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

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

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

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

          2. 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.

            1. if you like french cuisine, you'll enjoy it

              1. 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.

                1. 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.
