Incredible dining experience! We were celebrating both a college graduation and Mother's Day. Everything from the service, to the food and the drinks is exquisite. The duck fat fries are a must! The filet was cooked to perfection and the sides the perfect accompaniment. Drinks are inventive and very classy. Perfect spot for a special celebration!

Bourbon Steak is a VERY special restaurant. I know it is in the FS but the waitstaff, sommelier, and chef are all beyond top notch. From the moment we sat down to the birthday candle and cookies we were treated with the most amazing service. We had the caviar service which was beautifully presented and followed by the amuse voulete that was stunning in its complexity. The portions were correct in all regards and the steaks were perfectly prepared. The sides, especially the the truffle mac and cheese with lobster was perfectly seasoned and the porterhouse for two was amazing, and there were leftovers! We did not have room for dessert, but a birthday candle in a dessert was presented with THE BEST chocolate chip cookies. Bourbon steak exceeded our expectation and we will be back. Thank you all for such a wonderful experience.

Extremely overpriced on something we have gotten somewhere else for much more affordable pricing. Seems like they are taking advantage just for being in the four seasons hotel

We visited for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. It was outstanding. We were disappointed that we could not have a pre-dinner cocktail on the lounge but we survived. Once we were seated the specialty cocktails were amazing. We usually opt for traditional drinks that we know and trust but on this special occasion we got adventurous and boy was it worth it. Great cocktails. The service was truly spectacular in every way. We asked our server to take it slow. We didn't want to be rushed as we we staying at the Four Seasons and wanted to make a night of it on a rainy night in Georgetown. His timing was perfect. We had plenty of time between courses to relax and have fun. The food was outstanding. We tried their signature appetizers (an onion and fennel soup and lobster ravioli). Both were amzing followed by mouth watering filets.

The night was made perfect by our server. He was truly outstanding. Attentive, not over bearing, he listened and he delivered. Simply the best night we've had in years.

Took long to be seated and to order wine. Service could be improved. Sides were brought after steak which was unfortunate. Took a long time to get tea too

Overall this was a very nice restaurant and the meal was very good. However, the experience did not live up to the hype or feel like it was worth the price tag.

We requested covered outdoor seating and couldn’t have been more pleased. It began to rain and the staff offered to close/lower the side of the open area, but we enjoyed the fresh air and ambiance. Muz and the other staff were attentive and all of his suggestions from cocktails to entree were superb. We were celebrating our sons new job/promotion and never felt rushed or in want for anything during our dining experience. All our meals were cooked to the appropriate temperature and we enjoyed everything from the complimentary French fries with different preparations (truffle oil or Old Bay seasoning) and sauces to include pickled ketchup. We also appreciated the deconstructed s’mores. The marshmallow ice cream was unexpected and tasty. The only thing I can suggest is a more relaxing or subdued musical playlist. I’m not a huge country fan and that was pretty much all we heard during our 2 1/2 dinner. It’s been many years since we’ve dined at Bourbon Steak. I think we’ll be back soon.

We loved The Ranch and will definitely be back. It's a little dark under the tents and we would have preferred to be out in the sunshine, but it was also nice to have it be so quiet - we could really catch up without yelling over each other. The food was delicious! Thanks for a fun morning!
