Our server Kordell was great, really courteous, welcoming and considerate. He made our evening, it has been a while since we have been to Bodeans. The food was not as good on this occassion, burnt ends and baby back ribs were good, however, the chicken was a bit on the dry side and the spare ribs were too salty which impacted the flavour of the ribs. So as I said earlier, the service is what made our evening rather than the food, which is a real shame as we had waited so long to enjoy a meal with you. Not sure when we will dine with Bodeans again, but we hope we can give a 10/10 review.

The chef made my ribs on a grill that hadn’t been touched by pork. I had gone a long way just for the beef ribs, and was very upset at the thought of it not being available without pork touching it. It meant a lot to me that the head chef saw to my needs.

I love Bodeans!! Food is always awesome and a really chilled and relaxing environment. Only suggestion would be to improve the decor of the soho restaurant a little but as far as BBQ goes it’s immense food and value!!
