The bar is cool, would not mind having a few drinks (beer out of a bottle only). Only sorry I ate there. The stuffed chicken was horribly dryer than the dust bowl of the 1920's. The Cabernet had turned to vinegar (must have been at least 2 days old), I switched to the A Meritage, much better. My wife told me that the Ladies rest room had two stalls not working (clogged) 2 without toilet paper leaving only one stall - the handi capped one... I got one glass of water, no refill, at all - still thirsty at this moment. Keep in mind we are polite customers and take things in stride. The service was non attentive. After my first glass of two day old wine, I waited with an empty wine glass for about 10 to 12 minutes before my wife eyed the server to come over. My wifes beef tip risotto was good. The manager came over and asked how things were I told him about the dry chicken and he said what can we do for you to make it right. I politely said, it is not for me to decide how you can make it right - he offered free dessert, fair enough, nice gesture. The dessert we chose was a lava cake with icecream - they served it with 2 FORKS!!! Have you ever eaten Ice cream on a hot Lava Cake with a fork? It don't work. Save your money and go to Chik Fil A, you'd be better off. Nice atmosphere though, DJ is great.

We have been to Bogart's before for drinks. We like the drinks a lot. They are not cheap but really tasty. This was our first time for dinner and we really liked it. I had the meatloaf and my wife had the chicken. Both of us enjoyed it. We had a spinach dip appeitizer which was good as well. One interesting thing is that some of the food is ala carte while some (like the dishes we got) come with a side. The food with the side items were reasonably priced. It was a fun night out. Only thing was that the food took a little longer than I would have expected for a not-too-crowded evening. However, we enjoyed the place and hope to go back again soon.

I have been here several times, I love their D.J but the drinks are the worse! You will pay almost twice as much for a tiny glass with 80% ice and 20% alcohol- what a joke! Is the economy that bad that you can't served more alcohol??!! Never again!!!

Packed dining room, nice live jazz, middle of the road standard food. Painstakingly s l o w service if you want anything like an omelet- under equipped food service line with 2 unhappy looking, mumbling station chefs. Nothing special, but probably reliable food- considering how difficult it can be to find a decent Sunday Brunch (without paying $35/pp).

I really enjoyed the times that I have visited Bogart's. Their Sunday brunch is great and reasonably priced. I take friends who are visiting and everyone has had a positive experience. Many Sundays include live jazz featuring local musicians. Their mimosas are not that good, but Bloody Mary's are perfect.

We love, love, loved their she crab soup. Then we order our favorite soup and what is this? They have changed the recipe? I don't know why some places think they have to tweak things. They should have left well enough alone. The food is usually very good, the service varies a lot. We have been kept waiting for extraordinary amounts of time when we had reservations.

We took my parents here on their recent visit and it was a perfect place for a nice dinner. There is a wide variety of menu options, so that everyone in my sometimes-picky family was pleased.

I went to Bogart?s yesterday with some friends and co-workers. The food was absolutely amazing, and because I ordered off of their lunch specials it was only $6! It?s been a really long time since I?ve had a meal that good for such a great price.

I was in Raleigh last week on business and happened to have the opportunity to dine at Bogart's. The experience was incredible. The service from the time my party and I walked in the door to the time we left was impecable. We actually took a table on the patio so we could enjoy a couple of cigars and enjoyed the live music provided by Kyle and Eric. I had the Filet which was soft as butter and I highly recommend the Sweet Potatoes as a side, I have got to get that recipe. I look forward to dining here again when I am back in town!

Some friends of mine and I tried to go here on a Sat. night and we were denied because my friend's jeans were too long. They weren't too baggy or hung off of his butt, they were just too long. Doesn't make much sense. I understand that certain dress codes have to be enforced, like no tank tops, or clothes must be worn appropriately, but if jeans are just a little too long, then who the hell cares. I wish people would remember where we live. It's Raleigh, NC for God's sake. This isn't some thriving metropolis where some of the best bars and restaurants are found. I don't think I'll spend another dime in this place. It's not that fun, the staff is not that great, the patrons are usually frat boys and their pain in the butt girlfriends, and they usually have a crappy cover band that plays the same boring songs every time.

My friend has been talking about the Bogart?s Sunday brunch for years now, and I finally had the opportunity to go. They have live jazz music and stations for freshly cooked waffles, omelets, pancakes, and French toast! I tried a veggie omelet and Peanut butter and banana pancakes, which were amazing. I ended up being too full to try the chocolate fondue fountain but did manage to make room for a mimosa from their beverage station, and that was equally satisfying.

My husband and I have gone to this place a few times. We usually go there on special occasions. I have never had a problem with it. The food is excellent, service is awesome, ambiance is lovely. The pricing is a little steep, but it's well worth it.

