This was the first time for a party of four. I was called ahead of time by the staff to ascertain if I wished to sit outside or inside. I chose inside. Two of us arrived and we were immediately escorted to the bar area with rather small tables and an all together small area for "inside" dining. When finished I ventured past the entrance area and found a nice dining area they called the "Main Dining Room" in full swing of many tables in use and a few that were not. I expressed my displeasure at not being told of or shown the other facilities which, of course I would have chosen. Please be careful when you make your reservations that you wish the outside or the main dining room and not the cramped bar area.

Favorite spot, service outstanding, beautiful setting, consistently honest and well-prepared fare. Been coming to Cedar Creek in San Juan regularly for seven years and have never had a bad meal or experience.

We went to dinner on Sunday evening, ....staff was overbooked, food was slow, Bread came After entrees, server worked Very hard, did good job, but was scrambling to keep up with entire room he served..... when bill came, we noted prices were somewhat higher than menu, and when we inquired, prices were redone properly, and apologies given...(..we were told the computer was still set for Valentines Day prices. ) So, ....that means you were overcharging diners from Thursday to Sunday.....Shame on you..... I can not recommend your restaurant to my friends...

The food was excellent and our waiter Javier was very attentive and very fun. So was the server that kept replenishing our ice tea. I didn't catch his name, but he was really funny and we enjoyed our afternoon immensely.

We enjoyed our meal. Made a last minute reservation on Open Table for a Friday night and was easily accommodated. Staff was courteous and attentive. Food was very good. Comfortable outside dining area with fireplace. Based on this experience would recommend it for almost any occasion.

Lovely Valentine’s Lunch with the hubby. Our halibut was tasty and the chocolate ganache dessert was rich and decadent. Had a cozy table by the fireplace. Great food and ambiance!
