    Food is very good and interesting. Good ambiance and service. The tapas menu could be larger for the brunch seatings. I expected more variety since that is the specialty

    We enjoyed a lovely dinner at Amada for Philly Restaurant Week. For a mere $40 pp, we enjoyed ten courses of deliciousness, including lamb ablondigas, which had deep flavor and the elemental tang of pimenton. Patatas Bravas and the Croquettas were delicious, sharing a pimenton aioli. Cheese was thoughtfully presented with truffled lavender honey and what likely was Nutella. Sometimes, at small plates restaurants, you can leave...ready for a snack. Our meal at Amada was delicious, filling in just the right measure, and a steal at the generous Restaurant Week price. I'll happily return again! Many thanks to all who made our evening such a delight.

    My partner and I went there for the first time during restaurant week and we had a really good time! I was honestly scared I’d be hungry given their dining experience consists of multiple small plates, but I couldn’t even finish my second main plate, and we ended up sharing one desert, and taking a second one home. My favorite part was their amazing vegetarian options. The food was delicious and I’ll certainly be back!

    We had such a lovely experience, thank you to our server Nick and the rest of the dining room team. Every dish and cocktail was delicious. It was quite busy but we felt well taken care of despite that. I really enjoyed the banquette style table with soft lighting, it was a nice intimate location and hope to sit at the same table next time!

    Me and my sister came out for restaurant week and had a drink at the bar because we were early. Drinks were amazing and service at the bar was good. Then we got sat and had dinner. Every plate that came out was perfect again we loved our server Jenna to death. Amazing and fun experience.

    Great night at Amada! We took advantage of the restaurant week special! What a treat - everything we tried was delicious from the patatas bravas to the garlic shrimp and all the amazing dishes in between . Such interesting combinations of flavors with lovely presentation. Our server was the perfect kind of intuitive server- she was there when we needed her and offered lots of great suggestions. Check it out! You’ll be 🙂

    Love Amada. Their food is great but there were a couple of dishes that were a bit bland. I had the paella with the wagyu skirt steak. Steak was mouthwatering but the paella itself had little flavor. We added some spice from another dish and it helped. Staff was impeccable and drinks were outstanding.

    We went for restaurant week so it was a limited menu (had been craving tortilla espanola which they were not offering). We understood going into it that Amada is tapa style or small plates, but even for tapas the servings were very small. Patatas bravas is usually a heaping bowl of potatoes smothered in sauce and these were 6 pieces plated in a row. The croquetas were delicious, but only bite-sized. The octopus was the highlight of our meal and one thing they didn't skimp on! Our server was very nice and the food runners were conscientious of how all of the plates really crowd the table. Overall the food was good, but the price you pay for the amount was not ideal.

    Amazing food and service. Only recommendation for improvement is when they serve red meat, offer a sharp knife. I had to eat my lamb like a caveman because the knife given to me was not sharp enough.

    We went the first night of restaurant week. They ran out of Brussels Sprouts and allowed my 2 friends to order off the menu anything they liked as well as giving them a jar of their fig berry jam. They were so accommodating !! We loved everything. The only dish which was plain was the paella without any added meat or seafood. The lamb meatballs and stuffed peppers delicious.
