Tapas / Small Plates
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.

This place is always amazing! Hard to order something that I don’t like. It hasn’t happened yet, as a matter of fact. Great for all occasions.

Excellent food, great service. We went for the restaurant week ordered the lentil and chorizo soup, really tasty. Then we ordered the sample of tapas, good portions, beautiful presentation.

Not included included in the menu we ordered the churros and the Spanish coffee, excellent!

Went for KC restaurant week and it was a blast! The food was by far the best part of the experience. For someone who isn't normally an adventurous eater, I loved the tapas selection. Only complaint is that cocktails were expensive -- will be back!

We were sat in the side room with only 3 other tables so didn’t get to experience the full restaurant. It’s was freezing in there.

We really enjoyed the food. We were seated on the "indoor patio" area, and in spire of a little floor heater, it was still a bit chilly. Guy, I don't have to tell you that if you keep your woman happy and comfortable, life is good!
My suggestion is to find a way to make that space more comfortable.

This was my first time at La Bodega, and I am obsessed! The food was amazing and the staff was extremely welcoming. We had the dish with the creamed corn, potatoes, and chicken skewers! The corn was SO yummy. Will be back!

As always, the food at La Bodega is phenomenal. We came here because it was a good friend’s birthday and the restaurant went out of the way to make her feel special, including lighting a candle on her dessert! Sophie was our server and did a great job especially in making recommendations for our meal! We will definitely be back.

Our favorite restaurant in Kansas City. Spanish restaurants are pretty rare in the U.S. and it’s even harder to find a really good one. The food here is great, service in great and the prices are very reasonable!

This place is an excellent spot for our yearly Dad/Daughter day feast. This is also the first time we returned to the same place a second year in a row. We had a couple of minor potential bumps in the experience, but the manager graciously solved them both. The website was currently showing specials (wine by the bottle) that we were told by server were not currently offered. The mgr offered to honor them anyway and when my daughter pulled up the menu on her phone using the QR code off their current menu, he came by to check it out so they could get their IT people to fix it. Later we were delivered a 20 year old tawny port that was very obviously oxidized (extremely cloudy and and almost sherry edge. They immediately replaced it and the mgr took the time to come by the table and apologize. Apparently they had close the Kansas restaurant and moved the inventory to this location. No one had caught the oxidized port when stocking. Food was excellent! There are very few dishes I have had here that were not seriously scrumptious. The one that wasn't my personal favorite, was my daughter's! We never feel rushed and explanations of the dishes are good. We look forward to dining her with larger family group as covid issues ease. Thank you to all the people who keep this wonderful place going!

The food was delicious! However, the service wasn’t good at all. We saw our waitress maybe three times. Once to take our drink order, then our food order, then the check. Someone else brought our food out. Our drinks weren’t refilled at all and our waitress was like really short with us if we had questions. But yeah the food is super delicious if you’re okay with poor service.

We had a great time. When we were seated, our table was a little small for 4 people but we asked to have an additional table brought over and we had better spacing to enjoy our tapas.

White Sangria and Scallops were the highlights of dinner, followed very closely by the street corn.

Covid protocols and spacing made for a very comfortable experience

Every time I visit La Bodega, it's a great experience. This was no exception. I had friends in from Seattle, and the server was great at recommending what we should have. Unfortunately, there was a serious delay in drink service, as we received our first couple of tapas before our sangria. Other than that, the night was great. The food was excellent.

The food was delicious, but the service was fairly subpar. We had a reservation, and got seated almost 30 minutes late, which none of the waitstaff apologized for. Then we sat for almost 15 minutes before flagging down a hostess to have someone come over to take a drink order. The waitress didn’t offer to walk us through the menu or give suggestions and when she brought out the various dishes she didn’t bother explaining what they were, which is not what I’ve come to expect when eating tapas. The food was very good, so that made up for the honestly pretty bad service. I would go back if someone else was picking up the tab but not on my own.

I took my daughter's family to La Bodega for Brunch on Sunday, Oct. 24. La Bodega is one of our Kansas City favorites and once again we were not disappointed. Everyone in our party of 5 loved their selections. My grandson eats chicken tenders all over the metro area and said the tenders he ordered were the best of any he has ever eaten. I had the Eggs Benedict and it was perfect. We topped off Brunch with a pitcher of the red Sangria. Yummy!
