Waitress was kind but we had to ask for limes three times before getting them. Also asked for bread, was told yes we’d get some, but never did.

New Year’s Eve Gala - Booked reservation 2 weeks in advance with no mention of Gala Menu & pricing. They called the day of reservation and explained that. It wasn’t an issue because we assumed that would allow the experience to go more smoothly with the holiday. That wasn’t the case.
We were there three hours and the service was awful. I don’t believe it was that way for others who had different servers. The food was lukewarm. Our first and second courses came at the same time. We ate them with the knives brought with the bread basket because she forgot to bring us eating utensils after we asked.
In three hours our waters were refilled twice. Forget about getting anything other than water. My dessert, white chocolate bread pudding, was burnt and super dry.
There was a band, which is the ONLY reason we didn’t get up and walk out after waiting for a fork for so long and not even enjoying first two courses after waiting so long for it to arrive.
It was our 18th wedding anniversary and, most definitely, the worst dining experience of my life. The icing on it was paying $200 plus tax without complaining. For the life of me, I have to learn when to fold ‘em. It wasn’t worth half that. We are used to paying that for phenomenal food and experiences as we livid in a beach town. This was subpar food, decent atmosphere, and terrible service.
I am usually all about food photos. Nothing had a presentation worth capturing.

Went to Andrea’s for New Year’s Eve. Service was subpar. Waitress told us she was both bar tender and waitress that night. Don’t think she knew how to properly wait on a table at a restaurant of this type. It was a fixed menu since it was New Year’s Eve. She took our order for the appetizer and salad and we had to ask what about drinks. Our first appetizer came out along with our salads. We finished both courses and the plates stayed on the table for the remainder of our meal. Andrea himself passed several times by our table and not once did he say anything about the plates, that we were clearly finished with. The main course came and the food was ok. I had the tenderloin and my wife had the fish. My filet was good, but my wife said her fish was kind of dry. We took our dessert to go. The check came and the waitress handed just the paper slip to my wife. Since when do you hand the check to a lady when it clear that they husband and wife. No check presenter, nothing but the paper bill. All the plates still on the table. Since it was a fixed menu, at the cost of $95 per person don’t think we will be going back anytime soon.
We had high hopes of finding a new place to dine since it is close to the house.

When I showed up, they said they didn’t open until 5. I had a reservation held at 4 for weeks through OpenTable. I received reminder and all. We then had to scramble to find a last minute place to eat on New Years Eve. The hostess didn’t seem bothered at all by this obvious error on someone’s part. Not accommodating in the least bit…

Good server. Oyster dressing was inedible and turkey was dry- like glue. My wife ordered prime rib medium rare and it was way overcooked. She asked for another ( first I have seen her do this in 50 years) and the server agreed. Andrea came to our table and rudely pointed out that he thought it was rare-it was not. Desserts that were ordered were later not available. We have had holiday dinners there for years- never never again! A truly miserable evening .

We dined in Christmas Day 2021 at 6:30. The restaurant had been open since 10:00 am. The food was really tasty, but our waiter was very poor. Not sure if he was just tired or not experienced. The restaurant ran out of some desert options during our visit. Overall, I would eat again because of the food although I would expect way more from our waiter the next time.

To have a fine dining restaurant open on Christmas Day is fantastic. Chef Andrea never lets us down. The restaurant was packed and decorated beautifully for the holiday. Understandably, service was a bit slower than usual; but, patience is an amazing virtue.

The menu was a three course price fixe for $59. We started with the shrimp bisque that was packed with shrimp and so flavorful. I then had the redfish topped with artichokes and capers topped with a lemon beurre blanc sauce......so scrumptious. When it came time for dessert, they were out of my first choice which was carrot cake, out of my second choice..cheesecake; so I settled for the chocolate cake and my hubby got the tiramisu. They were both delicious and so rich we could only eat half of them.

Thank you Chef for being open for the holidays to serve those of us that don't want to cook and just want a respite for a quiet date night.

it was wife's 70th birthday actually on Christmas Day. I had alerted Andrea's when reservations were made, I checked with hostess upon arrival, and she said she had my request, and she would take care of it. There was nothing else ever said or done even as we walked out the door. Don't get me wrong, Andrea's was great, I just wanted something a little extra for Patty's 70th Birthday on Christmas Day.

