Diner Reviews
  • "Went to Marmalade for our 20th wedding anniversary. They sat us at a lovely corner table spread with rose petals. The food was superb and the service was on point. The head chef came to our table and took his time speaking to us. We could tell his passion for food and great service is top priority. The popcorn shrimp and white bean soup were out of this world. We really enjoyed ourselves. Do yourself a favor and go here!"

  • "Outstanding creative menu, fantastic service, great ambiance. Took my wife for her birthday. When I confirmed our reservation I was asked if we were celebrating an occasion, so I told them it was for a birthday. When we arrived we had an amazing table with rose petals all over it. My wife was wished happy birthday by the hostess, 3 different waiters, and the chef who came to our table to ask us how our meal was going, a very nice touch. Food is a subjective thing and I couldn't find fault with any of the dishes that we tried,everything was of high quality, preparation and presentation were top notch. Your going to spend a few bucks but it is well worth the experience."

  • "1. food is bursting with flavors, I literally almost licked my plate clean. 2. service is over the top. the staff made every effort to obtain soy milk for an after dinner tea (I have severe lactose intolerance). Thanks. 3. the decor is another superlative: sensory overload warning: overdone and flambuoyant. I know it is a matter of visual taste. But 1 and 2 are excellent reasons for a restaurant's being and a 5 star rating."

  • "Black tie dining experience, without the attire. Inspiring and creative menu, with excellent wine pairing selections. The wait staff is superb in their knowledge and service, and executive Chef Peter Schindler personally takes the time to check on your culinary experience. The birthday guest on our table was gluten intolerant and their awareness of both, special occasion and dietary needs, was magnificent. Excellent presentation and timing between courses. You will never regret this unforgettable experience."

  • "Marmalade is a restaurant that would be outstanding anywhere in the world. With an amazingly creative organic-focused menu, everything from the dishes themselves to the drinks to the extraordinary decor (done in 1920's Salon Style of comfort) to the incredibly attentive and focused expert staff was amazing. There is nothing more that can be said other than we would urge everyone to experience it. It is an excellent and unusual dining experience the equal of any anywhere in the world."

  • "I took my travel companion for dinner here while in Puerto Rico. We have both travelled extensively, he has a list of restaurants he visits in NY and I carefully follow the food scene in Portland and we both agree that Marmalade was the best dining experience we've ever had. We both had the much lauded 'tiny white bean soup' which lived up to the hype easily. We did the 5 course tasting with wine pairings and the servings were appropriate so we did not end up feeling that we ate too much. I had the pork cheeks as my main course and he hD the halibut and both dishes were surprising, complexly payed and beautifully presented. I will travel to Puerto Rico for this restaurant again and bring friends!"

  • "We came here for a nice meal on our honeymoon, and were extremely satisfied. We put in our open table why we were going (not calling ahead explicitly) and they had a nice quiet table set out in a more romantic corner with flower petals for the occasion. For food, we each had the four course sampler with wine pairings, and every single item that came out was simply mouth watering. Easily the star of the night (even given that all items were stellar) was the sea bass with coconut emulsion. I'm still not sure how that many flavors were packed in there. Our server was also absolutely wonderful and we never had to wait long for the next course (unless we asked for a few minutes to savor the last dish). Easily one of the best meals I've ever had."

  • "We were on vacation and were told from friends who had been here before that we HAD to eat here, they said they would fly back to PR just to eat at Marmalade again. We went with the 5 course tasting with wine pairing, it was outstanding. We got to each choose our own 4 courses (the 3rd course has to be the signature white bean soup, no complaint with that). Some highlights were the soup of course, the popcorn shrimp, the foie gras was incredible, and the pork cheek entree was splendid. We had the butterscotch bread pudding and caramel corn creme brulee for dessert, both were super tasty, though we were so full by that point that we only really nibbled on them. Absolutely worth the money spent and would recommend going there to anyone."

  • "This dining experience was truly unique - from the atmosphere to the food it was all one of a kind. The 4,5, or 6 course ordering options are definitely the way to go. I chose to have 4 plates and felt that I'd had enough to eat. It was very pricey but worth it if you want to splurge on a great evening."

  • "My boyfriend & I went all out, each ordering the 5 course meal. We had the tiny white bean soup, ceviche, popcorn shrimp, lobster risotto, gnocci, & the black truffle pappardelle for appetizers. Everything was insanely good, w/ the exception of the lobster risotto which I found to be only ok; however, my bf loved it. For my main, I chose the monkfish & my bf chose the salmon special. I really enjoyed the monkfish but I didn't care for the salmon. To me, it lacked any salmon flavor. My bf said he really liked it. For dessert, we got the special blueberry crisp w/ boozy ice cream & the carrot cake. The ice cream had an overwhelming booze flavor but the crisp itself was lovely. We didn't try the carrot cake until the next am - not our taste."

  • "Nice restaurant in charming Old San Juan. Ambience and service were stellar. We did the chef tasting menu and the pasta appetizer and white bean soup were incredible!!!!!!! One of the best soups I have EVER had. The entree (sea bass) was mediocre (my husband had the organic chicken which was good but not great). The ice cream special that night was some sort of vanilla with brandy and truffle oil (it was NOT the well known millionaire's ice cream that is on the regular menu). Anyway, ice cream and truffle oil tastes like a basketball player's feet with cologne sprayed on them (I would imagine, I don't have any ACTUAL experience with this....) Still a cool place with great service. Will go back and try different entrees and desserts!!"

