Negril Village was a very nice setting for my husbands birthday dinner. It can be intimate but you can also go there with friends and enjoy. The food was way better then i expected, and the service was wonderful. The waiter I had was very kind and cared a lot about how everything taste, he made sure we did not have to call upon him. Kudos to Negril definitely will be visiting again.

Made a 1:00 PM reservation for my birthday to have brunch. Arrived at 12:50 and was seated by 12:55. Ordered a carafe of the guava bellini and decided to skip the app and order the main course for which the order was submitted at 1:05.
After 30 minutes I checked with our waiter on the ETA as my wife and I had run out of conversation and were surprised that the food had not arrived to our table.
I asked to speak with the manager on duty and when she came and I explained my concern that my wife and I had been waiting 50 minutes now for our order and inquired if there was an issue in the kitchen.
She immediately became defensive and said “I can get you your food now but I can’t do that if I’m here talking to you”, I looked around the lower level where larger parties that had arrived 20-30 minutes after I had places my order had received their food and were eating. I pointed this out to the manager to which her response was “ you are on a 1 hour bill” I told her to come with me as there were two other tables seated in close proximity to us who also has been waiting for 30-40 mins and had not received their meals either.
She responded by asking me if I wanted to cancel my order or let her go back to the kitchen and get my order. I asked her why it had taken so long for her to recognize and address the issue, again her response was do I want to cancel my order.

I told the manager that her response was inappropriate and quite possibly the worst response from any manager I have heard.

I went to settle my bill at the bar but was told that I didn’t owe anything. After this nightmare event we went to Del Frisco’s Grille and had a wonderful meal.

I have dined at Negril Village over the past 15 years and have never had such a horrible experience or encountered a manager who was so incompetent and unprofessional. Needless to say that I will not return to this establishment.

The experience was good, as well as the food, however I did not like receiving an email from open table that I was a no show for my reservation. That is incorrect. Please do a better job at checking in your guests.

Gabriel is the BEST WAITER there, he’s very attentive. I’ve been to Negril 5 times and he’s been my waiter 3 times and the service is stupendous. Even when he’s not my designated waiter he makes sure everything is okay.

Second time dining there, this time was terrible. Firstly I must say the food was divine. I dined in the lounge as opposed to the restaurant. I understand that it's one of their busiest evenings, but with that said it seemed as if the server completely forgot that he had our table. After I basically had to reach out and touch him to get his attention, it took us another hour before we got our order. My advice unless you're definitely not in a rush to be fed or even slightly hungry don't visit here on a Saturday night.

Apart from people talking over the music my experiences have always been great and the food is always delightful. The drinks, well let’s just say you have to eat so the food soak up the after effect if you choose to indulge in a cocktail or two or more 🤪. The staff is amazing; pleasant and respectful eyecandy for the ladies 🤤😊
I visit every year for my birthday. This year I went twice.

Crowd was dressed very casual. I expected a dress code which was a standard as of last year . The noise level drowned out any possible conversation. The table that i requested was not available. Perhaps staff called out that night, service was slow.

They add gratuity which is a practice that I am not a fan of because sometimes the server doesn’t provide as much attention I feel. Considering the food is great, the host was amazing and I’ve been coming here for over 10 years I deal.

Restaurant seemed to still be opening when we arrived for a 12pm brunch reservation. Waited about 15minutes to be seated. Menu and food were exceptional, but service was a little slow. A DJ was starting to spin club music around 2pm.

The food was delicious and nice ambiance. I ordered the jerk salmon with rice and peas. My only complaint with the food is the portion size, which is on the smaller side. My date ended up ordering an appetizer after his meal because he was not satisfied with the portion. We headed to Rum Lounge downstairs after dinner. I was a bit turned off by being told it was a 20 dollar cover when the website says 10 dollars and upon arrival we were told 10 dollars. After spending nearly 200 dollars for two for dinner I would think the lounge would be complimentary. They did end up charging us the 10 pp instead of 20 otherwise we were leaving.

I used to come to Negril and they used to give you a good amount of food & I would always need to take to go boxes. The food used to be soooo good. You can tell they may have new owners now . I got mixed veggies instead of cabbage and my mixed veggies had an apple slice in it? Lmao. I could have stayed in my town and ordered Jamaican food.
