    We came to the El San Juan hotel from ah hour away specifically to hear a salsa band — as informed by the entertainment receptionist I spoke to on the phone. It turned out to be a Latin trio which was in fact terrific and very entertaining. And most pleasant and unexpected surprise was a group of three feather boa festooned female Latin beauties thrashing about to the hip-hop music. I was somewhat irked by the $50 per person reservation fee paid in advance, expecting it to be busier — again based on the receptionist’s phone reply. However, upon our arrival half an hour early arrival we had plenty of time to have chosen the same table. Our server was initially prompt and friendly, but through the evening four hour visit, he became less and less visible. The Philly sushi rolls, deep-fried cod “pancakes” and barbecue chicken wings were all fabulous. The interior areas and adornments in the lobby were very impressive and old-school as we had hoped based on its 1958 inception. The casino in the adjacent room was busy and colorful with the average much anticipated lemmings seated at most of the electronic one armed bandits. Well said, it was a memorable and lovely experience for the three of us.

    This is our second time that we went there more like a lounge table area and seats, but great place to sit if you have more than two for sure. We just had two so we ended up setting up the bar. Great sushi, and great bites to eat look at the menu first I had just a lot of everything on the menu. The last couple times I was there nothing was bad.

    The sushi ( spicy tuna roll) was excellent. Best I’ve had. The Caesar salad w chicken was awful. Chicken was dry and tasteless. Salad was dark green outer layers of romaine that was limp and tasteless. I was put at a table right out in the middle of the lobby where it was very noisy with zero privacy. I wish I had stuck to the sushi and asked to be seated at the king table next to the sushi chef. I also asked for Prosecco but waiter said they only had Kava, a Spanish wine that was the same. It was sour tasting. Don’t know if that was how it is supposed to taste it was old. Great place for sushi only based on my experience.

    Beautiful space and great music. Our server was excellent however the sushi wait is extreme. We did not get to try it because many people around us were waiting over an hour for theirs. !!Be aware the parking validation information listed here is NOT CORRECT. This restaurant outright REFUSES to validate parking.!!

    Started off a little rocky as the reservation was a late one so there was no host or server at the time; but the manager and bartender went above and beyond to ensure a great experience. Additionally, the sushi was fantastic. Definitely would come back.

    Server took forever. But the drinks were amazing. First band was pleasant. Second one a hell. They should just continue to attract the right people and not the old men literally chasing married women. Thank God my friends are cool but it felt awkward.
