If you love steak but are on a budget, go to Charlie Palmer’s for lunch. We went during restaurant week when you get a 3 course meal for $25 or for $15 more, you get an 18 ounce hunk of delicious meat! My husband loved...More

Sorry to say the experience was such that we are unlikely to return. The major problem was the food which lacked creativity but more importantly was poorly prepared if you strayed from simple steak and even one of those was poor

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.
