An enjoyable double date night. Cocktails, champagne, steak, fish, and salads with steak.. Dinner was enjoyed by all.. And the food was much better than our visit here a couple years ago. This time, there will be a shorter gap between visits.

We arrived 30 min early to our open table reservation. They seated us early. The steaks are always good. My husband had a med-well done piece of prime rib. It was a hunk of meat but really too big. It could have been sliced in to 2 pieces. It was very un -appetizing. He did not eat all of it. It was crusted in pepper since it was an end piece of meat but on such a large piece of meat it was overpowering. My filet mignon was perfect. Our waitress was a bit preoocupied. I would have liked my drink refilled.

We do not live in DC but EVERY time we are there we come to the District Chophouse. Whatever you select be prepared for it to be the best example of that food that you have ever eaten. The food is beyond compare. The only way to make the food better is to have a staff that knows how to present an exceptional meal. Daniel’s expertise and service made our meal a wonderful experience. The ambiance was perfect. The only time the quiet was disturbed was when the Caps scored a goal. The tv in the bar was on and everyone cheered when they won the game. Go Caps!!! Seriously, if you are in DC and you don’t eat here then you have cheated yourself in a big way.

I have been to District Chophouse many times. Last night, before a Capitals game, the service was the worst I have ever experienced. Extremely slow. Took forever for our drinks to arrive. Repeated requests for butter, water, etc. The food was fine when it arrived but the poor service was a real downer.

We went there for my daughters birthday before the Ballet. The host put a “Happy Birthday “ card on the table doe my daughter, which was nice. The problem was the waitress took the card & didn’t give it back. Kinda strange. She wasn’t very attentive to our table. I put my coke glass at the edge of the table ( for a refill) & she took it away without asking me if I would like a refill. I had to keep asking different different people to refill our water & sodas because the waitress didn’t come by. I ordered my Prime Rib medium well, it came out rare. I will say the food came out fast, just not want I ordered.

My server, Daniel, was personable and not patronizing. Yes, you get free cornbread. I had a cherry blossom special (duck) and it was wonderful. The asparagus - well, I have had better. I loved not feeling weird since I was a lone diner. Price was not too bad.

Visiting D.C for business and stubbed across this gem during my web search.

Our server Vanessa as well as the rest of the staff were impeccable and genuinely concerned that our dining experience was enjoyable .

The recommendation of Calamari as an appetizer was spot on and was prepared to perfection.

The crab bisque came with generous amounts of crab which translated into a flavor explosion with each spoonful.

The Stuffed Pork Chop was moist and tender and prepared well.

The quality of both the service and food we received far outweighed what we paid for our evening of enjoyment.

I will highly recommend and encourage friends, family and colleagues to experience the fantastic dining experience while that visiting the D. C.

Great food, service, and setting. A lot of people but not a noisy place. An informal place. It specializes in steaks but has a good selection of other choices. Reasonably priced for the location (around the Verizon Center in DC. Highly recommend it.

Seriously one of the best restaurant experience of our lives. If you dont book a table when you visit DC, you will have missed out of a great dining experience. All the staff were outstanding, the food unbelievable, and the decor truly breathtaking. Thank You Chop House, this was my third visit and I will be back!!

The food was okay, I was hoping for a great steak but It was just okay. When you pay 40.00 for a steak I expect it to be amazing. Also it came medium well and I had to send back because I ordered medium rare.
