So so good! Loved the food and the vibe! Great place for a birthday.
The cocktails are creative and delicious, the tapas-style dishes hit the spot, and the service is friendly and prompt. I love Baba!
Nice place for having a few cocktails with friends. The cocktail menu is interesting and unique. The food menu is small plates, but everything was excellent.
Valentines Day - We were told when we made the reservation that while there was a pre fixe menu, you would still have the option to access the full menu. That was not the case. Instead you were forced to pay $130 per couple for two drinks, 4 small plates, and ONE shared dessert, $169 per couple after taxes and tip. That’s $18.50 per menu item on average including drink and dessert, $24 per menu item after taxes and tip. That is a complete ripoff. Not to mention that the bolognese and lamb dishes were way over cooked and service was awful. The kicker was their phone kept ringing loudly disrupting what should be an intimate Valentine’s Day evening. I’ve never written a review before, but the overall horrible experience I had compelled me to write this review.
We went for valentines day so a price fixed menu. It was decorated very nice, and the serivce was good. Food tasty but be small plates, and seating very close together. We enjoyed it and the bar area looked fun, with high tops. Music later. Good spot for date night.
Too tight!!! Tables were extremely close to each other. Not the experience I was looking for valentine's dinner.
We had a lot of fun. We will go back. I thought the Valentine's day fixed price meal was a bit over priced, that is why I rate the value 4 stars. We loved the ambience, the service, the drinks. Not noisy, even after it filled up. Music was the perfect volume for intimate couples conversation. Looking forward to our next visit.
Terrible service and too expensive for the amount of food.
Truly incredible experience and unique atmosphere
Live band kind of spoiled our ability to talk over dinner. The band was good though
Food was very good with both vegetarian and carnivore options. Expect a tapas like experience and ordering a number of plates to share. It does get pricey pretty quick and not unreasonable to expect to spend between $80-100 for two people by the time you figure in drinks too. Very much a casual bar like atmosphere vs restaurant for seating but comfortable nonetheless.
Baba was an Open Table suggestion and had exactly the environment my friends and I were looking for. Great for a cozy yet elegant dinner. Delicious food, attentive service and great ambience.
Great find! The brunch buffet is a great deal and includes a diverse cocktail menu for only 25 cents per drink. Staff was very friendly, there was a dj during brunch and according to the manager on weekend nights as well. Will definitely be back.
Baba has been on my Try list for some time. Finally made a reservation - was very impressed. Sorry that I have forgotten our server's name - her recommendations were spot on.
Excellent food and unique cocktails. Perfect for date night- just be prepared for high price of small plates. Everything was delicious!
My wife and I were looking for a cozy spot for a date night away from the kids. The seating was a little tight, but otherwise the experience gets high marks. The menu was varied and interesting. The prosciutto croquettes and wild mushrooms were favs and the risotto was good, but filling.
Will be back.
Baba is the best! Such a cute and trendy space and the service is aways on point. The menu is interesting and delicious both with the cocktails and the food. I tend to bring out of town guests here often because it’s always a great experience and everyone always loves it.
Brunch is an amazing deal with a great DJ experience.
Great place and did a good job for New Years Eve. Overall the spot is very unique and the food is really good. I am going to go back again and try the service on a regular day because if they did a good job for a holiday, I have really good expectations of them during regular service. Thanks for doing such a great job.
Brunch server was rude. Said we had “to take some time” between ordering mimosas although it’s a bottomless affair. Felt rushed and subordinate. Disappointing as I love their brunch and ambience.
Second time going to Baba's and I'll definitely be going there again in the future. Great food, excellent cocktails and raki. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable too.
We went to Baba for after dinner drinks and absolutely enjoyed ourselves. It is very lively ; music is great; and service is excellent. Drinks are unique and it is fun to try out different drinks. Definitely a must try!
Fantastic experience, great little place for wonderful cocktails and food. Amazing happy hour choices.
Great service; great food. Will definitely come back again!
Very nice place , for a date =A+
Food is always amazing but everything took sooo lonnggg this time. Our drinks took 30mins and our food took 45mins.
Fantastic experience as always.
Great cocktails and a nice, fairly quiet space. They have great happy hour specials on both food and drink. It is nice to have an option in Arlington for a bar that is not Don Tito's or the Goat. I will definitely be back.
Went here for a get together with friends. The atmosphere is cozy and inviting. Interesting variety of tapas and libations. Seating is intimate. There was music in the background but we could carry on conversation easily. It’s a remarkable transformation of this space from what it used to be! Well done.
Love the ambiance and the live music. The food is tapas style and everything we ordered was very tasty. The cocktails are also yummy
Absolutely love BaBa, the space is so inviting and fun and the food always delivers interesting flavors. The drinks are very creative and well executed.
Love the cocktails! Great tapas, the service is always great.
They need different music but other than that, this place was amazing!!!
The foie gras was the best we've had in the US. All of the drinks were fantastic but especially the Wu Gentleman. The food was great and the drinks were phenomenal. And the live music made it everything even more amazing.
Excellent intimate environment
All as we expected - cozy and intimate. Food was good, but not outstanding. Which I wasn’t expecting at all.
Service was really slow but fantastic drinks
Love this cozy spot! It's great for a date spot or girls' night. We really enjoyed the guitarists playing near our table; the atmosphere is warm and welcoming, and the drinks and food are fantastic.
Baba Bar has high quality and unusual dishes. It has a speakeasy feel. I appreciated the additional specials (pairings of dish with cocktail) it had this week in honor of Cocktail week. Keep up the good work, Baba!
Service was excellent, cocktails were unique and flavorful and arrived quickly after ordering. Very energetic vibe. Always have a great time at Baba, will be back soon
