We had an excellent meal and Bruce our waiter gave us great service. We each got something different and tasted each others and all were great. I recommend Andaluce to anyone wanting a first class dining experience.

We dined with 2 other couples and all of us enjoyed our meals. The lemon roast chicken and the lamb chops in particular stood out. The staff are professional and welcoming. We hadn't been in years and were reminded why we should return to Andaluca more often!

magnifica la atención de Jhonathan y de la recepcionista interés y esmero en atender al cliente la paella fuera de serie en este lugar del mundo de lejos el plato estrella, recomendado el salmón blanco pero su guarnición no le hace honor, buena sangria volvería por la paella.

Andaluca couldn’t have been more perfect for our birthday/anniversary dinner on a gorgeous Saturday summer evening. The ambiance is quiet and romantic even when the tables started to fill up and the place was busy and every dish we ordered was delicious. I highly recommend the scallops and halibut especially and the flourless molten chocolate cake was to die for (it was complimentary and I didn’t plan on indulging but once I took a bite I couldn’t stop. Perfectly balanced flavors, not too sweet or cloying). I also appreciate their attentive accommodation of gluten free dining (separate menu that highlights their many GF options and queries about dietary choice vs allergies and need to avoid cross contamination). It’s such a nice change of pace from the usual Seattle dining options to enjoy this outstanding Spanish/Mediterranean menu, we’ll definitely be back for date nights

From the moment you walk in, the property is wonderful. All staff attentive and very polite. The food was divine from the salad to the dessert. The chef personally came to our table several times to welcome us and see if she could do anything to make our meal better. Champagne upon our arrival. We drove from Anacortes to The Mayflower to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and the entire staff could not have done more to make it an enjoyable and memorable evening!! Thank you..

Andaluca is one of my top three Seattle restaurants (Dahlia Lounge and Il Terrazzo Carmine are the other two), and I also very much like Cuoco and a few others that are usually fairly quiet. I always ask for a booth, as I have a hearing deficit, so even when the restaurant is crowded, I can almost always hear.

I used to order paella, but recently I've been ordering the pork chop, which is the best I've ever tasted. It's moist and the accompaniments are delicious. I don't like a sweet taste with meat, however, and I ask that the cherry sauce be served on the side. This time, the waiter didn't pass this information on to the chef, but when I pointed this out, the waiter immediately said it was his mistake. The kitchen removed the sauce with no sweet taste remaining, so everything was fine.

The person I came with is adding Andaluca to her restaurant list because of the delicious food, the ambiance, and the valet parking. She dines out only where guaranteed parking is available.

Thank you.
Richard

We drove from Vancouver to Seattle so that I could have dinner at my favourite restaurant, Andaluca, for my birthday. Everything was as wonderful as I knew it would be. We were recognized and welcomed back (we’ve been dining there 2-3 times a year for about 10 years), the food was delicious, as always, and the beautiful and warm surroundings made our experience very enjoyable. We will return!

The food and service were top notch. I had the Pear salad. It has nice favor mix blue cheese ,pear and hazelnuts. My Husband had the shaved Bresoala salad also very good. My Husband had the Halibut with spiced peas it was delicious. The standout was the Za'atar rubbed Pork chop. After the first bite, I had my Husband try it. It was Wonderful! So tender and perfectly seasoned! The Cherry Mostrada is fabulous! We will definitely be back.

This restaurant was recommended to me from Alix, a cook who works there. I met Alix when I worked one night, I am retired and now I Uber. Through our conversation I learned that this restaurant made Paella! Last summer we vacationed in Spain on the island of Menorca, and we came across this little outdoor restaurant that was highly recommended by the locals. The Paella was unforgetable! So when Alix told me they made Paella there I told him I was coming! We made reservations to go on my birthday and hoped that the Paella was going to be just as good as in Spain! It was! The only difference was the thickness of the blend. Between the yummy Sangria and the Paella, I had an outstanding birthday!!

Lamb chops were outstanding. The char on them was perfect. Very tasty. And less expensive and better than another Seattle restaurant where I had the same thing. The artichoke heart was a little bit undercooked and not flavorful. My wife’s risotto was ok but spinach didn’t really work well in it. The carrot soup was a little too sweet. Overall great dining and we will be back again for our third time.

The celebration dinner with friends for our 29th anniversary was made special by a quiet booth, superb service by Bruce and marvelous food from Starter to complimentary shared Dessert. We began with great cocktails and enjoyed an excellent and reasonably priced bottle of wine that Bruce recommended . This was our second dining experience at Andaluca. It will certainly not be our last.

Have been wanting to try this restaurant for years when we visit and for some reason it hadn’t worked out until now — SO HAPPY we finally tried it out ! The food is exquisite- creative, fresh, delicious. Our server Bruce was absolutely one of the best we’ve ever encountered in a dining experience. He was informative, resourceful, friendly, intuitive and had an incredible knack of anticipating our interests , meeting and exceeding our expectations in our inaugural dining experience at Andaluca. If you’re lucky enough to have his assistance in your dining experience here, ask for his help in pairing their incredible desserts with after dinner drinks - his talents are spot on! Wonderfully relaxing dining experience- we will be back!

Really enjoyed this restaurant which is attached to a restaurant. The food was tasty and hot when served. I had pork belly followed by the Petite Rib Roast which was well cooked. The wine options were good and I had a half bottle which suited me. the service was friendly and not overbearing. When I next visit Seattle I will come back.

Nice downtown location. We were greeted as soon as we entered. Our server was attentive and very helpful with selections. We ordered the Paella. It was outstanding!!! A twist on the traditional style but we really enjoyed it. I would highly recommend it. The Paella is large enough for 2 people providing you are not a heavy eater.
