Really enjoyed the white sangria and so many tapas dishes. The bacon wrapped dates, octopus, paella and so many others were amazing! I've been twice now and I'll definitely go back!

Good Paella; would have preferred a bit more socarrat. Tapas delightful; only downside is the place has the acoustics of a boiler factory.

After an afternoon of visiting the One of a Kind art festival at the Merchandise Mart, we had a relaxing dinner of tapas and sangria. They have a gluten free menu which was an added plus. Wonderful service.

Stopped in for 'snack' on Sunday, about 5:00 PM. No wait for table...although they started taking names after we were seated. We enjoyed the a few of the specials-Trios of Soup and the Seared Tuna in Black Bean Sauce. Soups were good, but the tuna...wow!...More

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Chicago; the tapas here will bring you right to Madrid. The paella is some of the best I've had at a restaurant, and the sangria is great as well.

I lived in Madrid and toured throughout Spain. This place is amazing. The tapas are served and made in true Spanish style. While I have tried everything on the menu at least once. I usually get the fried squid, mushrooms and patata ali oli ....More

Hello, I don't think that Cafe Iberico sells cheeses not made in Spain. But they do carry a decent selection of Spanish cheeses. From what I understand is gallo azul is not Spanish cheese. The selection of cheeses they do... More

Pay the meter on the same block if available, it is totally worth it & is cheaper than valet. Do be sure to read the no parking signs, they are not always easy to spot unless you check the entire block.

I would say they are very reasonable. I can go with about 7 or 8 people and not go past $200 depending upon what is ordered, including drinks. Tapa servings are meant to be shared so order several.
