Judging by the wonderful recommendations of our Hotel staff, we knew that it would be a popular place, so we made reservations for the four of us. Good thing we did, because the place was quite crowded. As we were being led to our table in the back room, we realized that this place is so much bigger than it... More

We arrived without a reservation on a Thursday evening around eight during the holidays. They were busy but encouraged us to wait at the bar for a table to open up, which we did. We were seated after about thirty minutes. The first "wave" of food arrived promptly, 10 minutes or so after ordering. All of the dishes ordered were... More

Maybe we caught them on a bad day. Tapas were pretty good. Lentil and chorizo soup was very good. Jamon serrano bruchetta was also very good. Spanish omelet was tasty. The palomilla steak we ordered medium well for my daughter was too rare and took a while. But what was most disappointing was the service. I kept having to look... More

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.
