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.

    The steaks were so tough that we both thought it was dull knives. Nope! I could have done better with filet and ribeye from Costco at home!

    Charlie Palmer is a consistent and reliable restaurant for client dinners. Their ability to handle large parties makes it one of my go-to client dinner restaurants. The food is good, the service good (not great) and the noise level manageable. They know their own sweet spot and do it well.

    Amazing food and preparation but the service was fair as there were great delays between check ins with us and the waiters would change on us during the meal and also disappear for long periods of time.

    I made a reservation for 8pm. On my arrival the hostess was not welcoming detailing there was no table for me and i had to wait. She didn’t seem interested in helping me, so i asked if was just to wait around here, to which she then offered me a seat. I was eventually taken to my table. To my surprise there were atleast 3 open 2 seater tables even though i was told i had to wait for a table to become available. I waited for a good 10mins(yes I counted ) before someone came to give me a menu and take my order. I ordered sparkling water, which came almost immediately. But after that, everything took forever. My first cocktail took forever. I had a starter - which was good. Had the skewers. For dinner i ordered the waygu with spinach and a glass of Bordeaux. My steak came before my wine and i had to ask multiple times where my wine was. I only got it as i was finishing with my dinner. Disappointing. There seem to be a lot of staff on the floor but you also struggle to get service. It’s odd. Definitely expected more!
