Please note that outdoor seating is first come first serve, is not available for reservations and is weather permitting.
Small plates are popular now but to be served a portion that is microscopic is an insult especially when it is expensive.
Great service, excellent food, lovely ambiance. Great place to go with friends or for a date. Highly recommend.
Everything was delicious and loved the timing of serving the dishes
Think maybe someone got our table
outside, but oh, well. ;/
great ambience, good for happy hour or special occasions
I loved that we were able to sit outside on the patio (first come, first serve) on the comfy couches and order drinks and appetizers as we waited to be seated. Great dining experience all around!
I've been to Aba several times and always enjoy the flavors. The noise level, however, makes it almost impossible to have a normal conversation. I was with an out of town friend and could barely hear her.
In addition, we asked up front about gluten free accommodation for her and the first dish we ordered--the lamb topped hummus--came with a big hunk of pita on top. That was particularly noticeable since we had made it clear that I could eat pita but she couldn't. We had the dish brought back with pita on the side. Other than that and the noise, it was a very enjoyable meal and I will return. But please, pipe it down. Energetic atmosphere or not, unless you're dining alone, you want to be able to hear your table mates.
The food was delicious and the ambiance was great. This is a great spot for a date night or relaxing evening with delicious food.
Really cool atmosphere: high ceiling, open but not stark - trees! Fabulous, spacious rooftop. Loved every dish we ordered. Pork belly a must! Our server was extremely welcoming and helpful. Despite the obvious popularity of the place (all tables full) we were never rushed. This is a spot you’d like to show off!
I was very shock of the place I will be going back
Brilliant. Superb service too
Service was good, food was good but not great for price and serving size.
Delicious food. Whipped feta with pistachios and pita bread, Salmon kabob, chicken kabob, tuna, roasted cauliflower. It all tasted really good.
I really enjoyed our time at Aba. The food was very good and the cocktails were even better. Service was on point .
We to be amazed at Aba. It was a perfect evening. Can’t wait for it to get warmer to enjoy the patio!!
Amazing restaurant, excellent service! The cuisine was extremely tasty and visually appealing. The service we received was attentive, energetic and thoughtful. The ambiance and overall aesthetic of the restaurant enhanced the overall atmosphere and enjoyment of our dinner. Well done, Aba!
My husband and I made a reservation for Aba before heading to a concert, and it was the perfect cuisine and atmosphere for our night out in the city. Even for a Wednesday, there was a vibrant bar scene and the patio is so beautiful with a great view of the city. The portions were perfect, and our waitress was great at helping us pace our courses and the number of dishes to order. We even treated ourselves to dessert and the frozen Greek yogurt is now my new favorite sweet treat!
One of the best restaurants I’ve been to. The ambiance was awesome, server was great and the drinks - aloe green spicy one 👌! Food was so fresh and seasoned perfectly. Great time!
We absolutely loved our experience at Aba! The atmosphere is something you don’t expect in Chicago with all the trees and lights. The food is great and so fresh! The portions were great for sharing with two people and not overpriced for the size of each plate. We would come here again even for just a drink and the crispy short rib hummus. I liked the variety of wine offerings from beyond the typical Italy and California. It was the perfect place to celebrate my birthday.
Great food, great staff. A tad loud but that seems the norm today!
Literally everything was just amazing. Like the most amazing!
Awesome spot!! Ambiance, food and service were excellent.
Great food, great service, beautiful dining room and outside dining.
Our waiter was great with tree nut, peanut and sesame allergies. We had a great night celebrating my daughter’s birthday!
See my yelp post. Amazing ...highly recommend. Get the lamb hummus. Skewers are great.
Birthday celebration—fun evening!
Food was incredible -best restaurant that I have been to in awhile. Beautiful and fun ambiance.
Outstanding place to eat and to meet friends. The food is excellent, healthy and delicious. Cocktails are unique to the place and overall it was a great experience.
Hostess sat us at the bar, even though we had a reservation. Service was terrible. hostess was the worst. We complained and got the snobbiest response.
Loved the black garlic shrimp and the charred eggplant spread!
It was difficult to get a reservation, but well worth it. The food was fabulous, different and diverse. We loved the whipped feta and hummus with pork belly as well as the Brussels sprouts. The overall atmosphere is a very pretty and pleasant space to be in. Total winner!
Great food and ambience Will return next time I'm in Chicago.
We were looking for a last minute meal around 10pm and managed to get a high top table, which was great since Ana isn’t easy to get into. We ordered humus and whipped feta for the first course and both were great. Next we shared the lamb chops and skirt steak for a main dish. Both were delicious but the portions are very small. The skirt steak was about 4oz and there were two lamb chops. The crispy potatoes are really worth all the carbs! Drinks were colorful and nice to look at but lacked a bit on flavor. I had the Aloe and she had the G&T. Maybe we just didn’t order the right drinks! 🤷🏼♂️
We’ll definitely visit again and explore more of the menu.
Meeting a precious friend
Food was great. Drinks were a little wimpy. We were sat at a bar table which we weren’t expecting after having made a dinner reservation a few months in advance so that was disappointing. Service was quick and friendly. The dining room is beautiful if you actually get a chance to sit there.
Wonderful food, great service, nice ambiance, will go again soon
Absolutely amazing experience. The atmosphere was laid back, but still up scale. It’s gorgeous and relaxing. The service was great. Our server went over the whole menu with us and recommended drinks, foods and dessert. And everything was delicious! I got a cocktail that I didn’t love and she took it off of our bill. The plates are perfect to share between 2 or more. The best thing we had was the pork belly with orzo. And the sirloin was delicious too. Can’t really go wrong with anything on the menu! I highly recommend visiting!
Phenomenal place to eat and drink. Great vibes.
