SFReview

Bodega serves really good (but pricey) small plates that are mostly made to share. The mushroom toast is solid, and the Bodega Dawg (with their housemade sausage) is actually large enough to split without secretly resenting whoever you happen to be splitting it with. This place is great for a nice date with drinks and light bites - everything on the wine list is available by the glass or bottle, and while seating is mostly either at the bar or at small communal tables, there are also a few two- and four-tops.
