Although there are MANY restaurants near the Renaissance Hotel, we had breakfast and dinner here. The food was very tasty, and prices comparable to local restaurants. The staff was excellent. The breakfast buffet ($24) worked for us. During a baseball or football game you can sit in their lounge and watch the game. You do have to order something, but... More

Though the menu isn't too inventive I appreciate a restaurant that recognizes its own strengths and doesn't try to be something else. Arriba is everything you would want in a high traffic downtown hotel restaurant... Good service (not great, but not negligent. This is good!) decent food that is fresh and well priced with healthy sized portions, and the best... More

My daughter and I ate here on Saturday July 19, for a late lunch. There was a Blue Jays game on, so when a window seat became available my daughter asked if we could move to the seat and this is where the confusion seemed to start. Our waitress seemed to have forgotten about us, our drinks ran dry and... More

This bar/restaurant is a destination every time we are in Toronto to watch the Jays whether or not we are staying in the Renaissance. The service is excellent and the food is very good. The beer selection is excellent and of course with the views of the Rogers Center field thrown in as a bonus. Will always go back.

I won a contest that included a $200 gift certificate to the Arriba so I got a bunch of family together and we went to the restaurant June 8th to watch the Jays game. We didn't know what to expect as none of us had been there before. The restaurant is part of the Renaissance Hotel inside Rogers Centre so... More

We secured a table at the window and watched a Blue Jays game while enjoying our drinks and food. I couldn't believe the place wasn't packed. How can you beat it?? Decent food, excellent drinks, not bad prices and a free game ..... perfect evening! A highlight of our trip!

Like the nice variety of food. Should have more variety more people with dietary restrictions. A little pricey.
