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.

Fabulous dinner and service to match. New favorite Steakhouse in DC... All courses were spot on (Porterhouse for 2 rare / medium rare was perfect) and servers acted like we were the only couple in the restaurant!

Excellent service, very welcoming and natural. I ordered the Ribeye which was just ok in my opinion. We grill better steaks at home. But everything else was top notch, from the chicken pate, popovers, sides (especially the hen of woods mushrooms), burrata app, and peanut butter mousse dessert with banana ice cream.

Whenever I eat at BLT Steak, it's always an amazing experience. The service is top notch. Whether I am dining for lunch with business partners; ordering top items on a date, or dividing an entree with a friend for dinner. Every time, I feel like I am the only one in the restaurant. And that means so very much to me. The last time I dined, my server was Guillermo. He was absolutely amazing; prompt, helpful, kind, funny and knowledgeable. The food is great and consistent. One of my favorite places to dine in DC. Excellent dining experience, all around. I highly recommend BLT!

Well, I don’t think you can find a better steak in DC. The staff was amazing, friendly, and more than willing to give incredible recommendations. Meeting the chef was the tip of the iceberg! Hats off!

The food was off post pandemic - we were expecting more as this is one of our favs - could have been an off day.

We will give it some time and then another try.

Great food, friendly staff. The amount of food for the price was adequate and worth the cost; as far as your higher end steakhouses go.
Be sure to try the popovers. Very tasty

The service was absolutely fantastic along with the safety protocols in place. Our waitstaff was great. I would say the food was good, but not amazing-oh-my-god I MUST GO BACK. For the food, I wouldn’t. Therefore, the high cost point wasn’t worth it to me, but my guests did enjoy their meal and we had a nice evening. That’s what is ultimately most important - the level of service is priority over all (IMO). If it’s on the same level of consideration as Joe’s/Capital Grill/etc., not sure it is uniquely different. Thank you, however, for great service and attentiveness.

The food at BLT is predictably very good every time. The oysters were superb, and the tuna tartare and avocado is worth going back for and ordering a double order! The steak was fine – – nothing special – – but their sauces are really well done. Cream spinach is to drool over, and the onion rings are a great if fatty addition. And of course, Just going to have the pop overs would make it all worthwhile

Because of COVID and the fact the we were eating early, ambience was non-existent but we had a good time catching up with family. Food was excellent, service was incredible and, overall, it was a great evening.

The food here is always superb. I had bacon as an appetizer, filet as an entree, kale as a side and mousse for dessert. The kale was a bit too crunchy, while everything else was delicious. Service was somewhat inconsistent; some servers were very attentive and some were less so.

The COVID menu was a bit limited; they were out of strip steaks and sparkling rosé. The special appetizer of the day - grilled calamari steak - was beautifully presented, but was not grilled well and lacked any flavor. The porterhouse we got instead of the strip steaks was delicious. All in all, a good experience.

My family and I made reservations to attend for Easter Sunday 2021. We were able to enjoy the great weather and sit outside. BLT did a great job with providing proper social distance between tables. Our server (Benedict) was absolutely amazing! The steak and eggs were delicious but I should have ordered Medium Rare instead of Medium to really appreciate the Wagyu.

Gracious with a capital G. We were greeted by literally every member of the staff with a warm "Happy Easter". The setting is truly spectacular. Impeccable service. BLT may be David Burke's best restaurant and I am from his home state. We could not resist the popovers and the signature bacon on a clothesline is insanely good. Our main courses were tasty and plated beautifully. The staff knows how to put "special" in special occasion. Political haters are going to hate. Will be back again next time in DC.

We celebrated our son’s 10th birthday at BLT. They were fantastic - we were 12+ feet from the closest diners, the service was impeccable as always, and they spoiled my son with desserts. We had reservations for the patio but it was too cold - we were not certain about indoor but they made us very comfortable.

We will be back again soon!
