BLT Steak DC
Nice Welcome BackI had not gone to BLT Steak for dinner in quite some time as new steak houses and new restaurants abound in DC. It was a nice welcome back to see the restaurant doing well and the food consistent. We were seated at a corner booth table as requested and even though the server was busy, he was engaged and humorous. The evening left me with a satified feeling and a note to remember to put the restuarant back into rotation.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSeafoodI had the seafood and my girl friend had the hangar steak. Oysters, shrimp, and clams were great. The claw was unimpressive. Hangar steak was great. The popovers were weird and unnecessary. I much preferred the bread that was brought out with with pâté.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Birthday DinnerTurning 35, I mean 28, was hard. Thankfully a wonderful dinner at BLT was all I needed. We had a reservation for 10:15 - but decided we wanted to sit at the bar, which was quite full at the time. The hostess was gracious enough to ask a single diner who had empty seats on either side of him if he would mind sliding down one.
Our bartender was wonderful - the food was amazing. Oysters and Bacon to start. NY Strip was cooked perfectly, the asparagus was delicious. The only think that did not hit the spot was the jalapeño mashed potatoes. I was hoping for normal mashed with bits of peppers - instead the are a green puree resembling baby food - and boy were they spicy.
Dessert on the house for my birthday was a nice touch.
Highly recommend.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMTry the TartarI have never been to an American steakhouse. It was amazing. The tuna tartar was superb. We ordered the porterhouse for two and it was divine. I will definitely visit another BLT location.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMEven Great for Non Meat Eaters!I haven't eaten meat in 22 years but still find plenty to enjoy at BLT Steak! The seafood, fish and salads are all delicious (the tuna tartar app is wonderful!). I could easily have a piping hot popover (be careful not to burn yourself!) and a salad or app and be completely satisfied. I've been told the steaks are the best around (and giving my lab's reaction to a few leftovers I'd say that must be right).
Be sure to save room for the Peanut Butter Mousse dessert! You won't be disappointed. Expect to drop a lot of cash, or better yet use an expense account if you can!
Service is great as well and there is a nice outdoor patio area if the weather is nice.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPink is not pinkGreat food and service was great unless you questioned or disagreed. Then, beware. I specifically requested my steak be pink not red and was assured by waiter and shown on menu that cooking the steak to medium would have a pink center. It was not, it was blood red and I had to send it back and didn't get it until until others at table had finished their meal. When I got the filet cooked as I requested it was delicious. But pink is not pink at BLT Steak. I will dine there again, but now I knw how to order my steak.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMService was great. SeveralService was great. Several nice touches: delicious popovers, pate de foie gras. Starve yourself before you go: the portion sizes are humongous. Tried both the 12 oz Filet and the 10 oz. Wagyu Top Cap. Preferred the Filet over the Wagyu. Roasted Asparagus and Brussels Sprouts with honey and bacon. We left nothing on the plates. We can't believe we ate everything.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSteaks were consistently great.Steaks were consistently great. Our four diners all had well chared, prefectly cooked steaks. The BLT popovers are almost worth the trip themselves, and the only problem with the complimentary pate is you'll want more! The high noise level is the only thing preventing the restaurant from being characterized as "romantic."4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great!Service was excellent! A very attentive staff from host to table. Oysters were amazing...Tuna tartare never dissapoints. Steak was (for the first time ever) not hot enough. Usually the staub is sizzling hot. Still very flavorful and not worthy of any formal complaint. Dessert amazing. Blt is always a safe bet for an excellent experience!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWelcome Back to BeefOur daughter had abstained from eating meat for over 8 years but had recently told us she wanted to go out for a steak. She'd eased herself back into eating meats over the past 4 months and was ready for the real deal. We took her to BLT. Her prime dry-aged NY Strip was the perfect 'welcome back'. Our server was attentive & informative. Great evening all around. OH and the brussel sprouts were amazing!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic PlaceOutstanding---Very good meal and the service was fantastic. There was no rush. Just an outstanding evening.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible dining experience.Incredible dining experience. Starters included chicken liver pate, cheese popovers and Caesar salad that were exceptional! Filet mignon was best I have EVER had. Cooked perfectly and scrumptious. Service was very attentive.

