    We were unfamiliar with the area and used our Open Table app to find it. From the outside it does not look like much but inside it is very elegant and comfortable. The decor is nice and it is divided into several small quaint rooms. The food was excellent and the service was good. We will definitely go back when we are in the area.

    We celebrated our 37th Anniversary and we were very satisfied with our service. The food was very good especially the crab cakes which my wife ordered. The only complaint I had is my steak was not cooked properly. Andora's is our favorite restaurant and I highly recommend it.

    Hostess and manager did a nice job adjusting for a glitch in our reservation. Bar scene was nice and waitresses/bartender very attentive. Rest of the evening staff was very disappointing. Service was borderline pitiful. Place was crazy loud, hard to hear your own table. The fresh bread looked like someone cut it with a dull butter knife and then sat on it - when it came out I quesrioned if it was leftovers from someone else's table (I then saw they all looked like that). However apps and dinner were spectacular. Great taste and appearance. Great food, however can not make up for poor service. Hence why I say "take out next time" that way we can enjoy the food without the noise and poor service

    Excellent food here and a wonderful menu means that everyone at the table is happy. However, the noise level at Andora is unbelievably loud and it is impossible to hear the person sitting next to you. Great food, but the ambience is more like a bar than a fine dining restaurant. I would go back again, but only if they add acoustical treatment to the room so that it feels more like a restaurant. There's nothing worse than trying to celebrate a special occasion but needing to shout all night so that the person next to you can hear what you are saying.

    You wouldn't really know to drive by it, but Andora is a great little spot. By far the best outside dining in the Burgh. Food is always excepyltionally done and I often times can't make up my mind on what to order. Only downside is it gets noisy in the restaurant.

    Our food was very good--lots of good seafood and everything was very fresh. Our server was nice, while--perhaps--not quite as attentive as we might have appreciated. The biggest weak spot of Andora is the ambiance. It seems so ... old. The decor is not at all modern and, as 30-somethings, we feel out of place there. But if you can get past the out-of-date furnishings, you'll have a tasty meal.

    Andora's is a restaurant conveniently located in the North Hills/Sewickley area off the Mt. Nebo Exit of Route 79 North with good food and good service. It is easy to book a reservation there, even on a Saturday night. The crab cakes are their signature dish, but there are plenty of steak, seafood, fish, and pasta dishes that will please!

    the roasted beet salad was a 5 out of 5. the snapper and prawns was terrible. The fish was served with the skin. the issue was you could not seperate the filet from the skin . the prawns were served with the head and shell. again I could not seperate the meat from the shell.

    We had lunch on the patio on a beautiful day. The two tier patio with a fountain was much like a European experience. The food choices were excellent and varied. Food was prepared very well and tasted great. The service was good. The server came right away to offer drinks. Then took a very long time to return. Overall a very good experience. The server could have been more attentive.

    I met an old childhood friend for lunch at Andora's. We were blessed with a gorgeous day and were able to sit on the patio. When I made my reservation, I requested a table off to the side where we could talk and talk. The hostess granted my request and seated us at a perfect table for two where we could see the fountain yet be out of the main traffic. The food was delicious and the waitress was patient and attentive. We had a wonderful lunch and caught up on our many years apart. Thanks Andora's!

    Due to a theatre obligation, we had to take an early reservation. Had hoped to sit outside but the weather did not cooperate. Tables for later reservations were being set all around us. Because of the small dining area, for the first 15 or twenty minutes it felt like there was an extra in our party. My meal was not bad, it just didn't rise to the rave reviews I had heard from others. I was disappointed in the fish selection. With all of the restaurants around, I doubt that I would go back. The service was excellent!

    I enjoyed dining at Andora's because of the very good food and the ambiance of the patios seating. My one reservation is that I believe that the pricing is about 20% too high. I can only go on special occasions because of the cost of dining there.

    I was called earlier in the day to confirm our reservation. At the time we discussed the fact that I had requested outdoor seating and were told that it would be no problem. However upon our arrival at 6:25 for a 6:30 reservation, we were told that the outdoor seating was filled and that when a reservation is made through Open Table that they can not absolutely confirm your request if someone comes in off the street and requests the outdoor seating ahead of you, even though it was confirmed earlier in the day and we were not late arriving. We were told that since they had not over booked that evening that we would be the next table to be seated. We went to the bar and were called in a little over half an hour.
