Nanushka (I hope I spelled her name right) . She has been amazing every time. Your establishment should be very proud of her. Thank you!

Excellent service. Food was good, great cocktail. They also have valet parking. Just call and make a reservation to be able to get a table.

Absolutely wonderful restaurant! Delicious food and attentive service. I am a visitor and do not speak Spanish. My server spoke perfect English and made the experience a joy. I rated the noise level as "moderate" because I was dining on the outside patio near the street. I believe the dining inside the restaurant would be very quiet. This was a very popular restaurant the evening I was there.

La comida estuvo deliciosa, pero desafortunadamente se les había acabado el ozobuco de ternera. El mesero me dijo que en ocasiones puedes llamar para reservar el plato.
La sangría estaba bien hecha y los postres muy buenos. No le di excelente al servicio porque se tardaron mucho en traer el postre. Pero vuelvo de nuevo, porque en general fue una buena experiencia de cena.

Our sever asked about the special occasion we were celebrating. Asked whose birthday it was. Nothing ever came of it. Our main waiter was all over the place. Never asked how our food was. She was having a conversation with another table while I was trying to give my order. Felt very much ignored. Rice we ordered as our side was stale and hard. This place was definitely not worth the money.

On vacation and really enjoyed dinner! Lamb shank and pork loin outstanding. Sausage appetizer was great too! Great ambiance and fun! Only issue is the address for drivers (taxi and Uber) because pizza location with similar name on the same street. We had to walk from other location to correct one (luckily only like 2 blocks away).

It took an hour for our food to come to the table. Then they came and asked me if I ordered veal ossobuco when the ossobuco on the menu was pork so that’s clearly what I wanted. My entre showed up more than ten minutes after the rest of the table and the ossobuco was ice cold in the middle and the potatoes were also cold.

Over $220 for a bad dining experience will keep me from going back. They removed the ossobuco from the bill but I would have rather paid for a nice dinner celebration with my friends. Instead we left disappointed.

Reserved was sat outside without given an option. Waiters all over the place forgot to refill water or wine. Turned the lightbulbs on and a bunch of moths just flying all over the place. Appetizers of morcilla was undercooked and all the main dishes overcooked not to mentioned it took like an hour to get out meals. I think it was the Most frustrating to have the main dishes just bad terribly cooked. I am sorry I used to eat at the other location of this restaurant this was sad and I was ashamed to have taken my friend there.

False advertisement of items because the chef confused a flan with a cheesecake? Got there at 7 and left at 10, super slow. Asked for certain ingredients and the plate came out without them. Very pricey for spending 3 hours expecting food from a place that gets so much hype. Bathroom without soap in the middle of a pandemic. Next time I'll just go to McDonald's.

Good food, good service, but I think better organization would avoid the waiting time. Had reservations and waited nearly 40mins to be assigned a table and then another 50mins-1hr for the food. By the time we started eating the restaurant started closing and we felt we had to eat in a hurry. I dont mind waiting to be seated but the point of having a reservation is to have a table already assigned by the time we get there.

My company has an office in San Juan and this has been one of the go to favorites for us when we visit, this particular visit was my third trip during that week. I have not had anything from here that I have no liked and the staff is friendly and willing to make recommendations if you are stuck between a couple of options.

What a major disappointment of a dinner.
In summary it was a disaster. Rib Eye - greasy, asked for medium came out rare
2 NY Steaks - Bife de Chorizo - Under cooked, no flavor , poor meat quality, pasta undercooked, sauce was watered down, no flavor
1 hour to receive food
sorry but will never go back....
