We went twice in our week stay at the Ritz Carlton. The dining experience and ambiance were memorable.

The restaurant was a little difficult to find in the dark but it was absolutely beautiful and really does sit just feet from the ocean. By no means a cheap meal, but a very nice place for a special evening.

The frogs made wonderful noise :). The plates as you would expect, designed and tasty. Although the bar did not have Chautreuse to make the cocktail 'Last Word' they made a wonderful mix by leveraging the herbs infused gin that tasted close to a Last word drink. Take time to see all the artwork and grounds.

Not an easy place to get to from San Juan. Mi Casa is located at the Ritz Dorado Reserve which looked quite elegant. Took Uber there, but only option to get back to San Juan was a car service at $75-ouch!

Restaurant was chic with great al fresco option overlooking the ocean. Server was friendly , knowledgable and efficient. Food is good but at the high price point a bit disappointing.

We went to the Ritz Carlton for dinner at José Andrés and were blown away. The hotel is spectacular. We arrived a little earlier that our reservation so had time to explore a little. It was sunset and we approached the pool area and the view was stunning. We had some drinks at the pool bar before heading to the restaurant where the service, attention to detail and food were just amazing. The choices are unique variations of Spanish dishes wit a Puertorican influence. The best two items (among a lot of delicious items on the menu) were the "pan con tomate" (bread with tomato) that melted in your mouth. The deconstructed key lime pie made me emotional it was so delicious. The textures and flavors were unforgettable. We will return here during our next Puerto Rico visit!

Ate here during our stay at the Ritz Dirado beach. Food was divine - the service impeccable and we sat on the outer deck facing the ocean. Noise level was good you could hear yourself speaking it's all private and the service was wonderful Only con is that it's quite pricey but that being said it is a resort and it's to be expected

Phenomenal tapas and snapper to die for. I would put this in one of my top five restaurants of all time... up there with the likes of Aubergine in London and Aqua in San Francisco.

We went to Mi Casa a year ago and loved it so much that we planned to go back. This is the best example of everything done right. From the beginning appetizers to the fantastic desserts, it is a beautiful thing to look at and the favors are amazing. Our server was well versed on the wine pairing and she made sure that we were taken care of. It was just after our 50th wedding anniversary, so Victor the chef brought us out a signed copy of Jose Andres cookbook. A perfect ending to a perfect meal!

Mi Casa was one of the finest restaurants I have ever been too! We were there with another couple and we ordered the Tapas Tasting Menu. This 12 course menu was truly the greatest meal we all have ever had. Ir was a bit pricey, but worth the price. There was not one course that we did not like. The resort was sensational. Remembering the old Hyatt resort brought a tear to my eye.
The only negative was that they were reluctant to let us on the property when we arrived at the resort one hour early.

WOW.....says it all. What a great experience. Food was original and delicious. A group of four had four appetizers and shared two entrees and had three desserts and we were very happy. Our server, Soraly, was phenomenal. Professional, knowledgable, charismatic, friendly and all over terrific. I wish we had more servers like Soraly in NYC. When in Puerto Rico....please do yourself a favor and dine here. Remember to make a reservations first on Opentable.

Our veal and lamb entrees were Michelin-star quality, to savor every bite and flavor. The shrimp (gambas al ajillo) in a rich sauce almost like Mole, also really stood out for us as exceptional. The whole area is beautiful to enjoy on a nice evening too!

We went to celebrate my parents 30 anniversary. The Bartender Valerie was awsome with the drinks. Our waiter Jovanny was great too. The Chef Victor and his team was awsome. We love the "Asopao de Langosta" made by Carlos. The ambience was quiet, relaxed and the restaurant view was awsome. We had a great time and my parents were happy, smiling and the taste of everything was extremely good. Thanks again for everything.

Dining at Mi Casa by José Andrés is always a great culinary experience. Service is always consistently good. The view is astonishing and sets de ambiance for your date, either a romantic, friendly or familiar occasion. Although price range is high, if you can fir it in your budget it is worth a visit!

Very disappointing. Heavy on salt. Tried the pork belly sliders and the chicken crochettes as apps - both very salty and the crochettes were certainly from a frozen bag. The fish dishes were underwhelming as well. We were very surprised that the Ritz would allow this poor quality to be served at such a fabulous resort. (Love the room, hate the food). Stay at the Ritz; eat at Marmalade.

We had an excellent experience at Mi Casa. The food was good and the service great. It's fine dining without being pretentious. Everybody was having a good time.
Two things: when we arrived nobody was at the front and it was hard to find the path within the hotel because poor lightning and signage. Hotel valets were very friendly and helpful.

I guess my husband and I were expecting a WOW experiencing. We chose the sampler and was disappointing that the last serve was soup. I have never had soup prior to dessert. The taste was not spectacular. I also expected better service.

While in Puerto Rico, we also went to dine at the Pearl/Concha, and THAT was amazing!. The food, service and views. i would definitely recommend this restaurant. From the Valet parking to the bill - there were four of us. It was fantastic!

Cod appetizer was tasty; key lime tart delicious; other appetizers & entrées very disappointing. Special was an overly rich flavorless rice-a-roni dish. Beautiful setting, decent service, very disappointing food. Recommend Positivo. Same location, great food, great staff. Both restaurants require an $18 dollar valet fee.

The food was a work of art. Delicious. Creative. The tuna, caesar salad all impeccable. I need to go back again to be in la la land for the evening.
Beautiful setting.

And I say best restaurant because there was nothing bad, not a single thing! I went with my husband to celebrate our first month as newlyweds and my husband's birthday. Since we arrived, the attention was phenomenal. Our waiter was very friendly, he welcomed us with two glasses of "cava" for our special occasion, he suggested entrees and explained everything to us. As appetizers we ate "Tortilla de Papatas New Way", "Steamed bun with pork belly and chayote mojo" and "Coquitos Frescos Ferran Adria"... An explosion of flavor in my mouth, just exquisite! And very nice presentation. My husband ate the rib eye and I chose Skirt Steak with papas bravas... Good GOD! Every bite was pure pleasure! For dessert we choose Mi Casa... chocolate, hazelnut, olive oil and salt... the perfect way to end our dinner. Very memorable experience, the surroundings are ridiculously gorgeous!!!!!!!!!
The experience is worth every penny, I fully recommend it.

We have been several times to Mi Casa and overall have had good experience.
Service is great, food is good and the ambience is quite elegant. Although they recommend jacket for attire, everyone was casual but elegant.
Have been to other more expensive restaurants that serve very small portions. Our menu this time had "decent portions" but still expect a bit more for the price.
What we like the most of the restaurant is its location at the Ritz Carlson Reserve! Its a beautiful hotel for an early dinner sunset style in their outside terrace with the Ocean and hotel pool view!
