A word from BLT Steak - Ritz-Carlton San Juan
BLT Steak's design integrates select traditional elements of the French "Bistro" and an American "Steakhouse." A lighter environment has been created that is enhanced by the richness of Macassar Ebony tables and matching suede. A 25-foot bar greets diners with an excellent array of libations for pre- or post- dining pleasure.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Great food, ambiance, Excelent service....loved it!!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "This was the 5th time I've been to this BLT and I never leave disappointed. I loved the popovers and as usual, the bone-in ribeye. The steak was cooked to perfection and I left barely able to move. This was the best meal I had during my stay in San Juan and the waitstaff keep giving me reasons to come back."

  • "We made a last minute reservation and discovered their dinner specials between 6-7 pm. The meal was delicious with both of our proteins prepared perfectly. The restaurant also recognized that it was our 20th anniversary and surprised us with an additional dessert. If we are back in San Juan we will certainly return!"

  • "Food, service and atmosphere was amazing. There was an issue with one of our glasses not being so clean. The glass was replaced immediately. The manager came over to apologize and were were taken good care of."

  • "I ate here with my fella on the last night of a week long vacation and I have to say, it was nothing short of spectacular. We decided to go all out, no expense spared and every bite was worth every penny. To start we enjoyed the fresh lump crab salad, tuna tartar and scallops. The fresh crab meat was possibly the freshest crab I've ever had we the portion was very large. For dinner we had the filet, which was very good but I have to say the 16oz coffee rubbed delmonico special was the best steak I have ever had. It was so tasty and full of flavor. But the real bonus was the bone marrow on the side that was a little delicious dollop of heaven on each bite."

  • "POPOVERS! Need I say more? I mean it's like having oral ecstasy. The tuna tartar was muy excellente as well. The filet mignon was OK as were the hens of wood ... Ive had better. Service was nice. Excellent House Red. Quiet Setting. Will try Meat Market next time I am in town. The hotel is beautiful! "

  • "This was our 3rd visit to BLT in San Juan and each time is better than the last. The food from start to finish was excellent, nothing short of our expectations. Service was equally as great and made our dining experience fun by giving us personal recommendations from the menu. He steered some towards a wine, others for a side dish or dessert and each time was right on the money. We will be back next year!"

  • "The coconut bread pudding is possibly the best dessert on the planet!! "

  • "Dined at the BLT in Atlanta, Charlotte and now San Juan and all have been fantastic."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "It was my first Mother's Day without my daughter, who is away at school, taking finals. My husband picked this restaurant because foodies told us about it. Everything is first-rate and perfect, from the smiling waiters to the incredible food. Popovers win, let me tell you. And the short ribs are better than any we have had. Coconut bread-pudding is like a souffle. All that was missing was my child. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Excellent service, the pop up pastry is wonderful. The rib eye was mediocre at best, the veal was acceptable."
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "Nice location in Isla Verde, Great food, good atmosphere, solid!"
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "Excellent the bone in strip and filet melted in your mouth. The staff was professional but not at all stuffy."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "This was one of the best all around meals I have ever had. The service was truly spectacular, our waiter even gave a us a personal hand written thank you card at the end of the meal. Being from Chicago, a truly great food city, I have eaten at a lot of amazing steak places, but this one was truly amazing and in the top three best ever. If you go to San Juan and / or stay at the Ritz you absolutely have to spend an evening eating here!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "They sat us by the bar area. One waitress with no help. Dishes were left on the table foe a long time. I think they forgot the tequila in my margarita. The bread took forever to come out. The steaks did not come out hot. The waitress forgot the sauce we ordered and then she said oh I will bring it right out and never did. Way over priced for the quality for cold food and lack of service"

  • "Ruth Chris is usually our choice but decided to visit BLT cause we could walk. Wine list missing 4 pages (the reds I would add,) Our standing steakhouse choice is a porterhouse for 2 so what we ordered. Were told shortly after that they ran out of porterhouse. Ran out? So went NY strip and ribeye. Both were served warm, not hot and halfway through were cold. Strip was ok, ribeye was tough. Huge disappointment at theses prices. Highlight of dining was the sommelier who helped us choose a wine from Spain- his story telling around each winemaker and what set them apart was superb and so was the choice of wine. Meat was a bust, the bread they serve we give 5 stars to. My wife who is gluten free even polished off one of their signature popovers."

