About Amanda's Restaurant

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 ate there last week after reading the 4-5 star reviews and were shocked. The octopus appetizer was barely edible, it was like rubber and sparse in octopus. I had salmon that was over cooked and no different than a fast casual restaurant. My date had scallops that were extremely small (they weren’t bay), over cooked, salty and dry with inedible garnish greens. The beet salad was good and the restaurant has an excellent setting for hoboken, but we won’t be back or maybe it was a very bad night for the kitchen.

Our second visit since moving to Hoboken. Excellent service, great adult atmosphere. Perfect place for dinner with my wife. This will be our go to spot going forward.

We’ve always had wonderful evenings at Amanda’s on other occasions and this last dinner was such an evening as well. The service was unhurried to give us plenty of visiting time, the food was delicious, and the surroundings more like home dining than restaurant. Trip from NYC easy and direct.

My moms last night in town and wanted somewhere special. Amandas didn't disappoint as usual. Service was a little slow but that added to the slowed down ambience here. My mom is a little fussy when it comes to food but, and I quote "the best meal she has had in the USA". So there you go, all I need to say really!

I love this place. The food and atmosphere are both great. It's a restaurant in a cozy converted old house in the middle of Hoboken. It's perfect for a romantic evening or a group event. They have rooms downstairs for a private party, which is how I was first introduced to this place. I had to go back and take my husband. It's also very reasonable for being just outside of NYC. I will go back again. This place is not to be missed.

We love Amanda's to celebrate a special occasion. Or even just for dinner. The food is always delicious the service is outstanding and the atomosphere is elegant. We've been here 5 or 6 times and have never been disappointed. You're always greeted warmly when you walk in and feel welcome and attended to right away. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys a great meal in lovely surroundings.

Best brunch ever!!!!! Usually go to NYC for good brunch but not anymore! Must try the crispy eggs - they are to DIE for! Also must add polenta as a side (it was so good I counted it as my desert!) such a cozy little GEM - I promise you will enjoy!
