Wines are over priced, about 4x
The food was cold and the service was slow. The buffet was unappealing and although we had made a previous reservation, a tanle was not reserved for us. The buffet food was cold and overall bad.
EXELNTE PARA UNA NOCHE ROMANTICA. SERVICIO DE EXELENCIA Y CALIDAD EN SUS PLATOS
This delicious fine dining restaurant does not require to play tropical or dancing music. It is not adequate.
Food is Ok, not remarkable.
Amazing ambience and first class service. I was unimpressed with the beer list, and our waiter offered to go to the beach bar at the hotel and grab me a couple Belgian ales. That’s incredible service. The food was very, very good - just a notch below some of the best food we’ve had in NYC. I definitely recommend 1919 for date night or a special occasion.
First, we ordered the octopus appetizer which contained a large live spider, the plate was changed but the meal not replaced.
Second, the steamed muscles were dry, and the fish dishes not particularly good (perhaps not fresh)
Third, the bill had a $100 mistake, intentional or non-intentional, it is an unpleasant overlook on behalf of the restaurant
Exelente combinaciòn de sabores con ingredientes frescos de la Isla e importados..Comida creativa,ambiente elegante,muy linda la decoraciòn.
Servicio eficiente y amable,sin ser cargosos.
Mi ùnica crítica es el alto precio de la lista de vinos.
We loved the food (we chose the pre fixe menu) and the service was great. They were attentive and friendly. The website was misleading on the dress code (e.g. dressy shorts were not appropriate) and we were underdress and "banished" to the bar area. Turned out to be better as there was a DJ in the bar area.
I was looking for somewhere special for my boyfriend's birthday and a friend recommended this spot. It did not disappoint. The ambience is amazing and you get that wow factor when you step in. The service was fantastic and the food, sooo good. We went for the set 3 course menu. It's a great place for a special occasion.
The food at this restaurant was really good; however the service could use some improvement. My husband and I recently stayed at Vanderbilt Condado to celebrate our Anniversary. Overall the service was ok, but the server did mess up our appetizer order. The wrong appetizer was brought out for me, and apparently the correct appetiser took a while to make, which resulted in my husband eating for 10 minutes while his appetizer got cold. I finally talked him into going ahead without me, but then when mine finally came out he just had to sit there and watch me eat.
The main course went well and the food was good. Then when they brought out dessert, I saw they had written on the plate in chocolate. They would have gotten accolades for this gesture, however, they wrote “Happy Birthday” instead of Happy Anniversary.
Overall, the experience wasn’t horrible but I expected much much more from a restaurant at the Vanderbilt hotel.
excellent presentation of the meal, outstanding service.
Great ambiance, excellent food and dining experience, excellent service and attention. The service team is excellent. A bit overpriced but the place and service and food makes it worth it.
Do not eat here. We started our dining experience by ordering a bottle of sparkling wine. After the first course was served the wine never came and when I said something to the waiter he gave me a glass of white wine from the same country but wasn’t the bottle of sparkling wine I ordered. The waiter then tells me they are out of the bottle of sparkling wind I ordered which was not true because the wine sommelier of the restaurant said it was in stock which indicated that either the waiter ill informed or even worse too lazy to ask.
After this my fellow diner ordered the tasting menu with the “prestige” wine pairing which is $120 for the wine alone. The waiter then proceeds to pour him a glass of Duckhorn Chardonnay. As a wine sommelier of a fine dining restaurant I know this wine would never be served or labeled as a “prestige” wine and when I asked the sommelier about this he admitted that the waiter did not pour the correct wine. What upset me the most about this dining experience is that the waiters and managers said this was all miscommunications between the service staff when point blank it was them dropping the ball. I always tell my restaurant staff to be real, be knowledgeable, and to never fake it. For a restaurant that we spent $1,000 between four people and with the accolades that were advertised I would expect the same. If you want a great dining experience go to Marmalade. This place could learn a thing or two on how to have a knowledgeable staff with props wine service from them.
Not as good as last month. Disappointing actually. Surly heavy set man at door pretty nasty. Not a good way to start an evening of a 3 hour tasting menu $500 meal. The courses fell short this time. Not certain if the chef was even in the kitchen the evening we dined. Like last month a 40 minute lull between fourth and fifth course. Couldn’t wait to get out of there.
This was an outstanding meal that was unexpected in quality. Our snapper and halibut entrees were perfectly cooked. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Un lugar excelente para pasar una velada en pareja. La atención es de primera. Los platos exquisitos.
Fabulous food. Very special experience. Lots of special touches.
We love this hotel and this restaurant. Fine dining the way I like it. Attentive service without being too stuffy. The food is elegant and approachable. Fresh flavors, beautiful presentation and a thoughtful, complete wine list. Don't skip dessert. They are good too, even the ice cream.
Service was very rushed. We even commented on it and they continued to rush us.
The arrival experience and service throughout the meal was spectacular. The food was some of the best that I have tasted on the Island after living here for 12 years and being in the hospitality industry. The Culinary team maybe a little heavy handed in seasoning but, apart from that, amazing food experience. The price puts pressure on the value of the meal but as far as experiences go in San Juan, it is very difficult to beat.
Awesome! Ivan and William were excellent hosts.
Food was superb
Excellent metre di and service
Pleasant experience in a glamorous environment!!!
Over all, this is my favorite restaurant for special occasions.
Service was outstanding and the food was great and very creative. I will return again in a heartbeat
We went for our wedding anniversary and had a memorable experience. The food quality is top notch from our experience. You may note that we are two vegetarian foodies that love the art of cooking, so this place definitely appealed to us.
We ate here for dinner. The ambience was chill and and the decor was beautiful. The service was amazing. Everyone was very on top of things and friendly. The food was amazing we did the prefixed meals and got the lobster sliders which were delicious, the tuna tartare was amazing and the duck breast which was also amazing. We had the brownie for dessert. It’s more of a dark chocolate brownie. Pretty good but very rich so I couldn’t eat the whole thing. Right before the brown came out they gave us a sample of the panna cotta dessert which was absolutely delicious. I’d suggest that as your dessert. As we walk out they gave us a banana nut bread to go and it was very moist and delicious. Overall 5 stars +
Great service from start to finish, fab food, wine to match.
Fantastic service and beautiful decor. The food was sublime!
Excellent service and very friendly staff. It’s not cheap, but if you appreciate good food and service then you should treat yourself
Excellent food, service and ambiance... good for special occasions.. adult environmnet..had the Chef’s Table
Amazing. Did the 7 course chef tasting. One of the best meals I’ve had.
The best restaurant in Puerto Rico hands down!
Chef Cuevas is a magician.
We did the chef’s menu and every one of the 6 courses was a surprise. We did ours with no carbs and there was no disappointment! Even the salmon was delicious and I HATE fish, especially salmon. Everything was super fresh and prepared and presented so beautifully. Perfect combination of flavors, where I could still taste each individual flavor. And I like be combinations of tender meat with creamy and crunchy. Will only order the 6 course chef’s menu ever again!
I have visited this place previously, unfortunately on this occasion was presented with a prefixed 5 course (only option) that was not worth the $130 per person charge. Also, was offered a wine pairing at $100 per person that was more a wine tasting because of the amount of wine on each option. I will need to reconsider future visits if this continues.
Excelent food but small amount for the value. Good Ambience .
