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

“Classy/luxurious fine dinning experience GREAT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

This place is just AMAZING! Luxurious place in Condado (trendy city). Just when you enter this beautiful restaurant you are amaze. The service is just PERFECT, they make you feel like EGYPT king, they present you the champagne of the day and inform you what is available to drink by glass. Personally I got the Chef Table Menu, 7 course dinner. I recommend this strongly. Is just DELICIOUS. you can taste a entrée, fish, meat and desert. Chef Gabriel Badillo, the chef in charge today made an excellent work of magical food. If your a crazy lover of fine dinning and good food you MUST go.

“Exquisite Menu in a Classy Ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

1919 is a distinct restaurant in the middle of Condado in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Newly opened at the exquisitely decorated Vanderbilt Hotel and visited by a top notch list of business clientele and socialites alike. Furbished in the classy style of art deco, this dim lit jewel delivers a very distinguished menu. The wine list is thorough and the service is great. Call on Phillipe who will take care of you in every way.

The place to go if a great impression is on demand.

“Great experience, but too pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Overall the restaurant was beautiful and the service was superb. Our food was very good also, but for the price you are paying the portions you receive are exceptionally small! I understand that you are paying for the "experience" but unless you are eating on a business expense account or really trying to impress your date, I would save your money.

My experience at 1919 was one like I have never had. The attentive service of the staff, especially the knowledge of the menu and the wine list.The captain guided me through the fixeded menu and chose a great pinot noir that complemented our meal perfectly.The wague beef and the lamb loin were perfect ,the lobster soup with peas was out standing and the chocolate decadence well no words.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
