    Great atmosphere and good food. We had the lamp chops, tomahawk, crab cake, Mac and cheese, sirloin, and sautéed mushrooms with onions. For dessert we had the apple pie. It was tasty but I prefer no raisins. Great way to celebrate

    Best meal on Aruba! Everything was perfection! Izzy made a drink at our table from a drink cart and it was like a Cirque du Soleil experience! Twirling bottles in the air, colored bubbles from a gun, such fun to watch! Our waiter from Romania was informative, so personable and happy! Such a great experience.

    We really enjoyed our experience at L.G. Smith’s! The mixologist that made our cocktails at the table was fabulous and the drinks were delicious. My boyfriend ordered the ribeye from the butcher section - they came over with a cart to cut, weigh, and salt the meat. Both the ribeye and filet were delicious - tender and cooked to perfection. The only let downs were the sides and grilled Caesar salad… all lacked flavor

    An excellent dining experience, from start to finish. I could not recommend this restaurant more. The service staff were in every way, superior. My oysters were fresh and flavorful, table-side cocktails were memorable and delicious, and my lobster and filet were excellently prepared. My one suggestion is a hotter and faster steak sear, with more salt and pepper. We will certainly be back.

    Wonderful dinner for our first night in Aruba…bonus was our view of Carnival! We dined as a party of four with two teens, one of which has a wheat allergy. Our son’s allergy was accommodated with gluten free bread offerings and our server took the time to point out safe options on the menu. Steaks were perfect and all of the sides were delicious. Our kids were up for dessert, and the creme brûlée was amazing. All in all the perfect start to our vacation!!

    This is our second time at L.G. Smith's, and it was just as amazing as the first. The food is beautifully prepared and delicious, and the service is impeccable. Andre was attentive and charming! It's a steakhouse, but not in any way run-of-the-mill. Lots of options for food other than steaks, and lots of yummy sauces that never overwhelm the flavor of the beef. This is going to become our go-to place in Aruba!!

    I gave L.G. Smith 3 stars because I know they can do better. This is my second time here, and my first experience was 5 ☆. We ordered the tomahawk for 2, medium, and was sorely disappointed. The steak had no char and was (sigh) ......Well done. Some pieces were medium well, but not enough. The restaurant did rectify the problem by comping our drinks and taking some money off the bill. We will try L.G. Smith again to see if they just had a bad night, or is this their norm. I must mention that the service was great.

    Went over for dinner last night because we hadn't been there in awhile. We both really enjoyed our steaks; my wife had the NY striploin and I had the ribeye. Both were excellent, perfectly seasoned. I didn't even use the chimichurri sauce that I ordered. Omar was our server, and while he was super friendly and the food was not auctioned off, he never came back to see how we were doing until we were done. I would have expected better service here. The prices are not as bad as other steakhouses on the island, and -other than than the service, we had a really good meal.

    The New York Strip steak listed under entree was a very thin, full of fat, cheap steak at an expensive price. There was a section called signature steak, that the NY Steak was $15 more. I’m guessing that that one was a better cut. The Entree steak was 8 oz. The signature was 12 oz. I expected the difference in entree and signature to be in the size. I’m guessing now that it was in the quality. Our waiter should have explained their menu. Very disappointed in the steak. The rest of the food was very good.

    Was charged a fee to eat at the restaurant. I reserved a table stating it was a birthday. They didn’t acknowledge it at all. The service was extremely slow. We were done eating for 20 min before they came to take the plates away and asked us if we are ordering dessert. This is when I knew they were not bringing out anything for the birthday

    The food at L.G. Smiths is outstanding! 3 of us dined and 2 had steak and the other had short ribs. All of us felt the same: fantastic. In addition, and just as importantly, our server, Jean, was simply amazing! Very friendly, personable, knowledgeable, and hard working! If I could vote for server of the year, he’d be it!
