Buen servicio, pero la espera por la comida fue bastante, la carne tenía demasiado pimiento y muy salada. El plato de fetuccini con trufas cuesta $50 la porción no es justa y en sabor prácticamente leve. El pollo frito delicioso.

Simple foods done exceptionally well. Loved everything from the burrata to the steak! Slightly less traversed neighborhood from a tourism perspective, but a special find nonetheless

Wonderful experience at this cool little restaurant, away from the crowds in Condado and OSJ. Food was delicious — we had the hummus and mussels for appetizers, followed by the fried chicken entree. All were fantastic. Bread pudding dessert was also excellent. The bartender is a master mixologist, the cocktails were all very original — we watched him working and clearly he considers mixing an art form! Definitely check out this place for a change of pace from traditional PR cuisine (also excellent) and to support local restaurant scene. Finally, service was extremely friendly and attentive.

Beautiful place, delicious food, excellent service. I’m sure it will become one of my favorites. Try the bone marrow and the humus. The duck is fantastic!

Another excellent meal accompanied by warm service. One thing, though: please diversify the background music repertoire -- the sax-driven funk gets annoying after a while.

VERY bad service. My dinner group of five foodies agree on the common appreciation is one of the worst services. The rservation had a two hours time frame, the food took long enough to come out of the Kitchen and the time was running out & the waittress told us before bringing the food that we were not going to be able to get dessert. Then before finishing our dinner the waitresses rushed us out by taking unfinished plates and they intended to put the plates to-go. We couldn’t even finish bottles of wine/champagne. NO options were presented for a great proffessional dinner group to move to the bar or separate into smaller tables. Very bad service from the waittresses and worst treatment from the owner when the situation was brought up to her.

Your res was at 7PM. Our res policies are outlined when booking through OT, policies that are in place because of the situation our industry is currently in. Upon arriving at 7:17PM on a Friday, we reminded you that your table res was for 2hrs. Your guests continued to arrive, with your last guest arriving at 8:15PM, giving your group minimal time to enjoy their meal. Times are tough for restaurants and we should not pay the price because “professional diners” are unable to show up on time.

This is my second time and it did not disappoint. The food is delicious, the cocktails as well. And the service has always been very friendly, laid back, and inviting. We are happy to support or local business get back on their feet and we will be going again! Thank you Tay for such great service and suggestions.

From the greeting at the front door to paying as we left, this experience was top tier. The service was beyond perfect, the cocktails were quickly made and hand delivered by the bartender, and the food was so delicious.

We’re from Chicago and we used to live next to a 4 star Michelin restaurant that we frequent often. As soon as we got our food, we immediately compared it to our old favorite place. We couldn’t stop talking about how insanely tasty every single thing was. The portions were HUGE and the prices are almost, not enough?! We couldn’t believe how high end the whole experience was.

Had a great experience and couldn’t of been happier with the meal.

Everything was excellent! We had the ricotta gnocchi, the beet hummus, burrata mousse and creme brulee. All were superb. A friend ordered the fried chicken, truffle mash and crispy brussel sprouts and she loved it.

The restaurant is very beautiful & zen. Our server, Tay, was friendly & knowledgeable about both the food & wine selections. Our dinner was served very promptly. The portions were generous & the food was delicious including the cream brûlée. The bartender made a very good limoncello mule drink - overall amazing.

The food was absolutely amazing one of the best restaurants in puerto rico. The fried chicken was amazing but the duck fried rice was legendary. The overall flavor of everything was just outstanding. Wish we had more options as good as this in puerto rico. I loved it
