Today as always this restaurant owned by Jose Garces never fails. Lunch and dinner are equally wonderful. It is located in the historic area of Philadelphia and eating outside is an option. It servers Spanish Tapas with many wonderful small plates. Great place to share....More

Chef Jose Garces has a great restaurant. Spanish style plates : roasted suckling pig, lamb meatballs, and vegetarian offerings. The Chef's tasting tapas options with wine pairings are wonderful. Always a fun evening of fine dining.

Visited after a long day of work with colleagues. Tapas was wonderful; perfectly cooked, beautiful flavour and just the right-sized portions. Service was a little slow and we were placed in a slightly dingy corner. Despite that would happily recommend.

Is this a kid-friendly restaurant and does it have a children's menu? We will be traveling with our four grandsons ranging in age from 9 to 15.
