Diner Reviews
  • "Location is good (right off I75 but screened by large trees and within reasonable walking distance of downtown Clarkston). Nice outdoor seating. Interior is attractive. Tables not too close together. Staff was friendly. Waitress was busy and not very attentive (water glass remained empty until end of meal). Food was average for the price. Wife had shrimp scampi which was good (large, flavorfull shrimp). I had Veal Scallopini which was very average (flavorless)"

  • "was about the best I've ever had. Tender as could be with a perfect wine sauce. The bread and dipping oil was excellent. Bar service a bit slow."

  • "Since Andiamo's took over Mesquite Creek I've been there a few times. This last time was the worst. Service was poor, rude waitress, food was pretty good, not great. I've been to all the other Andiamo's restaurants several times, the menu at the Clarkston restaurant seems to be smaller, with fewer options. Most other times I've been there it has been good, but this last visit was not great. Hopefully they get into their usual swing and make this one worth the Andiamo name."

  • " Not that impressed with the change in restaurant. I thought Mesquite Creek had a better menu, had more to offer and the food was A LOT better. For an Italian restaurant, I felt the food options should have been more impressive especially now having the Andiamo name attached to it."

  • "When they first changed over to italian food was super .. Great bread dipping sauce, good portions, .lately food is lacking original taste , ranch dressing tastes like in a bottle..always was made there. Go through a lot of servers. This time he must have been new. Took while for him to come to table. Another waitress took drink orders. Wrong soup brought, had to seek him out, asked for box for salad entree. No dressing put in. He was pleasant enough. Pasta is given side with some dinner entrees .. Have to ask for it as seems to get forgotten. Sauce not as favorable. Last time I had lasagna you could see the cooked yellow egg separately in it. Not blended well."

  • "Being a Andiamo restaurant, I would have expected more in the form of service and food quality. The food was average to good - not great. Our server was good and attentive after waiting 5 minutes to be acknowledged. We arrived on time with a reservation 2, we were told a table would be available in a few minutes. Another party 2 walked in while we were waiting and they were promptly seated in the same area of the establishment. When the hostess return to the hostess stand, she asked us if we needed assistance - clearly she totally forgot about us and we were standing less than 3 feet from the hostess stand. I ordered the special of the day, after 15 minutes, I was told they had run out. Not a terrible experience, but not what I expected."

  • "The service was very good. Andrew our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. The wine was quite nice but the food itself was only fair. To me, a restaurant that charges those prices should have very good food."

  • "Well the service was slow, but noting like the weight time for the dinner. We told the waitress we were going to a concert and that we needed to be wrapped up by 7:00. We arrived by the way at 5:20. I spoke to the staff 3 times about needing our food and they said the kitchen was kind of screwed up. Finally at 7:16 our dinners arrived. My pasta, the recommended pasta on the menu was served in one large clump. It was cold and with one fork I could lift almost the entire plate of pasta in the air. It was not worth eating. The waitress did take the plate off the bill without any prompting from me. Oh by the way, I requested to see the manager twice and he/she never showed up."

  • "Had been to this restaurant a few times back when it was Mesquite Grill. While the decor hasn't changed, the menu has now that it's an Andiamo's. Initially ordered the Salmon, but they were out of it (the waitress said it was a popular dish). Instead got the Chicken Marsala, which was very tasty. The chicken breast was a bit thin, but the white wine sauce was very tasty. Good selection of wine as well. The restaurant was very busy, and there was a loud group near us, so would rate the ambience lower (the other Andiamo restaurants I've been to were more intimate). The appetizer and pizza menu looked good as well, so this could also be a good spot to go if you just want bar food (the bar area is very nice)."

  • "Wonderful choices. Dessert should be first. Though dinner was great, we could come in just for dessert and drinks. People who think they are satisfied after a meal and decline dessert are cheating themselves out of something special."

  • "After our first visit where the food was good but the service was very poor, we decided to try it again. We were very pleased to see the service was outstanding from Zach. Our meals were both well prepared. Previously we had one good and one less than good meal. Our first visit was soon after they reopened and it appears they are getting over the initial start up issues. Keep up the effort."

