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 also host dinner parties for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and corporate dinners.

We are happy to accommodate special menu preferences.

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.

We love Amanda’s. It’s always my first choice when I have something to celebrate. The early dinner makes it very very affordable!

Underwhelming. Service was rushed as if they didn’t want us there. Food was ok but not as good as advertised.

This was a wonderful find!
The food was fresh, the ambiance lovely, and the decor impeccable.
For the price, this place was a hidden gem. I hope to be back.

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.
