    FIRST TIME DINING AT BLT PRIME WAS TERRIFIC . THE STEAKS (FILET MIGNON AND KANSAS CITY STRIP) WE HAD WERE EXCELLENT QUALITY AND FLAVOR AND WERE COOKED PERFECTLY TO OUR TASTE. APPETIZERS, SIDE DISH AND DESSERT AUGMENTED A TERRIFIC DINNER. SERVICE WAS ATTENTIVE, FRIENDLY, AND PROFESSIONAL. BLT PRIME HAS BECOME OUR NUMBER 1 CHOICE FOR A STEAK DINNER.

    Dined on 10/22/2014
    This is the place where we enjoyed our last evening in NY, after getting married in the morning, pictures in the afternoon, this was the perfect place to unwind, enjoy a great Porterhouse for 2, chicken for our son, very nice side dishes, a beautiful Pinot Noir, amazing ice wine and a so so sprakling rosé. The service was superb and we also received a very nice dessert with 'congratulations' written in chocolate. The Porterhouse was prepared to perfection and the very busy Wednesday evening buzz gave a nice ambiance. We loved it!

    Grilled bacon appetizer - what more do you need? That said I got the bone-in strip, truffled mashed potatoes, creamed spinach - typical ny steakhouse fare all done exceptionally well. And, oh yeah ... mini doughnuts for dessert! (Cinnamon sugar, served w/ coffee ice cream & chocolate sauce) Limited beer selection, but had a great Belgian ale. Staff was highly attentive. Would definitely recommend this place for a great meal, especially if you want to avoid the attitude of some of NY's "top" steakhouses.

    Dined on 10/17/2014
    I took my friend to this restaurant for her birthday. When I told to the waiter that It was her birthday, they said they would write her name on our desert plate and decorate it pretty. Finally we ordered a carrot cake and it was decorated as we were told. The food and service was good. I had lobster salad, grilled shrimp with two glasses of wine, and my friend ordered American kobe and one glass of martini. The total was about $180. It was satisfying dinner. However, I wouldn't go often because it is a bit pricy. I would recommend this place to the meat lovers for special occasions.

    I love the BLT restaurants and always look forward to going. The food is always excellent and those popovers are amazing. I'm on a low carb diet, but I had no choice once the popovers arrived. The grilled bacon was a perfect starter, which I had with a Laphroiag 10 whiskey. (A match made in culinary heaven.) Then a strip steak (but EVERYTHING there is good) and some hen-of-the-woods mushrooms to round out the dinner. I skipped dessert but I'm sure it's good as well. I've never left a BLT restaurant hungry, or anything less than happy.

    With so many steak restaurants we weren't sure this would stand out. It was exceptional -- food, service, and atmosphere. We sat upstairs which was key, particularly because of the higher noise level in the downstairs room. The Kansas City Steak was delicious and the Dover Sole was cooked perfectly -- huge portion. The signature bread -- OMG -- death by popovers. Our waiter (Zac) was also key to an amazing experience. He was warm and friendly but extremely professional and so helpful in making our food choices.

    From the appetizers, salads and entrees our meal was one of the best. The service was superb. My steak was cooked to perfect and was so tender. The baby spinach salad was flawless! Don't fill up on the popover because you can do this quickly.

    Had been to a BLT restaurant in White Plains and was a bit disappointed so was so thoroughly pleased with BLT Prime. Could have made a meal out of the chicken liver pate and popovers! Great spinach salad which could have been a meal itself. Loved the sides of creamy corn and also potato skins. Ordered a bit too much so have yummy leftovers for dinner tonight. Great evening.

    It was my husband birthday and I loved they gave special servise before, but they totally forgot this year even I asked do it again when I made a reservation. They were so annoying to ask about a dessert. I came to ask so many times while we are talking for very important things. There are open table around us and I don't know why they tried to push us so much? Anyway I thought they do something special for our dessert for the birthday like as before, and I ordered it,,, but nothing!! And we were still eating, they came to ask we were done or not so many times!!! We were talking and enjoying a dessert but they were like "not talking and eat all first". Very bad mood for the birthday! Very bad!!!

