About Bourbon Steak - Four Seasons Washington DC

Featuring contemporary American fare with a focus on seasonal ingredients, BOURBON STEAK offers all-natural, organic and hormone free cuts of beef and the freshest seafood available worldwide.

Keeping with the nation’s capital’s emphasis on power daytime dining, BOURBON STEAK is one of the first Michael Mina restaurants to serve lunch. Guests can anticipate new salad entrées accompanied by homemade, fresh from the oven bread, each specifically created to complement the salad it is paired with.

Nice restaurant, good cocktails. Wood-fire grilled Arctic char with sauteed spinach is a great lunch. Only disappointment was that the complimentary French fries we had enjoyed with our dinner cocktail the previous evening are not offered at lunch. French fries were available as a side order but it's not the same as having them appear with your cocktail. Good restaurant though.

Made reservations for my wife and I wedding anniversary. The atmosphere is comfortable. It's upscale but not pretentious. The bar area is lively with contemporary music playing, but it did not effect the romantic ambiance of our dinner. The servers knew the menu and made excellent recommendations(wine server especially).

The food was AWESOME!!! Steak tartar, oysters, wagyu rib cap and tomahawk ribeye! No food is worth $$$ they're asking but I was not disappointed by my meal. For dessert get the smores, it's to die for. I will visit again after I save up or win the lottery.

We celebrated my husband’s 40th at Bourbon Steak. Every employee we met was so kind. It was refreshing, as we’ve dined in several DC restaurants that have felt stuffy, but not Bourbon Steak.

Our server was AMAZING.

Love the complimentary French fry “trio,” with three dipping sauces, as well as the tasty warm dinner roll served prior to dinner.

For dinner, we ordered a variety of meat dishes. I ordered the filet. It was tender and cooked perfectly. My husband ordered the Wagyu beef and said it was delicious. We shared the truffle macaroni and cheese — it was perfection — and the mashed potatoes were also on point.

It was an excellent dinner and dining experience all the way around. We were in a rush, as we had reservations for a show, but our server insisted he bring my husband a complimentary dessert. He went above and beyond to ensure my husband had a great birthday dinner.

I’m so happy with our decision to celebrate my husband’s milestone birthday at Bourbon Steak.

We had a great meal. It certainly seemed over priced. My guest ordered a steak to be cooked well. It came back raw. The manager took back the steak but it still came back raw. Having her sit without her plate while the rest of ate was awkward and returning it still not perfect makes the price of the food sting. Other components like the fries and the desserts were very nice. The deconstructed s’mores and key lime pie were superb.

This is definitely a great restaurant. The only complaint I have was that two of the steaks our table tried to order were unavailable. And after choosing a second steak our waiter came back after trying to put the order in to tell us they were also out of that option.

I have dined here five times over th past couple of years. You definitely don't come here to save money. The food is better than most steak houses and the ambience in the Georgetown Four Seasons Hotel is great. This was a very odd night - our initial server just disappeared to take care of a larger party. I had to physically go and get someone to provide service. The captain, Rita, stepped in and did a great job getting things back on track.And then - our steaks took almost an hour to come out from the kitchen. I asked several servers what might be happening to out $60-80 steaks after 45 minutes. It took 15 minutes longer and 2 more requests before the steaks finally appeared. The food was great- but not worth the wait by an stretch of the imagination. They comped 2 glasses
Of wine and I suggested they would need to do better. They comped 50 percent t of the bill. I won't be rushing back - though I would go back and suggest they are held to the high standard of service their food quality and prices demand.

I was ever-so slightly disappointed this go around. It was seemingly a very busy (lunchtime), therefore lots of distractions. My must-have's are the fries and the bread, although the bread is complimentary (I've often asked for more because it is wonderful)...they were both luke warm, at best.

This was the second time we've come here to celebrate a special occasion (this time a birthday) and both times the service and food was really excellent. They treat you so well and the meal, while expensive, does include some complimentary perks like duck fat fries, gorgeous toasted bread with a drizzle of truffle oil, and a little dessert to celebrate birthdays. They have a very extensive wine list too. Lovely spot for date night or a special occasion if you want to treat yourself!

The food in general was good, but not worth the price. Many of the dishes lacked a complexity of flavor that I’ve experienced in similarly situated restaurants. I think everything was about twice of what it should cost.

Went first time Oct 2016 and it was great. Food was great. Steak was of high quality and service was excellent. So we came back again in October 2017 and was very disappointed. Every aspects of standards were lowered. Food quality deteriorated. Wagyu steak is of poor quality (better just buy USDA prime at costco). Foie Gras was poorly cooked. Duck fat french fries served cold and soggy. Service level was not up to the same standard, slow, and unattentive. We had to wait a long time to order wine, had to pour our own wine (except the first pour by the sommerlier), and entree came very slow. For a premium steak house, we will not return to this place again. Better try some other places that keep their standard high.

My son and I went for a special dinner while he was visiting. The Wagyu hanger steak and the shrimp cocktail was great. However, the rest of the meal and the service was not on par with the level of restaurant. This is my 6th time to Bourbon Steak and it has been steadily declining. First, the service was sporadic. Once the waiter didn't see us ordering alcoholic beverages and the dining room began to fill up, we barely saw him. When our steaks were served, we could not understand the person serving the steaks and we were served the wrong level of doneness for the steaks. The waiter did not come over to check on us for at least 10 minutes after service. My nonalcoholic beverage was not offered a refill. The truffle butter rolls were dry, although better than the last time I was there in August. The Brussels sprouts recipe was changed and it was ok but they didn't seem to be cooked correctly. We passed on dessert since the service was so slow and no one seemed to care whether we stayed or left. Very disappointing.

I've been here four times... each time I ask for a special table and they deliver every time. The (good) food is a little pricey but I don't care as I only get to go once a year - it delivers on flavor and is unique. The fact that it's in the Four Seasons in Georgetown is exciting as you feel like you are really somewhere posh. I micromanaged the timing of my apps/mains/deserts as I was on my own and wanted to enjoy the experience; the waiter totally accommodated. I've had the best steak I've ever had (so far) here ever (7X ranch American Wagyu boneless ribeye).
