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.

    Great place to eat. My whole experience there was great. My husband and I enjoyed the meals we ordered, and the service as well. So far, it's one of the best restaurants we've tried so far.

    The center cut filet was extremely tender. Obviously this is a higher end steak house but the prices weren't extreme. A very nice experience.

    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.

    The customer service was superb, their attentiveness and attention to detail was second to none. The LeGrand Seafood Tower was delectable, as was their Tuna Tartare. They offered a complimentary glass of champagne with our meal. If this was my experience for lunch, I can only imagine the level of service they provide for dinner. I will definitely return to this restaurant.

    The place is pretty and the greeters and servers were courteous, but after they showed us to our table it took a significant amount of time for a waiter to take our drinks order. The waiter and servers were friendly, but they were not as professional as you normally see at restaurants of the level Charlie Parker should be. The bread was not warm. The appetizers are limited, as they mostly consist of salads. The steak we ordered was ok, but not superb. We asked for medium and it was cooked medium-well. However, the sides were very good. The desserts sounded interesting but we wanted to leave and did not order any. Unfortunately, we would not repeat our visit given that we have had delicious meals accompanied with a more enjoyable experience in other places.

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Charlie Palmer in DC! We chose this place to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary while visiting the DC area this year, and it did not disappoint. We LOVED our server, and the staff made every attempt to create such a lovely atmosphere of celebration. They even arranged for us to take a rooftop tour to take pictures. :) The only (and slightest) hiccup we encountered was that our steak was over cooked, but this was a minor thing. Overall, we enjoyed our experience, and we hope to return soon!

    We went mid week - food was good - I feel it was NOT what I would expect for the prices. The location was pretty, restaurant was big and empty so why sit a table full of men right next to us. Service was good for what the world is experiencing right now but had to ask for water and tea several times. We are not from DC and not familiar with the steak offerings there. This might be the best the city has to offer ... This might be a good place to come if your business is paying the bill and you dont care about pricing vs flavor vs value.

    We chose this restaurant to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary and to celebrate a few other milestones, we were dressed up (suit for my husband, dress for me). The restaurant was beautiful, with lovely windows along the street overlooking the edge of Capitol Hill. When we being seated, there were several tables open along the windows, but we were shown to a table next to a pillar facing inside. We asked to be moved to a window table, as there were several open. Once we were seated, we ordered a bottle of champagne ($175--not unexpected, but again, this was a celebration). They didn't have said bottle and brought out an alternative that was similarly priced, but not nearly as good (too sweet). The bottle was then kept chilled somewhere (behind the bar maybe, but not table side). Wine glasses were never removed from the table, our glasses sat empty for much of the meal, and when dinner arrived (before the app plates were cleared) it was only luke warm. We had to fix the sides that were delivered incorrectly and had to ask three times for the horseradish to be brought to the table. For a meal of this price point and the reviews on the restaurant I would have expected better. It was Friday night and not busy (which I attributed to the holiday weekend), but could have been an indication that the restaurant was just not up to an expected level of service.
