I had a group of friends join me at Bodegas because my wife and I really enjoyed it in the past. I regretted taking them there after 15 minutes. There was only one waitress and it took her 45 minutes to bring our drinks. And that's only because I came and got her. I told her we wanted to cancel the order and she said the drinks were ready. She then proceeded to tell me that she can bring them immediately. Then why did we have to wait so long if they were ready? It's water for crying out loud! Half of the alcohol we ordered came from a can. There were maybe 20 people in there and only one group was eating. They were a larger table and they got there after we did. Super annoying. Wish I had left. I felt very disrespected and embarrassed for bringing my guests there. It's really disappointing because in the past we really enjoyed the place.
We went with visitors from Germany before the opera. Out table was waiting for us. The server came immediately and was helpful and attentive throughout. Out guest looked at the menu online and wanted the small plates- particularly the fried calamari. That wasn't available so they had the ceviche which they really enjoyed. I had the tuna rare and served just right. The roasted beet salad was tasty. It the greens were too big to be mesclun and a little tough. All in all it was a pleasant meal with good food and excellent service.
We brought my wife for tapas on her birthday and are glad we tried it. This is a very neat place with an interesting and really classy interior. Our server was really helpful and enthusiastic, no issues there. The food was pretty good, cannot say the most flavorful, some of the tapas even being a bit bland. But bad again, just a bit bland although the lettuce wraps were awesome. A little bummed no military discount because tapas is not cheap but not the end of the world. We would not run right back out from Hampton but would give it a second shot if nearby.
Great little eatery in central downtown Norfolk. Excellent variety of tapas small plates as well as Southern European-style dishes. Great place to eat before going to the nearby theater and show locations.
A little quaint dining experience in the heart of downtown Norfolk. Good food, great drinks, and the smoked Ahi Tuni was amazing!!!
First time to eat there. We were in town visiting our son. He had Ben there before and recommended this place. Enjoyed it very much and will return.
Table service was poor and food extremely over cook for seafood.
Menu was slightly different than past visits. Food was good but preferred the previous menu items.
Good place to eat or have drinks before going to Chrysler Hall or the Scope
Great atmosphere for a date . Upscale design with out going to classy. The food was delicious, leaving us wanting to come back to try more selections on the menu
