The decor is definitely gorgeous but the food was average. (Don't get the salt-fish because they obviously dont drain it enough. I mean it's supposed to be salty but come on now, there's only so much sodium a human being can ingest) Also, avoid the breadcrumb dessert. I was recommended that by the waiter but could not finish it because the rum was just too strong giving it a bitter taste. Also, although the service was great, my friend ordered ice cream and they did not tell us it was not coming until we had all finished our desserts, so as a rule of thumb, always check on your food.

The roti and the coconut shrimp. I visited a weeks ago. My friends had hosted a baby shower there and brought me some food after. I was hooked on the coconut shrimp... A few weeks later they invited me for dinner. I loved the Sorrel Colada...then they came with the fish cakes...(like mama used to make)...The chicken roti was better then I expected. I am used to really greasy or really dry roti. This was smothered in a sauce, but not overwhelmed. The chicken was flavorful and juicy. Best I've had...The service could be better, but the food and drinks are worth a little irritation, I think.

It was a surprise to find this nice restaurant in the village, while visiting my sister in NYC. The decor is great, the hostess, very attentive and service terrific. We tried great seafood and a "to die for" bread pudding, in the middle of our dinner we were approached by the manager, he wanted to know what we thought of the food and service, a very kind and corteous gentleman. Next time we visit NY....Negril will be a sure place to visit!

It was my birthday last night and my friends made reservations and planned a suprise dinner at Negril. My friends were there on time but I was late. Because of the restaurant's policy of not seating guests until the entire party arrives, we were waiting for over one hour- which made me late for my birthday party at a club where over 20 pple were waiting. The service is poor! There were two empty tables which took the staff 20-25 minutes to clear before calling us to be seated. The hostess ignored me and walked by me several times when I got up to ask her how much time remained to be seated. I asked for the manager and he was equally unhelpful. Comparing the cost and taste of the food to the service - I would not do it again.

I attended Negril Village for a friend's birthday celebration, and the service was very poor. Negril has a policy that does allow half of a party to be seated, even though a reservation was made. The wait for a table was terribly long and i can see why. When my friends and i finally finshed our meal the waiters took a long time bringing over the check, picking up the check was another fifteen min wait. And then the host would tell you if your waiting to be seated, that " the people who are getting ready to leave arent getting up". It's beacuse service is super slow! The host was very overwhlemed by the bustling atmosphere. The food was good except for anything that had curry. I guess being a Trini, i know what good curry should taste like. Overall I dont think i would be attending this resturant again.

While visiting our daughter at NYU we took her and a roommate to Negril Village. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, but found the service subpar. After we ordered, we waited over 45 minutes for our food. We asked where our order was and the waitress said "Oh, you haven't gotten it yet?" We had our food within minutes of inquiring. When our food came, one order was incorrect, and she seemed quite put out that she had to fix it. If Negril Village could solve their service problems, this would be a great restaurant.

I dined at Negril Village yesterday afternoon w/ my girlfriend. We were greeted by a pleasant gentleman as we ascended the stairs. He escorted us to our table and engaged us in small conversation. After he left us to greet other guests entering the restaurant, we absorbed the lovely decor of Negril Village. The music was great. Not too loud. There was a hum of satisfied diners. Our waiter came by shortly after we were seated and introduced himself and discussed specialty foods/drinks. After he left us to discuss the menu, it took him a long while to come back for drink/appetizer orders (that is my only complaint, but it wasn't enough to keep me away....lol). We ordered the coconut shrimp as an appetizer. It was great, but I've been spoiled by Red Lobster's pineapple dipping sauce. Unfortunately, I had to enjoy the shrimp w/out a dipping sauce, but they were great anyway. My girlfriend ordered curry goat. I ordered the special, stewed chicken breast. I could feel the seasoning dancing in my mouth.....I LOVED THE CHICKEN SOOO MUCH! We both left there w/ a "doggy bag". I can't wait to go back. I enjoyed myself so so much. I implore you to visit this restaurant. I've read the other reviews, some were good some were bad. Fortunately, I had a great experience and I hope you will too. P.S. I've visited Negril Chelsea (W. 23rd) also, back in November '04. It was great, but I liked the ambiance of Negril Village better. It could've been simply the location, but .....GO FOR IT!
