Andaluca Restaurant

COVID-19 Update: This restaurant is only available for takeout or delivery at this time.
Andaluca, located in downtown Seattle, is a nationally recognized culinary oasis. Resonating with the romance of the Mediterranean, its food and design have been a winning combination since 1996. Throughout the handsome space, mahogany mill work, hand painted murals and plush, deep-toned fabrics work together to conjure up a sun-baked Mediterranean grotto. One of the hottest restaurants in downtown Seattle, Andaluca features fresh seasonal Northwest foods influenced by the flavors of the Mediterranean. Chef Tiffany Layco combines strong and aromatic tastes that complement, rather than overpower.

I've been here a couple of times, and each meal was exquisite. The Spanish-infused food includes an amazing vegetarian risotto and pan seared duck breast (both of which were fantastic), a great wine list, and an overall gorgeous atmosphere. Out waiter was friendly and prompt,...and helped us decide what to order.More

Homemade chicken sage sausage is awesome but the real hit is the eggs benedict--I always get that each time we stay. An absolute must.

This restaurant is in our hotel, and we decided it was best to dine here because it was already on the late side. We did not regret our choice, for the food is excellent. We shared a butternut squash salad, my wife had the pork...chop and I had the duck breast, she had panna cotta for dessert and I a Creme Catalan. Everything was extremely tasty. The Yakima Valley wine we had by the glass was also very good. The service was unusually good, so all in all, it was a fine dinner.More

Perhaps they were just a bit "off-game" right after the Holiday and New Years rush. Went Jan 2nd for my birthday, before theater. Nice atmosphere; fairly pricey. The paella was pretty overdone, with blackish/burnt spots and very tough/chewy shrimp. Started with bread service and then...roasted butternut squash salad, which was sooo rich/gloppy/overdressed/soggy -- glad we split it; I very much like goat cheese, but calling this dish a "salad" is a bit of a stretch. Anyway, good server [she definitely perked up after we mentioned having been to Spain a few times], solid wine list for sure, and was given a complimentary dessert -- a very nice touch.More

Located in the classic Mayflower Hotel Andaluca has old world charm with dark wood and soft light and best of all is quiet! The service is smooth and relaxed with none of that "Hi, I'm Joey and I'll be taking care of you tonight" stuff....But the real reason to eat here is the food. Our waiter told us the top two entrees are the Paella and the Pork Chop. I'm a pork chop nut, have tried them all over town and would rate this one the best. It has a cherry sauce that is to kill for and comes with veggies and polenta. Unless you are a big eater no starter course is needed. Other offerings were black cod, rib roast, duck, chicken & risotto, all with a Mediterranean twist. Can't wait to go back!More

The Paella is NOT a one person event. It's one of the specialties and I strongly recommend. We also had appetizers...the olives are very nicely marinated

Was here for dinner. Place was crowded but still had personal space to oneself at a small corner. Service was attentive and warm. I ordered the duck breast with red sauce - it was well cooked with crusty skin and sauce permeating through the meat....Melbec Wine was so so for the price I would be back again for the other dishesMore

I was almost alone at 6:30am and ordered an All American. The eggs were perfect, the bacon fine and the fried potatoes soft. But what's with the burnt toast? Not like the chef was overwhelmed. I had a timeline, so didn't ask for a replacement.

The room is cozy and the tables and booths are well-spaced and service was friendly but unobtrusive. Brunch had some great and unusual items- a root vegetable hash with grilled radicchio, Hawaiian French toast, and a diced ham dish. Roasted potatoes were primo, and the...coffee refills kept coming. This was a great downtown Sunday brunch spot, not crazy busy.More

My boyfriend and I came to Andaluca to celebrate our 3-year anniversary in October. Our server was incredible, he made the entire meal so special. He offered us sparkling wine and an incredible dessert to celebrate our day, and was really attentive but not overpowering...from start to finish. I'm vegetarian and had possibly the best risotto I've ever had, and my boyfriend had the halibut and said it was delicious. The restaurant has a cozy, romantic atmosphere, lovely staff, and delicious food. I can't recommend Andaluca enough!More

Most restaurants have a corkage fee. Some just say no. Just give them a call. If you have some special circumstance maybe they allow you to bring your own wine.

Hello, I am not sure, but I would as others have suggested make reservations and ask about the fare. Whatever they serve it will be fantastic.

The menu is online - and I think most of places now a day can accommodate vegetarians
