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.

too many steak restaurant choices in the area to be so lax with service. They really need to step up their game !

BLT was great. Our waiter was attentive and answered all our questions. We started with a salad and the roasted beets. And we had the Cowboys steak, which was large enough to share and my daughters shared the filet mignon. Both were flavorful and juicy and cut like butter. We will be returning.

Our second time here and BLT has, somehow, topped itself. The staff is incredibly friendly and informative; both our waiter and the cocktail manger enjoyed chatting with us and really made took the evening from good to great. We will definitely be returning for a third visit.

Stand out dish: Branzino

The bone in cowboy was amazing. I loved the Brussel sprouts as well. It was a busy service on Valentines and we waited 30 minutes despite having a reservation. Then once seated our table was missing a chair so I had to awkwardly wait on the staff finding a chair. That said, was the best steak I’ve had in DC!

Delicious steaks as always but we went on Valentine's Day and the service (and overcooked Popovers) suffered for it.

Our meal got off to a rocky start with our drinks taking forever- but the staff more than made up for it by buying a round and desert. The food is outstanding, wish they could find a way to separate the bar from the dining room as it is so loud.

This was the 2nd time I went to BLT none week and each experience was amazing, the service, the greeting, the valet and the food was amazing. We ordered The cowboy and filet mignon could have easily been shared with 4 people instead of two. The chef came our and checked on us and we reported it was amazing. We will be heading back soon

Had my first bad steak at BLT. Tough and flavorless. I didn’t say anything to my waiter because I was having an important conversation with our dinner guest, but man I was disappointed.

Also, the apple cobbler was extremely disappointing as well.

Very bummed at how different this experience was compared to my many visits in the past.

The service was terrific. The food was as expected (the lobster dumplings are a must). The wine list is top notch. There are some very nice bottles on there. Great experience and will be back again.

We came in late but had a reservation. Usually this is one of my favs. Not that night. Mashed potatos were served cool, almost cold and the Kansas City cut - which smelled wonderful - was amazingly bland to the taste and a bury overcooked from what we ordered.

I'll chalk it up to a bad night, time of day thing and will go there again. Hope this was an isolated incident and not a harbinger of things to come.

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.

For a city filled with overstuffed (often self-important) locals and visitors -- and also overstuffed with restaurants of all types (including self-important ones) -- BLT Steak is among the best. Reliable, professional, DELICIOUS, a bit pricey (but worth the cost!), and not as full of itself as many other local eateries. BLT Steak is located in more than one city, and while I've visited many of them, I was delighted to learn that a great deal of latitude is accorded to each location... which explains the very personal "feel" to this restaurant. GREAT drinks. FANTASTIC steaks (and well worth the price!).

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.

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.

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 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.
