I am already a client of you!

It is an adequate place to dine with friends or have a quick date. It is not a romantic venue, but a casual relaxed atmosphere, in need of noise control! The food was wonderfully tasty and the greeters were very welcoming and friendly. Although, my server Stephanie was attentive, she seemed brusque and I did not feel an authenticity in her interaction with myself and my dining companion.

Food is usually good. This day it was not. Brunch is over priced. Food was cold. Attended with a party of 4 and 3 of us sent our food back because it was cold/not fresh. However, we did get complimentary drinks because of the issues with the food. Regular menu food is usually decent. I wouldn’t do brunch again.

Food took for ever ge be served, tostones over cooked, arepa was not etible because the cheese was poor tasting..the server:not familiarvwith the culinary details of colombian food (yes the one in the menu!), when we atempted to let him know, he just said 'they were busy', it took much more than 25 min to get aerved main courses), i wanted to let the manager know, he seemed like an intelligent nice guy when i told him we moved up our reservation unexpectedly, he graciously said it was a non issue.. but my family dud not have 'the stomach' to deal with this(i did) specially after this was becoming a black cloud over our granddaughter's graduation so we paid (in fairness after we paid the server made a calculated vervalization saying if we would have mentioned any issues before paying it could be solved but it would be "difficult now')... we had mentioned the long wait, the issue with the arepa, etc...and he had blown us off...bottom line, very disapointing experience.... !!

Service is unbeatable. My husband truly enjoyed the special of bistec caballo (or vice versa). I, on the other hand, had their skirt steak. It wasn’t cooked to the temperature I requested and I wasn’t asked if there was another side I’d like on top of the two I requested. So, my steak was not hot at all, it was tepid. The side added was not one I would have chosen and since it is one of my husband’s favorite, I offered it to him and when he bit into it, it was cold.
Their drinks NEVER DISAPPOINT. So they have that going for them...

Overly expensive especially considering they’ve gotten rid of the extras that made it worthwhile to take the family like complimentary plantain chips and wiki sticks for the kids. It also probably took around 40 minutes to get our food.

As a Culinary Arts member who is a certified chef that also studied front of the house service, I must say that I was more than pleasantly pleased. I look forward to frequenting your establishment.

Bogota Bistro has yet to please me. I came with family to give them a try. I’m familiar of this establishment since their inception The staff has never disappointed me. The waiter and manager were great. The food was room temperature and its taste did not meet average. We had an issue with the margaritas, which were made with sour mix. Surprisingly, since Mexico does not use this mix. This is a gringo addition. My Martini definitely hit the mark. Hurray!! The tostones were dry and flavorless. The true flavor of Colombian food has yet to be exhibited. There are so many restaurants in this neighborhood with better tasting food. This place is always filled with a young crowd and our new neighborhood implants, which are not fully exposed to better dining or Latino cuisine. I wish them well.

I’ve been coming to Bogota for many years but this time around the food was a miss. My mom didn’t love her fish it was “eh” and the tostones were super thin flat and hard. The empanadas were underwhelming and my garlic chicken was kinda cold. I felt like it was sitting out for a while. The drinks were “eh” as well nothing to boast about. Best thing was the server she was great. Cute girl with blue hair and so nice and accommodating.

We have been here several times before and had a great experience. This time the service was mediocre and we were disappointed to find an abridged menu for Mother's Day that didn't have some of the dishes we were hoping for. We will go back, but not for an occasion where the menu won't be as extensive.
