The Capital Grille - Chicago - Downtown
SUCH good food. loved the tapas, and great for celiacs.
Great food great time it was my significant others birthday
Always a great time!! Thank you!
This restaurant is a favorite when friends visit from out of town. The small plates make for a fun dining experience and it's nice to taste so many different dishes. New to us this time were the chicken and chorizo skewer with peppers and horseradish sauce as well as the paella. Two servings of paella for five was more than enough to get a very satisfying serving. We'll keep coming back!
Very busy Thursday evening. Had a reservation, seated right away, requested a special table for a birthday occasion but did not receive that but instead were seated in a a tiny area in the bar area cramped and in the aisle way. Service was pleasant and prompt, food was above average.
We chose Cafe for the energy, atmosphere, sharable and vegetarian options, it met those requirements.
We went on a Monday and their cocktails were half price (not including the sangria). Every dish we ordered was delicious!
It was great
Amazing as always!
I love sharing small plates with friends. Paella was outstanding!
Reservations for2 at 6pm. Not super busy but was seated at a 4 top next to a door. I made a special request that was a fairly simple delivery request to the table of a package i left earlier in the day and it was on the table when we got there instead of delivered with drinks as requested. Food was good but on par with every other tapas restaurant I've been to. Price fair.
I want to mention the service was excellent. The reservation process was outstanding. Did not wait a single minute. I want to thank the host staff for providing fantastic accommodation. The valet parking was fast. The food was very tasty. The desserts were delicious. My wife was very happy.
Thank you for the kind words Ernesto, we are so glad you enjoyed your experience here!
It usually a little cramped in there. However, it is my favorite place in Chicago. Always delicious food and great service.
Great service. Great value.
The food was really mediocre, nothing about what I ate was memorable or had much flavor. There were many items on the menu, so the variety seemed great, but nothing had exceptional flavor.
Dear Casey M., I'm so sorry to hear of your recent experience here at the restaurant where the flavors were just not up to par. Good food is the backbone of our business so it is disappointing to know that you did not enjoy your meal. Would you be willing to provide your contact information so we can have one of our managers get in touch? Thank you.
Planning rehearsal dinner at the restaurant so had to try food.
Had a great server who listened to us and was very attentive. The restaurant also accommodated my ask to have our table of 8 somewhere more private. Was very happy with our time at Ba-Ba.
We were in town for the annual Radiology show. This is my regular Chicago food stop. Came with small group. Great meal, great fun as always!
My daughter loves this place but I didn’t think it was anything special. It was cold food was just ok as was the service. Our busboy was great .
To whom it may concern, I'm so sorry to hear of your recent less than acceptable experience with us, especially in regards to the food that was cold and the poor service. 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.
Server was very attentive ! Food is amazing as always !
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
