Food was delicious and reasonably priced, waiter was great and helpful. Highly recommend.
Stellar food, service, and ambiance! Easily the best place we dined out at in Chicago on our trip!!
We had a wonderful family dinner for eight of us celebrating my daughter’s birthday. Staff were all super attentive and food was amazing!
Fun ambience, nice service and delicious food. Was a great experience.
Celebrating a new job
Such a good place, always our go to with friends / family in town.
The food was amazing, everything we tried was delicious. Our party highly recommends the beef empanada!
Outstanding food and service!!! Thank you :)
Always a crowd-pleaser! Came here on a casual work dinner and it was a lovely night. We had patatas bravas (must order), bacon wrapped dates, grilled octopus (tender and so delicious), chicken and chorizo skewers and the seasonal mango sangria. I don't find their sangria to have much alcohol in it but I've never had a bad meal or time here. Great for so many occasions and we saw a ton of groups in. Servers are also top-notch.
The food was AMAZING! We would've given Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba 5 stars, however, they were out of glassware for our sangria upon arrival and we ended up getting some of our tapas dishes before our sangria arrived. This threw us for a bit of a loop but all in all the meal was worth it. They also didn't have our table ready at the time of reservation and we had to wait ~15 minutes.
Great food, Great service, I will recommend this place to all my friends.
Chorizo tasted little old
Everything about this place was amazing 11/10 would recommend to anyone
Drew was phenomenal as always!
Delicious food. FANTASTIC staff. (Thank you Rachel!) Best Spanish food I've had since living in Spain. HIGHLY recommend.
Enjoyed the happy hour tapas menu! A good time with friends after work. The sangria is a must! Looking forward to my next visit there already…
Great on all facets. First table we were seated at was freezing but the staff moved us to a warmer table by the kitchen.
LOVE this place! It’s one of my favorites. The goat cheese, patatas bravas, stuffed mushrooms, burrata toast and crystal bread are our go tos. We also enjoyed the veggie paella. The white peach and mango sangrias were delicious. We are so thankful for the birthday dessert (flan and a fudge dish); it was delicious! Highly recommend.
This is my favorite restaurant in Chicago, and I've been to a lot of restaurants.
Service felt a little rushed. Food was good, wish they had paper menu’s.
This place never, never disappoints! We
Were seated right away having made reservations ahead. Food was great, we had ham croquettes, goat cheese bruschetta , empanada, white sangria… fantastic!
Our food was great and the service was perfect!
We were told at 4:20 we were too early for our 5pm reservation and to wait at the bar. Bartender was convivial and service was great. We ordered pinxtos and were served promptly. Our table was ready and we closed out and the bartender made sure our second pinxto was personally delivered. Arrived at the table. Not sure why we were put in the children’s section. It was wildly loud, what with the children screaming, and the vibe sucked. Our server was wonderful however and we felt bad taking most of our food to go, but it was really a buzzkill to be surrounded by screaming children as a 2 top at a 4 top table that necessitated being same side booth sitters (which is embarrassing and weird and I hate). Food was good, drinks were fine, hosts could use some fine tuning for determining where to put tables, I understand if using a rotation it makes sense but it sucked for us
Fun atmosphere, great for any occasion and group. Excellent food and plenty of options to choose from.
The service was poor. Our waiter did not know any Spanish names of the dishes. And he did not seem to need to learn them when asked. We wanted to sit on the covered patio but were told the tables are all booked. There were several open tables there when we came and still some open when we left. Besides the service the food was good and the place has a nice ambiance.
They serve sangria in many different flavors. We got the seasonal special--mango sangria, and pork and chicken paella. The food is yummy. The only shady thing is that they add 3% transaction fee to your bill, without reminding you, other than a fine print on the menu.
In addition to the great meal and service I'd like to send a special 'thank you'. Someone in our party forgot their purse at the table and within ten minutes I received a call telling me we could pick it up at the hostess desk. That was really a nice surprise and much appreciated. THANK YOU CBBR!!!
Very loud today but food was terrific.
Excellent menu and service! We loved the tapas idea and both shared the chicken and pork shoulder paella - it was to die for!! We are already planning our next trip back
Absolutely fantastic in every way. All 4 of us had a great time.
Great paella and sangrias, service was great as well.
Lovely food presentation, exquisite flavors, and large shareable dishes. Service was a bit unimpressive- we felt like the server was simply there to take our orders and get us out the door. We were seated at a strange table directly next to a bar where servers picked up food. Ambiance was a bit off because of that factor, but the overall vibe of the restaurant was great. I’d come back again but ask for a more private table.
Amazing food, service, and atmosphere. Vegetable paella is amazing and can be made vegan.
In a class of its own. The most original tapas and pinxtos you can find outside of Spain. It does not get any better than this.
This place is worth all the hype. The food is delicious and service is great. Everything we tried we LOVED!
Absolutely unbelievable!!! BLOWN AWAY STILL!!! Best restaurant ever! We will be back soon!
Amazing experience! Exceptional service and phenomenal food, as always! Highly recommend.
Went to Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba with some friends to catch up and everyone loved it! There are tons of food options so everyone can find something that they like, and the drinks are incredible as well.
Great time , food was excellent service was great
I've always enjoyed the food here, but came specifically for the Happy Hour and it was such a deal! I will definitely be returning.
Perfect like always! A must go!!!
