled pasta in mushroom sauce). Everything was stellar.

    Overall quality of the meals was very good. However, there were a few of our favorites no longer on the menu such as the Wiener Schnitzel. My companion had the lobster pot pie, which contained too many mushrooms. She was a little disappointed, but liked her selection. My steak was cooked to perfection, and the side of spicy eggplant delicious.

    The staff was great, but the food was not as good as expected. I paid a lot of money for a mediocre tasting meal. They also serve you a lot of starters like fries, buns and an appetizer. After that, you are not that hungry anymore, but the service people frown at you when you won't have another starter or dessert. I had a filet mignon which tasted good though not extraordinary. I've had better ones before for a lower price. Plus, I think this place is extremely loud which won't give you a nice atmosphere for eating.

    Bourbon steak is the nicest restaurant I've ever been to in my life. My girlfriend and I both agreed that they served us the best steaks we've ever had. Some restaurants are expensive just for the sake of being fancy but Bourbon steak lives up to its prices.. the food is simply incredible. In addition to having an excellent food menu the main reason I chose the restaurant was because of their great selection of bourbon which didn't disappoint. While the service was impeccable, my only complaint is that the employees are almost like robots and have zero personality at all. The restaurant management is very courteous to its customers as well. I had a reservation but we were seated late so they brought us a complimentary glass of champagne.

  • filet mignon medium well
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    three of our dinner guests ordered medium well. The outside part of the filet mignon was over charred and almost hard. I had to saw through with the steak knife. Is this normal for medium well? The guests did not have the same experience of steaks that are tender and that slices through with minimal effort that I usually experience for mine cooked at medium. I advised the guests to not order medium well. I should have mentioned this during dinner.

    This restaurant starts out very strong with friendly maitre d' and lively dining room. Initial service is great, with fun freebees (fries could have been hotter) and quick service from the bar. After that, things tend to fall apart. Dishes for different diners at the table come out at different times, and attention strays to other tables. Servers can be reined back in, but why should we need to? The food is good, if slightly over-priced.

    This is one of the best restaurants ANYWHERE (this from a jaded New Yorker)! They did a great job putting together a birthday celebration for my son, and every aspect of the evening was perfect. The Wagu beef available by the ounce is expensive but a must try. Every side dish was inedible. Run, don't walk, to Bourbon Steak!

    We were in town for a wedding and our anniversary and we wanted to find a great steak restaurant. This restaurant had great reviews online and was recommended by a friend. This was hands down the best food we've ever had. We've been to many different places around the country and this is now at the top of our list. Everything from the bread to the steaks was cooked to perfection. Our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly, the manager came to ask how our dining experience was and we couldn't say enough good things. Great drink selection, atmosphere, and the price was honestly not over the top and worth every single penny. We've told many people about our experience there and we will definitely come back when we are in town again!

    I have gone to Bourbon Steak in San Francisco a few times and loved it. Having to be in Washington DC for business recently, I thought I would try the east coast version. Outstanding. The steaks were excellent, the wine list was terrific, the ambiance was great, and the service was top-notch. I will return to Bourbon Steak in DC the next time I am there, but I would surely return just for the hush puppies and the Semillon!

    My wife and I eat here 5-6x a year. The last few visits were moderate for them, and the price -in both service and food. But for her birthday we went back - and the service and food were were fantastic, and a reminder as to why we enjoyed them so much here. Very attentive, yet not hovering. Ahi tuna app is always outstanding. the Lobster pot pie…crazy good. Wagyu flat iron - 100% of time is fantastic. Enjoy…get a booth by window if you'd like to reduce the noise.

    The reviews were spot on for this restaurant! I researched in hopes of finding the premier steakhouse in DC, and boy did I ever! Bourdon was incredibly awesome in every way. Our dinner was certainly one of the best meals and experiences ever. Their steaks are delicious, however, being the bread lover that I am, their rolls were awesome! From now on, every trip to DC will include dinner here at Bourbon! Rowdy from Tulsa.
