This place is amazing! It's different than your typical Chicago restaurant which I really like! Everything is shareable and fun to choose a bunch of different items off the menu. We will definitely be back.
Excellent food and fun presentation! The sangria is fabulous!
May try again. May not have been up to par on account of these COVID Times.
Great food great atmosphere!
Tapas are just OK. Nice place and service, but really not worth the money with so many other places around. Would be good for drinks.
Great food! Loved the brunch tapas In addition to traditional Spanish tapas. Taking good safety precautions with Covid - screening, taking temps, distancing and masking. We felt very safe.
Amazing meal. Everything we had was outstanding.
Great place and great food! One of the best authentic tapas in Town
We went for happy hour and ordered off the happy hour menu - plus got our favorite paella. Can't beat the happy hour prices. Everything was delicious as always.
One of the best outdoor dining/COVID experiences
Cute little spot, the pitchers of sangria are a good choice!
We had a 4-person reservation for lunch, and server returned every 5 minutes asking if we were ready to order. It was clear he was trying to get us our food and get another party seated at our table as soon as possible. When we asked for more time to look at the menu, he told us we only had an hour and a half at the table to finish our food/drinks. It was clear the restaurant is trying to churn customers to serve as many people as possible, even though we were paying their 4% COVID fee on top of the total bill.
Great service and awesome food!
A sorely amazing! From food to service, to a great experience!
Sangria the Best , bacon wrapped dates
Even with the limited menu due to the pandemic, we enjoyed the food very much. Bear in mind there is a 4% surcharge that is added to your bill to help offset additional expenses due to the COVID. At the end of the day, we didn't mind because everything was great as always!
We had lost track of Cafe BaBa Reeba and were please that our son and his girlfriend had "discovered" it. We were greeted promptly and shown to a nice, socially distant table. The place is so big that there is plenty of space to spread out. We started with a pitcher of white sangria and it was delicious! The food choices were varied and all wonderful. Service was top notch
My favorite place!
It was great!
We liked it a lot especially the sangria and tomato bread.
Really good brunch. Drinks and food are solid and we loved the patio.
Excellent flavor for a reasonable cost. The tapas are great to share with 3-5 people. We split one paella among 5 people and were content!
Wish the menu had all the original items.
Everything was delicious. I felt safe, I saw management and staff enforcing COVID -19 protection guidelines. Yes, I’ll be happy to go back again.
Wonderful. Good food. Good company. Wife and I frequent here often. Has fun exposing this place to another couple.
Always have loved Cafe Ba Ba Reeba. The food is still delicious as ever!
The back smelled really weird so we asked to move and they were really nice about it
Food was great! We were able to try different tapas and it was delicious. The paella was great and fulfilling. Sangria was delicious !
The food came out quick and hot. I really enjoyed the sangria flight. All the food was delicious except the meatballs were not that tasty. The peppers need a better description, just not what we thought.
Overall it was excellent though.
Everything we ordered was phenomenal! They even had several options that were gluten-free so it felt nice that half our party could partake in the tapas without feeling like they were missing out. Highly recommend the hangar steak, pork with red chimichurri, the garlic potato salad, and the stuffed mushrooms!
We were seated immediately and on the patio! Our server Kylie was pleasant, kind and on top of it all. Everything was absolutely delicious as per usual!
Fun evening. Great job keeping everyone safe and spread out! Great food and drinks!
My first time sitting in the back room - it wasn't my favorite. Food was delicious, especially the croquetas, pan de tomato, anchovy-stuffed olives, and butterscotch custard. Classic red sangria also good. The music selection was really strange and random. Next time I would like to hear music from Spain.
The entire experience was fantastic! I have been to Café Ba-Ba-Reeba a few times now and I have never left anything less than super happy and full! When you arrive they have hand sanitizer available and ask to check your temperature, loved that. They safely and comfortably bring to your table that is clearly sanitized and far away from other tables without feeling like you are alone on an island. The service was quick and friendly, the food was delicious and timely, and the drinks were amazing!
Wonderful Experience!! The food was delicious and service was great
Loved the vibe!!!
Really good food, nice handling of safety and spacing and good value. Our lead waiter was not great, but the experience was still really nice.
Delicious meal in a relaxing environment with an attentive staff.
Loved our experience at Cafe Ba-Ba-reeba. It was my friends 40th Birthday and it made the evening really special. They even comped us an amazing chocolate cake and brought it out with a candle.
Outstanding food with an above and beyond level of service from Kylie.
