Contemporary American
For the past 28 years, Amanda's mission has always been about replenishing the soul through delicious contemporary cuisine and providing excellent service - all at a reasonable price. Guests enter our elegantly restored brownstones and are warmly welcomed by an accommodating staff. Although geographically close to Manhattan and certainly as culinary sophisticated, we're not slow to smile and truly aim to please each guest. Our popularity stems from the talents of our chef, our dedication to warm, gracious service and the comfortable elegance of our dining rooms. Amanda's is the natural choice for so many occasions: the romantic couple on a "date to impress," a family brunch on Sunday or the place to enjoy pre-theater Early Dinner at a price that is really too good to believe. Sophisticated wine lovers enjoy our monthly five-course wine dinners.

We were six people and it took a very long time to be served our brunch. The young man who served us was kind but inexperienced to handle a large table.

We were seated on time and greeted by the hostess. Very nice ambiance and great service. The eggs were cooked just right, orange juice was fresh and lovely food over all.

Our waiter on this night was extremely professional and paid a lot of attention to us. The credit card system was down and they were so nice and apologetic for the inconvenience and wrote down our CC number to let us leave instead of keeping us. This is a very nice quite place in the busy hustle of Hoboken.

Entrees were wonderful. We had the short ribs, steak, pork chops and branzino. The appetizers were not great. Overpriced and none of us loved them. Stick to entrees. Service was good but slow at times. Would return

Went for early dinner on Sunday night. The manager and staff were so accommodating to us and our baby. They were able to find space for our large stroller and also provide a high chair. Food and service was excellent. Music selection was relaxing and the perfect volume. We had such a wonderful time. Looking forward to returning.

Date night was a complete success! The service was great, the food was amazing and the ambiance was just what I had in mind. The fact that they were playing Frank Sinatra (my boyfriends fav!) was a bonus. So glad I chose Amanda's! We will definitely return. :)

I have been going to Amanda’s for a number of years and the soup there never disappoints. I highly recommended this place for either date night or for a small family gathering.

Lovely restaurant with delicious food on Washington St. Service was excellent. Everything we tried on the price fixe early bird menu was outstanding. Just the right sized portions. The server let us take our time dining. We didn't feel rushed at all. The 3 courses were timed just right.

Amanda's is where you can take the most special honored guest to eat, and still feel comfortable and like you are at home (in your fancy, comfortable home with delicious food). The staff has a way of being precise and comforting at the same time. Wonderful experience.

There’s a new menu and while I miss some of my old favorites I now have several new ones. The omelettes, avocado toast and crab cakes were all excellent. We were smart enough to leave room for dessert.

There are few, if any, local restaurants that are so comfortable and quiet, and still reasonably priced.

Fabulous meal. Great service. First class presentation. The duck breast was excellent and the hickory smoked pork chop was probably the best pork chop I ever had. The owner Juan could not have been nicer, and our servers were terrific. Memorable evening. Great food. Can’t wait to go back

We are new to Hoboken and wanted to celebrate the engagement of our daughter. Amanda’s was a lovely setting and food fit to celebrate. The owner was so very thoughtful and sent over glasses of bubbly to mark the occasion.

Another fine meal with the kind of service you expect in a neighborhood place when you live in the neighborhood. I've never had a bad meal or an off drink there.

My family and I were celebrating my birthday and outside of my entree being disappointing, we still had a lovely time. As always the staff is wonderful and service was on-point.
I've been dining at Amanda's over 15 years but this was the first time ever that I was disappointed. I, most of the time, partake in the Early Dinner Menu hour and order the Duck Confit Ragu. The dish was tasty but I had only 2 small pieces of duck! My plate was mostly pasta.
Could it be that the cost of doing business effects the outcome of the Early Dinner Menu offerings?
I would gladly pay more for the Early Dinner Hour.
All in all, thank you for a nice birthday dinner celebration.

Celebrated my husband’s birthday but we’ve been to Amanda’s before and every evening there feels like a celebration. From the host, to waiter, to the magic in the kitchen it was wonderful...again.

Been dining here for years. Never ceases to thrill me. Service. Food quality. Just the little things like when I ask for a glass of wine they bring the bottle to the table to pour from. Just a wonderful experience

I’ve eaten here a few times for the early dinner and loved it. This time I was upset because I scheduled a reservation, as always, one to two weeks ahead of time, anticipating the menu advertised online, but instead, it was the restaurant week one which was twice the price of the regular early dinner price! I was upset that it was not on their website beforehand and that the lady who even called me that day to make sure I was still coming with my guests, did not mention the change at all.

Next time, I will be choosing a more consistent place.
