Bodega Spanish Tapas & Lounge
Dear Bodega Managment
The night of 10/14/19 i made a reservation for 3 people at 7:30 under my name Anita Gjikolli through open table. Upon arriving at the location we were seated at the back dinning room with noone else but us in the whole room, giving us the impression that making a reservation at your restaurant doesnt mean anything. We were a little disappointed but we didnt make a deal about it since we were there about the food more than the ambiance but thats the first red flag, after that we were not greated for at least 10 minutes and i have to say it was another red flag but we were still to excited to try your restaurant. Upon having a server whose name was Daniel and he was obliviously drunk and not able to provide no type of service we told him we want to do the ultimate spanish experience and his first answer was; you know the whole table gotta do it right??! Iam personally a bartender and my husband is a bartender and my other friend is a manager of a restaurant and ive never felt disrespected that way. Past that he said we can have one tapa for person each and we can only put order for another one after we are all done eating whats in the table( meaning we are having two bites of food every 15 minutes). Then i asked for the price of the seafood pella and he said : what u mean the price it there and I answered market price is not a number and he is like ohh its 65. Anyways we are getting most of the stuff we are ordering, emphasis on MOST not all and then he forgot i ordered a second glass of wine and charged me for a third because he forgot I ordered twice but never got my second glass. I have to say the food quality was very good and kinda saved the night but all of us felt like we were very unwelcomed there and we took our celebration somewhere else in the ene because obviously Daniel was not up for giving a decent service. We only tipped him because we work in the industry. Needless to say we were disappointed and i dont think we will come back.
The food is okay, and the flamingo dance is nice but loud. I think the food is a bit overpriced compared to the quality. Welcome to have a try if you are roaming around Georgetown.
We sat on the patio and enjoyed happy hour prices and food until 7:00, and also ordered from the regular menu after 7:00. Our server was attentive and helpful, and the food was great
The waiter wasn’t able when we need some service or advice
Great deals. The Ultimate Spanish Experience is totally worth the price! The food is delicious and glad we found the place. Definitely will return!
Great food and fast service.
Birthday celebration was perfect
The front of the house was accommodating and did help celebrate my husband’s birthday. We are local but first time dining here. I was expecting a bit more. Wait staff was just so so. Our waiter appeared annoyed and hurried. Never brought us dessert menus and we had to ask again to a different waiter. They brought my husband his birthday dessert before we could even order ours! The meal was ok but paella was disappointing. Don’t think we will return. Very casual dining and not a special occasion place.
It was AWESOME
Thoroughly enjoy the food, guitarist and flamenco dancer.
Not a place for quiet conversation, but very lively and satisfying overall. The food was pretty good, although not as good as it has been on previous visits. Service is brisk, yet friendly.
I only went for happy hour, so my review is a little skewed. The happy hour prices are right, especially for the drinks. The cocktails are delicious! And $5 per food item on a HH menu is about average, but their portion sizes were quite small. I paid $5 for five tiny shrimp; that's $1 per shrimp! I also ordered the bacon-wrapped dates (would prefer them if they weren't fried) and the chicken croquettes (the chicken is pureed, so that was gross), and those came in sets of 4, so that's more than $1 per piece. The calamari was the only food item I ordered that was actually worth $5 to me.
I tried the $38 unlimited dinner, which I think was well worth the money. Waiter was very nice and knew the menu well. Food was pretty good. The only downside was that the restaurant was basically empty and the food took a while to come out.
El camarero nos hizo pedir cientos de tapas y nos sobraron más de la mitad y claro el clavadón de la cuenta fue terrible 😤😱
Great atmosphere. Friendly staff, fast service and delicious food!
Very pleasant first-time experience! Tons of small plates to try. Go for the garlic shrimp and steak. Nice little patio for dining al fresco. Small but good wine selection.
The food is always as expected ... delicious! Excellent wait staff and ambiance. Always a wonderful time!
Awesome seating on back patio,
Absolutely amazing. Went in for brunch and had the best time! Live music, excellent food, and great service. Can’t wait to go back!
Great tapas. Always good service!
When with my girlfriend for dinner, was between $40-45 each including a glass of sangria. Order about 2 tapas each, a cheese board and the free bread. The mussels were really great and the broth was fab!
1. The air conditioning did not work or they did not have any.
2. The food was below average. The meatballs were like frozen and heated in a microwave.
3. The service was ok.
4. Overall terrible experience.
Matt is the best bartenders! Seriously the guy is simply brilliant!
Food was good, but basic. Nothing extraordinary
Enjoyed the fun slightly noisy vibe of Bodega. Bar tender made us feel welcome with great sense of humour and tasty cocktails. Food was delicious. Gambas my favourite. Make sure to get plenty of bread to soak up the sauce it’s in.
Sangria was delicious! I order the grilled octopus and was excellent!
This was my second time visiting. I had a wonderful brunch experience last summer and decided to try it out again for dinner. Although the food was just as fantastic, our service was TERRIBLE! We waited over 12 minutes to be greeted by our server. We didn’t see him again after we placed our food order until 10 minutes before we were ready to leave. We were even poured olive oil for our bread, which he never brought until that last 10 minutes we were there, once we were already DONE with our meal. Food, excellent. Service, awful.
Great food and wine!
An amazing meal! Looking forward to coming back soon!
We had small plates and sangria. All dishes were great but hot plates were only warm when they arrived. Noise level was kind of high for conversation but not fair to call it noise. There was an excellent Spanish guitar player and dancer . Overall a very special place
We always enjoy our dining experiences at Bodega. Love the wines by the glass, the quality and variety of the tapas, and the fun wait staff.
Staff are not professional at all
Bodega Spanish Tapas & Lounge is a beautiful restaurant. Excellent food and customer service
Excellent. Food hot and sangria well made.
Reunion.. met expectations
The food and service were very good, and the atmosphere was pleasant and not too loud.
The food is always great here. The back Matador room is neat as well.
Service was good, each tapas portion is quite large start with two, order more if you need to. Red sangria is very tasty. The was a flamenco dancer and guitarist that provided good entertainment. Don’t know if this was a special for mother’s day, as we had been there before and there wasn’t any entertainment.
Very nice Mother’s Day brunch. Authentic tapas — we’ve been to Spain twice in the last year and Bodega measures up quite well. Initial service was a bit slow but improved throughout the meal.
