The food is absolutely delicious, portion size is decent but it is a little bit pricy. However, over all the value for the quality of food you get is good and well worth it for a unique experience.

My friend and I had a fantastic meal there! I was nervous about bringing a veggie friend to a restaurant that appears to have "Ham" in Spanish in its name, but their vegetarian options were incredible! We had eggplant fries, fried goat cheese with mixed veggies, and papas fritas. Basically fried things, but it was all delicious!

Our party of five arrived late, and it took an extra half hour for everyone to arrive. Yet our server showed zero signs of impatience on a busy Saturday night. We started with oxtail croquettas ( very crunchy) and eggplant fries, tasty and crispy on the outside with an excellent sauce, which came quickly out of the kitchen while the last of our party arrived. The drinks were excellent, the Viejo and the Levantine. I also had wine that I asked my server to choose with the instructions of bold and full bodied, the Garnaxta -Cabernet blend. It was excellent. We then had a special of avocado toast with cod I liked it very much, the Spanish Breakfast Bite, moderately spicy sausage with a perfect egg -my favorite, the Vegetable Tapas board-everyone loved the squash on it, a toast with pears and cheese -also good, the Gambas with a potato apple cake that was very good, the vegetable paella-pretty good, Brussel sprouts without bacon-excellent, charred and savory even without the pork. I ordered the Lamb chops with pumpkin bread. They came with pink meat and a fantastic char, that made the fat and the bones delicious as well. The pumpkin bread went surprisingly well with the spice on the meat. We finished with the churros, light and crisp with a sugar and spice coating and a salty caramel sauce that was a bit much for the pastry, but awesome on its own. All the food was great! The service was excellent. The only negative comment was that most things seemed accompanied by bread. And that some of the flavors might be better set off by something else. Personally I love bed the bread.

Our waitress helped recommend the wines for the evening which paired beautifully with our delicious food. She even went above and beyond and brought out a dessert for the upcoming birthday she noticed on the driver’s license. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting great food, service, and hospitality!

Small intimate restaurant with an awesome copper clad bar! The scallops were amazing and perfectly prepared. The portions are not to small, but not too large, allowing you the ability to try a variety of plates that are best shared! The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgable about the menu and wines. Looking forward to visiting again!

Great tapas, with thoughtful and creative combinations but nothing overwhelmingly odd. The brussel sprouts dish is astonishing in its simplicity but kaleidoscope of flavors. The steak and short rib entrees were tender, flavorful, and well-portioned. We're coming back!

My best friend and I attended Jamonera for Restaurant Week. The portions were very small and the food was subpar at best. Presentation was lovely but overall I wasn’t impressed to go back. I had the skirt steak. Although it was flavorful, 70% of it was rare. My best friend had the shrimp and it taste great but it was definitely the size of an appetizer. We left the restaurant hungry and had to hit up Wendy’s Drive-thru 🤷🏾‍♂️

Went for Restaurant Week with 5:00 res on last Friday of 2nd week RW. First in Rest.
Chose from the RW menu of 4 courses. Food was Very Good. Wife is non-meat and there were enough choice to satisfy that. Sliced Strip Steak was tasty but a bit chewy and only warm at start so quite cool by end. Orange sorbet was good. Rice pudding dessert was ... better than flan. Offered a $25 Wine / Sherry special of 3 wines or 3 sherry. I was able to mix/match to get an Amontillado with first courses; a Syrah Red with the steak and an Olloroso Sherry with dessert.
This worked out well.
We will return, possibly to try Happy Hour

Both the bar and the kitchen produce exceptional dining experiences. I met a friend for drinks. He was planning to dine elsewhere later, so I only ordered enough food for me. However, when he saw how good it was we ended up sharing everything! Fortunately the food was both satisfying and filling. Jamonera never disappoints.

Lovely, cozy and intimate decor. Perfect for date night. Amazing kitchen.
I’m an extremely picky eater & a huge foodie. Rarely when I like everything that a place had to offer another discovered Jem just like Barbuzzo.

Highly recommend!!!

Dorade fish was great n so were the potatoes, avocado and beets salads. Very, nutritious and tasty fares.

I had not visited Jamonera since I retired from my my job in the city 3 years ago, and it is still a foodie's delight! The Restaurant Week menu was awesome - not only offering lots of delicious food, but the wide array of multiple flavors which so pleasantly assault the palette and seem to burst in one's mouth need to be experienced! And, the fact that it was indeed Restaurant Week made for incredible value! Our waitress was a joy - very attentive, full of lots of good advice, and got us out on time to walk to the Kimmel for our Philadelphia Orchestra concert. The only thing we thought might make it more perfect would have been perhaps a wee bit of flamenco, or other Spanish guitar music interspersed with the usual 21st century background music.

We celebrated my daughter’s 21st birthday with a delicious “Restaurant Week” menu. The wait staff was excellent, attentive but not intrusive. The tapas were exceptional. The attention to detail and beautiful presentation were remarkable. I tried the red sangria. Delicious! The others chose cocktails and were delighted with their choices. My only suggestion would be some Spanish music. The ambience is not particularly Spanish, but the food is fantastic!

seafood paella and vegetable tapas board with grilled mushroom are delicious, must try the
grilled mushroom on flat bread is a must try.
Our server really knows her menu well and gave us very good recommendation. I asked her whether grilled skirt steak or spare ribs which one is better, she told us grilled skirt steak. Too bad we didn't take her advice and ordered spare ribs, it is not bad but I find it a bit too sweet for me with sweet potato instead with cabbage slaw. The ambience is nice, will want to go back and try other dishes.

Everything was excellent aside from where we were seated. We were right next to the bathroom/ coat room. Other guests kept bumping into my date and a fowl smell lingered at our table during our dessert course. It was pretty awful and ruined the experience. Otherwise, food and service was on point.

This was a quiet post holiday dining experience. The service was spot on and the food was prepared impeccably.

We even ordered another octopus because it was so delicious.

We were dining with a friend who adheres to a vegetarian diet. They were able to adapt several dishes to suit their needs.

We enjoyed the ambiance and the staff and their signature red lighting.

The service was good if a bit slow. The dining area is very small but the bar probably has about 15 seats and was full during majority of the time we were there (from 5:45 PM to about 7 PM). We made reservations for four (three adults and one child) and we were seated quickly at a table by the window--definitely the best table in the house, so we were lucky. The rest of the dining area is very packed. The menu is fairly small but the food was very good and fairly creative. The highlight for me was the sherry menu. Their cocktails all sounded very good and they had a small but good selection of beer. The price was about what was expected for the type of restaurant and quality of the food and service. Definitely a good place but not sure if it is worth an hour drive. Good local spot.
