BLT Prime by David Burke Ratings and Reviews
They forgot to make my wife's food and were nonchalant about it. Their perturbation at the fact we had two children with us was palpable. The shift manager who alternated between verbally abusing the wait staff and texting also made the experience surreal on top of unpleasant. The place reeks of incompetence and tarnishes the brand.
We came on Sunday for my husband's 60th birthday. We are Trump supporters and wanted to see the hotel and dine. Dinner was too pricy for us so we decided on brunch. We did expect better service from our waiter, he was only okay. The hanger steak with our eggs may be tasty but had a lot of marble in it making it difficult to cut and eat. Overall it was a good experience.
Disappointing is what comes to mind when I think of meal here. I was so looking forward to eating here, and unfortunately on this night it did not meet my expectations. The bartenders at the lower level bar are outstanding and the Manhattan Tea Party is must have drink.
Our server was inattentive all night,while I understand that when you have larger parties they tend to suck up your time, but you must not discount your two person tables.The steaks were good but nothing great. The octopus was most likely the best I have ever had, and I will go back to sit at the bar and eat that.
The Sommelier Dimitry was fantastic,took time to understand what I wanted and offered several options to chose from. He was the highlight of our service.
There are many options for great steak in DC, and on this night BLT Prime was not one of them.
One of the best dining experiences ever! Zach was our server and added personal touches at every turn. It was a birthday celebration which he made sure to acknowledge with complimentary dessert and candles. The food was excellent. Our guests had the Porterhouse, New York Strip and Salmon as well as a variety of appetizers. Every dish was perfection!
Fitz, Michael and Matt down in the bar mixed delicious cocktails and kept us entertained with their friendliness and witty banter.
Can not wait to return
The setting in the trump hotel is amazing. The service is top notch but felt it a little pretentious at first.
Great menu selections from traditional steak choices to other creative entrees and sides for the table. Creative desserts too
The price is high so plan accordingly.
Third time here in two months. Celebrated our 10 year dating anniversary, New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day. This is our go to now for special occasions. The only place I’m ok with spending $150+ on dinner. Food is absolutely amazing and there’s something for everyone. Can’t wait to come back for Easter!
The lobby bar is lovey and we are usually a fan of BLT, but for the first time ever the popovers weren’t piping hot and while the sauce on my sole was spectacular, the fish itself was over cooked. My husband’s fillet was just mediocre and we needed to ask twice for things we had requested. I get the impression this restaurant caters more to tourists.
Overall the inside of Trump Hotel and BLT which overlooks the main lobby and Bar are beautiful and comfortable feeling. Unfortunately with a party of six people we were stuck into a corner facing away from the view and literally next to a service elevator. Service was very good. Food was a mixed bag. $120 seafood tower was a waste of money, and everything else was fairly average.
We had a tremendous dinner at this fantastic restaurant! It was a huge success! Outstanding service! The restaurant overlooks the hotel lounge, beyond which, diners can see the four big, beautiful walls of this hotel which rise up for several stories. On one of these walls hangs our great American flag. Whoever bought the building clearly made a fantastic deal!
The staff are terrific! Very high energy! Every one of them is a winner! Huge!
The best gourmet dinners are made at the BLT Prime! Whether you're ordering a well-done New York strip steak, or the hipster fries, you're guaranteed to win bigly with every bite.
This was our third visit to BLT Prime by David Burke and each visit was spectacular. The restaurant atmosphere is spectacular. The staff -- from the check-in/seating hosts, the servers and their supporting staff members were impeccable. It is a rare occasion that my husband and I visit this caliber of establishment, but it is by far one of our favorite restaurants and we look for an excuse to justify the expense of the visit. BLT Prime is far outside of our comfort zone price wise but the food and experience make the visit well worth it. My husband and I took our son and his wife to dinner to celebrate my son's 30th birthday and it was more than memorable. The Assistant General Manager stopped by our table a few times -- the evening was magical. Thank you to all who made our visit nothing less than amazing.
I can't say enough about our experience. Our table overlooked the lobby which is spectacular in itself. We were treated like VIPs and my girlfriend received a cake pop tree for her birthday. I highly recommend the Wagyu ribeye. Superb!
A once in a lifetime experience, every day at Trump International and BLT Prime. Of course we met POTUS the next evening so it was pretty special experience.
Excellent meal and wonderful evening. Welcome staff was more interested in cell phone than customer; however, the first impression became less important as the wait and serve staff were very attentive. The menu was refreshingly unique with fabulous presentation and excellent tastes to back-up unique menu choices. Truly one of the best meals we have experienced during many visits to D. C. BLT Prime by David Burke location allows for a wonderful view of the Hotel lobby and allows an interesting perspective of the internal characteristics of this beautiful building.
The steak was over cooked and they placed us at a terrible table and we had to ask to be moved. Beautiful restaurant but needs a little fine tuning for that price. We have eaten at the other BLT in DC several times and it is much better.
The restaurant and hotel are beautiful.
Server Coordinator's voice/conversations with the help was intrusive early on. Our appetizers were brought out at the same time but my Oysters Rockefeller was lukewarm. Dish returned. By the time a replacement was brought, my wife had finished her lobster. Best Cowboy Steak/rib-eye that I have had in a long time. Complimentary dessert was on the bill but we had to ask/wait for it. First disappointing experience there.
Overall our time at Trump International was great. However, the moment our food was placed in front of us an alarm sounded and they had to clear the building. Which was done impeccably and without creating alarm. As soon as we stepped outside we were cleared to return to the building. A manager came by our table to explain that a frozen pipe was the cause of the evacuation. My only complaint is that no offer was made for our inconvenience; no drink, no offer for new plates with hot food, nothing. We just would have expected more from a five star destination.
Went to BLT Prime for dinner at the Trump International Hotel for the first time on Friday, February 2nd to celebrate my 25th birthday with my mother. Thank you BLT Prime by David Burke for making our visit so enjoyable. We both ordered the smoked salmon carpaccio, celebrated with a round of drinks and for dessert, we shared an apple tartlet a la mode. I forgot the name of our server, but she provided some of the finest service we have ever received. BLT Prime is a must when visiting Washington D.C. for the first time. We will definitely come back again for our next visit to the D.C. :-) 5 stars all the way!!! <3
