This was our first visit to this restaurant. The service was outstanding by David. The menu is very interesting with a fusion of local and international ingredients. I had some issues with my main dish, but, other than that, I would strongly suggest a visit. You will definitely not be disappointed. Again, kudos for David.

The appetizer special of duck confit with a foie gras sauce was sublime. The cocktails were stunning. The passion fruit flan dessert was such a wonderful end to an amazing meal.

The small room near the front of the restaurant has almost no ambiance. The fact that the food was great did help compensate for it, but the a/c in there being out of reach of the staff leaving them unable to control the blowers is too low budget for a high-end establishment. That is what remotes are for.

Best dining experience during our entire stay and we dined at similar highly rated and 4$ establishments. Lovely server and wonderful appetizers, lamb alcapurrias and tuna tartare, and great main dish of pork chop and lamb confit. Fully booked but would love to dine again before departing, otherwise next return trip to PR.

AMBIENTE MINIMALISTA SIN MUSICA DE FONDO.
POCA PRIVACIDAD ENTRE LAS MESAS
LOS SOFAS SON INCOMODOS Y LA MESA QUEDA POCO ALTA
COMIDA MUY BUENA PERO LAS PORCIONES DE LOS APERITIVOS SON GRANDES POR LO TANTO COMO PLATO PRINCIPAL TUVE QUE PEDIR OTRO APERITIVO PUES UN PLATO PRINCIPAL NO LO IBA A PODER COMER.
SERVICIO : AUNQUE SIEMPRE ESUVIMOS ATENDIDOS PERO FALTABA MAS SINCRONIZACION ENTRE LOS MESEROS
COCKTELES SON MUY BUENOS
PRECIO: BUENO PARA LA CALIDAD DE COMIDA Y BEBIDA QUE SE SIRVE

Went here to celebrate my wife's birthday. Had seen that it was highly recommended online. the service was good, the food was great but what i expected was a quiet romantic dinner. And did not get that because of some customers were there at the bar having drinks and being very loud. Mind you, i don't mind people having a good time at a bar, but more like a sports bar or a bar and grill type of place. But not at a restaurant considered to be one of the finest and owned by top chef, Mario Pagan.

Food was very good but service was bad despite the restaurant being almost empty when we were there, therefore, we consider that it was extremely expensive for the overall experience we got. We even had to pay for our parking spot (on full transparency, we knew we would have to pay the parking) and had to wait a while to get our car, and again, this place was not even one third filled. I can’t imagine how would it be if it would have been packed.

The sea bass, crispy rice, salad and fish special were excellent. The soufflé was also outstanding. However, it is hard to substitute sides. Waiter indicated he could not give me mashed potatoes because they were a part of other plates. Sounds strange to me. He also said they had no French fries yet table next to us had them. Cocktails were really good.

Overall, the restaurant is very good and I would return. However, they do need to improve on the availability to substitute side entrees.

We accidentally booked another restaurant for the wrong night so had to scramble to find a place for dinner - and am glad we picked this place. The service was top notch and the food was delicious. The tuna tartar was excellent as was the sea bass. I would recommed this place.

I must say we enjoyed everything at Mario Pagan’s, the attention to detail of the waiters Alberto & company, the soup of the day, appetizer sampler, the main course, we had the lobster Thermidor and the Sea Bass and both were excellent and to finish the chocolate soufflé was outstanding! Even the pricing wasn’t bad compared to other high class restaurants in the area. Highly recommended.
