    This is by far one of the BEST restaurants I have ever been to. The service was outstanding, the ambience was beautiful and the food was SO delicious. My mother, who is a vegetarin and extremely picky, loved this restaurant. There is something for everyone, and although the menu seems odd, it is excellent!! Would definitely reccomend this to everyone!! By far the best restaurant in AC!

    Best resturant and hotel ever ! Best waiter ever is Alberto or Antonio is his name I believe he has a pony tail. Made my experience that much more pleasant. I don't want to be served by anyone other. So knowledgable and so pleasurable. Every resturant should have one of him!!! The food was Unbelievable!!! Creative and delicious. Never have my taste buds enjoyed such a meal!

    Dined on 7/6/2014
    Dined here on July 6th but the fireworks were delayed due to weather. Had a window table , so front row for the fireworks. Restaurant was very busy. However, the service was very good. The food was excellent. Pork flank steak was exceptional. Had the cheese plate, chorizo & lamb meatballs. All were excellent. This is a great location, as the restaurant is right above the beach the view is like being at sea. Hope someone saves the Revel as this was the best food I've ever had in AC.

    This is a party for your palate. We went for a wedding anniversary for the great reviews and scenic view. We were pleasantly surprised that we didn't leave hungry, it was some of the most amazing flavors imaginable, the desserts were equally divine and the service and management were awesome.

    Amada continues to sell out and it is easy to see why. The room is magnificent, every server treats you as if you were a regular, and the food is nothing short of magnificent. This is fine dining at its best, with surprisingly reasonable prices. The place is managed so well, you shall marvel at the experience. We are fortunate to dine here frequently and we have never been disappointed. On this occasion, the fabulous gazpacho, succulent pork, lamb chops from Heaven and the new mussel dish . Each was superb, the quality of presentation, the taste, everything was prepared with great care and was perfect. Top it off with their fabulous cocktails, a glass of fine wine and an incredible and you have fine dining at its best.

    We enjoyed all the food that we had, the view is outstanding and we appreciated one of the managers coming over to check on us. Really a fantastic dinner, although we felt that the waitress could have given us better guidance on what we ordered, because we ordered way too much food for the 2 of us and 2 of the dishes were very similar. If you're in AC, go.

    With 4th of July fireworks postponed our early dinner post rainstorm was interesting at Amada, with a great view of the surf and surfers in front of us and world cup soccer playing out behind us. Having been to the sister restaurant in Phillie, we found this different, due to the view, timing and our tapas choices... Highlights were gambas (2 ways, sizes) short rib flatbread, jamon wrapped salad and a halibut special. The only minor miss was a too salty arroz (served with halibut); except for this the entire meal was excellent. The service was accomodating yet unobtrusive; the decor and ambience upscale, modern yet comfortable. Overall our dining experience at Amada is one that will be remembered and recommended to Atlantic City visitors...

    I've been to Amada three times but this time I brought three others. We all ordered the $75 Chef's tasting menu. The food was uniformly outstanding and plentiful. You won't find such unique dishes anywhere else in South Jersey. Our waiter was informed and personable and the overall service was extremely efficient. My guests agreed that this was an exceptional dining experience.

    It was our first experience with Tapas(small plates) and we were not big fans. The food was flavorful, I think it is better as a late night snack instead of dinner. We were not sure of what we were ordering, the garlic shrimp was tasty but over cooked as well as the diver scallops. Everything we ordered seemed to be swimming in oil and their recommended dessert was olive oil cake! We said "enough" at that point and left. The bench seat was too long and uncomfortable to sit on. I don't think we will be back. The service however was very good.

    The food and service were great. Beautiful view of the ocean. White sangria was really good. My only complaint was it was a bit on the louder side but it was still a great time. We had the meat mixto, the cheese mixto, the lamb meatballs, the pulpo, the shortrib flatbread and the pimientos. Everything was delicious, I couldn't finish it though.

    Amada moves on in grand fashion, despite the uncertainty involving Revel. This spectacular restaurant consistently sells out, its reputation for fine dining, great service, and a spectacular environment having become famous throughout the region. This is Fine Dining at its very best in Atlantic City. There's a sense of excitement every evening in this, our favorite restaurant. Chef Garces is noted for his incredibly creative cuisine, using only the finest products from local provenders. The menu constantly evolves, particularly with the change of season. Amada regulars can now look forward to the chilled summer soup for the summer, along with delicious new fish specialties. We tried the trout and mussels, and, they were delicious.

    I easily can recommend Amada as a fun place for tapas. We dined at the bar and the bartender was charming and attentive. Looming over the entire experience was the thought that the place was becoming the hotel in "The Shining" with the bankruptcy looming. That said, if it stays past the reorganization, Amada is worth the trip.
