A pleasant upscale establishment. Good quality food. Pleasant ambience. Good service. Tables are a bit awkward to sit at if you have longer limbs so I might recommend bar seating for some.

About the restaurant
Bodega Highlands, nestled in one of Edmonton's most historic residential neighborhoods, a step away from the majestic River Valley. Our Highlands location has gained the reputation for being the perfect spot for a date night. With just 40 seats, this intimate space is moody and romantic. During the summer, snag a spot on the patio, and settle in. Our Spanish and Portuguese Tapas offerings will transport you.
We want to be a friendly neighbourhood restaurant & kindly ask guests to observe a two hour dining experience on busy nights so we can entertain as many of our cherished patrons as who want to come in.
Our Patio is now first come, first served. We are also taking reservations for up to 4 with open table. For any reservations larger than 4, please phone us at (780) 757-0137!

I've never had a bad meal at any Bodega and dinner last night at Bodega Highlands was a 10/10. Great food, thoughtful service, buckets of ambience and can we talk about the cherry cheesecake? Best in the city as far as I'm concerned. Thanks, Bodega, I'll keep coming back.
