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.

I bite into a piece of glass that was in my taco. They claimed to have taken items off the bill and then overcharged me for the amount I signed for

The food at Ofrenda is outstanding, each plate is unique and tasty, and we couldn't get enough of the different flavors. While our waiter was friendly, it was hard to get his attention and he forgot to bring some things we ordered.
The noise is REALLY loud - the music is a terrific choice but it's up too high and people have to shout to speak.
Would definitely go back but probably order take out instead.

Even though we had reserved the waitress said it was first come first serve which I didn’t understand. So it took about 15 mins to get a table. The service left a lot to be desired for. They took a while to get our first order in for drinks and appetizers. After that no one bothered to check in for the mains. Our waiter just walked guessing his shift was over and we were just sat there for quite a bit. Finally we had to ask a server walking by to take our order. After our mains nobody bothered to check about desserts we were just so put off we decided to give it a miss. The food was decent though a tad overpriced... not super flavorful. Have had better. Ok for a one time Mexican craving. Won’t be going back.

Wish the sidewalk set up was a little more legit, so we weren’t worried about being so close to cars.

But Jesùs was the best !!!

I love this restaurant, the food and drinks are outstanding and service is excellent, very friendly and attentive. I don't think I have had a single item here that hasn't been delicious! Highly recommend their interesting (and yummy) version of nachos, laid out flat on four tortillas. Their quesadilla is also thick and cheesy. You can't go wrong with any of their quality margaritas. My only tiny beef is that the music inside tends to get a bit too loud for conversation.

The food was very good and reasonably priced. I wasn't very happy with COVID safety, though, which made the experience less enjoyable. The dining space is just about completely enclosed on three sides, and the other side opens into the restaurant, so it felt almost like indoor dining. It was certainly warm, but I would have liked more open air circulation from the outside.

I am a west coast native and it’s hard to find decent Mexican cuisine in the city. Ofrenda represented well! I enjoyed the authentic tacos, queso was delicious and drinks were yummy. Outdoor seating was warm enough. Restaurant was clean, staff was very friendly and accommodating. I recommend it! Portions are a small, just FYI. The tacos come with 2, slightly larger street tacos.

Hadn't been here in two years and this place is still and will always be such a treat. I always come for the Happy Hour. The staff was attentive and the food is SO YUMMY, we had fish tacos, shrimp tostados and a quesadilla with mushrooms. I'm never disappointed at this place, the margaritas were good too, I had a passion fruit and a prickly pear one. The waitstaff is also very friendly and attentive. I HIGHLY recommend this place. Dining outside was just as lovely as we had heat lamps, plexi-glass partitions and it was all very safe and comfortable.
