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.

Loved every minute of our meal. 5 of us out together celebrating a birthday for one of us. Steak was amazing. We fought over the horseradish sauce it was so good. I was worried it would be too casual for a special occasion based on the pictures, but it was perfect. Thanks for a memorable meal!

Excellent food, menu-educated servers, but slightly overbearing service.. felt that the server forced drink pairings and desert on our table. However, the staff was super generous making our anniversary memorable by offering champagne and a cake with candle - nice touch!

Everything was AMAZING! The Chef came out and asked us how our meal was and he found out it was my birthday and surprised us with a personalized desert plate…. So unexpected but not, considering it is BLT after all!

Wow! What a great restaurant. I had been to BLT many times many years ago and like it then, but wanted to give it a try again after not coming in a long while. What a pleasant surprise to find the food was delicious, the staff was so kind and attentive and the restaurant was top notch. I highly recommend trying or returning to BLT for a wonderful night out in DC.

Service was lacking. Waiter took order, and didn’t return for an hour. Cocktails were drank and no service to reorder, salad for sharing was brought to the table with no plates, NY Strip was cut wrong and cooked wrong, medium rare steak was dry and tough.

I always enjoy the food here. It's my favorite steakhouse in DC. I had bacon, a filet, onion rings and mousse, all of which were excellent. Service was a little off. My drinks were generally refilled very quickly, but the servers made little mistakes that they shouldn't in a restaurant of this caliber.

Nice folks. Quiet outside {Empty, too]. BUT, steak was over cooked; glass of champagne flat (both were replaced). And when I paid with a credit card, they forgot to return the card. Glad I noticed. Place needs work

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!

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
