We had a great dinner & evening at Amada. One member of our group has a garlic allergy & even with us ordering the tasting menu the staff did an excellent job being sure to provide alternative selections related to this. Thanks so much!

Amada is, in a word, excellent! We've been going there for several years now and always enjoy it. The food, the service, and the ambiance are always top-notch. We particularly love Sunday night tapas meals, where there are many offerings for $5 per plate, so we can get a lot of variety without spending a lot.

We had a great dinner at Amada several months ago and were looking for a last-minute place for a Sunday brunch. Honestly, Amada was not our first choice, because of the menu selection. Ultimately, I'm glad we went because the food was fabulous and I will definitely go again. I had the Serrano ham, which I was looking forward to since I've had it before. In addition, I had Torrijas (tapas style fried french toast with apples and a sherry caramel sauce). The french toast was so good that I ordered a second serving!

The brunch was excellent. Crab Benedict a must! Bench seating along the wall needs replaced. Too low and felt like I was sliding on the bench onto the floor

We had a reservation, we were on time, but had to wait. Once seated after 35 minutes, we were escorted to the back room and offered a complimentary charcuterie plate for our troubles. This was gracious. The room was too noisy however. We were moved to another table but the noise was a huge deterrent. The food was excellent and the value was pretty good. But they need some more sounds absorbers in the back room.

Everything we had at the restaurant was tremendously good, from the manchego cheese, chorizo, and chicken tapas to the wagyu steak and lamb chops. It was a great time for our anniversary.

My wife I favorite restaurant in the city. Went to celebrate our anniversary. Great overall flavor on all the dishes we had. Tapas style allows for trying a number of dishes . A very nice selection of Spanish wine by glass and bottle.

We were seated quite late for our reservation, but the service and food made up for it. Would love to go back, either with a group or date night.

Celebrating birthdays. Only complaint is that the restaurant was chilly by the big windows. And it has a lot of big windows.

The best meal I have had in a very long time. The service was phenomenal. I don't remember her name but she was fantastic, excellent wine suggestion. The food was literally mouth watering and everything had a perfectly robust amount of flavor balance. We had 3-4 (maybe even 5 courses with the compliments of the chef), 2 bottles of wine and 2 desserts. We wildly over indulged but did not regret anything about it. I literally would be back tomorrow if I could.

The absolute HIGHEST of a RECOMMENDATION, as I could possibly offer.

It was quite a treat to eat at Amada. We chose the chef's menu with 9 courses at $45 per person. It was almost too much food, but we finished all the plates. We also appreciated the wine selection and the recommendation. It is not an inexpensive restaurant, but it is most certainly worth every penny.

We went here for our anniversary and it was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. We have been to many James Beard award winning restaurants and this was one of the best. We may even make a special trip to Philadelphia to come back. Try the chef tasting menu!

We had a wonderful dinner with out of town guests. The food was delicious! Recommend the garlic shrimp, gazpacho, and paella. The only problem was the noise level with one man at the table next to us very very loud.

Amadas a great place to eat. The ambiance is sexy. The food is very tasty. The service the past 4 times I came here were always quick and proper. What’s not too love, right?
Only advice is to order more than you would, especially in a larger group. Recently we came as a party for 7 and we got 2 dishes of the same item to share for the table. Some dishes I only had 1 bite of because of the portion size. I would recommend ordering 1 dish per 2 people and get ready to spend some money. Though expensive (ex. 7$ for 7 small circles of “patatas bravas”) the experience and taste of the cuisine is worth it.
Please try the Pernil/ lamb meatballs/ Waygu/ Pulpo/ Paella. Those are some of our tasty favorites.

Amada never disappoints! This was a special celebration for our family and we truly had a memorable night at Amada! Our waiter was so attentive and pleasant! This was a first visit for a couple of my kids and they just can't stop praising Amada and the incredible meal! Thank you for making my birthday celebration perfect!

The food was better than I had in Spain! Interesting and complex flavors. The only down side was the noise level. It was hard to talk without shouting. I highly recommend.
