Due to limits on our seating capacity and to ensure ample time for cleaning; sanitizing, we ask kindly all guests to honor a 1.5 hr seating.

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.

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.

We weren’t sat until about 45 minutes past our reservation time (perhaps due to rain earlier that day), however service, food, and drinks were enjoyable.

Barriers between tables, masked personnel and QR code menus make for a safe eating environment. Service was excellent, tacos and margaritas were very good.

We had a blast at Ofrenda. We were seated right away. The server was super nice and AMAZING! He was funny and attentive. We got the sangria pitcher, guacamole and tacos! Everything was delicious! When we were about to leave they were closing so the server offered complimentary tequila shots! It was perfect. I would definitely come to this place again when I’m in NYC!
