    Food was good with steaks being the stars. Service was sort of hit and miss. Happy to go back but only if I happen to be in the immediate area.

    We were amazed that the place was packed on a Monday night. The food was fabulous. I had the lamb chops (delish) and my daughter in law had the Filet Mignon. Service was excellent

    We choose BLT to celebrate my daughters' graduation of her Masters Degree. We always watch Food Network and Food shows and fell in love with Cliff Cooks. His attention to detail and love of food and his story has inspired us and we have grew closer. We usually go to Mortons or other high end restaurants. The initial greeting and ambiance was wonderful. All the staff was welcoming and attentive. The waitress was a bit slow with our drinks but over all service was good. The Steaks were seasoned perfectly and absolutely delicious and worth every penny! We had the Wagu & T bone's. The negatives: The calamari was soggy, smelt like fish and was chewy. All 4 of the sides had No Salt, okay not so bad but the brussel sprouts which sounded delicious were over cooked, burnt, and couldn't eat them at all. We had mentioned these things to our waitress and we got a smile and an apology thats it. We all would go back but this time stick with the Steaks & just the Steaks!

    The restaurant's outside set-up is poor - especially compared to other comparable restaurants. The steak was average - on the tougher side. The service was excellent.

    Lovely food, great decor but my favorite thing was the noise level which probably sounds odd haha I am so used to go into trendy restaurants that blast that music so loud I can barely hear the people I am with. So it was refreshing to actually sit down an have a nice conversation over dinner with som light/low music in the background. Great ambience.

    We had an enjoyable meal there, but the servers could use some more training. For example, our server neglected to tell us that the main courses do not come with sides and need to be ordered separately. Hence, by the time we realized this and talked to our server, it was too late. She could have had a bigger bill and tip otherwise. Also, we probably would have consumed more wine if she had noticed that our glasses were empty and had prompted us to order more.

    Overall it was ok. Wasn’t what I expected. The food wasn’t really to my liking. I had the Dover sole fish which was bland and overcooked. I ordered Brussel sprouts which I love. They weren’t cooked long enough. It was just okay, though highly recommended by the waiter. My husband enjoyed his steak. It was cooked to his liking and juicy. The waiter was friendly in the beginning, but as more people came in it seems he forgot we were there.

    The team at BLT Prime was extremely warm and supportive. The restaurant was very busy but we ate outside and we were the only table seated outside. They went out of their way to accommodate both the event we were celebrating and the challenge of having one one active table outside. Food was delicious and the steak perfectly carved.

    A wonderful meal, starting with Steven at the bar and ending with Orlando at our table. Impeccably friendly and efficient service of exceptional porterhouse steak, creamed spinach, wild mushrooms and mashed potatoes. Due to the fine fare, we ate more than we should have, but the flavors were too good to resist. We were surprised at the table with pate, which was mild and delicious, and a glass of Prosecco from the bar. The popovers were amazing. The only average item was the calamari, which was not bad, but a bit overfried. The staff was absolutely perfect, from the hostesses to the assistant waiters to the other assistants, all aiming to please and accomplishing their goals. The evening was pricey but was a rare dining experience inviting a return visit.
