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.

Not great. They had the place filled to the brim with these little round top tables to max out the space. BLT had it going for a while, but they’ve lost a step. Not quite a tier 1 steak house any more. Food was mediocre at best, popovers were made earlier in the day and reheated, ribeye was tough, desert was actually bad— carrot cake drowning in some type of grand marnier sauce. Service was not overly professional. Nice people, but not well trained. Going to take a break from BLT steak for a while and when I’m looking for a steak, will stick to Capital Grille...

We had a blast at BLT! Their popovers are a great way to start a meal. Service was caring and doting from the moment we entered. Their whole staff took very good care of us and checked on us throughout our stay. Every bite was delicious!

We tried BLT on the advice of a friend and it was a great recommendation. It is located close to the White House so it was a convenient stop for us after a day of sight seeing. We were greeted with smiles and the host was kind enough to take our coats and bags for us. There was an energetic vibe overall and they send you a delicious chicken liver mousse to begin. The service is excellent. Our waiter was kind and very knowledgeable and gave us a great tutorial on the different steak cuts and answered all of our questions. The salads they serve are huge! The definitely don't skimp on the portion sizes. All in all we had a fabulous time and would definitely return. We felt like a great steak and BLT delivered with excellent customer service and cuisine.

BLT is nice, but probably better for a diner spot. Lunch menu is pricey and the past few times, service has not been as good as at night.

I cannot rave about this place enough! It was my husband's birthday and I made a reservation on open table. As soon as we got seated, our server, George, greeted us and wished my husband a happy birthday and gave us a "Happy Birthday" menu. They gave us delicious bread with a yummy spread. We each got steak which was delicious and we got the asparagus and mashed potatoes. OMG. GET THE MASHED POTATOES. I thought my gram's was the best but they outbeat it! We then got a peanut butter dessert and it was amazing as well. Everything was SO good! Beau, the restaurant manager, was SO accommodating and nice as well! Great, Great manager! He ran a tight ship and also helped out where necessary to make his restaurant successful. We will definitely be back here again!!!

We were there for my 81st birthday on Saturday, feb 2. We have dined there before and always love it. Popovers are unbelievable and all entrees were beautifully prepared. Portions are very generous. My one criticism would be the noise level which gets very loud as evening wears on. However, knowing that ahead of time, we would certainly return.

My favorite place for a lunch downtown. It does get noisy for lunch, but that's to be expected and not surprising given how busy it is. They have some of the best steaks and service in the city which more than makes up for it.

Went this past weekend for my husbands 50th birthday. Had a nice table in the back, however it was really dark. I would suggest some additional scones because we could hardly see each other. The manager was very accommodating, and did try to add some candles to give us more light, but it didn't help much. When the two other parties left, they finally turned up the lights, if they just added two more, I think the problem would be solved. Service was not as good as I expected. We did feel a little neglected compared to the other tables in the room. When at a restaurant of this caliber, when I finish my drink and order a new one, please pick up the old glass as you deliver the new one. We had long periods of time in between getting seated and getting our food and minimal attention from the wait staff. I was confused because 2 waiter were coming to our table for something, one picked up one plate and left 5 others on the table, however, I called the other one over before he was going to leave us with a table full of dirty dishes and they cleared it off, again in this price point, I shouldn't have to do that. The manager kindly adjusted our bill, as she herself could see that we were not very happy with the service, and we appreciated it. Overall, my husband said it was one of the best steak he ever had, so it was an overall success and I would probably go back again.

Wagyu sampler was excellent. I also had a side of lobster with it which was fantastic. I personally did not care for the appetizer and side me and my Husband shared - the bacon and then the brussels, but he loved them. I would 100% go back and try other apps/sides, and now I know my favorite cut of Wagyu which I would have again. Drinks were excellent and service was on point.

Very attentive staff and great service makes BLT Steak a venerable steakhouse. Unlike other steakhouses, BLT does not seem to heavily salt their steaks, so at first taste they come off a little bland. You get a purer steak/beef taste, which isn't bad at all. But if you're not used to it, you may be thrown off. However, they provide some very good tasting sauces - peppercorn and chimichurri are the two that we had. The peppercorn really added a nice flavor to the steak. The popovers that are complementary at the beginning are delish-ious! Think of the cheesey breads you get at Brazilian steakhouses - they are like those, but better. All in all, a great night and dinner. However, was disappointed that no complementary birthday dessert was afforded to us as we were their to celebrate a birthday.

This was a great steak house experience. It's pricey, but worth every penny. We received 5 star treatment from their gracious staff from the moment we entered. They service a delicious bread course of popovers which was a real treat. They have a wide variety of menu options, so if you're not a steak lover, do not worry. There is plenty of fresh seafood and other items to choose from. The service here was some of the best I have ever had. Everyone on their staff was so genuinely kind and helpful. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and gave us great recommendations. Save room for dessert if you can! Just a perfect dinner from start to finish, Bravo.

Amazing food. Everything was cooked perfectly. We like our steak barely cooked and it was done as we asked. Our waiter, Benedict, was truly outstanding. He was a joy to be around and is everything good about a young person who is a student while trying to earn an honest living. All the other staff were great as well, everyone smiling and taking pride in their work. Well done. Highly recommend.

My husband and son weren't feeling well on New Year's Eve, so my 2 daughters and I ended up enjoying a girls' evening while they rested at the hotel. We were visiting the area from WV and looking forward to our evening after a less than enjoyable meal at a different steakhouse the night before. I felt a little guilty taking up new year's real estate with 2/3 of our party being kids, but our server was so kind and sweet and generally seemed happy to wait on us. My steak was cooked to perfection, everything was delicious, and at one point my glass of prosecco took a little longer than he thought it should so he took it off the bill, even though I told him it absolutely wasn't necessary. At another point he was tied up with a large party and had his manager check on us. The entire experience was wonderful and we will certainly be back when we're in the area again. Fantastic experience.
