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 +
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 .
my first time, great experience... highly recommended
Awesome place for Valentines dinner.
Wine list good!
Will definitely come back soon!
Perfect! The food was excellent and the service top notch.
Food and service are exceptional, recommended for special occasions. I ordered a salmon that its slow cooked perfectly. My wife ordered duck breast and it was very tender. Tasting menu is a better value. Only caveat it is expensive.
Outstanding, expensive; but good ambiance and excellent service.
For the amount of money paid the food was scarce. We like Bottles in Guaynabo
there was plenty amount of food for example. It didn't satisfy my expectation.
This is one the best fining dining restaurants in Puerto Rico. We have been to this place many times. The food is amazing and the chef is always looking for ways to impress a discerning palate.
However, in the last three or four times that we have visited this restaurant, we have had problems with the bill. The restaurant had overcharged us. Either they include the tip (which it's not usually included) without informing us (and accepting an extra 20%) or they had included charges of dishes or drinks that didn't apply.The dining is exceptional, but the bill issue has left a sour taste in our mouth at the end of the experience.
My advice: Check the bill carefully. We hope the restaurant fixes this situation. We don't think that we can afford to face another bad experience with the bill. We have been returning for the food, but it gives us a stomach ache dealing with issues of the bill that we don't want to face again, especially if you go out to have a good time and you're paying a significant bit of money to enjoy the experience.
We went for my husbands birthday the ambience was great and very good service. I found it a bit too expensive for what you get. They announce a 3 course dinner for $60 and every plate has a supplement charge so at the end there is no such $60 fixed menu.
Simply outstanding! Food was incredible, service impecable
Elegant and spotless place to have dinner . Excellent Service
Food was ok,overpriced and the server couldn’t get my check right. Up charges for the prix fixe menu were not clear. Would never go back.
Simple... excellent! As always! Thank you.
I ordered the chef’s tasting menu with wine pairing. Everything was delicious. Service was fantastic.
Was excited to hear 1919 had re-opened after the devastating hurricane and was thrilled to be back. The food was fresh and full of flavor along with the excellent service. The cocktails were great and the waiter was helpful with substituting ingredients. Highly recommend for food, ambiance and wonderful staff!
Excellent food and service. Nicely prepared for our dining pleasure, with nothing “pre-processed”.
This is a beautiful restaurant with an imaginative recreation of local dishes and ADN outstanding desert menu.
We went for a birthday celebration and had a great time... Super attentive staff, excellent food and very warm decor made for a very special evening.
Yet again, a wonderful night of fine dining and excellent service. The best! When you visit repeatedly and it never wavers or disappoints, you have the BEST. Happy 2018, 1919!!!
Absolutely wonderful! The food here is so good; the room is beautiful; the service is excellent. Everything is perfect despite the shortages of many items in Puerto Rico due to the hurricane. The creativity of the chef is unequaled. So if you're lucky enough to be in San Juan, and enjoy fine food, just make this the place for dinner.
One of the best restaurants I have eaten at any where I have ever travelled! I had a fantastic New Year’s Eve dining experience. Amazing.
Amazing New years eve special dinner with family. The 1919 has that old money charm. The next door bar has nice quite music and variety of cocktails. Al the end of dinner manager gave us parting gift. Nice gesture.
Food was good
There are hidden fees when you do the Pre-fix menu that the waiter does not explain nor it’s explained in the menu. So we felt confused. The main waiter was condescending when asked about it. Otherwise service was good.
It was great! From appetizer to dessert! Great ingredients, unexpected combinations and perfect execution. And... leave room for the sweets. The pastry chef is a genius!
All this accompanied by unparalleled service. This is definitely the best restaurant in PR and one of the best in the US.
This is the by far one of the best dinners i have ever had. The Xmas menu was awesome !
I went on Xmas Eve and the $100 menu per person was too expensive for what we got. It’s a very fine dining place but the food was not that impressive in relation to the cost. A 20% gratuity was included without asking.
Great service, as usual. Amazing “cochinillo”... cooked to perfection. Good food, great time, excellent service!!
Excellent restaurant for fine dining. Limited but savory menu. Reasonable prices, though not cheap.
1919 was all I expected and then some. Presentation of food and service was outstanding. Look forward to visiting San Juan again and especially the Vanderbilt and 1919.
VERY Disappointing Meal and Experience
Lugar elegante clásico moderno, muy buena atención de todo el personal, la comida exquisita, buena selección de vinos.
