Great food at a reasonable price even on Valentine’s Day I will definitely be back
I went there for brunch, the service was great and the food was delicious. Will definitely go back.
Immediately concerned about the cash only sign that suddenly appeared, concerned about the valet just sitting in a guest’s car waiting for the next guest to arrive, concerned about the fact I booked on open table but the hostess insisted I had no reservation nor could she bother to check her monitor. The food was good but slightly overpriced. It was late afternoon/early evening and they seemed to already be in club mode with the music blaring, so fun to try to ignore the curse words when your kid is in tow. Overall it was okay, not sure if I would return any time soon but it was okay.
Food is good especially ceviche. Service is awesome as well.
We had a very good time. My friend and I were celebrating our shared birthday. The food was great and the atmosphere was fun.
Birthday dinner staff was wonderful
I thought that the food was good, and so did the rest of my group, however I think the menu was kind of limited. I was hoping for a few specials but there were none. It was difficult to read our menus because of ceiling lighting that goes from light to dark in several seconds. Also, when we walked in the music was so loud I could barely scream loud enough to tell the man who greeted me who I was for my reservation.
I did a reservation, when I went to the place they said no, we don’t have tables but we have a private event if you pay $30 each you can seat.
Love this place, my one critique would be that the music is a little loud for dinner time- a little difficult trying to have a conversation.
Phenomenal food! It was my husband's birthday and we decided to try something new. We made a 7pm reservation at Bembe Latin Bistro made us feel welcomed from the start. We ordered a few micheladas, and they brought the most delicious cheesy bread to our table. Our main dishes were Mofongos de Chicharon, Cazuela de Mariscos and Paellas Tradicional ... and the food was delicious! Everything was really, really tasty! Afterwards, Carlos brought out a delicious Tres Leches Cake and we sang Happy Birthday to the hubby. Great music selection! Great ambiance! Our guests were really impressed. We hope to be back very soon!
Vibe and fun
Well done! Wasn’t crowded, the host was awesome and very helpful as we ordered.

We went to the Bistro on friday night for dinner & drinks for the first time. The restaurant was empty on a friday night which was unusual & rare but we still gave it chance. The DJ showed up at 9:45pm & his music was very old & boring. He was testing his equiptment while we were eating which i thought it was a bit annoying he should have came prepared. The service was great thou. Our server Carlos was awesome. The food and drinks were a bit pricey but overall good flavors. We usually spend about $200 a night with dinner and about 2 drinks each and this one restaurant cost us almost $300. If you are looking for an affordable & nice dinner experience this is not the place for you. Come here with NO budget.
The food at Bembe is so delicious 😋! The dishes are so authentic and the manager was very attentive. I will definitely come back here! Try the mofongo trio it’s soo goooooood!
Great food and service. We had dinner and enjoyed Karaoke night.
Took my wife here for dinner.
Staff was very friendly & attentive. Food was amazing! Churasco perfect. Samon dish, with seafood was a work of art & tasted great.you must try corncakes/ chorizo- OMG! Didn't have ingredients for smoked Manhattan, but we'll be back.
I went with my husband and 2 kids for an early dinner at 5PM. We had a wonderful time and plan to head back. The menu had cuisine from Colombia, Cuban, Puerto Rican. Just missing Peru!
Great new Latin Bistro. This was our secondd time and we love it. Great food and service. Will definitely be back.
The food and service were mediocre. My feedback for Bembe is to focus on one or two Latin cuisines and perfect the dishes. Representing multiple Latin cuisines (I.e. Mexican, Dominican, Spanish, Columbian, etc) within one menu is a bit challenging impacting the dishes being served. I was hopeful since I live nearby, not sure if I'll go back.
Creative food that was delicious. Service was very attentive.
The service was amazing!!
We were excited to try this new restaurant. The food and service was great. We had the Sancocho Which was excellent. We also had the Churrasco. The place is a must try. We will definitely be back.
