Our waiter was over attentive to the point he was annoying. We were clearly catching up and trying to enjoy a low key dinner with friends and he came by, no joke, every 7 minutes interrupting us all night and clearing our table while we were still enjoying food/drinks. After we paid for our bill, we were finishing our wine and we spotted him pointing at our table! So rude.
Great waiter and wonderful ambiance and views. The food was good but perhaps not as good as I was expecting for the price. As a tall person, the seats with the comfy chairs and couch were super uncomfortable so I’d aim for the bar next time.
Food and service were excellent.
Great food could turn down music
Small portions are welcome for light lunch fans. Tasty ceviche and empanada with delicious sauces are a real treat. Some were too salty but that could have been an anomaly for the day. We have been here before in summer and truly enjoyed the outdoor seating, Now in Chicago's cold winter the magic is gone,
See you back in July!!
Our server, Andrew was wonderful as well as the food! Would definitely return. :)
Treat yourself to an unique experience
Indulge in new flavors
Enjoy the view
Delight in seeing other people also appreciating the experience
Food was delicious but service felt rushed. A dish my husband ordered (we specified I would not be having it) was delivered while he was in the restroom, the server removed the lid and there was a release of delicious smoke but he completely missed the effect. Also several drinks and dishes were taken so quickly we didn’t even finish them.
STEPHANIE IZARD is a genius and Cabra is a spectacular treat. Loved every minute, especially our server Hutch
Great space and a good vibe. The pork dish was really tasty and the donuts were yummy. The pisco cocktail was good too. The only thing that was a little off was our server. He was not really all that friendly and seemed almost judge-y, which was weird. I think I still favor Little Goat though...
Happy hour deals were outstanding. Service was a little slow and I was bummed they wouldn’t seat my party of two without the other person being there although the place was empty and I was just waiting on 1 other person but I get it. Food was spectacular and ambiance was too! Definitely going back for their lunch special.
We were in Chicago to celebrate birthday and Cabra did not disappoint!We loved the Peruvian fare and every detail of the experience!From the table setting to the food and service to the view!love,love,love the small plate concept and the vibe!Beautiful!
I love Girl and the Goat, and Cabra will be another fave. I loved the green plants everywhere - made me feel like I was in Cusco! The service was fantastic. Our server helped us choose drinks and our dishes based on our liking and made fantastic recommendations. Just like Girl and the Goat, the chef yet again has thought of more beautifully composed dishes! Every bite has decadence, freshness, crunchiness, and gorgeous colors.
I took my children here and the food was not family friendly. The tables are extremely small and the place a little dark. We loved most of the dishes and the service was good. I will have to come again in an adult group setting next time.
All six diners were thrilled with the various plates that came to our table...at times unusual and always delicious. Helpful server, fun ambience, all was a big thumbs-up. Can't wait to take family members there.
After our trip to Peru we fall in love with Peruvian food and we were very excited to try this place. But the experience was not good. This place should be called Small Cabra, small cocktail glasses, small napkins, small plates, small portions. They advertise the plates size are big enough to share, it's not the case. The duck chevice was nothing special, no flavors. Goat empanadas were good. Octopus on the grill was sweat and a very small plate. Lomo saltado was like a veggie sweet and sour broth with some tasteless meat inside. The pork shank was the only one very good and a decent size portion. In summary, only the names of the plates are Peruvian. All dishes come with unnecessary fat sauces. The only think to share was a big bill at the end.
Incredible! Amazing flavors. Best brunch I’ve had in years! A must try.
I loved the tuna tiradito and the pulpo con olivos!
Tasty drinks and plates, I would recommend to someone that likes seafood as they have great and unique options
Perfect combination of food I love and happy hour is great
Everything was great, but a bit dark and noisy. We will definitely recommend this place.
