Global flavors. Locally-rooted. World-class cuisine ~ that truly knows its place. At 1919, we are passionately committed to offering up the freshest organic and local ingredients for each and every dish we create. We believe in sourcing all our menu components with social consciousness and always at the pinnacle of good taste. We place the highest value on hand-selecting products that are local, artisanal, and homemade in order to craft food that is truly flavor-forward ~ served up fresh and with a contemporary flair ~ from our kitchen to your table. Subdued elegance in a space generous enough for conviviality, yet private enough to provoke intimate conversation. Visitors to our dining salon will attest: The only onlooker here is the ocean. In The Year 1919 The Condado Vanderbilt Hotel was built by the legendary Vanderbilt family under the direction of renowned architect Whitney Warren whose other landmark designs include Grand Central Terminal

Hated it. There was virtually nothing on the menu that did not contain raw meat or fish, octopus or squid.

We ate at several of the "best" restaurants, Marmalade, Pikayo, to name a couple. This was the best overall experience. The others were very good but this was by far the best overall experience. The restaurant and the hotel are gorgeous which helps make the initial reaction positive. However, where this restaurant shines is with the food and the service.... More

We were here over July 4th and ate here on July 4th...I went in reading the views thinking I would not do the $80 4 course menu but I did and it was worth it. My boyfriend and loved every expensive second of it. The servers made it such an experience and the tables felt private and a romantic setting.... More

Thank you so much for making my family's birthday celebration so wonderful! Natalia helped me pick a menu and make my FIL's bday memorable. It's not an easy task to accommodate my family of 16 (vegetarians and kids) but 1919 was amazing! I will definitely go back if ever in San Juan. Everyone was wowed! Thanks so much!

1919 is one of the nicest restaurants I have visited. My boyfriend and I enjoyed the prix fixe menu to celebrate my birthday. The lobster salad and the corn soup is a must!! The restaurant is not cheap, but you are paying for the quality of the food and the service. The service is excellent. Everyone we interacted with was... More

We have eaten in really nice restaurants across the world and 1919 is certainly up there with some of the best. We enjoyed the prix fixe meal with wine pairings, and honestly, we debated about going with the wine pairings, but when you have the opportunity to allow experts to pair your wine with your food why not sit back...
