My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of dining at The Garden a couple of nights ago on our last night in Puerto Rico. It was the perfect ending to my stay in my beloved island. The ambience, service and above all else food was just outstanding. The food is perfectly prepared, delicious and fresh. We had their homemade... More

The place first impression is good, but that's more or less what they have. I arrived at 8 PM and seated after a while waiting (the place was almost empty). The owner (I think) came with the menu after 20 minutes, since the waitress never bring them . After a while the waitress came in for the orders, telling that... More

We generally visit Condado for a fine-dining experience at one of several restaurants we could recommend. While stuck in traffic heading from Isla Verde to Condado one night we happened to see The Garden which looked very inviting. Had never really noticed it previously because its location is not in a recognized "night-life" area. We pulled in to get out... More

My husband and I spent one night in Isla Verde in June and by pure chance came across The Garden Restaurant and we were so pleased that we did. Relaxing atmosphere, inside and out, very friendly staff and the food we can honestly say was some of the best we had ever had. Everything is fresh and organic and you... More

Very busy place. We went on a Friday Night. Good food although a little pricey, and not enough servers. Tables were close as to accommodate the large number of customers waiting to be seated.

Nice restaurant, great location, easy parking. Food is good with some very interesting combinations. The service is where everything goes down, there is no proper serving order, people that arrive after you for sure could be serviced first also there is no knowledge from the serves about what is available or not, they could offer you a dish that is...

Good, fresh food presented very attractively. Attentive service and pretty, casual decor. Good choice in the Ocean Park-Isla Verde area. A bit pricey, but then so are most restaurants in San Juan.

We ate here after seeing ratings on Yelp and agree that the food was delicious! We were intrigued by the menu options and enjoyed everything we ordered. Service wasn't fast by any means but we weren't in a hurry so didn't mind. Would recommend if you are staying nearby!

Tried The Garden during PR Restaurant Week and enjoyed the experience. Good service, good food, nice atmosphere and interesting cocktails. They use fresh, local ingredients in creating their food and strive to provide healthy and organic meals. Their drink list contains a nice selection of wines, artisanal brews and some very unusual cocktail offerings. The bartender was happy to visit... More
