This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - The local scene here is as hot as the wood-fired grill in the kitchen. Carnivores go for the parrillada, a savory selection of chorizo, pork tenderloin, short ribs, sweetbreads, and blood sausage (the faint of heart can opt for the fresh grilled vegetables).

I ordered rib eye. What I got was cold and tasteless. Will not recommend.

Have been to Ummo many times when we visit Puerto Rico. The food, luckily, has remained outstanding in every aspect, including the variety on the menu. On this occasion, the restaurant looked "tired," we were not greeted at the door or podium, we had to walk into the dining room to get any attention (we were a party of 6); and the service was quite poor. On two occasions I had to get up from my table to seek service. Not good. We have other good steakhouses to choose from.

As a place that holds it self out as a steakhouse you would think the chef would be able to grill a steak. Not so. I ordered a rib eye steak, medium rare and it served at least medium-well. I sent it back and the second try was rare, I mean rare...refrigerator cold in the middle. I asked for it to be grilled a little longer.... it came back (about 15 minutes later) still cold in the middle. OK, enough for me...I did not eat dinner. Prices were also a little high for what you got, or in my case, what I should have got. If you are looking for a steak in San Juan go to Morton's. Yes its a chain but at least you know what you are going to get.

This is in our neighborhood and when we want meat, this is the place to go! My wife and I love the friendly and attentive service. We always sit outside as the air conditioning inside is Arctic. The meat is cooked over a grill and is flavored perfectly. We usually split either the skirt steak or the larger filet. It is so tender that it melts in your mouth. We like the creamed spinach and pair it with a potato choice.

We were looking for a very good steakhouse while we were vacationing in Puerto Rico and chose Ummo because of its TripAdvisor rating. Now I wish we hadn't because my ribeye wasn't what I expected, even though it was recommended by the hostess. My ribeye was only about 1/2 inch thick and very undercooked! I had to send it back twice to bring it to my request of medium rare. And it was very tough. My wife's filet was just ok and neither was worth the price charged.
I do not recommend this restaurant.

I've been to Ummo before, but it's been awhile. Wasn't as busy as past visits but it was Easter Sunday so a lot of people were probably eating at home with family. Nice server/hostess. Filet was better than the porterhouse. Wine was great (house Malbec). I would go again.

Fantastic place, with alot of nice dishes. Nice and exciting entrees, very nice steaks on grill. Nice to sit outside. Nice waiter. We have been eating here 5 times.
Sad that they never change the menu.

Service well intended but spotty at best. Ambience pleasant enough but nothing to write home about. We had fairly low expectations for the steak but my small skirt steak was truly delicious (and we just returned from Argentina!) Sides were not quite as appealing. If you are feeling carnivorous in San Juan, this is not a bad choice.

Arrived in San Juan earlier in the day and had read great things about Ummo Argentinean Grill. Expected to have great meats and disappointed to have a steak that was no more than a quarter inch thick. It appeared we dined too early - went at 7:30pm and outdoor dining had just one other couple. As we were leaving saw the restaurant fill up however, it seems like this was a place for younger adults looking for music, dance and Tapas.

Our group wanted the surf and turf platter for four but the restaurant was out of lobster and octopus. We asked if we could substitute for other items on the menu that we wanted and they were more than happy to do exactly what we wanted. We enjoyed it emmensly that we ordered seconds and asked to throw in some more meat because we were enjoying it soo much and still hungry. The grilled vegetable platter was also good. The service was excellent.

Ummo has a great selection of meat dishes, and most of them taste wonderful. Our server left us alone for very long periods of time, which was annoying, but the food made up for it. The prices are high but not exorbitant.

This is our second visit and we liked our experience even more. If you are staying at the Marriott, it is a 5 minute walk. Ask to sit outside as it is quite loud inside.

One steak was so tough I couldn't eat it. The rest was just mediocre.

Delicious food. Ok service. No wine list. Instead they ask you about "the grape you like" then the waiter brings three bottles to the table for you to pick; not even a teste. We had to do Vivino to decide. They could do better.

We visit Ummo each time we visit PR. This experience was wonderful. Although the server was a little too interested in the soccer match on the tv over the bar, the food was superb. Try the Gnocchi (any of them) they are delicious.

The food was our best of the week at Ummo. Something for everyone and the grilled vegetables were awesome.
