This place is great! We sat in the swings at the bar and had a wonderful dinner. The bartender gave us great food recommendations, and our drinks were fantastic. We will definitely be back!

My boyfriend and I were looking for a place to go for dinner last minute for NYE. Boogaloo was very accommodating and was able to get us in! We ordered multiple tapas and jimbalaya and were not disappointed. Our server also was extremely helpful with navigating the cocktail menu and helped us choose some delicious drinks. We will definitely be back!

So many choices. We had a group of six and sat in the window. Fun table. We shared Tapas and drinks. All were yummy. The ribs won.

Food was excellent. We had a number of tapas, jambalaya, and sangria. Everything was delicious. The waitress was a little forgetful but the place is fun overall for a night out.

Date night with the husband. Maplewood was the convenient meeting place. I chose Boogaloo because of the first rate Cuban sandwich and hoped the spouse, a first timer here, would find an entree to order. He did -- jambalaya -- and everything was wonderful, Including the friendly waitperson and cocktails.

Very good food!! We had the rare tuna appetizer- cooked to perfection with a deliscious wasabi sauce followed by a tasty jambalaya - spiced just right and enough for two. Added a salad that was tasty. Highly recommend. This place should be much more crowded. Also, our server was conscientious and nice.

Food was pretty good. Very few people in there and the service was terrible. The bartender was completely inattentive. I'll go back, but I'll try the service at a table instead of the bar.

The food was great. It arrived at our table quickly, made to order, and was delivered with a smile and humor. Our cocktails were much stronger than anticipated, which is not a complaint. I recommend the cucumber martini, if you like cucumber. It was strong, refreshing, and surprisingly delicious.

Have been to Buglaoo several times prior and loved the place this trip was very disappointing the Cuban sandwich, had little meat on it and it was overly saturated with mustard! Was os looking forward to my meal, greatly disappointed!

Bar's seats are swings which is funky & cool. Sitting in the window of the dining area can be really loud b/c of all the surrounding hard surfaces. Food was pretty good and in a large quantity. A tad pricy but nothing outrageous. Street parking is a circus. Park across the street in the parking lot. Would recommend.

Great food. Highly recommend the Tapas menu and ordering lots of different items to enjoy. Will definitely have the BBQ shrimp again as it was simply AMAZING. We also enjoyed the Cuban cigars, the fried plantains, the ribs, and topped it all of with some bread pudding for dessert.
The host and wait staff were very personable and professional. The cross service meant we didn't wait for our food when it was done but our waitress was busy with another table.

I organized a surprise birthday party for my boyfriend here on a Saturday night and was very pleased with the management of Boogaloo. Kelly made sure that we had a table hidden from the view from the window, so that my boyfriend wouldn't see them until they could yell surprise. Our waitress was friendly and attentive, and the food was great. We will be back!

My friends and I had a wonderful time. We were a large party and Boogaloo accommodated us very well. The food was quick and very flavorful. I had the tuna and it was excellent. As was the cornbread. I did not hear anyone complain about their food and our server was very friendly.

Reservation didn't work well through Open Table. It showed a 6:45 seating available for 4 and it was 7:30 before we got a table. Something definitely wrong with the system somewhere. Not sure if it is the restaurant's problem or Open Table but it didn't work. Food was excellent. I won't trust the reservation again but the food is excellent.

Went here after it was recommended by a friend. I went with my roommate/best friend. I think my only complaint was the seating arrangement. It was awkward, and we were RIGHT next to a couple on a date. Like I was almost touching one of them. Plus it was SUPER dark. But other than that, it was fantastic. Food was great! Not too expensive, especially for the quality. Have already recommended to other friends.
