I took a solo trip to DC to celebrate by birthday and after quite a few recommendations from friends, I made a reservation at Bourbon Steak for this past Saturday night. Immediately upon arriving, the front desk team complimented my outfit, wished me a happy birthday, and escorted me to my table that had a little birthday card on it signed by their team.

James was my waiter and was AMAZING! He was super helpful with recommendations and got my night started with a complimentary champagne cocktail. I can't remember the name, but it was lemon and raspberry based and it's now my new favorite drink! For my appetizer, I got a shrimp cocktail and it was probably the best shrimp cocktail I've ever had. Right around the time the shrimp were delivered, another member of the staff team dropped off a complimentary duck fat fries trio and black truffle bread rolls. The fries were great, but the bread rolls stole the show--perfectly fluffy with a crispy salty top *chef's kiss*.

For my main, I ordered the 14 oz rib eye and a side of creamed spinach. The creamed spinach with the crispy little shallot topping was so good! The steak was perfectly cooked how I ordered it (medium, although I think I would've liked medium-rare a little more). The steak had the perfect sear and a great flavor. That being said, I wish I would've ordered some of the sauces to see if I would've liked them (but the steak did not need sauce at all).

For dessert, I got the cheesecake. A lot of folks around me got the s'mores and I was almost influenced based on the cool presentation, but I am so glad I got the cheesecake. It was probably the best cheesecake I have ever had--very light, almost whipped and it came atop fresh strawberries in a light sauce.

Overall, the food was excellent--but it was James that really made my birthday dinner perfect. He was super nice, helpful, and had me laughing. I didn't feel weird at all dining solo! I'll definitely be back and recommending Bourbon Steak to friends.

We reserved a table on the patio which is beautiful unfortunately we were seated at one of the very few tables that was not in the shade or had an umbrella and the table was directly underneath a speaker. It was unbearably hot and we were unable to have a conversation without shouting.

Ambience and food was great. Wait staff was spectacular. Local artist Halim Flowers art was on display added a very eclectic and modern flair to what I initially thought would be an “stuffy”, boring dining area. Ordered an array of items from the brunch menu. Everything was top quality and delicious. Our waiter James was outstanding. Very satisfying dining experience.

As always the service was exquisite. The ambiance was perfect because we had absolutely gorgeous weather for Sunday Brunch on the patio. And everything we ordered tasted absolutely sublime.The highlight of the meal was the 1/2 dozen fresh oysters on the half shell. Three from Maine and three from the Chesapeake Bay followed by the New York Strip Steak. Oh, we must not forget the fries cooked in duck fat. Yumm!

Bourbon Steak never fails...except that they took the pork chop off the menu.
The service is impeccable; cocktails are some of the best creations in town, and the meat never disappoints. If you haven't been, treat yourself - but know this level of dining comes with an appropriate price tag.

Food was excellent! They were able to recover quickly after our steak originally came out over cooked. They catered to everything we needed or wanted. A party came in a about a 1/2 hr before we were done and they were loud. So loud we knew all the details of one of the patrons upcoming wedding! Nonetheless, the food and the atmosphere was superb and we will be back on the next special occasion :)

Came here to celebrate my birthday and the ambiance and service was amazing. However, I ordered my steak medium and it was very blue, almost rare…I ended up having to send it back and got it back well done which obviously comprised the quality of the steak :( the lobster Mac and cheese needed salt & pepper badly. The atmosphere was great but the food was subpar for me.

The best part is what comes before the meal. The chef sends a selection of French fries and dipping sauces, and the truffled dinner rolls are the most delicious thing.
