Nice first experience.
Busy Friday evening, service attentive, eager to please. Food was very good, only recommendation would be, don't serve the entire asparagus stock, it gets too woody. Missed table cloths, for an expensive meal, and overall great experience, it would have added to the evening. Would definitely go back as well as try othe BLT locations.

Great as Always . . . Again
June 1, 6:45 pm, Reservation for 4. I've now dined at BLT Waikiki over a dozen times, and I keep going back, because the food and service always are excellent, and everything is just right. From the complimentary pate' and unbelievably wonderful popovers, to the excellent appetizers, main courses, and desserts, BLT earns 5-stars. I ate a terrific Hanger Steak, which was delicious and cooked to order. One of us had the super short ribs, which are the best around. The ladies had different fish dishes, and they were enthusiastic about them. This is a very special restaurant.

My mother and I arrived early and had to wait about 20 minutes for our reservation. While we were waiting, the very dapper Beverage Director brought over two glasses of the Roederer sparkling rose wine, which was a very nice gesture. We were seated at an outside table in a seemingly closed section; however the service was fantastic. Our server and team of expediters were extremely personable and attentive. We both decided to order from the Blackboard Special and got a true tasting of the menu. Food was delicious and plentiful. We were so full by dessert time - but it was just too good to resist! Overall lovely experience; however the ambiance seemed lacking. I expected a different level of decor and sophistication.

Great steak great staff
Wa is. Waikiki for nine nights ate at BLT four times. Need. I say more

The fireworks on Friday appear
The steak was very delicious. The person with sufficient medium rare one of being medium and ordering is right just.
Those who are asking for the high-class and quiet meal need to keep in mind that it is slightly casual.

Went for my birthday . My husband and I had been before and the menu may have changed a little. We got the porterhouse yummy! The blue cheese tater tots should be passed up they were not tasty at all. Everything else was yummy, like the lobster Cobb salad and chocolate peanut mousse dessert.

This was our first time to
This was our first time to BLT Steak, but we will definitely be back. While "hotel food" can oftentimes be a big disappointment, BLT Steak was a notable exception. It was much better than we expected it to be. It was a tad on the noisy side, but that is really the only negative.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tasty, but over priced
The food was wonderfully prepared, and the service was good. Table was not quite ready at the reserved time, but only about five minutes late. Options to eat inside or out, so diners have their choice. At a grand total of just a tad bit over $200 for two, I expected better finishing touches on the entire experience, though. Attention to the little things seemed secondary to turning over tables.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service
As always, BLT provides fantastic service along with delicious food. The steaks are to die for!
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
After reading mixed reviews, we didn't know what to expect. We were a little disappointed at first because we were seated outside & weren't given a choice but thankfully there was a slight breeze & not a lot of direct sunlight from the setting sun. Our servers were friendly, helpful, & did not rush our dining experience. The complimentary popovers were served warm & were tasty. We were all happy with our food selections & enjoyed everything. We will recommend to others & come back ourselves.

great atmosphere with easy food
I loved the place, it was my first and ihosted 2 business from east coast. They loved the place but most of all the atmosphere. I will definately return. Great dining room fun bar for quick solo dinner. Great place.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
the steak is delicious. but, inside of restrant is very noisy.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always great to dine here .... so many positives from huge portions to friendly staff, very accommodating. Parking very easy for Waikiki. Menu has something for everyone .... tough to do but try to save room for the chocolate peanut butter dessert - it's out of this world! As were their fresh oysters! And the steaks cooked to perfect temp!
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
blt waikiki has excellent service. my husband is very attentive to customer service and was very happy with the service provided to us. he now ranks blt at the top of our steakhouse choices. it was pricey, but portions were generous. this is our new restaurant choice to celebrate our special occasions. a kids menu would make it even better.

BLT Steak - Waikiki
We go to BLT whenever we feel like having great food and being taken care of which happens quite often. Complimentary chicken liver pâté with toast and huge popovers are always fresh and delicious. Good oyster selections depending on season and your arrival time. Some varieties may be tiny so ask the server or, better yet, go to the cold seafood bar to see for yourself. I always stop at the seafood bar on my way in prior to being seated to see what's available and to reserve my oysters if quantities are low. Not to be missed is the lobster salad which can be shared by up to three diners or eaten as an entree. Tried all the different cuts of steaks from hanger, bone-in ribeye, Porterhouse, or special cuts featured. They are all good!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really great service and great
Really great service and great food! Will definitely be coming back and recommending to my friends!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the fourth time eating at BLT's and it continues to be outstanding with service second to none
The food is always great.

