Marmalade Restaurant & Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews

Our server Cat was phenomenal! So knowledgeable on the food and wine pairing and she took the time to give us special stories to go along with each pairing. This is not just a job for her but a passion and it shows! The food was exceptional, we did the 5 course tasting and wine pairing and the portions were perfect. The white bean soup is a must! Each dish was better than the next. You can not go wrong with anything on the menu. We were there celebrating my fiancé's birthday and they made our time there special. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are in Old San Juan!

I heard this was one of the best restaurants in PR so I made Valentine's Day reservations several days before flying to the island...boy am I glad I did. The restaurant was beautiful, the food was amazingly delicious, but what made the night exceptional was the service. My fiancé and I had the most wonderful and romantic Valentine's Day dinner that will not be forgotten and will be extremely difficult to beat.

I treated my husband here for his birthday and he described it as the best meal he ever had! Amazing service, ambience and food preparation but most importantly taste- from the popcorn shrimp appetizer to the gnocchi with short rib, lobster risotto, beef tenderloin and notably both desserts we indulged in ( choco-L8 & banana butterscotch bread pudding), the attention to detail was impeccable for food & service! Thank you for such a memorable dining experience during our vacation. We will certainly return during our next trip to PR!

this place is out of this world! one of the most fun, delicious meals we have ever had! it is a tasting menu, so prices are a little higher but so so worth it- especially for a romantic dinner or event. their dedication to detail and thoughtfulness about every step of the meal was abundantly clear. really can't say enough good things about marmalade!!! we will def go back again and may even plan a trip just so we can! :)

Rate #1 in San Juan for a reason! The service and food were amazing! " tasting" menus was much larger than just a taste. The 4 course option was more than enough! I left stuffed! Everything was so good that choosing just a few was a challenge! Enjoy! Highly recommend!

What a wonderful evening! Great food, creative plates, and stellar service! Chef Peter, who is quite a laid back man, came out to introduce himself and check on tables. They offer many fresh and local ingredients as well as a number of vegetarian options. And the dessert?! Now I'm just looking for an excuse to go back soon! Thanks again!

We visited this restaurant after it was recommended by a friend. We were delighted with the service, the food quality and presentation, and the atmosphere of the venue. We would recommend Marmalade to anyone visiting San Juan who enjoys fine dining.

The food was magnificent. Service was informative, friendly, prompt and professional. We had 5 courses with wine pairing. Every bite was delicious, but we were a little tipsy when done. I'd recommend highly to anyone looking for a fine dining experience in Puerto Rico.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience! The food and service were both outstanding. The tastes were sublime and our server, Craig, tended to our every need and request perfectly. We loved him and your restaurant!

I cannot say enough positive things about this restaurant. The food was absolutely incredible - specific dishes of note are the white bean soup and the popcorn shrimp. The service was great and I love that the chef comes out and about through the dining room. The chef himself came to our table and explained the special of the night. The sangria was also very good and the bread pudding dessert was amazing. Would overwhelmingly recommend this restaurant!

Amazing Food and talented Chef /staff. The Chef personally came to our table to greet us and to discuss the menu options with us. The chef urged us to pick items ourselves and told us that if there was anything that he felt we should try he would personally add it to our tasting. Let me just say, we were not disappointed in our choices or his additions! Lastly, I highly recommend ordering the tastings with the wine pairing as they enhanced the experience so much more. Thank you Marmalade for a wonderful dinner!

The white bean soup is the best soup I have ever had. The meal overall was utterly outstanding. The wine pairings were also excellent. If you're accustomed to fine dining in big international cities, the prices are extraordinarily low.

Epicurean's Delight! There should be more than 5 stars for this fine dining experience, it was pure ecstasy. Reservations are a must. Plan on spending time enjoying your visit, you'll need to & they will not rush you. The staff are like family & make you feel like family as well. All are extremely knowledgeable in all areas: cocktails, wines, the ingredients and inspiration of the dishes. The menu is creative to the point of genius. I recommend checking the menu on-line in advance, we did & could barely narrow down to 3 items in each section towards a 4 course meal. Upon arrival we enjoyed a specialty cocktail that was superb, the "Global Warming" started the evening adventure of excellence. The décor is calm, glamourous, cozy & elegant with a great vibe & nice music; it was easy to converse. Chef Peter visited w/ us & described specials not listed (of course we ordered them & WOW). They offer a wine pairing for each item & I highly recommend that- we were blown away. Our choices were, some light but most "decadent" & wish we had room for more- we left perfectly full. It was my birthday, rose petals were part of the table setting & candle on dessert for an added personal touch. My husband & I agreed that in our entire lives, this was our best gastronomical dining experience. If you enjoy unique, elevated gourmet dining then Marmalade is Heaven in the equally wonderful surroundings of Old San Juan. Cheers and Bon Appetit!

