    We have eaten there a few times. We have gone late in the evening and it is very loud. They have a live band playing and dancing going on downstairs. The tables are upstairs and you can see the band and dancing from there. It really is a lot of fun. We really love it. The food was so good and so was the service. We really liked the atmosphere. We even took our kids and they had a ball. Now I do have to add that we are latin and are use to the loudness!LOL If you like that type of food then give it a try.

    Oh well, I guess I will be the negative review! DD18 and I ate there for lunch. While the food was ok (I am being gracious), this was some of the worst service we have EVER encountered anywhere. Since we thought the food was nothing special (and the service horrid), we will not be wasting our money there again. Normally, if one is ok we will give the place a second chance...........but not here.

    I have eaten there three and all three time I was very satisfied. Food portions were large, atmosphere was entertaining and the staff was very friendly. I recommend this place to anyone that enjoys cuban food.

    I have to give a negative on Bongo's. Very slow service, food was good but not anything special.

    OH MY GOODNESS! This was honestly one of my fav places. I had the Vaca Frita and that was honestly the best piece of meat I've ever had. Seriously, you HAVE to try it if you eat red meat. The weird potato like thing that comes with it didn't work for me but the rice was delish and the steak was more than enough.

    It's a cute place with awesome food. Definitely check it out!

    I'm a negative also.
    Loud, bad service, food so-so. Plantains....nasty (but hat is a personal opinion :rotfl: ), meat dry and over done.
    We have been hesitant to go back, but will probably give it another chance sometime....every place can have an off night.
    There are so many wonderful places to try, though, I am not in a hurry to go back.
