Good Vegetarian Options
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!

Food is way too expensive compared to their tiny portion sizes...$14 for two small as empanadas? Nah

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.

Always a great meal at Bar Bombon. No drinks this time-school night! We shared (shh don't tell) the nachos & they did not disappoint. I had the fajita tacos & they were delish, only slightly spicy which is perfect for me. For dessert (we shared again) fried apple & cream cheese things that looked like ravioli (didn't catch the name) but OMG, next time I'm ordering those first. I don't remember seeing them on the menu, probably because if I have dessert, I usually go for their fabulous coconut cake. You can't go wrong with anything on their menu. Our server was also awesome, didn't catch her name but she may also be the bartender? We were seated inside & we were well spaced for Covid.
Totally recommend!

My husband and I usually go to Bar Bombom for desserts and drinks after eating dinner at another restaurant (we’re not vegan), since they make great drinks and bomb desserts, which never disappoint.

The food here was amazing. Highly recommend the Buffalo tacos, empanadas, street corn & any soup they have available. I completely forgot the food was vegan that is how good it is. The Mexican hot chocolate was amazing as well & great presentation plus it comes with a cozy blanket. Service was wonderful as well. The only thing is under the tent was a little chilly even though there is a heater. It’s a little high up when you’re sitting. Would bundle up but the blanket with the hot cocktail was super helpful to be comfortable. Overall great experience

My husband I came specifically for the Warm Up menu, and we were not disappointed! Our food was great (I had the buffalo cauliflower tacos and plantains, and my husband had the empanadas and I think another taco on the menu). Our drinks were great and we loved the blankets that came with! Our server was really nice too! We'll definitely be back!

Typically I always have an amazing experience here; but this last time was not the greatest. With covid I’ve been very patient and understanding of limited staffing and service not being the same as it used to be, but at the beginning of our meal we let our server know our heat lamp was out of propane and she never came back to fill it so we sat in 39 degree weather the entire meal with being checked in on very rarely. Also it was very dark in the tent. I love your food and drinks so I will be returning in hopes next time will be better!

The food was delicious and good size portions for small plates. The servers were incredibly attentive and friendly. We dined outside for lunch and it was definitely warm enough with the heaters and tent on one side blocking the wind. Tables spaced out enough as well.

It was nice to experience great service and awesome food in such uncertain times. They are following the CDC guidelines. I hope that this place is able to stay open. I only have one problem: I should have tried this place sooner. Going back very soon!
