The menu is very varied and has good Spanish food for a neighborhood lacking Spanish options. The pear salad was delicious, as were the croquetas. The tortilla was done a bit more than I would like, but that could just be my tastes. The saffron rice could be improved: it wasn't creamy and was lacking flavor compared to the other tapas. Don't bother with dessert: there are few authentic options and the one I did get (tarta de Santiago) was burnt on the bottom and was a bit dry. Great coffee though. Overall it was satisfactory, service was good and the food was somewhat authentic. I will probably go back and try out some other dishes.

What a disappointment; if I had to guess I would say this is a Tapas bar owned and run by non-Spanish - someone who thought it would be trendy and picked up a Tapas recipe book. The food was poor and not authentic. The Sourdough bread was the first giveaway that this would be a bad experience - Sourdough come on when did you last have sourdough servered outside of the USA. The Jambon Serrano tasted good, so did the Manchego Cheese; however the Serrano I believe was domestic Parma ham, and the Manchego was very young. The Albondigas were subpar, so too was the rest of the meal. If you want authentic tapas give this a miss.

I just have to say that I love this place, maybe the interior had some thing to do with it, but I very much enjoyed this restaurant. I just moved here, and it was my 1st time in George town. The service was good, and so was the food.

My friend and I stumbled on Bodega while visiting DC this past weekend. We ate at the bar because we were too impatient to wait for a real table. The service was friendly, the atmosphere was lively and the food was delish. The red sangria was to die for and even after we closed our tab, we couldnt bring ourselves to leave and ordered an additional pitcher of the cava sangria. It was *SO* worth it. I studied in Spain while in college and its the closest thing to traditional Spanish food I've had since back in the states.
