First time in ninja honestly the best time, the only gripe is obviously the price but in return the service and overall enthusiasm by the employees is top notched. Sad to say that they are closed now they should come back or relocate cause I would definitely come back

It felt very hit or miss. Some tables received members of the cast conducting magic and varying entertainment. Unfortunately there were no presentations of any kind at our table. We went there for the experience, but left feeling a little underwhelmed. That coupled with the higher prices for food that was just ok, downgraded our experience.

If you’re looking for a fun night especially with kids in tow go here. My 8&11 yo loved it. They loved the ninja interactions as soon as we walked into the place. My son loves magic so the wandering magician was an added bonus. He did expect tips but it was worth it. Good presentation was cool experience with each dish we ordered. Expect nyc prices. Edamame that’s normally $4/5 at home was $10. Overall everyone gave it a thumbs up so for dinner and show it was a good deal.

Took my godson while I was visiting NYC and it was a great experience that was memorable. We both had such fun with the ninja surprise visits! The presentation of the food was impressive but more importantly onolious! I have already recommended it to several friends.

Went for my sons 15th birthday and we had a blast. The waitstaff was amazing. We had our own private room. The food as better than most places we have been to that offer “dinner and a show”. Definitely going back again

It was my eldest sons birthday and he likes Ninja. We decided to book a reservation and he was surprised. Not only our birthday boy who had a blast but out little one too, who is a 4 yrs old. It's was a unique and wonderful experience for us. My husband and I was had a wonderful experience aswell, it is highly recommendable. The food, service and presentation are great!

My go-to spot for infrequent NYC visitors that would like a bit more of an experience surrounding their meal. The food variety and preparation are spot-on, whereas each additional touch - for demonstration purposes - serves a purpose of finishing the taste of whatever the dish/drink may be. A+ every time

The service was great. Our waitress who I cannot remember her name was terrific. Everyone was in character and none of it looked forced which was awesome. My one ask would have been to be seated in one of the den looking booths since the table we were sat at was pretty cramped with only 4 people. The food was awesome I only wish that if I’m paying $41 for steak that a side would come with that. The magic show was incredible. Would definitely recommend this place to a friend.

The food was not tasty at all. At the end of the dinner nothing unusual, that we expected, had happened to us so far. No surprises or scary stuff of any kind! I complained about it, since this was just like an ordinary restaurant, only with worse food and lots of kids running around. Then came a magician that made two very simple tricks that I've seen many many times before, to our table. Really boring and not worth to spend an evening there.

Disney Ninja style. Cool atmosphere and fun staff but loud and really low quality high price food. Fun magic show. Mainly good for little boys, kids that are into ninjas. Kind of a torture of poor food, overstimulation and high prices for parents.

We felt that the food was very expensive and honestly, the “presentation” they sell on many of the meals was pretty lame (most consisted of just a single karate chop or elevated scream from the waitstaff). We saw other tables receiving more individualized service/presentations, and were disappointed, as we’d really expected more for the cost!

I heard about Ninja through a friend of mine and I am so happy I went. Great restaurant , fun but cozy atmosphere. I took my boyfriend and he couldn't stop smiling from the ninjas to the decor. And the food was yummy as well. Thank You Ninja NewYork!

The evening was really great. We tried their set menu for Valentine’s Day and it was extremely delicious and quite fun! The ambience was nice as it had little private booths for each party so you had your own experience. Restrooms were beautiful and all of the staff were friendly and fun and very accommodating!
Really a great experience

We truly enjoyed our experience from start. The only thing that really concerned us was when the waitress lit my husbands 🥩steak on fire & a Fireball flew onto my husbands shirt & sauce got on his shirt not to mention he could have caught on fire. We contacted management to let them know. Safety issue! Besides that staff & experience was entertaining for the kids!

The experience there was one word...AMAZING, we came here for Valentine’s Day and they did nothing short but deliver on everything. Food was amazing and prepared As if a top chef made it himself, the presentation was beautiful, the staff were knowledgeable, gave recommendations, and stayed true to their characters. Will definitely be returning back
