Bodega Spanish Tapas & Lounge
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.
Thank you guys for service and surprise for my 85 years old dad. Food is awesome, had potatoes, shrimp and cold tuna tapas, yammm. My dad had a steak was very impressed. Thank you guys
Very nice Spanish food at a reasonable price. The patio is really wonderful and the service super-good
Great neighborhood restaurant. Service is prompt and attentive, food is good and atmosphere is lively
The Bodega is one of my favorite restaurants. The only drawback is that sometimes the bar patron noise level is so high it’s hard to talk at a nearby table.
Food was amazing but service was lacking. Not slow, just not very attentive and seemed distracted. Took a while to get water and then was missing silverware. But for how delicious the food was, the less-than-stellar service won't stop me from coming back in the future!
Service was extremely poor. The bus boy attended to us more then our actual server.
Service was ok not great, but food and venue were really good
Tables are real close
Great food and great service! Our server was really friendly and helpful.
The amazing tapas is always consistent here, as well as the wine list.
Great service and low nice lighting and cute red/black decor.
Weekend brunches with flamenco guitar and dancers! Highly recommend this gem that I've been going to for years.
Went with a large group of 9 people. They seated us and promptly and took drink orders. Food was good and service was good. Heads up they only take two credit cards per group.
So good! Highly recommended.
First time trying tapas we enjoyed all the options and food.
Went for Valentine's day. They were clearly unprepared. We had a 9pm reservation and didn't get seated for over half an hour...but those around us and been there since 7pm and still had not received their entrees for dinner. Table next to us pleaded for their check and didn't care if they got their final entree or dessert at that point...2.5hrs there was enough.
Hopefully not indicative of the norm. The food was outstanding. Sangria was good. Drinks we had before dinner were good. Just woefully unprepared for the crowd they had.
Open Table or Bodega booked too many reservations.
Around 7:30-8:30 pm, people were lined up at door with reservations.
Limited menu was not that good
Very slow service on a very busy night.
