"If you enjoy Tapas, this is one of the top places we've found thus far in Chicago. The dishes are wonderful with an eclectic range of flavors from spicy to sweet. The bleu cheese filets, spicy shrimp, burrata and ham and chicken coquettes were particularly popular with the group. Sangria will hit the spot if warm out, but their list of Spanish reds is sufficient to hold up with the food. The service was spot on and ambiance 'nice.' Just enough noise to know it's a happening hangout. Definitely would return. Note: Rarely award 5's so this is very good rating."

"We are a fan of Cafe Ba-ba-reeba, but this time we left underwhelmed. There was a recent update to the menu and you could tell that the chef/cooks were having a tough time with the new items. Overcooked steak and broken claim shell inside of the paella are just a few of the issues we encountered. We notified our server and he brought over some 'on the house' desserts. A manager never came over to apologize for us biting into gritty paella due to the cracked clam shells. We are typically fans of this restaurant, but if this keeps up, we probably won't be coming here any longer ."
