Steakhouse
A lifelong dream of owners Mark Craig, Kevin Cox and Rick Crowe, DC Prime delivers an inspired menu, a rich atmosphere and superior service. Our name was chosen to honor the rich heritage of our nation's capitol, and America’s unique privileges of freedom and choice.

Our mission: to provide dining and culinary excellence to every guest we serve.

We serve only USDA Prime Beef, which is the top 1% of all beef in the United States, chosen to meet or exceed our owners' rigid standards that include tenderness and taste. All of our beef is supplied by Consumers Meat Packing of Chicago, IL...purveyors to many of the finest steakhouses in the United States. The same superior standards apply to our fresh seafood, sourced direct from North Coast Seafood of Boston, MA., our whole lobsters, from the cold waters of Maine and our Mero Sea Bass Steaks, overnighted from Honolulu Fish Company, Honolulu, HI.

Steak was good, skimpy on sauce on the the add-ons though... Appetizers were ridiculously not worth it, ($17 for undercooked, underseasoned, and bland fingerling potatos) Service was passable, nothing special, had to pour my own drink refills, not remotely close to what I'd expect from a restaurant of this price point.

The food and service were good but someone was experimenting with very loud music throughout our meal which disrupted our conversation . Very disappointing for an establishment with this price point. I expect better control on the ambiance.

Service was lacking. Waited over 15 minutes for service. Had to ask for bread. No water refills. Wrong order brought to table. Your prices do not reflect what you are offering.

The food and drink were absolutely DELICIOUS. The service was impeccable. It is very pricey, but you get what you pay for so I'm not complaining. We went early on a Sunday and there was hardly anyone in the restaurant. Unfortunately, our table was in direct line of site of a window where the setting sun was in my face the entire meal. I should have said something because I am confident they would have moved us.

This is our first visit to DC Prime Steakhouse celebrating my daughter's birthday.
Although the food was very expensive, it was amazingly good; the place was beautifully decorated, and the service was unbelievably professional. The only concern we encountered was our seating was in direct view of the door used for the servicers to deliver food and dirty dishes. Otherwise, we really enjoyed our dining experience and plan to return in the near future. Thanks!

Our Second trip to DC prime was very worth it. It is a beautiful place to celebrate and we look forward to the high quality and exquisite flavors of the food. They know how to highlight the pro's as well as provide me the BEST ribeye ever. Service is excellent - knowledgeable and they know how to quickly build rapport and either engage or let you be - depending on your desires. Don't miss this experience!

Outstanding food and service. I love that it is not a chain and the owner checks on each customer. The lobster tempura app is to die for. I love the filet mignon with any sides!!

I was kind of disappointed with the way our steaks were prepared. We asked for medium well. Ours was butterfly and well done. We went there for our 21 year anniversary .

My dining experience at D.C. Prime Steakhouse was fantastic. The food was excellent and my experience
was very memorable. The staff is very engaging. So. if you are visiting the Washington, D.C./Northern Virginia area, you MUST include D.C. Prime for your dining experience. I know that D.C. Prime Steakhouse is the number one restaurant in Loudoun County Virginia. I will visit this restaurant again in the near future.

The service was great, from the servers all to way to the hostess who greeted us at the door. First thing I noticed was how clean and serene the place felt. Everything look aesthetically pleasing. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful with selecting our meal. Food was amazing, no complaints there. The fish I ordered was delicate and extremely tender. Everything came out hot so I knew it was fresh. Overall, it was a wonderful experience

DC Prime lived up to our expectation. We've been there a number of times and it is a great high end restaurant. The food, service and atmosphere are wonderful. Once again John was our server and he is terrific. We would strongly recommend DC Prime.

As much money I spent, the food should have been amazing. It was just ok. I had went to another steak house close by and it was amazing the steak was like butter. No comparison. So I’m a little disappointed. The waiter was super slow and no one was in the restaurant so I’m not sure what was happening. But he was super sweet. Place is clean everyone was friendly. I would not recommend them or go back.

Food & service was exceptional but it was so hot inside that my wife & I thought we were going to pass out towards the end of our meal. It actually ruined our anniversary dinner, unfortunately.

Everything was great with the exception of the steaks. Most of our table ordered the aged ribeye...it was very disappointing. It tasted like I was eating unflavored meat.

Service was outstanding! Appetizers were outstanding.
