Spacious restaurant with outstanding steaks and outstanding service. There were multiple large groups at the restaurant, but service did not suffer at all. Very friendly, accommodating staff.

We have eaten here many times over the years with business colleagues and the quality and attentiveness of the service during a recent meal were the worst we have ever experienced here or at a 'high end' DC restaurant. After being seated by a well spoken fellow, the remainder of the evening was handled by a rotating group of men... More

You would think that a high end steakhouse would offer great service. The service was so bland and unattentive. Empty glasses, slow service, little followup. Food was amazing. Steaks were great and well prepared. Would Go Back Just For The food.

My husband eats meat while I do not. Every time we have gone, we both have had wonderful meals. The staff is incredibly professional and understanding about food allergies. The sommeliers have always done a wonderful job recommending wines that pair well with the food. Then there is dessert-- always fantastic! We have enjoyed both lunch and dinners.

We had our wedding dinner there and it was a terrible experience! It was a big night for us. We had just gotten married and were very excited about celebrating after. We had a party of 12. We had the worst service EVER. We were put in a private room which was nice however it turned out to be a... More

While I am a regular at the Capital Grille, a business associate wanted to go to Charlie Palmers for lunch. I have eaten here several times and have always had good food. The Hamburger was excellent, well prepared and tasty. The fries were excellent too. Service always seems to be a little "uppity" but overall a good place for a... More

In previous reviews we touted Charlie Palmers as a place where we had never had a bad meal. Alas, all things must apparently end. If anything good can be said about the most recent experience it is that, when Charlie Palmers does, it goes all the way. This was one of the worst experiences one can imagine. The first harbinger...

We loved the lobster, blue crab, hen of the woods mushrooms & potatoes just to name a few items we ordered. The grappa was smooth &... More

My old college roommate and I met for lunch and wanted to avoid the old food trucks we were used to (it had been 30+ years). We both went for the price fixe lunch ($25) and with soft drinks and tip the bill ran close to $80. Some will think this is reasonable for a small appetizer, a small main... More
