Food is elegantly presented, delicious and not overly spiced or complicated. Service was great and server was extremely friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Where to begin. We've never had a better meal. We basically chose our hotel in Seattle (which was also exceptional) purely based on having Andaluca on site. The Rib Roast was perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection. The risotto was unbelievable. We had a fantastic server who gave us a suggestion from the wine list that was a perfect complement to our meal, along with a great suggestion on a post-meal activity. We were so happy, we decided to have breakfast the next morning there, and I will never forget their almond stuffed brioche french toast. Every member of the staff was a joy to interact with, which is a rarity to be sure. We may have to move to Seattle just for this restaurant alone.

Choose the halibut in a creamy asparagus sauce; my entree was absolutely first class and with a generous portion of fish. Pair it with a viognier, as a first glass I tried with chardonnay was just too grapey for the fish, "non-oaked chard" or not. But the floral viognier was ideal.

Somewhat disappointing! This place was highly recommended on Open Table and Trip Advisor so we tried it our last night in Seattle. I wish we had repeated at one of our earlier restaurants.....the paella was gloppy and overdone. My wife's lamb was well prepared, though. For the price an altogether below average experience......

Our server, James, was just the amount of 'attentive' - and very charming.
We loved our appetizers, salads, main courses, dessert - it was all
very delicious. Ambiance was perfect!

Andaluca pride themselves on their Spanish tinged menu highlighted by their Paella. I have visited Spain on vacation numerous times and lived there for three years in my early twenties ... nothing on the menu reminded me of that countries wonderful food.
In particular their Paella was really disappointing being bland and missing out totally on the spicy flavor of pimento peppers, chorizo and saffron...the dish also appeared to have been blasted under a salamander so the top was crusty and the seafood dried out.
The separately priced bread service offered a modest portion of the worse bread that I've been served in some time.

Not really impressed. Spent 300.00 for a party of 5. The food was ok, nothing special, 2 of our plates were just barely Luke warm. The Paella was bland, the muscles and clams were very small. The service was slow. It took about 45 mins for 1 person in our party to get his drink. They didn't have Valet parking as promised. Later found out that you have to find the Valet attendant if not out front. We did appreciate the ambience though.

Andaluca was amazing. I had requested that they have a bottle of champagne waiting on the table as we were celebrating an engagement that night. They certainly delivered as it was waiting on the table and the manager greeted us and poured the bubbles himself. The food was excellent. Overall, they made our celebration a great experience.

A very good, simple menu with a Mediterranean bent. Very good Olives, Hummus, and Baba Gonoush (Well, duh!). Consistently good dishes. The Paella is one of the better ones in Seattle.

 (Salt Lake City)·Dined on February 22, 2017

This place had a very high rating on trip advisor so my wife and I decided to try it out. We both left a little disappointed. The service was slow and sort of... "quircky". Paella generally takes a while, but this took a VERY long time. When it finally arrived unfortunately it was sort of over-cooked. The rice was really hard and crunchy on the top and the shrimp was pretty dried out. It tasted like it had been left in the oven too long under a blower and all of the moisture had been sucked out. My wife's meal (petit rib-roast) was definitely better but also left her taste-buds feeling a little flat. Maybe it was just an off-night...

Service started out on the slow side on a busy evening. We seemed to have been forgotten. But the recovery was excellent after we were discovered. Our orders were a little "out of the box," but the response was excellent. For example, I wanted a dinner salad after my warm dishes. No problem and the salad, a mixture of fresh seasonal greens was a wonderful item to compliment the other selections. We did not order an entrée but chose to mix several "starters." As examples, the scallops were to die for. So were the roasted brussel sprouts. A chicken kabob highlighted interesting flavors with an emphasis on harissa. Not a common spice, but a perfect match. Were stymied by the wine list, but out waiter suggested a California Chardonnay, which as a half bottle did not break the budget and ended up being a perfect match for our food selections. Our dessert was en equally excellent cheese plate which highlighted three outstanding cheeses. Again, not a typical dessert item for may restaurants but handled superbly. As an aside, in a past visit, I did try the pork chops for an entrée which was excellent and in my opinion, the most exciting option. Overall, an excellent culinary experience that I would recommend to anyone- except those in a rush.
