Love the tomatoe salad (caprese) and the potatoe cream. A vibrant new place at Miramar. I recommend to visit it before the service and dishes start deteriorating as usually happens in San Juan.

We visited Melanzana last night for the first time. The place opened 5 months ago and was in my radar since then. Last night my wife and I went there with another couple to have dinner. There's a very efficient valet parking ($3 without tip) service right in front of the entrance. We were rapidly greeted by the hostess and guided to our table. Our waitress Melissa was very knowledgeable and accommodating, making the difference during the night with her menu suggestions and descriptions. Presentation of the dishes is beautiful, good amount of portions, always hot, and great taste. Two of us had the Costolleta, other the risotto with prawns, and one of the ladies the gnocchi. We had 2 bottles of a good Italian wine, 2 espresso coffee and 2 after dinner drinks. The tab was around $75 each including tip. We will definitively return to try the pizza, which looked splendorous....

I was staying at the Marriot down the street and I met a friend there for dinner. The place has it's own pizza oven and the pies are all hand made.

The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. We had a pizza and being from Chicago I had high expectations. The crust was super thin and the whole thing was very tasty.

The vibe is very hip and the place was packed on Tuesday night.

If you are in the area it's worth checking out.

Just happened to be close to Miramar Hotel. Amazing service. Perfect Margarita. A manager who cares with lovely friendly servers. Thank you Orlando for a perfect first contact with Puerto Rico. Cheers

I am surprised to see terrible reviews about this place, although, I respect everyone's opinion. The appetizers were excellent and the two pizzas ordered were up to par with the best tasting pizzas in PR. The place is trendy, so always good to hang out. The bar selection is ample too, and the Jagermeiser us Really cold!
