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
  • "This is, hands down, the very best steakhouse in DC. No other - not Morton's The Palm, Capitol Grille, Charlie Palmer, etc. - can compete with BLT's quality of food and service."

  • "On par with some of the better steak restaurants, not the best, but very, very good. The steak was prepared properly, the ceasar salad was very good, the asparagus was OK. I would return any time."

  • "As much as I was hoping to have a great experience here, it just wasn't. The ambiance is always more along the lines of power lunch/dinner, which is not a big deal, especially considering the restaurant location. The service was excellent, could not have been better. My steak though, that's another story. It was very dry, bland and overdone. I really wished to find something positive about the food, but I couldn't. The price tag just added more salt to the wound. BLT is a safe choice for people looking to get their meat fix, but I definitely think there's better out there."

  • "Always consistent on food and service. A sure-fire experience every time. Best steak in DC. Most restaurants slip over the years but BLT is a s fresh as when it opened in 2006."

  • "Reservations 830pm Saturday, July 5th. Arrived 801pm, went to bar had a nice Rose. Table ready at 830pm, seated, water poured. 15 minutes later, served Chicken Liver pate, not very appetizing, tasted it, sort of set the tone for the evening. I would rethink serving Chicken Liver pate as a first taste. (I'm sure there are those that love it, but not for me). Another 15 minutes past so now about 9pm and we had to tell someone to ask our waiter to take our order. Cesar salad dry and overwhelming taste of anchovy in the sauce. NY strip medium, was very tough, not that good, only ate half the steak. Overheard other tables complaining about the quality of the steak. Too pricing for mediocre tasting food."

  • "My steak was severly undercooked. Halfway through our meal, the manager took over the table service. I made the reservation and told on here, even called to tell them it was my girlfriends birthday, I told them I wanted to do something special and asked if they brought cake or anything the hostess replied yes and abruptly cut me off and hung up. After dinner just the check. Making me look like a dick when there was nothing special for her birthday. This isn't my first bad experience with BLT, the last one was in Atlanta and I had to write their cooperate office an email. Next time, I'll be dining at STK. I'm officially done with this place."

  • "The bar needs a divider. Alcohol decreases hearing and these Washingtonians drink! We could barely hear our waiter. But the food was good, maybe lower prices and a little less of it would be nice."

  • "Great place for good steak even if Wagyu and Kobe are not appropriate adjectives for US beef. Awesome popovers are not to be eaten before a cholesterol test."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "My filet was cooked perfectly in the mini cast iron pan. The sides were equally good and the best part was the homeade ice cream!! Best coffee ice cream I have ever had! Would definitely go again and looking forward to trying another flavor of ice cream and another cut of steak."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "The reviews are spot on! I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and we were blown away at the level of service, the quality of the food and the options available. I put in a small request with my open table reservation to have a birthday candle placed in his dessert, but they went above and beyond - all the staff told him happy birthday, and the chef sent several complimentary dishes to the table. He had the best time and we both had the best steaks we had ever had. Of note, spring for the premium Waygu sampler while it's on the menu - it was worth every penny!! :)"

  • "We had never been to BLT and I chose it for a special lunch after my son's graduation. I made a note of the occasion in my reservation as well as the fact that my son has some food allergies. When they greeted us, they congratulated my son and inquired about his allergies. Very attentive wait staff, friendly, warm. Just made the lunch very special, as if we were regulars. Loved the food--delicious, everything. A memorable lunch for a memorable day. Don't go if you're on a budget--it was worth it, but it is definitely for special occasions."

  • "Spent a pretty penny, but this is a great spot for a special occasion dinner. Service is wonderful, drinks are fabulous. Skip the hen of the woods mushrooms, too hard to eat. Had the tuna, amazing. Rest of the table enjoyed steaks, winner was the short ribs. Chocolate peanut butter moose was great, carrot cake was more of ginger cake. Over all, excellent meal, excellent time."

  • "We waited too long for dinner and had to ask if it was on its way (very out of character for us). We had to track our waiter down at the end of the meal to get our chek as well. Our waiter seemed very preoccupied with other tables and it was clear that he had too much to do to be attentive to us. The rest of the staff was very attentive. 2 of 3 meals were excellent - a ribeye steak was ok at best- frankly we get better at Costco. The check for 3 was over $300 with only one drinking alcohol (wine) - which amplifies the service issues. Fun atmosphere - pretty loud but we were comfortable."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "BLT Steak is exactly what a high-end business-suit lunch spot should be: smart, efficient and flawlessly executed. It's also pricey, but look beyond the expensive Kobe steaks to find healthy, affordable gems like the generous chopped salad with meat options and the lightly dressed Salad Nicoise (but order it with seared fresh tuna rather than the preserved tuna it usually comes with). It also has one of the best dessert menus in town, and it's worth the modest calorie investment to finish with a scoop of the luxurious huckleberry sorbet."

