Host actually disagreed on how long he said it would be and kept disagreeing. So rude. Can't tell you how the food is because after being told we had a fifteen to twenty minute wait, we waited forty five minutes, waited patiently and after asked how much longer because it had been way past twenty minutes and we had come...

The restaurant itself has a great Friday/Saturday night dinner atmosphere for couples or friends; I loved the decor inside! The outside is deceiving. The drinks are very tasty and the food was very good too. There were so many different tacos to choose from and all were amazing! Two complaints - some items are overpriced and the waitress kept pushing... More

We went to Bodega for late lunches and Ashton's margaritas. We fell in love with the tacos and now go there for it all. Daytime is not crowded, service great and no noise. Unfortunatly, at nights its too crowded and noisy.

Great menu, very good staff and service. Not typical Mexican food, more so a South American type menu, alot of different cuisine influences, but they claim they are Mexican. I could care less as long as the food is good, and I thought it was, with a few minor exceptions. Not bad, but some of the dishes were a bit... More

The food is great! Interesting combinations and everything is very good. You order everything separately, so try as many different kinds as you can. It's very small so off times are easier to get seating, and they do take reservations. Also you need to be 21 or over (or with an adult).

We like to visit Bodega for appetizers and lighter fare after a trip to the movies as it is usually very crowded earlier in the evening. We love the charred Brussels sprouts and Mexican street corn and highly recommend both. They also have many specials every day so you can always try something new when you visit. Service is good...

By far the best tacos around. Everything we have tried has been delicious. The restaurant itself is small but if you're able to get a table-it's worth it. Takeout is also a great option.

This place was packed for a Monday night. This was my 4th or 5th time here, in addition to takeout a couple times, and it's really mixed. The service is decent and good vibe - very authentic - but the food quality is inconsistent. Prices and really decent - I got a main plate, pollo a la plancha for $13.... More
