Went to La Bodega on a Saturday afternoon. They were having half price drinks in the afternoon. The tapas are delicious and you can tell they are fresh. It was a nice relaxing place to share with friends. The prices are very reasonable. Enjoyed it very much.

I've been eating at La Bodega for years. Recently I had two very different meal experiences there, both excellent, so I thought I would submit a review because this restaurant is a real gem. If you're like I am and haven't been for awhile you should really go. This restaurant had sort of slipped off my radar over the past... More

Wonderful experience. My server, Nathalie was AWESOME and gave me some great pointers for other foodie joints for my weekend in KC. David was also super welcoming and gave me more great eats locals. Refreshingly hip. I highly recommend the Solomillo with Queso Cabrales which is a beef tenderloin with Spanish blue cheese as a great tapas starter.

We went for happy hour and ordered a pitcher of sangria, only $15, and five or six tapas including a dessert. What a bargain! My personal favorite was the calamari which was almost a meal unto itself. All at half price. You can spend much more for dinner but it may well not be as good. Service was aces as... More

La Bodega has been a longtime staple in KC restaurants, and I was recently reminded why. The tapas and sangria are consistently good and the atmosphere is great. But it's the service that always brings me back. I actually went to two different birthday meals at La Bodega in the last week, one at each location. Enjoyed both a lot.... More

Hubby and I came here after our plane landed for a date night before returning home. We lucked out and found a parking space along the road right in front of the restaurant. The staff was welcoming and there were lots of good options on the menu. We tried a bit of everything, and found the prices to be very... More

Their happy hour half-price tapas make this a place we visit frequently. Great food and great atmosphere.
