If you like small plates this is the best in the city. My wife and I use to frequent the Amada at Revel and we were very upset when they closed. Tried their sister restaurant in Philly and absolutely loved the menu, food and service.

Our second visit to this little gem did not disappoint. Great tapas....many choices, all delicious. Egg cream dessert was delicate and tasty. Service is excellent, as was our waiter Miguel.

Our party of four visited Amada mid-week, about a month after returning home from a vacation in Spain. We were seated promptly (slightly early for our 7:30PM reservation), and our service was excellent. Started with cocktails (sangria, wine & Estrella Damm), and moved right into...More