I visited this bar often when I lived in NC. I often brought out-of-town guests there. It is a friendly environment with great service. It gets pretty packed around 11pm. They have GREAT live music and there is even a small space to dance. Drinks are reasonable priced. There is plenty of parking in the garage right near Bogarts which is also reasonably priced.

Went to the Brunch on October 28, 2007 right as they opened at 10:30 AM. The food selection was very good. The culinary balence of each item was very well done. Good Shrimp and Grits, great Mac and Cheese, and great dessert selection.

The only problem was that the ready to eat selections (The items served in the buffet trays) were all room temperature. This included the bacon, shrimp and grits, the dessert chocolate, the jambellia, etc. Call me crazy, but I kinda expect my warm food to be warm.

I would give the restaurants buffet a 4 star, but the lack of warm food was disturbing, thus 2 stars.

This place gets better everytime we go. My finance' took me here for our first date 4 years ago. I love all the Rocky Top Hospitailty restarauants. You guys are awesome. We went Satruday night and they turned the night around for us. The bartenders have seen us in there before and they always remember us. I had been denied service in another location in Raleigh Saturday night so we went to Bogart's where the bartenders knew I was over 21. The martini selection is awesome and the best in Raleigh. Keep up the good work! We will always be back!

My husband and I celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary with 40 of our closest family members and friends on this past Saturday, May 19, 2007. The wait staff was perfect, and always there ready to serve in a timely matter. The food was excellent, and you got right amount for the money. And the patio was just beautiful. I could not have asked for a more beautiful atmosphere. This night was everything that I ever wished and dreamed of and more. After such a beautiful dinner, my party followed up with late night dancing. We enjoyed everything from the beginning to the end. It was nice to have everything accessible to you at one location. And because of my personal catering director, Kevin DeHimer and his co-workers, my Anniversary dinner will be the talk of the town for years to come. I am still on cloud nine, four days later. You all made me feel like a newly wed again. If you are ever in the need for some late night romance , whether it is just you and your significant other or a huge party, Bogarts is the place to go. And use the patio. At night it is beautiful. Thank you Kevin, Rocky Top Hospitality, and Bogarts for everything. I will definitely use you again. I LOVE YOU GUYS. - The Murphys

We went to Bogart's on Saturday May 12th. We ordered the Carolina Crab Dip. The dip had allmost no flavor. All that you could taste was the herbed parmesan pita. I ordered the Pan "Seared" Atlantic Salmon. The salmon was over cooked and bland. My daughter had the ribeye steak which was very average and certainly not worth $25.99. My had the Shrimp and Grits which again was average a best, not near as good as a similar dish at the Glenwood Grill. We eat out on the average as twice a week. We have been to many fine dining restaurants. Bogart's is not one of them.

Monday night date night is the best at Bogarts. $30 for 2 meals, an appetizer and a bottle of wine. The food is good (Americana comfort food) and the atmosphere is cool. Great for the cheap post-weekend blues pick-you-up. Also, GREAT martini list.

Bogarts is a good place to see and be seen in. The food is great, the ambience and service are a plus, then later, it is the scene to be at. 510 Glenwood is the corner stone of Glenwood, featuring its two other sisters (or is it brothers?), The Red Room and Hi-5. Both serve food, all have entertainment. The demographic is 21-40 in age group. This corner is bustling with crowds. No reservations required, $5 cover charge after 10p on Friday and Saturday (Gets you into Red Room, Bogarts and Hi-5). Don't forget the appetizers! They are the bomb. Oh, Bogarts is great for Sunday Brunch 11a-2p. Got a party? Bring it on -- to the private party room. --The Social Light

I decided on Bogarts due to the good reviews that I read on this web site. Unfortunately I found the food lacking in creativity and pleasure to the palette. We had the shrimp and calamari appetizer, both lightly breaded. The shrimp were excellent but the calamari was stringy as we were service mostly tentacles.

The main course included the stuff flounder, the full rack of ribs and the rib-eye. The founder and ribs were excellent but the rib-eye was equivalent to a Golden Corral. The taste was not equal to a great steak house, such as Capital Grille or Palm even though it is priced the same.

I have been to Bogart's once for lunch. I had the crabcake sandwich which was decent. Another person had Mac&Cheese which was good. However, the people who ordered oysters and steak were not happy. The oysters were all bread- very greasy. The steak was fatty, not a good cut of meat at all.
I have been to the bar at night and that is awesome. The people are friendly, drinks are great and the bartenders are sweet. The crowd is professional and youngish- mid- twenties and 30's.

Last friday a couple of my girlfriends took me down to Bogart's to start our evening off, and we didn't leave. The martinis were fabuloous. Chris the bartender,took amazing care of us, and he had us laughing all night. We had this amazing fried goat cheese appetizer among others, and were supprised that to find out how long we stayed (it was after one in the morning). It did get a little crowded late night but being seated at the bar we hardly noticed. I can't wait to go back to Bogart's!

