We went to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday and it was a lovely experience. Our server was so sweet and wished him a happy birthday and surprised us with delicious cake at the end. Plus Stephanie Izard was cooking in the kitchen which made the day so special!

Delicious food. Cool ambiance. The pork shank is huge but worth it, share it with more than 2 people.

Left a bit disappointed. Portion sizes were extremely small for the price. Food wasn't very filling for a dinner. Sat at table which was very low to the ground, uncomfortable.

Overall good service and hospitality.

Stephanie’s food never disappoints! Beautiful space and looking forward to coming back to enjoy the patio seating. Only slight miss was the check-in process in the lobby, which was a little chaotic.

Cabra is one of my favorite rooftops in the city. With authentic Peruvian flavors, it's a must try. Definitely try the various ceviches, the tuna and salmon ceviches, goat empanadas and steak salteado are worth the wait.

Food was good, didn't blow me away, small portions at higher price (to be expected for location).

Best part of dinner was served, Akube (spelling?). She was awesome. Great energy, very intuitive and sweet.

Cabra was an amazing restaurant! Everyone here was extremely friendly and the food was outstanding. The views are awesome and overlook a cool part of Chicago. If you’ve ever been to Peru, you will see that menu is a unique take on traditional Peruvian food and everything I got, I loved! 10/10 would recommend this place.

It rained earlier that day, and the outdoor table my party was shown to had a wet chair. I ended up sitting on a very wet outdoor sofa without realizing it. When I asked for another table, we were seated on the other side of the restaurant, at a much smaller table that wobbled. All the food could barely fit on the table. The food is always great, the staff is courteous, but service that day was not the best.

Lovely space. Our cocktails were great - elderberry and the smoky mescal drink with froth. A couple of the dishes were fantastic - the avacado dip and vegetable dish with green beans, corn and fried cheese. The others were good also. We had a variety of servers, never really sure who was taking care of us. Everything was very good, just not 5 stars. Next time we go back, it will be for drinks and an appetizer.

food great. service not so much- server had patronizing attitude & neither person at desk nor server told us beforehand about 2hour limit. server also behaved as though our fault one of the 5 items we ordered never appeared at table (she was ready to charge us for it, despite the item never actually having been delivered ayyiyi). i had hoped to order dessert as well but she told us had only few minutes remaining (after which though she disappeared for awhile and we had to beckon her over to take the bill, very odd).

Cabra was phenomenal. I sat at the bar, as I was dining solo during my road trip, and the bartender (sadly didn't catch her name) was super chill, friendly, and helpful in choosing what to eat. I had the salmon ceviche, crab causa, chicken anticucho, and goat empanadas and each new dish was seriously better than the last. All the flavors took me back to my visits to Lima, which is impressive. I ended it with the tres leches and a double shot espresso, and oh... my word that dessert was absolute fire.
TL;DR – Cabra has a killer ambiance in a clutch boutique hotel, the food is amazing with authentic Peruvian tastes, and the service is friendly and cool. Go there now.

The food was fabulous, and the rooftop setting, with fireplace blazing and heaters going, was drop-dead spectacular! Great place for a brief taste of what things used to be like...and felt very safe during these COVID days.
