The drinks were decent, and the food was going ok, but someone on the staff walked by, spilled water on my wife and our food. They comped the food which was nice, but the experience was ruined. It's a tight squeeze in there. Not a great experience.

Paella was not cooked the way Spanish does... disappointing.

Other dishes were good, especially roasted beet salad and meatball dish.

Interesting menu, I probably should have asked a few more questions regarding preparation but that was my fault not the restaurant's.

Good meal — mostly everything was good, with the mushroom croquettes and eggplant fries standing out among the small plates. The octopus and paella were very good. The charcuterie was rather sparse for the price. The drinks were creative and well-executed.

I thought overall ambience and food was good...except the lamb we had was very tough. I’ve never had lamb this tough... ever. I would have given 4 stars for this meal if lamb was better. Taste was very good.

Had a nice dinner at Jamonera. Food was delicious and the value was fair. Cocktails were great. We enjoyed the interesting menu with a wide variety of options. The one disappointment was our server, who kept pushing us to order more food and drinks, and/or kept trying to clear the table of dishes we were still eating. Meanwhile the restaurant was half empty. Don’t go if you want to enjoy a relaxed meal.

Nice little Spanish-food place near convention center. It was well visited.
Service at first was ok, but the poor server had way too many tables, so once it got busy he was pretty lost.
Food - tapas style sharing - quality ok (nothing wrong, but also nothing spectacular) , small portions being priced a little on the high side.
We did enjoy everything except the cold (a/c blowing - they fixed it for a while ...)

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!

Convenient location with a menu for foodies! Overall the food was fresh and tasty, but for some reason everything was dipped in salt. The tortilla espanola was good with the layers creating different texture and taste. The seafood paella was alright as the shrimp, squid, clams and mussels had a salt coating and was too much burnt rice. The lamb pintxos was cooked medium style allowing you to taste the natural meat flavor, but had a bit too much fat vs. meat accompanied by vegetables, couscous, pickled shallot and salsa giving you the salt, spice, sour mix to liven up your taste buds. The seating was somewhat cramped and were along the serving path. Service was okay, nothing amazing to comment.

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.

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.

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.
