One of the nicest dining experiences we have ever had. The food was extremely well prepared especially the famous white bean soup, the special of the day goat meatballs and the perfectly cooked and prepared sea bass. Love this food and this restaurant. Would be in our regular rotation if we lived closer.
Wonderful. Pricey but worth it!
Katya was awesome!! The food was exceptional. We are so happy we booked this restaurant. Thank you Marcus Lemonis!!!❤️
Chef's suggestions and wine pairings were excellent! Tim was a great waiter, definitely will recommend everything.
Consistently perfect dining. Flavors are a symphony in one's mouth.
Just had an overnight in San Juan but had the good fortune to visit Marmalade for dinner. Service was excellent and our waitperson Grayshel was very knowledgeable and friendly.. Menu was fixed courses but 3-6 was available. We were very pleased with our choices and the wine pairing was perfect. I'd highly recommend this restaurant.
Everything, like always, is amazing.
Best tasting/pairing menu in Puerto Rico. Our server/docent, Lisa, was extremely knowledgeable about the food and wine, and she showered us with special touches that made our experience extra special. Chef Peter was very attentive and took the time to share his personal story and the story of the restaurant’s recovery after Hurricane Maria. We couldn’t have planned a better evening!
White beans soup!!! Great service, great food great ambiance. One of the best in the island
Simply one of the best culinary experiences I have had!
Everything was perfect but Katya made the evening 10 times better. The way she treated us and the excitement that she showed when explaining everything on the menu with a gorgeous smile sealed the experience for me. I would recommend it to anyone and will come back because of the whole experience.
What a special find for our vacation. This was an outstanding evening meal while visiting San Juan. We chose the wine paring and sampled 11 different food offerings. Each item was inventive, delicious, and beautiful. The wines were unique and they were an equal highlight to the food. Understandable that they have continued to receive Wine Spectator awards. If you love great food, don’t miss a meal at this restaurant.
Cat, our server was INCREDIBLE! Go to this restaurant. The food and service were incredible. Best meal I’ve ever had in Puerto Rico—will come back again and again!
Absolutely amazing everything! Service was incredible! Every dish was delicious, Including the vegetarian options. I didn’t want to stop eating!
Everything was absolutely delicious! The service was excellent!
The staff was outstanding and the food was excellent. Loved the wine pairings with the meal and the course selections were phenomenal. This is a must if you are in Old San Juan!
We were in Old San Juan a year ago and just able to return this March after Hurrican Maria of 5 months ago. There were many restaurants who did not survive and have closed, but we were super excited to see that Marmalade not only survived but is thriving!!! We love sitting at the bar, so this time was no exception - the bartender, Omar, was outstanding and new the menu as well as the drinks. We had some amazing tastes, but our favorite was the Foie Gras - truly exceptional.
It was quite the splurge, even without alcohol, but it was worth every cent! It was especially great for my wife, who is vegetarian. They had plenty of selection since the chef's wife is vegetarian. We had the 5 courses, which was a lot of food, but since we don't know when we're coming back to San Juan, we wanted to get in as much as possible. Treat yourself to this restaurant. You won't be disappointed!
I always hesitate to give this high rating because no one believes it—but in this instance it is true. Everything about our experience at Marmalade was excellent. Cannot wait to go back.
Being a native New York City Upper East Side resident , I have spent many an evening at the finest restaurants in Manhattan, ( as my Open Table account will attest to) and would rate my experience at Marmalade in San Juan,
equal to the best of dining experiences in Manhattan, and nearly as perfect as ding at Le Bernadin, which is my favorite restaurant in Manhattan, ( as it is with so many others whom have dined there )
The meal, service and atmosphere were so wonderful at Marmalade, that after dining there on Sunday evening, I returned Monday evening for an encore of such a delightful evening.
And not only was the appetizers , entrees, and desserts amazing, the wine pairings with them were extraordinary, and the cost for the dinner certainly much less than it should have been.
