The Pastrami de Presa Iberica was a total nonsense...
The Oxtail hamburger with crispy onions and potato chips was good.
The Bacalao al Pil Pil was OKish.
The Tabla de Quesos was ridiculously minimal for $18. Milligrams of cheese (or less).
I paid $150+tip for 3 people and we came out unimpressed and disappointed.
Really good food, at a reasonable price, around Lincoln Center! plus being able to get in. I've lived in NY longer than Lincoln Center, and I still didn't believe it was possible. I hope not too many other people find out about it. The crush will be a personal loss.
I made the reservation online so wasn't aware that there was only the new year's pre-fix dinner being served as it wasn't stated in the ad. The menu wasn't published online either nor he woman I've talked to on the phone didn't say anything about this. So, when we arrived at the restaurant and was informed about this, I was disappointed. The choices were not very much palatable to us. Anyhow, we didn't have a choice so we just stayed and ordered the pre-fix menu. The food was delicious and the service is not that bad considering that the restaurant was packed with diners. They had a DJ playing music as well. So, I would say that we enjoyed the night and came out not to be a total write-off.
My friend and I booked last minute reservations at Andanada 141 for New Year's Eve and we couldn't have been more pleased. The pre-fixe menu was delicious and will make us certainly go back to try out their standard menu. The staff is very attentive and the space is great. So glad we came across this place!
Very disappointing. We were in previous round Garffit on 2011 new year's eve and had a great time. Visually, nothing seems to have changed since, but we just went back for 2013 new year's eve and the food was mediocre, service was horrible and overall disappointing.
Waited nearly 45 minutes AFTER the time of our reservation before we decided to leave. Never ate anything, just waited...and waited..and waited.... Also, Opentable requires that I leave a food rating, despite not trying any food.
New Year's menu was very nice. Looking forward to taste the regular menu which looks very interesting. So far so good, if you like Spanish food and wine, this is the place. Richard N
Food was great. Service just fair.Food arived for different people at different times and we had to remind the waitstaff several times we have not received all the food we had ordered.
Poor service, ok food.V nice space for the UWS.
This was my second time at Andanada and I was not disappointed. The octopus appetizer was interesting but the the mash potato puree made it a bit too heavy for me. The octopus was expertly prepared. The paella passed the "socarrat" test with flying colors - loved that crispy rice - wished they would have served it in the pan as they did in Barcelona. I will agree with others that the mariscos paella entree needed more seafood (entree a bit under-sized)
Wonderful,creative chef. Loved ambiance....
Stick to the tapas. They are better plates than the main courses, which were flavorful but sparse per $. The Ensalada de quesos y calabaza $11, did not live up to its description - 4 paper thin shavings of cheese were the only discernible quesos and everything else, i.e. raisins, calabaza, were barely there!
The sangria was excellent though.
A restaurant that the Upper Wet Side really needed. A wonderful menue.
Andanada is just lovely...a beautiful, modern dining space with incredible murals on the brick walls. And the staff is charming and helpful. The food is another matter: in updating classical Spanish dishes the chef sometimes fails to bring out all the great flavors associated with this cuisine. Some of the tapas are quite good...in fact, the Patatas Bravas, with their sprinkling of olive powder, are remarkable. The scorpion fish flan is quite interesting and well worth trying. Entrees fare less well. The portions are small (more like tapas-size) and just okay. A disappointing chocolate mousse was explained as an experiment, but unfortunately, we were still charged for it. Since this a new restaurant, it will probably improve.
This is a very beautiful very comfortable new place with very unusual spanish food. The tapas were ample and delicious and the main courses were excellent except that the portions were way too small. Desserts were also small for example rice pudding that seemed to have no rice. Our server Kelly was outstanding. This is a work in progress. We'll be back.
What a disappointment. We loved Gastroarte and were hoping for a repeat experience
Service-Gastroarte service made us feel that we were in someone's personal dining room. Andanada had many servers scurrying around, but no one approached our table unless food was being delivered. We asked for bread twice. One appetizer was delivered long before the second person's arrived.
