We have been frequenting Bongos for approximately 18 years. The food and atmosphere is amazing. The Bongos family has always made us feel welcome and go above and beyond in their service and friendship.

Cerviche and black bean hummus with plantain were really good appetizers. Percy gave us exceptional service and great recommendations. Made reservations no wait and had a wonderful evening!

Simply the best, as always. I love the atmosphere, service is always outstanding. I could live on the chimichurri and steak.

Starting on a good note, I would come back here for original (not the coconut crap one, yuk!) Mojito and for the music/entertainment. They were pretty good. The food sucked, service was marginally better. Ordered the sampler and the seafood platters. Its sad to see...More

We’ve been to Bongos several times and it’s good but I ordered a Cuban steak sandwich and they served it on a roll instead of Cuban bread. Not impressed. I’m also tired of everything being “a la cart”.
