Nice place for dinner, the service was so bad, they forgot a dish, and our main dishes took so much time. The appetizers were ok nothing amazing, but the lobster paella was amazing.

Took my grandson to lunch at Amada this week, during Philadelphia's Restaurant Week. We both enjoyed our $20 meals, definitely a bargain for 1 first course, 2 second courses and a dessert.

And the menu lived up to its promise. The atmosphere was sophisticated and soothing the staff attentive without being instrusive. The plate décor was clever and contributed to the overall enjoyment. The dessert list was comprehensive.

Amada reminded me of some of the great tapas places we tried in Spain. We did the chef's tasting menu and by the end were completely stuffed. Must haves are the cheese and honey dish, Anchovies (yes you have to try them), bacon wrapped dates, the chicken and the empenada. The sangria was pretty good but not as delectable as... More

We ate at Amada and the food/ambiance was great. I'd recommend the chefs selection and wine pairing, you won't be disappointed! So much food and we did 3 oz wine pairing; which was enough. Started off with flat bread and dip, anchovies appetizer, short rib on flatbread, crab, chorizo, scallops, paella, cauliflower, meringue dessert. I probably missed a few, but... More
