Seeking recommendations and info for San Juan dinner

svicious | Jan 17, 2009 07:43 PM

My wife's birthday will soon be spent in San Juan and we would like to find a nice place for it. I have read a LOT of conflicting information on where to go, here and elsewhere, as well as many dissenting points of view. I think I am suffering from "analysis paralysis" and am honestly at a loss so I will describe what we are ideally seeking and see if it rings a bell with anyone.

We prefer a romatntic spot without tables on top of each other and not over-the-top noisy. No bonus points for overly trendy; classy and unique are more desirable. An outdoor dining option would be a plus. Food should be local or have a definite local influence. Pricing is less important than value; I don't mind paying a lot for top-notch food and service but I don't have a lot of tolerance for feeling "ripped off" or dropping a couple hundred bucks and going home hungry. Location should be in OSJ or Condado. Good wine list or memorable local drinks are a big plus.

Also, not familar with dinner scene in San Juan dress in San Juan, any tips on typical dinner dress at the nicer places would be helpful. Thank you.
