Average quality. Kitchen is a bit dirty. Some items came hot as you would hope some came in cold.
Café Ba-Ba-Reeba is a staple, go-to restaurant for my boyfriend and I - it is good every single time we dine there.
Consistently good! Went with a group of 7 and everyone was delighted with the options and the food. Service was Wonderful!
We love this restaurant. Food is always delicious, the service is on point, and the wine selection is wonderful.
Everything was fantastic
The best place in Chicago. Great food, great service, and beautifully decorated!
Excellent as always!
Great food drinks and fun!
Great shrimp tapas and scallop tapas
Server was great! Gift certificate deal was the best!
Everything we had was good. Dates and chorizo was excellent as were the jamon croquettes Waiter was efficient.
Lovely experience. Get the spicy potatoes.
The waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. All food came out quickly and was delicious. We had the calamari, buttermilk chicken, and spicy potatoes, and paella mixto. On a Tuesday night, we had reservations for 6pm and the restaurant was mostly empty. By 7pm or so the restaurant was completely full.
Excellent food and service as usual, delicious and nothing less!
I’ve patronized this restaurant since the 1980s. As good as ever, across the board. If you can’t find something you like on this menu, you’re probably not hungry!
Love this place. Some of the best small plates I have had. Great atmosphere had great company and and would recommend this place to go with friends or great for date night
Fantastic as always. We always try to do a family dinner here when everyone is in town.
Our waitress was very easy to deal with and was very patient with us. We enjoyed the food very much! My only complaint was the place was relatively empty when we arrived and the first place the hostess seated us was against the wall in a dark corner, so I asked to be moved to the larger dining area, which was better lit and more spacious.
Delicious brunch options all served Tapas style - we will be back!
Was perfect for brunch , I loved their platter option , my mom also loved it . Only complain of sorts is their drinks wasn’t cheaper for brunch . Service was excellent :)
Went with a large party for a birthday. Seated a little before reservation (definitely make a reservation, particularly on the weekend) in a cute quieter room in the back which made it easier to chat with my party. Food was delicious! Not one dish we didn’t enjoy although some were a little smaller than others which made sharing a bit difficult. Our waiter was helpful gauging how much we needed so everyone was satiated. The house sangria was very good and seafood paella tasty. Overall it was an enjoyable experience and we will definitely return.
the full package! great food drinks service lots of conversation - a chicago neighborhood gem!
Great food! Tapas style food- great for trying a little bit of everything. Highly recommend the Wagyu beef and deviled eggs.
Great food, great drink options and friendly service. Love this place!
The food was amazing like always. My friend had never been to Cafe Ba ba Reeba and he said it was one of the best meals he had ever had.
Always my favorite place to done with friends.
Great as always.
It had been a while since we’d visited but as always it was outstanding.
The food was cold and they never compensated for it. Terrbible service!
Delicious food, wine, and cocktails. Great overall ambience! We will be back, yet again.
Favorite tapas restaurant in US!
Food was exquisite!!
The quality has gone down a bit over the years, but is still redeemable.
Dear Nickolas, I'm so sorry to hear of your recent less than acceptable experience with us, especially in regards to the meal you received. We always try to exceed our guests' expectations but unfortunately, sometimes fall short. Would you be willing to provide your contact information so we can have one of our managers get in touch? Thank you.
Great experience all around (food, options drinks, ambiance, service, etc.). Highly recommended!
They sat us in the back room to the right and it wasn’t as good as the other rooms we’ve previously been in, which is why the 4 stars. The room felt enclosed.
Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba used to be solid. We were excited to dine at Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba last night. We left disappointed. Food came out cold. We ordered 4 dishes and it took awhile for each items to come out. Quality, taste, and temperature of the food was poor.
Food was amazing and would definitely recommend a pitcher of sangria. We lost our server a few times, but food came quickly, so no complaints. Will definitely be back!
Amazing tapas and great service! The sangria is delicious. My family enjoyed the experience. The paella is delicious as well.
Tried some of the new winter menu, so good and had some old favorites too. Lovely evening!
Food was good; service was fair; valet parking was non-existent.
Dear Gwenevieve, Thank you for coming in and we appreciate hearing both the positive and negative aspects of your visit. I'm so sorry to hear that the valet and service staff fell short of our expectations. We strive for excellence with every guest visit but, unfortunately, sometimes we fall short. Would you be willing to provide your contact information so we can have one of our managers get in touch? Thank you.
The food was delicious, the staff was very kind and prompt. Gabe was our server and he was wonderful. Food was really fresh and flavorful. Good portions for a tappas restaurant. Really liked the atmosphere and decor.
I am so glad to hear your experience was so wonderful! I will be sure to share with Gabe the positive feedback and we hope to see you soon!
