Hands down one of my favorite places in the city to grab a drink and a small bite to eat! Pitchers of sangria for $17 in River North is a steal!!! I highly recommend the red over the white, and absolutely love their mojitos! You can come as just a couple or a large group of people and easily be... More

I had already been sufficiently stuffed at Rok Akor, but the crew was in want of good sangria. The Sangria was not as sweet as preferred, but the crowd was endless flowing into this place, a very popular Tapas joint. I will have to come next time for the food and give it a try. I love great places you... More

We waited a frustratingly inordinate amount of time for literally each thing we ordered. And we weren't even in any hurry! I ordered lamb and after 45 minutes or more of waiting for it, flagging the waiter only to be told it had been burned and another one was coming but then not getting it, I canceled it and we...

I have been before, but just went again and was just so very impressed with the service that I wanted to share. They were extremely attentive and more than willing to explain anything. The food as always was amazing as well, something to for every taste!! Definitely strongly recommend a visit here.

I really like this place my Persian friend took me for a dinner. I love the fresh appetizer and main dishes. I love the spices used for a bread dipping and tapas sizes and taste

My wife and two daughters visited Cafe Iberico based upon a rating in Chicago Magazine. We were staying at the Hotel Felix in River North. Cafe Iberico is about a block and a half away. It is much larger inside than it appears outside. We went around 3:00 in the afternoon, so there was no crowd. The place is nicely... More

For those who really appreciate authentic Spanish cuisine, this is the only restaurant of which I'm aware that serves it in the city of Chicago. There are other pretenders, but this serves the best dishes and even has food for sale, such as cheeses, sausages and wines. The only problem -- and it is the only problem I've ever experienced...

Tapa plates or entrees. You can do either here. We ordered four tapas of beef, shrimp, goat cheese, and a green salad. All were loaded with flavor. One plate was an error and was quickly replaced with the correct one at no extra charge. The Spanish beer was nice. Lively spot with diverse diners, parties of "ladies on the town"... More

We visited Cafe Iberico for a late lunch on a weekday. The service was quick and friendly. We sampled several plates to share, including a vegetable paella. Really tasty food and a small but nice selection of wines to accompany.
