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!

    Excellent service. Fun to dine outside (even though next to the street). Food was really scrumptious - pleasing both to carnivores and vegans.

    I was planning my first solo date out and decided to try this restaurant after seeing other friends/influencers post about it on social media. The outside dining is adorable but I was seated inside - the ambience is still amazing. I tried the mango and peach margarita which were DELICIOUS. The next part was selecting food items. Prior to coming, I was not aware that this was a Puerto Rican vegan/plant based restaurant. Thinking back, my server did mention it at the end of her greeting. I did not realize it was vegan until after I ate half my meal. However, the food did not disappoint. Being bi-racial, I never could imagine vegan/plant-based food could taste so full of flavor. I ordered the Queso Dip, Philly Steak Empanadas and 'Chick'N' Fajita taco. I had a great time and will definitely come back again. It is a great story to tell to my friends and convince them to try it. Looking forward to trying other items on the menu.

    We got our apps and lunch before our drinks. We had to ask for them to check on our drinks once our lunch arrived. They were clearly understaffed yet they sat the whole restaurant and outside with only 1 waiter. We had reservations for weeks and hoped for a better experience.

    We love to come to Bar Bombon!! What a treat to have so many vegan choices. Just the two of us- we had the Queso & chips (more like cheese sauce than Queso), Yucca fries (amazing flavor & texture), shared the Caesar salad (good but too mustardy. Ask for extra dressing) and double chorizo burger (totally delish, caramelized onions, Gouda, etc. A-mazing). Love this place, but two bad things. One, under their control: bar was slow with drinks. Two, NOT under their control: young woman cackling so f-ing loud I want to call her mother.

    We went for happy hour. We were seated right away with our reservation. A waitstaff member came over and greeted us and informed us of how to access the menus. Our food came out quickly, our drinks took a little bit but they were busy. Overall a very good experience. Good food and drinks.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.
