Amazing restaurant! Service was spectacular. William and Georgi were very kind and had great recommendations. We had the prix fixe menu. Heirloom tomato salad and lobster salad were fresh and delicious. Soft shell crab is to die for. The rib eye and swordfish seals the deal. We will be back!

My wife and I decided to have our anniversary dinner at 1919 and it was an excellent choice. The decor and ambiance were fantastic and the food was delicious. However, the best part of the experience was the impeccable service that we received. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted and treated with the utmost courtesy and hospitality.

All the staff was very professional and responsive, but we were primarily served by William and Jorge. I cannot say enough good things about them. Simply put, the service they provided was exceptional. These two deserve to be recognized by their leadership for their phenomenal work.

Without reservation, I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an upscale dining experience while in San Juan. And if my wife and I are in San Juan again, we will be certain to dine here once more (and we hope that William and Jorge will be our servers again).

This restaurant is the reason I don't like giving places 5 stars. THIS is the 5 star experience. In fact, after 55 years of fine dining on 3 continents, this may very well take first place. Truly fabulous in every way. Well done.

While we found the cuisine to be well prepared and in good standing, the portions were minuscule. We also found the menu to be restrictive, asking for “add on dollars” for many of the selections. In the end the value of our experience left much to be desired. We would not return under these pretenses nor recommend this establishment to others.

My husband and I were in Puerto Rico celebrating my birthday and our anniversary, which are four days apart. We booked a celebratory dinner at 1919 for our last evening and cannot stop talking about our experience! The hotel and gorgeous views frame the restaurant so well and hint at the luxury of the dining experience at 1919. Our server, William, was so warm and welcoming, gave flawless recommendations, and handled our table with grace and deft. He was honestly so memorable. Judy recommended great drinks and wines and kept our glasses full, she was also so kind and attentive. Our food was truly spectacular. Every dish was perfectly plated, creative, well-balanced, and DElicious. The spicy tomato sorbet on my husband’s heirloom salad was ingenious, and my summer corn soup with mushrooms, truffle, and gnocchi — just bury me in a vat of that soup. The restaurant sent out a complementary dessert for my birthday, in addition to the two we ordered. On the car ride back to our Airbnb, my husband and I both said we would come back to the island simply to dine at 1919. Highly recommend!

One of the best dining experiences I have had. Best restaurant in Puerto Rico. The level of service and attention to detail is unrivaled. Wesley was an excellent guide along this delightful culinary journey. Didn't know what to expect with a prix fixe menu, but I could not recommend it enough. Trust in the chef and the wine pairings; you will not be disappointed.

Superb service throughout. William & Joshua were fantastic. Each course got better and better. All dishes had a taste of local flare fused with every bite. Followed by a table side photo with Chef Jose!!! Chef is truly a rockstar. Couldn’t have asked for anything better to eat. Just when you don’t think it can get better, the wine pairing elevated the meal even farther.
Many thanks for a fabulous dijing experience

1919 was amazing. The back server and the main chief server were both amazing and very well trained. Was celebrating my girlfriends birthday and they did everything to make the experience enjoyable. Little pricey but definitely worth it. For sure will visit again when I’m back in Puerto Rico.

I have been to many high end restaurants and have experienced many prix fixe menus, but this was definitely one of the best experiences I have had. Between the 3 of us that were there, we were all able to taste 12 different dishes and each one was absolutely amazing. We included the wine pairing which made the experience even more delectable. The wait staff was top notch, the ambiance hit perfection. The experience alone at 1919 makes a trip to Puerto Rico well worth it!

William and his team worked with my partner and myself to select the most fantastic 4 course meal in recent memory (maybe of our lives but who can really claim that at 58 and 26 respectively). I had heirloom tomato salad, truffle corn soup and incredible roasted pork, while my partner enjoyed lobster salad, soft shell crab and a local grilled fish. Everything was genuinely 5 star and the epitome of fine dining. For drinks I savored a rich Pinot Noir (just what the doctor ordered) while my young partner sampled mixed drinks from a mojito, a rosemary infusion and a delectable pina colada. The service from William and his team matched the authentically tasty menu selections. It was a very pricey evening worth every penny! We will be back!!!

The ambient was fantastic for a couple in romance, it was very dark to my taste, of Corse I was alone.
The food apart from the main course that was very very salty, (lamb) it was incredible, the details to the entire menu was fantastic. Had a few drinks before dinner in the bar outside of the restaurant, that was awesome but the stools are very short it made it difficult to admire the great scenery out the windows, that was a shame. The service was awesome.

I was going to write a great review but after reading the prior reviews, all I can say is ditto. This was one of the best meals I've eaten. The taste and the service were excellent. The bar has the best variety of top shelf liquor. I can't wait to go back.

The service, ambiance and food were all incredible. Expensive, but worth it for a fab night out. The perfect way to close out vacation, with lots of yummy food and wine. The waiters were so attentive, always anticipating our every need. The corn and gnocchi soup and burrata tomato salad were to die for.

Our experience at 1919 was excellent. Eugenio and Raul were excellent waiters. Eugenio was extremely knowledgeable about the various wine pairings for our dishes. Also, each course was incredible. The secreto iberico was one of our personal favorites. We came for an anniversary dinner, and they were very hospitable. They also gave us a special dessert.