  • "The service was slow, steak okay, would not go back! Very disappointed!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Everything had a burnt coating on it... this overwhelmed the flavor of the food. Also, they will nickle and dime you for everything you ask for. Egg on your burger? $6 extra... refill on your pepsi? $4. Why Pepsi? Because they won't serve coke! This place is not worth a tenth of the price paid."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Excellent food, service and decor. They went out of their way to accommodate us. We had two young male servers who were excellent. I highly recommend this place :)"

  • "Second visit to BLT in San Juan and it was great. Gruyere popovers are awesome and the lamp chops and other entress and sides were delicious."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Great restaurant located in the Ritz Carlton in San Juan. The food was spectacular. Best meal we had all vacation Including the surprises like the luscious popovers and little chocolate treats we were offered when we said no dessert. If you love steak. GO! Though my husband had the shrimp and said it was spectacular too."
    Dined on 1/27/2014
  • "The evening was perfect! The staff was very friendly and helpful (maybe a bit too pushy in the order-taking); the steak and the mac and cheese were excellent, the wine list was superb (although they had run out of our initial selection). Overall, it was just great!"
    Dined on 1/14/2014
  • "While a steak house my fish was awesome . I loved that it was in our hotel in Puerto Rico and we will be going back."
    Dined on 1/9/2014
  • "This was a feast meal and great service but be prepared to spend more than $100 per person before adding any alcohol."
    Dined on 1/6/2014
  • "In the past I found found BLT to be an elegant restaurant where the well-executed food merited the high prices for a special dinner. The last visit was a disappointment. The television at the bar and casually dressed clientele seemed a bit incongruous with the price range. It might work better to separate the bar/cafe part of the restaurant from the dining room- creating two different atmospheres that might please diners more."
    Dined on 1/5/2014
  • "Looked forward to a romantic dinner on our first night in San Juan. Called ahead to move up reservation but told no option exist yet when we showed up early there was plenty of open tables. Bar area was showing football game and the noise level made the experience less than desirable as any when cheering like they were at a sports bar. Unfortunately this ruined the experience we were looking for. Food was fine and the service was good but we just wanted to leave because of the atmosphere so we skipped dinner."
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "Amazing popovers that came with the recipe so you can try at home. Steaks were excellent (with the exception of the hanger steak-spend the extra money for the filet or ribeye) Certainly feel spoiled with all the little extras, including the bon bons at the end of the meal. Be prepared to pay for the experience."

  • "Wanted to treat my Dad to a Peter Luger like experience and BLT did not disappoint."

  • "Went to celebrate my mother's birthday. The staff was incredibly attentive. But overall it wasn't an experience that left a memorable mark."
    Dined on 11/18/2013
  • "They didnt have orignal A1 steak sauce. The sauces overall was not my favorite. My steak was really tough and i order it medium well and my other guest wasnt please with there food. The bread was great!"
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "Everything was done to perfection. They start you with hot popover bread and some duck pate. Then our appetizers came over. The best crabcake and huge shrimp. Ribeye was very tender and lobster tail done to perfection. Its a little pricey but if thats not a concern of yours, you wont regret coming here."
    Dined on 11/1/2013
  • "We stayed at Ritz for my wife's birthday and ate at BLT our first night. The service was outstanding. Incredibly attentive and the hotel must have told the restaurant that it was my wife's birthday as they had champagne poured for us when we sat. Oysters were fresh, and the NY strip "Pittsburgh" style was great. It's an expensive meal, but very good and a great option in the Isla Verde area."

  • "I'd go back in a heartbeat. Fantastic steaks, great sides and desserts. The popovers are simply amazing. My wife is a vegetarian and we went back for a second time while on vacation."
    Dined on 10/23/2013
  • "They have great food. We always eat here when we are here for vacation. The only problem is the noise level is too much."
