Juan provides great customer service and menu assistance. The Chef Red Snapper Special was delicious. It was very moist in side yet crisp and flavorful outside. Drinks were a little weak but overall we enjoyed it and would definitely return.

Service was amazing and the food was delicious! We ordered ceviche that was so fresh and yummy! Our server was delightful and attentive. This place is very unassuming from the outside but once you’re inside, the dining is A-one.

A hidden gem in Condado. Manager Juan went to great lengths to make us welcome. Enjoyed so much we had dinner there two nights in a row, and went for dessert and drinks on third night. Foos was outstanding. Highly recommend.

Just an excellent restaurant with authentic Puerto Rican specialties prepared with the freshest ingredients. Our server Juan was excellent - his recommendations were spot on. Highly recommended for a great night in Puerto Rico.

Located across the street from fancy resort restaurants, this spot looked fun and relaxed. The restaurant, which features Puerto Rican food, sits low and below street level. It is not fancy, and has a big TV screen. But the ceviche was fabulous, and the Mofungo really delicious. I also really enjoyed the fried cheese with Guava sauce. The drinks are fine, nothing fancy, and the waiters are very friendly.

Was disappointed with the overall quality and taste of our meals. My churrasco was fatty and not cooked to order (I requested well done and received medium with stringy veins). It was very rubbery to cut and chewy. I left 2/3 on the plat as I just couldn’t tolerate it. Didn’t receive any chimichuri with the churassco either which didn’t help either. My wife thought her chicken mofongo was ok, but has had much much better in San Juan. Overall I don’t know how this place is rated so high. Not for us.

We had a couple misses in the Isla Verde area the prior few nights. This was the opposite—so good! Our waiter & bartender (Juan & Ivan) went above and beyond recommending drinks (amazing) and even recommending sights to see over our stay. Service was fast and attentive and can’t say enough about how cool our servers were. The seafood paellita for 2 was fantastic! I will be missing it when I leave the island. Stop reading and go eat there now!

The food was excellent. I had the ceviche and my companions had steak and rice. They were very accommodating - we wanted onions in the rice and it was no problem.
The tostines were the best we had on our trip.
The vibe is distinctly casual. A giant screen playing sports shows was 6 feet away. But the food, prices and service were excellent.

We had seen Waiters last night from our hotel balcony. We read the reviews and thought we’d give it a try. They accommodated our party of 6 quickly and were very courteous upon our arrival when they saw we had only just made the reservation. The staff were kind, friendly and very helpful. Our waiter, Juan, was amazing! We ordered the tropical fish ceviche, seafood gumbo, seafood stuffed avocado, paella and snapper. The food was absolutely delicious! The fish was all extremely fresh, and everything tasted phenomenal! The mojitos were fantastic as well. Our group truly enjoyed our experience at Waiters from the delicious food to the friendly service, everything was wonderful!

The service was excellent.
The skirt steak, and the alcapurrias were delicious. We really enjoyed the coconut shrimp, however we didn’t think the small portion warranted a 16$ price tag.
We will definitely go back before heading home for beers and alcapurrias.
