The steaks have gone down hill. My steak was so tough I asked for another knife because I thought my knife was dull. Not worth it anymore.

Bourbon is a nice experience for a high-end restaurant. The ambience is deep and rich and makes for a pleasurable environment. The food is very good, but not outstanding. They serve three kinds of french fries with dips before the meal, which isn't the healthiest thing -but they were really good! The Ahi Tartare appetizer was excellent and the potato-crusted Halibut was good, but could have used more flavoring.

1. No service. Sat for 20 mins. Had to waive to get someone’s attention even that person kept walking back and forth pass the table like 5 times.

2. $70 steak - burnt, over-cooked and overly salty. Had to return and ordered sth else.

3. Had serious problems with staffing and QC for food.

4. Quality of food and price. Not worth it at all.

We attended the Pride brunch at Four Seasons and had a blast! The event was well organized and the staff were amazing! We never had empty glasses on our bottomless rose. The food was also outstanding! It is not inexpensive but is well worth it for a special occasion.

This is the gold standard for dinning in the DMV. From the valet to the check in at the host stand the service is impeccable. The food is phenomenal and second to none. The cocktails are simply irresistible. Highly recommend Bourbon Steak to everyone who enjoys superb service and quality dining.

We were so happy to be back in one of our favorite spots! The entire team was on their A game, bringing so much to the celebration at hand. Dinner was a treat. We started with the tuna and shrimp. Enjoyed cocktails (trust me- Hairy Chest was the find of the night) and laughed our way though our perfectly prepared main course.

Took my husband, a bourbon afficionado, here for his birthday. Cocktails were divine. Service was absolutely excellent. We had a table by the big window overlooking the canal which was really nice. Sides, salad, and bread were absolutely delicious - we both ordered steaks (wagyu filet and angus filet) which I though the cuts were just ok and overpriced. Overall we had a great evening and enjoyed ourselves.

Everyone was lovely and the food was exceptional. We enjoyed the halibut, hanger steak, brussels sprouts, mac & cheese, and smore's dessert. The hostess, Ibtesam, was an absolute pleasure to meet. And our waiter, Mouz, provided the best service and recommendations. Definitely a great place to enjoy dinner while knowing that everything will be taken care of by the staff and kitchen.
