David's ReviewWe are from California and on Vacation. We found out our friends also from California would be in DC the same time we would. So I set up a dinner date with them. Our hotel, the Hampton Inn had you on their list of steak houses that they recommend. I checked your website and menu and it looked very good. Our dinner was great. The food was fantastic. The wine excellent and the beer was good too.
The only down side was that it was over crowded and extremely loud for me.
Our waiter was outstanding.
I would recommend your place to my friends and I will go back when ever I am in town.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good time!I am very glad I made an early reservation, but honestly I have never had a problem here and it is one of my favorite restaurants in DC!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMChophouse was excellent forChophouse was excellent for dinner during my visit for police week. The food was great as well as the service.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways consistentthat would be consistently good food, service and ambience. Love the energy and crowd.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMChophouse Before Caps GameVery busy night made for a loud dining room. Although very busy the service was outstanding. From quickly being served a drink in the upstairs bar while waiting for the table to be ready to outstanding service during dinner the waitstaff performed outstandingly. We only ordered burgers, but they were very well prepared and cooked properly. My only issue was that my burger came with two bun bottoms and no top. Their expediter was probably slammed, but everything else was so on target I didn't expect such an error. I didn't complain; I'm confident that if I had they would have jumped through burning hoops to fix it.
Great place for a good meal before a Verizon event.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunchWe went for Sunday brunch and had a great meal at a reasonable price.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMChophouse has game time downIt was 60 minutes till concert and was concerned that the Chophouse won't be able to get the meal out without feeling rushed. The did an awesome job of attending to our needs quickly, never felt rushed and the food was delicious. I recommend this place for any Verizon Center events... a great meal, timely service and never felt rushed.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDistrict Chophouse Shines!We had not been for quite a while. Prior to Taylor Swift's concert on Saturday night, we has a FABULOUS dinner at DC!
I recommend it very highly. Remember to make a reservation b/c it is very popular dining spot!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as always! EverythingGreat as always! Everything I've ever ordered has been prepared perfectly.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI have only had the pleasureI have only had the pleasure of dinning at the District Chophouse a few times, but I cannot sing its praises loud enough. The atmosphere is fun, and the building is beautiful. The wait-staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. And the food is fresh, delicious, and the selection is optimal. Not overwhelming in selection nor is it to sparse. And to top it all off they bring fresh cornbread to the table as a starter. You cannot beat that.
In all it is one of the best places I have eaten in the city!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak and Beer!!Great food all around. Beer selection was good! Large portions, so order accordingly. Not the world's greatest steak, but I would say very good and rank it above all the casual steak houses. Meat is thick cut and cooked to my order. Very flavorful and was not disappointed. We left very satisfied :)5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMNice atmosphere, the foodNice atmosphere, the food was good except that they brought me the wrong side and that one person in our party thought his steak was a bit tough. What was nice was that the waiter was very friendly, talkative and helpful, rather than ignoring us, we actually had a real conversation with him.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious steaksI don't get into Washington DC often so when I do I always stop at the District chophouse. great food great service and delicious selection of beers.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steaks, great beer,Great steaks, great beer, what more do you need.
If you do need more, the service is great also.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDistrict ChophouseAlways a favorite in Penn Quarter. Food is excellent, and service is fast. Great for events at the Verizon Center, when guests are in town sightseeing, or just for a night out. Steaks and prime rib are superb. Be sure to get the onion rings (as long as you have more than one person to share) They are huge!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent for CarnivoresAlthough I have never tried their beers and ales, this is my favorite restaurant in the Verizon Center area. They specialize in steaks and chops, and serve some of the best steak in DC. The service is always excellent and the ambience lively but not excessively so. It's also half a block from the Gallery Place Metro station. I'm an elderly woman who often dines alone and doesn't order drinks - not a preferred patron at most restaurants - but this restaurant makes me feel very welcome.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a business lunchThe food is good and the ambience very suitable for a business lunch. The background noise is relatively low so it does not interfere with conversation.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place, food, and service!Great place, food, and service! We arrived early for a reservation and were told we would likely be seated early, but then waited 45 minutes while people without reservations were seated first. There is no waiting area, so you end up standing in the way of servers.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMvery good restaurant in Penn QuarteVery nice restaurant in an urban setting, amongst several nice eateries in the vicinity. Service, food and ambience were all very good.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyableWe selected this restaurant for its location near Ford's Theater as we were attending a musical there later. Our reservation was for 5:30 in order to provide enough time to dine before the 7:30 show. We actually were served and departed by 6:30. We did not feel rushed, however. They just served the food in a prompt manner. We did not have appetizers or dessert which might have stretched the dining time longer. The staff all seemed attentive and welcoming. I enjoyed the prime rib and my husband enjoyed a chicken salad. Both were tasty...not over the top delicious, but enjoyable.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMVery cool themed place. LastVery cool themed place.

