Food was generally very good, but in August, a $14 tomato and mozzarella salad should have real tomatoes, not tasteless supermarket tomatoes. The service was excellent and the cocktails were quite good. However, when the restaurant is two thirds empty and we requested a quiet table or booth, don't seat us at a table right next to the bar beneath a very loud customer when there are several better options. Would not spend the money to go here again.

Service means everything. We have eaten here often with fabulous service and attention and great food. This weekend we sat right next to the swinging door back to the kitchen and it was a disaster. People swinging the door and running into each other. Our waiter was horribly slow, couldn’t help us pick a wine, had difficulty opening the bottle and never came back to pour the wine. Our ahared appetizers showed up before our plates did. It seemed to be an issue even to get our water filled.

Bottom line: great food, and the experience can be equally great. Poor wait staff make it a horrible dining experience.

This restaurant was absolutely the best!!! They had great food and the most beautiful part of our experience was how they put us in a private room for the size of our party. This allowed us to enjoy with each other without being distracted by everything around us. Our server was very attentive and ensured that we were well served and everything was progressing smoothly. We didn’t have to wait to get our food. I even thought that our choice of appetizers would drag the evening and have us waiting forever but I was amazed at how quickly it came out and we loved the selection given. We will dine there over and over again!!!

Celebrated our son’s birthday. What a wonderful special occasion restaurant! It is pricey, but they make it worthwhile. We had excellent service! They don’t have a children’s menu, but the server was a great help in pointing out the kid-friendly items. He even made a spectacular-looking chocolate milk for our granddaughter! He was so very accommodating! The steak melted in your mouth! The flavor was amazing! Sides are definitely big enough to share. Desserts didn’t disappoint either! All around we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend it!

Not worth the money. $267 for 3 people. No booze, no dessert. 1 shared app, steaks and sides. Maybe in NYC, but not Ashburn.

Very good experience-there was one small problem with our order-we had gotten one of the last type of steak and it went to the wrong table, but they gave us a healthy discount without us even complaining. Very good service and the food was great, but expect to pay a bit.

Normally DC Prime is our favorite place to have a steak, but not last Saturday. In all fairness, the restaurant was celebrating its 3 year anniversary and had a great special in place, but it did not live up to our expectations. We will give it try again, because we want to believe this was just an off night.

The service was the best I've ever had, however when the cheapest entrée is $50, dinner can get very pricey, especially when you pay extra for the sides. Having said that, thefgood was awesome.

Food here never disappoints, always an amazing experience. We had the seafood tower which everything on it was delicious. We tried one of the specials which was the Wagyu Beef and Oh my God was it melt in your mouth amazing. Best six ounces I’ve ever had. Thank you Rocky for your great service, attentive and for the great recommendations!

The service is fantastic as is the food. A bit pricey, but for an establishment that advertises as an “upscale” steakhouse I expected inflated costs. If you don’t mind paying the extra for fantastic service and ambiance, the food is worth it and we’ll be back.

We had an amazing time celebrating our anniversary at DC Prime. Arrived early and had some tasty cocktails and oysters at the bar. Made our way to the table and were presented with a note congratulating us on our anniversary - signed by the owner and chef. Service was incredible and made our night truly memorable, from the Waygu appetizer to the amazing steaks and sides to the key lime pie! Thanks to all that helped make our night so special

Our entire night was fantastic! we went the same night as game 5 of the Stanley Cups so when we got there we asked if there was somewhere quiet. The bar was packed and there was a viewing party outside. We didn't mind, we knew it would be busy, but they accommodated us and sat us away from the excitement.
Our waiter, Andre, was SO fabulous we've requested he be our waiter every time we go (several times a year).
Dinner did not disappoint, as always. We both had French onion soup. The flavor is perfect, the amount of cheese plentiful and gooey. We also ordered, upon recommendation from Andre, the lobster bites. He stated the chunk lobster was lightly breaded and served with grilled pineapple that would be the perfect amount of sweet with a little heat. His description was spot-on, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. For dinner I had the scallops and my husband chose a steak and mashed potatoes. Everything was perfect, the steak was cooked as requested, the scallops were huge and succulent, the flavor of the sauce on the pasta was incredible--not too heavy, very flavorful--and the mix of wild and portabella mushrooms was just right. The pasta was also cooked perfectly, and the mashed potatoes were incredibly flavorful and smooth. For dessert we opted to share the bread pudding and the crème brulee. Again, perfection. The berries in the bread pudding were a flavorful touch, and the sauce served was the right amount of flavor to offset the heaviness but tastefully done bread pudding.
The service, as I said, was probably the best we've ever had. My husband consistently had refills without request. I tried, again upon recommendation, one of the martinis. The blue cheese stuffed olives were a nice touch to offset the flavor of the martini. We were not rushed at all, and were asked at various times if we were ready for bread, our meal to be served, if we were interested in dessert. Andre was extremely attentive without hovering.
We will continue to patron!

First visit for a birthday dinner. Steaks were seasoned perfectly, cooked as requested, and delicious. A well-appointed dining room and bar, open kitchen, exposed wood and nicely lit. Good cocktails, good wine list, and attentive service. Would definitely go again, but it is a bit expensive.

We celebrated a friend's 40th birthday at DC Prime. Everything we ordered -- large seafood platter, calamari, wedge salad, filet mignon, plus all the sides -- was delicious and cooked perfectly. We all agreed that the seafood and meat was much better than Bourbon Steak in Georgetown. Also, the service was excellent. Can't wait to return!
