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!

The venue was beautiful. Cocktails in the lobby before dinner. Our server Jamie was incredible, great service and a fun real person. Great food (try the bacon). And fun to see famous people.

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!

Just a wonderful overall meal to celebrate my husband's birthday. The table overlooked the hotel which is so pretty. Our service was impeccable! I had the scallops and they were cooked perfectly. My husband had steak and again, cooked to his perfection (which isn't easy!) This is our 3rd or 4th time eating here and we will be back!

High-class service, great food! The atmosphere was very nice but would be premier if reservations and a dress code were required. The current dress ranged from t-shirt & jeans to suit & tie. While this doesn’t affect overall enjoyment of the meal, there is something to be said for higher, quality standards.
