    We splurge one night while on vacation and do a big beef night . BLT in Honolulu was perfect for this treat. The Beef was correct and sides were off the hook. Service and atmosphere were the most . I highly recommend it

    Food was good and came prepared as ordered. The lump crab meat appetizer is one of my recommended favorites, as is the Popovers with butter and salt. Service was excellent...waiter Chris' recommendations were spot-on. Was nice to have a bit of leftovers to take home for midnite snack. The music was a bit distracting and loud...something more soothing would have been more conducive to the ambiance. I look foward to dining there whenever staying in Waikiki.

    Food, drinks, service and ambiance were all very excellent! I am sure to come back BLT whenever I come to visit Honolulu again! Only one thing I would like to mention is that the menu was so hard to read in candle light because the letters were all so small specially for the elder like us. I didn't expect I should have brought my glasses. I would be grateful if the menu is written in a little larger letters. Anyway, I really enjoyed the time at BLT. Thank you so much!

    The appetisers and seafood was great. The Oasters variety and freshness were to kill for. Surprisingly the steak was over cooked for Med rare and was pricey for what we got. Will have to try the steaks again. But overall great device and I would go back again & recommend the restaurant for sure.

    I'm still amazed when I hear people say they had a bad time at BLT. The food is great, both the standard menu items and the specials are always so fresh and flavorful. I have a noise and very pleasant waitstaff and this is a great place to be a 'regular'. This is a great restaurant both for special occasions and just at the end of a long day when you need a good meal.

    We were staying at the Trump and went to BLT Steak downstairs expecting a great meal. We were taken outside without choice - had to ask to be moved inside. Hostess seemed put-off that we asked to be moved. Wait staff are friendly but overworked. Had to ask for menus. Had to ask for water to be refilled, had to ask after our drinks order. Steaks delivered in cast iron pan, which is nice - but the steak itself had no sear, no crust - it was more med than med-rare as ordered. Daughter's steak was ordered "blue" but delivered medium. Chewy and bland. A crime for such good meat. To their credit, they comp'd her steak (which she barely touched). It was our last night in Oahu, this was a very disappointing meal.

    From the food to presentation and staff, it was all 5 star - which is exactly what you expect from this wonderful steakhouse located in the Trump hotel. I would recommend giving yourself at least three hours to fully enjoy this place. I estimated two hours and was nearly late for plane out that same night. The General Manager and the servers assistant, however were more than accommodating to our needs for a quick ending to dinner and made sure we were satisfied before leaving. Will definitely be back. Ps- almost made the mistake of skipping dessert. Was so glad we did not! The dragon fruit cheesecake was amazing!

    The food is always excellent when we go here. I'm a big fan of the blackboard menu since it gives us a few new choices every time we go. We had the scallops agnolotti, Kansas CAB w/ the bone-in and bone marrow, hanger steak, and a bunch of sides. The portions are always really big too, so even it seems expensive at times, you can always share or take it home for another full meal. :) We also really enjoyed the dragon fruit cheesecake; it was an unexpected delight.

    Disorganized service staff. Early on felt like they wanted to flip table 3x that night (6pm dinner) then we were forgotten. Pop ups came 3/4 through entree service; then another 20 minutes to clear plates, then another 10 minutes to bring dessert menu, then another 20 minutes to bring check. And this isn't a romantic atmosphere, lots of bustle full of foreign tourists and if you sit outside you deal with noisy buses and some will idle their exhaust across the street. Food was OK but nothing there left me wanting to return regardless of service. I think I understand their philosophy but don't agree with it.

    Offered outdoor seating, then we were ushered over to a different outdoor alleyway, in a corner next to a family with kids. The area was in an alleyway which was extremely noisy, we had to ask for a different table. Came in for Dover sole, but that wasn't even on the menu. Ordered champagne, took over 15 minutes to come. When it finally came, so did our appetizers, so we weren't able to enjoy our champagne with our popovers and liver pate. I ordered my $50 steak medium, and it was burnt to a crisp! Beyond well done, dry and grey. I wish I had sent it back. Hash browns were bland and oily. Ice cream on mousse dessert melted by the time our after dinner drinks came. Those drinks were HORRIBLE, too strong to the point of undrinkable.

