Diner Reviews
  • "Andrea's is a fantastic place to eat. You don't have to go into to New Orleans to get a great meal with great service. You can find it in Metairie right off Causeway Blvd. The food is wonderful. The eggplant crab cakes are a must. The cioppino is my recommended favorite. The service is to notch and Andrea, the owner/chef, came to the table to talk to us."

  • "A far cry from the fresh tasting Italian food Andrea's offered 20 years ago. Very disappointing. Sauce was too salty and heavy and the food was swimming in it. Salad was unremarkable. Mixed drink was overly sweet."

  • "Very good Italian and excellent veal dishes. A large menu with many choices. Very good service."

  • "I've read several terrible reviews lately but we have been coming for the past few years to Andreas, so we were a little worried that it might have changed something's bit it is even better. The food was out of this world. And all the staff was so nice. It is pricy but more than worth it. I recommend the crab and shrimp risotto and tiramisu. The risotto is not on the menu but ask for it."

  • "Greeted & seated immediately at 11:00 a.m. in the large dining room by friendly and professional staff. Felt comfortable & at home. Bread, appetizers and entrees arrived after a wait. The crabmeat ravioli was delicious; meatballs were light & tasty; yummy sauce; pork chop very tasty; eggplant parm was tasty, but not the typical version. Generous portions."

  • "Dinning at Andrea's is always a great dinning experience, the food is delicious and there is always something on the menu for everyone. The service is outstanding. We always ask for Santino because he makes us feel so welcome and he is an exceptional waiter. It is also very nice to see Chief Andrea making rounds. This is one of our go to restaurants when in New Orleans and especially for holiday meals."

  • "His standard offerings are solid and mostly familiar items made with high-quality ingredients. However, it's the specials that shine and get the benefit of the chef's passion. The wine list is extensive and contains a number of interesting choices."

  • "I hosted a business lunch, and we shared the grilled artichokes. They were great! I had fish, and my colleague had the roasted chicken, and both were very good. "

  • "The food was good, they were out of an appetizer we ordered and they replaced it with one of the main dishes in which several of us were going to order as our meal. Had to make last minute decisions but everything turned out good."

  • "Andrea's was recommended by our hotel in Metairie, LA. One of the best dining experiences ever. Service was outstanding! Food was great. Portions were large. Desserts were scrumptious. Chef Andrea visited each table. Would definitely eat here again."

  • "I took my mother to Andrea's for Mother's Day...she's 95 and this was our third Mother's Day celebration there. It's a new tradition for us. It's easy access for her (restricted mobility), the atmosphere is cordial and inviting, food is superb, service attentive and friendly but not fussy. She feels very at ease there, and we always have a "red-letter day" experience when we go to Andrea's."

  • "We enjoyed a wonderful evening at Andreas. We were greeted upon arrival by the maitre'd and chef Andrea. We began with a Caesar salad which was large enough to share and served to us divided already. Fresh and tasty! Our waiter recommended the Trout, which was wonderful. It was topped with fresh crabmeat and a light sauce, roasted potatoes and fresh mixed vegetables. Delicious! My gentleman was in the mood for pasta and selected the Lasagna. He said it was very good. The atmosphere was very pleasant with soft music playing. We really enjoyed our evening at Andreas and look forward to returning soon."

  • "My husband and I were looking forward to eating out for Easter since we cook for the family for all holidays. We arrived about 5 minutes early and were seated at a table right away but it took over 30 minutes before we were able to order. No one came to our table - no water, no bread, nothing. We had to get the attention of two waitstaff before our order was taken. We were served our appetizers and then entrees but the waiter neglected to serve us our salads! After the dessert order was taken, there was another long delay. I ordered coffee with my dessert and, of course, did not receive it. The food may have been better than what I remembered but it was marred but the overall experience. Never again!"

  • "We've gone to Andrea's several times -- even had my mother's 80th birthday party there. The food is consistently good and we almost always enjoy it. This time, though, it was not so good due to the server's inattention. We had to ask for water, spoons, knives -- something was missing with each course. It was a fixed price meal for Easter. One of us ordered an appetizer off of the menu that never arrived (luckily, it didn't appear on the bill either). The waiter brought each course before we were finished with the previous one so we felt rushed the entire time. There were empty tables, so I'm not sure why there was such a rush. All in all, it wasn't the pleasant experience we have come to expect and enjoy."

