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.

    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.

    Having been here twice for lunch, we can attest to the high quality of the food and the service. Although we were 15 minutes early for our reservation, the hostess kindly seated us. Our salad and burgers (not to mention the fries) were so delicious. We'll be back again for sure!

    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.
