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!

Met a girlfriend here for happy hour last week - was amazed by the drink and food specials and the quality of both. Definitely will return!

We were leaving West Bottoms and heading to our hotel in the plaza, looking for a place to grab a drink... The decor lured us in and it was well worth it. Check them out.

I have never eaten at La Bodega, however, I have always been intrigued by the outside atmosphere and idea of tapas. So, I decided to spend the afternoon at the restaurant celebrating the birthday of my lovely wife, and I am so happy to have made the decision to dine there. We enjoyed the five different tapas and the pitcher... More

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
