Seated outdoors where there were no heaters and staff apparently forget about you.

When we inquired about moving tables inside, we were informed that even though they appeared 25% occupied, a wait for an indoor table would be minimum hour and a half wait.

Had a round of drinks while making reservations for a different restaurant and then had to hunt down our server to pay. Overall, it appears over rated and not worth the experience.

Overall good. The food was the highlight. Nothing special happens for birthdays I guess. Had better expectations on seating so I recommend when reserving calling to ask for better seats. It gets hot in the second floor.

Great margarita and service. My dinner order was not correct and our waitress got it fixed immediately. Definitely a stop on game or show nights in North Station.

The Taco Tuesday special is worth it! The margaritas are very good. The service was a little slow, but we were enjoying our time together so it wasn’t too much of a hassle

The service was the only redeeming quality of the experience. Steak fajitas were basically raw and couldn’t be bitten through, hot Cheetos corn had zero sauce and were gummy/poorly shucked, cauliflower tacos had way too much of the mayo based sauce, gauc was bland (needed spice, lime, salt, something) and queso tasted like it was straight out of a Tostitos jar.

First round of tacos on Tuesday were cold so I had to knock a star off for that but the next round were super warm and fresh. Great weekdays specials and the lounge is a decent club spot with great music!

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.

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!!!!

The noise was too loud to the extent that you had to shout to talk to the person sitting next to you.
