  • "My date and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The service was excellent and the food was delicious."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "I thoroughly enjoyed my first time visiting Andiamo - Riverfront. I had always wanted to visit this restaurant because I am a fan of Italian cuisine. Although the food was not what I expected in regards to taste, I truly have no complaints. They handled all of my needs in a major way. My girlfriend was very pleased with her birthday dinner which is all that matters because that is why we visited. It was absolutely wonderful and I would recommend anyone to visit the establishment. Thank you Andiamo."

  • "I had booked the reservation and was very excited to bring my husband for his 31st Birthday. We were early since we came across from Canada and I was very please they were able to accommodate us. I had asked for a great view of the skyline and was told we can't make any promises but we'll try. We get there and I have a view of the door jam... The photo online was was what I was expecting :( we thought we'll this won't ruin our night. We started out with 2 appetizers calamari and andiamo suppli... The calamari was ok but the suppli was very dry and cold. The pasta is served on a side dish, noodles and sauce were cold and tasted from a can. The main dish was warm but nothing I would ever go back for.. Overall a very disappointing..."

  • "The food was very bland. No real flavor on fish or chicken dish. Service was very slow."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • " The achingly slow service ruined the evening. Water, bread, taking the order, bringing the order were all tediously slow - the only prompt portion was bringing us the bills! The tablecloth had a wine stain on it and don't look down at the window sills as they were dusty and the wait staff uniforms were filthy. The food was good when we finally received it :( . Expecting so much more but was let down."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The setting was great, and food waste good. The reason I rated the food a 3 is because I found a large piece of plastic in my pasta and the steak was a little rough, other than that the food was delicious."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • " Went here for our anniversary ,would not go again. Everything was wonderful except the food. Had a Salmon pasta dish that had so much oil that it could have been drained into a cup. Made the mistake of ordering the bread pudding which was very dry and blan. Spoke with some friends after and they had the same expire emcee wish I would have talk to them first could of saved half the cost and enjoyed my meal."

  • "The atmosphere was nice, but the meals were not good. Both of our meals were returned plus the two tables around us sent their meals back."

  • "I chose Andiamo's for our special "girls' weekend" dinner prior to seeing Wizard of Oz at the Opera House. Great meals for all 3 of us, server Scott was a gem and the view was amazing. We chose to be seated inside by a window with a view. Thouroughly enjoyed our time there - - would highly recommend Andiamo's."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Filet was very good and prepared perfectly...the zip sauce was to die for. Waitress was okay but always upselling ( Appetisers, salad add-ons, dinner ad-ons, dessert, etc. ) I ordered a Manhattan and it came in a martini glass...not the way to serve a Manhattan. Very pricey for a dinner after a river cruise in Detroit."

  • "Had a super lunch with friends. It was a beautiful day to sit indoors or out. The food was delicious and the staff was very accommodating."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "I have dined at this Andiamo location, as well as others over the past 10 years. It had been 2 years since visiting the Renaissance Center location and I could not believe what had happened. Restaurant is in need of an appearance overhaul due to heavy use. Bathrooom areas were not in the greatest condition. Food was an atrocity and a total embarrassment to those who are familiar with top class Italian cuisine. Waitress was acceptable up until the food was delivered. Once there were some critical comments made, she disappeared until the bill was brought out. Will not visit again. Unfortunate, as the view of the Detroit River and Windsor Skyline is outstanding..."

