Excelente servicio excelente ambiente Super hermoso y perfecto para ocasiones especiales
The catch of the day tasted like it was the catch from 5 days ago. Over priced and service was meh
Food was not seasoned well and there was only 1 server for the entire restaurant.
Muy buena comida, ambiente muy bueno! Otro restaurante para volver.
The service was quick and pleasant. The food was delicious, seafood mofongo and grilled chicken, both excellent. Definitely worth a visit.
It was beautiful me an family celebrated my mother’s birthday in San Juan an visited Old San Juan for the culture .. we reserved El Asador for the 2nd night it was beautiful I took amazing photos an the vibe was amazing thank you
Food was rather bland, fish did not seem fresh but frozen filet covered in sauce; mofongo needed more taste- garlic, tocino. Churrasco was good.
There was no experience because the server never brought out our food....on purpose.
I only wish they offered a better cut of steak. Favor was amazing
Really good food and drinks. Friendly staff and an awesome ambiance.
Overall it was a solid experience. They do not use the correct rice for their risotto, yet it’s listed 6-7 times on their menu.
Table was ready, service was good, food was excellent
Amazing meal! The lobster risotto was the best I ever had, and my boyfriends steak was cooked perfectly. Would definitely recommend.
Great ambiance. Very focused menu. Some continental choices as well as local specialties. My dining partner had seafood mofongo which looked fabulous and I dined on mushroom risotto (vegetarian option). Best of all was the service and setting. Very relaxing courtyard style dining. Highly recommend.
Food was delish and we ate at the bar and the bartender was excellent
We went to el Asador at 5:30 in the evening because there were no reservations after that time. The restaurant had limited seating inside, but considerable seating outside. Since it had rained heavily earlier in the day,the outdoor seating was not available.
We chose a table that was a high top because the seating had backs to them. Normal height seating was on benches. The drinks were wonderful and the food was great. The atmosphere was classic Latin. While not plush it was very atmospheric.
The environment at El Asador was very pleasant. Unfortunately the food was average at best and the linguine with shrimp was almost inedible, drowned in a thick cheesy sauce. There are only two choices for wine: a house white and a house red. The steak was disappointing but not awful. The service was friendly. In short, don't go for the food.
A must go when you are in Old San Juan! The food, service, and atmosphere make for a truly enjoyable dining experience.
We had a nice meal but our server disappeared for an hour and we had to get up to get someone’s attention for another drink, and then eventually just the bill. It appeared that only two people were serving the entire restaurant, but our table was looked over. Still a nice atmosphere and a nice sampling of risotto to start as a welcome.
The food was decent, but not really special. The risotto was real just average. It does have a nice ambiance, and the wait staff was attentive.
Restaurant is dysfunctional. Would not go back.
No one came up to us after 15 minutes so we left.
Really great food.
We ended up leaving after 1 hour we barely had one drink and no appetizers or food. The restaurant is clearly understaffed. We felt bad for our server and knew he was trying but way too understaffed. While waiting for our food we ordered 3 pizzas from a nearby establishment and got confirmation it was ready before we even had the appetizers we ordered. Poor experience. The table next to us had the same experience.
Attended on a recommendation. Unfortunately left disappointed. Food was very average. Drinks took forever. We had mojitos to start and then a second mojito and a wine with our entrees. Mojito 2 and wine arrived as we were finishing our meal.
terribly, we waited for drinks for almost 40 minutes and 1 hour 50 minutes we waited for food, which was none.
Reservation was at 7:00. Restaurant was not busy. Waited for about 20 minutes to get a server and a drink and order. Waited for 1 hour 45 minutes, until we left at 9:15 since it didn't appear we were going to get served. Bar tender was good. It appears many were having the same experience, so maybe just a bad night there.
We were concerned that there were not busy on a Thursday night but the food and ambiance were delicious. The venue is charming. I hope the word gets out!
Our second visit, and it was as fabulous as our last! Frank was wonderful, all meals were delicious, and the restaurant is beautiful. This will definitely become an annual stop!
Casual with excellent fresh local cuisine.
The food selection was good for all 6 of us. I had the Red Snapper delish!!!we enjoyed everything except the beer. Refrig was not working beets were flat.
Dinner in a lovely setting. Good service of reasonable food. Don’t be fooled by the online/website menu.... it shows an extensive wine list, with a range of prices .... reality is the restaurant only has one red and one white wine .... both overpriced.
Nice sized portions, definitely enough for leftovers. Quick with appetizers and drinks as well. Lots of large tables make it great for a group!
Open and airy— great if you want any outdoor feel
Everything was great, we were celebrating my father in law birthday, and our server was really kind, good attitude and quick service. Nothing to say about the place, nice decor and beautiful concept. I recommend it!
I could not recommend this restaurant. The food quality is poor and the wait staff were inattentive even though the place was empty. We made a reservation based on previous reviews. I am not sure what happened to make them go downhill but we did not even stay past our appetizers. We decided to move on to a different restaurant for entrees.
Great ambiance and terrific service
Overpriced, average food. Poor wine selection. Nice waiter, but sorely understaffed. Neat atmosphere.
The restaurant itself is beautiful, the staff friendly and attentive. The food is average, but pricey.
No AC is open AIr. But drinks, food and service. Excellent
The place came highly recommended on travel sights so I went there for my birthday dinner. The food was bad. I got a pork chop that I am pretty sure was just a brick of salt that they made look like a pork chop. My boyfriend got the cod that was some kind of weird boiled situation and then he was very sick for the next day or so of our trip. He said that the fish was essentially inedible and the garlic sauce that they put on it to drown out the taste just made it worse.
