    We started with some traditional Caipirinhas. With so many options on the menu we wanted to try a little bit of everything- empanadas, patacones, tortilla soup, and arepas. The tortilla soup was amazing and hands down my favorite. More importantly, the portion sizes are enormous! The empanada sampler alone could be a entree. We ended up taking most of the food to go with us. We would definitely come here again!!

    I have visited Bogota Latin Bistro several times and enjoyed myself thoroughly, and my experience on this occasion was no different. Our server, Joanna, was wonderful and attentive. She was thoughtful, pleasant and polite and answered all of the questions at the table with a solid working knowledge of the menu. I could not have asked for a better host for our celebration. She even offered to take pictures of the table. The food here is amazing too, great portions, incredible flavor and you cannot go without having the Pan de Bono with fresh Guava butter! I would also HIGHLY recommend the breakfast tacos, and the coconut flan. Basically, everything is fantastic and you will not leave hungry or disappointed!

    Dined on 8/16/2014
    My family and I were very excited to eat at Bogota and decided to make a reservation for 4.When we arrived, we were seated at a corner table by the bussing station. We would have liked to be offered a table in the patio. Also, my mother would be splashed by water everytime the buser would clean the plates.We were not given share plates and extra napkins for the appetizers. Food was so-so.But did not enjoy shouting my order since the server could not hear me because of the loud music. Finally, it's against the law to include gratuity on a bill. Their loophole is gratuity included on a table of 5 or more- we were only 4. As a server, I will always give 25% or more whether I was satisfied or not with the service.I will not be returning.

    From the moment my family and arrived it was terrible. The place is small and tables were too close and my chair was wobbling so I had to switch it with another. Now the food 👎 my wife and daughter and wife ordered the shrimp with garlic that looked like the 7 shrimp were swimming in a pool of milk my other daughter had a chicken quesadilla with a side of guacamole that was $2 extra and was about 2 tablespoons and she said it wasn't that good and I made better guacamole at home for her. Are you ready for this I ordered the crusted salmon that was raw they took it back to kitchen and a few minutes later my plate with only my veggies was returned to me a few minutes later the fish in a small plate was surely microwaved and coconut 🍤 bad.

    Dined on 8/5/2014
    This place came highly recommended and it was such a disappointment. They were out of something from EVERY course that we ordered. In addition, I had asked the waitress to put a candle in our dessert to sing happy birthday to my boyfriend and the food runner brought the dessert to the table with nothing, realized it was supposed to be a surprise and took the dessert back before they came back with a candle and people to sing. The surprise was ruined. After we had so many issues they never even offered to make it right (discount something, free dessert, etc.). The food and drinks were very overpriced and not worth it. Would NOT go back.

  • Great Service, Food not Colombian
    Foodielovesfood
    Dined on 7/29/2014
    We had a great time when we dined at Bogotá. The service was great, and the number of items on the menu was impressive. The food is not authentic Colombian. I was disappointed because the flavors had been given a slight Mexican flare (the hogao, the ceviche, the ajiaco). For someone who has not experienced Colombian food and who is interested Latin American fusion, this would be a great place. For someone interested in tasting authentic Colombian cuisine, be sure to ask which recipes have been maintained without the added sabor mexicano.

    It was our 4x there. Make a reservation, it helps. We usually start with the shrimp ceviche. It's the best ever. Then the Caribbean breakfast. Also try the morcilla. Not as great as my mom's, but good enough. All in all, the food is good, the service is attentive and I will be back.

    Went with hubby and another couple to dinner this past Saturday night. We started off with a pitcher of margaritas which was very good and strong. We shared the nachos that were very tasty though not as hot as we would have liked. I had the fish tacos with a side of coconut rice and sweet plantains. Every bite was delicious. My friends all enjoyed everything they ate. We would all recommend and come back in a heartbeat.

    This was my third time at Bogota. The food is always delicious, when in doubt go with the Arroz con pollo; amazing. The Colombian platter is a nice variety and excellent as well. We started with the empanada sampler and bean dip sampler, both as expected. Service was solid but not great but we were not in any sort of rush so we couldn't have cared less. Will go back very soon.

    Went for brunch on Father's Day. Had the shrimp cerviche & Caribbean breakfast. Everything was delicious. We tried the morcilla. My mom makes the best. This was one was good. Some of the islands in the Caribbean make it better, but the best can be found in Dominica. The waitress was friendly, the service was exceptional. I have been there 2x b4 for brunch. I hope to revisit for dinner. Wo pa Arepa.

    This was *delicious* -- the pernil, the sangria, the arroz con pollo, the flan, everything was steeped in flavor (and the pernil, in particular, tasted like it had been sitting in delicious marinade for hours). And the waitress was friendly, the host was very understanding about my reservation being HALF AN HOUR late, and the noise level totally acceptable for hearing my dining companion. I wasn't on top of my neighbor, though the bar was going wild over the World Cup -- I could hear my dining pal just fine, and the excitement and happiness in the room just made the food taste better! If that's even possible.

    Happy to finally make it to Bogota Latin Bistro! I was pleasantly surprised to find a place in Brooklyn that offers well made Colombian food and honors the Colombian culture and its cuisine without compromising its original flavors and sazon. The service was excellent, the drinks were delicious … The Colombia Rum Punch was incredible! Too bad I was driving… This is a kid friendly restaurant and great for uncomplicated, relax, fun gatherings. We are definitely returning very soon to Bogota Latin Bistro.
