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!

Disappointed. Wine service was amateur at best . Waitress was cold and impersonal. Great view within a historical location. Can’t recommend.

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!

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 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.

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.

What a wonderful dining experience! We wanted to try some place different to celebrate our birthday dinners (six days apart) and chose to have dinner here. The staff was very attentive and extremely polished with the way they treated their guests. The food was, as expected, amazing! We had the steak tartar, shrimp cocktail, porterhouse for two with the lobster fondue, and hipster fries. We ate everything! To top it off, because we were celebrating two birthdays, we were able to try the molten chocolate cake and passion fruit cake as a gift from the restaurant. Very, very happy with our evening here!

We had breakfast after staying in the Trump International the food was very good and the atmosphere is wonderful. I will say the service could have been a little better and the man that seated us a little nicer. I felt like he was looking down on us for some reason.

We ate there two years ago for our 30th wedding anniversary and had the most wonderful dining experience ever, excellent service, excellent food, and we even got a nice little dessert cake that said “Happy Birthday.” We thought it was very funny. We have both worked in 4 star places and BLT Prime blew all others out of the water. This year, for our 32nd anniversary we wanted to have that same experience. And this time it fell WAY short. Horrible service, mediocre food, and not a mention by our waiter of our anniversary. Not once through appetizers, salads, or main course did anyone ask if things were OK. I wanted a glass of wine with my steak so when our dinners FINALLY arrived, I asked the expeditor if I could get a glass of wine, a little while later, I was given a wine glass, and with a few pieces of my steak left, the wine finally came. When it was time for dessert, we declined and there was no attempt to up-sell, no recommendation, or ask a second time and recommend something. This guy was just bad. My wife and I debated over the tip. We are 20% tippers if things just go well, and higher if the meal goes extremely well. Tonight it was 14%, and he was lucky to get that. I will caution my friends about going here. The whole thing turned from a $400 dinner two years ago to a $200 dinner this time.
UPDATE
The manager reached out and suggested we give them an opportunity to show us this was not the norm. So glad we accepted. It is so reassuring that these reviews are read, and shortcomings are corrected. We tried it again in hopes that we just caught a waiter on a bad night. What a difference. Waitstaff was EXCELLENT! This is what we expected based on our first experience at this restaurant, and they did not disappoint. Food was delicious. We will be back.

We absolutely love dining at BLT in the Trump Hotel. We get there at least an hour early so we can sit at the bar and have a drink and maybe an appetizer and then we meander over to the BLT for dinner. The service is fantastic; they have so many staff on that you’re always being responded to, you never have to wait , it’s very attentive but not hovering. The wine selection is amazing and the food is simply first-rate. I really don’t think you can find a better place for a serious sit-down table-cloth meal in all of DC and I’m very picky. All of the staff in the hotel are so welcoming and attentive ;we spoke with the manager on our way out , he’s a really interesting fascinating person and then the doorman was so friendly and they actually gave us a lift back to our hotel (driver was wonderful , Orlando) some distance away. It was a fabulous evening out. Magical.
