Dinning out for no good reason
We arrived at shift change time I guess, as we had two servers. First was Michael, soon replaced by Justin. They were both excellent. When I ordered a manhattan cocktail, Michael immediately suggested Makers Mark which made the drink outstanding. He then suggested the ceasar's salad mixed at the table which was performed by Justin. It was great. Our steaks melted on our collective palates. Our table overlooked the river. Everything was very memorable. Justin took our picture with my cell phone which, also, like everything else, turned out great. We had dinned here before with always a fine feeling. It's a bit of a drive for us but as long as the State keeps renewing our driver's licenses, we'll keep going there.

We had a great dinner with great food and service. It was our first visit and unfortunately since we are all from out of the area, probably won't get the opportunity to return, but would do so in a heart beat!!

There were 5 of us friends that came to visit. The food was wonderful although in my opinion, somewhat pricey. The service was top notch. Mich is an excellent waiter that is attentive and he took very great care of us. Thank you

I met an old college friend there. We had not seen each other in over 25 years. The wait staff gave up room and time to catch up. We were never rushed and they had a great knowledge of the menu. The food was excellent as always and the cocktails were well mixed. I live in Sterling Heights but have dinner here whenever I am in the area.

Our server, Brittany, was
Our server, Brittany, was terrific! The food was very good, but not quite at the outstanding level. It is a generally reliable restaurant. We had some special off menu requests, which the chef readily accommodated.
6/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
They have a new menu which I missed a few items. But the food was excellent!

We were provided exceptional
We were provided exceptional service by our experienced waiter, Dave. He was very polite and attentive, and made the dinner event most rewarding and worthwhile.
For the price(s), however, the food was not as exceptional as anticipated, but overall the occasion exceeded expectations and canceled the very bad experience we had at your Livonia restaurant (which, by the way, we will never recommend...)
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
We enjoyed a beautiful evening. The food was excellent as always. The service was helpful and attentive without being overbearing. We were seated at a wonderful table by the window overlooking the river. It completed a very special anniversary celebration.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
From the valet guys to our server and everyone we met in between, everyone was so friendly and helpful. It has been quite a while since we've encountered such an attentive and helpful server. It was a delightful end to Father's Day. Thanks.

New Branding and Strengthened Menu
Our party ordered widely across menu. Ribeye steaks were fabulous, as was all the pasta and fish dishes. Shoestring fries with sea salt was a particular hit. Will return soon. The re-branding to the Joe Vicari group appears highly successful.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time and eating experience there. We did not feel rushed. Each course came in a timely manner. The food was perfectly and deliciously prepared. The server we had was fully able to tell us about any item we asked about on the menu and gave very good recommendations. A most enjoyable experience for a romantic getaway.

Very Pleasant Surprise
Although Andiamo is a a steakhouse, I had the Lobster Risotto, which was extremely flavorful and jam packed with chunks of sweet lobster meat. My only criticism would be that it was a tad too salty, which might have been due to the abundance of parmasean cheese incorporated in the dish. Starter salad was well done, and server was very professional, though a bit robotoic. The staff is obviously trained to follow a strict script and this young man wasn't straying from that one bit -- took a major effort to get him to smile. The hostess was an absolute delight.. Definitely will return on my next visit to the area.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server Justin was very nice and accommodating.. My dinner partner noticed particles of fine glass on the table as soon as we notified the server he moved us to another table with apologies of course. Then the manager, Cindy came and checked up on our well being and our dining experience. Topping off the evening with complimentary dessert. What a pleasant surprise! Thank You Both for being so gracious!
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was an excellent evening the food was prepared to everyones taste and was served in an an outstanding manner by our server JUSTIN, he was very friendly and efficient. He took very good care of each and every request. He is truly a FIVE STAR PERFORMER. Clarence Cassady

