Es la peor experiencia que he tenido en una cena y más en un día tan especial y no lo hicieron especial para nadie la comida estaba fría , se tardaba entre cada plato muchísimo tiempo llegué a la 8:30 pm y eran casi las 11 pm y de 4platos principales solo comí 2 y claro el postre no iba a llegar pedí la cuenta porque moría de hambre y tuve que salir ahí a comer en otro lado y claro tuve que pagar 220 dólares porque igual te cobran no les importa si comiste bien o no te piden la tarjeta de crédito para hacer la reservación!! Fuè un total desastre en comida tienen un 0

Atmosphere was nice we sat outside. Our group got appetizers (good octopus and tuna ceviche) and fish. The fish dishes were good but the fish was dry. Crafty cocktails .

It is all about dining with an ocean view, then add great food and service. What more can one ask for?

aMare is an understated gem in the heart of Condado that easily competes with any high end restaurant. Don’t let the small size deter you as the food is first rate and the service highly refined. Everything is complemented by a clean contemporary vibe with an ocean front setting. Great for a special occasion or just treat yourself to one of San Juan’s hidden seaside culinary secrets.

We enjoyed a nice evening at dinner. It wasn't busy so less noise. Service was well paced, although a bit slow to start. Perhaps if they offered bread or something first. Service was pleasant. Food preparation was excellent; on a side note the halibut over sweet potato puree I found there way too much puree. I was expecting a smaller amount. It took away from the fish. Overall it was great!

The staff were very nice, the location on the water is BEAUTIFUL, the food was really great, especially the lobster tacos, and the drinks were tasty. The best was the cucumber mojito and the old fashioned, their margaritas aren’t amazing though.

Beautiful view during the evening but if it winds girls can’t enjoy it much. Food was good - servers were announcing new menu coming out soon. Honestly we are regulars here but can’t wait to try the new ones.
Great job all! See you soon.

Even we were served by the manager. Specially thanks for him. The salted branzino unforgettable experience. Super good food & best view in terrace.

It was the second time we visited the restaurant and it will be the last. We arrived earlier, the reservation was approximately at 9:00 pm. It was very empty, lonely tables. Nobody received us, only the bartender said good night and told a partner of our presence. We sat where we wanted. We were given the menu and its variety of products to offer. The waiter took more than 20 minutes to bring a simple drink. Also, it took to bring a glass of wine to my companion. I must emphasize that they were very quick to offer the appetizer, in fact, it was not very hot. When we finish eating the appetizer, the waiter removes the plate and says "something else I can offer you". A little annoying I replied: No. It is not the same to say, are you ready to order your dinner? What to say something else I can offer you? Perhaps the restaurant has been the focus of famous people who frequent it. But I answer that, apart from the famous PUERTO RICO WE HAVE PROFESSIONAL PEOPLE, WITH ECONOMIC CAPACITY TO GIVE LIKES AND SPEND IT WELL DAILY. WITHOUT USING A CREDIT CARD, BUT CASH. We felt undervalued in the restaurant. I will never visit it again and they can close it for me. The attention is for foreigners or famous people or who "appear" to have money. Be careful because not everything that glitters is gold.

Beautiful restaurant, Servers were great. Had a reservation and we got there at 10 minutes early they told us it would be a minimum of 30 minutes before were seated. After being seated it took another 45 minutes to get our first cocktail... when the family of five next to us heard us ask for our drinks again they told us they were there one hour and 30 minutes and still had not seen a piece of bread. At that point we chose to leave. Never seen any food after an hour of being there. Would love to go back on a less busy weekend I’m sure the food must be wonderful if only I could’ve gotten to try it.

I really don’t like writing reviews......
I suggest that reservations to AMare be made early in the evening. Thing begin to fall apart after 7. Understaffed and inexperience makes a late dinner horrible!!

The place seems overbooked, and had a lot of angry customers in line, after we got seated we didn’t see food until 9:40 pm, and we sat at the table at 8:10 pm. They ran out of many ingredients, and most dishes were missing something, the risotto I ordered had no flavor and was cold, and my wife’s pasta was undercooked

Overall it was not a bad experience the food was good the mushroom risotto was really good, we also had the pasta in the cheese wheel which was just ok. We also had the burger and the pasta bolognese which were both good. The only complaint is that service was really slow.

I would give this place 7+ stars if I could. I have traveled internationally extensively and have never been in a better setting with better service. The food was amazing, too. We plan to go back for many special occasions. One of my all time favorites, for sure!
