Great ambiance 😍❤️😍
First time I come here and loved it. A great ambiance, variety of drinks, food and appetizers. I ate a mofongo with shrimps in a garlic sauce and it was delicious. Raul was a gem server and very attentive. Will be coming back!

La acústica del lugar no sirve, no hay forma de tener una velada tranquila por el ruido. El servicio no es el mejor, por el precio deben esforzarse más. La vista de noche es hermosa y la coctelería muy buena. La comida está OK.

The restaurant looks nice and the food was ok but the service needs improvement rush.
The server was lost and didn’t take care of us.
We have to ask for water and our glass was always empty. At the end we serve the wine ourself. The chocolate cake wasn’t fresh at all.

This restaurant start ok when open but with the time is going down the hill. I give them two month of life.

Great place, food and service needs work. My wife ordered a Caesars Salad and the dressing was horrible, I ordered a skirt steak and the Chimichurri wasn’t made at the restaurant. Very informal service for such an expensive restaurant. Two people dinner no appetizers, on moderate bottle of wine, the tab was $180. Outrageous for that amount you can get a better restaurant. Sorry guys I don’t see a future in this place.

Located at the top of Popular Center in the financial district, it has the best city view in all of San Juan! Food is excellent. Prices are reasonable. Can you ask for more?

We couldn’t find our waiter half the time. The food took forever. Over 30 mins. We had to be somewhere so we had to take it home. The mofongo was dry. And they forgot my husband’s 2 sides. Very disappointed.

Solo lo recomendaria para un Happy Hour. Pero para cenar lo pensaria recomendarlo. Entiendo que es demasiado cara para lo que sirven y la calidad de la comida no es la major.

The mashed potatoes were cold, sliders were overcooked and the bacon was burnt. It was loud. The food wasn’t conmensurate with the price. The assistant to the waiter was nice but the waitress lacked strong customer service skills.

Fue mi 3ra o 4ta visita. La comida es agradable, los tragos, demasiado caros para tan poquita cantidad.
Para los precios que cobran, deberían tener manteles en las mesas.
El ambiente es demasiado informal para un lugar tan caro. Se debe desalentar que los clientes lleguen en chancletas y camisetas ("tee shirts"), algunos con gorra!
No es cuestión de regresar a los tiempos del Banker'sClub, que exigía saco y corbata, pero no les ayuda proyectar tanta informalidad.

Spectacular view. Excellent service. Great location. Amazing food. All in all, it has everything to be a great restaurant. However, I'd like it if they could isolate the sounds from the bar area more, using curtains, etc. Not a huge amount of noise, but it can get on the nerves. But it will still garner 5 stars from me.

Twice in two weeks, the meat was rare when I asked well done the first time (it was pork), and rare and bloody when I asked medium well/slightly pink in the center the second time.

Why is it that this restaurant doesn't serve bread and butter???

Word is spreading out among friends and coworkers about poor service, poor attention to details, and high prices for what you get...

We had a reservation for 7:15 we got seated at 8:30, they were clearly overbooked and had multiple events occurring at the same time. The food was sub par, lacking in flavor and presentation and the ambience was lacking. It was marketed as a hip trendy spot, but it was overrun with young families with lots of children. Overall it felt cheap and overhyped.

It felt like any stereotypical chain restaurant with a Puerto Rican name and dim lighting.
