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!

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

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.

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!

Dinner for two at Andaluca was exceptional. My wife really enjoyed the paella (good sized portion, I had to help her finish it). I had a black cod dish that was very good. The next day for breakfast I had the Italian style eggs Benedict and was blown away. It was without a doubt the best eggs Benedict of my entire life (and I've had a lot as I've ordered eggs Benedict at least half of the time when I go out for breakfast). Service was superb and very nice ambiance too. Our new favorite Seattle restaurant!

My wife and I had a great time at Andaluca. The beets were great, in a nice presentation with walnuts, heirloom tomatoes and Beet Muhammad’s.

The mushroom soup of the day was flavorful and just the right depth.


The pork tenderloin was terrific. Cooked to perfection at medium rare.

I would recommend Andaluca to anyone looking for an elegant but fun and contemporary restaurant.

This is a nice restaurant though a bit drafty, no matter where we sat there was a cool draft.The place was always busy and the staff worked very hard but the food took a while to come.The vegetarian option ( only one) for dinner was not good , breakfast offered lots of choice.I have been here a few times and it has been better on my previous visits.I'll be willing to try it again.

First time visit for all 4 of us. We enjoyed the ACT Matinee and walked to Andaluca. ‘Tis the Christmas season and there were just the right decor to make it festive. The Sangria was perfect. We had numerous starters, sides and all ordered different entrees. Days after we all are still talking about the amazing flavors we enjoyed. Truly the best food experience and we will be back. Bravo!

Wonderful evening starting with complimentary valet service. We were seated promptly and shortly thereafter two glasses of complimentary champagne arrived to toast our anniversary. We enjoyed every one of our food selections. Afterward we agreed that the service was excellent, always there to cover the next step but never in an obtrusive way. The wine list is comprehensive although one is unlikely to choose this restaurant strictly for the wine. The experience is capped off by walking out the door to your waiting car.
Andaluca is a delight.

What a pleasant surprise. The service was fantastic, the drinks unique and tasty, but the food...OMG...the food was amazing. We chose this restaurant to have dinner before seeing a show at the Paramount, and the staff was cognizant of the time and rushed to get the bill for our group so we wouldn't be late for the show. I will definitely be back.

I have dined at Andalucca on a number of occasions . It is the perfect choice if you want to be able to catch up with a friend as you can hear one another and aren't rushed. BUT the food was disappointing. The portion of the roasted chicken was very small and the carrots were Particularly soggy and tasteless. I'm not certain I'll give them another chance.

Andaluca has been a favorite restaurant for years, but this time we had the unfortunate timing of eating there soon after the new chef took over. The kitchen has some real issues that need to be cleared up. Chicken skewers coming out overdone and dry; crab tower tasteless (someone forgot to add salt). Paella just adequate. In their defense, they apologized and comped our food which we didn’t expect. For that reason we will give them another try in a few months. The bar is high. Hopefully they can get their act together.

The food at Andaluca was excellent! The Rib Roast and the Duck were fan favorites at the table. The particular server that we had was inattentive, scattered and not very knowledgeable regarding the food or wine. He did not read any specials to us even after we were sitting there for 20 minutes without him coming over to our table. Furthermore it took over 20 minutes to receive two glasses of wine and an old fashioned during a time that it was not busy whatsoever. It actually took the man bussing the tables to overhear our displeasure and he intervened. Overall I would recommend Andaluca for the food and the atmosphere. I just hope you don't get the same server we did.

Dinner for two, two glasses of wine, shared salad, soup (amazing) and desert for under $100, plus free valet parking. I will be back and I recommend it to all.
