    First time in Royal Oak Andiamos, have been to other locations many times. Parking was a disaster, valet was full, even that took time to establish and had parking officials harassing us. Reservation was for 8pm , did not get seated for over 30 minutes. Bar staff and hostess very friendly though. One of the meals (their steak) was served well when medium rare was asked for. They responded well but not a good first experience. Royal Oak town is not user friendly. Did not need the stress of parking.

    Amazing restaurant, the food presentation was elegant! The service staff were both attentive and kind. My husband and I came without a reservation for a quiet romantic dinner and that is what we got. That being said the only issue was the noise but not to the extent that it was problematic. You definitely get what you pay for here. Cannot wait to come back again! (P.S. The male staff are a very attractive bunch!)

    I have been singing the praises of Andiamos for over 10 years. It is my favorite. VERY upset to hear from the waiter that they are changing them all. No oil with bread, no creamy garlic dressing. Waitstaff was nice, but inexperienced and clumsy. Also hard to understand. The food was AWESOME!

    Service was ok. Good was fair at best. I asked for a different type of pasta with my dish and was told that there would be an up charge of $2 because the chef would have to make the dish from scratch, I said I hope it would be made from scratch no matter if I didn't change the pasta the fish was placed on top of! The other diners pasta course came out cold, it didn't come back until the main course came out.

    I cannot pick what the best thing about this place is... The food is high quality, great portion sizes for the price (meals actually include a great house salad or soup, awesome bread AND a pasta side!), and chefs accommodate special requests. Wine selection is broad both in price and variety. The service is always top notch!

    Took my wife for our 1 month wedding anniversary. This is a second marriage for us both. Between us we have 3 kids and two very full time jobs. It's not often we have a "date night." It was so loud, we couldn't even hold a conversation. Not sure that we will ever go back. As little as we get to go out, I would like to be able to talk with my wife. The noise level was annoying, but our server was great. Any staff that we came in contact with was professional.

    My wife and I went to Andiamo's Royal Oak for Saturday night dinner. Although we made reservations we were surprised at how many tables were available at 7:45 PM. The food was great. We each started with a glass of wine (Chianti for my wife and the house Cab for myself). For starters we had the portabella mushroom which was delicious. For dinner, my wife had the gnocchi w/chicken and I had the crab stuffed salmon which were both delicious. This was our 2nd time to the Royal Oak location and in my opinion the service is not as good as the Andiamo's downtown or in Bloomfield Hills. The only negative was the noise level. It was difficult to have a conversation throughout the meal. All in all a very good experience and we will return again.

    We were there on a Friday night and while I like live music, the band was so loud I had to yell to speak to my date. Not to mention the tables are extremely close to one another, so it's hard to have an intimate meal.

    I find the Royal Oak Andiiamo a real gem. The food is wonderful but the friendly service is second to none. Tony, the manager, makes everyone feel special. I believe that his leadership style is exemplified by his staff. So for a wonderful dining experience, I would not hesitate recommending this Andiiamo.

    Consistent substandard service at this particular location. 3rd time dining there. Service wasn't as unbelievably slow as before but but they didn't honor my opentable voucher bcuz I had a $20 bday meal. I still had $40 worth of bill left and I thought this was like a check or gift card, not a coupon. The guiseppe shrimp was burnt (obvious by looking at it) breading and the waiter tried to convince me it was supposed to be that way... As always, they sat me at a high traffic spot...and when I did mention it was my birthday, he didn't even acknowledge it. They didn't ask if I had reservations, didn't ask anything really...I'd expect more from Andiamo's and at the others, I usually get it. Overheard another guy complaining too. smh

    Location and service were good so was the calamari appetizer we had. I ordered Spaghetti with meatballs for dinner, it was a bit disappointing. I have had better tasting meatballs somewhere else before. We had good dinners at their now-closed Rochester Hills location in the past but somehow what we had here was not what I remembered it to be.

    My first time at any Andiamo's restaurant and I left a bit disappointed. I ordered the Paglia E Fieno which is chicken tenderloin, pasta, prosciutto, onions and peas tossed in a cream sauce. The peas were non-existent and there was nothing at all tender about the tenderloin. It was a half-step above tough. The flavor was nice though, and my daughter and hubby enjoyed their non-chicken meals; so I figure my dish was just off that day. Oh, and the salad was so drenched in dressing that I had to use my fork to squeeze the excess off of it. I would give them just one more try to see if they can do better; however the emptiness of the restaurant may serve as a clue. To end on a high note, prices were better than expected and service was great.

    The wine list leaves a lot to be desired. There were few bottles under $50, which to someone on a budget is very off-putting (bottle markup is 2 1/4 times list price). I went on a Wednesday night and opened a loyalty card which got me 50% of any bottle of wine. For the food, I ordered the Filet Aldo, which came out cooked exactly as I asked, and was easily in the top three filets in my lifetime dining experiences. The sides and appetizers were also very good. Service was excellent, our waitress was very knowledgeable and brought out all of the items in order, and with adequate time between each dish. I will defiantly return to Andiamo Royal Oak at some point in the future.

  • Somewhat Confusing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 4/10/2014
    Andiamos presents itself as an Italian-based restaurant however the menu contained many items that were consistent with that theme (Cajun spicing for example). Not quite what was anticipated. Preparation was adequate but not particularly inspired - would rank it as very ordinary southern Mediterranean light. Perhaps this is because of its location in a trendy "hot spot" suburban neighborhood. The veal with eggplant (had them grill it rather than use breaded eggplant) was nicely prepared; the tortellini was okay but lacked substantive flavors, the fired calamari appetizer was standard food-service stuff, salmon with pasta was one of the better dished as was the chicken with pasta pomadoro.
