Great tasting and unique fare. Good drinks. Enjoyable atmosphere. Went there to meet with friend and it was a little difficult to hear, but it was busy.

This is a perfect location for white or red sangria. White is best. Had several tapas and loved everyone of them. Great to share the tapas. Friendly staff. Wonderful for happy hour and lunch. Great for groups of friends. Clean and stylish. Perfecto.

Quickly: tapas are like appetizers. In Spain people meet at restaurants instead of the home. Tapas are the food they share when it isn't meal time. La Bodega is a fun place for happy hour or a late lounging dinner with friends. Drink Sangria and eat tapas. My wife lived in Spain for several months and has been craving Spanish... More

Fun place for happy hour to lounge with friends, drink Sangria and eat tapas. I would recommend going with girlfriends and not with husbands. Things get expensive with a man eating tapas. In any case, it would be a fun and relaxed place for a first date. Although, it can get busy and crowded and may not be the best... More

A few of my friends and I had our monthly dinner get together at La Bodega! All I can say is that I loved this restaurant! The atmosphere, food, service, the wine list…I could go on! All the dishes we ordered were amazing! We all choose a few tapas and just kept ordering as the night went on until we... More

My husband and I LOVE tapas / small plates! It was our first time eating at La Bodega while we were traveling from South Carolina to Colorado. The atmosphere was amazing. They have a great wine list and menu. Two dishes that I remember were amazing were the spanish paprika encrusted pork that was so tasty and melted in our... More

La Bodega has a lovely and welcoming outdoor space. We saw it from the street earlier in the day and decided to go for dinner. I'll admit to not being a big tapas/small plates fan. At the end I never feel like I've had a complete dinner. So I left the choices up to my dining partners and advice from... More

My wife and I happened on this place after the Boulevard Brewery Tour and wow we were blown away. I would put this up against any Tapas we've had in the State's and the happy hour deals were amazing. You can go crazy and order almost the entire happy hour menu which was fantastic and a pitcher of sangria and... More

We arrived at 2 pm for a late lunch and discovered that La Bodega's Happy Hour begins at 2 pm. We had the restaurant almost to ourselves at that time of day. Service was professional, polished, and sound advice was shared. Two of the four tapas we ordered were 1/2 off- the Judias Verdes (green beans, potatoes, and figs) and... More

Best sangria I have ever had. Tapas are a wonderful way to sample a number of dishes. The crepes with feta and leeks, scallops, asparagus with smoked salmon were all chart toppers.
