Any steak has to have the gorgonzola spread. Wow what flavor.

Outstanding food, great service. Quirky decor - this used to be a bank. The restrooms are in the basement, along with a private dining room and the vault! We had a delightful young server called Ebony, who was very attentive but not intrusive. Overall one of the best meals we had in Washington.

The server forgot our appetizer. The manager took it off the bill. It was not busy at all. Around 2pm on a weekday.

The food was good.

Usually my experience at District Chophouse is exemplary, but my most recent visit was meh. First my reservation was given to someone else. When members of my party arrived we were sat at a less desirable location than the one for which we were reserved. Our waiter did not provide us with the prix fixe lunch menu option which I didn’t appreciate. I thought perhaps it was no longer available and learned later it still was. One person requested their salmon topped with Oscar preparation, the waiter seemed annoyed because she did not have a steak. She insisted that she has had it before and the menu does not specify that you must have a steak in order to have it. Finally, our party of 7 was celebrating the birthday of two friends. We asked the bill be split evenly 5 ways. The waiter insisted this was too difficult to do, and instead of splitting the bill 5 ways presented everyone with their own check. I was so surprised by how many simple requests became complicated. Despite this I imagine I would return again.

I went here for date night, because we were looking for good food in a casual like atmosphere. My recommendation - order the New Zealand Lamb Chops. They were so delicious.
Avoid the white cheddar mash potatoes, they were not that great and way too heavy.

Had a very good experience at the chophouse. Our server Kevin was amazing. Food was good, I had a strip that did not exibit the characteristics of a “Angus” steak as it was not as tender as I would have expected. I would say the food was VERY good just a little underwhelming. I WOULD go back here again. Reservations are a MUST. My party arrived and was immediately seated.

Cornbread was very tasty!

Very professional service and exceptionally prepared food. In the 10+ occasions we’ve visited District Chophouse (we visit DC annually) we’ve always been pleased with our experience. The atmosphere is terrific for both causally and formal dinners. It is moderately expensive, but the quality of service and food is worth it.

Our waiter was AMAZING, he was very attentive to our immediate needs, as well as the ones we didn't know that we needed :-) (such as - suggestions, ideas, cleanliness of the table...etc.). The food was incredible as always, the salmon was a big hit, cooked to perfection. The room was energetic but still quite enough for an intimate conversation. Another big hit is the lobster salad-soooo good!

Once again enjoyed District Chophouse during National Police Week. We had reservations which made the dining experience that much easier. We also found room at the bar before dinner; very good and amiable bartender. T.J. was our waiter; good dinner suggestions, most friendly.

This was our third trip here. We love that beer brewed is on site. The waiter was super friendly and very knowledgeable about all the items on the menu. He even allow us to try a couple of brews before actually ordering which help immensely. This place has become our top place to visit anytime we are in the district.

As always, the steaks were excellent. The sides were average. There was an issue with the back of house. Our entrees were delivered before our appetizers. The issue was quickly addressed and resolved, with the cost of the appetizers removed from our bill. All in all, a decent dining experience. We will return.

I made the reservation for my daughter and her friends for their prom dinner. They had a wonderful time, enjoyed their meal, and were happily surprised when the manager complimented them on their good behavior and gave them free desserts. The staff went out of their way to make their special evening even more special. That is the sign of a good establishment. We definitely will be patronizing this establishment again.
