BLT Steak - at The Ritz-Carlton, Aruba
Our server Andres was exceptional. He was great!
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!!!
We vist BLT at the Ritz -Carlton Aruba every visit, usually 2 times per year. Excellent food and service.
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.
Father’s Day dinner
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.
While on aruba we go a couple of times! Its not just steak! The best Dover Sole in the world! Sit outside and enjoy the breeze!
Steak was burnt.
You go to a sterkhouders for steak. Good steak. And what did we get at the BLT Steak.....good steak. Keep up the good quality.
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.
Amazing service and the food was super delicious. Everyone who works there did an amazing job at taking care of my family and I. I recommend the braised short ribs and the lamb chops. They were the tastiest and worth while.
Always amazing service and food. Love this place and highly recommend.
Great food but even better service. This is the high end experience you are looking for! They went above and beyond for my wife and my anniversary/ honeymoon!!!! Thanks again!
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.
Loved our waiter! The food was beyond expectations
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!!!
Our host Carlos was very polite and he made our evening special. I had the filet mignon, which was a great choice. Very well cooked. Desserts were also very tasty. My family and I will certainly come back.
We went back the next night for more!
Very nice, good food
The service was good -our waitress was great- Gwen was super attentive . The food was cold -I ordered the brick chicken it was over cooked dry and flavorless .super disappointed
Most amazing experience! Mangala was our server and he was most attentive! Everyone was friendly and welcoming as many people waited on us. Lovely touch with the flowers for Mother’s Day. Going back again next Saturday when my daughter’s family arrives here.
The Manager and our waiter were great. They checked on our needs on a regular basis without being overbearing. My wife and I actually had dinner three (3) out of our six nights in Aruba so I would say we thought that everything was great!
Great service , great food.
We sat at the bar area and had the best service! The food was excellent, we also received complimentary after dinner shots and dessert. I highly recommend this place.
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.
Our server was EXCELLENT but the food was just ok. Not what I would have expected from a Ritz. They ran out apparently of Waygo steak which was a bummer and the food that we ordered instead was not all that great
The food was outstanding !!! Loved everything about this place. Wait staff was also amazing!!!It’s a bit pricey, but worth every penny. Will definitely be back on my next trip to Aruba.
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.
We were there for our 4th-5th time...it was another brilliant and excellent experience! Greg makes excellent drinks and knows the menu inside out!! Louisa is charming and very well organized. Both of them improve the quality of this experience tremendously!
Come every year total disappointment
Bartenders were wonderful. Friendly and very professional created a great environment for dinner. We enjoy sitting at the bar versus table service
Very slow service, even by island time standards. Popovers were cold. Entrees were just to average for island/resort prices.
WAY TO EXPENSIVE!!!!!!!!!
Enjoying our family vacation!
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.
