Great menu with many great small plates (tapas). Shared grilled octopus, scallops and sausage combo - interesting pairing that really worked. The pace of the various plates was perfect with space to savor each item. Would highly recommend.

The best Spanish food in the city--and so much for so little. The place is a 6 star find.

Absolutely perfect night at Jamonera once again. This is becoming our valentine's day tradition and what I wrote in the notes did not go unnoticed by the manager and the wait staff, it really made for a great touch on our date night. Of all of the restaurants I've visited in Philly, Jamonera is hands down my favorite and the only one I know I'll keep going back to year after year. The food was phenomenal; bacon wrapped dates are to die for and now we've added the eggplant fries to our 'order everytime' list. The kobe beef special was phenomenally cooked and the sangria, as always, was the perfect touch. Thank you again for a wonderful night, we'll see you next year if not sooner!

We found our new favorite restaurant! Absolutely everything was perfect & enjoyable. We went in the messy snow & was not disappointed in any way. We will be back very soon to bring the rest of our family & friends!!!

Jamonera’s tapas were disappointing. We ordered four items from the menu. The only dish that tasted good was the cheese board. The other tapas were either over salted or over spiced. The service however was impeccable. Both our server and the bartender were attentive and knowledgeable. For the price and quality of the food, I would try another establishment.

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!

The food was absolutely delicious and came out quickly. Unfortunately, our experience was diminished by a waitress who kept making rude and sarcastic comments to my family members.

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.

Food and service was very good. However, I am disappointed in being asked to leave for another reservation to be seated.
This was less than two hours for a group of six.

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!

Delicious! We also had many moments of OMG, this is so delicious, specifically the vegetable plate, and the shrimp dish. It is one of our favorites.
