First time. Great steak. Everything we tasted was delicious. Attentive service. Everything was seamless and smooth. Added touched knowing it's my first time with some additional dessert treats just made us feel like they value us as customers. They were very busy but the whole team was on point. I'm a Director at a hotel and truly appreciate the experience. Thanks will definitely be back.

Worst steak I've ever had in a steakhouse. The only saving grace was the maitrede was awesome. He was a very nice guy and extraordinarily helpful. If not for him I'd give that place one star.

There is truly nothing to complain about here. Great ambience, competent bartender, more than adequate wine list that doesn’t gouge “too badly” and solid food and selection. Our server was a bit overtaxed, and the entire service operation lacks connection to the customer, but all-in-all very competent and pleasant, with really good food and a positive environment.

The food was ressoably good, which is important. However, the service was very lacking. Beverage service was not very good - get a refrigerator!

Great steakhouse in NYC. Authentic very good quality food, great service (our waiter was excellent), good list of international wines. This is my second time at BLT prime and i will sure come back. Strongly suggested for official or formal dinners. We had a really great time.

everything is good as usual. the only thing made me a little bit upset was that one of the waiter tried to clean the table and move away the bottle, then add my friend's sparkling water into my tap water... i really do not like the taste of sparkling water...

Went to BLT Prime for Thanksgiving dinner. It was three of us and they put us at a table that was awkwardly placed where waiters had to squeeze by one of the chairs to get by or reach both sides of the table. The food was ok, the Ribeye cuts were enjoyed, but my sister found the prime rib to be too fatty. The brussel sprouts were overcooked (mushy) and mixed with pieces that seemed raw. Desserts were decent. Overall, the meal was fine, but for those prices you expect a little more.

the place is obviously for young people with money and no objection to price.
Quality of food is good and so is service. It is, however, too noisy to afford conversation while enjoying a meal.

My husband and I were in the city and were happy to see there was a BLT steak house near us -as we always eat there while on vacation in carribean.
We got there a little early for our reservation and they gladly took us in.
They squeezed us in between other couples. A little too close for our comfort. I ordered medium filet .
It came out very fast. But was burnt on outside and under cooked inside.
I returned it and manager apoligized and tried to fix situation. Brought new steak which was a little better but had no flavor. My husband ordered waygu special . It also was mushy and under cooked and salty. Not very happy. Side dishes of mashed potato and onion rings were delish . Manager brought over peanut butter/ chocolate dessert for steak mistake. Was best part of meal. Very disappointed with this meal. Not sure we will return to this restaurant .

One of the best steaks I have had in recent years. The menu was very good - I think it would be difficult to place an order that was not well paired. All of the food was excellent. Service was spot on. Location was good for us but it would be worth traveling to as well.

There's just too many good restaurants in NYC to make this a must-go place. I had an excellent rib-eye and my wife had the striped bass which was only average. For a real food-loving, experienced New York restaurant goer, this place might be worth a stop by- but by no means go out of your way to get a seat. If you're stuck, entertaining guests, and need a decent place to eat, this will do.

Three years ago my boyfriend and I had one of our first dates at BLT Prime and it has been our favorite restaurant ever since. The food, service and atmosphere has never let us down. When we celebrated our Anniversary there a few years ago they gave us an over the top experience. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone and always have friends and family who visit enjoy a meal there with us!

I always enjoy their steak and of course the popover but I can no longer call this the best steakhouse in the city. BLT reminded me of what a great cut of meat the NY strip is.

But the crab cake was a zero and I know it used to be great in the past. Not one bit of lump crab meat and all filler. Someone is trying to cheapen things up and based on the crowd people have recognized it.

The staff is absolutely the best! Very courteous and accommodating . The managers are supervising closely and come to your table to check on things - very alert. The steaks are of high quality and the sides are delicious. Went there to celebrate husband's birthday, and everyone was helpful keeping it a surprise until dessert time without me reminding them.
Highly recommend it and will be taking friends around the holidays.

Brought some clients here for business dinner. The appetizers were pretty mediocre, so I would suggest ordering less of those. However, we tried a fish and three different types of steaks, all of which were fantastic. The tomahawk steak had to be shared and was some of the best steaks I've had in NY. The service was also a highlight, as the waiter was very attentive without being overbearing. Overall, it was a great experience and the client had a good time. I'd recommend this place for any business occasions.
