    The service was really and they are very friendly. Drinks were amazing. Only thing is that the food was cold. This is like my 3rd time being there and each time by food is cold. Not sure on the reason as of why but needs to be taken care of.

    Omg what a cool restaurant! I was looking for a unique date night spot for my husband and I didn’t wanna pay for parking in Boston, we love both sushi and Latin food so I thought we would give this restaurant a try. I loved the music, the restaurant was so cool inside, the drinks were actually really strong, and the food was amazing and delicious! Our waiter, German, was so attentive to our needs and extremely professional. It is very clear to me that this restaurant is gourmet because the food was high end, and everyone was dressed up. It is set in an urban, Dominican neighborhood, that is very alive with food, music, and motorcycles. There were also 4 birthdays at the restaurant and all the wait staff came out to sing to them. I will say that I spent more than I expected to; we each got two alcoholic drinks, and we each got sushi, and the total came to $120 before the tip. All that being said my husband and I don’t go out to dinner very often and so I would do it once in a while, and it was worth every penny.

    Thanks so much, Julia! We can't wait to serve you again soon!

    We dine in the patio which is a bit more quiet. We ordered sushi for appetizers, and those came out pretty quickly. Our entrees did take a bit long to come out which meant some items on our plates were cold. But overall our entrees were great and very flavorful. The drinks were delicious!

    This place definitely isn’t what it used to be. Food was either under or over cooked, including the desserts. The portions are smaller than before for the same price. The restrooms could also use some tlc. Unfortunately will not be returning there.

    The waitress or waiter just need to communicate little better with the guest. We sat down got a wobbly table which we took the initiative to place a paper underneath the leg so it can be more stable. The waiter gave us a 1 page drink menu and walked away never told us to view the food list u must scan the code to see full menu. I thought he gave us the drink menu to start and the food menu would be brought out later that wasn't the case. The food took forever to come out for a party of 4 it was alittle after 9:30pm and it was slow. The food was delicious but service was slow.

    I was really excited to go to this restaurant but it did not live up to the hype. The bathrooms were dirty. The food was mediocre. The only thing that saved them was the waiter her was great he was constantly checking on us. Our food was given to a different table so some ate while the other waited. I wouldn’t go there again.

    Overall enjoyed El Ninja. It was just too cold for my liking and the music was fun but a little too loud, trying to have a conversation with my husband had to raise my voice. The food was great, only criticism... the churrasco in the Taki Taki roll was over cooked, I would have liked it more medium rare. The grilled octopus appetizer and the Hana roll were sooooo goood. I will totally go again. Bring some friends for a ladies night. Their strawberry mojito and classic margarita were great.

    The customer service was great! They came over removed plates when needed. The waiter gave great suggestions! The henny pina colada was delicious and strong! The music was a bit loud but it fit the setting. The neighborhood is not the best but I'm from this area and it's nice that it's changing. I wasn't expecting the 18% gratuity included in the price but I understand that they want to make sure their waiters get their tip. The food was great and very authentic! I was impressed at the quality!

    Yesterday was my 2nd time there. First time was great this 2nd time, not so much. The atmosphere was nice, music was a bit on the louder side, but I’m ok with that. The waitress was super nice & friendly, but the hostess was pretty rude. The ticket times for our food was long but my family & I were ok as we were catching up anyway. Fast forward to the end of our meal, we were debating on dessert but decided to pass as we still had our drinks to finish (almost full). The hostess paced by our table stared at us then came up to our table & said “you’ve been here for 4hrs, company policy is only 1.5 hrs, & I extended it but you need to leave now because of other reservations & they’re waiting for 15 mins” First, that is not how you approach your guest, second she was wrong, reservation was at 6:30pm & it was 9pm, that’s 2.5hrs. Our apps took 40 mins, entrees over 1hr 20 mins & drinks 7 mins and 1st round was warm. In addition, we had to wait 15 min for our table which is ok and normal. The host came up to us right after we paid the bill, which we did because we were leaving after the drinks. So if the policy is to leave after 1.5hrs were we supposed to leave right when we got our food? Were we not allowed to enjoy our meal? The hostess made the experience uncomfortable & uneasy. She didn’t mention the policy before seating us either. If this is such an enforced policy, the food ticket times should be better managed. The hostess only came to our table, but there was a table next to us who was sat before us and she did not approach them. The waitress again was very nice & even came back up to us afterwards to ensure we were ok & asked if we needed anything. We were leaving anyway but appreciated her check-in after the rude hostess.
