Favorite restaurant in Chicago! It’s totally different than other places around the city. Everything is so good. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Restaurant is beautiful, and even more beautiful in summer when the pool deck is open!

The space is lovely--plants everywhere, windows throughout-- it is really a great space with a beautiful view of the city. The food is all delicious, and there is a lot of flavor (people with bland palettes would not do very well here). Love the bar selection and service, too! I recommend doing the shared platter route so you get to try more. It is a little more expensive for how much food you get, and while I am okay with this and have no problem paying the price, others might not feel that way. So, just make sure whomever is enjoying this meal with you understands they are paying for food AND ambiance/experience.

This place just does it all right, from when you walk through the door. One of the best in the city, hands down. Unique, adventurous, delicious and marvelous service. Great views and location. Cocktails are fantastic. What more can I say?

Our server was on point and awesome. Super friendly. Made recommendations and was attentive. Unfortunately, the first impression from the host was less impressive. She didn’t say hello or make eye contact. It felt we were a bother for being there. She immediately lead us to our table while talking extremely quietly. Zero percent welcoming. Thankfully our server was awesome.

I've eaten here many times with just one other person and in small groups and always had fun! On Sunday morning (Valentine's Day), there were a few problems with service that were disappointing. We ordered 3 items to share, and one of the appetizers came with pumpkin seeds on top even though that wasn't listed on the menu. One of us is allergic to pumpkin seeds, so we said "sorry but that wasn't listed on the menu, we're allergic" and our server just said "oh" and stood there. After I said "we can't eat it" he walked away wordlessly, and we got a replacement 10-15 mins later.

We also were never checked in on, every time we spoke with a server was when we got up to find one or flagged someone down, which always feel uncomfortable. We literally kept saying "if it's okay, can we tell you our drink order?" "if it's okay, can I have another tea please?" we don't feel like a burden at other restaurants, and have never felt like a burden at Cabra until this experience.

It was just such a disappointing contrast to the experience we had the last few times we were here! Our table was one of 3 in the whole room on Sunday at 1pm.

We come here for the food but we return for the service and I think any of Boka's other restaurants are more enjoyable than the experience we had here, with the same level of awesome food.

We had a dinner reservation for a small group of 4 on Friday 2/19 that we just canceled.

Food and service were great. However, they don’t answer the phone OR have a mailbox so good luck if you’re late and need to get in touch with them ASAP. Having fewer staff is not an excuse to simply ignore every call.I highly doubt they are answering emails in real time.

The Goat family of restaurants always delivers! They practiced great safety protocols and still had lovely ambiance and delicious eats. Some of our faves were the Tuna Tiradito, Hot Chorizo & Queso Dip, Goat Empanadas, and Chicharron del Puerco. That pork shank was divine!

We ate on the patio which was a great combination of more fresh air flow and warmth from heaters and a fireplace. Service was incredible and the server was really knowledgeable about dietary restrictions. We loved the experience.

Even though indoor dining is open and we had a reservation, we were seated on the patio and could see our breaths all throughout dinner. We had to keep our jackets on and car key fob actually froze. Would not recommend until it is warmer out

I’ve been to cabra a couple times and really enjoy it. I highly recommend the goat empanadas they are AMAZING. My only critique would be that if you don’t like sweet drinks, steer clear of the signature cocktail menu and order something traditional.

The food was wonderful as was the ambience. My only critique is that they didn’t time the dishes well. We ended up getting four plates at the same time that were a mix of hot and cold. When we told the servers we would have preferred to not have everything at once, they said they understood and then less than five minutes later brought out the last plate we ordered. It made us feel rushed which affected the experience, but on the whole this place is outstanding. Order one to two plates at a time and you won’t be disappointed. Truly excellent food.

The team at Cabra is PHENOMENAL. Masked or not, everyone is welcoming with a warm smile and very genuine laughs. I've been here a few times prior to COVID restrictions and had nothing but raving reviews to share- and now with COVID, I still have nothing but love to share about our experience at Cabra. We celebrated my birthday brunch here on a lovely Saturday afternoon on the outside (WELL COVERED AND HEATED) patio. The food is amazing, the drinks to die for, and the ambiance tops off the experience. Fabian (our server) for the afternoon, welcomed us, super knowledgeable about the best (authentic Peruvian) drink selections, and knew exactly how to make my birthday with my girls special. I recommend this place for a quiet date, a group celebration, catch up fun, experience to try something new. All in a very safe and socially distant (between parties) way. Cheers you ALL!

We had a great experience! Food was all great, our waiter was amazing and even gave us some bar tending tips since we had been to Peru and been trying to recreate Pisco Sours (make sure to try that!). The steak was great and the peppers/potatoes were flavorful. Pork shank also a bit. The salmon ceviche was a great palate cleanser to start the meal! We will be back for sure!

Came here for my boyfriends birthday. The goods are the restaurant was beautiful- great patio, great views with a roaring fire place and an airy, green, modern comfortable vibe. 10/10 for ambiance- perfect for celebratory brunch or drinks with friends or a date. Cocktails were nice, pretty, and reasonably strong. The salmon ceviche was outstanding and well-balanced; however, the food was just OK+ for the most part.
You could eat individual dishes or shared style. We shared so I got a taste of about 7 dishes.
Overall I’d go back for the ambiance, mostly for a date or drinks on the roof. Don’t think I’d go back for the food at this price point.
