BLT Prime by David Burke

We were 4. And we placed at a round table for 6 in the corner (I knew then something was not going to be good) - the service from the start was poor. The waiter was non communicating- The pop overs never were coming. They kept telling us soon. Drink replenishing was very slow - we had to go get the servers - I had to get up and go talk to a manager Gracie - who did jump in and did her best to make it right. A free round of drinks. Shrimp app and a dessert. So it finished on a positive note. But overall for the prices and reputation they must be better.
Date night. Food was superior. Ambiance was just right.
Excellent food and service! We will definitely go back.
Took way over an hour for my food....after being told it was coming right out by my server and a manager it still took 15mins more for the food. I saw another table that were having the same experience yet their waiter and management provided them with lots of attention/apologies and comped items. Finally after the food came out and I was about to leave a manager came back to me and comped my meal. I would NEVER go back to this restaurant. Not even sure now if I am interested in trying the other location either.
Went for Valentine’s Day. We were told the food would be slow due to the volume—it was actually reasonably quick and quite delicious. The service, on the other hand, was abysmal. Our waiter spent 80% of his time at one table having a conversation and neglected our table almost completely (as well as the rest in his section). We ordered a bottle of champagne that took nearly 45 minutes to get and then could not track anyone down to refill our glasses (the bottle was stored away from the table or we would have just refilled ourselves). I honestly got far better service from a recent trip to Applebee’s. Super cool atmosphere and good food, but the whole experience was overshadowed and totally ruined by the terrible service. I would not recommend this place at all.
Valentine’s day at BLT Prime was amazing. It started with a wonderful popover and ended with a red rose! It was a lovely evenness with my loved one.
Top to bottom 5 stars!!!! Ambiance, service, food, drinks, all of it ... highly recommend!!
Everyone in the Trump hotel was warm, accommodating and genuinely interested in our enjoyment and experience! Never experienced that before in a hotel or restaurant. The BLT restaurant has some amazing employees like Gracie, the Sommelier, Billy our wait staff and Hamza. Keep doing what you are doing!!!!
We had a wonderful time at BLT. The staff was terrific and very personable. We loved our sommelier Gracie, who was beautiful and full of southern charm.
The food was fantastic as usual!
President Trump acquittal!!
Disappointed. Wine service was amateur at best . Waitress was cold and impersonal. Great view within a historical location. Can’t recommend.
Hospitality was top notch with Gracie and Jeff. Our evening was perfect with family and friends. Food and drinks were perfectly paired. We are looking forward to our next visit. Thanks
Went here with my mother and grandmother and we were treated so well. They celebrated their birthdays and it was very special. Such a great restaurant. Definitely coming back!
Food was fantastic and service was even better. The staff accommodated the surprise birthday and pulled out the works. Made the birthday girl feel like a royalty. I tip my hat off to these people. I will be here again!
This is our favorite place to dine!
Our favorite place to celebrate. Great food and service every single time
We've been eyeing to try BLT for some time now and finally went on January 30 to celebrate my husband's birthday. The place is beautiful, service is impeccable, and the food (steak) was cooked to perfection. For drinks, my husband ordered Chianti and I had a mix drink and ordered an octopus dish as our appetizer. For the main course, my husband had NY strip and I had filet mignon. For the side, I ordered broccoli which was more Asian dish than what I expected. I would have love to see broccolini on their menu as this goes very well with steak. For dessert we ordered chocolate fondant souffle cake to share but since I mentioned that it is a birthday celebration when I made the reservation in open table, we were given a complimentary chocolate and peanut butter mousse with a sparkle/candle (something unexpected which we appreciate so much). Both are decadent. It is also worth mentioning that our brewed coffee was perfect robust but not bitter and temperature (hot) was to our liking.
Although we would like to come back, it may not be that soon because as retirees we have to be conscious on where our spending goes and budget our pension wisely.
Nevertheless, I would highly recommend BLT because the food is excellent and service is impeccable.
I visited for a business dinner. Inside the Trump hotel, the setting for the restaurant is pleasant. Drinks can be had in the lobby bar, and the dining room overlooks the bar but is private enough.
Service was intrusive and poorly timed. The waiter intruded on conversation four times during the meal. Pacing was poor, with a too short soup course intruded upon by the mains.
Food was exceptional. Kitchen is clearly the highlight here. Steak was prepared perfectly - a truly rare steak without being a dripping mess. Salmon and spinach were presented exactly as ordered. Sides were suitably oversized as befits a steakhouse lately. Wine list is deep, though marked up more than other local steakhouses.
The food and service are always excellent.
Fair service but excellent food. Eggs Benedict was awesome. We had reservations for brunch but felt like they were under staffed.
Another wonderful experience from service to our meal. Felt welcomed by everyone who we encountered from check in to management. Beautiful views and a relaxing romantic dining experience for my birthday
The food and atmosphere were fabulous. The filet, black truffle risotto and lobster appetizer were perfect. The espresso martini was also great! Our table overlooked the bar/lobby and the view could not have been better. The decor was outstanding.
The service was 2nd to none! We had a large party and was taken care of like we the only customers of the evening! Food was awesome.
Everything about Trump International DC and both our breakfasts and dinner at BLT was off the charts amazing!!!
This is a fine restaurant each time we were here the attention to detail was perfect and if your table is overlooking the lobby then spectacular. The WOW bacon appetizer the salad and the steaks all cooked to perfection. This a mandatory stop every time we r in DC.
Very difficult accessing due to high security &
We had an absolutely amazing dinner. The food with absolutely fantastic. We will without return for another meal. A MUST place to eat.
Excellent service with attention to details!
Outstanding service & food!
A beautiful venue, some outstanding food and some very good food, but everyone in our party of four was pleased overall.
Steaks were terrible and the wine was extremely overpriced - the mark up on the bottle of Austin Hope was more than double the mark up at any other steak house in which I have ordered it.
