    We loved our food and server. Both couples had gift cards to use. We never leave a restaraunt until we are sure the cards go through. One of ours did not. The waitress was lovely about it. After about five minutes, the manager came over, apologized and thanked us. He told us it would be taken care of so we left. They could not have been nicer and it was a generous gift card. We would go again just for that reason! The food was delicious.

    Met the girls for dinner. Check in w/ the hostess, was told the table would be ready in a minute. Saw my friend waiting in the bar area. Table was ready but our third person hadn't arrived. Sat in bar area for 20 mins--- servers everywhere-no on approaches and offered a drink-- so annoying. Had to askhostess for a cocktail. Now we need to pay and sit and no one comes over again. Finally walked it over to someone at the bar. We get seated and again have to wait a good ten minutes to even have a server approach the table. Asked to split a salad w/ my friend- was handed bread plates for us to split. The service was so not what I have been used to in this restaurant. So dissapointed.

    I would highly recommend L'Andana to anyone looking for great food, great service and great atmosphere. Although a little pricey, this is the perfect spot for a special occasion. I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and they took very good care of us. The team of servers made sure we had everything we needed. The food was amazing and the pace was good...not too fast, not too slow. I had mentioned it was my boyfriend's birthday and when they brought dessert, they had a candle in one of the raspberries on the plate and had Happy Birthday written in chocolate on the plate. Would definitely go back!

    After taking 10 friends to dinner two months ago, my wife and I dined at L'Andana this weekend with another couple. The food and service were just as outstanding as our previous visit. Food was prepared perfectly and elegantly presented. The extensive wine list gave us far more options than needed and the desserts and post-dinner drinks were a great way to end a fun and enjoyable evening. Our server (James) was very helpful in discussing menu items and was attentive without being overbearing. The restaurant's GM (Hoshang Dadrass) visited our table to welcome us back and to ensure that we were being taken care of. Service and attention like this from the waitstaff and management, in addition to great food, cannot be beat.

    We chose L'Andana to celebrate two birthdays, a wedding anniversary, and a college graduation. The food and service were excellent although the waitress made the mistake of allowing one of us (me) to order a rib eye steak very, very rare (that cut of beef is too thin to be compatible with very rare preparations). The restaurant charges high prices - but the service and quality of food preparation make it a very reasonable value.

    One of the best meals I've had in quite some time. We started with the carpaccio and the four cheese fonduta, they were both incredible. The carpaccio was light but flavorful with a wonderful truffle sauce. The fonduta was incredibly rich, and the portion was huge for an appetizer - make sure you have someone to share with! I had the lobster conchiglioni for my entree - this was one of the best pasta dishes I've ever had. The homemade pasta was incredible, and the butter sauce was simple but incredibly rich. The lobster itself was great quality and perfectly prepared, and the portion was generous. Other diners had the rigatoni bolognese, the ribeye, and a pork chop special, and everything received rave reviews. Highly recommended!

    I have taken many clients here and the food is always excellent. I was a little disappointed this time because we went here for our 32nd anniversary and it just didn't seem special. Although the room was empty when we arrived we were seated near the door. Then I kind of expected the manager to stop by and toast us, or comp 2 glasses of champagne or something. The only notice was the desert that we paid for had Happy Anniversary written in chocolate which was nice. The restaurant is kind of in a weird location and if you blink you'll miss the entrance. There is certainly no view and the buildings nearby are kind of industrial. Once inside they have a very attractive dining room and the food and service excellent. Good for client dinners.

    We have been to this restaurant a couple of times and have been pleased with everything. The wait staff is very friendly and professional, the calamari was delicious and I normally don't eat raw seafood, but the salmon tartar was delicious. Some of us had steaks which they all loved, I had the bass with the crab risotto and I didn't leave anything on the plate. We split a few deserts and have to say they were scrumptious. We will definitely be back there sooner than later.

    This was our 2nd time to L'Andana and it didn't disappoint. We dined with MIL + FIL, and hubby's brother. We all ordered the steak, FIL + I had the 12OZ sirloin, BIL had the filet, hubby had the rib-eye and MIL had the Swordfish steak. We started with calamari and the meatball pasta as an app and finished with the strawberry rhubarb and the salted caramel dessert. Everything, including the service was impeccable.

Our server, James, was attentive but not hovering and he was very well educated about the menu and made wonderful suggestions. My 15 year old son can't stop talking about the bolognese - he is now a confirmed foodie as a result of this wonderful dining experience. The panna cota is amazing...

    Dined on 5/25/2014
    I was at the restaurant over memorial weekend, and I noticed a decline in the quality of my food. In particular the filet mignon. The meat lacked flavor and was cooked more than usual. The appetizers we had were good, but not the main entree. This is the first time I have experienced this and I have been there 4 times in the last 2 years. I will still give them another shot, but hope I will not have the same experience.

    My wife and I selected this restaurant for our anniversary. I informed them of this at the time of the reservation. We were seated at a very nice table along the wall and not in the middle of the dining room. Over all the service was exceptional, worthy of a five star restaurant. The food, on the other hand, was good but not exceptional. With the steep prices I expected entrées that had am wow factor, this was really nothing special. Steaks were good and well prepared, but nothing better than any steakhouse offering at half the price. Sides were okay. Calamari appetizer was the only thing above average. Dessert was wonderful. they wrote "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate on the plate, really surprised my wife and made her very happy.

    Ate at L'Andana to celebrate my son's graduation from college. Food was of excellent quality, prepared perfectly, but portions are VERY small. Potato with filet was barely the size of an egg. Desserts, however, deserve a standing ovation. Our waiter, James, was fantastic-attentive, there when we needed or wanted him but not obtrusive. Very personable. We did not like the style of seating. Part was couch-like and part were chairs. "Couch" went behind multiple tables, not our style. Despite the high quality the food was overpriced, averaging $100/person although it included 2 appetizers, 3 drinks, 3 desserts, two cappucinos and one after-dinner whiskey. For a special occasion, however, it is worth is.

    We went to Landana's for the first time and celebrated our wedding anniversary. The service was excellent, wait staff very attentive and we did not feel rushed which often happens in restaurants. The food was very good, especially the streamed, open shelled muscles serviced in a garlic light cream sauce. The only negative I would comment about is the room set up felt like a cafeteria, one large room with dozens of tables. Not a place to go for an intermit dinner for two.

    The filet mignon was melt-in-your-mouth fantastic. They cooked it perfectly to what I ordered. Pink center but not bloody. I actually got to enjoy my entire steak instead of giving the undercooked center to my husband, lover of extra rare meat, lol. The potato was not too salty, the skin was crispy and the center was fluffy. The grilled romaine was ok, the texture is still strange to me. I love salads and limp lettuce is usually a turn off for me. But the sauce (dressing?) was delicious. The prosciutto wrapped mozz appetizer is fantastic, I just wish they'd add another tomato. One just isn't enough for each bite of the mozz. Asparagus was meh. Too much smoke, tasted burnt but wasn't charred.
