The food was amazing as was the service. The music was a touch loud. Then again it wasn’t my taste, so perhaps if it were I wouldn’t have cared.
This dinner was the second experience for us at Bourbon and it won’t be the last.

I had an amazing time! The food and service was excellent. The pricing wasn’t even bad for how great the experience was. I highly recommend this place especially if you have never been to an authentic steakhouse before!

With a wide open dining room, we were seated at the worst table in the house right next to the kitchen and the server traffic. I asked to be moved and caught a little attitude. Then my fish filet smelled and tasted "fishy" and worst of all had numerous bones in it; and then, my girlfriends steak was so tough that we sent both entrees back. I'd expect food like that for $9.99 an entrée, not $45+ per entrée. They gave a us a free dessert to make up for it...wow. We likely will only go back for a burger at the bar.

I like the restaurant but think it is overpriced for a hotel restaurant. I go to other places this expensive, and the bar is nice, but the restaurant itself is rather plain and not what you expect for a "fancy" dining option that costs so much.

Superb food, by far the best Steak in D.C. (wagyu is a must) We travel to D.C. often, & enjoy dinning here every time we are in town. You will want to have a reservation, they have a tendency to be very busy on the weekends and evenings. Excellent wine list with several serving size options. Wait staff is great, however, on occasion, when they are busy, service has been a little slow with regards to drink service and requesting you tab. It's a must stop dining experience while you are in D.C. you will not be disappointed.

Everything from making the reservation to our last bite was phenomenal. It was a wonderful birthday experience for my husband and they really make the time you spend at the restaurant exceptional. The menu is expensive but each item is worth it and you will leave satisfied and thinking about your next visit. I will have to save up to go again, definitely pricey! But I would do it all over again.

Overall great experience. Very attentive staff, little coordination problems sometimes, but very friendly and enthusiastic.
Amazing steaks and food overall, including the spectacular desserts.
Great wine selection.
Very busy space, maybe not for a quiet dinner, but although upbeat, still nice with kids as well.

Table wasn’t ready for 20 minutes after the reserved time. Service team acknowledged it but did little to compensate. Food was very average and generally disappointing for what we’ve been used to at Bourbon Steak. Restaurant was overrun with guests. Not a 4S experience. Not sure we’ll be back any time soon. Hostess was horrible.

This was our second visit and it just as great the second time as it was the first. To start we had great appetizers that were off the charts. The roasted beet soup was unbelievable. The short ribs got great accolades. The steaks were perfectly prepared. The bone-in 35 day dry aged NY strip was one of the best steaks I have ever had. Another member of our group said to not miss the seafood as the scallops were very, very good. Save room for dessert as the Baked Alaskan was very, very good. Make sure that you take advantage of the signature drinks from a talented bartender. The service was very attentive....our water glasses were always topped off. I would highly recommend Bourbon Steak for any occasion.

I wish I remembered our servers name, but he was incredibly tall if that helps? The head som was also incredible. Will definitely come back!!

Amazing service, nice ambiance, but the food was so-so. The tuna tartare was under-seasoned. The steak was good, but really nothing special. In fact, we liked the brussels sprouts (which were very tasty) more than the steak. Perhaps one of those restaurants where you pay for the service and ambiance more than the food.

I have been to this restaurant in the past and was so impressed that I returned with guests to celebrate New Year’s Day. There are great steak choices and I am impressed with the variety of sauces and accompaniments. I must complement them on the assortment of fries that are served as an appetizer, the truffle mac n cheese, as well as the delicious bread. The wine menu is impressive and the Sommelier made great suggestions.

We went for NYE and we were quite disappointed. The service was great, but the food was so-so, and I can’t stomach so-so food for a $500+ price tag. The ingredients were repetitive, the steak was cold and clearly had been taken out of the fridge just before cooking instead of being brought to room temperature, and also several of the dishes o the prix fixe menu were bland and underwhelming. We had to reseason the food after it was served, which I just don’t expect to have to do at a quality restaurant at this price point. I had really been looking forward to dining here, but I was severely disappointed.

We went to Bourbon steak for New Year's Eve. Although they said it was a tasting meal I don't think it really registered with the rest of my party. The small portions of the food for the price of 195.00 each made the other members of my group angry and frustrated. I am all for companies making profits but I think that Bourbon steak could have provided a regular dinner and still turned a profit without having people be so unsatisfied. I doubt that I will ever return due to this incident.

This was the worst dinner experience ever...but the sad part of it was it was New Year’s Eve and my husband and I were so excited about going to the Four Season’s It was a 7 course meal and each course was the size of 1 bite. The gnocchi dish had 3 gnocchi on a huge plate. The first course was a Umi ice cream. Gosh, disgusting. I mean I enjoy innovative ideas. But I think good taste should be part of the experience. The foie gras the second course consisted of something floating in dirty water and a mushroom. The pieces de resistance - bass- was a tiny piece of fishy tasting fish. The steak, the second to
Last course, was ok. We got french fries as compensation for the bad tasting courses. Dessert was Japanese cheesecake - a piece of blue cheese and tiny muffin with some kind of syrup. Shame on you for offering this meal. We paid 195.00 per person. Yes, we were discounted 25% because we were not happy with the meal. But it was worth 0. Will we go back? NEVER

The service was polite but inadequate and very slow. It took 20 minutes to get a cocktail after we sat down. When one person in our party ordered the bartenders choice, no one explained what it was.

The seafood tower was fine, but we’ve had much better at many other local restaurants. The black bass entree was inedible. The fish was not fresh at all, or it was a bad piece. Afterwards, no one came by - I would have expected the manager to stop over.

Our steak was not cooked properly at all. At least it was significantly undercooked vs. over cooked (that would be worse).

It was a disappointment to say the least. I would recommend any number of other local steak houses over this.

Didn’t get seated for ONE HOUR after our reservation. We were there at 7.45 promptly for our reservation. The food was lousy- we sent back two baked potatoes that were verging on raw. The filet was so tough, we sent it back- the manager did tell us it was a problem with the cut. The manager did not come to us at the end of the meal to apologize for our ruined evening.
