We will be back for the pulled pork tapas. It was incredible!
Never had tapas so that was a great experience. The setting and service was great. I recommend reserving a table because it was fairly pack.
I can't believe we waited so long to try this restaurant. It was an absolute wonderful evening. For two people, I recommend four to five different tapas to share. We had five because we were hungry. Excellent wine selection and don't forget to try the Spanish coffee for dessert. Quite a show!
Excellent dining experience with our out of town guests.
Eh everything was just okay. Nothing special or Spanish about it actually. If you put basil on a piece of bread and add tomatoes you change a classic Spanish pan con tomate into a bruschetta. Spaniards don’t use basil. A few shaved slivers of jamon Iberico atop cold bread does not constitute a plate of jamon as the menu describes. Braised short ribs were tough, chewy and stringy. And the calamari a la Plancha should be cooked on a skillet. Our came out looking like steamed bits. We were hoping to find our tapa joint, but sadly disappointed. Also check your bill—servers tried to ring up more expensive glasses of wine we didn’t order in place of the ones we did order. Oh and the dates—rock hard, cold centers, and that’s not
Pancetta wrapped around them - it’s just bacon. When we asked, Our server said “what’s the difference?”
Always an amazing place to eat. Wonderful service, great food!
This was supposed to be a great Valentines day dinner date. We arrived when the reservation was set for at 8:30 PM. They had overbooked. Couldn’t even get to the bar for a cocktail. We were not seated until 9pm. They did however put us in a very nice separate room. Where it was quiet. My girlfriend ordered soup. She was brought out a salad. Which was a wedge salad. I did not care for it. The server did replace the salad with the soup. The toppers that we ordered were great. It was the papas fridas. I was a little disappointed that they had such a limited menu as far as tapas goes. The entrées were great. I had the lamb and my girlfriend the steak entree. The dessert was sub par for the standard that I am used to at La Bodega. I had the flan she had the vanilla cake. Topped with lemon. The lemon was overpowering on the cake and the flan tasted like it had been sitting out awhile. It also was covered in gold flakes of some sort. Which when I asked the server what it was. He asked the kitchen. No one could come up with an answer for me. Which I did not care for. For the two of us with tax and one cocktail apiece plus tip it was $178.00. The meal itself was $139 with tax. La Bodega Is my favorite restaurant in Kansas City. However that was the first time my girlfriend had the opportunity to go to the establishment. She was not impressed. Nor was I. It’s a shame that they failed on such a crucial evening. That being said. I will definitely go back. They are generally amazing. I would definitely recommend them to all friends and family.
One of our favorite places! Always enjoyable time.
We took part in the Valentine’s Day prix fixe meal and had a great experience! The menu was delicious.
Fantastic food...made my Valentine's dinner memorable.
At La Bodega, every bite is an explosion of flavor! Amazing!
I did not understand why most people were so loud in there. We couldn't even hear our own conversation while sitting there. Tables were also too close together, thus creating a very loud environment.
La Bodega's -KCMO location has been one of our favorite restaurants since it opened many years ago. We love the tapas and sangria and the raspberry churros. We also love the energy of this restaurant. Can't say enough great things about La Bodega's!
Staff was fantastic, fun & friendly. Food was AMAZING. Sangria...YUM! We had a party of 7 & had to sit next to the kitchen which made it extremely noisy & the TV was right by our heads. We even had reservations several days in advance. Still one of my faves in KC.
Excellent food, drink and ambiance. I always enjoy the tapas and the social dining aspect of this restaurant.
