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

A little pricey but the best steak you could ever find! Outstanding service and great food in a sophisticated atmosphere in walking distance from the US Capitol

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.

Nice looking restaurant near capital building. Food here can be good but some dishes are not simply not prepared to the same standard. The good: The bib salad. This was excellent and can not be faulted as the lettuce was cold, fresh and crisp and the dressing was superb. Only thing missing was a grinding of fresh cracked pepper, unfortunately... More

A group of us went for a business dinner but the noise level from the nearby bar and other tables was too loud and made it difficult to talk. The service was excellent and the food was very good but for the expense it could have been better. It was a convenient walk from where we were staying and the... More

Lovely food, best service we had in Washington and a nice ambience in the restaurant. Ou only disappointment was the view - or lack of it. We had asked our concierge in the hotel for a restaurant with a good view of the Capitol building - they recommended Charlie Palmers and booked us a table in the window. We also... More
