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.

Celebrated my son’s 23 birthday and it was above and beyond expectations. There were 6 of us and the service was impeccable. Food was amazing bone in NY strip had unbelievable flavor. Sides are are easily shared between 2-4 people. Cream corn very flavorful. Price was extremely reasonable for what we had. Definitely will be back

What an amazing experience from start to finish. My husband and I are fairly new to the area. We moved from Atlanta, which is known for incredible food, and have had a hard time finding great restaurants in Loudoun County. This place is by far the best we have had found.

We chose D.C. Prime to celebrate our anniversary. To begin the owner Rick greeted us at the door, we were seated promptly and quickly and engaged We by the most incredible waiter, Stew. I could go on and on about the superior customer service and the beautiful atmosphere but the food was even better. This is a fantastic place and we highly recommend it. The owner and staff went above and beyond to make our experience special!

We had a very nice time with 2 small exceptions. They forgot to bring out the side dish until we reminded them, and forgot to give us the doggie bag after we requested it. Neither were major issues rather minor annoyance. Overall a good experience and will go back again. The steak and porkchop were excellent.

Appetizers (Lobster balls & crab cake) were great and main dishes were outstanding, hot & delicious. Our waiter Wayne was great! The way he explained each dish had your mouth watering even before the dishes arrived; he was attentive, polite, accommodating, friendly! We ordered dessert to go since the appetizers & meal (which I took some home); but oh my, that chocolate cake was yummy! (such a huge serving I made 3 attempts before I could eat it all) We went there on a Thursday evening with a 5:30pm reservation, so not many people there at all. We tried this place because I had a gift card, but we definitely plan to go back again. It is a bit pricey but a good steak place is typically pricey and this place was worth it.

It took about 15 minutes for our server to realize we were seated. Once we were discovered, the owner came over and apologized and made it right. After that, everything was great. The only complaint is that with high ceilings, the room is very loud and it's hard to hear each other speak.

Food was generally very good, but in August, a $14 tomato and mozzarella salad should have real tomatoes, not tasteless supermarket tomatoes. The service was excellent and the cocktails were quite good. However, when the restaurant is two thirds empty and we requested a quiet table or booth, don't seat us at a table right next to the bar beneath a very loud customer when there are several better options. Would not spend the money to go here again.

Service means everything. We have eaten here often with fabulous service and attention and great food. This weekend we sat right next to the swinging door back to the kitchen and it was a disaster. People swinging the door and running into each other. Our waiter was horribly slow, couldn’t help us pick a wine, had difficulty opening the bottle and never came back to pour the wine. Our ahared appetizers showed up before our plates did. It seemed to be an issue even to get our water filled.

Bottom line: great food, and the experience can be equally great. Poor wait staff make it a horrible dining experience.

This restaurant was absolutely the best!!! They had great food and the most beautiful part of our experience was how they put us in a private room for the size of our party. This allowed us to enjoy with each other without being distracted by everything around us. Our server was very attentive and ensured that we were well served and everything was progressing smoothly. We didn’t have to wait to get our food. I even thought that our choice of appetizers would drag the evening and have us waiting forever but I was amazed at how quickly it came out and we loved the selection given. We will dine there over and over again!!!

Celebrated our son’s birthday. What a wonderful special occasion restaurant! It is pricey, but they make it worthwhile. We had excellent service! They don’t have a children’s menu, but the server was a great help in pointing out the kid-friendly items. He even made a spectacular-looking chocolate milk for our granddaughter! He was so very accommodating! The steak melted in your mouth! The flavor was amazing! Sides are definitely big enough to share. Desserts didn’t disappoint either! All around we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend it!

Not worth the money. $267 for 3 people. No booze, no dessert. 1 shared app, steaks and sides. Maybe in NYC, but not Ashburn.

Very good experience-there was one small problem with our order-we had gotten one of the last type of steak and it went to the wrong table, but they gave us a healthy discount without us even complaining. Very good service and the food was great, but expect to pay a bit.

Normally DC Prime is our favorite place to have a steak, but not last Saturday. In all fairness, the restaurant was celebrating its 3 year anniversary and had a great special in place, but it did not live up to our expectations. We will give it try again, because we want to believe this was just an off night.

The service was the best I've ever had, however when the cheapest entrée is $50, dinner can get very pricey, especially when you pay extra for the sides. Having said that, thefgood was awesome.

Food here never disappoints, always an amazing experience. We had the seafood tower which everything on it was delicious. We tried one of the specials which was the Wagyu Beef and Oh my God was it melt in your mouth amazing. Best six ounces I’ve ever had. Thank you Rocky for your great service, attentive and for the great recommendations!

The service is fantastic as is the food. A bit pricey, but for an establishment that advertises as an “upscale” steakhouse I expected inflated costs. If you don’t mind paying the extra for fantastic service and ambiance, the food is worth it and we’ll be back.
