First experience and will be returning soon. Short Rib Pizza and Sangria by the pitcher was a great way to spend a sunny Friday afternoon.

We eat here at least once every American Royal Horse Show. It stays open late and we can get a good meal after the show. And because it is tapas...we can order the right amount of food for a late night. Great wine list too. We had a wonderful Spanish red. Great staff, great prices.

From someone who lives in KC- this is the best tapas place you will find here! They have a great happy hour during the week with many of their tapas and drinks on special. Order the sangria- you won't regret it.

We had lunch at LaBodega on a weekday. It was quiet. We shared a beet and arugula salad that was yummy. We followed that with the chicken croquettas , papas fritas (fried potatoes with a garlic aioli), albondigas (meatballs with a cream sauce and baguette slices) and datiles (dates wrapped in serrano ham). Everything was very good. The salad and... More

The food was AMAZING. We went for a late lunch and it was some of the best food I had all weekend in KC. The food was a European, Spanish influence and the decor was really awesome. I could have stayed all afternoon trying different things.

Sit outside, take a tapas newbie, point and order, and enjoy! An excellent choice for a business lunch, as the environ promotes an atmosphere of trust and sharing. If you are accustomed to the old typical eatery routine, this offers a great change of pace. Good launching point for a night in the Crossroads to boot!

We go here frequently. The happy hour specials on tapas and wine are our favorites. The beef filet with cabrales bleu cheese is my favorite entree. Service is very good.

My Partner and I went for a birthday dinner while visiting KC. The food was excellent and the service was great. Christy (sp) was our waitress and she gave us suggestions which we followed for the most part and were not disappointed. Our favorite was the short ribs. I cant wait for our next trip to KC to go back!

All the food was good except both the meatball tapas dishes they were not homemade tasted like frozen. All of the other tapa dishes were awesome! Our server Jesse was not friendly and when I told him this was our 1st time at a tapas Resturant he acted like we were bothering him when we asked questions. He acted like... More
