Diner Reviews
  • "We celebrated my husband's 45th birthday this weekend at J&G Steakhouse at the W. The location was great/convenient, our fish entree and sides absolutely fabulous and the Frog's Leap wine was a perfect match for our meal. The service was also well informed, not too overly attentive and very appropriate for the setting. The warm chocolate cake and ice cream sent by the restaurant to my husband for his birthday was well received and very much appreciated. Thank you again! Afterwards we were able to walk across the street to the Hamilton to hear some live music - highly recommend J&G Steakhouse for a special occasion."

  • "This wasmy favorite place in DC. however since my last visit try redecorated and changed the menu. They got rid of the table cloths and now use a rubber place mat. More of a coffe shop feel than a luxury restaraunt. Part of the old speak was it was next to the White House and had a stuffy executive feel."

  • "The ambience was wonderful. My wife and I had the fillet and it was the best we've had in years. It was expensive for us but we new it would be. It's well worth the money for a special occasion."

  • "I took my wife here for her 30th birthday, and it was torrential rain outside. We had some trouble finding the valet for the restaurant outside the W, but once we got in, we found our group (15 people total) and initially we ran into a snag, as the tables were not cleared up for us. However the manager did a great job to alleviate everyone's concerns, providing us with drinks in a waiting lounge, until he could clear up an area for the entire group in one table! That was a surprise, and so was the exquisite service and food. All the staff were excellent to ensure we remained satisfied. After dinner, the group went upstairs to POV and the manager made sure we were able to take an elevator straight up and skip the long line outside!"

  • "The service was great but the food was pretty average. The steak was too salty (and I'm almost never one to think something is too salty) and I hate putting sauce on my steak but I had to in order to mellow out the saltiness. For the price, you could do a lot better."

  • "This is by far the best steak I have had in DC area. Very tasty and juicy, the side order veggies were also very tasty, not like those offered in other steakhouses. Highly recommend this restaurant though the menu is pricey."

  • "Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. Great recommendations from our server. Room was a little too bright for me to give this a check in the romantic box, but the room is beautifully decorated and folks were dressed for a night out, which is nice."

  • "It was a good steak but I've made better. The bone marrow side was huge and fed all 4 of us, but the Brussels sprouts didn't even seem to feed one person and the truffles were no exsistant in the mac and cheese."

  • "We went to J&G for my wife's birthday and the food was great. The price was a little high for me but you get what you pay for great service, good food and most important for me is no waiting like the typical breakfast restaurants. I will definitely return and recommend to anyone."

  • "service was great...server was there when needed but unobtrusive. very polite. valets had to change a tire on our car and they did so while we enjoyed lunch. impeccable service all around!"

  • "We went to J&Gs to celebrate my birthday. It being a'special' birthday we elected to wear formal evening attire. Despite most other diners being more casually dressed we did not feel out of place. The atmosphere, service and food quality were all of a high standard. Relatively expensive but worth it for a special occasion."

  • "This was our second trip to J&G for dinner, and it was just as outstanding as the first visit. We each started with french onion soup, then shared the Tomahawk steak with Brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes on the side. The first bite of the tomahawk was one of the better bites of food I have ever eaten - a perfectly seared, medium-rare steak. The service was attentive but unintrusive and extremely professional. We love going to J&G, and we will absolutely be back."

  • "Overall the experience was good. Wine list was great. Seafood was very good.'Yellowtail appetizer was AMAZING. I would Go back just for that. Steak was good, a little over seasoned but cooked well."

  • "Love the food, location, service, & atmosphere at this place. Had french onion soup and grilled salmon over parsnip mashed puree and both were superb. My colleague had a tuna burger and said it was delicious. Good lunch value menu too and ideal for a business meeting in/near White House."

  • "My team and I went here for a team lunch. For being called a "steakhouse" there were not many options for steak for lunch. There were a total of about 3 options for steak. It is overpriced but that's normal for hotel restaurants (in the W Washington). We ordered the calamari for the table and that was decent (can't really go wrong with calamari). I ended up ordering from the "Express Lunch" menu which allows you to pick two items (but not two entrees) from that menu for $19. I got the crab cake and the steak frites. The crab cake is different from what you'd expect - it comes with grapefruit and avocado and is very zesty; it would fit as a summer dish - very refreshing. The steak frites were decent."

  • "The tables were way too small to even hold the delivered food. The whole restaurant was basically empty and they sat us at a very small table. Overall service was good and the food was okay but we did not like the seating at all."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Great steak dinner! Biggest issue was having to wait with a reservation and they had plenty of empty tables in the restaurant. After the wait they seated us at a table that had been empty the whole time."

