Description: 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

“Almost perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

The space luxurious and elegant. The food exquisite. Service very attentive and almost perfect. The only reason not deserving 5 points in every category was because a prearranged dessert wine was not served and my entree was not what I bad ordered, nevertheless delicious. Could have complaint but did not want to upset my company, who where enjoying the evening tremendously

“Culinary extraordinary!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

This have to be the best restaurant in Puerto Rico. Locate it the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel. We made reservations for 6 pm so we could see the beautiful view of the ocean, and we did. The waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. We did choose the four course Pre fix really its like 7 course because they keep bringing dishes all night long. All the food was delicious, the highlights were the lobster pea soup, sea food risotto and the chocolate decadent. This is a 5 star rest don't miss it. My only complaint, it's that the waiter were not personal, the did there job and that's it. Its was my birthday but the never asked if we were there for a especial occasion. But anyway we had a great time.

A total surprise this is a beautiful and upmarket restaurant with rich decoration and beautiful organic food. A little pricey but an experience to remember. The view is to die for.

“Fair, fair, fair and expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We went to this restaurant for dinner for our anniversary, and were very disappointed. Food was fair, service was fair, ambiance was fair, but it was quite expensive. We wouldn't mind the prices, if the food had been good or interesting, but that was not the case. The one exception was the eggplant, walnut risotto. It was delicious. The restaurant has a beachfront view during daytime.