Everything was on point. Coral, our server, could not have been any more knowledgeable of the wines, food and pairings. She is at the top of our greatest server list!!! The executive chef/owner came out and we had a lovely conversation about the restaurant and San Juan, in general. The experience was second to none.

Marmalade is the best restaurant in Puerto Rico. The service is spectacular, the restaurant is beautiful, and the food is delicious. Our waitress, Charlotte, recommended a perfect wine to go with our food. Their white bean truffle soup was fabulous as was the black truffle pasta and duck. Those were our favorites, but the entire 5 course tasting menu was great. We will return in March before we go back to NY, where we live.

You should definitely eat here in the heart of Old San Juan and pardon my quibbles below. First off, the service was wonderful, attentive and not overbearing. The main room was handsome, creative and not overdone. Noise level was normal with a full room. They don't pack you in. The front bar area is also quite modern looking with a long bar and lounge area for those who can't score a table in the main room. Menu has a huge number of options, so when I eat here again I will avoid my 'quibble' dishes and taste something new.
We each got the 6-course tasting menu which overall is worth 4 stars, in my opinion. Keep in mind that an $89 tasting menu amounts to about $15/course.
I had the popcorn shrimp expecting some gourmet variation of the breaded things we've all had at some time in our youth. While they were tasty, there were only two, however, but were broiled to perfection (no 'popcorn' coating). There were seven kernels of pop corn on the dish serving no purpose whatsoever. Not what I was expecting. My partner had the beet salad, which came with a few thin beet slices and some micro greens. Nothing more. Again, curiously unimaginative for this price range.
Things got much better though. Between us we had the snapper ceviche and yellow tail starters, bean soup, chickpea 'sausage', rabbit garganelli (very rich and large portion), halibut, lobster risotto and lamb all of which were very good to excellent and competently prepared. Desserts were great.
My only quibble is that, again for this price range and after having eaten at venues with unequivocally spectacular 5-star tasting menus, I would expect more imagination and unique ingredients/garnishes on the plate and more of a sense that I couldn't possibly make any of this at home.
I realize that 'Value' is a relative thing and that this area is very touristy and gets a lot of cruise people with disposable income. As I have been saying, however, I hope they up their game because I will be back!

Eating at marmalade was a great experience. The best meal I have ever had. Our waitress, Charlotte, was charming and did a wonderful job explaining the diverse menu. The best part was when Chef Peter took the time to pay special attention to us.

My wife and I have been to Marmalade before, and highly recommend it. Our experience this time for our 47th anniversary was just as delightful as always and, once again, left us wanting to return next time we're in San Juan. It's a bit pricey for the locale, but definitely well worth it. It is the best overall dining experience in Puerto Rico (we have tried many of the highly-rated restaurants which, by comparison, are second-tier at best); and it rivals many of the world-class restaurants we have experienced anywhere else. You would really have to be hyper-picky to find fault with food, wine, or service, which are outstanding. If you're going to be in San Juan (especially on a romantic getaway), Marmalade should be the top restaurant on your list. Just make sure you make a reservation well in advance.

Marmalade is a top ten restaurant as we did the tasting with 15 dishes. There was not one we would not order again! Amazing experience with everything you would ever need. Owner/chef came out several times to share our groups tasting and even chose some of his personal favorites for us to enjoy.
Do not skip this experience

This was my fourth visit to Marmalade and it did not disappoint. It truly is a dining experience - from the flavors, food presentation, and the incredible service. I believe this might be my favorite restaurant in all of the U.S.
What a remarkable restaurant to have in San Juan. I am so fortunate I travel to the island for business so I can continue to eat at Marmalade on every visit!

Kat is the best server I have ever had. I marvel at her knowledge of the menu and the attention to detail in her descriptions is amazing. The food is top notch. We shared and I have been there 3 times. I have never had an item that I did not like.
