Loved the view, ambience, and wonderful wait staff (Melissa) who accommodated us with enthusiasm. The risotto experience was worth the visit. Not much to dislike. Food was incredible. It's what i would expect for the high end pricing.

We were very disappointed at the service we experienced here. When you pay $300 for a lunch (without wine), you expect the food and service to be more than mediocre. I'm not talking about the complete desire to accommodate customers, I'm talking about straight forward rude attitude. I think they really don't care about how they treat their customers since...

We recently dined there for our 30th Anniversary. When making the reservations we were specific to what we wanted. Outside on the terrace watching the sun set, timing it accordingly. The hostess made no mention that she was aware of this upon arrival. Luckily there were 2 tables available although she at first tried to put us on a small... More

This is a first class resort and golf course. The service and drinks were excellent. The attention to detail is amazing. It was worth every penny.

This is now my most favorite place to dine for dinner or brunch in the OC! Definitely, 5 star resort, with all the amenities you can imagine! The service is amazing, amazing, amazing as is the food. They don't give you typical huge American portions but just enough to fill you up and everything on the menu is great! My... More

Seventeen of us had dinner in the large and beautifully appointed private dining room at Andrea. We were celebrating a milestone birthday of a good friend and the restaurant and the experience did not disappoint! Our hosts had preselected the dinner menu and offered a choice between two dishes for each course. However the risotto was justifiably mandatory! It is... More

Not very memorable, a somewhat pedestrian italian restaurant. The food wasn't particularly inspired although service was good. The restaurant was impressively busy so we may have just been there on an off day.

Andrea Restaurant was perfect for our wedding anniversary celebration. Our window table had a spectacular view of the sun setting into the ocean. The portions were small but very well prepared. The smoked duck appetizer was very good as was the red snapper caciucco. We took a walk among the grounds before our dinner and it was most pleasant.
