Steakhouse
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 Zach Long, 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 for private events, offering the city’s most impressive view of the Capitol.

    Not as focused on service as in years past. Sat for very long time before we were acknowledged. Several times had to chase waiter down for drinks, etc. Lobster corn dogs were limp and gooey with batter. Sides were mediocre. I loved the ambiance and exciting atmosphere, but no place for a date with mediocre food and inattentive service.

    Charlie Palmer used to feel special. Now it just seems dated, overpriced, and the food left a lot to be desired. Many better options for a good steak in DC. The location can’t be beat so it’s a shame it’s gone down hill in our opinion.

    Very underwhelming! Steak initially horrible. Bad cut, over cooked & cold. Sent back, came back with better cut, but was under cooked. Hubby had Salmon that he said was below average. Possibly the way it was prepared. Best thing was dessert. Initial cup of coffee was cold, sent back & got a hot fresh cup. Manager comp’d the steak, and that was appreciated and not a request from us. We dine out very often, this had to be the most disappointing especially considering the price point & hype built up around this place. It was our first & last visit unfortunately.

    The "WHITE NOISE" that they call "MUSIC" was unaccepatble! Not only was it weird but it greatly interfered with normal table-talk conversation. Why doe this Restaurant think that people need to hear NOISE in order to enjoy an otherwise wonderful dining experience. People come for the quality of the food and the ambiance and NOISE is the last thing they expect, let alone want, after working all day ! Dr Marshall

    I am so disappointed. I have been going here since the place opened and the past two visits have been terrible. This used to be the kind of place where you had a team of servers, they asked about allergies and preferences, the food was remarkable, and the dining room was both unique and beautiful. Today, the water feature under the wine room is empty and smells. The floors are dirty. The service is just like any other place, where you would pay half the price. The food is perhaps the most disappointing. The steak was flavorless, tough, and coated in some pepper garlic rub to try and cover all that up. There was no presentation value, like I remember, and the overall quality does not match the price point or format of this restaurant. In addition to bad steak, the salmon was not fresh and had very little flavor. The Mac and cheese side, which used to be a staple, was very generic (penne w mozzarella, maybe a sprinkle of breadcrumbs on a small portion). I always liked the menu options here, but it all just seems so lackluster now. Maybe they are skating by on their location and ambiance (there are great views of the capitol), but I have been to the other Charlie Palmer restaurants in New York and northern ca. This has been one of my favorite restaurants, but needs a four correction.
