As always the service was exquisite. The ambiance was perfect because we had absolutely gorgeous weather for Sunday Brunch on the patio. And everything we ordered tasted absolutely sublime.The highlight of the meal was the 1/2 dozen fresh oysters on the half shell. Three from Maine and three from the Chesapeake Bay followed by the New York Strip Steak. Oh, we must not forget the fries cooked in duck fat. Yumm!

Everything was incredible. The service was seamless and the food was delicious. The wine list is extensive and there is a great variety of options. I enjoyed the filet and it was cooked exactly as requested.

Did burgers in the bar for date night. The burgers are amazing. Drinks (one mezcal seasonal and one standby bourbon) were also great. Definitely recommended.

Bourbon Steak never fails...except that they took the pork chop off the menu.
The service is impeccable; cocktails are some of the best creations in town, and the meat never disappoints. If you haven't been, treat yourself - but know this level of dining comes with an appropriate price tag.

Food was excellent! They were able to recover quickly after our steak originally came out over cooked. They catered to everything we needed or wanted. A party came in a about a 1/2 hr before we were done and they were loud. So loud we knew all the details of one of the patrons upcoming wedding! Nonetheless, the food and the atmosphere was superb and we will be back on the next special occasion :)

Came here to celebrate my birthday and the ambiance and service was amazing. However, I ordered my steak medium and it was very blue, almost rare…I ended up having to send it back and got it back well done which obviously comprised the quality of the steak :( the lobster Mac and cheese needed salt & pepper badly. The atmosphere was great but the food was subpar for me.

The best part is what comes before the meal. The chef sends a selection of French fries and dipping sauces, and the truffled dinner rolls are the most delicious thing.

My experience wasn’t that great, but I will start with the positives…the staff was great. The drinks were great. But the food- from the Lobster pot pie wasn’t as tasty as expected. It lacked seasoning, and the puff pastry

Our experience was very average. It’s a good restraint, but not great. It was nothing special, and for the price we paid for dinner ($450) for 2 people this was definitely not worth it. Service was ok, not amazing, good cocktails though, and good steak, everything else was average. Extremely noisy and busy. There are resultants in D.C. with similar pricing point but outstanding food and service which is worth paying for (Fiola Mare for example), Bourbon Steak was not worth the money, and I was not impressed and would not come back to celebrate a special occasion there

Special dinner with my son who just got accepted to Georgetown. He ordered an $80 steak that we sent back twice because they couldn’t get medium rare right. I’m a vegan and found out the day after that the fries may have been cooked in duck fat. Called management who said that the fries were cooked separately in peanut oil, but I’m not so sure about that. Then when I mentioned the sauces that came with the fries, management confirmed that one was definitely not vegan and contained eggs. Definitely not ok for a restaurant of this quality and I left a good tip on top of a high $ check before I found out about the vegan issue. No manager came to speak with us about having to send the steak back twice and me waiting until my son got his food back to have my meal. Felt bad for the waiter, but not happy about the vegan issue after the fact especially. Disappointing experience given the reputation of the restaurant and management.

It was a bit chilly in the restaurant when we got there and they came around with pashminas for the women! All of the drinks and food were incredible as well. Although my mom said her steak was a bit cold when it came to her. We were a large party of 8 but I would have preferred if entrees came out as they were ready so no one had to eat a cold steak. We were celebrating Father’s Day and my father was absolutely pleased by everything so that was what was most important!

I saved my review for today, with the expectations of hearing from the GM, as I was told. Obviously, my family’s concerns pertaining to our poor dining experience wasn’t enough to receive a call, so here’s my review.
I decided to bring my family back here this for Father’s Day, as the last time we dined, the food, atmosphere, & service were excellent. POOR CHOICE, as we may have been better off at Burger King.
For starters, our food took almost two (2) hours to come out. Taking into consideration that it was Father’s Day, we sat patiently. The salmon entree my daughter ordered tasted as if it came directly out of the ocean, as it was extremely bland; no flavor at all. I ordered a filet mignon and PLEADED with our waiter to make sure it was medium rare (warm red center), because I would send it back. We had a brief chuckle, & he reassured me that it would be prepared to my liking. I also ordered the lobster pot pie because it was so yummy the last time I ordered it.
When my meal came out, the steak was over cooked (medium well), as I could could find very little traces of pink, yet alone red! My lobster pot pie was mushy and warm; not hot. I instantly lost my appetite. Our waiter empathized & apologized several times, offering to prepare the food again. I declined, as I wanted to eat with my family & we had already waited close to 2 hours for our meals to come out.
Adding insult to injury, the Manager came to the table AS IF HE HAD ANY OTHER CHOICE!! I was extremely insulted, as was the waiter! My waiter did what he could to salvage our dining experience & I truly thank him! He brought desserts to our table (free of charge). We nibbled on them but scurried out because by this time, my stomach & my pregnant daughter’s stomach was literally touching our backs from not eating.
Prior to us leaving, the waiter reassured me that I would hear from the GM no later than Wednesday; today….I am STILL waiting for his call!
