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 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.

Dining at Amanda’s is ALWAYS a perfect dining experience. Dined with friends who were visiting and had never been to Amanda’s. They throughly enjoyed and said they would return.

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.

The welcome is warm, the place is lovely, the food delicious and the service perfect. We've been here many times and it's always the same--excellent!! It doesn't matter what you order, the kitchen excels. The Early Dinner is super value. The owner, Juan, is a delight and visits the tables truly to see if your meal was to your liking. This is a restaurant to visit time after time. A REAL GEM.

Chose Amanda’s out of 10 other places, so glad we did, food was awesome, loved the panzanella salad! The staff is great, made my daughters 20th birthday very special!! Brian was our server & he was friendly and attentive. Very cozy atmosphere too!!
I drove 2 hours to go to brunch with our daughter, totally worth the drive, Hoboken is so fun, we’ll definitely be back!!

Lovely spot. Pleasantly surprised to find a prix fixe menu with a nice selection and reasonable price in Father’s Day. Nice wine list and fun cocktail menu too.

Amanda's should be great. It's beautiful and immediately creates the feeling of a special event. But the food is ordinary and the service, which used to be highly professional, is sloppy, unprofessional and totally below the level of the gorgeous ambience (at least this past Father's Day).

When I booked via Open table it asked what were coming for and I clicked anniversary. I’ve written the occasion for many reservations on Open Table (birthdays, etc) but the place reserving doesn’t seem to notice or pay attention but Amanda’s did! When we were seated our dinner plates were immediately replaced with plates that said “Happy Anniversary” which was unexpected! From then on everyone wished us happy anniversary and they even wrote it on our dessert plates! The service was fast! The waiter was prompt and very pleasant! It was a nice afternoon brunch with my husband for our anniversary and we will definitely be back again!
