A word from BLT Steak
Located in the heart of midtown, BLT Steak is our interpretation of the classic steakhouse, coupled with signature style and all-around finesse. Enhanced by the richness of Macassar Ebony tables and matching suede booths, BLT Steak combines a bistro ambiance with steakhouse fare. Certified Black Angus or USDA Prime steak are dressed with a selection of sauces, ranging from Bearnaise to Horseradish, and are paired with decadent sides such as Parmesan flavored Gnocchi and oversized Onion Rings. Add BLT Steak’s sumptuous selection of fresh seafood, signature salads and blackboard specials and it sets the standard for today’s modern steakhouse.

A 23-foot zinc bar greets diners with an excellent array of libations for pre- or post- dining pleasure.

    Having dined at this restaurant at least a half dozen times, it is accurate to say that BLT has excellent food, pleasant ambiance, however, service has fallen to sub-par levels, for a restaurant of this purported caliber.

    Both food and service were outstanding. My only suggestion might be to change up the music. The classic rock/funk/pop was a little off-putting to the older couple next to us, and I had to agree. Fine dining needs something different. Oh! And the best Manhattan I have ever had!

    in/out fairly efficiently in tune with midtown business lunch traffic needs. brussels sprouts are always a fun little treat. we pointed out our wobbly table to the waitstaff, who had apparently noticed it before we said anything, but it didn't get addressed at any point during our meal. a bit annoying.

    As a couple we were seated in a row with tables for 2, which were so close to each other, that we and other people next to us had to move the table to get in and out. Food was good but not excellent. Fries were worse than in any fast food restaurant, completely oily and burned. But there took them at least of the bill. And finally, the area where we were sittin was freezing cold. We complaint more than once but nothing changed, so the food got cold very quickly. Overall I can't recommend the restaurant because it isn't worth the money. You spend a lot but you don't get the value for that money.

    We have been to BLT Steak several times. I love it. This time was extra special. We were celebrating our 9 year anniversary. Luis was our server along with several other staff members being very attentive. Luis made our night perfect. The lobster was so tender. The steak was perfectly cooked. And we had a surprise dessert from the restaurant because it was our anniversary. I will be back there sooner then later. Best night out.

    The minute we walked in we were greeted by the Maitre d He took us to a great table. The sommelier recommended a great wine. The key issue is that he found a great wine to drink that was well within our wine budget. The steaks were excellent and was prepared exactly as we asked. The popovers a specialty was brought to the table hot and were delicious. I will be back soon

    Ate at BLT the night after running the NYC Marathon. Had the NY strip and it was cooked and seasoned perfectly. Also had creamed spinach, truffle mashed potatoes, and Brussels sprouts for sides and they were all delicious. The popovers were better than any I've ever had. Great wine list and good selection of scotch. Service was prompt and accommodating.

    The place is nice and not as cramped as some people say. We had a great time but parking cost over $60 and the food was very pricy. (I guess thats to be expected in that area) I personally will stick to places with free parking and a more reasonable price range. They did not really knock my socks off and for the cost I feel we should have left raving that it was the best meal ever. That was not the case. Bottom line the wait staff was excellent, the steak was great, the lambchops where just ok and nothing special. The rest was just average. The only thing that really made me "Wow, this is delicious" was the watermelon basil cocktail and the bloody Mary. They were both exceptional... We had a good time but I would probably not return.

    My favorite place. Everything was great - High level of food and outstanding service! The only remark I can point of, is the great bread they serve to the table. It been always so tasty and special, but last time it wasn't the same as it use to be. Still great bread, but less then a 2 years before. Please, bring it back to what it use to be. Would love to come there, again and again. Thanks!

    We had been to BLT Prime before twice which was outstanding so we wanted to try BLT Steak. The food and service was likewise outstanding! BLT Steak has a bit of a more higher-end feel to it then BLT Prime. BLT Steak also does not have the dry-aging room visible to the public the way that BLT Prime does, which is neat to see. The tables are a bit close together at BLT Steak, but that seems to be the latest trend in restaurants, especially in NY, as restaurants try to achieve maximum capacity and revenue. The service at BLT Steak was impeccable. They even brought us complimentary glasses of champagne since we were celebrating our 10-year wedding anniversary.

    The restaurant was out of the first three of the four dishes on the menu that we wanted to order. Then, the sommelier suggested a wine which was too young to drink. He took it back, but not without expressing some frustration with our dissatisfaction. For an expense account steak house, less attitude and a complete menu is expected.

    The food was absolutely delicious! The grilled miso tuna was perfectly prepared with great flavor, texture, and temperature. The shrimp cocktail could have been deveined more thoroughly, but it had great flavor as well. Gigantic popovers very hot and fresh from the over instead of bread is a creative offering! Our waitress was unfortunately extremely cold, unenthusiastic, and left much to be desired in the way of service. She was not friendly, inviting, or concerned with our enjoyment of the meal or restaurant. A very unfortunate part of the experience, but luckily I care much more about the food than the service.

    If you like nothing special steak, outrageous noise, and feeling like you're eating on a packed subway car at rush hour, this is your place. I have colleagues who like this place very much, and the food -- in fairness -- is very good. But it's not distinguishable to me from all the other steak places. The noise level and crowdedness however are really too much, however. Staff works very hard, and often seem to have to dance majestically to avoid crashing into other staff because of the crowdedness of the place.

    From the opening warm brioche (instead of a bread basket), to the wonderful house-made carrot cake (not your mother's carrot cake), BLT was a wonderful experience. I called in advance with a special seating request and they honored it. AND - they serve an entire head of roast garlic with their porterhouse (I hadn't seen that before). I smeared a little garlic on each forkful of steak. Delicious. That garlic should be on memo to every steakhouse in NY. I rate them at the very top of NY steakhouses.
