Awesome for special occasion
We sat outside, perfect for our anniversary dinner. Food exceeded expectations. Service was great... For South Beach that is. Definitely more expensive than most places, but in our opinion... Well worth it. Table next to us gave the staff a hard time, he was solo, and seemed to expect a super fast experience, which is not what we were looking for. In fact, he was rather rude, which is never a way to go in any respect of life.
Would love to go there again for our next special dinner in South Beach. I have no idea what inside is like, loved outside dining there.

Great Meal, Service, View
Anyone who has eaten on a patio on South Beach knows that usually it's all about the people watching first and the meal is secondary. BLT Steak reverses the pecking order by providing perfectly prepared dishes with efficient polite service. The complimentary foie gras was very good and the steaks were cooked perfectly. The sides are served in individual cast iron crocks which help keep their contents warm even in the stiffest ocean breeze and is indicative of the consideration given to diners. I've eaten in most of the best steak houses around the country and this location does a fine job representing the segment.

Perfectly prepared steaks, a wonderful dinner with outstanding service. A terrific dining experience.

This place never disappoints!
As usual, the service and food here were excellent. Even though it's pricey, I will come back here every time I'm in Miami - it's worth every cent!!

I took a client here for dinner, as it was within walking distance from their hotel. We were certainly not disappointed with the food or the service. All of our steaks were cooked to perfection and the flavor of the steaks was outstanding. They have a decent wine list but pricey. Then again, what isn't pricey in South Beach? The sides are realtively small compared to other steak houses I have been to, so consider this if you a feeding a large group of people. They may do this because they definitely do not skimp on the weight of their steaks. I had all I could do to finish my New York strip.

We do not live in the area, but when we are there, we eat at BLT Steak. We then have very high expectations. They are always met, and we love every moment of it. The food is great, and it is hard to decide what to eat. The POPOVERS are so wonderful!! The servers are outstanding - what could be better? Nothing. We count the days until we return!

I live on Ocean Drive, and
I live on Ocean Drive, and have tried virtually every fine-dining restaurant on the street. This is hands-down the best food we've found. The chef is creative with preparations -- and it seems that every meal has some unexpected yet tasty garnish, vegetable or grain.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of The Best !!
Awesome. Miami's a town with many GREAT restaurants ... BLT is one of the best!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful food - the popovers
Beautiful food - the popovers are to die for! Had a wonderful steak and being right on Ocean Drive meant it was perfect for people watching.

Miami Spice Menu
Enjoyed the ceviche appetizer and steak entree were very good and full of flavor. Was very disappointed that wine pairing option was not available although it was mentioned on the menu. Would also prefer to not have to ask for Miami Spice menu but instead be offered it with the other menus, especially if I am sent direct emails from the restaurant promoting the menu.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Could not ask for more....
I have lived in Miami for 5 years and this dining experience was by far the best I have ever had here. We started with the Lobster cob salad as an appetizer (We could have left the restaurant after just that salad and been perfectly amazed). For my dinner I ordered the Seven Spice Duck and the Parmesan Gnocchi and broiled green beans. There are not words to describe that duck. The meat was perfectly tender with a crisp outer skin. To my surprise they put the duck's liver on top and that combined creaminess with the crisp and then tender flavors of the duck PLUS the chopped apricot given to pair was SPLENDID. Soooooooooooo good. really. amazing. Between the food, wine, service, and ambiance we could have never asked for more.

Business Dinner Friendly
We had a group of 5, with a guest from Europe, so we wanted to share some South Beach color but also have excellent food. As I live in the area, I had a sense of how many restaurants on Ocean Drive have lousy food. BLT worked great. We were able to show off Miami Beach and enjoy excellent food with guests who have very different food preferences (Steak, Sushi and Seafood).
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not cheap, still good
Nice ambience, food was good (had a New York strip steak ordered medium-rare. Was cooked nicely, meet was good, but the price ($50) was a little to high, regarding the price for mashed potatoes added another $10 to the bill... No sides come with $50!!
My wive had Cesar's salad, which was good. Wine list is ok, but also a little overpriced.
For $200 you tend to stay a while, but dinner was served in record time, freeing the table for the next guests...
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently a step above the other
Blt Steak is unique in flavor and classy in the way they present their dishes. Lots of flavor great quality and cooked to perfection. AAA+ recommended!
8/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
My wife and I had a terrific breakfast. She stated she had the best french toast of her life ... my meal the ham and cheese croissant also very delicious. Wish we would have had more time to eat dinner at BLT that day..... GREAT food and service.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
“Excellent but to expensive...”
Every aspect of our dining experience was absolutely perfect. The staff was professional, friendly, yet unobtrusive. The wine list is exceptional and our selection was amazing. The food had to of been one of the best dinners we have ever had...appetizers, firsts, and main. Recommend the tuna appetizer, salad, steak, and dessert. Cannot wait to return.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Quaint with wonderful menu
I've had brunch / lunch at BLT the last three times I've been in Miami with friends. Always great food and service. Love it!
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
What an AMAZING restaurant!
Seriously one of the best restaurants I have eaten at in my entire life. The decor and service were impeccable, the food was delicious. It was exactly what I was hoping. Now, if you are looking for something to go easy on your wallet, this is not the place - BUT it is totally worth it. What a truly great place to dine!
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, and roof top views
Great brunch items. Didn't try any of the alcoholic drinks but the food was good. Only complaint was that the service for roof top service was a bit slow (~30 minutes). Otherwise, the staff was friendly, and the prices were fine. I would definitely recommend it, and would return. We tried the Front Porch Cafe as well, and this had better food. The rooftop views are excellent as well.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had the Miami Spice special menu and accompaning suggested wine flight. Everything was excellent. High quality steak. Cooked to perfection. Waiter was exceptional.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our waiter made the night....extremely friendly.
The food was good but there could have bee less fat on the Beef short ribs....

