Steakhouse
BOURBON STEAK by Michael Mina offers guests an innovative American steakhouse and timeless dining experience with a twist. Our Executive Chef Drew Adams prepares pristine cuts of American and Japanese beef. Using Michael Mina’s signature process, the meat is slow-poached then cooked over a seasoned wood-fired grill to a mouthwatering finish. The bar at BOURBON STEAK features an extensive list of 20th century cocktails made to order, along with an extensive wine and spirits list. Additionally, the restaurant has a cultivated collection of small batch bourbons and whiskies it pours table side on its beverage cart.

Signature dishes include Sanuki Wagyu, Kagoshima Wagyu, Virginia NY Strip, Michael’s Lobster Pot Pie and a trio of duck fat French fries for every table. In the bar do not miss specialty drinks such as The Potomac, a variation of the classic dirty martini prepared with a house-made white truffle brine.

Everything we had was fantastic. We had the ribeye, scallops, tuna, and several sides — all great. Service was personal and first class in every way. This was our 2nd time at the Bourbon and we will make it a stop whenever we are in D.C.

Valet parking was horrible and expensive. If I want a good steak I can get a better experience at Ruth’s Chris, Morton’s, S&M. Service is slow, very dark environment.

It was amazing. I went for my wedding anniversary with my husband and it was terrific. We got a perfect seat, a complimentary cake, and card. It is really pricey but it is worth it. Best food and service. Great bourbon selection. Amazing brussel sprouts. Cannot go wrong!

The service was excellent but food was good, not great. Overall it was underwhelming, especially considering the price tag. I’m happy to spend for an A dining experience, but this isn’t something I am going to do again.

Fantastic first class dining experience. Had reservations and was seated within 5 min of time. Service was on very good standards, drinks, appetizers, meal and dessert staged appropriately. Plate presentation was good. All food was fresh and hot and made correctly to order. I would recommend asking for seat away from entrance during cold time of year. Would come back and visit again.

This visit was disappointing. Unlike all previous experiences, the quality of the food was below par. The service and the wine were the usual top shelf, but we left feeling that the kitchen was a bit overwhelmed on that particular Friday night. We had an 8:45 reservation, which shouldn’t be an especially busy time, but it seemed things were somewhat rushed. Specifically, each course had issues. We both ordered the salad wedge, and I found mine on the small side and the lettuce wasn’t a wedge, just a center cut out of a small head. Unfortunately, the caviar parfait, which is one of the restaurant’s signature dishes, had absolutely no flavor. It was as if they had kept several orders in the fridge and just took it out upon order. There was no standout flavor, which shouldn’t happen with caviar, smoked salmon and creme fraiche. So sad. We shared a rib eye and the lobster mac and cheese. The steak was nicely done, but not the usual quality for Bourbon Steak. Finally, the true disappointment was the mac and cheese. The pasta shells were undercooked (not al dente, undercooked), and the sauce was runny and equally unfinished. Overall, not what we’ve come to expect from one of our favorite DC destination restaurants.

The food and service were excellent. I ordered the filet mignon. You could almost cut it with a knife. This is a great place to get a very good steak.

Atmosphere was great and our server was amazing but the steaks were mediocre at best even though we got the 7X steak. Very little flavor and paying >$75 a steak you’d expect more. The salt baked potato and as ok as well which again made for a less than optimal dinner for my wife and I as she’s going through some tough medical tests and we’d hope for a better meal. On the plus side Jeanine was awesome as our server and the French Fry trio was amazing!

We were celebrating our daughter’s new position. We are so proud of her accomplishments and were looking forward to catching up with her and being able to talk. Unfortunately, there was a large group that came in a bit after we sat down. Half of them were young children. They were loud and constantly running/walking around. This was not the experience we were hoping for, especially at the price we paid.

I am a retired preschool and kindergarten teacher, so I do understand that children need to move. Unfortunately this is not the type of restaurant where that behavior should be expected.

Service, ambiance, decor, comfort were all amazing. The main event was the 48oz Ribeye sliced and shared by three. It was ordered medium rare but was rare and slightly undercooked even by that standard. This could have been a simple mistake or oversight. The flavor and tenderness of the cut however, was amazing so our whole party agreed it wasn’t worth a complaint or reorder. Overall it was still a great dining experience and I would gladly dine there again as I feel another chance at getting it just right would prove to be one of the best steaks I could ever try.

The food and service at Bourbon Steak were both very good. We especially liked the appetizers (charred octopus), salads (wedge and butter lettuce) and the sides (outstanding creamed spinach and cauliflower!). We were able to find several possibilities on the wine list that were reasonably priced despite the overall high cost of the meal. The atmosphere was pleasant, but the noise level made it difficult to hear one another and the waiter, even though our table was by itself near the front of the restaurant.
