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

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.

My daughter's wedding reception at La Bodega was delightful in every way. The restaurant's decor is beautiful and the food was unique and delicious. The manager we worked with, Brooke Silvey is very professional and accommodating and the service was excellent. 125 people enjoyed the event very much.

Went to La Bodega for brunch and happy hour in the same week. The food and service was excellent. The small plates (ordered 5) easily fed three people. Our waitress was great in that she let us know that the end of happy hour was approaching so we could get any last minute orders in. The white wine sangria was... More

Came here following a show at Kauffman Center. It was really busy, but we sat at the bar and had a drink while we waited. The atmosphere here is so fun! Specialty drinks are incredible and the bartenders were very knowledgable.

We had a great afternoon experience. The tapas were excellent, with great service. Our waitress was very helpful in making menu suggestions, and she was very knowledgeable on the ingredients and preparation. She made our late lunch very enjoyable. Our sangria drinks were awesome. Would definitely recommend this place!
