“Good choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The food here is excellent and bountiful in both portion size and variety.

The location is good for east midtown.

The bar is a little tight and the staff who do seat assignments are a little hard to deal with.

The bread and steak are especially good.

I would go back.

Its a little on the expensive side.

“Delicious, but go hungry!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Great restaurant in a good location (57th b/w Lexinton & Park). The steak portions are huge so unless you have a healthy appetite, I recommend splitting. The filet was cooked perfectly. The best thing, though, has to be the popovers. I'm not ordinarily a bread fan, but they were to die for. The service was excellent. We were promptly seated and catered to by the excellent wait staff. Highly recommend!

“Not a High End Steakhouse”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Puzzled by the rave reviews. This place was just OK. Filet was just OK. All the food including sides and steak were slightly overcooked. Atmosphere not great traditional steak house. Small and cramped. Service was just OK. Patrons dressed down. Very average experience overall.

“wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Me and my boyfriend went to blt steak while in nyc for a special evening and that’s what we got.

From the moment we walked in the staff could not do enough for us, the waiter spent time telling us about the food and wine and his recommendations.

The food was stunning from the cheesy giant Yorkshire pudding and the complimentary parfait to the perfectly cooked filet and giant onion rings with a perfectly matched bottled of red wine.

The best steak we have ever eaten and up there with the best restaurants we have visited,
a truly perfect evening!

I would recommend blt as a great place for a special meal with fantastic food, wine and cocktails.

“Happy Returns”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

My wife and I recently revisited BLT this past January. We have been to BLT many times and always enjoy an excellent dining experience. During a prior visit before the holidays we were a bit disappointed that we had an inordinate wait for a table and the service was mediocre. I usually give and restaurant a second chance and in this case I'm glad I did. I am happy to report that BLT is still a cut above the other steakhouse " chains" in NYC. The food was outstanding and service was impeccable. The manager Albert made it a point to visit our table to assure the everything went smoothly . My faith has been restored and we will continue to visit BLT in the future.
