Although it is a tapas restaurant it has a great brunch on Saturday and Sunday. It seems to be the place where millennials get together and it is very popular wi the locals. I recommend reservations although walk in is possible I am sure. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Along with the usual breakfast items including cooked... More

My daughter and I ate dinner here before a concert and it was very good. It's a tapas style restaurant where you share small entrees. We chose the Spanakopita, Saganaki, and the mini quesadilla. Alll were very good but my favorite was the Spanakopita which had lots of spinach and cheese filling. The Saganaki was too salty for me but... More

I loved everything we ordered. First the happy hour sangria was good; white, champagne or red. We then ordered numerous dishes and all were excellent; dates,saganaki, beef tenderloin, meatballs,avocado/pear salad. Wine list was very nice and the desserts were all good. I will be back.... Nice outdoor seating.

The tapas themed menu is excellent for trying new dishes and I couldn't have been more in love with my meal. my best friend has been trying to get me to come for months now, raving about this excellent brunch spot for her Sunday mornings and although I went during the week... nonetheless I...

Great tapas in great setting. Atmosphere, ambience, and high quality is how I'd describe my experience. Santiago's Bodega came recommended by a colleague and it did not disappoint! Meant to take more pics but it wouldn't matter as the taste is what it's about. 5 stars hands down!

Noon time- very crowded with one reservation group leaving and another lining up at the door. We got in just before 2nd group left. Normally, you had to lock in a reservation 1 week early. No telling what the future holds, but we(3 people) were seated in 15 minutes just because we timed it to between groups. I suggest you... More

Visited Santiago's twice for work related functions. Their food is so tasty! The lamb chops, charcuterie, and brussel sprouts are always at the top of my list. Be careful if you like your lamb well done as they serve it fairly rare here. Going to check out their brunch next time. I have heard it is awesome.

Why is it that when you tell men you are going to a tapas restaurant they immediately think you are saying topless? Just asking. . . Having been to Cafe Tu Tu Tango many times, I used that as a yardstick to judge this restaurant. Santiago's Bodega - Lots of art on the walls, a bit crowded and dark, but... More

We made reservations a week prior for brunch for a group of 13. We got there and the hostesses were very friendly and nice. They set up our table outside and it was a good spot. I went to the bar first and ordered a few drinks. A few minutes later someone dropped a bunch of glasses and chards of... More

Santiago's Bodega presents a unique tasting experience featuring small plates that hopscotch between decadent (a warm Camembert wedge topped with sauteed garlic, onions, almonds, apricots, chopped dates, bell peppers), refreshing (yellow fin tuna, avocado, mango ceviche), exotic (lamb patties with fresh thyme, sherry, lemon zest) and just plain comfort-food-delicious (Roman meatballs on angel hair, or fried potatoes in a spicy sauce). As nothing costs over $15, there’s no major commitment, and if the relationship doesn't work, move along to the next selection. The menu’s ideal for sharing and for mixing up in endless combinations. Alternate between chevre tartlet, spanakopita, or smoked salmon carpaccio. Invent your own meal. Dining in such a way permits the rules of wine pairings to step aside like snooty impostors, and what goes best with dinner is exactly what tempts you. Santiago’s Bodega is a good-natured, low-key, food-lovers hangout, a neighborhood restaurant. - Margit Bisztray
