The food was great but my waiter was horrible he was suppose to be more interactive with us like all the other tables around us smh and he ruined my husband birthday cake surprise then to top things off when I paid the bill I knew the tip wasn’t included and I didn’t give him a tip so he came back to the table with my bill and demanded a tip smh so overall the food was great but my waiter would be the only reason I wouldn’t return because he didn’t give us a ninja experience

So much fun at Ninja! Fair warning, there are a lot of children at the restaurant so if that’s not your thing then definitely look elsewhere. The ninjas do keep the kids highly entertained so I wasn’t bothered at all - it was very cute to see them running around in their ninja garb! The miso lobster bisque was absolutely incredible. Probably my favorite thing I ate!

I wish I could give this restaurant negative stars. It was the worst dining experience I’ve had in a long time. The food was ridiculously overpriced but utterly inedible. I felt conned after leaving.

This is a tourist trap. What they are mostly selling is a lot of scare. The main ninja activity here is waiters jumping out of corners and springing toward your table. The cave-like atmosphere of the place is fun. The food is a true C-. I had ignored the bad reviews and assumed it couldn't have been as mediocre as I imagined, but it is. We brought my 8- and 10-year olds here to celebrate a couple things. They are easy to please but were disappointed.

Experience was nice but the food was okay, not worth the price at all... my husband ordered grilled lobster tails that was 30 bucks which is not horrible except the lobster tail were really small and it was served with tater tots which kind of threw the meal off

It was a great experience. Second year we celebrated my boyfriend's birthday there and it's still so much fun. Our "Ninja" was so creative on entertaining the whole party.

We had a great time at Ninja New York! It was my 6 year old son's favorite part of our whole trip to NYC. It was so fun! Great food and great staff, highly recommend.

Took my son out to celebrate his birthday. Our sever, Ninja Rick, was great and made the experience enjoyable. I thought there would be more variety to the menu. My son and I ordered steak and found it be dry even with the spicy BBQ sauce on the side. Sushi, calamari and rice cakes were delicious.

I would recommend that you try Ninja at least one time for the experience and the presentation!

Do not waste your time on Ninja New York. We ordered a variety of dishes, all of which were severely under-flavored. The waiters were rude, and they were simply going through the motions. In the city of theatre, I don’t think it would be difficult find staff with personalities. The ambiance was creative, but it didn’t make up for our awful experience.

Food is way overrated. Feels very similar to a Disney experience. Crappy food but great entertainment for the kids.

3rd time there. Service was horrible. Brought us down to a waiting area w 3 other families. We were blocking kitchen door.

Everything was rushed. Waiter barely did any ninja moves. Gave us check w our dessert. Then took it back while my husband was still eating. Husband had to say that he didn’t even look at the check yet nor put in a credit card.

Absolutely horrible. Huge thumbs down. I’ve been telling everyone I know to stay away. It was barely 7:30 and he was trying to rush us out.

Disgusting.

Tons of fun. Highly recommend it. It's a little pricey for what it is but the food is actually pretty good. The ninjas are great and it's fun/not serious. Kids will love it but so will adults.

We were celebrating birthday of my twins.
Other than difficulty of getting a reservation for a large group everything else was superb!
From the ambience to service to dishes with special effects to the quality of food served , all were great!
My boys also greatly enjoyed the magician who popped in with some tricks.
We tried various dishes from fish to meat and all were above what I expected.
Nicely done! Than you Ninja!

We had dinner. We ordered items that a theatrical presentation indicated by a ninja star next to them. The food was good. It was expensive however. Overall we enjoyed the experience. And the gift shop items!

It was my son's 12th birthday and I had to ask for interaction from the "ninja's" I felt that they could of done more for us. The presentation for a 12-year-old birthday was very weak and for the money I spent I am very disappointed.

Nice place. Specially for kids, out of the ordinary. Food was not the best. Small rolls, pricy for the small portions. Very good magician.

If you are looking for a romantic place, don’t go to Ninja. If you are looking for fun while eating delicious food, do not hesitate. You will be surprised ! My three teens had the best time in a restaurant of their lives!

The place was great they did a magic show for my kids at the table which they loved and sang happy birthday to my oldest. The best part was because they randomly popped out of different places and kept scaring my wife she refused to go. To the bathroom alone lol.
