We have eaten at Amada many times and have always had a great experience. This last time our entrees took an unusually long time to reach our table after we finished our tapas. Without any prompting on our part, a manager came over, explained the delay and promised to make things right. We very much appreciate the way Amada handled it. The food was still worth the wait and we won’t hesitate to return to Amada again soon.

Fantastic meal! My father is in a wheelchair and everyone was extremely accommodating. Food was TOP notch. For 4 people we had about 12 dishes. All of them were fantastic. Highlights were the wild mushrooms and octopus. The only thing that was a bit underwhelming was the Iberico de bellota. Great wine selection as well as cocktails before - the Rose Gold was delicious. Service was impeccable. I am thrilled that this restaurant is so good after being open so many years.

Lovely view of the US Customs House with outdoor dining. Perfect mound of green salad with fava beans and avocado. The grilled mushrooms were delectable.

Amazing food! Awesome assortment of tapas, good to share for about two people per tapa. Nice quiet ambience. We celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday here and they sent out a dessert dish with a candle. Great place for a date!

Food was great. Restaurant needs to invest in the heaters for outdoor dining, especially given Covid-19. Besides being cold while dining, I would definitely recommend Amada to a friend.

Definitely will not be back. Horrible service. We had to keep waving someone down for common sense things that we weren’t given. No utensils, coffee refill, salt/pepper for the bland food, is everything ok? How’s your meal? We just had food dropped off and then forgotten about...anytime we asked for things it took FOREVER to receive them or felt like we were inconveniencing them. It was completely empty inside and we did have noon reservations so maybe they were all over the place because they just opened or the outside people were the priority but all I know is we were dying to be done and leave. Such a waste of money.

It was our first time at Amada and we loved the food! Everything is served as small plates (tapas) and we tried the crab stuffed peppers, lamb meatballs, spicy garlic shrimp and the octopus. I think our favorite were the peppers, but can't wait to return to try the lamb chops! Ray was our server, he was amazing - attentive, knowledgeable and extremely nice. We truly enjoyed our evening.

Even though all tables were outdoors due to the COVID restrictions, we enjoyed a most wonderful evening of delicious food and friendly, professional service. Each course exceeded our expectations, and at the conclusion of our meal one of the managers took the time to chat with us about our experience - they show they care.
We'll be back!

Went here for restaurant week and it wasn’t worth the value at all. $20 for lunch included one tiny appetizer, two tapas for the main course, and literally one single bite of cheesecake for dessert lol. The food was good but portions were way too small

I’ve eaten here twice, mid-week dinner and Sunday brunch. Both times the outdoor seating was lovely, the staff accommodating and friendly, and the food exceptional even in Philly’s great food scene. Although menu is designed to share, it was fine for individual dining too. All 3 of us wanted the shrimp appetizer anyway; it was heavenly. Highly recommend trying Amada during Restaurant Week. Best of the ones I’ve tried for value and variety.
