This is an expensive restaurant "specializing" in steaks. My wife and I both had a green salad, filet mignon, rare, and a deserts, some sort of tart and a mix of berries. The salad was absolutely uninspired. Baby greens with a barely perceptible dressing. The steaks arrived as chunks of meat on an otherwise empty plate. No garnishment of any... More

With the mix of all the restaurant in DC, we decided to go to the Four Season hotel and the restaurant, obviously it's the place to be where friends and coworkers meet after 5PM, I tried the Burger with side of the fries and the wife got Steak, every thing was delicious, the only downfall of the place was the...

I have occasion to eat out frequently for both business and pleasure and rarely experience the style and attention to detail this restaurant offers. The service is impeccable as you would expect in a restaurant in the lobby of the Four Seasons Hotel in our nation's capital, but each course is preceded with a complimentary chef's tasting which gives the...

You can find good steak in DC, but few are above the average. This is the steak experience that moves toward top shelf. The service is excellent - very attentive. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. We ordered the mushrooms and mashed potatoes. Everything is a la carte. The prices are high, but the location in Georgetown and... More

We went to Bourbon Steak (in the Four Seasons Hotel) looking for a great steak and it did not disappoint. We were so impressed with the level of service, amazing meal and general overall experience. The tuna tartar (a Michael Mina specialty) was incredible, and both of our steaks were perfectly prepared. The Waygu was as expected phenomenal (melt-in-your-mouth) and... More

A fine place for a business lunch. Decor is classy, ambience serene. The parade of waiters don't get in your face, though they all look like the same - something between Georgetown hipster and Jordanian secret service. Bread a touch greasy. Fresh greens were excellent. Filet mignon was perfect - black on outside and barely past raw on the inside.... More

It is located at the Four Seasons Hotel. The food is good, especially, if you go for steaks! I had a steak and grilled asparagus - large portion. It is not an amazing dining experience, but it is good quality. What I missed is a bit more atmosphere, and perhaps separation from the rest of the hotel? But if you... More

I made the mistake of going to a steakhouse and ordering the duck. The steak here is wonderful, but the duck needs help.

Despite excellent service and tasty pre-meal French fries, the rest of the meal was a trip downhill. The main course portions of fish were paltry and lacked flavor. The prices were beyond outrageous. The adjacent bar filled with alcohol-fueled revelers, turning us into an audience for a raucous, low-class reality show. Two thumbs down.

I had the lobster pot pie, spinach and (on menu) CLASSIC YUKON GOLD POTATO PURÉE, GRAVY aka whipped potatoes. However, the potatoes was whipped in perfection with drizzle butter and light olive oil. Nevertheless, my husband had a hearty steak that he enjoyed accompanied with a bone marrow custard & unagi. The service, food, atmosphere and experience was a fulfilling... More
