There were eight in our party. We were fortunate enough to dine in a private room which had windows allowing us a spectacular view of the hotel lobby and bar. Our waiter was knowledgeable and very personable. From the appetizers to the desserts, the food and it's presentation (especially the clothesline bacon appetizer) was top notch! Overall this dining experience was awesome.

Literally THE BEST food I have ever eaten. EVER. This is the second time my husband and I visited the restaurant and both visits were beyong our expectations. The food is insanely delicious, the atmosphere is the best we have seen, and the service is impeccable. Anyone visiting DC needs to eat here. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

First of all, President Trump should be congratulated for building such a gorgeous hotel out of an ugly, dumpy, old post office. The hotel itself is amazing. Of course, the fantastic food and service go along with this first class hotel. The lunch was amazing; and I am from New York which has, by far, the best restaurants in the world.

My biggest compliment is that BLT Prime would be a great success in Manhattan!!!

Great meal, great service, incredible ambiance ! Don't miss BLT Prime ! We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner on May 14th. Started with shellfish and sparkling, no one even had a steak (although I am sure they are excellent like everything else). Bison shortribs on polenta- wonderful, salt brick chicken - excellent, sea bass - best my wife has ever had . Fine wines, and inventive delicious desserts. We expected this restaurant to be very good, but were overwhelmed at the ambiance and the view over the amazing lobby and the soaring atrium and clocktower. I would give a 7 out of 5 for ambiance and service. We eat in the finest restaurants in the World. This is one of them.

The manager, James Murphy, came over and gave me his card and shook hands just as soon as we sat down. Offered to help make our dining experience the best. What a nice welcome:)
The service was excellent, as was the food. This is our 4th time dining at the dc location and we have dined in the New York location, as well.
Bravo, BLT Prime!

I loved it! It’s beautiful. My server was lovely. The options in the buffet were extensive. Everything was of great quality. Everyone was very friendly. The place was super clean. It’s a shame I can only eat so much. After the bottomless mimosas and plate of sushi and breakfast foods ranging from French toast to bacon and chocolate covered strawberries with macaroons, etc. I couldn’t eat anymore. Also had a tasty cappuccino. Wish I lived closer so I could visit again.

Great location - ask for a table next to rail so you can people watch. Food is good, but service is spotty. An abundance of servers, but food is often delivered to wrong table and you might have to make requests several times for any deviation or extras needed at the table. Drinks are sloooow to come and sometimes forgotten. Still would recommended and we will return.

I must say my wife and I truly enjoyed our dinner at BLT Prime. The service was top notch and the food was absolutely delicious. I can honestly say I've never had a better steak in my life. The Octopus, Grilled & Tiradito Style appetizer as well as the "Clothesline" Candied Bacon were phenomenal.

My wife ordered the Scottish Salmon and I the Filet Mignon bone-in, wet aged prepared medium and married it with a glass of Meritage, Trump, Monticello, Virginia, 2015; we both loved our entrees.

We finished off the night with delicious dessert. I ordered the Caramelized Apple Tart and made the entire plate disappear it was that good. My wife had the Chocolate Fondant Soufflé Cake and she loved it as well.

The restaurant atmosphere was calm and relaxing. The view of the Trump Hotel lobby was beautiful and the feeling was lively.

All in all we loved our experience and we really can't wait to come back again!

Great food unsurpassed in excellence was made most enjoyable by exceptional outstanding service. Trump International Hotel location was the ultimate in ambiance and perfect setting for any occasion or celebration regardless of personal political persuasions.

I guess I expected more from place. Don't get me wrong, it was great. The incredible hotel (Trump International) brought it up a couple notches. The food was just....OK. I ordered the bone-in filet, and I've had better...consistently around the country. My wife loved her salmon, though!

We had dinner and the food was fantastic. However, when it came to the dessert I ordered a creme brulee and it was garnished with mint and raspberries. One of the raspberries had mold on the end. I removed all the garnished from my dessert and just ate the creme burlee. Having a fantastic meal and then serviced a moldy berry at the end of the meal kind of made the event a little tarnished.

Didn't really care to much of our host constantly walking the tables and scanning everyone's plate to see how soon they would be done. It made the experience very uncomfortable. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if he would ask, 'How is everything/are you enjoying your night?'

When the review asks the question about the noise level - My answer is energetic - let me make it clear, that the restaurant sits above the main lobby/bar and is open. The noise of the lower floor travels up to the main dinning area of the restaurant. Energetic wouldn't MY word, but very loud and bad acoustics would.

The service, beginning with the valet, the doormen, the host, the sommelier and the wait staff was just impeccable. Couldn't have asked for more. The food was very well prepared and delicious. The wines, although impressive, a bit pricey. The only disappointment of the evening was not getting to see our beloved President and First Lady....we are huge fans and supporters!

The Porterhouse steak and sides (Mushroom and Brussels sprouts) were excellent. However, the popovers, which is my wife's favorites , the color was very dark. They seemed to be over-baked or re-heated.
