Just re-opened and a much more limited menu, but a fantastic food and service steakhouse. Ambience is the best as well.

High-class service, great food! The atmosphere was very nice but would be premier if reservations and a dress code were required. The current dress ranged from t-shirt & jeans to suit & tie. While this doesn’t affect overall enjoyment of the meal, there is something to be said for higher, quality standards.

We came here Saturday 3/14. I truly understand everything regarding the Virus, but the lack of service was bothersome. We paid a lot of money only to wait 10 minutes, we got asked our dinner order before our drink order, 45 minutes for our salads, and then our entrees came out quickly after... it wasn’t properly spaced out. I feel like I’d rather have gone to another steakhouse in DC.

Another fabulous dinner at BLT Prime. Paul, our server, made us right at home. We started with cocktails Martini for me and classic Mohito for my wife. The cheese puffs are wonderful — too delicious to pass up. We shared a gigantic shrimp cocktail and the wonderful clothesline bacon — savor the pickle at the finish glazed with brown sugar and bacon drippings. My wife enjoyed the 10pz filet and I savored the most delicious NY Strip. Cooked to perfection. Melted in my mouth. Paul recommended a house Cab Sav that was a terrific compliment. We enjoyed seared asparagus and spiced things up with crazy corn as sides. To be honest it was too much food and we ended up taking home our entrees to be enjoyed the next day. Finally, we finished with a refreshing lemon sorbet. The service was excellent — efficient, but unhurried. We felt like we could have stayed all evening if we had wished. The BLT Prime is great for conversation and people watching. It is our favorite for special occasions. We will certainly be back again.

We have been to this place many times and we love it. This time was not the same.

1. Our server was in a bad mood and in many occasions brought the wrong order. He even sent with the waitress a champagne to the table and we said we didn’t order but she thought it was a gift for my husband’s birthday so he started drinking it. Some minutes later the server storms to our table, grabs the glass very fast and puts it on the table of another person (I imagine the person who actually ordered it). I didn’t have the time to let the server know that he had already drank from the glass....

2. We are big about meats and we like it medium (pink in the middle). They cooked it medium well. This is strange for a recognizable steak house.

3. My husband loves their chocolate soufflé and he ordered it for his birthday. Of course they brought the wrong dessert and said that it was the one available. At the end we asked again and said that they did have the chocolate soufflé available...

Hopefully it was just a one time bad luck visit and it comes back again because we really like this restaurant.

This was truly the best experience we could have imagined. Celebrating our engagement at BLT Prime couldn’t have get anymore special. The staff were the friendliest and most accommodating group you could ask for. The food and drink selection was phenomenal. The managers the evening we went made every second special from the moment we walked in until we left to the lobby for a couple celebratory drinks. Gracie and Jeff are truly amazing and we highly recommend this spot to anybody and will continue to make it a special spot for as long as we are in DC.

I had my birthday dinner at BLT prime Sunday night. I will say that the food and drinks were good, we started off with oysters and both had steak which was cooked well. I also received a complimentary dessert which was appreciated. However the ambience was very disappointing. I had to ask a man at the table next to me to get off his cell phone. Then the ladies across from us started FaceTiming all their friends. It felt like being at Denny’s. Also, our waitress seemed to be operating off of a script and the service just felt very stiff and awkward. With so many good places in DC we will not be coming back here.

Setting is beautiful and watching political celebrities was fun. Service was good. Filet mignon was terrible. It’s indicated on the menu that it’s not prime beef - I had no idea this meant it would be really awful quality.

Went to BLT for a birthday celebration. The food was tasty especially her scallops. I ordered steak and eggs were very good except for the fact the eggs were barely warm. The sequence of the meal was "jerky" We ordered drinks and they arrived right away along with the pastry basket. Then it took awhile for the entrees. Hers came first and eventually mine. We ordered another drink and hers came and I had to wait for mine. They brought her a special dessert but I had to wait several minutes for my dessert. In fact she inquired when mine was coming since she didn't want to start hers before me. Our waiter was very good and he tried to explain why the food came out the way it did. We will probably go back since she really enjoys the food and the view from the upper deck.

Was exactly what you’d expect for brunch at Trump Hotel. It was amazing and all around a great experience.

Definitely a little pricey so be prepared for that.
