#DC Restaurant Week available all month via The Daily Meal
Coming off the heels of holiday feasting and gift-giving mayhem, January is often a month of reflection. Serious, contemplative types examine their lives and resolve to do better in the coming year. Foodies, on the other hand, tend to resolve to dine out more often, eat better, and make other sorts of gustatory resolutions. If you fall into the latter category, this week’s menu report has a variety of options to consider adding to your food resol...

Love this place! Their ribeye dry aged steak is out of this world good. We also liked the Mac and cheese. The service was always outstanding when we've gone there for dinner. They brought my husband a huge piece of cake for his birthday which was enough for all eight of us.

My party of four visited this location on a early Saturday evening. The decor is very comfortable, old-style steakhouse. Nothing fancy. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about the types of meat and how they were prepared. Each of us had different meals and all were outstanding! Somehow, we even managed to save room for deserts. Again, all of us were very impressed. If you are looking for a great dining experience from beginning to end, this is your place! We will be returning soon.

***ONLY A REVIEW OF HAPPY HOUR*** TL;DR: Smith & Wollensky offers great food, lots of it, for little money. I love a good happy hour. I had never been to S&W but was excited to try out its happy hour after experiencing great ones at comparable steakhouses. It did not disappoint. The rib eye carpacio is almost too much food. It comes deliciously seasoned and topped with cheese. Get it. The sliders melted in my mouth; the only shortcoming was that we wished we had ordered more. Beer is cheap ($5) and I think wine was about $9/glass. The misto - fried shrimp and calamari - was surprisingly sub-par. I almost knocked this down a star because our food took about 30min to come out, and our flat breads never made it to the table. Though, the sheer quantity and quality of food more than made up for it. Check it out!

Disappointed, should have waited for The Prime Rib to open. Not worth the money $200 lunch for two. Wasted calories and money. Filet and ribeye were low quality cuts. The side order was served in a small cooking pan place on the table (not cute). Waitor was ghetto and had an attitude with other guest, just because she asked for fresh garlic.

I have always loved Smith and Wollensky and have visited the chain in many cities. This place however is in trouble. It starts with the Maitre D. who calls everyone, man and woman "darling" and provides aggressive and overly familiar commentary on the way to the table. It took over 30 minutes to get a glass of wine. Two bottles offered on the wine list, one on the recommended page, turned out not to be unavailable. Waiters came and went but the service was flat out lousy. The steak, when it finally arrived was mediocre and overcooked and mediocre and after the meal two of our party felt physically ill. The best thing about the place is the bread, which is delicious. Would avoid this place like the plague. I doubt it will be around much longer.

Despite the reputation for a high-priced power lunch and expense account dinner restaurant, Smith and Wollensky can be enjoyed for a fraction of the normal price if you go during happy hour. A mountain for proscuitto with huge chunks of freshly shaved parmesan and an ample serving of arugula for only $8. The calamari was fair at best and should be avoided. Half off wines and beers, with hearty sliders that come 3 (surprisingly large portions) to a plate for $7. You won't get the filet for which this place is famous but you can enjoy the refined ambiance and attentive service for a fraction of the normal price.

After a long afternoon walking around DC, we ended up here. We got the porterhouse for two. Rarely do I enjoy steak houses (I would rather pick up a great cut and cook it myself), this steak was unbelievable. With the sides we had more than enough AMAZing food. I would say this is my favorite steakhouse of the area.

We were visiting DC during the holidays and wanted to have Christmas dinner at a nice restaurant. The reviews for Smith and Wollensky were great so we made a reservation. I understand it was Christmas, the restaurant was busy and our server was clearly exhausted. But it still took about 20 minutes for her to take our drink orders and perhaps another 20 to bring them. The food didn't arrive until we'd been there for nearly 2 hours. The food was far overpriced for the quality. Out of 8 diners, there was ONE good dinner and it was the long bone ribeye. The stuffed jumbo shrimp were room temperature and tough. They brought split pea soup instead of broccoli and cheese, the other ribeye was tough, and out of the filet trio, only one filet was edible. The bread and the truffled macaroni and cheese were good. But overall, this was the most expensive terrible dinner I've ever had. I guess my expectations were just set too high. We won't be back.
