I have found my favorite spots are either the bar couch or table #40. A more sophisticated location to enjoy with friends and family. I do have a favorite waitress who seems to be in high demand. Bamba offers a finer dining experience and menu...without draining your wallet. Sit back, don't be rushed and enjoy the elements of this fine historic venue!

Pros: Valet,Greeting,tranquil environment

Cons: Not enough time in my schedule to go more often!

This place used to be a lot better. It lost a lot in the last round of renovations. Staff seemed bored, food paled in comparison to other places of the same price range. Won't be back.

Pros: none i can think of off the top of my head

Cons: lame food and staff, wierd vibe

.

I noticed 2 things here.....the food was barely passable and the staff unprofessional. I only recommend this place to men who want a bartender that passes you her home phone number. Definitely not a place for women to take their spouses. I expected much more from a "high end" restaurant. Don't waste your time or money.

I was on a business trip and passed by Rio Bamba several times before making that fateful decision to stop in on my last night in town (09/28/2006.) What a mistake that was. I do admit that we were seated very quickly but our waiter who seemed as if he were rambling off the preamble to the constitution when giving us the specials was a mess. Drink refills were not prompt. The pesky fly that was buzzing around our table made my stomach turn. And the flank steak I ordered on special could have used at least a grain or two of salt. I'm not sure if our unhappy whispers made it to the restaurant management, but when she appeared at our table and expected a response while I was chewing my bland dinner, I quickly sealed the deal on my overall opinion of Rio Bamba. In Summary: OVERPRICED, UNDER SEASONED, PRENTENTIOUS "FRENCH BISTRO".

Pros: Decor was appreciated.

Cons: Cones in parking entrance??, lack of seasoning, lack of drink refills

The last time I was in this place, it seemed like there was a ton of waitstaff just standing around most of the time. The food was very very good, but the service was painfully unattentive and impersonal, and I preferred the building prior to it's last renovation, it ws much more colorful & homey. Its too beautiful & interesting a space for it's new "bare" decor. Although happy with the food, I was not satisfied with the overall experience. The romance that used to be so loved in this place is gone, and the prices have skyrocketed.
