Every element of dinner at 1919 is performed to perfection. From the ingredients to the preparation to the presentation, every step is fr lawless. On top of the perfect meal, add the perfect service, efficient and unassuming, all geared to make you feel at home although you clearly know you're in heaven.

Our waiter often forgot of us, this cannot happen when you pay him 15% or more of such an expensive meal

Nicely set within the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel, 1919 is one of the best restaurants in San Juan. The service, the atmosphere, the elegance all come together at this magnificent restaurant serving exquisite creations from Michelin Star-rated Executive Chef Juan José Cuevas. 

The restaurant perfectly blends fine dining with flavors of freshly sourced ingredients that could be sampled ala carte, as a degustation menu or even as a wine pairing menu.

Boasting an excellent wine list, you will be sure to have a memorable, thoroughly enjoyable dining experience at one of Puerto Rico’s finest gems.

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.

Hi, Thank you so much for taking the time to highlight your experience at 1919! We are proud to be locally sourced, and we support local farmers. Fun fact: All of the eggs in the Condado Vanderbilt are local. (and no egg mix! fresh eggs only!). We truly hope see you again some time in the future.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 !

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!
