About the restaurant
13 Gypsies is a cozy, intimate Spanish tapas restaurant. You can also find the influence of other cuisines throughout the menu. Primarily utilizing Spanish techniques to prepare both creative and classic renditions of Spanish dishes, Chef Howard and Chef Kevan operate a true craft kitchen. The two of them prepare and cook most everything from scratch including breads, cured meats, cheeses, sausages, spice blends, pickled vegetables, and desserts. This practice of making nearly everything in house promotes waste-free cooking and higher quality food. Our wines are mainly from Spain, and our beer is Florida local. We are located in a two-story Spanish-style building built in 1923 by Henrietta Dozier, Jacksonville's only female architect in the early part of the 20th century. You will find eclectic, maximalist religious iconography adorning the walls and original floor tile. We have few tables, so reservations are highly recommended. Last seating is an hour and a half before closing time.

The food is delicious and very creative. Last night I had a pasta dish that was made completely in-house and it was fantastic. The pasta was unique and perfectly cooked and the ragu sauce was among the very best I have ever eaten. 13 Gypsies is a little gem and a culinary treasure in Jacksonville.

Outstanding food and extraordinarily attentive service. The price point is not necessarily low, but when you consider the quality of the food and the wonderful service it is an outstanding value.

 Overall it was a good experience. The food was really good. The service was good if you were a first time I guess and you’ve never been there before the server normally told you eggs questions if you need to or if you wanted to know what something was or if they had something. So it was a good experience.

This really is a gem of a restaurant hidden in the fringe of a strip shopping mall which regrettably is the norm in this part of the world. Overall experience is and generally has been good to very good in the past and most recently. The menu options are broad, deep and for the most part nicely done. My stir fry was served at a rather "tepid" temperature rather than fresh off the heat--not a huge deal. But...a notch down on the grade. The noise level was just above average; however, the booths are spacious and very comfortable too. It is still among our favorites for Asian influenced dining. Server was good. Tablet signature for billing was OK; however, no option to get receipt. Table-side charging should be easier.
