The food is amazing!


Went there to celebrate a friends birthday on a Saturday night. Got there at 11:40pm for midnight reservation, wasn't seated until 12:45am and didn't get our food until almost 2:0...

Good Time 4/20/2010

Went for a birthday celebration, my own actually. Seated promptly upon arrival. Wait staff was very good. Our appetizers came promptly and were excellent. Highly recommend the codfish fritters and jerk shrimp. Entrees were good too. Ox tails, snapper, stew chicken - all good. No complaints at the table. And the drinks, lets just say there were a few rounds. LOL. The prices are Village prices, if you want cheaper, you should stay in the outer boros. Will go back anytime. Maybe next time, will sit in the Lounge. Pros: Good Drinks, Atmosphere Cons: Journey to Ladies Room more

Could be better, but nice experience 2/8/2010

I like the service and atmosphere of Negril but I am not a fan of the food in the restaurant portion. I normally go to the lounge section downstairs and order appetizers. The combo platter is good and so are their beverage selections! I say you're better off in the lounge area if you want to visit Negril Village. Pros: Service; Atmosphere; Rhum Lounge Cons: The food isn't that great more

What Was the Hype About? 12/27/2009

Went here for the first time for 2009 Christmas Dinner with my boyfriend. Immediatly got a seat because it was half empty due to the heavy rain. Server was VERY nice and courteous. I myself am Jamaican so I was expecting a real caribbean atmosphere, instead we were pegged upstairs near the loudest Jamaican men ever, words cant describe how loud they were, Not one employee asked them to tone it down. But the place has a great ambience of dim lights and reggae music. The food was pretty regular if you ask me, nothing I couldnt get right on Church Ave. in Brooklyn, Lets be reasonable here, $22 for some oxtail? The appetizers were good though, We had some Codfish fritters and Mango BBQ Wings. What I didn't like was the small portions and slow service, the waiter would move in a semi circle motion thru tables, like a stop; So if one table stopped him, we had to continually wait, since we were the last table. Also took forever just to get our food then the bill. The food was dry and not very exciting, nothing I intended on waiting so long for. Also the bathroom thing is a bit weird too, you have to walk thru the kitchen which was very weird. I would say this place is good for anyone new to Caribbean food, a Tourist or just an after work drink. If it hadnt been for the waiter, this place wouldve gotten two stars, But if your looking for ambience, this place has it. Pros: Fast Seating, Good Service Cons: Bland Food, Prices, Long Wait more

Great place to WAIT! 12/13/2009

Went there to celebrate a friends birthday on a Saturday night. Got there at 11:40pm for midnight reservation, wasn't seated until 12:45am and didn't get our food until almost 2:00am. The food was good but definitely not worth the wait or the price. $25 for 2 drinks -> they were good but ""c'mon son!"" And you have to walk through the kitchen to get to the bathroom, made random. Pros: Food, ambience, and drinks Cons: Wait time, more

Our favorite 9/8/2009

My wife & I have been coming to Negril for a few years from NJ. We celebrate every occasion from Birthdays to Anniversaries. Tonight we celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary & the food & ambiance were great. more

Great time 6/26/2009

I had a dinner party for 13 people last week. We were late and we were told that there would be a long wait to so they seated us in the lounge. I heard the lounge was really loud so I wasnt pleased but knew there was nothing I could do since we were late. \r To my delight the lounge was the best move for us. There wasnt that many people down there when we arrived so we got exceptional service. The food was great, the music was great and after we ate, everyone was able to get up and dance. We went at 8pm at 11pm before it got really crowded. Great place for a dinner party. Just so you know if you bring a cake there is a $15 fee which is very reasonable. Pros: food, service, music more

terrible food. great everything else 12/10/2008

Food= an utter disappointment, I was suprised to see that there are actually west indians in the kitchen cooking. I had the lamb first and sent it back, it was dry and flavorless. Then I had oxtails which were standard, nothing special at all. Then the next time I had the jer k shrimp with macaroni and cheese and garlic steamed vegetables. The jer k shrimp was only 5 shrimp, the shrimp were char grilled and too hot. I love spicy food, but this was the painful type of spicy where you dont even enjoy the food. I had to scrape off the layers of jer k seasoning on it. The macaroni and cheese is dry and dull. The garlic veggies tasted like the veggies you steam in the bag at home, and there was no garlic whatsoever. My gma orderd a seafood roti and it was beautiful but it tasted like the chef dropped a box of salt in it. I could go on for days but I wont.\r Music= great, very engaging. we all stood up and danced and sang, the band is GREAT\r Atmosphere= great vibe I really like it\r Wait Staff= excellent, they cleared the table after everything we ate and were very attentive. Im a waitress and I took some pointers from her on how to improve my service\r Nice bathroom, with the mouthwash and mints etc. Pros: music and atmosphere, great drinks Cons: the food more

