    Very nice ambiance, chic Spanish Restaurant and Bar. Surprisingly was not busy although we went there on Saturday Night . Indoor seating is not that big but nice and elegant , outdoor seating is not that great , doesn’t match with indoor vibe I would tell. Music choice was very good . Service was very good .

    Unbelievably delicious menu options (the scallops are out of this world) & the service / staff are amazing (very friendly & attentive & accommodating to our requests - my wife has an egg allergy & they adapted the zucchini tempura so she could enjoy it too). Top class restaurant.

    Our waiter was very pleasant and made our experience pleasant. The portions of food were very small and it was too expensive for what we got. I would not go back again.

    I would definitely recommend Chica. You will need a reservation. We walked by it several times because there's no sign. We finally asked someone in the adjoining restaurant who kindly directed us to the correct place. Chica is relatively small, feels intimate, has a nice size bar, and is casual chic. The crowd is younger, hip. We enjoyed the unique and delicious tapas with a rose recommended by our waiter. In particular, the scallops with melon, patatas bravas, tomato salad, and corn dish were remarkably great. The trout was okay, but we probably wouldn't order it again; I thought it was a little overcooked. The dishes were modest in portion size, but they are tapas, so it's not unexpected. Enjoy!

    I particularly recommend the service staff for their friendly and casual manner. The food is excellent but would prefer more options specifically seafood. The rap music should be rotated out with latin as an alternate.

    Excellent service and fantastic food. Our favorites were the Pan Y Mantequilla, Ensalada de Tomate, Patatas Bravas, Maiz Y Sobrasada, Filete De Carne, and the Vieiras Crudas. The Mucho Gusto cocktail is also a must have.

    Food was absolutely fantastic! Wanted to try everything on the menu. Small plates. Perfect for a date night, everything is priced for two portions - on the pricey side but totally worth it.

    Aaron, our server (as well as the rest of the team) were super attentive and friendly. We ordered 8 tapas for the two of us and they were brought out in an order that really allowed flavours to compliment each other. Everything was delicious and the presentation was phenomenal. The music for the night was on point (early 2000s R&B/rap). The volume was perfect as we enjoyed our dinner on the patio. Pricey, but it’s hard to argue when everything is in point. We ordered two cocktails to start off, a bottle of wine and 8 tapas (no dessert) and our bill came out to just over 300$. Most tapas are within the 8-17$ range, while others are pricier (25-37$). The fact that the wait staff did everything right/all of the little things (refilling wine glasses/perfect pours, wiping off the table mid meal, changing out plates/utensils) adds incredible value and makes it so that the prices seem all the more reasonable. You get the attention to detail you’d expect in an upscale restaurant, without the pretentiousness of an upscale restaurant! We will definitely be back!

    This was my second time eating at Chica. I have nothing but praise. I LOVE the food! My server remembered me, and welcomed me back! Not only that, there were more menu choices that had been added since my last visit, and he was quick to recommend the new additions, and they were well worth it! I enjoyed at least two new dishes!

    I appreciate a small intimate setting with a small menu which means freshness. Enjoyed two food items (Flores de Calabacin Rellenas; Vieres Crudas) and Mucho Gusto cocktail which has a nice kick. Food items were delicious and honestly I would have ordered the entire menu if I could and definitely will return to try more food items as well as the drinks.

    As tapas, dishes were very very small but prices were quite expensive for some subpar, regular ingredients. Young lady who served us was very nice though and gave good recommendations. Very quiet for a new spot though, I guess because it's nothing too special.

    Service was AMAZING. I have a sesame allergy and was not able to eat the bread that came with the tartar. I asked if there was another type of bread they had, the chef recommended that the server suggest lettuce so I can eat the tartar in a lettuce-wrap style. Upon trying it I was so happy and impressed, the lettuce complimented the tartar so well because of the cilantro it tasted so fresh (although the tartar was already so good on its own and probably with the bread). The best way to describe it was "it was like eating something light and refreshing in a garden on a hot breezy summer day". The server told me the chef was actually really liking this idea and we had some laughs about actually adding it to the menu. I was so overly impressed by the willingness to make it work and really put thought into it to make my visit more enjoyable rather than saying no and leave me tough out my luck on my own. The hostess was also very accommodating of my opentable notes and request for a specific seat (quiet or warmer spot) and gave us options, compared to other restaurants - I really appreciated this as this is often dismissed elsewhere. Love love the effort and customer service here.

    Came here for my wife’s birthday. Food and service was FANTASTIC! Our server Julien was very knowledgeable and polite. Great conversation and recommendations. The Steak Tartare was OUT OF THIS WORLD. I’ve been looking for a good one in Toronto since having it at a restaurant called Barocco in Montreal, and I’ve finally found one at par, if not better! Will definitely be back!

    Amazing experience! From the beginning with the friendly hello's from the staff to the end. Food was fantastic and the service felt personal. The drinks were great and the bartender was kind enough to create some custom drinks. Hoping my Pina Fumada makes it on the menu. ;) Keep up the great service, food and drinks. The is a recipe for success! Cheers.
