Great Club On a Saturday


The guys here are horrible no class, and way over priced and best part no salsa

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 7/15/2012

It was horrible! I watched abwhole binch of wirkers look in my direction but they just sat talking at six or aeven tables. We stood waiting for a long time and I went to the bar to ask about a table. He looked round and turned to call someone. I was placed at a table and the waitress was very nice. She did disappear a lot. Long time for food. So long that my sons chicken strips were warm but my daughters cheeseburger and my cuban had gelatinous cheese. The Cuban was like a brick! I love love loved the fried plantains but three bites and I was done with the sandwhich.\r My daughters burger tasted ok but was not even warm.\r Drinks are expensive!!\r \r I will never eat here again! I have had better food from the gas station sandwich makers. The cost there is $3.99! more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 1/22/2012

Decor: ver colorful and nice. Hostess needs to be more welcoming, smiling & accommodating. Servers: would be nice to have some English speaking as all guests are not Spanish speaking. more

DONT GO THERE 7/15/2011

Hoy, 07/15/2011, fue mi primera visita a Bongos y la ultima pues el lugar no merece la pena volver. La decoracion es bonita y la natilla exquisita, todo lo demas, PESIMO. No vale la pena. Fuimos 18 personas y todo estuvo MALO. Yo pedi el ""Bongos Combo"" que cuesta $ 17.00 y es para dos, lo que trae es: 2 papas rellenas muy, muy malitas. 1 tamal aguado y sin sabor 5 masitas de puerco , chiquiticas, quemaditas y resequitas. 2 croqueticas de jamon 2 cosas duras y huecas rellenas de unos camarones en miniatura cocinados tempranito en la ma more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 4/21/2011

I didn't even get to the food.... I could not get a waitress to serve me for one hour. I had to get up and walk to the bar for a drink. when I finally stopped her she had major attitude. I am still wondering what the...... Did not stay to try the food. I went elsewhere ... Tatu was better. more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 1/30/2011

well a vists to bongos at the hard rock its more like a cross between a medical complex and a spa too many flames going on and too many gimmicks this was about a s cuban as denny ... i noticed a lot of beaned out wannabe psuedo partiers glorias franchis is no more cuban than long john silvers the food is too complex and has lost its simplicity ...its not flavoutr or cuba its about white sterile clean and pose pose pose its all about a place to be seen they have concetrated too much on image and not enough of the bacvkbone of bongos which in orlando was great but this white decadent monstrosity is for the faux pas and the beaners more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 1/19/2011

Just ridiculous. \r \r Mojitos with no flavor beyond Simple Syrup. \r \r Cazadores tequila is the tequila in the signature Margarita, but there wasn't a bottle in the house. Come on folks, it is owned by Bacardi...not a tough thing to keep in stock. \r \r Food was a really poor showing of Cuban cuisine.\r \r The hot sauce in house is Tabasco...really? Not really a Cuban flavor.\r \r Music so loud you cannot hear the person next to you.\r \r Would never go back to this place. more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 12/12/2010

Had the office chrisymas party there. I promise there isnt enough space for all the crap that happened. Rude service, terrible selection, i kid you not all 14 orders had something sigmificamtly wrong, one order never came and they acted like we were the crazy ones. Over rated, overpriced, never go, dont say you werent warned. more

I was commenting on the new Bongos in Hollywood, FL at the Hard Rock! more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 12/11/2010

I think they upscaled it a bit too much; extremely pricey and the waiters don't know anything about the menu...definitly agree they are in lala land. What is up with all the "WHITE"??? Where are the Bongos at the Bar??? Where is all the Island Flavor??? ...again, too much white. $6.00 for a small order of tostones and if you want bread that is another $6.00...and what is up with the ice and Rum to eat with a spoon all about? I just didn't get it...won't be going back...too sad because I was real excited when I heard they were open, and now I am sad. Going to the one downtown cost too much to park, I'll just stick to going to the one in Orlando at Downtown Disney...don't have to pay to park and the prices are reasonable; that is always a treat when on vacation there...NOW that was the Bongos I expected here! more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 7/11/2010

The service was horrible. First it took the waiter like15 minutes to get our order, then no one checked on us if we wanted another drink, when our food finally got to us we ask for ketchup and more drinks to the guy dropping off the food, he totally ignored us so we had to find someone else when we finally some one came to check on us he brought us the bill and to top that they had already included the 17 percent tip on it more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 6/19/2010

Im guessing people go here because the Estafans owne these restaurants. The food is overpriced and its not that great. The staff are in lala land... the Estefans should teach them how to be better staff memebers more

The WORST Latin place in Miami 12/28/2009

Unfortunatelly, I brought two couples last Saturday Dec 26.\r This is the WORST Latin Club in Miami.\r They do not respect the # of people that can be at the Club, it was totally overcrowded.\r They advertised ""Salsa on Saturdays"", and \r 1.- They have R&B inside, not Salsa.\r 2.- Outside, they put Reege, Rap, Hip-Hop and no Salsa, (In 3 hours, they just put 2 merengues and 2 Salsa songs)"".\r 3.- They insult you charging 15% in advance and the Service is the WORST one I have not seen for years.\r You need to fight and beg for a drink.\r 4.- The FOOD is ""to vomit"", FAT oily food, smell like ""McDonalds, EXPENSIVE.\r The final thing that is amazing is the ""Elephants"" Security guards, just leaving this ugly place, one Security guard start to screeming to one guy, no a SUPERVISOR to stop this guy, almost fighting outside the Club for nothing.\r It is incredible, but these poepl does not know the main rules of respect. Pros: Nothing Cons: Bad Service, Expensive, Awful Food, Overcrowd more

Good food bad service. 2/19/2009

This place doesn't even give you free refils. It looks good and all but awful service. Not only that but I had to have a back up choice for my main meal! And dessert! Because they weren't serving it at the time. This place is pretty awful. more

Bongos Cuban Restaurant 6/9/2008

The service was horribly slow - 15 minutes to get water and menus. Then 30+ minutes for food that was over cooked and cold. Neither the hostess, waiter or the manager seemed to care about the service or the food. An 18% gratuity was added on but on the menu it clearly stated that if you were not happy with the service that you could reduce the gratuity. We reduced the gratuity to 10%. We wrote our complaint and the new amount clearly on the receipt. Guess what. They ignored the new charge and charged the full amount. BAD service, BAD food, BAD attitude, and price gouging and fraudulently changing receipts - go somewhere else. Do you think Gloria would stand for this? Cons: Fraudulently changing credit card receipts and BAD food and service more

Rude Management 1/16/2008

Forgeit about it. Awful service. Rude management. We were asked to pay for parking after we decided to leave because the food was 45 minutes late. Pros: Nice looking place Cons: This mafioso looking guy was rude and we decided to leave more

Good Food, Wierd Service 7/30/2007

Well me and my girlfriend were visiting last week for vacation. To tell you the truth, I have been to many resturants who have famous owners. All are the same. Good service, bad food. Well Bongos is the exception!! THis place actually had good food. The service on the other hand was wierd. The waitress took our order twice and as confused if she did or did not originally take our order. We were given bread up the but that we almost lost our appetite but the bread was good. Other than that it was good place to go. Location is awsome and was next door to American Airlines Areana and my favortie shopping strip Bayside. Pros: Location Cons: Wierd service, oh our light pinnaple was out of order. more