Great time after all 12/1/2008

I held my 30th birthday party here in Sept 08 and it turned out beautifully. I found Liz, the event planner, difficult to work with but luckly I didn't have to deal with her on the actual night of the event. Everyone was extremely nice and super helpful. The staff was attentive and made sure my 25 guests and I had a great time. The food and service was excellent considering it was big group. My celebration continued at the Rhum Lounge downstairs and again the service was top-notch. It seemed like the dj was experimenting which was annoying but we made the best of it and had a great time. more

amazing experience 6/20/2008

loved negril! the waitress was very helpful in recommending and describing drinks and meals. i tried goat stew for the first time and it was amazing i cant wait to go back Pros: great service, great food, great ambiance Cons: bathroom is all the way downstairs more

OUTSTANDING SERVICE, Great food (in the lounge area) 4/29/2008

The following was an email that I wrote to the catering manager. I bought a package that catered to twenty-five people which included appetizers, one bottle of Moet and one bottle of liqour for my cousin's bday:\r \r I would like to thank you for the outstanding service that was provided to my group on the night of ****. Everyone complimented the food so much and the waiter was amazing and catered to everyone's need that night. The bartender ****was amazing, as well! I really do appreciate this and can't wait to do business in the future with you again. We had such a great time! Thanks alot!\r \r Pros: No waiting time (for the lounge area), delicious exotic appetizers, outstanding service Cons: Parking is crazy, coat check in, expensive drinks more

Best lounge, best service, best fun 4/29/2008

I really had a great time this past weekend. I had my birthday party at the Negril Village. I used their lounge and services. Everything was absolutely wonderful. I had the best service. From the planning down to the every little details was taken care of. My event planner Liz was amazing. She made sure that I had the best. Then my waiter word hot and best...(okay two words). The entire staff was just wonderful. Even though some of my guest were late, everything went smoothly. The DJ was on point too. \r I will recommend this place to any one in need of a good time. Eliminate stress by getting one of the packages. The environment was cozy and sophisticated. Also the bathrooms were kept the entire night....\r Thank you guys...I had a blast and will definitely come back soon. Pros: Elimnate stress by ordering the package Cons: I did not know that additional bottle would cost me the same amount as the table service:( more

Good food, terrible atmosphere, awesome wait staff 2/2/2008

I'd have to agree with most of the postings on city search----the hostess is horrendous. Rude, impatient and hostile----though the host was more accommodating and friendly. Our wait staff more than made up for it---our bus boy and our waiter were welcoming and attentive. The food, of course, is why we went---and it definitely lived up to our expectations. I was expecting the Roti to be dry, but was pleasantly surprised. Our drinks were tasty and the background music was just right. The crowd left something to be desired---especially in the crowded waiting space---people should really think before they speak, but I guess management can't really control that. I'd go back---but probably during the week on an off night. more

Poor management (esp. the stank hostess), great atmosphere! 12/30/2007

The food at Negril is pretty good but the management is the WORST! The hostess....tall, slim, with a blunt bob, is rude, unfriendly, unhelpful, and she usually seems exasperated. If you've been a few times, then you know who I mean. Negril should hire someone that can better handle the stress of a high volume restaurant.\r \r The restaurant is equiped to handle large groups (in terms of size and atmosphere), the mangagement is NOT. I have been numerous times, with and without reservations. If you attend with a group,make sure that everyone arrives on time (take the limited parking and unpredicatable traffic into consideration). They absolutely will not seat you if members of your party are missing. There is no waiting area, so your entire party will have to wait in a tight space. If you arrive on time, expect to wait a bit anyway.\r \r The cocktails are very great, and if you know the right night to go, the downstairs lounge is fun... Despite the con's, I still recommend it. The music, food, drinks, are original.... Pros: drinks, ambiance, food Cons: MANAGEMENT more

This palce is great 12/9/2007

I have been to this restaurant on multiple occasions and I love it. I am guaranteed a good meal great drinks and a beautiful ambiance. I love the white wine sangria and the mohito's. I go through cravings for their jerkshrimp, mac&cheese and negril nacho's. The only thing is that sometimes, you may have to wait a bit if you do not have reservations. Pros: Good food and drinks Cons: Might have to wait if you do not have reservations, Must like spicy food more

Just avoid this place 11/24/2007

The service is atrocious, the food took forever and the waitress (Natalie) left for at least 15 minutes with my card. When she finally came back she charged me $809 for tips while dinner for two was only $71. I brought it up to her attention and sent her back to fix it. She finally came back with the right amount but still managed to ring my card for $881. Unfortunately, I didn't find out until 3 days later and when I called them to alert them they were making me jump through hoops before they finally credited me for that amount. Overall, the food was ok but it seems like no one there knew what they were doing. Pros: location Cons: service more
