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.

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!

I would recommend Bodega Negra for its food but the service was horrible! I made a reservation for 9:45pm but was not seated until 10:40pm. Also, we waited literally 30 mins to get our check. There was a lot of waiting involved and the service was slow. You're better off doing take out because the food is actually really good.

I had a birthday celebration in this restaurant. To be honest, everything was great. The service was fantastic, the food was delicious and the price is reasonable. The environment of the restaurant was comfortable and smooth. The soft crap tacos and lobster tostadas are highly recommended. Will return for sure!!!

Went here for a date and it was a bad idea. The music was super loud, the food was extremely moderate. It was not worth the $200 spent. Its like an overrated apple bees. Do not recommend.

I decided to celebrate my birthday here for restaurant week and I’m glad I did. The waiter was so helpful and friendly in helping my sister and I in what to order and what dishes out of the menu was the best. On top of that the music was amazing, it wasn’t too loud that it was hard to enjoy a conversation at your table but good enough to have something to listen to while eating. I would definitely go here again.
