Looking for a classic steak restaurant to entertain clients who had never before been to DC, I decided to try Charlie Palmer based on (i) good reviews, (ii) "Capitol views", and (iii) attractive decor, etc. What a disappointment. First, the food was fine -- nothing...More

It's 5 days later and I am still asking myself if Charlie Palmer Steak is a run-of-the-mill steakhouse with fine dining prices or is it a 5-star restaurant that simply just underwhelmed me? First, the beer list was not current nor did the waiter seem...More

Lovely lunch, I ordered the steak salad and it was cooked to absolute perfection. The salad was interesting and creative. The service was attentive, but discrete. All round, a really great place! Try and get a window seat, the views of Capital are fabulous!

We started with a cocktail at the bar before dinner and enjoyed the friendly bartenders and nearby travelers. When we sat for dinner, we enjoyed the shrimp appetizer followed by the deliciously tender Japanese Wagyu. Charlie Palmers will allow you to bring your own wine...More

Although there was no real malice, the service was poor as a result of horrible training, horrible hiring, and overall apathy. The Som was the worst I have ever seen.... He could care less about anything. Did not bring the wine for 30 minutes and...More

Charlie Palmer Steak Washington DC, located in the United Brotherhood of Carpenters building, is dedicated to another fine master craft: bold American food. Under the direction of Executive Chef Mike Ellis, the menu not only stars the best American artisan beef cuts like an aged Angus Rib-eye "Cowboy" Steak but updated locally sourced seafood dishes, like Chesapeake Bay Oysters and Soft Shell Crab Fritto Misto. Much more than a steakhouse, the timelessly stylish restaurant moves the political power meetings out of the back room and into private dining spaces, sleek enclaves of dark wood. Located off the wide, open expanse of the National Mall, Charlie Palmer’s Steak’s rooftop terrace can accommodate 400 guests, offering the city’s most impressive view of the Capitol.
