There wasn’t any chicken or lamb left so we didn’t have any choice but to both have the belly pork as main. The sides arrived and about 5 minutes late we got 2 pork tacos delivered as main ( which is a starter dish). They gave as the pork tacos on the house and took the sides to keep them warm in the kitchen. When the belly pork finally arrived, the sides came straight after except for the potatoes which I had to remind the waitress about. Sadly the potatoes were uncooked. We told them and they changed the dish for more uncooked potatoes. We got a discount on the bill however there were way too many mistakes for us to consider going back again.
Visited 2 times. Food is tasty and value for money but too loud and too cramped. Tables were so close you felt part of the other diners guests and I had to keep moving myself to avoid getting elbowed in the head by the waiter anytime he attended the next table, or knocked out my chair by people trying to squeeze past my table. Acoustics are terrible. Myself and my friend gave up trying to talk to each other and left for dessert elsewhere. All Staff were friendly. I would like to give it more stars but I can’t and won’t go back. Even in a group it’s too loud.
We were so looking forward to our booking.
Really disappointed that a lovely black wrap left at our table and a F1 baseball cap both have not made it to lost property after a table for 2 on Weds eve after various phone calls yday and today. Both items are black and the enthusiastic meet n greet at the door took our coats from us and we kept our accessories with us. Its so dark in the basement eating area we and the guests next to us could only read the menu with our phone torches. We think this is how we left our items behind.
2 of us 2 bottles wine/ selection of dishes /2 hour table slot (which makes you feel under time pressure) = £176.
Overall cost so much more with the lost items.
They would not have been seen the items until lights up so presume they have been taken.
We took some friends from out of town and they and is were blown away by the welcome, the service (perfect thx), the food and the atmosphere. Was just perfect.
A great place for date night!
I always love visiting La Bodega Negra! I always bring friend when visiting London and everyone is always amazed by the restaurant. Lovely atmosphere, amazing food and friendly and polite staff. Perfect place to go for a dinner during the weekend.
I will definitely be back again soon.
Great experience that starts before you even walk through the door. Lovely hostess and they still keep you guessing if you really are in the right place when you first enter. Waitress was very helpful and we were all impressed with the food. We had the guacamole which was freshly made the pork belly tacos and soft shell crab tacos and the octopus to start which were all delicious. The mains were also really nice. Would come back again. Thank you.
Went with a group of friends. A large group generally a cumbersome proposition for most venues but the staff worked with us to get a result and ensure a good experience. Great food and vibes too.
Food was good but waitress missed the side I ordered and restaurant was a little cramped
Good food good service, always a pleasure . The food was served really quickly, even if the restaurant was full
Too expensive for what it was. The ambience was nice but the portions are very small and not worth the price you pay.
Great place, food was superb great service a small restaurant with a big personality, the ambience and decor was great with a real twist to a standard restaurant.
La Bodega Negra is an interesting spot for dinner - you’ll know what I mean if you’ve ever been there! The food was so so but the atmosphere was fun.
Unlike most restaurants, you don't expect to find out behind the darkened windows of a step club. However upon entering, and after questioning whether you've got the right place, you make it to a great area for a bite to eat. With more tequilas and mezcals than you could ever imagine, you're sure to have a great time here.
The service was good, with the server suggesting favourites whenever stuck. You'll havea great time here!
Great food, great atmosphere and great service. I always come back here when I’m in the area and always bring new people. Never disappointed
The local is nice and the food is good, although quantities are poor. The service was not really good honestly.
One of my fav resturants in London. The atmosphere is unique as the food and the service. 100% recommend.
Wasn’t expecting the front of the restaurant it certainly created a talking point, once in the place is awesome, food awesome, staff super attentive and great value would go back again and again and again...
Table was 30 min late and restaurant was very packed. Good food and drinks. Bar was however way too crowded
Lovely food, lovely place, expensive, but worth it. The cocktails are amazing!
I took my boyfriend for his first time in London. It was very crowded but it was an exciting lively vibe! (Bearing in mind this was on a Friday night). If you want to eat there on a Friday or Saturday make sure you book in advance!
Great night out place with friends. Good fun along with great drink and food.
We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the staff is consistently great and friendly
The music though was way too loud
It’s not something I would normally complain about but it was that extra loud so that it made it difficult to hear people at my table trying to talk to me. Music is ok though and I knew it was going to be an energetic type of place
I just think it could be slightly less high in volume. Overall we loved it and we will go back
Had a fabulous evening , the bar staff were especially good
Our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive to us, food was excellent and a good variety to chose from.
Food was great but overpriced. Ambience is good
Everything was great except at the cocktail bar, the bartender was very dismissive, didn’t prepare the drinks properly and made quite a fuss when told the service wasn’t good.
Our waitress on the food area, on the other hand, was AMAZING! Ana was attentive, fun and very knowledgeable- would recommend her and the food hands down!
This place is a lovely “hidden” gem. The facade of the sex shop definitely masks what lies beneath. Food was lovely. Would like more veggie options though. Would visit again!
A fantastic recommendation, great vibe. Menu is quite limiting, but the food is delicious.
Food was delicious and service was really excellent - prompt, friendly and personalised
Awesome. Nice tequilas. Starters to share. A delicious experiencie. Worthfull.
Brilliant food, great atmosphere, staff were amazing
This restaurant is amazing.. if your looking for something different you should go... The staff are lovely and friendly.
Very good, great food, great service and great ambience. Will certainly come back again!
Amazing place, great drinks and food was awesome. Staff was so friendly.
Had a fabulous and super fun night here (Saturday) really super staff. Watch the G&T they are doubles. Food was excellent as were wine and cocktails. Amazing atmosphere.
Nice restaurant, good food, just a bit dark and slightly noisy at times, but we'll worth a visit ☺️
Well worth visiting. You need to book in advance and getting a table late at the weekend is recommended. Great atmosphere, good food and fantastic service (thanks Islam and Christina). Will be back!
Having been here a few times and always enjoyed it, my last visit was really disappointing, forgot parts of our order, forgot drinks, bar staff miserable, rude particularly the dark haired guy with his hair in a little pony ontop of his head with the beard absolutely foul! If you're not a people person seriously don't work behind a bar in a busy part of London! Such a shame as previously enjoyed it most probably won't go back again... when you're paying over the odds for food and cocktails a smile wouldn't go amiss..,
The atmosphere is great as always, but this time some of our choices were quite poor.
The octopus too dry and tasteless, flat and unexciting. The duck was dry too and same here, nothing exciting and definitely overpriced for value.
The service was good and friendly, but too focused on upselling drinks, which can be annoying at times.
