Both food & service were perfect as always! The FREEDOM! ‘21 cocktail was delicious (and benefits the LGBTQ community for pride month) as was our entire meal and dessert. Another wonderful meal at BLT Prime in the books!

the calamari was amazing; good drinks, we chose to eat outside so the noise level is to be expected. Great service- attentive- better than my recent experience at the Mark

Porterhouse excellent although it was cut into chunks vs thick slices, a little smaller steak than benjamins for example

Cream spinach and mash potatoes very good

Tuna tartare and Bronzino could be better, TT down the street at Orsay much better.

I asked for 2 dewars and soda, think I got something even cheaper and poor quality instead. I should have asked to see the bottle. However when a bartender puts a straw in a glass of scotch and a lemon on the rim it tells me that he is poorly trained - not up to the standards of BLT.

Overall not bad but there are easy fixes to make it world class

Excellent steaks plus other non-red meat choices on an interesting menu, VERY widely-spaced tables in a handsome environment plus attentive, professional service at fair (for this quality on the UES) prices.

What a NYC gem. I had the most beautiful very first Mother’s Day brunch there. Tuna tartare out of this world. Had a fantastic 10 oz filet cooked perfectly med rare. Husband had the veal schnitzel, best he says he ever had. Portions were HUGE. Gorgeous place with killer service. Would go back a million times. Thanks to them for making my day so lovely!!

I generally love this place. Service was a little disorganized this time and everything came out at the same time resulting food being eaten in a rush and/or no longer warm. Which is a shame because I like their food. But they comped desert without us complaining. So good service recovery. Will return.

Four of us met up here and had the best time. Our server José was fabulous; helpful, attentive, friendly. And we had really good, thoughtful advice and support from our sommelier. The wine list is very good. Our starters were plentiful and delicious - burrata and tomato; bacon; tuna tartare - and combined with the great bread and popovers, also pretty filling... The steaks were amazing, and cooked exactly as requested. We were even given free dessert, including something special for our GF friend. Totally recommended and can't wait to go back..!

Every minute of the experience here was perfect. The steak was fantastic, our waiter was friendly, knowledgable, and helpful, and they consistently went above and beyond to make sure our dinner was an experience we wouldn't forget. Highly recommend the Kansas City steak but I have to imagine there are no wrong choices here.

This is my favorite steak place in NYC, & one of my favorites overall! Outstanding popovers to start you off, steak & seafood entrees are fantastic, & their mushroom dish is one of ny favorite foods. The one in manhattan has indoor & outdoor seating. The one in White Plains has high ceilings & lots of social distancing. Great service as well.
