A word from STK - Washington D.C.
STK artfully blends two concepts into one—the modern steakhouse and a chic lounge. A large central lounge area is furnished with creamy leather banquettes and textured crocodile tiles, and is surrounded by an elevated dining room for more formal dining. Theatrical lights illuminate each table, while a DJ creates an energetic vibe throughout the entire space. STK Washington D.C. is located in Dupont Circle and is in close proximity to D.C. attractions as well as being in the heart of the best night life in the Nation's Capital. As anticipated, steak is the main attraction. STK offers small, medium and large cuts of meat, as well as naturally raised options and market fresh fish entrees. Aside from steak, signature items include Parmesan Truffle Fries; Lil’ BRGs; Shrimp Rice Krispies; Sweet Corn Pudding; and Jump Lump Crab Salad.

    You are essentially paying for the ambiance of the restaurant. The steak was mediocre and the live DJ's music was way too loud -- you couldn't hear the waiter nor the other people at your table.

    My experience at STK was wonderful! the food was outstanding but not for the calorie conscious. Our server was very knowledgeable and accommodating and helped to make a celebratory outing very special. Our group loved the music selection but the volume makes conversation challenging.

    Beautiful space - masculine, open, comfortable and light -- a good place for business lunches because tables are close to each other and noise level is low. The food was delicious and straightforward --I had the STK sandwich, which was the best steak sandwich I've ever had - flaky bread, steak cooked to perfection, and olives and cheese imported a rich element. Service was attentive. I would definitely go again, and again.

    I really enjoyed the ambiance, popular selection of music playing, outstanding service and entertaining crowd! The food was great but if you love steak Capital Grill is Outstanding and by far exceeds STK in my personal opinion. I went to a late (10pm) dinner on a Saturday night to enjoy the "scene and be scene". This place is definitely one of DC's new hotspots if your looking to spend money and be around a very high end crowd (Louboutins, Chanel, LV and Gucci were on every dining patron). I had the filet, prawn appetizer, shared 3 sides and enjoyed 1 cocktail ($100 including tip).

    Great lunch location for business, date, or large group for a special occasion. Very empty during lunch time. Prix-fix menus at $29 and $45 which allow you to combine delicious signature items for a deal. Sophisticated ambiance and excellent service. Extremely quiet at lunch which is the opposite of the restaurant for dinner.

    We are returning patrons for dinner. The food was just as amazing if not better than opening weekend. Service was stellar, we wanted for nothing. Good to see how busy it was for a weeknight. Highly recommend this place for lunch, we are frequent visitors and it never disappoints. A welcome addition to the neighborhood

    This was my second time at STK, and although the ambiance and environment is very fun and energetic, the service was poor both times. Both times the waiter messed up the bill, forgot something, or took a long time coming back to the table. This time we even had to ask the hostess for assistance, because we could not find our waiter. Great restaurant for a vibrant bar scene, and energetic ambiance since they have a DJ, but the customer service is terrible. The waiters are always nice, but they definitely need more training considering that this is supposed to be a high priced, top-notch restaurant steakhouse. On a positive note, the food is always great!

    My wife and I are frequent diners and we were not impressed with STK. The service was very poor and the food did not wow us. We waited an extremely long time for cocktails and the server did not appear informed when questions were posed about the menu. We have dined at just about every upscale steakhouse imaginable (in New York, DC, Chicago, etc.) and we would definitely put this one on the bottom of our list. Our check for 2 was $315.00 and we did not walk away satisfied.

    Best bone in filet I've had in a while! Very impressed. Service was lovely too and very attentive. Bar was a little slow with drinks but they comped us a round because of it without us asking so they were on top of it. Quite loud there but overall worth it. Apps great too!!

    10/22/2014 Thanks to the wonderful staff and management at STK DC, my business dinner meeting was a success. We enjoyed a couple bottles of wine that were both delicious and complimented our wonderful meal perfectly, which included excellent oysters, wedge, lobster mash and on-point medium rare bone-in ribeye. The staff was attentive and helpful, yet not intrusive. The overall dining experience met my expectations and we were very pleased.

    We went there to celebrate my wife's birthday and the restaurant remembered! A good things these days as others in the past have had to reminded several times. Our server(s) were very polite and knowledgeable. Food was very good and prepared just like we asked. It is a la carte so it may be pricey for some.

    The food and service was great! The setting is perfect for groups and dining for two. But I think the music is a tad bit too loud, which makes this really nice upscale restaurant seem more club-like. The drinks were ok, could be much better. My group of four had either the 14oz bone in filet or the 10oz filet with butter and shrimp which was filling, and we all shared creamed spinach, Mac & cheez, mashed potatoes, corn pudding, twice baked potato and wild mushrooms which were all AWESOME!!! Would highly recommend!

    Went or brunch and had an excellent experience. It was a younger, well-behaved crowd with live DJ. The $18 unlimited drinks kept flowing. The food was excellent. I got the short ribs with jalapeno grits and shared a pancake entrée. Others got he fried chicken and the hamburger w/fries. No dish disappointed. I will return.....

    LOVED STK...this was my first time and my other two friends said I would love it so we HAD to go, it’s great to know your friends know you so well. ;-) The energy was awesome, the overall look was fab and the food was great...I didn’t have much of an appetite so I need to come back to give a better review on the food. It’s so hard to find a place that makes White Cosmo's so that really made my day. Our waitress was very attentive but loved the special attention our server had...he noticed my Cosmo spilled a little on the table and he came right away to clean it up. The service is the #1 thing that makes me come back to any establishment. I have already told about 5 other people and looking forward to my next experience!

    Customer Service was mediocre. Bartender asian girl, had a slight attitude. Waitress, never asked how I wanted my mini burgers....they come out medium rare if you don't request otherwise. Me being nice, I still gave a 30% tip. STK, step it up, or this place will go down. It all starts with training your staff how with the basics, and that is customer service.

    STK is a very nice steakhouse that has a bar, lounge and formal dining areas and a private room as well. It is gorgeous inside with comfortable white leather seats. The food is very pricey however so it is not my first choice for happy hour as you can only get that menu at the bar which is small. The lounge is vibrant once the live DJ starts to play music and the crowd was mature. They just began serving brunch so I will try that soon.

    Dinner was absolutely delicious and the service was remarkable. We had octopus for the appetizer, both of us had filet with Oscar topping. We indulged in several sides and ended with the apple tart. Did I mention a reasonably priced bottle of Joel Gott Red Zin? Our server, Marcus was helpful, courteous and FUN! Finally the Manager, Monica, came by the table a couple of times during the evening to check on us. Advised on good places to go dance after dinner and even helped us secure late night parking. Planning on taking more of my colleagues there next week!! Top Notch!!

    Visited Washington, D.C. for a conference, which also happened to be the same weekend as my birthday. I looked up STK at the recommendation of a DC resident and liked what I saw online. I wanted a place with a fun, vibrant, and modern atmosphere with great drinks. And that's what we got! The food was good, though nothing too memorable. I did not care for the shrimp and rice krispies or whatever it was called. But overall, the meal was fine. The drinks were great and the DJ played great music that we jammed to while eating and chatting. The service was good. They brought out a dessert to help me celebrate and it was not good, but meh…it's the effort that counts. Overall, I would recommend it to a friend, though I probably won't go back.
