Fantastic food, great atmosphere and service. Braised short rib was out of this world. Tempranillo by the glass was a fantastic value for the quality of the wine. Space is dimly lit but very cozy. Highly recommended!

The food is perfectly seasoned. Try the lamb ribs and paella. All food ordered was very good and beautifully presented. Not your typical classic Spanish cuisine but a fantastic product.

Went here the other night with a few friends. The tapas were generally excellent! The place is very small and all of the tables were full, so we ate at the bar along with several other customers. The bartender took both our drink and dinner orders and couldn't have been friendlier. it turns out he did forget to order one... More

OK little restaurant that could be so much better. Better than OK! The service was friendly but disorganized. There appears to be an a absence of communication. For $50+ I ordered 3 small dishes and 2 beers. One of the dishes was half warm, half cold. Not at all hot. After I took a bite I realized the second dish... More

We walked in off the street and were very pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. The staff were attentive and explained the menu to us, indicating that we might like to share some of the larger dishes. We had a very tasty meal accompanied by some nice wines. Pleasant dining with good value for money.

Jamonera is an intimate space with a small dining room and small bar. As such, reservations are wise- there was a line out the door when we left. Service is friendly and knowledgable. The menu is primarily small plates meant for sharing. If you want a larger meal there are full servings of paella. We tried a couple of strange... More

A very small restaurant with a long and well stock wine bar. Find Spanish Tapas small plate selections to accompany your wine selection. If not at the bar go for a table facing the street and the large street front windows for people watching.

Sure, it's not the most inexpensive place in Philly. However, there are tapas you won't find at other tapas bars, even in Spain. The shishito peppers and the Brussels sprouts were fantastic, and I'm not a vegetarian!

Absolutely couldn't sing higher praises about this charming restaurant! We had about 5 shared tapas plates between two people and it was more than enough, and we loved every single bite! My guest and I spent a semester in Spain together while we were in college, and we absolutely felt like we were back in Spain. The food was authentic,... More
