    Although I was reluctant to order the pigs head the reality is it was delicious

    Very good food. Not crowded at all. Great atmosphere. Great individual waiter. Drinks a little pricey for the buffet. Dessert section not replenished.

    The food was very good, we tried the patatas bravas, the fried octopus, the croquetas de bacalao, the paella, and everything was excellent, the service as well was great and the waiter a very kind guy, he even offered us a cheesecake that we ordered to celebrate my sister in law’s birthday, and it was one of the best cheesecake I have ever had. I suggest you to make a reservation, since this place get full pretty quick. I would definitely go back again to try more dishes 😋

    I can’t say enough about this restaurant. We had wonderful dining, attention, and ambiance. My daughter spent time in Spain last year and the tapas were on point- if not better! Excellent drinks and friendly wait staff!!

    Food was good but we never had our water refilled or asked if we wanted another cocktail. Went somewhere else for my second drink!

    As always, Townsend Wentz totally delivers. The service was superb, each dish fabulous -I recommend all of them - and friends with us who were first timers swore they will now be regulars.

    Food was good, service good. Due to the restaurant being crowded, I say at the bar vs. chef table. Next time I'll take the chaos at the chefs table.

    Overpriced and overrated. It was my first time at Oloroso. I picked it up after reading rating and reviews. I love Spanish Tapas, but in a city like Philadelphia with such places as Amada and unfortunately now only history like Majorka every new restaurant must offer perfect food. Spanish restaurants also never so loud and noisy. You could say it's called bar, but then make it just a bar. Space is not suitable for a bar and a restaurant and a kitchen in two narrow rooms. People who work there are trying to do their best, but it seems like there only two of them. Of all dishes we tried only one was OK, all others looked and tasted like being prepared long ahead and reheated. Scallops(3 of them) been served on a bed of other seafood and potatoes(?!), dish was called scallops. And it was practically the same as paella with potatoes substituted for rice. Charcuterie plate for 25$ was miniscule and not very fresh. Chorizo advertised as homemade, but Wegman sells a better quality Chorizo for only 13$/lb. And it was a bad idea to put pomegranate juice into Sangria. Was it to kill a bad taste of cheap wine? Sherry and bread been very good, but I do not think it was enough to make up for overall bad experience. After visiting I am curious - how the good reviews are done? Or successful chefs stop caring about quality of their restaurants after achieving positive responses in the beginning.
