$30 and under
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.

No descriptions on menu and brunch is not like it used to be. If you ask why... don't serve dark thigh meat with a Ceasar salad. Should have been an option. Confused also about having a muffin with no jelly/jam/extra...

Great experience! There was someone playing piano which was a nice touch. We had two different servers helping us- the one with glasses (sorry I don’t know their names) was so nice and friendly! When I asked him to take a picture of our group he ended up taking several photos with different angles which I appreciated. Food was delicious and restaurant wasn’t crowded/noisy.

Food was amazing! Short ribs, emapanadas and mussels were amazing!
Service was OK. honestly with the few tables that were taken while we were there and there should have no been no reason to have to flag down a waiter for water.
But this is really a minor point to an overall fantastic dinner!

It's a wonderful restaurant. I just wish, as a vegetarian, that they had more meatless options to choose from. Even the brunch only had one choice.

Good service, excellent ambience. A "credit card fee" added to bill without notification. First bill total did not have it, found second bill that came back with credit card was inexplicably higher, no notation there either, just higher. Waitress said credit card fee. Never experienced a credit card fee at a restaurant before. Asked who to ask about it, was directed to bartender by wait staff. Bartender angry and hostile, said he was just the bartender and I needed to speak to the owner. Don't think it was me, guess it could have
been. Think I just inquired reasonably. Entrees good, coffee lukewarm and stale.

Very nice ambiance snd location. I was there when they first opened about 30 years ago. The problem i see now is the quality of the food. If you move to a better menu, better quality, even if at higher cost, it would become a compelling return destination. As it is, the menu and qu as Lott are lacking.

Nice place, menu somewhat limited. Most meals served to our party were OK. My pork chop was really overcooked -- could hardly cut thru the chop. Probably will not return.

Delicious food. Staff was friendly, welcoming & knowledgeable. Shout out to our waiter, Drew, who made us feel so comfortable! I live on Long Island, & had friends from Chicago staying near the restaurant. I will have to find reasons to have more friends come meet me in Hoboken! Definitely worth a return trip!

My new go-to-dinner restaurant when really hungry and want great food! I was there for the first time, this past Sunday with my hubby for early dinner and what a pleasant surprise it was!
The place was packed however, it didn't feel packed. We just know because of the full parking. But the restaurant is divided into different rooms. The service was superb: efficient and on time! No wait at all for a restaurant of that capacity. The portions of the food are definitely to share-omg! And the food was delicious!
I give Fornos of Spain a five star overall-highly recommend this place!

The food, ambiance, service was pretty good but one thing I didn't like: when making reservations, they asked if the visit was for an occasion like birthday or anniversary. I told them that it was for my wife's birthday so I was expecting them to do something special for it. The didn't acknowledge it at all. Not the end of the world, but if they are going to ask, they should have done something. I would have mentioned it to our waiter but I thought they knew.

Wow! It was our first time in Hoboken and we were thrilled to eat at this quaint restaurant on the main drag. The food was incredible … empanadas, soup, just everything. Our waiter (Drew) was also amazing and knew that we had to pick my sister up at the airport and made sure all of our food came out on time and gave us our check early. Thanks so much for an amazing evening!!! Can’t wait to come back.

Had an overall lovely evening. The waiter and bus were great the food was nice. However, if you are having diners sit outside you need to do better. 4 heaters for 3 tables of about 20 people was not nearly enough.

Amanda’s is my favorite restaurant. It is always reliable and the price is reasonable. When I go there, I know that I’ll enjoy the food every time. The price is on the higher end, but it is a fair price for the food and the service.

We have been going to Amanda’s for our anniversary since it opened (28 years). Although I think the recent menu changes aren’t all great, the food and ambiance remains excellent. The service last night was also very good - friendly and attentive but not overbearing. Live music was a nice touch and the musicians were excellent. Overall, another romantic and memorable experience.
