    Great steakhouse! I am a steak snob, so when I say this steak was good, I mean it! I loved the accompainments that went along with the New York Strip I chose, (I added au pouvron) and the side were so delicious! Good sizes and portions for the price, but it is expensive. It definitely is pricey but I think worth it for a really nice dinner out or for special occasion. The wine was divine, oysters were very fresh, and the bread is to die for! The server was very knowledgeable and attentive, and the ambiance was so romantic yet homey. We went there for valentine's day so it was a bit more crowded than usual but still super nice. The only thing that was a bummer is the fact that the desssert I wanted was sold out by the time I ordered. I wanted creme brulee but they were all out so that was a buzzkill (it was probably cause it was valentines day). But it's okay, overall highly recommend!

    Charbroiled oysters were fantastic. Steak tasted great but very poorly cooked. My medium-rare ribeye was nearly blue rare for a 2.5-3” cut. Cocktails were watered down and mostly bitterzs. Crème Brûlée custard tasted more like fluffy sous vide eggs than a custard. Waitress was excellent, ambiance was nice even though the table was incredibly small.

    Such a lovely hospitality and service and kind and polite bunch of hostesses, waiters, bar tenders,&… overall great food and great service I just wish when a family is going there with a reservation for a birthday or anniversary they aren’t seated at the bar area. Was very loud. Other than that we loved everyone and everything.

    This was a repeat visit at the invite of Chef Brad for feedback on my 1st experience. the first time I had the Wagyu steak, it wasn't quite what I expected based on recommendations I had received. I decided to share my feedback with the Team at DC prime and they openly welcomed my feedback and sent me a gift-card to give them another opportunity. I wasn't disappointed Chef Brad, The Manager and the bar staff where all top notch and my steak was phenomenal! I also love how they explained that positive feedback helps them to get better instead of people just writing a negative review and never returning. I really appreciated their honesty, customer service and will definitely be back!

    We had a great date night at DC prime. I will say they give you a lot of food, so if we went again I think my husband and I would have split one side or not got any sides at all. I got the French martini and he tried the lemonade cocktail and the raspberry martini - they were all really good. I was impressed that the server asked whether I wanted my steak rare or bleu, and even more impressed when they were actually able to accomplish serving it bleu. That's really nice to find in a steakhouse. I got the creme brulee for dessert, and he got whatever the chocolate ice cream cake thing was and it was a monstrosity. I would suggest that is probably more appropriate for 2 to 3 people. With two entrees, two sides, two desserts and four drinks between us, the bill was about $250 with tip. Definitely more of an occasion dinner, but worth the price!

    This was our fifth visit to DC Prime and we have decided that it is no longer worth the money. They add Old Bay to their lobster bisque, which I find totally inappropriate. The NY strip was cooked to perfection, though the beef itself could have been more flavorful. The lobster tails were warm-water, small, and relatively tasteless. I make better mashed potatoes myself. People at the bar had too much to drink and were becoming quite obnoxious. In fact, the atmosphere in the bar area made my husband think of a mob-controlled establishment. The glass sculpture in the main dining room needs cleaning. All considered, the experience did not equate to the money spent. We aren’t going back.

    We sat at the bar and ordered a drink until our table was ready and ordered the calamari. It was awful it’s cheap, frozen calamari. It was overcooked it was greasy they need to get a whole new brand. Once we got to our table, we ended up ordering shrimp cocktail, which was delicious it was cooked perfectly and the cocktail sauce spot on just enough horseradish kick. We shared the gem salad and also was very good. The baked potato was overcooked and very dry. We each ordered the 8 ounce fillet and it was terrible. My first and only bite although cooked perfectly it was so tough and chewy. I probably chewed my one bite 10 times before I could swallow it. I’ve honestly had more tender steak at outback. The manager made some comment that we didn’t get the center cut fillet and offered for us to get the Wagyu which is $128 for one piece. I’ve eaten fillet all my life and that really was the worst. Just as a reference, we ended up leaving and going to Morton’s in Reston and got their fillet bites appetizer because we were hungry and that was amazing; so tender - barely had to chew- was like butter! Seems to me that they’re using choice or just not good cuts of fillet not sure I’ll go back for dinner anytime soon

    First time to DC Prime for dinner. Have been several times for drink and appetizers as part of a get together. Our Server Brian F was outstanding. Great personality, great suggestions and very attentive. The food was nothing short of exceptional. It's a bit noisier than most of the other upscale steak houses, but that did not take away from the experience at all, and in some ways added to the experience. An outstanding first meal at DC Prime and it is now on the 'favorites' list.

    Attended for my daughters birthday, family of four, on a Thursday evening. we were sat against a table of four male work mates to our immediate right and a family of four to our left who arrived mid meal. The family of four who arrived late and we overheard them outwardly asked the question we had been thinking through, “with so many other open table options why are we sitting on top of each other?” Our waiter, while moderately nice, seemed generally distracted. He brought scallops out for my Son who ordered shrimp and Asparagus out to the table when we ordered Brussels sprouts. We let the Asparagus go and requested the shrimp which we received at no cost. Overall the food we received was great and we enjoyed our visit, however we drove away thinking that for this price point we would have expected things to go a bit more smoothly. Could have just been an off night.