The service was exceptional, and the friendliness of the entire staff from the Hostess, to the Servers, to the Chef himself , who graciously visited at various times to each table , to inquire if everything was acceptable, was a pleasure, so rarely experienced while dining at restaurants, even the finest of them
And I cannot imagine myself when returning to San Juan in the near future, not dining there again, as well as an experience which I shall rave about to anyone visiting San Juan
My boyfriend and I took my high school-aged children to Old San Juan for spring break. We arrived at Marmelade per TripAdvisor recs as well as the recommendation from our friend who lives here part of the year. Our meals were outstanding...ranging from tuna poke app, paella “sushi” and “antioxidant greens salad” to our entrees of tenderloin, seared ahi tuna topped with foie gras (mine!!), lamb tangine and sea bass. The desserts were all outstanding. We ordered the 3 course meals each bc we could not imagine eating more than that...suited us just fine. GO!!
This was our third time we have eaten at Marmalade & again, it was awesome. My husband & were leaving on a cruise out of San Juan & decided to go to Marmalade the night before we left. It’s an easy walk in Old San Juan area from the Sheraton hotel near the port. We are considering going again on the backend. You can try something new with a 3, 4, 5 or 6 course tasting menu. Ambiance is very cool, whether u eat in the restaurant or ala crate in the bar.
Our server was absolutely amazing. Thank you for a wonderful evening and taking such good care of us.
An amazing experience, can’t wait to dine there again!!!
PURE ECSTASY!!! THE BEST DINING EXPERIENCE IN PUERTO RICO!!! IT IS WORTH EVERY PENNY.
Marmalade is a true Puetro Rico gem. Completely unique menu, wonderful knowledgeable staff. Owner/chef could not be more welcoming, greeting guests every night. This was our 4th visit, one can not go to Old San Juan and not make a reservation (if you can get one) here. Even with all the destruction around patrons are still finding their way in the dark streets to this wonderful restaurant.
The best dinner dining experience to be had in San Juan. I have extreme dietary restrictions, and they were not only completely accommodating, the food was fantastic!
The service level at Marmalade is beyond compare. It is only outshown by the wonderful menu and quality of their food and presentation. I can't wait to go back
Excellent service and outstanding food. The venue is beautiful and the environment is relaxing.
Absolutely fabulous. One of the best restaurant we've dined at.
Completely unexpectedly marmalade was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. The food was interesting and extremely tasty; the portions were Generous. The staff was friendly and engaging. However, the biggest surprise was the personal attention the chef and owner paid to us and all of his guests. Don’t miss this Puerto Rican gem.
One of the best, most eclectic meals we have ever had. We loved all the creativity that goes into the food and drink. Great wine pairings as well. Our server was excellent and knowledgeable and eagerly answered all our questions.
My wife has several food allergies including Celiac. Gabe, our server, took careful notes and then Chef Peter came out to discuss the dishes she could have — some with special preparations to deal with her allergies.
She was able to have everything that she fancied on the menu.
I don’t have allergies and my biggest issue was working my way through the menu to narrow my selections.
All 8 dishes (plus dessert) were superb. Fabulous flavors, obviously quality ingredients, and wonderful presentation.
We’re from New York, now live in Charleston, and have eaten at great restaurants in those cities and around the world — and Marmalade certainly ranks in the Top 10 (maybe the Top 5).
Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys great food, and ESSENTIAL for those with dietary issues.
This place is amazing the food is so tasty. Love that the chef came to say hi. For the three course meal. If I could have the white bean soup for each meal...I would.
One of the best meals I have ever had!
Fabulous food and wine pairing; very Knowledgeable and accommodating waitstaff. Overall a terrific first night in San Juan!
Everything went well, food was delicious. I ordered the 5 course meal w/ girlfriend and it was excellent. 10/10 on all dishes except the tuna over lentils... that was the only thing that wasn't perfect. Foie gras was 11/10.
Peter out did himself once again. Marmalade is second to none. The best food on the island....
Always wonderful! The food, and service never disappoint!
Not overly impressed. Food was above average for the Caribbean but not worth the price. Would not return.
