I used to frequent Ummo frequently when I lived in PR for business. I returned this trip and it did not disappoint. Staff is great with the perfect amount of attention that allowed for undisturbed conversation with timely service. The steak was great as always. The wine was spectacular at only $48, it had the taste of a $200 wine.... More

If the concierge at your hotel recommends this place, tell him to forget it! I travel all over the world for business and pleasure. There is absolutely nothing going on here. Bad food, bad service and overpriced! An Argentinian steakhouse is suppose to be warm & friendly. Do yourself a favor and save your dollars. Scratch Ummo off your list!... More

If you like meat, this is the place to go. We had the the family parilla, pricy but worth it. Service is very good, will visit again.

This is our third visit to this restaurant. My husband and I had a late lunch at this restaurant (around 3 pm) and the experience was excellent. We ordered the Gourmet Parrillada. Neither of us like blood sausage,and were afforded the opportunity to substitute with chorizo. If you've never been to a Argentine steakhouse, this is the place to visit.... More

The steak here was very very good. I was very satisfied with my meal. It took a lil long for our food to get to us, but it was worth the wait. The location is great, very close to the San juan stellaris Marriott. We walked to dinner and dined outside. The price is comparable to any really good steakhouse.

This place was recommended by the concierge where we are staying (San Juan Water and Beach Club) as my husband wanted steak but be casually dressed (khaki short and polo vs dress shirt and dress pants). We were quite pleased. We were seated in an area that was enclosed with wine shelving that gave us some privacy and quieted the... More

I went to Ummo with a group of friends, we were all pleased with out meals. Especially the Chicken Spinach Ravioli. I Had mine with the Tomato Cream Sauce which was rich and delicious. The Chicken Spinach Ravioli with Tomato sauce was also delicious. and the steak's were pretty good as well.

Shared a 10oz filet mignon with sweet potato fries and plantain -we don't have large appetites so just right and so tender and delicious. One other in our party ordered the chicken, which again was very tasty but far too much for one as four pieces of chicken wrapped with extras! Two had cocktails, both of which were very good... More

The best steak! Cooked before your eyes, in this indoor barbecue! Best New York steak I have eaten, and the Yuca Mash as a side order with the steak, heavenly. Have the empanadas to start and a nice wine, and you will be soo pleased.

This restaurant has an awesomely cool atmosphere and decor and has the option of alfresco dining. We chose to eat inside. We both ordered the same dish, Churrasco (Skirt Steak) w/Chimichurri, Creamed Spinach, and Mash Potatoes, and it was amazing. Our server was also very awesome ... easy going, yet extremely consistent. We absolutely did not have to ask for... More
