  • Good for a Date
  • Special Occasion
  • Neighborhood Gem
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.

We waited 15 minutes for the waiter to take our drink order even though he was walking by to help tables around us and he only stopped when we flagged him down. Did not check in on us during the course of the meal, and only came back to put the dessert menus in our laps without asking if we wanted to see them. Very odd, and not typical of our usual experience at Amanda’s. Food was delicious and drinks were well mixed, as always.

Great experience at Amanda’s for our anniversary, our seats were by the window of balcony and they decorated our table with anniversary special plates!
Food was awesome and they also decorated dessert plates with chocolate syrup written Happy Anniversary.
They really made our special day super special! Will definitely go back and maybe they will become our anniversary go-to place going forward.

Amanda's has been a fave for many years and when a former partner who no longer lives in the area was in town it was a natural fit as she and her husband used to live in Hoboken and they named their daughter (drum roll, please) Amanda! Yes, after Amanda's. We had a nice drink at the tiny bar and a great meal.

This review is just for brunch. The food overall was excellent, especially the starter (smoked salmon) and our two brunch-y mains (a perfect omelet with ricotta and a croissant French toast), though the dessert (a citrus-y crème brulee) was kind of a let down. The coffee was pretty bad. But the service was very warm and overall very good, if absent minded at times (there was a large event in the other room). But the best part was the bill - this was great value. We'd definitely come again.

As always, we had another wonderful experience at Amanda's. We had the 3 Course Fixed Price menu which has seating times of 5:00 and 5:30 pm, and for the price of $19.00, you get a lot of food. We all got the carrot ginger soup as our appetizer which was outstanding, followed by chicken pot pie for the entrée for my husband and I, with my daughter getting the sea bass, which she said was delicious. For dessert, we got the key lime pie and the chocolate panna cotta which were just divine! We also got a bottle of wine which can be purchased with the fixed price menu for an additional $24.00. The staff is always so friendly and welcoming here. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

My husband and I celebrated our 37th Wedding Anniversary here tonight. This is always our “special occasion “place. Everything was excellent. The service was First class. The food was delicious. I had the beet salad and short ribs served over gnocchi. My husband had the meatballs and the scallops. The ambiance is amazing. We will definitely be back! Highly recommend Amanda’s as we always do. Never a disappointment.

Amanda's never disappoints. It is by far my favorite restaurant in Hoboken. From the specialty cocktail list (fig infused booze is heavenly!), to the menu, to the ambiance and the charming mismatched china...everything is perfect!

Brunch was excellent, and the dining room was less cramped than most other Hoboken brunch spots. It's hard to walk in on a Sunday afternoon, but it was very convenient to make a reservation and avoid the rush!

This is a great restaurant for locals and visitors. The food was great, the ambiance was lovely, and service was friendly, and we had a lovely brunch. There was a misunderstanding with the check, but the owner was gracious in sorting it out to ensure that we had a great experience in the restaurant. He did go above and beyond in making our experience great. Thank you!

A all time neighborhood gem. Consistently excellent food and service. Their polenta appetizer is always a good way to start. Their duck and game entrees are excellent. Warm inviting atmosphere. Casual, but we have also celebrated special occasions here! They have separate rooms for small functions. We've been coming here for almost 20 years and we always know that we can count on Amanda's for a wonderful experience.

Wonderful romantic dinner with great service. This restaurant has 3 levels. Our dinner was downstairs in a quiet, cozy room. Dinner service was prompt, friendly and relaxed. We never felt rushed through the experience. This would definitely be a repeat stop, if we lived in the area.

As always the service and food is top of the list at Amanda's. You are made to feel welcome and are always served a 5 star meal. The polenta is always a favorite. My rack of lamb was cooked perfectly and was top quality. If you enjoy an old fashioned cocktail try one here. My future son in law highly recommends them

Always great at Amanda's. We usually come for special occasions,
this time we came with friends for restaurant week. It was a bargain!
The Pre-Fix menu had good choices and everyone's (four of us) food was great -
from the soup and salads to the main courses (lobster, pork chop) to extremely
tasty dessert6s. Waiters were very attentive as well.
I would recommend without hesitation.

I took my husband to Amanda's for a romantic birthday dinner. It did not disappoint! I didn't want big fan fare but I did want a candle in my husband's dessert. I requested this ahead of time as to not tip him off. The waiter did just that. The Matre d' or manager also gave us a glass of champagne to celebrate. Outstanding staff!!

This used to be my favorite restaurant in Hoboken but I was very disappointed today. The service was slow and erratic; the food came out incorrect; it was very noisy and we got sat right in the aisle by the hostess station otherwise we'd have to wait for a table despite our reservation. I kept having folks knock into me as they went in and out of the front door - not to mention the blast of cool air every time the outer door was opened since the inner door was propped open. I'm not sure I'll try them again after today's experience.

Went to Amandas for Sunday brunch for my daughters birthday, not our first time there for brunch. The food was delicious, their omelets are the best. Everyone loved their meal and the price is reasonable. Had my 88 year old mother with us and the manager could not have been nicer, kept checking up on her to make sure she was enjoying herself. I was a little disappointed that they didn't have their deep fried eggs on the menu anymore, but omelet made up for it.

Went here for Hudson restaurant week, but turned out the website dates were wrong. We were disappointed, but the manager at Amanda's was wonderful in righting this wrong. He came to our table with sincere apologies and made sure to comp our drinks and our parking. We were so blown away by the service. Highly recommend! The food and drinks were great too. Overall an amazing experience and we will be back.

My fiance and I decided to try Amanda's during Restaurant Week and benefit from their offer. Like 4 other couples seated next to us, we were led to believe that the Restaurant Week offer applied to Saturday evening, when it didn't. Since we were already seated and with drinks, it was hard to just leave the restaurant without dinner. The food we ordered was good, but did not justify the price. There was only one vegetarian option. The noise level was very unpleasant and did not compensate for the good service. We will not be returning or recommending the restaurant.