  • "Don't make a reservation on a Holiday. The food was cold. Took forever to get a waiter. Took longer to get the check. The tables were to close. And your reservation did not matter. We waited an hour past our time to be seated. "

  • "The restaurant is a short drive from downtown New Orleans, where we were staying. The restaurant has a homey feel. The waiter we had was attentive, but not intrusive. A bottle of the house wine was very good and inexpensive for a restaurant. My wife and I had very good meals and desserts. Parking was convenient in the restaurant's lot."

  • "Andreas is simply awesome. Great crabmeat and artichoke salad, excellent lamb chops, and awesome desserts."

  • "Chef Andrea always puts on a very good meal, but it can be a little pricey. Three can eat, with wine, for $175.00. See what I mean."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "This was probably one of the biggest waste of money I have spent in New Orleans. The food I had ordered first came out wrong because the waitress did not know the menu. My wife ordered something and was not asked what type of sides she wanted. Also after ordering a bottle if wine the waitress did not know how to open it. I opened it myself. This place is te furthest thing from fine dining. If I had to do it again I would have gone to Pizza Hut for better service."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "The menu has lots of options and the food was great. It was nice that Chef Andrea was so personable and made us feel like we were his personal guest. I thought pricing was fair, It was what I usually pay at a fine restaurant. overall a very nice experience, I will be back."

  • "My husband and I had always wanted to try Andrea's. We looked forward to going on Valentine's therefore we booked our reservations mid-January. The ambience was nice, though it could use a little updating. The food was pretty ordinary & the amount of food given doesn't measure up to the price. I ordered trout topped with crabmeat, while my husband ordered the salmon, which was served over spinach. Both were pretty bland. We spent over $100 and that's not including drinks (of any sort). We could have gone to another restaurant and spent half the amount and would have received more flavor and larger portions. Unfortunately, Andrea's wasn't worth the money, but we just chalked it up to an expensive experience."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Not sure if this is a reflection on the waiter or Andrea's but over an hour to get our entrees. The cocktails came out incorrect and our appertizers were not the ones we ordered. Will spend our money elsewhere in the future"

  • "The food was exceptional in quality and taste. The special menu for Valentines day was a nice touch, but was priced well above the normal cost of a meal for 2 that we have there. This is a fantastic place to eat and has a large variety to choose from."

  • "We arrived for our 8:15 reservation about 7:50pm. We were not seated until after 8:45pm. There were multiple people who were sat before us because of social status. I heard the seating lady say to her boss to " we need to seat these people because he is a doctor" that couple did not have a reservation, and that happened approximately 8:35. After the manager noted that we had been there for an extremely long time, we were eventually seated. Just to find that there were numerous tables that ere open and prepped. However past that, the waitress and waiter- outstanding. Food- outstanding. Just needs to work on the front end a lot."

  • "We made reservations for Valentine's day for our family including our 2 kids. They walked us to a table we were not happy with so we asked to be moved to another table and we were told they were reserved. So, then our horrible experience started. Our waiter walks away at least 2 times while we were attempting to order our food. We asked if there was anything we can order for the kids, he said NO! Not even an attempt to be kid friendly. We get our food, that was not very good for the OVERPRICED Valentine Menu. Our waiter NEVER checked on us once. I asked for the check, he comes back, puts the check in front of me and walks away. Didn't ask if everything was ok or if we wanted dessert. Horrible!!!!"

  • "This is a wonderful, old style Italian restaurant that has obviously been in business for a long time. The food was delicious. My husband's fish was perfectly sautéed and the sauce atop my perfectly cooked pasta was very well seasoned and tasty. Most of the servers were Italian, but alas not ours. He just didn't seem to be in the swing of things. Our drinks took forever to arrive as well as our deserts, but a very small criticism considering everything overall. The visit to our table by the owner/chef just topped off the evening. It shows the right amount of care by owner/chefs when this is done."
