“Authentic Cuban food!”
Reviewed July 22, 2012 via mobile

Well it's a great restaurant. Extremely clean. Great Cuban food, like rice, beans, and pork. A DJ and at the heat games they give out prizes in trivia games! High energy restaurant and friendly waitstaff. Fast service!

“Average food, Great Service.”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

I found the food to be very average and pricey, our waiter was outstanding.
I was a bit turn off to pay $10.00 for parking.

“Great food - Poor service”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

The food at Bongo's was great. Loved the plantain cups and the shredded steak. This was our first time at a Cuban restaurant and we really enjoyed it.

Our waiter was not very good. He said it was his first day and I believe it. He put in our order for appetizers before he ever took our dinner order. It was a little odd. He was very slow. Then he had to correct our tab because he overcharged us even with including the 15% gratuity that Miami restaurants add in. Thankfully the event we were attending at the adjacent arena was running about 15 minutes late or we would have missed the first minutes of it. It took us over 90 minutes to eat and most of that time was spent waiting on the waiter.

“Good food, unique atmosphere”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

We went here one night at the Hard Rock location when we were jonesing for Spanish food. This definitely hit the spot. Everything we ate was incredible. It is pricey for Spanish Food ($29 for flank steak, beans & rice), but it was well worth it when you factor in the coolness of the place. I would definitely go here again.
