Absolutely wonderful! The food here is so good; the room is beautiful; the service is excellent. Everything is perfect despite the shortages of many items in Puerto Rico due to the hurricane. The creativity of the chef is unequaled. So if you're lucky enough to be in San Juan, and enjoy fine food, just make this the place for dinner.

Amazing New years eve special dinner with family. The 1919 has that old money charm. The next door bar has nice quite music and variety of cocktails. Al the end of dinner manager gave us parting gift. Nice gesture.

Food was good
There are hidden fees when you do the Pre-fix menu that the waiter does not explain nor it’s explained in the menu. So we felt confused. The main waiter was condescending when asked about it. Otherwise service was good.

It was great! From appetizer to dessert! Great ingredients, unexpected combinations and perfect execution. And... leave room for the sweets. The pastry chef is a genius!
All this accompanied by unparalleled service. This is definitely the best restaurant in PR and one of the best in the US.

I went on Xmas Eve and the $100 menu per person was too expensive for what we got. It’s a very fine dining place but the food was not that impressive in relation to the cost. A 20% gratuity was included without asking.

We did a Chef's tasting menu, with a wine pairing with each course. Each wine was better then the next. One of the best dinning experiences I have had. Service was amazing and the servers tended to every need. 1919 is a can't missing if in San Juan. It is on par or better then any top rated restaurants in NYC.

Very good food. Not sure cost justified. Extremely tiny cup of coffee that seemed and tasted like espresso but asked for decaf. Asked for refill and ended up getting charged for 2 cups. Got that taken off bill. Some of price fixed options have upcharge. Tuna app did not but $5 was added to the bill for an upcharge so one should carefully check their bill. Salad portions small. Entree sizes good but fish of day entree small.

I cannot give enough praise to the staff, the management, the chef, the service, the ambience... everything was perfect! I came here with my girlfriend for a farewell to San Juan dinner and every dish I tasted brought me close to tears it was so good! Even the palate cleansers were delicious! We cannot stop raving about this place! Advanced warning, it is obviously on the pricey side, but do not let that deter you. Save some cash, dress in your best smart casual attire, and pay a visit to this restaurant. It is an experience worth every penny!

Two items were almost too salty to eat. Both of us are Chefs, the food was over salted. Service was very good but they seemed unorganized. You almost have too many servers on the floor. More efficiency would decrease the number of staff members.
It was a very nice upscale dining experience but I doubt I would go back.
