Worse service of my life. Even though there weren't that many people the waitress took forever to come over. She forgot her tray of dirty cups at our table and only came to take our order after we sat for about 30-40 minutes. After finally getting our food, we got the sushi combination and sushi roll combination (average at best)... More

Bit of Japan in San Juan. Great sushi, decent service, but the bacon fried rice was great. If you are tired of caribbean food or is a quick stop on a cruise, J taste is the place.

We had chicken and shrimp teriyaki and had a great dining experience. Loved the food and potions were generous. May have again before holiday is out.

Excellent sushi based on a friend assessment. Food served at intervals versus at once. Smoke from Teppanyaki spoiled our dinning experience.

This place is amazing. The trip advisor reviews are accurate! My brother and friend enjoyed the ambiance, the food, and the drinks! We definitely treated ourselves to a wonderful experience of good sushi, sashimi, sake, and desert. We had the $80 assorted sashimi and rolls. It was all so FRESH and tasty! Our server Queenie who was amazing recommended we... More

The food at J-taste was very good every time I went there- from the sushi to all the hot plates we tried. I did feel adventurous one time and tried the sea urchin sushi- it felt like eating ocean/algae-tasting goo. Will definitely not try again, but that's just my personal taste. The atmosphere, the food and the service they offer... More

The food was prepared in front of us and it was plenty of it... The sake mojito was just the perfect and unusual drink but sooooooo good!!! The atmosphere and everything in the restaurant was just perfect!

My bf and I took his kids out for a nicer dinner in OSJ. I had been craving sushi but we needed a place w a kid friendly menu also. We ordered 6 or 7 sushi rolls and the kids got hot meals. They enjoyed the experience. My only complaint was they waited until I was mostly done w the... More

After a nice, hot day of seeing the history of Old San Juan and shopping the streets, we decided to enjoy a sushi lunch at J-Taste. The service was good and the drinks were excellent. My husband said the Saki was hot and the best he's ever had. Our sushi box lunch was perfect with some sushi roll and sushi... More

The best meal we had in Old San Juan. We look around for a few hours before deciding on this place. We were glad we waited. We sat outside and had great service from two waitresses. All the sushi was very fresh and well made. The service was very prompt and friendly. We took over two hours to eat but... More
