I recently took my husband to dinner at Andina for his birthday. When making reservations two weeks in advance and settling for a less than optimal time I kind of expect that I will be seated at a decent table rather than right in the fray and nearly on top of my neighboring table. Fortunately the people in Portland are such genuinely friendly people the awkward arrangement was a minor inconvenience. As previously noted, the food was well prepared and beautifully presented. I ordered the scallops from the main menu - perfectly cooked and deliciously accompanied with mashed potatoes and a beet sauce. The crab cannelloni on the side was an unnecessary extra, the temperature and consistency didn't match the rest of the plate somehow. My husband very much enjoyed the rack of lamb, good flavor, cooked to the right temperature, and again beautifully presented.
Overall it was a lovely dinner, the cramped quarters and chaotic ambiance would likely encourage me to avoid this for intimate meals in the future however.
