This was my first time dinning at Andrea's and it was a very pleasant experience. We had drinks at the bar prior to our reservation. The bartender quick and friendly, the happy hour house dirty martini was fantastic. Once seated our waiter was there to greet us and take drink order. The... read more

They treat you like family, the food is wonderful and prepared fresh to order. The striped bass with crab was divine and the service was spot on!

Ate at Andrea's for lunch on New Year's Day. Thought it was closed because there were only three cars in the parking lot. We went in just the same. Host asked if we had reservations.

We enjoyed the entire experience. The food was excellent and the service was first rate. The atmosphere lent itself to one of the most relaxing New Year's Day in memory. Thanks for everything. Until next time.

Maybe 10-20 years ago. A traditional Italian restaurant, families are welcome, of course, because Italians are welcoming. Service earnest but hazy on what's in the entrees. Again, a reveillon menu that probably is not redone in the regular menu. Green salad was good, raviolis bolognese forgettable, duck overcooked, and they ruined the speckled trout by deep frying it and topping... More

Our family had Christmas dinner at Andreas and it was a big disappointment. We were seated promptly, but received NO service at all for 20 minutes. It took over 30 minutes for the fried eggplant appetizer to arrive. It was mediocre at best. It took another 40 minutes for the house salads to arrive, and they were good. We were... More

Our family booked a table at Andrea's for Christmas dinner. They had a special deal for appetizer, entree, and dessert for $50 a head (add $8 if you got the prime rib). We arrived for our 1:30 reservation and were seated immediately. Our server, Patrick, was very attentive, even though the place was packed. Servers were constantly present, as they... More

Should not have gone here for Christmas dinner. We were seated immediately (with reservations) in a nice, but crowded room. Paneled walls with loads of paintings and awards as well as Christmas greenery. Even though Andrea's is an Italian restaurant, we both opted for Prime Rib. That is where the service problems began. The server brought our wine, and we... More

Whenever we schedule a trip to New Orleans, my wife's first thought is to get a reservation at Andrea's. She is such a fan that she even has every one of chef's books - each one signed, of course. I - nor anyone in our party - has ever had a bad meal or a less than exemplary menu item... More
