Great atmosphere and food quality. Not as authentic as expected.
Smelled like sewage in there.
Great vibe and the food and sangrias were great! Even my picky friends loved it.
It was a really pleasant night and the food was really good
Lovely evening out to celebrate my nephew's birthday. Excellent service!
Came for my 6 month anniversary with my boyfriend and it was an amazing experience! Highly recommend for a nice night out. Best things were the spicy potatoes and the calamari!
We love Ba Ba Reeba! Always order paella and sangria!! Amazing! Only thing I would say, improve on the flan recipe. It wasn’t at the level of the rest of the food.
Fun place to go! Beef empanada was a wonderful starter. Best dish was the grilled squid - sweet and tender. The anchovy toast was very interesting - didn’t have the overly fishy taste. The rack of lamb was the only disappointment - leaning on the bland side.

My family and I LOVED the food at this restaurant. Highly recommend the hanger steak, lamb, scallops, and brussel sprout salad. We were wowed by it all! The only thing we weren't a fan of was the noise level in the bar area. We made a reservation and anticipated being seated in one of the main dining rooms. Not a huge deal but it definitely made conversation difficult! We will be back!

Kevin was a superb server--he was friendly and warm, informative and efficient. We enjoyed dinner and, while the food was great, the server made it even better.
Don't ever go early for your reservation. They make you wait until almost the exact time, even though when I walked around to use the restroom and saw open tables where my group of two could have been seated. Most annoying. Still would recommend because overall the place is great.

Had a great time at Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba! The food was great and service was good. Always a good time!
LOVED! Went twice in one week for dinner. Goat cheese is a must and the scallops. Butterscotch dessert is life.
Everything was great! The manager was very accommodating for our group when we made changes.
Small plates were super delicious. My fav was the brussel sprout salad and bacon wrapped dates. Sangria is also a must! Cafe Ba Ba Reeba is the perfect date spot.
Always a great experience here - food is delicious, and price point is better than area restaurants for getting to try so many dishes. Mojitos was as good as the ones in Barcelona! Kind, attentive staff
Octopus a la Plancha was phenomenal. Cooked to perfection
Perfect for a much needed date night
Fun date night! Loved the experience ordering tapas! So fun having the small plates come out in intervals. And the food was DELICIOUS. Must go back
Food and service is always fantastic!
We sat in the bar area for brunch. Bartender was great and the food came out fast
Hands down best tapas I've ever had. Cozy, warm environment and food that will leave your taste buds speechless. This is my new favorite restaurant!
Absolutely recommend. 10/10 one if the best eateries in Chicago if Spanish tapas is your thing. It's an experience more so than just going out to eat. I can't wait to go back.
My wife and I along with another couple were at Babareeba for the first time in years. And it's still a raucous as ever on a Saturday night. But the food and service were great. We'll be back.
Lovely tapas restaurant! Sangria is great. Desserts are small but but tasty. The burrata toast was heavenly.
I had written my wrong phone number so when our table was ready I obviously missed the text...when I went to the hostess they immediately sat me even though totally my fault! Could not have been more understanding!! Always the best meal 😊
Very great experience
A new favorite for tapas! Portions are larger than most restaurants. Garlic potato salad was so delicious!
Excelent food, quality products and great service. We will definitely going back there. Thanks
I always come back to this restaurant. My order included beef empanada, goat cheese baked in tomato sauce, beef carpaccio, seared scallop and more... Blueberry sangria was so good
Celebrated 2 birthdays. Paella was great
My husband and i celebrated our anniversary this past weekend. Our waiter was great, food and sangria were delicious! I’ve been coming to cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba for years and can’t wait to return!
As always, incredible service & food. I always recommend this restaurant to friends and family!
Food was good. Just was extremely loud. Even the waitress had hard tile hearing us
Great place for brunch! Love a brunch spot where I can order food I wouldn't be able to make myself. Delish! Love the red Sangria.
Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba never disappoints. I wish the escargot dish was still on the menu, but other standard favorites will make do. The special steak with manchego mashed potatoes was outstanding!
Early dinner, quick and perfect! We love this restaurant.
Happy Hour deals are fantastic and service is prompt, friendly, and with a smile!
Sangria, spicy potatoes, sweet potato soup, meatballs.... yum yum will highly recommended.
Though the server hostess was polite and the server Tim was great... the food was subpar. Eating in different restaurants around the world I have tasted a variety of foods.
The Paella was dry and tasteless. The price point for the majority of food was high based on the size and quantity of the plates.
Ambiance was too dark, the metal chairs did not complement sitting there waiting 30 mins for food.
All in all, some may enjoy but not us.
