BLT is totally mediocre. Our waiter was poor, acting put upon from the moment we sat down. Popovers were good, but too busy (cheese, butter and a giant salt shaker). The crab appetizer tasted like nothing, the steak tasted like grill and the fish was bland. The dessert special tasted good, but an attempt at whimsy was poorly executed. The atmosphere left much to be desired - think lots of leathery 45-year-old cleavage and silver chest hair spilling from half-buttoned shirts. There are at least a dozen restaurants in DC where one can get similar cuisine, that actually tastes good, for similar prices (or cheaper).

The menu reads better than it tastes, the seasoning is not up to par with expectations as it is over or under done but never right. The restaurant may be too busy too soon with a staff not prepared to service the crowd. The management should control the reservation book so they can control the quality of service which is far below what we expect from a fine restaurant. The presentation of the food is worth the trip so wait a while before you go.

The food was excellent. The wine was excellent. The place looks great, but is a bit loud. Everything else was a disaster. We waited an hour to be seated after arriving on time for our reservation. The restaurant was out of every steak on the menu except the filet mignon and the kobe beef. Service was far from attentive--once our food came, we were forgotten about. Dirty plates were cleared only after sitting on our table for 20 minutes. We had to ask for dessert and coffee. We witnessed a number of arguments between the manager annd upset customers. We will not be going back.
