We live in New Jersey and every single time we come to Boston, Bodega is our first date night spot of the weekend. THE. COCONUT. MARGARITAS. are what keep us coming back alone. Amazing energy, amazing food. 10/10!!

It was great. Would recommend to anyone. I go around Boston with this group of friends trying nachos in different restaurants. Nachos were some of the best I’ve had in my last 4 years in Boston, and a wonderful note to end on since most of us are moving on in the next few weeks. Easily the top 5. Go eat them. You’ll want two trays. Trust me.

Slow service, served half the food cold, then the other half 20 minutes later. Have to order the same taco (x 3). Outside picnic tables don’t match inside. Wouldn’t go back.

Nice and lowkey chill restaurant. If you go, get the grilled avocado tacos - BOMB. Comp chips and salsas. Margaritas are good too

We came here years ago when Bodega Canal first opened, and weren't impressed. Luckily, things have really turned around! Great service, food/drink, and patio. We're so glad we gave Bodega Canal another chance and will definitely be back!

Was way too loud. Some of the food was cold when it shouldn’t be. Waitress was weird about ID and didn’t take anyone else’s far away to scan. Felt unwelcome and like i wasted my money.

So delicious and great ambiance. Perfect for a date or just a post-work hangout. We were in a hurry, so I wish I had had more time to really savor everything, but nonetheless the service was excellent. Once they knew of our time constraints, they were extremely diligent and speedy. Coming back tonight for dinner so I’m excited to get to experience it all once more!

Horrible service! Made reservations for 4 two weeks prior for bday. We arrive and no table available. The host sits us in the lower level/basement where it was stuffy and hot and no other customers sitting here. I brought it up to her and 10 minutes later they moved us upstairs to a small table. Overall Waitress provided bad service!!! Took forever to take our order or serve anything, wasn’t attentive, leaving plates on table when we were done. Then they had the audacity to tell us we needed to leave because they had reservations for that table. Meanwhile there were other empty tables. Dissatisfied customer is an understatement!!!!

I went with my wife for an impromptu date and drinks. The food was good and the cocktail selection was nice. The server was very friendly, but they were very slow with service for a quiet night and we would have ordered more food and drinks if they came back to check on us. We would go again.

We went in Cheap Date Night on a Thursday. Super quiet and well spaced out due to COVID restrictions. $25 for chips and dips, guac, street corn, 2 tacos each, and churros for two. Left room in the budget for ok margaritas. 2 choices of vegetarian tacos! The food was very good. We left full. Dark nightclub style decor.

Food was good! It was really loud for 6pm on a Tuesday. The service was slightly poor but quick and they kicked us out after and hour and a half. It was obvious the server didn’t like us. We understand that is the rule but there was also groups that had been there much longer and it there were lots of tables open. We still wanted to order more drinks and food. Oh well!

From the drinks to the food, excellent. Started with a Miami vice pitcher, then got a pineapple margarita pitcher both were amazing. We got the nacho cheese dip, excellent. Steak fajitas, tequila wings, chicken bowl, and chicken tacos! Perfect atmosphere, super unique place! Will be back.

The drinks were great but the tacos for taco Tuesday were very sub par. The ambiance was cool when we walked in, but unfortunately we were seated downstairs by the bathroom. Our waitress forgot about us and after waiting to order another drink we finally had to get up and track her down ask for the check, and then bring it back to her as well as she still didn't come check on us. I would go for drinks if I sat at the bar, but overall the experience could have been much better.

They had 9:45 reservation available and they closed at 10pm. It was terrible. Why even offer that time if you’re going to rush me to sit down and order within 10 minutes. We literally sat down and within 20 min we had to get up abs leave because they closed. I love bodega canal but come on this is ridiculous. GET RID of the late reservation if you can accommodate it!!!
