    Start with the sherry. It’s all over the cooking here (amontillado on foie and mushrooms, manzanilla in the clam and chorizo fideos), but by the glass, the variety is tremendous. Read more

    The papa frita was great. Avoid the octopus. It was a big letdown.

    Don’t miss the Butternut Squash Croquetas & the Albondigas (Manchego Stuffed Meatballs). We suggest you check it out on a Sunday and get the Tapas Tasting Menu offered at $40 per person.

    We love Chef/Owner Marcie Turney's take on Spanish Tapas, as well as the extensive beverage menu featuring great cocktails, many wines by the glass and an excellent selection of sherrys.

    Disgusting dinner! I order octopus and it was burned! It Tasted like coal! The papas (if they knew anything about Spain they would know we call them patatas bravas) were disgusting. Paella overpriced!

    Go on a Sunday evening for their 10 course Tasting Menu for $40. Fantastic food, great service and value. Highly recommend!
  • Narma L.
    Frankly not a fan! I usually enjoy tapas venues, Jamonera however disappoints. Limited space within the restaurant, poor lighting/ambiance, and over-priced mediocre tasting tapas. Try Tinto instead.

    Pitcher of sangria and some small plates.

    Try the duck sausage with quail egg toast, dubbed "Spanish Breakfast." It won't disappoint.

    Get a window seat, be prepared for at least 5 tapas plates, and for God's sake - do yourself a favor and order a traditional Peruvian Pisco Sour. Amazing!

    Grouchy, slow service. Better tapas at tinto or amada without the annoying nntz nntz background music. Better for drinks- great cocktails.

    Terrible service. They seated us outside in the rain, were visibly (OBVIOUSLY) gossiping about us after we came inside from the torrential downpour, and then proceeded to glare. Decent food, though!

    The servers are shockingly well versed on the extensive sherry list and can help you choose the glass that best suits your order.

    Octopus, garlic shrimp, papa frita... Everything we had was delish. Pair with a glass of Tempranillo & enjoy.
