A word from La Bodega - Kansas City
"Tapas" - In the beginning. Tapas is a daily event in the life of the Spanish culture. Mainly a Northern Spain, Basque regional tradition, it has grown to signify a way of eating and socializing. It is said that tapas originated centuries ago. In Spanish, the word tapa or the verb tapar means "to cover." Tapas represents the Spanish custom of placing a piece of bread over the glass of wine. It is a custom that dates back past the 1500's. Traditionally, the exact food served is less important than the social occasion. Tapas is a way of life. It signifies leisure, camaraderie and good humor. In Spain, Tapas are almost always accompanied by wine. They are not so much about talking as they are about eating and drinking. The wine is the medium that holds the conversation with friends and the food together. You make time to enjoy the moment in an unhurried way. The threefold purpose of snacking on tapas is to dull any hunger pangs that have built up since the previous intake of comestibles.Continued

  • "We pass by this place on our way to the KC symphony and decided to stop for a light snack instead of dinner. We ordered two tapas which were excellent! This was also a great start to our evening since the symphony was featuring classical Spanish guitar and a guest conductor from Mexico."

  • "Born and raised in Kansas City, yet never made it in to this gem until after we moved away to the West Coast. During a trip back to KCMO, stayed downtown for some eats and a couple of glasses of wine. Decent selection of wines, fun list of Sangria options and other mixed drinks, plus there were dozens of great tapas we wanted to try. Sadly, our table - and appetites - were only big enough for a few during this trip, but there were many others we hope to try soon. Give this place a visit."

  • "Took a friend visiting from New Jersey to this resteraunt. I've been there for lunch many times, and loved each time. Night time was a little noisy and we were forced to talk loudly to each other all through the meal. We were also seated very close to the next table, and I noticed the man at the next table kept wandering his gaze to our table, as if he was bored with listening at his own table and wanted to hear what we were saying. It's just that he was so close, it appeared that way to me. All in all it was a pleasant meal, but I don't care to have to shout throughout the meal. The food was great as always, and the service was great. A little expensive. I dropped almost 130.00 for just two people."

  • "Our night at La Bodega was one of joy. This was the best service experienced by us this year! The food was excellent! It was not without some flaws but the way the staff responded more made up for this minor problem.We are planning on visiting this fine restaurant very soon. It has a fun and vibrant atmosphere."
