I have been to La Bodega many times. My friends really enjoy the place. I considered it a triumph of style over substance. I like the tapas, but I don't love them and the sangria always seemed a little watered down to me. Then I...More

Spent a glorious Sunday afternoon imbibing delicious Sangria (half price) and a delightful selection of small plates (tapas - many half price as well). It's amazing how these small plates can fill one up. Great service, welcoming ambiance, can't go wrong!

Good food and location. Nice ambience for causal dinner. Food was very good. One criticism is that when I have been to other Tapa type restaurants, when you order several dishes, they are brought out one or two at a time, let you finish before...More

Most lovely little place. The atmosphere is uplifting, and the staff is welcoming. The Tapas here are amazing and full of flavor. I can’t remember everything we had, but the calamari was great! There was also a cheese plate that was delicious. There is nothing...More
