A word from BLT Steak at Camelback Inn, A JW Marriott Resort
BLT's Modern American Steakhouse concept is beautifully executed within Camelback’s Paradise Valley setting.

A long dark wood bar, reclaimed mesquite wood floors and striking views of Camelback Mountain afford guests a memorable setting for BLT’s signature blend of American flair and French classicism. Contemporary Southwestern styling plays host to cosmopolitan steakhouse fare at BLT Steak. Unwind in the BLT bar, enjoy an intimate indoor setting, or dine in the outdoor courtyard enveloped in Scottsdale’s natural allure, where the views of Camelback Mountain at sunset are spectacular.

No matter where your table, masterful combination of prime beef – Certified Black Angus and Wagyu – and rich sauces is superb. Fresh seafood, lamb, chicken and veal round out the menu. Original salads and appetizers are delectable beginnings to your sumptuous meal, while signature popovers and savory side dishes are the perfect accompaniment to your meal.

    Hadn't been to Scottsdale for several years and our son picked BLT. Beautiful setting with wonderful food. My wife especially enjoyed her lobster starter. My Bronzino was tasty but bit over cooked. Petite filets were nicely cooked and tasty. Blueberry cobbler was a hit. Waiter started strong but then was absent for most of the meal. Salad came out and no salt/pepper on table-no fresh ground offered so finally got up and found my own grinder. Saw very little of him throughout our meal. Junior server was most friendly and helpful though but clearly our waiter was not too interested in serving our table. Restaurant was not very busy so didn't appear to us that he was challenged handling his tables. Perhaps just having an "off night".

    My wife and I ate outside, viewing the mountains and the moon. The service was excellent - attentive but not intrusive. The pate (chopped liver) and popover are a BLT trademark and we really looked forward to them - we were not disappointed. My steak was cooked exactly as I wanted it and was tasty and wonderful. The creamy spinach was also excellent. My wife had fish and it too was wonderful - properly prepared and beautifully served. Fish isn't always easy to find in the desert, but BLT did well. We had a great evening and will return to BLT.

    We are regulars diners in the bar area, but don't dine in the restaurant proper too often. We decided to change that up because it was my wife's birthday and we had friends joining us. The food was excellent as usual, but the service was really poor. Honestly, I've had better service in fast food restaurants. I wish we could have had any of the servers in the bar area instead, who are all top notch. It really put a damper on an otherwise great evening.

The wait staff was experienced, professionally friendly and very attentive. The food was delicious and prepared exactly as ordered. We can't wait for another visit.

    Food was good. Service was friendly but very rushed. Felt like we didnt have time to enjoy each course. I had specified we were dining there for my husband's birthday in the "special requests" section but there was no mention of it . I was a little disappointed they didn't do anything for him or at least say "Happy Birthday". It definitely was not as special as i had hoped it would be. I will stick with Masto's and Ruth's Chris for amazing steak dinners in the future.

    Recommend the sea bass. Liver pate was superb. Steak was just a bit over "OK" - needed a bit more seasoning. Service was great, waitress was pleasant and enjoyed some chatting between courses. A bit pricey, but, certainly worth it. My wife and I went for our anniversary and were very pleased. The place was a bit loud, kinda like eating in a hotel lobby.

    My Wife & I visited this restaurant while staying in Paradise Valley as we had visited their Miami venue earlier in the year. Good food, good service & a great venue at the Marriott Camelback. We enjoyed a Porterhouse steak to share which was superb, cooked perfectly. The service was also very impressive, attentive & professional. Whilst this is quiet a large restaurant it still felt intimate.

    The Camelback Inn is beautiful and a great resort for our spa getaway. We heard good things about the BLT Steakhouse on property so we thought we would go there. Not a good choice! The server seemed annoyed we were there. The liver pate that was served as an appetizer was offensive and the potato au gratin that we ordered with our steak was drowned in oil and garlic. It was just not good. Very disappointing. We will not go back.

    We've celebrated several anniversaries and birthdays at BLT over the past couple of years. Unfortunately, it seemed that after we didn't order the $110 bottle of wine, the service became just average - nothing special like we've experience on our previous visits. For November, we'll return to our other gem, Elements, at The Sanctuary.

    Food was great...although my steak was overdone and they took it back and promptly provided me another one. It ended up being one of the best steaks Ive had. They ended up comping us a dessert which was nice. Waiter was great - manager was not. He was more interested in socializing and seemed very distracted. Overall, good experience for our 15th anniversary.

