BLT Prime by David Burke
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.
I had my birthday dinner at BLT prime Sunday night. I will say that the food and drinks were good, we started off with oysters and both had steak which was cooked well. I also received a complimentary dessert which was appreciated. However the ambience was very disappointing. I had to ask a man at the table next to me to get off his cell phone. Then the ladies across from us started FaceTiming all their friends. It felt like being at Denny’s. Also, our waitress seemed to be operating off of a script and the service just felt very stiff and awkward. With so many good places in DC we will not be coming back here.
We had a great experience for dinner with Billy as our waiter on a Tuesday night. Came back on Saturday for brunch and was not as pleased. Bummed.
Great place for a special occasion
They are making steaks great again!!!!
Setting is beautiful and watching political celebrities was fun. Service was good. Filet mignon was terrible. It’s indicated on the menu that it’s not prime beef - I had no idea this meant it would be really awful quality.
Overall experience was quite nice. The food was spotty- bacon was delicious but one of my son’s pancakes was raw in the middle.
The best attention to detail, first place ever to be greeted with Champagne while they get your table ready, great ambiance and awesome steaks and Trump wine🎊.....highly recommend 5 stars in my opinion
Had a great evening with my daughter for her 23rd birthday.
Went to BLT for a birthday celebration. The food was tasty especially her scallops. I ordered steak and eggs were very good except for the fact the eggs were barely warm. The sequence of the meal was "jerky" We ordered drinks and they arrived right away along with the pastry basket. Then it took awhile for the entrees. Hers came first and eventually mine. We ordered another drink and hers came and I had to wait for mine. They brought her a special dessert but I had to wait several minutes for my dessert. In fact she inquired when mine was coming since she didn't want to start hers before me. Our waiter was very good and he tried to explain why the food came out the way it did. We will probably go back since she really enjoys the food and the view from the upper deck.
Was exactly what you’d expect for brunch at Trump Hotel. It was amazing and all around a great experience.
Definitely a little pricey so be prepared for that.
We were 4. And we placed at a round table for 6 in the corner (I knew then something was not going to be good) - the service from the start was poor. The waiter was non communicating- The pop overs never were coming. They kept telling us soon. Drink replenishing was very slow - we had to go get the servers - I had to get up and go talk to a manager Gracie - who did jump in and did her best to make it right. A free round of drinks. Shrimp app and a dessert. So it finished on a positive note. But overall for the prices and reputation they must be better.
Omg the food and service on point tonight - shout out to waiter Billy and Sommelier Gracie - fabulous !!
Date night. Food was superior. Ambiance was just right.
Excellent food and service! We will definitely go back.
Took way over an hour for my food....after being told it was coming right out by my server and a manager it still took 15mins more for the food. I saw another table that were having the same experience yet their waiter and management provided them with lots of attention/apologies and comped items. Finally after the food came out and I was about to leave a manager came back to me and comped my meal. I would NEVER go back to this restaurant. Not even sure now if I am interested in trying the other location either.
Went for Valentine’s Day. We were told the food would be slow due to the volume—it was actually reasonably quick and quite delicious. The service, on the other hand, was abysmal. Our waiter spent 80% of his time at one table having a conversation and neglected our table almost completely (as well as the rest in his section). We ordered a bottle of champagne that took nearly 45 minutes to get and then could not track anyone down to refill our glasses (the bottle was stored away from the table or we would have just refilled ourselves). I honestly got far better service from a recent trip to Applebee’s. Super cool atmosphere and good food, but the whole experience was overshadowed and totally ruined by the terrible service. I would not recommend this place at all.
Valentine’s day at BLT Prime was amazing. It started with a wonderful popover and ended with a red rose! It was a lovely evenness with my loved one.
Top to bottom 5 stars!!!! Ambiance, service, food, drinks, all of it ... highly recommend!!
Everyone in the Trump hotel was warm, accommodating and genuinely interested in our enjoyment and experience! Never experienced that before in a hotel or restaurant. The BLT restaurant has some amazing employees like Gracie, the Sommelier, Billy our wait staff and Hamza. Keep doing what you are doing!!!!
We had a wonderful time at BLT. The staff was terrific and very personable. We loved our sommelier Gracie, who was beautiful and full of southern charm.
The food was fantastic as usual!
