Marmalade was not only recommended to us by a dear friend but also by the concierge of the Ritz Carlton San Juan. This restaurant came highly recommended and so we decided to give it a try. At first when you walk in from the streets of Old San Juan you are immediately transported into a "South-Beachy" styled restaurant. The decor... More

Marmalade was recommended to us by a friend who had been to Puerto Rico recently so we made a reservation. We let the restaurant know we were celebrating our anniversary and they ensured we had a beautiful table with fresh rose petals decorating our space. Service was impeccable our waiter Jonathan was awesome! The chef came out to check on... More

There is no question, this is the finest restaurant in all of Puerto Rico. Island Flavor, with Mainland Style and presentation. My favorite fusion restaurant ever. The service was fantastic. Forget trying to park near. In old San Juan, always be prepared to walk. Definitely recommended one of the tastings and with a wine pairing. We will definitely return if... More

This is by far the best restaurant that I have eaten at. The server was phenomenal and the owner/chef came around to each table. He actually spent 20 minutes speaking with us which is unheard of. Most importantly, the food was great especially the white bean soup. There were 3 of us and we all ordered differently and we all... More

We went here primarily on the strength of the Trip Advisor ranking. My wife and I decided it was the best meal both of us has ever eaten. That's not hyperbole: the single best meal I've ever had. For perspective, I would rank Gary Danko in San Francisco and Scarpetta in NYC as #2 and #3 on my personal "best... More

I don't typically spend $200 for a plate at dinner but this was an exception. I got the 5 course menu and it was beyond my expectations. The server was so knowledgeable that you really didn't even need to look at the menu. She asked about any dietary restrictions, allergies, things we don't eat and she took it from there.... More

I am a local foodie. Marmalade is without a doubt one of the top restaurants on the island! Exellent bar scene also. Tasting menu is well priced and a great idea to sample their tasty and creative cuisine.

By far the best dining experience during my trip to PR. The service and food were excellent. The "Global Warming" and the white bean soup were amazing. The chef/owner graced our table to share his culinary journey. I will definitely come again and highly recommend this resturant

My husband and I went here a few years ago and loved it and this was before I was gluten-free. We went last nite and my first question was "do you have a gf menu?" The response "everything is gf but the pasta dishes." I was hooked...again. The next question out of our delightful waitress' mouth "Are there any other... More