The service was horrible. We had a reservation but had to wait 20 minutes. We got to table and waited 30 minutes to be acknowledged by wait staff. We ordered finally and then our entrees came but we had not had our appetizers. The entree was undercooked and one was not tender as prime rib should be and I never got a steak knife. Then the appetizers came but the waitress almost spilled it on my granddaughter. The bisque was very watery which is ridiculous. Then after 2 hours my granddaughters were restless so we had to get the dessert to go which took 20 minutes to get with bill then I was overcharged. The plates were hot but not the food. Unfortunately I will NEVER go here again or suggest it. Very disappointed with food n price. Way to expensive for the experience.

The restaurant was not able to keep reservation times.with the amount of customers they had booked. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant for a Christmas Day meal. We were not advised that they only provided a Prix Fix menu until we were seated and had already waited 30+ minutes over our reservation time. Food was good but not exceptional considering the type of restaurant.

Unfortunately, the restaurant was understaffed for such a busy day. Dirty dishes not removed before entrees came. Waitress was overwhelmed. One wrong drink. Took forever for coffee to come, so had to refuse it, pay bill and leave.

The service was excruciatingly slow, even for a holiday. For example, the waiter kept forgetting our drink orders. Also, the food seemed to be either from the can or previously frozen.

Very miserable experience on Christmas Day. They were obviously very understaffed ...which I understand right now in the current economy...but they should have reduced the number of reservations as a result. There was no way in a million years that the staff they had could properly serve the number of diners. The cloth the bread (which was stale) was wrapped in was obviously very dirty, but it was just bread. So, I wasn't too concerned with it. However, we sat for two hours and were never served our entrees only the soup. No one ever refilled my water glass which sat empty for an hour. A tray of four random salads were left by our table which was also close to the door leading to the restroom. The salads sat there for over 45 minutes until a server decided to randomly give three of them to a table. The fourth salad just sat on a side table next to us. Finally, we just had to give up and leave since we'd be late for our next event at this rate. Some diners who were there before us still had not received their entrees, either, and were looking fidgety at their table. We I told the hostess we'd been waiting two hours for our entrees and needed to leave now her response was, "Where else do you need to go? It's Christmas!" The whole experience showed no respect for their diners. So, we paid for the soup and drinks and headed home to eat a frozen pizza...which in retrospect, I wish we would have just done to begin with. My first and last visit here.

It wasn’t busy, we had to wait for water, bread & refill on an ice tea which normally if it were busy I’d totally understand but when I have to refill my own drinks at the table it’s an issue considering I don’t work there. Secondly, I just wanted a plain piece of grilled chicken which was $18.00 for just the meat bc I’m on keto. Again I have no problem paying for dinner I just though that was ridiculous considering a whole meal was $21.00 with grilled chicken, pasta & salad. I was told due to prices going up it costs more. This was our first & last time dining here.

I feel so bad because I think at one time this was a lovely place. Our entire meal was bland and just bad. The food was also not fresh, not homemade. The chicken park was rubbery because you could tell it had been microwaved and the flavorless. The waitstaff was just ok. For a linen service restaurant it wasn’t professional at all. The chef came out and walked the floor and my husband felt so bad he just smiled when he asked us how everything was. It was way overpriced. Save your money and head to Giorlando’s or Gendusa’s.

The food isn't comparable to its price points. Wanted a nice dinner for two but was placed in the noisy main dining room at a six-top table for some reason. Other tables seem to have service issues throughout the night, but we didn't have an issue. Andrea's is stuck in the past and needs a revamp.

The staff had recommended the lamb shank with mash potato. I was very disappointed. The lamb had been reheated. I required a steak knife and it was cold (refrigerator temperature) on the inside. This was not the fresh melt in your mouth lamb I had been expecting. A different side arrived as well - that was very average. I am British but have lived in the US for three years. This was one of the worst meals I have had. For $38 per person - I wish we had gone to Pizza Hut.

Arrived early for a 2:15 reservation. Once at table sat for 20 minutes before we got bread and water. Waiter came by twice to let us know he would be with us soon. Came back 25 minutes later. Was a set menu with several options but waiter could not answer any questions. He poured tea in my water glass to refill and never came back with a new glass of water. Extremely poor service. Food cold sent it back came back cold again. Did not eat food. As we were leaving waiter came with wrong dessert. Worst holiday meal EVER! Will never go back nor recommend to anyone!!! Price high for what you get. They are all about quantity of people they can get in and out - not quality of food and service.
