Food was great the drinks were awesome and the atmosphere was fun.
A good time!
Great happy hour for food and drinks! Definitely make a reservation. All of the food was very tasty and perfect to split with a group. Will definitely be back for more! Love the atmosphere
Honestly some of the best cocktails I've had. Waiter was also very knowledgeable with recommendations and comparisons to cocktails I may have had in the past. The food was great as well.
We went for happy hour this time. Good food and fun drink menu! Happy hour food a good value.
Drinks are on point and the creativity and flavor combinations of these are worth exploring. Trust me, you won’t want to miss this!
Our first visit, but a winner. Terrific server, friendly and helpful, Arbella has very unusual and tasty drinks, small, but decent wine list, and a very small, tasty tapas menu. Everything we tasted was excellent. Only compliant was that the pork belly in the tacos weren't crispy enough for my tastes. Otherwise, a very enjoyable dinner.
I love the ambiance of this place! It makes for a great date night spot or if you want to do drinks with the girls. Their cocktail menu is large with many options to choose from. They also have great food and small plates which I love. Sort of pricey but to be expected in a nicer place in Chicago. Definitely would recommend!
Arbella has amazing drinks and tasty food. The staff is very knowledgeable about the menu, especially the manager Joseph. Joseph explained all the drinks for us and made delicious recommendations. I highly recommend this must-try Chicago spot!
This was our favorite dining experience of our weekend getaway. The service was impeccable and the food was phenomenal.
The waiter forgot to place an order, but was great about helping with an allergy that was tricky to get around and otherwise very attentive. The place was full, so it’s understandable he was spread a little theme. Great food and atmosphere!
Fantastic cocktails and great service. Loved the atmosphere!
We went here for our 5-year anniversary and it was wonderful. Our server was extremely friendly, and brought us each a complimentary glass of champagne in celebration of our anniversary.
The drinks were incredible; they tasted great and were decorated beautifully (my glass of trankilo melon - a tequila-based drink with fruit flavors - came with burning sage on the rim to cap it off with a nice smokey smell).
The food was pretty good - we got these shrimp and pork egg rolls that were delicious, as well as some sliders and korean chicken.
I would recommend this to anyone as it is a fun environment that works well for either a romantic evening or a fun group outing.
Amanda was an excellent server and all four drinks we tried were phenomenal. We want to visit again soon and try the delicious-looking food that passed us by.
Excellent happy hour -- rotating mule and spring rolls so delish. Regular menu good too (e.g. sliders) -- definitely going back to try regular cocktail menu!
Our server was very thoughtful with recommendations and was incredibly attentive. We absolutely will be back!
Had a first date here, perfect atmosphere, good drinks, didn’t break the bank. Couldn’t ask for too much more than that, I’d definitely go back.
Love this place! Lots of unique cocktails to choose from and always great music playing. This is a great place to start your night out or bring a date. Although it is quite expensive, the drinks are strong and the small plates are all delicious!
The only downside was that I reserved a high top because that area of the bar isn’t as noisy as the rest. I got there and there were no high tops open despite my reservation, so instead of sitting in the noisy back we sat at the bar. What’s the point of a reservation if what you specifically reserve isn’t held for you?
Definitely not worth a 4-5 star. I had 2 drinks and honestly didn't taste like anything special. Flatbread was just alright, taste like something I can get at Trader Joe's frozen section and the baos was better tasting than the flatbread but still can get a way better tasting bao at Wasabi or Little Bad Wolf. They see a little unorganized there. There is nobody to greet you when you enter. I had to go walk over to the end of the bar and let the server know that we had a reservation. She told me that there is no host and that everyone that works there is a "host". Makes no sense but ok. Definitely will not be going back!
Food had a great twist! American classics with some twists..Asian and Latin fusion on some dishes. Pretty yummy.
THE DRINKS/COCKTAILS are Amazing!!!!!!! Fresh, tasty with a kick.. would definitely recommend
Bartending staff is amazing, along with the kitchen staff. Had a wonderful time
Got the hummus platter and cheese board for happy hour with a friend. I got a few glasses of the house red, and she got Moscow mules. Overall was pleased with the price, size of portions of food, and drinks. Will definitely go again!
My favorite place in the world!
Loved it. Really creative and novel
Good cocktails and ambiance
Great food, fantastic service, solid alcohol and beverage options
Not bad, sliders and rolls are good. Wasn’t the biggest fan of charcuterie and cheese.
Great food, innovative drinks. Prices are relatively good for the neighborhood and quality. Definitely going back. Great date spot. Definitely make a reservation
Cool enviornment and great food! The staff is nice and drink menu is extensive!
Loved this place. It is very unassuming from the outside but once you go in, it’s really lovely and fun and the food is fantastic!
Great spot for a light food and cocktails. Innovative drink menu. Would request seats in the back away from loud speakers though.
My group loved it here! The atmosphere was great, we loved the decor, and our waitress was super helpful and attentive. We made a reservation and got an amazing table, and the whole process was painless. We ordered several items off the drink menu, and didn’t love a couple of them. Not because the bartender messed up, just more personal taste. Our waitress took them back and helped recommend something different. Everything we ordered off the food menu was incredible. Highly recommend the Korean fried chicken.
Great place for a date! Their tasting menu, or should I say adventure, is more like taking a trip rather than ordering a drink.
Would for sure go back!
Absolutely incredible food, some of the best dishes I have ever eaten! The drinks were also fantastic as was the waiting staff, definitely looking forward to coming again.
We had a great experience! Our waitress, Paige, was amazing, and everything she recommended was spot on! The drinks are delicious and the tahini sauce served with the empanada should be bottled and sold to go on everything!
Amazing! The cocktails alone are enough to bring us back. This was a pre-dinner stop so we only had 1 snack, but it was delicious. We will be back for more food and drinks!
Great service and ambiance here! We went for happy hour on a Friday and we made a reservation. It got pretty crowded around 7 so I am glad we booked a table. Our waiter was attentive as well.
Asia our server was awesome! Great food and service!
Such a cute little gem in the River North area! Friendly staff, great drinks, and a unique menu.
