Tuesday 5 pm, plenty of seating, mostly full by 6. Upon entering we were pleased by the warmth of a friendly bistro with old brick walls, the right amount of Spanish decor and a uniquely stylish bar area. Our server was very kind and prompt. Sangria, both red and white, is a house specialty, having several small fresh orange, lime,... More

Despite a very busy night Bodega delivered a daily special of scallops and risotto. Our table also shared an artichoke and cheese small plate. Scallops were perfectly cooked and the risotto very creamy. Love the small plates!

My family was going to a hockey game at the Scope so we wanted to have dinner first. We selected The Bodega due to their menu. We were able to get a table for 5 with no problem except.... We each ordered 2 drinks and 2 Tapas to share. The table wasn't big enough for all the plates. Luckily there... More

A friendly welcome and informative conversation about the wine of the month, which was delicious. We had a selection of small plates which were wholesome and tasty. A good balance of fish, meat and vegetables. Service was timed perfectly for us to attend the show at the neighboring hall.

Important note: you have to call for reservations otherwise you may not get in at the time you want. It is a small place and does get crowded very quickly. The dishes are spanish and delicious.

This place is a nice little place downtown in Norfolk, VA. I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Unfortunately it lacks where it matters most; service and food. The server was handsome and police, but didn't keep up well with our table the entire evening. Drink glasses were constantly empty. Our food was brought out at staggered times. I was eating my...

I apologize for your experience. We sell a lot of steaks and don't generally have any complaints .In any case we definitely were not on our game the particular night you were there. Tapas comes out when the kitchen gets it ready , not in order. This should have been explained to you. We strive to do better everyday but... More

Only two people, but they mixed up the order. Sausage in both tapas and an entree were overcooked and hard. Crab cakes just over the line from browned to burned. Perhaps the chefs understudy was on that night. Not worth the money. There was a loud, intrusive, tipsy woman at the bar whom the establishment did nothing to quiet.

This is one of my favorite tapas restaurants. The atmosphere is cozy. The service is great. Wait staff makes good recommendations. The food is delicious and the drinks are generous.

I recently met a friend downtown for a bite to eat and decided tapas would be a fun way to go. It was a Tuesday so although the restaurant was steady, it was never crowded or loud.
