Cafe Iberico

Out of all the tapas and Spani...

Out of all the tapas and Spanish cuisine restaurants in Chicago, that are still open, this is the one that I go back to even though it is not incredible or the best I have had. Cafe Iberico is part bar, part cafe, part dining room, but with the noise and crowd it would do best as just a bar and cafe and drop the dining room act because its impossible to "dine" here in any sense of the word. Couple things to take note of: Best Time-- Don't try to beat the dinner rush here, everyone does that and you end up waiting longer than you would if you were to show up in the middle of a big rush. Go Spanish and grab your meal at the end of the normal dinner hour. I have never waited more than ten to fifteen minutes for a table because everyone is clearing out. If you just want to grab a drink and tapas the bar is your best bet, but you have to be aggressive and get the eye of a bartender early. Remember, reservations are not taken here. Ambiance-- It's definitely a get together with a group of friends and catch up type of place. No matter what room you are in, its loud, some spaces are more cramped than others. It's definitely not a romantic or get to know you place to take a date, but perfect for a blind date or those dates you get roped into with someone your meddling mother met at church. Even if you are sitting right next to someone, you will need to raise your voice to be heard. The Food-- Not the best tapas or Spanish cuisine in Chicago, or that I've had, but take it from someone that has lived in Spain and has tried every tapas restaurant in the city and Chicagoland, its way better than most and the best bet for the money. I always order the paella to test a place out, because there is no middle ground with paella, its either good or inedible. I've had both the Paella Marinera and Paella Iberica and it always comes out great, perfect taste, seafood just right, and overall as good as any 4 star Barcelona restaurant. The tapas are always good, and fast, but some of them can be done in larger portions-- even for tapas. The croquettes are as good as mine. My favorites are the Queso de Cabra and Salpicon de Marisco. The wine list provides something for every dish and taste. The Service- Well, its not self serve, but sometimes it can feel that way. Once we never saw our waiter after ordering- someone entirely different brought our food and one dish never came, nor did our check which we had to retrieve at the front. Other trips have had excellent service, so it depends on the night and who you get. One thing though, the wait staff never seems to be familiar with their wine list, so if you ask for a recommendation based on what you are ordering don't expect help- once I was literally told, "They're all good." Luckily, I am decent at picking depending on what I am eating. The Prices- Like I said earlier, its the best bet for the money. There is another place here in Chicago that I like a bit more, but the prices are double or triple. Expect to pay around $12-$18 for an entree and $6-$9 for any of the tapas.

Delicious!!! Just ate here last night and everything we had was really good. The Portuguese Mussel plate was hands down the best mussels dish that I ever had, I'm serious, it was that good. We had to order another one at the table. The food was simply amazing all around I did not have one mediocre thing, all of it was amazing. This is a small place, and our wait was roughly 45minutes, maybe an hour, it was a birthday for a friend's friend and the whole experience was top notch, from the service, the food, the drinks, and the ambiance is really spanish. Nice Spanish guitar playing. I was really impressed and thought I should write about it.
