My friends and I came to The Bogota Bistro on a whim during a visit to the Park Slope area. We were very pleased with the location and our server, Vanessa, was excellent. The portions were just enough and the atmosphere very quaint. Even with lots of patrons it was still nice enough to talk to my friends without yelling.... More

Had dinner and drinks there last night- had a great time. Started with a Mojito which was really good and had the empanadas-beef and chicken, scrumptious 😀 We had the paella,a chicken quesadilla and the chicken tortilla soup were excellent. The layout made for easy dining, space was nice and could be seated in different areas to avoid larger tables... More

Bogota is located just off of North Prospect Park in Brooklyn, accessible by either the BQ or NRW subway lines. The food is freshly made with a nice variety of classic Latin dishes interspersed with creative choices. The ambiance is that of a busy Bistro on a Saturday night with fellow customers partying at the bar and sitting down with... More

Been here before, atmosphere is festive, food is very good and the beers are great! I had the BBQ ribs which were fall off the bone good. Zingu beer was great, one of my nieces favorite restaurants to go to!

So glad this place was recommended by a seatmate during halftime at the Barclays Center. Very busy on a Saturday night but we only waited about 20 minutes for a table and that gave us time to enjoy the mojitos. Delish. Not normally a fan of plantains but liked this prep. Fish was superb, as was rice side and tiny... More

I love Latin food but in my opinion the flavors here are just average and the price for a full meal with one drink and dessert could become pricy for the quality you are getting. I ordered a mojito,guacamole, the red snapper fish and the cheesecake dessert. The mojito was delicious. The guacamole was pretty good (although my friend said... More

Amazing little place full of Colombian arts and design in such a way it is very cozy. Service is very good and efficient. The waitress was friendly and fast. The food is fanatic and tasty. The meat is cocked in such a way that it is so tender. I really recommend this rest to all to try.

I ate probably 7 different meals at this place and every one was great. One of my favorite dishes ever at any restaurant is their paella. Awesome. Drinks were just OK and I thought expensive but all of my meals were great. Service was always good, although at times slow but it did not matter, the food made up for... More