If I want to go to a high-end
If I want to go to a high-end steak house again, I still prefer Ruth's Chris. The ambience was less than exciting. Chintzy cheap-looking fake flowers on the tables. The music was 60's and 70's which on some occassions is fun but it was very loud and not elegant or relaxing at all.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome place to go
BLT Steakhouse is always our go to for steaks! All staff were friendly and attentive. Drinks were filled, food came to us timed and cooked perfectly. They made our anniversary memorable and perfect end to the evening. We didn't feel rushed or placed in a lower priority of service when the restaurant was filled - It is a big deal to us to feel like we are all there eating and we are all customers no matter where we are from. We previously brought our children to eat there a few times and the staff is always friendly with them. THANK YOU FOR A GREAT EVENING!!
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
the steaks are the best that i have ever tried yet.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM

Excellent service. Staff were very accommodating and knowledgable of the menu. Ambiance was great. For great food quality and presentation, price is quite reasonable.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything we ordered was perfect. Their complimentary popovers were really good. Wagyu steak and filet were tender. Love the sauces on the side. Service was exceptional. Very friendly and attentive staff.. Definitely coming back for more
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
The braised short rib and
The braised short rib and the rib eye steak was excellent! And the lychee panne cotta and the bread pudding desserts complimented our meal!!! Loved the surprise anniversary writing on our dessert plate. Made our night much more memorable!!! (mahalo to my cousin who told them)

Better than your average steakhouse
When we visit Oahu we always have dinner at BLT Steak. We discovered it through Honolulu Magazine's Hale Aina awards a few years ago and have enjoyed all of our meals there. For appetizers, there is a delicious tomato salad with a creamy bacon dressing and a great ahi tartare (they will hold the avocado if you ask). For entrees, it is mostly steak as you might imagine, but there is also a good pork chop with a parmeasan crust. The restaurant offers a wide variety of sauces for the steaks. All sides are ala carte, but there is a nice assortment including barbecue Kahuku corn with bacon, hash browns, onion rings, etc.
8/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
Went there for ou 14th Anniversary. Was one of the eat dining experiences I have ever had. Would recommend to anyone for a special occasion!
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a favorite
Fell in love with BLT Steak at the DC location. The Honolulu location did not disappoint! My fav dishes from DC (tuna tartare, popovers!) were complimented nicely by locally sourced gems.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have never been here before but I was very impressed. The food was fantastic, the service was impeccable and the restaurant itself was fantastic. Great meal, I will definitely be back!
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
skirt is good!!
I came several times, but ate a skirt for the first time this time.
It was soft and was very delicious.
As for the dessert, dessert of the hazelnut chocolate is recommended.
I want to go to this restaurant again.

Waiter who have worked in
Waiter who have worked in charge was great.
By wife is the same Japanese, it was very friendly.
We apologize for the inconvenience child to cry, but it was able to spend the last night of Hawaii pleasant wine and great delicious meal, with the appropriate service.
Please give my best regards to him.
I also would like to ask next year.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I can speak English a little. This restaurant staff told me about menu and food easy Englisy. I had dinner alone but I didn't feel lonely.When I said "your recomend?" they told me their recomend very kindly. Beer, salad,bread,main dish beef and wine were all delicious.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was the Best
I've dined at BLT Waikiki many times and while I always ADORE the food - in the past I"ve found the service to be inconsistent - with the waitstaff being a bit pretentious. We sat down at our first table and it was uneven to the point of spilling water - the hostess seemed bothered by our request for a new table. I simply reached over to the identical table next to us and said how about this one - we were moved although it seemed begrudgingly. That initial impression was wiped out by our fantastic server - his name was Ty - he was genuine, attentive, helpful - everything you want in a server when spending over $100 a head for dinner. I'll ask for him again - well done Ty. You alone are what will keep me coming back.

