Bodega Spanish Tapas & Lounge
Horrible service but great food. Would not return
Very authentic taste! Loved the Patatas bravas (level of spice was great) and the Gambas al Ajillo.
loved everything except how cold it is they need to enclose the space more and add more heat lamps. beautiful setup and the food was amazing but i couldn’t feel my hands and feet most of the time
I must say I was pleasantly surprised to find this little gem on such short notice on New Year's Eve. I was very well attended and there Tapas selections were excellent. I was traveling from Florida therefore I appreciated the ambiance and friendly staff.
Since I am from Spain, I am always looking for a good spanish restaurant so that I can enjoy some traditional dishes (which is not always easy).
The food here was great. We really enjoyed the paella abanda. So tasty!
We'll be back for sure.
Great food! Very fresh ingredients, and awesome service. Will definitely visit again very soon!
Restaurant was great. Open Table did not know we went, they emailed as if we no-showed- not pleasant to be talked down to about letting the restaurant down- when we spent nearly $200 there! Also, OpenTable had a menu for 4 that was not on the restaurant menu.
Tapas dishes came out quickly, one was missing, but this was swiftly rectified. Service was efficient and friendly. Covid restrictions applied with out of use tables creating distance between diners. Overall good food and service, a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
If you are concerned about COVID ask to sit in the dining room upstairs because they have a basement that did not abide by the social distancing requirements for DC, compared to other restaurants that I felt comfortable with. Then the waiter was a bit put out when my father asked for new plates and silverware as different tapas came. The food was good and the wine was really good. I was a bit disappointed considering I've came before and was not disappointed. Bummer.
I love this place. New favorite!!! Highly recommend the braised rib stuffed peppers, absolutely amazing. My boyfriend and I got 2 tapas and split the seafood paella for one and it was plenty of food. The fish to rice ratio of the paella was impressive - tons of fish! Definitely will be coming back.
Amazing service, the tapas are always fantastic!
Fantastic dinner for our besties birthday! Food and service were superb. Thank you!
Food is very poor, especially the octopus a la plancha! It was overcook and very very small portion! Overall very low quality food!
I won’t come back
My favorite Spanish restaurant in DC!! The restaurant itself has the best energy, the service is amazing, the food is great. If you want a romantic and unique setting with the best Spanish food this place is for you.
One of my favorite restaurants in DC!
Bodega never disappoints. It felt very COVID safe!
Delicious food, alright service. Will definitely return.
The service and food was mediocre. We enjoyed the lamb chops recommended by the server, but the paella, bread, and shrimp were not dishes we enjoyed. We never got a refill on water the entire time we were there. It took about 10 minutes for someone to come take our order.
Very disappointing that they advertise their brunch on their site but don't have actually have it
Excellent! One of the best places to go in Georgetown! Can’t wait to be back.
Bodega has conflicting menus. Their online menu mentions unlimited tapas for brunch, and allows your to pair their pitchers of sangria for a discounted price. Alongside that, the receipt says the same thing, “joint us for our brunch specials “. But in fact, they do not offer these specials. Which ended up turning my 100 dollar meal for 2, to around 200 total. Definitely not worth the value, as you can get a lot more bang for your bucks elsewhere. The food was good, but certainly not at the price especially when you have to pay for the tapas individually. They need to correct their information, cuz the advertisement is incorrect. I wouldn’t have booked a table had I known their menu is different than what’s stated on their own website. I understand covid affects us all but it’s not hard to change a website so customers are aware, right?
Excellent food and extremely hard working staff
Fun and inexpensive! Good value for money. We had a fun double date with friends. Hi
If you are looking for some great Spanish tapas and sangria, check out the Bodega. They have a good selection of Spanish tapas and they are big dishes of tapas too. We ordered ham croquettes and we got like 7, where in usual Spanish eateries, you only received 4. The value is awesome as they give you a lot of food for the money. The red sangria is spectacular, and I just wish we didn't have to travel all the way to Arlington to get Spanish food. Unfortunately, there are no Spanish restaurants where we live near Richmond. So we traveled the 2.5 hours to check out the Bodega, and we are glad we did. They just need to add Chorizo and Manchego Empanadas to their menu.
Amazing food! I love everything on the menu. Their piella is the best. They had lots of hand sanitizer and wipes upon request and were careful not to put tables too close. Manager was great. Service was great, food was great. Everyone was wearing medical grade masks. Enthusiastic waiter was a little to close for comfort and in face at times when collecting plates and asking how meal was but it was manageable and he was very sweet. Thanks!
Great outdoor seating set up in the streets of Georgetown
Friendly staff, and a nice outdoor patio setup for Covid-era dining. We ordered Veggie Paella, Mushrooms, Patatas Bravas, and a Tomato Bread with Cheese. All were very tasty, with the Paella probably our favorite.
Dinner with the family. Had perfect paella, Salmon a la Plancha and calamari tapas. So good! Highly recommended!
I’ve never had a bad meal at bodega. The staff are always super friendly and accommodating and make dining there a pleasure. We ate out front under the tents and even with the buses passing by it was perfectly pleasant!
Back patio was very hot, but food was great and sparkiling rose was good
We went here to celebrate a birthday and the staff were great! Great food and a great atmosphere. I will definitely go back. Plus, they emphasized lots of safety measures because of COVID. 10/10
Food was decent. Appetizers overpriced. Entrees good value.
Excellent tapas appetizers and good sangria and cocktails
Great food, great service. Everything we ordered was amazing!
Food and service are always excellent. Only reason for 4 stars is that they need to find a way to level the tables they have outside on M Street; the street slants toward the curb and everything on our table continued to slide to one side during our stay which impacted our ability to truly enjoy our experience as much as we could have.
This is our third annual trip to this restaurant. We come back every year. Great food, excellent service.....good people.
Dope service, great prices, WONDERFUL bartender
We love Bodega! Great food, romantic atmosphere, & excellent service. We come here often for celebrations or date night.
