Took a group here for a business dinner just before Christmas. The steak, sides and wine list were great, but the service was outstanding.

“Wonderful evening!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

From the moment we sat down, it was one lovely course after another. The complimentary popovers were ridiculously good. Our rib eye and sides were all amazing. I was even given a couple different taste of wines to help choose one. The service was very attentive and personable. A wonderful find in NYC!

“Good food but disappointing service and wine”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

With four days in NYC we reserved a table at BLT to get a nice steak. My girlfriend is pregnant so I was the only one drinking. I asked for two glasses of different red wine (Cab Sauv from Napa and a Supertuscan), but one of the wines was really corked. I was told they would open a new bottle, but after a few seconds they came out with a new glass. The wine was not corked, but it was not the same wine. I later ordered another glass of the same wine and asked to have a new bottle and pored at the table. This was just to make sure, and the wine was completely different from the first!
The food was good, but the medium well Filet Mignon was medium rare so had to be sent back.

Sorry, but I am a big fan of wine. I feel that a restaurant with a good by the glass selection should make sure the wines are ok. The manager told me that if they should try every wine they open to serve by the glass they would all be drunk.. Great excuse and explains the quality of service. I was also told that tasting a wine is objective and that the wine I had that was corked, might be perfect to for someone else. What???
I am sure the place is good, but we had a bad experience and was hoping for a bit more understanding from the management.

“Excellent atmosphere and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014

A party of seven of us had a very enjoyable meal here. The service was a touch on the cool side - not much in the way of smiles and small talk. This is a serious steak house and my NY strip was cooked to perfection. However the Caesar salad needed a lot more TLC. It was just a large bowl of iceberg lettuce and grated parmesan. What happened to the dressing? Desserts were interesting and the wine list is very well chosen. Everyone else in the party was equally impressed. Don't eat here if you are on a budget but if you like great steaks this is up there with (for example) Smith and Wolensky. Easy to get to by the N and R lines or the 6 line.
