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.

Waited over an hour for a table with a reservation-this is the third time this has happened. The hostess told me there would be no charge for appetizers as a courtesy for the tremendous wait. When we received the check we were charged for everything.
Service was terrible waited for the waiter to place order and to get the check.

Horrible service ! We literally sat there for 30 minutes and no one came to take out order so I called a manger and he took our order but after that the server never came back to check on us . I had to ask the cleaning people to get my server for me so I get my check .
Good food ; horrible service

The music was WAY TOO LOUD. Asked to lower it twice. Employees were dancing around enjoying themselves. I understand but not in front of customers. Shrimp was over cooked. It's pricy for what it is. The beef tacos were good.

It was 5 of us, we had a reservation and were greeted by the host and were immediately seated, that’s was ok. The appetizers came before our drinks, we weren’t done with our appetizers when the entrees came, so we couldn’t finish. I don’t like the rush in the way they service the food. But the most important event came afterwards, the candle behind us lighted up in fire, the wood next to it lighted too! Smoke stared coming! We were screaming to get someone’s attention and they took so long, I ended grabbing the water bottle to kill the fire, meanwhile this all happened right in front of the DJ, he told said to us “oh you should tell someone!” then left his booth, I couldn’t believe it! Common you work here do something yourself! Then afterwards the manager came and say thank you, send cheap Mexican hats and desserts. I prevented the fire to get worse you should’ve taking care of our bill!
The entree tacos are miniatures more like an appetizers portion than an entree, there is way better upscale Mexican restaurants around, don’t waste your time.

We LOVE this place! The service is wonderful. The food is sooo good. We went for my birthday 3 weeks ago, and then we just went again for my sister's birthday this weekend. You may eat and then hang out in the bar area with your party. There is a bar area in the hotel lobby that is like a little party/club vibe. The bar area inside the restaurant was more intimate and cozy. I do think they need to do a better job with the drinks. Their drinks are weak! Too weak for a restaurant of this caliber. So, when we just went again, we stuck to wine and tequila shots. I still give it an outstanding review because I just love it here so much.

Went out with another couple for dinner. We were 30 minutes late for our reservation ( 1 couple arrived on time and informed the hostess), we were seated once the entire group arrived. Food was excellent, service was good, noise level was so high that we couldn’t hear ourselves speak, restaurant was playing very loud music. This place is huge, warehouse size and wasn’t packed. However, at 9 pm, the hostess informed us that our table was reserved for another group at 9 and we had to leave. She offered we have dessert in the lounge, we declined. I️ understand that we were late, but they had other tables free at 9, they could have seated the next group on the lounge with complimentary drinks and let us finish our dining, we had ordered dessert and then told we had to go. It would have taken another 15 minutes at most for us to be done. Not coming back...dropped $400 for 4 people and were asked politely to get the hell out.

This place is SO overpriced for what it is. The food is OK. Most of ours came to the table cold. Two tiny tacos are $20??? We were laughing because the waiter said all the food was meant to share, then these tiny portions come out. And even if it had been hot, it wasn't very tasty - alot of it bland, which was so disappointing. The cocktails were very good, which for $18 each, they should be.

If you want a great Mexican meal, skip it. So many other great places in the neighborhood that serve terrific food and drinks for less money.
