I live in Tallahassee and
I live in Tallahassee and I've visited Andrews228 for a girls night out for drinks. After looking for an anniversary Dinner spot, I was recommended Andrews228 from a friend who had dinner there for her birthday with her husband. I would have to say that it was one of the best dining experience and the food was delicious. The dish I chose was the Chicken Marsala(it's not a marinara sauce), its stuffed with spinach and cheese stopped with mushrooms and nice sweet sauce. It also comes with Asparagus but I substituted it for whipped potatoes which was amazing. That meal was $18.00. Everything else ranges from 18.00 to 30 plus dollars. So be mindful that the meals are of higher price range But is worth every penny.

I'd eaten there 15+ years
I'd eaten there 15+ years ago, it was good then and still good today. It's a good up-scale restaurant that is close to the Capitol. It also has a less formal indoor and outdoor dining area upstairs that is a hot spot for locals, with a less expensive menu. Definitely worth a visit!

New Menu Items
The service was a little slow overall, but it was early and we expected everyone to be coming on shift so that was not a big problem...The menu however had a few new items and we tried those and they were great. Noteworthy was the Fried Pork Chop. It was bone in, with a spicy Gulf shrimp sauce and with mashed potatoes. My dinner partner enjoyed it so much she almost ordered a second one to take home for the next day. I ordered the strip steak with their in house made steak sauce, it was phenomenal. Dessert offerings and appetizers offered a wide variety. Can't wait to try the new onion dip with house made potato chips.

Scallop vs scallops
We had a great time and a wonderful meal. I ordered the salmon and my husband ordered two small plates or his entree, the scallop and the shrimp. I tell people now not to order the scallop. Though my husband and I laugh about the situation, we were both shocked that the scallop plate was literally one scallop. While the menu clearly says scallop and not scallops, for that price we both agreed we expected at least 3-4 at that size, 6-8 if they were smaller. -And a much smaller plate for only one scallop on top of one small grit cake! We do not hold it against the restaurant, and will definitely be back -we will just pay more attention to the menu next time.

A Nice Surprise!
I've dined at Andrew's Capital Grill often, and would wonder about 228 and what it was like. I'm so glad I finally had the chance to try it. The ambience is great, and the food was top notch. My boyfriend's steak was perfectly cooked, and my snapper dish was dreamy. There was so much food, we had to get to-go boxes! We will definitely be back!

Bar service, server speed
Bar service, server speed and time having to wait between appetizer, salad and entree would be my only complaint. Food was outstanding and priced right for the surprisingly large portions of the food. Very pleased.

Food was great, and service
Food was great, and service was very attentive, friendly, and professional, without being overbearing. My only complaint was with the crab meat provided with the snapper ... not the greatest quality and the presentation not so wonderful. However, the filet mignon my co-workers had received great reviews and the wines were tasty. Cheese board was way more generous than most, and the accompanying bread was flavorful and fresh. I requested a private, quiet corner, and it was granted! Very enjoyable experience - thank you, Andrews 228!

Andrew's 228 Steak is great!
The redeeming item of my dining experience was the perfectly cooked and seasoned rib eye. It came served on a bed of sauted kale with carmelized onions. Skip the salads and smelly fish - go for the beef!

The savory gorgonzola cheesecake and chicken Marsala were absolutely delicious. I can't wait to go back!

Andrews 228 has a lovely waiting area with a wall waterfall as you enter. It was quiet which is hard to find these days. I was met with friendly polite staff who seated us promptly. The ambiance is dim but not dark. Colorful shabby sheak. The food was delicious and our waiter helpful. Prices were reasonable. I would come back again and soon not waiting for a special occasion.

We brought our family to celebrate my son's birthday. They were attentive, made him a special drink and the dessert came with a candle. Service was great, we took our time and never felt rushed. Great experience.

No so good on second visit.
Our first visit to 228 was outstanding. The food superb and the outdoor dining was blissful - a beautiful autumn evening with plenty of energy from home going office workers dropping by for a drink with friends and colleagues.
We were so taken by the experience we decided to make a detour on our way back to SW Florida to sample the same dishes in the restaurant again. Unfortunately the weather was not so good on this occasion and we had to eat inside (basement). The basement dining area was divided into two. We were put in a section with no other diners so it was very quiet - uncomfortably so. No other diners were seated in this area until just before we left.
However in summary this is a very nice restaurant with a good menu/wine list.

I could not wait to dine at this restaurant as I had previewed the menu before hand. It did not disappoint. The crab cake appetizer had so much flavor - truly delicious. Even though there were a lot of items on the menu I could have ordered, I stuck with my original intent which was the Grouper Picatta. It had just the right amount of lemon and capers and the fish was so very tender. I love wine as well and was able to try a delicious Pinot Grigio from Italy that I had never had before and it was delicious as was the Pinot Noir from Washington State. Great find in downtown Tally!

Glad we went back
Haven't been here in over 10 years and was pleasantly surprised with the decor and excellent food! The food was always great; but, seemed even better now! Don't miss this great place when you visit Tallahassee!
