Given price point for your steaks, this is not the best in the city. Not bad but overpriced certainly.

Too expensive, food is greasy and too salty, wireless European credit card machines they use to charge at the table made the whole experience even more worse. And for a birthday cake they brought a mini (1”) chocolate tart. Crazy ....

This was a special occasion dinner. Our table wasn’t ready and we had to wait and order drinks at the over crowded bar, we carried our own drinks to the table. The seating was wrong, a table next to windows by the kitchen it was freeing air and loud. We requested to move. I was shocked for the amount of money this place charges how many things went wrong with the food. It was crowded but for Saturday dinner service I expect better. The tuna tartar was overly coated in sesame oil, we could not taste the spices that were added so we had to ask for a pallet cleanser. The steak my partner ordered came out rare it was requested to be cooked medium. It was purple and cold. Mine was cooked as requested but since their came out wrong it screwed up the entire dinner. As a result I ate my dinner cold while I waited for my partner’s food to be prepared as ordered. I asked for the manager, they offered to keep my dinner warm but this would then over cook the steak. They did refresh the side dishes we ordered since they took away their plate, however what is a $15 side dish when you order a $90 piece of steak. They gave us sorbet and slightly burned cookies for desert as a gesture. Another odd moment of the evening I went to the rest room and when I was coming back from the lobby to go to my table a waiter asked me where I was going in a tone that did not make me feel welcome. I was in a cardigan and dress that fully covered me. I mentioned this to our waiter who apologized. I am so disappointed we waited a year to come here and celebrate but for over $500 dinner and drinks wow is it overrated. The only saving grace was when the steak was cooked as ordered it came out delicious.

Let me start by saying the service was excellent!! Our server was very attentive and helpful and made sure we enjoyed our anniversary.
That being said, the food was just ok....my favorite part was the free amuse bouche that was sent for our anniversary. Scallop with caviar in a delicious cream sauce! So good! So was the bread and fries with dipping sauces!!!!! But for our main course of American raised wagyu beef we were a bit disappointed. It tasted just like any other steak I could have picked up at the grocery store. Ruth’s Chris has better steak for half the price. For a $600 dinner I expected a bit more.

Ended up here by accident and we were delighted with the meal and service. Had the bone-in ribeye which was prepared with Argentinian flavors and absolutely delicious. It came with avocado which was fantastic with it. The sommelier paired a fantastic wine, Lapostelle Clos Apalta. We don't eat egg or dairy which they had no problem with. As a result, the only dessert choice was sorbet. Had mango, coconut and passionfruit, they were good if not a bit tart. Overall, outstanding meal except for dessert which could use a little work. Service and sommelier were outstanding. Will definitely go back!

There was a lot of confusion from the start. One of our guests arrived early. The host sat her at the table. When the other guests arrived, we checked in and told them we would sit at the bar to wait for our other guest, not knowing she was already seated. I’m not seen that happen before, much less at a fine restaurant.
We moved on to dinner, and that’s when the real trouble started. One of our guests asked to order a hamburger to which the waiter replied that was only on the bar menu. It’s the Four Seasons for heaven sake. They can accommodate one guess who wants a hamburger (and it’s not exactly inexpensive). Of course they ended up complying, but the fact that I needed to point out that we were at the four seasons, which is supposed to have better service, should not have been necessary.
We also ordered two filet mignon‘s. Without confirming, the waiter charged us for their high end wago beef fillet mignon which is about a $20 increase from the normal diet mignon. He should have confirmed with us; we just went with it and did not say anything. One our the guests with the filet had asked for their steak to be well done, and the other asked for it to be medium to medium-rare. My friend with the well-done steak received a hot pink steak and the other steak was on the other hand overcooked. The hamburger that eventually came had the wrong cheese – my friend had specified cheddar and they brought it with American, so that also had to go back to the kitchen to be corrected. So we spent a lot of the evening with food going back-and-forth to the kitchen to get the order right, which as anyone has experienced, is distracting. Due to the errors with the steaks the manager said that one of the sex would be on him. They instead sent to free desserts for our troubles. Mind you, two desserts are quite a bit less than a $60 steak, but we just said thank you and then paid for the very expensive bill.

The quality and level of food and service is far above any other steak house. The ribeye was the best I have ever had. Our server Jeanine was fantastic, very knowledgeable about the steaks on the menu, pleasant, did not rush us made sure that not only the meal but the entire experience exceeded expectations. Ryan Ogier, manager, along with the table captain are truly meat lovers and purveyors of fine steaks and it shows with their enthusiasm to make sure that we were completely satisfied. If you are going out for a great steak in DC, this is the place to go.

It was my birthday tonight and while I acknowledge that the restaurant is booked (even though it’s a Tuesday night) I found the restaurant to be overbooked and too loud. Our server, bless his heart was trying, but could just not keep up. Maybe it was because we couldn’t make up our minds or that there was a push from the kitchen, but I felt rushed at times. He forgot the complimentary truffle bread and fries; although we did receive bread after asking for it during our mains. There was also some confusion as to whether we would be having wine even after we had ordered a bottle. I thought it was nice of the chef and manager to provide me with a card and birthday dessert surprise on the house, but I couldn’t help but be disappointed on my special evening. There was a large party of 10 that treated the dining room as their own private bar which made early conversation with my mother impossible. I had to ask her to repeat herself three times before I heard the answer. The cocktails by far were my favourite, impeccably delicious. The cut of meat recommended superb and the mushrooms and pole beans were top notch. I just wish the waitresses and waiters did not use the path behind my chair as a pass; I had more than a few bumps throughout the night. For a special occasion, I would come back, but I was a bit disappointed because none of the previous reviews told the truth. This is a networking restaurant where the common diner is replaced with whoever is in the know and sadly that’s not the experience I was looking forward to.

The food was amazing! However, our waiter was not attentitave. He did not ask if we wanted another drink until we asked for the check, wasn’t helpful answering menu questions, and acted appalled when we asked to take half of our steak home. He truly made us feel like we were beneath him for some reason. It’s a nice restaurant and we weren’t expecting a waiter who essentially sneered at us. It turned us off enough that I don’t think I would return.

The American wagyu filet was very tough and overcooked on the outside, but not cooked to my specified temperature on the inside. It was not nearly as good as the grass-fed filet on sale for $20 less. The food was very over priced and not on the same level quality-wise as some of the steakhouse favorites in the city. The waiter was constantly try to up-charge at every possibility.

Great food and good service, but I was not given a choice of tips other than 18% and 20%. I feel it's my prerogative to tip as I want, especially for a very expensive meal. When the dinner is that expensive, the absolute amount of the tip is the determining factor, not the percentage. As a result, I won't be back

Thinking of a nice restaurant for a dinner I’ve chosen this place as it is on Eater essentials list and thought it would have some nice drinks and food. No way! This awful place charges you for the 1) bread; 2) terrible salad; 3) oversalty dishes; 4) not-at-all tasty drinks. I’d say 1/10 to go there. This night was totally ruined. However, they asked me what didn’t I like and didn’t do anything about that. Service is 0/10. So, please, choose a better place to eat. I’m sure that this city has lots of them.
