A word from Amanda's Restaurant
Amanda's has been delighting customers for over 20 years. Guests enter our elegantly restored brownstones and are warmly welcomed by an accommodating staff. Although geographically close to Manhattan and certainly as culinary sophisticated, we're not slow to smile and truly aim to please each guest. Highly rated by the Zagat Guide for food, service and decor, we are proud to have been named on their short list of the state's Most Popular Restaurants. Our popularity stems from the talents of our CIA-trained chef, Rodney Petersen, our dedication to warm, gracious service and the comfortable elegance of our dining rooms. Amanda's is the natural choice for so many occasions: the romantic couple on a "date to impress," a family brunch on Sunday or the place to enjoy pre-theater Early Dinner at a price that is really too good to believe. Sophisticated wine lovers enjoy our monthly five-course wine dinners. Continued

  • "Great place for a saturday night dinner. Service is the best. Don't expect a quiet scene; very energetic. Tables are close. food is great. Parking garage is a bit of a walk, but OK in good weather. Take advantage of a walk on the Hudson."

  • "The food was delicious but our server or nonexistence of him was below standard. We came for Brunch and ordered the Fried egg as always and since I am vegetarian I asked for no meat and no mushrooms ( food allergy). I asked if I could get extra salad. When the food came in not only I did not get extra salad I got half of the amount of the salad that my girlfriends did. The waitress never came to ask us how the food was by the time we ate a male waiter comes in and gives us our check and we tell him we would like a dessert. When we wanted to pay he just took the money without a word. We were waiting for our change back and he never came.Idk if he thought it was his tip (over 50%?!) we had to ask someone else to give our change back"

  • "Service and atmosphere are incomparable. Each food course came close, but slightly imperfect. The muscle appetizer and brook trout entree get high marks, but the salad with goat cheese was gluey and unappetizing. The sea scallops could have been great if not for the sand."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We've been coming to Amanda's for the last few years, moreso since we moved around the corner. As usual the food was awesome. I had the mushroom pappardelle with squash and my fiance had the pork chop. Both were delish."

Our party tried the scallops, pork chops, trout and pappardelle and various salads and desserts. Everything was very good and nicely presented, just a little shy of outstanding. Solid wine list with reasonable prices."

  • "The food took a very long time to get served. We've been going to Amanda's since it first opened, it's our favorite NJ restaurant and this is the first time I'm writing a disappointing review. We were a party of 3, behind us there was a table for 2. From the time we sat down to the time we paid our bill and left 3 couples on that table for 2 came and went. Unfortunate, my brother and his wife were visiting from FLA and treated them for brunch, I was a bit embarrassed the service was so slow, as if we were being ignored. Nevertheless, we will return to Amanda's after many years of enjoying dining there, I like to think this disappointing experience was a fluke."

  • "very disappointed with the food at amanda's and the ambiance. I was part of a party of six and we were stuffed into the rear of the restaurant with a window air conditioner blowing over our table....seriously I would have been happier in a Panera....we were the first table seated for the day at eleven oclock in the morning....no one else in the place....choice of table for us was almost insulting. Food was nothing special, in fact not even good, and way over priced....would never go back. Didn't discuss with my fellow diners as I had chosen the place and was almost embarrassed to ask what everyone else thought about it."

  • "Travelled from Texas to get my daughter settled in the area as she'll be working in Manhattan for the summer. This place is a gem. My daughter loved her steak - very generous portion and cooked well, and my "fish soup" was very good. Will come back for sure."

  • "We had a family celebration for a new college graduate at Amanda's. What a treat it was! The restaurant is small and intimate, making reservations a necessity. We had a perfect crab cake appetizer, lobster bisque that was creamy and full of subtle lobster flavor, and amazing entrees. Softshell crabs, lamb chops, and steaks. All plates were clean when taken from the table. The service was friendly but efficient. We had a wonderful dinner and would recommend to anyone"

  • "I went here with my parents for my college graduation dinner. This place is classy, with nice decor, but the tables are somewhat cramped as far as legroom goes. Everyone in my pay got a didn't dish and everything was absolutely outstanding. We also had no difficulties making substitutions from the "default" sides that were listed with our meals. Our waiter was attentive, and for dessert there was even I congratulations spelled out on my plate in chocolate sauce! This place is rather pricy, but it's the best food and service I've ever had in Hoboken."

  • "Met two friends for a Saturday brunch. The place was very busy, but with our reservation we were seated immediately. The server was right there to take our drink order and was attentive (but not intrusive) throughout the meal. We each ordered something different -- the fritatta, an omelet and the 'crispy' eggs. The food was excellent; portions are just the right size for brunch. We also had desserts, which were very good. I had the berry crumble which was served warm with ice cream -- it's was yummy. Overall, a very nice experience. "

Whether it be a Restaurant Week excursion, or for a special occasion, Amanda's always serves a wonderful meal as well as providing impecable service. It is my favorite Hoboken restaurant and mind you, I travel 45 minutes to go there!"

  • "We picked Amanda's to celebrate our 30th anniversary. I made a note on my reservation that we were celebrating a special anniversary by returning to the town where we were newly weds. The host greeted me by name at the door and led us to a great table. I was very impressed with the food. My scallops were cooked to the perfect degree of medium well that I like - with very innovative sides and appetizers. My dessert was given a special Happy Anniversary plating without anything being said in advance. Our waiter was charming and efficient. And - biggest thank you because I realized 10 minutes before we arrived that I had made the reservation for the wrong night. I switched it using Open Table and they did all this on short notice."

Cool place, feels like you're in someone's home which makes is awesome for family affairs. Each part of the restaurant in separated into "rooms" so each group feels like they have some privacy. Great prices, food was very good. Everyone who came with me left full and happy!"