  • "Admittedly, I picked this restaurant because it was an Obama (Michelle's) favorite. I had assumed it was going to be a bit more "romantic", but the restaurant was filled with DC movers and shakers and the place was a bit loud, but only because people were enjoying the food and each others company. We were there during prime dinner hour, so if a later time had been chosen perhaps the ambiance would have been more conducive to my romantic intent. No matter, the excellence of the food and staff far outweighed any disappointment I thought I was going to have because the noise level of conversations was too high. The filet mignon was butter..."

  • "I had eaten here for a group event and was so impressed with the preselected menu that I wanted to back. Went with a small group this time and it was even more impressive than the first! Great blood orange margeritas, oysters, popovers (don't skip those!), steaks and desserts. A little noisy and pretty expensive, but I can't wait to go back, just as soon as I can lose the weight that I'm sure I gained that night! Service staff was also top rate from the hostesses to bartender to wait staff."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "We enjoyed a delicious meal, crisp wine, and wonderful service. The manager was very attentive as was our server and all members of the wait staff. The food was top quality and worth every penny. We would definitely dine again!"

  • "Last Monday I went to have lunch there. The restaurant was not so crowded, so there was a good atmosphere to talk during the lunch. Bread was very good. Unfortanately, the waiter didnt offer more bread. The waiter was very polite, but it took too much time to get our order. The food was not bad, but there was no relation price/quality. I would expect more for the bill that I got. I will think a lot before come back. "

  • "I really enjoyed my dinner at BLT DC, this was my first visit and I cannot complain. The service was on point, the servers kept the drinks filled and we received constant attention from the servers and management. The food was superb and the desert was delightful (I had the peanut butter chocolate mousse)! I will definitely return to try the lunch menu and other items on the dinner and desert menu."

  • "Went there with my parents, based on reviews I had read. Was disappointed by my experience. Although my filet mignon was good, my mom's rib-eye was of poor quality. Not worth the money. Side-dishes were average: creamy spinach were "boring", onion rings not crispy at all, and green beans barely cooked. Too expensive for what we got. Would definitely recommend to try another steakhouse."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "The options are amazing! The food was divine (had salmon in light cream sauce). Be sure to try the popovers, even if you're on a diet, they're worth it! The staff was welcoming and attentive we, my co-workers and I, finished lunch in under an hour, without feeling rushed or flustered. It was the perfect spot! Try it out!"

  • "Every year during my DC trip I make sure to have dinner here. Awesome steaks! The Pop overs are absolutely amazing! We will be back!"

  • "My wife and I got a filet and a rib eye. Both were cooked very nicely. Only fault was that they were supposed to butterfly for her well done filet, but seem to have forgotten, so it had some pinkness. Au gratin potatoes were awesome, beets were yummy, and salad was deliscious. Desert, the peanut butter chocolate mouse, was absolutely incredible. Oh, and holy popovers!!"

  • "While the prices are steep, your meal includes lots of extras like cheesy popovers and a dessert treat that make it a much better deal. "

  • "My husband ordered a medium well steak and mashed potatoes. ....the steak was medium rare at best and they forgot the potatoes. My scallops were raw. The noise level was so bad I couldn't even hear myself think. This was definitely not a quiet and romantic place to eat. "

  • "Good but not outstanding steaks for the price. I guess a strip steak is not the most tender cut but still for $48, I would have expected something really outstanding. The short ribs on the other hand were terrific. Service of food is strange as they bring the steak or side dish to the table on a plate or pan but I would have expected the waiter to then transfer the food to my plate or at least provide a fork or other utensil with the dish. Instead I was left alone to use my own fork to forked the steak out of the servicing dish - not very elegant for a $50 steak. Otherwise the service was attentive."

  • "My husband & I went here for his birthday. Although we were looking forward to dining at BLT, we weren't expecting anything out of the ordinary as its part of a large chain. Everything exceeded our expectations! Food was phenomenal (compliments to Chef Jeremy), waitstaff was attentive & kind. The only negative is that it was very loud, which was surprising because the restaurant was not full. Also, loud tipsy folks at the bar can be heard well from the dining area. Overall, a great experience!"

  • "I took my boyfriend there for his birthday. He's not a foodie but he loves steak and he got both. I wanted to take him somewhere fabulous but not stuffy. BLT Steak was it. The pate and the popovers were awesome. He had never had pate and he liked it. We then got the bacon for an appetizer. It was wonderful. Soft and crisp all at the same time. He got the NY Strip and I got the Ribeye. Both were delicious. Use the sauces sparingly to get the flavor of the beef. We shared the apple cobbler which was awesome. Prices weren't bad for a steak house. Loved the valet parking. "
