As other reviewers will attest, this restaurant is amazing. I will confirm by stating that this was, hands down, one of the more memorable meals of any trip I've taken, with a vibrant atmosphere, reasonable pricing, and no-fuss, high quality food with local flavors on display. I went here on a trip with my husband and we purposefully chose around... More

Amazing place overall. Yes, it's true, there is a bit of a wait but it is well worth it!! All of the food is organic and local, and the menu changes all the time. We went off of many recommendations from the locals and I am so happy that we made the trip. We ordered the natural wings - which... More

We ate at many of the top spots in San Juan (1919, Marmalade, etc) and our meal at Jose Enrique was definitely our favorite and came in at about 1/3 the price of the "fine dinning" meals. We arrived around 6pm on a Thursday and only had to wait 15 minutes or so for a table (your wait will certainly... More

I felt like we had been invited to a cool party! The place had a great energy and vibe! The menu changes daily and the options were very creative. The food was delicious, from apps to dessert.

Ok, I thought I was just unlucky with the orders I made because everyone raved so much about his place--"quintessential Puerto Rican food." Ok, I'll bite. Let's give it a try. The storied local celebrity chef, Jose Enrique, must have something up his sleeve. First of all, you'll get lost if you're looking for a proper restaurant and marquis with... More

This is a great place to have a nice lunch or dinner with friends or your couple. Food is very good and excellent service. There is always something new to try. Ask waiter for recommendations if you are kind of skeptical and they will enlighten you on the right path.

We visited this restaurant on my birthday on the recommendation of a friend. we went without reservation and the wait was over an hour. The food is very good, also excellent service, prices a bit high as drinks.We do recommend booking in advance by telephone.

They do not except reservations and we showed up when they opened but the list was full. We were willing to wait until the 2nd seating since we heard such great things about it. Someone didn't show up that was on the list so lucky us! The food was so good . We had the Skirt steak, wings, crab appetizer... More
