Steakhouse
Charlie Palmer Steak Washington, DC, located in the United Brotherhood of Carpenters building, is dedicated to another fine master craft: bold American food. Under the direction of Executive Chef Zach Long, the menu not only stars the best American artisan beef cuts like an aged Angus Rib-eye "Cowboy" Steak but updated locally sourced seafood dishes, like Chesapeake Bay Oysters and Soft Shell Crab Fritto Misto.

Much more than a steakhouse, the timelessly stylish restaurant moves the political power meetings out of the back room and into private dining spaces, sleek enclaves of dark wood. Located off the wide, open expanse of the National Mall, Charlie Palmer’s Steak’s rooftop terrace can accommodate 400 guests for private events, offering the city’s most impressive view of the Capitol.

    You would think for the price point at this restaurant, you'd get top notch service. Not at all the case !!! My steak was not cooked as order, was tempted to send it back, but was afraid i'd have to wait till breakfast to get it back... Bottom line, if you crave a streak when in DC, save yourself the aggravation go to some other restaurant.

    $75 for lunch for two. One salad, one middling chicken club sandwich (much smaller sandwich than they've served in the recent past) accompanied by a very small portion of fries. One iced tea and one Arnold Palmer. I repeat: this cost $75.

    Made on line reservation for 9 PM. Got call at 5:30 and was advised they closed at 9 and can we come earlier at 8:30. Arrived at 8:30 and placed was packed. They were still seating people at 9:30. Staff overwhelmed and food sort of thrown at us. Not the usual CP experience

    Hadn’t been here since pre-pandemic. It had been a favorite but regrettably has fallen for me. Big service lapse at the start, when we were ignored—and left without a wine list—for a good long while. Steak menu now seriously overpriced. $75 for the NY strip? No thanks.

    Took 15 mins for a waiter to come (although we received water right away). had to ask a busser to send the waiter again to take our food order. One of our sides arrived at room temperature, had to send it back. Scallops and salads were fantastic. Steaks were not fabulous. Arrived at 7:15pm, left at 10pm due to slow service.

    Ok so we were excited to experience this place for our anniversary. Sadly we was highly disappointed. 1st we were shoved in a corner that wasn't comfortable especially with me being 8 months pregnant, and when I asked the hostess can we have another seat placement she just looked at me as if I spoke another language. The service was subpar. It was too many times during our meal the waiter didn't show back up for long periods and we were left waiting looking crazy. The food was ok, steak was great the bearnaise sauce was horrible, mushrooms were too tough to chew. I was hoping you at least get a complimentary dessert for our anniversary and we did not get anything except a meal that wasn't enjoyable. The ambiance was however nice. Would I be back...most likely not.

    We left the restaurant and came back about 45 min later as my wife forgot her sun glasses on the chair we sat. But they were gone missing when we came back to the restaurant and search around. How could that be have gone so fast? Who took them? This is highly suspicious!?!

    USED to be my favorite restaurant, but that was a decade ago. The fountain in the middle of the room, empty and down to bare, dusty concrete with a few hoses and remaining rocks inside kind of sets a depressing tone as you're shuttled behind the wine wall to your seat. Lovely server who did his best; hangar steak was recommended by him but chewy and lackluster. VERY lovely that for my birthday our server offered to show us the view from the roof above the restaurant, which was the most amazing part of the evening. A sad drop from a previously sterling experience, though not surprising given the challenges restaurants face with staffing and training during COVID pandemic. I do wish them well but I won't idolize the place as I used to during its height of impeccable service and outstanding decor and dishes.

    A little get away from the children me and my husband decided on Charlie’s. Initially our decision was because it was a rooftop restaurant… we didn’t experience that however the atmosphere was very calming and poetic. Loved the experience. Food was magnificent and employees were the best.

    Terrible cuts of meat that weren’t cooked to the proper temperature. The manager did not handle any of the issues well. We will never go back. The waitress ignored us after we sent back one of the steaks. DC is full of good restaurants try somewhere else.
