Andes has become our go to place for Easter Brunch when we are in Chicago to visit our daughter. With so many places to eat in Andersonville, Andes remains one of our favorite places to dine.

Vibrant atmosphere, great food
My co-workers and I had a late lunch at Andies on a Friday afternoon, and the experience was very enjoyable from the second we arrived. We were immediately greeted by a few of the friendly staff, who remained attentive and helpful through the meal. Most of our party was held up in traffic and arrived late, but we were never made to feel like an inconvenience. We were also on a time constraint and I had no issue receiving the check once requested. The menu had a pleasant variety and I loved everything I tasted, particularly the sangria and lamb burger. The eating area has an open feel and a nice, colorful motif. Everyone was pleased with their food and the general consensus was that we would return, whether together or independently.

I just came back from a vacation
I just came back from a vacation in Greece and Andies has a very authentic menu. Our entire table liked the meal.

I have always loved this place, and this time was no exception. The weather was gorgeous in Andersonville and the restaurant had it's big front windows open, allowing a gentle breeze to come in intermittently. I had the dolmades for an appetizer and it was delicious! Then I chose the pumpkin ravioli (with asparagus) for my entree and it was very good. Andie's is really the perfect place to sit and catch up with an old friend; it offers a relaxed, comfortable and friendly environment. Can't wait to go back (hopefully I'll get there a little early so I can run up the street to the Swedish bakery to load up my trunk first!)! Also, thank you for the complimentary baklava "bites" to go!! Sweet!!

Great place for Mediterranean food
The dishes here are flavorful and well prepared. And the choices are plentiful. We went for brunch and enjoyed the abundance and variety. The service was very friendly and efficient. We definitely will go back and have dinner there.

Andie's never disappoints
We have been to Andie's on many occasions, both for lunch and dinner. This time we were a group of 9 celebrating a birthday. There were several diners who had special diets, including vegetarian, vegan, gluten and dairy free. There was something for everyone. Andie's menu is varied and interesting with many choices. The food was great, service attentive, and we felt like part of their family. They even allowed us to bring in a vegan birthday cake. We had a lovely evening with family and good friends.

Diverse and fun
Yearning for meat but dining with a vegetarian? Andies covers all the bases with great Middle Eastern kabobs and fancy and sometimes spicy vegetarian dishes. Moderately priced wine list adds plenty of joy!

First Experience at Andies
Andies was a good place overall for our group. We happened to be next to another group of a similar size, who were also celebrating a birthday. The atmosphere was casual enough that we stayed for a while after our meal without feeling rushed. The waiters were friendly and efficient but didn't take advantage of our prolonged stay to offer more food options- but I'm sure we could have gotten their attention had we tried. I suspect they didn't want to be aggressive as they only made a gesture at offering dessert before whisking away the display and then left us alone. We had varying reactions to the food- some liked their meals better than others and the menu is so diverse it's too difficult to make a sweeping judgment based on one experience.