We were very excited to try Cabra. As soon as we heard it was opening, we put it on our dining list. However- left quite disappointed. The ambiance is great, but service ( server was not at all interested in us- but food runners and server assistance did good) and food left a lot of room for improvement. We travel to Peru twice a year and we were expecting good peruvian food from this amazing chef. However this is not peruvian food, it may be inspired by peruvian cuisine but flavors are far from it( lomo saltado is not even close to what it actually is ). Ambiance is great and pisco sours are amazing, but if you want to try peruvian food this, unfortunately, is not it. So if you eat here keep in mind that if you eat in Peru it will taste very very different ( and better). Chicago has another great peruvian restaurant that serves better food .
Vibe of the place was amazing and the food was to die for! Ceviches were my favorite and so fresh!
Food is lovely. Flavorful and unique. Just love it
Awesome food and the service was outstanding
Everything was “good”, but it wasn’t exceptional. We both agreed that we were glad we tried it, but that we probably wouldn’t be back unless someone else suggested it. The ceviche is awesome though and you should probably make your meal out of that!
Overall an excellent experience!!
Waitstaff was extremely helpful, we have dietary restrictions.
Great spot for those with food allergies
Bucket list item complete, the Stephanie Izard restaurant circuit. Highly recommend all of them. They were all different and great in their own way.
Cabra is the perfect combination of great food, service, ambience, wine list and all with a stunning view! Sharing plates are varied, high quality and full of flavour. What more could you want?
Love the variety of meat/fish - things like beef heart, goat, chichurron that we don't get often. Innovative, great for sharing and delicious
Food was excellent but the acoustics were terrible and noise level was so loud that we could not hear each other. The noise level made the whole experience much less enjoyable. We thought that it would not be so loud at 4 pm, so we were very disappointed with the overall experience.
We eat out a lot. We had to wait about 3 weeks for the time that worked for us for a reservation to eat at Cabra, the prices were higher than average so our expectations were quite high. The ambiance was great and the restaurant was very cozy. We were seated right by the door to the patio and it was a cold night so most of our meal was interrupted by a cold draft but aside from that, we really loved the atmosphere. Our server was fine. He did his job well and it was a busy night but nothing that blew us away. All of our food had great presentation...We got a crab salad of sorts which was refreshing and very tasty. I would definitely order it again. We got another salad with all kinds of Lima/garbanzo beans with fried cheese...it was good but didn’t really hit the spot in terms of flavor... we got the whole fish which was cooked perfectly but the sauce they give you for it was just so so. It was sweet and savory but with a fish you usually want something like lime to squeeze on it or something to make it more sour or something with a little spice to give it a kick. It was cooked great but u less they give it a better sauce, would not order it again. Last, we got the sweet potato donuts for dessert based on our waiters recommendation and oh my god they were so sweet. We both had two bites and were DONE. Overall- our drinks were absolutely amazing. We would come back to enjoy the ambiance and a drink with maybe one small plate to try something new but would not eat dinner here again.
The food was outstanding. So many flavors, just a little too pricey.
Significant other visiting town and sharing a night out with another couple there was great! We shared 6 assorted plates and loved each one.
Great food! Very cool ambience. Plates are meant to share. The snapper ceviche was excellent!
The best dish (and best value) on the menu is the Chicharrón del Puerco; it's an oustanding dish and can easily be shared. The Solterito was another item that can actually be shared with others and all the ingredients complimented the dish. The mango soft serve swirl was delicious and all the flavors worked very well with each other.
We were there to treat our friends one from another country and one from another city. They loved food and everything!
Once you find your way to the Cabra express elevator , it's smooth sailing. We went for brunch on a Sunday morning and Cabra has a eclectic vibe and a fabulous view. We had the smoked salmon dip, sea bass ceviche, shrimp, sweet potato donuts, chocolate mousse, fritters and grilled peppers. Loved it all and left nothing behind. Just the right blend of seasoning and not masking the flavors of the food.
After months of trying to get into Cabra, I was quite disappointed by the food. The environment is very cool, but food was mundane and not all that tasty. I would not recommend and probably will not go back.
