    The view of the river was almost as impressive of the service by our server Nathalie. Food was amazing, it was such a cold day and the make your own pasta lunch was the perfect dish to warm us up.

    Very nice location and food was great. Service was average. A little disappointed that there wasn't a dress code enforced as we noticed people with baseball hats on and non-dress jeans etc. , just expected a bit more classy. Would highly recommend it and will be back again.

    This was the first time my husband and I have been here and it was amazing! The restaurant is beautiful, we sat by the window and had a great view of the river and Ceasars. The food was delicious, we both had the filet and it was one of the best meals we've ever had! It is a bit pricy but totally worth it! The service was great as well. We will definitely be going back!

Ask to be seated in Thelma's station if stopping in during the day on a weekday - she will take the very best care of you.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/31/2014
    We choose Andiamo's for our anniversary dinner and were expecting a lot from the restaurant. Overall I have to say it wasn't a bad choice at all. The food was amazing, not just in flavor but also in presentation. The atmosphere was very nice, my only real complaint of the evening being the people who were aloud in wearing t-shirts and jeans. Its kinda hard to enjoy a fancy night out when the guy across the way from you is wearing a tacky short sleeve shirt proclaiming the latest "I'm proud to be anti-social" motto. Its fine on the street but I expected a bit better from inside the restaurant. Despite that the service was amazing and pretty much made up for anything we really might have complained about otherwise.

    Dined on 10/28/2014
    My partner and I went to enjoy a quiet birthday dinner, however, the constant interruptions from the server and others wanting to know how the service was and if we were okay got to the level of annoyance. Once the food is served, leave the customer some quiet time to enjoy their conversation, business discussions, etc. Although the overall evening was lovely, I will think twice about returning if the interruptions are too much. In fact, I finally asked to not be interrupted for some time so we could enjoy each other.

    Nice view of Detroit River and Windsor. Never knew there were so many barges on the river on any given evening. Nice ambiance, friendly waitstaff, good food. Kind of pricey for what you get, but I'd come here again. Next time I'd use the valet; finding anything in the Ren Cen is crazy.

    We took to of our co-workers to lunch this week to recognize the work they had done on a project. The atmosphere, service and food were great. I had reserved the table on line with ease. The only thing they missed is that I had requested a table by the window. There were open tables of 4 by the window and I am not certain why they did not seat us there but other than that it was a very nice lunch.

    Pasta taste and portions were adequate. But the pasta fagoli soup was terrible; it was not the same soup I have enjoyed many times before; in retrospect it was probably a cheap substitute for the pasta special. Also the wine list is outrageously priced. Not a bottle of red under $40.00!

    This was our 1st time at any Andiamo establishment and it did not disappoint. There was a lil confusion at first as to who our server was going to be but once that was established, we were well served and fed with no complaints. The high-chair seating was different than we expected but it made for easy conversation with the people next to you. The live entertainment was an added bonus to the already great time we were having. Next time we'll be ready to light up the dance floor with the other couples.

    I specifically indicated on my reservation that we would be celebrating Gene's birthday. Absolutely NO mention or special attention was offered at check-in, nor by our server, verbally or otherwise. A candle in Gene's dessert would have been the LEAST you could have done. Most restaurants of you calibre do that and/or more. That was a disappointment...

    I have eaten at Andiamos on several occasions and had wonderful experiences. This time the experience was just okay. Three of us ordered completely different food and drinks. The drinks were good, nice presentation. First course was okay, nothing special. Entrees were delicious, but presentation was very ordinary. Desserts were mixed. Canolli was not good, but tiramisu was great. Service was slow at times.

    Didn't think that this restaurant had their heart in serving diners who order from the special menu!Was I mistaken? Upon my visit to your establishment, it was Detroit Restaurant Week? Confused that waiters did not promote the event! Regular menu was provided! Had to request special menu for Restaurant Week! Guest at adjoining table ask if there were. Any specials, and the waiter replied - and get this - NO! At another table of unsuspecting diners -

    We selected the DetroitResturantWeek Menu ($30/head). The choices were many. Our crusted white fish and veal picata were delicious. Not only were the other two courses great, but the restaurant also gave us soup or salad and a small pasta plate. We arrived at 6PM on a Monday and got a window seat. Great meal. Great night out.

    This was my first time at Andiamo. We were promptly seated, even though we arrived early for our reservation, which was nice. However the two top table where we were seated forced one of us to be in a lane of constant traffic, being bumped no less than half a dozen times. The other had an unobstructed view of part of the kitchen. The breaded calamari arrived at room temperature and I had to ask for my water glass to be refilled on more than one occasion.

    Went for restaurant week for a date night and had a great time. While it was quite busy with larger groups, the server was very friendly. The couple next to us were sort of annoyed with the wait time for their dessert/check, but we didn't mind. It really was not that long of a wait at all. The options for the restaurant week were very good - I had the whitefish, which was cooked to perfection. My boyfriend had the chicken alfredo which was very good as well. Overall, great romantic night overlooking the Detroit River! :)
