I don't know why the Stefans closed this place down, it was good food and at 11:00 pm they will clear the dance floor and you could dance inside or outside on the terrace. Now there is another place open there called 601.

This place has a $20 cover which was really steep! The acts were entertaining. Drinks were terrible. The place is actually small, reminded me of CABO clubs. I was not impressed

Food was decent. Nothing extra special. It came with a price tag. Unsure if I would visit again due to cost vs. food quality. We had a great time and service was attentive.

Very bland flavorless food. Was very disappointed. The atmosphere and decoration made you think you were going to eat a great meal, only to disappoint

Came here before a Heat game. It was good food and fast service. I enjoyed the meal along with a terrific margarita. Keep up the great work!

All Bongos locations advertise themselves as "kid/family friendly" so the restaurant is open to all ages and the local laws regarding drinking ages will determine if you can be served. I've never been to there after 10pm so... More
