6 Ounce Lobster Tail to Any Steak
Prime Short Rib and Lobster Risotto
certified angus beef maine lobster, baby tomato, red wine
Crab and Lobster Cake
cured pineapple, radicchio, rémoulade sauce
The steak was good but the starters and sides were lackluster. The service was terrible given the prices.. even when factoring in limited staff and generally poor service at the hotel.
Food was really good, steaks cooked to perfection. The major issue was the wait time. Took about 1.5 hours to get food out from the point of ordering. Was not super busy in there.
Ivan, our server was attentive without being obtrusive, authentic, and thoughtful. A real pro! Although Ivan was seen wearing his mask properly at all times,some in the staff walked the restaurant with their mask on their chin rather than covering nose and mouth. Tables a little to close to one another for my comfort. Kitchen was waaayyy behind; our food took over 40+ minutes to come out. King crab app, although ordered hot was cold/lukewarm, and needed seasoning/salt. Short rib, worth the wait! We arrived 5 minutes earlier, checked in, had to wait, 10 min later hostess needed to be reminded of our reservation time in order to be seated.
Over-all it was ok, but needs some refinement, motivation, spunk, proper following of Covid protocol, and in a restaurant of this caliber I expected to see a manager around interacting with guests specially when your food is taking sooo long. Oh! and I always appreciate a restaurant with dimmed lights which in this case was missed.
Ivan, keep up the good work. You are an asset to Meat Market, and I hope they recognize that.
Great food, but way too pricey. For a party of 4, our bill was $530. And only two of us had one alcoholic beverage.
My boyfriend and I dined in here on Sunday March 28,2021. Dinner was very good. But the service could definitely be better. Especially spending that type of money. We waited about 15 mins before even being approached and once approached we waited another 15-20 mins for drinks. Dinner took about a hour to be served and the restaurant wasn’t hardly that busy.
Javier was a dream! He gave great service. The food was cooked well and delivered quickly to the table.
The Buffalo Ribeye was too tough to chew. Asked for medium, came well done on one side and rare through most of it. Halibut was very good. Service was very good.
My Favorite place to eat when I come
To Puerto Rico food is always amazing service is always at its best
Server, Jan, was extremely nice, helpful and attentive
Muy buen servicio y muy buena comida
This restaurant is awesome, from the hostess to the waiters the service is on point. The food is absolutely delicious and worth every penny you pay. Me and my friends enjoyed it tremendously.
The server was very good. Steak (prime ribeye) was a bit tough all though cooked correctly.
One of the best dinning experiences we have had. The food was excellent, the wine choices were stellar, & our waiter was fun, knowledgeable, and very attentive.
Food was great, butI was expecting a bit more expecting a more taste and flavor from the A5 Wagyu tomahawk steak.
The ambiance and service was amazing. Two of the four guest didn’t enjoy their food. The king crab leg was literally hard to swallow. One of my friends got sick from the ribeye. My sea bass and oysters were great as well as the truffle Mac and mushrooms.
The food was delicious. Well played and the meat temperature as requested.
Service can definitely improve . There were many servers walking around but not well trained to serve. For the price paid I would expect at least to serve us the wine.
Noise level -music- too high.
Service was ok , can’t say the same about our meals . Sides were good , cocktails and desserts were delicious, but my steak was very tough. I Ordered the wagyu strip and it was one of the toughest steaks I’ve ever had . The waitress saw me struggling to cut it and she brought me another knife without any improvement. She noticed my struggle and said that she was going to talk to the chef . I didn’t hear anything back from the kitchen . I probably won’t be back .
Had a nice premade Valentines Day menu. Food was really tasty and out waiter was super sweet and accommodating. First time visiting and highly recommend.
They changed their menu and have a great and balanced variety. Nice option for a special occasion.
Table wasn't ready, food took 4ever, drinks were terrible, service was worst. Cant say enough bad things about it. SO DISAPPOINTING
The food was bland. We received a blue steak when asked for medium rare and our shrimp and fish were over cooked.
We enjoyed our dinner very much and our server was awesome. Everything we tried was delicious, but the stars of the night were the truffle mash and the lobster risotto! I think may have been the best lobster risotto I’ve ever had! The steaks were delicious and cooked perfectly and the sea bass was great. But for me, it was all about that lobster risotto. Order it. Do it now.
Wonderful experience. The food and service were top notch.
Service was slow and disjointed, took almost 1.5 hours to get our entree. ordered the special - dry aged ribeye. For $65 it should have been perfect, instead was dry and flavorless. Appetizers were just okay.
Can’t understand how this place will stay in business if this is the typical experience.
The service was terrible. The food was good but over priced and the bottles of wine were actually more per bottle than if you ordered 5 individual glasses of the same wine. I wouldn’t recommend it.
The waiter was very attentive, we don't have nothing to complaint about his service. The food was tasty and was presented very nicely. Nevertheless, I called before hand to ask about the parking service and the hostess couldn't answer us. When we arrived they couldn't find our reservation (we had to show our email confirmation to assure them we indeed had a reservation with them).
The experience of the place was not bad but it could be better, good service, but there was no consistency in the flavor of the meat, in two cuts the seasoning of the meat was different and therefore the flavor, in the same cut I had two different terms rear and medium, but a place like this for the price I paid for this cannot happen, the wine was fine, I don't know if I would return I was not impressed.
First time at this restaurant - went because of the $39.00 menu special and wasn't disappointed. Great service and excellent food. Will definitely be coming back.
good value - great food, friendly service, modern style steak house
Buen ambiente. Carnes deliciosas. Buen servicio.
Amazing food, best service and cool ambiance. Will definitely be back!
Horrible experience. Service was awful. Had to asked the hostess who are server even was. Finally he showed up but nothing ever recovered. I did get my appetizer at the hour mark of our arrival but nothing after that. Asked for bread it but never came. Finally at the hour and fifteen minute mark the server said that it would still be another 10 minutes since a party of ten had come in right after us. Mind you everyone around also who came in after had been served and one table was all ready eating desert. We asked for a check but the manager said there was no charge and we left at the hour and fourty minute mark. Never would go crack!
Absolute wonderful service and creative amazing tasting food! Interesting and modern ambiance. A bit pricey but with that comes all the factors that make this place great!
Expected better service. The food quality was just ok. Nothing extraordinary for the price.
It was a great experience.
Service was lousy. Starting off, it took bout 10 minutes after we were seated to have a waitress come to the table, and upon asking for a beer, the waitress informed me that she did not know what beers the restaurant offered. The rest of the meal, we got a similar type of non-service. To then pay a hefty price for the food which was not bad but not memorable, with small portions. This is a restaurant I would not revisit in the future.
I would not return here. AWFUL management. VERY slow wait staff. Food was good but by the time we got it after asking again and again it was cold. Order put in wrong. WAYYYYYYY underwhelmed for $550. Many other amazing restaurants in San Juan. Find another!
