The desert as recommended by our server, was the best I have ever had. The presentation and the desert itself was amazing. The steak was very good. Everyone enjoyed their dinner but was delighted with the desert. Our waiter was awesome, very helpful. Thank You all.

Completely overrated and overpriced. Does not hold up against the best restaurants and steakhouses and will never go again, despite superb service and an enjoyable ambiance. To have a $600+ meal (not including wine!) be so overwhelmingly average was hugely disappointing.

It was my last night living in DC, so I took my best friend who was helping me move back to MA out to my favorite restaurant in the city. It didn’t disappoint!

Great setting and the food could have been amazing. Huge delay after ordering and our food was cold. They explained they had to remake our lobster pot pie and as a result everything was cold. They then offered to remake all of the food but everyone was starving!! It was our daughters 25th birthday celebration for 8 of us. Disappointed.

Food was very good but not exceptional. Service was good, but not great. Prices were high for what you get. I'd go back if someone else was buying.

I booked Bourbon Steak for drinks and apps for my best friends birthday. I planned this elaborate surprise for him as we had to other friends visiting from out of town. Not only did the restaurant accommodate the late arrivals with additional table space, the manager and staff both helped be execute the surprise in the best way possible. They certainly did not have to do this and they still went above and beyond to accommodate my specific requests about placements and timing. Definitely a bit more quiet in the restaurant, but we sat in the bar lounge that was more lively and fun!

Decent steaks, but nothing special. Recommend drinks were mediocre. Nice enough, just not as nice as I expected

Our server kevin was awesome!

We asked for outdoor seating and we were seated directly beside a high functioning outdoor heat lamp. Our toddlers were warm and they loved their kids’ filet and salmon and Mac. The best part was the very cute reusable plastic cutlery that they brought for the kids and the s’mores desert.
For us big people, the cocktails wagyu steak and bone marrow appetizer was killer per usual.

For folks who don’t dine inside since covid, this restaurant felt extremely safe.

Just had to mention to the staff that it was a special meal and they made it even more special than I could have ever imagined.

Oh yeah, the incredible service is just a compliment to the delicious food. Every bite was a pleasure.

All great except for the steak. Unfortunately, when you are a steak house this should be your forte. I had a Ribeye, and it was the worst I ever had, thin, tough, and strange taste. It tasted more like a sirloin than a Ribeye. I wish there was better quality control here.
Everything else was great but left disappointed that I paid a premium for a mediocre main dish.

We went to Bourbon Steak for my husbands 50th Birthday. It is one of his favorite restaurants and typically we have really good dinners there. This dinner fell short, particularly the food.

We ordered a steak medium rare and a few sides, Steak came out rare, really rare. They put it back on the grill and brought us a medium rare steak a little under 10 minutes later. Side were cold by the time our steak came. Appetizers and salads were fine.


Service was good.

The steak was delish, and perfectly cooked and tasted amazing. The halibut and octopus were over cooked... BUT the bone marrow! Wow! Didn’t love the smoked s’mores.. It was just too smoke tasting.
