Yes, Amada gives Bar Ferdinand a run for its money. But the more authentic vibe and dining options here blow it out of the water. Friends, family, and my significant other all beg to go here. Once you've dined here, you will dine no where else. Funny side note: my husband and I moved to the Piazza because we kept... More

This place is really nice. Love the lighting, decor, and the food is awesome. I have been there twice and have tried lots of their food. The paella is amazing.

Love the food, love the environment. We had an amazing time! The sangrias are delicious! Service was a little slow but they were pretty busy, so it is understandable. Really want to go back and try the entire menu.

Great place to stop for a drink with a friend or even go out to eat with your significant other. Parking can be found easily and be sure to enjoy the neighborhood by walking around and visiting the little shops.

I went 3 times to this restaurant. It's really a nice place to meet with friends or co-workers. The interior is beautiful and the environment is very quite. The service is great. You have the choice from a large selection of a variety of tapas. I will defiantly go back!

We had a FABULOUS time celebrating my son's graduation! Great tapas, especially the Chickpea Frites, and our main course of PAELLA DEL DÍA was fantastic! We topped it off with bottles of champagne! Service was top notch and everything far exceeded our expectations. The manager even came to talk to us and wanted to make sure everything was good!

My husband and I were visiting our son in Philadelphia. He keeps strange hours so we went to Bar Ferdinand in the late afternoon for a snack. But we ended up making it dinner and eating our way through the menu! Our server was Lindsay and she was great. We kept adding things and she kept bringing them! We tried... More

Wow, what a great place! I came here last week for a birthday dinner and everyone had a wonderful time. The service was very, very attentive and all the staff were quite friendly. The drinks were great and copious and our five-course meal was out of this world. Everything was delicious, from the pork empanada and baked goat cheese to... More

My friend is getting married and we decided to have a bridal lunch before her big day. Their food is phenomenal and the service was great. We had lots of fun. It's a decent size bar and some areas can make you feel secluded. I didn't like how I had to go downstairs for the restroom. Overall, it is a... More

A pleasant surprise in Northern Liberties. The paella is well-made and nicely presented. The restaurant is welcoming, and the service is excellent.
