We went for our anniversary and it was outstanding!!
Awesome and best steak I have ever had.
I am fairly sure they forgot to put in our food order. It took over 45 minutes from the food order to being served.
Food was excellent as always.
Service was uncharacteristically poor. We had to ask for bread as none was served to us. Waiter told us that "lobster shipment today is poor quality...". Food was dropped on the table with no order or meaning. Lobster pot pie was prepared behind us instead of alongside the table as is normal. Drink cocktails served with no straws. Had to ask "may we please have straws almost ten minutes after receiving the drinks. Servers misidentified food as they were served. ie: "This is NY strip, enjoy" when it was actually rib eye.
The manager took over for the waiter and tended to us as we should have been from the beginning. He tried his best to compensate for the failures. For that I am appreciative, however he only comped us dessert that we did not order and two cocktails. I thought that was surprising considering the volume of food ordered at our table ( four people) and the subpar level of service received. We did not argue, we just paid.
We’ve been to Bourbon Steak many times and NEVER walk away disappointed. This was no exception. We had delicious cocktails, exceptional appetizers and the very best steak. We can’t wait to go back!
The place was great from the very beginning. Elegant attire and a cozy atmosphere just what we were looking for
We were served ice-cold steaks. We sent them back and received the same steaks on heated plates. The steaks were still cold and a man in a suit told us that medium rare steaks are always cold because they aren’t cooked fully through. As a steak eater I was so offended by his condescending reply. Our actual server was very nice and clearly passionate about her job. But for a good steak, go to Maestro’s.
Staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming. Had a whiskey flight and the gentleman who brought it over was very knowledgeable. He even recommended a local store where I could purchase the whiskey I tried. Turned out to be a great present for the hubby.
This is one of the District's better steakhouses in my opinion. The service has always been good, though I note from others it is considerably impaired when challenged by a busy crowd. I strongly recommend Mina's signature tuna tartar for an appetizer. The steaks are outstanding and come from a variety of Angus, Wagyu and hybrid based herds. The side dishes vary from adequate to good; the truffled mac & cheese is flavorful. The dessert menu needs work but that is rarely a focus in my opinion when eating this kind of rich meal.
This was my third time to Bourbon Steak and I was celebrating my 1st anniversary. It was our choice because I’ve been telling my girlfriend about how amazing my past experiences were literally since our first date. My first two experiences were individually the two best restaurant experiences I’d ever had. Perfect food, amazing cocktails, delicious food, and attentive and accommodating service. While this last time was a good experience it felt a bit lackluster in comparison. The staff seemed like they had somewhere else to be (I’ll grant that we dined at 8pm on a Saturday, but still). Cocktails were still fantastic, food was great, and it was overall still an extremely enjoyable experience. We may have just caught them on an off night.
Very unimpressive for the price. If the price was half of what it was it would get 3 stars.
This place is a "wow". delicious food, steak tender and flavorful. Creamed corn was unique, having you go back for more lovely dinner rolls with a buttery crust. Great bourbon cocktails, using your choice of bourbon. The octopus was tasty (first time for me to try). Lobster was incorporated in many dishes including mac and cheese, and soup! The dessert was fantastic, with smoked s'mores ( a great surprise!) this is a fun place for fine dining.
Steak was cooked perfectly. But the sides were very small. I have been to many steak houses in the DC area, and this one was just ok. Staff was fantastic and very attentive. I was just not that impressed by the food. The kitchen was running behind, and they did make every effort to make up for the long wait.
Bourbon is a fancy spot. The food and service do nothing t disappoint. Perfect for a celebratory night out or a business lunch.
Amazing meal! It was our anniversary, and we were greeted with two glasses of sparkling wine and a nice note. Steak was cooked to perfection, great service, and the s'mores dessert was one of the best desserts I have ever eaten!!
The service was horrible. We were there for over an hour before our drinks came. All drinks came out extremely watered down and awful tasting. They didn't ask for our order even after I requested for our appetizer order to be taken.
Perfect place for a nice romantic date! The best steak you will put in your mouth! Great service as well!
If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!! One of the absolute best meals I’ve had in a long time!! I only gave a 4 for value because it is expensive, but definitely so well worth it!!
One of the best fine dining locations in DC. Highly recommend!
Celebrated my sister’s birthday here, and all staff went out of their way to welcome and acknowledge the special occasion. Would return in a heartbeat.
Incredible service, ambience and food to match. An amazing experience.
