Contemporary Mexican
A partnership between TAO Group, Serge Becker (Miss Lily’s, La Esquina) and his UK partners, Will Ricker and Ed Spencer Churchill, Bodega Negra has crossed the pond, bringing its menu of modern Mexican fare to New York City’s Dream Downtown.

The menu consists of original items created by Brad Warner, as well as a small selection of signature dishes available at the UK location. Brad Warner’s menu draws inspiration from the diverse regions of Mexico, and is designed for sharing, ranging from small plates such as ceviches, tacos, and salads, to large-format offerings.

Food, Ambiance and Value was great but the service was okay. We usually go all the time and this is the only time I haven't gotten the usual service. I still would highly recommend this place, guess someone just wasn't having a great night.

If you are hungry, I suggest you go elsewhere. The plates are extremely small. I ordered the fajitas plate and there were only 4 pieces of steak, everything else was vegetables. My friend ordered the steak and in three bites, it was gone. We waited a long time for drinks even though we were sitting near the bar and the restaurant was pretty empty. Wouldn’t go again.

For beginners we walked in 15 minutes late,due to traffic, and were told immediately that our table would be given away at 9pm;the noise was unbearable, two speakers over our heads blasting;the waitress screeching voice in trying to explain the menu;we ordered steak for (5) and were not told side dishes were extra,and were charged for (2) extra dishes per person x 5 guests; we had a table full of the same side dishes, bringing the price of steak to $45: outrageous; we asked for a booth for (6) if this was not possible we should of been told and not given a booth for 4 with a small table added on the side for the additional (2) guests, which we could barely communicate with because the were so far away from the rest of us. Our total bill was $700...not cheap, for a horrible introduction,mediocre dinner,outrageous loud noise, and lousy set up of our table. Our guests were VIP's, and could not wait to leave.

Service was quite poor and it was not even that busy, we had to chase down our waiter a few times. They also do not know how to make a spicy drink. I asked for a spicy margarita and spicy paloma, which neither of them were spicy. The food was pretty good, designed well and what you'd expect. The melting Don Huevo dessert was entertaining! Good vibes for a birthday celebration if you're going out with friends, everyone was dressed for the nightclub scene for after dinner which the restaurant is connected to.

Even with the busy atmosphere we were treated well. Decor nice. Hip hop music we loved. We brought our kids for a 9:15 Friday night and it was very fun for all of us. We are the type of family that brings our kids out to enjoy live with us. We definitely we go back and we already told our friends. Food was great too. Everything was great. Drinks food decor music everything!
