The food was excellent both taste and presentation. The staff was wonderful. They were very accommodating for a food allergy.
No justifica el precio. Salsas a base de mayonesa y crema de leche. La crema de entrada del. Menú veggie es la misma salsa del tercer plato
Experience was wonderful. Food was great. So good in fact I returned four days later after discovering the tasting menu. Great value.
We love it! Food was excellent! Amazing value for the price.
Fresh and delicious food and drinks! A must try. Our waiter was very attentive and made our experience a great one.
Our server was excellent! Great convo and explanation of everything. We enjoyed each course, especially the gnocchis! If only the courses were a tad larger or we had the option to repeat a loved course would be awesome!
The chefs are very knowledgeable. The use high quality ingredients. Almost no waiting time. Excellent
Amazing from start to finish! Friendly service; great menu options (6 course meal with options for vegetarians; vegans; pescatarians); the food was amazing and the pace between courses is times very nicely and allows for a wonderful evening out!
Excellent Service and food quality, Great cocktails and ambient.
What a great experience! The food was amazing, but the staff really made this visit special.
Very good food, expensive for small portions but worth it
Outstanding from greeting to goodbyes. We had the two mostly meat menus, but I did ask to sub something from the vegetarian menu so we wouldn’t have multiple repeat courses between the two of us. ALLESANDRA was excellent and the kitchen staff made the change without notice or concern. Food was excellent, great team in the kitchen and out front. We asked to slow the roll a bit and take a smoke break- which again was handled professionally. We did have reservations on a Sunday and it wasn’t completely full- but overall a very welcoming and entertaining experience. We never handled our wine- it was served to us until the end. So great we bought the kitchen crew a bucket of beers which they opted for mid service! Nobody ever thanks those guys and we enjoyed watching them down it in the open kitchen.
We tried the Pescatarian, Omnivore and Carnivore menus. They’re all delish but my personal favorite was the Carnivore one.
My top three of the Carnivore menu: carpaccio, duck shitake mofongo and my personal favorite, the beef Wellington.
Fantastic tasting menu! We tried the vegetarian, pescatarian, and carnivore. Surprisingly loved the veggie courses the best. Sneak attack delicious.
Excellent food and service.
Food was great! Great experience! Would definitely come back again and recommend to friends!
Great way to end our vacation and celebrate my birthday.
Great 4 options for all food taste. We had the Pescatorio and Omnivoro. Delicious, great presentation.
We sat outside and it was confortable although you are very much close to the cars. The music was loungy and it would have been nice to have some other mix music, maybe some jazz or latinoamerican soft rock? just a suggestion...
The value was also wonderful compare to prices for similar places in the mainland.
We will do it again!!!!
Amazing food and wine. The tasting menu was an experience! Highly recommended!!
This experience was unforgettable and one of the best I’ve ever had. The price is well worth the value and I truly hope to have this same dining experience in the future.
Outstanding dining experience! Courteous, attentive service. Menu options and details of each course were explained patiently. Each course was creatively crafted and deeply flavorful. One of the best meals my husband and I have had. Coming from two foodies that says a lot!
Hands down the best food I have had in Puerto Rico! We ordered the mezcal mojito and it was both tasty and strong! I had the Carnivore 6 course and words can’t describe how good the Mofongo and the steak were. Will return 100%
Good food, good service - fixed menu extremely overpriced. Not as advertised. It is really $$$$ rather than $$
Great waiter and great food. I hope the next time I visit I can get full plates instead of tastes.
Menu de degustacion delicioso! Shalom fue excelente con su amable servicio y gran conocimiento sobre cada plato! Hace tiempo no ibamos… volveremos pronto!
The food was good and we did experience good service. However, the ambiance is rustic, bordering on shabby, and the chairs were VERY uncomfortable.
Although the food and service were good, my wife and I left underwhelmed and unmotivated to return in the future.
Very nice 5 course dinner, I had to he pescatarian option and every to hing was great, I couldn't finish the 4th plate, but I did finish the amazing dessert!
Excellent concept and ambiance. All the courses were well made and tasty. Excellent place for a date in an special occasion.
Loved the experience, the food, the wine, and the service. I definitely recommend this place to anyone who comes to San Juan. I can’t give this place enough stars. 5 surely isn’t enough. I’d give 1000 stars if I could. I will definitely be coming back to San Juan to enjoy this experience again.
Way too salty... The waitress did not seem to really want to serve us. Her tip was apparently already priced in (for a party of 3) so I see why she wasn't very eager to impress us. The food took way too long to arrive even though we literally were the only ones inside.
Good place. Very nice menu -- different from the usual fare. Very, very good service.
Great experience! Taste different dishes and wine. Cute!
Food was amazing! Don’t forget to do the wine pairing!
Food, drink, service, ambiance - 5 stars for everything. The 6 course tasting meal presents an innovative and creative take on local and fresh cuisine. As a vegetarian, I appreciated the vegetarian meal option, but there are also menu options for pescatarians, and meat eaters. The service was just as good as the meal. Our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable about food and wine, and professional. We’ll be back.
La experiencia de los cursos fue grandiosa. La mesera debió ser más agradecida. Y al llegar no había valer parking me estacioné solo y al salir me cobraron por un valet parking que no tuve el servicio no se si es parte del restaurante pero lo menciono por que desconocía de ese sistema. Pero lo más importantes es resaltar que la comida y vinos fue clase A los Felícitas mil bendiciones a todos en el restaurante.
It is an experience more than just a meal. So make sure you have the time for a full 6 courses. But really worth it.
Do not miss this! The food is fabulous. Each course is better than the one before and the service is outstanding.
The cuisine is fantastic. Just make sure to ask about the wine food pairing. I was the only patron this was not offered to and I think is part of the experience of such a nice cuisine in a non pretentious relaxed environment.
I chose the carnivore 6 course tasting menu which I believe is very well priced. I also added the wine pairing. The food was delicious and all ingredients are locally sourced. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The carpaccio was one of my favorites.
The whole experience was fantastic! The food was spectacular. I had the pescatarian 5 course dinner and my husband had the carnivorous dinner. That way we tasted a lot of the dishes...they where all outstanding, half to pick the beat! Then the dessert was the perfect bite to crown a really delicious dinner. Our waiter, Ismael, was perfect, so professional and friendly and very knowledgeable and explained ovary dish perfectly. The ambiance was single elegance and very Romantic! Baby wait to dine at Cocina Abierta again!!
