Magical. Was so pleasantly surprised to be seated in the idden charming back patio with amazing service and delicious food.
A bit loud upstairs for dining but a great vibe of you are loud too! Great food.
This is a little gem in Yorkville that we recently went to for lunch. The food was great and loved the vibe of the place. They have a hidden back patio that is heated and covered in winter. It was lovely!
Very nice and friendly customer services. Cozy indoor patio is always prepared with cushions and blankets for each table. But I guess u won't gonna use it since the patio is pretty heated up with air heating machines above the seats. Recommend to wear not too thick clothes inside of ur coat even when you are going to the place during the winter.
Overall, it was very pleasure experience of having brunch at the place.
Food was very disappointing , ambiance was ok . Noise level was very disturbing and there was a fishy odour all around the place which wasn’t very appetizing . Service people were nice and very friendly .
I really like the decor of this place. It was unique modern and pretty. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and the vibe was great. I also enjoyed the cocktails and the food as well.
The place is Morocco meets European cuisine, all very tasty and the interior is unique and welcoming. We were a group of four, all of us loved our food and thought the staff was very friendly!
Everything was perfect! The food, the wine, the ambiance. I would highly recommend Bar Reyna to anyone looking for great food and a great experience!
It was expensive with very small portions, the place was nice though
Had dinner with a friend last Friday first time for us both, amazing experience! We were treated so well, the servers were awesome & very attentive. Beautiful atmosphere in the back with all the lights and the food was delicious, can't say enough about this place!
Slow. My first time so I Reserved through OpenTable and confirmed over the phone. Asked the hostess if 90 minutes was sufficient and she said yes and she’d make a note in our reservation. Our waiter was eloquent and charming, but the service was inattentive. Great at taking orders, not at making sure you were served or following through.
We ordered cocktails and dinner within 20 mins of arriving.
It took a short time for our dips and croquettes to arrive, delicious but the bread was burnt. It took another 40 minutes for our fries to show up after we asked about the rest of the food. The fries were way too salty and lacking sauce. We never got to eat our halloumi because after more than an hour of waiting we cancelled the order. This is not complex food to prepare and it’s stuff they make everyday. The waiter was not on top of his tables and should have communicated delays.
We left hungry. At least the concert was amazing because dinner was not.
The lamb shank baklava is well-seasoned and has a nice combination of different textures.
Don't get the table by the keyboardist. Sound check seriously required. Food is underwhelming, fine for a snack in the summer not for dinner in the winter. Cocktails are well done.
One of the best dining experiences I have had in a long time. I love restaurants that serve small plates. It is such a great way to dine. The menu had something for every taste and the food was served at the perfect pace and in the perfect order.
Our server was fantastic. She made us feel welcome and was perfectly attentive.
Thank you Bar Reyna for making my birthday extra special.
We loved the food here, but found the portion size for the lamb popsicles was underwhelming considering it was meant to be a sharing plate... very little meat on the bone. Otherwise the food was delicious!
The service was spotty and perfunctory, as if we were an afterthought to the tables upstairs.
We were charged the regular price for the oysters, even though it was Tuesday at the time they were a dollar each. When I called the next day to have that corrected, I was offered that the overcharge be returned to my credit card, but nothing else by way of apology.
The food is good, but not spectacular, and certainly not good enough to make up for that level of poor customer service.
Beautiful restaurant with excellent service and food. Would definitely come back and would recommend to others. The patio is just gorgeous!
Cold in the back room. Very cold!!
Great service, poor food. Martini was awful.
Trio of dips with crudités and breads could have been put together from my fridge...shameful. Raw veg thrown onto board with breads/pitas thrown on top. Two dips likely store bought with one other couldn’t decide what it was - garlic cloves in oil? Brutal.
Appetizer of lamb baklava was tiny and odd.
Main course lamb chops were cold with some indescribable cole slaw?
All together very disappointing. Second time here after first great time last year. New owner? Different menu? Never again.
Live music on the back patio was amazing. Tons of heat lamps, pillow, and blankets. Very cute.
Started with the scotch egg which was good and the zucchini fritters which was regular. I Had the Charred Octopus, but didn't find that the flavours went together well and ended up with a lamb pide. It could of used more meat sauce . The tacos were the best of the 3 mains.
