The reputation of this place is already incredible, and the food did not disappoint! The service was great, the drinks are delicious, the food came out fast and tasted incredible. I can't wait to go back!
This was our second time at Ba-Ba-Reeba and again it blew us away. Every dish we ordered was fantastic, and we were able to order as we go as it's hard to determine how many small plates will be filling enough. The cocktails, service, and variety of food to choose from guarantees that I'll be returning. Great for groups or a date.
Great food and staff, except for their front desk staff member.
Server said 90 min limit. We had 5. It clearly stated on open table up to 4 is 90 minutes. Up to 6 1 hr 45 and up to 8 2 hrs. Server said never heard of that? Told her it was on open table.
Our server was so wonderful! He waspersonable, and gave great recommendations! The food was excellent, particularly loved the spicy potatoes and the shrimp. Tried a few of their sangrias and the black raspberry was my personal favorite. Can't wait to come again!
Food and service were great as always. We will be back.

It was great, food/service, wait staff. all wonderful. Our first night off in quite a while and we felt comfortable and safe. Not to mention, the food was delicious.
We love Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba! they never disappoint when we go there. Between the service and food it was an all around excellent experience!
Excelent food, great place
Can’t go wrong with tapas for any occasion! Can come in casual to dressy, paella is plentiful! Best bang for your buck.
One of my favorite restaurants didn't disappoint for the perfect Valentine's Day dinner! So happy to dine inside safely again.
Wonderful neighborhood restaurant. So cozy and delicious food.
Always delicious, prompt service and great food. Felt a little rushed but there is a 90 minute table limit do to COVID, so that is understandable. Price is a little steep for 2, but it was a special occasion and worth the splurge!
From the time that we walked in with hostess to us leaving the workers were nice and customer service was amazing. Our server Micheal was amazing!! He was nice and always knew what we needed. The busboys were nice and very considerate with what plates to take to make room for our dishes as new ones came out. Best part was the food of course and everything was amazing!! We had the bacon wrapped dates, papas bravas, Brussels salad, deviled eggs, grilled squid, fried calamari, meatballs, shrimp in garlic, and paella. I had the virgin sangria and it tasted amazing!! Loved loved loved everything!!
Everything was amazing minus one of our tapas (calamari) coming out super overcooked.
Visit Barcelona in Chicago. A Tapas staple, serving a great variety of tasty treats. Come prepared to be dazzled. Try the Paella, dates, seafood beef, pork and more.
Great place for a Valentine’s Day date, my girlfriend and I really enjoyed our visit.
The food isn’t outstanding, but it’s good. 2 glasses of Sangria will set the perfect end to the meal.
The food is always so delicious and I’ve never had a bad experience with service. Highly recommend!
Excellent service excellent food!
It was perfect. I love going here. Will return. Recommend 20/10
We were celebrating Valentine’s Day!. The food was amazing and the white peach sangria was delicious. We will definitely be back!
We had a lovely time at cafe ba ba reeba
We eat here often. This was, by far, our worst experience. The server was bordering on rude. The room smelled of sewage. Our bloody mary's has No garnish, but other tables had a bloody mary chock full of goodies. Totally disappointing experience.
Always love coming here! We are going on 30 years of great dinners here!! I would have given the food a five star but they no longer serve the warm bread after being seated and the chorizo platter was removed from the menu and that was one of our favorite tapas:( Overall this is still one of our favorite places to eat!!
First time here and I loved it. All the food was delicious as well as the cocktails. Made a note on our reso that there was one vegan in the party and they came prepared with some great suggestions.
Had a birthday. The staff was so kind and helpful. Made it a very memorable night
Food was excellent and piping hot.
First time comer, me and my husband really enjoyed baba Reba. The food was very delicious.
One of our favorite places, always a destination to celebrate.
Fun atmosphere and great food
So great to be back. This place is always top notch!
Food was excellent, and highly recommend the chicken empanada, hanger steak, and Brussels sprouts salad. Drinks were also good: loved the sherry old fashioned.
Wonderful as always! The special Sangria was amazing - blood orange & hibiscus.
Food and service were amazing, will definitely be back.
We cannot WAIT to come back and make our way through the rest of the menu!
Great food, drinks, and service! Loved this place.
