The service was very good. The burger was OK, and the short ribs were covered in a very heavy sauce.

Staff was great; very accommodating. Sides were good. But the steak and the eggplant were mediocre at best.
Remember it being much better pre-Covid.

Just when you think customer service is dead and gone, you come to BLT Prime and meet Annie. Annie is the restaurant manager who no matter how busy the restaurant is for a Saturday night, manages to make her way to each and every table, ask if there’s anything she can help with, but best of all, takes the time to get to know the people at the table. By the time we left, Annie was our new best friend. My husband mentioned he was looking for a cigar bar/lounge in town and Annie went out of her way to find a couple locations for him. She made us feel welcome and taken care of, what an asset to this hidden gem of a restaurant. Our waiter Giovani, also just as amazing. He was taking care of several tables that night but made sure to make his way back to check in on us several times throughout the night.
Now for the food, oh my! We started off with popovers that were absolutely delicious! Appetizers were great as was the steak and sides we ordered. But, the highlight of the night was the dessert, we had the Profiterole and that is a must when you visit this establishment.
Thank you, Annie, for making our anniversary dinner feel so special, look forward to seeing you again next time we are in New York!

We were entertaining out-of-town guests and chose BLT Steak because we knew the quality and service would be consistently excellent. Our server was delightful and served us with a big smile. The steaks were cooked as ordered and they were delicious.
Definitely looking forward to our next visit.

The waiter was terrible, we waited endlessly for drinks while he checked his phone.
Popovers were cold when served. The fried calamari was inedible. The steaks were decent, but given the meal for four was $500, I will never go back.