Cannot wait to return!!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth it!Impeccable service, all our questions answered, appropriate wait time for food, great ambiance, what more could you ask for!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, always vibrant.Good food, always vibrant. The popovers are excellent at the start of the meal. The only real knock are a somewhat limited tap beer list and the side dishes really are quite small. But overall, that is just being nitpicky. Very good.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMy first experience at BLTMy first experience at BLT Steak was very positive. The service was great, especially the knowledgeable staff. We received great descriptions and recommendations. Although the restaurant was noisy, it was not unpleasant or rowdy, rather maintaining a real "hot spot" feel. I would definitely recommend BLT Steak for groups, but date night it is a little loud. Despite this, the food was magnificent. I had the special braised veal which was absolutely divine. I will be going back!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMVery willing to make any specialVery willing to make any special event experience all that you desire to the best of the ability... they will work with you... have things they do on their own when you get there to add to... and they are sensitive to your needs. Everything at this restaurant is excellent.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIve searched the world forIve searched the world for a perfect steak, and this is the second time in my travels that I have found it. We really enjoyed the wagu steaks, they had the tenderness and flavor unlike any other cut of meat. And most importantly they were seasoned and cooked to perfection for everyone at the table. The sides and pop overs were also outstanding. The service could have been better, I dont like to have to ask to place my order but it was a lively sat night and I am going to give that a pass as the server was knowledgeable about the food and wines.
I cant wait until my next trip to DC so I can come back. Thank you for a very memorable evening.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I went here whileMy wife and I went here while visiting Washington, DC earlier this month and both thought the food and service were out of this world. Easily the best steak I've had. Restaurant is pretty loud though so if you're looking for an intimate evening this might not be the best choice for you.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPricey, but too be expected.Pricey, but too be expected. Otherwise, the food, atmosphere and service were all wonderful. Great for a date night or special occasion.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I went to BLTMy husband and I went to BLT steak to celebrate my birthday. We enjoy trying new steakhouses and BLT is now our new favorite. The filet was delicious and the service was exceptional. I can't wait to go back again.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I made a reservationMy husband and I made a reservation for our wedding annivresary. The whole atmosphere and food make for a wonderful night out. The wine list is extensive with helpful sommeliers. The food was wonderful and portions were big enough for my husband I to share. The make an excellent cappuchino as well. My steak was cooked to perfection. The wait staff was excellent, they did not hover and always seemed to know when drinks needed to be refilled. This is kind of restaurant that is worth every penny.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious steak place. VeryDelicious steak place. Very pleasant service - friendly and professional4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentThis place was great! Our daughter who is only 10 loved this place. The seafood platter with the snails was delicious. The steaks were perfect. The waiter made it all happen for us. He was excellent and attentive to our needs.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my favorite steakThis is my favorite steak place in DC, but not so much for the steak as for the popovers and the desserts. The service is always very polite and knowledgeable. On my most recent visit, for the first time (and I've eaten here at least a half dozen times), the server was actually attentive. Usually dinner here takes two hours because the waiters don't seem too concerned about rushing to take your order.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time and will be backThe service was top notch. The crab cake appetizer and bone in NY Strip were excellent. Very good wine selection. A little pricey but well worth it.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeded all expectations...onlyExceeded all expectations...only had dinner before.
This is one Top lunch spot. We will return, even though it is a 35 minute drive from Ch. 5 in NW.

A truly premier steakhouse and truly premier restaurant irrespective of cuisine.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExceded expectationsBeautiful atmosphere. The classiest of steakhouses without the stuffiness. The Bone in NY Strip was magnificent. Dry aged perfectly and cooked just the way I like it, Pittsburg Black n Blue. The waiter was very knowledgeable and very friendly with the suggestions as if he was an good close buddy. BLT Steak DC was known for their superior quality and it came thru in every way.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMVery expensive, but food wasVery expensive, but food was delicious and service was outstanding. Good for a special occasion (we were on vacation), but not an everyday spot.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways the best. Steak isAlways the best.

Great to have an opportunity to dine there again....since it has left Dallas!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing steaks!My sister and I recently visited BLT and loved it. Had an amazing spicy tequila cocktail at the bar which I recommend to all. For an we ordered the steak tar-tar. We'd never tried but thought we'd be adventurous. Glad we did because the seasoning was amazing and overall great light app to share! My sister and I both ordered filet mignon which we were shocked at the 12oz portion size.... They both perfectly cooked however unfortunately couldn't finish. The only down side was being sat at table close to the door so caught the draft most of the night.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite SteakhouseThe best steaks around! My wife and I love this place! Excellent service.3/7/2013 12:00:00 AMKudos to BLT!While the food may be high in price, the attention to service and detail (and the delicious burgers) made it all well worth it.
The popover recipe provided with the popovers is an especially nice touch.
I was most impressed with the wait staff clearing plates and refilling water instantly, without intruding on the lunchtime conversation.1/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
