My husband and I ate at Bodega after seeing the Virginia Symphony at Chrysler Hall. It is in walking distance to the venue which meant that we were able to leave our car in the Bank Street parking garage while we ate dinner. Because the symphony did not end until 10 p.m., I had made an on-line reservation for a... More

Amazing dinner. Super friendly and accommodating staff. Ryan the GM was a great host. Coelacanth and the chef did a remarkable job pairing the course together. This place is a gem for sure I will definitely be returning soon.

If you aten't eating here, you're missing out. Will (our server) was amazing. The drinks were perfectly poured by Kaley. And Ryan was a gracious host as the manager. The food was excellent. Especially the hand made tortelloni and the airline chicken brrast special. I will be back.

Delicious seared tuna! Would definitely return to enjoy this wonderful meal. Although Tapas-size in portion, it was plenty for my light, evening preference. Lovely little Bodega restaurant, romantic, great food, excellent service. We look forward to returning soon!

Visited Bodega a few weeks ago with my wife and decided to try as many tapas as we could. All of them were fantastic and we had a good amount to take home. Parking was a lot easier that what I expected for a downtown location so I was pleasantly surprised. Service was flawless and their Moscow mules as the... More

Being a local, This quaint little bar popped up on my walk around the block. I stopped in and was immediately impressed by the elegant, but laid back atmosphere. The bartender, Anne-Randolph, works diligently to ensure promptness of your order and goes out of her way to carry on a conversation making your visit personal. I highly recommend this establishment,... More
