Good Vibe and their pizza's are to die for. Great for stopping in to grab a quick drink during the week because it usually isn't that busy

If you want a chill place for a date with sexy food this is it. They have one of the best deep dish pizza's I have had. Their cheese plate is also great for the price. \r
Perfect tinted lighting and friendly staff. Good crowd

I love this wine bar. It is such a fun place to come with friends. Great for parties too. A friend had a birthday party here a while back and it was soooo much fun. There is a great selection of wines from all over along with little plates of food.
I love the modern lounge feel here and it makes you feel so cozy.

Pros: Your choice of any seat in the house

Cons: Staff who acts like they're on their day off

If I could give Bodega less than one star, I would. I'm not really into complaining about places online, but the way we were treated at this place was so appalling, I feel I need to warn other people before they make the mistake of having

Went to Bodega on a Tuesday night with a date and it was a perfect place to meet. The wines are all $8 a glass and there was a great selection. The appitizer menu also offered a good selection and we tried the brushetta which was tasty.

We celebrated my friend's birthday here. It's a great wine bar to meet with your friends after work or celebrate a birthday. They had big tables and a lounge area to accommodate up to 20 people. They only serve wine and beer - great selection for both. The food was great! They had appetizer portions. Try their pizza, its great with their imported beers. The staff was attentive and helpful. The music was on too loud, so be ready to lose your voice at the end of the night. Cool, trendy spot!

So we checked out Bodega on a whim after tiring of the line outside Father's Office. I was pretty skeptical going in, but Bodega is by far more laid-back and less pretentious than even Father's Office. While you may think this is kind of

When I show up with my girlfriend to grab a bite to eat and a few glasses of wine (and yes, at least the pizza was good), please don't ask me to hold a credit card. It makes me feel like I am Cabo. It would also be nice if you did not

I feel like Bodega doesn?t know what type of wine bar it wants to be. At least that?s the impression I got when I went there one Saturday night. There was a DJ playing up-tempo music, but the venue doesn?t have any space for dancing. The

Uninspired wine list. No flights period- forget about flights paired with food or dessert. Truly some of the worst food that I have ever eaten. The only plus is the creative use of the space- nice, contemporary atmosphere.

Went there last night for the first time and really enjoyed it. My boyfriend and I had an awesome waitress, and she let us sample a few of the wines before committing to a bottle (only $20 on Tuesdays!). She was very knowledgeable and

Fantastic wine bar. My favorite wine bar, actually. Great wine selection. Food is pretty good. Ambience is fantastic. Relaxed atmosphere. Great place to meet up with friends before heading to dinner.

I came here a few months ago and I am shocked that not more people have reviewed this place. When I went, it was "good" busy, and it seemed like the locals had already caught on. Anyhow, the decor is quite nice, the menu is very simple

Hung out a few nights at Bodega. Its much more a lounge than a wine bar which is a good thing. Super cool atmoshpere with lots of couches, corners and places to hang. Everything is priced the same so you don't have to worry about what

Been living in Santa Monica for a while and couldn't find a place to go that wasn't either 1) a scruffy dive bar (which I enjoy sometimes), 2) a swanky joint (which I also frequent on occasion), or 3) a anything on the promenade (stay

after trying for a while to figure out where exactly i was allowed to park, i was finely able to figure it out and get inside. they have a nice selection of wine and the atmosphere is fun with its dim lights and red, black and white interior. i particularly liked the red window. the people there were nice although there were a few strange ones. all the employees were helpful.

Lately I have really gotten into wine. I do not really like other alcohols that much. This wine bar has a great atmosphere, plenty of places to sit, and a huge variety of wine. I loved how it was decorated. The crowd there was laid back and just there to talk which is nice because I do not like the bar scene.

Editorial from

Unpretentious and approachable wine list in a lively (loud) atmosphere. Solid bar snacks include flatbread pizzas, hummus and wraps.
