Our dinner at LT was one of the best meals EVER. We were warmly greeted by the hostess and chose to sit outside. Our waiter, Michael, was wonderful! He answered all of our questions and suggested some items we would'nt have thought of. We took...his suggestions. We started with BY FAR the BEST spicy tuna roll ever, the calamari and the ceviche, outstanding!! My husband had the Caesar salad with chicken which was yummy. I took Michael's advice and ordered the bone in ribeye. Omg the ribeye was perfect. He supplied me with three samples of sauce and I was amazed the chimichurri was my favorite. The Brussel sprouts, spinach, and potato gratin were all phenomenal. We couldn't decide what we liked the most. Michael surprised us with three desserts, all of which were insanely delicious!! We ate past the point of physical comfort. Our only regret being we couldn't eat ALL of it. Kudos to Michael personally, who is a genius and thank you to LT for a very memorable dining experience!More

Had dinner at LT steak and Seafood last night! We loved it! You are served the most amazing savory popovers while you are looking at the menu! Ordered martinis that were perfectly prepared with shards of ice on top!! We shared the rock shrimp sushi...roll and thought it was delicious! We also had a shrimp cocktail, filet served with a great sauce and chimichurri, and loaded baked potato, we have been to Miami many times but this was our first at LT! We will definitely be back.

We were tired and weary from a long drive, so decided to dine within our hotel, The Betsy on South Beach. I'm really glad we did. For starters, we shared the Tiger Shrimp Cocktail and Soy Wasabi Ahi Tuna Tartare. Both very fresh and tasty....I thoroughly enjoyed the tartare with the 'kick' from the wasabi. For mains, we both had 8oz filet mignons with asparagus and the restaurant's steak sauce/sauce bearnaise. Both steaks cooked medium as requested, and to perfection. The asparagus was plump, fresh and tasty, especially with the buttery, Hollandaise sauce. Polished off a bottle of pinot noir and two Espresso martinis. We dined pretty late, but there were a fair few people that created a nice atmosphere of tourists and locals. Our server was very efficient, knowledgeable, polite and funny. Unfortunately, I cannot remember his name. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.More

I have no problem spending money on a quality experience. For the most part the food was good but not excellent. We had the 8 oz filet mignon. Not the best I’ve ever had! They charge $10 for 1 plain baked potato which I think...is outrageous for any restaurant!!! Our waiter was not attentive, never came over to ask if I wanted another glass of wine nor to ask how our food was. He took forever to bring our check over even after I had to get up and go request it from him. The restaurant was not crowded so there was no reason to take 20 minutes to get the check, pay and leave. They automatically add 20% gratuity to the guest check no matter how many people are in your party (we were only 2). That’s when I realized the waiter did not care about our dining experience because he was getting a big tip no matter what. $28.80 for doing a bad job in my opinion. I am trying to be kind here but I just feel like I wasted good money here.More

Pro’s - food was tasty, particularly the red snapper and also tuna tartare However, I’ve rarely experienced worse service. 1) Allergy tone deaf - Can you do entree 1 without this accompaniment? “The chef doesn’t like to make adjustments”. Can you remove the sauce on...entree two, which I’m allergic to? “I’ll put it on the side” (which he did) 2) Where’s our waiter? - food arrived but we had no silverware and had to go chase it down ourselves. Three requests to get water at the table. And for this experience, the tip is already included in the bill. The lack of aligned incentives for the wait staff might explain some things.More

I am shaking in disbelief typing this message. This morning was an amazing car that took place right in front of The Betsy and of course, the hotel has a beautiful terrace that you can sit on and enjoy. "Lucky" for me, I had reservations...already made at LT Steak and Seafood for breakfast as I previously had reservations before and I ENJOYED my dish. For some reason today was different. I was discriminated because of my skin color. I walked up to the hostess stand and ask to be seated as I had a reservation. The sever Rene was COMPLETELY disrespectful, didn't even look me in my eye, denied my reservation saying they were completely booked and no seating. May I add that there was literally THREE people sitting having breakfast. I kept showing Rene the reservation insisting that I get seated, he told me that I cannot sit anywhere and "don't know anything". What put the icing on the cake was him walking over to the front desk telling them "Call the security, this guy over here looks suspicious." I was blown, I had to take a look at my self for a second. What am I doing or wearing that can possibly be alarming... my skin color? Its the fact that I had to show them a picture of my self from my previous visit to the hotel eating to prove that I've been here before. Why do I need to show proof that I've eaten here before just to eat again..? Why does it matter? I asked another gentlemen if its okay that I sit in the lobby area and he seemed so confused on why I asked and ensured me that I can indeed sit where I please. I get to order drinks, pay for it in advance show them that I actually paid for my drinks after being asked multiple times. Lastly, they severed my breakfast in togo boxes... while everyone else (I was the only African American dining for breakfast) was severed properly. They finally bought out silverware for me to eat, while on the couch. Paid in cash and left. This was a very sensitive experience to me, very triggering as well. Will be bringing this experience to every social media platform. Please choose wisely when picking employees because they are the ones who provide the experience for your hotel.More

My review is in appreciation of our server last night, Gabriella! She was the best! It was very clear the restaurant/bar was understaffed and she was juggling it all beautifully. We were disappointed when we tried ordering sushi to be told there was no sushi...available followed by ordering the Wagyu and that was sold out. Gabriella was kind and helpful and made a potentially mediocre experience 5-stars.More
