Amazing food and attentive service. Greeted immediately and given a drink menu as we waited for our table which only took less than 5 minutes. Love the ambiance and shareable food. Already looking forward to our next visit! Egg rolls and Korean fried chicken a must!
Great birthday dinner spot!
The food was amazing but service was pretty terrible. We got seated, ordered drinks and then waited a few minutes and ordered our appetizer. The food came out before our cocktails and then she completely forgot our other drink order. When she finally brought the second round of drinks we had already completed our entrees so we really didn’t even want them. The food was outstanding though so we will definitely give it another shot! Maybe it was just a busy night?
I found Arbella on Yelp and went out on a limb to try it during a trip to Chicago. Of a weekend of restaurant-touring, Arbella was the standout experience of the trip. Their cocktails are creative, unique, and delicious. Their food is a delectable tour around the world, putting an inspired twist on many of the foods you know and love. The Arbella was unforgettable-- I will certainly be back next time I'm in Chicago.
P.s. Ask about how they make their ice. Fascinating!
Great happy hour menu with rotating cocktails! Our food was delicious and the portion was huge for only $5. Knowledgeable staff and good selections. Highly recommend!
Great for date night or to grab a small bite with friends. The service is horrible though. Not enough staff on a busy night. No hostess when you walk in and it is unclear who to talk to when you made reservations in advance.
Great tapas! Beef skewers outstanding. Squash flatbread light and delicious...
Reservations were not on time and not prepared for
Great scene, ambiance, loved the atmosphere and DJ music (we were there just as it started at 9pm). The food menu was very small and limited, but the cocktail menu was large and we tried a few different ones and none disappointed.
Great cocktails and the flat bread was to die for! Make sure to make s reservation because it fills up fast
We were disappointed after reading all the positive reviews. This is more of a bar that serves food than a restaurant. It was very dark and our server had very little interest in explaining the drink menu or recommending options. The food was fine - but more like high end Costco appetizers. We ordered an Old Fashion and a specialty cocktail that was supposed to be a mix between an Old Fashion and a Manhattan. The Old Fashion was fine - but not remarkable. The specialty drink was dark brown and cough syrupy. I would never order that again. In summary, the restaurant was a miss for dinner - better for going to grab drinks and get a snack.
So much fun picking out drinks to try. The atmosphere is really cool, and the music selection was on point.
Too crowded. But enough space to maneuver and very little food options.
Amazing cocktails. Hits every palette from frozés to Smokey boozy. Every tapa we tried was delicious- especially the baos!
Arbella was very cute and energetic. Our server was attentive, helpful and sweet. Loved the concept of "drinks from around the world," and both mine and my friends drinks were amazing (Smokey the Bear & Rising Sun). Would defintely recommend for a date or as a place to go for a different drink experience.
Everything was delicious! Great variety of global food and drinks to choose from. Our waitress made great recommendations. They play really good music and it’s not too loud, so you can definitely have a conversation. Overall a great experience, planning to go back soon to try more food and drinks.
Went for happy hour to grab a drink and a snack before an appointment. The seasonal flatbread was amazing! We were very satisfied with the food and the drinks were delicious, plus the happy hour deals kept is very reasonably priced.
The menu I found on their website didn't match the menu in the restaurant, which wouldn't be a problem except we picked this place because of an item listed on the online menu but wasn't available upon arrival.
Otherwise it was a good place.
Awesome place! Everything was outstanding
This was my second time at Arbella and we had a great time like the first time. Great drinks and great service. Our waiter kept us laughing and had great recommendations for drinks. I can’t wait to come back again
Phenomenal experience all around. Excellent playlist, incredibly well thought out drinks and the food was much more than we could have ever expected. Thank you so much!
Popular, good food and drink, but music was too loud for any conversation.
Very cool cocktail bar. Great service from the bartenders. Food was great and the vibe is cool and energetic. A bit pricy but worth every penny.
Cocktails were amazing, if a bit pricey, but the happy hour specials were well worth it. I only tried appetizers, but yummy, loved the empanada!
Great cocktails and tapas. We practically ordered everything on the menu
Great date spot- good cocktails and fun food options
The vibe, the food, the drinks were amazing! Arbella's staff was very knowledgeable and provided an air of fun.
Stu was an awesome server. Food and drinks arrived quickly and their happy hour menu is spot on. Will be back many more times.
The burger is a must eat even if you've been beefless for two years like my friend who ate a piece. Absolutely one of the best burgers I've ever had. The drinks are also delicious.
stop playing gangster rap @ 5PM
doesn’t even go with your overall theme
Great craft cocktail lounge!!! Plus the food is great. Popular on weekends will encourage to make reservation
Service was awful. The waitress kept interrupting our conversation to give her two sense. The air conditioning was up so high that we were freezing with coats on in June. When we brought this up to the server she basically said that there was nothing she could do. Thank goodness we had a GILT coupon bc it would have definitely not have been worth the price otherwise. Cocktails were delicious so maybe just go for that.
This was my first time at Arbella and I really enjoyed myself. The food and drinks were great. Presentation of them was amazing! Our waiter, Paige, was a great time and made the experience enjoyable. Can’t wait to come back again.
Great spot with delicious food. Asia is awesome and I’m h service is top notch. Overall fun, energetic experience. Try the holy grail, you won’t be disappointed.
Was surprised to see a lot of speciality drinks available! Found out after my visit that you can request your drinks to come Frozen! The food was very good! Small but shareable plates. Have to come back hungry so I can try more food! Overall a nice experience!
Our service and food were great! The cocktails the bartender came up with were awesome. Definitely will be going back soon!
I always love the cocktails here. The music can get loud, but still a fun place for people in their 30s and 40s that want a fun night without the club scene.
Great atmosphere. Cool but not pretentious. We’ll definitely be back.
Great service, and great cocktails. The food was ver good, would definitely come back!
I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I will come back with my friends