This place ROCKS! My boyfriend took me here for my 30th birthday bcs he knows how much I love the scarlet martinis. Dinner was AWESOME! Our server was friendly and knowledgable. I loved the 1/2 order options for the entrees bcs the portions were huge. The manager even brought a Twinkie with a sparkler out with free dessert! Loved the jazz during dinner and enjoyed the band later. It got really crowded - it's certainly a hot spot. Definitly recommned this place.

When it was a restaurant, this place was great... However, the focus has seemed to change towards a bar/nightlife type of scene... I have no idea why this place is always packed since it takes forever to get a drink... and watered down $12 aristocrat martini's are not exactly my thing... The wannabe/funk/dance bands are way too loud and simply suck... but hey... it's Glenwood south... Not my scene and not worth my time... don't bother to waste yours either.

When it was a restaurant, this place was great... However, the focus has seemed to change towards a bar/nightlife type of scene... I have no idea why this place is always packed since it takes forever to get a drink... and watered down $12 aristocrat martini's are not exactly my thing... The wannabe/funk/dance bands are way too loud and simply suck... but hey... it's Glenwood south... Not my scene and not worth my time... don't bother to waste yours either.

I found out about Bogart's after searching for something new & different here on CitySearch and decided to take a friend there for dinner tonight. What a pleasant surprise! We were seated very quickly with our choices being a place in the "lounge" area, the bar, outside, or some of their comfy booths. We opted for a booth not far from where the Jazz band was playing. They had Casablanca showing on several big screens... and you could watch the game at the bar, too! The music was great, the service was even better, and the food was amazing! Many different choices and lots of appetizers. (We had the crab dip!) I like that they offer small plates in addition to their normal-sized portions. Well definitely be going back!

I have been to Bogarts's many times and always bring in business associates and clients. I have yet to be disappointed with food or the service. Always an enjoyable experience.

I really wasn't impressed with the food. I went with a group of 5 women and none of us really liked what we ordered. I don't think the overall selection on the menu was great. I have been late night to the bar scene and that was a little better. I won't be a repeater for dinner. There are too many selections downtown that surpass them.

Sampled 5 different starters. A hungry group of 4 didn't finish any of them. They just didn't taste good. Hard to tell what the Chef was trying to do. Here is the strange thing. I drink vodka Martini's regularly all over the country. The two I had tasted watered down. Trying to stay positive I didn't want to say anything to our group. Two weeks later someone from our group asked me if my drink tasted watered down because their's did. I've got no proof but that is a strange coincidence.

I dont know how this place got its good rep.
The food was average but expensive.
Drinks where overpriced and everyone in the bar looked so old?

I have been here both for drinks in the evening and for lunch several times. The drinks are great, especially the extensive list of martinis. The lunches are generally good, but I would definitely suggest avoiding the red meat here. I ordered the mixed rotisserie salad, which is supposed to have both chicken and beef in it. Well, it had mostly beef, but that beef was fatty and chewy and just not tasty.

Pros: prices, service, privacy at tables

As soon as I walked in the door I knew we had made the right choice.We were greeted warmly at the door and shown to the bar. Our large group sat at the bar for some martini's and hilarious banter with the bar staff and moved to the dining room where we were served attentively. I couldn't ask for ANYTHING MORE!

I have visited Bogarts on several occasions and it is growing more obvious that the focus is no longer on being a resturant but being a late night club. On the weekend night I visited it went from being almost empty to wall to wall people in every direction. The dinning room turned into a dance floor and bands with equipment going in between people trying to eat dinner. The music was thumping so loud you can't hear yourself think. Bottom line, where I once valued a nice steak and a bottle of wine has sold out to be just another see and be seen spot on glenwood south.

I have heard this place was a great place to eat. From the beginning, I felt as if I was bothering the wait staff. They brought us the wrong food, didn't check on us, mis-applied items on our bill, then to top it off, spilled another tables drinks on us.

Not to mention the fact that it looked like a diner in there.

This is the most dissappointing restaurant in raleigh other than high Five. I had the worst Filet salad that I have ever had and the service was at best Marginal.
I felt as though I had stepped into a 2 star diner that was dressed up as a martini bar.
The martini's are great but stay away if you want good food. Walk two blocks and Eat at Sullivan's

I have been to Bogarts several times in my short stay in Raleigh, and all of the times service has been above average, but after my lunchtime experience last week,m I probably wont go back. Our server in the bar area was distracted, short and just plain rude. The food was great for the price, the restaurant was clean and welcoming but the service wasn't. So skip the lunch and hold-off til the after dinner entertainment begins.
