This place is outstanding! The service, attention to detail, food quality, decor, ambiance! We all tried the four course prix fixe choice. And your bread plate is never empty!! Will definitely come back when in town!

I feel I did not get my money worth.
1. The buffet did not have all the food i would expect for a $89.00 per person cost. Texas d Brazil and other Buffet high end restaurants serve more for less than $89.00.
2. I had to call the waiter many times to get served.
3. I was imposed a 20% tip or $120.00. (plus see number 2 above).

We asked for the price fixed menu . Each of the 4 dishes included was exceptional including the desserts . The wine tasting was also very good as was the service . The amuse bouche and the petit fours were not that good but those are minor things . In general you could say that this is the best restaurant in Puerto Rico . Expensive but worthwhile .

This is a beautiful restaurant with outstanding service and food. They offer a course price fixe selection but you can order ala Carte off the same menu.’the beet salad and lobster salad are delicious. I enjoyed the Dorade.. it was mild and delicious fish.
The service is outstanding... don't miss the bread pudding! Superb...

This restaurant is superb. Our server Wesley, and Luis made it all amazing. The food started a bit slow but once we spoke to Wesley it all changed. Food can at times be adventurous and the wine pairings once this happened were superb.

I highly recommend the restaurant for discerning guests of the Condado Vanderbilt, as well as people in the area looking for the melding of atmosphere, top quality service, and beautiful food.

Delightful setting in the Vanderbilt hotel. Elegant enough to allow for a formal dinner, but not stuffy, and relaxed enough for a family with well behaved young children to dine in jeans and a polo shirt. Service was impeccable with extreme attention to detail and a flow that was seem-less, without any awkward moments of lack of food, service, beverage refill, answers to our questions etc. One of the best meals we had over our week of nightly dining out out very nice restaurants in PR.

HIT and MISS

Last night we dined at 1919 for my wife's birthday. It was noted in my reservation. We were on time and promptly shown to our table. the table was in front of the wine cellar which is not really part of the restaurant rather in an alley way. MISS. I did not make a scene cause it was MKs birthday and she hates if I make a fuss. At the restaurant it may be a Puerto Rico thing but I felt like the waiters etc. spoke to me almost at times as if my wife was not with me. MISS. We did the price fix meal at $95 with the wine pairing at $70. Not cheap but worth it. It was not exceptionally busy but it did take a rather long time to get to the food. I will say the we loved the sommelier, he was fantastic. All wine pairings were spot on for the four course meal. HIT

We had the crudo which was awesome, maybe best ever. Hit! Then we had Shrimp risotto and Lobster cavatelli which were absolutely amazing. HIT . BUT we waited nearly 30 minutes between the first course and second HIGE MISS. After asking the waiter what happened it was taken care of. BUT a second glass of wine and the shine on dinner went out the door. Third course was Tuna and duck which were both cooked perfectly and presented well. HIT. Fourth course was chocolate mousse which was really good and presented really well. HUGE HIT with a 20 year tawny port.

All of this was followed by a birthday dish of treats and a fresh glass of champagne. HUGE HIT.

Recommendation: I would go again but I would expect the service to be better. The food and wine were literally a 5 out of 5 . You should try it. It was worth it.
