    Food was delicious and service supreme. Our waiter took the time to explain all dishes. Had a wonderful eating experience- I am not a foody - yet I thought it was amazing. I will definitely return.

    The service performance overall was not great and the attitude of some waiters was not nice. When some plates arrived they spoke very fast as if they had no time to explain. Then had to re-ask another waiter to make the plate introduction properly. I have to say that the official guy that served us was very nice, polite.

    Overpriced items. Get prepared to pay $7 for glass of water. Less portions but decent quality. I have experienced delayed service due to kitchen order mess up. Ended up spending 2 hrs at the restaurant.

    The wait staff and the food was amazing. The level of knowledge with pairings was excellent. The manager/owner(not sure) was present and communicating with every table. I was surprised he never acknowledged our table. A manager/owner visit to my table did not take away from the exceptional time we had. Kristin and David

    Dinner here was absolutely mind blowing, and very delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant, our waitress Nicole was an absolute pleasure, I loved all of her recommendations. We ended up doing the five course tasting and also adding additional dishes along with the wine pairing, I can honestly say that not one thing was disappointing.do not hesitate and go!!!! Every single bite is completely worth it.

    Tried the tasting menu x2. Most fished missed the mark by lack of flavor. Only 2 dishes worth it, duck Padilla and cacao desert. Michelin star attempt but not worth the prices.

    This experience was fantastic! The food was varied and delicious, the service was incredible, and it was overall a very pleasant time. The servers and kitchen were very accommodating of my allergies, working with me to make the dishes I wanted to try safe to do so. They even surprised me with a little dessert for my birthday! Overall would give it a 10/10 and would recommend it to all of my friends. Just beware that cocktails are not included in the tasting menu price and can stack up quickly (but they’re so unique and tasty it’s worth it!)

    Cocina Abierta delivered the best dining experience we’ve ever had in Puerto Rico. Every dish was carefully curated, the flavors were beyond anything I’ve ever had before and it surpassed all my expectations! We paid $50 for 5 courses, each course was so delicious- the value is unreal! Gracias Cocina Abierta por una cena tan agradable!

    We had an extraordinary dinner at Cocina Abierta. The service was excellent; our server was so kind and very helpful in suggesting how we could create a vegan tasting from that evening’s menu. Every dish was both elegant and delicious. It was obvious in the depth and complexity of flavors that everything was thoughtfully prepared with real love and creativity. It was my birthday. and they brought out a delicious sorbet with a candle and sang happy birthday - a lovely touch to complete one of the best meals I’ve had anywhere!
