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.

Nicely set within the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel, 1919 is one of the best restaurants in San Juan. The service, the atmosphere, the elegance all come together at this magnificent restaurant serving exquisite creations from Michelin Star-rated Executive Chef Juan José Cuevas. 

The restaurant perfectly blends fine dining with flavors of freshly sourced ingredients that could be sampled ala carte, as a degustation menu or even as a wine pairing menu.

Boasting an excellent wine list, you will be sure to have a memorable, thoroughly enjoyable dining experience at one of Puerto Rico’s finest gems.

1919 was expected to be one of the best dining experiences during our stay in beautiful Puerto Rico. The wait staff was excellent, but sadly for the price ($550.00) for two people enjoying the tasting menu plus wine pairing, the food was not exceptional, few items were good and most were not good.

Went here because I’m visiting San Juan and saw it on a list of top restaurants in the city. It’s located in a historic hotel which was already a plus upon arrival to the restaurant. Once in, they give you the red carpet treatment- addressing you by name and explaining with detail each plate upon delivery. They have several items with locally grown ingredients which made it feel like they support their community and made me feel good about being there.

Hi, Thank you so much for taking the time to highlight your experience at 1919! We are proud to be locally sourced, and we support local farmers. Fun fact: All of the eggs in the Condado Vanderbilt are local. (and no egg mix! fresh eggs only!). We truly hope see you again some time in the future.

Best dining experience I’ve ever had in my life. They spoke to me using my last name, extremely professional. All who attended us were experts. There was a person who explained the food, a person who explained the drinks, a person who brought samples to clear out pallets, a person for dessert. It was amazing. If you want to feel like royalty, an experience you see in movies, this is the place.

Had our anniversary dinner at 1919 and it was a spectacular experience. we arrived about 15 mins early to our reservation, but were seated right away. service was really attentive from the start but i have to say that our waiter (Ivan) was superb. he made the whole experience an unforgettable one. without asking, he brought a scarf for my wife when he noticed she was cold. was very courteous and attentive with our food restrictions, making sure every dish was according to planned before serving. food was great! we enjoyed every plate (the four course option). the restaurant was a bit noisy due to some guests in a nearby table. the view is spectacular, overlooking the ocean.
