What's fun about this place, is the sharing, so you get to try lots of different things. Most of the menu, are small plates, and the waitress recommended 2 or 3 per person. They bring them out as they're ready, a plate here, a plate there, and everyone gets to try them, which we enjoyed. It ends up being pricey,... More

If you like this type of dining, then this is a good place. Portions are good. You will need to order about 3 items per person to have a meal. Prices are little high, but the food is good and the atmosphere is nice.

I always stop at Amada when I'm in Philadelphia! The food is wonderful and the service is always good. I was alone for an early dinner recently and sat at the bar. The bartender was charming and suggested some tapas that I hadn't tried before. This is not an inexpensive restaurant, but every bite is worth it!

Totally enjoyed a meal at Amada. Food was very good as was the service. Would go again. We were a party of 3 women and 5 plates were plenty for us.

We didn't have reservations, but were able to get a seat at the bar. I am so happy we did. The charcuterie/cheese plates were amazing. I wanted to cry when I saw the anchovies--brought back memories of living in Italy. They were perfectly prepared--I wished we'd ordered 2.

Having never dined in a authentic Spanish Style Restaurant, we had to ask what a "Tapas" was and how to order. Our waitress was very accommodating and friendly. The food was so good, unique to our palate but in a good way! We highly recommend this restaurant!

My husband and I dined here for our anniversary dinner after hearing so much about Amada over the years. We decided to splurge and get the tasting menu and we even decided to upgrade to the higher priced tasting menu. We had a 5pm reservation and figured dinner would take a couple of hours if we did the tasting menu... More

We found this in AAA book and it sounded good. It was near Independence Park by where we stayed so we were able to walk to it. It was probably our favorite of our 3 week vacation in Pennsylvania and Virginia. Wish there was one here in Kansas.

I was happy to finally make it to Amanda..it is definitely worth all the hype. I am angry at myself for not visiting sooner!! The visit was special because we were celebrating a friend's 29th Birthday (Again..Lol) & we wanted to induldge our taste buds with good food & drinks. Well, Amada didn't disappoint at all...the drinks are very tasty... More
