“Worst dining experience at the Ritz”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Maybe we came on an off night, but this was the worst restaurant during our week in Puerto Rico, and it is the worst steakhouse I've ever been to. For starters, the service was very lacking. They brought out a plate of liver pate mouse with crisp bread complements of the chef. Not appetizing at all. Then they brought out these two huge popovers which was their version of bread with a huge salt shaker. The popovers were nothing more than gigantic cream puff pastries, overdone on the outside and raw on the inside. I would much rather have normal bread. However, my husband loved them and the other reviewers seem to love them so I guess I must be missing something. Then came the awful oysters. We payed 26 dollars for 6 of the worst oysters I have ever had. They were advertised as East Coast oysters. When they came they were all different shapes, sizes and colors and the waiter explained they were a combination of east and west coast oysters. Regardless, the oysters had a very fishy taste and little pieces of the shell were breaking off into my mouth. For main course I had the large filet mignon medium rare with bernaise sauce and steak sauce. The filet was very fatty and crispy on the outside. The bernaise sauce was just ok and they forgot to bring the steak sauce. I had the creamed spinach side which was ok but very small portion. Skipped desert as everything up to this point was disappointing, including the wine. We did not go back to this restaurant.

“Not very good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

Not in sync at this restaurant. Steak cold, potato cold but good service. Extremely over priced for not very good food.

“BLT Is Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

My daughter and I are in PR to celebrate her 17th B-day. Today was the day and I made reservations for dinner letting them know it was the special occassion. We were greeted with warm enthusiasm and out table was a beatiful cluster of helium ballons. It didn't end there. Our server Christopher treated us royally throuout the meal which concluded with a beautiful fresh fruit and pastry
dish with a b-day greeting artfully written in chocolate. Our steak was scrumptious as were the sides of asparagus, fries and special for my daughter white rice. oh and the pop over bread is to die for. Thank you BLT for making a special day so memorable.