  • "A great restaurant for a romantic dinner. The food, service, and atmosphere was superb. I recommend the restaurant to anyone wanting a special dinner."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Parking was terrible with no valet service that day. Had dirty water glass and when replaced the beverage tasted soapy. Our waiter never refilled our drinks and did not bring some of them until we were pretty much through with our meal."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I love Andiamo's. I had to make a trip downtown to the Fisher Building, so as it was close to dinner time, we choose Andiamos to eat. Great food. Great service. Great location."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We ate outside overlooking the river and Canada and it was a great view. Some food was great like the house dressing for the salad and the pre-dinner breadsticks. However the pasta seemed just average."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "It was the top of the dinner service and my main dish was left under the warming lamp so much that the Alfredo sauce turned yellow and stated to coagulate. The meatballs were barely cooked and rubbery. Good salad The taste was nothing special I didn't care to wait to have it remade as I had to be to work. There weren't many tables but yet I hardly saw my waiter."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Everything was very nice. Abul was very attentive, but not overbearing. Exactly what you look for in a waiter."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Andiamo is right on the Detroit Riverfront. It is amazing food in an upscale atmosphere. The food presentation adds to the overall experience. This is a great restaurant for a romantic dinner or special occasion."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Our server was very good. My friend said that her burger was the best she'd had in a long time. My lasagne was good, but not something I'll rave about six months from now. The room seemed a little shop worn; nothing outrageously bad, just a tad unkempt. Nothing seemed to sparkle. I would go again, but not at the top of my list for a special lunch or dinner."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "My seafood and pasta dish was over cooked and did not have much flavor. It was difficult to hold a conversation due to the high noise level"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "We have eaten at this Andiamo's several times but this was the first time outdoors. The service was still top-notch and the food excellent. The boats going by on the river were fun to watch."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "I mad that it took me this long to try this restaurant."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "It was convenient to staying at the Marriott. Our food was good. 2 out of 4 were great the other 2 were mediocre. Chicken was dry and meatballs were cold."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "when you have to ask for things during your entire stay, that tells me something. we had to ask for napkins. we had to ask for the bread that was promised, it finally came when we were about done with our dinner. gee, the staff was surprised we did not have any. it took 11 minutes to get my second mtn dew. I had to ask for that. more silverware was needed as they cleared it after our soup and salad. with what we paid for dinner, I expected a much better dinner and service. $30 for a small piece of chicken had better be a darn good piece of chicken. all of us were disappointed with the food. I expected to be blown away. we will not be going back, I would rather eat anywhere else"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Had an outdoor reservation but is was too windy. Thankfully host made a point to seat us by the window. Nice view of the Detroit river. My grilled chicken salad was average. I chose it because it included a goat cheese fritter. It was so small I could barely find it in my salad. My dining partner had a salad with steak tips. I had a bite and agreed with her that it was excellent. Food took a long time to get to the table."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "My husband and I dined here for our Anniversary. We were seated immediately at a nice table facing the riverfront. The server was prompt and friendly. The food was excellent, and we both ordered the filet. We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Something was amiss in the kitchen because our food took 1 hr 15 min to arrive and we did not order anything fancy. Waiter was attentive and kept apologizing saying they were backed up. This was a Saturday night at 9 pm. Restaurant was about 3/4 full. Not prime time. Food arrived and my Atlantic salmon with linguine was a congealed lump of overcooked pasta with chunks of salmon on top. I couldn't easily cut through the thick wad of pasta so did not eat that part.. My companions whitefish was ok. We finished quickly and got out of there. Very disappointing. "

  • "My wife and I recently dined at Andiamo Riverfront prior to visiting the DIA. Andiamo is a throwback to another time. The main dining room has a low-ceiling and the décor (and hence the room) is very dark throughout. Everything about the room was tired - and may have been a bit dusty as well. The food was mediocre at best. Neither the soup nor the salad served as a first course were noteworthy. Our main courses, both pasta dishes, were disappointing - the pasta itself was overcooked, and the sauces (both tomato-based) appeared to come out of a can. Our server, while "ok" (more or less), clearly would have preferred to be elsewhere. Dessert (cannoli) was ok, but the espresso was awful. Not the place to go for good Italian cuisine. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "I planned a birthday dinner for my husband, the best thing about the evening was the view. Food was terrible and service was minimal. All i can say it was an unforgettable birthday, but not in the good way! "
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "Perfect outdoor dinning on the Riverfront. It was such a nice day and we wanted a nice dinner outdoors. Andiamo was perfect. The cocktails and appetizers are really good. Dinner was okay for the price point. It was better in the past."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Every time I have had a meal at this restaurant, I have had a great experience--great food, wonderful service, and if a special occasion the staff has been attentive to the occasion. We brought another couple this time and they enjoyed their meal as well and I am sure would come back again."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Would love to have a little more pasta on the side dish, it's just a teaser. The live background music is entertaining and relaxing."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "I was in Detroit for a conference and had dinner at Andiamo one evening. I was a little nervous to see it in a shopping mall-like building, but its prime location right on the waterfront was perfect. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the food was great. A little noisy, perhaps, but well worth it for the food, the service, and the great setting."

  • "I had the Monk Fish and it was a first time but not a last. This dish was delish."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "All of our food was exceptionally good! However, the restaurant and bathrooms were downright dingy/ dirty. Also, it was very noisy and staff was intrusive. I did expect a better experience for the price and based on the awards it has received."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "This was our first time to this location and Andiamos did not disappoint. The food was incredibible. the view was great and we enjoyed ourselves very much. I would recommend scheduling a later dinner so you can enjoy the view at night. The service was excellent and we will be back for sure."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "If you are looking for a fabulous meal and an incredibly relaxing atmosphere then you must try Andiamo's Riverfront. Their service is top notch. We asked to be served the food in a certain order and with a certain timing and our waiter Tim nailed it. It was so nice. The flavoring of the food is incredible. Everything was just filled with terrific seasoning. I go here with friends from work for lunch a couple times a month. We come back to work so relaxed. My wife and I go here for dinner once a month and it is special every time."

  • "Had a seat outside the service was slow, and the street noise is something else! The view is nice the wine and food very good!"