  • "I highly doubt Jean Georges ever walked into that restaurant or maybe we are not talking about the same Jean Georges here…"
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "After dining here I am utterly amazed that the name of the restaurant includes the word "steakhouse". From the decor, to the ambiance, to the menu selection (especially regarding steaks), nothing about this place says steakhouse. The menu is absolutely pathetic, listing only 4 cuts of meat...four! I think the local Applebee's has more cuts of steak available on their menu. In addition to the extremely overpriced cuts available on this limited menu, the waiter did not even attempt to describe the cuts, the restaurant's cooking methods, etc. as is typical at a true high end steakhouse. While the service was not bad, it was not exceptional and not close to the level expected. Finally, they were out of 2 beers from a horrible menu."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We found J&G to be a gem of a working lunch place. The restaurant was not very crowded and not loud at all, so conversation was quite pleasant. We ordered off of the express menu and had an exquisite hanger steak and frites, which came either with a starter or appetizer, although you could order both for a bit more. We both had the J&G Cheesecake with Poached Pear and gingerbread ice cream which was really a treat and so "worth the bite". Service was outstanding. Almost better than the food were the so comfortable wingback chairs that we sat in - felt like sitting in a cloud! So relaxing with a view of the Washington Monument, I could have stayed here all afternoon. Will definately recommend to colleagues and visit again."

  • "The food and service were amazing. We were there on Valentine's Day, and were able enjoy a nice dinner at a leisurely pace - there was no rushing, and our meals came out perfectly. The only thing we didn't quite like was the fact that many of the tables are very crowded - you are sitting very close to the table next to you so it is a bit difficult to have a private conversation. Other than that, a great dining experience."

  • "The W Hotel Washington is a landmark and the locale is prime Washington spot. This restaurant makes you feel as if you are "Washington-special" as the service is exceptional. The challenge we found was the food, at lunch. The ceasar salad had so much mustard it came to the table with a bright yellow hue. The portions for a meat entree were small and came on a huge plate making it seem even moreso. The appetizer and desserts were outstanding. And the view and ambience more than made up for any challenge. I will frequent this restaurant to create a special experience and will keep trying menu options until a fully complex and satisfying entree emerges."

  • "The dinner with my girlfriend was excellent. We got an appetizer, main and a side and shared everything. It was plenty of food and gave a great mix of flavors. The layout of the restaurant was the only issue. There was hardly anyone there while we ate, but the seating still felt like we were a little cramped for space. The design could have allowed for more room."

  • "Great food in a beautiful space. Perfect for a date, anniversary or just a good meal. A transplanted foodie from New York, this is definitely one of the better restaurants I've been to in DC. Enjoyed the steak during a restaurant week. But I'll be back--restaurant week or not."

  • "I had been to J&G once before and loved it. After this experience I will not return. The service was terrible, I mean terrible. And the food was not great either. I sent a detailed letter to the management and got a form response. I was expecting so much better of J&G and it was a total let down. I would not recommend this to anyone (and I used to recommend it all the time)."
    Dined on 1/16/2014
  • "WE went there for restaurant week. We were looking forward to a nice lunch however the meal was not extraordinary. $20.14 for soup and sandwich a pie I would pay if it was good. YOU can get better deal at other restaurant who participate in restaurant week. The soup was good but the Cesar salad was less than mediocre. The lettuce was in small pieces with over the counter crouton. Pieces of steak in the sandwich was way too cooked.The pie, I have had better at some of the diners around. Overall I would not recommend J&G restaurant."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "The salad was spicy and not tasty. The flank steak sandwich was saturated with too many carmelized onions. The apple crisp was the only good part of the meal.this was an overpriced restaurant and a disappointment during restaurant week"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Recently dines at J&G with a group of buddies who appreciate great steaks. No complaints at all on any dishes from anyone. A big unique décor for a steak house - not your normal dark wood but light and contemporary. It is not an inexpensive meal (with steaks ranging over $50) but a fine meal."

  • "We waited about 5-10 minutes before we were greeted by our server. He seemed annoyed that he had to work or even answer questions...the restaurant was pretty empty. We had to ask if we could order our food... the meal was subpar. The steak was over cooked. The seasoning on the fish was too salty. Dessert however was delish. The waiter forgot our coffee..sat around for maybe 15 min before he brought us the check before he was reminded again...he did however bring us coffee on the house becausr it was forgotten. For the restaurant being at the W you would have thought the experience and the attention to detail by the wait staff would be excellent. Our waiter was distant...and only gave us attention when we showed to be annoyed."

  • "Both my double lamb chops and my wife's filet mignon were inferior cuts of meat - tough and not sufficiently trimmed."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "The menu was very limited and the service was hot and cold. The manager came by to ask us how things were going. My friend is a slow eater and the staff kept asking to take her plate. Then when we were done we waiting 20 minutes for our dessert. Also, I made reservations on Tuesday for Thursday and they called me everyday to confirm the reservation. Very annoying. I have an extremely busy job and it was disruptive and at one point I considered cancelling. I would not recommend this restaurant."
