The gin drink menu was incredible! Great service and Corey was awesome. Made our evening enjoyable.
Excellent tapas and atmosphere
Delicious! Check out their amazing happy hour prices.
La Bodega is a Kansas City find! My friend and I decided to go for Sunday brunch and ended up here. I am soooooooo glad we did! Our waitress was fabulous...she suggested a gin and lavender drink as well as the white sangria; both were exceptional. And did I mention they had bottomless mimosas! What the what?! The food? TO...DIE...FOR! Everything we ordered was scrumptious. There is not one bad thing to say about La Bodega...it was utterly enjoyable!
Noise level choice was “energetic” which in this case meant you couldn’t even hear the person across from you. Way too noisy. But still had a good time!
Great place to meet with friends and enjoy fun and creative food. Wait staff is always friendly and gracious
La Bodega can be terribly noisy if you choose to sit inside, which we did because their air conditioning was just too enticing on a 93 degree, super muggy night. Alas, it was particularly hard for any of us to be heard by each other and by our very capable waiter. We do try to make it to La Bodega each year during our annual work project in Kansas City, and while it was on the whole pretty good, our recollection of our meal last year suggest this year the tapas can be a little hit and miss. They do make a very good and authentic Spanish tortilla, but the Patatas Bravas left us wanting a much bolder and thicker sauce, which crispier potatoes. The pincho de pollo skewers were wonderful, but the croquetas seemed rather gritty. They do have a pretty distinguished wine list, but I am far to partial to my own Sangria recipe to be on board with theirs. We will come back again. As historians of Spain, we only know of Bodega as Kansas City's source for Spanish food.
We are vegetarian so that limited what we ate, but we were pretty underwhelmed by this tapas place. Patatas Bravas is a staple of tapas cuisine but it, like most of our other dishes, lacked flavor or character. Just very meh.
The food is delicious and the service is outstanding. La Bodega has a wine and food menu that can satisfy everyone's appetite. Our waiter was very helpful in selecting our food. Can't wait to go back!
Our waiter was so nice! We had a group a friends with all different tastes in food and we were all able to find something we liked and all tried something new.
Tapas were great. Fun restaurant. Dessert was wonderful.
This was our first time to LaBodago and we were very pleased with our service,food choices, and drink selection. The small tapa plates were larger than expected and after ordering a salad and three small plates, we needed a take home box. Our waitress was delightful and we enjoyed our conversation.
Excellent food and service as always. Great happy hour deals!
Always a great option. Try something new each time but save room for the papas fritas!
Always a lovely experience! Good staff and good food! Unbeatable happy hour!
Fun was had by one and all
Staff was friendly. Food took a while to come out. Most everything was delicious. We will keep coming back.
We had the best server ever. Such great food, drinks, ambience! It was really loud, but that was ok. Definitely should visit here while in KC!
A group of six for dinner- a couple birthdays and an anniversary. We had a great time- the chorizo dates were our favorite order. Sangrias and gin and tonics were delicious! One of our favorite places in the city!
I love La Bodega! Their food is always excellent and they have the best sangria in the city. On top of that, they gave my friend a birthday dessert! Their patio is one of my favorites in the city. I’m a huge fan!
Nick was awesome! We got the sangria, kale/quinoa salad, & tapas. Everything was delicious and it was during happy hour so it was half off!
You can't find a better Happy Hour / Date Night / Friend Dinner (the list goes on) than La Bodega downtown. My wife and I always enjoy the experience, the pitcher(s) of red sangria, and we love that there are options for all diners. We don't eat meat or dairy and were still able to select several options from the Happy Hour menu. The service is always top notch and we enjoy the friendly team at La Bodega.
We went to dinner for our anniversary. All the staff stopped by to congratulate us and really made us feel special. It was different, fun and the food was delicious!
Really enjoyed the tapas and ambiance of this location. Our server new her stuff and made some excellent recommendations. What stopped me from giving it all 5 stars was first the paella we ordered was very dry. The rice was crunchy instead of soft and the overall flavor was very bland if it weren’t for the tapas the rating would have been much lower. The other thing is the price, while the tapas were good they weren’t that good and the paella we’ll definitely not like anything I’ve had before and I’ve had the real thing in Spain.
Everything was great from service to the food. Very impressive wine list! Our server was amazing and attentive. She was able to recommend delicious options that did not disappoint.
Always delicious and great service! Either the red or the white sangria is a must and the mussels are a nice touch!
One of my favorite restaurants! La Bodega offers many uniquely flavored foods and a great ambiance. It's a great place for special occasions, but also just stopping for a quick weekend brunch is wonderful as well.
Love La Bodega!!! Always a delicious meal and stupendous service.
But Open Table sent me a “no show” inquiry, then a request for a review...which certainly doesn’t make sense!
great selection of beautifully prepared dishes. Very reasonable prices. Such fun to mix and match small plates. Our party all enjoyed the meal
Mother’s Day brunch
Missed the “make your own” Bloody Mary bar
This is our second time at La Bodega in as many months. The food is excellent. There are many tapas dishes to choose from. The chicken paella is a must - PAELLA VALENCIANA. Make sure to order a pitcher of Sangria. Also try the DATILES CON JAMÓN Y CHORIZO. Finish it all off with the Spanish Coffee made with 151 proof rum.
The perfect girl's night location! The service was fabulous and the food is always amazing.
We had a splendid lunch and perfect service from Fabi. Every bite (and sip) was delicious, and Fabi's suggestion to round out our ordering was spot on. Thanks for another wonderful experience!!!
Wonderful as always!
The Sangria was too sweet. The wine in the Sangria was too light. The jar for the Sangria should be glass.
Also the prices were $2 too high for the type of food.
Went on Sunday for a brunch with very limited items to chose from the menu.
Was expecting to have the Paella at lunch on Sunday but needed to wait after 2:00 PM - Going to a Spanish restaurant and not be able to order Paella is not good.
Waited forever once we were seated for water and bread. Our steak was over cooked and the scallops were less than satisfying. The sangria was delicious. The wait staff seemed preoccupied with other tables.
I always like La Bodega, but had one dish this time that was NOT good. (They took it off the bill) It was the short ribs. I would not recommend that.
Always the best! Tequila cocktail just right. Best steak in town. The bread! The sangria! The sidewalk!
The ambiance is fun and cozy, the service was friendly and attentive and the food is always a treat. Our group of 14 was seated in an outdoor alcove that was an intimate setting and space I didn't know they had. We were there for half-price wine night so got to taste a variety from their wine list. My favorite appetizer is the Papas Fritas con Ajo so after bragging about them to our table, I ordered three of them as soon as we sat down. Sadly them didn't come until over an hour into our meal. The crispy garlicky goodness of my favorite dish was such a disappointment. They must have been sitting out for some time because they were no longer crispy or hot and they went uneaten. Still, I'll go back for more.
