    I went to Andanada for the first time and had a lovely experience. It was spacious and though it was crowded, it was not too loud. I The mussels called "tigres" was delicious, as well as the Pulpo a la Gallega. Plus the service was so nice. I'd go back here in a heartbeat. I loved the experience!!

    My friend and I enjoyed a fantastic meal at Andanada on a Wednesday night. We opted to choose several (5!) tapas to share between the two of us, and we were very satisfied with the quantity of food. We ate at a regular table indoors, but there was a lovely outdoor patio and a beautiful bar that would have been great settings also. Our waiter was well-informed and steered us in all the best directions - a great dinner overall!

    I discovered this restaurant via Living Social, & was so pleasantly surprised. It was truly wonderful. The Huevos Ibericos, or their brunch version of Eggs Benedict, was truly delicious. In place of Canadian bacon was Spanish chorizo. In place of the English muffin was soft brioche. The brunch sangrias were refreshing & not diluted. Service was attentive & friendly. It appeared that since it was the end of brunch period on a Saturday, the lone server was working assiduously to please & tend to each table. She did a great job. I was even surprised by the wonderful bread offered at seating to dip into olive oil. It was plentiful, fluffy, & sooooo good. My guest & I gobbled it up way before our food arrived. I will be back again. :)

    My husband and I went in hopes of an enjoyable 27 year anniversary dinner. We've visited Spain and was excited about Andanada, for their food and ambience. We were disappointed with the service and our entrees. The paella mariscos was bland and mushy. Paella is a signature meal known to Spain so we were quite surprised at how weak the flavor was. Also the service was lacking, was not even offered a dessert menu. Would not go back again. Also very overpriced but their wine was exceptional .. Very overpriced .....

    The restaurant had a great ambiance and Spanish cuisine. I went for brunch with my boyfriend for his birthday and they were more than happy to bring out his dessert with a candle to sing. There's a $20 all you can drink mimosas/sangrias, which was great. There was also a fantastic flamenco show with a dancer and guitarist. Will definitely go back!

    This is a fun, handsome restaurant with interesting Spanish food. I've previously come for tapas, but this time my friends and I had the 'restaurant week' dinner. For appetizers we had gazpacho and a cold monkfish dish -- both good. We all opted for seafood paella, which was enjoyable. The dessert failed (they embellished some lemon sorbet with fruit and a heavy pink foam; only the sorbet was edible). A bottle of white rioja was delicious, and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable.

    I've been wanting to try this restaurant for a long time. Finally got around to it with a friend who was in town for a visit. We both loved the ambiance & of course, the food! We sat outside in the atrium area where natural light set up a quaint atmosphere. The bread was delicious & the Spanish olive oil for dipping was flavorful. I had paella & it was definitely a meal that can be shared by two people. We had the restaurant week menu & they certainly did not cut corners despite the price discount. I also had the rice pudding which was so good! The ice cream on top was really flavorful!! It was definitely home made & not store bought! Alvaro Reinoso, the owner gave us some shark meat fritters which was really good as well. Thanks Alvaro!

  • Brunch at Andanada
    OpenTableDinerVIP
    Dined on 8/2/2014
    We went in Saturday afternoon for lunch. The menu was all brunch items, other than Paella that was for 2 or more. We ordered some cheese and Jamon Iberico to start and both were good. For the main course, we ordered the Paella and it was ok. Nothing special. It was our waitresses first day and it made for a fairly painful experience. I can't blame her for not being around when we needed her or not knowing the limited menu but I can blame the management. No one was around to help her. I felt bad for her but mostly felt bad that I chose Andanada during brunch. I have enjoyed dinner here multiple times, as it is just a few blocks from my apartment but I won't return during the day for sure.

    We chose the fixed menu thinking it was going to be specially good since it was the NY restaurant week. The gazpacho was bland, no flavor. The paella was so overcooked it was crispy! What is a Spanish restaurant without a good paella? I read a review critizising the paella. It was correct. I should not had made this reservation.

    Oddly, I ordered the pork and they brought me the steak. It had taken 20 or 30 minutes to get the food, and I wasn't about to wait another 20 or 30 minutes for the pork, so I ate the steak. Indeed, I had considered ordering it. It was decent. Good and flavorful at first, as time went on I was overwhelmed by the salt. The veggies were good. My wife enjoyed her salad and scallops. The host gave us a $20 discount for the mistake in the order, which I appreciated.

    This restaurant had a wonderful Rioja that a young owner introduced us to. He said it was from his family's vineyard. His Enthusiasm was much better that the Morale and mood of the wait staff. The menu and food are promising and interesting, quite good. I need more visits to know about consistencies and quality of ingredients. The recipes are truly fine, both modern and classic and Truly from Spain.

    We went for dinner and we were told that paella orders take 25 minutes to prepare. This was by far the worst paella my husband and I have ever tried. It was mushy and tasteless and looked like Rice-a-Roni. Appetizers were also tasteless and bland. Bread and homemade potato chips were very stale and old. Restaurant was clean and modern but would never go back.

    We've booked for late dinner. Our plans have changed, and the restaurant accomodated us earlier and for 4 (as opposed to 2 we reserved). That pretty much was the only positive. The drinks: Martini's were OK, but the Sangria seemed very odd: we ordered a pitcher, almost all of it was pure ice, the second glass was already a tiny shade of pink, not even getting to the rest of it. NYC Restaurant Week menu was not very alluring, so we ordered tapas. It turned out to be a feast of bread - all of the dishes we ordered were either made entirely of bread, or had disproportionate amounts of it (case in point: fried calamari dish). We also ordered "Lobster with almond soup and fresh herbs" - very pretentious and very little substance. Steak was good.
