    We were greeted by the owner, who was friendly and welcoming. Once we got to the table, we were greeted by our server, who was very friendly and knowledgeable. She recommended a few dishes, which were delicious and closed out the meal with the chocolate mousse dessert and espresso. Every dish we tried was amazing and got better with each bite. I definitely recommend this restaurant and will be back soon.

    This is an absolute hidden gem in the Triangle. A boutique restaurant that will rival any in the Triangle for atmosphere, cuisine and service. The owner is from France, so the culinary experience is definitely held to a higher standard here. Very intimate setting with a tapas menu. We will definitely be regulars here going forward. 10 plus stars!

    This was our first time at this restaurant. We had an absolutely fabulous evening! The tapas menu was quite inventive and varied. I ordered the salad saison and the tuna. The salad was very good and the tuna was exceptional in taste and preparation. My husband had the empanada and the lamb meatballs. Both dishes were also excellent. There is quite an extensive wine list and a great variety of rum. We sampled from both! Our server was top notch...happy and attentive to us. This is a little gem of a place in downtown Wake Forest. We will return!

    Last night was my third time at Bodega and it didn’t disappoint. I was there with a good friend in need of a nice dinner and good conversation. Bodega was the perfect place! The service and ambiance is just outstanding. The food is wonderful, we had the beed empanada, gnocchi, crab dip and the arancini. They were all carefully prepared and presented, and delicious. This place is a real gem in the charming downtown of Wake Forest. Highly recommended!

    Delicious Delicious Delicious. Absolutely loved the lamb meatballs and broccoli. The desserts including pecan pear pie, date cake and the creme brûlée were superb. Also an exceptional selection of wine, rum, tequila and cocktails. Surely will be returning and a pleasure to dine somewhere new to our crowd.

    Big prices for tiny portions, with unremarkable taste! Also, if the description touts golden/red beets and cranberries, I'd expect more than two miniscule pieces. Even my expensive cocktail was "minimized" with a glass packed to the rim with ice! There couldn't have been room for more than 3 ounces of liquid and I know there wasn't an ounce of Tequila in it. Otherwise, I would have tasted it! We won't be back, nor will we recommend the place to friends, family, or clients.

    In general, there is a lack of balance to the flavors. The serrano ham, for example, had so many accoutrements on it that the ham was largely drowned out. The ratatouille with burrata was flavorful but the burrata was so cold that it was hard to taste or spread on the crostini. Overall, the food is acceptable but not exceptional. I'd recommend Madre in Raleigh or Catalan in Cary.

    All was tasty, but nothing was hot just lukewarm or cool. The lamb meatballs especially. The flavors complemented the selections. We had burratatouili veggies were perfect with cheese. Foie gras crème brûlée creamy and light a great take on both ingredients. Shrimp were the best but on lukewarm side. Tune plate just perfect, great tuna. Apple cake was so so. Definitely worth going back to try more!

    Charming location with a great menu, but unfortunately we felt very rushed. I understood when we made our reservation for 8 on a Wednesday that last tables were sat at 8:30 - but I did not realize that also meant the kitchen closed at 8:30. It's a balancing act for sure to keep the staff on hand later during a quiet weeknight, but I would have much preferred to have been forewarned when making a reservation for my anniversary dinner to come earlier. It also didn't help that we had to wait nearly ten minutes at the entrance before finally having someone come sit us. Food was great and the service outside of being rushed was nothing to complain about. Will be back for sure - just at an earlier hour.

    We came here on NYE to celebrate my husband's birthday and it was our first visit. The service was wonderful and it was a fun experience to try several different things on the menu. I love that they have a dedicated gluten free menu since I am often limited to just a few things on menus. The server was knowledgeable and made a point to check back in with us throughout our dinner. The atmosphere is cozy - the restaurant is small and the tables are close together so this is not a place to have a private conversation but it would still make a great date night spot. We enjoyed everything we had minus the surf and turf entree. Unfortunately, it came out cold and eating filet and mashed potatoes cold is not enjoyable. The rest of the food was perfectly cooked and wonderful, so we will be back again.

    We did dine early in the evening so the noise level was quiet, low buzz by the time we left. NOW on to the food! Absolutely FAB! So many options for small plates and a special small plate for NYE. My spouse stuck to his very favorite (in English LOL) French onion soup and I had the Burrata with Ragout. I shared mine with my spouse and he agreed it was lovely (and HUGE serving). We also enjoyed a special cocktail delivered by Serge himself . . what a special treat to have such a lovely greeting to start our NYE Celebration! Dinner was also exceptional . . husband enjoyed the salmon from the regular menu and dug right in. I went to the special offering Veal Chop with sautéed garlic spinach and roasted potatoes. Again I shared with my spouse . . and it was a huge chop so plenty to share and SO delicious and tender! We did skip dessert but seated nearby were a lovely couple that ohhed and awed over the Espresso Mousse and the Pear and Pecan Pie. If only we weren't so sated by our meal!

    Everything was excellent but it was so hard to have conversations because the restaurant was full and it was so loud (understandable because the food is excellent and they are booked as a result!) Better acoustics would be the ONLY thing I’d suggest. Loved it and will be back!

    It was a quick date night thought and we are so glad we chose Bodega! Perfect for us with delicious small plates and good wine menu. The chocolate martini was my favorite way to end the meal and the spicy margarita was my husband’s favorite to start the meal!
