We have dined at the L.G. Smith Steakhouse many times before but this time the food was unacceptable. Our earlybird special for 2 included a surf and turf and stuffed chicken breast. The 4 oz filet was so tough we couldn't eat it but the shrimp were fine. The stuffed chicken breast (with spinach and cheese) was so over cooked... More

We had dinner at LG Smith's in the hotel and the food was excellent. The service was good and the atmosphere quiet and peaceful. Would recommend the food and experience to anyone visiting Aruba.

They were celebrating their 10 year anniversary and had a deal 40 dollars for the first meal and 10 for the second. The scenery out the window is magnificent (we saw a cruise ship leaving), watched the sunset. Had a wonderful meal. the service was Great! Wouldn`t have been able to eat here if we didn`t find this great deal.

Went on our annual trip to Aruba and stayed at the fabulous Renaissance hotel. Dined at LG’s, one of the best restaurants on the island and each experience continued to meet our expectations. Cuisine was excellent, as usual, and prepared to perfection. Timing of food delivery was excellent. Servers are well trained so that you are not waiting long between... More

Before I get to the food, I want to comment on the new (partial) decour. We loved the first transformation to the wood with white accents done years ago. It still looks elegant but modern, done in a way that it didn't date itself. This year we came after a few years away (more on that later) to see half... More

Good afternoon, thank you for your comments. After 10 years in business, L.G. Smith's Steak & Chop House received a well deserved 'rejuvenation' including new furniture, floorcovering artwork and lighting. We regret that the designers' choices did not coincide with your preferences; more regrettable is the fact that the filet was not amazing. All filets served are Certified Angus Beef... More

My husband and I recently returned from a week in Aruba and we enjoyed a fantastic meal at LG Smith's. I had a rib eye and my husband had filet mignon and both were prepared just as we had ordered. Our waiter was attentive without being intrusive. The quality of the meal, from start to finish, was superb. It's nice... More

Steak was good - Fish was not the catch of the day. The decor is nice. The view is spectacular. The food was okay but not up to the ambiance of the place. I think it is overpriced for the quality of the food. My steak was ordered medium and was served well.

We stayed at the Renaissance Marina Hotel and this restaurant is part of the hotel. After a day of travel this was a nice place to relax and enjoy a great meal. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. The service and atmosphere was perfect.

We were here during the Carnival parade and had an excellent view of the fun. However, the service was terrible and the food mediocre, and we couldn't help but wonder if they were understaffed on this island holiday. The small band playing made for a nice calm atmosphere after a long day on an airplane. We had been here many... More

Great view of the main drag in Oranjestad, able to catch part of Carneval from there. Terrific service from Heidi and her staff. As OP 87 states it is a little more upscale then many of the other places on the island. I had the fish which was excellent and my wife thoroughly enjoyed the steak. They also have one... More
