Everyone was so nice and the food was tasty. I'm goong to make this one of my must to go spots every month.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceWent for Mother's Day Brunch, it was great. From the hostess to the waitress, everyone was energetic, engaging, and wonderful. The food was good, especially the empanadas and dipping sauces. Atmosphere was nice, friendly, very inviting. We had our two kids as well, 7yrs old and 5 months old, they enjoyed themselves and kids menu is great, big selection. Neighborhood was very nice, went on a walk afterward as we were full from the amazing food. I would recommend and will be going back whenever we are in the area.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent...definitely a keeper!I wanted somewhere with goBogota was the perfect location. 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.

Everyrhing was so delicious- def going back4/8/2013 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 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. Staff is friendly, food is great, but sometimes service is a little slow.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to eat!!!We have gone to this restaurant on several occasions.

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!

Service was great!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBogota is a warm, friendly,Bogota is a warm, friendly, fun restaurant. The food and drinks were excellent! 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 AMReally great restaurant withReally great restaurant with delicious food and outstanding service.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDrinks were slow but deliciousDrinks were slow but delicious and strong when they arrived.

Empanadas were the best I've ever had - and I make them myself. The Shrimp empanadas were the best.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty, Friendly, Energetic, Yummy!Had made reservation through O.T. but stuck in traffic on BQE! Called, friendly staff said OK, but I might have to wait longer when I arrived. 30 minutes late later my friend and I show up....and they seat us! Wonderful. Excellent service, room very noisy but it's that kind of place. Very kid-friendly. Empanadas - shared, delicious, crispy crust. Bean, picadillo and goat cheese fillings very tasty. Crispy fried whole red snapper - delish. All food freshly prepared, piping hot. KILLER drinks - one was enough for me. Service attentive. Front of house person VERY calm - amazing given it was a Friday night and very crowded. Will definitely come back to try other items on menu. Brunch listings look very good too. Prices quite reasonable.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMEVERYTHING IS AMAZING!!!!EVERYTHING IS AMAZING!!!! Be sure to have the coconut caipirinhas!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBogota is Very Bueno (GOOD)I really enjoyed my second time at the restuarant. I had Sunday evening reservations and the place was hoping.we had wheat shrimp empanadas which came out less than five minutes after ordering then as our appetizer. We had ropa vieja (shredded beef stew) with yucca frita (comes with a spicy dipping sauce), garlic spinach (out of this world if you're not scared of garlic or olive oil) and bistec encebollado (steak and onions) which was tender and moist with an standard white rice and tostones (fried green plantain). Our bill was reasonable for the yummy food, great atmosphere, and super sweet server with the big blue eyes! The restaurant was a young vibrant feel to it, there were young and old through out. It's a definite favorite.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA continued favoriteBogota continues to be a favorite with a warm and friendly atmosphere, really wonderful food, well priced and local for Brooklyn-ites.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experienceExcellent Food. Good ambience and superb service from Katelyn provided a lovely dining experience for my friend and me. From appetizers to entries to desserts, everything was shared and everything was as reported; excellent. And our server Katelyn couldn't have been more friendly, attentive and helpful. We will be back! If you're looking for a Latin food experience, you'll be coming back to try more too.3/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, great food,Great service, great food, one of the few Latin places with a good variety of vegetarian options. Black bean empanadas were amazing. Service was great too. If you're on a date, ask to sit in the back room/garden - nice there, much louder and full of parties in the front area...3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA Recommended RestaurantOur experience at this restaurant as always was wonderful. Everyone is friendly and quite helpful.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
