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.

    Honestly the food was decent, the waitress was very attentive, and the ambience was nice however... For the price, there was a lot to be desired. We were also celebrating a special occasion and I'd hoped STK would've done something special - they didn't. For the price, I'd save your money and maybe consider happy hour.

    Great food - they treated us very well even though we were using a coupon deal. I thought it would be more stuffy based on what I heard but we enjoyed all our food - drinks are soooo good too. However most people there were using the same deal as us and it wasn't very crowded - not sure if the prices will allow them to stay in town very long....

    The food was delicious and the portions were large. We ordered truffle fries and their "mashed" potatoes - such amazing sides. Our table ordered the BBQ short rib (super moist and sweet), the 10oz filet (grilled just how I like it - medium well - and has an amazing house sauce that came with it) , and the lamb chops (which were superb and so tender and delicious). I have no complaints about the food. They really know how to grill. I plan to go back and try different dishes and I regret not trying their dessert :/ Next time hopefully!

    I went for Restaurant week. Thank goodness because if I had paid the full price, I would've been angry. The hostess was nice. In addition to the special, we also got beef tartare & oysters. Both were good as was the tuna tartare. Steaks, nothing special &not medium rare as requested. The STK sauce described by our server as "sweet and sassy",thankfully was included because at $2 per sauce, not worth it! $26 for a glass of Cabernet? Service - not up to par for these prices. Never asked how the food was, except dessert. Strange music. One minute heavy metal the next disco? Unpolished flatware that kept being placed incorrectly. Spotlight on our table that was annoying. I was told I should wear a dress & heels? For $200 for 2ppl-I expect more.

    We went here for a late night meal (11pm)and found out they were having restaurant week. Great right! Not really we ordered off the special menu but never got our starter or dessert, only our entree. Our server was missing most of the night and took over 20 minutes to bring our drinks. The place is Nice and the food was good but service was the worst.

    As a resident of NYC and a frequent diner at the STK's there, I was disappointed by the STK in DC. While the food was decent/good, it did not in any way make up for the poor service we received. Upon arrival, we waited 20 minutes before we were even greeted. But I will say, that when we told the host stand that we have been waiting for a while, a friendly woman I presume was a manager, offered us a round of drinks on the house. That was a great gesture. However, at the end of the evening after small gaps of wait times, we finally asked for the check and that took another 20-25minutes to arrive and another 20 minutes before I could pay. I think once STK DC gets a better hold on timing and service all around, it will be a DC staple!

    A couple of friends and I tried STK for restaurant week. The service was just OK and the food was also not very memorable. Do not order the Parmesan Truffle Fries unless you're in the mood for Yucca bars served in a way that makes them look like a Jenga tower. The filet we had was decent, but the sauce that came with it looked like A-1 but was actually more like sweetened ketchup. The roasted chicken was amazing. The mac and cheese was not salty enough. The desserts were good - especially the almond fudge brownie (odd name for it, though) - but I would skip the banana cream pie jar unless you're in the mood for something that tastes like Jell-O pudding.

    This was my first time dining at STK. Our server, J.M., was fantastic. He made suggestions and gave his honest opinion about the food. He was attentive, and very welcoming. I had the STK sandwich. It was great. They made note of my specifications, and didn't have a problem customizing it to my liking. The chopped vegetable salad was great. Light, fresh, and refreshing...and the banana cream pie in a jar was absolutely delicious, almost as good as mine. I will definitely be returning to STK.

    where do i begin...went for gilt city promo...not much of a deal at all...the 24 oz porterhouse looked much smaller than 24 oz. mac and cheese was good, everything else was just plain bad: broccolini, tuna tartar underseasoned, scallops almost inedibly salty, bread cold and hard as a rock, parsley oil served with bread was inedible, steak was seasoned well but overcooked, 3 ice cream cones to share between 2 people? what a stupid dessert. Server was clueless on gilt, way too loud, terribly lit, just like STK elsewhere, won't go back, ever.

