Outstanding service, and amazing ambiance. The food was classic steakhouse fair, and very well done. You won't be sorry starting with the bacon appetizer.

Came here with my wife for lunch while staying at the hotel. The food was good. Nothing stood out. The clothesline bacon and strip steak were great. Brussels sprouts were ok and the chicken blt was dry. I don't mind spending a lot for amazing food but this was underwhelming.

I felt a little insulted when the server asked to see that my room number and name were legible because I had one drink. (His words, not mine)

The view of the Trump International D.C. lobby was by far the best part of the experience. Would probably not revisit the restaurant.

This was in my bottom three steakhouse experiences of all time (the only 2 worse? Morton's downtown and Ruth's Chris just north of Dupont--which both have poor service). The service at BLT was sub-par. It took a very long time to be greeted by our server and he often forgot about us (he forgot my dessert wine at one point, too). In addition, he would approach our table and literally stand there and say nothing. It was very odd and made us feel very uncomfortable. As for the food, we got the oysters to start, which were fantastic. However, both of our steaks were not very good. My mother got a ribeye, which she claimed had no flavor. I got the 10oz. filet, cooked rare, and it was so tough that I was getting a workout trying to cut through it. We got whipped potatoes, brussel sprouts, and mushrooms with our steaks--all were good.

Excellent experience with breakfast and the staff. I would rate Chenee Williams the bartender a 5/5. She is so personable and knows the history of this former central post office, OPO. Chenee took care of us and had lunch served to my daughter at the bar within her one hour conference schedule. The whole time she had a servant attitude while giving us the history lesson. The best way to describe the service here is “better than the Ritz” and I have been to the best! I will come back and it’s because of the service and Chenee! Ask for her if you go to the lobby bar and enjoy your time!

Magnificent view of the hotel atrium and clock tower was somewhat overshadowed by the unfriendly welcome. Hostess was not nice. Manager was in constant view of our table, and he had repeated tantrums with the goings on. Don't know the reason for the constant displays of anger....I did see a few tables send back their undercooked steaks. Our food was fine and cooked properly. I'd skip the hanging bacon next time; very thick and fatty. Lobster bisque was very good. Brick chicken, and bone in rib-eye were great. The wine list was way overpriced, even for this level of dining. We ended up getting glasses of wine instead of a bottle. Our wine was good, but something I could get locally for a fraction of the price; no value there. The hotel was beautiful; the music was not...consisted of a constant beat of euro techo repetition.....got on our nerves after 15 minutes. All in all, there are much better steakhouses, but this one has the beautiful grand backdrop of the Trump hotel lobby, so I would recommend at least one visit.

We asked for a booth, told we could be accommodated, yet we were seated at a banquet. We were told they don't seat 3 at a booth, then they seated the GM, party of 3, at the booth. Just tell us the GM is coming in.
They took our white linens to exchange for black ones, but we had to ask again for linens once the food arrived.
Lobster Bisque was delicious, yet really salty. I didn't mind the pieces of shell, since that told me the lobster was real! And hopefully fresh. The popovers were divine, as was the bacon.
When we asked for the check to be split, we were told it was pretty even, and we should just split 3 ways. It was actually NOT very even, so we had to be creative on tip. You have conventions guests all the time, so that shouldn't be a difficult request.
Overall, a lovely evening, just with a couple of small hiccups.
