    You come to Ariba for the view first - it is facing the Rogers Center. The service is good. We've not been here when there's a game since it will be busy and a bit crazy and loud. We've been here when there were no games and it's quiet and good for meetings.

    Went to Arriba on a Sunday for lunch and to watch the Blue Jays game. We were greeted by friendly staff and given a table right by the windows with a great view of the game. The service was prompt, food was delicious and the restaurant staff were very warm and accommodating. It was overall a great dining experience. I would certainly recommend visiting Arriba for anyone wanting to watch a Jays game but looking for a pleasant change in atmosphere compared to the stadium atmosphere. Even if baseball isn't what you're into, the staff and food alone are also worth the visit!

    We booked a reservation at Arriba in order to celebrate my husband's birthday. They were able to meet all of our requests and the waitress was really nice and did an outstanding job! We were placed at a window table, so we were able to watch the Jays throughout our meal which was a neat expereince.

    My wife andI ate here prior to a Blue Jats game. There is a great view overlooking battibg practice on the field, but the food a service is poor. We just ordered a couple of appetizers. The nachos were burnt with inky cheese and about 7 jalapanos and the wings were cokd and greasey. The waitress was slow and not very friendly. There are a lot of options near the ball park for restaurants and pubs. Skip this one.

    This is a great restaurant to hit before the Jays game. There are several tables by the window where you can watch batting practice. The food is excellent and the service was fast but not in a way that rushes you in any way. Great atmosphere and location. I would highly recommend!

    We went to Arriba for summerlicious and were lucky there was a football game at the same time; the view is impressive. Luckily there was a game because the food alone did not blow us away. My caprese ravioli were overcooked and rather blend; my partner was happier with his plate (pork). The raspberry sorbet was great though.

    Stayed at the Renaissance Hotel in Toronto, attached to the Rogers Centre (nee Skydome). Got reservations and was able to get a window seat to watch the Blue Jays take on the Yankees. It was neat watching the game as you ate. Wait staff knew most, if not all, the diners were going to stay for most of the game, so we weren't rushed and felt very comfortable. Always a bit antsy about hotel restaurant food quality, but we were very pleased with the food. I had a seafood pasta dish with mussels and shrimp in a tomato-base sauce and my wife had a roasted half chicken that was perfectly done. Accompanied it with a Niagara-on-the-lake Sauvignon blanc. Restaurant also has a selection of bar-type fare for something a bit lighter.

    I've only decided to dine at this restaurant because I have received a voucher. I anticipated booked window seating a month ahead of time. I was arriving late and the staff were very accomodating. My friend and I shared an extensive array of orders. All of which were amicable. I'll be sure to come more often especially for Jays games.

    well we had a few surprises and some small problems...the first waitress apparently (according to another ) left home and never passed our coupon to the admin.also 2ND DESERT WAS NOT INCLUDED but when you expect a 20% tip ( as it is customary according to them) then a 2 dollars cupcake should be free lol ....anyways that was just annoying not as much for the price of another one , if we wished to have it...we travell there all the way from Hamilton Later our bill had the full price l!!! and tax added to that...when we mentioned that this was paid by visa already when we originally purchased the promotional voucher from travel zoo we were told that it was a honest mistake on their part!! we had to wait for the food a little bit .. regards

    I visited this restaurant twice on my last visit to TO while staying at the attached hotel. Lunch was delicious, but a little pricey...I had the falafel wrap and my wife had Smoked chicken Mac and cheese. The brunch buffet never disappoints, nothing out of the ordinary, but enjoyable. I have stayed at the hotel numerous times for different events and I have always been treated extremely well by all of the staff there. Good place and if you make a reservation they put you by the window so you can see what is going on inside of Roger's Centre.

    I went dining with my mom before heading to Ripley's Aquarium. As this is situated in the Roger's Centre - we were treated to the Monster Energy Supercross practice. The Arctic Char went very well with the sides and the crème brûlée cheesecake was outstanding. The service was great which made this dining experience perfect.

    We loved looking into the stadium, perhaps we can come back during a baseball game. However, the rooms are much higher priced and not sure if we can afford to do that. Perhaps there is some "package deals" and we can come back and stay in our room on the 4th floor that we had.....AMAZING.

    My party of 4 was here for the winterlicious menu, which was fantastic. The lamb shank and bread pudding were the stand out dishes, both rich and flavorful. The service was phenomenal - attentive, knowledgeable and professional. I don't know what the normal vibe of this place is, but the stark cafeteria look to it did not seem to match the food and service. Some dimmer lighting, warmer colours and chairs that actually have a back to them would have been nice.

    Arriba has a great view of the playing field in the skydome. (currently known as roger's center). you can dine and drink and watch games where the crowd increases, or just enjoy a nice dinner. The food was delicious-- we were there for the Winterlicious lunch menu and their choices for the prixe fixe were fantastic. The service was grade 'a'-- friendly and attentive. If I was forced to find a negative point, I would point out that the seats in the restaurant themselves are difficult to maintain a great posture.-- unrelated the rest of the dining experience, I would recommend this place in a heartbeat.

    I thought the restaurant was beautifully decorated and the food was excellent and the service was great. We were treated very well in your restaurant and there was a good wine selection as well. I've never been to that restaurant before and thought during winterlicious, this would give us a good chance to try it out and will definitely go again when the blue Jays are playing in the summer. I definitely would recommend it and would love a seat by the window like we had, to watch the game.

    My fiance and I went on a double date to Arriba and enjoyed every second of it. The food came out quickly and everything we had tasted great. I recommend the chips and dip as a starter. Incredible! I had the mussels and a house salad as my main and everything was delicious. The mussels were big and the sauce was yummy. The lounge menu had great options too like the club sandwich served with whatever side you like. Grab some friends and enjoy a baseball or CFL game. We had a wicked view of the entire stadium.

    We come here when in Toronto to take in a Jays game or any of the other Rogers center events to get an inside peek at all the action going on inside the dome. The Staff are always welcoming and very friendly and make you feel at home while you stay in the hotel or even if just staying for dinner. The view and energy makes this place special. Menu is a range from bar food to fine dining choices that always comes in a timely fashion and presented well. This is a favorite place for my friends and family.

    I recently moved here from Chicago and I wanted to treat my boyfriend for a special dinner at a special place. I came across Arriba as it was on Toronto Life's top list. Upon entering, the hostess said we probably couldn't get a seat near the window (as I requested) however if anything opens up, we could move right away. After several minutes later we were taken to a window seat. We were very excited! The food was good but the only issue we had was with our waiter. We felt that he did not check-in on us as he did with other tables. We felt ignored and we had to ask him for the desert menu three times. Overall, we would return but hope more attention is given to us by whomever is serving us.
