Solid steakhouse lunch — you get what you need, how you need it
This is my favorite steakhouse in DC. The food is consistently excellent and the service is generally solid. On this occasion service left a bit to be desired and the pacing of the meal was far too fast, but the steak, the bacon, the spinach and the strawberry sundae were stellar.
we did not get our steak leftovers which is very disappointing
For my first time in DC, this place was the first recommendation for food. We were just blown away. From their great selection of whiskeys, their craft cocktails, and the amazing, friendly service, the experience was fantastic. I love that they give you the recipe card for their popovers, even though I will most likely not recreate them as well! The porterhouse with jalapeño mashed potatoes holds a special place in my heart.
Work group dinner. Wait staff were superb - excellent sense of humor, engagement and service! Thanks to Molly and the team!
The New Year's Eve tasting menu was excellent....definitely would go back there again! Service was great and we certainly had a great time there.
Went there for NYE dinner. Great atmosphere. Reservations were at 945pm and we weren’t seated until 1015.. I guess it was okay since it was a special night.
Our orders of the wagyu steaks were great! But I do not recommend ordering the mash potatoes as they were really runny and tasted like instant boxed mash potatoes. I can’t explain.. it was completely tasteless. The waiter at the end even asked to take it off the check since he noticed it was left almost not touched. (It was that bad!)
Overall great service for a busy night. They gave us party favors as well as champagne to ring in the new year.
Ed was excellent server! Great food quality and service always!
It is a tradition for is to come to BLT on Christmas Eve for about the past 7 years - and it will continue! Food was great as always and the chef, Michael, came out to speak to us about short ribs and even hooked up a sample!
We had a excellent lunch!! Very nice meal full of holiday cheer!!
BLT always gets an A-Plus, except at night when it gets far too loud!!

The food was excellent and I enjoyed the service provided by the staff. Always a good choice for lunch or dinner.
Amazing food and service! Highly recommend. The popovers are to die for!
They were very generous since it was my wife’s birthday, which was much appreciated.
The food was fantastic, but the service was what made it memorable. One of the best staffs in all of DC. Everyone was absolutely amazing. Our waiter especially.
We were celebrating me getting a job. The service was horrible. It took forever to get our drinks but our food was rushed. I felt as if we were being pushed out the door. We were almost dine with our meal and our drinks came out. Whenever we wanted to find our waiter he was no where in sight. We eat here often and it was not up to par and truthfully I Don’t want to go back. It was clear management knew something was wrong as two different managers asked if everything was okay. We were so annoyed we just paid and left.
Office Christmas gathering
Service was amazing. The ambience was good. The restaurant itself had character. The downfall was the food. The food was overpriced and did not taste as good as it should.
The restaurant was very busy and very loud. They were not excepting this kind of crowd, according to our server. The manager took our order. The server was running around as the lunch time was very busy and we had to flag down other servers for items that we were missing. The Caesar salad was so-so at best. It had so much lettuce, and hardly ANY parmesan cheese that I had to ask two more times. No croutons, only parmesan crisps which I had to ask for more as well. Ordered with grilled shrimp and there were three. This was a business luncheon and I was entertaining a client; she had not been here before as it's over her price range, and she would not recommend either. Her American Wagyu beef sandwich was tough and warm when served. The manager did say when she ordered it that it would be tough if cooked well done; so she got medium well and still tough by the time she finished it. Very disappointing because the ambiance is very nice, but the food is lacking certainly for the price point they are asking.
Absolutely wonderful experience
This was our first dining experience at BLT. We selected BLT because of the location convenient to our hotel and the availability of dining vouchers. We delayed our reservation by 30 minutes and were pleasantly accommodated. Phil greeted us on arrival and took our coats. He led us to a nice private corner booth. BLT's wine list is extensive, quality, and expensive. I narrowed the selections and consulted with the manager before choosing the 2016 Stags' Leap Petite Sirah. The wine was decanted after presentation. It was an excellent choice. We shared a wedge salad and thoroughly enjoyed the filet mignon (12 oz) and Wagyu skirt (10 oz) with vidalia onion rings and Brussel sprouts. I selected the skirt because of size. Our lead server, Eddie, described it perfectly. Be aware that all the steaks are large and can likely be shared or carried home. The sides are intended to be shared. The steaks were prepared as ordered and the meal was flawlessly served. We enjoyed the peanut butter mouse for dessert. There are many servers at BLT. We were greeted and cared for by at least 5 individuals. Eddie explained that BLT is normally busy and crowded when the legislators are in town. But on this Monday night before Thanksgiving it was quiet and extremely enjoyable. BLT is on par with other upscale steak houses (i.e., Mortons, Ruths Chris, and Flemings). I believe, however, that I enjoyed dining at BLT more.
The top cap is the best steak in DC.
We always enjoy BLT! Our server, TJ, was very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. The staff also welcomed us and treated my husband, the birthday boy, with lots of love. YUMMY GREAT TIME!
I came with a friend to celebrate her birthday & the staff dud a great job of making her feel special -from a special “happy birthday“ message printed on the menu, to immediately serving sparkling, followed by a scrumptious amuse Bouche, then a delectable steak, they attended to our every need and & wrapped up with a delicious dessert topped off by candle! Thank you so much for a wonderful celebration exclamation
Wonderful food and service, what more do you want.
Unacceptable service. Totally ignored. I had a 12:15 lunch reservation with a guest visiting from out of town. We were seated promptly, served iced tea and bread. Never checked on again. At 1:30, our order still wasn't taken. I asked for a manager who said that they did not want to interrupt our conversation. Unbelievable. Did they think we had all day to have lunch? They did nothing for us. Didn't even send over an appetizer. We left without ever getting lunch. I was horrified and extraordinarily embarrassed. I will not eat hear again. You should not either. There are many great steakhouses in DC. This is not one of them. After we left, they "canceled" my reservation so as to prevent me from writing a review. I alerted Open Table who reinstated it. Terrible service; terrible management. Stay away.
It is a nice setting and the service was prompt, pleasant and efficient. However, I was very disappointed with the Lobster Cobb salad - it was $29 I believe and, of course, you don't expect a significant amount of lobster but there were literally two small strands of lobster in it. I felt like a sucker for paying that much for lettuce (or maybe I was paying for the popovers, which are of course great!).
Ambience is good, but my steak wasn't nearly as tender as I have had elsewhere. Was wondering of they are serving aged steaks? It had been a year+ since we had eaten there. Now I remember why.
Fabulous all around dining experience. BLT is our go to for Steak in Dc.
My wife and I ate there 8 years ago and really enjoyed it! We're happy to say that BLT didn't disappoint this time either.
Amazing food! Fantastic service and atmosphere. It is a noisy restaurant so if you are looking for an intimate evening not the best place.
Service was great.
I usually love BLT - always a treat to go. But I had the special NY Strip - it was really tough, with a lot of fat marbled in it, I think I just got a bad cut. Service was outstanding. All and all, it was okay.
Outstanding food and service. Definitely recommend and will return!
Terrific atmosphere, outstanding food and staff. A great place to enjoy a great dining experience.
Service was great. Food is always good. Good place for business lunches.
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.
We overpriced. Does not compare to Charlie palmers.
Excellent prompt and consistent service. The food was exceptional as always.
