Bodega is a trendy, popular spot. The restaurant was full, the staff was friendly/professional, and the food quality was quite good. But the menu consists of dishes that have food and/or sauces that clash; e.g., one dish alone has crispy duck, scallops, chocolate mole, avocado,...More

Great service and knowledgeable staff really complement the incredible food & wine menu on offer. We’ve been a couple of times now and there are always new items you can try. It’s a bit on the pricier end but definitely worth every cent. There’s also...More

Bodega is a great place for couples and smal groups. Took my wife there for her birthday, and we had a great experience. From the food, wine to the friendly and always smiling staff. They brightened the atmosphere in a slightly dimmed restaurant. Highly recommend!

Not sure why people like this restaurant. The fish was nice but very over powering smell. The rest of the food was average. 4 girls served us and 3 were really rude and snooty. Highly not recommended.

It was a pleasant night. Thought the music was going to be too loud but it was turned down which made it easy for us to talk to each other. The place itself is cosy. We shared a number of dishes - started with the...More
