The staff was great. Dinner was awesome. The Turtle soup was pretty good. It was the best we had while visiting New Orleans.

Just not a adequate representation of good Italian cuisine. Food was salty, scorched; super slow service.

Andrea's had a reputation for being wonderful but then a friend told me it had gone down in quality... I went hoping for the best but was not happy with my appetizer of unseasoned filet of carpaccio, entree of soggy, sour speckled trout villa d'este, and dessert of a mediocre tiramisu :( On the bright side the bruschetta was delicious...

Booked a private room, got a table in the back of the main restaurant. Food orders, all planned ahead of time, were wrong. Service was marginal, and they overcharged by almost double. We had to go to the credit card company and dispute, sending them a copy of the written contract. We got a refund, but with no apologies and... More

I took motorcoach tour groups here twice and had a great meal both times. We arranged a limited choice menu for the group, and everyone thought the food and service was outstanding. Everything was ready for us when we arrived and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening here.

This is an classic restaurant. It has been around forever. The food is old style with emphasis on cheese sauce and heavy seasoning. The service is excellent. The staff is knowledgeable about the menu. The wine list is excellent. Just do not expect a lot of light or vegan dishes. The local seafood is fresh and the pasta is excellent.... More

Nice people, feels like a family business with people that are trying hard. The food really was not at all great. We showed up on Mother's day (business in NO), only to find an overpriced "special menu". The lasagne was poor. Undercooked noodles, not tasty. They were kind enough to not charge for it, but no one in our party... More

Had a wonderful experience at Andrea's. We were welcomed and made to feel at home. Enjoyed the wonderful jazz musician in the intimate piano bar area. The food was absolutely wonderful as was the service. Highly recommend!

I swear my waiter was drunk. This is one strange place. Good strange tho. I had the Osso Bucco for the first time ever. It was incredible. Chef Andrea was out and about. Everyone tries to make you feel at home. Great place and don't forget to dress well.

...but when it's bad, it's horrid. Don't get me wrong, on the whole, I'm a fan of Andrea Apuzzo and his usually excellent restaurant. It's just that sometimes the waitstaff lacks a certain something. Like manners and knowledge. Recently I asked our waiter if Andrea's was serving bacala. He obviously did not know what I was talking about, but he... More
