"Tapas" - 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.

It was good except we couldn’t find our waiter a couple of times, but someone else took care of us each time.

La Bodega never disappoints. Try out their happy hour specials to enjoy their vast tapas menu.

Salad greens were unusual, bitter, chewy. I had some kind of a rice, vege mash, they identified as Paella. It was not anything close to that dish. No flavors of the sea. No Sofrito, I even paid extra for the shrimps! My lady had salads, mushrooms were pretty good, shrimps were flavorless. The toast with fig jam & goat cheese okay! Serve this in Barcelona, the people would burn you at the stake! Very disappointed, spent over $110. Food alone. Service was good.

Upon arrival we were seated fairly quickly and the staff were pleasant. The atmosphere was nice for a dinner with a group but for two we should have been sat more towards the back, the bar area was very loud. We also were facing the street and the city light was shining very brightly through the window directly in our eyes, we asked if there was a shade to pull down but we're told no there wasn't. All that aside the service was great and the variety of food choices is excellent and authentic Spanish cuisine. We never felt rushed and the staff were very accommodating, precise and speedy with our food and drinks. Overall was a good time and we will go back again.

This review is for restaurant week menu. I had a quite small first course salad that was tasty. The vegetable paella was very good but there was an up charge for meat or fish. Therefore I did not choose that. Other restaurants during restaurant week served great portions and a meat/fish was included. I love La Bodega’s Happy Hour and horsd’oeuvres but was not happy with this particular lunch.

We went for Restaurant Week and everything was good, but would have been happier ordering off the regular menu. FYI - paella takes awhile to cook so it was delivered well after my husband had finished his 3 tapas. They brought his tapas out immediately and wish they would have timed it closer to my paella. He got 3 chicken skewers, 6 shrimp, and a BUNCH of olives - probably better for a larger group. With salad, entree and dessert, more food than we needed, so next time we will just get tapas and maybe a dessert. Their sangria is best in town!

My husband and I were first-time patrons of La Bodega. I have driven by a million times, but wanted to partake for restaurant week for something different. We were so impressed! Super fun menu, excellent service, and delish sangria! The food was top notch and we had a fun time picking out tapas to try. Four thumbs up from us and highly recommended!!

Although we've dined at La Bodega in the past, this was our first time to try their happy hour. Wow! Half price sangria and tapas until 6 p.m.!! We're definitely adding La Bodega to our list of favorite spots for happy hour.

We frequently go here for dinner, and we have not been disappointed. Often see families together sharing plates, including young children. Good for special occasions and weeknights both.
