Bourbon Steak is at once refined and trendy, with a busy bar and somewhat quieter dining roon. It is among the best places for a business dinner in Washington. There is just the right amount of background noise to make conversations private. The service is attentive and the food is always competent. The wine list has a lot of variety.... More

I went to Bourbon Steak with my colleagues and we all enjoyed our dinner there, despite the very high noise level (children shouting and running around the place). They loved their steak that was tender and juicy, as I took the Amish chicken that was tasty but served in too small portion. The size of the side dishes (huge portions... More

Loved the place. Buzzing and great food. But there are dishes that stay imprinted in your memory and for me it was the bone marrow "custard" with uni. Like OMG...doesn't get any better!!!!

I had been to Bourbon Steak in San Francisco and had to try the DC version of the west coast icon. I was not disappointed. Loved it. Great steak, great wine, and great service. And loved the feel and ambiance of the restaurant. We had a good sized group, but service was right on it. The wine was terrific and,... More

We were staying at the hotel and popped down for a meal. obviously very full and couldn't seat us in the restuarant but had seating in the bar area. It does take a bit of an edge off the enjoyment as that was very busy, with loud music and low tables. However, the staff were very attentive and there were... More

Hoped to have a special b'day dinner. We waited 10-15 minutes just to have server come greet us. No tablecloths, no apparent dress code as we saw too many guys in drop down jeans with shirts hanging out, blaringly loud rock music to the point where conversation is difficult. Ordered a drink which they forgot to make/ serve until I... More

I went to a special event here so the experience, while excellent, would not be indicative for the regular diner. No reason to rate or post in this case.

Didn't have dinner but the bar was a lot of fun. Only problem is it needs more space for high top tables - space is very cramped. It is a popular place and gets jammed.
