    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 4/24/2010
    would definitely be better on game day, as we had a full view of a very dark baseball stadium (the Rogers centre, home of the Toronto Blue Jays). We went on a Saturday night and the place was dead...not a good sign. however, we were pleasantly suprised by the excellent food. I would highly recommend the calamari, artichoke dip and the creamy, cheesy mushroom based pasta (the special that night). would definately recommend this and hopefully business will pick up...but for now, it's an unknown gem.

The day we went there were some poorly behaved children, but it wasn't the restaurant's fault. Food was pretty good. Service was very polite, and accommodating.

    Nice place. We went during lunch and it wasn't too crowded. The view of the skydome is nice, but there wasn't anything on. Still added to the ambiance. Booths would be nice instead of just tables. I hadn't requested a table adjacent to the window, but the staff were accomodating. I don't recommend the calamari as an appetiser. It was undercooked. Otherwise, the food was good.

Beautifully presented and the taste was amazing. We were able to get a window seat which would be great during Jays or Argos season also any Bills games. Just need to make reservations well in advance. Would definitely dine here again.

    What I mean by "scenic view" is that you have an AMAZING view of Rogers Stadium!! We went there for Brunch before a game on Sunday, and it was so much fun to look over the beautiful stadium. The weather outside was miserable, but inside with the lights and everything, it was perfect! There was a breakfast buffet that had the usual breakfast food and the menu had some really interesting things for brunch (I recommend getting something from the menu rather than the buffet...) but it was a great place to go before the game. The restaurant itself was a bit hard to find (its in the adjacent hotel to the right) but it was worth it!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 7/18/2008
    The feel of the restaurant needed a lot of work. It felt like an airport bar. The food was good but all the sauces were way too sweet. The bottle of white wine we got came warm and when we asked to get a chilled bottle the server asked if we wanted ice cubes in our glasses! They did bring us fresh glasses of chilled wine and recovered nicely. The server also brought us our bill quickly when we said we were in a hurry. That's a rarity in Toronto. All in all I will probably never go back to that restaurant. There are so many good places in this city, this restaurant is not one of them.

    My food was good...appetizer and main. My guest felt her main was underseasoned. Her plate of mussels looked like a hearty appetizer until she found about half the shells were empty. Also, I called in advance while on route and asked them to let my guest know I'd be a bit late when she arrived. The person I spoke to said they'd inform her, but I found when I arrived this did not happen. Overall, rate it 6.5 or 7 out of 10.

The female server was pleasant and polite, but the service was slow considering it was not busy when we were having our 3-course Summerlicious menu around 1:30 - 3 PM in the Arriba Restaurant. The Summerlicious Deluxe menu was flexible in choices and delicious at a reasonable price and the kids menu has a nice variety of choices.

    This being our first visit to Arriba, we must say we were very pleased with the whole experience. We brought relatives from out of town for the Summerlicious specials and they absolutely loved the view of the field and the atmosphere in general in the restuarant. The food was unique, with two of us having the Watermelon Soup as a starter -- and loving it! All four of us felt the food was well prepared with great presentation. Our waiter was very nice and attentive, and the service was fast. All of the employees seemed to be very professional. This will not be our last visit to Arriba! Thanks for a great dinner out!

The view of the baseball field is amazing. I would love to go there again during a ball game and get a window seat. Overall, experience was good, especially given the Summerlicious price!!
