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.

The place is beautiful and we were seated pretty promptly. Our waitress got our drink order (mango mojito, passion fruit margarita and margarita brava) and they came out fast and were delicious. We ordered relleno de papas, platanutres with guacamole and yuca frita con mojo as appetizers. The rellenos were wonderful, the rest were good. For our meal we split the 3 mofongo sampler and the bistec encebollado with arroz con gandules. The mofongos were all good. The bistec was just ok, nicely seasoned but too tough. I am used to bistec encebollado that is so tender that you don't need a knife. This one wasn't. I found the arroz con gandules dry and a bit flavorless. The one I cook is much better. :)

My biggest issue is that we fell rushed the entire meal. The waitress kept coming back asking if we wanted a doggy bag even though we had told her that we were still working on it. Our (2nd) drinks were almost full when they started to clear our table. Puerto Ricans dinners are all about chatting and having a relaxed time, not being rushed. Despite the food being good, I don't know if I will return.

While everything was great, but the appetizers were outstanding! I highly recommend getting a bunch of apps to share with friends or just for yourself! The tostones with crab stew was one of the best things I have ever eaten. The portions are plentiful and easily shareable!

Loved the tamarind margaritas!! The plantain chips served with guacamole and pico were an interesting variation to Nachos. I loved the chicken and chorizo paella! And the tres leches was yum!!

We didn’t really like that we had to ask for extra napkins or to have a water glass filled up but other than that everything was outstanding.

Second time going to the restaurant food is great. But I ordered the Paella Marinera obviously for one but I wanted it with the Plantain bowl the server never informed me that the one with the plantain bowl was for 2 people. So when i got the bill and it was 47 dollars I was shocked. I had talked to the one who was taking my bill and told her the issue but was not understanding and wouldnt adjust my bill! Never going back to this restaurant again!

The AC was off because front windows were a little open but inside was hot, ny whole table was sweating. Food was good and also every time they were to play the happy birthday song the speakers made a loud noise and the music was also loud. The place is good but they should think more about the comfort of their costumers which are the ones bringing business.

For some reason the food is not as good as before. Last time we went was over the holidays and it was still really good, but this time the food was not even close to what it used to be. The service was also slow.
