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.

Fantastic meal and service. The restaurant was fairly noisy (nosier than other BLTs we have been to). But overall the experience was fantastic. It’s pricey, but on par with high end steak houses and this is definitely at the top of my list of places to go for good steaks.

Too pricey and they try and upset you on everything. If you're going to drop $100 a head before wine, there are better places for you to eat in DC.

Birthday dinner with the family. Kids loved the cheese popovers, Mac and cheese, and short ribs. Special menu for the birthday occasion which was nice.

Wine bottle list is solid but the BTG selection is pretty generic.

Overall great service and experience

We came here to celebrate before our baby is born (prob way fewer date nights in the near future!)
We had a great time! Service was great and food was delicious! We got the a5 wagyu potato cake starter with the popovers, split a Caesar salad, wagyu top tip, branzino, Mac and cheese, and potato steak fries. It was so good we ate it all!
The food came out piping hot which was perfect.
Can’t wait to come back with friends!

Food was delicious our server wasn't very attentive and they gave my glass of wine to the wrong table it sat on their table once server figured out it went to the wrong table they picked it up and placed it on ours. I think they should have brought a fresh glass of wine.

I don't ever write reviews because no-one; especially me, has time to write a 17 page critique on the asparagus. However I will this time.

I have had the fortunate opportunity to dine at many different restaurants from NY to Miami to the mid west. In my mind I keep a running total of top 5, this dinner just beat out all the rest to the number 1 spot. Not just because of the food but also the experience. I dined at BLT's arch nemesis two nights prior and let me tell you, that place was terrible, I thought did the worst experience influence this to the top spot? Nope, it really was that good.

From the second I walked in the experience was great, zero wait time as our waiter JT greeted my wife, two sons, and I. Talking to him I felt like I was with one of my old friends from the neighborhood. His personality and approach was the best, when it came to attention he was always there, unlike the other place Mastro (don't go there). The manager at BLT who I nick-named Azezam (his name was aziz) came over more than once to talk with us, we all shared stories like we were old friends. When my youngest son (11) had questions about whiskey Azezam took him aside to their bartender so that he could have all his questions answered. (wonderful)

Finally the meal JT explained in detail the different cuts of meat to my wife with such poise it was impressive. IDK if anyone heard me say to my family, relax lets enjoy this but we were not rushed, when the meal came it was timed perfect, the food was spectacular. the appetizers that came out were perfect for a start, the steak was perfect, absolutely cooked right. I even took the bone home and gnawed on it at 2 am.
for reference I have a peter luger credit card and have ate there often, BLT puts peter luger (brooklyn) to shame.

the wine that was shared at the end was delicious, and to my surprise one of my favorite whiskey was on the menu (Sinatra)

Thank you to our new friends, we will be back some day.

What an incredible night! This place is absolutely fantastic!! The food was divine. The wine was paired beautifully through James, the beverage director. He has impeccable taste!!

I recommend starting with the seafood tower paired with champagne. We shared the porterhouses and it was ON POINT!!!

Highly recommend.

This place was excellent. Naerida, the bar tender, and Ben, our waiter were awesome. Great ambiance. The food was to die for. I had the ribeye (on special that day). I love this cut. I’m still trying to decide if it’s better than the ribeye at Mastros. Either way it was excellent. The entire experience was perfect!!!

Everything was perfect! We were not rushed through dinner. Our waiter (from Guatemala) was outstanding. He made great recommendations both with food and wine. We were able to have a leisurely dinner. Water glasses and wine glasses were filled promptly, but unobtrusively. Everyone was quite pleased with their food selections. Would highly recommend this restaurant!

This was my 4th eating at this restaurant and we still had a great experience! My husband and I had the steak, which was a little over cooked but it was still good. My son had the Branzino, which I think they need to change the pairing. Fish was Awesome but the mixture (maybe olives) it sat on top of was not too good. A bit too salty for my taste. Other than that no issues.

BLT is a standard for me when I want a quality steak dinner where the steak is sublime and the side dishes are equally delicious. My dining partner was eating at BLT for the first time and he loved the steak. He thought the presentation of the meal to be innovated and it added to the dining experience. Like me, he is looking forward to returning.

The steaks were excellent. The filets were melt in you mouth tender with the perfect dry aged texture and the red wine sauce was delicious. The asparagus and brussell sprouts were very good. The truffle mashed potatoes were a little thin and the creamed spinach was very salty. The pop overs were very good. Our server was delightful and the food and beverages were all brought to our party of twelve in a timely and professional manner.

BLT Steak has several operations in the US and around the world. I’ve dined at many, and all I’ve experienced have been terrific - including this one! Service was excellent, the beef is oh-so-good, and the “casual, but slightly sophisticated” ambiance is lovely.

This restaurant is strongly recommended for outstanding steaks and wonderful sides. The drinks are great, too!

Service and food were excellent. The AC wasn’t working properly and it detracted from what was a special birthday dinner. The dining room was pushing 80 degrees and management didn’t offer a solution. Maybe open the door to the lobby of the building and get some circulation.

The food is not good, it’s that simple. Both our steaks were poor. We ordered steaks to keep it simple—no dice. The cocktails were great and the appetizers ok. You can find far better food for a faction of the price. If you are on a biz trip I suggest going there for cocktails and apps and then Marcel’s or Oval Room for main course. I won’t go back even if someone else is paying for it.
