Amazing service, environment and most of all food!
We are an older married couple with eclectic dining tastes and quite enjoyed this Andalusian / Morrocan restaurant. The lighting at our inner table that evening was poor and I had to help my husband read his menu, but sitting by the street-side windows for breakfast was delightful in all respects. The food was excellent and the Spanish Rioja we had with it was very good and complimented it nicely. The wait time for our meals was well within reasonable but there were only around 4-5 other parties in the restaurant at that time. The staff were quite attentive and pleasant. All-in-all I would recommend this restaurant for a variety of dining requirements.
Food was good, dessert was great! Server both friendly and helpful.
This was our first time at Andaluca and was such a wonderful experience! The atmosphere, the service and the food were all amazing!
Amazing dining experience! This was our first time here and were more than pleasantly surprised. The food was phenomenal and the service was great. We had the soup of the day (eggplant), risotto, avocado and roasted carrot salad, and brussel sprouts as a side. Everything was cooked perfectly and I have zero complaints.
The Paella was to die for, it was the best dish on the menu along with the Negroni.
We celebrated our birthdays there and really enjoyed the ambiance and food. Great service nonetheless. I'd go back in a heart beat.
Service, food,and drink were amazing I would highly recommend coming again and getting an early reservation
In recent years, Andaluca has been on my list of top three Seattle restaurants, along with Il Terrazzo Carmine and Dahlia Lounge. Our experience on March 7, 2018 was very good, but not quite up to par. I've had the paella many times, but did not think it was up to standard. For example, the sausage was tough and tasteless - and the seafood ingredients seem to have been cut back. Also, I've had the beet salad before, but didn't like it as much this time - not enough flavor, and served in an awkward dish (as it has been before) - trendy, but not easy to eat without spilling. I will continue to rate Andaluca among my top restaurants, but for the prices they are charging, I expect a bit more.
Food was excellent. My daughter has celiac disease and just about the whole menu was available for her to eat. We especially loved the chocolate lava cake. Will be coming back.
This was our second visit. First time I thought the food was excellent. My husband thought it was good but not great. This time, we both left saying we probably don’t need to go back. (We try to go out to dinner every Saturday night) Nothing bad to say about Andaluca except we felt like we paid too much for a good meal (not a great meal). If you’re leaving towards trying it, I’d say try this place but you may end up thinking “this place was ok”.
I walk by this place everyday from work and have been curious if it was good....Indeed it was!
My friend & I had dinner here after a play. When we arrived we had to use the hotel entrance because there was an issue with the main door. The Hotel is somewhat of a maze to find the restaurant, but it was all good.
The food was great! With surprisingly quite generous portions in comparison to such upscale eateries.
The ambiance it feels peculiar to me, but I suppose it could be considered unique.
Service was excellent with the staff, checking in but not too often or hovering for that matter, which is always good.
Overall,a great experience that would likely be on special occasions because,it's a bit pricey!
We go to Andaluca first and foremost for the paella. It never fails to delight. Last night I had the duck (while my partner devoured his paella!) and must say that it was perhaps the best duck I've ever had in Seattle or anywhere! Simply amazing. Cocktails well made, good size, and delish. We shared the passion fruit sorbet for dessert and, as a passion fruit aficionado, was not disappointed! Tangy and smooth, as it should be! One of the few places in Seattle, where you can actually hear yourselves speak. A definite pleasure.
This place was really good, lots of flavor Excellent food, the sangria is a must.
An exceptional evening--wonderful food and outstanding service. I'd recommend Andaluca to anyone looking for fine food in a warm and welcoming space, dandy cocktails, and attentive service.
Consistently one of the best restaurants in Seattle. Small enough to feel very personal. Not noisy like some places. Service was impeccable. And gluten free! Celebrated another anniversary feeling very special.
I made reservations here for Valentine’s Day. They were one of the few restaurants in town that was NOT doing a tasting menu or set menu for Valentine’s Day which I was very grateful for. We had reservations at 8 pm, got there right at 8 and was seated right away. Our waitress was super amazing and she was very sweet. We decided to get a bottle of wine for the table. We couldn’t decide on which wine and she gave us the best recommendation, Chateau Ste. Michelle Sauvignon Blanc . The wine was sooo good, I just got home from vacation and bought 2 bottles. We ordered the Tres Leche Cheese and Scallops as an appetizer. The cheese was amazing and so unexpected. The scallops were delicious. For our main course I ordered the Rib roast. It was incredible. My boyfriend got the pork tenderloin. He literally licked his plate clean. He loved every bite of it. I can’t remember what we got for dessert. It was some sort of custard but it was amazing. Needless to say next time we’re in Seattle we will be back for dinner.
Always have the most incredible soups. Order the soup no matter what it is. Really.
