I was invited to a dinner given by major pharmaceutical company..The subject was schizophenia and a new way of administering meds. The dinner was upstairs in the private room.There were 24 people seated around a magnificent table with opulent chairs...Dinner was superb from start to finish. The service was impeccable. Dinner was served family style. The pop overs were reminescent of years ago. Salads were superb. The jumbo shrimp were awesome..Hanger steak was a little too salty but otherwise delicious; tuna was perfect..the side dishes were also teriffic. Dessert was outstanding....A definite hit.

The food was on a par with other high end steak houses but the service was spotty and the room was noisy with not enough character. At this price point there are better choices.

We ordered the roasted beet appetizer, shared the NY strip, onion rings, hen of the woods mushroom, gnocchi with parm. All were delicious. The complimentary pop overs are amazing. Really, one of the best breads I've ever had. I could have eaten the bread all night and been happy. The beet and goat cheese appetizer was yummy, a great pairing. The steak tasted great by itself - so juicy and tender. We barely used the sauce at all the steak was so good. The onion rings were fried and salted to perfection, mushrooms were a treat and my least favorite was the gnocchi, but probably because I was so full. They topped it off with complimentary cheesecake for the birthday boy and homemade cookies. We were even able to take home our unfinished bottle of wine. The one thing I didn't like about the service is that I don't know if there were any specials. I heard they serve steak tartare, but didn't see it on the menu and it wasn't offered. I wonder now if I should have asked.

The sauces are what make the steaks here. My favorite was the warm blue cheese sauce, but I also liked their own traditional steak sauce. It's atmosphere is simple. the service is great. I feel like it's more of a co-ed steak house than others, meaning it's not just a room full of men... definitely would be back.

With all of the steak houses in NYC , BLT is certainly one to miss. Food was overpriced and the service was lacking. Stick the The Palm or Sparks if you are looking for a real steak.

I went ro BLT last month. Although it was only for lunch, my expectations were high and my appetite big. I had the hangar steak and found it just ok. I ate at the bar, and the service was at the same level as the steak--until I got home when it dropped to less than good. I had asked that the leftover sauce be poured on the meat and boxed up for that night's dinner (while I watched the Yanks lose--sigh). To my disappointment, all I found was my left over steak--unsauced. Dry dinner. In the final analysis, BLT is ok, but, in my experience, not to the level of the competition.
