Dinner

Great food for sharing! The perfect amount of food - my girlfriend and I split four different tapas. I would recommend the meatballs and the bruschetta. Dessert was also good!

Passing through KC for 1 night. La Bodega came highly recommended by friends. Lived up to its expectations. Fun,fun place! Specialty drink menu .... Wanted to try everything! Had an extraordinary rye drink with fig infusion. Great list of wines and cavas! Shared 2 cold tapas and 4 hot tapas....one was as delicious as the other. Hope to pass through... More

We walked here from our hotel for lunch one day at the end of October. We ordered for Topas items and a couple of drinks. We thought all were wonderful. We were lucky enough to get there for happy hour, so the pricing was really fantastic. I would highly recommend La Bodega to anyone visiting the area.

Both locations are great but the Crossroads one has a funkier vibe...feels a bit like Lower Manhattan for this former New Yorker. Great brunch menu and a laid back place to chill on a Sunday morning. Lunch or dinner during the week never disappoints though! Gets pretty crowded on weekends but the outdoor seating atmosphere makes it worth the wait.... More

It was my first time in Kansas and on my second night we went to dinner, my boyfriend, his brother and his family, I mean the Shipman family. They chose La Bodega. To my surprise a Spain place and a waiter who speaks Spanish. Very good service. We chose a variety of tapas to share between 8 commensal, in addition... More

This has been an amazing go to spot for me for over a decade. The owner JT has done remarkable job of sustaining great food, service and atmosphere over the years. First dates, special nights out or for happy hour this place has never disappointed me and I will continue to frequent it hopefully for years to come!

My husband and I visited La Bodega today for lunch and we were pleasantly pleased with our experience!! How have we missed this "gem" for so many years??!! We started out with the Queso Cabra from the Tapas menu. It was a delicious dish comprised of goat cheese baked in a homemade tomato sauce and served with garlic crostinis. For... More

My wife and I ate lunch at La Bodega in KCMO for our first visit. It was an outstanding meal! We shared a tapas as appetizer and each had an entree. She had the beet/arugula salad and I had a Cuban sandwich. All the food was impressive. The service was great and the Sangria recipe was the best we have... More

My husband and I recently came here during our trip to Kansas City and we had a great dining experience. Yes, the sangria is amazing! We had the red and loved it. We had several tapas but our favorites were the Pintxos de Higo, Albondigas Caseras, and the Datiles con Jamón y Chorizo. Our server was very friendly - all... More

If you are looking for the Spanish equivalent of a French Bistro, La Bodega is it! There are 2 LaBodga locations. This is a review of the one in Kansas City. During good weather you might want to sit outside the restaurant to enjoy some street scene watching or go inside and enjoy relaxed dining in a more spacious eating... More
