We had a great time but the bill for the bubble was 150% higher than we were led it would be via the website and original reservation. And this wasn't explained to us. Our original reservation was for 1 hour. We arrived and she said we had it for two hours, and there was food and champagne waiting for us (which I assumed came with the $100). When we asked to split the bill she said "it's easier if you venmo each other." We left feeling a bit taken advantage of/lied to, which is unfortunate since this experience had all the potential to be magical (and aesthetically, it was). Just wish Rioja Bar was more up front and honest about pricing/packages.

It was a nice space but a bit pricey for the bubble.

The igloos are a fantastic and very unique idea especially during the cold weather month. We experienced a very warm March day so it was warm inside but no fault of the restaurant. I would do it again for sure and my date loved it!

This was an amazing experience. We reserved the individual seating in the bubble. It sit six adults very comfortably, and the setup was awesome. We had the ability to call our server over at any point, thanks to the lighting system in it, which made things incredibly easy. We were given some foods to snack on and a large bottle of champagne. It was an amazing evening. This is definitely worth it for those looking for something fun and different to do with family or friends.

Staff was very friendly. But they had to be reminded to bring an iced tea. Food was yummy. Overall it seemed a bit over priced, but it was very nice

Lonnie was a great server, she really made us feel at ease. Not many food options, but we didn't go for the food.

Bubbles in a bubble is a lot of fun once. The food is good but the portion size of certain items needs to improve. If you have 6 guests in the bubble how do you split 1/4 of an artichoke heart? I think there were also only 3 mushrooms. In addition we purchased two additional charcuterie boards because we were still hungry. We also purchased 2 additional bottles of wine and drink orders. They are trying to keep with a Spanish theme but I think they would be more successful if they alternated themes to keep people coming back. A group of 6 spent $450 for a 2 hour stay in the bubble. If I did this again I would have dinner ahead of time and book the later time slot.

I went to enjoy the igloo HH from 5-6p-w friends- $100 btw :) service was good, but know that they WILL be on you about timing! An hr is def not enough- you need at least 1.5 hrs. So, if you rent the igloos for 2hrs, they will be sticklers 5min before your rezzy expires. There’s enough space in the igloo to be socially distanced, temp controlled and choose lighting based on preference and to request service. Great vibes at sunset!

Lonnie was our waitress and she was absolutely great. She was very prompt. Our red light did not last long before she was at our service. The atmosphere was great. The whole idea of the bubble was a fantastic idea given the situation that's going on in the world. I really enjoyed it and my spouse and I are planning to return.

The experience was very fun and different. But the value was not there. It was supposed to be a “huge” lazy Susan charcuterie board. It was disappointing and I had to order more food to offset. Our waitress was great and tried her hardest but because of location it took her a while to deliver food and drinks. I feel these issues can be resolved and am giving grace because this is a new experience being offered. I will definitely do again next year but over happy hour not dinner hour.

We had such an amazing date night. We have not been out since covid hit last year and the bubble made us feel safe. The ambience was amazing. The pictures made it no justice and food and drinks were amazing. You could control the lights and if you chose red it meant you need the waiter. It was truly an amazing experience.

Great spot for quick bite/chill. We were in the pods for an hour or so before sneaking over to Perry’s for a steak. Excellent atmosphere!
