Located near the start of Waikiki, a few blocks away from the famed Waikiki Beach, and home inside the Luxurious Trump Hotel, BLT Steak is quite possibly the best steak dinner experience we have had in Waikiki.
Even if you aren’t a lover of steaks, you can be assured you will be taken care of like a guest of the Trump Hotel: with respect, patience, and wonderful hospitality. Although we aren’t regular eaters of juicy steaks, BLT Steakhouse knocks it out of the ballpark in flavorful packed dishes and customer service.
We like to think that we aren’t hard to please but we are big believers in a few things that make a restaurant great: 1) water always filled, 2) regular check-up with a waiter/waitress, 3) real candle flames. Anything after these points are a bonus and oh, did we receive that:
Recommendations from the best sommelier, Rick, helpful pointers by not ONE but THREE different waiters, a constantly cleared table, and new cutlery for the main entree are all signs of lavish accommodation.
Hours: Sunday-Thursday 5pm-10pm / Friday & Saturday 5pm-11pm
Parking: Complimentary valet at Trump hotel for 4 hours with validation.
Tip: 50% off for Veterans and active duty military on Veterans Day
We started the night off with a Rose, a BLT signature cocktails such as The Duke, and a BLT Classic Twist such as the Raspberry Mojito. The cocktails were perfect as it was not too sweet and quite strong. We’ll be back for some drinks to try out more of the drinks! Check out the drink menu, here.
Rose $15 Le Caprice de Clementine, France 2016
The Duke $16 – Woodford Reserve, Monkey Shoulder Scotch, Aperol, Orange Juice, Lemon Juice
Raspberry Mojito $16 – Bacardi Silver Rum, Raspberry, Mint Fresh Lime Juice, Sugar Syrup
Our food came out right away! The service was absolutely quick. We noticed other groups as well with their food coming out quick. We love that we can see the chefs prepping hard in the kitchen. While the food came out at a timely manner, the presentation and flavor were perfect.
For appetizers, we ordered Tuna Tartare and Crab Cake. Along with a few complimentary bites from the chef. Also, every table gets a complimentary BLT cheese pop-over which is a light and hollow roll.
The delicious BLT cheese pop-over comes with unsalted butter and salt.
Tune Tartare with avocado, soy-lime dressing. $22
Crab Cake with lemon, radish salad. $23
While we were eating our appetizers, we then ordered our main courses such as the 12 oz. Filet and Seared Kampachi. Along with a few side dishes such as onion rings, grilled asparagus, and black truffled mashed. Check out the dinner menu, here.
Filet 12 oz. with sauces for your choice. $62 – Pair this with the black truffled mashed, it’s delicious!
Seared Kampachi with soy-caper brown butter. $36
Onion Rings, Grilled Asparagus, and Black Truffled Mashed for the sides.
Definitely, save some room for dessert because it topped off the night for us! We had the Peanut Butter Chocolate Mousse, Vanilla Bean Brûlée Cheesecake, and Crêpe Soufflé. Check out the dessert menu, here.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Mousse Banana Ice Cream $12
Vanilla Bean Brûlée Cheesecake Roasted Strawberry Ice Cream $12 – My favorite dessert!
Crêpe Soufflé Liliko’i Sauce $12 – Reid’s favorite dessert!
Dessert Wine – Thank you BLT Waikiki for this nice dessert pairing!
To fully end our date night, we each had a cup of mint herbal tea $6
Thinking back, we haven’t had a romantic date night as delightful as we had at BLT Steakhouse Waikiki. To be honest, it is located in a luxury hotel in Waikiki which means the prices are exorbitant but you are paying not only for great tasting food, you’re also being treated like you deserve, a revered guest! Many steakhouses should have BLT as the new standard. We highly recommend experiencing here if you are in Waikiki and looking for a fancy date night!
