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.

Excellent meal. The steaks just keep us coming back. Pittsburgh crust, rare interior. Not many restaurants can match it. A jewel for Northern Virginia.

We had oysters on the half shell, pork belly, and calamari as appetizers, they were all outstanding! Tomahawk Ribeye for the main was amazing! Sides were good but nothing memorable. Drinks were well poured and enjoyable. Service was excellent and personable. We will definitely return.

We had no idea this place existed but ate so happy we discovered DC Prime Steakhouse. The steaks were delicious and cooked perfectly. The sides were big enough for 6 people to share and the deserts were delicious and very large. We will definitely be going back here.

Saturday night I took my husband out for date night to a great restaurant in Ashburn, VA, name DC Prime Steakhouse. We had the best time at dinner. The food was "A+. Everything from service to the eating was outstanding to me and my husband. The Redskins sent me an email about the restaurant. That is the best touchdown that Redskins scored for me. I will go back to the restaurant again. Their felt bad that we take our silver and put it into hot water. I always do that in any restaurant I go too. Nothing personal to the restaurant.

Another great meal at DC Prime. The food and service were both terrific. We had shrimp cocktail, casaer salad, steak, asparagus and chocolate cake. John was our server. He is warm, personable and very professional. We can't wait to return to DC Prime.

Delicious! The mains are always perfection. Feel like the sides are just meh and don't live up to the main course. But the cheescake made up for any lackluster potato side! Yum!

The service is top notch. We felt like VIPs the entire time and they made my little birthday boy feel like a king. Everything was presented beautifully and the steaks were perfect. The server gave us a great explanation of the cooking process and he was clearly the best at what he does. When my husband asked for a Pinot, the server knew exactly what brand to bring (it was absolutely delicious). The ambiance is nice and sceney but not over the top. Seems like it should be located in an urban spot, rather than off a suburban highway. It’s what you’d expect from any steak house, as far as the menu and decor, but the food was absolutely on the mark and the server made the experience extra special! I will definitely go back.

The food was exceptionally good and the price was appropriate for what we expected. The service was somewhat slow, but I suspect the reasoning was that we were there the Sunday after Valentine's Day, celebrating a late holiday (as were many others). We will be back again.

Definitely a special occasion place (my birthday), but worth it. I now understand what they mean when they call a steak "buttery". Food was spectacular, service was good, and ambiance was "steakhouse chic"

Our experience was great from the moment we walked in . We were greeted quickly and sat immediately with our reservation. Our server was very attentive and assured we always had what we needed, and the steaks were cooked perfectly. I would recommend this for others looking for a little higher end dinner. Bonus it is a mile from home.

We waited an hour and a half from ordering for a mediocre steak and a cold baked potato. The mac and cheese was good, and my husband loved the crab cake he added on. Overall it wasn’t worth the money. Had such high hopes and maybe it was an off night.

We have eaten here before and had had a great experience. My husband called it his new favorite place. As his birthday is near Valentines Day, I booked well in advance and was excited to take him back. As Valentine’s Day was a Friday, that was the night we went. We were expecting a crowd, as the last time it had been very crowded, but it wasn’t too bad. I must say though we left very disappointed. This was the first time the food was not up to expectations. My husband is a steak guy, loves to grill, and likes his steak medium rare. His steak was rare. Now we are not the type of people who say medium rare and then complain when the meat is pink. But this was very rare and had to be returned. The oysters Rockefeller had been fantastic last time and were barely edible.

For a Valentine’s day dinner, the seating was way to close to two other couples, when there was plenty of other free tables. It made for awkward conversation with my wife and the other couples felt the same. We were crammed into the glass patio, which was about 15 degrees colder than the restaurant, so the overall comfort was not great. I don’t believe we will go back.

Outstanding food served with a high degree of personal service. A perfect choice for special occasions and impressing guests. It's always tempting to go with a perfectly cooked steak, but don't ignore the daily specials! They are always wonderful.

Service was outstanding, apps were very good, steaks were disappointing. 16oz ribeye was ordered medium and came without any red in center, overcooked. KC bone-in strip was ordered rare, Oscar Style. Steak was good but there was a “fish” taste to the crab meat. We did order the jumbo lump crab appetizer and that was excellent. The apps and sides were 5-star, the 3-star on the food was based on main course. Had they been $20 steaks, no issues, but when you are at a “high end” steak house ($310 not including tip for party of 2) you expect to walk out feeling good about the money spent. The 1-star on value was based on the food experience not the amount of the bill.
