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.

The atmosphere is great; a nice change to have a meal where you can have a conversation, since there was't loud music to shout over. The restaurant wasn't full at all full, but we had to wait quite some time to get someone to give us a wine list. The food was good, but we waited about 45 minutes to get it.

Attendees were international regulators who were impressed with the restaurant. They raved about ambience, service and food. This is the second time we have booked a large group at this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Owner and staff were easy to deal with and very accommodating. Will definitely use them again.

The service was excellent! The waiter was very patient in answering questions for our group and always came to fill our water promptly. The only downside was that they didn't have lattes or foie gras available at the time; however, they were kind enough to give us two complimentary desserts to make up for it. I recommend the beef tenderloin!

The food was okay, but the service was very disappointing. We had to wait several minutes for someone to greet us, ask for the menu when it was obvious we had been forgotten, and wait ages to get our order in, wait for each course to arrive, and to finally pay. Wait staff were present but not attentive to the pace of the meal at all - and not one asked how we were doing! Would not recommend.

This was a very pleasant way to enjoy lunch, given we were late for reservation, hostess accommodated us. We we able to feast and then make our way to the AGO. We experienced a delicious Summerlicious menu. The crab cakes were perfect and the main course as well. We will be back and recommend this place to family and friends.

We were there for Summerlicious. It was a lovely evening so we asked to be seated on the patio. The staff were very accomodating. They suggested we take a seat inside until an outdoor table became available. The menu choices for Summerlicious could not have been more varied. There were options for everyone. Everything we chose was delicious. We would be happy to return another time to try their regular menu.

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
