  • "I like the ambiance of the restaurant. However, some of the the food is average. New England clam chowder and chicken and shrimp dish definitely need improvement."

  • "This place was amazing from the food and service to the romantic ambience and wonderful scenery. We sat by the window overlooking the riverfront and as it got dark out the view became even more beautiful then when we sat down. The amount and quality of food you get for the price is outstanding and the server was extremely attentive. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an amazing restaurant."
    Dined on 8/25/2014
  • "Both visits to this restaurant have been horrible. Dirty coffee cups. Dirty napkins that our fresh bread was brought to us in. Food not cooked to order. Steaks were over cooked both visits. The wait for our food exceeded 45 minutes. We were told there were problems in the kitchen both visits. A complete waste of time and money. So many better choices out there"

  • "We celebrated our anniversary here and the food was great (especially the risotto!), the service was great, and we loved sitting outside looking over the river. Perfect!"

  • "restaurant was out of several items, waiter never did bring us any bread. He offered bread at dessert when we asked if we were suppose to get bread. Food was just good, we have eaten at the Dearborn location several times and the service and food far exceeds the Riverfront location."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary, with the exception of a small mishap regarding our online reservations through open table(they didn't show in the computer); we were accommodated immediately and were able to share a beautiful intimate dinner which is exactly what we were looking for. Our dinner was amazing and so was the service. From there we enjoyed the awesome sounding band that played. Overall, Andiamo-Riverfront was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. I'd recommend it many times over."

  • "The dining experience was deliciously wonderful with a spectacular view of the Detroit River. Our waitress was friendly, bubbly and knowledgeable about the items on the menu. Also, Emilleeanne was very attentive and professional. All the dishes were fantastic!!!"

  • "Went here to celebrate a 21st birthday and noted that when making the reservation. The hostess did not say anything, and the Waitor basically did nothing to make it special. I did not expect a lot of fanfare, but some acknowledgement would have been nice, or maybe a free drink for the individual whose birthday it was. Bus staff was taking silverware near the end of our meal while we were still eating. Felt rushed and they were not busy. I would not go here for a special occasion again as they did nothing to make it special. Very disappointed."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Service was not above average and the food portion is so very small which would have been fine if the flavour had been memorable but it was not. My salmon was dry, vegetables were overcooked and starter salad was ordinary. My husband's chicken was also dry and a smail portion as well. We both left hungry. The best thing about the dinner was my cosmo and the live music. We will not be returning for the quality received versus the price we paid."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "There were far too many tables too close together for lunch, and it was very noisy and cramped. Not a nice pleasant dining experience to which I have become accustomed for Andiamo. I ordered a salad that is only made at this location and which I have had on several occasions in the past. First the waitress brought our table the wrong dishes, then my salad arrived like it had been thrown together, with very little beets, feta and the dressing was not sufficiently mixed, it was all olive oil. The waitress then began to explain to me what the salad dressing was as if I didn't know. I had to send it back and asked for it to be remade to go. The second presentation, in a plastic carryout container looked and eventually tasted much better."

  • "my wife and I celebrated our 39th. wedding anniversary. We had been there before and found the service and food to be a real delight. I would recommend it easily."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "We were celebrate a special occasion and though the service was great, the food unfortunately was very poor and extremely overpriced for the quality. It was quite a disappointment for our celebration."

  • "We had dinner on the patio on Saturday, 7-12. What a wonderful evening. The food was excellent as we've come to depend on when dining at any Andiamo restaurant (but the Riverfront is by far our favorite). I had the Beef Tips/Portabella Mushrooms with Zip Sauce and my friend had the Large Meatball - both were to die for. (When eating on the patio, folks have to keep in mind that the food might not be as hot, as it cools off quickly.) The wine was also very good as was the Up North Martini. It was also nice to see the manager, Mike, walking around checking to be sure everyone was happy. We're from downriver and it's a hike to get there, but well worth it! Thank you again Andiamo for the memorable evening!"

  • "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..."
    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."

  • "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."

  • " 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."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "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
  • "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..."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Everything was very nice. Abul was very attentive, but not overbearing. Exactly what you look for in a waiter."

  • "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"