  • "I consider myself a foodie and love to treat myself to nice meals in NYC and I have to say that the experience I had at Marmalade rivaled the TOP restaurants in NYC. The food was fantastic, the server was beyond knowledgeable and helpful and would recommend to anyone going down to PR to not miss Marmalade."

  • "One of the best restaurants on this island! The tiny white bean soup is delicious, a must have! My mouth starts to water just thinking about it! The sea bass is also wonderful. We have tasted most of the appetizers and they are all very good. The Chef/owner comes to the table to see how your experience is, which is such a nice personal touch. I visit the island a few times a year and we must always come here! The decorations and restaurant set up is absolutely beautiful!! You must try this restautant, you will be glad you did!"

  • "Great food and includes a vegetarian tasting menu. The best place i ate in Puerto Rico while staying in Old San Juan. It does feel like a New york restaurant, so not the choice if looking for a more local feel. THe food and service was amazing and the staff and Chef very passionate and proud of the food. Will make sure to go back each time I visit San Juan."

  • "My wife and I experienced Marmalade while on a vacation in PR. We discovered it reading through their incredible reviews on OT. Although we eat out a lot, and I mean a lot we don't consider ourselves foodies. Knowing about their highly suggested tasting menu this was going to be our chance to step outside our comfort zone and experiment with foodie type foods. Our experience started with Chef/Owner Peter Schindler spending time enthusiastically explaining the highlights from his menu. We shared 5 dishes, one better than the next, and finished up with the cant miss Caramel Corn Crème Brûlée. My suggestion, there's too many items you cant afford to miss out on so get the tasting menu and order what you like. You'll be pleasantly surprised!"

  • "Our second time at marmalade was even better than the first. We ordered the 4 course tasting and both had the Jimmy Hendrix to drink (a must try). Apps: both had ceviche, delicious. Intermediate: I had the gnocchi with short ribs- delicious and she had black pepper pappardelle which was also delicious. The chef knew we were repeat customers and sent out the awesome white bean soup for us. Entrees: I had the pork cheeks which is delicious and she had the sea bass which she said was some ofbthe best she has had. Waiter then sent out two dessert drinks (frangelica) before our desserts. We both ordered the bread pudding which we took home with us because we were stuffed. The 4 course is plenty. We will be back for sure."

  • "It was very pleasant to discover the refined tasting menu at Marmalade after few meals in Puerto Rico- a true "fried food" Mecca. The service was friendly and attentive from the table strewed with rose petals ( we were celebrating an anniversary) to the explanations given with every dish to the stop by the chef to chat. The bean soup is a delight ( it is their signature dish and the recipe is offered spontaneously). The beef tenderloin and sea bass entrees were both fork tender."

  • "Everything we ate was phenomenal. We did the 4 course tasting and each course was outstanding. The snapper ceviche with tostones was delicious, as was the Maine lobster risotto and the "popcorn" shrimp. The food was creative - the popcorn shrimp was grilled shrimp on ancho flavored popcorn. One of the people in our group has numerous food allergies and she could eat off of the menu due to the large selection of gluten and dairy-free foods, and the entire page of vegan foods. So, this restaurant is good for everyone. The wait staff are extremely knowledgeable about everything on the menu and the chef walks around the restaurant and talks to everyone so is very available. This restaurant alone is worth a trip to San Juan."

  • "Marmalade far exceeded my high expectations and will be an 'automatic' in future visits to SJ. The service was professional yet personable, the food was presented wonderfully, and it was delicious (!): portions were properly sized and delectable, and the wine pairings were unerring. No drawbacks!"

  • "This restaurant looked fabulous for vegetarians and I was excited to go. What a disappointment! The food was presented beautifully but that's where it ended. Both my dining partner and I found our meals to be bland and not at all exciting. The server was overly (annoyingly so) enthusiastic in her descriptions of the menu. What was most alarming was the bill. We were way overcharged. When we brought it to her attention there was no apology. She brought us a new tab, but when we got back and checked our accounts we were both still overcharged on our cards. We called and there was again, little apology. We later received an email inviting us back for a free drink and tapas but had zero desire to go back! Beware! It seemed like a scam!"

  • "I chose Marmalade to celebrate my birthday with a group of girlfriends and it was a really nice restuarant. Perfect ambience for a sexy evening in Puerto Rico, which is what I was seeking. The food was amazing. I did have the tasting menu and it's pricey, but worth it. Especially for a special occasion. I'm not used to dropping over a hundred bucks on just myself for dinner, but you only live once! We requested that the chef come out when he had a moment to meet me and he actually did come over to our table and talked for a moment, took pictures with me and a few of my friends and of course I bragged on everything I'd eaten. Peter was very nice and he's a master when it comes to food. Glad we came and would love to come again."

  • "I brought a group of 6 friends specifically to Marmalade from Tampa for dinner. The chef, Peter, met with us personally and specifcally picked our wine pairings and seemingly endless courses of some of the best food ever tasted! It was an absolutely epic dinner lasting several hours that we will never forget. The food, wine and service are all 5 star. I will fly in to eat at Marmelade many times in the futre. Absolutely amazing."

We had the tiny white bean soup, jamon iberico and foie gras to start and for second course homemade gnocchi for her and Grass Fed Natural Hormone-Free Beef Tenderloin for me. Not enough characters here to express how good everything was and the high quality in every detail."
