1919 Restaurant was literally right next door to our hotel the Concha, and its a very high end I believe the most expensive on the island? Inside the Vanderbilt. The service was implacable, the wine list well thought out, and the view the best part. The food was a 3.5/5, not as impressed as the prices indicated, but then again,... More

The restaurant is amazing. Great service and, of course, great food. We did the tasting and chose 6 different plates between the two of us. We loved them all, but, the risotto on the starters list was the best. It is pricey but worth it. Will definitely go back again.

Having already eaten at the other hotel offerings, we were expecting exceptional food and service. They did not disappoint. We were greeted with warmth and professionalism. The wait staff were very helpful with explaining the restaurant's offerings in the face of an... 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
