We had such a relaxing and enjoyable night out for my birthday. The tapas and vino special on Sunday’s is a great deal and awesome way to taste the menu, and wines at half price!

Second time eating here. We were a little disappointed that the menu was a brunch one and that not all the tapas was available. I found the rate that the food came out to be a little slow and it made me feel that this wasn’t a very relaxing lunch experience. The tapas that was available was very good. The brunch item French toast wasn’t the best and I don’t know why they were offering it really. Might be better to stick with what you know. However we do like this place and definitely would go again and recommend it for the tapas.

Went for a birthday celebration. The croquetas are my favorite but since it was later in the evening, they ran out. No worries, though, since I tried something new(the alcachofas romanas) and loved them.

Delicious!! Amazing good. Great service. Good time and service lagged a bit I think it’s because two large parties came in right next to us. Other than that, great! We’ll definitely be back

You can't go wrong at Amada! Our favorite is Sunday night for the wonderful tapas, but we've eaten there for lunches and dinners and there are so many outstanding dishes it's hard to choose. Highly recommended for everyone, especially foodies!!!

Food was fantastic, server was fantastic, pacing between plates was great. Our water was never low. The only complaint I do have is that noise tends to echo so at some points it felt very loud. Perhaps some more wall decor could help!

The Pernil dish (pork) was dry and not very tender; do not recommend. My wife had the dish with lamb and chorizo; she did not really like it, as it was mostly fat. We came here for our anniversary, hoping to have an outstanding experience after researching this restaurant and its chef, but were disappointed.

Food and service was phenomenal. The pernil was the best roasted pork I have ever eaten, this plate is a very generous portion, bring your appetite.

Overpriced for quality, quantity of food and service. That’s pretty much sums it up. Service is disjointed, slow. Many better options in Philly. Underwhelmed by the whole experience. Haven’t been in a while but that’s exactly how I remember it from last visit.

We had a very nice meal at a high top table near the bar. Every dish was prepared very well and was delicious. Only dish that disappointed was the octopus which was chewy. Drinks and service were excellent.

We ended up asking to eat outside in doing so I think we lost the full experience of Amada. The interior is cool and has a good ambience. Outside you are right on a busy street and there was someone standing on the street corner screaming (and apparently she is a common fixture there). The food was very good as was the service. I would eat there again but only inside.

Went for my husbands birthday. The food service was fast, but our waitress wasn’t very attentive in checking in or drink refills. Food was amazing though - did the chef tasting. 😍
