“Wonderful, fabulous food, Atmosphere did not appear family friendly.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

I did not go to this restaurant the 2 times before when I stayed at El Conquistador based on looking thru the door and viewing the interior. However this time we took a chance and the food, the portions, the service was fabulous. Many of our fellow diners had the same aprehension about eating at this restaurant with their families. Great meal, generous portions.

“Not a real prime Steakhouse”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

My husband and I had dinner at Strip House and were disappointed by a few things. Although the atmosphere is very nice, the steak itself is of very poor quality. We have been to many high end steakhouses across the U.S. and Carribean. The Strip House IS NOT serving USDA Prime as they intend you to believe. The waitress was very nice but with little experience. Lastly, when leaving the valet charged us $27 for parking ! We were there for less than two hours and spent $270 for dinner. I recommend taking the ride to San Juan and visiting RuthsChris or Morton's, you can't go wrong.

“Mediocre Food and Service With an Attitude at Big City Prices...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

After spending several days eating local favorites, our family of 5 was looking forward to a nice steak dinner. We made advanced reservations as recommended. On arrival, the hostess gave us an attitude saying our reservations were for 2 people, not 5. Although there were all of about 10 customers in the place, they made us wait as they "prepared our table"....again with an attitude.

There were an abudance of vacant tables however we were given the only table next to the wait staff work station. Once we were seated our waiter was very attentive but certainly not overly friendly. We waited for drink refills each time one of them were empty.

Our meals included the salmon, filets, and burgers with sides. Filets were ordered medium - they were salty, a bit tough, and RARE. The steamed veggies came to us cold. The salmon was average for a decent restaurant. The burgers were fine.

I suppose this place is top of the line for a strip house on an island but for those of you who are used to big city steak joints, there simply is no comparison. Big city prices, so-so food, and service with an attitude won't bring us back here.
