I got the burger. The bun was stale, horrible.
Positive-sangria was really good
Good food and drunk. Collin provided excellent service. Knowledgeable about his wine.
Even though I made a reservation in advance, it took almost 30 minutes for us to get a table. Not only us but all the guests with reservation around us had to wait. Food is pretty good but it's so noisy on weekend night. Recommend to those who don't mind busy places.
Great experience, love the food and setting!
Had a great time, but it was very busy so service was just a tad slow.
Food was unbelievably good!
My husband and I went to La Bodega for his birthday celebration. Kristi was our server, and she was fantastic. But then again, everything was amazing. The cocktails (I'm a sucker for their caipirinhas), the wine, the tapas, the ambience, the rest of the service staff--everything. We really enjoy going there and would suggest it to anyone who wants to try something a bit out of the ordinary.
absolutely amazing food. incredible drinks. and the best service i've had in a long time. 12/10
We will be back for the pulled pork tapas. It was incredible!
This is a great, casual, fun place to enjoy delicious food that you can't find just anywhere. It's fun to order tapas and pass the plates around the table and let everyone taste/share. The food is delicious and you'll wan to order more. We've always had superb service. We've been here for Sunday brunch, Saturday lunch, after work happy hour and are never disappointed.
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.
It was great
Great flavored tapas, full body red wine and energetic ambiance
Great sangria, great tapas! The atmosphere is lively (probably thanks to the sangria) and fun. Enjoyed smoked salmon flatbread and peppers stuffed with ahi tuna, and the paella valenciana - all outstanding. Definitely make a reservation. Our table was ready right when we walked in. Parking around the corner was perfect.
Good food, great service & fun times as always at La Bodgea
Great as always
Great food and variety!
Such a great experience at La Bodega! Delicious food, dessert, and sangria!
My drink was more like a margarita than a mule but the cuisine was great!
Our server, Spence, was overwhelmed, and disappeared frequently. Went to enjoy the extended Restaurant Week, but the chicken ajillo was not up to par. Chicken thighs instead of breasts, and my wife’s meal was delayed due to being overlooked. Her meal was comped, but overall slow service and not worth the wait. This is one of our favorite restaurants, and it was quite disappointing.
It was FABULOUS! The food was WONDERFUL! The company was AMAZING! You can’t beat the happy hour prices on a Saturday afternoon!
My friends first time to dine at LaBodega. He loved the atmosphere, food, and the Spanish coffee!!
This restaurant is a favorite go to-- service is excellent, quality of food is supreme, food overall is consistently delicious! We love it--every time!
We met friends for La Bodega's happy hour because we love half price tapas and sangria. Our server was attentive without being intrusive and the food - as always - was delicious. It's hard to beat La Bodega's happy hour because it's such a great value.
Had an amazing time! Disappointed we still had to wait another 20 minutes from our reservation time to be seated but the rest of the experience was hands down one of the best dining experiences I’ve had to date! Will absolutely be going back!
Great deal especially during restaurant week. Tapas were all great with generous portions (salmon with asparagus, tortilla Espanola, and mushrooms) . Scallops entree would have benefited from a side of rice or vegetable, but the scallops themselves were exquisite. Had plenty to eat with soup, bread and dessert, even without a side for the entree. Servers were prompt and friendly, very good service but not hovering.
I hadn't been to La Bodega for a while; one friend hadn't been in years; and a couple who recently moved to KC, not at all. The place was packed [Happy Hour & Restaurant Week] but we were seated per our reservations. Boisterous crowd made chatting a bit challenging, but the service was wonderful, the food (tapas) diverse and tasty, and the wine was perfect with the meal. It's definitely on our "repeat soon" list.
