This was my favorite restaurant. I was really disappointed. Seems like they added way too much salt to a lot of the dishes. The selection of plates seemed to be duplicates of each other. The lamb chops were still good. Will try it again, but not a destination spot after this experience.

Service was lovey as usual and the ambiance was very romantic. However I wish I had known it would be a pre fixed menu when I made the reservation. We felt a little limited. We also spent quite a bit of money to have to share an entree and dessert... overall food was good but I don’t think it was a good value.

Waiters were a bit cold and food portions seemed small relative to price. It was delicious though.

Both my husband and I have Celiac disease. They were very accommodating and everyone was great, double and triple checking that all ingredients were gluten free. Would highly recommend!

Amada never fails to be excellent. Always a solid choice, and fun to taste a lot of different dishes with the small tapas plates.

We had an amazing dinner! We were celebrating a birthday and had great service and food. We did the chefs tasting and they were very accommodating to my aversions.

The food was delicious and our server made sure we were happy with everything. I didn't love being seated at a hightop at the bar when I had a reservation. Dinner was a bit less relaxed than planned with people rushing past us throughout the meal. Overall a very good experience.

We were really pleased with the food and service during restaurant week. The chicken and steak 'a la plancha' were fantastic, also highly recommend the garlic shrimp. Cocktails were okay and the place was a little loud, but overall we had a great experience.

This was my second time at Amada for restaurant week. I cannot express how much I look forward to coming here for lunch. Their menu was well thought out- there were options for vegetarians, pescatarians and meat lovers alike. The best part of this experience was that I tried a dessert I thought I wouldn’t like -just to say I tried both desserts- and ended up loving it! Definitely make sure to stop by the next restaurant week.

I went to this restaurant for restaurant week. The menu did not disappoint. All offered dishes showed a degree of sophistication in their preparation, in the procurement of fine ingredients, and were presented in an appealing and elegant way. I would highly recommend this place for tapas, wine, and cocktails.

Food was outstanding, with the exception of the grilled shrimp. It was extremely "fishy". Hostesses were awful. Just walked away, didn't seat us and came back to the front with a blank look on her face, I assume wondering why we didn't go to the table. She never said a word to us. We had to ask if that was our table and got a simple "yeah" in response. Other than that, our waiter was exceptional, wine and food was delicious. Nice atmosphere.

Went during center city restaurant week. I was expecting a great night having heard great things from friends and family but my experience was just good, nothing special. I suspect that is due to restaurant week though so I look forward to returning for the normal service. Unexpected highlight was the infused honey. I would go back just for that.
