The food was amazing and the staff was outstanding! Super friendly, they really made my night.
I went for dinner w/ friends on Saturday night. We were seated on time. The food was amazing. Service very attentive. Beautiful place.
Great atmosphere and every plate we tried was delicious!
I have been to Aba once before, and was really excited to return, but was quite disappointed with the service.
Our waiter put in our initial order, but never came back to check on us to see if we needed anything else. Once we finished eating, we sat there for about 15 minutes before he came back to see if need additional food, dessert, or a check.
Excellent , we’ll be back. Love the twist on the medietaranian/ Israel Cusine. Loves Aba and Ema. Next will be Ben and bat
The service could not be more excellent. Food was also great as well. Awesome vibe and can’t wait to come back during the summer months with the rooftop open.
This place continues to delight. And the cocktails are so FRESH. Thank you for nailing my experience each and every time. Hashtag delicious.
Great evening out. Loved the decor - felt like a Mediterranean haven. Food was really tasty, couldn't pick a favourite dish, they were all so good. Will definitely be back the next time we're in Chicago - next time for dessert too!
The food was good, but very salty. I had some kind of reaction, although I don't normally have any food issues period. My legs, fingers, etc. swelled up. Luckily, it disapaited with lots of water and was gone by morning.
Very good. Gorgeous space. Some dishes could use a little salt
Kind of disappointed. Food was mediocre and the place is in the middle of no where, we would not go back.
Aba is AMAZING!! The food is out of this world delicious! The staff was fantastic in assisting with menu selections. The restaurant's interior design is stunning.
It was a very nice evening. Our waiter was excellent.
The entire staff was great.
Good food, paced well, relaxing environment, made for a wonderful evening.
Absolutely beautiful room- excellent food.
The wine pour though seemed a bit low and that is my pet peeve.
Ambience is very nice. Beautifully designed interior. Food is very very good. Everything was special - from the home made bread to the halva for dessert - way better than the one I had in Istanbul. The only comment I have is that they seemed rush to fill the table again and they were taking plates or were hovering around us without even being finished. That put a bit of a downer for our special occasion dinner.
I love Aba. The food and service were excellent. Especially loved your octopus, Greek salad and the cauliflower dishes.
The food, the service, the place ....so classy. Was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
The restaurant was a unique Mediterranean
dining experience. It was an intimate atmosphere and se
rvice from David was excellent. I would love to return and dine in the rooftop patio.
Everything was fabulous! We had waited months to get in and were not disappointed in any way. 4 of us shared 6 dishes which was plenty of food. Can’t wait to return!
So good! Love the vibe and service was perfect!
I have been here twice. Each time service and food was excellent. Helps to make reservations well ahead of time.
We booked it few months prior and when we got there, we were seated at a small high top table at the bar area because, according to the hostess, they were “overbooked.”
We had to speak to manager to have 4 of us seated at a regular table which were actually available in the dining room.
And, sort of disappointed, food was mediocre, nothing special, but charged big bucks for it. Liked the ambiance, looked ver nice inside, had to wait a while to get food served. Bottom line, we will not go back. After all that mishap with our table, to our surprise, the mgr didn’t even offer free desert. Definitely, will not come back
Incredible food and ambiance!
This is one of the best restaurants in Chicago, indeed anywhere. The food is delicious and very. The wine and drinks are excellent. The staff is outstanding.
Love love love Aba. We eat here at least once a month. Such a great atmosphere and the food is delicious. Wonderful experience
Our dine in experience was phenomenal. Food was awesome. Our waiter, David Denhard, provided an exceptional customer service. On point with our drinks, providing clean plates for every course and contagious upbeat personality. Can't wait for another visit.
Lovely restaurant. We had a early dinner starting at 4 and stayed until 6:30. By that time the place had really filled up and the music was noticeably louder. But before then, the ambience was very peaceful, especially with all of the surrounding greenery. I'm very much looking forward to returning in summer when the balcony is open!
Beautiful setting with great food and service. Recommend for everyone
LOVED everything about this amazing restaurant. Atmosphere, food and service far exceeded expectations which were already high!! Everything was absolutely delicious — especially loved the short rib hummus!! So unique and beautiful overall!
Our second visit. Anything with salmon or brussel sprouts would be fantastic. Their octopus is great, too. We love this place.
Server was excellent!!!! She was very attentive, accommodating, and made great recommendations.
Food was very good as well.
Took my sister for dinner for her birthday with our parents! We wanted a small bite to eat since we weren’t that hungry. Ana is perfect for small filling plates with such good taste and quality. We ordered about 6 different plates for the 4 of us and it went very well. My favorite was the octopus! Will be back again when we are super hungry to try all the menu items and will order tons more!! 10/10!
This is a very hip happening place. Beautiful ambiance and I understand in warm weather the outside seating is a no miss. This was my first time visiting this restaurant. Many interesting Hummus dishes, the falafal was very good as was the cauliflower kabob and the chicken kabob
So completely fantastic. My second time here and the food is remarkable. The mixed drinks are WOW. Attentive service. The ambiance is what gets me. It still feels like an authentic Chicago experience, but there is a touch of NYC dining vibe in the room. There are two bars, beautifully lit up and shining. The ceiling is a wonder to look up to, because the sky can be seen from your table. I am a vegetarian also with a few odd food allergies. It doesn’t bother the staff at all. That means so much to me! They even have my personal food notes already prepared in advance. Always want to come back.
Had an amazing time. I went for the first time during restaurant week and it was so good I wanted to come back. Had our monthly girls dinner here.
- Whipped Feta: amazing- would eat this for my entire meal!
- Brussel Sprouts: crispy and flavorful!
- Crispy Short Rib hummus: the short rib was very flavorful and tender
- Slow-Braised Leg it Lamb Wrapped in Eggplant: got it the first time I went- it is so good I had to get it again.
- Beef Tenderloin: very well cooked. Tender and the potatoes were great!
- Chocolate tart: very decadent and rich. Whipped cream on the side was so light
Beautiful space! Service was quick and friendly, price points are high for the type of food, but they are comparable to other restaurants in the area.
Great atmosphere with trees, lights, patio. We took our server's recommendations and were not disappointed!
