My husband ordered the osso buco lamb, I got some amazing pasta-like dish called Greek Pastichio and my friend ordered a chicken dish. We all devoured our meals. I also got wine which was great and my friend really enjoyed her specialty cocktail. Dessert was...a little disappointing as I expected more peanut butter taste in my peanut butter brownie. No worries; I still ate the whole thing -so it couldn't have been that bad. This place is the real deal. My husband's grandmother was Macedonian and he swore this was the most authentic thing he's tasted since her cooking. Also, ambiance can be everything and staff was super warm and welcoming; they had a fire going... it was so cozy on a cold winter night. I highly recommend if you like Middle Eastern cuisine -GO HERE!More

I joined a couple to dine here and was glad I did. Andie's takes the whole Mediterranean as its province and executes that notion very well. it's a spacious restaurant with a low noise level and wait staff and management that really seems to care....They are happy to explain everything, even recommending what they like. We started with a Middle East and Greek appetizer: spinach cheese pie, hummus and felafel. Greek Lemon Chicken soup followed. The woman of the trio ordered Osso Bucco made with lamb, I had the lamb tagging with couscous, and my friend had the basil chicken in a saffron sauce. All plated and displayed very well, Good wine selection; many good bottles by the glass from the Med area. I ordered retsina, not much seen out of Greek restaurants. It's made with pine resin. There are many vegetarian and vegan offerings (Moroccan eggplant, curry vegetable couscous) that there is really something for everyone, even kids. The Clark St. strip in Andersonville is getting better and better as a dining destination and Andie's -- now in that community for 30 years--still has the same chef owner Andie Tamras. See there really is an Andie. I really enjoyed my time here.More

we dined there recently just before a theater event. It has been some time since I dined at Andy's. I always thought it was pretty good. But, this time I found the meat over cooked and dry, the yogurt sauce weak and watered down. I...found it a bit disappointing.More

The food is reasonably good just not exceptional. I ate here and and at Reza's back to back and definitely prefer Andies. The lamb shank was tender and the Calamari was pretty good if not a little too salty. Service was very good and overall...it was a plwasant dinner experience.More

Loved the food. Classic Mediterranean. Service and side dishes were top notch. Loved the gyro plate, and the tzatziki sauce. Salad, was excellent as well. You will enjoy this place. Don't remember valet service so look out for parking.

We had a very nice evening at Andies. The service was excellent (thank you Tara), the ambiance warm, the food delicious and served at a reasonable pace. I was pleased to find gluten free pita bread was available as well as vegan entrees. I had...the vegetable biryani, which was very good, and my wife had the chicken shish kebob, which she really enjoyed. It was very nice to be in a warm, inviting space where it was possible to sit and talk while enjoying dinner. We will definitely be back soon!More

We LOVE Andies!!! My kids grew up going to Andies, and now they take their kids. Delicious food, warm family owned restaurant. Gracious staff. We always feel appreciated and welcomed. The kids get toys- bonus. Healthy, authentic Mediterranean food. I believe the owners are Assyrian....I ate my first Gyro from Mr. Andie back in the late 70s. We often book our large gatherings here, as we trust a good time will be had by all. Very relaxing restaurant due to superb service everytime. My favorite dishes? MOUSAKA, CURRY CHX CC, & BLACKENED SALMON. Amazing!More

I have been here before years ago but forgotten how great this place really is. Service is wonderful and extremely helpful. I inquired about substituting and it was not a problem, and no additional cost. Entrees are huge and taken with pride in appearance. Soup...or a salad is offered. Soup was lentil that day, wonderful. Flat bread comes immediately and great too. Menu is very large, prices very reasonable, loads of options including vegetarian. Completely out of my way, but will go back.More

My wife and I hosted several of our adult children and their SO's. There was a range of tastes (including vegan), and Andies had something to exceed everyone's desires. Service was fast and friendly, and the food was simply amazing. there was lots of "you...have to try this" going on, and in the end we were pleasantly full and very content. Mediterranean food cooked to perfection!More

Used to be a favorite. Had a bad experience but came back again hoping it was a bad day. Unfortunately the food was terrible both times. It would be hard to justify another visit.

We have been coming to Andies regularly for well over 15 years. There is irony to the fact the best Mediterranean food in Chicago is in the heart of Andersonville, once the heart of the Swedish community in town. But then Andies honors the heritage...of the neighborhood by serving glogg in the winter. What is it that makes Andies worthy of the highest possible rating? Start with the food, of course. Whether appetizers such as dolmates or hummus, entrees such as osso bocco, risotto or moussaka. or on and on, every dish on the menu is exquisite. Service? Superb! The staff is friendly and provide just the amount of attention necessary - you are never looking for your server and they are never loitering around your table. If you live in Andersonville and have never been, shame on you. If you live in Chicago or are visiting Chicago, you owe it to yourself to visit AndiesMore

This Andersonville gem serves fresh Mediterranean foods , as well as many traditional American favorites. It is the rare neighborhood restaurant that is popular with local families, gays, straights, and the whole panorama of diversity that makes life in the city so stimulating. Yes, the...food is equal to the causal and cosmopolitan atmosphere. Get the Spinach pies and hummus to start; had the Ground Beef Kefta and couscous for main course that was marvelous, as was the Chicken kabob with dill rice and Greek salad. Lots of vegetarian items too.They have a full bar and best of all, they are open late and have fabulous, (bargain price $29.99 ea.) Thanksgiving and Christmas time buffets.More

Decent food - have never had to wait for seating,sometimes order pickup. Disinterested serving staff usually makes in house dining drag on. Had hoped to see taramosalata on the menu- since the Montrose location (which always had it) closed.
