We spend a lot of money in 1919 and we were very upset because food wasn't good. It was actually half cooked. The macaroni was hard and before we knew what was happening we had purchased a bottle of wine, and paid for bottled water. I would not have been upset about the money if we had enjoyed the meal....

We ate here our first night in the hotel and the food was amazing! We ordered the 4 course meal and every single dish was absolutely amazing! The service was perfect. They were very attentive and polite. They sent us back to our room with a banana bread that was heavenly. I highly recommend it. It was pretty pricey, but... More

The meal we had at 1919 was a great way to culminate our trip to Puerto Rico. We had the four course fixed price menu. I would definitely suggest this option as it enables you to try many of the wonderful, creative dishes. Each dish was artistically presented with amazing flavors. My only disappointment of the evening was that my... More

This is not your typical hotel restaurant! Although this is fine dining, it doesn't seem stuffy because the waiters are friendly and even funny at times. The tasting menu is the way to go if you want to be taken on a culinary journey by their Michelin Star-rated Executive Chef Juan Jose Cuevas. The food, paired with perfect wines, perfect... More

Exquisite food. Luxurious ambiance. Great for a romantic night out. Conveniently located in the heart of Condado at the exclusive Vanderbilt hotel. Not crowded at all, only beautiful people!

We had the Chef's seven course dinner and the quality of his products and fusion of flavors was mindblowing. The Chef had the courtesy of coming to our table and asking how was everything and that was a great detail. We also appreciated and enjoyed the excellent service of Enrique who is very knowledgable and experienced. We'll definitey return.

Dinner at this restaurant was a truly stunning and memorable experience! My partner and I ordered the chef's choice seven course menu with six food courses and a dessert. We had lobster, sashimi, tender salmon, crab and other fish and they were all delicious. The 87% Venezuelan cocoa warm and moist chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream on top wrapped... More

We were greeted with a smile and they continue the same way all evening. Every detail from wine selection to dessert was attended to exceptionally. We felt like the only guests in the room. We enjoyed the well prepared menu choices for each of the 4 courses, especially the eggplant with seafood salad. Our waiter overheard us toasting to our... More

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
