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.

By far the best meal on Aruba! Beautiful view, delicious food (and coming from NY we have been to a fair share of steakhouses) knowledgeable staff - excellent recommendations! Dennis is the embodiment of the island motto “One Happy Island”! Highly recommend!!!

The food was good, but not exceptional, the table service was welcoming. We had advised the restaurant through open table comments that we were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary, and the hostess seemed a bit put-out by that, not sure why, but a unwarranted and negative first impression for sure.

When first sat we were immediately overwhelmed with the loudness coming from a larger table next to us. The couple in the other side of us told us we should move as they had been obnoxiously loud for the last hour. I looked around any many tables looked to be upset about the noise level coming from the one group. I spoke with the manager and he very willingly moved us. Very thankful for this. Service from Gwen was outstanding. Food was great. Would recommend.

Outstanding experience with great service and food options. I got the sole. Kids selections were good too. Cocktails were great and the service was spot on. Great location too, we were staying at the Marriott. Food could have been slightly better but I’m still very happy with my experience and the flavors. Definitely worth a dinner during your stay.

Waitress was wonderful! Food was not prepared to liking. We eat steak often so when we send food back it’s for a reason. Steak was over cooked at first, then slightly under cooked. Someone usually waits until the food is cut but that didn’t happen with the second steak. Manager did come by the table, by this time I had lost my appetite. Wife made dinner enjoyable by keeping the mood light.

Stayed at the Ritz-Carlton few times now and were always satisfied with BLT. This time the $115 Wagyu were horrible. For this pricing $$$ they seriously should make triple sure it’s spot on. Our other food at table was good. May stay at Ritz-Carlton again but avoid BLT.

Service was less than stellar. Our sides were not cooked properly. Baked potato was hard and my asparagus was more than crunchy. My hanger steak was so tough. Our prime steaks from Costco we grill at home are way better. Was super disappointed when we left. Just was not worth the high prices.

The service was spectacular me and my family love to dine here and always the service is top notch.

Apetizers where very good. However our Porterhouse for 2 took a bit long and when it arrived for me it was not the right temperature and also it was too salty for my taste.

Side dishes where ok too and desserts my girlfriend loved the strawberries Sunday.

I just wish they can get the temperature of the steak right! This is not the first time it has happened.

Another fabulous experience at BLT Steak. Wife and I split the 20 oz. Kansas City cut and it was seasoned, cooked, and presented perfectly. The mashed potatoes with jalapeños and spinach were amazing as well. Service by Andres impeccable. Highly recommended and you will not be disappointed!!!

The Maitre d’ was very unfriendly and she just seemed like she didn’t want to be bothered. We were sat on time, but we were rushed through our meal. The waiter was very nice, but didn’t understand our request to leave time after the appetizers for our main course to come out. Even after reassuring us that our food wouldn’t come out quickly, it came our less than 5 minutes after our appetizers were cleared. From start to finish we were done in about 45 minutes which is not what we like for vacation. The food was good, but nothing spectacular. Overall not a good experience and I would not recommend it to others, especially for the price.

The food and service at BLT Steak were very good. The pate at the beginning of the meal was an unexpected treat. The steaks were had were excellent. The prices seemed to be high even for a steakhouse.

The food and drinks at this restaurant are very pricey. With that said, we knew that going in, and it was hands down probably the best meal I’ve ever eaten. My husband ordered a steak, and I had the braised short ribs. Drinks were very good and we had the cinnamon mini donuts for dessert and from start to finish we were very impressed! Would definitely recommend and will go again next time we are in Aruba.

We dine here every time we are in Aruba which is 1-2x per year and it’s always hit or miss. In November it was a great meal and last week it was a miss. My lobster salad was drenched in dressing so as to cover the wilted lettuce. It wasn’t good at all. The service was good but the restaurant was fairly empty and it wasn’t that late. We will give it another try the next time we go and hopefully the food is good.

My appetizer was not delivered with the other two in my party. It came when the other two people were finished. Porterhouse was just ok. It was even hard to cut with a knife. It was our second visit and would probably not go back again.
