First off, this is a must stop if your a "Foodie". Everything we had was an amazing combination of flavors and aromas. I had the lamb, which was "like butter". My wife had the Caribbean Lobster. Melted in your mouth, and the infused butter was to die for. We went on a Thursday night during the Covid restrictions and our service was A+. We were the only diners and never felt uncomfortable. If you come to Puerto Rico you must eat here.

The best meal I had in Puerto Rico! Interesting flavors, beautiful presentation, and wonderful service. An upscale twist on local cuisine.

As a single traveler, the staff went out of their way to make sure I had an enjoyable meal. The dining room is beautiful, the staff gracious..but go for the food. Simply delicious.

We waited for our table, which we had reserved prior to the occasion and still hd to wait about 20min. Then when we sat down they made us wait about 30 min for the first course of a preset menu. Waited another hour for out main ourse and another 30 min for our dessert. I have dined at Almaviva about 2 other times and it was excellent. So i decided to take my date there for Valentines day dinner. Worst Valentines day EVER!

Outstanding experience. Our server Maria was fabulous and provided excellent recommendations. The food was excellent and masterfully presented. Tuna tartare was the best I’ve had and the pork cheeks are a must. Disregard recent one star reviews - our server informed us they were closed for a weeks or so due to the earthquakes resulting in loss of power and food. They are very much open and serving incredible dishes. This is a must go if in the area and definitely worth the trip if out of the area.

I made a reservation a week in advanced. Got confirmation the morning of the reservation. To then get a text message at 5:00pm saying they would be closed that night. If you are going to use OpenTable or any other reservation doftware.... maje the necessary updates. Very dissapointed.

What I loved the most about this place was the service and ambience. They were great and live music that was perfect with the ambience of the restaurant. The presentation of the food was great. I picked this place for our wedding anniversary while visiting PR and it was a great choice.

Food was a very appealing blend of French and Asian techniques and flavors. Service was top-notch and very accommodating of food allergies and preferences. Inventive cocktails. Definitely recommend for a focus on preparation and presentation. Would certainly return. Easy walking distance from a number of hotels in the area, so if you're in the area and looking for a real culinary experience, this is a must try.

Overall this place is amazing. Food is beautifully presented and of spectacular flavors. Service is casual elegant and friendly. Great cocktails and wine list. Even the background music is a perfect match. A must try is the foie and duck raviolis, the tuna tartar, the calamari arancinis, the shrimp Risotto, the osso buco and the beef tenderloin. Don't forget for dessert the chocolate cake with some neat Puertorican dark rum. Trilled to be a regular on this place

Slow and Expensive
The service was very slow. We sat there for an hour and a half before we got any food. They charge $12 for water and $12 for bread. I got soup. You should get bread with your soup.

We’ve been here a couple of times. Tonight, with our daughter on her 16th birthday trip. Our server, Maria, was a true professional and was the stand out of our experience today. Cocktails were very slow - the bartender was out so they were working on a skeleton crew...totally get it - but delicious. The Brussels and the smoked beef dish were exceptional. Entrees were hit and miss (actually 2 hits and one miss). We joined on a Friday night with live music which was really good,but a little loud. Bottom line: this is a solid restaurant....we happened to experience on an “off night.”
