    Everything was fantastic- I would have like if the waiter would have asked us what type of rim for our beverages before just ruming with salt (or pre warning us) then being bother by asking to changed the rim

    Bodega CanalResponded on August 2, 2022Thank you so much, we're so glad you enjoyed your experience! We apologize for any confusion -- in addition to salt we offer black lava salt, tajin and sugar for our margaritas rims!

    Unsure why the air conditioning wasn't really going. It was like 95 degrees outside, and frankly almost as hot in there. Food and drink was awesome as usual.

    Bodega CanalResponded on July 26, 2022Hi Joseph, very glad to hear you enjoyed your food and drinks! We apologize about the temperature. We tried our best to keep the restaurant cool but the heat wave made this a little more difficult. We hope your experience doesn't deter you from visiting in the near future!

    We went on a day where it was 90°. We asked for seating inside as we figured there would be AC. There was none. The air flow was so horrible and it was so hot in the restaurant that people were visibly sweating through their clothing. People were using their dirty napkins to dab and wipe the sweat off of their faces and necks. It was unbearably hot. My party had to actively leave to go splash cold water on themselves in the bathroom to even attempt to cool down. Food and drinks were amazing. That’s the only thing that redeems this experience. Will go back during the winter or fall ONLY. O

    Bodega CanalResponded on July 21, 2022Hello, we apologize that your experience did not meet your expectations. We have been having issues with our AC unit. Using our fans with the windows open usually creates a cool environment, but this week has been more difficult to cool the room down with the rising temperatures. We appreciate your feedback and we are getting the unit fixed. We are glad you enjoyed your food and drinks, but if there's any way we can fix this experience for you please email our General Manager jason@bodegacanal.

    Took forever to get a hold of our waiter a lot of the time, had to physically yell excuse me to get his attention lol. Mango Marg pitcher was good value for money, ~6-7 drinks in each, but tacos left something to be desired.

    Bodega CanalResponded on July 19, 2022Hello, we apologize for the delay in service on Friday. It was a particularly busy night for our staff and we hope this does not deter you from visiting us again sometime in the future.

    Love the aesthetic. Tortilla chips came with two types of salsa and hummus??? The staff was nice and attentive. Kinda dark inside but super spacious. Good drinks. It’s a good place to go with friends and just eat mexican THEMED food. Tacos were good but I wouldn’t say it was authentic.

    Went for the Wednesday date night menu, I was disappointed in that menu of their offerings for tacos, the barria was not a option, so I had to order them separately. Drinks tasted good, not too strong. Waiter was attentive enough. I was not a fan of my tacos in the end, the tres leche was not that great but they ran out of churros. My counterparts liked their food for the most part, I love tacos abit more so I could just be too picky now. Solid food, not my favorite in the end. The beef empanadas were awesome. I would go back for those.

    Bodega CanalResponded on June 14, 2022Hello Kiara, Friday night was a very busy night as the NBA Finals game was down the street from us. We tried to accommodate all guests and ensure everyone had a great experience, however the number of guests who came in for the game made these accommodations slightly more difficult. We would be happy to have you come back another night, and if there is anything we can do to make up for this mix up on Friday evening please email our General Manager jason@bodegacanal.

    The only reason to not give 5 Stars is that you do not have menus, and we could not get access to the Bodega Wi-Fi. Took forever to load the menu and basically ordered from memory of my last visit.

    The service of this place is extremely bad, especially towards non-Americans. We went for dinner at night and from the moment we walked in, the bouncer had a problem with our IDs, which were PASSPORTS. Afterwards they were rude to our guy friends that wanted to go to the back area, because "the group had too many guys" (we were 4 girls and 2 boys). The worst part was towards the end when we wanted to leave. We tried going to the front and leave, but the bouncer started yelling at us saying that that was not the exit. After that another bouncer approached us and started clapping in our faces yelling "it's time to leave" "chop chop". This was so appalling and extremely disrespectful. The man was so rude and violent. He yelled at all of our group and squished us in the hallway. There are nicer ways to tell people to please exit through the back door. After several times trying this place, we are NEVER returning. Their service is extremely rude and xenophobic. The are a "Mexican" place and they treat any Mexican or person of color EXTREMELY horrible. Bouncer was so disrespectful to the point where we have decided not to back again. This experience was disgusting and demeaning.

    Wanted to get drinks. Service staff said we could sit at a table but would not serve us drinks, we’d have to go up to the bar and order.

    Bodega CanalResponded on May 3, 2022Hi there, we apologize for any confusion. Our restaurant servers stop taking new tables after 10:00 PM on the weekends. While guests that come in after 10 are welcome to sit, we encourage them to order their drinks at the bar as we transition into nightlife. I hope this clears some things up for you.
