Outdated decor, snobbish, uppity servers (...we are doing YOU a favor waiting on you...), outdated decor, and uninteresting as in anciently way old (albeit very rich) clientele. An interesting, but insultingly over priced wine list. Food was good, soufflé was memorable, everything else... over priced and forgettable. There are so many more interesting price/value options in San Juan that unless... More

Augustos is an institution in Puerto Rico,the place to go in San Juan for extraordinary cuisine. With its European flair, this is one of the most elegant and glamorous restaurants in Puerto Rico. It is set on the lobby level of a 15-story hotel in Miramar. Menu items are concocted from strictly fresh ingredients. Chef Ariel has carried the tradition... More

The atmosphere and service are impecible. I had only ever had halibut in Anchorage Alaska at Simon and Seaforts - it was rated their best dish and the restaurant was rated the best in Anchorage - so I was not expecting Augusto's to be competitive. I was surpisingly wrong - the halibut was wonderful and just as good as I... More

I am a frequent customer and almost always order from the list of specials of the day. The chef's creativity is amazing and have never been disappointed by anything I've ordered. Everything is excellent, but seafood is the best. Don't miss the hot desserts, perticularly the chocolate souffle, the gooie cake or the apple charlotte. Expensive but great value for... More

Starting by the fact that i think this is the best place on San Juan. Outstanding foie, great wine list, very fresh halibut, the dessert just melt in your mouth. Perhaps the decor needs a refresh and maybe move to Condado because the area on Miramar is not that safe.

I will kiss the chef if he allowed me to! I made a visit with a few friends, the restaurant was almost empty, it was a Tuesday, so we were not surprised. But good for us!!! We started with some Champagne, and invited the chef to make us what inspires him at the moment... So the food star to come,... More

Augusto's was recommended to us by a Washington DC friend who comes to PR for business. We were a little hesitant as Augusto's is in a courtyard Marriott . And open arriving, the decor is nothing to write about. However, the mediocrity stole there. Everything from the service- sophisticated maître'd, Marcos to the exceptional food and interesting wine list was... More

We were in Puerto Rico for our anniversary which is also Valentine's Day. We went to fish restaurant for dinner and we were disappointed with the service and some of the food, so we went back to our hotel and decided to see if we could get dessert at our hotel restaurant. It was now about 9:30pm. We asked the... More
