Let me first say, the service is A+++. This is an ultra cool restaurant. We sat by the glass along the sidewalk, great table! The food all had good descriptions but it was all served Luke warm. Nothing was hot at all. I think the food sat under The heating lights for quite awhile. Since the Steaks were a bit... More

Took my mother and brother out for Mother's Day. Everything was absolutely spectacular. All with a view of the Capitol. Everybody had a different steak. I had one of the more affordable steaks on the menu (Pepper Crusted Culotte Steak) and by the end of the day everyone was stealing pieces of my steak. It was mouthwatering. The sides were... More

A complete stranger recommended Charlie Palmer, telling me not to miss the ice cream. A quick look at TripAdvisor convinced me to give it a try. I posted a picture to prove that I did NOT miss the ice cream. Because I wanted dessert, I skipped the sides and other delicious sounding offerings on the menu and went right for... More

I recently went here with my cousin who was visiting from out of town to celebrate his birthday. Amazing experience from the service to the meal to the atmosphere. Charlie Palmer is offering a weekly steak special for about $60 -- includes their steak of the week (for us an excellent NY strip), salad/appetizer, sides of polenta and asparagus, strawberry...

Our group shared a seafood appetizer (cold lobster, oysters and king crab) that was fresh and delicious. My filet mignon was tender and cooked to my liking. The desserts were over the top!

While a restaurant for what appeared to be movers and shakers my wife, myself and our kids casually dressed did not feel looked down upon. This is truly a restaurant for those who appreciate food and especially beef. At 50 years old I've been fortunate to experience the finer things in life but as my title states I have never... More

Over the Memorial Day Weekend, we stopped into Charlie Palmer. We had a lovely meal that was well priced for DC. The manager was kind enough to take us up to their rooftop to view the various monuments. We also enjoyed an usual bottle of wine from Texas ~ it was very good as well!

We made reservations for this place and having never been to Palmer's steakhouse and my family were treated incredibly well. I made a mistake and actually set the reservation for tomorrow night. However the hostess Brittany was so accommodating that she got my family of 4 a table at 8pm on a Friday night we were truly impressed! Then our... More

This restaurant had everything a fine dining experience should include. My husband and I travel to DC just about every year around my birthday. This year I decided to reserve a table at Charlie Palmer for my birthday celebration. A good steakhouse is perfect for us, and I had hoped Charlie Palmer would live up to its reputation as a...

Charlie Palmer Steak Washington DC, located in the United Brotherhood of Carpenters building, is dedicated to another fine master craft: big, bold American food. Under the direction of Executive Chef Jeffery Russell, a Culinary Institute of America graduate whose interest in agriculture and aquaculture is rooted in his early years living in the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York, the menu not only stars the best American artisan beef cuts like an aged Angus Rib-eye "Cowboy" Steak but updated locally sourced seafood combinations, like Five Spice Carolina Shrimp with Quinoa, Pomegranate, Fennel, Feta and Marcona Almond.

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 where gathering around the table gets things done in the best possible way. 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.
