Service
 
Jose Garces’ flagship Spaniard in Old City “never disappoints” with its “fabulous” tapas, “delicious” sangria and a wine list “built to please” , served by a “knowledgeable, courteous” staff; although some report “loud” conditions and caution “your wallet can empty quickly” , most say it’s “worth it for a special occasion.”

Amada is great all the way around! If you're in the Old City and need a quick and healthy lunch? Look no further! Amada has amazing express lunch for only $15.50 with a soda/tea etc. You get a choice of a soup or salad and then salad or sandwich! The portion size is great! I can't even finish it most of the time! Super professional and hospitable stuff! Always make me feel welcomed! You can't beat their happy hour! Best sangria in the city and only for $5 dollars! Yes, you're welcome!!! Tapas (small plates) for just $5 dollars! Just try them all! They're these good!! Dinner is a unique experience! I don't have words to describe how good it is! Just try it yourself and you won't be disappointed!

We went for brunch on a Sunday. It was truly one of the most remarkable meals of my life. I've been a food service professional for the better part at 40 years. I cannot recommend it more highly. The service was outstanding

Delicious and creative tapas at reasonable prices. We ordered about 10 different tapas and enjoyed every one - the presentation was top notch as was the nuanced flavor of each dish. Our favorites were the ham croquettes, spicy potatoes, and lamb meatballs. The restaurant has a dark, woody ambiance.