    We went for restaurant week, I had heard mixed reviews but we went anyways. I have to say I loved it the tuna tartare was delicious !!! I had the fillet and it was soo tender :) by the time desert came I was too full to enjoy it. The only thing is that it's too pricey to go often but every once in a while it's ok. It was mainly a young crowd, it's a girly girl place in my opinion.

    I went for the August Restaurant Week in DC. Typically, restaurants put their best foot forward or they just give you whatever they can and try to make it through the week. STK DC is the former. Great steak, great appetizer, delicious dessert, top notch service, stylish place! We were greeted right away; after not liking our initial table, we were escorted to a prime location; the waitress - Hazel - was knowledgeable, and offered good recommendations. The manager, McGarrett, was personable, interesting and offered good information for our wine pairing. The loin strip was cooked perfectly, tuna tartare (with avocado and taro chips) was superb; and I couldn't believe the fudge brownie was made in-house. Definitely heavy on female clientele.

    Second time to STK and first for dinner during Restaurant Week. My first visit was closer to the grand opening and they were working through some issues. However, my visit during restaurant week helped me improve my opinion. The food and cocktails were excellent Service was pretty good, they have a young staff and they can be silly. I would return.

    This place was pretty lively during restaurant week August 2014. I really liked the ambiance of chic and sophistication with the right mix of feeling comfortable. The restaurant week menu was sufficient although our waiter forgot to inform us the meal was aka carte. He quickly remedied the situation and my party of 5 couldn't have been more happier.

    Went here for restaurant week. Had the chopped salad and the steak sandwich. Both were very good. But i get the sense that the sandwich is overpriced. The vibe is weird: a cross between a diner (lots of booths) and nightclub, though, for lunch, it feels more like an upscale diner.

    Amazing, how inexperienced servers can mix up everything. My entrée was given to the guy dining close to me and he ate it. I was left waiting, waiting, waiting... Finally, I had to get up and speak with the manager. The waiter didn't want to acknowledge the mistake and ignored me from then on. Where do they hire these servers from? The manager did speak to me and gave me lunch gratis. I wasn't looking for a free lunch, just some adequate service while dining. To say things need to improve in this restaurant is a vast understatement. Yikes.

    I went here for dinner last night and there were no complainants. There were a lot of mixed reviews for the location online. I have been to STK in NYC before so I had a general idea what to expect. The tuna tartar was my favorite!! The music was not of any issue, it was actually pretty low. Our server Marcus was wonderful. He was knowledgeable of the menu and he was attentive but not too much great balance. A manager came over to the table to ensure we liked our meal. The hostess took the time to show us the private dining space. That was very helpful as a hotelier. I will be sure to refer group business opportunities.

    I wanted to try the STK in DC after having gone to the location in Las Vegas and loved it, but I didn't feel this one stood up to the Las Vegas location. It was really nice, the food was good, but I was looking for the same level of energy and fun once it turned into more of a lounge feel. It was kind of quiet but still nice. There was a dj but nothing exciting was really going on. The service was just ok for me, the server was not as attentive as what I am accustomed to. If you haven't been to the Las Vegas location then you won't know what you are missing so you will enjoy this one. Like I said it was still really nice and the food was good so I would recommend it to others.

    A decent deal for Restaurant Week. Very tender, delicious steak and twice-baked potatoes, good fish, good wine. But the meat comes with nothing else, so sides and sauces are extra. Boo for this. As with so many places, the noise level is a put-off.

    First time in STK DC and its my new favorite place. Great place, great food and awesome service. Our food was great, scallops nothing to brag about will skip those next time but the grilled octopus, our steaks, drunken donuts was all amazing. The bar was great as well, with some great music. This is definitely not a quiet place but it is young, trendy, fun, energetic with amazing food and great drinks, especially the Argentinian wine.
