Excellent Marinara, Delicious Mushroom Appetizer, Great Service

I had a hankering for spaghetti while in Chelan on business one night, and Andante is within walking distance of where I was staying. I entered on a quiet January night in the middle of the week and saw patrons at a couple of other tables. The ambience is delightful, with paintings of Venice, Italy... read more

We just finished with a fabulous meal at Andante's. Really nice ambiance, great meal pace. We started with the polenta appetizer. It was cooked to perfection. Nicely fried on the outside and moist on the inside. The topping of tomato, basil and balsamic vinegar was fresh and nicely balanced. Next we tried the grapefruit salad. It too was very fresh...

The more sophisticated atmosphere belies the fact that the menu doesn't live up to the level of the surroundings . Dinner of chicken picante was sub par- a couple of breaded chicken pieces in a watery lemon caper sauce . The sauce for the scampi and prosciutto was weak as well. The server was very nice but working the nearly... More

Perfect place to take a special loved one for a nice romantic dinner. Place is what you're looking for if its your anniversary or Birthday! Great food & desserts, great wine list. $$$$ But worth every penny!

Wow! Better than anything in Chelan. Atmosphere is fabulous, full bar & great wine list.... And then the food ! The seafood stew is to die for & the manicotti special with crab was equally mouth watering good. Food was fresh ~ service was out of this world..... Thanks Patti you did a great job, a night & meal to... More

Had dinner with my companion last week and she's a pretty discerning eater. She, as did I, have nothing but praise for their service and food. I've been there before and will come back again.

Adantes is a small restaurant seating only about 40 people, it's tucked away on a side street in Chelan. But what a great discovery. The restaurant is intimate with candles and nicely furnished in a somewhat modern transitional decor. There are 8 chandlers in the small dining room which add to the ambience. They have a fairly good wine list... More

I have been visiting Chelan for almost 40 years. We've seen many restaurants come and go, but Andante is here to stay. I almost hate to share how much we enjoy Andante because it is so small... Andante is our first stop most Thursday or Friday nights during the summer months. The pasta is always good. The Primavera is full... More

This is a nice looking restaurant and I am sure the folks there are well intended. A nice wine list and atmosphere. However, the food was awful. Very seldom do my wife and I not eat what is served to us but this was the case with our entrees. My wife had polenta that tasted like it had been taken... More

Andante's was a nice surprise. My wife and I were in Chelan on a short wine tasting vacation and we tried several local restaurants. Andante's was by far the best. We were there on a slow night and there was only one other couple dining when we arrived. The waiter was excellent without being overly intrusive, which would have been... More
