I had a surprise birthday dinner for my best friend at Andiamo last night, expecting "Andiamo" style quality and excellence. We were all sorely disappointed. The service was AWFUL, truly AWFUL. We waited over an hour to receive our meals, even though the restaurant was empty on a Tuesday night. There was no reason given for the delay. Our waitress... More

We have been driving the 40 miles or so from Flint to eat at this venue, one of our favorites for many years. I have chosen to write this review at this time since all vestiges of the old Mesquite Creek are gone and it is now "pure Andiamo" (a well known and well respected family of restaurants in southeast...

This appears to be a local favorite in an area that is hurting for good restaurants. People rave about their fried calamari, and with good reason. It's some of the most tender I've ever had. We also had their mushroom soup and seared tuna, both were very good. The service was personable and attentive. If you are in the area... More

This was my in-law's favorite place and we could never figure out why. Service was consistently terrible and every time we came someone's meal had to be returned because it was cold or prepared incorrectly. Very disappointing as we'd had great experiences with other Andiamo restaurants. NOT worth the relatively high prices.

succulent, done to perfection, Portobello topped piece of premium beef. I get this every time and every time I'm satisfied. The sides are very good too - but the beef so overwhelms that they fade into the background.

I have been getting together there with the family during the holiday season for the past few years. So far i have not been disappointed. High class restaurant. Nice atmosphere. Service is good. Staff are polite. Steaks and prime rib are cooked to order.

Ever since the management / ownership change the food quality has gone down hill and the prices have gone up. Still one of the better places to eat in Clarkson michigan but the food lacks spirit and imagination.

My wife and I had our first date here back in 1994. Wanted to try Clarkston Union, found that way too noisy. Tried Mesquite again and was pleasantly surprised. Wife had whitefish, I had salmon. Have a choice of sauces, I liked my wife's and she like mine better. I had the chardonnay, she had the dill (?). Shirley was... More

Definitely one of the best steaks I've ever had! Two adults ordered Filet and they were both superb and perfectly cooked to our liking. My father ordered the seafood pasta and said it was excellent, and my son's swordfish was delicious as well. The desserts were beautifully presented and decadent, and we all went away very pleased with our meals.... More

I was deciding where to celebrate an anniversary. And, after checking the reviews for many of the higher rated restaurants in the area it was decided to return to an old favorite...Mesquite Creek Restaurant. Many changes have taken place since we were last here, the menu has changed, it's smaller than I remember it, the interior decor has changed, and... More
