Had a wonderful meal there. The only complaint I have is that it is a very expensive restaurant but great for a special night. The steak was outstanding. Loved the eggplant carponata that they served with the bread. Very nice touch. Good Zip sauce and wonderful creamed spinach which was not on the menu but they made for us anyway.

Table for three. We were seated at our reservation time. Attractive contemporary room with a pleasant level of background conversation. We were only ordering in the classic Italian selections, not steak. Our selections included appetizer, salads, range of entrees, special side (gnocchi), wine, and desert. Our wait person was very helpful in assisting our choices. We were pleased with all. The quality of the food preparation and service was wonderful.

Good service and good food
Quite surprised. My wife asked the waitress for an item from a previous, older menu and out of the blue, the manager showed up and took the time to track down the menu items and recipe to make the meal. Waitress was excellent and the service was first class. Felt like a much higher class of service than the usual staff there. We go about once a month. They change the menu a lot, literally as sometimes it is on an ipad, other times a regular menu. But, the food and service were first class this time around. Good job.

Service was top notch. Glasses stayed full. Tables cleared in timely fashion. Food was outstanding and the portions were above average. Thanks for making the night out with the wife a memorable time. We'd definitely go there again soon.

Italian steakhouse south of Maple
My brother and I wanted to grab a nice birthday dinner within stumbling distance of the Maple Theater, before a showing of Whedon's Much Ado movie. Google served notice that Andiamo Italian Steakhouse fit the bill and I made a reservation through the website. One thing I didn't notice on the website or on OpenTable was a notice concerning the proper formality of dining attire - though such a notice was clearly discernable as we walked to the front door of the restaurant... Fortunately, we were seated anyway. All the other customers looked nice. :) We received attentive service and our wine, food, and check seemed to come as quickly as we requested them.
I had (mis)-read the website to say that there was a half-off summer wine sale.

Solid, respectable Italian dinning.
Enjoyable as always. Good food...pasta
and sauce delicious. Tableside Ceasar
excellent. New I-pad menus with descriptions
and pictures were a fun addition.

Fine Dining with one complaint
We celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary at your restaurant and the service and food was excellent. One complaint - no Michigan wines paired w/entrees that I can recall. There are excellent wines in West Virginia too. Just improve your wine list to include more American wines. Thank you for a nice experience, we will be back.

back on track with us
We have had dinner here many times in the past until about a year ago when we had two visits that didn't seem up to par. So we tried a couple other steak houses and liked them. I received a discount coupon in my email and decided to give you guys another try. I'm glad we did because it was probably the best meal my wife and I ever had there. We spent about 170.00 on dinner and that was without wine because we are not drinkers. We will be coming back very soon.
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
A bit overpriced. Thank goodness for the summer special coupon or it would have been over the top. The porterhouse arrived overcooked but the waitress did quickly and politely have a new one arrive in record time. Kudos to the waitstaff.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food,slow service
Food was great, lots of options. However, service was slow. And food was not served to everyone at the same time. 2 people got their salads while others waited for their soup and appetizer.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
It's now a steakhouse!
Andiamo is always a special treat. Food and service were very good. Giant (32 oz) steaks are now on the menu at this location. The noise level is too high for a romantic dinner, but it's good for a group.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is expected to be
The food is expected to be great and meets expectations. The waiter didn't know about the special monthly promotion, so we
had to tell him. Then he asked his manager because it wouldn't require a coupon since it was broadcast online. I think the
management should inform their team before patrons arrive as to specials, etc.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is an Italian Steakhouse although we had seafood. The food was well prepared and tasty. Service was excellent and the staff was very accommodating as my wife has to eat gluten free and is allergic to bell peppers. Nice atmosphere although it can be energetic or even noisy. All in all it was a very nice evening.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Andiamo has been updated into a delicious steakhouse. The food is consistently delicious and hot; the service is outstanding.
Ask for Sara . . . she's great, but everyone is well-trained and accommodating. Perfect for business and family . . . it's one of the few places my husband can actually hear. They also offer incredible coupons. Just a wonderful addition to Maple and Telegraph dining options.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service.
The rib-eye steak was delicious with the zip sauce. Loved the sautéed mushrooms and onions. The service was wonderful. I would definitely return for a relaxing evening.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, but Pricy
This is an expensive place, make no mistake about that. But unlike some other expensive restaurants, Joe has very good food, prepared properly, and the server understood the nuances of my order the first time. This restaurant is not for everyone, but it's not meant to be. But if you are looking for an ideal place to celebrate a special occation, you might want to give it a try.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good, but a couple of glitches
I would have rated it 5 stars all the way because I really like this restaurant, but there were a couple of glitches I just couldn't ignore. Their computer system was messed up, so we couldn't use our gift cards or our frequent diner card to earn what would have been quite a few points. Then the wine we selected was out of stock. Otherwise, the waitress was pretty knowledgable about the details of the menu and the food was really good.
8/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
I always comback becasue of the the service and the attention to detail which is always me the customer. The food is alway prepared welll and to your liking. The temperature where I was sitting was a little too chilly and when we asked to be moved there was no hesitation there were two associates helping us move... SIMPLY THE BEST!!!!
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a reservation and were promptly escorted to our table. Drinks, appetizers, salad, pasta, and entrée were all delicious. This restaurant is on the expensive side so it is great for special occasions. It has been remodeled since the last time I was there and I plan to go back in the winter when the fireplace is on. The atmosphere is not the same at all Andiamos. We both thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Most of restaurant to loud. We were however in a quiet area and enjoyed peace