Food-appetizers-a fried calamari was good, but what was described as a gazpacho was a tablespoon of unknown on top of which was poured a tasteless liquid (from a used liquor bottle). Main dishes-a just ok cod and what was listed as a seafood dish was mainly rice(tasty, if I had ordered a plate of rice) and seafood that had to be hunted for. WHAT A PITY!
The first meal we ate here was so great I made it a point to go back immediately. DReaming of clouds of cauliflower and smoky ham. Snowy octopus and delcious Spanish wines.
The hitch is the first great meal was followed by a good one same menu but somehow dialed back a notch.
Went again just for a glass of wine and some tapas. Good. I'll give it one more go but I wonder about the consistancy of the kitchen.
My husband and I dined here for the first time last night. The decor is fun and different and the waiters are very friendly and chatty. The pate de cabracho was very good (for those who really like fish) and really unique to us. The jamon iberico was excellent. The ensalada de quesos y calabaza was a light addition and the ingredients worked well together. We both had the cola de langosta. I didn't really love the rice couscous although the crunchy texture was a good contrast to the lobster meat and the soup which had a good flavor. The chestnut soup with brownie and ice cream was good - the flavors were not as powerful as I expected as all the ingredients blended a bit. My husband enjoyed the torrijas con helado de tomate.
Though the food was tasty, the portions were tiny. A scallop dish for over $25 with exactly two scallops. The restaurant was such poor value that I cannot recommend it. When this criticism was offered during the meal, no one from management even came to the table. The food was actually tasty. The waiter was reasonably competent but not well informed about the preparations on the menu. I do not predict success for this restaurant
We were a party of six and decided to go and try this recently open restaurant which offers spanish fare.
The place is nicely decorated. On the wall there is a nice mural of a bullfighter.
The service was very attentive.
As appetizer had pulpo a la gallega. It was very good. It was unusual since it was covered by potato puree. We have known the grilled octopus and sweet panish paprika as one of the main ingredients but no potato.
For drink we had a red Priorat wine with great bouquet which was to the delight of each one in our party. One of our friends had a nice galician lager beer.
The entrees arrived to our table at the same time.They were nicely done. They were very small. They were actually tapas-size.
We felt deceived by the
We had a meal of numerous tapas, each of which was innovative and delicious. Enjoyed the sangria.
Would have given food a very good had the portions had been bigger. The size of the "Rice Pudding" in particular was scanty. It consisted of 1 Tbs at max of pudding and 4 small rice wafers like the ones one gets from the Korean store. This cost abt $7-9 The flavors were very good, though. Portions should be bigger for the price.
The paella athough flavorful was very al dente. I travel frequently to Spain and grew up in P.R., so I know my rice.
Tapas bar and limited restaurant menu. Some tapas very good, others less so but all very generous portions. Service outstanding, ambience very pleasant. Worth a revisit with careful selection of tapas.
Some things are better left as a memory. We expected the same quality of food and service that we experienced with Gastroarte. We didn't expect such a radical difference in the overall dining experience. Andanada 141 tries too hard and falls short of its predecessor. Every dish was over seasoned and competing with the next. The service was officious...staff was inexperienced and intrusive. We recd appetizers with no plates, flatware incorrectly set...dishes crashing to the floor around us...all set to a backdrop of a brightly lit, loud room. If you are going to place tables so close to each other, then please apologize in advance for the "butts" that are about to intrude on your dining table as clients squeeze into their seats.
Andanada is finally one of the best Spanish restaurants in NYC. Original and tasty “Patatas Bravas”, Cod “pil-pil” or Ox Tail Burger… Food is delicious. They must improve the wine list and wine temperatures to pair the outstanding food. Service good considering the recent changes in management. Great change, even better than the excellent modern-Spanish stile Gastroarte. The bar was lively and ambiance was relaxed and casual.
lively atmosphere; interesting tapas -- very ambitious, but not always successful; service is warm and eager but not yet coordinated. I understand the place just opened; it will probably get better with experience.
very cute restaurant - the food was pretty tasty. could tell they're still working out the kinks of being newly opened but i expect great things in the future. will definitely check it out again in about a month to see how far they've come :)
We expected the food from this place to be amazing but to our surprise a disappointment. We ordered 6 tapas and 1 main course. Out of the 6 tapas, only the octopus dish was memorable. The other 5 were nothing special with one of them being not good(one with peas and peppermint oil). The main course was very small, smaller than some of our tapas. The ambiance and service were fine but we won't be going back considering the prices for the ok food.
