Cocktails were amazing, if a bit pricey, but the happy hour specials were well worth it. I only tried appetizers, but yummy, loved the empanada!
Great cocktails and tapas. We practically ordered everything on the menu
Great date spot- good cocktails and fun food options
The vibe, the food, the drinks were amazing! Arbella's staff was very knowledgeable and provided an air of fun.
Stu was an awesome server. Food and drinks arrived quickly and their happy hour menu is spot on. Will be back many more times.
The burger is a must eat even if you've been beefless for two years like my friend who ate a piece. Absolutely one of the best burgers I've ever had. The drinks are also delicious.
stop playing gangster rap @ 5PM
doesn’t even go with your overall theme
Great craft cocktail lounge!!! Plus the food is great. Popular on weekends will encourage to make reservation
Service was awful. The waitress kept interrupting our conversation to give her two sense. The air conditioning was up so high that we were freezing with coats on in June. When we brought this up to the server she basically said that there was nothing she could do. Thank goodness we had a GILT coupon bc it would have definitely not have been worth the price otherwise. Cocktails were delicious so maybe just go for that.
This was my first time at Arbella and I really enjoyed myself. The food and drinks were great. Presentation of them was amazing! Our waiter, Paige, was a great time and made the experience enjoyable. Can’t wait to come back again.
Great spot with delicious food. Asia is awesome and I’m h service is top notch. Overall fun, energetic experience. Try the holy grail, you won’t be disappointed.
Was surprised to see a lot of speciality drinks available! Found out after my visit that you can request your drinks to come Frozen! The food was very good! Small but shareable plates. Have to come back hungry so I can try more food! Overall a nice experience!
Our service and food were great! The cocktails the bartender came up with were awesome. Definitely will be going back soon!
I always love the cocktails here. The music can get loud, but still a fun place for people in their 30s and 40s that want a fun night without the club scene.
Great atmosphere. Cool but not pretentious. We’ll definitely be back.
Great service, and great cocktails. The food was ver good, would definitely come back!
I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I will come back with my friends
Inventive small plates, creative and well-balanced cocktails on a fun, informative menu, excellent service, and a cool, sexy vibe. You won’t be disappointed.
Place is cute and small. Great food and great drinks! A tad bit loud but the music is good.
We had a great time at Arbella. Tried several different cocktails and tapas. Slow and relaxing meal with great service - the servers were very helpful, and all had fun personalities. We got there right at 5 when they opened, so it wasn't crowded. A bit pricey, but perfect for a special evening out - will definitely be back.
Great drinks! Unique but also really good. Dealers choice option was cool too. The dishes we had were takes on traditional dishes - done really well. Empanadas, tacos and elotes all spot on.
Great for drinks and apps before dinner or a casual event.
Some of the best drinks in Chicago. Great ambiance. No real hostess stand, so to the back left of the bar
Birthday celebration! Wonderful drinks and great atmosphere!!
The food at Arbella was wonderful! So much flavor and such creative dishes like chicken shawarma empanadas. Service was great. We were checked on frequently and the dishes we ordered came out quickly one after the other and piping hot. It’s a cool trendy atmosphere but didn’t feel pretentious. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening here.
I decided to check out Arbella because of a few really interesting menu items and I was a little disappointed that the menu on Open Table was outdated...some specific items were were excited to try weren't available as the menu had changed (quite a while ago according to our server). I wouldn't go back to Arbella for dinner but definitely a great spot for creative cocktails, an appetizer or two, and some lively music. Service was great and we had a fun time!
Our waiter Stuart was amazing in guiding us through the drink menu! He even started suggesting other drinks based on our individual preferences, it was so fun. Great music, lively environment, and the flatbread is so tasty.
Great vibe, it's like a hidden gem. You don't really see this place from the street but once inside was visually appealing. A great mix of music, get the "chips" and the Korean chicken. Awesome! Huge variety of cocktails with a superb Mixologist working behind the bar. Definitely will be back
Nice spot downtown. Low key ambiance with nice overstuffed chairs, attentive staff, good craft cocktails and well-prepared high quality food. We had the empanada, smoked hummus with pita and the skirt steak. All were quite good.
Small plates are amazing - excellent diverse selection and reasonably priced.
What a great space!
The space was matched by the cocktail menu where attention to detail and balance created a fantastic experience.
Service, provided by Aja, was attentive, knowledgeable...guiding us to experience some of Arabella’s finest cocktails and food. She was engaging without being invasive. We will ask for her the next time we dine there ....which will be soon!
I loved Arbella. Great drinks great food. The staff was awesome and the drinks...AMAZING
Great drinks. Great atmosphere. Just wished there was someone to greet me at the door. We stood there for more than a minute and had to flag a waiter down who was busy with other customers.
Extensive and interesting cocktail menu. Great ambiance.
Great service, cocktails, and environment! 5 Stars
The only issue we had was with the squid. I'm not sure if the burnt little round things were potatoes but the were burnt to a crisp.
The drink selection is a vast one. Drinks inspired from travels around the world! Hard to stop at one! Food was wonderful. The egg roll was by far my favorite.
It’s a bar with food, not a restaurant
Got drinks and apps with girlfriends. It was a blast and our server was amazing.
