    We were placed off to the side in a room with a large party and one other table of two. Before the large party arrived I asked to be moved because I knew it would be loud and spoil the ambiance. They had no other table available. I do not know if I was placed there because I made the reservation with Open Table ( because it usually goes that way) however my fears were realized. I could barely hear the server. The group of 12 were not all that noisy, just a big group. The food was good , not fantastic, but very flavorful. Took a long time to receive our drinks as well. One other thing, when you order dinner you need to order the dessert soufflé at the same time in order to get it on time. We did that but it took about 35-40 minutes after our plates were cleared to receive that dessert. The restaurant did not charge us for it. I actually own a restaurant and my experience with a restaurant is that you give the customer a good experience as well as good food. In that respect this restaurant failed. No manager came to speak with us or to make any amends as well. Be specific if you book that you do not want to be in the side room.

    The service was great as always, the appetizers were excellent, the crab tacos (taquitos actually) and the escargot yuca bacon mofonguitos (amazing but, again very small and only 4). I ordered the Sea Scallops for sin dish and they were a little overcoked (good, but not great). The best thing was the chocolate rice cake with chocolate mousse and chou cake inside topped with “Turrón ice cream. I am coming the next time just for appetizers and desserts.

    Expectations were high but the food was not overwhelming. Great service, overpriced, meals were too rich and the paella was crunchy. Not worth the money

    Had an excellent meal and service from Jesus. Sea Bass was delicious… a good portion cooked to perfection served on top of a yuca mash with a foie gras sauce and esparagus; chocolate souffle was divine, appetizers we shared were also very good: pionono, alcapurrias, octopus, cauliflower soup. Nice Cocktails and Pinot Noir! Will surely come back soon!

    We enjoyed the home made tostones and the yuca fries. They have vegan options as well. We had the cauliflower steak with celery root mash, and the chicken with almonds. Very good. Nice staff. Decor is minimal style, and could use a pop of color.

    To notch experience at Mario Pagan. The food was wonderful but the main reason we had such a great experience was our super helpful waiter, Alberto. His advice was impeccable and added so much in terms of friendly hospitality. Highly recommend!

    Amazing dinner at Mario Pagan’s. Every time we visit San Juan we make a stop here. Everything from the appetizers, drinks, service and dinner were phenomenal and we have dined in numerous highly acclaimed restaurants around the US and this is one of our faves. Make sure you save room for dessert- the soufflé is out of this world.

    Went for the first time to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Alberto and Daniel were our outstanding servers. As first timers we rely on reviews and recommendations and they were all great. Whole experience was above expectations. Will go again. PD valet is a most unless you’re within walking distance.
