If you like tapas, this is a restaurant you MUST visit. In addition to a large menu, there are specials. I love to start with the avocado salad special; it's amazing! And--while you're sampling wonderful appetizers and sea food--keep in mind that the goat cheese cake is to die for. Save room for a slice!

What's special about this place is that Chef Virgillio is always looking for ways to improve his creations. As a result, diners are always treated to something new--and interesting.

Over the years I've brought many friends to this restaurant. All have returned--with or without me!

I love this restaurant because the food is different every time I visit. True, I always order the avocado salad special (thankfully, all my friends love avocado), but the courses that follow are always different. For example, while I'm not a fan of ordering soup in a tapas restaurant, Virgilio's clam bisque is to die for. And--I always choose several items from the specials. This week the fish in sauce was amazing. Finally, save room for the goat cheese cake. This week it's blueberry!

Always great specials. The tapas on the menu are excellent as well.
It was a seafood night. We had shrimp in garlic, brandies mayonnaise shrimp, grilled squid and a red snapper with clams. Super fresh and delicious. The Spanish omelette and patatas bravos excellent.
We had a chocolate espresso sponge cake for dessert. Spot on!
The only negative is the meh interior but who needs sleek when the food is so good.

Cafe Marbella is probably my favorite restaurant. I love to begin with the avocado salad special and end with the goat cheese cake. In between, you can have countless hot or cold appetizers--in quantities to share--as well as a main course from Chef Virgilio's specials. We tried the scallops; wonderful!

If you're a fan of tapas, you need to visit this place!

Wonderful dinner of delicious tapas! Staff was flexible in accommodating one extra person in our party reservation. Hot and cold tapas, plus tapas specials, as well as fresh desserts and various coffees were all delicious! We had a wonderful group dinner!

If you like tapas, this will become your favorite restaurant. We ordered some old favorites--the avocado salad special, the salmon with blueberry sauce, and the wonderful goat cheese cake--but we also tried new things--the shrimp salad and pork tenderloin. We even tried a new fish as well as a mango tart. Everything was delicious. Virgilio is an amazingly creative chef! I strongly recommend this restaurant.

Cafe Marbella is possibly my favorite restaurant in Chicago. I'm sure I've reviewed them before. We were there a few nights ago and had yet again a fantastic meal. Only thing I'll say for now is that the nightly specials continue to change and continue to amaze. Go there!

We love coming to your restaurant. The food is consistently good and fresh and the service is very on top of its game. The owner is very welcoming and greets us when we come in. The menu is amazing and the specials are different and creative. The only comment I would have is that sometimes it feels strange sitting in the main area with the lights off in the other room that is visible. We are happy that we found you. When we found Marbellas, we found our favorite tapas place!

Cafe Marbella is one of my favorite restaurants. This time I was having dinner with 3 of my high school friends. Everyone loved the food. We started with the avocado special salad and the stuffed avocado that's on the regular menu. Next, we chose 4 entrees from the specials: cod, salmon, chicken, and scallops. Everything was delicious. For dessert we split 2 slices of goat cheese cake. We also enjoyed Spanish coffee.

If you like tapas, you really need to check out this restaurant. As I told Maria, who owns this place along with her genius husband Chef Virgilio, he NEVER rests on his laurels. Instead, he tries new ideas. Who would have thought that blueberry sauce would work with salmon and that introducing carrot to a goat cheese cake recipe was a great idea?

Check out this restaurant if you like interesting food!

Food was excellent and there were many choices to please the palettes of a very diverse group of eaters. Please looks a little run down. It doesn't detract from the food or service, but it is hard to sit on a bench for a long time.

I've been to Cafe Marbella several times and it has always been great! We brought a group of 7 this time and I had made reservations ahead of time. They seated us right away, kept the food and sangria coming and best of all, did not try to hurry us out the door when we were done eating. We all tried each other's orders and everything was delicious. Some highlights were the Shrimp with garlic, avocado salad, grilled calamari and manchego cheese plate. We had a great time!

My first time here and it was really enjoyable from beginning to end. Service was genuinely friendly without ever intruding and the food was delicious! I can’t wait to go back and try more of the menu. And it was quiet enough so that you could have an easy conversation with someone at your table. This place is a real find!

The food here was so scrumptious! My only recommendation is this: if you want to eat your tapas over a period of time, let the waitstaff know to stagger the delivery. We were served too many all at once.

We almost always have good food here and tonight was no exception. We like to bring our own wine and pay the corkage fee, but they have a full bar now. Had a variety of tapas, including clams and pasta, scallops, albondigas, and ribs in coffee bbq sauce. Enjoyed it very much.

Expect an amazing meal. The chef-owner is very creative. This week's sea scallops will be different from last week's--but equally delicious. There's always a new preparation.

If you like avocados, begin with the special salad that includes bacon and goat cheese. Try the warm portabello mushrooms, too. Then, check out the seafood specials. They're always wonderful. And--if you still have room--there's Spanish pizza on the back of the menu. Save room for the goat cheese cake: it's to die for!

Be aware that there's construction going on at Milwaukee and Bryn Maur, but don't let that deter you. If you're southbound on Milwaukee, you can make a u-turn and park in front of the restaurant.
