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.

The menu has been updated and ever since the quality has dropped. Possibly new chef.

We brought our mother for brunch for her 86th birthday. They had nice music playing. Where we sat in the back was a little too dark but we needed to sit a bit away from the music so our mother could hear us speak (she is hard of hearing). Everyone was happy with their meals. The ambiance is really charming. What I was to make a special note about is that the staff is beyond exceptional. The wait staff was attentive. Our mother has great difficulty walking and can’t do steps very well and they offered up their employee bathroom so she did t have to do stairs. They were so warm and really assisted in making this a great experience for her! Thank you!!

Amanda’s Restaurant has such a warm environment. There was a live band playing music and taking recommendations, the food was absolutely delicious, and the staff was friendly. Would definitely come back here in a heartbeat!

Saturday breakfast. We arrived when the location opened and they went ready to service customers yet. Temperature was hot In the dining room, I think they waited to turn the air on until they arrived.

First time back at this restaurant since the Covid lockdown. Menu has changed a bit making it more interesting. Cost of parking garage helps with a reduced rate arrangement. We will return.

Really was not what we expected. Has a great name and reputation from way back but definitely doesn’t live up to its expectations anymore. The wait staff are dressed for a pub scene. The food is dripping in oil and the service…well cannot really comment because there was none. The ONLY positive thing I can say is that they had live music start around 5:30pm.

This was our first time eating at Amanda's. We went for Sunday brunch. The atmosphere is lovely. It's in a beautiful old brownstone. Parking was easy. There was live music (jazz) that was very enjoyable - not too loud. Our waitress was charming and sweet. I think her name was Maria Z. The food was good, but not any different or better than I would make at home. There was nothing special, nothing unexpected or delightful. I have no complaints, but also nothing to cheer about. The meal was perfectly nice.

The service was great. There is dining inside, and on and nearby the sidewalk, so you get the nice ambiance of Hoboken residents walking by. The street is fairly quiet, so noise level was great if you’re trying to hold a conversation. Nice waitresses and waiters. I plan to recommend this place to friends looking for a nice lunch or dinner in Hoboken. Delicious food with reasonable portions. The restaurant is 5/5 stars because of the kind, hospitable, and patient staff. They made the restaurant a good experience for me.

First visit and felt welcomed at entry. Servers were polite, food was good. Server did kind of get missing towards the end of our meal when i was looking for my check and to go box. But it didn’t hurt my experience. Will definitely return. I want to try dinner.

The short rib was very good, but the potato croquettes appetizer was cold in the middle. The warm parts were good, but it had a “not fully thawed” feel to it.

Service was very slow so if you need to be in and out, do not come here. Food wasn’t great especially the gnocchi which was just mush. Waiter didn’t ask how we wanted the pork chop cooked and it was over cooked and dry. Don’t think I’ll be back anytime soon.

Not sure what happened with our waiter. Asked for new silverware after we finished our appetizers.....after that he was not very friendly nor did he check on us after our meal was served. It was ashame because everything was great before that..... his attitude really put a damper on the evening.
