I lived in Norfolk 10 years ago and Bodega was our favorite restaurant. I went back to Norfolk at a business conference and had the opportunity to eat at Bodega.... and they still have it! Best food around! Meatiest crab cakes, awesome side items and veggies, interesting small dishes such as lettuce wraps, oysters and other seafood. Also has a decent wine list and awesome mixed drinks such as their famous sangria.

This is the restaurant where we chose to eat prior to seeing Wicked at Chrysler Hall. We had made reservations and were seated right on time. The waitress was excellent and even gave suggestions for drinks unique to Bodega. The crab bisque was delicious and so was the crab cake which we both ordered. We decided to share a salad since our waitress told us that would be a lot of food. She was correct! We both enjoyed our meal, the atmosphere and the pleasant staff we encountered. Will definitely return.

I've never been disappointed with The Bodega. Last night we shared a beer cheese fondue with long strips of garlic bread, crab cake with shoestring potatoes, and lazagna. Every dish was outstanding -- lick-the-plate-clean outstanding! I like that they serve each plate as it's ready, so hot food always comes out hot. It's a small restaurant but very chic with rustic exposed brick walls, pendant lighting, a few separate tables, and a long banquette along one wall with small well-spaced tables. Casual elegance. If there's a concert or play in town, make reservations.
