    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.

    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

    Every time we visit Waikiki with out and exception we always dine at BLT. Everything about this restaurant is excellent. By far the best choice steaks I have had the pleasure of experiencing. 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.

    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.
