Excellent Experieince All Around

I took my wife there for a special evening. I have to admit I was a bit nervous about the French menu. We usually prefer experimenting, and the idea of an evening of traditional (read: stuffy) French cuisine had me wondering. I shouldn't have worried. My wife had a wonderful pairing menu, and I opted to pick and choose from the main menu. Everything food wise was wonderful. The flat iron steak was out of this world, done exactly as I had requested it. The wine selection was superb, and I even managed to find a Chilean wine I had 5 years ago and forgot. The manager brought out the bottle for me to confirm the vintage after I told him the story with no coaxing from me. The staff was polite, happy and attentive. We were served by three people over the course of a 3 hour evening, all them in great spirits and knowledgeable of the menu and cellar. The atmosphere was wonderful. The front room is small, seating about 35 people in th living room of an old Toronto estate house. The conversation was alway audible if you listened, but easy to tune out with your own. Laughter carries across the room. We will be going back.

Great restaurant, perfect spot for a date. Went there on a whim a year or 2 ago, and ended up having one of my favourite dining experiences. We sat on te patio, which was really nice. summerlicios was going on, but we didnt order from the licious menu. One of the best bouillabaisse i have ever had. My girlfriend love the flat iron steak... Had a bottle of wine in a bucket of ice. the server was GREAT, probably the best service i have ever had. The patio is a must

Why can't you come up with something exciting...

Why can't you come up with something exciting! The menu is sooooo standard. I understand that classic dishes have a spot on any ethnically-based menu, but a little creativity is what will get return customers. great atmosphere and location.

A colleague and I went there for lunch in our break....it took them 2 hours to bring out a fixed price menu. I ordered the lamb burger and it was completely raw, they brought me back a new one but still made me pay for the burger. The servers did not seem to communicate to one another and it felt disjointed.

We've been to Bodega many times and have always been impressed with the food and the service. This time was an exception. In spite of this being a Tuesday night, the restaurant was fairly full. Perhaps the slow service and the overdone and crusty Duck Confit were due to an inability to handle so many diners? I'll certainly give Bodega another try and hope that they aren't as crowded.

It was a lovely evening with friends. The food was delicious - lamb shank, chicken supreme, risotto and steelhead trout. Everyone was happy with their meal - nicely presented and good portion sizes. Fresh, warm bread was a treat. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. We commented on the coziness of the restaurant and the fact that we could talk without competing over loud music. We'll definitely return!

The restaurant atmosphere was cozy and warm, the service was good and the food was amazing! I had the chicken and a bite of my son’s burger and both were incredible! We will be back next time we visit Toronto.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Winterlicious event at Bodega. Service was impeccable and the food was perfect. I chose scallops / risotto /creme brulee, and my daughter had the salad / duck / flourless chocolate cake (she shared with me - lovely!). Would definitely recommend and will return !

Atmosphere was somewhat loud as tables were too close together. Service was slow and unenthusiastic. Food was mediocre at best. I would not recommend this restaurant.

I went to Bodega with my family for winterlicious. For a 6:30 pm dinner on the weekend, we were told that they were out of most of the drink options that we were interested in. For dessert, we were also given a different list of options than what was supposed to be on the fixed price menu without an explanation. This was fine, except that the waiter then proceeded to try to place the dish that we thought was unavailable on our table. If you're going to change the menu, at least be consistent with what you're offering!

Host was very courteous and helpful; found us a table before our reservation time despite a busy night. Atmosphere was somewhere between 'warm & cozy' and 'loud & casual'. Food presentation was excellent. Great combinations and flavors. Particularly liked the sauces. The scallops were perfect. Duck breast was inconsistent - I received rare, partner received medium/medium-rare. Server was lacking in courtesy; slow to serve. Brought the wrong desserts, but was quick to correct it. Overall, would come back again on a less busy day to try other specialties.

Visited Bodega for Winterlicious and the food and service were great! The atmosphere was cozy, and comfortable. The scallops were perfectly cooked, and the duck was delicious. Great way to try new restaurants and I’ll be back. Definitely worth trying if you haven’t been there yet!

Bodega’s large corner patio, and three-course prix fixe menus (Lunch $23, Dinner $35), make dining alfresco a breeze. French, Spanish, and Mediterranean inspired dishes offer diners a variety of options. The pre-fixe lunch menu alone is superb
