Incredible experience. Was solo dining and the staff was fantastic from start to finish. The lobster salad was a highlight, but the veal was phenomenal as well. Will have dreams of the bread pudding!

Amazing service. Willing to accommodate and work with you on anything to make your experience a special one. At the end we got a small parting gift (banana bread with pecan) as we were walking out. Will definitely come back.

Absolutely outstanding. My husband and I enjoyed one of the most delicious and relaxing meals of all time. Thank you to the chef, sommelier and servers who made it such a wonderful evening. And the banana bread to take home was over the top!

Amazing place. The only course that wasn’t stellar was my lentil soup. The rest was spectacular! And the service was great.

Where do I begin... this place was by far the best we experienced during our stay in Puerto Rico. The food and service are unmatched.

Although the vegan options weren’t plentiful they curated the most amazing dishes for us. What a way to kickoff my birthday celebration!

1919, in the Condado Vanderbilt, provides a dining experience equal to the finest restaurants in Europe. The 4 course dinner is a must. Each dish is better than the fabulous one before it. This is a leisurely dinning experience at its best.

I was disappointed after having been told extraordinary things about 1919. Is it good—generally so, outstanding, absolutely not. The room feels like a clubby lounge for old rich people and not enough light to read the menu... Maybe people look better, more interesting in this light but I,d like to see the food I m about to eat.
The wine paring—-the cheaper version of two—was very good but our server, would not call this individual a sommelier, after being asked the region of the Spanish wine we were tasting and unable to read the label in the bottle himself because there was not enough light in the room, passed the bottle to me to see if I could. I could not.
The lobster dish I chose for the first course was over-dressed with olive oil, the Dorado served in my third course, sitting over a bed of vegetables, was over-cooked and cold. The chocolate dessert, although tasting richly as it should, was so hard to cut, that pieces flew of the table. and the service, attempted to be pleasant, but felt like it could not not wait to leave the table. I have never seen people fill glasses of water so quickly and disappear.
If you have the money to splurge, go for it. Think twice.

Outstanding service from the moment we arrived. Was our wedding anniversary and the team there made the moment memorable. Waiter Ivan Collazo is the Bible of Service and with his support team the experience was memorable.

Food was delicious. Waiter was very nice but we never received the wine pairing, waited significant amount of time on a drink and didn’t receive one of our courses. For how expensive this restaurant is mistakes like that should not occur.

Do want to reiterate that the food we actually received was very good.

The food was impeccable. The service was anticipatory and operated with the slight of hand, never interrupting, just a seamless transition. The executive chef even came out so we could offer our praises in person. The best meal I have had in over a decade. Job well done! I will definitely be back.

It was a dream come true for Mom as it was he Birthday and the staff from 1919 was responsible for this unforgettable experience. Chef Cuevas came by our table to make sure we were having a spectacular moment. Special thanks to Agustin and IVan, they were excellent. By far 1919 is one of our favorite restaurants.

We were in PR on vacation staying next door at the Laconcha Renaissance. We walked by the Condado Vanderbilt hotel and checked it out. Our response was “OMG this is so much nicer than our hotel!” So we of course had to try their 1919 restaurant.

Elegant. Fine dining.

My wife and I started with the lobster sliders. Small, delicious little appetizers. My wife had the corn soup and I had a rigatoni pasta course. We then shared a veal entree. And for dessert we had their upside down cake.

Every single dish we would order again.

The wait staff and manager were very pleasant and made us feel welcome. They even gave us a complimentary banana bread with the 1919 label on it to take back to our hotel.

Talk about rubbing it in! Next time we stay at their hotel just so we are even closer to 1919!

It was our 21st wedding anniversary and birthday and the staff went all out for us.
Everything was cooked and seasoned to perfection. A High bar for a lot of other restaurants.
Who ever heard of a pre desert, then desert, followed by a post desert come on ; )

Every element of dinner at 1919 is performed to perfection. From the ingredients to the preparation to the presentation, every step is fr lawless. On top of the perfect meal, add the perfect service, efficient and unassuming, all geared to make you feel at home although you clearly know you're in heaven.
