My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at BLT Prime. The food was delicious, the staff were wonderful and the view overlooking the beautiful lobby fun. I highly recommend the experience.

Pre-dinner drinks at the bar started off a very good evening at this top quality restaurant at the Trump International Hotel.

Great table on the second floor overlooking the main bar and lounge of the hotel. The staff were very attentive and knowledgeable, especially the wine waiter who was happy to spend time explaining how and where some of the more expensive wines were made and came from. The NY Strip and Filet Mignon were cooked perfectly and deliciously soft and tender. We were not too keen on the creamed spinach as it was a little too garlicky. No room for dessert but they brought us some lovely complimentary petit fours.

When the bill came they had missed off the bar drinks , so we told them, which they very much appreciated, so much so that when they returned with the amended bill they advised us that they had not charged us for the spinach and the bar drinks were on the house due to our honesty, can’t complain about that !

Overall a great place, friendly, polite staff, delicious food and great wine. And then to top it all off the hotel doorman called their limousine to take us back to our hotel for free. Fantastic.

Provide a round table that was very cramped for eight adults. When asked about a totally open table that would readily accommodate us, manager had attitude. Reluctantly, he switched us which seemed to take forever. Did not sit well with our guests/clients as they were standing around waiting. The wine steward did a tremendous job. Service was otherwise slow. Hopefully, it was an off night. I would definitely try BLT Prime another time in the future.

I had the strip and it was really chewy and over cooked. Instead of fat both sides of the steak had grizzle I was surprised that it hadn’t been trimmed better. Plus the fries were limp and soggy. My client had the filet and it was excellent. The wait service was decent though it seemed like they wanted to clear the table as fast as possible while we were trying to conduct business.

Our first experience at BLT Prime by David Burke was a wonderful Dinner with friends. The meals was amazing so we decided we would come back for a business lunch. The meal was amazing, the service 5 star and the setting was perfect. We can’t wait to come back on our next visit to DC.

Steak was raw, Mac and cheese was bland, and the sautéed spinach was blended to mush. But at least it was over priced.

This was our first time dining here. The food is was outstanding and the Dover Sole was the best I’ve ever had.
The Assistant General Manager Jim made sure everything was perfect and the Sommelier Gracie knew wines like the pro she is! Can’t wait to return, this is my new favorite restaurant!!

Great experience from the moment we arrived. We’re early for our reservation so hung out at the bar for a bit. Bar tenders were super friendly and the entire staff were very accommodating. Great place for a special occasion.

We were there for breakfast. We had a party of 5 and everyone enjoyed their order, especially the 2 orders of clothesline bacon that was prepared table-side.

BLT Prime is my favorite spot for special occasions. We celebrated our anniversary with my daughter -- she had to eat somewhere. We started with cocktails -- a classic Martini for me; the ladies each enjoyed The Honeydew List -- gin, melon liquor, and cucumber salt foam. Quite delish, but I didn't catch the name related to our wedding anniversary until I spoke the order out loud. We couldn't resist the Clothesline Bacon. And the cheese popovers are a favorite. My wife enjoyed the petite filet mignon. I opted for the Kansas City Strip. Both were cooked perfectly. My medium-rare steak was seared with a crisp carbonized crust that added flavor and texture while sealing in a juicy, hot-center. The beef cut like butter and nearly melted in my mouth. I haven't enjoyed a steak like that in months. My wife's filet was a similar treat. My daughter enjoyed the lamb shanks. Sauteed asparagus and Crazy Corn complemented our entrees. We ordered ice cream and sorbet for dessert and the staff surprised us with a chocolate-peanut butter souffle with table-side sparkler. A perfect sweet ending. We enjoyed the evening so much we didn't want to end, so we stayed for cocktails in the Benjamin Bar downstairs.

My third time dining here and it does not disappoint. It was quiet for a Sunday, and the noise from the bar was no existent. The food was great, went with the Tomahawk steak and it was cooked perfectly. A truly great dinner in one of the most beautiful dining spots in DC.

Best steak I've ever had! And those popovers were to die for! The only thing that could have made the dining experience better would have been if The President had dined with us.

The food, service and ambiance were all superb! Pricey, but we knew this going in. It's a grand place to go for a special celebration! Be sure to tour the museum in the basement (daytime) and take the elevator ride to the top of the clock tower! Views are amazing! Enjoy!!
