  • La Mesa de Jos is a dining surprise that lets the chef select his favorites for the table.
  • Go in and get a delicious cocktail! Check our our video feature on these guys - tap More Info!
  • While Garces isn't in the kitchen, much of the menu is still full of his spirit. Even though it opened in 2005, getting a reservation is still a challenge 7 years later. [Eater 38 Member]
  • The perfect spot is located at the end of the main dining room. The chef's counter, with six high chairs, gets you up-close to the action in the kitchen.
  • For authentic Spanish tapas with Mediterranean flavors.
  • A great Spanish red: Dec. de J. Palacios' '08 mencia. The Bierzo DO delivers the richest, fullest-bodied version of the mencia grape variety (similar to cab franc), and this is one premier producers.
  • Go to Amada and try any of the flat breads.
  • Best Tapas in Philadelphia
  • arces' granddaddy just overhauled its OMG-Everything's-Totally-Cheaper-Than-Normal! Hour with mid-week drink specials including $4 Estrellas & $8 custom cocktails like the Matador
  • I came here for drinks and was not dissappointed. Amazing sangria and will come again to try dinner. Only bad thing are the moron rich white people that think they know everything about wine. Shut up.
  • For special occasions the $75 lobster paella is a must.
  • Get sangria by the jug! The cinnamon stick they add really bring out the taste!
  • Kevin Sbraga loves this place! -Kevin Sbraga, Top Chef
  • Amada offers a Catalan Express lunch special year-round. Get a choice of soup and either an entree salad or sandwich for $14.50. Bonus: the lunch menu is offered Monday through Saturday.
  • Short rib flatbread. That's all you need.
  • Overall, fantastic. However some items undercooked, i.e. lobster and a rogue meatball.
  • Highly recommend Amada's when in Philly. Tapas are great. Staff very professional and a great environment.
  • Quite possibly best restaurant I've ever been to. Cheese w/ garlic dulce de leche made me melt. Literally EVERYTHING was amazing. Flatbread with chorizo and shrimp was to die to die for. GET DESSERT.
  • my favorite spot in Philly. white sangria, grilled octopus, grilled scallions, mushroom flatbread..nothing here is bad. its all good.
  • The Garroxta cheese with garlic de leche is pure brilliance. The crab stuffed peppers and spicy potatoes are also amazing.
