SAK-I at Royal Sonesta San Juan
Located in the main lobby, SAK-I is InterContinental San Juan’s new Asian fusion awe-inspiring restaurant. It was envisaged to delight the most refined palates through exotic interpretations of the most recognized oriental dishes, which fusion the serenity of Asia with the tropical flavors of the Latin cuisine.
SAK-I is a pioneer with the first specialized sake bar in Puerto Rico. It was created to offer and exclusive experience to those who are knowledgeable about sake and people who are willing to be seduced by this traditional Japanese beverage and SAK-I’s specialty cocktails made from this wine.
The restaurant is closed. Not sure why open table is taking reservations.
Meh. The service was very attentive and friendly. The food was just okay. The sushi offerings were strange -- mostly cooked and odd combinations (like beef and cream cheese!). I had a lobster roll that was short on lobster and long on rice. The best entree we had (and "best" according to our server) was a Mongolian beef that was reminiscent of Panda Express. I had a seafood/lemongrass medley that had a nice flavor but all the seafood was overcooked. We were so underwhelmed by the appetizers and entrees that even our kids passed on ordering dessert. Nothing was really bad; it just wasn't that good.
I'm vegan and was very grateful to the chef who was able to accommodate my dietary needs. Thank you!
We walked in on time for a reservation and were completely ignored by the staff for approximately 10 minutes. Finally flagged down a waitress who appeared to not care at all. We were walked to a table directly next to a loud kitchen area. The waitress was not friendly at all, took our drink order and came back later with the wrong drinks. After hearing smashing and banging from the kitchen, realizing we had the wrong drinks we tried to get the waitresses attention but she blatantly ignored us. Worst choice to spend time here, go anywhere else!
Food was very good but for a party of five our food came out one plate at a time with 10 minute wait between each
Service was very good, but overall the food was so so.
Not the greatest experience. While our waiters were very sweet and solicitous, we didn't have a clear picture of who was in charge, it took forever for things to come, and one of the two appetizers was completely forgotten, though we reminded them after the first app came and went with no sign. The food ranged from OK to not so good, with rolls being the best and the worst being the summer rolls, the pork buns (the buns themselves especially) just thick and heavy and bland, and the no-show pork dumplings. Additionally the place was completely empty, on a Saturday night. Frustrating, glum dining.
Wonderful dining experience.
Our server was willing and able to assist us in navigating through our first Sake experience.
Would definitely go again.
It was New Year's Eve and the staff seemed stressed. We had to wait 30 minutes to order and when our sushi came, it took 20 minutes to get soy sauce. The sushi was okay - not sure I'll be coming back, especially for the price.
Very disappointing and expensive meal. The food was mediocre and the service was especially poor. Would not go back again!
The calamari, sushi and chicharones were great! The fried rice was good but not on the same level as the rest of what we tasted.
Food was outstanding. Excellent from appetizers to entree. All fresh...
Food was very disappointing.
This was a great restaurant. I am vegan and I asked the waiter if broccoli could be added to the rice dish I selected and he said yes. A good amount was added and I was pleased.
Came here with my colleague for a quick lunch and was not disappointed. The food was good and the service was great. Their menu has some great options at a decent price. We did their lunch special for $9.99 and it was an awesome choice. Will be back soon.
Great place for any occasion, food was superb, service outstanding and the restaurant has a great ambiance and decor. The sushi is outstanding and you must try the bento boxes if you go there for lunch!! I cannot wait to return
Un servicio excelente, buenos precios y la comida estaba deliciosa en un ambiente super agradable. El Chef Elias muy amable vino a la mesa a explicar los platos. Definitivamente regresaremos.
