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.

    My thirteen year old requested a steak out dinner for himself and his brothers for his birthday. I had been to Bourbon Steak for a number of great grown-up dinners but wasn't sure how this would play out. Huge success. They put us (appropriately) off to the side but far from treating us like an inconvenience they made an event of the whole meal. Not only was the food fantastic but the staff put on a real (impromptu) show explaining the different cuts and different types of steak. The boys loved it. It's a given that a meal for four at Bourbon Steak is an investment, shall we say, but this whole experience was well worth the price of admission.

    We dined here for a birthday celebration, and the food was outstanding! The rolls they brought to the table were just out of the oven and were delicious. I ordered the Wagyu beef, and it was absolutely the best steak I've ever had. The restaurant is a little pricey, but worth it! We will definitely return to Bourbon Steak.

    This used to be one of my favorite restaurants but after my last visit I was very disappointed. I ordered my filet medium rare and it came well done. I hate sending things back but it was inedible so returned it. It came back still overcooked but I suffered through it anyways because the rest of my party was almost done with their meals. I ended up eating about half and taking the rest home for my dogs. In the past when things have happened we've been taken care of much better but this time they did nothing to make up for it. I know this restaurant researches their diners beforehand so maybe if I made the reservation under my husbands name like I used to we'd get better service...

We went to celebrate an anniversary, and everyone from the hostess to the maitre d came by to wish us a happy anniversary, they provided a round of sparkling wine on the house, and were just phenomenal. Great for a special occasion!

    Great food and great overall service. The only reason I didn't give the service 5 stars was because of the sommelier. He quickly gave us our bottle of wine and had ZERO interest in answering questions or talking about the wine. He never returned to ensure things were going well regarding the wine. He was the only negative that we experienced.

The food was delicious, the service was excellent and they were very accommodating when we wanted to order from both the main dining and bar menu to be able to try and share different appetizers before our main course. Will definitely be going back for a date night!

    Despite being next to a table with an extremely loud, boorish and perhaps inebriated gentleman, we had a very good meal and terrific service at Bourbon Steak....shared a huge porterhouse steak, with terrific sweet and sour eggplant as a shared appetizer (it's normally a side, and the portion was easily more than enough for two)....our sides for the steak were excellent mushrooms and a middling baked potato. Bourbon Steak's bar has an astonishing list of spirits....including dozens of bourbons....and our drinks were great. It's expensive, but worthy of a special occasion.

    My cousin, from Tennessee, was in DC for business. She wanted to go out for dinner. She mentioned how much she liked the steak at one of 'those' chain resturants. I told her that I believe a better option is available, but I've never been. She was game for my choice so I invited two additional folks and made reservations for 6:30. We were all very pleased with the food and service. From the moment we drove up to the Four Seasons' until we walked out of Bourbon Steak three hours later, everything was great, people were highly attentive and personable. We ordered the porterhouse, the the ribeye, the duck and artic char. Note: Ahi Tuna Tartar was my appetizer. The server put on a small show as he presented and plated the tuna--Awesome!

    Had a very nice overall experience with my wife. I had the 28oz ribeye and my wife had the 18oz strip. Both cooked perfectly and very tasty, however not $85 and $65 dollar tasty. Great wine selection, so that was an added bonus. Bottom line is that Bourbon is a great dinner destination and I would recommend to a friend.

    Our recent experience at Bourbon Steak was perfect. The food is, of course, amazing (the three members of my group all had different steaks) but the service is what pushes Bourbon Steak over the top. Even my grumpy 70 year old Dad commented that the service was perfect. Our waitress provided just the right amount of guidance on the menu, made great recommendations, and seemed to sense exactly when we needed her. The sommelier seemed to read my mind, and found us the perfect northern Italian Nebbiolo, right in our price range. The unexpected extras, too (three styles of fries with dipping sauce that arrive unexpectedly, delicious hot buttered rolls) made this just a wonderful time. Definitely recommend.

The truffle mac and cheese is a must. Many steak options, but also fish, duck, and pork. Very pricey, but worth the splurge for a special occasion.

    My husband took me to Bourbon Steakhouse to celebrate 6 months post bone marrow transplant and he could not have made a better selection. Literally everything we ordered was amazing. It is worth noting that the Wagyu Flat Iron was the best steak I have ever had and I have been to a lot of steakhouses. The magic mushrooms are also delicious with their steak. Bourbon is not cheap but you leave really full and beyond satisfied with your meal.

    My first experience at Bourbon Steak was NOT a disappointment. The service was impeccable, the wine list was long, the liquor choices were abundant, and the food was just incredible. The Bourbon Steak is charismatic and the place to be. The noise level was louder than I had anticipated and would have disrupted a romantic evening, but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

    Oh, my--what a wonderful meal we had! the only drawback of the whole evening was the elevated noise level (but it was an indication of the enjoyment diners were having). We all enjoyed our food immensely. My duck breast was heavenly. We highly recommend the fois gras for a starter and the figgy pudding for dessert, too. It was a special evening. The wait staff was helpful, knowledgeable, and personable. To a person, from the people who opened our car doors, to the people at the host stand, to the servers: all were friendly and that friendliness seemed truly sincere.

    The atmosphere was festive but not too loud, and the service was prompt and friendly. My children enjoyed the wonderful French Fry Trio as we waited for our appetizers to arrive. Our steaks were delicious and the Brussels sprouts, mac and cheese, and mushroom sides were all exceptional. My salad was a bit too tart for my taste, which might have been remedied by a few more dried cherries. (I counted only two.) The figgy cake dessert was unique and delicious. We will return, after our pocketbook recovers!

    Bourbon Steak is a winner from start to finish. The welcome was warm & engaging. The cocktails are some of the best in the city. I love the french fry amuse. The flat iron was the perfect medium rare. The kale is to die for. You can't ask for better service. My only comment is the noise level. The music from the bar bleeds over, and you have to talk with a raised voice. If management could tone down the noise, Bourbon Steak would be 5 stars in my book.

    Unusually good range of menu options, great meats of course, but a real surprise was the quality of the appetizers and side dishes. For example, we got paella along with the steaks that would put nearly every Spanish place to shame. And the baked potato with pancetta! Almost want to go just for the sides--wonder if they'd let me have some take out. Good drink menu too. Caveat emptor. This will tax most budgets, even more than other opulent steak joints around town, so plan accordingly and it makes a great place for special occassions. But what a way to burn $. This is living!