Living on the Upper West Side it is difficult to find fine cuisine without leaving the area. Andanada offers a great menu with a variety of Spanish dishes. The vibe of Andanda can be described as classy without being pretentious. The service was on point and our server, Kelly was very personable. I will definitely return to this new/neighborhood restaurant.
Just opened- has a ways to go - staff needs to know more
Amazing, AMAZING Food!!! excellent combinations with fabulous technique. Great recommendations from the server. Absolute entertainment to sit at the bar and walk through the menu; and don't miss the torrijas with tomato ice cream!
My first impression of Andanada was decadent yet relaxed. Great atmosphere for some cocktails. The bartender was really friendly and the cocktail/wine selection offers a variety of options. My husband and I started with some tapas recomended by our server. Each dish was made with much effort and was as beautiful as it was tasty. Our favorite was the octopus. Although Andanada is new the service was great and the atmosphere is to be recommended. Good crowd, beautiful decor - I would recommend this spot for foodies in the Upper West Side.
Wife and I were seated and idn't see our server for 10 minutes. We had to ask for bread and olive oil (which some tables had and some didn't). We ordered 3 tapas dishes and 2 mains: 2 of 3 tapas dishes arrived after 20 minutes, and that was the end of the evening! The 3rd tapas never arrived and our server didn't bother to appear at our table for 45 minutes exactly. When we finally asked what was going on, she casually said, "Oh let me check". She arrived back and informed us "your order didn't go in, but the kitchen is working on it". We took the check (with no entrees), and the check shamlessly billed 3 tapas, though only the 2 arrived. Noise level was also shocking which added to the overall unpleasant, inexcusable evening
Excellent...It was food nirvana! Our entire dining experience was wonderful - the food, was fantastic - I recommend the Oxtail burger (very rich!, the Pate di Cabracho and for dessert, the beautiful and tasty Arroz con Leche - although everything we had was delish. The wines were also very good - we had a rose cabernet. Service was pleasant and the atmosphere was surprisingly relaxing. We were not rushed. I would definitely recommend and return to Andanada 141
The bar was friendly, the service was good and the food was subtle and interesting. Most Spanish restaurants over season the cooks here maintain a nice balance in their food. The ambiance is nice but nothing to write how about.
This restaurant replaces two earlier Spanish places that occupied the same spot. While little has changed aout decor, ambience, etc., the food is more interesting and uniformly better.
Unfortunately with the new chef, the new menu has lost it's way. The focus has become too much on the presentation and less on the taste. The rice pudding was horrible despite the delicious cinnamon ice cream that came with it. The croquettes were good, but accompanied by a sauce that had no place on the menu. It was like frothed goat milk. I will miss the old menu.
I heard about the new opening, so I wanted to bring my girlfriend. When I was there, I realized that the chef came from a 2 Michelin starts restaurant from Spain. I was surprised.
Food was delicious. I really recommend the patatas bravas and the ox hamburger. One of the best Spanish restaurants I've ever tried.
Service, decoration and atmosphere were perfect.
We will come back soon!
An unexpected gem of a place. My guest was a 15 minutes late so I sat at the bar. The bartender could not have been more social. Wait staff was attentive without being intrusive, never felt rushed. Food was truly wonderful and beautifully presented. Would and will return again. Highly recommend.
And if you live nearby they now have a wonderful happy hour / tapas / sangria time at the bar that is great fun and more casual for before events or just if you want out of the house for a few hours. My girlfriends and I drop by now just for drinks which made me really happy.
They said that there is a new chef but food was
bad and half of things on the menu unavailable
