Good Vegetarian Options
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!

Missed happy hour by exactly one minute when being seated and they said I couldn’t order from that menu

Saw a worker eating a bowl of food walking to the back

The food here remains delicious, especially the sweet corn and the salted grapefruit margarita. Our service was just ok. I overheard the server at the next table explaining the specials, but our server never mentioned them.

Very good dishes and great service. Great for people who want to eat plant based, vegans or try something new - meatless! But the seating is not comfortable and the dishes are very small. You will probably be still hungry after eating only one main dish on the menu.

Great service, attentive and friendly. We loved the food, in particular the cauliflower tacos, jalapeno rellenos, and the Peruvian yuca. Everything tasted fresh, well seasoned and was delivered hot. The restaurant was crowded, but the noise level was not too loud to have a conversation. I would go back and I recommend it to vegans and non-vegans alike.

Everything on the menu is exceptional. Heads and toes above any nonvegan restaurant in the city. Their drink menu is like nothing else in the city.

Amazing!

Brunch menu left a lot to be desired. The chocolate banana pancakes were doused in syrup. There was nothing that made them even decent pancakes. Vegan tapas at $13 a plate doesn’t work. We won’t be back.

The place small & intimate. Decorations and ambiance makes you feel like transported to a Latin country. The food was delicious! I especially like the cauliflower tacos, tres leches cake and traditional margarita.

Food was good, the space is cute, but experience overall was mediocre at best
Had a reservation for 7pm - they said it would be a few minutes while a few tables finished up. What a lie - a few minutes was 30, they just have been running behind because another couple had been waiting for over an hour.
They apologized for the wait and comped some chips and guacamole.
Restaurant must have been scrambling to get back on schedule, because the rest of the dinner was rushed. All the food arrived more or less together, and we were in and out in less than 45 mins

As for the food - Philly cheesesteak empanadas were fantastic, as were the fried plantains. Hearts of palm ceviche got a split read, traditional tacos were good but a bit dry.

The food was delicious as always. The drinks were not a great value but tasted okay. Our server was lovely but the hostess and another employee both misgendered our group and did not listen to our polite correction. It also wasn’t a very accessible space, you had to climb over others to get to the seat and we smelled cleaning products coming from the back that was bothersome.

The restaurant is small so you def want a reservation. The decor was classy and the wait staff was prompt. We ordered two of the classic items and a salad to split and it was enough food for two without feeling too full. The Nachos with “beef” were just as good as any nachos I have ever had with animal products and the buffalo cauliflower tacos were dynamite! Next time I am in Philly I want to go back and try more of the menu.

The ambiance was nice, but the prices were way over-priced for Philly. Portions were tiny, and flavor was just okay. I've had much better vegan food at more reasonable prices.

The decor was awsome. It was surprisingly small dining room and one awardly placed table. I would only return for drinks. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. It was overpriced for the taste. I could have gotten better chips and guacamole at a chain restaurant

Just a simple and appreciated place. A short but always well executed bill'o'fair. This visit... a delicious lime vinaigrette-dressed salad with corn, black beans, avocado, and tortilla strips... Refreshing and so satisfying. And, a vegan blt... which all the right notes. A well-stocked bar, and an involved and accommodating staff. Whether you're Vegan interested or not, this Center City spot is a gem.

I love this place, BUT this time the table that i had reserved for my wife and my date night was given to a football player and his entourage. Very disappointed that the manager was inconsiderate enough to disregard our night, to sit someone else. I suppose they were considered more important then regular customers. This will definitely alter my plans on the future.

Vegan gem featuring a uniquely plant based, latin american inspired menu and full bar in a fantastic location. The interior is tight and loud but lively and fun. The service was friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable. Some great veggie based cocktails. Dessert was delicious.

It was fairly overpriced for the food. We both ordered tacos, which were fine but nothing special, and the fake beef stuffed jalapeños. Those came out deep fried in batter (not in the description) and utterly tasteless, to the point where neither of us could finish our portion. We told the waiter and he kindly took it off our bill, but overall our dining experience here was subpar. Maybe if we were actually vegan we would have appreciated it more.
