    Very disappointed to not know beforehand that they only offer a tasting menu for 165/pp for 4 courses. When we spoke to the restaurant mgr and shared how we didn’t know, it’s not on their website or on open table, he was rude and dismissed us.

    We had an exceptional time at 1919 celebrating my wife’s birthday! The entire staff was charming, knowledgeable, and created a memorable experience for us. We at no point felt rushed but also felt well taken care of throughout our evening. We really look forward to recommending 1919 to our friends visiting the San Juan area, as we’re confident that this experience is something the staff is able to repeat on a nightly basis. Their professionalism and attention to detail - along with the superb menu and wine pairings - simply cannot be beat.

    We came to 1919 to celebrate a birthday and it was the most delightful experience! The service was exceptional, thanks to William and Joshua, and the food was memorable. The four course menu was perfect and we enjoyed the crudo, truffle gnocchi, duck, prime steak and brioche pudding, amongst others. If you want an amazing dining experience with impeccable service, go to 1919!

    Wonderful dining experience! Perfect place to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Food was perfection and the service was exceptional. Every single one of the waiters/waitresses were amazing. Every course came out in a timely manner, though we never felt rushed. We did ask if they could hold our dessert, so we could make room, since the portions are small, but filling. They were wonderful about it and just told us to let them know whenever we were ready. They were also kind enough to bring out a sweet treat for my husband for his birthday. Would definitely want to go back and highly recommend!

    Fantastic! Booked to start my honeymoon and from the minute we arrived until the minute we left the staff was phenomenal! The entire staff expressed congratulations and Jose, Jenalie and Angel catered to our preferences, guided us through the menu (we did the 7 course chef) and answered our silly questions! As we began the courses the food was delicious. An ample serving for each course, the food was cooked perfectly and very well seasoned that represented Puerto Rico in a modern, uniquely extravagant way! We have dined at other Michelin rated restaurants and this BY FAR exceeded our expectations. By the time we got through the final course we were full and our glasses were empty (wine by the glass based on recommendation). As we wrapped up the staff helped us celebrate with some champagne and dessert! Jose was even waiting at the host stand with fresh banana bread for the morning and to see us off! I cannot thank the staff and the chef enough for a most memorable and tasty experience!

    If you want to get hit in the head with price, go to 1919. I can see pre-fix, but pre-fix with 75% of the menu items with a surcharge!!! Ridiculous. The lobster salad was as much lobster that could fit into a thimble. And a surcharge!!!! Service was excellent and first class. The hotel is magnificent, but then again, it is a Vanderbilt.

    We had the most incredible dinner at 1919. We were celebrating my niece’s graduation. Of course the food is delicious (we’ll get to!) but the staff there is amazing. They made us feel at home, explained everything and went above and beyond. It’s a tasting menu and we all ordered different things to try as much as we could. To start the crudos were beautiful and fresh. The second course-primarily pastas were prepared perfectly -Al dente, and we especially loved the rigatoni and the pastas with truffles. The main course we selected the boneless pork and branzino which were beyond. Delicious and amazing. And the dessert. Omg -go just for the brioche pudding. I am still dreaming of it. Shout out to William, Joshua, Emanuel and Paola who took incredible care of us. The food is amazing and the service made it the most memorable evening. Love 1919!!

    Service - Wonderful Place - Beautiful with romantic setting Food - The dishes were beautifully presented. The food itself was good but really does not stand out. Felt way overpriced. They offer a pre-fixed menu at $169 p/p however, this only covers a few select items. The rest of the menu requires a supplemental charge. I chose gnochetti as second and Scallops as main and it was just a bit underdone which seems to be an issue from other reviewers. An experience for me but not sure I would visit again.

    We always love our time at 1919 when we visit PR (from NYC). This time was to celebrate our marriage and Jorge and Eduardo were lovely! The hostess too and our other server whose name I’m regretfully forgetting. Really appreciate how the menu changes so it’s a new experience each time. Always keep the truffles! :)

    Wildly expensive for mediocre food and a subpar experience. Do not hand me an iPad to look at the wine list it’s tacky. Bread was great and bread pudding was great. The other dishes were either under flavored or undercooked except for my duck which was rubbery and overly salty. The dinner for 2 people with a bottle of wine and tip was 600$ which was about 350$ too much.

    We had an amazing meal to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The food was fabulous and probably the best collection of dishes ever. Wesley was our server and made everything perfect as he always does. We have dined at many wonderful restaurants around the world, and 1919 is as good, if not better, than all of them.

    We truly enjoyed and savored every sip and bite. The subdued lighting and comfortable seating set us at ease - serving as the appropriate stage for the palette pleasing parade we experienced…Chayote, crudo, spaghetti, ravioli, vino, brioche pudding (to name a few)…an incredible culinary adventure. While the food and drink were amazing, the team that tended to us made the evening the special experience it was- sorry if we did not remember or misspelled, but Jose Carlos, Jonalie, Jorge, the hostess and other supporting staff really brought the occasion to another level with attention, knowledge, kindness and beautiful humanity… Thank you all!!

    This is truly a Michelin star restaurant. Food is divine and service is outstanding. The whole crew is synchronized and don’t miss a thing to make your experience remarkable. Pricing has been adjusted way ahead of inflation but I guess people are willing to pay for it.

    Life is short and my one piece of advice is to go to 1919. Take yourself to another planet with the chefs menu. Thank you to the entire staff and team at 1919. The experience was otherworldly. From the moment we arrived we were immediately seated at a beautiful table by the wine cellar. We were instantly greeted, and given options of menus and wine parinings; All of which were described in detail. We opted for the most extravagant life experience of the chefs menu, with wine pairing for my husband and mock tail pairing for myself. A moktail menu that was explained to us as a drink that will mimic the taste of some of the wines your partner will experience- it felt like a together journey. I’ve had a very difficult time in the past finding restaurants that understand the importance of mocktails (for pregnancies or otherwise). This really made us feel at home that 1919 just “got it” and this theme was carried out time and time again. Each dish, wine, mocktail was delivered in uniform fashion, with a detailed explanation and by the entire team of staff. The chefs menu was loosely described as 10 courses but between the added bonuses and palette cleanses it could have easily been 13/14. Needless to say we left extremely full but in awe. A few of our “cannot live without” Branzino and mushrooms Carne asada (I think?) dish Truffle homemade linguine Salmon and mussel dish in vegetable broth It was all truly indescribable. We will never ever forget one of the most memorable nights of our lives with some of the best people and service we’ve ever met. This experience is expensive. Let me make that very clear. I would never question the cost per the service that was delivered for my husbands birthday. Thank you again to the chef and the sous chef (who did greet us) and the entire team. Special shout out to Josè Carlos, Jonalie and Jorge for an unforgettable night. We cannot wait to indulge in the take home banana bread!! Love to you all!

    The food at 1919 was excellent. But please be aware of their dress code. We were not (our fault for not checking). The men in our large party were seated in the bar, because they were wearing dress shorts and collared shirts, but not long pants per the dress code. The women in our party were in dresses, so we were allowed to stay in the main restaurant. While we enjoyed our meal, this did make for a weird experience, and since the restaurant is in a beach area, it never occurred to us that the men would need to be in long pants.
