Birthday Celebration

Went to a triple surprise birthday party. Atmosphere was festive with great food. The wings and meatballs were excellent and they have a large drink menu. We are able to have our own DJ and dance.

My girl and I had 4:30 reservations, we arrived early and was seated immediately. Our server was prompt in greeting us and taking our order for cocktails. Both cocktails were delicious. We then moved on to the TAPAS, my girl ordered roasted mussels and I had the calamari, both were amazing, carrying delightful flavor. I had the pan-seared duck, loved... More

My wife and I went here for our anniversary dinner. We were impressed by the tasteful decor and small but cozy atmosphere. We went on a Tuesday, so it wasn't too crowded. Our server was friendly and checked on us periodically. My wife had an espresso martini and I had a chocolate mint martini, very delicious. For the appetizers we... More

and yet it always feels like the staff is family, welcoming you and spoiling you with great food, beverages and service. I love this place! Amazing patio in the better weather months, but it's so cozy and welcoming in winter. Really friendly and knowledgeable staff!

We had a real nice evening at Bodega. The service was spot on - attentive but not rushed and very helpful for our food allergies. A jazz band was playing, which was a surprise and appreciated. Food was great. We liked it that they didn't heap our plates but was portioned just right. Very relaxing evening. We will return.

We sat on the back patio. There was a nearby club with music that competed with Bodega's music, which was a bit distracting. We split an appetizer of the Lobster Mac and Cheese and it stole the show. While my husband liked his lamb couscous and I thought my Bay of Fundy Salmon was tasty, we both keep talking about... More

Bodega is a large upscale restaurant and bar that still feels like a cozy neighborhood bar! The bartenders remember your name and your favorite drink. They have an amazing martini menu but the amazing bartenders will create one for you too! The food is delicious!! The patio is gorgeous...feels like a secluded and cool getaway...right off of the busy Coventry... More

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.