This was my first time to the restaurant. The restaurant appearance was nice, and had a good feel about it. Our server "Mark" was great, engaged us in the right amount of conversation and kept us smiling the entire time. The food was great, all three of us ate everything on our plates. I have already mentioned this restaurant to a few friends as "the place we need to go to!" I can't wait to try something else from the menu, I had a hard time choosing what I would eat and chose the salmon, which was cooked just right. See you very soon!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMStaff very responsive andStaff very responsive and helpful with the menu. Waiter made excellent suggestions.

If I had to complain about anything, it would be the crab bisque being more tomato based than cream. However, in all fairness, the description did say that. The server was vetty pleasent, very helpful and very attentitive. I would definitely recommend it to people. The ribeye I got was phenomenal.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMYou can always count of good food!You can always count on good food and service at the DC Chop House.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMRice pilaf was delicious,Rice pilaf was delicious, first time I tried it.

We would definitely return to this restaurant.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMYou can never go wrong withYou can never go wrong with Chop House. Although the service was a little slow, they were very accomodating when we had to add a person to our party at the last minute. The French Toast was a little over-cooked, but it was still wonderful. (Definitely split that dish if you order it!)3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful old building withBeautiful old building with great food and attentive staff. Convenient to National Gallery and American Art museum.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous food, close to theFabulous food, close to the Verizon Center...perfect venue prior to a game!!!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOvercooked to non-perfectionI was really excited about my filet mignonette that I ordered cooked at medium. When it was delivered to my table it was overlooked leaving the tiniest hint of pink in the middle an more chared on the outside than expected. It seemed too much of a hassle to send my steak back to get one cooked the way I had requested with it being so busy on a Friday evening.
I'd expect a chophouse to be able to deliver a steak to be delivered cooked to my request when I am asked how I wish for it to be done. That just left a sour taste in my mouth for my first dining experience with District Chophouse.
It's a shame, because the wait staff was friendly, the ambiance couldn't have been more perfect, and the rest of the food was delicious.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meats and more...This place is consistently great. Nice menu selections, great preparation, very good service and fun atmosphere. I've had seafood, poultry and meat here and have loved every dish. Their side veggies are so buttery and oh so good, but not overcooked. The Chop Chop salad is awesome... Great key lime pie too! My mom came to visit and this is one of her fave spots in DC, especially for the crab cakes. Oh yeah: if you like cornbread, you gotta try it here; if you don't like cornbread, you gotta try it here!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a beautiful restaurant.This is a beautiful restaurant.

This is an energetic downtown restaurant. It's great for a group of friends and for quality food before a game at the Verizon Center. Not for a quiet, romantic evening.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI was here with a friend forI was here with a friend for his birthday. Kelly was our server and she was very good. The food was magnificent--I haven't had steak like that in forever, and my friend was very impressed with his porterhouse. The candles on our dessert (yummy yummy cheesecake) were so very thoughtful. We intend to return!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
