The maitre d could not find my Open Table reservation when we arrived at the restaurant. (I had received a text that I had responded to and confirmed my reservation earlier in the day.) He asked to see my phone and said “your reservation was last night” when I scrolled up to the actual date and time and showed him, he looked at his coworker and said “seat them in the bar”. So I felt like we didn’t get the full experience by sitting in the prettiest part of the restaurant. The wait staff, manager and the food was exceptional. The manager discounted a small portion of our bill to make up for the poor seating.

This was one of the best experiences in a restaurant ever. Serving us the Anniversary Desert at the end made my wife feel so very special, to that I am very thankful. The meal was off the charts!

Unfortunately the wagyu strip was a massive disappointment. Perfect medium rare but not seasoned at all and 99% fat free. Super nice bartenders and friendly, welcoming vibe.

This is my favorite restaurant in Washington, D.C. The Trump Hotel is beautiful and exhilarating with it's massive atrium and chandeliers and the huge hanging American flag. The food was delicious. and the sound level perfect for conversation. I hardly ever go anywhere else.

Great service and absolutely delicious. Consult the sommelier for wonderful wine pairings - you won’t be disappointed! Not to mention the wonderful side-cars available for your main entrée.

We asked the porterhouse steak to be " burnt on the outside and pink in the inside". They could not do that successfully.

The ambiance is excellent. The lobby of Trump International provides the perfect environment for the restaurant. From the popovers to the wines, everything was well presented and prepared. The bacon clothesline has to be tried. Our seared scallop and filet mignon entrees were delicious and were well presented. The apple tart we split for dessert provided a wonderful ending to a great meal. Definitely will return the next time in Washington!

The filet was not cooked to order and was very tough with gristle throughout. Others in my party also said it was not good. So sorry, we expected more from a nice steakhouse. Service was good. So thank you for that.

As our 1st experience it was outstanding. The only miscue was the length of time for the meals to arrive, meaning they were not extremely late it was just that there seemed to be a long time between courses?

Caramelized Bacon was amazing (try it with the bread to make a mini-sandwich). Bone-in Filet melted like butter, and the Dover Sole was incredible. Ambiance was great. and we will be back.

Note: Try a lot and bring leftovers home...they make for a great lunch the next day!

This evening was to celebrate our 20th anniversary and we were joined by friends celebrating their 10th. The staff truly made it a special evening. The food and service were impeccable. One of the many things I like about this restaurant is that it is quite and you can speak without shouting as well as you are not crowded by other tables and guests. The attention to detail at BLT Prime is without comparison.

For this type of "luxuty" dinning service was very bad. I have to wait for table service several times, and once I ran out of drink on the middle of the meal and no waitress service.

Ambience is by far one of the most outstanding you’ll find in DC, but the service and food are a very close first or second. One of my favourite dining experiences in America.

David Burke in the Trump International in DC is truly incredible.

The services was top notch, the food was extremely well prepared and presented.

The space itself is one of the coolest I've ever visited.

Great food, great environment, poor service. The waiter was far more interested in the large party seated nearby. We had to ask for the rest of the bottle of wine we purchased after our glasses were taken. Overall, unsatisfied given the amount of money spent.

Pre-dinner drinks at the bar started off a very good evening at this top quality restaurant at the Trump International Hotel.

Great table on the second floor overlooking the main bar and lounge of the hotel. The staff were very attentive and knowledgeable, especially the wine waiter who was happy to spend time explaining how and where some of the more expensive wines were made and came from. The NY Strip and Filet Mignon were cooked perfectly and deliciously soft and tender. We were not too keen on the creamed spinach as it was a little too garlicky. No room for dessert but they brought us some lovely complimentary petit fours.

When the bill came they had missed off the bar drinks , so we told them, which they very much appreciated, so much so that when they returned with the amended bill they advised us that they had not charged us for the spinach and the bar drinks were on the house due to our honesty, can’t complain about that !

Overall a great place, friendly, polite staff, delicious food and great wine. And then to top it all off the hotel doorman called their limousine to take us back to our hotel for free. Fantastic.

Provide a round table that was very cramped for eight adults. When asked about a totally open table that would readily accommodate us, manager had attitude. Reluctantly, he switched us which seemed to take forever. Did not sit well with our guests/clients as they were standing around waiting. The wine steward did a tremendous job. Service was otherwise slow. Hopefully, it was an off night. I would definitely try BLT Prime another time in the future.
