La Bodega was good as usual but better tonight. 1/2 price Red Sangria pitchers are a deal. Ahi tuna peppers were extra flavorful and also half price! Great atmosphere, great patio, friendly staff. The place to go for an amazing Happy Hour.

After studying abroad in Spain, I always look for some great Spanish food state-side. La Bodega has it all. A wide variety of tapas. You can go with the classics like Queso de Cabra or Patatas Bravas or try something out-of-the-ordinary like Pulpo (Octopus). Their Gin and Tonic Project is pretty cool. Also, the happy hour has the best prices... More

I've been here three times, and have had great food every time. Besides a menu of several dozen tapas, La Bodega always has a chef's menu with other tapas. I have yet to try even half of the options, but everything I have eaten was delicious. The wine menu is extensive, but if you like sangria, give it a try.... More

Great staff, food, wine, atmosphere, music, etc. I have been for both family dinners and have taken clients there for lunches/dinners. If you go during a nice afternoon or evening be sure to try sitting outside.

Great menu and atmosphere Love the new patio. White Sangria pitcher is a must. Great place for a large group or date night.

This place was recommended by a friend for Tapa's. Really large restaurant with nice outdoor space. As we wanted to watch the baseball game, we sat at the bar. Bartenders were great and provided good service. Ordered a couple of Tapa's. They were good, but the artichoke hearts were just OK - didn't like how they were fried.

I have been here many times and always had great food and service. Today was a disappointment. When we arrived there were only three other tables being waited on at lunch time and our waitress was pleasant. As the place started to fill up we never saw our waitress again and had to ask two other wait staff for bread.... More
