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.

Restaurant is nicely appointed although our table was a little close to other tables on either side. Server was efficient and very friendly. Food was simply magnificent as always. Unexpected surprise desert for our anniversary was a treat. Our entire party of 4 thoroughly enjoyed every minute and every bite.

I was in town with a big group of people. I had been to the BLT in Aruba last spring and was impressed. The service at BLT was beyond bad. I’ve never received such bad service at a high end restaurant like this. The cut of steak (NY Strips) was not worth the price and had a tendon going through most of our cuts. Some of our steaks were under cooked and the server never came back to check on us to see if the steaks were cooked properly. The popovers were pretty good though. Overall I would not recommend this steak house to anyone.

While I enjoyed my meal at BLT this week I did have a few issues. First of all, who puts chives on a caesar salad? Never, ever, have I experienced that before so I didn't think I need to ask for "no funny green things". I have an allium intolerance. Now, if you send a salad back for something like chives don't you think the server should take note and make sure they don't end up on other dishes? One would think so yet the truffel mashed potatoes and asparagus arrived with chives. I understand the chives on mashers, it's a garnish that adds colour. But why the eff would you sprinkle chives on asparagus, which is also green. Makes no sense to me.

Great food and service. Had a really good time. Downsides were that it was super loud and only 4 shrimp in the shrimp cocktail for $24.

BLT's ambiance is what you would expect of any busy upscale restaurant in the city. The cowboy ribeye and grilled branzino were underwhelming considering the cost. The wine list was impressive with a variety from $1800-$45 a bottle. We decided on a $100 bottle of Bordeaux to compliment our dinner. All in all, the evening was an enjoyable one. The host, wait staff, chef, and sommelier were absolutely delightful.

On the down side, it was loud, the popovers were over baked, and the service was slow as we spent several minutes (10+) staring around the table at the finished plates with no serving staff to clear - twice, after appetizers and entrees.
On the up side, the popovers were still yummy, the steaks cooked to perfection, and the lobster Cobb and wedge salads were really good.

The Staff is fantastic. I listed in the OpenTable notes that this was a birthday celebration for my husband. BLT thoughtfully had menus printed with my husband’s name at the top. Just a small touch that goes a long way. The service was impeccable and the food even better.

The service was excellent, but it was so loud that you couldn't hear the person right in front of you unless you also were shouting. Also, the lighting is so dim that you could see everyone looking at the menu's with cell phone lights, not to mention the print was wearing off and the type font was very small.

The service was outstanding. Appetizers were very good and the complimentary po overs were delicious as well. Very nice wine list. But the steak was tough and lacking in flavor - each person at our table had a steak that’s was less than desirable. Domestic wagyu was not nearly worth the price tag. And the “local” aged beef was tough and over cooked.

Love the place but got overcharged for the special dessert which was listed as $9 and was charged $16. Otherwise, for some reason that night, service was not that great and when the server asked if we where ready to order, we said "yes" and then she proceeded to tell us she would be right back!

Just fabulous food! The steaks were among the best I’ve had. Luxurious restaurant and setting. The ambiance improved when the sun set. There is an abundance of staff that take care of you perfectly without interrupting your meal. Will dine there again! Worth the $$$$.

Had to send the steak back; too long a time for it to come back and even then it wasn't cooked properly. Asked for medium rare; first time came back medium well; second time came back super raw. Nothing was offered for the inconvenience of eating my meal when my friend had finished his. There are much better steakhouses in DC

This is always a great venue for lunch as the location is great and the food is delicious. It is on the more expensive category, so it is most appropriate for business-type luncheon meetings.

I've been to countless high-end steakhouses, and in my opinion BLT is slightly overrated. My girlfriend and I both ordered the NY strip steak. It was cooked just fine, but the meat was tough. It was not worth the $55 price tag. While we were eating, the manager came over with a small gift from the chef. He stated "try this and I'll tell you what it is". So my girlfriend and I went ahead and tried it. Come to find out the dish is cow tongue. It actually tasted pretty good, and I'm very willing to try new foods. My girlfriend on the other hand wasn't very fond of it. It weirded her out. It was very nice of the manger to give us a complementary dish, but with the dish being cow tongue, he should have made that more clear, as not everyone is very keen and willing to try it. My girlfriend was not happy. I said something to the manager about it, and he was polite and understanding of the situation. After a couple minutes the chef came out. He stated "so what was wrong?", and I went ahead and explained the situation. And then he proceeded to argue, stating how it was meat. (Cow tongue is a muscle). I mentioned how I understand his point of view, but it is a muscle. He then proceeded to look at my girlfriend and stated "so was your steak good then?" in an extremely rude demeanor. Moral of the story, if you are serving someone cow tongue, you should probably state what it is, because some individuals are not going to like it, and lastly, the chef is extremely rude. Overall, if you're in DC and looking for a good steakhouse, I do not recommend BLT. I recommend The Palm DC for a good steak.

We had a nice table near the front. Not crowded with others. Our server was excellent; a good balance of competent and funny. Our food was good—the steak was a little dry and I don’t like sauces. The seafood bouillon was good the popovers were amazing!!! We also had mushrooms, kale, and Brussels sprouts; all good. The peanut butter chocolate mousse was wonderful and carrot cake was fine. We appreciated the menu that said Happy Anniversary.

We visited DC several times while our son was doing an internship there. Each time we made it a point to return to BLT. The service and food are consistently outstanding. Our waiter Kevin was a pleasure to work with during this last visit. Ambience is quiet if you go around 6-6:30, thereafter it does get noisier. I would recommend BLT without hesitation.
