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.

This place is a great steakhouse, but also a good restaurant, with great options for persons who don’t want steak.

On a recent visit BLT service and food reminded me why its a Top Steakhouse and dining destination in DC. The service was immaculate which is hard to find in the current environment as staffs are cut. The food and wine recommendations were superb.

With regards to COVID, BLT has both indoor and outdoor seating. The have appropriate spacing too. Guests at this location were also abiding by the standard protocols for DC dining.

It’s just fine. It reminds me of a cafeteria. Service is great — very friendly. I had the scallops, not bad! My husband had the waygu strip and to be honest it was dry. He’s not picky so not the end of the world for him but I could most definitely tell and do without it. Amazing desert! It was something with peanut butter. Wouldn’t go back but glad we tried it.

We were frankly concerned about how BLT would be faring in the wake of COVID lockdowns, but they didn't miss a beat. The food was excellent and all the usual flourishes were there. My hangar steak was possibly the tastiest steak I've had in years, and my wife's lamb chops were fantastic -- all cooked perfectly, I might add. We're looking forward to returning soon!

We were not able to have the wedding of our dreams due to covid but we thought we should at least toast the day at a nice restaurant. They made our night and for just a moment we were able to truly celebrate the joy of love.

This restaurant was not following social distancing AT ALL. We went for dinner trying to support local restaurants before the shut down thinking a restaurant like BLT would be adhering to the restrictions. People were seated right next to each other without 6 feet of distance. Servers felt badly, it wasn’t their fault, though. The restaurant was easily 75% filled. Next time, we will go to Joe’s which is adhering to the guidelines and working to keep their customers safe. Very disappointed in a place that we’ve frequented for over 10 years.

I always enjoy going to any BLT 😍 food is always great service even better.
We usually never get a table on short notice, should have been skeptical when I called and reservations so easily. Our Uber go only get us a couple of blocks from restaurant, they were having a rally or protest at the BLM plaza, we were yelled at and after dinner we had to walk several blocks. Had Roman candles or fireworks 💥 shot our direction
Be careful

We enjoyed our first visit to BLT Steak DC. They were very accommodating with our reservation time due to traffic and street closures. The servers were very attentive and helpful. The food and service were excellent as well as the presentation of our meals. I enjoyed the subdued atmosphere of the establishment as far as the noise level. I cannot stand restaurants that have very loud "background" music blaring thus making it difficult to converse or enjoy your meal. This was a last minute find due to our inability to get dinner reservations at another near by establishment in our requested time frame. BLT Steak DC was a very, very nice and pleasant surprise and we look forward to returning to DC in the future (we are from California) and to once again patronize BLT Steak DC. Thank you for making our evening memorable and great.

This used to be my favorite place to go! After not going in a year and decided to treat myself I went and was disappointed in every way! The service use to be A1... no longer! My medium steak was over cooked.. and when I spoke with whoever Jesse is he distastefully shined his cellphone light on my food ... the elegant atmosphere is no longer... and the food was awful! So sad to see what used to be such an amazing place turn into what felt like a now 2 star restaurant!

It was so good to be back at BLT! Staff were gloved and masked and the tables were socially distanced, so it was a bit quieter than in the past. The food and service were still excellent. Delicious popovers, well made classic cocktails, and perfectly cooked steaks.

Very attentive staff. Safety measures in place to include masks, spacing between tables, sanitization between customers etc. food is very high-quality and delicious. Highly recommend the cowboy steak, truffle mashed potatoes and roasted Brussels sprouts. Parking garage close-by, but the restaurant does not validate.

A colleague and me had dinner here and we wanted
to split the bill. After 2 weeks we both noticed on our cc statement that we were overcharged, my colleague for $124,10 and I for $120. We signed for the correct amounts but more was charged to our cc nevertheless. Weird!
I wrote at least 4 emails to request the overcharged amount to be credited to our cc. I wrote 3 emails to the restaurantmanager Jesse Hiney. I never received a reply, and finally on december 22 the amount that I was overcharged was credited back to me. No email with an apology or reason for the mistake made.
Very dissappointed in the customer service of this restaurant. The food was fair, rhere are quite a few places with better steaks and definitely far better service. One time, never again.

Weird vibe in downtown DC, lots of police presence haven’t been there in awhile . My husband and I got the rib-eye for two as did my son and his girlfriend. Ours was awful ! Tough and almost uneatable. Mashed potatoes definitely instant !! Yuck ! We did not complain as it was only second time we met his girlfriend and didn’t want to be “those” people . We usually go to DeDeFrescos American Eagle. Won’t stray again! Very Disappointed 👎🏼

Excellent service . I always order the ribeye steak . I would suggest the chef season the steak or have the options to choose too . The Mac & cheese is very good and the kale is also . Carrot cake is excellent.
