“Poor imitation of ny restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

I have eaten in NY BLT and in hong kong. New york was great. Hong kong no where near as good. The steak was fine but the rest of the food was no better than any commercial restaurant at twice the price

“What a disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2011 via mobile

This is so bad. It should not carry this name. The food was not seasoned, poor quality of basic product. Combined with poor preparation.
Saw our server twice,For the order and for the check. No organisation. Dirty tabletop and no maintenance Staff grooming terrible. If you think
This is anywhere close to a NYC BLT...not the place to go to. Sorry.

“An awesome view and an excellent meal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011

I have eaten at the blt restaurant in Manhattan. It was an awe inspiring dining experience and would have to have more than 5 stars to compare to most of the reviews I have made. This is a great steakhouse, but it is not the "world class" top ten that some might be expecting. It is expensive, but not at all by New York or London standards. I have had truly mediocre steaks in London that cost more and I have had comparable quality for less (say, in Houston). But we are in Hong Kong and the occasion was dinner with friends. We got a lovely outdoor table on a beautiful evening. At 8 pm we were treated to the laser light show across the Harbor. The steaks were excellent as were the tuna, vegetables, salads and more.

We spent under 2000$ HK for four of us, or <500 HK per person.. That is like 60$ a head, all in. Now that I mention it I don't think tax and tip included that Houston would match this place easily. Does Ruth Chris or Mortons have a better steak? Maybe, maybe not. These were first rate. This is an excellent place to eat and is perfectly located to go up into the mall and have some of those JP Heven chocolates for dessert!

“Great views but poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2011

Really great views of Victoria Harbour from the outside seating area.
Chronic service - had to fetch menus, then had to get up and find someone to place our order. They were prompt with the bill though and charged us 10% for the non-existent service!
Beware also if loud piped music is not your thing.
Over-hyped....won't be going back......

“Absolutely Divine... we had to go back a second time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

We treated ourselves of a quick 5 day trip in Hong Kong in May 2011 and BLT Steak turned into an unexpected favourite place for us. The steaks were beautiful and all the accompaniments we had were delicious as well. We enjoyed the meal so much we actually went back a second time... and we're looking forward to a third when we get back to HGK!!
