Our meals were delicious, steaks perfectly done and the assorted sides all very good as well. I'd have been happier if the raw bar selections included clams on the half shell or other, non oyster options. Most steak houses have such options available. Service was not bad but was certainly not excellent.

Charlie Palmers was great. The service was fantastic even with a party of 15 and the food was fantastic. Seems to be well packed on any given night so looks like a reservation would be appropriate. The bathrooms have a bit of a surprise, watch the "key hole". Great night.

Very nice experience. Great service and amazing streak. We both had the bone in dry aged New York strip and it was amazing. The crab and shrimp appetizers were equally as great. The only slight negative is the veggies came out a bit overdone and Luke warm. I should have sent them back but was enjoying my steak too much... More

If you are looking for a handy place where you think that you will see or be seen by DC's political whos-who, this is the place. Just recognize that notoriety comes at a price. The food and drinks are good, not great. And, they are pricey. But, members of congress and their staff do frequent it. That is what you... More

I'm not a big steak person but their filet mignon us absolutely delicious. I ordered the creamed spinach which melts in your mouth. For dessert try the ginger ice cream.

This is a very popular lunch spot with the political types. Charlie Palmer is what New Yorkers think all DC restaurants are like - a classic white tablecloth steakhouse. It is good and has some good salads as well.

Charlie Palmer Steak Washington DC, located in the United Brotherhood of Carpenters building, is dedicated to another fine master craft: big, bold American food. Under the direction of Executive Chef Jeffery Russell, a Culinary Institute of America graduate whose interest in agriculture and aquaculture is rooted in his early years living in the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York, the menu not only stars the best American artisan beef cuts like an aged Angus Rib-eye "Cowboy" Steak but updated locally sourced seafood combinations, like Five Spice Carolina Shrimp with Quinoa, Pomegranate, Fennel, Feta and Marcona Almond.

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 where gathering around the table gets things done in the best possible way. 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.
