Outstanding. One of the best meals I’ve had- ever and comparable to some of the best restaurants in the country in Yountville, Napa and NY. Food was outstanding, service was impeccable - highly polished and professional. Compliments to the chef and all the staff. I can’t wait to return!

Super elegant, premium experience. Terrific food. And, on the way out, they gave me a homemade banana nut bread, which was perfect, because I had an early flight the next morning, before my hotel's breakfast was being served. Definitely a place for a special occasion.

Service was subpar. Late on every wine pairing with very little thought as to what to pair. One course was inedible because of too much salt. Seared tuna was over cooked and mussels accompanying were bad. Overall for a $400 dining experience a lot was missing. Hopefully we just got lost in the busy night and this isn’t a true representation of 1919.

Elegant and relaxing. We were in San a juan for a conference at another hotel The Vanderbilt was a peaceful oasis after the noise of the convention. The food was superb. We had the three course dinner which was also a great value. The service from all the staff was perfect. Attentive but not intrusive. We loved the ambiance which was elegant and luxurious. The view was also incredible. I am a Puerto Rico resident and this is now one of my favorite restaurants in San Juan.

Way too over priced for the quality and portion of food. Waiter was condescending when we asked for a different wine and felt the need to emphasis the price before serving it to us. Won’t recommend this place to friends and family even if they’re staying at the Vanderbuilt. If you want better food and more for your money go upstairs to OLA.

Food is passable at best. Flavors are undefined or unbalanced, often over spiced. Portions are ridiculously small. That kind of size/price ratio could only be justified by exceptional flavors and platting, which are both amiss. Service is over friendly and not proper and poised as it should be, for the level this restaurant intends to portray.

Each course of my meal was beautifully prepared and served. 1919 is a refined space serving refined foods above the beach. The service was constantly attentive without being in anyway intrusive. Each course was an individual delight, although the tuna tartar was a standout.

We had the most wonderful dinner here for a birthday celebration while on vacation. I gave the service four stars only because I had made a request upon making my reservation that two glasses of champagne be waiting at the table for a little birthday toast, but that did not happen.

With that being said, the service we received from William was absolutely wonderful! Attentive, informative, kind, yet still unobtrusive. William was great, even providing some recommendations for other things to do and personally escorting my boyfriend to see the cigar lounge where we headed after dinner. After our amazing three course meal we were sent off with some delicious blueberry bread for the next morning.

I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Make it a point to go if you are in town and desiring an upscale experience.

We are frequent at 1919.
Overall was good and food as always was great, but service was not up to the 1919 standard. Seems like they did not have enough personel to serve a packed restaurant. service quality can not be lowered due to a packed restaurant. Small detail, but post dessert was not served. Service at some point was rushed.

Food awful and service very slow. It's a joke that the hotel staff mentioned that the chef worked at a 2 Star Michelin restaurant. 1919 doesn't know what a Michelin restaurant is!!!

Very expensive for the poor food and service!

My family are foodies and have visited 3 star restaurants in Paris and around the world 1919 has a long way to go!

I will NOT recommend this restaurant to my friends and family!
