    My boyfriend & I decided to bring my mother there for her birthday to have brunch. I booked the reservation online & ordered flowers to be delivered to our table. The staff was extremely pleasant & accommodating. They even sang happy birthday to my mom which she loved in addition to the food. My mom is a foodie & tough critic so when she said she enjoyed the food & was inspired by some of the dishes I was ecstatic. Bogota is for me & my boyfriend our favorite neighborhood restaurant. We love the menu options & friendly service. Thank you for making my mother's birthday brunch a special & memorable event. She said this was her best birthday in a long time. You all helped us to make that happen.

    Had a table for 8 at 8 pm, folks showed up around 8:30 and they had no problem seating us then. We had great drinks, good food, and a lively time. Free cake for the birthday boy and a happy birthday song was really special. People at neighboring tables started clapping and singing too and it was festive without being too loud, and while the place is big it felt intimate being with friends and loved ones. Highly recommended!

    My only complaint was with the skirt steak, I asked for it to be cooked medium well and it was well done. It was a little rubbery with no flavor at all, I had to use the green aji sauce to help it out and ended up not eating it all. I don't want salty food but I do expect seasoning and some flavor considering the rave reviews and the "A" grading it received. This is a neighborhood gem and I wouldn't suggest expansion at all, very cozy. We had a 6:30 reservation on a Saturday and there were already peaople at the bar waiting for a table. By 7ish, the place was popping w/people, not an empty table in sight. I noticed that there was a patio dining area in which my husband said was nice, he noticed it while using the restroom.

    I have had better. The food was tasty, however the cilantro mashed potatoes were cold and the salmon was very rare. We hadn't finished the appetizers, when the main course arrived. They hadn't cleared off the table with the appetizers so we were handing off dishes to the waiters. I would not go back but based on the crowd they must be doing something right.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
