A word from Ofrenda
An Ofrenda, in Spanish, is an offering, a gift. At their cozy West Village space, owner Jorge Guzman and Chef Mario Hernandez offer their unique interpretation of classic Mexican cuisine with an innovative cocktail menu of tequila-based drinks.
Named by NYLuxury as “one of the top ten restaurants in New York serving Latin food” and as “Top Tequila Bar in the US” by the editors of USA Today, this intimate and stylish cocina offers its guests a blend of passions. Jorge’s desire is to create a sexy and fun space to enjoy creative cocktails with the best of Latin cuisine. While Chef Mario’s dream is to craft dishes to showcase the indigenous ingredients of Mexico, the foods his ancestors enjoyed, and bring those flavors to a new generation.
This team has joined forces to offer guests a unique dining experience. We look forward to having you.

  • "Made an reservation but was not seated until 40 minutes, was told to wait at the crowded bar where we were pushed around by drunk people. Service was not great. Food was good though, but we probably won't be coming back."

  • "My favorite mexican place!!! the food is so tasty and different from the typical cuisine you can find in other mexican places. You should Try the Suadero tacos, shrimp tacos !!!!!! ceviche is to die for and the Chicken with Mole is a must. As for drinks my love goes for the jalapeño margarita and Devil in Oaxaca. Service is very fast and friendly! Is definetly a gem in jazzy West village. If you are looking to go somewhere to have an ethnic, spicy magic experience.... This is the place."

  • "I had the fish tacos and cucumber margarita my favorite as always. My friends and I enjoyed to go every time. And our server was really kind. Perfect place to enjoy the summer."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "There wasn't enough staff. I had a reservation and I really don't think they should take more people than they can accommodate."

  • "Went for brunch for Father's Day. Everything was good except my "sunny side up" eggs were overdone. Despite that, the sauce was very good which almost made up for it."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Lovely neighborhood restaurant with super nice staff. I had the fish tacos and my father had the chicken breast--both excellent choices. A nice father's day experience! My dad was happy and that made me happy too!"

  • "Loved Ofrenda, the food is amazing and the waiters are incredibly customer service oriented."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "There was no air conditioning when we arrived, so we asked to be moved closer to the window when a table became available. When one did, they moved the table next to us who had arrived and asked to be moved after us. We watched several tables around us get their food ahead of us, only to have all of our dishes appetizers and entrees arrive all at once. The staff tried to be apologetic about the disorganization, but seemed helpless to do anything about any of it. Some of the dishes were delicious, better than average Mexican fair, but not all. The quality was definitely inconsistent. The next day, we received an email from OpenTable telling us the restaurant had marked us as "No Shows." Should have marked us as "Won't Be Back.""

  • "The lighting and lively atmosphere were perfect for a date. This spot offers a 'hole in the wall' feel with great ambiance and dim lighting which cast a charmingly romantic appeal. Their cocktail list is amply supplied with some must try specials, and the house margarita had just the right amount of tequila and lime mixed. The menu lends itself very nicely for sharing on a date."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Do not go there. It's just not worth the money. We had booked a table but still got to wait a good while just standing there. The volume of the local is terrible, you can not hold a conversation in there. They are trying to squeeze as much people as possible in to that small space and then rush them through dinner. What made me most disappointed, however, was that the food was not good. The guacamole was okay but the main course (enchiladas) was so disgusting that we could not eat it. Enchilada with beans swam around in a loose brown sauce. Oh it was so disgusting. Our waitress was pleasant and did their best. Go somewhere else."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "I was excited to go here as the Yelp reviews were good...however from the time we hit the door we were rushed from start to finish. When I asked about but, she initially said it was because she wanted us to order to get the happy hour prices. When I told her I was concerned by that, the rushing didn't stop...and while it was busy they did not have people waiting. It was just uncomfortable service and I will never return to that restaurant again."

