    BOdega is great - you'll have a wonderful time. They're very cool there.

      I've only been once, but found the food and the atmosphere pretty boring. Hasn't warranted a return trip.

        If you're over 40, you'll prolly like it.

            No you won't!
            It's pretty safe all round.

            Bodega is a very cozy and old mansion resto. I have only been there for one brunch and it was absolutely delicious. Fluffy perfect blueberry pancakes, home made hollendaise with a fire roaring behind our table. The decor is not modern and some might consider it "old ladyish". I never got that impression though. Just a cozy warm and quiet atmosphere. My partner went there for dinner and had steak and also loved it. Their price fix looks great and it's on my list.

                I went there for my birthday expecting to have a great dinner but was extremely disappointed. I had been there in the past and had enjoyed some wonderful food and wine but not this time. Both my partner and I could hardly stomach the food. They did not have the items that we requested that were on the menu but offered replacements that were served with canned beans! Never again.

                  I guess a good way of putting it is that it's a nice place to take your parents who are visiting from a small town in Manitoba and want a special night out. The food options are safe and yet "exotic" enough for one to feel they are eating something different. We sat on the patio during a lovely summer evening and the service was very attentive. However, with the gazillion other dining options available, I wouldn't go back.
