“Great food but prefer a different ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Didn't want to sit ouside because of strong winds that night so sat inside. Other reviews enjoy the ambiance, but my wife and I didn't. As crowd grew became very noisy, the lights are too bright and not very romantic.

Really enjoyed the popovers and the recipe. Had one of the better Ribeyes I have had (being from Texas that is saying something) that was perfectly cooked medium rare with my wife enjoying a great lobster. Jalapeno mashed potatoes were very good (not overpowering) but a very small portion for the price.

Very good service with some good reasonably priced wine.

Good choice.

“Great outdoor Miami Beach dining experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Dinner at BLT at the Betsy Hotel was a great outdoor Miami Beach dining experience. We made reservations and were promptly seated. We chose to sit on the Betsy porch and this provided that Miami Beach outdoor feel without the distraction of having the general public walk by your table on the sidewalk like many restaurants on that street have. The seating inside looked elegant and comfortable.
Our server was a sweetheart and the steak dinner was amazing. Everything is a la carte but the sides are meant to be shared so the portions are generous. Loved the popovers and they share the recipe with you which I though that was a nice touch.

“Great Service and Delicious Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

They got one of the best SoBe Outdoor Seating on Ocean Drive..
We really liked the ambience at Betsy Hotel and decided to sit down for dinner, the service and the presentation was amazing..
I would highly recommend the special Steak for 2 and the salad + fries goes soo well with it!

After dinner we really enjoyed our first BLT Steak experience and signed up for the club card. They were kind enough to send a handwritten note to my address I totally did not expect such card and that was a great Customer Service/Branding on their part I have been to 2 other BLT Steak Houses other cities already but Miami was by far the best!!!

“Very Good Porterhouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

This was our second time around.

The first time was excellent all around: the porterhouse, the pop-overs, the chicken liver pate, the wine, the ambiance, the dessert, and the service. The noise level was quite high (the restaurant was packed).

This second time around it was very good. The pop-overs took forever to come out and when they did, they were overcooked. Also, the gnocchi was served with tomato sauce. They were still very fresh and "pillowy" but we prefer it better with the white sauce that it was served with the first time we ate there. Only these two things were negative (and not too negative at that). Everything else was very good. The porterhouse was cooked to perfect medium-rare. The asparagus were nicely grilled; and the chicken liver pate was better than the first time. Our wine glasses were never completely empty because our server was paying attention and topped them off whenever needed. Excellent and friendly service (not overly friendly but good).

Overall, very good experience and will definitely go back once we do another cycle of steakhouses that serve porterhouse in Miami.

You won't be disappointed!
Excellent in every way. Although we had to wait over an hour for our reservation, the service, food and atmosphere were outstanding.