The decor and ambiance here is gorgeous. I was a bit disappointed with the portion size. I ordered the avocado toast and they serving was dainty...one slice of toast with a side salad is small for the $14 price tag. I took the waitress' suggestion and added a poached egg which arrived cooked to order but, cold.
Went for lunch with a colleague from work. The atmosphere was quite humdrum. We ordered very shortly after being seated. The wait for our appetizer was about 15 minutes. We then had to wait a further 40 minutes for our mains. We did not receive our mains until about an hour after arriving. When we asked about our food, the server whom we had not see in some time, said it would be just a few more minutes but did not apologize or even acknowledge how long it was taking. Nobody at any point acknowledged that our food took much too long to arrive or apologized. There was little to no attention to customer service in this place and a very subdued atmosphere.
The overall atmosphere was good. I was excited to come here for the calamari which was actually unavailable the day I went. Further, it would have been nice to have been seated downstairs rather than upstairs since we made reservations and the restaurant was almost empty. The service was fine. The drink menu you looked fantastic, if I come again I
ll be trying out some drinks.
Went with several friends for Saturday brunch. The food, service, ambiance were all wonderful. Definitely order the fries, they are spectacular!
First time I was in Bar Reyna a year ago, and we loved everything: the place, ambiance, food and service. This time, everything was really poor. The food arrived separately: I got my salad first, then after 5-7 minutes my friend's shakshuka arrived... and we were waiting for another 5-7 minutes for another friend's burger to arrive. My friend ordered the sauce which comes with the burger to be on the side. It arrived on the burger. Reyna salad was just a bunch of greens - not filling at all even though it was recommended to me by a waitress who said it was a very filling salad. Very disappointing experience. Would not recommend to anyone.
We had an amazing time at the restaurant minute we were welcomed at the door. Our server along with everyone worked there were very friendly and professional. Their service was excellent. Food choices were unique even to the desserts!! We ordered several items and shared. All were excellent!! Memorable items are kale salad with fried chick peas, chicken tacos and burger, butternut squash cake, just about everything! Thanks to open table, we found this restaurant as we were just in the neighbourhood and wanted to go some place right at that moment.
We will be back again. Thank you
Patio was requested and not granted. We were put upstairs and temperature was extremely uncomfortable to the point where half the party wanted to leave. Would recommend saving patio for reservations
Despite being questioned by OpenTable if we had upheld our reservation, Bar Reyna was fantastic. Perhaps Open Table reservation follow up process needs to be assessed.
Great restaurant. Had the zucchini fritters they were unreal, Greek fries huge and delicious and tacos and it was all amazing. Great place if you like to share. Can’t wait to go back and try new things
the food and ambiance of this place is fab, but the service (our server in particular) was really disappointing. i would give it another chance as the ambiance and food were wonderful
My husband and I came to Bar Reyna for brunch with my parents and sister. My mom was looking for oysters and when I saw the menu had a Mediterranean flare, I knew it would speak to her Moroccan roots. The drinks were absolutely fabulous and strong which helped make up for the price ($14-$30 per drink). Three of us had the burger which was nice, but maybe the bun was a bit too much for the size of the patty. I had the avo on toast which was simple but very nice and my mom had the 4-cheese pide which I thought was also quite nice. The 4-cheese mix had a cheese in the blue family which I'm not a fan of, but still enjoyed it. We also shared a basket of fries which were delicious. We all loved the ambiance on the heated back patio but really pretty. Both servers who helped us were super nice and let us enjoy a very relaxed and drawn out brunch. This is a really nice spot in Yorkville with non of the pretentious attitude that some of the other restaurants offer. I would recommend this place for nibbles, drinks, and brunch. The biggest downside was the cost which was a bit high.
server kept coming to ask if we were still working on our meals (every 10 minutes) which got really annoying. This, even though there's no one else in the restuarant so I don't know what the rust was.
The only thing I’d say to the restaurant is to consider changing the way they make fries. The very thin stringy fries are honestly hard to enjoy and kinda pointless.
This was the perfect place for a tête-à-tête between friends. We had time only for appies and a drink each but I will be back for the full dining experience ~ I’m sure it will be stellar.
Great attitude by all staff - friendly and positive.
Our server was excellent, friendly and accommodating. She made great recommendations and was super attentive!!
Wait staff very attentive and helpful. Food very tasty and fresh. Great ambience - patio an exotic delight.
Will definitely return and recommend
Loved everything I ate and loved the atmosphere.