  • "It's hard to knock a restaurant where the ambience and is nearly perfect with excellent lighting and tables spread apart so there is always a feeling of intimacy. The service, while young and inexperienced, was well-trained and anxious to please. My date and I ordered dinner, for her salmon, for me a thin chicken breasts over a lemony sauce. The main courses were for the salt-deprived. Admittedly many diners have cut back on salt intake and are not geared for a salty course. The sauce, slathered over the chicken breasts defied anything I had experienced since I was a teen and swam into a swirling eddy in the Atlantic Ocean and came up with a mouthful of salt water. I still prefer properly salted meals but this was over the top."

  • "I swear monks masage the cows and sing them to heaven before they become an Andiamo filet because that was the most flavorful and tender steak I have ever eaten. Great value too! Good service on a date night and still family friendly environment. This is my every occasion place and weekday treat. "

  • "Main dining area was incredibly loud-terrible acoustics probably. Not feeling any ambiance. Main dining area smelled very fishy. Made reservations a week in advance and tried to seat us in a horrible location. Was shown a different table after commenting. My shrimp scampi was only okay. My husband's steak was very good. Wine list was nice. Our waiter was excellent--the best part of dining experience. Went for our 28th wedding anniversary dinner last year under different name, menu and management. Enjoyed that experience and hoped for a nice 29th anniversary dinner-sadly disappointed. Will not return."

  • "Nice atmosphere and good food, although pricing is a little ambitious for quality. Still worth a visit. My only complaint would be croutons should be bite sized and just crunchy enough to still prick with a fork; otherwise, save the bread."

  • "All was great except we requested back room for larger group and did not get seated back there. Shannon our server was very nice and did her job very well. We'll be back soon."

  • "Our recent trip to Andiamo (my first visit to this location) was horribly disappointing. I had planned a small surprise birthday dinner for my best friend. We expected Andiamo style quality and excellence. What we received was the worst service I have EVER experienced dining out. It took over an hour to bring our food to us after we had ordered. The restaurant was empty and there were only 2 other tables of people. It was a weeknight. There was absolutely no excuse for such a long wait to receive our meals. No explanation or apology was given. The waiter serving our food was unbelievably rude. My friend actually had to LEAVE the birthday dinner and have the meal immediately boxed up since it took SO long to get our food. Will not return."

  • "I was really disappointed with my recent visit. I came on Mother's Day and the food was served via buffet and was not up to the same standard as I have had at other Andiamo establishments. My reservation didn't really specify that the food would be served buffet style which seemed very inappropriate for a Mother's Day dinner. The food was cold and it seemed as though they had a Mother's Day Lunch Buffet that was just left out all day and then they tried to serve it for Dinner. The buffet was grossly overpriced - more than a buffet at the Bellagio in Vegas and it just left a really impression on me. I won't be coming back to this Andiamo and likely none of the other Andiamo establishments. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Booked a few weeks in advance to make sure we had someplace special to go on Mother's Day. Didn't know until we arrived that they were only offering a $32/person buffet. No menu service. And the buffet did not look like anything special or offer a great selection. Very disappointing that this was not known ahead of time. Restaurant called on Saturday to confirm our reservation and didn't mention the buffet-only service. We wound up leaving, wondering who in town would not have a huge wait at 6:00pm on Mother's Day."

  • "We used a gift certificate we received during the holidays. It was nice just to relax there without feeling under dressed. It has more of a casual feel when compared to the other Andiamo locations. All comfort Italian foods- "

  • "The service was fantastic. We had a great and super friendly server. They were very accommodating when we had to add another person in half way through dinner. He picked up on the fact that I didnt want my kids to have the full size Shirley Temple kiddie cocktail, so he whispered to me asking if I wanted them in the kids smaller cup with a lid! Food was all delicious and the prices were very fair.Highly recommend this restaurant. "

  • "Andiamo's new Trattoria in Clarkson replaced long-standing staple, Mesquite Creek. We have dined twice at the Trattoria and have been very pleasantly surprised both time. Someone in that kitchen really understands Italian cooking. Sauces are outstanding; meats of good quality and properly prepared; and dreamy meatballs. It is noisy, which takes away from the culinary delights. Wine list is everyday -- a few interesting Italians, but other Andiamo outlets have better on their wine lists. We'll be back for sure."

  • "This was my first time. It was ok. The main entree was good but the salad was horrible. Just taste blah. And I was very disappointes that iI had to ask for bread that was like eating a brick. I guess I'm use to the all you can eat salads and breadsticks at the Garden. The service was good though. Very friendly and nice . I would go again but not for awhile."
