Nothing special, we went for my boyfriends birthday which I indicated in the booking and there was no special treatment given. Also the lobster Mac & cheese was underwhelming, we ordered the Tomahawk which was good not sure good enough for the $165 price, we also had to box up our leftover, never been to a fancy steakhouse that didn’t do that in the back as a curtesy and also so you don’t spill something on your dress attire. Definitely wouldn’t consider the service in a 5 star range. Not worth the price.

Most underwhelming dining experience of my adult life. High expectations for this restaurant, and none were met from the ambience to the service to the quality of the food.

Meat quality was just ok. Too expensive for the quality & quantity received. Prefer other steakhouses in the area.

Excellent food. Lovely atmosphere & service, HOWEVER, the hostess was so inappropriately dressed. It was quite frankly, an embarrassment. She was a large girl, with a skirt so short that it barely covered her private parts. In fact, when she bent over, we saw far more than we ever should have or wanted to. That being said, my churassco was perfectly cooked, the bread was fresh & delicious, the truffle mashed potatoes wonderful & tomato soup excellent too. Highly recommended but for heavens sake, have your hostesses dress appropriately

No one asked if our food was satisfactory. Service was less than satisfactory considering the high end costly restaurant. Did not se the waiter until he came with bill. Lobster was over cooked or stale and was soggy for 65.00.

Absolutely fantastic! The restaurant is wonderful, and our waiter was really friendly, and the food was delicious. They assisted my fiancé in putting my proposal together. The Meat Market's services have exceeded my expectations.

I went by myself, seating at the bar, after an hour 20 minutes my food finally arrived and the Filet was well done completely Dry and I ordered it Medium. This is the second time that I went to this restaurant and I’m really disappointed.

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.
