We hadn't dined here for a while and it was as good as we remembered. Attentive service, delicious and creative food. Loved the smokiness of the paella and the sauce that accompanied the dates. The asparagus was light and yummy. The only negative was the mussels - they were small and not all that good. Small but nice selection of Spanish wines. Worth the trip!

A favorite for theater nights. Our fourth visit and we’re always happy we decided on Jamonera We shared lamb kabobs, eggplant fries, dates and the tortilla. All were excellent but our favorite by far is the grilled bread. Simple but so delicious! A winner.

Our second time eating at Jamonera...both times a winner. Had a variety of tapas particularly enjoyed the mushroom croquettes and beet salad. Wine pour a bit a the small size for the price but nice selection of wines.

I have been to Jamonera many times since opening and was sorely disappointed on this occasion. The food was good but not great as in the past, the two white wine offerings tried thin and flabby and the service slow and indifferent. My husband and I will probably try Jamonera once again as we’ve had great experiences in the past. But if the performance of the other night is repeated we’ll sadly strike it off our list.

Tapas but portions quite small. Cocktails good. Tables are very small and close together. Service was good. Food was good. With traffic taking 30 minutes to travel 2 miles and difficulty parking probably wouldn't return.

I have consistently loved the food and portions for sharing. Don't miss the Toasts (your choice!) and Veggie Tapas Board. They change but never disappoint. Try the white sangria, too. Staff so very helpful.

The Iberian Punch and Pulpo were amazing! Being familiar with Tortilla España from time I spent in Spain, I was expecting the dish to be more similar but it's sliced potatoes with a thin layer of the filling.

Great place for a date night - it is pretty small, and has a cute bar in the middle which is wide enough to have food, not only drinks). Everything we ordered was delicious (seafood paella - to die for!), and service was quick and friendly. Putting on my to come back list!

Even though I didn't give a very good review, I still recommend Jamonera. The restaurant generally does a good job with authentic Spanish tapas and sherry. The mediocre review was for the mediocre "Paella Night" we came for. I was disappointed with the quality of the paella and other dishes that were presented family style, which in essence translated to just dropping off the platters on our table by servers without much thought or description of what we were being served. Would not go back for one of these "special" dinners.

This restaurant has spectacular food. The service was good. It is a small restaurant, but the ambiance is pleasant. I recommend the cheese/meat board, patatas bravas, stuffed dates, and huevos sucios. The albariño white wine was particularly good.