The ambience was nice but the service was slow . It took a long time to even get a drink - 15 mins
The food was very mediocre. We had a cheese plate that was served with old cheese with a plastic look and dry texture. The salad was over dressed and the Paella took over 50 mins to get after the cheese plate arrived. The Paella was over cooked with dry seafood and the chorizo was dry as well.The rice tasted boring
We did not eat this.... The server was decent but seldom seen through out the meal to check in.
Don't go here ! The whole experience unfortunately was past its due date.
It was our 27th anniversary so the staff was extra wonderful!
We tried a variety of dishes, all were excellent. My husband said his Venison was the best thing he has eaten in a while.
A great return. We had not been at Andaluca in a number of years, rather a forgotten gem. A special anniversary dinner and theatre and celebration. Service was great and food was exceptional.
We'll definitely return!
Came here for an anniversary dinner before seeing a show at the Paramount. It was a quiet, low lighting, romantic vibe when we were seated. Service was excellent, and our waiter was very mindful of the timing for dinner based on when we needed to be at the theater. We received champagne and a dessert on the house for our celebration, which was a lovely touch. Food was delicious and well portioned. All in all a great experience.
Tasty, imaginative menu, really good service and a half bottle of wine option for those who don't wish to fall asleep at the ballet! Thanks, Andaluca!
Really a nice restaurant. Very warm and cozy with a great feel of privacy even though busy. One small point that I personally object to--our meal, all in, was over $100 a plate and we got charged $4 for bread? Really?
There were four of us and we ordered as many different items as possible. We didn't have anything we didn't love.
This place is nothing short of amazing. My wife and I went for our anniversary. They gave us complimentary champagne and a dessert. The service was awesome. We felt special. Our server was friendly and gave us just the right amount of attention. Hats off to the chef as well. The food was spectacular. We ordered the pork and duck entree. Everything was cooked perfectly and the flavors were just delightful. Rich, bold, and delicate. The only knock is the time between the appetizer and the entree - it took a bit more time than anticipated, but that wasn't a huge deal.
I also want to point out (and this isn't anything to do with the restaurant) that this isn't super friendly for disabled people. The washroom takes a bit of stair to get to, so if you utilize a wheelchair or cannot walk stairs, you have to go outside and into the hotel to get to a different washroom. I know that has to do with older buildings and there's nothing to do about it, but it's still something that I think all businesses in downtown Seattle should take more seriously.
Fabulous wine, food and service! We had dinner before seeing a show at the Moore Theater and it was perfect. We'll be back.
This was the best meal we've had in Seattle in months. We highly recommend the za'atar encrusted pork tenderloin, and the crab tower was an excellent hors d'oeuvre. Outstanding in every sense!
We selected Andaluca because it was recommended as quiet, so that a party of 7-8 older adults could converse. The 'ambiance' was loud and the group was not able to fully engage for this reason. Service was reported to be slow.
This was our second visit to Andaluca. The first occasion was Thanksgiving, and they were jam packed. This was a friend/family get together MLK weekend. There were five of us. The service and food were fabulous.
Can't pick a favorite here - it's all too good. If it's your first time, you have to try the paella and their Sangria. Everything else is fantastic too, but these are signature dishes and worth your attention. The wine list was small but Very Good including selections from Washington legends Leonetti, Figgens and Quilceda Creek. The Scotch selection was also excellent - my husband had the Balvinie 12 yr - so smooth. The Manhattan and Lemondrop cocktails were also top of the line. We'll be back!
I have always had excellent meals with good service at Andaluca.
Andaluca Serves many wonderful breakfast items, but we were disappointed in their dinner. The puréed celery soup was good, but the sauce on their roast chicken was overly salty & their kale was tired, over cooked & wilted. The dessert cheese with membrillo was very good. We won’t return there for dinner, but will have breakfast there again.
Great ambience, comfortable booths, excellent, knowledgeable waiter, and very good food. The duck with a cab franc blend was amazing. A little pricy but worth it for a wonderful dinner experience in Seattle.
Small family get together - food and service were very good. Paella was the best I’ve had in a long time - others had the Tenderloin which was also very good. Wine was great as were mixed drinks -only downside is it’s pricey - this is one to save for a special occasion
Lovely, elegant setting with enough whimsy to be fun. The menu suited vegetarians and omnivores alike. Terrific location.
We selected this restaurant on December 25 not only because it was among the few open, but because of the good reviews. It did not disappoint: both the food and service were excellent. Next time we are in Seattle, we'll definitely go back.
Abslultely fabulous. The food was perfect. Highly recommend!
Wonderful dinner and dessert! Great ambiance.
We had the black cod-cooked perfectly as were the vegetables served with it. Maybe the best black cod I’ve ever had, crispy skin on top, melt in your mouth texture underneath. Appetizer chicken skewers and cheese course were also very good. Difficult to decide on a cheese as they had several interesting options. Very attentive server, with a level of professionalism you don’t get from many restaurants anymore. It really felt like fine dining!
