As you would expect for a high end steak house with an excellent reputation the service was perfect. Attentive without being overbearing, very nice that the manager came over to the table to say hello. Everything is fresh, including the salads and as a resident of Puerto Rico, I can tell you it is difficult to get fresh salads at restaurants. Portions are good sized, though the side dishes really aren't big enough to share with the table. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. The little extras like the popovers and mini cookies are nice. Will go back

Thank you BLT!
Another fantastic anniversary dinner at BLT. The meal was over the top as was the service of the staff, especially when they made a large shape of a heart with rose petals and wished us happy anniversary. The fillet just melted in our mouths and the side dishes such as the "hen of the woods" mushrooms and gnocchi pomodoro made every bite delightful. Thank you BLT!

Having eaten at BLT steak
Having eaten at BLT steak in New York previously we were expecting a very quiet ambience but the it was just too loud and noisy. It may be that they are trying to cater to their hotel clientele or to bring in a younger crowd. The food was very good although my steak, ordered medium, was really medium rare. Food quality an presentation were very good.

Noisy but the food is outstanding
Our group of six was seated next to the kitchen, which may have been the reason we heard a blender whirling constantly - not a good sound. The music was also more like a night club then a fine dining experience. The extra touches provided, pate, popovers, brownie bites show that BLT is happy to serve you and our food was excellent - the short ribs very tender, the veal chop perfectly cooked. The sides are individual sized - not really sharing size.
Our waitress didn't seem like she wanted to be there or that she enjoyed serving, but the two managers were EXCELLENT. The greeted us at the door, stopped by the table several times, even served our dessert when the waitress became overwhelmed.
We will go back, thanks to the managers

Best restaurant experience san juan
We were blessed to have Yamuel as our server. This man was born to serve. I've never seen anything like it. This is a great example how a restaurant goes from Good to outstanding just bc the service is on point. The Popovers were incredible and different. The cookies were complimentary and a nice touch. The drinks- omg the best drinks we had all week. The food was tasty. Im not a fan of the sauces they offer and how their steak is charred but it still was a great piece of steak. The ambiance was nice. The chef is originally a pastry chef so imagine how incredible the desserts were. Overall this was the best dining experience and actually the most expensive.But the service and drinks is what actually brought us back again the following night

What a great evening! We had been to the one in NYC and while vacationing in Puerto Rico I found that the Ritz had one! So excited made a reservation right away. Everything was good, I can't say enough about the service! I can't remember our waiter's name but he was terrific!! Food was delicious, too full for dessert, but they brought out a little cookie that was soooo good!!! The popovers are to die for - have the recipe now - will try to make them this summer. If unsuccessful, you'll see us in NYC soon! Highly recommend!!!

Wonderful food but weak wine list
Excellent dinner. Tuna tartare is special. A glass of Verve Clicquot was a relative bargain at $25 for the larger-than normal serving size but the rest of the wine list was wines that had glass prices that were at least 50% above the US retail BOTTLE price. Stick with Verve or beer.

We had a meeting with a client at this location and it turned out to be both a great dining experience and business meeting. The ambiance was terrific and we had a great time.

Excelent late night dinner!
Had a late night dinner at BLT and food was amazing! Tuna tartare was awesome and steak was cooked perfectly! Had some grilled asparagus and jalapeño mashed potatos on the side. The potatoes were very spicy for my taste but if you like that then ur gonna love them ! Desserts are excelent !! All of them !! They have something for everyone! Needless to say that service was outstanding even though the restaurant was full. Definetly will be back to try some more!

This is the place where you would love every bite of the food with and excellent service and great contemporary steakhouse ambiance.

Outstanding steak, average service.
Nuff said! The restaurant has plenty of employees that each look pretty busy, but the manager had to refill our drinks. Unfortunately, when one decides to splurge and have $49 steaks, one also expects to see the waiter more than twice.

Super Great Place
I have been traveling to San Juan for many years and find BLT to be one of my favorite placing in San Juan

THE BEST STEAKHOUSE OF PR
I go to BLT in special occasions, and the steaks always are outstanding.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Much better than expected
Dinner at BLT Steak was a very pleasant surprise for me. Years ago I went to this restaurant and thought it was not bad, but I did not particularly like it. This time was very different. The filet mignon was excellent, cooked exactly as ordered. The potato skins as a side dish were also excellent. Service was very good, but there is room for improvement.
The restaurant was almost full when we arrived, but still there were two or three empty tables, and I feel that before being taken to our table we were made to wait at the bar much longer than necessary, which is the only thing I did not like about this visit to BLT.

Steak House Yum
My husband and I stayed at the Ritz where BLT is located. We received great service on the property and it continued as we entered BLT. They host was very pleasant and it was a short wait for our table. Usually when seated at a booth I have to slide over wrinkling my dress or skirt. At BLT, the host pulled out the table. I was pleasantly surprised and very happy. Our waiter was attentive and suggested the very tasty jalapeño mashed potatoes. He also offered to have the chef email the recipe to me. I ordered short ribs and my husband ordered a pork chop, both were delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant. There is a little wait between each course but its worth the wait!

The food was tasty and interesting, great variety on the menu, nice specials. Drinks were innovative and well prepared. I will say that everything is a la carte so it does get expensive.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service does not meet the standards of such an expensive restaurant. There is a long wait between courses even when the restaurant was only at about its 60% occupancy. The wine menu is overpriced (cheap wines priced at about 5-6 times the real cost), but we ordered a bottle and ended up taking half of it with us because the waitress failed to refresh our glasses during the meal. The manager spent about 45 minutes speaking (flirting?) with a tourist who was dining alone instead of asking us or other customers if everything was fine. On the other hand, the food is excellent: the meat is exquisite and the sides are amazing. Even the bread is magnificent. Good for special occasions if you are willing to wait a lot and tolerare poor service.

excellent experience overall
The food, service and ambience was above and beyond my expectations. The wait staff was so hospitable and polite. A terrific dining experience. The food was delicious as well.

Decent food and very good service makes a very enjoyable evening!
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dishes take a little long coming out between courses. Food above average, service is very attentive. You will be in for a treat if you get Jose for your waiter because of him I gave 5 stars for service
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, VERY expensive. We each has 1 drink, we shared a Ceasar salad (that was our appetizer). We each had a steak and I had a baked potato. It was 219.00.

They have great food. We always
They have great food. We always eat here when we are here for vacation. The only problem is the noise level is too much.

Great steak house
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.

Great service and food
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.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
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.

Went to celebrate my mother's birthday. The staff was incredibly attentive. But overall it wasn't an experience that left a memorable mark.

Loved our meal.
