Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and service at this restaurant. Would recommend it without hesitation. Great steak, great wine and great pasta!

happened across Ummo as we were walking in the Condado neighborhood and decided to give it a try. The place was busy so we were unable to sit outside, generally our preferred option, but the atmosphere inside is nice and calm. Service was not exceptional, but acceptable, and the food was outstanding. We both ordered 10oz fillets that were mouthwateringly... More

My favorite restauruant in the Condado area. Great service, great food and very nice atmosphere. It's casual, it's elegant and its fun. You can sit at the bar and enjoy looking at the "parillada", sit outside and enjoy the breeze or just ask for an inside table and feel comfortable.

I don't know if i call this a steak house like some reviewers have. If i had thought of it that way i would probably not go but it is an Argentinean restaurant with a good selection of bbq meat done in variety of styles. They have great outdoor seating and nice decor with live music inside on the weekend.... More

It’s very hard to find a restaurant of this caliber in Condado. It is the closest thing to a New York City style steak house as you are going to get here. The crowd is definitely classy here too. The bar was busy but the noise of the bar did not affect our meal at all. The appetizer of the... More

Surrounded by beach resorts, most places in Condado are very casual in dress and cuisine. UMMO attracts a somewhat classier crowd and higher-brow menu. Beautiful decor, live music, and really good food overcomes the higher prices (compared to neighboring places). Our waitress was pretty good but disappeared toward the end of the meal.

My husband was served ants on his plate and the 'floor mgr' said he was sorry and did not take it off the bill. When asked about it he told us 'to just pay the bill and go'. Horrible hospitality. Will never go back to this restaurant.

Definitely my favorite restaurant during our week long vacation! The service was impeccable! Our waiter was very attentive. We started with the Classic Tabla...a selection of meats & cheeses. So much food, we ate less than half and took it home for lunch the next day! I had the lamb...delicious and I love lamb! But, my husbands skirt steak was... More

We were looking forward to eating at Ummo after reading the reviews here. While we enjoyed sitting outside on a beautiful San Juan evening, the food did little to impress us. We started with a meat and cheese plate which was a good idea but they brought out the bread after we were halfway through our appetizer. For the main... More

My husband and I and two friends had dinner at UMMO on Nov. 4th. The presentation of the food was great - very artsy. My husband had the rack of lamb and I had the churrasco steak - they were delicious! The decor was very ecclectic and artsy inside - and they offered outdoor covered seating too so you could...
