Bogota Latin Bistro
SO GLAD I WENT THERETHE FOOD WAS SO DELICIOUS AND THE SERVICE WAS AWESOME .6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMReally good food and great energy!My wife and I really enjoyed this place the other night. The food was excellent and the service was very good too. There is clearly an upbeat and positive energy about this place. The only negative I have is that we felt the drinks were skimpy. We will definitely be back!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMVery pleasant nightService was very friendly and attentive so was much appreciated. Overall most of the food was very tasty and most of my guest enjoyed their food. The food faves were the fish tacos, arroz con pollo and bandeja paisa. We also had the Virgin Mojito Lemonade which was really good if you didn't want something with alcohol. Only real complaint is that I was seated at a table where my seat the wall stuck out a bit and it felt a bit uncomfortable so my seat was length wise was shorter as well luckily I'm not too tall but would be definitely not be comfortable for someone taller. We were too full to get dessert so can't say much about that. But the overall experience was very good so I can see what the buzz was about.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place They neverLove this place They never disappoint. Good service. Everything6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food, Very Welcoming ServiceFrom the second we walked in, the staff was warm and greeted us as if it was their own home.
This place has an awesome kid friendly menu and also offers a toy to the kids! Staff make them feel welcome as well.
We all ordered 3 different salads with chicken added. The salads were just ok and the chicken (grilled and fried ones) were over cooked.
Though the more latin appetizers we ordered were excellent.
Next time, we will skip eating healthy at this place and just dive in to the good stuff!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat drinks and happy hourGreat drinks and happy hour all day Monday and Tuesday.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMUnbelievably good.The food was phenomenal; the service incredible and the atmosphere festive.

Our reservation seating was prompt, the greeter was welcoming and friendly and our waitress was upbeat and knowledgeable. The avocado salad appertivo was a good size and nicely chopped without being mashed and was also nicely seasoned, not too many onions. I also had a platano stuffed with shredded chicken apertivo that had my mouth wanting more. My pork was perfectly seasoned and my blank beans were authentic. My tres leche melted in my mouth and could be declared decadently blissful...my friends loved the churros and the flan was sinful. The Sangrita was an excellent combination. Seating is somewhat cramped but the experience is worth some closeness.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food great nightGreat atmosphere. Great food and wonderful service. Very welcoming all around.

The meal was outstanding and the service attentive and very helpful with menu and drink suggestions. I had the chorizo appetizer and paella entree, absolutely delicious, not to mention the watermelon margaritas. I go to several Nets games so this will be my new spot before/after the games. It's a very short walk to Barclays from the restaurant.

This is a fun place to go with a group of friends, and share apps and a pitcher of Mojitos.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceI had a great experience. It was a last minute decision to go to Bogota Latin Bistro on a Saturday night for dinner. I made the reservations on open table before I left my house. When I got there I didn't have to wait to be seated. Others coming in without reservations had a long wait. My husband and I loved it the prices were reasonable the plates are huge and there is so much good food to choose from I can't wait to go back and try another dish.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff was the best partThe staff was the best part of my Bogota Latin Bistro experience. Eager to help and always smiling and friendly! That really makes a difference for me. The food was great as well! They offer quite an extensive menu, so you should be able to find something for everyone.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Place!!Bogota was great! Very friendly, attentive and polite service, upbeat, happy atmosphere and delicious food. The menu was extensive and everything we ordered was fresh and very tasty. It's a much larger restaurant than I imagined and it was packed on a midweek night! I was glad we'd made a reservation. I ordered the garlic shrimp which came in a large shallow bowl with a garlic broth that was wonderful! The entrees come with 2 sides and I ordered sauteed spinach and tostones - delicious!! The empanadas we ordered for apps were also great and came with lovely condiments which we used throughout the meal. Add to that a perfect margarita and I was happy! Will return soon!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood GemI always enjoy Bogota.

The food is so unique compared to the other restaurants. There is so much to choose from and it is all delicious. I also love the way they identify gluten free and veg items on the menu. I highly recommend Bogota.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great. WentThe food was great. Went with 6 people and was lucky to get the corner window seat!

It is so exciting to have a Latin restaurant that offers delicious vegetarian options!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!I love the energy and decore at Bogota Latin Bistro, very fun & friendly. The drinks were great I would recommend the red sangrita (sangria + margarita). I went there for brunch with a couple of friends and everyone enjoyed their dishes, I've also been there quite a few times for dinner and always have a good time with great food, I try to get something different every time and have yet to be disappointed. And for dessert the dulce de leche molten cake is the best!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is consistently excellentFood is consistently excellent here, as well as the very friendly and attentive service. My only complaints are that it is always extremely noisy (as it is very popular with noisy self centered urban hipsters) and even though it is a Latin American restaurant, they could do a little more with their wine selection. That being said, the food is out of this world good, creative and generously portioned.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFlawless Experience at BogotaWent here for the first time as a result of Dine-In Brooklyn for lunch. Truthfully, one of the best restaurant experiences I've ever had, all around. I literally discussed with my girlfriend, trying to determine a negative, and couldn't find one. First off, the hostess and waitress were really cool and friendly. The decor was very authentic and fun without feeling like Taco Bell. And this is before the food came out. I ordered the app, plantains stuffed with chicken with a sweet potato (I believe) puree. Despite having severe reservations, it was great. Then had the Arroz Con Pollo, a pretty "vanilla" choice but certainly not vanilla at this place. Perfect size and great flavor, along with a presentation I hadn't seen before. Then3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic, festive atmosphere.Fantastic, festive atmosphere. Incredibly friendly and charming service. Excellent drinks and food! Highly recommend all around .. great for groups and celebrations.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEat your way through Latin AmericaI love that I don't have to travel far from my Brooklyn home to take a culinary trip through Latin America. It starts with the hospitality of the host. Even while waiting in the crowded front, you are apprised every few minutes of the status of your table.
After ordering, cocktails are delivered with pride and a smile. Dishes are brought with genuine happiness.
Time after time, everything is consistent and really good. Portions are more than satisfying which is good because you do want to eat it all.
It is so easy to tell the mission of Bogota Latin Bistro must be "Enjoy Food and Enjoy Life." I'd be surprised if it is not.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time attending due toFirst time attending due to restaurant week- will be back - good drinks- even the rice @ dinner was good3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEasily the best and most popularEasily the best and most popular Colombian restaurant in NYC, with much respect to the great joints in Jackson Heights. My wife is Colombian and I've spent nearly a year there, so I can attest to solid menu. If you have never had it, definitely get the Ajiaco soup. That is a Bogota specialty. We also loved the cerviche, even though that is really a Peruvian dish. The desserts were not great, so skip those.
My recommendations to the restaurant, however, are that they include arequipe in the dessert dishes, serve Old Parr whiskey, get some Postobon in there and expand the beer selection to include Club Colombia, Bogota Beer Co and Apostle (from Medellin). Great restaurant, though, and we will definitely return.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
