A word from BLT Steak DC
BLT Steak's design integrates select traditional elements of the French "Bistro" and an American "Steakhouse". A lighter environment has been created that is enhanced by the richness of Macassar Ebony tables and matching suede. A 25-foot bar greets diners with an excellent array of libations for pre- or post- dining pleasure including an oyster and shellfish raw bar.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Great food (salute to exec. chef Jeremy Shelton), great service!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The wife and I came here for our 1 year wedding anniversary and it was a great experience. The wife has been to the one in Miami and loved the popovers. We knew that was going to be filling so we skipped the appetizer. We had the filet steak and also the miso tuna, which was prepared perfectly. For our desert, we were debating between the chocolate mouse and peanut butter chocolate cake. The manager recommended the peanut butter one so we went with that and it was amazing. Since it was anniversary he also gave us the chocolate mouse and some other desert for free in complimentary champagne. Overall, great food and service and will definitely be back!"

  • "There may only be to options for burgers at BLT, but both are worth the asking price. Try the grilled bacon and of course enjoy the popovers."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The most amazing popovers, baked with gruyere cheese, are served as the bread at the beginning of the meal. Oysters fresh. Tasty spinach salad, huge portion, a little on the dry side, but tasty. Side items all incredible. The baked potato skins were particularly remarkable, crunchy, cheesy, bacony, the best ever, anywhere. But the steak! A huge filet (14 ozs.), prepared medium rare plus, was juicy but absolutely tough, stringy, hard to chew, and definitely did not taste like a prime cut. Very surprising and unsettling. The sundae malt for dessert was delightful and light, with crunchy malted chunks mixed in with the ice cream. Service at first impeccable, then rather draggy towards the end. Overall, a good experience, but not for steak."

  • "The 16 oz. New York strip ($48) was U.S.D.A. Choice, not Prime (this was disclosed by the waiter when I ordered), but it had that great flavor of a properly-aged steak. In fact, had the waiter not told me, I would have thought it was Prime. The sides (grilled asparagus and mushrooms, $11 each, big enough to share) were excellent, and the dessert (carrot cake with ginger ice cream) was a little piece of heaven."

  • "Food was great! The steak was perfect. Highly recommend."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "This was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. My wife and I went there to celebrate our anniversary the ladies who greeted us were very nice and professional. Our waiter was not very helpful and came off as rude he was never around when we needed anything the steak was cold when it came out and I had to ask him for a coke three times before he brought it and when he finally did it was flat. I would not recommend this Resturant to anyone."

  • "Had dinner near the White House mid week, to discover it was very busy with business/government types. The menu was very good, but the prices were a bit high. This should not deter you if like a high end steak house food. The BLT staff were exceptional. Highly recommend it, but please make reservations. We did and were seated promptly."

  • "We had a great family dinner on our last night of spring break in Washington D.C. at BLT Steak. The service was great and the kids enjoyed the activity booklet they gave them. The appetizer bread was incredible and the steaks were great. Great place to have dinner to end our trip."

  • "BLT Steakhouse was in a great neighborhood & had a very hip ambiance. Our waiter was awesome & the wine list was perfect.."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Main complaint was that hostess could not find the reservation made through Open table until I showed her a copy. Also led us to the table next to the front door when specifically asked for quiet table for a business meeting. I was shown better seating after complaint but hostess did not give warm welcome to me. Food was very good and no complaint about wait service which was good enough. Overall not a top restaurant though."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "This place has one of the the best steak in DC. The service is always great. The ambiance is business casual."
    Dined on 3/25/2013
  • "Reservations were easy to make for Friday evening. The steaks were great but overall, it was way too expensive. The sides were decent, but not amazing. (We ordered bacon, stuffed mushrooms, jalapeño mashed potatoes, and potatoes au gratin.) They were also pricey and small. The jalapeño mashed potatoes had a paste-like texture and were not as awesome as it initially sounded. The service was great, our waiter was attentive, but not annoyingly so. Our water glasses were always full. Our time at BLT was fine, but it was not worth the cost."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The food was excellent, especially the little extras they include (e.g., chicken liver mousse, cheese puffs). The service also was great, but seemed very rushed. Before we had even finished one course, they were already bringing us the next course, which required reorganizing the table to fit everything. The restaurant also is very expensive (tab was $500+ for 3 people with 5 glasses of wine; we did, however, all have an appetizer, entree, and dessert), so be prepared to spend money."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Don't let the name deter you from going. They have wagyu steak and it taste amazing but you order any steak and it will taste great. I am not a red wine drinking but the server recommended a nice red wine to my friend and to my surprise it tasted amazing. You can't go bad with the steak or the wine at BLT Steak."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "I went there for a dinner with a friend. We arrived earlier than our reservation time. Our table wasn't ready, so we set at the bar. We had a cocktail each (they were great). The bar seamed busy and the 2 bartenders were spread out too thin. The bar snacks were great also. Shortly after we were done with the cocktails we were set for dinner. The server assistants did more for us than our server. He had no personality, he wasn't rude, but could do an extra step to at least to smile. The food was good. We didn't like one of the appetizers, but the rest was great."

  • "Excellent. Best steak restaurant in Washington DC!!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "There is not much to day but this is hands down the best steak house in DC. More fun and delicious in comparison to the chains Ruth's Chris and Morton's. If you have friends and family visiting from out if town; this is the place. Not only are the steaks amazing; on this visit my dinner date got the tuna and it was expertly prepared and delicious. Love this place!"

