They weren't able to seat us because it was too busy but it was ok. The bar was also crowded but it wasn't worth complaining about, I purchased a few drinks which were great and strong. Place was lively and loud, but it was expected for a Friday night. Great service from our waiter who gave great suggestions about food. Where my server was too busy there was a very attentative helper off to the side that would replenish napkins, clear the table and do the little things. Good was great the drinks were outstanding so I have no complaints. Get the mussels!!!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Take on Traditional foodI have been going to this restaurant for a number of years and remember when there was another location on 23rd Street but that closed so we now visit the other location downtown. Great and modern take on traditional Jamaican food. Being from the island, I'm definitely critical but I've always had a great experience and so has my family. The ackee tostones are fabulous!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingGreat place for celebration... Food is simply amazing.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI am of Jamaican descent andI am of Jamaican descent and usually I stay away from "gourmet" carribean eateries because usually they have no clue on how to make authentic island food. Negril defies all of that. They know how to make an authentic Jamaican meal. From the curry goat, oxtail, jerk chicken or shrimp, it is all good!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been to Negril on manyI've been to Negril on many occasions..very nice restaurant.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experienceThe food was excellent along with the rum punch!.

We had a wonderful time.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFriends celebrating a BirthdayThe atmosphere was great, food was delicious and the couple was great. I love the boneless curried chicken roti, and the oxtails rice and peas were an absolute hit. Would definitely be returning to Negril.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMawesomeThe food is awesome.......can go wrong with the oxtails and grill salmon....rum cream is real good too.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFinally we got a table....My wife and I have tried to get a table in this spot for years. Every time we come to NYC, it has been booked so we were never able to sample this restaurant. Although that was frustrating, we took it as a good sign. The place has a nice vibe. The staff is friendly and attentive and the food is good. What more could you want? And lest I forget, the drinks are great!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe girls and I came hereThe girls and I came here Friday to celebrate my birthday and we had a wonderful time. The food was great and the drinks were good (the rum punch is no joke). It was a tad bit loud with all the different conversations going on and the music playing as well but it was fine. I always heard good things about Negril and had to try it for myself. Im so glad I did.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday Celebration SuccessI went here last week to celebrate by 30th birthday with some family and friends. We had a good experience.
My entire group enjoyed their food and drinks! Beware, the drinks are a bit strong.
Lively spot great for all ages, the music was good. A bit loud.
They will not seat you until your entire group has arrived. Make a reservation and lie to your friends about timing.
We waited a long time for our entrees to come out. I am guessing because it was so packed. Try to go earlier on a Friday or Saturday night.
Even if you eat upstairs they will charge you to go to their lounge in the basement. If you eat there the lounge should be free.
I would definitely go back again!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, Nice place to eatThe food was great. I took my husband here for his birthday with a couple of friends and it was our second time there. Everyone enjoyed the food and like the atmosphere. Our server was nice but he was not outstanding.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Caribbean food in NYCI took my mum there for her 78th birthday. I've eaten at Negril Village before and thought it would be a nice place to celebrate my mum's birthday. Our server was Miguel and he was spot on with his charm. Along with my party was my sister and my nephew. They all rave about the food and the atmosphere where we enjoyed our dining experience. Price was not an object. Just good service and celebrating my mum's first experience there. No less, Negril Village will see us yet again and hopefully we get Miguel again. I'm glad you investigated my reservation here on Open Table and that I fulfilled the reservation on date stetted. I guess since it's such a popular restaurant, during the confusion, one can make an error that I honour my reservation.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOne word: rum punch. OkayOne word: rum punch. Okay maybe that's two, but this place is outstanding. The food tasted very authentic. Reggae music played in the background while eating.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHome away from home.The porridge reminded me of being home. The food is authentic Jamaican. The music could be played a little lower. Overall, a great place to dine.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOur reservations were forOur reservations were for 12:30 party of 10, we arrived @ 1205 and were told they were setting up- no prob we waited and toured the basement lounge. Nice atmosphere- Although the gentleman at the door's attitude left much to be desired. He had a rudeness about him that didn't transcend throughout the place-thank goodness. Anyway- live steel band player was a nice added touch to our Easter brunch. The food was remarkable- great traditional Jamaican flavor and portions were right on point.Being of caribbean descent this was a great plus! We even had our free d rink voucher honored. Jermaine was a great waiter and we will be back!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMNegril Village is great! ExcellentNegril Village is great! Excellent food, great drinks, and good vibes.
