    It was a long time ago after we went back for dinner last night. Food taste was good, presentation was not the best as is used to be. Service was very poor, when our waitress Stephanie greet the table and took the order was great. We never see her again after this, a couple others servers came to deliver our food missing my husband order which they realized until the end. It was a special occasion celebration and they don’t even acknowledged. At the end, the supervisor on duty came to the table to see how the food was and this is when we told her my husband never get his dinner order. She offered to give us a complementary dessert which it was delivered when dinner plates were still at the table and didn’t give us the dessert choices or after dinner drinks. Very disappointing dinner experience definitely wouldn’t recommended. Hope they are able to improve because they used to be very good.

    I’ve been to this restaurant a few times and each time it’s a much worse experience than the last. The last visit I remember the long wait for service and having the waitress spill the whole plate of beans on me. This time around, we were seated quickly however the service was super slow. The drinks were done before the appetizers arrived, the entree took more than an hour to come out and I ordered promptly. The food could’ve been better but it wasn’t. The steak was dry, the mofongo was dry and even the service was dry. After many chances, I will not be visiting this restaurant again. The place is nice but they don’t even play music anymore :(

    Good prices for the food, drinks are a miss or hit. The only bad thing is that gratuity is added even when the group is not even six. Totally fine is the tip are about to be added but the server should said something.

    The food was good, Drinks were ridiculously expensive I'm talking 25 dollars for a mixed drink 😵‍💫. Didn't know that. There are no prices on the menu. It could of been prepped and cleaned a little better as well. Thr servers were nice and knowledgeable.

    The food was delicious, but the tables are so close to each other that its uncomftarble. The Tip is charge automatcaly so the waitress gives you a very poor services. The are NOT polite, they do not come to the table for refills or to take your diches away, they DONT care. Definitely they need better staff.

    Food was great. Menu did not have prices, which was very wrong! Then they added 18% tip (for two) without telling us; good thing we looked at the bill. It’s too bad, because this is a nice place, but management is (obviously) money hungry.

    First time at Vejigantes! Glad I made a reservation because it was pretty busy already at 5:30 on a Saturday. We ordered the app sampler and mofongo sampler. This was my first time having Puerto Rican food. A lot of it was fried, which was not super ideal, but most of it tasted good! TBH, I'm not a huge fan of mofongo, but I'm sure many others enjoy it. We also got a pina colada and guava mojito which were very good. Our waitress was very nice! One critique about the ambience was that the tables were very close together so it felt as if we were dining with the couples on either side of us lol. It's a small restaurant, so I get that they want to fit as many people in there as possible, but maybe spread the tables apart a little more.
