Four of us had a great experience at 228 on a Saturday night at 6. Everything was fresh, well-prepared, and as visually attractive as it was delicious. Definitely recommend.

We had my son's rehearsal dinner here several years ago and it has remained one of our favorite dinner venues. The dining area is small and intimate. Noise level is conducive to actually carrying on conversation with your partner.
Food and service are always good.
We do miss seeing the eggplant rollotini on the menu. And the penne ala vodka.

My husband and I are not into the loud bar scene- this restaurant is located near FSU, but offers a nice, quiet, intimate atmosphere. Really good food, affordable prices, nice wine list, something for everyone. Our only complaint was that our food was being brought out too fast (our salad arrived while we had just started on our appetizer), but when I requested slower service, our waiter took care of it. We really enjoyed our meal and would definitely go back.

This is the second time i've eaten here, the food is very good but the portions are average in size. The ingredients are good and visual display is pleasing. The service is good but sparse and best suited to a leisurely dinner. I think the restaurant tries to be more than it is but i would eat here again but not on a regular basis. The prices are ok for the quality of food but not a great value for money. Its a good 7 out of 10 for me.

Romantic in every possible way. Great staff. Great food. Great music. Set my reservation in advance for February 14th and I wasn't disappointed. Table is ready at the time requested.

Overall nice meal. Customer service was excellent! Greeting could you some enthusiasm, but we didn't have to wait. Meal was a little pricey, but it was a designed 4 course meal. Braised short rib was phenomenal. Desert was lacking something, as two of the three options were edible. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants a warm, romantic environment for there loved one.

I spent 240$ on dinner for two and have never been more rushed. The waiter hovered over us when we were clearly talking intimately so he could pressure us to order quickly. I understand the need to flip tables on a busy night but when you're a paying customer and it's a special occasion no one should be treated like that.

Also, the food was mediocre at best and extremely expensive.

We were visiting relatives and wanted to repay their hospitality; Andrew's 228 fit the bill perfectly. We all had great meals and enjoyed great company.

We enjoyed our meals at this restaurant. The homemade butters served with bread were a special treat.

Went here for the first time with another couple for a nice night out. It's a small restaurant only open for dinner below Andrew's Grill. When you enter the dining area you feel warm and welcome. It's cozy with eclectic yet upscale design and furnishings with jazz music playing. They have a fairly significant wine list and a good variety of food on the menu as well. Everyone's food was good and not terribly overpriced. It wasn't necessarily the best food I've ever eaten, but it's a cool place to check out if looking for a local restaurant with a little more character. We had the short ribs, dijon brie chicken, paella, and filet, all of which were good.

I will start off by saying the food was great however the service was terrible. Not sure if it was because we were not dressed up but they treated us like we had a disease. The waitress did not say a word to us just poured our water. I actually watched a group of waitess and the manager talking for about 20 minutes and pointing fingers at us. The staff was so unfriendly that it made us very uncomfortable

Two friends I was hosting chose the first night of legislative session, thus it was a crowded, raucous night. My actual disappointment however was that the chef couldn't handle cooking properly with the crowd. I ordered same wonderful three nights earlier grouper dinner. Was terribly overcooked vegetables and fish. Service with same waitress was about the same - not particularly attentive but calm and efficient.

Visit started well. Handled drink orders very nicely. Meals were ordered and one guest made a request to modify presentation. Specifically very light sauce on the pasta. The meal that was served was swimming in sauce. When the stealth server finally returned he inquired whether the guest wanted the meal wrapped. Made no query as to why only the chicken was eaten. An uneaten plate full of pasta, swimming in sauce raised no red flags. The guest was too polite to make an issue out of this with friends from Texas as the guests. She did comment after leaving that she never wished to return and I am certain she shared her observations with all three bridge clubs this week.

The hostess was ok. She seemed confused. Our server didn't know the wine list and had to send someone else over she wasn't that sure of the menu and had to go ask a few things before we placed the order. The food was average

I was looking for a local restaurant with good atmosphere & great food. Andrews 228 did not disappoint. Our waitress was welcoming & knowledgeable about their new wines & specials. We were able to talk & enjoy our meal. I will certainly return again & I will recommend it to others.

Great place for a special occasion, a romantic dinner, or to impress a new client. Excellent wine and craft beer list. The atmosphere was cozy and pleasant, and the service was very good. We had an issue with one of our appetizers and it was handled immediately. We had several appetizers, salads, and desert, and everything was excellent, fresh, and tasty.

We went for a family dinner during FSU parents weekend and it was perfect. We were celebrating my birthday and it was close enough to campus for a short drive yet far enough to get away from all the campus noise and activities to enjoy a special evening with our family. The food was delicious and all our dishes had amazing flavors. The desserts were a delight and everything was presented beautifully. Andrews 228 was a treasure because the ambiance was warm and inviting. It was a unique experience to be downstairs in a serene setting away from the hustle and bustle on the street. We would definitely go back again for another special occasion.

Andrews 228 is the nicer restaurant that is downstairs from Andrew's Grill. We went during FSU Parents Weekend so you had to have a reservation if you planned on getting in. We were seated as soon as we arrived and received good service while we were there. The atmosphere was nicer than most restaurants in Tallahassee. The food was just okay. Most of us had the grouper which did not come out as hot as I would have liked. It was not a wow dish but I am definitely a food snob. Other people I spoke with who ate there said they loved the Dijon Chicken which I almost ordered and should have. They also loved the Rib Eye Steak.
