I went to BLT Prime to treat my mom and grandmother to a celebration of life. I ordered a variety of items that everyone enjoyed for the most part ranging from the candied bacon, oysters rockefeller, and a salad which was big enough to split. Followed up with the crabcake and the biggest steak on the menu. To top things off the new watermelon mocktail was delicious, however the new creamsicle mocktail wasn't as sweet as I was expecting. The service was great, and my family was happy and impressed with how they were treated and the ambiance of the restaurant environment. They also enjoyed the dessert with sparklers as I believe it was their first time ever experiencing that type of gesture.

Valet, was on the pricey side coming in at $35 dollars, but there service was as good to be expected plus we are parking in DC so just a warning to those expecting it to be a lower price.

Overall experience was wonderful. The bacon app was one of the best appetizers I have ever tried. Sides and service were great as was the atmosphere. The only knock was the dry aged NY strip was less than impressive. I've had many $20 dollar steaks that were much better. Maybe I just got the wrong item off the menu.

This was the worst experience I’ve ever had at BLT Prime. The waiter recommended ravioli for a person who had told him she was gluten free. Servers kept pouring still water in our sparkling. Nobody came by ever to ask if we wanted more bottles of Pellegrino (we did) or additional iced coffees (we also did). Odd, as there were only three other tables with customers.

The eggs were hard and overcooked- really appreciated the manager removed one of the charges, but after the poor service, we left disappointed. Will not be back again for Sunday brunch.

Fabulous service - "as professional as it gets," but backed with an overly-noisy setting and, on this occasion, a weak kitchen.

I was VERY MUCH looking forward to dinner at this establishment, and the service (from greeting and throughout the evening) was second-to-none. However, there were two fatal flaws that resulted in my severe disappointment. The first is that the lobby music of the hotel (the restaurant is open to the lobby) in which this restaurant is located was BLARING and intrusive. What could they be thinking? To me, it sounded more like a bad band tuning up -- and at full volume. Before I left the restaurant, I had a headache from the "noise" masquerading as music.

The second problem was that my steak was overcooked. I'm CONFIDENT that it was not the fault of the server (who offered to return it, but I didn't want him to get in a quarrel with the kitchen). I ordered it "blue," and I reiterated the menu description, which included, among other things, "cold red center" (it might have even said "very red" -- but I know it said "cold"). I emphasized "NOT black & blue," but BLUE. He got it, and I'm confident that he communicated it that way to the kitchen. Even if he DIDN'T, the kitchen should have honored the menu description of the degree of doneness. When it arrived, it was slightly charred on the outside (grrr....), but it was a thick piece of beef. I cut into the middle, and it was red. "Great," I thought, "It's close enough to blue." However, the center wasn't cold. Indeed, far from it. It wasn't as it was described on the menu, and it wasn't what I wanted. As stated above, however, at that point I really wasn't interested in having a battle with the kitchen through the service intermediary, so I pointed it out to the server, indicated that I DIDN'T want another one (again, it was "acceptable," but NOT blue), and I didn't want a string of apologies from anyone (I told this to the waiter... "Look, this is not what is described." Then let it go.

Everything was fine with this restaurant.
Great food and wine.
Unfortunately the service just didn’t live up to the expectations of such a heavily marketed and promoted establishment.
Curt remarks and sour attitude from our main waiter resulted in this review.
He simply wasn’t high calibre.
Oh well let’s move on.

A Must Do DC experience! Not just a place to eat, but truly an experience! The ambiance is perfect! Perfectly dimly lit (but not too dim), the right amount of noise for a lively feel, but also a vibe that is intimate and very special. The service was impeccable. The servers are very attentive and friendly, not stuffy. There were lots of little surprises from the chef along the way including some free small bites. We were celebrating a special occasion, and we were surprised by a dessert accompanied by a small sparkler show tableside and congratulations extended. It was the perfect touch to our evening. The food is amazing. Request a rail seating to enjoy the views of the Trump Hotel lobby and all the excitement going on down below. This is one of our favorite DC restaurants for overall experience!
