Food and service were amazing
Stellar service, super organized reservation system, wonderful ambiance and most importantly, food to die for. We literally had the best tasting food we ever ate. And icing on the cake, their team sang happy birthday to my beautiful wife. I wish I could give them 11 stars!
Food was excellent. Very loud environment. Service was attentive.
Went there to celebrate our fourth anniversary, since we hadd been there on our very first date. The place was packed on a Wednesday. Coincidence has it we ended up in the same table! -- All food that was served was excellent. We ordered a bottle of champagne. Service was very good also. The goat cheese quesadilla with honey was spectacular! The pastel was also VERY good! One thing to improve is the entrance to the place, as there is no roof while you wait to be let inside. It was raining when we got there, and we were getting wet while the person at the front door held us outside while he validated our reservation. Our reservation was due in 7 minutes... He should have let us in, as a courtesy, while he checked our reservation status. Other than that, we will be happy to return any time. Recommended 100%.
Our third visit to this restaurant (our second visit was a total disaster due to bad food and horrible service) but we decided to give it a last chance. This time we were blown away by the quality and quantity of the food. Our main dish was the angus Filet mignon with corn rice, everything perfectly cooked and presented. Thanks to Gabriel for the excellent service. Overall the service was topnotch. The only negative point was the noise inside the estaurant.
Sea bass, filet, wine - all fantastic
Tuna taco and goat cheese truffle oil quesadillas appetizers were excellent. Main dish snapper was nothing special.
Our server Umberto was phenomenal! Service was exceptional and the food was on point. Definitely recommend the skirt steak and avocado salad!
Fabulous food and service!
Our experience at Santaella started off perfectly: our table was ready within minutes of arriving, the service was attentive and fast. Our drinks and appetizers came out within a good timeframe, the server cleared the table and told us our entrees will be along shortly, then… nothing. For about 45 minutes we didn’t receive our entrees and the waiter went from being readily available to MIA. Our drinks were empty, not once did anyone come by during the whole 45+ minutes that we waited for our entrees. When our food finally came they left off one of the key components of the dish, i had to flag down the waiter who had to go back to the kitchen, eventually returning with a substitute item because they had run out. What happened to the fantastic service??!! The change in service ruined the overall experience a bit, as I would’ve ordered another drink and wouldn’t have noticed the delay to receive entrees had the service been better. For what it’s worth, the cocktails are fantastic and the food, albeit pricy, is good. Very nice ambiance as well.
Snapper was good. Tuna crudo and ceviche were mediocre, too much sauce and could not taste fish. Ceviche full of sweet orange juice taste. Overpriced and service could be improved.
Great as always. It's customer service never lets you down. The food was superb. And the cocktails very refreshing without being overwhelmingly strong.
Santaella never disappoints! Food and drinks are always spot on. The staff are awesome, they always make sure you have a wonderful time!
Santaella is always excellent
Thank you for making my niece’s birthday so special. The food and service were incredible.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. We were entertaining a client and the energy of the restaurant was very inviting. But it may have been a little too loud for business talk. The service was great and the food was exceptional! And the drinks were also amazing!
We will return in January. A fantastic dining experience
Amazing ! I love this place
Food was very good but very long wait between appetizers and entrees. Great cocktails. Would recommend but budget 90 mins w waits. Maybe this was just an off night.
The place is great! the food amazing! the waiter we had was a complete disaster, bossing us around, treating us badly and being insolent with us.
I cannot believe that such a person could be working at such a beautiful place. He emphasized so much in taking the orders for each person in strict military order of seating arrangement and then when the food arrived nobody knew where each dish went, a complete disaster of a waiter. When I asked him to take the order of my guest (a visitor from overseas) first before mine he told me that i had to give him my order first and I requested him to please be so kind to take my friends order first because I was not ready yet, he emphasized that I should be ready because he had no time to wait and he could not advance with the next person because I was not ready. I did not reply to him as I should because my family was there but for sure this is not the kind of person you need to be serving you in your restaurant.
Lunch was a great experience. Had previously dined and enjoyed the ambiance so much more at lunchtime. Unlike our dinner experience, lunch was relaxing, quiet, with a pleasant crowd and service was very friendly and attentive. We ordered different appetizers to share and all of them of them where delicious. The chicken popcorn and alcapurrias with crab are highly recommended.
The ambience is out of this world and the food is divine!
Apart from the garlic shrimp, which was salty, everything else was delicious. Too expensive however.
As always, dinner and cocktails were amazing. Whenever we vacation in San Juan it’s a must! We were back for the first time in 2 years due to Covid and it was wonderful!
Honestly one of the best 10 meals I have had in my life.
First time here and would definitely recommend this place to anyone stopping in San Juan. You would never guess that this place is there since it’a right next to La Placita. Amazing vibe, very laid back and chill. The food was phenomenal. I’m still craving the octopus and the drinks where good too!! I had the parchita. The service was great as well! Very friendly and attentive. Making sure I visit again the next time I come to Puerto Rico.
Great food. Pity kitchen closed early at 10.30pm and we were rushed.
Get the goat cheese quesadilla! Everything is delicious.
Really fantastic. A must in San Juan without being too pretentious, just perfect. The quesadilla is something very special, a meal itself and rich, but unforgettable. And of course the drinks, the bar seating really is seats to fine elaborate cocktail making.
Delicious food with excellent service. Very consistent with the quality of food. Loved it!!
IT wasy my husband bday .. it’s was very nice ❤️❤️
Incredible dining experience. Can’t wait to go back.
The place is beautiful, the service super nice and the food is amazing
Nice ambiance but very loud. Nice, not exceptional food. Good not exceptional service. They automatically charged 18% for tip for a party of three. Good service but not exceptional. The printout of the ticket did not match what we paid, but we were tired and with no strength to argue about the ticket.
