We have been here a few times now and overall I would say this is one of my favorite places to eat. I love the tapas idea; there is so much to choose from. I love the Spanish coffee! The service is consistently good. I might mention though, if you get a pitcher of sangria they have two kinds and... More

There were four people in our party, so we were able to sample quite a few of the tapas small plates. ALWAYS exceptional are the bacon-wrapped dates. The fried potatoes are also fabulous. The goat cheese on toast, smothered with tomato sauce is also amazing. I don't thing we had anything that we didn't polish off pretty quickly. We started... More

We took friends for an evening out to La Bodega and once again were not disappointed. It is so great to see that there is consistency in both food and service at this fine restaurant. We enjoyed a variety of tapas -- there is something that will appeal for everyone. Plus you don't have to order everything at once, try... More

We took our Spanish exchange student to enjoy some food he was missing from home. We went during happy hour and had a great time sharing tapas. Our server was excellent too. We can't wait to go back! It was well worth the hour drive to get there.

La Bodega is the best place I've found in Kansas City for tapas. They have a great happy hour, even on the weekend, with discounted food and sangria. The decor is very eclectic and they have a decent size outdoor seating area that allows for passing the time on a weekend afternoon. The location is a little awkward tucked almost... More

The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. There were five girls in my party and we ordered 10 tapas. Favorites included flatbread with salmon and goat cheese, meatballs, beef tenderloin and chicken and chorizo skewers. The S'Mores dessert with a melty homemade marshmallow was heavenly. The waitress was the best. She was knowledgeable about the menu and made... More

I'm disappointed in you. I'm disappointed that you are sitting there reading my review instead of getting down to La Bodega and enjoying one of the best meals you can have in the entire region. We took a couple of hours to work our way through some tapas, and every single bite of every dish was excellent. There's variety here... More

The food was FANTASTIC. We had the bacon-wrapped, chorizo-stuffed dates, potatoes, meatballs and goat cheese. It was all incredible. The service was on point and will definitely be back! Make a reservation on the weekends, we did in advance and it was worked out great.

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.
