The waitstaff was wonderful but the reception ladies were very rude.
The food portions were good and it came out fairly quickly. However for the price, the food was not amazing.

Bourbon did a great job of keeping us warm and well-taken care of. It was a special night, beautiful ambiance and delicious food. Fantastic service!

My friends and I were eager to try Bourbon steak. Personally, I think the place is over-hyped. I regularly enjoy $60-$70 dry-aged ribeyes at Del Friscos which I believe are far superior to the $96 dry-aged New York Strip steak I had at Bourbon Steak. Price is inflated due to it being in a hotel lobby bar, and the atmosphere feels exactly like a hotel lobby bar. Also, lighting is so dark that you cannot see the steak well enough to cut off the fat and gristle so you end up eating and chewing more than you normally would want to eat, which also takes away from the experience - expecting a mouthful of tender high quality meatStaff was very friendly and knowledgable, but the food isn’t worth the price.

Service and food were outstanding. Be prepared to pay hefty prices for what is offered, but this is to be expected given the location and ambience of this restaurant. Definitely a great experience for us!

We waited almost 40 minutes just to be asked what drinks we’d like. Food and beverages took very long to come out. Any additional condiments that we’d request would never come until waiter was reminded.

Made reservations and told them it was my birthday. When we got there they had a birthday card on the table where all the staff signed. We got complimentary bread and fries. Overall the experience was great.

Very disappointed in the ambiance and food here. For a $300 meal I expected a much better experience. The dining area is very outdated and I didn’t have a good feel from the time we seated. Let’s start with the appetizer- the Octopus was dry and flavorless.
My husbands steak was very undercooked and extremely fatty, he’s has Wagyu plenty of times but this was much fattier than normal. Very upsetting for a $100 steak. I had the Halibut which again had no flavor at all! Our waiter was nice and by no means were he responsible for our terrible experience. Will not return! Sorry to hear that Seasons is closed, enjoyed their brunch much better. Crossing Bourbon Steak off my list

While dining during a very popular weekend you expect a longer wait time in general. In this instance it just seem much longer 2 hours to be exact to wait and still not have any food. It just didn’t sit well with me. While normally sitting outside in the cold would be an issue but the staff was very accommodating. Overall great vibe but slow chefs.

I went for my 23rd birthday. The service was great and the food was good. The vibe in the restaurant was beautiful. I went with three other friends and I am assuming they do not attract a younger crowd. They treated us normally with respect per usual. We decided to order champagne this time, Dom Perignon. We drank it, then I had to go to the bathroom and asked my brother to escort me. I came back to a table surrounded by servers, security, and hostess. That completely drained our comfort level could not even stay as long as we wanted.

Service was exceptional (as always). What stood out to me the most were the safety precautions taken amid COVID including temperature checks, social distancing, masks etc. While restaurants are required to take precautions I believe Bourbon Steak went above and beyond to ensure customers remained safe.

An excellent experience from beginning to end. The hosts were warm and welcoming. Ernesto and the entire bar team was amazing!! Gordon was the epitome of hospitality. Made my friend’s birthday extra special. Also, Angie(hope I’m that correctly) crafted an off menu cocktail with a house made raspberry cordial that changed our lives.

Great venue inside the Four Seasons in Georgetown. The ambiance and staff were excellent. We loved the complementary french fries and warm truffle butter buns which served as great appetizers. Our main entrees were not what we expected. My partner’s salmon was brunt/overly charred on the top and my steak and brussel sprouts were burnt/overly charred as well. The mac n cheese was delicious.

Maybe we caught the chef on a less than stellar evening. We expected way better for such an upscale affair.

Glad to dining indoors again! Well spaced and low capacity in place. Clean safe well maintained. The food was delicious. Portions just right! Service absolutely the best. Waygu not incredible probably regular beef would be just as good and abit more economical. Luxury has its cost and this is still worth it.

The service and every part of the meal was delicious and fantastic. Sitting outside in the middle of January was better than expected. The table was well distanced, had a heater nearby, and the server even provided blankets. We felt extremely safe.

REALLY impressed with how they are handling seating during COVID; "outside" but still warm and incredibly safe. There were some menu limitations (no asparagus, e.g.), but understandable-- the kitchen was willing to work with the customers on their requests. Service was excelente, the food was exquisite. One felt a sense of normalcy in these crazy times.

Our visit to Bourbon Steak this weekend was wonderful. The service and food were superb as always. We had a small party of four and felt comfortable sitting in their outdoor space for a late-night dinner. The restaurant did the best they could amidst absurd regulations on the restaurant industry in DC that have strangled the dining experience. Very few places can afford to operate amidst the new regulations and those that do have to seat guests outside in the dead of winter. Bourbon Steak is lucky to have the hotel space accommodate alternative seating plans. Still, it was so sad to see how few patrons they could seat while the DC mayor and her cronies enjoy uninterrupted payroll.