    Tomahawk ribeye special was outstanding. @$96 a bit pricey, but 32oz was enough for two, and the words "bone marrow chimichurri" closed the deal. The Stuffed mushroom side was very good, but the potato au gratin was so good that my tiny healthnut gf almost housed the whole thing before I had a bite. Crab cake app was very tasty w/lots of crab, & the grilled bacon - well, it was grilled bacon so self-explanatory. This was a really good meal. The cheese popovers they bring are incredibly flakey, buttery & delicious and I was pleasantly surprised by a little chicken liver pate and crostini they brought out as well...nice touches. The captain upstairs Jason did a great job. Very likable & he & the staff were on point. Overall a great meal.

    Fantastic. Yeah it costs a few bills but just awesome. Took family visitors from out of state here and they were blown away; a real treat. Food, general atmosphere all perfect. Choose upstairs for a quieter dining experience but seems the help isn't as on top of things as when I've dined downstairs, so took a star off for that. Still great though!

    The porterhouse was so tender it seemed to melt in your mouth. The last time I had a steak like this was many years ago when I went to Peter Luger's. The complimentary popovers and the side orders, Jersey corn and mashed potatoes, were also delicious. The service was very good too. I look forward to going back to BLT Prime.

    Steak was pretty good, not great. They offer a nice variety of sauces. That's the 1st clue. A good steak wouldn't need any. Also ordered a broiled lobster, was yuk. I never had a lobster so soft and tasteless. Shrimp and crab cake appetizers were the best and the much lauded puff pastry was lovely. Spinach and asparagus sides were good. Keen's, Benjamin's and Wolfgang's all provide much better Steak, which is mainly the point.

    You do pretty much get what you pay for here. The food was fantastic and the service is outstanding. It's pretty much what you would expect if you know anything about Ramsey's restaurants. The only complaint I have is about the seating arrangements. They put the tables so close together that you have literally have to move a table to get in and out. That also puts the next person right into your conversation. But this is a small complaint. Would still give this place an A rating.

    I have often eaten at the 57th Street location so this was my first venture to Flatiron. I was not disappointed. The decor was perfect. The martini was dry as the Sahara. The oysters were fresh and not briny. The steak was juicy, flavorful and was perfectly accompanied when paired with a baked potato and creamed spinach. All in all, it was perfect.

    I had checked out the menu on line as well as having seen a news segment on the Newest BLT Prime in Miami and had been salivating ever since. If I had dared, I would have ordered 3 appetizers and 4 sides and maybe skipped the steak But I didn't and the Steak was equally amazing! A delightful evening Next time I'll fast for two days and maybe even get to try the dessert OMG... The Pop overs!! How can Inot mention them, complete with the instruction to make them... Which I will! Thank you, thank you, thank you for a wonderful meal and foodie overload!

    Took my boyfriend here for his birthday - our first time here. He loves steak so we were excited to try it. The location is beautiful and spacious. You do not feel cramped at all. The service is top notch. Everyone is exceptionally knowledgeable, even with the wine where they were very respectful about making sure you stayed in the dollar range you wanted to and didn't push expensive wines on you. Two words - pop overs!!! As for everything else we ordered - OUTSTANDING!!! Most importantly, they were great about my food allergies. I suffer from a tremendous amount of food allergies and everyone worked with me so I was safe and still had an incredible dining experience. Can't wait to go back! Did I mention the popovers?

    Doesn't matter what you order - it's all about the popovers--huge, warm, bread muffins, served to you before you order with butter and a shaker of salt. We could have had just the popovers and a drink and would have been very satisfied - yummmmm!! Entrees were good, salads were ordinary. But those popovers..........

    Ambience was a problem. They have a dimly-lit room (so it seems to be aimed at a romantic atmosphere), but the music was so loud that patrons had to yell to be heard, which increased the sound level to unbearable levels. It was so dark, we used iPhone flashlight to see the menu. Food was ok, but too expensive for steaks. Service was poor, the waiter - ok, but other wait staff asked "Are you still working on that" (Not expected at an "upscale" restaurant) Also got the feeling that they wanted us out ASAP. Wine list was horribly expensive. We've eaten at 3* restaurants in France (Michelin guide) with more reasonable wine lists, and probably better. Much improvement to be made. Didn't have dessert, but prices were reasonable.

    Had dinner with my kids and the 3 of us had a thoroughly awesome meal. Bacon; oysters; Porterhouse for 2; strip steak; creamed spinach; onion rings; fries and of course dessert and of course cocktails. I have eaten at many of the top steakhouses and the Porterhouse here was off the hook tasty and cooked to perfection and seemed to be thicker than I have had before. The bacon was superb as were the desserts. I did not find the food over salted as others have noted. Recommend this restaurant highly.
