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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
