Great food and good service. Our group of 6 came here on a Friday night during the Summerlicious Event. The restaurant has a patio for outdoor dining but we chose to sit inside, which is cozy. Food was served promptly and very good flavours. Most of us ordered steak frites, and it was served medium rare, as requested. We all enjoyed our meals and would return in future.
Had lunch which great -even during Summerlicious. Was not rushed. Excellent variety and tasty.
Great food and excellent deal with Summerlicious. Unfortunately, no one got my message about it being my friend's birthday and hoping to have a candle in her dessert. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and the patio was perfect on a summer night.
Make sure to get the brass flower (cocktail).
The service was a bit slow, but the neighbourhood was quiet. Nice place for a relaxing lunch, but not for business lunches. Cannot be in and out within the hour.
Delicious food but slow service.
Grilled Quail was excellent. My friend ordered steak medium rare, but it ended up well cooked. He was disappointed.
We were the first few customers there, but it took such a long time to bring out every dishes. As it was the summerliious menu, I thought the food should be well prepared. The food was too salty, nothing special. The staff were inexperence, as my friend carelessly spilt some water on the table, she saw it but just did nothing, still put the dish on the table. So we have to wipe the table with our napkin by ourselves. No air conditioning inside. Not recommended.
Bodega offered us a retreat from a busy and hot day of sight-seeing and attending a baseball game. The food was beautifully plated and very high quality. We also enjoyed the Canadian wine—we actually found the vineyard and bought a couple of bottles on our way home. The service was competent and casual—very nice. We ordered the prix fixe, which was a very good value considering we were hungry after a long day. The only reason I didn't give the food five stars is that it wasn't super high end, but everything was very good and hit the spot.
Another terrific dining experience at this downtown gem. We all had different appetizers and mains. We enjoyed every dish and the wine selection complemented the cuisine.
Excellent food . Nice atmosphere. We came in at happy hour and were in time to get the special prices for wine . However we were glad we took a closer look at the check as the bill showed the regular prices. We told our server and he quickly had it corrected. The restaurant is very good however what would make it great would be that they paid attention to how they prepare the bills so that the patrons do not have to go through the procedure to ask for corrections.
Really REALLY good meal. Server was very nice gentleman. Yummy duck.
Friendly service and very good food for the money.
Everyone was happy with their dinner! We thought about sitting outside, but the pollen was a bit much and so the host encouraged us to sit at a very nice round table seating 6. La Bodega was able to handle all of the different food needs for our three couples. We started sharing a bottle of Cava and had the wonderful bread while we looked at the menu. I think that we ordered and shared each item on the appetizer menu. We ordered a few bottles of red..starting with a zinfandel. We had entrees ranging from duck confit to 'lamb burgers'. We had a dinner with good friends! BTW, we parked at the Green P on McCaul Street and easily walked the two blocks.
Great dinner and drinks with friends on the lovely patio!
Very slow service between the appetizers and the main entries although we all had taken the table d'hote.
Was changed twice: table d'hôte + main dish
Nice spot in one of my fave neighbourhoods. Good food, good service and it's a funky chic kind of place that reminds me of a bar in a Sydney Greenstreet movie
If this restaurant is billed as classic French, it is suffering from an identity crisis as there is no hint of French in the ambiance or the food. The décor is worn, tired and tavern like. The staff, unwelcoming. The service, slow and unprofessional. The food, passable but not memorable. A disappointment for anyone who remembers what the Bodega once was.
Service was friendly but slow, although it was not busy. Food was very good, location and patio very nice.
Dishes matched menu descriptions accurately. Well prepared and satisfying.
