If you read my other reviews you'll see that I'm not a big brunch eater - I prefer lunch food for lunch. La Bodega has changed my view of brunch. It's a special non-restaurant in every way. From the second you walk in you feel...More

I adore La Bodega! It’s like an anti-restaurant as it is “members only.” A bit unorthodoxed with service but very fun. You go to the big table and get your side plates, silverware, napkins and water to bring back to your table. You receive a...More

As the co-owner Meek says, “this is not a restaurant!” What it is, though is a great dining and wine experience! Be sure to try the mushroom raviolis. Rick the Chef pick them in the wild! And he is a saucier extraordinary! Tell the the...More

We had a wonderful dinner at La Bodega, a lovely small wine bar and restaurant. Every dish that the four of us ordered was well-prepared, well-presented and delicious. I probably had the best lasagna I've ever tasted, and we all loved the Ceviche appetizer that...More

This is a "wine club' first, with food served secondarily (supposedly). However they offer fabulously diverse Cali/Euro cuisine focused on fresh local ingredients --truely farm to table (which changes daily, sometimes twice in a day). Service is just not conducted in a typical manner --...More
