Staff is a bit officious in their effort to be formal. You can tell it is a Michael Minna restaurant because of the innovative menu. Picture this: A cast iron pan comes to the table with what looks like six warm swirling attached cinnamon buns but without sugar or cinnamon - instead they have the most delicious melted butter and...

This is no longer your grandparents' 4 Seasons. It was a happening, swinging place featuring numerous African diplomats with the leisure suits and pointy shoes, an African Naval officer, local Georgetown hipsters, and us rubes. We popped in for some dessert requesting someplace quieter than the bar (like the restaurant) since I am very sensitive to the lack of artistic... More

no, the decor is not cool, unless you are into 'retro'. it is noisy, the music blares in from the adjacent bar...so for ambience Bourbon scores '0'. what scores 10/10 is the food. i had the 18oz new york strip (on the bone) , i washed it down with a 2011 Napa Valley Shafer merlot...as a red wine & steak...

We had just arrived Friday afternoon. We came with friends and had lunch. We liked the fish tacos and the hamburger was great. It's pricey but we were vacationing so we ordered a bottle of wine!

This was my first experience at Bourbon Steak (located inside the Four Seasons Georgetown) and I was blown away. The staff here are very knowledgeable with the whole menu to include the wine list. I was warned that the meal itself would be plenty since the side dishes are served as family dishes meant to share. We started with Louis... More

I took 2 clients to dinner here last weekend on our first night of a week-long business trip. I've been to the Four Seasons for drinks on many occasions, but this was my first time having dinner there. Bourbon Steak was wonderful--convenient location, nice space, good service, and very nice food. The fact that on Sundays they offer Syrahs at... More

The only criticism or observation is just that we were very full afterwards! We very much agree with the reviews citing high quality of food and so on....and we did not experience the slow service that a few other reviewers did see. It was a busy weekday night - pretty much a full sitting and very busy lounge bar. Our... More
