Made reservations because I was warned that the Restuarant is small and wait times can be long on the weekends...we arrive about 30mins early and we notice several tables available but we’re told to wait by the bar(which is about 3ft long) and in the way of the wait staff. The front staff are extremely disorganized, as patrons were leaving, you would think they would clear the table and quickly make it available for customers who are waiting but no. As tables were cleared no one was communicating with the front staff and the front staff was too busy conversations to take a quick glance at what’s available. I had to go and inform the staff that there were multiple tables available and that we were waiting, the staff response was “we were looking for you”, we were literally 15ft feet away at the bar they told us to wait at, watching them do nothing. The waitress took forever to take our order, offered no suggestions and seemed to be disinterested...never even checking on us during our meals, we had to get someone else’s attention to get silverware and salt & pepper. The food, mediocre at best; small over-priced portions. Our mofongos were bland and under-cooked, carne frita was over-cooked and hard and the tostones tasted as if they were reheated. Coffee and milk comes in a small 4oz cup for $3 with no refills (WTF!)
Will never go again or recommend to anyone I like!

Arrived 7:43pm for a 7:30 reservation. Call ahead to inform hostess we would be late. When we arrived we were told the wait would be 15 min. About 10 min late we were told that our wait would be 1 hour because we were more than 15 min late (which we were not). Some kind of punishment policy? Very weird. A real turn-off. Needless to say we left. (It was very busy and the food looked great).

Food was good, can improve customer service . It’s really loud. I think they should not take reservations after 10 because they start to rush you out the door. It’s loud in there . They do have a lady singing and she’s awesome .. try the seafood paella and passion fruit mojitos

La comida súper sabrosa. El asopao de mariscos con muchos mariscos! Muchos mejillones pulpo calamares camarones y hasta un rabo de langosta. El trifongo con chicharrón delicioso. Y la langosta en salsa criolla buenísima. La chica que nos atendió fue muy amable. De seguro volvería en una próxima visita a Boston.

The staff is friendly. Although some of them don't speak English, service was provided with a smile. The food is delicious.

The restaurant is very small and the parking in the South End is horrible. Open Table says there is complimentary valet parking beginning Friday's at 5:00pm. However, we arrived after 6:30pm Friday and was charged $5 for valet parking. They said they started charging in January. It's my fault for not verifying this before making my reservations.

I don't like to pay to park at a restaurant. Thus, I prefer to dine in the suburbs. So unless they start back providing complimentary valet parking, I won't dine there again.

Overall the experience was enjoyable, my only complaints would be after waiting for a while for the food it was cold when arrived. Ambience is nice, it came as a surprise the lack of well seasoning for "puertorican food".
