Jamon Iberico Pata Negra Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Owner and Chef Felipe and team go out of their way to make every visit as memorable and more special than ever before. No matter the occasion, the staff greets with a warm welcome and ensures your comfort from the very start. Our favorite is to begin with a combination platter, Jamon Iberico ham 5J with manchego cheese, along with octupus and calamari. Their table bread is delicious and perfect with the ham, cheese, and sauces coming with octopus. Go ahead and put in that order for one of the paella dishes. We go crazy for the squid ink "black" paella. Then, order as much seafood and lamb chops as needed. Keep the Crianza flowing! Finally, relax and enjoy sweets and happiness shared by all those in Felipe's wonderful world.
We ordered the "Arroz con Mariscos" (sea food Paella) & my step mother who has visited Spain several times to see relatives & my father who loves food from Spain & both love Paella said was not worth the money & did not have much of the sea food in it nor did it have any Lobster in it at all (that we could see, taste or bite into it. They told us. Not to order 3 Paellas because 1 would feed 2 people so we ordered 2 but got what looked like only 1 & I left hungry because I wanted them to have enough to eat which looks like my father did the same gesture. They were very disappointed & made what was supposed to be a special occasion dinner memorable in not a pleasant way. They did bring him a dessert with a candle & that was nice but did not make up for the meal.
Authentic tastes of Spain
The four of us had been in Barcelona a couple of months before and were looking to find some of the same flavors we had enjoyed there, particularly the razor clams. Jamon Iberico Pata Negra delivered.
In addition to the clams, which were outstanding, we enjoyed cuttlefish, octopus, patates bravas and the jamon iberico. All of the tapas plates were very well prepared and generous in size compared to what one typically gets at tapas restaurants, so that we were basically full when the egg-crusted rice with shrimps and scallops arrived. Maybe that is why we found it to be the least interesting dish that night. As with most paellas the shellfish were overcooked, although the eggy crust was delicious. The 5J ham, while delicious, is a very pricey appetizer.
The wine list has a lot of good Spanish options and a wide range of prices. We drank a verdejo that accompanied the food well.
Our recommendation would be to stick to the tapas menu, splurge on the ham only if you have never had iberico before, and share a rice dish only if you are still hungry - which you will not be if you sample the superb tapas.
Also the service was very friendly and professional, and the chef may come out to greet you if not too busy. Enjoy!
As always, Pata Negra came thru with flying colors. We ordered the amazing pimientos del piquillo filled with cod which have a sauce that nursts with flavor. "Broken eggs" with serrano ham - just like Abuela makes it. Then we ordered roast suckling pig which was moist on the inside and crunchy on the outside, and the large chuleton for two.
We had delicious Rinera del Duero red wine to accompany the meal.
Chef /owner Felipe always stops by to ask how things taste - a great personal touch!
We are in love with this place!
We had several tapas, paella and crema catalan. The food was delicious like always and one cannot complain about the price. It is different from the usual Miami fare and definitely worth the drive. The service was outstanding and our server recommended a great bottle of wine. Everything felt authentic and we had a wonderful evening. They did not play music like all the restaurants do to the point that any conversation is just drowned out by the noise. Nobody in the restaurant cared about that, which shows that you don't need techno beats to be hip. All the patrons had a good time and were (gasp) talking to each other, having fun, while enjoying delicious food. What a wonderful experience. I can only recommend this restaurant and will definitely be back.
