the food, the place and the staff all was wonderful.

we went 2 night in a row, the manger came to greet us. It was very nice feeling being in a restaurant only
twice that the manager paid attention to see us.

Happened across this place while searching for options after grabbing drinks at a nearby whisky and cigar bar, and this place is legit. From the duck fat pate, to the incredible Popovers brought to the table before we even ordered our meal, this place served up the best meal I ate in the 6 nights I spent in NYC this past week. The Braised Short Ribs were delicious, perfectly seasoned and prepared, leaving me no choice to clean the plate. The truffles potatoes could be a little firmer however they were still great. Of course everything is more expensive when it comes to eating out in NYC, yet this meal was worth it more than other meals I paid similarly or slightly more for in downtown or midtown. I’ve already recommended BLT Prime to about three dozen co-workers and some friends back in Austin if they make their way to NYC anytime soon. Great job Team BLT Prime!

They brought the wrong steak & when they delivered the right one, it was too rare & not medium as ordered. Definitely ruined the experience. They did bring another glass of wine & dessert on them, which was nice.

BLT stiil operating at a PRIME level- very pleasant atmosphere with attentive professional service and expected very high quality food. The Popovers themselves are worth going there!

Not cheap but not outrageous either for what you get!

We will definitely be back- popover withdrawal may set in if we do not.

The server did not hear our order for an appetizer.
The cowboy steak was recommended to be cooked medium and it was very tough and not juicy. Filet was great though.
Overall fine, everyone was nice.

Blt Prime has been our go to steak restaurant before they even moved uptown . The food is always excellent . I do miss the cast iron plates the steak was served on & the casual/ business casual crowd from Park Place . Upper East Siders ? Meh.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. We came on Valentine’s Day last year and we were excited that the new location opened up. We were seated upstairs and we were next to the glass wall and we were overlooking the first floor. It was a great view and such a cozy romantic ambiance. The service and food exceeded my expectations and I was very impressed. I think our waitress made the night for us. She was super friendly and knowledgeable on the menu selections. In the end they surprised my boyfriend a dessert for his birthday. I was surprised as well as I didn’t see this coming! This restaurant is perfect for any date or occasion.

Disappointing steak. Had the tomahawk to share. Sides were excellent (had the corn and mushrooms). As was the bread and wedge salad. The steak cooked medium rare may not have been the best choice? At one point I asked my friend if her knife was dull too. it was very chewy. I went here once when they first opened and it was amazing. This time was meh because of the steak. My advice, stick with a fillet or something else. otherwise it's a great place.

BLT Prime is one of our favorite, go-to steakhouses in New York and in Las Vegas. On this occasion, we each had the 10 oz Skirt Steak, which was very tasty and cooked perfectly. Our son ordered the fries, which were out of this world (some of the best I've had), but the sauteed spinach was under-cooked and a little too chewy, which is the only reason they don't get an "outstanding" grade for the food. The waiter forgot our oysters, and when we reminded him, he brought them, and did not charge us, which was unnecessary, but a very nice touch that we won't forget. Drinks were tasty and generous, and the meal was great overall. Highly reccommeded and almost perfect.

We were greeted on time for our reservation and they accommodated us at a booth which we requested. Place is beautiful ,bar very welcoming. Service was impeccable and all dishes leading up to entrees were very good. The waitress spaced the courses well so we never felt rushed. Our only complaint was the main center plate items. I had the Branzini. While it was fresh it was a very small portion accompanied by a few limp veggies. My husband had the N.Y. strip one of the pricier ones and it came under cooked and a bit tough. I insisted he return but opted not to. My kids had the filet and it was delicious.and were very satisfied . Side dishes such as truffle mash and fries were very good.
All in all we enjoyed but for the prices of the steak not sure my husband will want to return . Service was excellent.

We came for our anniversary the other night and they made sure our evening was extra special and memorable. Steaks cooked to perfection, honest opinions about the food and wine menu coupled with their personal favorites and suggestions. We were never left wanting! Champagne and dessert to boot, compliments of the house...I know we will be back for our next special occasion! The cozy and intimate ambience was especially warm and welcoming given the cold winter weather!

The meal was very good, we had the branzino and the lobster roll with the side of brussel sprouts and bacon which were very tasty. The bread is a hallmark of the place. Service was ok, a little pushy in the dessert options which is not a surprise. Ambiance was good and noise level was acceptable for your typical NYC restaurant on a friday night. Cuts are a bit overpriced but, again, it is New York City where everything pretty much is. Overall a good experience if you are willing to spend a little more that night.

The steak ordered medium rare was prepared medium well, the pancetta in the lobster salad was over cooked to a dark brown, the baked potato (while hot) was hard in the center and the salads were watery. The server did not come back to check on us promptly so we chose not to have the steak prepared again. We had to request to see our server and it took more than five minutes for her to come to our table after our request. There is really nothing I can say was good and I have had good experiences here before. This was so bad, we will not be back.

I was a big fan of the food at BLT on 57th. Even though the menu is basically the same, the quality is not. The food came overcooked and the sauce used on the Dover sole was different and no where near as good. I was disappointed.

Disappointing. 3notches down from the original BLT Prime Downtown. Uninspiring staff, mediocre sides and starters,Steaks however are still of good quality but nothing any solid steak house in NYC can’t deliver equally.
