Most of the food was good. I tried to order three different beers, but they did not have any of those I wanted in stock. The waiter kept pushing us to order our entrees, but the restaurant was not very busy and we felt a little rushed. The last plate we ordered took much longer than anticipated, and it was overcooked.

We had not been to Bodega for a year or so, so we dined there before a performance at Severance Hall. We have had several great meals at Bodega, unfortunately this was not one of them. The menu has changed and the preparation of dishes is different, so items we have loved in the past but were either not available (lobster nachos) or not enjoyable (lobster nachos and cheese). I did enjoy the beef short ribs but my wife did not eat her eggplant parmesan over pasta. The staff did take the eggplant off our check and threw in a dessert, but we left disappointed be and unsure if we will return

I ordered Chicken Fez but they were out of it. Apparently they had a big party on Friday and sold out. Odd because tonight is Sunday - 2 days later?? The waiter suggested Chicken Tajine a house special. The dish was not great, a bit salty and soupy. On a brighter note the Hummus player was good.

We went there for my birthday. Had a marvelous time. Create a special dish for one of our guest was a vegetarian. Love the place!

The everyday prices are fairly high on tapas but on Tuesday they are half price and a real treat so we took advantage of that for a great cheap meal with lots of variety. Only complaint was lots of salt in everything with tomato sauce. The escargot was incredible.

The food was amazing. Really amazing. But the service made us all uncomfortable. The staff was fighting amongst themselves and telling us about it. We didn’t know who our server was. When we found her, she was inattentive at best and downright uninterested in serving us. I don’t think we’ll go back. But for takeout, I’d go back again and again all the time. Amazing food.

Food was very good. Morrocan menu items were authentic and well prepared. Wine list is not large but suits menu well. Service is adequate and prompt but a little too familiar.

Our waiter, Paul, was the highlight of our dinner, but the food was a close second! Paul was able to recommend the crab cakes, which had a lovely lemon aoili, and the lamb lollipops, which were a generous size for an appetizer. My boyfriend and I also ordered the kafta pizza and tiramisu, both of which were delicious. Paul took very good care of us, and service was just the right speed: enough to be sure it was pretty fresh, but not so long you got antsy. Also, splitting tapas and small plates was definitely the right move here; best value and most variety. We went on a Sunday night, so it was pretty empty and quiet, but they had nice music and a good atmosphere overall. Decor was kind of a mishmash, but that's not why you go to a restaurant. We didn't sit in the lounge area but it looks like it'd be fun on a Friday or Saturday. We had a Groupon so the value was great, but even without it, the place isn't unreasonably expensive at all for tapas and drinks. Would definitely recommend to a friend in the Coventry area, or going to see a show at the Grog Shop. Good food, good service, good vibe, good value!

Went on a Saturday night after buying a Groupon.
The food was good. I had Eggplant Parmesan over Fettuccine and my partner had the appetiser size Lollypop Lamb Chops.
As with other Groupon deals, the service was not good. No bread. No mention of dessert.
We dined outside in a smallish space which was adjacent to the street.
It was very pleasant and not at all noisy.
I think if I lived walking distance, I'd go there for take out.

The atomosphere is dark and the place is not ADA compliant. Service as a bit slow but the staff was friendly. Be prepared for noise, it is not a quiet venue. However, w+hat was extremely good was the food and value you received for the cost. Bodega is not cheap, but portion size even for the tapas was fantastic. Overall good place to go.

The food was ok but it was overpriced and the description in the menu weren't 100% accurate. For instance, my meal was lathered in BBQ sauce but nowhere in the menu did it mention BBQ sauce. Also the tables are rather small so your menus overlap each other. It wouldn't hurt for the server to be more friendly either but I guess he didn't care because gratuity was already included.

The food was delicious and perfectly good. The Lamb lollipops were to die for, and the mussels were too! And the snails could not have been better. The sauces for both the mussels and escargot were delectable, and the wonderful warm bread with a perfectly crunchy crust was put to use to get to every last drop,
