I have been here for dinner atleast a dozen times. The staff is always great, food is fantastic, and of course there is no better view while eating when you have a window seat during a Jays game. I will continue to dine here because it is always an all around great experience.
We love coming here every year for our anniversary! The view from the table to watch the game is just awesome and we love the food and service. This was our third year in a row and we will be back next year! Thank you so much
From the moment you arrive the staff tries to make you feel at home by welcoming you with a friendly smile and courteous gestures. I decided to take my family to Arriba for Mother's day and reserved online with the expectation that we would be sitting far from the window. As we arrived the hostess advised that we would be seated by the window so that the kids could watch and enjoy.
The wait staff was accommodating from the minute we sat down and gave us a small talk about the two ways of service available. We opted for the Brunch Buffet which turned out to be amazing. The spread consisted of both breakfast and lunch items. I tried a home made yogurt with granola and mixed fruits which I had to go back for another as it was unbelievable.
The whole experience was beyond expectations including the most affordable brunch for 4 that I had in this city in years. Where can you have a great meal and watch a game for under $90.00?
I definitely will return more often as it is cheaper than actually venturing into the Stadium itself.
I don't think I've ever had such great service...the girls were kind, happy, and so helpful. The food on the other hand was disappointing. I had the fish tacos, and the portion of the fish was almost non existent. My husband had the steak and it was very fatty. So considering the price we payed, not great, but we got to watch batting practice, and again, the service was excellent!
Our second time at Arriba and it was just as good as the first! Alex, our server was so attentive and made sure that we were always being taking care of. The food is incredible, the atmosphere is vibrant, and you can't beat watching the game from the comfort of your seat enjoying great food! We were there celebrating my husband's birthday and my birthday and we had such a great time!!! Oh.... be sure to try the carrot cake it's the Chef's Grandma's family recipe or so we were told, it was incredible!!!! Arriba has become a family tradition for birthdays!
Our server was knowledgeable the host and managers were kind even checked up on us. We requested a window seat which was given to us only if the lights in the stadium was on itd be a better view. We started off with chips and dip, it was good the chips were still warm as they got to the table I just wish the dip was a bit warm so it was able to dip the chips easier Prime rib was cooked well. Short rib was a bit too salty for me and the potatoes just weren't my thing so wasn't able to enjoy it much. Finished it all off with the chocolate tarte, very sweet... Only complaints is that they share a parking lot with the Rogers center and don't validate parking because of the car convention that day parking underground was $25!!!! The day I went was -30 out. For the prices of their food they should validate parking.
We came here for dinner for Winterlicious 2015. We were a party of 4 adults. We were seated right by the window with a great view that overlooks the inside of the Rogers Center. We decided to come back in the summer and have lunch or dinner while watching a Jays game!
The food from all the courses were delicious! Turkey chowder, Quiche, Salmon, Braised Short Ribs, Sorbet, Carrot Cake, Bread Pudding - all delicious!
On top of that, our server was very friendly and pleasant. We'll definitely be coming back soon.
Ravioli and carrot cake were outstanding. Good choices.
We happened to go on a night where it wasn't too busy so the noise level was non-existence. The waitress was great and so was the food. We also saw Buck Matinez eating there.
Visited Arriba for Winterlicious 2015. They do not have an extensive cocktail menu, however the food was great! I had the ravioli which was ok, but other guests had the salmon and short rib and said it was fantastic! You could tell everything was made fresh, nothing frozen. They only had one server working but we still had great service. Had a great view of the Rogers centre and would definitely return in the Summer.
Had dinner on Christmas night at this place and its a pleasant surprise to see a place that's not noisy or packed on Christmas night in downtown.
The food is very good for the price it is. We had the holiday special which is a three course meal for $30 and its worth every penny.
We had the cream of mushroom soup, which is not bad but average.
For the main course, we have the roasted turkey and strip lion. Which both are juicy and tasteful. Especially the turkey stuffing, which my fiancée who never liked stuffing actually likes what they did to it.
And for dessert we had the creme brûlée cheesecake and the cinnamon bread budding, which both are very enjoyable.
If you want a dinner with a quiet setting (non game day), this is certainly a great spot for it.
And on game day, you can almost feel like having a free box ticket and enjoy the game.
This was not our first time at Arriba. We've had great experiences in the past. Unfortunately we had a waitstaff that was probably new and since it was really really quiet (3 tables, max?) at the time we were there, it was a good time to have her there. Unfortunately she knocked down a vase which splashed plant water all over my suede bad and coat. The manager rushed in only to say "oh it's jus water" which infuriated me. Her response? Let's give you 25% off your bill and give you free dessert. Oh did you want me to put your coat under a dryer? WHAT? That was an interesting response that could have been better. So we continued eating but really now. I would expect a more refined response from a Renaissance Hotel restaurant.
the food was good and big portions, however the print out of receipt was very confusing with the coupon and the waitress was defending the confusing receipt while raising her voice. Very annoying
We were promptly seated upon arrival. Service was friendly and fast. Food was above average, and we were served large portions. Prices were quite reasonable, for both food and drink. It's a great place to eat before entering the seating area of the Roger's Centre to take in a game.
We have booked this restaraunt a few times now and the service and food have been great every time. WE are planning to visit Toronton again next year and will book a seat at ARIBA for sure.
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!
Amazing staff. Accommodated our request for a great view in honor of my dad's 70th birthday. They made the day so special.
wonderful time! we went with friends visiting from out of town and our kids had fund watching the game during lunch. Lots of fun and great service
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.
A nice night out with the kids...service was good...a touch slow though. we have been before and will come again.
We enjoyed the pleasant, courteous service. The steak and prime rib were excellent! We enjoyed watching the warms-ups of both ball teams. It made our anniversary most enjoyable!
Ate a very good meal watching the baseball through full length windows directly overlooking stadium
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.
Went for summerlicious for lunch - had the goat cheese tart (misnamed, while good there was no hint of goat cheese), the ravioli (delicious!!) and the bread pudding which was also very good but without the promised chocolate.
Overall, the food was very good.
We made a last minute reservation to watch the Blue Jays game at Arriba and when we arrived, staff were very happy to meet our request for a table near the window (even though it was busy). Service was impeccable through out the meal and the food itself was fantastic. Can't wait to go back!
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.
Went for a Jays game - everyone was very happy with the the food they ordered - everything from burgers to falafel wrap were delicious. Great view of the ball game as well and curtious service throughout! Also thought the kids burger was fantastic value! Would definitely go back to watch a game there.
