Food was excellent. We'd go back just for the hummus and kabobs. There were not a whole lot of people there, so maybe we stumbled on a hidden gem.

All was good , very good, I just do not understand why it was kind of empty.

Andies is a lovely restaurant. The service was excellent and the food quite good though not as good as their Andersonville location. Parking is a bit of a struggle but the overall evening was most enjoyable.

Affordable, flavorful taste of Middle Eastern Food, with lots of dishes catering to vegans or gluten-free. Nice, relaxed setting, attentive service, very friendly.

I have never had any dish that wasn't delicious. The ability to hold a conversation with your dining partner is a real asset. And the service is great; kudos to Shana, she's a delight!

Great place to eat tasty food and have conversation without shouting. The food is always perfect. I loose the Greek Chicken!

The menu was quite comprehensive, and offered an array of delicious food. Note that the menu online does not apply to the Montrose location. We opted for a couple specialist beverages, both delicious, and an appetizer of the Mediterranean "egg rolls." My date had the gyro platter and I opted for a phyllo saffron wrapped chicken with couscous. The meals where fairly large and flavorful. The restaurant was slow when we were in (late on a weeknight); but the service was not excellent. Our server only checked in 2-3 times total, including the service of meals and drinks. The appetizer was initially incorrect, then he forgot to bring our soup before the main course. So we were doing both the soup & entree at the same time... which was awkward.

The food was good; and we're fairly patient with service, so we'll likely be back. Thanks!

We dined at Andies Restaurant before a production at the Black Ensemble Theatre. It is only 2 blocks away, so we parked on the street and walked to both places. We informed the waitor that we had a time limit, because of curtain time. The service was attentive and superb. There was a water pitcher oin the table, which was promptly refilled, when needed. Courses came sequentially, but quickly, because of our time constraint. The food was tasty and the portions were ample. We can't wait to go back & try some more dishes.

Food was good. They are Byob however they charge even for beer per person to drink your own beer from a bottle. It's a joke. If you bring a coupon they charge you more for your wine!

Good choices for vegetarians and vegans along with typical Mediterranean fare.

I have been driving by this restaurant for decades. It must be ok if it has survived this long. I had a 5:45 reservation and was definitely the first to arrive. First, the bad news. The bathroom smelled horrible (like they had a sewer problem). The decor could use some updating. However, the food was ver solid. The Falafel came out quickly and was as it should be. The Salmon with Jasmine rice was fresh and delicious. I am usually not a fan of a host coming by to just check in but this was clearly the owner and he was very proud and courteous. Overall, a nice place that is worth trying.

For Mediterranean fare, this place is the best. They have dolmades that cannot be topped. Whether the small place on Montrose or the large place on Clark, I have never been disappointed.

I loved it. It was our first time there. Service was good and everyone was really nice there. We will absolutely go back.

If you want a variety of Mediterranean dishes, in a very quiet, nondescript setting and the location is convenient (street parking) give it a try. Although the food and service were fine, this place is tired.

The restaurant has changed considerably. The menu is more varied. We started with saganaki, which was tasty, and the traditional flaming presentation was well done. I had the portabella over lentil stew, which was delicious. My niece had the traditional spanikopita, which she has loved since childhood, and was not disappointed.

I miss the beautiful old wood carvings they had on the walls before, and the former owners' hospitality. However, the new staff, though not Middle Eastern, were fabulous and made the place as welcoming as it used to be.

The decor has improved a bit since they took down the painters tape. Agi still provides the best service

The new managers/owners changed the menu and added a corkage fee. I think it's foolish of them to add a fee when they are not busy every night. My friends and I like coming here because of the great service (Agi is so friendly and attentive), but I'm afraid the new changes may make people think twice about coming in