Greatest Steak in Hawaii
Great service and for the money, the best steakhouse in Hawaii, combining a blend of wife-friendly entrees such as oysters. Additionally, the staff is very friendly and Andrew, the Manager, gets the meaning of extraordinary service.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
BLT is the best Steakhouse and one of the best dining experiences in Honolulu. I have never had a bad experience and always impress my business guests. Well done again!
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Spectacular food and service!
This is my third time dining here, and each time my experience gets better and better! Our server, Chris is so knowledgeable and definitely sold us on the special's of the night like the Carpaccio salad over arugula greens! So ono! We came to celebrate a birthday, so on top of receiving the complimentary brownie bites and the lychee panna cotta with pomegranate sorbet we ordered, we got a peanut butter chocolate mousse with banana ice cream as well! Our food came out in a timely manner and tasted delicious! Definitely coming back for another celebratory dinner.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took my boyfriend here to celebrate his birthday. This is the second time coming here and the service and food are outstanding! Would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friend and I had gone there to celebrate our 24th year friendship anniversary and we had a spectacular time. The food and service was great.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to BLT for my husband's 30th birthday. We found the salads and side dishes to be mediocre, but the steaks were delicious and the service was excellent. Desserts were the best part of the meal. It seemed a little overpriced for what we got, but we had a great experience so we may return someday.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
All staff who have charge of our table was in contact with us in a courteous attitude with friendly. The quantity of cooking and temperature were proper and the timing provided with them was also suitable.. I thought , BLT is the best steak restaurant in Honolulu.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The incomparable BLT
I've stopped counting how many times I've dined at the BLT Waikiki, located on the street-level of The Trump Hotel. It's wonderful in every way, and was again, for a dinner for two. My wife had the Butterfish, and I had the Hanger Steak, and both were great. We also shared the corn and hash browns, which are excellent. BLT competes with Hy's Steakhouse and other 5-star restaurants in Waikiki, and BLT is just as good. The popovers are the best I've ever had, and they are complimentary and served after you order. If you're a fan of short ribs, BLT has the best. I could go on and on, but I'll stop here.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Birthday Made Special!
BLT Steak Waikiki exceeded our expectations! Our booth was comfortable and the wait staff extremely attentive and helped to make my wife's birthday a very special evening. We ordered four appetizers (crabcake, roasted beets, Bibb lettuce salad, and grilled double cut bacon). Each was beautifully presented and a taste treat! A must try is the double cut bacon. Be sure and ask to have the chef slice it for you prior to serving. The popovers were a home run! Since we filled up on the appetizers, our table of three just needed to order two entrees (14 oz ribeye and crispy whole fish Cantonese style, and rice and baked potato). The ehu was amazing! One of a kind! Desserts of crepe souffle and PB chocolate mousse were heavenly!
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the place in Waikiki if you want a great steak, a good bottle of wine, and the best pop-overs!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another Fantastic Dining Experience
On this trip to Honolulu, my wife and I dined twice at BLT, located in the Trump Waikiki Hotel. I already commented on the wonderful time we had the first time on this trip. On this second round, we were a party of 4 on a Sunday evening at 6:00. I had requested a quieter area in which to dine, and we were accommodated beyond our expectations, being seated in one of the semi-private rooms that handles only three parties. Everything was great again. I've stopped counting how many times I've dined at BLT Waikiki. It's the best.
10/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Everything was good except Japanese reception lady. She was like she hated Japanese tourists and didn't listen to us at all!!!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Located in the Trump Hotel, this place is a short walk from the Hale Koa/Hilton area. Reservations are a must as the place filled up fast. The wait staff was very busy and efficient. I tried to see if my water glass would ever get lower than half full. It never did. They started us off with some chicken liver pate. Very good. They then brought out some pop-overs, which as another reviewer put it, "are the size of monkey heads". My wife and I then ordered the bone-in rib-eye and shared some jalapeno mashed potatoes. Unfortunately, there was no room for dessert which I'm sure is equally as good as the other courses. This is a great restaurant in an area with a lot of other great restaurants. Check it out.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
An Enjoyable Evening
Food is technically sound. Special kudos on the scallop ceviche. Servers know their strengths; initially we had a server who was not wine conversant but a second server took over seamlessly and the evening went very smoothly afterward. This was a special occasion and we found the whole evening quite enjoyable and we appreciated the special touches shown by the staff.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
We went in a big group for
We went in a big group for my brother's birthday and had a baby-in-stroller in the party. They put us at one of the outside tables so we didn't feel in the way with the baby parked on the side. Plus the outside table had a more private room feel and was a lot quieter due to the location. It was great placement for our party. We could even walk around a bit when the baby wanted to carried and walked.
The food was FANTASTIC! Everyone was very pleased with their choices and because we were a larger group, we were able to order and try a good variety. According to the travelling foodie members of the party, the lamb was even a close second to a similar dish they had at a Michelin star restaurant in Rome--so even THEY were satisfied.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
FANTASTIC food and Service...however music was somewhat inappropriate for a fine dining experience. Mentioned it to management and they said they had no control over what's played. Someone up the chain of command needs to do something about it. Special Thanks to they way they "honor" veterans on Veteran's Day...THANK YOU!
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a great meal!
I have been here many times, never does it disappoint. This night we had both items from the standard menu and their Blackboard (specials) menu. Food is fresh, made to order and always perfect.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
My fav for steak
The service is great, you will never have a half empty water glass. It's never just your waiter but an army of people to bring food out take plates away and keep you glass full. The black board menu of the night is always the way to go for $70.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a very nice experience.
We had a very nice experience. The food and service was great and we ate so much I could barely walk out. I couldn't stop cause it was so good. I made reservations and told them we were celebrating our anniversary and they wished us a happy anniversary and compt us desert. Very pleasent service, I would reccomend this to everyone.