It's not really the restaurant's fault I suppose, more a decline of societal etiquette in general. But when you're dropping a few bucks on a nice dinner, it would be nice not to have shorts & flip-flops in view. At least for dinner service. Was very quiet for 7:00 on a Friday night. Other than that, was a very lovely dining experience. Don't miss the banana-caramel cheesecake and bread pudding!
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a hit!
I've visited several times and it never fails to impress. This time we had the table side prepped ceasar salad, it was fantastic!
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took my wife out for her birthday, and we had a wonderful meal. They also made a special effort for her birthday!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really great service and food
Really great service and food was wonderful. A bit pricy but we knew that going in. Great night out.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food and Service!
Our server Becky was awesome. She made sure that our evening was nice! The food was great, as you would expect at a more expensive Italian restaraunt.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Portabello mushrooms appetizer was to die for it was the best dish of the night.The wedge salad was very good also. I had the Gnocchi and added Italian sausage (which was really really good) the Gnocchi was pretty good. My sister ordered the Lobster Risoto and it was OK but not what we were expecting it to be. The waitress was very nice and accomidating. We dined outside and the 2 piece band called "Notorius" were excellent! When I go back again we would skip the Lobster Risoto.A

We chose Andiamo to celebrate
We chose Andiamo to celebrate my daughter's and my birthday and because we had a coupon. Paul was a perfect server. His timeing was perfect and he displayed the perfect balance of professionalism and humor. My dissapointment came from the Veal All Aldo that I chose as my entree. The veal tenderloins were just OK, not very tender and an odd flavor. $33 is a lot to pay for what I got. The pasta entrees and chicken ordered by the rest of our party were good. Desserts were excellent but most restaurants give you a free dessert on your birthday. We got Happy Birthday in chocolate sauce on our plates. We haven't been to Andiamo in about 2 years and seems that the only thing that has changed are the prices.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We asked for a quiet table and were graciously accommodated with a corner table looking out on a beautiful view. There were larger, noiser parties but our table was perfect for conversation. The service was outstanding and the food was very good.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our experience was fantastic. One of the best Italian dinners I've had in quite some time. Pan Roasted Chicken Breast and Potato Gnocci entrees were well done. We dined at 5:30pm on a Friday evening in order to catch a 7:30pm movie later that evening. Great plan, will do it again.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed an excellent lunch with delicious food.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed at nice couples dinner. Everything was good, the food, service and atmosphere. They also have a good happy hour.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We decided to try Andiamo's even after reading the mixed reviews on Open Table. We travel extensively and dine out at least 150 times a year. Starting off, the hostess was excellent and made us feel welcome immediately. Mitch our waiter was the definition of a customer focused employee. The food? I gambled on Swordfish in Detroit. My wife had the grilled Salmon. 2 of the finest seafood dishes we have ever had. The only negative was the wine list does not reflect their inventory. They were out of the Rubicon Cask even though it was listed. It's a pretty good wine list.

Great night out!
The food and service were outstanding for our special night out!

