    Great food and drinks, but the service was a bit slow and it was night club loud at 6pm. Bring your concert voice if you want to have a conversation across the table. Otherwise the decor and environment was enjoyable and the staff were very kind.

    It’s quite expensive. The valentines menu says $99Pp but you share as a couple and the food portion is very small. The food came in cold. We reserved a table and asked to change and they could not accommodate even though we reserved. There are far better restaurants out there for value, would pass this one.

    We were extremely disappointed with this experience. The portions were very small, especially for the price. For $100 per person, you would at least expect a dessert you wouldn’t have to share. The server repeatedly bumped into us when walking past because the tables were too close together. She even sprayed some cleaner onto our food while cleaning the table next to us. Overall not a great experience and would not return.

    It is too expensive for the portion size and we ordered a bread for a sauce of a plate and for 3 small slices (it was an extra small slices of bread, they charged us 7 dollars for the bread). It was the first restaurant that I have paid for a slice of bread, when we had ordered 6 more dishes.

    I recently had the opportunity to dine at CHICA, a popular restaurant in the entertainment district, during Toronto's Winterlicious event. I was blown away by their all-you-can-eat tapas, available for $55 per person. Their tapas' diverse range of flavours was an incredible culinary experience that left my taste buds rejoicing. The quality of the ingredients used in their dishes was exceptional, making each bite an exquisite treat. This restaurant's tapas are a testament to the richness of Spanish cuisine. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a unique and adventurous dining experience in the heart of winter.

    The food was absolutely amazing! Delicious flavors on most items. I purchased the brunch. Some of the items were well made and had great flavors. Some of the items were simple and uninspired. One of the menu items was just a piece of bread with a cold slice of cheese on it. When you spend 55$ for a meal, it feels insulting when the items are so basic, you can make it at home. Dont get me wrong. The menu items that were good were amazing! I feel like there were not enough extraordinary items to justify spending that money.

    Terrible experience. Food was mediocre. We arrive 15 minutes early and the hostess marked as a no-show. To follow, I have severe allergies and brought out in hives this night so clearly the allergies weren’t taken seriously and the cherry on top was being told we had to move to another four seated table because another reservation came in and had our table yet they were BOTH four seater tables-made absolutely no sense. Will not return and will not recommend to anyone.

    The place doesn't live up to its Michelin guide recommendation. The food is okay, but the ambience and the service are pretty bad. We came on a Saturday night at 6pm for a dinner with friends. The music was incredibly loud - so loud we could feel the vibrations from the speakers above us - and it was challenging to have a simple conversation. The hostess/waitress who was taking care of our table could not look more disinterested. Nobody took the time to greet us or introduce the menu to us (for a place recommended by Michelin especially). We were just given the menus and left alone for about 30 minutes. Then, when we ordered a bottle of wine, it took another 30 minutes. Once we finally placed the food order, the food came fairly quickly. It was tasty, but not worth enduring the unfriendly slow service and the anxiety-inducing levels of noise. Save your money.

    The music was so loud it was unpleasant. It was so warm at our table that it was uncomfortable for all 5 of us at the table. There were no high chairs or booster seats for children. The food and staff were very good. I would recommend but not a highly as some other restaurants in the neighbourhood.

    The noise level was so high my iPhone watch sent me a noise level warning me that 30 minutes at that level could result in temporary hearing loss. We went out with our friends and could barely talk. We were yelling back and forth. The food and service however were excellent. But I won’t go back due to the noise level.

    Though the servers were wonderful, we found the food and drinks failed to meet our expectations. The Ahi Tuna and Croquettes were decent and the most memorable part was our Crème Brûlée, but the Pork Belly and Calamari were disappointing. The Calamari was rubbery, flat and seemed frozen. It didn't look like the pictures seen online. Also, would not recommend the cocktails we decided to try. I believe they were the Luz Rojo (very sweet and sour) and the other one was meant to be a coffee/espresso flavour but sincerely tasted like cough syrup. We're always trying to find and experience something new to us, but as lovely as the staff were, Chica didn't hit the mark.

    Great food and drinks, service started off good but then we were given a different server mid-dinner who was clearly new. Kept approaching and interrupting my conversation with my date. I was also pushed out after 2 hours, would have been nice to know in advance that there was a 2-hour seating so I could have paced dinner better without feeling rushed to pay and leave.

    Overall an amazing experience, the ambience was beautiful, music enjoyable and the food was fantastic!! We had the croquettes, beef tartar, salad and calamari. A delish experience! The only thing that was lacking was the wine, full body red from Spain was not my fave. I think the wine list could use a do over.
