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.

    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.

    It's not often a fine dining restaurant fails to miss my expectations, I'm usually pretty easy going but BLT Steak really got under my skin. We were there for a birthday, I had a reservation, and we got seated 30 minutes late. Strike one, this is the reason I don't go to Sparks for special occasions. Strike two, despite speaking to the hostess ahead of time about the birthday, the message didn't get passed along the front line, i h. Strike three, despite being a group of 4, the staff couldn't seem to get the details right. Drink mixups, serving the wrong meals to the wrong folks, asking to remove the bread only for a new basket to reappear. The devil is in the details, it's basic stuff. Disappointing for a very expensive meal.

    We love BLT. We go to celebrate special occasions and it never disappoints. I always get the chopped salad to start and vary my main meal between the hanger steak and the lamb. It always delicious . The service is always amazing . The are very attentive and make sure you always have everything you need. My husband always gets the bone in ribeye and it never disappoints. I highly reccommend BLT

    This restaurant is very over rated. It is not worth it, value for money. The place is noisy and uninspiring. The decor is cafeteria like. While the steak was mot bad, there are many other places in New York City that are much better and less expensive.

    Came here on a spur of the moment decision and we are glad we did. Food was excellent, couldn't fault it and the service was like none we've ever had before, they really pay attention to details even the smallest ones like filling your water up. From the moment we walked in we felt very welcome, the atmosphere was good not too noisey. Would definately recommend this to anyone coming in a group with friends or for a romantic dinner for 2 :)

    My boyfriend and I came here Saturday night for dinner. We both ordered The waiter then brought over bread with dip, and these amazing popovers which were awesome! We got the chopped vegetable salad as an appetizer which was very good; we both loved it! For our entrees, I got the NY strip (bone out), and my boyfriend got the NY strip (bone in); and we got mashed potatoes to split. The food arrived and it looked amazing (key word being looked). The steak was mediocre at best. It had no flavor. In fact, as a person who NEVER uses steak sauce, I had to drown my steak in sauce for any flavor at all. My boyfriend felt the same way- the steak was very disappointing. The mashed potatoes were awesome, but it still did not make up for the steak.

    I had a great experience at BLT Steak. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. The Rib eye with red wine sauce was perfect, the best I have ever had. The bread and butter they served before the main menu were also great! I really recommend. I will return to BLT Steak on my next time in NYC.

    BLT Steak was good, just not great. I expected more. The service was very good and they took us right away. However, the steaks did not stand out, nor did the sides. The steaks and sides were good, nothing I haven't had elsewhere, better. The drinks were good, as was the lobster cobb salad my wife and I shared. That was the best thing we ate. We also enjoyed the popovers. Overall it was a nice dining experience but with so many steak places I probably would not go back to BLT.

    My favorite of the NYC offerings by ESquared. Seasonal blackboard items are fun and creative. Considerable wine selection, sommelier available. Whiskey selection is also notable. Fare is consistent, always excellent. A bit pricey, but pre-fixe available, and the popovers alone are worth the price.

    Went there for my wife's birthday, the food was great. Biggest filet mignon I have ever had. Menu was nice and concise, ambience is great. Had reservations for 845, was seating at 840. Waiter was a little slow tending to our table i.e. refilling drinks, removing plates. Overall a great experience.

    Overal, the food was good and atmosphere was ok. We had the lobster salad for our appetizer. The lobster was delicious, but the salad was not fresh. We both had steak. The steak was cooked perfect temperature. The portion size of the steak was large (too much). The side dish we chose was asparagus and it was cooked perfectly. For dessert we had the chocolate tart and pistachio ice cream. By far, dessert was the best course. We ordered coffee with dessert, but did not receive until almost finished with dessert. Wait staff was professional, but not friendly. Service was slow. Atmosphere was nice, but on the loud side.

    Made reservation late but when we arrived table was ready - seemed as though servers were a bit out of step with kitchen as the courses really came out on top of one another. Roasted beet appetizer needed more gorganzola - Filet perfectly cooked : rib-eye was a bit tough / frites excellent - creamed spinach wonderful - asparagus very tasty - wines overpriced but it is nyc - no room for dessert but their after dinner palate cleaner was fantastic. Overall a great dinner almost perfect. Recommend it highly.

    They got everything wrong.I ordered vodka, very little ice and a splash of cranberry. It tasted like a cherry Popsicle it was so loaded with everything but vodka. Waiter wasn't happy with my asking for a new drink.We ordered steak well done, 40 minutes later it arrived med rare. The baked potatoe wasn't cooked through and was freezing cold. Horrible attitude on the part of the waiter, rushed us to order then was nowhere to be found when we needed him. Best part of the meal was the popovers and when we were leaving.

    Professional greeting by hosts upon arrival. Immediate seating honoring our reservation. Immediate service with menus and drink orders. Given time to review the menu. Appetizers and dinner started flowing in a reasonable amount of time. Meat was cooked as requested - medium, medium rare and one well. Ribeye, NY strip, and short ribs were great choices. Two of our party enjoyed the Branzino fish. Sides were very good, asparagus, fries, au gratin potatoes, mushrooms, but creamed spinach needed less salt. Service was attentive through the meal but -my pet peeve - I would like the server to take my payment and return with change or the credit card receipt, don't ask if I will be needing change, I know to leave a tip.

    Everything we had was outstanding. The only criticism is that the back of the restaurant under the blackboard is so packed with tables it made what was otherwise an awesome dinner uncomfortable at times. The staff literally had to pull out the tables to let people into their seats. This could probably be solved simply by removing one two seater table. There is nothing like an adult having to ask for help to get up and go to the bathroom. Keep in mind I am not a large man (5'10" 195 lbs). That being said, the bone in NY Strip (rare) was possibly the best steak I have ever had in my life. Everything was cooked perfectly from the lobster cobb salad and pork belly app (on the specials menu) to the Steaks which both my wife and I had.

    BLT Steak was great! The filet I had was perfect, although I wish they offered a smaller size than just the 12 oz., which is too large for me. My husband had the dover sole and was full as well. Portions are very generous, so come with an appetite! I did add to my OpenTable reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary. We were surprised with some small sweets on a dish with Happy Anniversary written on it. A nice touch to a splendid dinner.
