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 Chef Michael Armstrong, as well as a small selection of signature dishes available at the UK location. Chef Armstrong’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.

We had dinner with friends from out of town and their 2 year old daughter. The Food was delicious, the staff was very cordial and attentive. I highly recommend the tuna Ceviche and the soft shell taco. Even My friend‘s two year old loved the fish.

Celebrated my daughters 18th birthday with8 teenage girls!! It’s a Super fun place for these types of occasions s and the wait staff are very friendly, the music is fun and the food is good and shareable. Perfect for a big group particularly if you do t mind hip hop music and a loud environment. Wide range of Mexican fusion.

The only issue we had was having to wait at the bar for our table and the hostess didn’t tell us that she would be texting us when our table was ready.

There was stone pieces in guacamole, it almost broke my tooth. I will get it checked later next week. NY strip was not good, lots of chewy parts.
They were nice enough not to charge the drinks and the guacamole though.

First of all, my reservation was at 10:45 got there on time but I was seated one hour later... we went to th bar and I ordered at $19 “smoking scorpion drink” it was supposed to be served in a open flame but it wasn’t I asked the bartender about the flame he said “not today” so if not today when?? I didn’t like that.. now the food: appetizers were amazing good. The entree I ordered enchiladas were good and my boyfriend ordered carne asada and it was so salty he didn’t finish it. Dessert it was good.

Before 7/730 it had the most appreciated quiet ambiance and then after their was a dj so it had a little party vibe but the music was so great we found ourselves sitting just to hear the music. The huevos ranchos desert was excellent and the chicken dinner entree was excellent.

After reading a ton of negative reviews, the food was way better then I expected. We had the quesadilla rustica, the jalapeño relenos and the honey glazed ribs. Everything was delicious. In my opinion the drinks could have been better. They had several versions of margaritas to choose from (I tried 3) but they all just missed the mark. I’d recommend just sticking with beer. Our sever was knowledgeable and friendly. We ended with the Don Juevo and that was of course the highlight of the meal. Definitely worth going to experience it all at least once!

Fun place, decent Mexican food except for the Red Snapper (disappointing!).....cocktails were the highlight of the evening (the blood orange Paloma with paprika on the rim was my favorite!).....service was okay (3 different waiters!).....got overcharged on my tequila shot ($75!) but manager gave us a break on the bill....great for a girl’s night (lot of women there!)

Weekly Date night with the boyfriend and I chose this place since I hadn’t been. We were bumped from our seating because we were 30 minutes late, which is fine with us. No big deal! We sat at one of the booth tables near the bar, which was also fine with us. The table to seating ratio is way off, so we spent most of our meal leaning over. BF is an architect so he immediately noticed. Anyway, after ordering 2 apps and some drinks, we asked The hostess in the red skirt to waitlist us for an open table. Her attitude was condescending , so we just said ok and stayed where we were. We ordered the steak, some sides and also dessert. Our waitress was very nice, playful and attentive.

Probably won’t be back, but the food was good.

We walked into a hotel lobby first and then through the Bodega Cafe before we realized the actual restaurant was behind 2 large silver colored doors - not so easy to find unless you use another door from the street.

The restaurant was crowded and the ambiance not the best. It is a little dark with not much decor. The food was average - I had chicken which was tender and juicy but nothing special. I expected a lot more as we tried a mac n cheese dish that was noted as a special but ended up being watery and somewhat bland. I had flan for dessert which again was just good, not great. The one bright spot was a friendly and very attentive waiter.

Be aware that the area is crowded and it is difficult to find street parking even on a Wednesday night after 7 pm which is when we went. We ended up in a parking lot across the street from the restaurant and the cost was a whopping $65 for 2 hours!
