The food was amazing. I had the filet and my husband had the cowboy steak. Both had a great flavor and cooked perfectly. The Caesar salads we had prior to the entree were one on the best I have ever had. Oh, almost forgot to mention the mashed potatoes yummmmmmm is all I have to say about those. It is pricey but the saying of “you get what you pay for “ definitely applies here. One last thing, the service was impeccable!! I will definitely go back If I am ever near one again.

Food is always consistently great and so is the service. Everyone’s making sure you’re comfortable and the restaurant seems to be very attentive to the pandemic situation by being clean, sanitized and everyone is wearing a mask. We sat inside by choice and felt very comfortable. Thank you all for being there!

The food was amazing as usual. The last couple of times I’ve just felt rushed and one of the reasons we love BLT is their nice lounge feel. Will of course go back because they are top notch 9 out of 10 when it comes to food and service.

It was really amazing to be back enjoying the food and staff at BLT. You’ve been missed! This was only my second time eating out since March and there are only a handful of places I would feel safe, BLT is one of those places. It was great to see the familiar faces that always provide such amazing service.
Welcome back!

Welcome back! Enjoyed it so much going back again this week. As always perfectly cooked steak... and the popovers. And how do you not start with the tuna tartare. Great wine selection. Attentive and unobtrusive service.

Despite it only being the second day back after a Covid-hiatus the food at BLT steak was on point and delicious as usual. The outdoor seating was comfortable and well spaced allowing for ideal alfresco dining. The service which is usually outstanding was a bit under performedOn this occasion, but it was only their second day back and as the maître d’ explained they were utilizing a new computer system. Despite that the wait staff were all masked and courteous about spacing and wore gloves. Overall a great alfresco dining experience

My husband and I came here for our one year anniversary and had an amazing experience. The food is incredible and the service is superb. We splurged and tried the Japanese A5 Wagyu and it was spectacular. The crab cake is a must as are the hen of the wood mushrooms. Honestly, everything we tried was delicious. Great experience overall, I highly recommend.

Food was good. Service was ok. Getting a refill on my iced tea was not happening, I think our drinks were empty 90% of the time.

Other than that it seemed on par with all the other high end steakhouses in the area,

In celebration of my dining companion's Birthday parade, we had a truly memorable luxurious experience. Since yesterday marked BLT's reopening in which the entire check was 50% off, it really encouraged us to go all-out and try some of the fancier food and wines. Chef Michael Bonk prepared each and every dish with the perfect seasoning and to the ideal doneness, which were then brought out in friendly and timely fashion--piping hot and fresh! The Japanese A5 Wagyu Ribeye special, Sauteed Dover Sole, and Crepe Souffle were all spectacular in execution, flavor, and temperature. Plus, the Popovers and Bone-In Ribeye were also stellar. For drinks, we splurged on glasses of Piper Heidsieck Champagne and half-bottle of 2016 Shafer "One Point Five" Cabernet Sauvignon--the perfect pairing for the Bone-In Ribeye!

All in all, BLT Steak delivered a truly amazing celebration meal thanks to all dishes being executed with tremendous precision of seasoning and texture then brought out in timely fashion to maximize the flavor/aroma. Together with fantastic service, fancy wines, and unpretentiously elegant ambiance (our table faced out towards the patio with the doors open for the cool evening), we had an absolute blast of a luxurious meal that ended up being pretty reasonable thanks to their reopening promotion!

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.

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!

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
