L.G. Smith's Steak & Chop House - Renaissance Aruba
We went here for our Anniversary and did not enjoy it. The service was good and most of the food was decent but our steak was awful. My wife and I both ordered a 30 day dry aged steak and it tasted terrible. This was our first experience with dry aged beef so I cannot compare it to others but I would not order it again. We eat steak atleast once a week and we were looking forward to trying this but regret the decision.
This was our third year going to L.G. Smith while vacationing in Aruba. We have always enjoyed our meals and have recommended to our friends in the past. Although the service was terrific I must admit the food quality did not live up to the last few years.
Went here on our second trip to Aruba. The food was amazing but what took it to the next level was the service the staff was phenomenal. Would recommend for a special occasion dinner.
Great location with view of the water if you get a good table. Food was good and ambiance excellent
It’s good to experience only if you have the all inclusive package from Renaissance hotel. Otherwise, overpriced for the quality of food. Our dining experience both nights averaged 2 hours while we watched ppl come in after us get served at the same time or before us. The waiter frequently forgot about us which was disappointing. They also ignored our the fact that it was our anniversary even though I made note in our reservation (but we saw the lovely way they celebrated the table’s anniversary next to us.) Overall, more hype than what it’s worth.
The service at the restaurant is amazing! Ate here while on vacation 3 nights of 7 and enjoyed every meal. If I could give one criticism it would be the desserts. For a high end restaurant I feel that they could step it up one notch.
Amazing restaurant everything was good and the service was good as well
I’ve had steaks from Maine to Spain.
The steak “ dry aged” was not fit to eat
Prepared very poorly. Didn’t look good on the plate
The entire staff was phenomenal. The food was excellent! They added special touches for my husband's birthday.
Our server Andrew was amazing! The food was delicious. Will definitely visit again on our next trip.
Michael was an amazing server, made the whole experience!
Everything was great! The service is always excellent and the food was amazing as usual. We always enjoy ourselves there.
Fantastic food and service! Would absolutely go back! Highly recommend the crab cake appetizer!
What a great steak! Service was fantastic and the wine was excellent. Must visit!
Over priced and the quantity of food served was in line with the prices.
Excellent service and excellent food! Recommend eating here every night if you are doing the all inclusive with the Renaissance! Our server, Big G, was awesome, so be sure and ask for him!
The food and ambience were amazing!
Best steak ever!! Can’t be compared! I wish we ate here earlier during our stay so that we could have ate there every night.
Very disappointing, the service was great, the drinks were great but the food just did not deliver on all accounts.
Good meat and service. Love it. I find a bit overpriced.
The restaurant is attractive, with an appealing atmosphere. The DJ background music was enjoyable. The steaks were tender and cooked well though I felt they were overpriced given the portion sizes.
Service was attentions professional.
This is by far the best steak house on Aruba! We eat here at least twice every time we visit.
This restaurant is outstanding!! I visited twice in one week for my 40th birthday vacation. The waiters are excellent, friendly and the food is great! I will definitely return when I come back to Aruba!!
Unique experience. Excellent presentation, food and service would highly recommend
The place was nice like all steak places it’s not cheap but it was nice food was fine But it’s not cheap
Great food! I recommend the steak of course. Andrew was our server. Probably one of the best servers that we ever had. He went above and beyond to make our experience enjoyable. We ended up eating at this location 2x during our stay. I got the grouper the 2nd time around. Delicious but not as good as the steak. I would definitely recommend giving it a try.
Food and Service were great. But we were sat in an empty restaurant next to a family with two screaming 2 year old kids. Ruined our dining experience.
We went there for Easter. The service was great and the food was amazing. My steak was cooked and seasoned perfectly. It was one of the best steaks I ever had. We loved it so much that we went back few days later.
Amazing birthday dinner- great service and attention!
Anniversary celebration with wife and kids. It was a late evening for which we were delayed arriving by an hour due to our elongated ATV tour in the afternoon. The food was delicious and service was very good. They gave a special treat at dessert that capped off a delightful meal.
Loved this place. Michael, our waiter is one on the best ever
This was an amazing meal! We ordered the special of the day, bone in ribeye for two. This was the best steak I've ever eaten! Service was superior, ambience amazing!
We have been going to LG Smith for 30 years and have never, ever had a bad meal or evening. We both recommend it to everyone.
Wonderful birthday experience! Michael was very attentive and also fun!
I ordered the 30 day dry aged rib eye, medium rare. It came out well done. Our server was courteous and meant well, but was not sufficiently skilled for this restaurant. The 30th anniversary dessert came out - after a long wait - with Happy "University" and the names of two people, but not our names. My wife's fillet was cooked properly. Overall, this is a good, but certainly not great, restaurant. The service and food quality are not equal to the price.
This place rivals any high end steak house in a big US city. The steaks were great and the drink menu was very creative.
Jean and the rest of the staff were excellent. We had two toddlers with us and the staff was amazing with them! They split up dishes, interacted and gave us a five star experience. My wife and I both had different steaks and both were fantastic. Thank you all for a great night out! We have been to Aruba numerous times and it is so nice to see a restaurant that is always consistent! Awesome job!
Do not get the Kobe A5 tenderloin. I have had A5 Waygu On numerous occasions and this easily was the worst I’ve ever had. No fat marbling whatsoever. Not worth $116 . Very very disappointing.
Service was outstanding. Big G provided cordial and professional service to us. He is an asset!
The food was delicious . . . well prepared, presented and cooked to our liking!
