As a Chicagoan it is difficult to review a steak house, but LG does a really nice job. Wonderful wait staff. Food is very good. Wine selections are good. Definitely recommended.

We have been coming to Aruba for many years and love the food and service at LG Smith Steak House in the Renaissance Hotel. The dining room has cool, modern vibe with large picture windows that look out at the harbor. You can dine watching the sun set, cruise ships sailing away, and even listen to live jazz on weekends.... More

Great food, friendly staff. Pointer- you CAN order off the regular menu and pay the difference. They don't tell you that.

We stayed at the renaissance as all-inclusive guests. The first dining experience at the restaurant I was impressed. I felt that the sampler appetizer was very good, the steak and lobster were good and the creme brulee was very tasty. Service was very good as well. I thought the wine not the best, and I love most wine. The second... More

We always try to have at least one meal at LG Smith’s during our vacation. We have never had a problem with getting a reservation and the service has always been more than acceptable. The cocktails are expertly crafted and are satisfying to any palette. In addition to cocktails they have an extensive wine list. And the views of both... More

My steak was pretty good but the side dishes (mash potatoes and truffle cream corn) were comparable to frozen dinner sides and my wife's ravioli was terrible. Our server was inaudible. They did keep our water glasses full at all times though. Many better places on the island.

It is always our intention to "wow" our diners with delicious presentations and friendly efficient service. We appreciate your comments and will share them today with the team.

Great service, drinks and sides made up for average steaks. We were in a large party and they split us into 3 tables - not good.
