TAILORED TO SUIT ANY OCCASION

Over our 25+ years as a favorite steak house in the D.C. area, our Crystal City restaurant has earned a reputation for our sizzling steaks, exceptional service and spectacular 11th-story view. Now richly remodeled and elegantly redesigned, our Arlington, VA, steak house has been expertly tailored to elevate any occasion.

A regal feel with a relaxed welcome

A pair of larger-than-life oil paintings of military figures with a whimsical twist promise an evening to remember from the moment you walk through our door. Our vibrant bar, with its expanded seating and communal table, invites guests to linger longer and take in one of the best views of the D.C. skyline, Capitol Building and the harbor. Elegant light fixtures throughout the dining area give a playful nod to the runway lights outside our windows. Design details masterfully brought together to create a refreshingly modern take on the traditional steak house experience.

All with that signature sizzle

While our USDA Prime steaks, bone-in cuts and their signature sizzle have kept us at the top of the list of best steak houses in the D.C. area, you’ll also find our popular three-course seasonal menu, fresh seafood, scratch-made sides and decadent desserts, along with handcrafted cocktails and an award-winning wine list. All with the sort of exceptional service that would make our founder, Ruth Fertel, proud.
