There was a lot of traffic, and it was noisy...good and bad considering I was on a date. People watching was great. Food was awesome. Idk about another first date with the noise. I just kept asking huh...one more time...
A wonderful dining place! Atmosphere, food and service - everything was great!
I can't wait to go back! The heated patio was perfect for a small group, with not too much noise and not too cold in the winter. Everything from the food to the service was amazing.
Our server was amazing, food was delicious as always — friend felt super celebrated ❤️
Great service and great food
We were a large group of 6, we ordered quite a few things to share and I can honestly say that there wasn't one in the bunch that I didn't like! The service was exceptional too! Can't wait to go back in the summer to enjoy the terrace! Highly recommend.
Beautiful atmosphere and great food. The wine from Israel was a perfect pairing! Great date night or friend dinner, wouldn't do a group bigger than 6.
Delicious food, good music, great service, and a fun atmosphere! Perfect night celebrating our Anniversary. I will definitely be back soon. This place would be great to go to dinner with friends before a night out, or make this your night out! Loved it!
Loved this place. The combinations of flavors were phenomenal. All the dishes were mezze style and I thought they were really ample portions. Beautiful restaurant and great drinks!
Awesome meal, I am really beginning to enjoy the whole small plate concept, everything we tried was delicious and there will be plenty of different items to try on our next visit.
Food was hit or miss. Falafel and lamb & beef kebab were good. The whipped feta was super salty and the accompanying bread was kinda flavorless. The shakshuka was really terrible. Cocktails were bad. Service was barely attentive.
Delicious food. Nice olace
Had brunch and loved this place. Could be our new fave WL spot. Beautiful room. Outstanding food. Everyone really friendly. Will b back! Had the Ragu Lamb hummus, Kafka lamb/beef eggs, broccoli, the pizza (can’t recall the actual name). Everything was exceptional.
Atmosphere and food were amazing , only complaint - our server was very slow and inattentive. Other hosts, servers, bartenders made up for it.
Lamb wrapped in eggplant and the green falafel were our favorite.
The broccoli and mushroom hummus were great but the only two dishes took the cake.
Always a pleasure to dine at ABA! Nothing but the best of everything.
Beautiful setting with loads of natural light.
Indoor trees and candles and lanterns.
Covered Patio for the cold with heaters and fire pits.
Very kind and quick staff.
Great Valentine’s Day spot. We love ut
One of my favorite restaurants in Chicago and one of my fav Mediterranean places anywhere. Gorgeous and delicious.
I love the food and generally have had good experiences but this time we were seated outside, yes it was covered and there were heaters but we weren’t seated under a heater and were both still cold- after all it was 20 degrees out. The service was getting slow outside and i wish they would have just not seated us or told us they were full rather than put us outside with subpar service.
Beautiful with amazing food and service - the best spot in Chicago!
Amazing food, service, and ambiance. The perfect amount of natural light. Very cool view of the city!
Servcie: above average
Food: Some dishes great. Others could pass up. Did not try alcoholic drinks
The experience couldn’t have been better!!! Thank you
As promised, Aba didn't disappoint. The decor is spot on for that neighborhood. The ambiance embraces you when you step off the elevator. We sat on the terrace in winter. Heat lamps and blankets were perfect. The view was stunning! We tried about everything on the menu, we have 5 people so it didn't seem indulgent. JR was our server and was very hands on in suggesting what to try, offering his favorites from drinks to dessert. Definitely request JR if you want service to be top notch. It's a hard reservation to get, but well worth the wait!
I am a regular at Aba because of the great Mediterranean food, ambiance and service. The whipped feta dip is one of my favorite dishes in the city and the olive oil ice cream is a unique dessert. Great spot for friends or a business dinner.
This is our new favorite restaurant! We sat outside in the middle of winter in their heated/tented patio - what a view! The staff is so accommodating with every question, request. We had several of the hummus apps - delish! The pork belly and cauliflower skewer were favorites. And, the drinks!?! Can't say enough about this place - will be back, again and again.
This place is spectacular! Great food! Great drinks and wow! what an ambience!
Love the cozy vibe and the interesting, delicious food choices. So fun to relax and share small plates.
Nice wine list with many Mediterranean options. Wait staff is knowledgable and quick to offer suggestions which I always appreciate!! Also, best bathroom in the city!!!
We had a lovely time and will return.
Can't wait to go back! Was a great value with Restaurant Week deals... Will be a good treat next time.
Loved it! Beautiful decor and great service.
Love Aba even more after having brunch here! Delicious menu and great bloody mary. The humus was wonderful and I'm now a huge fan of the MUHAMMARA dip with roasted red peppers.
Aba is my all time favorite restaurant in Chicago. Perfect scenery, staff, patio all season long, and the drinks and food are absolutely amazing. Each experience at Aba is very special!
I loved this restaurant!!!! Will for sure be back.
Great atmosphere! Great service! Great food! Get the kanpachi!!!
