Awesome food and service ... great ambiance
I recently visited this restaurant with a group of 10 girls for a bachelorette and it exceeded our expectations! The cocktails were amazing, food was delicious, and our waiter was lovely. The live music really topped the cake and made our experience all that more special. We also loved that Asere was right in the heart of La Placita, making it incredibly easy to walk to our next destination of the night. This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend (thank heavens!), and I will be sure to recommend this myself to family/friends who are planning to visit San Juan in the upcoming future!
Eric , our server was excellent!!
One of our favorite places!!
Food was delicious!!
Everything was great. Food, service (Lana) and ambiance. There was a trio that I thought was very good but it did increase the noise level.
Amazing food and service. Location is excellent for people watching and fun.
Great food and good music!
Fabulous! Food and service is excellent.
We wanted a local experience for our last night in San Juan and we were not disappointed! The food was great, service was outstanding, and the people watching from our outside table was perfect. I highly recommend Asere.
Fun and low key vibe with amazing food. My family are Cuban and the food surpassed our family recipes, which is impressive. I rarely find good Cuban food away from home. The restaurant is cozy enough to make you feel at home but with enough edge to ensure you feel like it’s a special night out. Service was relaxed and attentive. My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
Great restaurant! This little gem had fantastic food and service! One of our best meals while in Puerto Rico!
Absolutely loved Asere.
Excellent food. Lovely local feel. Service was really great.
This was in the middle of a jumping part of downtown Old San Juan so it was crazy noisy- music singing dancing everywhere
The food was the best we had the entire week- really special- we had whole red snapper fried and so beautiful! The cocktails were expertly done- has to have a mojito! Highly recommend - but understand the area is crowded and hard to get an Uber right to restaurant- you have to get out and walk a bit- which is fun.
Service was great, food was amazing, the only thing I would say is that food took too long but our waiter made sure we had drinks and appetizers while we waited. Overall a great place.
Drinks were good
Food little bit salty
Food was not good. Really underwhelming. It used to be good not sure what happened!?
Be prepared for a very loud and cramped dinner. A lot of fun but the band is right on top of you and they are not quiet.
The restaurant is right in the heart of La Bacita and there is a lot of nightlife, one big street party.
Just be prepared otherwise we had a great time.
Called prior to confirm vegan options on the menu (beans and rice, salad, eggplant dish)
... we weren’t throughly impressed however the energy and location were both vibrant!
Great food. Good service. Convenient location. Indoor and outdoor seating
We love Asere. We always sit outside so we can enjoy the live music coming from other venues around the Square, as well as indulge in some people watching. The food is great, service is generally fantastic. Favs include the warm bean dip, empanadillas, pork belly tacos and pretty much everything else on the menu!
I ordered the Lavanda cocktail and it’s refreshing and strong at the same time. It’s really good! The empanadas, and spring rolls for appetizers and they were EXCELLENT!! Dinner the salmon and it was crispy on the outside and very tasty! Loved it! The best dessert is the crème brûlèe!
Excellent food... awesome service!
Food was great, service was wonderful, we enjoyed our meal so much. I would go back if I am in the area
Excellent empanadas and Vaca fritas. We enjoy our food each and every time we visit.
We had such a great night thanks to our wonderful server,Erik. He took the time to explain everything in the menu and gave us great advice. The food was absolutely delicious and all the seafood plates were super fresh . We left full and very happy !
Our waitress was great we let her take the wheel on drinks and food and she directed us to some delicious apps, entrees portions are pretty big and drinks are strong HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FOR DINNER+DRINKS
We went there to enjoy lobster and mussels but at 7pm they were out of several dishes on the menu including these two items. We ended up ordering beef and salmon because it was late and we did not want to drive to a different restaurant. What a disappointment
Awesome restaurant! Must try the rope vieja and the best mamposteo I've had while in Puerto Rico! Finished dinner with the tres leche which is absolutely to die for!!
Great food!! Great area!! Love the outdoor street seating!! Food was A1!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️service was perfect!!..
Wonderful, friendly service and incredibly unique atmosphere!
Right in the heart of La Placita, this is the place to be for a fun evening. The live music from next door was the perfect volume, the food was great, and the vibe was energetic. We went back again for the Empanadillas they were so good!
I had made a reservation at Asere for 9 people on a Friday evening. Upon our arrival, the host greeted our group and told us that they had a table set up already. She guided us to the second level of the restaurant and to my surprise, she wanted to seat our group on 2 small sofas with a small round table. I explained to the host that this was obviously not what I was expecting as I assumed we were going to be seated at a regular table. She insisted that they could serve food in this area, but I told her this was unacceptable. She then explained to me that all tables were taken and she left. I stood there trying to figure out what to do on a busy Friday night because I knew it wouldn’t be easy to accommodate 9 people at any restaurant in San Juan. I went downstairs and told her to cancel the reservation because this was unacceptable and all she said was “okay, bye”. The host could care less and was very rude, which was a huge loss for the restaurant as we were going to spend quite a bit that evening. The location of this restaurant is in such a crowded area of San Juan and the restaurant is very claustrophobic. Would NOT recommend to anyone looking for a place to dine in San Juan. We ended up at Metropol in the Sheraton Convention Center and the service and food were AMAZING! Go there instead of this place because you won’t regret it!
Not sure what anyone would sees in this restaurant. Service was terrible, food was at best ok, and the noise level high. The waiter didn’t understand us, and I spoke Spanish to him. A ‘one and done’ place for sure!
Great food and service
Great service to begin with. Very very nice server. We went early 7:30 and he just got buried as it got busy
I love this place, but it's very loud, even by PR standards, and the valet parking is good but VERY slow at times. The food is excellent and the bartenders are fabulous!
Food was excellent and service as well I definitely recommend this place also amazing drinks
