Good food and service. We
Good food and service. We had noticed Ofrenda near our home and tried once to walk in but it was packed; so we finally made a reservation. We loved the food. It was a little hard to find a relatively quiet table to converse and we made a bad judgement to sit in back by a very busy, elevated table of about ten, who were animated but not obnoxious. We would have had a good wait to sit outside. But, overall, no complaints because the service and food are excellent: both pork and chicken enchiladas; lamb empanadas for appetizers, and a chocolate brownie confection that was very tasty.

Delicious, but loud
The food is excellent--especially the Pollo en manchamanteles--and the margaritas are, too. The staff are pleasant and accommodating.
The only thing that makes me hesitate to eat there more often is the shattering level of noise. My group of five was huddled around a relatively small table, yet I could barely hear the people on either side--much less the two seated across from me--over the din. Conversation was almost impossible. Perhaps some parts of the dining room are less noisy? If you're sensitive to this, it would be worthwhile to ask.

Great Mexican in the west village
Went for brunch and the food was amazing, so flavorful! The fish tacos in particular we're amazing. The drinks were also very good (and strong!) but the service was a bit slow.

Fantastic Gem in the West Village
We went for Happy Hour and we stayed long into the evening. The Smoky Jalapeno margaritas are spectacular. The cucumber margaritas are tasty and refreshing. I'm salivating as I write this! They have a limited happy hour menu of appetizers. Their guacamole was out of this world, served with crisp, fresh chips. The fish tacos were heavenly. I'm not crazy about plantains, but these had me drooling and going back for more. Service was friendly and attentive. The ambiance was spectacular. I want to go back there tonight. My only sadness with Ofrenda is that it's too far away from my apartment for me to go there on a regular basis! : )

Ofrenda is great but not the noise
Fantastic Happy Hour offerings. Food is terrific, Margaritas are high octane and tasty. Luckily I sat outside so I could make out some of the conversation at my table. I've been inside a few times and it was very hard to hear your dining companions. With the addition of the music I would say the noise level was irritating. The food is wonderful and not your usual "Mexican" fare. Great guacamole.
Go early or go at lunchtime, you'll be glad you did.

Ofrenda the great!
Located smack dab in the heart of West Village, Ofrenda is a high-energy mexican restaurant serving up fresh and delicious fare alongside killer margaritas. Outdoor seating + floor to ceilings windows that are kept open when nice make it a great people watching space. Staff/Hostess very friend. By far one of the best happy hour spots in the city - I almost don't want to write about it! Reservations are painless to make and with $7 appetizers (they don't skimp!) plus $5/6 margaritas it's safe to say it is my favorite HH joint in the city. Best for small groups/girl's night but I'd go to Mole for a more romantic date.

The food was really good,
The food was really good, but $12 for chips and guac is excessive.

Terrific menu & drinks
The menu is not a run-of-the-mill selection of the usual Mexican recipes and the drinks were awesome. It can be loud so I couldn't recommend it for romantic dining (maybe off-hours are quieter) but it's great for meeting friends. They can accommodate larger groups too.

Great margaritas and food!
First time at Ofrenda. We were offered happy hour drinks and food at the table. The smoky jalapeño margarita was fantastic. The was a large choice of plates from the happy hour menu, all reasonably priced and excellent. We will definitely be back. Great find in the west village.

Spotty service, but great food.
Went there for brunch. There was 4 of us. Each person's entree did not arrive at the same time. The last person's entree arrived about 2 minutes after everyone else. After food was placed on the table, it's customary for waitstaff to ask if we need anything else. That did not happen. We had to chase down waitstaff for salt and pepper. After completing our meal, we sat at our table just talking. We never felt rushed.
Food was really good.

I've been to Ofrenda for both happy hour and dinner on several occasions, and the margaritas are always excellent. The food is good as well. Because the space is small, it can get crowded and loud, but it's worth it!

Love this place!
Smoky jalapeno margarita - yum! Everything we have had there is great.
