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.

The COVID menu was a bit limited; they were out of strip steaks and sparkling rosé. The special appetizer of the day - grilled calamari steak - was beautifully presented, but was not grilled well and lacked any flavor. The porterhouse we got instead of the strip steaks was delicious. All in all, a good experience.

My family and I made reservations to attend for Easter Sunday 2021. We were able to enjoy the great weather and sit outside. BLT did a great job with providing proper social distance between tables. Our server (Benedict) was absolutely amazing! The steak and eggs were delicious but I should have ordered Medium Rare instead of Medium to really appreciate the Wagyu.

Gracious with a capital G. We were greeted by literally every member of the staff with a warm "Happy Easter". The setting is truly spectacular. Impeccable service. BLT may be David Burke's best restaurant and I am from his home state. We could not resist the popovers and the signature bacon on a clothesline is insanely good. Our main courses were tasty and plated beautifully. The staff knows how to put "special" in special occasion. Political haters are going to hate. Will be back again next time in DC.

We went to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday and they wished him a happy birthday as soon as we walked in. The food was unbelievable and everyone was extremely friendly and professional. Free dessert for the birthday boy! Both seafood and meat were amazing, would 100% recommend!

We celebrated our son’s 10th birthday at BLT. They were fantastic - we were 12+ feet from the closest diners, the service was impeccable as always, and they spoiled my son with desserts. We had reservations for the patio but it was too cold - we were not certain about indoor but they made us very comfortable.

We will be back again soon!

We went to BLT Steak DC for dinner our last night in the city for a nice date. The service was amazing, all of the staff were so helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. The food and cocktails were some of the best we’ve ever had (cant recommend the bacon appetizer or filet enough) and the environment was so nice, quiet and low lit made it a great romantic dinner experience.

This is the best steak house in town! Everything to made to order and there is no pressure to hurry up or get things a certain way. Some steak places seem too snooty to share bites at dinner, not BLT. They also have fabulous sides and non-steak items on the menu. The calamari steak was extremely creative. I got a preview of the "Invasion of Women" cocktail celebrating Women's Month and it is delicious and only $10 for the rest of March.

One of my favorite restaurants. First time back since Covid. Overall food was good but the steaks were a little off from the high quality I’m used to from BLT. The woodear mushroom side was on the dryer side. The hanger steak was slightly burnt, the New York strip was a little dry. The bartender as usual is always on point! Service was great. Overall experience was great.

A great location for an indulgent meal. The food was fantastic. I would go again just for the popovers! They had Covid precautions in place that made us feel safe in dining out from r the first time in a year. Friendly staff and timely service just added to the great experience.

Plainly put: this is the best steak I ever had. The sides are also delicious. I recommend getting the creamed spinach and Mac and cheese. Additionally, they were very accommodating. They gave us a booth upon request. The service is impeccable. They are genial, quick, and attentive. Overall, I would highly recommend

On a recent visit BLT service and food reminded me why its a Top Steakhouse and dining destination in DC. The service was immaculate which is hard to find in the current environment as staffs are cut. The food and wine recommendations were superb.

With regards to COVID, BLT has both indoor and outdoor seating. The have appropriate spacing too. Guests at this location were also abiding by the standard protocols for DC dining.

It’s just fine. It reminds me of a cafeteria. Service is great — very friendly. I had the scallops, not bad! My husband had the waygu strip and to be honest it was dry. He’s not picky so not the end of the world for him but I could most definitely tell and do without it. Amazing desert! It was something with peanut butter. Wouldn’t go back but glad we tried it.

We were frankly concerned about how BLT would be faring in the wake of COVID lockdowns, but they didn't miss a beat. The food was excellent and all the usual flourishes were there. My hangar steak was possibly the tastiest steak I've had in years, and my wife's lamb chops were fantastic -- all cooked perfectly, I might add. We're looking forward to returning soon!
