The Prime Rib or The Palm in DC would be your best bet for steakhouses.
Not sure the view is what you want, so you may have to look outside steakhouses for a restaurant with a view!

Ruth's Chris in Crystal City, VA, and you may want to check out J&G Steakhouse in DC proper. I personally like Chart House in Old Town Alexandria if you can get a table with a nice view. Not the best place for steak, but some nice views right on the river. There may be options across Old Town Alexandria via water taxi on National Harbor or across the Woodrow Wilson bridge.

Take my advice with a grain of salt though....

DC has several great steakhouses. Most hardly have windows, much less a great view. The Palm and The Prime Rib are both very good. I personally like Bobby Van's (the main one on 15th Street, I haven't been to the "Grill"). Morton's is another option and it does have views over K street.

My suggestion is that you pick a steakhouse for the steaks and go to a separate place with a view for cocktails. The old Hotel Washington was always a popular spot for views of the White House and the Mall. It is especially nice if you can time it to watch the lights come on at the monuments. I haven't been to the Hotel Washington since it changed hands and became the "W" Hotel. I gather it is more upscale now, but the views haven't changed. The "W" would be pretty close to most of the downtown steakhouses.

If you want a waterview, the only steakhouse options that I know of would be Bond 45 or Old Hickory, both at National Harbor. I have not eaten at either. The water taxi from Old Town is a pleasant way to get there.
