Everything we ordered at this Spanish tapas restaurant was amazing.

There is a large patio, which is preferred...More

If there are no tables outside maybe keep walking to another eatery. Inside was wide open and the hostess chose to seat us 8 inches from the loudest person I’ve ever eaten next to that wasn’t asked to leave. Yes the food is good here....More

I've been to Santiago's so many times I've lost count. I absolutely love it! I don't think there is anything on the menu that I do not enjoy. Their main menu does not rotate and has so many great tapas to order. The beef carpaccio...More

We had a selection of tapas dishes and all were excellent. We had 3 kids with us and they also liked everything they tasted. Our server was exceptional, walking us through the selections, making recommendations, and making us feel welcome.

This is a cool spot. I sat outside and enjoyed the cool night. Loved the shrimp and chorizo. Brussel sprouts were good too.

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
