As always, great food, attentive service. A lovely time on their covered, heated back patio even in muggy, rainy weather in December. The lamb meatball potpie was delicious and a very generous portion. Can't wait to be back.

we were disappointed that it was not mentioned on the website the cutoff between lunch and dinner.
When we're about to order, to our surprised lunch/dinner is not until 4PM!!! We tried to clarify to the server, the response was "oh! so, you haven't been here?" Duh? we wont be ordering for lunch menu if we were.
After driving an hour from Vaughan to Yorkville, we discovered that the only menu available at 2PM was BRUNCH ( nothing there really for the people who missed lunch already)
Unfortunately, we selected this restaurant for the tapas they offer for LUNCH/DINNER menu,
that said, cut off should add on the website. It was supposed to be a celebration of our 9th year anniversary. That was a disaster!!!
In fairness, the smoked salmon that we ordered was not that bad or we were that hungry :))

I would recommend for personal dining/cocktails. I would not recommend this for a business lunch, service is not polished enough. Food is excellent but the Reyna Salad is not as good as it used to be.

Very cold in front room, even with blankets. Music very loud - made it difficult to converse
Excellent food. But would wait until summer to go back.

Went for lunch. When we arrived the music was so loud we had to make a special request to turn it down

Also the outdoor heaters were on even though the room is not out side eating in a sauna. Very uncomfortable.

Finally prices have increased on their standard menu by about 30%. The waiter said it was COVID’s fault

Food was average nothing to rave about

Overall will not be back

Food was okay. Ordered the short rib grilled cheese(too salty)and my friend had the shakshuka.( A little on the Tarte side she said).

The setting and ambiance is nice. The waitress didn't look like she wanted to be there or was a happy person overall, that alone was not a pleasant experience.

I went to Bar Reyna with a group of 8 people for a business dinner. They were very accommodating with a last-minute party size change. We had the group menu and all of the dishes were amazing! We especially enjoyed the Reyna Salad and the Chicken Shawarma. The Lamb Baklava was to die for! The pace of the food coming out of the kitchen was good. The cocktails were unique and delicious. The Ricotta Fritters were an excellent way to end the night.

Wonderful staff, yummy food and great menu! The heaters in the back got really intense after an hour. Would have been nice not to feel like we were getting backed but Im sure you need to keep them going or it gets really chilly back there.

Great service, food and drink. No complaints. I think we can all appreciate that finding reliable staff in these difficult times is very challenging and so it was great to also see the management taking the time to train young recruits into the industry. The room acoustic design in the rear atrium area (where we were seated) is a bit too lively for my liking. A few more absorptive materials might be a good idea.

One of the reasons why I consistently go to Bar Reyna and recommend it is the warm down to earth friendly service. Last evening again did not disappoint. I wish I got the same of our server - she was outstanding! And the food was excellent as well. Kudos to your team!

Went to Bar Reyna for a birthday brunch. The ambience was lovely and the food was excellent, but it took 1.5 hours for us to get our order. It turns out that the oven was broken. I understand these things can happen, I only wish they communicated with us a little better to inform us for the reason for the delay instead of having us wait and wait without any information.

I would go back because overall we enjoyed our experience. However, I hope our service will be better next time around.

We sat at the back and loved the vibe and ambiance. Food was superb - favourite item was the Lamb Baklava - wow.
The new General Manager was very friendly, helpful and attentive. Server was lovely.
It was a great experience all 'round and I will most certainly return.

Amazing back patio, excellent food, good cocktails, great service. The only drawback was the music was a little too loud and towards the end of our meal it was made even louder....will be retiring for sure, and will request the music to be turned down a touch if too loud!

Service was prompt and friendly.
