"I loved the zingy atmosphere the most, then the tostaditas, then the feeling of innovation... I'd come again despite the two-hour limit, and I don't say that lightly." READ REVIEW

"All in all, this was as bad as a bad Mexican could be — and let me tell you, I’ve come across some very bad Mexicans. This was such a low-down, ornery, four-flushing, despicable hombre, I wouldn’t be surprised if Eli Wallach was the chef." READ REVIEW

"The food was mostly good. I’ve never had Mexican food that I found especially interesting, and was hoping at best for stuff that tasted like food. And we got that." READ REVIEW

"La Bodega Negra - 'The Black Shop' - is as much of a bar, hangout and nightspot as restaurant. It's also about as Mexican as 'The Three Amigos', and just as full of beans." READ REVIEW

"La Bodega Negra may follow a familiar formula but it refines it ever so slightly. An impressive venue, with great food, drinks, service and location." READ REVIEW
