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.

Excellent service! Our server Adam was simply the best. He had excellent recommendations and was terrifically attentive. The food was delicious and I would definitely come back to try what remains on the menu. If there's a special occasion such as anniversary or birthday then there's no better place to go!

Service was great - staff is awesome

Most of the meal was great, but the tempura was all dough. Lobster bisque was kind of boring

The lamb and salad were great

And who doesn’t love the popovers ?

Good meat and side dishes. Portions however are very large especially the Eye Rib ordered for a teenager who could barely eat half. A bit of a waste for a USD 52 dish with no side food(meat only). Waiter should warn of the size and suggest two people share the dish..... the 10OZ filet was good( maybe under cooked for a medium cooking but very tatsty and way enough large... excellent puffed bread.... will return just for the bread.... the tuna was also excellent.... overall good experience....a bit pricey (90 dollar per head with just 2 glasses of red wine and just one plate each ....but quality of food was worth it.... next time, we will know what to select size wise and avoid wasting too much food....

Appetizers were delicious, my aged ribeye was delicious too although was over cooked to a medium (very very little pink) even though ordered same medium rare as my husband’s tomahawk. Not consistent cooking. Fries and loaded baked potato were huge but nothing special. Great service and atmosphere, delicious popovers and wine and cocktails and desserts.

Excellent, excellent experience. We were celebrating a my dad and brother's birthday in addition to a recent promotion for my dad. My dad loves this restaurant and I'm so happy with how everything turned out. Food was outstanding and the service was incredible. Even if our main server was busy, there was always someone checking in on us. We also had a quiet room off to the side where we could have good conversation, but also be a part of the energy of the dining room. The popovers were perfection and the steaks were cooked exactly to everyone's liking. Exceeded our expectations and will definitely be back very soon!

Loved the restaurant. Very amicable staff. Delicious food. Noise level is just our age it seems, but why? In France you don't have hammering music playing and echo'd conversations everywhere. Even where Millenials go, they don't seem to need the buzz that feeds young New Yorkers. I know that people are louder anyway, but still, should not have to SHOUT throughout the meal.

I came here to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. Everything was perfect, from the Atmosphere, Service, and especially the food. We were greeted with a Pate that was delicious followed by a couple of Popovers that I really wanted more of (we were kind of embarrassed to ask for seconds). We ordered the Porterhouse for 2 with 2 sides and their Special Appetizer of the day which was Mussels. The seasoning on this particular steak was PHENOMENAL. Some steakhouses really drop the ball on this one, but BLT Prime seasoned it perfectly. The meat was tender and juicy. We had 2 sides, the Brussels Sprouts and Mac n Cheese. If I must critique one thing from BLT, it would most likely be the Mac n Cheese. We felt as though the pasta was a bit overcooked. HOWEVER, that in NO way ruined the evening for us. After we finished our meal, we ordered dessert and the floor manager surprised her with a dessert on the house! The plate itself had in beautiful handwriting "Happy Birthday Cindy". We loved this place and it was a shame we had not heard of BLT earlier. We will be coming back for years to come. Thank You! :)

Food is now awful! We used to go here years ago. It was great. But after years of neglect, this place has gone down hill. Steaks are not good at all. They serve a large steak and they present it well, just too fool you. No good appetizers on the menu. Caesar salad was like they just took some old lettuce and threw mayo on top. Short rib was dry and over cooked. Menu has been the same for last 10 years. All this place has become is a glorified dinner. Also very expensive. Not worth it. Stay away.

The kitchen is brilliant with all the meats and I can over look the lack of perfection in the fish entrees.

My guest was easy, however I noticed the less than perfect truffle mashed potatoe and onion ring sides. That’s inexcusable.

The liver pâte amuse bouche and the popovers were to die for as was the service.

We are long-time NYC'ers and over the past several years we have eaten at BLT Prime probably 4-5 times a year. The steaks were pretty good and it was a reliable nice meal. Unfortunately, it has slowly gotten worse and this past weekend we had perhaps the worst dining experience I've had in quite a while. I will not be going back to this restaurant.
Problem 1- The front desk and manager. We checked in for our reservation, but were given no information besides whether we wanted to check our coats so we stood there like idiots for 5 minutes. We watched the manager collected coats from a bunch of people nearby but no one decided to share any information for us on when we would be seated or if we should get a drink at the bar. The hostess chatted on the phone. We finally asked where we should go and they took us to our table.
Problem 2 - The waiter. He took our orders and then came back to tell me they were out of the entree I ordered. Instead of asking what else I would like, he left the table and didn't return for 10 minutes. I finally had to call him over to order my meal. We then waited for over 60 minutes for our meal. The table beside us, which arrived after us and ordered after us, got their meals about 10-15 minutes before us. We asked the waiter what was the problem and he said it would be "any minute". Our meals then came out finally after another 5 minutes of waiting. The medium rare "bone-in ribeye" was raw and had no visible bone. The bone-in filet was cold and had obviously been sitting there for awhile. We told the waiter and he said "there is nothing I can do about it" but asked if we wanted to see a manager. The manager came over and apologized, and said she would not charge us for one of the entrees.
When we were leaving another patron was complaining to the hostess about his "terrible steak" - so I don't think it was just us. Unfortunately, this restaurant used to be pretty good, but I will never go back.
