Great choice for brunch. Could not get a dinner reservation. There was plenty of seating but very short staffed so I think that they are not filling to capacity. Bacon clothesline was the best bacon my husband ever had he said. Beautiful place.

Everything was generally great. Hard to hear/understand waiters with thick accents and masks on top. They could do a better job taking “slang” out of their language and annunciating to overcome the mask. This issue really detracts from the experience.

Only issue we had with the meal: The Béarnaise was not made correctly, the way it was made was Hollendaise. The waiter brushed it off. I would have expected “let me have the kitchen correct it”

All Meat was prepared correctly as ordered and was delicious. We really enjoyed the view of the hotel, it’s a beautiful building and super clean with a very hip vibe of music. It was packed busy by 9pm on a Saturday. Cannot wait to return again.

The hotel is absolutely beautiful and you get great mezzanine seats to the ambiance. The staff and friendly and accommodating. The food is decent for the price point.

The biggest problem I have with this restaurant is when the bill came. It was Saturday brunch where I got the steak and eggs and she got the lobster scramble which are both supposed to be $18. When I got the bill, they charged $32 and $28 respectively. When I pointed it out, the staff apologized and fixed it, but I thought it was weird that it happened at all.

Service started off great- but as things got busy, it became difficult to get attention and we felt ignored, especially considering prices here. No complaints about food or noise.

Went to celebrate a Birthday on 29 September 2021. Actually arrived early for our reservation and was able to be seated upon arrival. Our service was exceptional and special shout out to Isaias for taking such great care of us. We had the Oysters Rockefeller with Bubbly appetizer to start. The oysters were done perfectly and the Prosecco provided was a perfect accompaniment. For our entrees we had the Porterhouse for two, whipped potatoes, and mushrooms. The steak was cooked perfectly and so well seasoned. For dessert we had a peanut butter chocolate torte that was accompanied by Birthday decor as the perfect ending to an excellent Birthday meal.

Also of note, we had a bottle of Zinfandel with our entree that was a great match for the steak. Doug was excellent as our sommelier.

Will definitely be returning for future date nights.

It was absolutely incredible. The location and ambiance is second to none. Its definitely located in a 5 star hotel and the restaurant service and food are 5 stars as well. We thoroughly enjoyed it!
The bread is the best we have ever eaten! They included a recipe for it.
We would definitely recommend. Our waiter Paul was exceptional.
Would definitely recommend!

David Burke does steaks and meats a lot better than other chains. They have more interesting sides, apps and non-meat offerings. Spouse had a filet, I had veal chop, both huge and cooked as ordered. Oysters Rockefeller and wedge salad were our starters, also very good. Their candied bacon is in everything. Love the gruyere popovers.
We had very attentive service, a glitch at the end with a lost Prosecco and missing sweets.
My biggest complaint was the disco music echoing through the lobby bar area and engulfing the steak house. Cavernous walls and ceiling added to the noise.

There is no better steakhouse in DC (and, yes, we have tried all of the ones worth trying). The location is unmatchable (open-air in the Trump International lobby), the service is impeccable (Paul was our server last time, but we have been here 5+ times and never disappointed), and the food remarkable. Our favorites include the wedge and the cowboy ribeye. The popovers are a mainstay. Don’t miss this one even if you aren’t a fan of the President.

The restaurant is beautiful. It sits above the gorgeous lobby and the ambiance is wonderful. Our outstanding service started with the men running the valet and kept going with every person we encountered. The food was nothing short of amazing! Get the Clothesline Bacon, it is excellent! The oysters were so fresh, filet mignon cooked perfectly and same with the salmon. For dessert we had the cheesecake tree and the peanut butter chocolate mousse dessert, which both were delicious. We had such a fabulous time. Mohammed was our waiter and he was so attentive, accommodating and nice. All of the waitstaff was! We spilled our martini by accident and quickly they came and cleaned it right away. We were there for a birthday and they brought out a dessert with a sparkler-it was so fun. The cost is appropriate for the spectacular food and service. We would absolutely come back.
