I had driven by this restaurant many times and witnessed packed crowds. I finally stopped in for lunch and quickly learned why. The menu was unique, and offered something different for everyone. Very easy to eat here if you are vegetarian, vegan, or intolerance to gluten. The menu has extensive and desirable options for people who can eat anything or... More

Everything we ate was delicious. We wish we could try everything on the menu. The tapas we chose were incredible. Some of the best scallops I've ever had. The crepe left our taste buds very happy. Great decor. We can't wait to come back!

Hands down my favorite restaurant in Kansas City. The food is always delicious and with so many choices for tapas everyone can find something they enjoy. Their happy hour is especially great since the prices aren't quite as high. Sangria is terrific and very comparable to that I've had in Spain. The service is always friendly and fast and the...

Recommended tapas: pan tomate, bacon-wrapped dates, white bean spread, pulled pork montaditos, jamon iberico. They did an excellent job with these. I would not recommend the aceitunas, if you are looking for authentic, mellow-flavored olives; these were more like the highly vinegared greek olives. I would also skip the gambas a la plancha; just not what I'm used to. Did... More

Seriously, Sangrias and Tapas........ Do I really need to go on? You are not human if you do not love this place. Every time I have traveled to Kansas City I stop here and its always been amazing. The only thing I could add is our server Jessica was an absolute delight!

Went looking for some lunch after visiting Union Station. Craving Mexican. Manny's Mexican Restaurant was closed, but a passing couple pointed us down Southwest Boulevard. It's just past a highway overpass, and admittedly the neighborhood looks like it could be rough after dark. But it was Sunday afternoon so we went in. Glad we did! Service was great, they offer...

One of the things that we do when sitting at a bar is ask the bartender where they would go "next." La Bodega was suggested, so we chose to try a late afternoon snack with a drink there. So good! Love the atmosphere! We enjoyed the Piperade and Alubias Blancas as our snack, and were more than pleased. Service was... More

We visited this place with some friends. We had a great time. The service was excellent. They offer lots of wine options. Our group ended up sharing 10 tapas. Most were very good, a couple were just so so. This is a place to socialize with your friends rather than looking for a sit down fancy dinner. The tapas are... More
