    Loved the restaurant's trendy decor & comfy booth. Our lobster salad had nice chunks & was dressed perfectly. Popovers & pate delicious. Ribeye done right & reheated leftovers still moist/tender. Butterfish was devoured:) Peanut butter/chocolate dessert was just right shared with cappuccinos. We look forward to our next visit!

    Aloha sorry but we were there for my wife's 50 B-Day. The food was small portions , my meat selection was burn and the fish my wife ordered was so small it was a joke. We spent more than $500+ dollars, not a small amount. We normally dine about 3 to 4 times a month in high quality restaurants and left with a bad taste. Service was above average.

    Great service & very accommodating. We went for our 10 year anniversary and got a complimentary dessert and glass of wine! We thought that was fabulous. Our server (I think his name was Diego?) was very attentive and friendly with great suggestions. We had been meaning to try this restaurant for awhile and finally made it over there. Everything was perfect!

    The restaurant has delicious food and great service. There's no view though... right off the road. But other than that it was excellent. Loved the stuffed mushrooms and onion rings too. The bread was awesome but it came after our meal was over.

    From the beginning the experience was great. The front desk staff greeted us and recignized the nane right ftom the beginning. The waitstaff was very attentive and very friendly. At no point did we have to wonder where our food was or when we would get more water. The food itself was delicious. The experience was something out if this world. Well worth the price. Sonething to save up for and try at least once.

    Dined on 10/11/2014
    Arrived at exact time of booking to a very disorganized maître d, on giving our name for the booking we were told, you will have to wait. When asked how long we must wait 15/30 mins? Her reply was I just don't know. We perched for a while and fortunately after some 10 minutes a senior waiter saw our predicament and sorted a table for us. It was though in the bar not the restaurant. Obviously over booked and given our booking was made 3 days prior this was very poor. Our waiter same guy was superb and along with the very good food saved the night for BLT. Bar beside our table very noisy

The wait staff are so professional and well informed of their menus and wines. Just an all over excellent dining experience for all.

    My wife and I visited BLT for the first time during our romantic 3-night getaway in Waikiki and it did not disappoint. The service was impeccable. The staff graciously relocated us from the bar area to a table on the lanai without any trouble. Our waiter had a great demeanor and was always checking in on us without it feeling overbearing. The crab cake and Ahi appetizers were delicious. The braised short ribs with gnocchi as a side were amazing! I could tell my wife really enjoyed the evening out and I did as well. Would definitely recommend BLT to anyone.

    My reservation was ready well before my time and as I arrived earlier than my time, they offered my table because it was ready 30 minutes ahead. Servers and waiters were outstanding! Very attentive and willing to serve. When our food came out, one of the stakes were not well done as requested. Once we brought it to their attention, they quickly took it back to correct the order and our waiter and I think a manager came to apologize more than once. Other than that, the food, service and overall experience was exceptional. I truly a completely satisfied customer and will return!

    This is the second time that we have had dinner at BLT. Last time our table near the entrance was unsatisfactory. This time we were accommodated with a better table. The food was extraordinary and the service from Russell was second to none. We know because we fine dine once per month. He was very knowledgeable , pleasant and was just outstanding.

    Really nice restaurant setting, but the booth seats were very uncomfortable - the cushion was too soft and each person "sunk" too low into the seat - we had to sit on the extra pillows. The service was okay, but not impressive - plus, the rib eye steak was not cooked to order, but was not burned, just tough. Onion rings were delivered very late ie, following all entrees.

    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.
