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

The Bogota Latin Bistro has a very large menu of South American food. Everything we tried was good. They offer plantains with many of the menu items. The sauces are particularly good - spicy but not too hot. The service was friendly and efficient. It is very popular & busy even on weeknights.

I went there after touring a few local breweries. I got the Colombian plate with skirt steak, chicharron, red cabbage, fried egg and some other stuff. It was amazing. I washed it down with red sangria that was really tasty. For dessert, I brought the Tres Leches cake back to my nearby hotel and I am glad I ate that... More

One of my favorite Brooklyn restaurants. Their empanadas are great. However, they no longer make the one with bacalao which was their best empanada. The last time I was there they offered a special scallop slider appetizer. Absolutely delicious!! The best scallop dish I've ever had. The Columbian BBQ ribs are a great choice if you like BBQ. Although I... More

LOVE this place. I have loved coming to this restaurant for years and I am THRILLED that they now deliver on seamless. The arepas here can not be beat. I have had the yellow corn arepas with a number of different toppings and they are just to die for. The flavors in the arepa are fantastic: nutty corn flavor with... More

Bogota is a fun place in Brooklyn and truly is a Latin bistro, not just Colombian as the name might imply ... interesting menu items from Colombia, Argentina, Brazil. The main danger here is ordering too much. A few arepas as appetizers plus a full dinner was too much so some of it came back home. Everything was well prepared... More

Brought coworkers here after a long work day. we enjoyed their happy hour deals - great libations. Nothing fancy, but great prices. The plantain chips are delicious! They serve them as soon as you sit down. Unfortunately, they charge if you ask for more. However, our server offered them for free? Not sure if she was just saying that, but... More

Bogota has it all.. Incredible drinks..scrumptious food ..wonderful atmosphere and an incredible staff. Brazilian sangria is our favorite. Chicken quesadillas are the best we've ever had. They have beans and plantains inside. Wow! Juan is the best server ever. We feel like family at Bogota!!
