All that and more... – Trying to maximize our time in New York we went based on one personal recommendation and all the reviews we read on this site. It was a great experience. Very New York. Food, Service, crowd, wait-time, CheeseBoard and ambiance were all excellent. Thank you to those before us who gave such good feedback and helped our decision.
A great NYC experience – I went with 3 other people on a Thursday night about 8:30 and the place was absolutely jam-packed. We were a little early for our reservations so i thought we'd have to fight for some room at the bar(impossible). But to my pleasant surprise, after less then a couple minutes we were promptly seated in the dining room. The food and wine were great, and surprisingly the onion rings were memorable. You wouldn't think that at a top steakhouse that onion rings would standout, but they were great. The filet was cooked perfectly, and the Swordfish was also a good choice. The waitress was a little slow at times, but considering how busy it was I wasn't completely shocked. Overall it was a great experience for an out of towner and will be a place that i'll want to go back to again.
bring the date, take the window seat, take it all in – the girlfriend and i have had many a drink at the long yet narrowly spaced bar. bartenders attentive and efficient. and i have had many outstanding meals with business associates. yet one meal in particular with the gf stands out..there is a cozy inviting small window seat area that you can hopefully enjoy the company of stangers.if you dont travel en posse...its small enough that you will either take command of the couches or make friends..we made friends..the popovers( the undeniable uniquely delicious version of everyother resaurants bread) are dangerous...we decided to share a very well tossed caeser-not a huge fan of over creamed dressin, followed by the perfectly cold dry crisp shrimp the size of an elbow..then the gluttony began..hands down best 3+lb steamed lobster ever served outside of gorges bank..we all know the smaller ones are the sweetest yet the way my girlfiend went "daryl hannah" on it ..was clearly the sign of perfection...bring the girl, drink, meet new friends..careful there are alot of suits as well....
Steakhouse Supreme! – In general, steakhouses to me are "cookie-cutter" throughout all of Manhattan. This one stands out as the exception, except that it can be extraordinarily loud which is pretty commonplace. The ambience is warm, the food just delicious, and the service was excellent. One other noteable was the significant representation of young women in the restaurant, many eating in groups of 4+, without the company of men. This speaks volumes, I believe.
Good Stuff! – went to BLT steak last night in a group of 4. everything was great from the service to the decor and of course the food. Our waiter was very attentive and answered our questions with no problems. we started off with the complimentary pop-overs, which i think i could eat everyday for breakfast lunch and dinner. i considered askign for more but i knew that we were about to gorge ourselves. apps: the oysters were great, the scallop special was amazing, and the tuna tartar was also really good.
then the steak....i ordered the ny strip which was perfectly charred and peppery on the outside and moist and tender on the inside. 2 of my friends had the filet. one thought it was a little fatty which shouldn't happen with filet, but it tasted really good anyway. my other friend had the rib eye, the biggest steak on the menu, which was also perfect. i would rate these steaks up there with any other great steak that i've had.
sides: we had the asparagus, potatoes gratin and gnochi, which were all great too.
desert: the bread pudding and sundae just put us over the top.
all in all, this was a great meal and i would highly reccomend this place.
Great Birthday Dinner! – My wife took me here on a Saturday in December for my birthday as I am a huge steak fan and it was perfect. Everything from the bartenders for an apertif to the desert was done just right. The porterhouse for 2 was cooked to the perfect temperature and the bevy of servers we had were right on point. Highly recommend this place for drinks, dinner, and special occasions. I have been to almost every high class steak restaurant in Manhattan and this one goes right up there with the best.
Worth the Expense – My wife and I visited BLT for lunch this past week and it was a great experience. The staff was polite and the service was excellent. The meal started with popovers that were great! A petite filet for the wife and tuna for myself and they were both very good. We had an order of onion rings that looked like a stack of Krispy Kreme's. The sides are big, so you can certainly share. Prices are on the high side, but knowing that going in, I felt, it was worth it. Make a reservation, as we got there at noon and it was full by 12:30.
A great night out with friends – We made reservations over a week prior and there were only 2 times available, but once we showed up we were seated right away. The service was excellent, attentive, but not standing over you. The starters and appetizers were very good, there were four of us for dinner, my husband and I shared the porterhouse for 2. We would not recommend it if you like your steak medium-rare, the filet side of the steak was cooked perfectly, but the strip side was over cooked. Of course with the size of the steak we had the fear that some of it may be tough which it was. Our friends ordered the rib eye and filet and both gave rave reviews. And the desserts were also very good. I would most definitely come back again on my next trip to NY.
Great Place! – I was very impressed. Great food and service for the money. The bead is to die for as well as the steaks. I would highly recommend it.
consistent – Went back to BLT again recently and I am always reminded how much I enjoy the experience of perfectly prepared steaks and great service. This meal will not come cheap, but nothing good ever really does. The wine list is deep and our server was educated on the different varieties available to us...always good.
