Buffalo Cauliflower Taco*
Avocado, cilantro dressing, black beans, white onion
Housemade 'cheese' sauce, black beans, cumin crema, pickled jalapenos, guacamole
Philly Steak Empanadas
'Cheese', corn pico de gallo, spicy ketchup
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.
Great from start to finish
Delicious plant based, authentic Latinx food. Outdoor seating was lovely.
Great spot for vegan food! Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos were EXCELLENT.
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.
All the food is so good and the mango mojito is my favorite part!!!
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!
The Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos are so good! Outdoor dining is very comfortable.
Bar Bambon was the best, best vegan food option. Plaintains was on point, listen y’all have to try it because y’all won’t regret..
Loved the place, esa little bit overpriced, but nice ambiance. Great service!
Love this place. Amazing vegan food. Awesome service. Super cute new outdoor seating.
They do a great job. Call a few days ahead for reservations.
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
Bar Bombon is a favorite of mine, and their outdoor dining set up for COVID is so nice and cozy! The staff, food, and margs were great as always.
Came up from Baltimore for the day and scheduled a meal here. It was my second time here and it was AMAZING! The food, the service, the surroundings all made for a memorable lunch.
The food was extremely good and the staff very friendly and professional. We ate in the outdoor rooms and really enjoyed it.
An overall outstanding experience - food is excellent, service is great, and we dined outside in the recently installed private and heated pods. Highly recommend. Oh...and a great value too.
Limited menu ,portions are small and prices are high for what you get.
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.
Ann Marie provided excellent service and our food was delicious. I appreciate Ann Marie addressing my inquiry if peanuts are in any of the food items. She was understanding and empathetic. Mother and daughter outing for the first time in a very long time.
Love this place! Wish the yuca fries had more toppings on them...but was still delicious.
Love this place!
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.
When I walked in no one greeted me which was a bit odd but when we finally got seated the server was nice and the food was good. The Guacamole is a must have!
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.
Food is way too expensive compared to their tiny portion sizes...$14 for two small as empanadas? Nah
Reliably delicious plant based cuisine, fun atmosphere and good value.
Super yummy, definitely a vegan food favorite! Highly recommend the buffalo cauliflower tacos!
Great place! Fabulous plant based food done well. Nice cocktails & wines. Friendly staff. Heated outdoor seating. Will go again!
Great outdoor dining option—good safety protocols and cozy heat lamps. Solid vegan menu.
Food was delicious and service is great. Great vegan Mexican food.
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".
Food was good
Food was seasoned!!
Food came quickly (after flagging down a few servers to order)
The other server who replaced our heater thing
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
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!
I absolutely loved eating here. Aside from one staff member, the staff was incredible and super accommodating with my food allergy. I definitely plan on returning!
Food is always amazing!! Super cold out but the space heaters are great, ours was just almost ran out but understandable why they didn’t change it, it was almost closing. Always love going here, staff is awesome! I just went on a bad day weather wise!
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.
Great Valentine’s Day dinner. They provided heated seats and the heaters really kept us warm. The vegan cheese board is amazing!
