    I appreciate a small intimate setting with a small menu which means freshness. Enjoyed two food items (Flores de Calabacin Rellenas; Vieres Crudas) and Mucho Gusto cocktail which has a nice kick. Food items were delicious and honestly I would have ordered the entire menu if I could and definitely will return to try more food items as well as the drinks.

    Food were great, accompanied with even better services (plates were changed for at least 3 times and servers were very attentive, noticed our glass tipped over the second it happened and came help). Tasteful interior decor also brings everything together

    As tapas, dishes were very very small but prices were quite expensive for some subpar, regular ingredients. Young lady who served us was very nice though and gave good recommendations. Very quiet for a new spot though, I guess because it's nothing too special.

    Service was AMAZING. I have a sesame allergy and was not able to eat the bread that came with the tartar. I asked if there was another type of bread they had, the chef recommended that the server suggest lettuce so I can eat the tartar in a lettuce-wrap style. Upon trying it I was so happy and impressed, the lettuce complimented the tartar so well because of the cilantro it tasted so fresh (although the tartar was already so good on its own and probably with the bread). The best way to describe it was "it was like eating something light and refreshing in a garden on a hot breezy summer day". The server told me the chef was actually really liking this idea and we had some laughs about actually adding it to the menu. I was so overly impressed by the willingness to make it work and really put thought into it to make my visit more enjoyable rather than saying no and leave me tough out my luck on my own. The hostess was also very accommodating of my opentable notes and request for a specific seat (quiet or warmer spot) and gave us options, compared to other restaurants - I really appreciated this as this is often dismissed elsewhere. Love love the effort and customer service here.

    Came here for my wife’s birthday. Food and service was FANTASTIC! Our server Julien was very knowledgeable and polite. Great conversation and recommendations. The Steak Tartare was OUT OF THIS WORLD. I’ve been looking for a good one in Toronto since having it at a restaurant called Barocco in Montreal, and I’ve finally found one at par, if not better! Will definitely be back!

    We had a delicious dinner! The tapas were familiar but with very interesting twists and flavors. The presentation was flawless and the service outstanding. Our server Aira made recommendations that we thoroughly enjoyed. We appreciated her professional yet very friendly approach. We highly recommend Chica to other diners.

    Amazing experience! From the beginning with the friendly hello's from the staff to the end. Food was fantastic and the service felt personal. The drinks were great and the bartender was kind enough to create some custom drinks. Hoping my Pina Fumada makes it on the menu. ;) Keep up the great service, food and drinks. The is a recipe for success! Cheers.

    Great food, very pleasant servers, but felt rushed. Servers were at our table every 2 min asking if we want anything else. Asking if we want another glass of wine before even done. It really felt like a fast food restaurant (and it is not).

    Went here with a friend to celebrate her bachelorette and sat at the bar. Our server recommended that if we were feeling adventurous, she would choose stuff for us to send our way. We ended up having 5 great dishes that we might not have picked ourselves, and had a great experience! The drinks were also delicious.

Drinks are very unique. Listen to your waiter, they are very knowledgeable and will help guide you through an amazing Tapas experience. Can’t wait to go back.

    Great service and good ambiance. The food is way too over priced for what you get. The cocktails are decent but certainly not worth the cost they are. You’re paying more for the decor than the food and drinks. Expect to receive a high bill and leave feeling hungry. Much better resto's/bars in the area that have adequately priced food and portions.

    Lovely staff and ambiance, however the value for your meal is ridiculous here. Had a bunch of different plates but by the time they all arrived I was wondering if we had ordered enough food (we had ordered at least 7-8 dishes by this point). My bill was insane for the amount of food I ate - we had to stop by another restaurant afterwards for more food because we hadn’t felt satisfied at all. Potatoes also came out cold which was a huuuuge disappointment- patatas bravas should be your staple for a Spanish restaurant and I’m very disappointed in the turn out. Pretty solid drinks, I was a big fan of the cocktail selection my friends were not into them as much (too strong for them).

    I absolutely loved my experience at Chica. For such a small and busy place, it wasn’t too difficult to get a reservation, which was great. The ambiance is amazing - loved the decor. The staff was great! Super knowledgeable about the food and wines, and also just very friendly and fun. The food - can’t say enough great things. I wish I ordered everything on the menu but I guess I’ll just have to come back to try more! Even the bathrooms were great - super clean and smelled amazing. Also we had a time limit on our table (which is normal and fine) but we were never asked to leave when we went over time. I’m sure that was annoying for us to stay so long but we were catching up after not seeing each other for almost 2 years because of Covid, so that was greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    First time at chica was lovely, I loved the tapas and menu creativity. Only thing is the portions are on the smaller side so not recommended for a group of 3+ if ordering one dish. It’s sister to patria so expect higher prices Loved the cocktails and they def can make a mean espresso martini ( espresso machine FTW ) and the desserts are amazing. Refreshing end to a carb full dinner

    Fantastic food and ambience. Everything we ordered was delicious . Just two areas that would elevate the place; more space between tables and more variation in cocktails. We tried 4 different cocktails and all were on the sweeter side. Otherwise, def. an awesome addition to king west.
