    Outstanding meal with perfect wine pairings and service - Eugenio, Agustin, and Emanuel all took amazing care of our party and we were never rushed. The recommendations were all on point. The Art Deco setting in the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel was magical in the vibrant San Juan neighborhood. Price for dinner was as expected - you’re there for the experience and to enjoy sharing it with the ones you’re with.

    Wonderful cuisine! We have not had a dining experience like this since Le Bec Fin in Philadelphia. Five stars to the Chef! The staff was excellent. Thank you William for your suggestions which were excellent. Jonal and Jorge were superb as well. The price reflects the highest level of culinary cuisine and the service is exceptional. To make our dining experience even better was the gift we were given when leaving. Not expected but very much appreciated.

    A fine dining experience -- tasty food, but nothing particularly unique or island-inspired. We stayed at the Vanderbilt and wanted to secure a table for our first night there. We ventured into Condado for dinners on subsequent evenings and found better values.

    I’m really surprised this restaurant is not a Michelin star restaurant. This is the second time I’ve been here. 40 plus countries visited, it is indeed the best overall restaurant I’ve been. Food is beyond delicious and the staff ensures you are pampered your entire meal. Expensive, but certainly worth it for a special occasion.

    We had a wonderful evening at 1919. With the wide expanse of the ocean view as a backdrop, we felt transported to another world of grace and elegance. The food was exceptional, and the wine pairing was educational. The craftmanship behind the production of the food was worthy of the reputation this restaurant has gained.

    I took my daughter here for dinner while in Puerto Rico for her birthday weekend. This was the third time I’ve been treated to an exceptional meal and service here. Is it pricy? Sure, and it is worth it. The attention from the staff is top notch. Wine pairings are perfect, the presentation is beautiful, and every course is delicious. William, Alejandro, and Jorge were all incredibly attentive. William accommodated my daughter’s preferences as it was Valentine’s week so the usual prix fixe menu had fewer options. This was VERY much appreciated, and she is still talking about how much she loved it. My only wish is that I was able to eat more of the desserts because they were spectacular.. My daughter loved the extra birthday dessert as well. If you want a special and memorable night out in San Juan, don’t miss this place!

    Beautiful restaurant, the food was very good but really, really overpriced. My main complaint is that we were waiting between 1st and second course at least 45 minutes… I had to remind the waiter that we are ready for the second course… I don’t think we will be back…

    This was a great experience, selecting the prefix Valentines menu. The ambiance and service were excellent, as well as 5 selections of the 6 course meal. Unfortunately, the main selections were awful, Wagu beef, and poached halibut. It's extremely disappointing since this is a 2-star Michelin restaurant. Hopefully, this was a one-off, but an $800 bill for the meal stings...

    Exceptional! Everything about our Valentine's Day special menu dinner was done at a high level. The staff were very accommodating of my need for dairy-free food. They reworked several items to remove the dairy and still present a complete dish. Rather than feeling like I had made their job more difficult, they made meI feel cared for. Alejandro was very knowledgeable about the champagne pairings served with each course. Every staff member we encountered was welcoming and anticipated our needs. The ambiance of the restaurant is refined but modern. We loved it and look forward to returning.

    Hello ! My booking was not as scheduled on arrival... service was not as I have been in previous occasions. Third course which was the fish, it was raw and not completely cooked... Overall it was inferior to other times and previous dates. Attention to back to basics and as I first dine there years ago is needed...

    We dined on Valentine's Day and opted for the prix fixe menu. To be fair, it may have been a bit busier than anticipated due to the special event and upcoming long weekend, so my ratings for service were likely impacted by staffing and demand for the unusual circumstance. Nevertheless, there were gaps in service and mistakes made that didn't align with expectations. The food quality was good, but overall the menu was not as balanced as you would expect at that price point. The choice to pair every dish with champagne, for example, was bold and I'm not sure played as well in practice as in theory. And the deserts were huge, considering the preceding portions sizes, and flavors were perhaps too bold - could have used some nuance.

    This restaurant is not worth the money. My husband and I went there for a nice romantic dinner. At first, things were great but as the restaurant became more full, the service became terrible, We were left sitting for a very long time in between courses with no one checking on us. They seemed more interested in the larger groups. The noise level is terrible. Don’t waste your money.

    We’ve eaten here three times in the past four years. The first two times were outstanding, and so we were looking forward to this, but unfortunately we were terribly disappointed. Although our server was very nice, the food has turned into nothing more than glorified wedding food. It was relatively tasteless and completely uncreative. Not sure what the problem was, but we won’t be going back anytime soon. Hopefully they’ll make some changes to return it to its previous stature.

    Service was average. Our glasses were empty on a few occasions. Food was average. So expensive. Very noisy due to live music being played in the lobby and the door to the restaurant was broken. Not worth it. Prices are ridiculous. Do not eat here.

    The whole experience was spectacular! After the second course, I said to my husband “the chef must have a Michelin Star” and then we discovered his restaurant in New York has 2 Michelin stars. The service was unparalleled, the ambiance was classy and sophisticated with a cool vibe and the food was gorgeously plated and delicious!!!!! FABULOUS❤️
