Always a great time

I enjoy food and drinks at Arriba Lounge a number of times throughout the Blue Jays season. We are always pleased with the service and the food. The view of the field is spectacular and sometimes we just stay there to watch the game instead of going inside the dome. It's a wonderful place to catch a game and a great meal.

summerlicious

I went here last year for summerlicious but food wasn't very impressive. But the baseball field view is nice so i decided to go back this year. summerlicious lunch menu is only $15 so considering that you get 3 course meal and watch baseball game, it's a pretty good deal. This year summerlicious menu has improved (at least to me) and food was yummy. i had mussel in white wine sauce , white fish for main, and bread pudding dessert. All three course was very tasty. Service was bit slow but i was watching baseball game so did not mind it very much.

Breakfast was so-so, service excellent

Waffles were underdone (mushy) so I had to send them back, but the server was very good about taking it off the bill. Coffee and juice were fresh and tasty, and i was in good company, so no biggie. Nice place though -- overlooks the field in the Rogers Centre.

We went for Summerlicious and had a great time. Part of the restaurant was under construction but the atmosphere was fine. Our server was great, super friendly and gave recommendations which some of us followed. All the food tasted amazing!

There was construction going on in the Rogers Centre which didn't make for the greatest atmosphere, but otherwise the seating/dining area looked nice. Service - somewhat slow. Food - pasta seemed a bit too heavy with cream/sauce/butter.

I was given a Life Experiences gift card as a gift. I looked forward to the evening as the Blue Jays were playing the Houston Astros on Friday July 7th. All started well as my wife ordered a glass of wine and water was supplied. The waiter took our full order and the appetizers were brought promptly. We were informed that the main course would be served during the 5th inning. It all went downhill from there. We did not see our waiter again for 90 minutes. Water glasses sat empty and there was never an opportunity for my wife to order another glass of wine. As the 7th inning came with no sign of our waiter or our food I complained to the hostess who informed the manager. The manager came over and our food was then served shortly after. Waiter claimed that the kitchen was behind. A good waiter would have informed the customer that this was the case and most would be accepting. We never got such a courtesy. By the time we had completed our meals the ballgame was over. This was supposed to be a Life Experience. It was more like a Disappointing Experience. We were comped the glass of wine as a goodwill gesture. The manager offered us a 15% discount on our next visit. There won't be a next visit!!

All of our friends at the meal, enjoyed the food. The servers were friendly but appeared to be too busy. We were there during a Blue Jays game, and it appeared that they were a bit understaffed to handle the crowd of diners. The food also came out unevenly for our group where some food arrived almost 15 minutes later for some people in our group, but since we were there for the game, it did not present too much of an issue.

The food and service was great. However, being repeatedly told we need to spend more money to meet the minimum spend per person detracted from our enjoyment. Further, as a 3 course meal costs $23 it is very difficult to spend $50 per person. We bought two full bottles of wine and coffee and tea for everyone and still could not meet the minimum spend. The minimum spend for a window table should be more reasonable, like $40 a person for lunch.

We have eaten at Arriba since it first opened. The food never disappoints and the service is usually pretty good - we have had one negative experience in nearly 20 years of visits. (We visited the earlier incarnation of this restaurant before is was Arriba, so I am unclear on when it opened as Arriba, but it was a long time ago.) Our meal last night was fantastic. We all opted to be carnivores and order both steaks on the menu as well as 2 orders of Prime Rib. Each of us received our meal cooked to our specifications. The seasonal vegetables were very tasting and buttery. I recommend two menu items, in particular, the housemade chips and dip - just get the large - trust me. And the bread pudding for dessert. The only caution on the bread pudding is that it is very, very sweet. During a game, make sure to reserve a table by the window in advance, so you aren't disappointed.

Although the food took a little longer than anticipated, it was a busy concert night and the waiter himself was very good and even gave a slight discount because of food delay. Food was good too!

We were seated in the bar even though we had reserved a week previous and yet they were booking walk ins in the dining room. Not impressed. When we questioned the hostess she said that's where we were shown on her seating chart. No interest in checking further. Not impressed.

We love Arriba. The setting is fantastic overlooking the baseball stadium and the servers are very friendly and accommodating. The quality of the food is very good but as with any buffet it is tough to keep the food hot. We have eaten lunch and dinner here before and the food was very good. I would absolutely recommend Arriba restaurant. Great choice if you are in downtown Toronto.

We had a large group of 9 people. Had made reservations for 5:30pm, arrived on time and asked that we place our orders quickly as we had tix for the game. It took them 30 minutes to bring our drink order and take our food order. I mentioned again we were trying to be in out seats for first pitch. They brought our dinner at 6:40pm. The waiter came over at 6:50pm and indicated he needed to clear our table by 7pm and the next guests had arrived. I reminded him he had just brought our dinner but asked him to ensure nobody wanted anything else and to bring me the bill. The manager came over 5 minutes later and very loudly in front of my business guests, indicated we needed to finish our meal quickly and leave as the others needed our table. I reminded her that we arrived at our reservation time, indicated upfront that we wanted to be out by 7pm and that we still had full plates in front of us because they hadn't been able to serve our table in a timely manner. She was making the restaurants failure to serve and turn over tables into my problem and I wasn't about to have my guests choke down their food so she could host her next guests. Awful and disrespectful service. We will never book to go here again. Also, food was blah. I order a salad with salmon that boasted seasonal strawberries. There was 1 strawberry cut into 4 pieces!
