a sad experience..... came expecting a fine dinner of tasty beef--their namesake they stuffed us with bread and french fries A microscope was needed to see the portion of beef served. when asked the staff, they said there was no more! Could evaluate the beef but I did not have a microscope I don't understand appeal of a restaurant that serves portions that could only be enjoyed by an ant A sorry expensive evening

Granted, in some sick way we probably deserved what follows, because we thought it'd be fun to order what was advertised a 72oz $290 "Tomahawk" steak. The table next to us shook their heads and smiled as we placed our order ... perhaps knowingly? In our defense, the steak was advertised as 72oz, so we figured, "What the heck ... expensive, but we'll each get ~16-18 oz of meat (assuming the bone weighs a lb+, which is a lot". We asked the waiter: "Will this be enough for three?" He said, "Absolutely." We were pretty excited, but then were shocked by what was served to us: Easily 50oz of BONE and likely just 20oz of meat. There were 9 sorry slices of meat on the plate for three grown men to share.

The food has the aura of mass production and of course BLT is a chain but friends recommended it. Onion rings are like frozen ones, Chateaubriand ($90 for 2) served medium rare was really tough! desert, chocolate cake was very good but overall I did not care for the place. The cheapest bottle of wine is $150 a bottle, $20 a glass. Not worth the price

So me and the wifey were celebrating our anniversary this past week. Now she was in the mood for steak and I recalled my recent trip to DC where I experienced BLT. That was a great episode for me personally, but couldn't use those exact words for the recent NY dinner. While kudos to the ladies answering the phones as our reservations got mixed up. They had us 45 minutes early. Not a problem as they were more then accommodating. I mean not even a word, all I heard was "yes not a problem, see you then". I'm big on customer service and they definetly get an A. Upon arrival we were seated at our preference (the mez). Stayed away from the loud mouths downstairs and had an intimate/personal dinner. The wait staff was on the money in giving us time to breathe, water, menu's etc...We skipped the app's and ordered 2 rib-eyes with two recommended sides. While the steaks were great, there was still something missing...A bit dry my wife had said. A numerical value would rate them with a 7.5. Moving on to the sides, this is where your taking a risk regardless which restaurant but always need assistance from the wait staff to better your odds. We had the hash browns which were very dry, not flavorfull, and not the right temp. Second side was the stuffed shrooms, again not the flavor I expected. We had explained to the staff our preference but were told you'll love them. Well we didn't. To end the meal we had the donuts. Now this was an easy pick as I had the same at my recent trip. They hit'um out the ballpark. Noting better then warm donuts with chocolate and ice cream. My wife loveddddd them. Now thats a win for all married men. Finally, I'd make another trip to BLT but not as frequent as my other fav spots.

All the food was delicious and service was amazing! Cocktails were excellent and great choice of wine. Perfect for a special occasion.

I always remeber BLT Steak to be a reliable steakhouse but maybe that was because it was under the old regime. Sorry to say but it has gone down hill. Yes, the salads will big and quite good but the rest of the starters are just good and pricey at that. For the main event this is where they really fall flat. The NY strip will just so so and I wouldn't order the fatty ribeye again. The fish was really average and surprised as it wasn't a complicated dish. Sides of cold mushrooms, stringbeans and potatoes were nothing to get excited about. Furthermore the service should have been better considering the the prices they charge. The bottom line is this....pass on this place as there are just too many other places for the same price with far better food.

My wife and I went there for a night out and our time there was spectacular. The server was the Captain of the shift so his knowledge and professionalism was greatly appreciated. We had the Filet Mignon & NY Strip Steaks and both were superb. This place is a little pricey, but after your first bite into your steak you know where your money went. If you are low on funds stay away. Dinner and drinks for 2 was about $250 after tip.
