With its chic, jazzy and very contemporary look, Santiago's Bodega lies in Bahama Village, a historic neighborhood. You will find hot and cold tapas from $4 to $10. This tapas bar offers traditional Spanish food, Greek meza and a melange of dishes. Choose between Chicken Skewers and Spanikopita (spinach, feta and onion baked in a pastry), or just sip your glass of sangria and watch little kids race on bikes outside the restaurant.
Restaurant is a small intimate place. Its not the Cheesecake Factory so when a group of 5 20somthings sit in corner table and are loud and obnoxious it ruins the entire dining experience. The staff even acknowledged the noise was loud. What worsened the experience the staff told us we'd have to ask them to keep the noise down. After a while one of the bartenders said something and that just made them worse
The floors and walls are all hard surfaces so the sound bounces around. Management needs to put baffels under the tables and chairs and some tapastries on the walls and it will be a quite and cute intimate place.
We probably will forego dining there again until they make some improvments.
At happy hour even the wine was 50% off so it was incredibly reasonable and the food was great. We wound up ordering lots of tapas and had more food than we could eat. The service was also very friendly and we plan on going back soon.
