1919 RESTAURANT, San Juan – Menu, Prices & Restaurant Reviews – Tripadvisor

I can't say enough. I chose to go to 1919 as a "once in a lifetime experience" and boy was it! The service was amazing. From the time I walked into the Vanderbilt until I left it was 100%. I entered the lobby and let…them know I had a reservation, could they point me to the restaurant. The young man, walked me there until we got to the hostess. Tiffany was great! Very friendly and funny. She seated my right away and let me know who my servers would be. I had Juan and William. What can I say? This was fine dining at it's best. Both were amazing. William walked me through their offerings (prix fix menu) and made suggestions, I selected 2 of the ones he suggested. The whole experience was great. The food was 5 start worthy for sure. I tried dishes I had never had and loved each bite. For the 1st course I had the arugula and watercress salad with goat cheese dressing, 2nd course the gnocchetti with ratatouille! The 3rd course I tried the bronzino (William recommended. The 4th course I had the brioche bread pudding. Juan served me my champagne (total splurge) and perrier….he was delightful. Before the meal starts they bring a bread roll with softened french butter and an amuse bouche to start the meal. Before dessert you get another amuse to get your ready for dessert and after you get 4 petite sample desserts. When leaving…they give you a mini banana bread to take home. It took all of my energy to not make reservations for the next 4 nights!!!
