Great food and service, would not expect anything less.
We came here Saturday 3/14. I truly understand everything regarding the Virus, but the lack of service was bothersome. We paid a lot of money only to wait 10 minutes, we got asked our dinner order before our drink order, 45 minutes for our salads, and then our entrees came out quickly after... it wasn’t properly spaced out. I feel like I’d rather have gone to another steakhouse in DC.
Another fabulous dinner at BLT Prime. Paul, our server, made us right at home. We started with cocktails Martini for me and classic Mohito for my wife. The cheese puffs are wonderful — too delicious to pass up. We shared a gigantic shrimp cocktail and the wonderful clothesline bacon — savor the pickle at the finish glazed with brown sugar and bacon drippings. My wife enjoyed the 10pz filet and I savored the most delicious NY Strip. Cooked to perfection. Melted in my mouth. Paul recommended a house Cab Sav that was a terrific compliment. We enjoyed seated asparagus an spiced thing up with crazy corn as sides. To be honest it was too much food and we ended up taking home our entrees to be enjoyed the next day. Finally, we finished with a refreshing lemon sorbet. The service was excellent — efficient, but unhurried. We felt like we could have stayed all evening if we had wished. The BLT Prime is great for conversation and people watching. It is our favorite for special occasions. We will certainly be back again.
Staff and service were both amazing !
Food was amazing, service was impeccable and the view was great! You have to try the candied bacon! We definitely will be back!
Best experience hands down ever. Gracie is amazing.
We have been to this place many times and we love it. This time was not the same.
1. Our server was in a bad mood and in many occasions brought the wrong order. He even sent with the waitress a champagne to the table and we said we didn’t order but she thought it was a gift for my husband’s birthday so he started drinking it. Some minutes later the server storms to our table, grabs the glass very fast and puts it on the table of another person (I imagine the person who actually ordered it). I didn’t have the time to let the server know that he had already drank from the glass....
2. We are big about meats and we like it medium (pink in the middle). They cooked it medium well. This is strange for a recognizable steak house.
3. My husband loves their chocolate soufflé and he ordered it for his birthday. Of course they brought the wrong dessert and said that it was the one available. At the end we asked again and said that they did have the chocolate soufflé available...
Hopefully it was just a one time bad luck visit and it comes back again because we really like this restaurant.
This was truly the best experience we could have imagined. Celebrating our engagement at BLT Prime couldn’t have get anymore special. The staff were the friendliest and most accommodating group you could ask for. The food and drink selection was phenomenal. The managers the evening we went made every second special from the moment we walked in until we left to the lobby for a couple celebratory drinks. Gracie and Jeff are truly amazing and we highly recommend this spot to anybody and will continue to make it a special spot for as long as we are in DC.
Pretentious and old school
I definitely would return to try more dishes. The appetizers and sides are excellent!
The salmon is outstanding. I love the sauce and it is a generous portion. The popovers are what makes the restaurant so special.
