Before The Heat game on Tuesday night, 4-9-13, my husband and I ate at Bongo's. We knew we were in trouble when the waitress was unfamiliar with the menu, had to ask another wait staff member, then gave us an incorrect answer. The food was not the Cuban food I know from the many restaurants in our area. The mariquitas were stale/old, the bread on the chorizo was stale and the chimmichurri sauce tasted too oily. The waitress never came back to fill our glasses and on top of that a 20% tip was included. We would not have tipped her 20%. We did complain to the manager, who comped us 2 free alcoholic drinks. He also told us that this was the waitress's first day on the job. What happened to training before you start? We will not return as there are many more restaurants at Bayside where we get much more from our money.
