"High-quality" Spanish small plates form a "festival of flavor" at this spendy West Loop wine bar from a husband-and-wife team, whose "lively" yet intimate space with exposed brick and Edison bulb lighting helps create an appealing "environment for a night out" ; "superb" staffers are a big plus, as is an ambitious sherry and global vino list.

Always stellar food and drink. Wonderful rustic tapas that comfort you and wines that fill you up with joy. Exceptional standards and standout new fare on the menu. Seasonal food of high quality ingredients; thoughtful and friendly service.

I'm a regular at Vera. One of my favorite restaurants in Chicago and definitely my favorite tapas restaurant. The place is a real gem that has never failed to deliver for me. Our food has always been prepared and served to perfection and I think in all the time I have been going there was only one dish I tried that I didn't find delicious. Add to that a very nice wine selection and extensive sherry list with knowledgeable staff to guide you through it if needed. The space is cozy and while not exactly romantic will certainly suffice for a romantic night out or just a fun night with friends and family. Also the only place in Chicago I know that does a proper paella (they get the all important crunchy rice crust...socarrat...right).

Always a great place for small plates and delicious beverage. I am sad there is no longer coffee during the day.