Probably the best Porterhouse I have ever had. Service was slow.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always enjoy coming here but on the evening of the dream cruise it was extra noisy and crowded. The food was wonderful but we had to wait quite a long time even with a reservation. It isn't fair to comment on the noise because of the occasion but it was enjoyable anyway.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was delicious...beautiful presentation and flavor is always consistant. Service was great.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
service was overboard...
Sara was outstanding, courteous, and a good sense of humor. We challenged her with our needs and she was on point

This ia a very good restaurant
This ia a very good restaurant in the South Oakland area. The food is properly prepared, service was very good and the atmosphere was somewhat noisy but very nice. However,note that the wine is expensive. Would eat there again with a coupon or for a very special occasion.

65 birthday dinner with Mom and Con
My Mom is 93 and said that dinner was one of the best meals she had ever had! Connie and I agree fantastic food, service, and beautiful rest great experience. The carrott cake was the best I ever had!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not a fan of Andiamo's restaurants, and never walked out with a satisfied meal! This is my second visit to the Bloomfield location and the decor is nice as well as the service, but the food was so-so. The only reason we went to Andiamo 's was the fact that I got a gift card. I like the location, Hoffa's last location. Starting off I got a disappointing salad with the most boring house dressing, I should be getting more than iceberg lettuce at a high priced restaurant. Then the meal was so-so, nothing special for a $20+ Plates. Even the others were not thrilled. So as usual, we all walked out not being impressed with Andiamo's again. Beyond the location and decor, I don't recommend eating unless you a gift card.

Met another couple and celebrated a 70th Birthday for someone special. The Prix Fixe Anniversary menu was varied and wonderful. Food exceeded expectations. Our waitress was attentive, had wonderful, engaging personality and added to our enjoyment of the evening.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Your server Sara is OUTSTANDING, the food is very good and the value with your specials/food club is quite high. The restaurant is a little too noisy.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Andiamos is always a nice experience. The filet was superb, and the grilled asparagus was a nice surprise...perfectly prepared and delicious. The bread pudding was decadent, just like it should be.
9/13/2013 5:00:00 PM
This dinner was a special offer; we invited friends to join us. Everything was wonderful and WILL do it again.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took my wife for our 44 anniversary with another couple and had a great time. Turned out we knew their live entertainment singer and were recognized for the anniversary. We had a ball!.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went for the special $79 anniversary dinner and were delightfully surprised at the quality and quantity. Our sever, Stevo, did a stellar job. We will come back very soon.
9/18/2013 5:00:00 PM
Went out to lunch for our anniversary and were pleasantly surprised. This is the best restaurant we have ever been to. Two truly satisfied people here!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went and had the special anniversary two for one deal and it was very good, went away stuffed and was a very good affordable special. Highly recommend it.

As always, we had a great time at Andiamo. Although it's not on the menu, ask for the Eggplant Parmigiana....generous portion and very, very good.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 20th Anniversary with a terrific value, food and impecable service. Highly recommended!
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very enjoyable experience. Food was excellent, as was the service. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. We never felt rushed. We enjoyed each course with ample time before the next course was served. The presentation of each course was lovely. Would definitely recommend the Anniversary special
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was an excellent restaurant to celebrate my husband's 79th birthday. We both very much enjoyed the anniversary special which gave us a chance to experience several items which we would otherwise have not ordered. The Branzino was very good and the asparagus with balsamic glaze was excellent.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
THE FOOD WAS GREAT AS ALWAYS. THE SERVER DID NOT INITALLY WANT TO HONOR THE ANNIVERSARY WITHOUT WINE PRICE. I HAD TO INSIST ON IT WHICH SHE THEN SAID WOULD BE OK.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Birthday Celebration Spot
We chose Andiamo for my spouse's birthday. We were both very well treated by the server, and the attention we received by everyone was prompt and non-intrusive. I have food allergies galore, and need to eat gluten-free, dairy-free, etc. etc. The server did an excellent job of taking me through all possibilities, and I was most happy with what I ended up with. They are most accommodating.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have never been a big fan, always seemed sort of just good but not great, but have now made two visits here in a month. cannot really compare to the other more casual locations, but I have had two great experiences here. The food has been good(a little pricey but not crazy) service from the same waiter was attentive and good and it was just a pleasant evening. We were the last ones out on halloween and only left because we both realized we were the last people there, no one asked. While this is not a stop in for a quick bowl of pasta place, for a nice night out, it is worth the extra few dollars
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
The high noise level made it difficult to hear and speak to those with us. Based on this condition, I will be cautious about returning.

Excellent Food & Service
I've been to several Andiamo restaurants and I've always had great food and great service. This was my first visit to Joe Vicari's Steakhouse in Bloomfield and the food and service was excellent! The decor and ambiance were of the caliber I've come to expect from an Andiamo restaurant.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Overall the experience is fine dining. The wine was wonderful and my entree for lunch was the prime rib sandwich which was not hot and the meat was over cooked. The salad was great my colleagues entrees looked wonderful. I was having a business meeting and other than the crying baby in the dining area which settled down after about 10 long minutes we had a good time. I would recommend but if I were not having a lunch meeting I would have sent my food back for a do over I would give it another try!
