    My guy is a huge steak lover and so for his birthday, I wanted to take him somewhere that specializes and delivers. So we went to BLT Steak and it was one of the best experiences we have ever had, he was a happy man, went home with a full belly and smile on his face. BLT Steak was a great experience, we will go again. Doug, our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive, he was amazing!!!

    Seafood platter to start. The ceviche and sauces were excellent. I had the Wagyu Skirt Steak which may be my new favorite steak. Medium Rare with a perfectly crispy shell, sliced just right. With creamed spinach and brussel sprouts. The gruyere popovers, duck pate and chocolate finisher were free and tasty.

    Took some friends here that were visiting from Chicago. We just moved to the area in May and found this on a list of the 25 best restaurants in Charlotte. After eating there, it should probably be the Top 5 restaurants in Charlotte. Food was amazing. The Dover Sole was out of this world good. Even our friends, who aren't big fish eaters, said it was probably the best piece of fish they have ever had. My one negative comment was the amount of food pre-dinner. We all ordered salads (~$12 a piece) and then they hit us with a bread sample and popovers. A nice touch and delicious, don't get me wrong, but a ton of pre-meal food. Would've appreciated the waiter giving us a heads up that maybe $50 of salads might be a bit much.

    Typically entertain clients for work and have been to many upscale venues around Charlotte; not too impressed with BLT. Based on the price, you would have expected more but it fell fairly flat in the food department however the location is great. There are many other choices in the surrounding area that delivers more. Regardless of price, the food was okay at best...

    Nice evening, delicious chicken liver pate and bread provided by chef during drinks. Appetizer of bacon with chimichurri sauce was delicious. Ordered the bone in ribeye and found the flavor to be excellent, but it was not really hot when served so it turned cold fairly quickly. Steak was served on a cast iron plate but it didn't really keep it warm. Service was quite good and attentive.

    I made reservations for my husband's birthday. The service was great and the food superb! Surprised about the amount of food. Couldn't finish it all. The restaurant was noisy & seating tight. We were seated in a corner booth, which was great because we didn't have to squeeze by anyone as we observed others doing. BLT, overall is a great find.

    My wife and I dined before attending a play. Wonderful food and service. Jalapeno mashed potatoes were excellent. Steak was among the best I have eaten. Pecan bourbon torte with the Dubliner irish coffee was the perfect end to a wonderful dinner. When we go back to Charlotte, we will certainly return.

    Food was amazing. Wedge salad came with too much dressing for me (will probably ask for it on the side next time), jalapeño mashed potatoes, shrimp cocktail, and brussel sprouts--all side items--were all we needed for a quick meal before the show. Waiter understood our time constraints, food arrived quickly, and he even escorted us to the correct exit for easy access to the performing arts center. Great experience!

    My meal was great. My husband later complained that his steak was cold when it came to the table. We were with his work colleagues so he didn't say anything. The sides were good too, but hardly 'family style' portions. It'd be more accurate to say they are sized for two people each.

    Our service was excellent -- just attentive enough without being too attentive, and content to let us have a leisurely meal. We followed several recommendations from our server, and all were excellent. Particularly notable were the bacon appetizer and beet salad. The bone-in ribeye was excellent. We were given a variety of sauces to try with it, but it really didn't need any help. I thought the tables were a little too close together. Between courses and during coffee, when I was pushed just slightly back from the table and had my legs crossed, I kept having to adjust as servers for other tables tried to go by. A minor thing, I know, but still on my mind after the meal. Bottom line, tho: I'd go back for the bacon, the steak and the bread.

    I heard about this restaurant through a friend and decided to give it a shot, very happy with this choice. We had the filet mignon, sprouts, and mashed potatoes which were all fantastic. Didn't even need a knife for the steak! The real gem, however, was the peanut butter mousse dessert, OMG it was amazing. This will definitely be my go-to place for future visits to Charlotte.

    We spent the night at The Ritz Carlton to celebrate our one year anniversary and decided to head downstairs to dinner. The staff could not have been more amazing. We'd been here before, but once we mentioned we wanted to keep the cork for our anniversary, the treatment was kicked up a notch. The staff is incredibly accommodating and very well educated from the wine to the food. I highly recommend getting the different sauces for your steak & ordering the jalapeño mashers - they're not hot, but do have a nice tasteful kick. If the menu is pricey wait until restaurant week to visit - but make reservations as soon as announced because they will be full.

    We went to BLT Steak to celebrate my husband's birthday. The hostess was very accommodating when I requested that one of my husband's favorite cupcakes from Bar Cocoa (a dessert bar inside the hotel) be brought out after dinner. They purchased the cupcake for me, added a lit candle and an edible chocolate "Happy Birthday" banner to the presentation. I really appreciated their attention to detail. Our meal was elegantly presented and exceptionally delicious. BLT Steak is one our our favorite restaurants with good reason. We will definitely return again soon.

    if u r uptown for a show, an event or whatever BLT needs to be where you dine. its friendly, but upscale with -out of this world- service. The wine list has a nice range to it and the food (the whole menu) is IMO the best in Charlotte. The ambiance is smooth and the whole layout is easy on the eyes. Its not a fru-fru place where avg guys feel uncomfortable, but its definitely a special place to take a special person that sends a special message.
