Good food

The portions are great, and the Groupon makes the value well worth it. Everyone in my party enjoyed their food. The atmosphere was great and the music was cool. Don't allow them to seat you near the door, because it gets a bit nippy as people come in and out. Sit closer to the bar so you can... read more

This is a wonderful place. Nice variety on the menu. Service was good. Looking forward to warmer weather to sit out in the beautiful patio.

I have gone to Bodega many times and always had a great time. The atmosphere is wonderful, with interesting and sophisticated decoration, that is urban and ethnic at the same time. The live music, that includes different genres on different week days, adds even more to the experience. The newly re-opened patio is gorgeous, with comfortable lounge chairs and even... More

I was served the worst cut of a steak. It was nothing but fat, and it came out rare instead of medium.

I picked Bodega for my birthday as soon as I saw its Moroccan menu and I'm glad I did. Everything was excellent. I started with the lobster macaroni and cheese appetizer. This is a good one to share because they give you a lot and you want room for the rest of your meal. I then had the lamb mrouzia... More

I was very disappointed by my recent experience at this restaurant. This was my second visit. My first was a few years ago, and it was pretty pleasant. This visit, not so much. We dined here for my birthday a few weeks ago. Our waiter wasn't very pleasant, and didn't show us a lot of attention. He didn't go over... More

Had a wonderful dinner and wine at Bodega. I had the short ribs, mashed potatoes and asparagus. The lobster nachos were a little bit of a disapointment. Used a restaurant.com certificate which the savings ended up being used for a bottle of good wine. I loved the atmosphere and the bar area looked really nice. When I walked in and... More

Bodega is simply a great place to eat, drink and party with friends. Two of the best evenings of my life have started inside and ended up (hours later) on the back deck. The food is excellent and the drinks are fantastic! Luckily we can, and do, walk home.

They have a variety of food from the Mediterranean. Very great flavors and big portions of food! Pasta very delicious, and the seafood dish was tasty.

Met a friend at the Bodega on a beautiful September evening and decided to dine on the back patio. While the atmosphere is lacking due to surrounding streets, the service was very good. The wedge salad and Seafood stew were great. The stew was loaded with mussels, clams, scallops, shrimp and lobster for only $35. I will definitely be back... More
