Negril Village Ratings and Reviews
I've been here a few times & that is why I'd recommend to a friend. This last visit was not the best. It was the beginning dinner time & they were already out of several items on the menu. What we did order was not as good as we would have liked. While awaiting my daughters return from the restroom I was asked to sit at the bar so that they could seat the next party. I obliged but felt a bit put off by the request. Our waitress was top notch; wish I could recall her name. (She was African American, very short haircut, lots of tattoos)
This is not the place to dine on Sunday if you expect great service & a good overall experience. On Sunday this place is a wanna be fashion show on steroids. The restaurant over compensates by accepting too many reservations for large parties while offering a buffet style dinning experience for walk-ins and smaller parties. This results in very long wait periods for food & service. The kitchen can not handle the capacity of the restaurant offering a brunch menu as well as a buffet option. Food is mediocre at best. Wait staff is friendly and makes attempt to accommodate guests, but the restaurant is managed poorly. Parking lot is too small to handle the scale of business the restaurant accepts. Value is not worth the experience & service you can get at other establishments north of the city. I'd rather drive further north of downtown & pay for a pleasurable experience & great food than go back here to have the horrible experience I had & be charged a mandatory 20% gratuity for it.
We went to celebrate my birthday with friends. Negril Village is a nice facilty but there are a few things they can improve on. First, valet takes way too long, well on a Saturday night. It took us 20 minutes or so to valet. We just ended up pulling in a spot that someone pulled out of.
Our reservation was for 8pm. Because we were delayed with the valet, the hostess wouldn't document that we were all there until everyone was in the building. The bottom level was all full and we were told that a private party was being held upstairs and we will be seated once they leave at 9PM! We finally got seated at 9:30PM which is waaaayyyyy too long.
We ordered drinks and talked while we waited. The drinks are really good. The Rum Punch is EVERYTHING! But once you have waited and hour and a half you are ready to EAT! We were seated upstairs in the loft area. We were not told that the loft had a much smaller menu but oh well we were ready to eat.
We were seated. It took almost 35 minutes for us to get our appetizers and an hour for our food. So mind you we got there at 8pm and we didn't eat until almost 11pm!!! The food was good but I took one bite and was full because I waited too long to eat.
I still recommend just not when it is busy. Maybe earlier during the day and I DONT SUGGEST they have late private parties especially if they are depending on the seating upstairs to fulfill reservations. If you do have a private party they need to be out on time.
Went there after a matinee show at the Fox and the food the ambiance were good. A Caribbean restaurant with Caribbean music playing. Our server Jody was very attentive and on point. I will definitely go back and try a different dish but I throughly enjoyed my oxtails dish. Yummy
I really enjoyed. My only issue is the reservation. We had a reservation for 6 pm and we didn't sit down until 7pm. We were given complimentary rum punch for the long wait. One other thing, in their website, it says that gratuity is added for parties of 6 or more but in the restaurant it says 5 or more. I made my party smaller on purpose and it still didn't work. Other than these concerns, I had a great time and the food was great!
The waiter was excellent. However, the food was lukewarm, but tasty. I had to wait 30 minutes before being seated, despite the fact that I had a reservation. Also, the food was a bit pricey and valet was 15 dollars. This visit will be a once a year visit for me.
The restaurant is in an old fire station. They've done an excellent job turning it into a chic restaurant. Although, the lighting could have been lowered a bit to improve the ambience. Upon arrival, it was a bit chaotic with a large number of patrons waiting to be seated. Even though we had reservations, we had to wait about 20 minutes and was eventually offered a bistro table in the bar area. Since we had tickets to an 8 pm performance at the Fox Theater, we accepted the seating. The food was excellent. Unfortunately, there were several, very loud and disturbing bar patrons nearby. So, we quickly ate and left. We will eat at Negril Village again. We're not sure we will do so on a night when there is a big performance at the Fox Theater.
