The restaurant has an amazing energy and palate of citrus colors to match the white leather decor. Neighborhood favorite spot for the food lovers of San Juan/Condado. Unbeatable value, great ambience and energy has made Jam Bistro Rum bar moderne an instant success in Puerto Rico. Large groups welcome with private rooms.

If you want a truly different and fabulous culinary experience, try Jam in San Juan, Puerto Rico. In a city where there is a lot of mediocre and expensive meals at the large hotels, Jam is a gem. The food was superbly prepared with subtle melding of flavors. The size of each course was just right and the presentation was attractive and appropriate. The Wait staff were able to advise us on the best dishes. Each course was wonderful. I recommend this restaurant with highest praise.

This was a great place! The service was amazing! All the wait staff just fantastic. And the FOOD is out of this world! I was in Puerto Rico for three nights and ate there all three nights! You have try the Coconut Water and Guava Mojitos! Wine selection is excellent and reasonable!

During our annual sister trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico, my sister and I decided to give Jam a try after one of our other faves was booked for the night. And I must say, we've formed a forever bond. Our server was excellent, informed and even came up with a creative way to create a surf-and-turf combo to fit our palate with their delicious churrasco and red snapper. The appetizers we tried-- which included calamari, pork quesadilla and buena vida ceviche-- were awe. some. Emphasis on the "awe." The ambience is unparalleled with a mod decor that makes you feel like you've stepped into a swanky new dimension. For a great first impression or a superb send-off, please do yourself a favor and make a reservation.

Trendy cozy upscale restraurant with a great vibe. The creative chef definitely knows variety, presentation and flavor. The bar menu was just as fresh and unique (try the cilantro mojito with ginger and a hot pepper!). And the service was top notch - intelligent and friendly. Details down to the guava flavored butter were not overlooked. The ceviche was the best we've ever tasted.

Price was moderately high but well worth the value.

Made for a perfect little evening with my wife.

Reservations is a good idea after 8pm

The concierge at La Concha Renaissance recommended this restaurant and we loved it; it was the best food we've had in a long time . . . . bread basket with guava butter, white bean soup, both house and caesar salads, tuna tartar and cerviche appetizers and tuna as entree - plus all other entrees - were excellent. Not one miss, everything superb. Melvin, our server, was a pleasure, attentive and good humored. We returned to Jam for a second meal during the 5 days we were in San Juan. There were four of us and we agreed that every aspect of both meals were among the best. Oh yes, make sure you order mofongo here, if it's not already included in your meal, get one as a side dish plus our girls split the chocolate mousse and were completely silent as they savored it and then raved about it when it was gone! We obviously highly recommend Jam!