  • "This is the third time we've been to BLT. This time we decided to go, because BLT was celebrating their 10th anniversary. We ordered 3 appetizers, but the one that totally blew us away was the Grilled Double Cut Smoked Bacon. It was the first time we got it, and it was easily the best thing I've eaten all year and maybe longer than that. I could write a whole review just on that. For our entrees, I ordered the 28 Day Dry Age NY Strip and my husband had the Bone In Rib Eye. Both steaks were delicious and perfectly cooked. My husband usually gets the Wagyu Ribeye, which literally melts in your mouth. The sides perfectly complement the entrees. I think we've had almost all of them, and they are all great."

  • "Service was poor - our waiter barely made an appearance and never checked back to see how we were doing. The noise level is high, difficult to have casual conversation."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "It was my husbands birthday and we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived until we left was a wonderful experience. The service got a little spotted at one point but it all came together for a memorable time. Sweet oysters, tender and flavorful Wagu beef and a birthday dessert with after dinner drinks, spectacular!"

  • "Meat was overcooked in sections. Oysters were bad. Not worth the prices"

  • "I entertain 40+ every year and in DC for a conference. Client feedback and personal feedback was amazing! Out server? Curt was great and we will be back ASAP! Please enjoy!"

  • "As always, the popovers are spectacular, the steaks were great and the service outstanding. Try the lobster salad for lunch it is amazing."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "The steak is very good - and the popovers, but for our table every order their meat medium rare and got rare. One person could not eat their Lamb - because it was too raw. Desserts were good. Side dishes - priced similar to other steak houses and usually meant to be share portions were surprisingly small. The spinach was ridiculously small and we had to order 2 for 4 people. Servicer was often distracted and hard to flag down when meat was bad or drinks were needed. It is way too loud there to hold a business conversation. For the price and the experience, it's going to be hard to recommend to others unless they only care about the piece of meat they are eating and I would advise they order one shade more cooked than they want it."

  • "Excellent dining experience. Service was spectacular and the "pop-overs" amazing!!! My date was truly impressed!!"

  • "First time visitors for me and my fiancé. Service was great. Food was succulent. Would recommend to others. Will definitely return in the future."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was very good and the service was as excellent. I'd highly recommend the tuna tartar as an app and the truffle mash potatoes and bacon roasted brussel sprouts as sides. As for entrees, we had the filet and Ny strip, both excellent, but you can't go wrong with any of the cuts. It really depends on your preference. It's expensive but good for that special occasion."

  • "i was there for valentine's day. Nice restaurant and thought the service was very good. The lamb shank and 28 day aged steak was a nice choice for our dinner, but seriously, the meats were disappointing. Next to zero flavour. Felt like a lion eating fresh meat. Bland food. Shame. Desserts were thoroughly enjoyed. i still would recommend to a friend as they have a pretty big menu. I am sure there are many hidden gems on that list."

  • "Went to BLT for dinner the evening after Valentines for two. Our server, while very nice was not very knowledgeable about the menu needing to go back to the kitchen on several occasions to clarify items that came with seafood platter for 1. Our wait time for the food was timely and the food was good but not great. The steak was seasoned and prepared well but the asparagus came out cold and was soggy. Decor of the restaurant was nice but thought the huge diner style menu on the wall was out of place. It definately takes away from the overall ambience of the restaurant and recommend they get rid of it. I was expecting a higher level of service at this price point and came away dissapointed."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "A good enough meal but pretty expensive for what they offered. The Hem mushrooms were overdone and the Brussels Sprouts were disappointing. The steaks were fine and cooked properly but I did not think the cuts exceptional enough to warrant the price. Then there is the noise from the bar which is especially annoying when the loud celebrants are seated and a large table next to yours. A restaurant this expensive owes it to the customers to provide the meal in a relaxing atmosphere it seems to me. The Main course arrived before we were finished with our salads. Were were eating slowly but this is what good service is supposed to be able to handle especially when the room is mostly empty as it was the night we were there during a snow storm."

  • "Great restaurant for lunch, food and service is excellent. Can get a little expensive.... For 2 of us having salads (caesar with tuna...4 thin slices of tuna... and lobster cobb...1 claw...) and one iced tea, it came to over $70.00 with tip, so unless on expense account or special occassion just be aware."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "Be careful what you order. The lobster bisque had too much sherry. I sent it back. The lobster cobb salad cost way too much for the tiny bits of lobster thrown onto a giant bowl of romaine lettuce. Location is convenient for downtown meetings. The staff is very professional and attentive."
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "The restaurant suffers from a noise level that makes it almost impossible to hear a companion sitting next to you....love the food, but I generally avoid BLT because of the noise..."
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "Service was nice and the ambience was what'd you'd expect for a steakhouse. Only problem was the noise level. Not good at all for any type of conversation. While the food and decor is good for a special occasion, the noise level takes away any opportunity to make it one based on a good conversation. Vegetarians beware, very few options. I was the vegetarian in the a group of six, put together several side dishes, which were good, but no token pasta dish or sandwich (lunch) to cater to us. The maitre d' tried his best, he offered to take the bacon out of one of the sides, put some vegetables on a bun, and cobble something together. On that note, all of the service staff were clearly trying their best."
