This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - STK artfully blends two concepts into one—the modern steakhouse and a chic lounge. A large central lounge area is furnished with creamy leather banquettes and textured crocodile tiles, and is surrounded by an elevated dining room for more formal dining. Theatrical lights illuminate each table, while a DJ creates an energetic vibe throughout the entire space. STK Washington D.C. is located in Dupont Circle and is in close proximity to D.C. attractions as well as being in the heart of the best night life in the Nation's Capital. As anticipated, steak is the main attraction. STK offers small, medium and large cuts of meat, as well as naturally raised options and market fresh fish entrees. Aside from steak, signature items include Parmesan Truffle Fries; Lil’ BRGs; Sweet Corn Pudding; and Jumbo Lump Crab Salad.

We love STK! Everything was outstanding! We are so sad that they are closing down. One of the top restaurants in NYC couldn't servived in DC. Really bummed 🙁

Horrible experience for a birthday party. Overpriced restaurant with lacking basic customer service. They sat us at the door, and I requested a different table which was denied and hostess said they "expected a full house". The house never got full, in fact. It was a Saturday and there was a dj, and music blasted so loud, we couldn't keep a conversation.
Food was average. My Brussels sprouts were burned.
Glad they're shutting down for good!

VERY limited menu. Service with a smile but slow. Good music but would not return unless they expand the menu.

Was terrible. Played rap music all night. Staff was rude and lacked knowlege. No dress code. Gangsters in baseball caps and sneakers.

Had to send my food back 2 times. Steak kept coming back rare. Waitress was not very good. Seemed like we asked for everything twice. I expected much better from a place with a reputation like STK.

Don't go expecting a true steakhouse experience else you will be disappointed. This is the first time in quite awhile where I had to use the sauces they provide to finish my steak.

Good for ambience or late night drinks or night amongst friends.

After traveling all day to meet my son... We spent time and money out in the very cold weather to get to STK for a late dinner... my son's last meal in DC after serving his country in the House of Representatives. Arrived on time to an insanely loud scene. The host informed us that they closed the kitchen and would not serve us even though we had a confirmed reservations and arrived on time. He was incredibly rude and lied about having attempted to call us. I had my phone in my hand with not one single call from STK. Will remember this and never go back to any STK locations after this treatment. Tell two friends... and so on. Unbelievable.

I had never been to STK before, but we were looking for something to do to celebrate my coworker's birthday, and they came in clutch with the last minute reservation. We were seated immediately, and the service was amazing. The food, although small portions, was amazing. But what do you expect from an upscale restaurant but small portions? Music was playing adding to the light and inviting feel. All around, an amazing night and dining experience!

They're closing soon but we had a blast. Great atmosphere (but it got really loud with the live DJ on Friday night later on... Around 9:30), great food, but too expensive.

Service was terrible! We waited 10 mins to be seated and another 20 mins before a server came. My husband had to get up and find someone so we could get served. Had to keep checking on our food, had to get our desert to go.... terrible experience and highly disappointing. Not the best experience for our anniversary celebration.

Deer-in-the-headlights service. They changed their french fries recipe from the last time i was there a year ago, and they are now not as good as mcdonald's . why they think pulsating music overhead is conducive to a fine dining experience is beyond me. my hearing returned to normal the next day.

It was my third time going in about a year, as a group of us celebrated a co-worker's resignation. I love the hip atmosphere, with the modern decor. I had the Skirt steak (with STK Bold sauce), mashed potatoes, jalepeno grits, creamed spinach, Rock Creek shrimp and Kale Caesar salad.
