Had a reservation at 12:30pm but I arrived earlier to try to find parking but I was lucky enough to find a spot right in from of the restaurant. Also, we was able to get a tablet before my reservation. Food and drinks was really good. The only thing that I didn’t like was that when we sat down it took a while for someone to come and take our order. Other then that I would definitely would go back.

Was expecting a very fancy Restaurant but it was very simple. It’s a small Restaurant and that is why you need reservations. We still had to wait outside even though we had reservations. They didn’t follow my request made on the reservation.
Food was very good but not out of the ordinary. Food presentation was not as advertised. Server was good and another person that walked around to make sure we were good.
We were seated inside glass cubicle that for two people feels really crowded.

Went for my birthday during the pandemic. Roll of the dice that I am so happy I made. Food is authentic and so well prepared.

I got the Triphongo - cassava, taro and plantains - with chicharron. The chicharron was crispy on the outside, tender & gooey on the inside, easy to chew and absolutely perfect. Great drinks. The crab empanada tasted strongly like crab - so crispy and good. Wife got chicken with creole sauce - tasted like swordfish, it was so good. All the food came out hot and fresh.

Service was outstanding. Very attentive and helpful without being overly involved.

Good Covid protection with plexiglass between every table.

Lively environment with attractive Puerto Rican masks on walls, old San Juan building motif and happy music playing at a decent volume.

Clearly this restaurant is an important part of the local community. We felt honored to be able to visit it. For two hours we felt like we were in Puerto Rico. And they sang happy birthday to me!

We were a party of 5 ladies celebrating a friends birthday. The waiter was really nice, since it’s a 90 minute due to covid-19 our waitress took longer to take our drink order and appetizers which took time from eating. The drinks and appetizers were the best except the dinner. Rice was not too good taste like rice was recooked needed more flavor and fried fish had absolutely no flavor. We had to rush and eat our dinner because another waiter was already coming to our table claiming our payment.
Food could of had more flavor. I’ve come plenty of times to this restaurant but this time was not too happy with it.

I always love coming to this restaurant because the food is just amazing, it reminds me so much of Puerto Rico. The staff are always friendly and the food service is hands-down the best. The only complaint I can make is that it’s really small inside and it’s always super crowded but that’s usually what happens when the restaurant is just that good. Highly recommend

I was a little late for my reservation but the lady at the front was very nice and squeezed us in. Our waiter was amazing. One of our plates was a little salty and the waiter took that off of our bill which was very much appreciated. Other than that everything was great! Definitely recommend

Food was very good, steak was burned😢. The waitress was very nice but the people in front were not, they were little rude. The place was mega crowded. Not sure if they are following Covid protocol. There’s a plastic between tables but they are very close.

It is entirely acceptable and indeed common, for a restaurant to add an additional 20% gratuity charge on a bill with 6 or more guests but we were charged 20% automatic gratuity for a party of 3.

Due to pandemic could not enjoy as we wanted to celebrate for my husbands birthday. 90 min table Limit and the hostess let us know that we have exceeded our time a while ago? I was craving Arroz con gandules and it seemed very over cooked. Though, The ambience was great

The Creole Sauce... very disappointing on something that is not hard to make. A month ago I had it on my mofongo and it was salty. This weekend ot tasted like someone added bottled taco salsa to the sauce...not pleasing to the palate.

I absolutely love this restaurant! I've lived in Boston for the past few years and struggled to find a great Puerto Rican spot. I've now been to this Vejigante Restaurant multiple times and even ordered through Uber Eats when I need my Puerto Rican fix. I have yet to have something that I didn't like, but my favorites are definitely the Churrascon con Salsa Chimichurri and Trifongo.

My friends and I had a good time! Food was great! However we felt rushed by the staff. It was a Wednesday night, we wanted to relax and have good time, but we hardly could because we were pretty much being signaled to pack up when we weren’t even done with our meals. We looked around and there was no other party waiting, and there were plenty of other tables. So it was awkward.

The service was not that good. We had to wait about 25 min to get seated and they messed up our food order. The food also came out at different times so some people were done eating by the time their meal came out. The food tasted good it was just the service.
