Bar Bombon is food for life. All of our dishes are made with plant-based ingredients. No animal products are used. And since homemade tortillas still make a better taco, we make them the old way, like abuela did.
¡Buen provecho!

We had an amazing lunch here. The lunch combo is a great value with a very generous portion of guacamole, and the chick'n club was probably the best vegan chicken sandwich I've ever had! Also had the traditional tacos which were incredibly meaty and so delicious! Vegans as well as omnivores will love this place.

Majority of the time it’s pretty great. Buffalo cauliflower tacos are good and management is awesome.

Being visitors to Philly, we discovered Bar Bambon through a Google search for vegan restaurants, and what a fortuitous surprise! Such a welcoming special place with delicious food, kind and solicitous staff and thoughtful touches! We sat inside and it was dark, candlelit and cozy. Covid protocols were on point and we felt secure.We had a pitcher of the tangy grapefruit margaritas to start us off with some good guacamole and tasty Philly cheese steak empanadas with a zesty ketchup accompaniment. The cauliflower tacos were as delicious as all the other reviews promised. The plantains were perfectly caramelized, hot and delectable. Only womp womp was the Latin chopped salad which was a bit blandly dressed. Do not miss the tres leches cake, a real triumph! Our waitress Dani was efficient and had a lot of personality. I wish this place was in my town, I'd be a regular!

Food was very underwhelming. Little to no seasoning/flavor and the portion sizes are tiny, yet everything is overpriced. My boyfriend (23 y/o) was given a hard time when he wanted to order a drink even though he presented his ID. I have been a vegan for 5+ years and know a lot about eating vegan in Philadelphia, and this is the worst vegan food that I've had in Philly. Not worth going here.

I was recommended the Buffalo Cauliflower tacos and they were the best plant based tacos I have ever eaten. The black beans inside the taco is a perfect touch. I also had the Spanish rice which was also phenomenal. I will definitely be back to try more items on the menu!

First time I was disappointed here
Sent back main dish, gluten allergy issue and drinks were very off three times
Had to ask for drinks, and hard to get service
The table next to us seemed to have a great server though so I think that was part of it
After paying for
Tolls and parking , it wasn’t worth the crowds to get to

This was my first time at Bar Bombon, but it won't be my last. We got the buffalo cauliflower tacos, rice, beans, platanos, traditional tacos and empanadas and guacamole. Our bill was $73. I found the prices to be expensive for the portion sizes. It was $13 for only 2 tacos. The empanadas were $10 for 2 tiny ones......like less than half the size of a regular empanada. These were mini empanadas and should have advertised as such on the menu. It also does not tell you that you only get 2 of them. If these were full sized empanadas, that would be ok, but I honestly felt ripped off when I saw them. That being said, the food was good, especially the empanadas. I would go back again if I wanted to treat myself.
In terms of ambiance........it was a bit too dark. I had to use the light on my phone to see the menu and this was in the middle of the afternoon. It was also cold, but that may be because they were keeping the front door open, (maybe due to Covid??)

Server took 10 minutes to get to our table. I’ve been here many times and this has never happened so i think it was just an off night for her. Food and mocktails were delicious as always.

First time there. Loved the food, and the warm drink offer which included a branded blanket. We were outside, and were expecting tents. They did tell us earlier that day, when confirming reservation, that the tents had to be removed for an event the next day. The standing heaters were not that effective throughout the meal, and the cold was extremely distracting.
I look forward to enjoying the menu and trying other items indoors next time.

We got unlucky with the waitress, we barely saw her and had to ask for help for help from other waiters who were very friendly. The drinks were good, but the food was ok. The original taco is super dry.

Overall, I enjoyed myself. The food was good, if overpriced for the amount of some of the items, but it's Rittenhouse Square so that is to be expected. I truly loved that this place is plant-based and the food was SEASONED! I am not vegan, but am allergic to dairy so it was a relief to be able to go out and not worry about being accidentally "poisoned".

Pros
Food was good
Plant-based
Food was seasoned!!
Food came quickly (after flagging down a few servers to order)
The other server who replaced our heater thing

Cons
Freezing! (I'm assuming he person who sat me didn't notice the heat thing was low/out so we didn't have good heat until near the end of the meal)

My server was not very attentive; perhaps they were really busy inside *shrug*, but they came quickly for the check/money, just not for anything else.

Overpriced; but normal for the area

Suggestions:
is it possible to have closed sections for outdoor seating? I've seen this at other restaurants, but not sure how attainable it is

Bar Bombon was everything for a Valentine’s Day meal! The only downfall was the outside seating, but we took our food to go and enjoyed the rest at home. So sad we don’t live in Philly, because this would definitely be a main staple! EVERYTHING was spectacular! The black bean soup was so rich and flavorful, the creamed corn was light and filling. The meatballs were delicious and perfect consistency. The drinks were so well crafted! The desserts made my mouth water. That charcuterie board was like nothing we could’ve expected! Hands down one of the best vegan restaurants have EVER been to!

First timer here and it was for Valentine’s Day! There was a prefixed menu - but 100% worth it. Between my date and I we were able to taste 80% of the menu and everything was truly so amazing. The staff was great, the music was great, cocktails were AMAZING, we were having a fun time.
We were fortunate enough to get a res for inside so we didn’t experience the outside but it seemed like the staff was trying their best to accommodate the outside space with heated seat pads and space heaters. Inside was small but we had plenty of space due to covid restrictions, no complaints at all.
