I met friends here for a late dinner. As always, it feels like you dropped into a family establishment where everyone seems to know someone. The waitstaff is welcoming and friendly, the food choices are ample, and the serving sizes are more than adequate. My friends chose a specialty burger, and a steak. The steak looked amazing and I really... More

I had made reservations for our small wedding party online and asked for a few items, and neither were taken care of. One was that we be able to bring our own wedding cake, and the other was for a Gay Male Waiter, since this was a gay wedding. My spouse and I have been a couple for almost 39... More

This is a good old Washington Institution. It is a good old American steak house. I first visited while still on active duty in the 1980s. It has a traditionally gay male clientele. On our last visit, there were many straight people enjoying themselves in the jovial atmosphere. It's a healthy evolution of the clientele that is great to see.... More

Coming across this restaurant on a Fall eve, we chose to dine as looked very welcoming. Seated in the glass enclosed outer area with a view of 17th Street is very comfortable. Service was efficient. Food is typical American. The Caesar salad was nice and filling with rock hard croutons and little flavor. The jumbo fried shrimp were a step... More

We were at the door waiting for them to open...which they graciously did a few minutes early...our party of 6 had a mix of breakfast and lunch dishes but we all agreed the food was very good. (Hint: if you order the breakfast, ask if you can have ciabata bread instead of toast, makes a world of difference)

If you find yourself in downtown DC and want to get an excellent steak without the overdone red leather and artificial "clubby" feel - or the inflated costs - of most steak houses, treat yourself to the delights of Annies Paramount Steak House on 17th St. NW, between Corcoran and Q streets. My wife joined me in DC for the... More

Whilst staying in Washington DC we asked our hotel for a good place to eat - like a steakhouse. They recommended Annie's so we thought we'd check it out. It was a bit of a walking distance from our hotel but we were greeted by happy, friendly staff. We ordered our food and it came very quickly. We had chicken... More

Ok but nothing to write home about. Service was actually great by Ramon. Quality of the steak was good enough but not top grade.