    Have gone to the Camelback Inn over the years for special occasions so thought we'd try the steak house to celebrate a new job. Service was very attentive. The house speciality popovers were a treat. Started with the shrimp cocktail. 4 XL shrimp. More like mini-lobsters. Wife had the tuna appetizer and raved about it. Steaks (filet) were delicious. Slightly under cooked but not you don't (at least I don't) ever want to overcook a prime steak. Melted in your mouth. Sides were average (au gratin potatoes, carrots). Everything is served on Staub cast iron cookware so it stays hot throughout the meal. Dessert was peanut butter mouse with banana ice cream, but the real treat was the warm chocolate petifores. Had to ask for more!

    WE have always gone to BLT for special occasions, such as birthday and anniversary dinners. WE rave about this place to all of our friends. We were extremely disappointed with the food and service. I do not know what has happened to this place. I do know if I am going to take my family out for a special dinner and pay $475, then it should be an amazing time. I don't think we will be going back.

    I took my 9-years old niece here last year and she remembered how good the food was, so I booked it again during a recent family vacation at the resort. I brought my now 10-years old niece and 6-years old nephew as well and the food was just as delicious this time around. I wish I took a picture of my nephew's face when he bit into the warm, buttered popover as he was just in heaven. We ordered the bone-in rib-eye which is served with the bone marrow, whole roasted garlic and herbs, as well as the grilled seabass, and they were just right. Dessert was brown butter, banana, and ginger flavored ice cream, which capped off a satisfying meal. Lastly, the wine list was well rounded and we even found the Chapoutier that is hard to find.

    We have been to The BLT Restaurant many times, and enjoyed it. Our server, Chris, is very knowledgable about the menu and is always a pleasure to have as our server. The menu has not changed, which we found different, as many restaurants make changes in the summertime, but we have found the menu to be somewhat the same. We had been at the Camelback Inn as part of a promotion which was too good to pass up and thought we would use some of our resort credit on BLT. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and the resort to anyone who enjoys being treated special.

    I'm usually cautious about 'hotel' restaurants, even those with well renowned chefs. You can throw caution to the wind at BLT Steak. A perfect blend of the classic and inventive, each dish we had was captivating, stimulating and satisfying. The passion for creating an inspiring dining experience abounds at BLT Steak... head up the hill and enjoy a perfect evening.

    Great steak house, High quality classic steak cuts broiled to perfection. The best service we've encountered in a Phoenix restaurant. The restaurant had a relaxed feel like a comfortable dining room in a home with a great view. We definitely would return. The bone in rib eye was amazing and the sides while small in portion were more than filling. The menu offered fish and fowl but this, first and foremost, is a steak house best to stick with the specialty. Service was well-timed, friendly & informative. The wine list was pricey but exceptional in quality. We will suggest to friends and return without question.

    Glad we found this restaurant during restaurant week. Took the whole family, including grandma, teenager and 8 year old. 8 year old was bored and ate late at the pool so was not hungry. Food was amazing. We had salmon and prime flat iron steak, both delicious. Tater tots and Popovers were a real treat. The peanut butter dessert was amazing. Definitely will go back. The patio is great beautiful view of camelback mountain, great place for coffee after dinner.

    We brought our daughter and her family during restaurant week and we all loved every minute and every bite of our dinners. Our server, Matt, did a great job. Our family included a well-traveled five-year-old, who enjoyed his meal as much as we did. Instead of ordering off the kids' menu from next door we shared our dinners with him because his tastes are sophisticated, too. He loved the salmon, and at Matt's suggestion, we ordered the large bone-in rib-eye so there would be enough to share with him. The family style sides were all delicious and so easy to share as well. This was the second time we've visited for restaurant week, and we come as well for great dining anytime. The popovers are addictive and the pate phenomenal!

    This dining establishment prides themselves on fine dining but lacks in fine service. First of all we asked the server if we could add something to a side dish and his response was "we have a large wedding party and our food is already prepped and the chef doesn't want to substitute anything but I will ask". He never came back with an answer and basically throughout the dinner wasn't present. When someone came to bus the table they asked how everything was and I said "food was great but service was terrible". They sent manager over and we told him what happened and he said ok and went and got our check..not offered dessert menu or dessert drinks...who is the customer??
