“Nothing to Rave about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

We had difficulty finding Bomboras, since it's nestled within a complex. We finally located it after spotting all the colorful umbrella covered tables out front. The service was friendly and prompt, but the food was just okay - not what I expected from the various reviews. We had fish and fries, which were average. It was about the same quality as a frozen fish dinner that I could have bought from a supermarket.

“Enjoyed the Eclectic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

The menu was very refreshing, a good choice of entres and appetizers arranged in an enjoyable way. They list "Social" items, items you would like to share. That is exactly what we like to do so was fun to choose new items. All was very tasty. Service was good except for the electronic notepad the wait staff uses. Continually locked up and took fovever to get the bill. Will definitely go back again.

“Fun & easy, awesome food & beer, not pretentious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

Our two teenagers were less than enthused at first, but we ordered the crab cake, mahi mahi, and blackened catfish small plates to share plus some BBQ sliders and collard greens, and our two girls quickly became as happy as we were that we'd chosen this neighborhood but upscale place for a late dinner. Everything tasted fresh and nearly perfectly seasoned and presented--my husband doesn't even like collard greens, but he finished every morsel. With the food so beautiful and delicious, everything else disappeared quickly too. It's easy to get to right on Coligny Circle, and the menu and decor are fun, refreshing, and chic but unpretentious and comfortable too--a great combination of a neighborhood bar with a football game playing as well as an open, airy, interesting stucco and stone interior. Our waiter was clearly interested in making our evening pleasant and easy, and did everything possible to be accommodating. We ordered a Belgian beer called Kwat, and it was almost like food it was so good. The ice cream and waffles were the perfect ending to a delightful dinner. All in all, a great spot, and very "chill"!
