A lifelong dream of owners Rick Crowe and Brad Weideman, 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.

    Menu has been expanded so there are more choices. Service as always is outstanding. Food overall is very good though I would say it is a notch below what we have received in the past. We had calamari which was rather chewy, the ribeye had an awful lot of fat on it though it was very tender and tasty. One of our orders was for rib eye and we received NY strip instead which we kept and it was very good. So overall , despite some of the shortcomings this is still a good steak restaurant and we recommend it.

    It was our first time at DC Prime and it won’t be our last! Brian, our server, was attentive and made outstanding menu suggestions, taking excellent care of us throughout the night. The lobster bites were delicious and our steaks were seriously the best we’ve ever had!! Having enjoyed some of the top steakhouses across the country DC Prime is hands down one of the best! Looking forward to our next visit!

    We have been frequent diners at DC Prime for years, but we have noticed a decline in our last two visits. Our dinner tonight was terrible. We had a reservation at 8:30 whixh we had to wait to be seated for. Then we had a waitress who came to take our drinks but then disappeared for over 30 minutes. Finally another waiter took pity on us and took our order. Once our order arrived one of the steaks we ordered the porterhouse was undercooked but we had no one to help us. We finally had someone stop by and get more drinks but it took over 20 Minutes to get a beer and a glass of champagne. Our meal was not good, was significantly over priced for the lack of ambiance and service.This has turned into more of a bar and less of a swanky steakhouse. Very disappointed and will not return.

    I've been to DC Prime once before, and the service was impeccable, but I can say this time was below par. I was expecting superior service, but I was met with much disappointment. Our server, Orlando, was not engaging, nor was he attentive. I watched how he treated his other tables compared to how he treated ours. I had to ask for refills for drinks, and he walked past the table at a min of 5 times before stopping to see if we were straight. He never did that to his other tables. Every time he walked past them, he asked if there was anything they needed. Also, it took over 1.5 hours to get our food, and he blamed it on being busy, but other tables that came in afterward received their food right away. I'm not sure what we did to deserve the treatment, but it definitely tuned me away.

    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!

    Wow! Outstanding experience! Jessica and Isabella are amazing servers and keep us coming back! The bartenders are probably the best in Ashburn ! The service is amazing and consistent. Probably had the best bone-in ribeye I’ve had in my life! My new fav restaurant ! They also treated my 6 year old like a princess and gave her so much attention on Valentine’s Day! It was the sweetest.

    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!
