This atmospheric restaurant, in a timeless two-storey Victorian house with a year-round back patio, was conceived by restaurant industry veteran Nicki Laborie.

Bar Reyna was designed as an energetic gathering place where the vibe, food and drinks intermix to create a wholly unique restaurant experience. Our menu features an eclectic mix of table snacks and larger plates that traverse the Mediterranean.

Every Thursday Jessica Rose performs live jazz on the winterized back patio and Sundays guests can enjoy 1/2 price bubbly while noshing on the unique brunch menu.

Bar Reyna is available for private events and large groups. Reservations are recommended but walk-ins are welcome!.

The food was okay. The table was too small for tapas and the service was not great. We got food before we go wine. Courses were off. Would have expected more for the price.

the food and service is excellent and the staff have all of the fine touches, however it is way too noisy. a couple cannot hear their conversation. they should have a small quiet area for those who request it

Great spot for a summer night! With a beautiful closed in patio in the back it has the feel of being indoors while still enjoying the outdoor breeze and sky above.
This is mostly a sharing plates menu but the portions are really generous and the food is really great.
I will definitely be back!!

A bit disappointed about the $10 fries. It's more like crispy chips instead of real french fies. So we can not enjoy the taste of the potatoes.
Overall, it's a great restaurant located in Yorkville, but not super fancy, however they do some fantastic salads.

Fantastic restaurant! Beautiful ambience and delicious food! Only thing for me, is it was a bit too dark. As a result, it was quite tricky reading the menu. Our phones flashlights came in handy, otherwise it was a lovely evening out. Definitely will go back!

The food here was really good. My friend and I got the trio dip with bread, Italian fries, and calamari. We ordered our food around 5:30pm. The trio dip came out first (half an hour after ordering), and the fries and calamari didn’t come until nearly 6:45pm. Everyone else around us was asking where their food was and one table beside us even asked for the bill right when the last dish they ordered came for them. They said their kitchen was backed up with orders but the restaurant was barely full (there were many empty tables inside). Nevertheless, the food was pretty good and decently priced.

Hi there,
this restaurant is awesome and I will come back for sure. Food was really tasty and the atmosphere was dreamy and cool at the same time. Good job!
Only thing I would recommend improving are cocktails... below average for an amazing spot like this. Nonetheless, I had a wonderful time! Thank you!

My friend and I had an amazing experience at Bar Reyna! The atmosphere was perfect at our table on the back patio - calming and welcoming with the open ceiling and greenery overhead. Food was phenomenal and wish we could have kept ordering more! I highly recommend this restaurant and we will for sure be going back!

The service was very slow. Was told what we ordered would take 25mins but we didn’t end up getting it for over an hour. The service has been very poor the last couple of times I’ve gone. As well was charged an extra $10 to add shrimp and only got 3 pieces. They never came back to check on how it was so wasn’t able to give that feedback.

This place is a hidden gem. The patio/courtyard is beautiful and we loved all the food. We came at happy hour so tried some cheap eats, everything tasted amazing. The staff were super friendly and helpful, they joked around and made us feel very comfortable. The only issue we had was the proximity of our table to the table next to us. It was hard to focus on our conversation because the two guests were so loud and obnoxious. Once they left, I really enjoyed the place. Will be back for sure!

Bar Reyna had a lovely atmosphere. Unfortunately the service was very slow - we had our initial server (who was lovely) disappear after taking our drink orders. It was about 30 minutes until our food order was taken. We then waited approx 20 mins between each course. The food was decent, but the menu options were limited - I think a couple more green dishes could be added. All in all, it was lovely to sit in such a nice space with friends, but I won't be going back.
