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.

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!
