Service is excellent. Love sitting on patio.
Food does not measure up to ambiance.
If food were improved, could be among top

A friend and I decided on a quiet post-New Year lunch and found Andrea's as a perfect place. The food was well prepared and presented. We were able to maintain New Year's resolutions on healthy and light eating and enjoy the experience. Andrea's has a fixe prix menu that provided for 3 courses with your choice of starter/salad and main course from the full regular menu. I chose a grilled Branzino and my friend had chicken. The setting is perfect for a Sunday and the service was attentive but not pretentious.

The lighting in the restaurant reminds me of a hotel lobby.
Lighting should be dimmer.
Otherwise, everything else was excellent.
Melissa, the server was extremely knowledgeable!

Andrea is the best dining in Orange County. It is quiet and reserved. The atmosphere is superb with guitar music providing a pleasant background. Most premier dining is too loud, not Andrea. Quiet conversation is possible. The seating selection of booths and tables is spacious and ideal. The overall decorating is very well done. Then there is the food. It isn't difficult to find a good steak when dining out, but the Cavatelli isn't likely to be matched anywhere. The food selection matches the overall level of quality at Andrea which is superb. The desserts are works of art. Even the cappuccino was a standout. Melissa's personalized service did not disappoint. Derrick's (GM) attention to detail is obvious as he stops by the table to chat. Every bit of the Andrea experience is serene and enjoyable. It is why we return.

The restaurant’s atmosphere was open and welcoming. Guitarist romantic music made our occasion more festive. We had a great night.
