Years ago I did. Went to Calgary Canada cause they had the most appointments available at the time. It was seamless and super quick. I got my visa the same day or the next day at the latest if I remember correctly. Bonus is the consulate was downtown Calgary so it made for a quick getaway/mini vacation since I had plenty of time to explore.

Nothing other than the required docs no. Not sure how covid plays into it all but as long as you have all your documentation you should be ok.
