The food is always great here. My only complaint is that it was loud where we were seated. This was probably my own fault for going on a Friday evening. But when making the reservation online, you're given the option to select the occasion for your dinner. I selected "date night", with the hopes that they would seat us in a quieter part of the restaurant. Instead they sat us next to a large party of people who were very loud, and drunk (one guy felt out his chair). I guess next time I'll select "business meeting" as the occasion to get a better seating area.

Did not like the fact that only four credit cards allowed per table and how the server allowed such a small charge of $15 for one of the cards when others could have used their card. Additionally, we had 8 p.m. reservations and had to wait an additional 10 minutes to get seated. Food was ok, I've had better. However, the flavors have improved since they first opened.

I came for my Birthday and I had a great experience. My server, Emma, was GREAT! She was very friendly, patient, and attentive. I like that the restaurant was accommodating for a big party, and even added seats when some of my friends came later in the evening for happy hour drinks (table for 6 turned into a table for 9). Happy hour until 11 pm is amazing! I did not care much for my dish, the coffee crusted steak. However, my appetizer, the platanos rellenos was very good. The steak empanada and ropa vieja were excellent! Overall, I am happy that I came there, and I would definitely return. My guests also enjoyed their experience there. Thank you!

This is hands down my 'go to' place in the hood. When friends come from out of town - it's Bogota... after playing hard with neighbors... go to Bogota! The staff is receptive and I always feel good after a meal. Delicious food and good staff...
What more do I want?!

Bogota is our happy place! The food is always good and can be interesting, the drinks are solid, and the servers are kind. They have a lot of gluten free options for my celiac husband. I'm not sure why, but whenever we go to Bogota with friends, we always have a great time.

One of the great things about the restaurant are all of the gluten free options. My friends and I were seated for nearly 30 minutes before anyone came over to take our order. Additionally, when the food did arrive the rice was hard. Rice is a staple of most Latin cuisine. That being said, having a plate of subpar rice was not my jam.

This place is great for a first date or 50th.

I've been a fan of Bogotas for a decade or so , but last two vista left me extremely disappointed. The mojitos are still great!....smaller and pricier. I usually ordered the Fritanga, but no longer on the menu. I figured I'd put it together best I could.....not! The chicherone de pollo was prepared differently, floured which is not typical for chicherones. I also orders the morcilla( blood sausage). Not the same!! I was just really bummed. This was one of my favorite places in Brooklyn. Also, the waitress was pleasant but that that good...We weren't rushed, no people waiting for table to turnover, a few years ago there would have been a line of people waiting to be seated and bar would have been full. I may try ONE more time and hope for the best. On a positive note, the mojitos are great, the meduros are great, and the owners are nice guys

The food is excellent, and although it is a bit pricey, the portions are large, so you will get good value for your money. We especially recommend the guacamole appetizer. The only downsides are that the restaurant is small and feels cramped and noisy, and being in Park Slope, it can be difficult to find parking.

I used to come here all the time-- it was great. It's been several years and I'll never go back because the quality hit the floor. TERRIBLE service staff: server had an attitude, didn't know the MENU at all (said she just started), clearly overwhelmed, and the host sat everyone poorly given the layout of seat vacancies. Good food, awful staffing. This is a busy place-- invest in servers and hosts that have quality experience (or ANY experience). It's sad. I regret taking my boyfriend there for his Birthday; we spent most of the time frustrated and trying to flag down our server for things like sauces, plates and napkins. I was so embarrassed with my choice.
