Steak
BLT Steak's design integrates select traditional elements of the French "Bistro" and an American "Steakhouse". A lighter environment has been created that is enhanced by the richness of Macassar Ebony tables and matching suede. A 25-foot bar greets diners with an excellent array of libations for pre- or post- dining pleasure including an oyster and shellfish raw bar.

We had a wonderful anniversary dinner at BLT Steak DC. Service was the best we ever had. Lots of wait staff and managers that were making the rounds of the entire restaurant asking about the dinner. The menu had many offerings particularly the steak. We had the hangar steak and the grilled shrimp which were both excellent. Popovers were huge and the sides were very good. Would definitely recommend this restaurant even though it was pricey, the food was well worth it.

Fast and attentive staff. Dress code could be a little less lenient. If I’m spending $300 or more on a dinner for two, I’d rather not see someone in a baseball cap at the dinner table.

We always have a great meal when we go to BLT. Just went for my 15 year wedding anniversary. They treated my wife and I great. Servers and staff very friendly. They gave us special menus that said Happy Anniversary on the top. Mine thing but felt good. Had the some steaks and they were cooked perfect. The side Mac and Cheese is highly recommended. My wife and I like to go here to celebrate things. You can't go wrong here.

We had a 745 reservation for 8 seated right away
We waited for our waitress to great us finally did took drink order 2of the 8 when they arrived
Our server was unattentive most of the evening
We felt like we were bothering her
This was disappointing especially considering there were 8 of us and a 1200 $ check
On a positive note the folks who helped with service were very nice
The steaks were cooked exactly as ordered so that was good
We asked for help ordering sides for a group of 8 6 23 and under that was a mistake 2 Brussel sprouts one very small mashed potatoes and a potato skin anyhow the overall experience was fair certainly not what you would expect when the average per person was 150 $

Server was outright rude. She was upset I ordered a drink from the bar before being seated so she proceeded to make it visibly clear our patronage was not welcome. Weirdest experience I’ve ever had in a restaurant. Shocking really.

Dinner at BLT Steak was exquisite. They serve a rich and creamy pate to begin, and their flaky popovers are to die for. Service was impeccable throughout our experience, as the waitstaff and managers made our stay truly special. They have a classic steak house menu with many unique dishes as well. Look forward to returning soon.

Terrible. The first time ever that a restaurant refused to honor a reservation on the excuse that they did not have space because they had too many clients!! We were seated at a high table in the bar area by an entrance door. The bartender who served as a waiter was very rude. The Lobster Cobb salad, typically served in a large bowl, was served in a regular plate with hardly any of the typical ingredients but lettuce. It was horrible.

Most DC Steak houses have the usual suspects on the menu. This place goes a bit out of it's way to be unique. The Wayu offerings as well as the seasonal truffle additions are quite nice touches. However, BLT Steak needs to get the basics right first. This is the second time I've dined here int he past 8 months and both times my bone-in ribeye has chewy. They seem to have an issue being consistent with getting medium rare right on this particular piece of meat. The Burrata salad however is nearly to die for. Spectacular and a nice deviation for the carnivores. The shrimp entree was well done a well.

Promptly greeted and seated at a comfortable table. Enjoyed a quiet conversation while loving the popover with creamy butter, a wonderful Caesar salad with anchovies, and a 22 oz cowboy steak medium rare with chimichurri sauce. Lovely and thoroughly delicious. I rarely splurge for a large steak so it's important that its grilled to perfection when I do.

I just want to say my wife and I found this restaurant experience to be one of the best we’ve ever had. Beginning with Happy Hour all the way to getting our check it was over the top. The meal, especially the homemade bread, along with the service was exceptional. Our servers and the Manager that evening could not have been more gracious. My braised short ribs and my wife’s rack of lamb where the best we’ve ever had! Both of us have been to restaurants throughout the country and internationally but we agreed we would go back to this restaurant in a heartbeat! Thank you for a great evening!
