Food was amazing and our server, Tess, was friendly and extremely helpful with our food & wine selection. The Salmon Ceviche was delicious as was the tuna hand roll, Swiss Chard & Kale Empanada, chopped salad with strawberries and blueberries- very crunchy and fresh, as well as the Eggplant with tomatoes and onions.

Food was phenomenal; our server seemed distracted and we had to ask for a dish that never arrived but otherwise he was fine. Will definitely be back!

Overall it’s okay. The ambiance is very pretty. Food is mediocre. They claim it’s ready to eat and “to share” but they serve only TWO small empanadas for $15. Go there for drinks not for food.
Cocktails were delicious.

Our waitress was very laissez faire, but it seems to be the service “style” as the last time we were there it was a similar experience. Would recommend the food but with a warning that service is lacking.
Brunch experience has been better.

Food is awesome. Service, not so awesome. Took 40 minutes to get our first drinks (may be a result of covid staffing issues, so I'll give em a break) :-/ sat on the patio side with the noisy, massive A/C Units (never sat on that side before) . Having said that, food was so so good and I love the ambiance there. So, still recommend :)

Cabra did a great job providing service and having organized safety procedures for COVID. Temperatures were taking at check in and masks required. Menus are given via a QR code on your phone. The music was great in the background and food was delicious. Will hopefully be back soon!

The worse service I have had in Chicago! We spent $400 for 3 people and we had to ask to get water. It was not a pleasant experience for a first time Cabra visitor.

This was our 3rd time at Cabra & decided to meet with some friends for weekend brunch. The food and service in the actual restaurant was amazing BUT the service outside while checking in (during COVID) was terrible. We didn’t know that there was a separate check in station outside so someone inside of Hoxton told us to go outside & let them know before we go up. Right when I got outside, the lady that checks you in started screaming at us to take 2 steps back so we did (we’re also wearing masks) and then frantically screams even louder to tell us “STAND ON THE CIRCLE”. I’m not sure that screaming at us the way she did was super necessary and quite honestly ruined our mood before we even sat down to dine. We found out that many other diners had the exact same experience with this woman as well. To Cabra: please hire people who are able to express themselves in a calm and pleasant manner.. especially considering how much $ we spend when we come.

Very nice experience ..my husband and I made reservations to Cabra for a nice dinner date. The waitress was extremely helpful in helping us decide what to choose. We don't eat pork and we don't consume alcohol so our choices were limited, however , she was extremely courteous and attentive to our requests. Thank you for a wonderful time!

Absolutely love the rooftop dining at Cabra. The ambiance is magical from the views to the music. The vegetarian and meat dishes were superb; I also ordered the ahi and crab seafood dishes; and was disappointed with the lack of elaborate flavor profile compared to what I have come to expect from Stephanie Izzards restaurants. I have heard that the ceviche is good however I have an allergy to ginger so I wasn’t able to try it. The cocktails were also really tasty, and the bar stuff is super friendly! I would definitely come back

Had mixed expectations about this establishment. Not a big fan of sister restaurants - Girl & The Goat, Duck Duck Goat.

Our server, Becky, was awesome. On a rainy evening, got the best table in the house - indoor but close to the pool. Highly recommend Alpacas My Bag. Another server accidentally got a Ceviche to our table. Looked watery. Unsure if we going to try it on our next visit.

The worst service I have received yet in Chicago. I was very disappointed because the food was delicious and the ambience is so visually pleasing. The female server who was our waitress by the pool for dinner this week was rude, condescending, and clearly did not want to help us. It was pretty obvious she just wanted to go home. If you are in the business of customer service, you need to do MUCH better! BEWARE

I requested outdoor seating using opentable and we were forced to sit indoors when there were plenty of seats available outdoor. When asked we were told we cannot sit there and it is for others. Looks like the put opentable reservations in the bottom of the list. Very disappointed with the service.

Upon arrival, the gentleman at check in was very dry and unfriendly. Our waitress was even more emotionless, with absolutely no personality. Her lack of interest in serving us or even checking on us was strongly apparent. We were excited to celebrate our sister’s birthday and try some delicious food. However, our ceviche was just plopped down on the table and appeared very unappetizing due to its presentation. We were very polite, positive, and kind throughout our visit, but left after the appetizer. Decor was beautiful, but the vibe just put us all in a glum mood until we left.

Our waiter was the man! We had a waitress at first that completely ignored our table for 35 mins and then they said they were going through a “shift change” but the waitress was just afraid of our table...wouldn’t even come close. Thankfully the waiter we got was super chill. But there were multiple times where the staff was pointing fingers at our table and talking about us. Frankly ruined the experience and made our party very uncomfortable. Very weird experience, but give major props to our SECOND waiter because he went above and beyond.

Lovely outdoor rooftop patio which transports you to a wonderful adventure. Service (in the world of Covid) was superior and we certainly felt that the team is taking every precaution in making your experience at Cabra safe and special.

Drinks were outstanding and every dish we ordered was delicious, unique and noteworthy.

It is a bit loud with an energetic vibe so if that isn’t your thing, I would recommend coming early before it gets too crowded.

Overall a truly wonderful dining adventure.