My past experiences with the food and atmosphere had been great however my 2/17/17, 8pm dinner experience was sub par at best. The good: I had a reservation and was seated promptly which was a positive given the shoulder-to-shoulder crowd standing idle around the entrance. Our hostess was very attentive and on point with her service. The negatives: OMG the live band on the lower level was ridiculous loud! Forget about trying to hold a conversation with anyone, not even the hostess. Just be prepared to sit and stare or holler at each other (seriously). You could even hear the music that was playing upstairs. Is this a club or restaurant at 8pm? This ruined the ambiance for me. The food was eehhh, off and lack luster. I ordered the oxtails as I've done before and it was served rather quickly but COLD! The collard green spring rolls were greasy and bland. For some reason this visit was way off. Maybe because it was busy...I don't know, but for the amount spent there needs to be consistency across the board. It would be great if music was centralized upstairs after a certain time to allow those who want a nice dining experience have one. If I return, and that's a shaky IF, it would be during the week or early dinner, like 6pm.
My husband and I were in from out of state and wanted to try some Caribbean food. The ambience was nice. I did not like that the gratuity was automatically included on our bill for a party of 2 when the menu indicated that gratuity would be applied for parties of 5 or more. Maybe it was because of Valentine's night; but it was not relayed to us. In addition, we waited about 30 minutes for our food. Food was tasty and is worth the try.
This was our first visit to Negril Village. It was everything I expected based on what others had shared. The night would have been perfect had not the owners of the parking lot put a boot on my car. We paid $20 to park. My husband left the parking receipt on the console instead of in the window. We had to pay an additional $10 to have the boots removed. Was extremely angry because we parked right next to the ticket station, and the parking attendant assisted us with the purchase. The parking attendant was apparently on site when enforcement made their rounds and did not vouch for us. Very upsetting. For this alone, my husband says we will not be dining there again.
I come here very often with my girlfriends and I brag about this place everywhere I go. On this particular occasion, I was very upset. We sat for atleast 20 mins before my friend got up to find a waiter. The drinks were pure juice and the food was not Negril standards. It was embarrassing because I had talked so highly of you all and yet a waiter never acknowledged us. No live music and the food was not good. I'm not sure what happened this Saturday but I will not be back.
I made a reservation and arrived 15 minutes before I was scheduled. The place was not busy. I was asked if "bar top" were okay, and I responded with "no, I would like a table"
An older lady that was assisting the younger lady rudely says "No, they are taken."
She was extremely rude and that set the tone for the night. I won't be back.
The pretty young lady at the front was nice, it was the older lady that was assisting her host that ruined it for us.
It is the reason that I am not hosting any events there for my association.
I had an 8 pm reservation, all of my guest were either early or on time , we weren't seated until almost 9 because another patron who was alone was seated at a booth that's for a large party sipping coffee . There was no sense of urgency from the manager Chris non whatsoever. The guy wasn't dining with anyone, he was just lounging around holding up my party . Finally someone ask him to finish up and he grabbed his book bag and left , but the manager tried to lie and say he was waiting on take out, but we were watch that gentleman wasn't waiting on anything . Then once seated, the manger started taking orders then walked away, ended up passing it on to someone else who was not on his job either, he didn't offer beverages or ask to take drink orders, he wasn't pleasant. The manager then tried to smooth things I've with what he said was the "House Champagne" complimentary, and it turned out to be nasty wine , ..they would have came out better giving us appetizers. This was my birthday dinner , I'm turning 35 , and I just had to make the best of it . I had guest that had to leave early because it took so long for us to be seated .. The night didn't go at all as I planned . I've been to negril before and the service was nothing like this , I hate that now I'm not sure if I will return .
Food was great. However, the seating service was not as great. One of the hosts kept coming over and asking if I could move to another table. Given the fact I already had food on the table and was in the middle of dining, I wasn't as pleased with service. Food is delicious but don't expect good service from hosts.
The Valet attendants were very friendly; The restaurant had an issue with their credit card system so the establishment became cash only. Good thing there is an atm nearby. The music was extremely loud. The live band playing at the same time the dj was playing. I'm not sure if the band was just warming up, but it was very hard to hear the conversation at my table (became less and less of talking and more of just looking around ) The food was good, the drinks were strong which I liked. The ambiance was nice.
The jerk chicken was burnt. I went on a separate occasion and the food was awesome. But this time the chicken was burnt. I told the waiter and was told that it didn't look burnt. Smh!!! Then the manager came over and said the same thing. I was ticked off and asked him if he wanted to taste it for himself! Although they didn't handle this very well initially, he ended up not making me pay. So I guess all in all, things were handled. I just did not appreciate them telling me that it didn't look burned when it was clearly really dark. Now mind you, the jerk seasoning does make it appear a bit dark, but this had a bitter,burnt taste to it.
