My wife is gluten free and there were a lot of options for her. The service was excellent and the staff very attentive. It made for a very special evening. Oh yeah, the porterhouse was awesome too!

We were at the restaurant a year ago and it was much better. The shrimp for the shrimp cocktail was rubbery, the bacon appetizer was not good at all and the wedge salad was extremely overpriced for the size, the cowboy ribeye was very overpriced for the quality of the meat. We would not go back again, it was very disappointing.

It's a treat...special tasters to start with, popover is killer, steaks are excellent. Service is excellent as well. A little pricey...but no more than other quality restaurants.

Disappointing! The atmosphere was nice, the bar area was a great spot to grab a pre-dinner cocktail, but what a shame the food doesn’t match. Our steaks were not done to order and had to be sent back. The sides were not good - the Mac and cheese was dry, the bacon in the Brussels sprouts was hard - no, not crispy, hard. The wine selection was good. The service was very good. For a pricey steak restaurant located in a Ritz-Carlton, we expected much much more.

Since BLT opened in Aruba we've been there three times. We were so happy the first time that we couldn't wait to go again, and were just as happy the second time. This year we were somewhat disappointed. First, of our party of six, three of us were looking forward to the short ribs. Not until we placed our order were we told they were out of them. My two children ordered surf and turf, and both were disappointed in the lobster which they said had very little flavor. I don't eat lobster, and I don't think you do much to it when you cook it, so as far as the flavor I defer to aficionados to know why that might be. The steak I had was good, but I'm not sure it was good enough to justify the price. We ordered some side dishes to share, and the mashed potatoes were served in a crock with barely enough for one person, never mind to pass around. The asparagus was slightly more generous. A meal for six, drinks for three, and a few desserts came to over $1000 before the tip. The atmosphere was nice as we dined outdoors, the service was excellent, but the food and the cost left us doubtful that we will return next year.

Was on the island for 5 nights and actually stayed at a hotel down the street from BLT with plenty of restaurants in and around. We discovered BLT and had dinner there the last two nights. We had dinner at the bar, Lehino and Mr. Greg were the bartenders and their remarkable service and bring ever so attentive was the main reason we made it 2 nights in a row. Food was remarkable and by far the best restaurant on the island!! Service as well!!

I usually don't write reviews but I hope that through my review, others give their opinion. I'm lactose intolerant and as such did not find much that I could order to accompany my delicious steak. The steak was great, the service fantastic, the choices to order with steak, not acceptable. I hope they do better for future guests. Such a great place, expectations are high.

Have eaten at Eddie Merlots, Hyde Park, Ruth’s Cris, Morton’s, The Chop House in Naples and Gibson’s and Chicago Cut, and expected it to be a notch above, given the reviews, but was somewhat disappointed. Was given a Restaurant Guide book by the concierge at the neighboring Marriott where we were staying which indicated that there was a Sunset Menu at a limited price but was advised it was discontinued at seating. This was never addressed by the management. The service was outstanding but the flies and the gnats on the outdoor patio were unbearable and detracted from the experience. The beef short rib had a hard crust on the outside which was hard to chew but exceptional in the center. My wife had the fillet which was good but she and I ate at Papillon in Nord two days earlier and had the early menu special which featured a fillet, which was outstanding in comparison to the one at BLT.
