About Negril Village
Located in the heart of Greenwich Village, Negril Village promises to entertain your soul as well as your palette in a hip & 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. Island Paella), and of course Jamaica (i.e. Jerk Chicken and Ackee). Set on two levels, the restaurants décor can be described as contemporary yet natural. The spacious dining room, on the upper level, boasts bamboo floors and seashell lined walls; while the Rhum lounge, on the lower level, warms you with its raisin interior, red lacquer floors, and in-house DJ. Live Reggae, Calypso, and Latin bands will further enchant you as you sip one of Negril Village’s many tropical drinks.

Negril Village Ratings and Reviews
The food and the atmosphere was amazing went for a family dinner (my brother and his wife took my uncle and I )and had a wonderful time. Can't wait to go again for a girl's night out. Two thumbs up!! Love the decor it was warm and inviting and cozy at the same time.
Arrived at Negril; staff was friendly and seated me in the preference of my choice. It was a rainy day, and my very 1st visit there. Tamika, brought samples of signature drinks; i went with the rum punch; which was brought by a very nice young man named Dominick. He was also our server. Disappointed by the cornbread, cold, very small, no taste. Although, i did eat the butter the cornbread came with; with the codfish fritters which were delicious!!! I also loved the avocado mousse. When entrees came out I was once again dissappointed; the portion size was small/ does nearly measure to the price we had to pay. BAILEYS COFFEE/RUM; MAJOR HOME RUN!!!!!!!!!!! LOVED IT!!!!! DID NOT CARE FOR BREAD PUDDING/RUM RAISAN ICE CREAM DESSERT; GAVE IT TO MY FRIEND. Know rents in NYC, R PRICEY; but try to at least give customers a little more; and improve on quality of taste in the dishes i disliked. Overall; i would visit again. Ambience /music, GREAT!!!!
Negril has always been known for its lively atmosphere, strong drinks and good food, although I always thought the food was a bit overpriced for the value. This was my first time dining here in almost 10 years and not much has changed. I had a reservation, arrived a few min early but still had to wait 10 min for my table. The staff at Negril were always a bit unorganized.
Our waiter was pretty attentive and very polite, despite the number of tables he had. I ordered the shrimp and grits and a dark and stormy cocktail. My entree was good, not great and definitely not worth $26. My cocktail was perfect; I wanted to order their famous rum punch, but I was afraid it would he too strong and I had plans afterwards.
Overall, it was a decent dining experience, but I am not rushing to return. Also, they have a lounge downstairs which should be free for those who order dinner, but unfortunately they still charge you and the place is a sweatbox.
We enjoyed our New Year's Eve dinner at Negril. The room we sat in was a bit dark and gloomy for a Caribbean restaurant at New Year's, but as time went on, the food and happy families celebrating more than made up for it. We started with the ackee tostones and cod fritters, all very tasty, especially after a squeeze of lime. The mac& cheese was fine, if a bit dry. Our main courses, spicy, briny seafood Creole, luscious goat curry, shrimp and grits, jerk chicken all delicious. Well seasoned rice and peas and stewed collards/ cabbage accompanied. For dessert, we had a lovely, buttery bread pudding, spicy, gingerbread-like black cake, and an unusually flavorful and moist version of red velvet cake. Our server, Linden was quiet and efficient on the whole. He apologized for our drinks coming after our appetizers, and brought us a complimentary colada. This was nice, but the drinks were a bit sweet for our taste.To note: tip is included and getting to basement bathroom is a bit treacherous. On the whole, we had a great time, and I look forward to coming here again soon.
This was my first time here and my experience was amazing. The jerk chicken was cooked really good. I had the rum infused salmon which was really good. I enjoyed the whipped sweet potatoes, the steam broccoli was cooked really well. I tried my friend’s Jerk steak which was good really well. I also tried her Mac and cheese which could of used some more salt, but overall it was good. Our waiter only checked on us once, and he seemed to be all over the place. It took awhile for us to receive our check and then took awhile for it to be picked up. Afterwards the waiter did apologize for not being attentive, he said one of his parties tried to run out in the check (i felt really bad for him. I didn’t know ppl still did that). Overall i had a really good time. I’ll definitely be back.
Ok where do I start, it was my wife birthday. The first thing we was told the heat wasn’t working, so the place was cold. Next we ordered the appetizer sampler and asked for extra nachos chips and was told we couldn’t get anymore. Next we ordered 2 coconut rum drinks, my wife didn’t like her drink because it was too strong. She wanted a new drink but was told she would be charge for a new drink so they watered down her drink to make it weaker. After that when she went to the bathroom with my daughter you have to walk through part of the kitchen and then down a staircase to the basement. While walking down the steps she slipped and broke her heel on her shoe and bruised her buttock from the fall. The manager was advised about the fall and said he will tell the owner. Today is 12/15/17, the time is 5:06pm, and we still haven’t heard from the restaurant to see if my wife is okay. I can not recommend this restaurant.
The romantic yet vibrant ambiance is perfect. The food is perfect, full of flavor and overall beyond satisfying. We went on a random Monday night, got some drinks with our food and was pleased. I can just imagine how great it is on a Friday or Saturday night.
Always have the best time at Negril! Had some yard food (dasheen, green banana and dumpling) with saltfish, homemade ginger beer and THE best banana pudding I've had anywhere.:) I'm from Dominica so this is the closest I can get to nostalgic home food in a restaurant in NY.
