I am so disappointed!!! We are here on our honeymoon and I wanted a romantic dinner with my husband. We got married on Sat. our reservation was for Tuesday. We are staying at the Fairmont.

Our order was taken when we arrived and it took an hour and 15 minutes to get our meal. The first plate was burnt and we asked for medium and the 2nd plate was burnt as well. What is upsetting is that everyone around us was getting service. It makes me wonder if our race has something f to do with it. We were the o my ones not getting service. I had to ask for water and the waiter multiple times. I asked for the manager and some young female, who sat us, came to the table. I knew she wasn’t the manager. I feel they lied!!

What’s upsetting is that it was our first honeymoon night at the resort and we received horrible service. I was literally in tears! I wanted a romantic dinner with my husband and we were left with disappointment. We really looked forward to this but ended up at the pool bar ordering fish tacos and a burger.

I felt like the restaurant judged us, even though we were dressed well. I am a foodie…and I know fine dining. What’s sad is that we were treated like we didn’t know any better. I spend a lot of money traveling the world. And never experienced this before.

I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND!!!

One of our meals was good. The other was just ok. The service was not very good and the main reason for the rating. They seemed stingy with water filling only half the glass and not coming back frequent enough to fill it up, when we finished our drinks or our food the dishes weren't picked up until after we ordered dessert, and when we said we were interested in desert the waiter didn't give us a menu and just walked away. When he returned he told us what was on the desert menu. Some of this may seem small but when it's $100/plate you expect a higher standard.

Best steak house I've found in San Juan so far. Excellent selection of cuts and other entrees. Particularaly nice is the Meat Market Sampler, a selection of three 4 oz cuts so that you can try three different steaks on a single plate! Also has excellent appetizers. I have been multiple times and waitstaff is always polite, friendly, and helpful.

Hotel guests dress like they don’t care and everyone else can shove it. This is a very expensive restaurant. They shoud have a minimun dress code. Men in beach sandals, tshirts, basketball shorts hanging to below their underwear, women in cutoffs and tshirts are not only an eye sore they cheapen the place where the cheapest bottle of wine is 70$ and go all the way to 500$. Im a local. This place has gone down the drain. Not ever going back.

I made the reservation for 4 people to celebrate my friend’s birthday. The atmosphere is really nice and the hotel is beautiful (restaurant inside the El San Juan Hotel).

I was not happy with the food because it took too long (45mins) and they cooked the meat the wrong temperature. I requested medium and I got well done. I had to wait another 30mins for them to bring it out. Once it was out I was upset and they seemed to not care I had waited for over one hour to get the meat sampler. The one thing I really enjoyed was the lobster mac n cheese! It’s a must!!

we ordered cowboy steaks , nothing special about it , steak wasn’t up to par compared to the ambiance and atmosphere. Seasoning was good, steak was cooked medium rare but had little juiciness and the juice present didn’t hold the seasoning.

My husband and I had dinner 2 nights out of the 6 nights we were in San Juan. The food was fantastic. The beef dumplings are a must have. I had the prime rib. My husband ordered the Cowboy. The steaks were cooked to perfection. The staff were very friendly and attentive. I will definitely be going back.

Amazing!!! The hostess was super friendly and excellent in suggesting drinks. . The waitress was outstanding. She was well knowledgeable with the menu as well as the specials. The food was superb. The butternut squash soup was creamy and light. We had the tuna tartar was delicious. It melts in your mouth. The steaks are impecable. Any steak you choose is like a bite in heaven. I highly highly recommend this steak house you will not be disappointed.

Made reservations here for my birthday dinner. Restaurant did not have crab cakes or able to do our steaks Oscar style but had king crab available which was ironic. Service was unimpressive. Our waitress never checked in on us and we always had to flag her down. Food was ok but definitely not worth the price. Automatically charged us 20% gratuity for a party of 3 and had to ask them to remove the charge due to policy stating for parties of 6 or more. I don’t know if they tried to get over on us because we were tourist but I won’t be dining here in my next visit to San Juan.

Steak was delicious. Overpriced beyond recognition. Ridiculously overpriced, but was a great piece of steak. $80 for a 9 oz filet mignon (by itself) is crazy. Tasted great though.

Don't get the lobster mash potatoes!!! Worst I ever had!! They are orange in color and have zero pieces of lobster in it. Sooooo disappointing!!!!!

Reservacion era para las 5, llegamos a las 4:45PM y nos indican que esperaramos en los alrededores en lo que abrían y que nos avisarían al telefono. 5:15 vamos a ver porque no se nos ha llamado; contestan que estaba ocupada y no había podido, pero que ya podíamos pasar.
Preguntando por el menu nos enteramos que cuatro de los platos que nos interesaba probar no estaban disponibles ese día. La comida y la bebida en general no se destaca de otros lugares, patas de cangrejo mal cocidas, frias en unas partes, calientes en otras, las carnes rojas y acompañantes no estuvieron mal. Tal vez un poco sobreprecio para lo que se nos sirvio. Uno de los pocos lugares donde no daría una segunda oportunidad.

In times where there’s understaff everywhere I have to say this was the BEST dinner we had in Puerto Rico. Expensive but so delicious, meat cooked to order specifications. The fries and Brussels sprouts were a bit sweet to our taste but still very good! Great and long wine list. Highly recommend it. Elegant setting.
