Good meat and side dishes. Portions however are very large especially the Eye Rib ordered for a teenager who could barely eat half. A bit of a waste for a USD 52 dish with no side food(meat only). Waiter should warn of the size and...More

Went here with a business partner. We sat at the bar and had crab cakes, pork belly, and Caesar salad. Perfect spot to have your fancy dinner at the bar. As everything of decent quality in NYC, you pay for it.

Fabulous popovers, tuna tartare and scrumptious steaks. Fun atmosphere. Bartender Leann is so much fun. Waiter was awesome too.

We were going to have a good steak and we received what we needed. This is not cheap restaurant but everything is worth. All appetizers and meat were just great. And their bread! It looks quite odd but tastes perfect!

Recently dined here with a group and the food and service were great. Excellent steaks and sides. BLT's popovers are a perfect way to start your meal - warm bread and butter...ding, ding, ding! They were out of the wine I ordered but suggested another...More

As a carnivore, I appreciate a good steak. At BLT Prime, you pay a premium price for the offered meat and unfortunately, the steak was my least favorite part of the evening. To begin, the restaurant is sleek and polished, with the constant humming of...More

What am I missing? I have read the reviews. I have also eaten here before. I don't begin to understand why people would rate it highly. I always found this place mediocre. On my last visit I thought it was well below that! The main...More

You could ask to sit downstairs. We did that on Valentine's Day weekend and it seemed much quieter than upstairs. There only a few tables down there.

I've been to both and prime is smaller and more intimate and steak is larger and noisier. I like both and both have similar steaks. So the food is similar just the ambiance! I hope this helps!