    We've gone to BLT several times already, as it is in our neighborhood and a great place to take out of town guests. We've always had a great experience and because we go so often, we even have our "Staple Menu" down pat. The tuna tartare and the Lobster Cobb Salad are must haves. We also love that the steak can be shareable if you get a big enough cut. The last time we visited, I was pregnant, so I couldn't share in the medium rare steak, but t had the Opah Belly instead as suggested by our waiter and that was also delicious. Note: service here is usually great, but had to wait 20-30 mins despite reservations last two times. Front desk women is VERY rude and unpleasant, but generous general manager and attentive waiters made up for it.

    service from the start was very poor. they had given us menus that had different prices. they had just printed new menus and never took the time to pull the old ones out. we had 4 old menus and 1 new menu. server was scatter brained. he took the order from 3 of us then left for awhile then returned to take the the order from the other 2 people we had with us. steak quality although advertised as being good quality had a lot of gristle and we all had a hard time cutting through the meat without a struggle (knives were not sharp). steaks were also less than flavorful. onion rings were very oily. we were told complementary brownie desserts were going to be served but they never came. i would not recommend this place to anyone.

    They have good options for both carnivores as well as vegetarians. Prix fixe was as good deal for $70 which included a salad, main course, side dish and dessert selection. What felt odd though was that we were seated outside as it felt as though they sat the "asians" outside and the caucasians "inside" the restaurant. Another "local" couple baulked when they tried to seat them outside and they got to sit inside the restaurant. Maybe it was because we were not dressed in suit and tie?!? The NY steak was perfectly prepared and my wife totally enjoyed the brussels sprouts. Oh and the popovers are totally delicious with a crispy crust and moist inside.

    I did not feel that this steak house met my expectations as far as quality and preparation. I usually don't need sauces to consume my steaks. My wife ordered the Onaga which was cooked on top and totally raw on the bottom, we sent it back and it was finished and she enjoyed it. The appetizers were ok but the Yorkshire pudding and salmon pate were great. The $12.00 (12oz) bottles of Sapporo were a bit steep as the Heineken were only $5.00. I don't mind spending the money for great dining and this experience allows me to only give BLT an average rating.

    BLT has great steaks but it is much more. The tuna poke appetizer is amazing. We also tried the tomato salad with bacon vinaigrette, which was also excellent. For entrees we tried the ribeye and the parmesan crusted veal chop, plus onion rings, BBQ corn and asparagus as sides. We loved our dinner and the tiny brownies the restaurant gives you for desert were a perfect ending. BLT is on the expensive side but worth it in our view. Our only complaint was that the cost of the double espresso at the end of the meal -- $9.50 -- was too high. So skip the espresso and have one of BLT's side dishes instead.

    Cost is right up there with the best steakhouses, but the quality of the food and the service level are really not there. I've eaten there twice now and same experience both times. Long wait at the host stand, even with reservations; strange timing of courses (slow first course, then too fast with second); food that is "ok", etc. Best to save the money and visit a "real" steakhouse.

    My husband and I were in Hawaii celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. We decided to try BLT for dinner one night and we weren't sorry. OMG this place is fabulous, and i am from Chicago, city of steakhouses. First off, the bread and chicken liver pate - to die for (and I hate liver). Then the popovers… heaven. Absolute heaven. We both had filets, perfectly cooked, and hash browns. Again, excellent. Only regret is that we didn't have dessert, but the complimentary chocolate chip brownies made up for it. Excellent service, ambiance, and food. Run, don't walk here!

    Food was good quality. Our server had a good sense of humour. However it came at a price - it is a place that you would only go once because of the cost yet it is not a place that has a feeling of a special occasion or intimate romance. It is trying to be a 'brand' steak restaurant, but does not succeed as a dining experience for couples. Maybe that is exactly the point of this place set in the middle of touristy Waikiki.
