Outstanding food and service. The wines recommended by the sommelier was spectacular.
Food was great, service was great. Four courses for under $100 - great value.
1919 was expected to be one of the best dining experiences during our stay in beautiful Puerto Rico. The wait staff was excellent, but sadly for the price ($550.00) for two people enjoying the tasting menu plus wine pairing, the food was not exceptional, few items were good and most were not good.
Went here because I’m visiting San Juan and saw it on a list of top restaurants in the city. It’s located in a historic hotel which was already a plus upon arrival to the restaurant. Once in, they give you the red carpet treatment- addressing you by name and explaining with detail each plate upon delivery. They have several items with locally grown ingredients which made it feel like they support their community and made me feel good about being there.
Wonderful experience from the start in the bar to the dessert with a beautiful Hungarian Tokaji wine
Great restaurant!! Excellent service and staff!!
Best dining experience I’ve ever had in my life. They spoke to me using my last name, extremely professional. All who attended us were experts. There was a person who explained the food, a person who explained the drinks, a person who brought samples to clear out pallets, a person for dessert. It was amazing. If you want to feel like royalty, an experience you see in movies, this is the place.
Excellent food as always. Great suggestions from the staff for wines and other items. Perfect for a dinner date :)
Visiting family in PR and treating us all to very fine dining! Lovely restaurant, service was the best and the treats when we left were totally unexpected and delicious!
Fue una experiencia espectacular. Vista al mar, el trato de todos los empleados, comida y bebida todo perfecto. Buen restaurante para celebrar ocasiones especiales como lo fue para mi esposa y para mi.
Una experiencia increíble e inolvidable desde el momento en que entras al lugar. Servicio y comida de excelencia.
Had our anniversary dinner at 1919 and it was a spectacular experience. we arrived about 15 mins early to our reservation, but were seated right away. service was really attentive from the start but i have to say that our waiter (Ivan) was superb. he made the whole experience an unforgettable one. without asking, he brought a scarf for my wife when he noticed she was cold. was very courteous and attentive with our food restrictions, making sure every dish was according to planned before serving. food was great! we enjoyed every plate (the four course option). the restaurant was a bit noisy due to some guests in a nearby table. the view is spectacular, overlooking the ocean.
Great atmosphere and superior service and food. A must for all
Wonderful food, service and venue. Cheers!
Outstanding food and service. Heading there again on our stay in San Juan. High dining experience
It’s a total culinary experience, with local ingredients and excellent wine selection.
After spending nearly 10 days in San Juan, I must say that 1919 in Condado Vanderbilt is the best restaurant in terms of food and impeccable service. We ordered tuna hiramasa crudo, suckling pig and snapper. For dessert we had pineapple upside down cake. Everything was delicious. The restaurant also gives you cucumber gazpacho to start, sorbet before dessert and cookies and candies. After we paid the check, we were given a banana cake loaf as a gift to take home. All staff were very friendly and service was amazing. This is a restaurant not to be missed.
Very disappointing 45 Anniversary dinner. Four dishes I had were poor or not editable. The manager apologized and the chef attempted to placate. Won't go back!
The most elegant interiors and detailed service on the island. A must visit for any special occasion.
First, the service here was excellent. Just the right amount of attentiveness without being overbearing. Second, the food was amazing. The first course Tuna dish is simply out of this world. Third, the Salmon, as described by the host, truly does melt in your mouth like butter, a must try. The fourth course dessert demands that you choose the opera cake, flavors that leave you wanting a cigarette. What an amazing restaurant and an amazing meal. Priced fairly in a beautiful setting. If you are traveling to PR; make sure this restaurant is on your list.
A top 10 meal for me. Remarkably attentive service and extremely classy without feeling stuffy. Food was phenomenal. Prix fixe portions were perfect and everything was prepared to perfection. A little pricy but you get what you pay for. Highly, highly recommend.
The food was wonderful and the attentive service was outstanding. My daughter and I did the tasting menu and we were not disappointed. My daughter had the tuna appetizer and I had the salad. Delicious. We then each had a pasta that was delicious. One was a ravioli and the other was a light pasta. Our main meals were quite good but the best was the warm bread pudding with ice cream and caramel sauce for dessert! Amazing. Worth every penny. The wine was absolutely wonderful.
We wanted to end our 10 day vacation with dinner at 1919 Condado Vanderbilt. We were not disappointed from the moment we walked in and seated at the table. The view was outstanding the service was excellent and the meal was superb. We decided to order the four course dinner which was excellent . The entire staff at 1919 was there to help and again they were outstanding !
This is an excellent restaurant. The food, service, and ambience are outstanding. Although expensive, the experience is worth the price.
Most food portions where small. But overall very good.
If u want to feel like being treated as royalty, this is the place. The food and service was outstanding!!!! The restaurant provides ocean views with a great ambiance. I won’t go into the dishes we had, let’s just say everything was excellent.
Beautiful restaurant in a spectacular hotel. I went with my wife and a couple to celebrate her birthday. As soon we arrived the host was very kind and attentive and we were seated immediately. Service was impecable and food was as expected for this upscale restaurant. It was a great night. The thing which you must be aware is of prices of wine. Even though we expected to pay more than usual, wines were ridiculously pricey. I have been in many Michelin star restaurants 1,2,3 and even in these restaurants the cost of a bottle is not so high. Definitely I will recommend this restaurant but take your wine with you!
Very enjoyable experience. Celebrated my girlfriend's birthday and it was phenomenal. The atmosphere is very sim so it makes for the romantic vibe and the candle was a nice touch. Food was amazing as well
Excellent service! Great food!
Everything was excellent from the service to the food
Excellent food and the service is just amazing. It is so nice to go to a restaurant where everybody is focus on the best customer service.
Best. Dinner. Ever. First time we took our kids to 1919, during Restaurant Week, which provided the same level of excellence, quality, beauty, and deliciousness at a great value. It was an eye-opening experience for them. We had a perfect evening, sharing this fabulous place with them. Thanks!!!
Overpriced. Small portions. Poor wine recommendations.
Food quality is awesome, cooked perfectly and beyond amazing taste. Excellent experience. Definitely will return for a special occasion. :)
Great flavors and cooking style. Best to eat out of regular menu and complete all courses, but overall it was a good experience.
The experience was amazing. Perfect for any celebration yo have good time with family. The food and the service was great.
This was our first time at 1919. Coincidentally, it was during Restaurant Week. We liked the menu so we made a reservation. We were greeted very warmly and the service was very attentive and never overwhelming. The food was presented very well and tasted fantastic. We came away from our dinner very happy and satisfied, without being so full that we were uncomfortable.
1919 is not inexpensive. But 1919 cooks things we don't make at home and cooks them well. We are very happy with our evening.
Food was very disappointing. I have been to many restaurants that offer chefs tasting and this one failed miserably and it was during Restaurant week in Puerto Rico , the time when a restaurant really wants to shine. The scallop dish lacked any real flavor and the clams and mussels were not cleaned, therefore filling the dish with the grit and sand. Hanger steak was very chewy and no steak knives were offered.
Great restaurant but during restaurant week their service lacks. Go outside of restaurant’s week or service will be disappointing.
