Multiple people approached me at our engagement party & said the food we served was THE BEST they had EVER had at an event!! Charlie Palmer Steak is known to have amazing food but their catering was just as extraordinary! It was delicious and I wish I could go back in time and eat more! I cannot say enough about how high quality the food was and working with the Charlie Palmer team was awesome! They let me think outside the box and create a unique menu with food Chris and I love! See the photos I posted for some of the AMAZING hors d’oeurves, mains, & desserts we served. Also, their bar is FAB!

Our experience at Charlie Palmer for our daughters wedding was exceptional. Many guests commented on the delicious food, excellent service and beautiful setting. Tracy our event manager was friendly and professional. I highly recommend
this venue. We had 115 guests and there was ample room for dancing. The guests loved being so close to the Capitol. We wanted a wedding with real DC flavor and the location and service provided just that. The restaurant was a beautiful setting!

I chose Charlie Palmer for my rehearsal dinner and out-of-town-guest cocktail party and couldn't have picked a more perfect venue. Tracy was so wonderful to work with; she was extremely responsive (I was shocked about how quickly she responded to several of my emails) and even allowed us to come in to taste some of the house wines. The rehearsal dinner was fantastic! We loved the beef filet and sides, and the service was perfect. We transitioned to a cocktail party in the room next door, which was also perfect. The room was fantastic, and our guests had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend Tracy Kinnahan and Charlie Palmer DC for anyone looking for an outstanding venue for a special occasion. We cannot wait to go back!
