Oh my goodness, that has to be one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. That coupled with the fantastic service made for a lovely evening.

Everything was awesome from the perfectly cook steak and fois gras to the impeccable service. BLT Prime never disappoints. We enjoy cowboy steaks, creamed spinach, sautéed mushrooms and shallots. Our waitstaff Paul & Jamie went above and beyond to accommodate our request for oysters, espresso martinis and a extra popover to take home. We were also surprised with a birthday celebration dessert.

Excellent service and the food was exceptional. Really enjoyed the courtesy offered by staff from the moment we drove up to the property through the entirety of our visit. Loved the presentation (and taste!) of the bacon appetizer. The bread we were served was outstanding. Steaks were perfect and the desserts were very good. We will definitely be back. First class service!

The service was exceptional! Jaime was our waitress and she was so pleasant and attentive and made us feel so special. We had the chef’s 5 course tasting menu and everything was cooked to perfection and the flavors were absolutely amazing! There is nothing that I would change about our experience and we will definitely be back!

We have had several fantastic meals at BLT prime but this was horrible. I informed the waiter of my shellfish allergy when we first sat down yet he brought scallops to the table “compliments of the chef”. We ordered broccoli & mushrooms as a side with our meal and neither came. The waiter realized after we were done with dinner and brought them out (we had them boxed up). He forgot our drink order twice. The food overall was good but with the service we most likely won’t return for a while. Too pricey for such a bad experience.

Very nice, clean, and well maintained hotel.

Food was not as well as expected (over $200.00) for my wife and I. Our steaks were not cooked as good as they should have been, when we brought this to the attention of the server, her reply was to the effect of "that is how all of our steaks are cooked".

OK, if that is how all of the steaks are cooked, we will dine elsewhere, as Washington, DC has quite a few nice restaurants.

Will not be going back or recommend to family or friends.

Best food that we have ever had. From Paris to Belgium and all in between this place takes the top spot. And Isiah was the ABSOLUTE BEST server and deserves the best compensation you can offer. And he takes fantastic pictures!

Fantastic Thanksgiving experience. The food was beyond any holiday restaurant dining I have had before. Everything was wonderful, and I would highly recommend BLT Prime for special occasions. Staff was very attentive and made us very comfortable. Beautiful decor and the entire experience was exceptional.

Beautiful venue with outstanding service and food. Only issue was strong odors from adjacent table where waiter was burning Rosemary fir some dish. Odors were quite objectionable to us but fortunately dissipated in about 5-10 minutes.

Service was excellent, appetizers were terrific & we ordered steak which was wonderful, wine outstanding but, we also ordered Dover Sole and it was like chewing on a piece of rubber, which was quite surprising and we told them that it was way overcooked, we didn’t eat it and they charged us anyway...

It is always a treat to visit DC's Trump Hotel where we enjoyed a memorable meal at BLT Prime. Fantastic food & cocktails. Excellent service and charm from the outstanding server Mike. Couldn't have been more enjoyable. Thank you, BLT Prime by DB!

We were very excited to go to this restaurant inside the Trump international Hotel. When we arrived, we were blown away by the immaculate design and over the top luxury the hotel had to offer. But as we sat down for our meal, our excitement turned into shock, frustration, and then disappointment. Our server named Paul was rude, inattentive, and condescending. I don’t understand why we were not offered the same level of service as other patrons considering we were paying just the same as everyone else and ordered all three courses with drinks. The food was basic but of course overpriced. We ordered the clothesline bacon, which is literally just bacon with maple syrup, but don’t worry it’s $22. Both of us ordered the chicken, and wow! Bland, dry, and rubbery. It came with a “chicken sauce” that tasted like cheap chicken bullion mixed with soy sauce. Such a random additive was the only flavor on that plate. Because the chicken was unsalted, I guess they figured this super salty sauce would compensate, but Chef David Burke really missed the mark here. We ordered the mushroom and shallot side and the waiter Paul didn’t tell us they were out until our main course had arrived. Really!? For dessert I wanted port wine. At the end of our meal we were waiting for any waiter to come over to bring a dessert menu or check in with us, but we had to ask the bus boy what was going on. Before I ordered the desert wine, I looked up online how much a bottle would cost to purchase. On the menu, one glass of port wine was $18 but online you could purchase an entire bottle of the same wine for $5.98. Right before we left, a waitress dropped a glass one table away from us and it shattered, very understandable, but then she didn’t pick up the glass for the rest of the time we were there! Overall, I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Our entire experience was laughable and we will not forget it.

Do yourself a favor and eat at BLT Prime. Best Porterhouse I’ve ever tasted...bread, sides, etc. ... all amazing. Absolutely unquestionably, get the Clothesline Bacon appetizer...out of this world!
