BLT Steak at the Camelback Inn in Scottsdale is a part of the JW Marriott resort and serves classic American steakhouse cuisine. The open-air seating with extra tall ceilings provides an airy setting that blends into the outdoor seating and complements the open-air kitchen.
BLT Steak is known for Staub cast iron pans that are used for both cooking and serving. The BLT Steak has dinner, dessert and cocktail menus with a special �bar bites� selection. The main courses include rack of lamb with merguez sausage, salt brick chicken with kale and pine nuts and grilled branzino with artichoke barigoule.
My food with BLT was very good. The short ribs and Sea Bass were exquisite. The fontina potatoes were heated correctly and the texture was spot on. The onion rings were a disappointment and had to be returned due to being greasy and soft. The chocolate dessert was very good along with the ice cream. I thought the apple pie wasn't crisp enough but the flavor overall was good. The service was great and everyone was very hospitable.
One of my favorite steak houses ever. I am sorry that it is leaving this location. I will try some of their others. I hope the hotel keeps the popovers.
BLT has been one of our favorite restaurants because the food and service are consistently outstanding. The popovers are a special favorite of ours. We especially love going when the weather is cool enough to allow outdoor dining. The view of the city from the patio is amazing. We are so sad that it is closing. We think that Marriott is making a huge mistake. There isn't anything they can bring in that will surpass BLT. We will be eating there weekly until it closes. A special note of praise for Sami the server. We always make sure to ask for her. Her service is above and beyond.
We looked forward to dining there but it was not like it used to be. The food was mediocre. Not worth the price. I hope the new establishment will be better.
Great time, just a shame to hear it's closing soon.
He had the rib-eye, I had the halibut - both were cooked beyond perfection. The popovers are heaven. Dining experience was 100% on point!! Only complaint, we live in MN and can't come here more often!!
I really like BLT - I have been to this one several times and others around the country. I like the pate and the popovers. My steak was cooked to perfection and was very tasty. The provincial tomatoes also were excellent. My wife's fish was not so good - it was dry and rather tasteless. Some would say, you shouldn't order fish in a steak house, but if they are going to serve it, it should be good/excellent.
But my main reason to not recommend this BLT is that it is closing next month. Our server told us that it is not relocating, just closing.
Excellent food! The New York strip and sea bass were fantastic!!
Went to celebrate a birthday. It was a big miss... Seemed that everything was over salted to compensate for lack of flavor. The ribs were dry and tasteless, left them on the plate. The sides were ok but it seemed everything was seasoned so similarly that it all tasted about the same - smokey salty. We were seated next to hostess stand which made us feel we were in the way as they talked over our table about their other customers. We asked if marshmallows were in the brownie or just on top and no one seemed to know. Just seemed like the staff lacked training or oversight. Service would have been ok at a lessor restaurant but I expect a higher level of service at this price point. We ordered the 11 year old a desert thinking it would have a birthday candle or something... Nope... Just a happy birthday written on the plate of the free coffee brownie bites that every table gets. Most 11 year olds don't like coffee things - just a lack of attention on our servers part which summed up the entire experience.
Have dined here often with no issues and excellent service but this time anything that could go wrong did go wrong. Manager comp'd the dinner which was nice ( and appropriate) but I'd rather pay and have a dining experience that was anticipated.
We will go back as it is normally top notch- we just caught them on an off night.