The food was amazing. The truffle macaroni and cheese with lobster was out of this world. The filet and the scallops were the best we have ever had. The prices are up there but in this case you get what you pay for. We would return for sure.
Amazing as always! The food is outstanding!
It was great! However the table they gave us was mediocre— especially given we were celebrating our 5-year anniversary.
Very disappointed with my third visit to Bourbon Steak. First 2 were much better – this visit was terrible. It started with a long delay waiting for the waiter to come to our table – we let him know that we wanted to move dinner along because we had to drive to Baltimore that night.
My friend ordered Japanese A5 Wagyu medium-well and not bloody. Entrée was very slow in coming after our appetizer – even though we reminded the waiter to move meal along. We were ready for beef since we had shared only tuna tartare & small salad.
When the recommended A5 was finally brought, it was too bloody, and with too much outer fat rather than marbling. We requested a different cut and a do-over.
This cut was slow in coming and bloody as well. We requested our third attempt to get right, but meat came bloody. We told them we needed it cooked more quickly or we simply had to leave because we have been at the restaurant 1.5hrs. As we waited, my friend did not drink her glass of wine. I did not eat my steak, I waited for my friend's.
After 15 minutes we let a hostess and manager know we had to go. This manager listened very graciously. Then a more senior manager came over and did not listen to us, kept saying: It is unusual for someone to simply leave. To which I responded: Yes, we have never done so before – and why we stopped to inform you we are leaving.
This manager was much more interested in us paying for steak that was not cooked or delivered timely. The prior two times at Bourbon Steak, we had Wagyu but were satisfied. This manager should have followed the lead of the other manager and listened to concerns.
Left hungry at 1.45hrs paying for tartar, salad & glass of wine that we didn't drink. Moreover, my friend was very stressed by the manner this last manager spoke to us pointing out how we should eat our steak. Unfortunately for the restaurant, this manager has very poor communication skills. Instead of calming us down, he just added fuel to the fire.
Best service I’ve ever had. Jeanine was wonderful & very enthusiastic. My steak along with the truffle butter was amazing. If Jesus & mother Theresa had a baby my food would be the outcome. I’ll be back very soon!!!!
Very nice restaurant, attentive staff & food presentation was excellent. The food was ok... For the prices, I expected more food on my plate and a larger bottle of wine.
Absolutely fantastic as always! The table over looking the canal, terrific service and great food .....you can’t beat it! This is a wonderful restaurant.
Great quality and exciting tastes of food helped to overlook friendly but uniformed service
Delicious meal and outstanding service!
Incredible steaks. Great service. What can you say, it is the Four Seasons. Terrific!
everything from the check in to having a signed of Happy Anniversary.. We were celebrating 31 years with American Airlines. The food delicious it is always special.
Terrible experience. We frequently eat at Bourbon Steak. We’ve noticed that it is going downhill. This past visit was terrible. I wanted 1.5 hours for a medium rare steak which ended up being over cooked. I’m sad to say this, but I will never visit this place again.
As the best steak house in town, Bourbon steak delivered.
Great food!! My steak was excellent! Great flavor, well cooked and this restaurant exceeded my expectations. Expensive, but worth it!
Absolutely amazing staff and food. Favorite in dc.
Wow, what an incredible & special experience. Celebrated our anniversary and the food & service could not have been any better. Tried a new cut, the rib cap, which was delicious. And enjoyed a lovely bottle of wine which was recommended by the sommelier. Thank you for making our celebration so memorable!
Service was fantastic and even though we were given many surprises like champagne, desserts and truly wonderful service, it was way too expensive for the quality of food and prep this bourbon steak offers
The food was spectacular and overall, we had a great time. However, our sever (Amy) was distracted and completely disengaged from the moment we arrived until we signed the check. I'm not sure if she was having a bad night or was crazy busy, but we really felt neglected. We did have a party of 6, and she added gratuity (which I'm sure is a policy and not what upsets me) but I do wonder if she was checked out because she knew gratuity was already taken care of? The support staff (somm, hostess, food runners, etc) where OUTSTANDING. According to my husband, who dines here regularly, the service is generally impeccable across the board. Unfortunately not our experience on Friday.
Bourbon Steak has amazing steaks and definitely one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. I was not as impressed with the broccoli, asparagus or baked potato which were okay. The menu had one chicken dish, 2 fish entrees and a few lobster dishes but the bulk of the menu is steak. If you are a steak lover, I would recommend Bourbon Steak in the Four Seasons hotel.
