    We had the pleasure of celebrating Valentine’s Day at Cocina Abierta and enjoyed an excellent six Act meal with wine pairing. Mimina our guide during the dinner was phenomenal. Will definitely make it a spot to come to every time I return to Puerto Rico. Thank you…my taste buds are still dancing!!!

    Loved our 5 course tasting experience! Every course was a nuanced explosion of flavors. They were able to accommodate my lactose intolerance and suggest wine to go with the meat courses. They even started us off with an amuse bouche course and ended with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine, since we were there celebrating our wedding anniversary. It was a great ending to our vacation in Puerto Rico.

    Ive been coming to Cocina Abierta for months now and it has been one of my prefered places to recomend. But over the last year it has continued to change leaning more away from the menu options that i liked to ones that i despise. The beef Wellington and the Duck were always my favorites yet both are now gone. The new menu no longer allows choices in each section but rather a choice of vegetarian or meat based. Then every course is preselected. Disappointing to say the least.

    Cocina Abierta made my husband love foods he thought he didn’t like, and both of us try things we might never have chosen, but loved. Everything was amazingly delicious; the staff were friendly and helpful and accommodated a request to avoid an ingredient flawlessly and with grace. The staff took the time to tell us about what we were eating and drinking, share suggestions, and bring an extra drink to help us celebrate a special occasion. It’ll be our ambition to come back and recommend this place to anyone we know who has the chance to experience it - wonderful. Thank you for a great evening.

    Excellent service and great food! I love the variety and although they were mainly set meals, there were a couple options. I might have preferred having the option to mix and match, but I was happy with our courses. The staff were attentive to our needs and very friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend it for a special occasion.

    The website is very well done, but the place and the experience you imagine reading it is completely different from reality. Very noisy place, I reserved a table in the terrace but it end up that the terrace was at the entrance of a parking lot from one side and the parking on the other side…so this was the view. We changed and we went inside. Very noisy, only one of the 4 waitresses that assisted us was able to explained the dishes and be understood. Food was very solty. Overall overpriced for what it was. I wouldn’t recommend it at all. I would hire the storyteller that made the website instead

    Amazing food and service. By the end of the meal, my wife and I were absolutely STUFFED. The outdoor seating is fairly close to the road/traffic, so it was a bit loud. There was also some unsightly trash depositories in eyeshot, so I would recommend eating indoors. Very $$$ so go for a special occasion. The flavors were out of this world and their treatment of the ingredients was masterful. Highly recommend!

    We truly enjoyed the omnivore tasting menu and wine pairings. The food was delicious, expertly prepared, and they were able to accommodate our allergies (dairy and shrimp) without depriving us of any of the wonderful courses, even dessert! The service pacing was leisurely and we had time to enjoy every course to its fullest. The waiter was well-informed about the wines and was a pleasure to talk to. All in all a very high quality experience

    After eating at Marmalade the night before, we weren’t sure what to expect with another prix fixe restaurant but Cocina Abierta was wonderful! Based on the reviews here, I ordered the vegetarian option (even though I’m not a vegetarian) and my husband got the omnivore. Everything we had was excellent. Although technically 4 courses, they start you off with bread and an amuse-bouche which was a delicious gazpacho. I particularly enjoyed the chayote and roots courses. Our servers were great. We especially like the background music. We’d definitely return.

    I enjoyed the experience. Not every course was a winner - perhaps some were trying a bit too hard. But a few stood out - the Mofongo was outstanding, and the pork main dish, while slightly overcooked (a running theme as was my swordfish), was tasty. It’s a nice vacation meal. The cold courses just didn’t meld like I expected. But the hot dishes were quite nice. The setting is beautiful - whoever designed this space deserves an award. Service was also exceptional. A good value at $95.

    Our server for dinner did a fantastic job, providing world class service. The food was extremely well prepared and thought out through the entire tasting menu. The cocktails were the highlight of the dinner for us, the bartenders created multiple cocktails for us based on our individual preferences, and even got us to enjoy drinks with different liquors than we typically enjoy.
