Good food, great atmosphere, amazing service

Good food - nice variety, some thing for every taste and no one left hungry. Great atmosphere - casual, music, felt warm & welcoming. Amazing service - attentive, great recommendations, food was served as it was ready and glasses were full. Look forward to another meal here!

At the suggestion of our hotel front desk we walked to Cafe Iberico for a fairly early dinner on a Friday night. We called ahead to see if they took reservations and they told us just to come on over since they had seating available. We thought this was a warning sign, but to our surprise the food was excellent.... More

I went there for my office outing for the Holidays. The place was busy, as expected. The food was delivered in tamely manner but some how the taste was off, kind of greasy and over cooked (patatas bravas, pulpo a la plancha, raxo adobado, platano al caramelo), for tapas I will prefer Cafe Ba-Ba Riba, better presentation and taste. Not... More

In Chi town for business I was craving some tapas, based on many recommendations from the locals I decided to give Iberico a whirl. Ugg.... I walked into the restaurant and the hostess was very friendly but seemed really confused as to why I wanted to sit at the bar, I love sitting at the bar, especially if I am... More

Having recently spent 6 weeks in Spain, we were pleasantly surprised that Cafe Iberico had the atmosphere and flavor and delicious reasonably priced food we found in Spain. The special Gambas(shrimp) dish in butter was a real standout, the chocolate flan in strawberry sauce was a great way to finish a great meal.

First of all, I am from Spain. Second, I really enjoy tapas style restaurants. Third, I am not a snob, I can understand that sometimes exotic cuisines have to adapt to local tastes (as many of the Spanish style tapas bars in Chicago). Said this, this place wouldn't last for a month in Spain. Well, maybe in really touristic areas,... More

We came to Cafe Iberico at 7 pm on a Wednesday night for dinner with our 4 year old and my parents. We were immediately sent to the back corner of the restaurant behind the bussing station. I asked to be seated in the main dining area since there was many tables available but was told by the manager that... More

We come here every time we are in Chicago. On the first visit, we had our usual plancha de pulpo, mixed salad, potato aioli and sangria. On the second time, we tried the lamb and the sardines, which were special that week among others. We invited my brother and his wife to join us. The third time, we invited another... More

I recently visited Ibercio with some friends. I like the variety of different options and sharing size portions. Sangria was good and service was quick; friendly staff and good value for the money!
