My wife and I were looking for a relaxed atmosphere and casual, unusual food. Bodega was just right. We sat at the bar, ordered drinks, a Cosmo and Mojito. We took our time, started with grilled Caesar and focaccia. Delicious. We lingered, enjoying the unrushed but attentive service. For our second selection, we ordered the tortellini and crispy artichoke hearts.... More

We visited Friday night after a long day at work, before we went to watch a play at the Chrysler Hall. Our waiter was professional, knowledgeable and attentive to all of us. He made awesome drink and food recommendations. It was happy hour and the calamari and lettuce wraps were delicious. The drinks and desserts were excellent as well.

Nice evening out with another couple before a show at the Chrysler Theater in Norfolk. Walking distance to parking and the theater - minutes away. Food was interesting/different and wine was reasonably priced. I guess it's more of a beer and Spanish Tapas menu but we got around that with ease. Nice choice on the menu. Wine was so-so but...

Food was only mediocre. The people were friendly. Decor was nice. We got a soggy salad and they adjusted the price when pointed out. likely will not go back to dine.

My husband and I ate at Bodega after seeing the Virginia Symphony at Chrysler Hall. It is in walking distance to the venue which meant that we were able to leave our car in the Bank Street parking garage while we ate dinner. Because the symphony did not end until 10 p.m., I had made an on-line reservation for a... More

Amazing dinner. Super friendly and accommodating staff. Ryan the GM was a great host. Coelacanth and the chef did a remarkable job pairing the course together. This place is a gem for sure I will definitely be returning soon.

If you aten't eating here, you're missing out. Will (our server) was amazing. The drinks were perfectly poured by Kaley. And Ryan was a gracious host as the manager. The food was excellent. Especially the hand made tortelloni and the airline chicken brrast special. I will be back.

Delicious seared tuna! Would definitely return to enjoy this wonderful meal. Although Tapas-size in portion, it was plenty for my light, evening preference. Lovely little Bodega restaurant, romantic, great food, excellent service. We look forward to returning soon!
