I had a romantic dinner here recently and everything about it was outstanding. If you are a fan of authentic Italian restaurants, you need to seek this place out. The chef is genuinely hospitable and works the room. The food was delicious, (thank you Chef for the amuse bouche, a bite sized bruschetta that set the tone for the rest of the night). And the service was worthy of the white linen on the tables. Although I didn’t go in, the bar (Capri Blu) is a great neighborhood spot with a great vibe. I’ll be back.

Andrea was great as usual. Hard to believe that he has been doing this with same level of excellence for 30 years. It seems like yesterday that he was the chef at the Rib Room. Great food and service at a very reasonable price. Yesterday he added a three course meal with many choices for $38 for Fathers Day

We had a reservation for Father's Day, so it was not the best time. It took almost an hour to be served our appetizer after we placed the order. The waitress got the order wrong for my son - another delay. The duck was overdone, the potatoes were hard and tasteless, and the dessert was nothing special. Just not a good experience.

The drinks were cheap and tasted the same. Pancakes were hard with brown edges, crab cakes looked like a small boudin round, eggs had brown lacy edges, hard bread on eggs Benedict. Biscuits were good. Will not return.

Our waiter had to leave us for long periods of time because he was having to bartend too. After waiting 30 minutes, had to ask another waiter for our check. Our waiter apologized but was so ready to leave by then, sadly his apology didn’t go far. I am sure this had to be unusual circumstances but won’t go back.

We celebrated Mother's Day early on Saturday night. Everything was delicious as always. We were early so sat in the bar for a cocktail waiting for my son and daughter-in-law. The music was fun and the bartenders very nice and attentive. Our entire experience was great and memorable. Our servers were great!!

The staff was nice and attentive, but the food was not great and too way too long (about 40 minutes). The tuna was over done and swimming in too much butter. I actually got a little sick that night from the tuna. The others like their food. We were there for my twins birthday but decided not to stay for dessert because the food took to long. we were disappointed because Andrea's is considered among the best restaurants in Metairie. Might have just been a busy day for them.

The staff was extremely nice and accommodating. Chef Andrea came out more than once to greet the guests in the restaurant. He was very nice and personable, which made you feel like you were a regular even though it was my first time there. The food was outstanding. Great flavor and a good portion size. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a hidden gem in the Greater New Orleans area!

I hate to leave a bad review because everyone at the restaurant was so friendly and welcoming. The chef greeted us when we arrived and also visited our table to ask if we were enjoying our food. The maitre d was funny and attentive. The waiter was great, however, service was extremely slow. The ambiance was great and we enjoyed the music coming from the piano bar next door. Unfortunately, the food was not great, mediocre at best and very pricey. We had a lovely evening of drinking champagne and great wine but unfortunately we will not be going back.

The lamb shank that one of my party had was fine but came with pasta instead of the potatoes as listed.

The fish with crab meat that another in our party had was fine but the square of quiche {?] that came with it wasn't good.

The duck I had was very dry and there was the problem with the "quiche".

We have eaten here before but not now.

My mother and I had early dinner reservations on Monday night, St Joseph’s Day. We were greeted by Chef at the door, his usual wonderful hospitality!
I was thrilled to bring Mom to dinner! We were disappointed, for the first time at Andrea’s.
The Oysters en Brochette were actually terrible, a very off flavor. The waiter, who was knowledgeable and excellent, was steering us to a different appetizer, but Mom really wanted that dish.
Ultimately, we were not charged for the oysters. They offered, we did not ask.
The veal and your entree and sides were superb. The Chianti, chosen with guidance from our waiter , was divine.
Dessert was good, though they were out of our first selection.
We enjoyed ourselves , but it just wasn’t quite the usual excellent meal at Andreas.
We will return !

Meal before attending the opera. We were running a little late. They were happy to oblige us and served us quickly.
Complimentary Bruschetta was a delicious surprise. Entire meal was excellent. And it’s always a treat to have the Chef Andrea come to the table and greet everyone. Makes you feel special and that he appreciates your patronage.

The food was good but the service was very disappointing. Drinks, appetizers, and entrees were all extremely S…L…O…W to come out. What’s more, two of our four entrees were not as we ordered. The Veal Chop Valdostano came without proscuitto and fontina cheese. And rather than prime rib medium rare, what was served was a ribeye, cooked medium. If this had been our first visit, we wouldn’t come back. But since we’ve had very good experiences on a number of other occasions, we will return. However, we will be S…L…O…W to do so.

This is the second time in recent years we chose Andrea's for Valentine's dinner, and Andrea's, as always, did not disappoint. The food was delicious and the service impeccable. We will definitely return soon. I highly recommend trying his signature red wine. It is reasonably priced and went well with our food, both fish dishes.
