Past its Prime

  • No, I would not go back!

2012: The wine pours are half what they used to be - for a $20 glass of wine, it should at least meet the curve in the glass. The new manager is cutting costs at the cost of cutting customers. Two glasses of wine shattered by a waitress upon our table, nothing comp'd, no apologies. This place is past its prime and going downhill rapidly...

I went to New York with my boyfriend and we just stumbled upon this place cause we hungry and lost and it was the best not planned "try something new" place ever! Everything happens for a reason right ? We were meant to have an amazing romantic time here with steak and champagne :) We fell in love and we'll never forget BLT...

Ribeye for 2, fail

My boyfriend and I ordered salmon and butternut squash soup for appetizers, ribeye for 2, leek hash brown, creamy spinach and a bottle of Cabernet. The salmon was fresh and the fois gras truffles in the soup were good. The ribeye was burnt but my boyfriend insisted it was ok. I asked the waiter if it was supposed to be burnt but he too insisted that's the way they cooked medium rare. The creamy spinach was average and the leek hash brown had a nice crunchy texture but pretty bland. Dinner came out to $300 even. I would have been happy to spend it at Luger's but I read the top steakhouses to go to on nymag and decided to try.. fail.

The best BLT restaurant

This is my favorite BLT restaurant! It has a little bit of everything! BLT Fish and Fish Shack has mainly seafood, BLT Steak has mainly steaks, etc. I am completely in love with this restaurant! Their staff is more than helpful (managers included)! I have to say that I have never had a bad experience in this restaurant. If you are looking for a great quality meal, and have never been to any of the BLT's, then I think you should definitely go to BLT Prime first. They have an amazing wine selection also. Great food, great service! A definite must. Pros:Has a little bit of everything - amazing quality meal

Chef's got a cold?

Went last night and *every* side we ordered plus my main was definitely over-salted. When I mentioned this to the waitress, she said the cooks are "generous with their seasonings". That, or they want to make you thirsty and run up a big bar tab. Perhaps it's my folly for going on a Saturday night, but there is nothing special about that place. Among the too-salty dishes were the filet, hash browns, gnocchi, tater tots and hen of the woods. The other distinctly average dishes were the spinach, ceasar salad.

I've actually been to both BLT Steak and Prime. I would have to say that Prime overall offered the better experience. The menu was nearly identical at both, same quality meal at both. The prime dining space, however, is much nicer. Steak feel claustrophobic in comparison. Since the food is amazing at both, I would say take a date uptown, but plan a large dinner party at BLT Prime.

Recently took family visiting from out-of-town to BLT Prime and everyone was impressed. Great atmosphere, food and service! Must try the spinach and asparagus! I definitely will be going back.

I brought my parents here from out of town. They're from Minnesota and it was their first time in New York City. They loved the Dry Aged Room and swooned over the pop-overs. My mom is still raving about the blue-cheese tater tots. The service was excellent and courteous and the servers were very patient and kind with my out-of-town parents. Thanks!

I have one word to describe this place...Delicious! The Steak was cooked to perfection and just melted in my mouth. I highly reccommend the mashed potatoes and Bernaise sauce! The space was beautiful, although it can get a bit noisy. The service was so overly vigilant, I couldn't even believe it! This restaurant is a must. You're in for a real treat!
