Great food & great drinks. We were a large party and 3 kids. A little slow on things like silverware but otherwise server was attentive and had lots of patience.

We loved our first visit to Bogota Latin Bistro. We were welcomed immediately by smiles and music. I was also immediately thrilled to see Rainbow flags hanging in the space alongside artwork and creativity. The food was fabulous, as we chose this place for it's dedication to Gluten Free fryers and menu. We have Celiac and found we could eat several things. My favorite was the Plantain stuffed with pulled chicken. We also loved our vegetarian Empenada. Frozen Mojito is a must have. Very good service and lovely setting. A great cultural rich place to have in Park Slope.

Love this place, have been coming for years now! Sometimes on the noisy side but to be expected with a spot that's always busy!

Staff was super friendly. We love that this has dedicated gluten free fryers and lots of gluten free options. Kid friendly but also seems like a fun Friday night spot for drinks.

One of my favorite neighborhood spots. I especially love their bottled toppings.....One criticism: Lunch time music was far too loud, especially for the sparse amount of people in the restaurant at that time...

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.

The music is way way to loud, very uncomfortable 😣
The food to much and not the Bogotano style.

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.
