    Food is out of this world! Unfortunately the amount of time they took for the food was very longingly. As more than 40 minutes for one appetizer and more than one hour and a half for two dinner plates. This was very frustrating, but the food was great though. Service wasn’t 5 stars, as the guy said he was new to explain why he was slow, didn’t know things about the plates or drinks.

    La comida espectacular! El servicio puede mejorar bastante. Mesero nos pregunto la orden en 3 ocasiones. Trajo los tostones que son el acompañante del plato con el aperitivo. Las bebidas llegaron después del aperitivo. El restaurante estaba prácticamente vacío.

    Its a pretty good restaurant and its available For brunch most of the time. Their cookie dessert is one of the yummiest things I’ve ever tasted. Their menu is a bit limited but everything is good. Would recommend for brunch! The drink menu also looks good but its not available before 5pm so I didn’t get to try it.

    Food was pretty good. Tasty, well made. The tuna tartare tacos were very nice. An the mahi-mahi was very nicely presented and had good taste. But — service sucks. The waiter didn’t know the menu. Didn’t know anything about their signature drinks. They didn’t have a few things, so that limited our choices. I don’t think they know what they are doing, no experience running a restaurant. I’ll wait a long while before I go back.

    First if all, the food was EXCELLENT and the prices were reasonable for the quality of food. Ambience is very nice. The service is average but they waitstaff try. They are simply not trained well. The chef-owner should spend some time working with them to improve the service. For example, if there is a party of 5 who orders an appetizer that has only 4 pieces, the waiter should explain this and ask if they want an extra piece to be added. I have no problem paying for an extra piece but I don’t want to find out that there aren’t enough to go around after the food arrives. Water should be brought quickly and drink orders should be offered soon after the clients arrive.

    The order was not received complete by the kitchen, thus we had to wait more than expected. No complimentary dish or drinks were offered to compensate the mistake. The food was good, but we had to wait too long for the food.

    We loved the food! Just missed having cocktails (there was no bartender the night we went). Service was good, too. Just a suggestion for everyone in the industry, including chefs, owners and general managers. Staff must be trained to know every ingredient and product in the menu to offer excellence and go beyond expectations. But, I repeat, I would visit Marocha again. It was a pleasant first time.

    Regular menu was not available, but no warning was offered when making the reservation. They only had a Mother’s Day brunch special with 5 entrees to choose from, nothing else. No appetizers or lunch/dinner dishes. No parking available. When I asked about where to park I was told to park on the side, blocking others and I could move the car later if needed. They had no sparkling water, as the claim to have run out. We asked for sunny side up and got well done eggs, ordered an extra side of bacon and basically got a lump of coal, as bacon was burnt. I will never return and will make sure others know about experience, in hopes to save them from a terrible dining fiasco.

    Food was excellent. Unfortunately, it seemed the server was new and it took forever with our drinks. Even for a glass of wine. I waited an hour for my first cocktail to arrive. Other than the poor service, food was excellent.

    The blonde waitress needs a little bit more tack and attention when dealing with customers. Also if it closes at 8pm the "opentable" app should not let people make a 7:15pm reservation. Thanks!

    Service and ambiance were good but, there were many items from the menu that were not available including desserts. They have 3 dessert options and none were available. I ordered the fish plate and they offered to exchange it for cod because the fish they had wasn’t good. They need to work hard on maintaining a good inventory of their foods and not wait until they run out to then have to tell client that what they ordered is not an option.

    From the moment we walked in the staff greeted us and were extremely friendly and prompt. We picked where we sat and they were very attentive to us. We ordered food and 10/10 the best food we had in our entire trip. I ordered the Charusca a la Plancha with rice and my boyfriend ordered the Pollo a la Plancha with white rice. Gabriel even went the extra mile of ensuring we got the best picture for our anniversary. At no point did we feel like outcasts. They made us feel super welcome. Thank you Gabriel and Thank you to the staff at Marocha. You made our visit unforgettable and a point of highlight for our trip.

    They were out of a lot of ingredients and products. So we decided to go somewhere else since the options were very limited. It was a saturday at 5:30pm, when the opens for dinner. They were supposed to be ready to serve. A lot of other customers did the same as us.

    What is it that kitchens can't seem to cook meat and fish so both are correct? This time the fish (Cartucho) was great and the veal chop was cold, they replaced it quickly an it was undercooked, but it was tasty just wish they could figure it out. The place is nice outdoor seating good, service could be a bit better trained. Overall we will go again. By the way we are locals we live in San Juan

    We arrived for our reservation about 15 minutes behind. When we got there, our table was not ready. We quickly learned they were short staffed. 45 minutes later, we did not have water service nor any food. The appetizers finally arrived and they were delicious. Well made, quite innovative and well crafted. Sadly, we never made it to our main course because of there being a curfew of 9pm and the service being so slow. They were also out of plenty of items on the menu, including lemon AND lime both alike. We had placed our order, (after being told of many items being out). Shortly thereafter, the manager who was also our server (one of the only 3 people working that night), shared we had to leave and our table had to be closed because of the local madate/curfew. The manager seemed to be terribly embarrassed and sadly overwhelmed. He was incredibly kind but it was clear that they did not have enough staff working. This was definitely a moment where an experienced leader/owner should have been in the building given the personnel issues and the special circumstances this curfew creates for them. The food, and the concept is genial. What a shame the management of the house/business is not up to par with it. Complete shame....and our night was ruined because we didn't get to have dinner.

    If Open Table would let me assign 0 stars, that would be my rating. I cannot express how disappointed I am of this restaurant. Only two drinks from the menu were available, one of them was not even good. 30 minutes after ordering our food, the waitress let us know that what we ordered was not available; that of the three steaks that we ordered only one was available and that “we could fight over the one that was left”. After the food was ready, they packed our food to go because the closing time was at 9:00 (we had been there since 7:00pm) due to COVID and even asked for tip. We reserved a table outside and they assign us a table inside. For all this they did not even apologize. I honestly would not recommend this place for any occasion unfortunately.
