We got a great deal on Travelzoo for this restaurant so decided to try it out. Food was excellent, I had the steak and my partner had the chicken. Both meals were terrific. The appetizers were the best, pulled pork tacos were scrumptious and zesty and the fried calamari was done perfectly. For dessert we had the pecan tart which... More

Stayed at the Renaissance, where the restaurant is located, and had one dinner and three breakfasts at Arriba. The service is friendly and good, the food was well done and generally affordable.

The staff is what makes this place great. The restaurant looks out over the playing field but the staff are exceptional at this place. The Sunday brunch was a pleasant surprise.

I didn't know Arriba existed until. Groupon told me it did. From our home 40 Km away we drove down to Arriba to learn it was the restaurant in the former Skydome or now Roger's Centre. I enjoyed my meal!! Too bad I only bought one groupon. If it want the distance to get downtown TO I would have bought... More

I ate dinner here during a symposium being held on-site because I did not want to leave the hotel. Since I came at a popular time, there was no table available, so I sat at a counter that was bar-height, but not at the bar. I ordered the tiger shrimp and thought it was quite tasty. There was no baseball... More

From entry, it seems more like a formal cafeteria. The ambiance is strange..has two flat screen T.V.'s up. I guess for the sports fanatic, and if there is a game going on, it's worth the time. However, if it is just for the food and the atmosphere, Toronto has many more spots to visit. The service was quite slow. The... More

First time I've eaten here; and to be honest my expectations were not very high...as I figured it was a hotel restaurant, which can be hit and miss. Food was fresh, hot and fast!

I think that hotel restaurants have perhaps improved in the last decade. Nevertheless, I'm always pleasantly surprised to find a good one, and Arriba is such a find. The Trip Advisor reviews suggested that this was good, and I'm happy to support that view. Good food, good service, somewhat expensive.
