We had a great meal with superb service from Michael! James Murphy epitomed all that is expected in a prestigious fine dining experience. Mixed drinks and dessert were particularly noteworthy as they ended the meal and style. Thanks for a memorable experience.

I took my wife for her birthday on a recommendation from a guest who came into my restaurant. I was thoroughly impressed from start to finish. Andy made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived and James, their GM, stopped by a couple of times to ensure we were enjoying ourselves. Cam, our server, was very personable, professional and knowledgeable. I am pretty tough in my ratings, but I have nothing but high praise for BLT Prime. David has put together a great team and I would highly recommend BLT Prime to my guests as well as friends and family.

I had read great things about this and other BLT locations, so I tried this one out on an afternoon when I craved a good classic steak. I was not disappointed. My NY strip was cooked to perfection, delicious in its own juices. The creamed spinach had a heavenly nutmeg seasoning. Sweet and simple meal, in a grand luxurious setting. The waiters were friendly and attentive, yet not hovering obnoxiously, as is often the case in other places. Now I can’t wait to return; will drop a very big hint to my husband, for our upcoming anniversary!

Every time I have a big client in town, I know where to take them. From the moment you’re greeted at Prime to the last bite of dessert you’re taken care of by a knowledgeable, expert staff. Fantastic Tomahawk Ribeyes for the table and wine recommendations from the somm elevated the night into overdrive. I always feel like my needs are taken care of whenever I stop in, whether it’s a big client dinner or drinks at the bar. Always top notch, thank you again gentlemen!!

Absolutely amazing food. The bacon appetizer was a huge hit and the New York strip and Filet were cooked to perfection and delicious. Even the dessert the peanut butter chocolate mousse was so good I did something I have never done before, I ordered a second one!!

We have eaten at 4 of the finest restaurants in DC and next to Filomena this was our favorite meal yet.

I was in DC for a meeting with White House Cabinet Secretaries and was surprised by a quick visit with VP Pence. In keeping with that theme, I booked a table for 8 at BLT Prime for dinner. It exceeded our expectations in the atmosphere and meal/drink selection. The icing on this wonderful cake was the special attention to our every need by head waiter, Tim. He went above and beyond to make sure our dining experience was truly exceptional. This is one for the memory book !

We were very excited to dine at BLT Prime in the Trump Hotel, as part of our visit to DC this week. Unfortunately the fantasy far outweighed the reality. The experience came completely off the rails in every possible way you could imagine. When you order a $100 steak, it needs to be 100% perfect. It was not. When you are expecting 4 people to drop $1000 on a special dinner experience, it needs to be amazing. That never happened. Denny’s does a better job than what we experienced at BLT Prime.
To their credit, they agreed that they completely did not deliver, and comped one of our steaks and the appetizers. Plus they sincerely apologized and brought us some wonderful port, which was nice. In addition, the Clothesline Candied Bacon and complimentary popovers were off the charts.
However, this was not enough to affect my rating of this interesting and underwhelming experience.
Fix your kitchen issues and up your game to match the prices - you are better than this!

This was a family vacation to Washington DC and I have been once before on a business dinner so I decided to take my wife and kids just for the pure spectacle that is the Trump Hotel, but I did not expect what was probably one of the best meals the four of us have ever had together. Was it expensive? Yes. Was it worth every dime? Without question. The clothesline bacon was incredible and the tuna tartar was even better.. I had the bone in filet mignon and my wife had the crabcakes. One of my daughters had the chicken and the other had a steak off of, to my surprise, a kids menu. Our waitress was incredible and recommended a wine that was so good will be registering for their wine list online when we get home.

Perfect Evening!!

My mother & I both agreed that our meal at BLT Prime was one of the best we have ever had. We started out with the candied bacon & were amazed at how great it was. The pan seared halibut dish was one of the best fish meals I have ever had. My mother had the NY Strip, which came a la carte, so we split the mashed potatoes & asparagus sides. The asparagus was unreal! The atmosphere is great, with minimal noise around 6-8 pm. We had wonderful service & the staff was very attentive. I will be going back to BLT Prime every trip to DC.
