Although they have a diverse tapas menu (good selection of seafood + land food + vegetarian), the number of available items to order is not very wide. Also, the choices have not changed much, if at all, over the past year. The quality of the food is "ok". Not bad but not very memorable either. I think this restaurant has a lot of potential; they just need to step it up on the flavor profiles and switch it up on the menu more often. This will bring us back as frequent customers.

The food was great, as usual, we shared 4 tapas and the steak entree. The steak was cooked perfectly and all 4 tapas were delicious.

The tapas was all excellent. The dessert was okay - in particular the Lumpy's ice cream that came with the apple/date/fig cake was not good (seemed like it had freezer burn). For the first time ever I would say the service was lacking (waitress forgot one of our dishes and in general wasn't attentive - was much more attentive to the table next to us). Still great food just not the best night out of the 7 or 8 times we have been

The food is excellent with great menu choices. The service was mediocre. The server had to be prompted to take our food order. One of the three dishes was delivered way later than the first two.

Family night out, great meal, loads of variety in plate selection, favorites were shrimp, beef empanada, Peruvian chicken and cheeseboard. Lovely crème brûlée and apple fig tart. The house Sangria was out of this world, both red and white. Attentive and friendly staff.

We had a great anniversary dinner at Bodega. It was our first time here and we were looking forward to the warm ambiance of the restaurant. Unfortunately, even though we made reservations for 7:30pm, there was not a table available for us and were given the choice of waiting or eating outside. We chose outside. We then waited a while to get our drink order taken and ordered a bottle of wine and a few items to get started with. Our food came out but the wine did not. They couldn't find the bottle. We then gave them two more choices and got our last choice--it was still good (just wanted to have a Spanish red versus an Italian red while eating our tapas). The food was really good except for two dishes--we tried almost the entire small plate menu. Dessert was a bit boring after such a creative menu yet it was still yummy. Overall, we had a great meal and will be back.

Our experience was wonderful. The food, drink and service was so personable. The variety of tapas, especially the gnocchi, was delicious.
The chef/owner and the bartender were most helpful.

Small portions. Have been to other tapas restaurants in the area and the portions for sharing are much better.

Most of the dishes had heavy sauces on them. French onion soup too sweet.

Waitress was Very attentive & friendly.

Most likely will not return

Wonderful, creative menu, delicious tapas, drinks, and larger plates. My husband and I enjoyed and highly recommend: Peruvian chicken, Shrimp, Rigatoni Mezze w/wild boar bolognese, Birria Short Rib, Orchard Sangria and chocolate mousse.

We also enjoyed the NC BBQ Rillette which had a nice smoky flavor. The texture was unexpected and reminded us of a pate or spreadable dip.

The Orchard Sangria was THE BEST sangria I have ever had. Soooo good!!

I highly recommend Bodega for the delicious, unique food and the friendly, efficient chef and staff. Our tapas and meal were paced and arrived perfectly timed and hot.

If reaching for a con, it would be the noise level inside. My husband and I had a difficult time holding a conversation as there isn't much within the simple and lovely decor to absorb sound. Noise not due to loud, obnoxious music or anything. In fact, we could barely hear the soft music playing over their speakers. Just your normal restaurant activity and conversations of fellow diners.

Go to Bodega and consider dining outside while the weather is still warm. Enjoy the delicious food and drinks. You won't be disappointed!
