Very attentive, but not at all oppressive, service. Beautiful mix of classic Mediterranean cuisines. The sangria is worth the trip by itself. First class free valet parking. My date loved it all. I could get to be a regular.

Typically, we eat breakfast at Andaluca about once per month. Heather, a terrific long-time employee there, recommended Andaluca for dinner, so we gave it a try.

Our dinner was absolutely outstanding. My husband had the paella, which he raved about. I had the risotto, and it was undoubtedly the best risotto I have ever eaten. Additionally, we had grilled artichokes and Yukon gold mashed potatoes that were just as wonderful.

The ambiance changes considerably between breakfast and dinner at Andaluca. If you eat breakfast here, you are treated to a terrific meal, with great service, in a bright and lively atmosphere. At dinner, the lights are lowered, and the mood changes, creating a cozy atmosphere.

I highly recommend Andaluca for both dinner and breakfast. The staff working both are wonderful, and service is always top-notch.

The food was good but not exceptional. The bread was not fresh and didn't taste good. Baba ganoush and humous with it was one of the worst I've had. Atmosphere was very nice and quiet and romantic and comfortable. Food did not meet my expectations. Food is a bit too salty and rich, and appies and meals tasted the same,as though made from the same broth base. Came from Canada , first night in Seattle on conference. Chose it for the romantic element, and quiet, but expected so much more from food. I felt like my table was sticky.

Mostly dissatisfied

 (Los Angeles)·Dined on July 29, 2017

Had scallops and hummus kawarma as appetizers. Scallops was way better than hummus kawarma but it was too salty/sugary and not warm. Kawarma did not taste very good, it was a very simple appetizer that I would not include in the menu of a restaurant like this. Paella was not bad but was not as good as a signature dish of a restaurant should be. Finally, the desert we got was the liquid chocolate cake. Unfortunately, it was also served at a very warm temperature that it felt like it waited to be served in the kitchen after it was prepared. We went this restaurant with very high expectations but it did not come anywhere close to those expectations.

Although I originally thought I reserved a table for 5 the team a Team andaluca had me down with a table for 3.

Once we cleared it out they were very accommodating and my party loved the restaurant.

Professional service, cost setting with awesome food!

Thanks for hosting us!

 (Portland)·Dined on July 14, 2017

We very much appreciated being seated early and at a more "quiet' table (considering the energy in the restaurant), as we had requested. The waiter.service was great, positive and helpful attitude, informative, pleasant, attentive.
We were disappointed that the menu was different from the menu on the internet, but were told that the restaurant tries to offer seasonal dishes. The Potato/Leek soup was tasty and a good value. The Pork Belly was so tough that I struggled to cut it even with a steak knife. I would not recommend the dish. The Paella was advertised as a signature dish, but was not memorable, despite the steep price. The ambiance was lively and energetic.

Decent food at highish prices. Had pork belly appetizer which was disappointingly average. Wife had paella which was again pretty average. I had the run roast which was excellent. Good wait staff kept the mood high though the food was good but not great. Would probably give it another chance, but would need to be better to warrant the choice.

A sublime eating experience! Our group of 4 shared the bread service with hummus and baba ganoush (excellent!), shish taouk (so savory), and potato croquettes (delicious). We each ordered and LOVED the grilled lamb loin chops in tabil marinade (perfectly seasoned and cooked). The chocolate lava cake was heavenly, according to those at the table who indulged. The service was top-notch. When we return to Seattle, we will be sure to have another meal at Andaluca.

Neither my fiance nor I have ever been to Andaluca previously. We both thoroughly enjoyed it. She had the halibut and I had the paella after we had split a cheese plate. We shared a bottle of pinto gris. The food was superb, the ambiance was great but the piece de resistance was the service. We will definitely recommend this place to our friends and we will definitely return.

Service made the night as our server was great and made excellent suggestions. Thought the menu was limited and expected more choices but the pork chop my husband chose was good and the petite rib roast was good as well. Best dish was the vegetable soup which sounded like a melange of vegetables and was excellent. Don't know that I'd come back next visit to Seattle but it's worth a visit.

Made a reservation and was seated promptly. The waiter was good. The food was good but very small portions for the price. Very nice ambiance and enjoyed the music was played at a low level so you can converse and not yell. I would recommend but do not come starving but just ready to enjoy a very nice dinner.

Welcoming, friendly and attentive staff. Warm setting with a very cozy feeling. Ordered bread, salad, kale and halibut, wine and Sangria. All very well done. Staff was helpful with navigating the challenges of a shellfish allergy. A lovely relaxed dinner. I would highly recommend Andaluca if you're looking for a nice dinner in downtown Seattle.

We were in town for a convention and this restaurant was at the top of the trip advisor list for nearby restaurants. Really good food; my husband had the halibut and I had the risotto. We also had an over the top server. Only issue is the high price. I guess you get what you pay for.

Solid meal. The appetizers and entrees were quite tasty. The salads were fine, but nothing special. The wine list was good, their cocktails strong, and it's the best Sangria I've had in the States (small sample size, though). Dessert (the panna cotta) was also notable for being light and a nice way to taper off the meal. Decent atmosphere, great and attentive service, and a good place to hang with friends. We'll be back sometime, but we're not going to rush out over other options.
