Always make a reservation on Open Table first! We were three blocks away and decided we wanted to stop in for dinner. Everyone else had the same idea too, but we had the forethought to reserve a table - we were seated almost immediately upon arrival and were enjoying mojitos in no time - we overheard the hostess tell the couple that came in after us that there was a 45 minute wait! (The food IS worth waiting for, but so much more enjoyable when you can sit right down) The menu is pretty comprehensive - something for everyone (vegan, gluten free, or carnivores) and we enjoyed everything we ordered.

The atmosphere was upbeat and the staff were all very pleasant! The food was absolutely delicious- even the guacamole was exceptional. It took quite a while before we were served appetizers and drinks, however. I wish the music was a little softer - we had a group of nine for a book club meeting and it was difficult to have a large group discussion.

Food was amazing
It was really crowded which could have impacted the service. Everyone was really nice - just a few small misses in communication with the waiter. He was great.
Highly recommend.

I was in the mood for Spanish food and this really hit the spot. The grilled corn as an appetizer was yummy along with the coconut shrimp which were gigantic! Then the garlic chicken as my entree was delish! Had leftovers since the portions were big! This restaurant is budget friendly soo much food and drinks for two for 100 bucks!

It was very loud and very cramped. There is not enough room for the amount of seating jammed into the place. The food was very good, but the service was average. The value is not there based on the price when you consider the complete nature of the restaurant.

We used to love love Bogata. The food has gone down hill while the prices have gone up. $30 for a skirt steak? The empanadas we nothing special. They stopped giving free plantains because “have gone up”. Well the downtown quite Notable as you always would have to wait on a Friday night. There was no weight and empty tables!

Pls return to how it was. I probably have been there ave 50times since it opened

The music is too loud. They should turn the volume lower during regular meal hours but can turn it up during Happy Hour or late night dinner for people who come here mostly for drinks. It was very hard to have conversations with friends when the music was too loud.

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants before I developed food allergies. Wonderful staff and drinks. However, there are less than a handful of food options here for those with soy allergy (I also have dairy, egg, and gluten allergy). While other restaurants all over the city will provide patrons like me with custom orders apparently, Bogota only uses soybean oil so as my friends ate amazing food, I was offered spinach and mushrooms. Not what you want when you go to a Columbian restaurant. Very disappointing!!!

I made a reservation based on the reviews. I found the food very bland for Latin cuisine--even the beans didn't have flavor. Maybe I hit a bad night.

It's a lively place with lots of specialty drinks and full Colombian menu. I was part of a group of nine. One of my dinner companions ordered the Paisa with the skirt steak- which is typically Colombian. The meat was tough. I had the Sancocho. It was good and satisfying, but lukewarm. The plantain in it was rock hard. This is probably because the soup was heated in a microwave instead of the stovetop. As I stirred the soup, the bottom became hotter. I had the arepa de choclo. The arepa was hard and overdone.

Our server was friendly and personable. Two at our table were sharing their meal, but had to wait a while after asking for an extra plate and serving spoon so that the dish could be split. We asked a server for a plate and serving spoon. Instead of getting it himself, he directed our request to our server, who was obviously busy. No teamwork here. Sorry, but I've been to better Colombian restaurants.

Bogota is a great choice for a low key brunch in Park Slope and the restaurant seems to not merely tolerate but actually enjoy having children in the space. Great options for both breakfast and lunch and delicious drinks.
