In my monthly travels to DC for business, I always make it to BLT for dinner. It’s food is good, but service and ambiance great. Prices are on the high end, but it is the perfect “expense account” establishment restaurant close to the White House.

Probably the best cooked Filet mignon I have ever seen or ate. The popovers were light crispy and tasty. Had one for dessert. The chopped salad was delicious. The oil cured olives cut the feta and sweet corn beautifully. The East and West oysters were wonderful. We liked the smaller but tastier West coast oyster the best. Excellent service and wines. The carrot cake was not the typical. It was more of a carrot based spice cake with a dark caramel and on site made ginger ice cream. Two thumbs up. Great night out!

I went for a birthday dinner. It was awful! The popovers, carrots, and Dover Sole were cold and rubbery. The fish and carrots were sent back and the fish was like eating hot rubber. My filet was tough and didn’t have a lot of flavor. I make a better streak myself. They didn’t have Bloody Mary mix or prime rib, and they ran out of syrup for coke. It was 7:15pm on a Friday night. The service wasn’t great. I spent over $200 for an awful meal and service that wasn’t worth a $30 tip. The noise was really loud. You couldn’t hear the person sitting next to you. Don’t go! You would get a better meal staying at home. It was the worst birthday dinner I ever had!

We had a quiet business dinner there at my client's request. It is one of his favorites when in town. My firm has a holiday dinner at BLT every year as well, so it was an easy choice. The service was perfect and the food was served promptly.

Das Essen können wir sehr empfehlen. Der Service ist ebenfalls sehr gut. Ob Fisch oder Fleich
absolut TOP! Wir waren zwischen den Jahren da. Was etwas gestört hat war unser Platz am Küchen/Serviceeingang. Wir hatten verschiedene Steak´s alle auf den Punkt zubereitet wie bestellet und die Trüffel-Pommes einfach unglaublich gut.

Jederzeit wieder TOP

PS: 4-5 Sterne für das Essen
PS: 3-4 Sterne für das Ambiente, für Europäer gewöhnungsbedürftig, kleiner Tisch für 4 - Personen und etwas dunkel - like US

The filet mignon was outstanding as was the porterhouse. The dining experience begins with wonderful and warm popovers. The topcat cut of wagyu is good but our table preferred the taste /tenderness of the filet. Also, some of the meat comes with more of a crust (purposeful part of their cooking process) than some in our party desired. Sides of mashed potatoes and Brussel sprouts were delicious. Overall, a great Christmas Eve dinner close to the White House and national tree.

Visiting DC for hubby’s bday. Outstanding service, food and atmosphere! My husband could see the TV from our table so it was his idea of a great night; Steaks, football and nice restaurant all in one place. We will come back every time we come to DC.

The double cut rack of lamb is just amazing especially with the garlicky kale with pine nuts. My friend wanted to try the beef tongue and it was surprisingly good with the risotto. Their complimentary patte is so good. My friend goes there for their bread the giant turnovers but we may have found new reason to go back I had the best dessert velvet in my life - crepe soufflé. Just try it it’s just sooo yummy and light and the passion fruit sauce is just the right touch!!

It was a busy day so the restaurant was very crowded for lunch. We wanted a quiet place to talk but this wasn’t it. Service was so-so with waiters and wait staff rushing about. Still the popovers are the best.

Wow! First time here and our whole table was super impressed! There was not one miss during the entire meal. The little chicken pate amuse bouche was tasty and smooth. The appetizers were great -- we had the crab cake and the grilled, smoked bacon. Salads were tasty -- beet salad, chopped vegetable and the simple yet amazing Bibb lettuce salad (the mustard dressing was to die for!)

Kansas City strip steak was very good. The filet mignon at 12 oz. easily served two with a little left for the doggie bag. We had the Brussel sprouts, Mac and cheese, hen of the woods mushrooms and mashed potatoes for our sides. Loved them all, especially the mushrooms and the Mac and cheese. Our teenage daughter pronounced the mashed potatoes "the best she's ever had!" The enormous popovers were delicious -- delivered piping hot with butter and a shake of sea salt to sprinkle. The popover recipe tucked in the basked was a nice touch.

Dessert, port and coffees rounded out a fantastic meal. Service was friendly, efficient and professional, really a cut above.

Ambiance was really nice, a little bit noisy but not too bad.

You can just tell this is an extremely well run restaurant. Highly recommend.

This is an excellent steakhouse located close to the White House. Vastly better than some neighboring steak houses (Morton's/ Bobby Vans/Ruths Chris). The steak was cooked to perfection with a delicious char. Service is professional, knowledgable and attentive. The whole staff was a pleasure to interact with. Will return soon!

 (Atlanta)·Dined on December 7, 2017

The BLT Steak that used to be in the W Atlanta, where I went often, was warm, relaxing, and inviting. But, it closed a year ago — maybe that wasn’t what people were seeking. I was looking forward to visiting this one, but the experiences couldn’t have been more different. There’s little danger of this one going under — it was packed. I will say the food and the drinks were terrific, and the service was highly efficient even if it had a little edge to it. But the room was just cacaphonous and the atmosphere could have been that of any other high volume faux luxury restaurant anywhere. I wouldn’t return if I were with anyone with whom I actually wanted to have a conversation.

I'm normally a huge BLT fan, but tonight was off. We had to push our reservation a couple of times because I was hosting an event prior to dinner that kept running long and the staff at BLT was very accommodating and understanding. Unfortunately it wasnt a great experience when we got there. We were seated at a table right by the door that was pretty chilly and had a lot of foot traffic. Unfortunately that foot traffic wasn't our waiter. What is normally an exceptional experience was marred by slow response and delivery. The food was good overall but we had a couple of complaints about the temperature of the steaks, they were just a bit off. At the end of the meal we paid, splitting the large check among three people. We went to walk out and were summoned back in by the staff because they messed up the check and we had to wait for them to straighten it out.

All in all not awful just not up to their usual standards. Unfortunately we had a couple of new visitors who are steak house lovers and they were a little disappointed with the experience for the cost. I had talked it up and it was not the best this go round.
