    Delicious food, attentive service. We made a meal of the assorted appetizers. The BBQ Shrimp is exceptional, served with a browned Creole sauce and cornbread to enjoy all of it. The St. Louis style ribs were very tender and tasty. Jerk Chicken Wings are also recommended. The cocktail menu is extensive, I loved the Sazerac. Plus, the bar with swinging seats is great fun!

    It was for my uncle’s 60th birthday so we had a big party. The restaurant was so accommodating. My food was delicious and The server was very sweet. She couldn’t be as attentive as I’m sure she normally is because we had such a big party. It was a great experience. The only con is that the restaurant was a little warm.

    Don't go here to celebrate a special occasion. They didn't acknowledge it was my birthday. Service was poor and servers had attitudes. They also sat us behind the noisy bar by kitchen and we couldn't hear each other. Booth was taped up and looked like a run down place which was different then explained online. My food was decent and the jerk was very bland. Overall will not be back and would not recommend...

    Crab empanadas were fantastic, curry hummus was bland, almond crusted manchego tasted like goat cheese, liked bbq shrimp, good tasting gumbo, nice cornbread, good green salad, a little strong on balsamic …. Would go again to try other dishes. Went daytime, would like to experience evening crowd.

    I went here on a mom / son trip. I only make reservations at high rated restaurants. I can certainly see why this one is rated so well. I absolutely loved it. The paela and the plantain tapas…I could go on and on about the flavors and deliciousness of the food. The service was amazing too considering how packed it was. If I didn’t have the need to try a new restaurant every time I go out—I would definitely come here again. Love. Love. Love.

    Such a cool place to "hang" out at -- yes, I'm referring to the rope swing bar "stools." Had a party of 7, with each person pretty much ordering their own cocktail; everyone was extremely pleased with their beverage choice. The food was quite good; standouts included the plantain appetizer, BBQ shrimp and jambalaya. Server was super attentive, considering they seemed to be running on a light staff (for a Saturday night, at least). I had been to Boogaloo before, but mainly for drinks. I'm looking forward to hanging out there again and grabbing dinner.

    The spinach artichoke empanadas were the best thing we had aside from drinks. When we saw Cajun/Creole/Caribe as the description, we expected bold flavors and uniquely spiced food including some heat. Jerk rubbed wings were crispy, but without much flavor other than chicken. The watery coconut sauce that came with them lacked any coconut flavor. Cajun rubbed beef tenderloin had a nice sauce, but there wasn't enough of it

    Great food. Service was a tad slow. We were sat at a high top table. I had asked for a standard in the reservation. We didn't know about the specials until we overheard the bartender telling a patron who has sat down at the bar. We had already ordered and been served. We'd give it another go. Nothing horrible and the food is very good!!

    First time back at Boogaloo since way before the pandemic. It hasn’t lost its vibe, and the drinks were good. The crab empanadas were spot on, and the creole jambalaya was great. My big issue was with the Cuban paella. One of the mussels shells was still closed, there was noticeable grit in one or two of the others, and there were a couple of mussels that tasted off/kind of bitter (I didn’t finish those). For a dish that costed over $20, I’d expect way more attention to details.

    My husband and I ate outside on the back patio, very casual. W shared the empanadas: artichoke and spinach and the crab varieties, as well as the red beans and rice. The crab empanadas were our favorite., just our choice the artichoke and spinach were good too. The red beans and rice were flavorful with red peppers, tomatoes and onions.

    The food was delicious! Plated and pretty! Prices were reasonable, a little surprised too. Foodies would love the tapas! Our group shared so we could taste a little of everything. The salmon entree was my favorite! We had several dessert drinks and one dessert cake, cannot remember the names but seriously, everything was outstanding. Our waitress was fantastic! Will definitely go back again ❤️

    Great service and fun environment for a group gathering. We had some delicious cocktails including a Hibiscus Gin Smash that was 'smashing!' Appetizers were plentiful and tasty. Vegetables in the jambalaya were crunchy and there wasn't much spice but paella was flavorful. Bread pudding was more like a pound cake than bread pudding - it needed a lot more moisture. We had a lot of fun and a satisfying dinner

    Made a reservation for the swings but they were all taken when we arrived. We were 5 minutes early when we arrived and several had just been seated at the swings with no reservation, menus and no drinks in front of them. No apology or explanation. The entrance door is unremarkable and actually hard to see when you arrive. The best part of the meal was the server. She was great. The food was subpar, presentation was great but there was no flavoring. Due to the tight space at the table next to the swing, I was constantly readjusting to make room for the staff since there was a gentleman standing by his friend at the swings blocking the pathway. The staff never once politely asked him to move, just kept bumping into me. I had the flank steak on rice, no seasoning at all. It tasted like tender meat on a bed of rice but I never tasted any flavoring. Crazy that a Cuban dish could only be made edible by adding salt and pepper. Overall I was under impressed by the food and atmosphere.

    Made reservations thru Open Table for 3. Arrived on time and was promptly taken to seat. Note: They have hi tops, booths and standard tables. We preferred a table but they were unable to meet that request and I don’t think Open Table offered that option. This was our 1st time so we sat at a hi top and our waitress Nola gave us the details on drink & food menus. So many great options. Drinks although a bit pricey $8ea were very good - the Boogaloo Bloody Mary was strong & spicy: just the way I like it. BBQ Shrimp appetizer, jerk chicken and cubana sandwiches, fries and plantains were all very good. Topped it all off with a delicious piece of Tres leche cake. I wonder if the cake was actually corn bread because the texture was different. So good! Wait....it gets better. They allowed me to use the coupon on my Entertainment app. Atmosphere was fun & spunky. The building must be old and that shows on the floors and wall that led to their basement that we could see from our table. The restaurant seating area & bathrooms were clean. Looking forward to our next - I’ll snag a table on the other side of the restaurant and check out that decor. Hope you enjoy your visit as much as we did.
