Contemporary American
For the past 28 years, Amanda's mission has always been about replenishing the soul through delicious contemporary cuisine and providing excellent service - all at a reasonable price. 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. Our popularity stems from the talents of our chef, 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.

    What a disappointment!! It has definitely changed from the Amanda's we knew & loved. A whole new menu and none of the favorite staples of Amanda's of long ago. We were seated in the main dining room near the front window, which was nice. Then a group of 15-18 were seated near us and we couldn't even have a conversation because they were so loud. To add to it-the AC was so minimal in that room that we had to tie our hair up because it was so warm. Service was mediocre and at times we thought we were forgotten.

    Celebrated our anniversary in Amanda’s very romantic blue room. We arrived 15 minutes late for our reservation due to traffic and the staff couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating. Great cocktails — I loved the pomegranate cosmopolitan — and the appetizers of PEI mussels in white wine garlic sauce and beef empanadas were amazing. The service was excellent and we had a lovely conversation with the owner after our meal. Felt like we were among family!

    I always see this place when I am walking up and down Washington and I think it would be a cute for a date night. And it sure was! My boyfriend and I decided to go out for a last minute Thursday date night and this was the first place that came to mind. The atmosphere was super cute and I loooved that they had live piano playing in the background. The place is straight out of your aunts living room, super cute vibes! I got the chicken napolitana and my boyfriend got the beef short rib. His, was absolutely amazing - mine was pretty okay, nothing out of the ordinary. I had a glass of wine, and we got desert - the coconut flan was great and rich :) and our total came out to just about $120 w/ tip. We ate pretty good, the atmosphere was nice and it did the job. It’s not the place I would go back to for a special occasion but I would probably do another random date night and try something else on the menu!

    Varied menu and for the items selected, all were satisfying. (Odd, no anchovies in the Caesar but still satisfying.) I'd say "professional" aptly defines. All aspects of the experience were done professionally. Quibble could be the lack of formal dress - casual dress - of the servers; especially when having a decor/ambiance of upper-scale dining. And asking for a change of seating required me chasing down the hostess. I like the idea of music but always I find it a challenge to speak over the volume. The food itself is solid. Is it Daniel? no, but each dish prepared expertly. So, I say the overall experience is a 4; the food is a 4 and I'd say no more than 4.

    We have, for many years, considered Amanda's our go-to place in the area for very special occasions, and the level of service and atmosphere and food have all been superior in the past. Alas, I'm not sure if there has been a change in ownership/management, but our recent visit (May 2022) revealed a good restaurant...that's all, just a good restaurant. Service, which had been doting and impeccable and professional, was enacted by a young woman who spoke so reticently and softly that nobody at our table could even hear her, and actually had to ask her to repeat herself several times. She almost certainly seemed like a part-timer rather than someone taking her craft seriously. She also did not highlight the dishes as previous waitstaff would have--exciting the diner about what was to come. Appetizers at our table were up to previous standards. Main courses, on the other hand, revealed a remarkable lack of nuance and craftsmanship: the two separate homemade pastas were overcooked, the bolognese sauce tasted like a fresh marinara rather than a long-simmered meat-sauce. It was also spread sparingly on the pasta. While the salmon was nicely done, there are many places one can get a nicely done salmon. Our other main course, pork chops, were a tad overcooked. Flavor was good, but a superior pork chop will also be tender, which this was not. Desserts (flan was exceptional; the flourless chocolate cake was very good; the dulce du leche pie was rich but not cloying) were a highlight. In all, this was a good dinner, but the decor and location and reputation as one of NJ's top 10 restaurants for decades, could not carry the otherwise decent experience. Amanda's is not a place one is used to visiting for just a decent experience. One used to be pampered by the staff and the flavors, but alas, not anymore.

    Our waiter was awesome, staff was wonderful, restaurant has live music & VERY cleanly. We ordered Caesar salad that tasted bland & empanadas that came out cold. Seafood pasta was delicious & steak was so so. We most likely will not be back for the food, but it was an okay experience.