  • "Get a seat on the patio, have a couple of drinks and look out onto the pedestrian busy 7th Ave. Fantastic for people watching in the heart of the West Village."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Ofrenda is one of our favorite go to places. Happy hour is fantastic - smoky margaritas and michealadas are great. The food is always delicious and the bartenders, hostesses, wait staff all friendly."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Ofrenda was a pleasant discovery for me and my date. It was pretty loud by 6:30 on Saturday but all of the food from the guac to start to tacos entrees were delicious. Magaritas hit the spot and service was outstanding"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "I eat here every time I visit New York City. The tenderness and burst of flavors in the veggie and cheese chile relleno make it the best item on the menu. Pair this entrée with a prickly pear margarita and you'll feel like you died and went to heaven! "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We really enjoyed Ofrenda. The quarters are tight and there is a lot going on but the food and the drinks make up for it. Particularly liked the guacamole and the queso fundido with chorizo. Had enchiladas, which were delicious. Will definitely go back to try the tacos!"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Offends was great! We were pleasantly surprised with discounted drinks and apps until 7 pm. The food was really good. I'll definitely be going back. "

  • "celebrated my bday with a group of ten on busy weekend before cinco de mayo. all of the food was terrific, especially the pork belly tacos. it is Mexican food with a twist and done to the next level. waitress and manager were friendly and food came quickly even on a busy night. Cucumber margarita is ridiculously good but none of the drinks disappointed and the manager comping us a round of tequila shots on the way out the door ended the night on a great note. will definitely be back. "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "The dining space and bar are small. While waiting for the rest of our party to arrive we felt awkward that there wasn't really a place to wait. However, once we sat down we had great service. The classic margarita was great, really refreshing. Definitely recommend the fish tacos too!"

  • "I love this small, cozy, homey spot for drinks like smoky jalapeño mango margaritas and snacks so I went with a group for brunch. It did not disappoint in any way. The food was fantastic--guac and chips were fresh, chicken enchiladas were delicious, and the fish tacos were some of the best I've ever eaten. The service was a bit slow but it was a busy Saturday but the staff was friendly and they kept the drinks and water coming. Despite the touristy location at 7th ave and w 4th this place is full of fun-loving locals, authentic food, and good times. I highly recommend it!"

  • "Drove past this place many times without giving it a second thought. First Saturday with great weather, my girlfriends and I were looking for an outdoor brunch spot with a Mexican flare. This place popped up on opentable so we gave it a shot. WOW!!!!! Every dish was amazing! Authentic Mexican food with extraordinary service. I recommend the Gorditas and the guacamole the most. Huevos pochados and huevos rancheros were also very good. Will be stopping by what we always called that "random place with the black awning on 7th" and now call "our favorite new brunch spot" many times!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Living in New York, I find it unjustifiable to go to the same place twice. However, I've been to Ofrenda over and over again, it's a place I take out of town guests, drop by when I'm in the neighborhood, or just have casual drinks and appetizers with friends. The menu changes seasonally and with each evolution I find a new favorite dish. The service is always homey and welcoming. This time I tried their new taco menu, I'm still tasting the pork belly tacos, I'm craving the sauce as we speak. The fish tacos were also delicious. This place never disappoints."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "The service here is excellent...the manager makes sure that everyone is taken care of. And the food is great, especially the fish tacos."

  • "I had come to Offrenda with my son after being told at a trendy Mexican restaurant there would be a 2 hour wait. We were so glad we couldn't get into the other restaurant. We waited a long time at the bar for our table so the hostess gave us our margaritas for free and then we had delicous food. We went back with a group of 7 Sunday night. It was happy hour and the prices were very reasonable and the food was just as good. The chile releno and fish tacos are delicious!"

  • "Very strong cocktails and good food in a great part of manhattan!"

  • "Visited this spot on Saturday night and my group (4 of us) were tremendously pleased with the food, the drinks and the atmosphere. The manager was particularly nice, even though the other two people were an hour late. Overall, highly recommended for a night out with friends - a small group, intimate setting, great atmosphere and fantastic food."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Food and drinks were great. Have been coming to this spot for a while and will continue to do so. One item however, it was exceptionally loud. Granted I was there on a Friday night but there was one point where the conversations reached a particularly high volume and the music was actually turned up over those conversations. If the music was a bit lower it is possible the conversations would be too."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Delicious margaritas, and wonderful service. They made my friends birthday really special. The food was delicious and the atmosphere/decor was really warm and homey. Definitely recommend!"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "From the moment we walked in, everyone was very attentive. We had a delicious meal. We had 2 appetizers. The fish tacos were amazing. The guacamole was perfect with just a hint of heat. I had the pork carnitas and didn't realize that there would be 3 to a plate. I had to take the other 2 home, but delicious. It was very reasonable, too. My husband had the mushroom special and also all very good. As we left, the waiter shook my husband's hand and the owner helped me put on my coat. They were the nicest people. I would definitely go back."