Great food on Ocean Drive!
Ocean drive is better known for the resturants that cater to tourists and don't care if they see them again. BLT is truly an exception. Great food, attentive service. They have a limited but excellent selection of seafood, and wonderful sushi!
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very Good Overall
I'm going to give this an 8 out of 10. The steak was a bit tough and that was a let down for a place that specializes in STEAK :( The popovers are amazing :)
9/5/2013 5:00:00 PM
Viva La Betsy!
Excellent service with great atmosphere and a warm, friendly greeting.
Spice menu was the best I've seen wit a sample of their finest offerings and full portions.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food at The Betsy
We had an excellent time at BLT. Highlights included the popovers, great service and a delicious and reasonably priced Miami Spice menu. A great steakhouse on the north side of Ocean Drive.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent options, but be carefu
We went in anticipating their excellent Dover Sole. But they had none this night. As I only eat seafood, the server offered that I could select the fish entee from the Miami Spice menu. It was smallish, and quality of fish not up to BLT's usual standards. In fairness, it is a stretch for BLT to get to a $39 meal, but I didn't expect them to skimp to make Miami Spice's pricing, but use the special to build loyal patrons.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
BLT Steak Miami spice
Absolutely the best Miami spice dinner we had in five nights of dining.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always great. Ahi appetizer is the best. Popovers are to die for.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Miami Place
BLT Steak in Miami Beach was fantastic. The tuna tartare appetizer is a must. We had all sushi entrees (rainbow, beef wagyu, and dragon) and they were each great. The rainbow tasted lighter and fruitier compared to the others, but all were great. The carrot cake dessert was outstanding, as it is not like a traditional carrot cake slice.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not a typical steakhouse,
Not a typical steakhouse, more a smaller hotel restaurant, but not a hotel restaurant when it came to the quality of the menu, wine list and the food. The room was open and bright, which was nice because it was a business dinner and we could all see and speak to each other with ease, and there were 8 of us, so that was important.
Good, attentive service... and the food was well prepared wtih the sides easy to share.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistenly well prepared
Consistenly well prepared food where steaks are of excellent quality.

The Miami Spice Menu offered
The Miami Spice Menu offered a nice selection and a great value. We will return again for the awesome Pop Overs !!
The restaurant is looking a little worn, it's time for a makeover ...

Our night out.
We loved the food and the great welcome from our waiter, unfortunately later on he was overwhelmed by a large table that he was attending to and left us with a younger less experienced member of staff. It was still a great night out in Miami and lived up to our expectations.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Defintiely a top steak house
Defintiely a top steak house with excellent sides and seafood dishes.

Nice South Beach spot
Nice steakhouse. In a hotel (small) lobby so ambience is not off the chart but it is fine.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
had a fabulous dinner with
had a fabulous dinner with my wife, sisters and brother in laws while we were in town for a football game. Service was perfect, wine list was exceptional and the dinner was awesome. Will definitely dine there again.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lots of choices on Ocean Drive can make it difficult and honestly most are average at best. This gem is inside The Betsy which is an elegant hotel with a hip yet laid back vibe. No one will chase you with a menu offering tequila shots at 9 am...or even 9 pm. We ate inside as it was getting warm but outside is lovely as well. Staff is professional , friendly and attentive. The food was wonderful. If you're hungry the French toast is amazing...like no other! Omeletes were very nice as well. My boyfriend used to say "you can't screw up breakfast". We have since found that to be possible and to the contrary...The Betsy makes it special!!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Return visit was great
The food, service and experience was outstanding. Don't forget to take the popover recipe home.

Great food, nice setting
We went here twice during our stay in Miami, both for lunch. When you walked by BLT, we didn't have the host/hostess chasing us down to look at a menu or eat there. Every other restaurant along that strip of Ocean Ave was trying to get us to come to their restaurant. Our belief is, if the food/restaurant are good, you don't need to have people swaying you to come in. My only complaint about our second visit, was the staff was a bit too attentive. Our waiter asked me on at least 3 occasions if I was done, when I wasn't. I was enjoying a glass of wine and wanted slowly enjoy my food. It wasn't busy, so no one was waiting for our table. Our first visit we sat outside and it was perfect... food, service, ambiance.. etc.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect every time
This place never fails to please! Food was excellent, service was excellent.
I really enjoyed their giant gruyere pop overs. I had their roasted beet salad
and grilled swordfish. My husband had wagyu tartare and miso black cod. Sides
of grilled asparagus & glazed sprouts. We finished off dinner with an amazing
fig and banana bread pudding! Simply divine!

The best Steakhouse in Miami
This was our Second visit to BLT and it was truly incredible.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Awesome as always
I was there three times in four days. And have been there many times before. I have always been very pleased. From the great food to the great service. Superb.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
great food experience
the steaks were excelent, very well cooked, they were worthy every dollars! Service was outstanding, wine chart good. Just one remarke: the noise level was high. We recommended it.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
What a wonderful place. Inside or outside you cannot go wrong. The tuna tartar is the best in South Beach. Don't be shy - eat the popovers. The steaks are done perfectly. I wouldn't hesitate to go back again.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful Food, Service and "Feel"
A world class steakhouse. If you've never had the popovers at BLT, then your in for a surprise treat. The servings are large. Pricing may seem a bit high, but once you've seen the serving sizes, you'll understand why. You easily have enough to take home the next day's dinner.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best Quaility Steak
cooked in the French tradition you can always get a properly made steak.
The whole meal is outstanding.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was my first time to the restaurant after dining at their several restaurants in NYC. From the moment we sat down to when we left, the food was absolutely incredible. We are definitely coming back!
