If we could give zero stars, we would. But unfortunately we have to settle for one. The evening started with a 1 hour wait that turned into almost a 2 hour wait. Basically if you are planning to visit here and it is crowded, run fast and come back. There is no true waitlist. It was chaotic at best. We... More

The food wasn't overly impressive. There are so many other options on the same street that offer more favorable food!

Pleasantly Surprised! We came on a Saturday night, we had to wait a bit to be seated because we had 11 in our party with no reservation and arrived at 10 pm. Once seated the service was prompt and the traditional dress was a lovely addition. There was a decent selection of food for most people. I was able to... More

Great food, portions are huge. The staff is very friendly and efficient. My wife ordered the Kan Kan and it is delicious and big enough to feed three people. The drinks are too notch. I'd return again.

Of the meals we had while visiting Puerto Rico, Raices was one of our favorites! The traditional attire, special attention while providing service and the authenticity of the cuisine were great! Highly recommend the steak with the chimichurri, the appetizers and especially their tres leches. We were celebrating an engagement and they surprised us with a beautiful song and another... More

Great place for a family dinner after a day of touring Old San Juan. I want to give a shout out to the lovely, and vivacious Melissa, our waitress. We were a mini-mob with lots of age specific needs: 4-month old baby, four Boricua sisters, two husbands, two adult daughters, our Mamí and delightful new Bajan mother-in-law, plus our Tio... More

The service was slow, my fish was lukewarm and my friends ribs were hard to cut off the bone. They gave us a coconut flan to apologize for it. It was excellent.