75th Birthday Celebration
I brought my dearest friend to Andiamo's to celebrate his 75th birthday. The food was excellent; he thought that the sea bass was very good, and I really enjoyed my filet mignon, which was done exactly the way I had specified (medium). A very nice touch was the dessert plate upon which was inscribed (in chocolate!) "Happy 75th Birthday"! The staff was accommodating in every way possible; we were the last customers in the restaurant, and I appreciated the fact that they did not rush us.
Overall, a wonderful dining experience! We will certainly be back!
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very relaxed feeling here, makes you feel at home. Food was the best i've had anywhere. Waitress was friendly, helpfull. If we needed anything she was ontop of it. Will be back again.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time to an Andiamo steakhouse, although we have been to the regular Andiamo's in Livonia and Bloomfield a number of times. It was your anniversary special that brought us in to celebrate our own wedding anniversary. The filet mignons were very good to excellent. The only hiccup was that our server didn't realize at first that there had been two offees online, one that includeda bottle of wine and one that didn't. She handled it beautifully once she checked with a manager. Overall we had a very enjoyable experience.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I had their anniversary special, everything was outstanding, it was our anniversary. This is the second time we've eaten there and we will go back.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a nice dinner with the wife on our Anniversary, I am not acustom to a two hour dinner, I just wanted to eat and then carry on with my evening, Overall a very nice place to eat, will return when I get a raise from employer...
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
we had nice first date great staff great food nice atmoshere
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service, ambience, menu.
Greeted nicely upon arrival, shown to our table quickly and professionally. Water was provided immediately upon seating and server came around frequently to check on levels. Menus arrived within a reasonable time if not sooner than expected. We ordered from the Anniversary Menu. The wine was quite good. As an appetizer, the Grand Meatball was done nicely, excellent cheese and sauce. The wedge salad was good, could have been brought up a notch if romaine lettuce was used instead of head lettuce. Branzino was fillets, not roasted whole as per main menu. Big disappointment there. Filet came with 3 dipping sauces and all were good. Asparagus had a nice sauce. Carrot cake was a large portion, moist and enjoyed. Sans Branzino, we will return.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another Good Experience
Perfect for our business dinner - casual start at the bar with appetizers and then to main dinning room where service is always excellent. Wine selection continues to be excellent and waiter gave us just the right amount of attention. Finally, the food remains consistent and excellent quality
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant was relatively
The restaurant was relatively quiet for a Friday night. I miss the old Andiamo Italian restaurant. It was much better. The steakhouse is a little overpriced. The filet was $38 without any accompaniments. We had the anniversary special which was a great deal. I hope they will bring that back.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We discovered this restaurant on a previous trip to Greenfield Village/Dearborn Inn and fell in love with it. On subsequent trips we brought relatives and friends along. Each time the overall quality of the dining experience was wonderful.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first visit to your restaurant and we had a great time. We had a great server and really enjoyed the food. We came in for your anniversary special and were blown away by its value We will come back.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
VERY NICE PLACE
THIS WAS OUR SECOND TIME AT THE DEARBORNE LOCATION. FOOD WAS GREAT, SERVER COULD HAVE BEEN A LITTLE MORE CONFIDENT, OVERALL, VERY NICE AND WE'LL BE BACK.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were greeted by friendly and upbeat staff the minute we pulled up to the building. The atmosphere was elegant yet relaxing and the food was great. The server was able to answer all of our questions and seemed to be very knowlegable of the menu
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service was outstanding. My only complaint is that the noise level was quite high and the lighting was too low
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The entire experience was wonderful, from start to finish. Great staff.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome Service! Awesome Food!
This is not my first time eating at the fabulous Andiamo restaurant and it will definitely not be my last time. Our waitor Yousef did a phenomenal job and serviced us very well. The food was outstanding, the hostesss was very cheerful and polite, and the overall atmosphere was relaxing! Thanks Andiamo's staff for being amazing!!!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic experience from start to finish. The food was amazing and the staff were fantastic. I will definitely be a return customer.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
There were four in our party, and we all ordered different entrees. All of them were delicious, from the salad to the entrée to the dessert.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
A very good restaurant
Service attendant at the very beginning was slow to take our drink order however that was a minor issue. Overall the service and food for my group was excellent and I would highly recommend this restaurant.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
My favorite for a special dinner
Joe Vicari's Andiamo-Dearborn location: I can always count on great service and atmosphere here. The food is always *outstanding.* I especially love the filet mignon. It is high quality beef and prepared perfectly. If I want to go out for a special dinner, this restaurant is the first place I think of.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food and service were absolutely fabulous! We invited friends to go with us. They had never been to Andiamos and they were truly impressed! Spacious seating, not cramped like so many restaurants. Something in ambience is missing but definitely a 4 star! Very clean and comfortable, possibly just that it is a little dated in decor, I can't put my finger on it. We will choose this over most other restaurants for sure as the variety is more than just Italian pastas. Desserts were too beautiful to pass up, totally yummy!
A good value also. Love, love, loved this place!!!!
