    The 'Charlie Smith' Shellfish Bouquet is a great way to start your meal, it features chilled lobster and colossal lump crab meat, jumbo shrimp, iced oysters and littleneck clams.

    During lunch and dinner, carts bearing prime steaks, including dry-aged sirloins and bone-in ribeyes, criss-cross the floor of this downtown den of primal pleasure. Read more

    Their Filet Mignon is one of the best you'll ever taste anywhere in the country; period! Seriously. Taste it and you'll agree. Best steak EVER!

    Terrible choice for DC Restaurant Week. Poorly prepared burger and a bland stale tasting chocolate cake.

    The 28-day dry-aging process is done on-site. In-house butchers then cut each piece of prime to maximize the flavor and tenderness. Read more

    Sit in the bar if you are looking for the S&M menu in a less stuffy environment. Ask for a sample fresh baked cookie upon your departure (kept near the hostess desk next to the front door).

    There's an unadvertised "3-course, all you care to drink, wine dinner" at Smith & Wollensky every night of week. Ask your server about it.
