A word from Negril Village
Located in the heart of Greenwich Village, Negril Village promises to entertain your soul as well as your palette in a hip & classy environment. The latest installment in the Negril chain specializes in Nu Caribbean cuisine or what is dubbed “New York Savvy Caribbean cuisine”. The menu embraces the cooking styles and techniques of destinations such as Trinidad (i.e. Chicken Roti), Puerto Rico (i.e. Island Paella), and of course Jamaica (i.e. Jerk Chicken and Ackee). Set on two levels, the restaurants décor can be described as contemporary yet natural. The spacious dining room, on the upper level, boasts bamboo floors and seashell lined walls; while the Rhum lounge, on the lower level, warms you with its raisin interior, red lacquer floors, and in-house DJ. Live Reggae, Calypso, and Latin bands will further enchant you as you sip one of Negril Village’s many tropical drinks.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The food is impressive as usual but what blew my mind is I was there to celebrate my anniversary and they wished us a Happy Anniversary when we got there and then surprised us with a tray of sample deserts which the manager delivered himself!! Now that is great customer service"

  • "A friend and I visited Negril Village for Sunday Brunch! We shared the shrimp & grits and banana french toast. They were both amazing, simply delicious! We were pretty full, both decided to try the bread pudding for dessert. I'm not sure whether I enjoyed the bread pudding or the rum ice cream the most! On top of a great meal, our server and wait staff were amazing! They checked on us regular and made great recommendations when we asked about menu items. I will certainly be dining at Negril Village again, next time for dinner!"

  • "An elegant, multilevel West Indian restaurant with a lounge on the lower level that offers a delightful dining experience in terms of ambiance, and exceptional dishes! Meals were exceptional. We enjoyed guava glazed wings, sample plate of oxtail, jerk & goat with r&p. The salad (mango with walnut, blue cheese and sweet vinaigrette) was a bit drenched in dressing and I had blue cheese excluded but apart from this, Thank you for this experience!"

  • "I guess I went to Negrils with too high of an expectation. Customer service was GREAT. However The food was OK.. The can sodas were flat and $3 a can.. To top it off, A roach was crawling by our wall/seat . The host told the manager & the manager came over to apologize and took care of our bill + shots & desserts. Their customer service definitely outweighed everything. Even though I didn't have such a good experience and highly doubt I'll return for dinner , It was cool. Maybe I'll just head for the lounge next time :)."

  • "Heard Negril Village was super for Caribbean styled food. We were not disappointed! Terrific wait staff...and although the place was packed (always a good sign) we were served very quickly and patiently...we had a lot of questions about the definitions of ingredients that we were not accustomed to and needed help! Food was delicious, cocktails amazing and service was terrific."

  • "As always Negril Village was a hit! The food is great! The only thing is that it is always packed and the wait can be long even with a reservation. But once you sit down to eat the food, you forget the wait!"

  • "The service is great, I made a reservation on the phone but the hostess was very impolite and seemed like she didn't have time for me. In person there were two hostesses they both seemed friendly , I only suggest they work on their phone manners. (She was rude)."

  • "It was my daughter's birthday, 20th, took her to dinner with my mother and sister. It was very lovely. The service was exceptional. Andy our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. He did an exceptional job. The food was very well presented and was so delicous. My sis had ordered the salmon and was about to doubt her order as she thought she should have done something jamacian. But one bite of the salmon and she was very glad she did. it was awesome. My 89year old mother was extremely satisfied. she smiled and said she "dont have to eat for days'. the appetizers, the main and the desert left with clean plates. We were all full. ONly needed a bed to sleep it off. lol. I will most definately recommend Negril Village and go again"

  • "We were a party of six with a reservation for 8pm. We were seated right away. We requested a different table and were promptly accommodated. Service was efficient and courteous. The menu had an impressive selection of Jamaican dishes. Most of us had brown stewed chicken which was very good. Two of our group had oxtail and enjoyed it very much. Although there was an interesting selection of beer and cocktails, a negative for me was that there was no wine selection. The only wine available was pino grigio and sangria. The restaurant had a very lively atmosphere. When I want Jamaican food, this will be the restaurant I will go to."

  • "I went her with my 3 year old niece to meet up with some friends as soon as we arrived we were seated even thou the whole party hadn't arrived yet which was a plus to me. The waiter was really nice and attentive. We ordered the chef sampler which was very good but it doesn't necessarily feed 2 people but we were content so no complaints..."

  • "This was my first time visiting negrill. I made a reservation for a party of 5 for a friend's birthday dinner. I was disappointed to find that incomplete parties could not be seated even though I had a reservation and the restaurant was almost empty. We got drinks at the bar during hh while we waited; which was great. ( dark and stormy is awesome) Once the entire party arrived we were seated and our server was okay. He seemed a bit overwhelmed by other tables but he was definitely trying his best. Food is amazing! Try the oxtails. Overall I would visit again but not sure if it will be anytime soon. High prices and small portions."

  • "We had brunch there our servers were excellent. Didn't appreciate the host being rude when they needed our table for a reservation. He comes up to us and goes I just wanted to introduce myself and see how you are. Then right after says by the way I need this table. Instead of him saying we need this table and we can move you to another table if you would to stay longer. His delivery was really snotty."

  • "Negril Village is an amazing spot. I've never been disappointed with any of the food i've eaten. It's normally hard to find a good caribbean food spot that's not cheap and Americanized. This food is amazing, the atmosphere is grown it's just a little warm. Definitely recommend though!"

  • "I ordered the oxtail stew and it was just all fat. They clearly was too lazy to remove the fat from the oxtail. It was just disgusting to eat. My rice was dry and the collard did not taste well. For the money I paid I was highly disappointed."

  • "This was my second or third time eating at Negril and every time I go, I enjoy the food. The food is always fresh, hot, well seasoned and tasty. The portion size are just the right amount. The waiters/waitress provide very good service! I went for dinner this time and took my daughter. It was her first time there, and she really enjoyed the food as well. She said she would definitely go back again. They is always a lively crowd & the staff is friendly!"

  • "My family chose this restaurant for my brother's birthday. He loves Jamaican food, but is very discriminating in his dining choices. I'm happy to say that Negril Village met his standards, and ours as well. Our hostess texted me approximately 4 hours before our reservations to confirm. When we arrived I wasn't surprised to see more than 20 diners waiting for tables. I'm so glad we decided to reserve our table. After waiting for more than 15 minutes for our table, we were anxious to begin our dining experience. My brother chose steak, which he highly enjoyed, and I was pleased with the vegetarian choices available, namely the roti with vegetables, which was delicious! My only complaint was the noise level; we had to repeat ourselves often."

  • "I love this place, and have for years. The food is always amazing and the service is impeccable. Just to give an example of the service, my wife and I had a small mishap with one if our appetizers. We let the staff know and they immediately remedied the mishap above and beyond our expectations. I looked at my wife and said, "This is why Negril is my favorite spot in New York." That's why we made reservations for next week."
