Hands down the best filet I have ever eaten! My friend got the chicken and it was delicious, so tender you could cut it with a fork. The organic green salad was delightful! Superb cocktails. This is a higher end restaurant, I would recommend wearing...More

Our dinner here was mostly very good, my husband really enjoyed his steak and the sides we had were great (gnocchi and broccoli). My duck was quite chewy due to the fat not being crispy, which was a little disappointing, although it tasted good. The...More

Totally embodies my image of a DC steakhouse - politicians, hearty steaks and stiff high-brow drinks.

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.
