“Very attentive staff wonderful food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

The antipasti platter was a very delicious and creative assortment of delicacies. The pasta was obviously home made and excellent. The menu was diverse and creative as well. The waiter was very personable and friendly with excellent suggestions. Good stiff drinks from the bar and a very romantic atmosphere. We hadn't been there in years but we certainly will go back more frequently in the future.

“Not what it used to be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

I have been going to Andrea's since it opened in 1983. It used to be my favorite restaurant. Over the past few years, the quality seems to have gone down, much to my disappointment. Still a beautiful place with respectable food, just not what it once was.

“Underwhelming Experience EXCEPT FOR THE CANNOLI”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

We had a groupon for this place that gave us $60 towards our bill. We still spent $30 more dollars on 1 martini, 2 entrees, 1 side of pasta and 2 desserts. The cannoli was the only memorable item. My fish entree was on the greasy side. The service was a little slow and impersonable for the price point. The dining atmosphere screams 1983.

“Excellent Italian food in Metairie.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We visited this restaurant for an anniversary dinner and really enjoyed it. I started with the seafood gumbo and my husband started with the turtle soup. Both were very good. We both had the crabmeat ravioli as an entree. The crabmeat ravioli came out with lump crabmeat piled on top. Between the gumbo, the bread that was brought to our table, and half of my entree I was full. We got the remainder of our entrees boxed up and it made an excellent lunch for me today. We will definitely return. Our entire meal, including a to-go cup of turtle soup for our kids to try, was about $65 before the tip. It was well worth the price.

“Pleasantly Surprised About How Good The Food Is”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

I have put off going to this restaurant because of previous posts that have shown it as sometimes great and sometimes goes off the track. We had a Groupon so decided to take a reduced cost chance. We were well rewarded. Our waiter Mike said there would be no problem using the Groupon for the Fall Special Menu. The choices were varied and the portions were not reduced due to the special menu. I had the Redfish D'Este and it was a wonderful dish comprised of a nice filet of redfish sauted with lemon butter sauce, capers and artichokes. My wife had a Triple Crab special that was a layered dish with fried zuccinni then a fried softshell crab topped with lump crab meat. The dessets were homemade and delicious. We look forward going again---even at full price the Fall Specail Menu is a bargin.
