“Small Plates, Big Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

This is a small restaurant but very cozy. The variety on the menu can match any palet. This is a favorite go-to place to catch up with friend. We each order two things. They all come as they are prepared, so we share and munch and talk the night away.

“OLe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

La Bodega offers Spanish wines and tapas equally as good as those served at Jose Andreas' Jaleo....The chef table is especially fun with a large group. Intimidated by Spanish wines???No, problem, let P.J. the manager and beveredge director assist. Delicioso!

“Amazing happy hour.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

Amazing happy hour - something for everyone! Sangria pitchers are half off during happy hour. I wish they had more non-dairy options, but other than that, it's a great place to take friends.

“If you like tapas...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

I really enjoy tapas as much for the atmosphere and spirit as the flavors and La Bodega gets it all right. Is it the "most" authentic, I can't be the judge of that but its fresh and delicious and the place bristles with energy and chit-chat. They have a nice little, semi-private room off kitchen and the rest of the dining is smallish room with a glass-walled, street-side view back to downtown KC. It's a short cab ride from downtown, Crown Center or the Plaza. If I were to nit-pick, I would rather see their bar turned such that eating at the bar didn't require you to have your back to rest of the diners. This is a very small complaint and completely understandable when you see the way the room lays out.
