Really good tapas, good wine selection, in a middle-sized but intimately-organized space. Service is efficient. Reservations not necessarily required, depending on the day of the week and the season. NB--if you use their wi-fi, a notice about the restaurant goes automatically to everyone on your Facebook list.

tapas were very good (loved the shrimp aioli), and very good prices. Sangría was very refreshing and beer was cold. service was quick.

We had a nice, light lunch at Bodega. A great seafood soup was loaded with chunks of fish and whole clams and shrimp. The garlic shrimp was sizzling and wonderful, the chicken croquetas were great and the sangria was perfect!

I spent time in Spain this summer and thoroughly enjoyed the tapas experience. Glad to see that there are restaurants on this side of the pond that also enjoys tapas causal experience. The tables were frankly too small to accommodate the dishes but once the dishes arrive they just don't last long! The octopus, squid, green beans and spinach were... More

Super food with massive choice. For pudding try the fig ice cream with sauce - absolutely fabulous. The atmosphere is great but be warned it is very noisy and busy.

If your looking for good value tapas, Bodega isn't a bad start. The atmosphere isn't great, it's dark & the day we went for lunch only one of the 4 waiters deemed ineterestd in serving the half dozen or so that were in there. The food was fine for what it is, but for me to go back for tapas... More

First, we walk in, the host makes eye contact with us but doesn't greet us, checks something on her counter and then greets us very mildly. Then, we go to sit, apparently she was sitting other people but had told us to follow her, so we went to sit down but the table was for someone else. Awkward. Why not... More

The food was tasting quite nicely. The atmosphere seemed good as well. My only concern was that they recommend that you order 2-3 dishes per person due to their sizes and then your meal ends up pricy. I had the paella mixta which was delicious with enough seafood and chicken in it and it was enough for me. The rest... More
