Great food, amazing drinks service was very attentive inside. My only issue was with valet parking, took too long and jumped customers to serv others...
Fabulous food and servers, but took longer than expected.
Amazing experience. They created a perfect coursed menu for our crew. Thank you.
It was our second time returning to Puerto Rico and we knew we couldn’t visit without a trip to Santaella. The cocktails, entree, and service is always phenomenal. We tried the foie gras special - amazing! Thank you for taking such good care of us, we can’t speak more highly of you!
Outstanding service and great food.
Excellent service, presentation and ambience, however kind of loud.
Always amazing service and fantastic food! Thanks to Jaime, Christian and Rafael!!!
Awesome as usual!
Great food, great service, and a vibrant crowd
Outstanding service and menu selections. Best dining experience in San Juan during this visit
Fun delicious and memorable
We visit Santaella every time we vacation in Puerto Rico, it's a must. Some years we go to PR twice a year. Each time Santaella is on top of our list. The General Manager, Ray remembers us each time we visit and even where we sat the time before. Quite amazing actually. We've tried different items on the menu, everything has been over the top delicious. The wait staff is excellent. We've never had a bad experience in many years of visiting. The turn over rate is very low, I recognize the same servers year after year. Even the door man has been there for 6 years. Please go, experience the great food and service. Santaella is easy to find, while there walk around LaPlacita and enjoy the culture. Don't forget a reservation is a must, trying to visit without a reservation is next to impossible.
Great food, great ambience and even best of all the absolute best Zandia Mojitos (Watermelon Mojitos) on earth!!!
Best restaurant and bar in Puerto Rico. It's a no brainer.
Great food, service and drinks. We loved it.
WAiter dropped wine on my back. Said it was only a small drop. Hardly visible. When I got back to hotel saw the small drop.
Food was very good though
Phenomenal meal! Our favorite in PR
Love the food here, its great every time. We love the craft cocktails as well. The servers are also attentive and helpful!
Santaella is a loud and happening place. The food is excellent and we had waiter Rafael, who was AWESOME. Definitely not a place for quiet business dinner, but excellent for an outing with friends.
Food and service is outstanding. Ambience is very nice but could be a bit noisy. One of my favorite restaurants although a little bit pricey in some items. Overall is a must go restaurant.
Simplemente mejor restaurante especialmente los cocteles y la barra.
What a marvelous dining experience. Our wonderful server Paola was knowledgeable and simply terrific guiding is thru this incredibly diverse and creative menu.
The Red Snapper was AMAZING
The most popular appetizer the Goat Cheese Quesadilla was incredibly prepared. Textures flavors abound.
The cocktail menu again creative and fun.
This is a must visit while in San Juan.
I have always had excellent meals at Santaella. On this occasion, the service was very slow and toward the end of my meal, the maître d had the audacity to ask me to move tables so that he could combine two tables. that was inexcusable in a fine dining restaurant. The service was not slow due to the kitchen. The two hot dishes arrived warm and dessert arrived slightly melted. Nonetheless, one of my favorite restaurants in the world.
Everything was excellent! The Rulos de Morcilla are divine and the pork shank is very juicy. Everything was perfect and delicious. Can’t wait to go back.
He food was amazing, our bartender was super friendly, we let hit choose our drinks and he did an amazing job!
Food very salty and the servers got the appetizers and entrees we ordered wrong. Ugh. Never mind the prices. We spent $120 and had to grab a snack when we got home.
This place is excellent. I love everything but the morcilla spring rolls are the best
Great meal, very overpriced compared to other restaurants in San Juan..
Santaella was simply fantastic! We loved all of the dishes we had. Food is great and service warm and friendly. It is also a beautiful place.
Comida deliciosa pero mucha desorganización en cuanto a acomodar los clientes. Hicimos reservación para las 10:30 y nos sentaron cerca de las 11:30 es una pena que el lugar con tan buena comida tenga este problema...
Excellent food! Had the skirt steak with plantains! Would definitely visit this place again!
best upscale casual-dining in San Juan! great food, great service and superb cocktails … always fun!
A pesar de que seguiré recomendando el restaurante, en esta ocasión fallaron de manera absurda. La comida excelente y la camarera que nos atendió maravillosa.
Tras un primer aperitivo y después de reclamarlo dos veces trajeron el segundo aperitivo 40 minutos más tarde.
La respuesta del encargado fue “hubo un problema”. Claro que hubo un problema, eso ya lo se yo que llevaba esperando 40 minutos. No se limitó a pedir disculpas sino a justificar y entendiendo que era un turista más que no volvería (suelo ir a este restaurante 5 o 6veces al año en mis viajes a San Juan.
Igualmente un pollo que pedimos plain (sin curry) estaba maridado en curry con lo que lo tuvimos que devolver.
Extraño lo que ha pasado porque siempre he tenido una experiencia maravillosa, pero esta vez fallaron.
Al final pidieron disculpas y nos invitaron a un postre pero la experiencia no valió la pena en esta ocasión.
This is one of the best - if not the BEST - restaurants in PR!
It was an amazing experience!!! 100% recommended
Very noisy. Seems to be as get together place for locals. Food is very good.
