Ofrenda is always a pleasure, a true west village gem with extraordinary food that has never disappointed, cocktails to match, and excellent service overall. Space gets full quickly, so be sure to make a reservation on busy nights.

This is a fabulous place for happy hour and the best guacamole I've had in the Northeast! Their margaritas are fabulous and the house wines for happy hour are decent. I highly recommend the happy hour bites as they are all excellent and the prices are very good.

Please don't go to Ofrenda. I want it to remain "our secret"!!!! :-) Seriously, how often do you find a Village eatery that has wonderful food, fantastic service, great ambiance, and plenty of space? And is affordable and near everything you're downtown for?

We picked this place entirely out of convenience, but I can't say enough about the food, cocktails, and above all, fantastic service. People were SO NICE. I'll be going back often!

After our entrees were ordered, the hostess asked us to move from a nice window table to a cramped table in the back. We asked to for time to chat. As our entrees were placed down, the manager came over and offered to comp an entree and give us dessert or something if we moved. We agreed. They comped the less expensive entree and sent us dessert, initially without giving us a choice. When we did not eat what was sent they came over and gave us a choice. The food was great, but this situation should never have happened.

The food was OK, kinda disappointed as had high expectations due to good reviews and I was celebrating my birthday so that kinda sucked. The guac we ordered was bland...and I usually dont add much salt to my food/when cooking so I feel they didnt add salt at all...fish tacos were just OK. Happy hour is $8 for 2 tacos but I feel $4 for each taco is the standard rate for non HH. The prickly pear margarita was OK, nothing special. Everyone else at the table said their dishes was OK as well (other tacos, chicken mole, enchiladas verdes and branzino) The only thing that was great was the staff and service. Most likely wont be coming back as theyre are better mexican places in tbe city.

Despite living in the neighborhood and frequenting clubs nearby, this was my first visit to Ofrenda, and I was pleased with the food and friendly service. The noise level, however, is extremely high; it was so loud that it was difficult to hear my dinner partner over the din. Many New York restaurants are noisy, but this was one of the noisiest I've ever been to. I'd go back for the food, but probably only with a large crowd planning to drink and ready to shout at each other during the meal to be heard.

From the hostess that always tries to accommodate last minute changes to our server who had margaritas in our hands and watched to ensure everyone was enjoying the meal. The Fish Tacos are amazing as are the Margaritas. I would highly recommend this neighborhood Gem

Disappointed.

This was my second trip - last time was decent.

Good was lackluster and uninspired. Service was awkward. A pregnant friend felt underserved by the menu.

Food was all ok but nothing to write home about. And a Cheque north of 200$ for 4, for such standard fare, almost insulting.

Never again

Ofrenda was a deep pleasure. Complete from the best guacamole we've ever had (and we have a ton of it) to a sensational jalapeño margarita to 3 well-balanced, seasoned entrees (Enchiladas Verdes and the octopus dish were especially outstanding) to attentive, caring service, it was a 5-star night from start to finish for a very reasonable cost. Can't wait to return!

Hostess was so unprofessional and rude. We arrived slightly before 6 pm on Saturday, so she gave us happy hour menu. At 6 pm we requested to the waiter the dinner menu, which he kindly gave us. The hostess came and just snatched the menu from our hands, saying "We don't serve that menu " (not a "I apologize but....", nada... just snatched it out from behind). We asked for the check because we just wanted to have dinner, not only drinks and guacamole. However the waiter then told us that they DID serve dinner menu. So they had a small discussion where bar tender, kitchen guys and waiters told the hostess that they DID serve diner. Hostess did not even come back to offer an apology, she just laughed, while the waiter brought back the dinner menu.
Food was good though. We had octopus which was very soft and queso fundido with huitlacoche was also good.

Great spot for cocktails and small bites. Even if you go to happy hour do not limit yourself to just the specially priced margs. Definitely try a cocktail off their regular menu. A little more expensive but very well worth it.

:( Ofrenda me decepciono - it was very disappointing. This was my first and will be my last time dining here. This is clearly a neglected restaurant. How it got a Michelin recommendation is beyond me. It does not deserve any positive accolade and has only room for improvement in every category. The acoustics are horrible, even on a not too busy night, my friend I had to scream over each other (we are in our 30s). The waiter didn't come by once during the meal to check-in on us. Had he bothered to ask how the food was, I would have told him that I make better watermelon salads at home on a weeknight. In my sleep. Blindfolded. At the corner deli... The salad was not properly dressed. Some parts had no dressing. How can you mess up a watermelon and feta salad?? For the entree, I got the Chile Rellenos with quinoa. It was fine but nothing special. The side salad that came with it was inedible, it was overloaded with salt and something pickled or vinegar. I asked my friend to try it, and she agreed. Inedible. The only person even remotely interested in how our food was was the runner, who I asked to pass on the message to the chef so that they could hopefully not ruin other people's dinners too. Ofrenda owners if you are reading this, you are ruining your restaurant. Ofrenda desperately needs your attention to get things back on track. :(

So, so deliscious. Fish tacos are the best. Fresh white fish with perfect complement of sauces and cabbage. We dined for the second time this month and it was just as good as the first time. I recommend the cerviche tostada -- very fresh and tasty. The place is so popular that the noise level becomes overwhelmingly loud. But that is to be expected because all are enjoying it so much. It is a fantastic place to meet friends, enjoy some drinks and tacos. The restaurant is always attentive to reservations which is very much appreciated.
