Bar Bombon is food for life. All of our dishes are made with plant-based ingredients. No animal products are used. And since homemade tortillas still make a better taco, we make them the old way, like abuela did.
¡Buen provecho!

                                                            Fantastic Saturday Brunch! We had a great experience... everything was delicious & the service was super friendly. The nachos and the buffalo cauliflower tacos were out of this world! The cocktails were also delicious. This was our first time there but not our last. We'll definitely be back!

                                                            Our drinks arrived after everything else had been served. I thought given the slow service they would take something off the bill, but they did not. The food was just ok, and for the experience I felt I paid way too much.

                                                            Overall very nice experience. But do not expect to be given much attention unless they hire more staff. All staff were constantly working their hardest running around the restaurant, but we were still seated 15 minutes after our reservation and food took a while to come out. I'm glad they're busy, but it did harm the overall experience. Delicious food and very good for the value. I wish the tables had more elbow room. Two critiques for the servers: they didn't ask us if we were done before taking our half-eaten plates, and they brought the check without asking if we wanted dessert. We had a 7:45pm reservation but they seemed to want to get us out as soon as they felt our meal was over.

                                                            This place was a nice casual place to eat. We obviously didn’t try everything on the menu, but the items we had tasted ok, but most of it was purchased retail items the restaurant cooked and served. The sausage was Lightlife. The eggs were Just Egg. The bacon was 365 Fackin Bacin, etc. The only house made item was the ‘cheese’ for the nachos which was pretty good. The waitress whose name, I think, is Gianna, was excellent! The prices were very fair, with the exception of few items, which were ok overall. I’ve wanted to try this spot out for awhile. Its was much lower end then I thought it would be, but I enjoyed the food, very casual ambiance, and service

                                                            The food was good, I got a salad with chick'n, didn't get much chick'n for the price. Service was pretty terrible, they were slow despite being half full, and the server mischarged us.

                                                            The service was sub par, drinks took forever, food came out randomly. They did not advertise that they had a “pandemic surcharge” that is unknowingly added to the bill.

                                                            This is the fifth time where I have been here since the middle of the pandemic (I have patronized so many times prior and during the beginning, so I honestly don’t know what’s going on now)….where the staff literally doesn’t care, or has a vendetta against me (I’m kidding about the second one). The service has been lackluster, in the beverage and food front. Any time you ask the server what’s going on, it’s just honestly excuses. Today I waited 30 mins for a drink, another 15 for me to wait for food before I asked for it to go….then 15 mins after that. Horrible:

                                                            Another great experience. I love this spot for client meetings with non vegans and it always introduces folks to an amazing plant based option. Autumn was our server, who was very attentive considering it was a really busy night. I had the Cinco De Mayo Fish Taco special, it was delicious and flavorful. I would get it again with the dressing on the side. My client had the Double Chorizo Burger which they loved. The Punch of the day was Watermelon Mint and it was really weak. Overall another great night at one of my favorite restaurants in Philly.

                                                            The food was absolutely amazing and inspired! We loved all the food and the drinks were amazing. Service however was bad. We came in and saw that it was mostly empty which was super exciting cause we were starving. We immediately got turned away because it was "reservation only". We went outside, made a reservation and were sat right after. So if that's a policy that's fine, but that just seems ridiculous. Our server was very sweet, but just not good. He gave recommendations and features after we had already ordered, and brought food one plate out at a time, which made us order less, especially since none of the plates were really cleared away til right before dessert. We loved the food, it was amazing and a great healthy take on Latin Caribbean food, but service really missed the mark. So I might order takeout but definitely not dine-in again.

                                                            Food and drinks are very good. Food portions are SMALL. Service was frantic because they appear to be understaffed and overbooked. When I called to tell them we'd be 5-10 minutes late for our 6pm reservation, they said we would need to be out of there by 7:30pm. I appreciate the honesty, and that worked for our schedule, but we weren't actually seated until past 6:30pm. We almost went somewhere else because we were on a schedule. If they have time limits on reservations, they need to make that clear when they seat you so that no one is surprised or left waiting. I prefer this place for happy hour on a weekday, when the food is cheaper and the service isn't as frantic.

                                                            Our server forgot about us a couple of times…. At least we got our drinks for free. Food was good!

                                                            My husband and I had a 8pm concert to attend at the Miller Theatre. We eat a pescatarian diet and wanted to grab something to eat before the show. We choose Bar Bombon and are most grateful we did. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent. We'll be visiting again very soon.

                                                            It was too loud to hear anything inside, but they still have a limited seating on the street.

                                                            Amazing service. All plant based latino cuisine. Refreshing change from “salad-y” plant based restaurants. Great strong drinks. The tostones are amazing and the Isla Bonita drink really packs a punch.

The other being Charlie was a sinner. Both restaurants are fantastic restaurants and I’ve never been disappointed

                                                            I absolutely love Bar Bombon! My husband and I visit pretty regularly for special occasions and "just because." Currently, my husband is avoiding gluten for health reasons, and the server was very attentive in making sure we made appropriate selections from their many delicious offerings! Shout out to our server, Shannon, for her attentive service and amazing personality! Another great experience at Bar Bombon!--literally, anyone who asks me "where should I eat in Philly?" I tell them, "If you skip Bar Bombon, you're missing out!" Thanks!!

                                                            First time I’ve dined and Tostones were unavailable! I was disappointed because they are always so delicious!

                                                            The place was cold!! Hard to enjoy your meal when you are wearing a coat. Food was great as well as service but I will bundle up for next visit.

                                                            I had a great date at Bombon. Silly me - I hadn’t known this place was entirely plant-based before I got there. But I’m glad we stayed, the food was tasty and I wouldn’t have known the difference if our waiter hadn’t told us! The drinks were good as well. My only gripe is that the portions were quite small. Overall, I really enjoyed my time there.

                                                            Bar Bombon was a very nice find in central Philadelphia in the heart of the shopping area. The restaurant is small actually very tight but worth the adventure. Food was fast and delicious. We recommend it for Lunch, looks like the bar area gets good action too... Enjoy, we did!
