We had a blast, excellent wine, great ribeye and nice sides. Has the asparagus and the creamed spinach. Unfortunately we did not get to eat dessert as a fire broke out in the wine cellar and they had to evacuate and shut down for the night. But maybe we will come back and try dessert too. Staff was very friendly.... More

Positives...the service was great and my husband enjoyed his ribeye. Negatives...I think it's ridiculous that they only offer one size for their various cuts of steak. I wanted a filet mignon, but didn't get it because they only offer it in 12 oz.! I wouldn't be able to eat it all and was unable to take it home so it... More

We had the concierge make reservations for this restaurant on a Saturday, November 5th. Let me tell you, we are sure glad we dined here. This was our all around best dining experience while we were in DC. We both ordered the Filet Mignon cooked medium and the truffle mashed potatoes. This meal was cooked to perfection, the steak needed... More

Listen fellow traveler, if you eat out as much as I do (I travel a lot for work AND for vacations), you probably have a steak house you like. Compare ANY of them to BLT steak, and specifically the one in Washington DC. The food is beyond compare, as always...but the service in this location is so good, that it... More

Our hotel recommend BLT for dinner and we weren't disappointed. Fantastic wine and great food. It's not a cheap restaurant but you won't be disappointed.

Whenever I visit Washington D.C., all my friends know I need to have a meal at BLT! They start you out with complimentary "pop overs" fresh out of the oven, with whipped butter and sea salt! I tried for the first time the cut called "Top cap", it melts in your mouth. I was reluctant to try as it is... More

The service is top of the line. Your glass won't be empty for a second. The steak is as good as steaks get at a great steak house. It is also very nosey. Acoustics that can bombard you. The decor is very pleasant. If I was only Judging the quality of service and food, I would give it a five.... More

I've been here several times, mostly for lunch and am never disappointed. Lobster roll is full of meaty chunks and served with. Sweet potato fries. Steak sandwich with provolone and onions is melt in your mouth tender. Also lobster Cobb salad is huge. For dinner I have tried the filet and the hangar steak. Always perfectly cooked and seasoned.

We had a 7pm reservation for 12 on Friday 10/21. Unfortunately, half of the party ran in to an airline problem. We called from the runway during our 3 hour "divert". We explained that we had to change the 7pm reservation to 6 people, and the other 6 would be there at 8pm (it ended up only 4 of us... More

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.
