We had a very good time. My friend and I were celebrating our shared birthday. The food was great and the atmosphere was fun.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
