About

Located in the heart of Midtown Atlanta, Negril Atl promises to entertain your soul as well as your palette in an elegant & classy environment. The latest installment in the Negril chain specializes in Nu Caribbean cuisine or what is dubbed “New York Savvy Caribbean cuisine”. The menu embraces the cooking styles and techniques of destinations such as Trinidad (i.e. Chicken Roti), Puerto Rico (i.e. Empanadas), and of course Jamaica (i.e. Jerk Chicken and Ackee). Set on two levels, the restaurant's décor can be described as warm and elegant. The spacious dining room, on the upper level, boasts hardwood floors and exposed brick walls; while the dining area, on the lower level, warms you with its Spectacular woodwork, cathedral ceilings, and wonderful artwork.

Service, food and ambiance was top shelf, the music in my opinion was way too loud, made it hard to have a conversation at the table.

The food was good. However, the food temp was not hot. The music did not fit the occasion, because it was Valentine's Day. Also, was unaware of the gratuity added to the bill without prior knowledge.

They really need to get a parking deck. The cost to eat dinner there should adjust parking fees. I paid $15 for 1 hr of dinner. I also paid $7 for a bottle of water the waitress made it seem like tab water was not good for you.

When I walked into Negril, it was very beautiful! The staff were amazing! And the manager made sure to stop by our table. It was also cool because when we went Da Brat and her girlfriend was seated behind us.

HOWEVER, this is the first review I’ve ever left and I felt like it needed to be left. The food was not good at all! I am Jamaican and my husband is Guyanese so we expected the food to taste amazing. We were so wrong! We got the Codfish Fritters which wasn’t bad but they didn’t taste like Fritters. I got the jerk Salmon, which I was going back and forth between that and the Saltfish and Ackee. And my husband got curry chicken and roti.

First off, the jerk salmon tasted like those nasty Jerk and ketchup sauce they sell at the grocery store. Then it was on top of this man made mashed sweet potato and I asked to replace the vegetables with plantain. The plantain was the best part of the meal! I had to finish the salmon because I was starving but oh lord was it nasty!

Then my husband got the curry chicken and roti. First off, it wasn’t Roti it was Purry... Purry has peas in it. Which is actually my husband’s fav so that was great. Also, if you are selling curry chicken and roti, it should be chicken breast because you use the roti to pick up the meat. The meat should be off of the bone so it’s easy to eat.

Overall the ambiance and the experience was nice, but the food was extremely disappointing and expensive for how it tasted.

The music was a bit loud and I was not expecting to hear that much American music at a Jamaican restaurant. Also the social distancing was minimal and the service in my opinion was not work the 20 percent gratuity you have to pay. The food however was really good.

Very popular location but this was my first time going. Excited about the food and ambience because I heard great things. My overall experience was good staff was friendly. However the wait for food was long and when it arrived it was luke warm. I will try the place again maybe for brunch.

Overall great food/mimosas and great music - could have been a bit more socially distanced. The front desk girls seemed a little disorganized but overall great experience.

I absolutely loved the atmosphere and the music that was being played once we got in. We ordered jerk wings, oxtail pasta and salmon. Everything was very well seasoned. And our waiter was very nice.

Celebrating my son’s 10th birthday. Music was too loud and inappropriate for 6pm dining. Gratuity is charged on all tables no matter the size of the part. It was nice but their some of their processes and processes takes away from the experience.
