    This is one of my favorite restaurants in Philly! Try some of the cured meats, garlic shrimp, flatbreads, fideos made with calamari, and the lamb meatballs.... but, honestly, everything is great here.

    The food is great but the service is a bit slow!

    Nice ambience, delicious Spanish cheeses and meats (splurge for the jamón iberico), and it's worth trying as many different items as possible. The garnacha blend Prima is a winner from the wine list
  • Larisa G.
    Dinner is good, but make a reservation or be prepared to wait. Nice selection of Spanish wines for a drink at the bar too!

    The hanger steak bites and the cheese plate with apple slices and honey were both AMAZING.

    If you want to eat tapas you will be disappointed here. They are very different than what you find in Spain. Portions are really small for a tapa and over-expensive.

    Far away from spanish tapas... Very small portions for high price... Not worth it.

    The menu is varied, but the food itself is all equally dry and uninspired. Go elsewhere.

    One of the best restaurants in Philly. Some of my favorites are the crab stuffed peppers and the parmesan artichokes, but everything on the menu is delish!!!

    Best meal I had in Philly. All dishes were yummy. Didn't love the rose sangria - too sweet.

    Garces' flagship restaurant in Philly. The garlic shrimp tapa is insane. Try one of the flatbreads as well; the short rib one is a fave. Ham croquettas and potatas bravas are always amazing.

    Jose Garces presents stunning updates to classic Spanish flavors in an evocative, 135-seat space in Old City. The service is impressive and the menu well-tuned, but those small plates add up quickly. Read more

    Yummy! Great ambiance, service, and food. Loved the garlic shrimp, peppers, and the doughnuts for dessert! Flatbreads were overrated - I prefer the tapas!
