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.

Terrible hostess at front door...quite rude and unwelcoming...she ruined what was otherwise a good experience.

Bartender and waiter were pleasant on other hand but Restaurant should seriously consider replacing the hostess with the bleached blonde hair and crappy attitude.

First and foremost the servers Ashley, Juan and the manager are extremely friendly and very good!! The food and the cocktails are delicious and handcrafted! We love that it’s attached to Dream Downtown in the Meatpacking District ‘ can’t wait to go back again!

Excellent place to eat! The service was great, the staff was so friendly, and the food and drinks were delicious. We had to get to a show on time and the staff made sure we were on time without us feeling rushed. Order the Smoking Scorpion to drink and the Don Huervo for dessert, they were simply amazing. It made for a fun birthday dinner!

Took a while for my eyes to get adjusted with the very dim setting. Would help if they some sort of light source for reading the menu. like a clip on light. I'm 30 years old and I had to turn on the flashlight on my phone read the menu.

Food was phenomenal and our waitress made excellent suggestions and knew both cocktail and dinning menu well.

Great food. Had the delicious chicken tostadas which run on the small side but pack a lot of flavor. The guac was pretty good as well. I liked the diablo cocktail over the old fashioned cocktail. But you can never go wrong with a classic martgarita

Here is my service complaint!
we were given the check without asking for it, while we were half way done with our desserts, (no coffee was offered, Alejandra our server would have a perfect check if she would stick to serve: guacamole, appetizers, entrees, desserts, drinks) my wife was still enjoying a drink, she did order and other cocktail which she never received, we called the manager and told him what just happened, and i said we would like the cocktail and when we would be ready to leave we would ask for the check, he said yes no problem, guess what happened 2 minutes later? We got the check AGAIN, i felt that we was been thrown out! Why ? Our bill was $397 we were spending money. So i did not want to make a scene in the middle of the dining room, i just told my wife lets pay and leave.... the dinning room was half way full at the time this happen.
why would the wait staff treat us like that? Or the manager allow this to happen?

Overall good experience. The Restaurant week menu was better geared for meat eaters. Overall the soft shell crab tacos (small portion) but very tasty and Mexican corn very well seasoned and delicious. Staff was pleasant and accommodating to food allergies and even offered drinks on the house when an error was made on our order.
Ambiance was great and I would come back.

I had to wait for 45 min for my table, after we finally sat and order food, the waiter forgot about us. Terrible service, horrible promoter tables around us that was holding us up. We wanted to order dessert but the waiter never came to take our order, so we just got the check and left. Will never go back there again.

Great food. Really liked the setting. Food was delicious and creative. Service was so so at best. Inattentive, disappeared for stretches of time when we wanted to order more. Just not good.

Will try again but if service repeats last experience will be the last time

Overall had a great time here- we had to wait 45 mins for our table even though we had a reservation. Hostess was just dancing and kept saying she would give us an update but wasn’t providing any details. Manager came over to give us free guacamole for waiting. Waiter Robin was awesome and super nice, all our food was delicious. Would definitely come back again !
