About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Located at Seminole Paradise at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL., Bongos Cuban Café draws its inspiration from classic Cuban supper clubs. The multi-level restaurant, lounge and bar boasts a 7,000 square foot indoor restaurant, a 5,000 square foot rooftop lounge with a 360-degree unobstructive view of the entire property and 2 outdoor patios. Inside of the main 7,000 square foot restaurant, guests will experience a chic yet comfortable atmosphere, with white tables and seats which are layered with different textures; polished dark mahogany panels throughout the restaurant; the two-sided main bar (one side features a stage on top of it while the other side extends to the outside of the venue) and a 20 foot window that allows guests to see into a one-of-a-kind custom-made vertical flame rotisserie. Twin glass elevators ascend to the magnificant rooftop lounge adorned with private cabanas and plush lounge seating where guests can enjoy libations under the stars.

Service was slow. Took 25 to place a drink order. Appetizers were amazing. Dinner was raw. Lobster smelled like chlorine and was delivered black.
The steak on salad was raw and returned.

The food is amazing; well prepared...large portions....so be careful. Can be extremely pricey, so watch what you purchase. All in all, good place to eat, hang, and listen to Cuban music.

A very average evening. I had to Roasted Chicken, while my wife had the Churrasco Steak. My chicken was too salty and just "ok" overall. My wife complained the steak was just bland and lacked flavor. All-in-all, nothing was bad, but we weren't wowed about anything either. For the prices of the entrees, I feel we could have done better at any number of local restaurants. Also, our food order came out fairly fast, but the food was lukewarm. It was obviously pre-prepared and not made to order.

The décor and styling of the restaurant is where you got that wow we were hoping the food lived up to. The cocktails were also very good and balanced (just strong enough).

The Decor was fantastic. But what I noticed is that on the restaurant second level, the hostess grouped together people of color. There was at least 4 to 5 different tables with people of color and none down stairs. That is my observation . Also, the fried pork was not fresh at all. I spoke with the waiter and he said, " we can put the meat on the plate back in the oil longer." He missed the key word which is fresh . My daughter decided to keep it.
My observation is the restaurant is reasonable price wise. The the food I will give it a 3. It was okay. The music was fantastic. And the waiter was good.

I expected better service from this restaurant. We waited nearly 2h before our meals were brought out to our table (party of 10) and the waiter kept forgetting to bring things we asked for. We were later charged for those items that we never received and had to edit our bill like 3 times. The food was decent, the live performance was pretty good but overall the drinks had very little alcohol for the price we paid and for a Saturday night the restaurant seemed pretty empty.

Made reservations, was able to thru OpenTable app. That would've been our 1st visit. No one contacted us about any cancellations and there was no message left when calling the establishment. On vacation was excited and nothing.
