“Perfect Service, Perfect Food, Perfect Night!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

This place is really amazing!! We loved our server, JESSICA, she was one of the best servers we ever had. The food was incredible, and with the service she provided us, it was an outstanding night. We can't wait to go back. Our night started out at the bar, we had an amazing cocktail, slow and steady,it was called. So delicious. The bartender was super friendly, the atmosphere is gorgeous! A little small, but we did not mind. When we sat down at the table, Jessica offered me a sample of two wines because I was undecided on what to order. How nice? She was so so sweet, and extremely attentive. Went to their sister restaurant Barbuzzo a few months ago, that was also great!! Can't wait to go back to Jamonera, and we will definitely request Jessica. Lg

“Something for everyone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This is a delicious little tapas and wine bar in the center of Philadelphia, which, despite the name of the restaurant, has many good vegetarian options. The cocktails are excellent, and the food was complex and sometimes surprising. The eggplant fries with truffle oil were a hit, as was the short ribs dish. We did feel a little rushed.

“Intimate Spot with Great Drinks & Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Stopped by for a cocktail & appetizer on Friday night and really loved this place. It's a small restaurant but we were pleasantly surprised to grab a seat at the bar easily. We had two amazing cocktails and enjoyed the charcuteria along with the bacon-wrapped dates. Can we have a moment to appreciate the bacon-wrapped date......okay, one more.......

So amazingly good. I can't wait to come back to this spot and sample more of the menu. Marcie Turney & Valerie Safran continue their dominance of 13th St.

“Great experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Dinner last night at jamonera was outstanding. Short rib and Brussels sprouts specials were a highlight. Nice wine list, moderately priced. Excellent service. Great looking restaurant too. We had several orders of the bacon wrapped dates. Awesome eggplant fries. Alaskan halibut was my favorite...perfect.

We will be back. Spread the word...this place is great.

“restaurant review”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

ate here while staying in philly for a weekend conference. staff courteous and pleasant in demeanor. Was able to sit outside on the sidewalk on a beautiful evening and watch the denizens of philadelphia amble past. Wait staff knowledgeable about the menu and the wines. Food quite good but not cheap. Would be willing to eat here again, but with so many restaurants yet untried in philly not good enough to bring me back before trying the others on my bucket list.
