David Burke does steaks and meats a lot better than other chains. They have more interesting sides, apps and non-meat offerings. Spouse had a filet, I had veal chop, both huge and cooked as ordered. Oysters Rockefeller and wedge salad were our starters, also very good. Their candied bacon is in everything. Love the gruyere popovers.
We had very attentive service, a glitch at the end with a lost Prosecco and missing sweets.
My biggest complaint was the disco music echoing through the lobby bar area and engulfing the steak house. Cavernous walls and ceiling added to the noise.

There is no better steakhouse in DC (and, yes, we have tried all of the ones worth trying). The location is unmatchable (open-air in the Trump International lobby), the service is impeccable (Paul was our server last time, but we have been here 5+ times and never disappointed), and the food remarkable. Our favorites include the wedge and the cowboy ribeye. The popovers are a mainstay. Don’t miss this one even if you aren’t a fan of the President.

The restaurant is beautiful. It sits above the gorgeous lobby and the ambiance is wonderful. Our outstanding service started with the men running the valet and kept going with every person we encountered. The food was nothing short of amazing! Get the Clothesline Bacon, it is excellent! The oysters were so fresh, filet mignon cooked perfectly and same with the salmon. For dessert we had the cheesecake tree and the peanut butter chocolate mousse dessert, which both were delicious. We had such a fabulous time. Mohammed was our waiter and he was so attentive, accommodating and nice. All of the waitstaff was! We spilled our martini by accident and quickly they came and cleaned it right away. We were there for a birthday and they brought out a dessert with a sparkler-it was so fun. The cost is appropriate for the spectacular food and service. We would absolutely come back.

Extremely Limited menu. & spirts. Disappointed. The food was ok. The food was extremely basic, not what has been in the past. We hope it will get back to what that have had in the past. Ex, the waiter said one of the items we ordered came with truffle fries, instead it came with potato chips. Filet was just ok.

Hello, Thank you so much for dining with us and taking the time to share your feedback. We are glad you loved our ambiance, but we are sorry to hear about the confusion between the truffle fries and potato chips as we do not serve either of those items. However, the Benjamin Bar in the Trump Hotel does serve potato chips. Ultimately, we'd love to talk with you more about your experience as we're constantly working to "wow" every guest. You can reach out to us directly at 703.831.6658. We hope to hear from you soon.

We have eaten at BLT a number of times and many times at this location. Sorry to say the food quality has gone down. Caesar salads were large but tasteless except for pepper. Dover sole was really soggy and bland. Popovers were the highlight.

2/3 filet were great. The 3rd (cooked medium) was very dry and a little hard on the outside. I did not complain because I didn't want to raise a fuss because we were celebrating my daughter and future son in-law engagement. The waitress was exceptional. I will try BLT prime one more time before making any recommendation to others going to BLT Prime.

I am still getting over my STK steak house experience in Orlando, FL. It was such a horrible experience. And to have an exactly opposite, amazing and outstanding experience is a welcoming scene to say the least. Right from the terrific service to the food, everything was on point. Will visit again!

My son said he had the best steak he ever had. He has had many great steaks.
The Asiago popovers, my wife said, were the best bread she has ever had.
The service was impeccable.
