What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.1

BLT Prime is a modern steakhouse that you can always get into, with great chops, a perfect tuna tartare, and the popover of your dreams.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

Food was very good and the restaurant was comfortable. If I had to nitpick I would say that the entire waitstaff was a bit overbearing and the steaks and bottles of wine expensive.

But we had an excellent meal, good steaks, and would return.

We reserved a party of 10 - which is difficult for some restaurants - and the whole evening went without a hitch. Very good service and the steaks were excellent. I would definitely not hesitate to book a large group here again. The Maitre d’ was exceptional and really took care of us.

I had been to BLT in Vegas recently so I assumed I would get similar quality on 22nd Street in Manhattan.I was wrong.Caesar salads came out with absolutely no flavor. Just boring romaine.Dry, flavorless toast crackers were dropped on the salads.After complaining they brought us additional Caesar dressing that seemed like it had been scooped out of a jar.I don't think it was prepared on site and if I wanted to just buy some Newman's Caesar dressing I could eat at home. The popovers that make BLT famous were burnt and really flavorless.I just had them in Vegas a few weeks ago and they were so good we paid for a second round of them, but these in NYC were quite bad.The tuna entrée that two of our party had was excellent according to them. My daughter and I split a porterhouse for two.It was a not worth the $110 price.When I hear dry-aged I think Lugers.Extra flavor, still tender and juicy.We ordered it medium well as most steakhouses these days are going very underdone to cut costs.The steak came out medium which was fine with me, but dry and charred way too much.I've never had as much fat to cut around on a porterhouse at Lugers (sorry to keep quoting experiences from Lugers).The truffle mashed potatoes were not hot when served and pretty flavorless as well.Onion rings were ok but also lacked any sense of flavor. The brussels sprouts were excellent.Overall I was so underwhelmed and at the prices they charged maybe that is why Lugers was booked solid and they were 75% vacant Sunday night.Unless someone convinces me that the chef was having an exceptionally bad evening, this will be my first and last visit to BLT Prime on 22nd Street.After my Vegas meal this one left me feeling like I wasted an evening and quite a bit of money on mediocre food.

I tend to visit BLT for occasions, rather than regular dining and find it consistently very good. The service staff is friendly and accommodating, the ambiance is nice, and the meat is up to snuff with what one would expect from a Gramercy-area steak place. This review regards a visit for Sunday evening dining and it was quiet and pleasant at the 6pm hour.

Arrived a half an hour before our reservation and sat at the bar - the bartenders were great and made excellent cocktails. The dinner was exceptional the chopped salad, branzino and steak. The service & ambience were perfect. They have a cool feature of the atrium dining room and the menu on the wall - very clever.
