My wife and son went with two friends to La Bodega on their Saturday afternoon 2p - 6p Happy Hour. Many of their outstanding tapas items were 1/2 priced and they had cold Modelo Especial cerveza (beer) for $3 each. My wife and her friend both drank Sangrias and agreed it was some of the best they have had. We... More

Found this restaurant through my AAA TourBook and it seemed to be the perfect place for a refreshing drink and light meal (i.e., tapas small plates) on a hot sultry evening in Kansas City. I had spent the day touring Truman's home and museum in Independence, and wanted someplace casual where I could relax enjoy a good meal. I was... More

We went for our first time during lunch, we ordered the garlic shrimp tapas (comes with 6 shrimp), chicken skewers (3 small skewers), and meatballs (3). Each dish was $8-$12. What was nice is food comes out quickly but our tab for still not being full was $36 for two of us, which is just too over priced for us.... More

Known for their tapas and sangria we were not disappointed. Tried 6 different tapas and all were good. We did not try the paella but some at our table had had it before and said it was very good. There is outdoor seating that is plentiful. Tables are large, my only negative was the noise level. It was very difficult... More

This visit was for dinner and we not disappointed. They offer a wide variety of dishes, and the cool things is you can try many (as they are small portions) and... More

We love this restaurant for their tapas and sangria. We go to the south location. They have many choices of tapas. We try different ones each time we go. They also serve full plate meals. We always enjoy the choices they offer. We like to go on Sundays, they offer 1/2 price on their sangria and have Spanish dancers with... More

The quality of food is exceptional here. I have tried a number of their dishes and can't recall a single one I didn't like. They have a nice variety of tapas all the time and at lunch have some entrees. I tried a chicken entree this last visit and it was up to their high standards--it was delicious and superb... More

The atmosphere has a great vibe Parking was very close, free, and off the road (the location is on a busy street and it... More

We enjoyed selections from the tapas menu for dinner al fresco on a recent perfect summer evening. We were delighted to see that this restaurant was dog friendly within their sidewalk seating section. Our favorite tapas was the goat cheese served with garlic crostinis (Queso de Cabra al Horno). Above all, really friendly staff, especially our waitress, Lindsey.
