Diner Reviews
  • "Amazing food and fantastic service!!! We got there early and were recommended to enjoy the last bit of happy hour then we were seated."
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "Overall not impressed with the quality of the food... Waitress not knowledgable about the menu and was very vague when asked a question. Good location, suboptimal dining experience ..."

  • "I've been wanting to try this place for years and we finally went this past weeekend. I've been looking for a good steakhouse in DC and District will not be that place. The quality of the meat was not impressive and it was not cooked to the way we liked it. We are not the type to send food back so just got through it. The most disappointing is probably the quality of the steak, I've had better cuts of meat at local/hole in the wall places across the country. The buffalo shrimp was very good. Other than the steak, everything else was fine. Still disappointed..."

  • "I thought the food was good. My only complaints are that my steak was a little under cooked. I asked for medium and it was medium rare. The bathrooms were disgusting. Overall the experience was good and my wife really enjoyed the crab cakes."

  • "Nice selection of beers. I enjoyed the dark brews that were pretty smooth and tasty. My biggest problem was with the food and the service. I went there during Restaurant Week so the selections were extremely short. Unfortunately, they only had one steak option and I guess everyone ordered the same dishes so they ran out of certain items (baked potato) . The service was not quick enough so i ended up with a slightly warm steak that was kind of tough to cut through and the mashed potatoes tasted like they were out of a box. Our reservation was around 7-730pm and we didn't really leave until 10pm. I enjoyed the Spinach artichoke dip and the cheesecake, and most definitely the beer. Won't recommend going during Restaurant Week."

  • "Went as a part of restaurant week and overall disappointed by the experience. Main dishes arrived only five minutes after appetizers, sent it back to have the same steaks return after another five minutes. Waiter was excellent and reordered immediately but then ended up with a Med-well steak instead of my Med-rare order. All was resolved thanks to the great waiter but overall, will not try again."

  • "We ordered from the Restaurant Week menu and 3 of us ordered the NY strip for our entree. We asked to have them cooked at different temperatures and they all came out wrong. The steaks also had hardly any seasoning. However, the buffalo shrimp and wedge salad were delicious. Our waiter did the best he could, but he disnt visit our table that much nor did he refill our water glasses until we asked. He wasnt all that knowledgeable about the menu either...maybe he was new?"

  • "My friend and I decided to try out this spot for DC resturaunt week. So glad we did. I had the spinach artichoke dip appetizer, NY strip and potatoes with a cheesecake for dessert. Phenomenal. Steak was cooked to perfection. I will be going back soon"

  • "Went to District Chophouse for a restaurant week lunch with coworkers and had a great experience. The service was fantastic, and they were very accommodating of our group of 8 right in the middle of prime lunch hour - they put us in a nice semi-private room. I called ahead to let them know it was a coworker's birthday and they brought out a piece of cake with a candle on it for him, free of charge! The portions were very generous and the food was good. Be sure to get the cheesecake for dessert!"

  • "The menu was traditional like many steakhouses. Stick to the basics-and make them taste good. Our wait or was polite and sociable."

  • "We went Thursday night for Restaurant Week and enjoyed our dining experience at District Chophouse. Our server was pleasant, prompt, and we did not feel hurried or rushed. I had NYsteak and it was cooked perfectfly. The Buffalo shrimp was delicious. We would definitely go back, even though as the place filled up it did get pretty noisy (not unusual). Great craft beers too."

  • "I had an awful burger craving...a real burger, not some fast food sorry excuse for a burger. The burger was perfect (black crust on the outside, mooing on the inside). Very high quality meat. My boyfriend's Delmonico had great flavor, but the texture was a bit uneven. Sides are serviceable. But let's not forget that yummy cornbread with the honey butter. I could make a meal out of just that! Service was amiable, but a bit slow. Overall, a good meal!"

  • "The food was excellent once we got it, but it we were at our table for 35 minutes before we even received our drinks. It was an hour by the time our food was served, yet my colleague's steak was rare even though she ordered it medium well. I also asked for a refill before receiving our check, and although the server took my glass he never brought a refill. The place had great potential, but we left disappointed."

  • "I've been waiting to come here and finally came for lunch for Restaurant week. The Crab bisque was delish with chunks of crab on top. Chop House Salad was large and yummy. The cheesecake dessert was SO GOOD. Oh and the corn bread that came in the beginning was also fabulous."

  • "I probably would have enjoyed myself more, but I couldn't get the musty smell of the carpet off my mind enough to enjoy my food."

  • "The DC Chop House was a very easy and good lunch experience for anyone in the downtown DC area. The atmosphere was nice, calm and intimate. The service was respectful but not overly chatty (allowing the dinning party to enjoy themselves). We didn't have to look for anything as the waiter anticipated our needs. As requested a booth was ready when I arrived for my reservation. Truly a nice experience...I'd recommend this spot."

  • "Food was really good but the waiter took forever to show up."

  • "2 friends and I chose to dine there because 2 of us had pleasant past experiences there and we liked the convenience to all of us coming from 3 different directions. The we had not seen one another in a long while and spent much time chatting but were not rushed by the server. The noise level was just right for our conversation. All of our food was at least good, mine very good. We shared a pan of cornbread. I had trout with crab meat, in which the crab meat was the standout, with a baked potato; a side of asparagus; and the flight of beers, an incredible value at $8. (Too bad I didn't have room to have another separate glass.) My share of the bill was $53, including a 20+% tip because we were there nearly 3 hours. I am by nature a miser bu"

  • "For the past several years we have visited the District Chophouse and have always enjoyed the occasion. Something has happened however to the quality of their waitstaff. They were certainly disorganized bordering upon incompetent. Upon our return to DC next summer we will return to Capital Grille in lieu of the Chophouse. Unfortunate!"

  • "Great lunch, too hot and noisy for dinner. Lunch was great, dinner was just ok. Very hot inside restaurant but dinner was just warm and very very noisy., Not a good choice for us. They were just too busy to make it a nice experiencde."

  • "DC came through for us in a BIG way. We had dinner before a show and each ordered the NY strip. It was served promptly and prepared exactly as ordered. And the steaks were huge, thick, and delicious. We took home half of one and enjoyed it the next night. We finished dinner in plenty of time for the show. Thank you DC and Justin."

  • "Upon arrival, the reception staff was very friendly and seated us promptly. At the table, we were greeted immediately and our server was very friendly and attentive. We had small children in our party and they were given a coloring page menu along with some crayons so that helped to keep them occupied. All the food was great and the staff was very accommodating. Thank you for a great experience, we will definitely make a return trip to this restaurant."

  • "I used to love the salads here. The chopped chicken was dry. The lettuce was mostly iceberg and whitish. The citrus vinagrette was unpleasant. I've had better salads at Wendy's. I won't be going back to this restaurant or recommending it. The service was very good though."

  • "I have frequent the chop house for many years and have to admit for the past two years the food quantily have not been good and was alarmed to find out that they serve PROCESSED food. Can't the cooks cook a REAL turkey AND the portions are very small and have cut back considerably for the price. If I am going to pay $42.00 for a meal I want to FEEL full, I'm not paying for the fancy designs on my plates I want FOOD! The last couple of times I have visited was not good. Not sure if I would go back or tell anybody about it. Clyde's and Legal Seafood will be my next venture. Sorry Chop House you're not up to par."
