Such an excellent dining experience. The server was more than knowledgeable about the gluten free options, which were creative and divinely flavorful. I stuffed myself and had the wine pairings. The chef prepared something special for my non-celiac son and he ordered seconds and said it was “amazing.” This was more expensive than most restaurants where we eat, but it was worth it.

Excellent service, all waitresses were notified of my celiac and they made special courses and dessert for me. Someone from the kitchen went personally to explain to me what precautions they were taking. Food was amazing. (It’s expensive)

Easily the best meal (and most expensive) I’ve ever eaten in my life - the waitress knew when we arrived about the celiac from our reservation and helped guide us through the menu. The white bean soup was incredible - will be thinking about it for the rest of my life!

The meal and service were absolutely incredible. What an amazing experience! Complete gluten free experts! My favorite was the lobster risotto. Their signature white bean soup - no words for the flavorful goodness! My husband had the pork belly - melt in your mouth delicious! My filet mignon was also divine. And the caramel crème brûlée - just wow! We drove over an hour to come here for dinner from our resort and it was definitely worth it! This is fine dining at its best.

Wow! Highly recommended for an amazing gluten free meal. The server Eric was so knowledgeable and made us feel completely reassured about what could and could not be gluten free. Almost the entire menu can be made gf, only reason pastas aren’t gluten free. We had delicious ceviche, soup, risotto, pork belly, creme brûlée. No issues as a celiac at all. You will love this meal.

Multiple gf options. This is a 4-6 course meal that is truly an experience. Very few options can’t be made gf. They even made me a gf and dairy free dessert. The servers were very kind and attentive.

This is an upper end, 4,5 or 6 course meal restaurant. Of a few dozen choices, only two had gluten and the rest are naturally gluten free. However, only two of the six desserts were gluten free. The food was excellent and it is as much an experience as it is a meal.

The cost is $75-95 per person, but the quality is there. The white bean soup (I kid you not) was the favorite of the table. Like many of you, I am tired o creme brûlée’s, but this is the second best one I have ever had. (The first. Since you asked, is the passion fruit creme brûlée at Mommas Fishhouse in Maui.)

Can’t say enough about what a special meal this was for our GF family. The chef really knows special diets and we had a 5-course feast of beautiful food. Can’t wait to come back.

Not really geared towards kids. We brought our son who is picky and he ordered a pasta off the menu. He didn’t want to eat it. The server, Jesus, went back and told the chef. He came out and asked my son what his favorite pasta is. He made two dishes for him!! I have worked in the restaurant business all my life. I have never seen a chef go out of his way like this. Jesus hung at our table and taught my kids how to fold the napkins. They loved him. Super polite and sweet. Go to this restaurant. You won’t be disappointed. Btw only 3 items on the menu that aren’t gf. My older daughter was super happy!!!

Amazing! Incredible! Don’t miss it! This is THE place to go in San Juan. The food, the staff, the chef, the ambiance, it has it all! We spoke with Peter, the chef and owner, and he intentionally tries not to use gluten in his food. All but two dishes on the expansive menu are GF. It was my wife’s birthday and he made her a special GF dessert. One of the best meals of our lives. Really. Do. Not. Miss. This. Place!

This place...is incredible! Do yourself a favor, gluten free or not, this is an experience. Traveling as a celiac, I use this app to find places for me that is safe. Out of the entire menu there is like two items that have gluten in them. The staff is very knowledgeable about the food and their wine. I felt safe and was able to pick off of my husband’s plate - which virtually never happens. After seeing this place on The Profit, they have gone above and beyond to repair the damage left from the hurricane. The food, the atmosphere and the staff are absolutely extraordinary. This is a must...

Amazing food if you're wanting to splurge for something special! We did the 4 course meal and the staff was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating with gf requests. Even received a complimentary dish from chef, who personally spoke to us about the courses. Would highly recommend! One of the best meals I've ever had!

Fabulous! Everything from the food to the service to the decor. Had one of the four-, five-, or six-course pre-fixe menus, but really you choose off of the menu which items you want (only one entree and dessert however). I had ceviche, heirloom golden beets, lobster risotto, branzino fish for dinner, and was so full I just had fresh fruit and sorbet. Each dish was perfectly seasoned and delicious! Cannot wait to go back!

Marmalade serves only 4, 5 or 6 courses meals. Selections are made by you the diner. But I also think this should be a "$$$" and not a "$$". The food and serves is great. Called ahead of time to check on the menu. I think there was only a couple of things that had gluten on the menu. I would defiantly go again.

The staff is very knowledgeable about gluten free. The food and atmosphere are great! We sat at the bar one night and the next night we got the "honeymoon table". Both were terrific. Highly recommend this restaurant for the gluten free, adventurous, gourmet eater.

Best experience ever! They only have four dishes that contain gluten! The waiter knew what flours were in which dish and also the chef gave us a free sample of his famous soup (YUM). Dessert was also fantastic! Must stop when in Puerto Rico!! My new favorite place :)

This restaurant was absolutely fabulous. when I arrived, I mentioned to our waiter that I had come for the gluten free options. he immediately took me through the whole menu, explaining what flours were used in the pastas, what kinds of substitutes they make to adapt their non gluten free menu for gluten free dining. They have great options. in addition, the food was delicious and the chef came to check on us during our meal to find out how everything was. It was all fabulous!

Recommended by our hotel for gluten free options. By far one of my best meals ever! Will accommodate special requests--i.e. Chicken without the breading. Knowledgable and friendly staff. Beautiful! Chef came out to talk to us. Very expensive but very special!

It's owned by parents of a gluten free child. They went out of their way to serve us and make our visit enjoyable, even though we have a toddler and they don't generally serve small children (<7). I had the caprese pasta - homemade pasta he makes with sundried tomato flour and organic eggs, ceviche that was divine, and an excellent Cabernet. It is pricey, portions are modest but not ridiculously tiny, and the atmosphere is lovely.
