It was my first time at this restaurant. I have been wanting to go for sometime as I've heard it mentioned by others. To my disappointment there was nothing to rave about. The food was tasteless and the servers attentiveness and attitude left a lot to be desired. The drinks were good and the host was personable. I unfortunately do not see myself returning.

The service was outstanding with the exception of the host. He was on the phone and after an extended wait, someone else came and seated us. Since he was legitimately busy on the phone, the host should have signaled someone to help us instead of letting us stand there. Until a second group of people came into the restaurant, someone else stepped forward to seat us. In the middle of us trying to be seated, the host finally finished the phone call. I told him I had a reservation. He asked my name, but somehow OpenTable said I didn’t keep my reservation. It is cleared up now, but clearly the host was having some issues.

Great Food and price. Sangrita is the bOMB! I came here once for a weekend brunch and this time was a dinner. Both times were a great experience once in a big group and the other time on a date with my husband.

Everything was great until it was time to pay... The Mgr on duty commented Open Table reward cards aren’t accepted. Meanwhile the comment card lists OpenTable & my birthday reservation was reserved with OpenTable in which the $50 reward came up during the reservation process.
What’s the point of a restaurant working with OpenTable meanwhile not honoring their rewards program. Definitely surprised with Bogota Latin Bistro! I’ve been coming here for years with my husband!

Not even sure where to begin. The food and service were spectacular. We were there to have dinner before a concert at the Barclays Center and now we are looking for excuses to be back in Brooklyn just so we can go back and try more things on the menu! Plantain chips to start were a nice change of pace from the typical tortillas. Fish tacos were the best we've ever had. Frozen strawberry margarita was delicious. We never feel like we have the time to write reviews but we just couldn't pass on the chance to recommend this restaurant!

The food was excellent, and the portions were larger than expected. I could order the chipotle corn-crusted salmon over and over again! The vegetable empanada appetizer was a wonderful surprise -- moist and delicious; and the dipping sauces complimented each of the dishes. The desserts (fried cheesecake with vanilla gelato and tres leches) were delicious and generous. And last, but not least, the drinks were spot on (pina coladas and sangria). My one disappointment was the café con leche, which was too strong to enjoy. Thank you for an excellent evening!

I went with a friend to celebrate her birthday, and we had a great time. The service was really good -- our server even volunteered to lower the loud music when he saw that we weren't really happy with the noise level. Drinks were different and tasty, our entrees and dessert were delicious. I always enjoy Bogota when I come and look forward to going back again.

I had a lunch meeting at 11:30am and with only one other table occupied, the restaurant’s music was much too loud. Staff should take this into consideration. Also, service was just average and I had to make efforts to get wait staffs’ attention.

On Sunday, September 16, my wife, her brother and I had lunch there. It had very loud music. The noise was horrible. We could not talk at all. We could not have a conversation. The food was too dry. We had Arrozo Con Pollo (Chicken & Rice), a house specialty.

All meals were very tasty, but a bit too spicy for my taste. Ceviches were the best, tapas and calamaris also very good. Sangrita was interesting but too sweet for me. In other words - would it be less spicy, it would be perfect for me.

Absolutely delicious food! We have 3 folks in the family who have celiac and have to eat gluten free. We didn't have to make any compromises at all. Th e regional specialties being served were delicious, gluten free and they have dedicated gluten free fryers - a fabulous find for those with serious gluten sensitivity!
