Food was amazing. That said, reservation was for 9:30pm and we didnt get seating until 10:05pm

We were seated at 9:30 and ordered a bottle of wine and 2 dishes to share among 3 people. We told our waitress those dishes were starters and that we wanted to order more later. She never told us the kitchen closes at 10. So when we tried to order more food at about 10:05 she told us “sorry it is too late and you should have known because it is stated in the Open Table platform”. I think the staff should have communicated the time for last call as soon as we were seated and not tell us we should have read it on Open Table. Aside from the inadequate communication, the salad and the gnocchi were delicious.

Todo muy bueno. La atención en la mesa fue buena gracias a “Tai” y compañía. Las albondigas de cordero un poco secas pero la salsa y complementos la mejoraron. El plato de “ñoquis” con osso bucco fuera de serie. Y el postre de limon (key lime pie) muy bueno. Los tragos bien presentados y con buenas mezclas, muy buen sabor y balance. El equipo de trabajo en general muy accesible y dispuesto.

Food is a little pricey but not out of line for the quality you receive. Our waiter Alex was very professional. The specialty cocktails were very interesting. All in all a great experience. Highly recommended.

This was our fourth visit. we are not from Puerto Rico but come frequently and last time we ate at Prole twice.
The bartenders are creative and skilled. Loved dining at the bar.
Good well prepared and delicious. Kale salad with apples is heaven. My husband loves the bone marrow.
Because our visits to PR are staggered we tend to order the same dishes- the fried chicken and the steak and we share, along with the Brussels sprouts. I write few reviews but felt PROLE deserved our feedback.

The restaurant is very pretty but it doesn't mitigate sound enough. The food was good but sometimes, like the pumpkin rissotto, it was excessively peppery. The mahi mahi was delicious. We missed a good dessert that wasn't what every other restaurant serves. The service was excellent and the prices of the wines, for example, were quite reasonable. The food also.

Excellent food and service. A great dinning experience. Looking forward for a second visit to try new dishes. High prices when compared to similar restaurants around San Juan area but the experience make it worth every penny.

We visited Prole again but this time we sat at the bar. Great idea. The bar is super wide and comfortable to have dinner and gives you the opportunity to share the experience of a passionate and creative mixology. Try the Mango Mule. For dinner we ordered the crostini with smoked duck and the pasta with osobuco. Delicious. This place besides offering excellent food is extremely fun. We will return.

Once again, AMAZING FOOD snd AMBIANCE! Loved the Ossobuco gnocchi, rodaballo and polenta, brussels sprouts, burrata and of course lobo domesticado! PROLE is now on my top five list of must eat restaurants in Puerto Rico!

Prole es un rest con muy buena comida en un lugar sin pretensiones.
El valor de los platos es un poco alto para la cantidad de las porciones y sobre todo por los acompañantes que sirven.A todo le ponen majados de viandas que es lo más barato que existe en estos momentos.
Pero reitero,la comida vale la pena.

This is my second time visiting Prole. The food is amazing (and that comes from a very picky vegetarian eater). Wine selection is very good but do yourself a favor and order a lobo domesticado as soon as you walk in; it is delicious! Will definitely visit again and again and again.

Everything was excellent. Servers were very attentive and friendly. My wife ordered the fish, halibut, with risotto and a honey sauce that was delicious. I ordered the veal chop, a very generous serving I must say, that was also outstanding and cooked to perfection. Thank you PROLE for a great time!

Great service! Amazing desserts specially the bread custard and the Aulet ice creams to die for. Small menu and no halibut that night but great burrata for appetizer and good quality steak. Will be back!

Tai once again killed it! Remembering what my husband likes to drink before his meal was truly special! Keep up the good work Prole Team- it’s not easy because you can’t please EVERYONE! But when you please the MOST- its all worth it!!!

Loved it! Nice ambiance, food was VERY good, drinks creative and awesome. The welcome and service was amazing by Tay who gave us great recommendations and descriptions of food and drinks which were super helpful. And don’t miss the desserts which are as creative as tasty as the drinksOur group was the last one to leave and we never felt pressured....Tay even helped getting a picture of us all. WOULD DEFINITELY GO THERE AGAIN!

This is an outstanding place. It has become one of my favorite restaurants in San Juan. Not only for he food and great cocktails and wines but for the unique service. We had a wonderful experience with Tay. She explained the dishes, gave us suggestions and was a great hostess. We started with the kale salad. And then, shared the squid linguini, the duck and the chicken. Wow!!!
This is my second time here and will reserve again next week. Love it.

Prole is a great new restaurant where the Santurce and Miramar neighborhoods meet. The cocktails, entrees, and desserts were all delicious. The risotto and the bread pudding were particularly delicious. The waitstaff was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. Bring friends, dates, and family here, and then bring them back.
