Located in The Ritz-Carlton, Aruba, BLT Steak is our interpretation of the classic steakhouse. Enhanced by the richness of Macassar Ebony tables and matching suede booths, BLT Steak combines a bistro ambiance with steakhouse fare to enjoy at the spacious bar, in the expansive dining room, or outdoor seating featuring a prime, ocean-view. On the menu, certified Black Angus or USDA Prime steak are dressed with a selection of sauces, ranging from Béarnaise to Horseradish, and are paired with decadent sides alongside a selection of fresh seafood and raw bar items, signature salads and blackboard specials - setting the standard for today’s modern steakhouse.

Most attentive service. Food is delicious with so many options. Manager Jose checked on us periodically. The waiter Mangala was terrific. He kept my 6 year old grandson busy with amazing origami birds he made for him. Have been coming to Aruba since 1994 and this has been the best dining experience.

First of all we were 5 minutes early for a reservation with an empty restaurant and were made to wait. The service was very good server was very knowledgeable and attentive we ordered the prime rib for two which is pre-cut and we were told it could be served at different temperatures my wife medium well myself rehr the entire steak came out rare running blood which was a turn-off for her. That was quickly rectified by the wait staff and the steak was re-fired. Side dishes for disappointing we were not told that they were basically not sharing portions unlike Sullivan's or Del Frisco's so we were a little underwhelmed by them. I have to say the Ambiance was that of an early 80s rock show why one would listen to 80s on 8 on Sirius for an ambience to a beautiful restaurant on a nice Aruban night is beyond me listening to lover boy over dinner is not my idea of appropriate dinner music. However on the plus side the cheese popovers or phenomenal some of the best I've ever had and the signature watermelon mojito was certainly one of the best drinks I have ever had. And I will try to replicate when I am home it was definitely a work of art

The main course was very good the sides were all Luke warm and dry and the famous popover was burnt. I told them about the popover and they just kinda blew us off.

Elmer was perhaps the best waiter that we have ever experienced. He was there for us in every way that we wanted. Dinner was perfect. Drinks were perfect. We look forward to going back and hopefully having him be our waiter.

Very inconsistent. One filet was perfection, the other charcoal. No king crab legs, no king crab risotto (on the chef SPECIAL list), no charcoal for the signature dark margarita. Hostess very uncomfortably, and at times forcefully, kept trying to sit people near the back of the restaurant near the restrooms while the front half of the restaurant near the windows remained empty. Silver Oak by the glass was a nice touch but honestly no better overall than a chain such as the Capital Grille. Not worthy of the reputation. Take a cab elsewhere on the island for a much better steak and experience.

Disappointed in crab cake appetizer, very dry, not much taste. We got the porterhouse for 2, filet was delicious, sirloin was slightly undercooked( asked for med-rare) middle was raw and chewy.

BLT is a very expensive restaurant that you expect to deliver an outstanding meal. The food is good...but you are expecting outstanding given the prices.

The service is very good, and the setting is lovely.

Our food took an extraordinarily long time to arrive and when it finally arrived, it was cold! The restaurant was not busy. Clearly they are dealing with timing issues.

Food and service were terrible. Quality of the beef was mediocre. Service was slow and only one person to handle 10 people and handling other tables as well. Would not recommend BLT in Aruba. Very disappointed since we recommended this to our friends. Had been to other BLTs previously and this was the worst

This is not the BLT from New York.
There was nothing special of about any of the dishes.
My wife ordered a Caribbean lobster tail, which the waiter said was from a 1.5 lb. lobster.
It was maybe 3 oz., overcooked and tough and it cost $56.
This was a total rip-off and she should have sent it back.
My steak was nothing special - I make better steaks on the barbecue.
It seems this BLT has opted for the "bottom line" - we will never return.

This year our first night with frank Judy Frankie caryn and Paulie and roe joined us
It was a pretty good meal. The popovers Are great
Our service was a bit slow. Drinks were good but after first martini with blue cheese olives they said they ran out and couldn't make them. Manager came and said he was sorry and bartender should of made them.
The steaks were very good. Mashed potatoes were excellent and corn was best I've had
The asparagus came partially burnt and shrunk.
All in all a good start

Nice location, the dining was a little too dark for us. We would prefer Sinatra (or similar) for ambiance music. The dining was a pretty good experience, just not as spectacular as we expected to be.

BLT Aruba was enjoyable. The pop overs were outstanding plus they made great Aperol Spritzes!
The steak, filet migon, was cooked as ordered. It could not compare to another top steak house we frequent, but still good. The gratin potatoes were a disappointment. We skipped dessert.
