Spanish
13 Gypsies is a cozy, intimate Spanish tapas restaurant. You can also find the influence of other cuisines throughout the menu. Primarily utilizing Spanish techniques to prepare both creative and classic renditions of Spanish dishes, Chef Howard and Chef Kevan operate a true craft kitchen. The two of them prepare and cook most everything from scratch including breads, cured meats, cheeses, sausages, spice blends, pickled vegetables, and desserts. This practice of making nearly everything in house promotes waste-free cooking and higher quality food. Our wines are mainly from Spain, and our beer is Florida local. We are located in a two-story Spanish-style building built in 1923 by Henrietta Dozier, Jacksonville's only female architect in the early part of the 20th century. You will find eclectic, maximalist religious iconography adorning the walls and original floor tile. We have few tables, so reservations are highly recommended. Last seating is an hour and a half before closing time.

    10 of 10 for what it is. This is a small place, serves small plates for tastings. It is not a “go to dinner place” it is a tapas joint that knocks your socks right off. I prefer to view negative reviews before I go to a place, and all the negative reviews had a recurring theme, they expected a meal to be served to everyone at a particular time. This is not the place for that, this place is for enjoying wine, eclectic food & conversation ast they bring the goods. We had a party of 3, with drinks and it was $135. I was impressed by each dish served, it was a small quiet place serving specialty items. Worth the money and vibe. Everyone who rates this place low did not understand where they were going. With that they shouldn’t degrade the experience. 10, take two hours, order anything and it will be awesome. We will return.

    Listen, if you live and breathe and consider yourself to be one that enjoys loveliness and scrumptiousness, just go and bask in the wonders of this small, yet delightful place. Trust this ‘somewhat dramatic’ and flamboyant reviewer: 13 Gypsies is yet another fabulous dinner decision you’ll make in JAX and you won’t regret it - Toodles!

    Jacksonville restaurants can get repetitive and basic. 13 gypsies bucks the trend. Unique space, exclusive (make a resy-max 4 ppl), and everything feels like it was cooked just for you. The menu ranges through a wide variety of cuisines and it's prepared perfectly. Great for date night. We always bring visitors here and everyone has loved it.

    This place is a true gem. We’re from out of town and found it in OT. The tapas were innovative and delicious. The atmosphere is quaint and friendly. Be sure to make a reservation. The restaurant has only a few tables and I suspect fills up fast. So happy we discovered it.

    Service was great! Small restaurant that serves small plates/tapas. Food was displayed attractively. Take your time to dine (order tapas no more than two at a time), the flavors are good. Little bits of good food spread out over time give time for good conversation in a European Old World atmosphere with a decent bottle of wine.

    The food combinations and flavor profiles were unexpectedly exciting and well executed. The ambience was funky in a good way. The hard surfaces made the music sound level too high for normal conversation until it was turned down. Our server was very attentive and offered excellent suggestions. Overall, our meal was in the top two restaurant experiences that I've had in Jax over the last seven years.

    For my 50th birthday dinner, we decided to make reservations for 11/21, a Tuesday night. I read the reviews and went in open-minded and excited to try a few of the dishes that were raved about regularly. We were promptly greeted by Andrew, who was the host, the server, the bartender, the busser, and the gatekeeper for the unknowing few who walked in thinking a table might be available. (There are only 18 chairs in the restaurant so you MUST have a reservation but, in our opinion, it is well worth it!) The sangria was delicious. We LOVED the tomato/cucumber salad. We ordered the Mongolian beef and the seared scallops, both so flavorful! (I joked that I was going to lick the plate as the corn puree with jalapeno under the scallops was spot on!) The chorizo was okay, but the dates and the pear on the plate were the true stars. The black olive risotto was to die for! Really enjoyed the cauliflower in the curry sauce. The peasant bread was yummy with the seasoned oil, and the Brussel sprouts were delicious, but I thought there should have been a bit more in the serving (and I KNOW we are talking about tapas). But the bread was two slices cut in half and there were only 6 Brussel sprouts on the plate. I only complain because they were so delicious! As for the service, Andrew was lovely, but I will say that I wished that he had a little backup as we waited far too long between our first round of drinks and our second, and finished eating before there could be a third. Do NOT let the weird negative reviews deter you! We COULD have sat there all night, sipping sangria and enjoying the ambiance of this adorable little restaurant. Overall, my husband and I both agreed we very much look forward to a second visit to 13 Gypsies. P.S. We had to take the Tres Leches to go as we were too full to have dessert there but it to was delicious according to my husband. :)

    We have been going to 13 gypsies for many years from when it first opened. We are so happy it survived Covid times! For this visit we were seated promptly at 6 pm at a table to our preference. Our server Drew was pleasant and upbeat. Noise was a bit high as larger tables got filled but settled as the other diners got settled. All tapas were tasty. If you order the cauliflower curry you should order a side of bread so you can sop up the sauce wonderfulness. We use this cozy restaurant for our little special occasions. It's nearby, not fussy, and the service is personable.

    Everything was absolutely amazing as always. I can honestly give this restaurant 5 stars each and every time. We had relatives who came down from New York several months ago, and they are still talking about 13 Gypsies non stop and can't wait to go back. They even tried to recreate some of the dishes they enjoyed so much with no luck. I just think they need to touch up their overhead banner outside. It's kinda dingy and doesn't represent wat you get inside very well but what the hell, they're not lacking on clientele and you better make reservations in advance if you want the experience.
