Everything, from start to finish, was excellent…my wife & I had a reservation for 7pm, but showed up a little early and were accommodated happily. Our waiter, I want to say “Big Jay”? (my hearing is atrocious and my wife thought that was what he said) was tip top in every aspect. Awesome personality, super informative, accommodating, funny and charismatic! We started w some ahi tuna (perfectly done), she got the 12oz wagyu, I got a 16oz 45 day dry aged ribeye w brussel sprouts, creamed spinach and truffle fries as sides…everything exceeded our expectations. This spot is pricey, but it’s 100% worth it, presentation, ambience, food and service are all a home run! We’ll be in Aruba for 10 days, I think we’re going to have to come back for a second meal before we leave, thanks again to everyone at LG Smith’s!!!

Best steak restaurant in Aruba. "Smoky" drinks an experience and a fun experience. Had a great price on a great wine--Shafer One Point Five.
Service friendly, but slow. Had to pour own wine several times, and we were ready to leave 10 minutes before we got the check.
Overall--a very good experience.

It was a wonderful dinner. Everything was prepared just the way we requested and the drinks were wonderful. They had a mobile bartender for special drinks, which we enjoyed watching. We were celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary. LG Smith’s made it very special. Thank you!
