This is what you want when you want a really good steak, sophisticated atmosphere and solid service. There are few surprises here, but who cares? I like that Charlie Palmer's takes a step away from classics like the Palm and Peter Luger's and infuses the feel with something new. It's not trying to feel like a classic in the footsteps... More

I had a business lunch at Charlie Palmer's near Capitol Hill today. I ordered from their lunchtime 3 course fixed menu. The beet salad was quite good- they didn't overwhelm the beets with too much of anything else as some places seem to do- kept it simple and tasty. I had their sliced steak for the main course, and while... More

Have been frequenting CP's for business lunches and dinners over 7 years and I'm finally driven to say this place is getting tired. Menu is limited and seldom changes, food quality is average, service is impersonal and not very attentive. Overall the experience is over priced. The location is impressive for business travelers or DC events but they seem to... More

Friday nights there is no corking fee, a plus. The service was excellent and the steaks delicious and cooked to perfection. Only complaint, unlike Ruths Chris or Capitol Grille, you have to pay for sauces. If you are paying $40+ for a steak, choice of sauce should be included.

Every time I visit DC, I entertain customers at Charlie Palmer. Every time the service and food is excellent. Todd, their GM is outstanding and insures excellence in all areas. The wine list is great, AND if you happen to bring in your own favorite, there's NO corking charge for any domestic wine! I have NEVER heard of that before... More

Superb steakhouse, and an easy walk from Capital Hill. Waiter was fun and attentive not fussy or snobby. Great place for business lunch or dinner

Sure, this is a restaurant with easy access to the Capitol. But if you are touring the city, walk up to Union Station and save yourself a few bucks. Everything about the place is fine, except the prices. this is a high-rent location. Unless you want to feel like a lobbyist, walk around the corner to the places for regular... More

This is a first class steakhouse with an excellent variety of offereings, excellent service and a wonderful setting. A must try is the chilled cucumber and avocado soup. I had the butter poached maine lobster and filet mignon and my wife enjoyed the European cut filet. Both meals were wonderfully prepared and delicious. The sides are also quite good and... More

I had the burger & my lunch companion had the filet salad. We were both very happy. The service was fine. Prices are generally pretty steep, though $15 for a burger in this location is not really expensive.
